October Blog Hop: A Spooktacular Beauty Blog Hop!

Last month my beauty & fashion bloggers group took a brief hiatus from our monthly blog hops. We’re back this month for a Spooktacular Beauty Blog Hop with an obviously Halloween theme. Halloween has always held a unique place in my heart because my birthday is just a few days before. I can’t tell you how many Halloween themed birthday celebrations I’ve had over the years.

Halloween is one day a year where you can let your inner monster (or princess, for that matter) run around unfettered. But why limit yourself to just one day a year? Why not keep a little bit of Halloween with you all the time? This October 13th, I thought I’d pick 13 Halloween inspired items to help you keep that vibe going for more than one day in October.

Once upon a time, long, long ago, Lisa attended Syracuse University where she studied singing in a giant castle surrounded by ice and snow. After she earned her music degree, she headed to the island of Manhattan, down to the West Village, to a place called the New School. There, she earned another degree in the great art of writing stories for children. She currently works on that same island, in the dungeon of an old building, making up stories while she sorts through endless stacks of papers, just dreaming of working somewhere with windows. She is currently working on several novels and hopes to write her way to that aforementioned windowed place. Her first book, “The Ice Maiden’s Tale,” a fairy tale adventure was released on May 30, 2017 and is up for sale on Amazon. In the meantime, she keeps herself occupied by obsessing over subscription boxes and home renovations.

  1. I LOVE this list!! So many unique products that are great for anytime of the year. I love that Gold Cuff, that Butter London set (yes please!) and the Start Wars tee. 🙂

    • I’m dying for that Butter London Set. My birthday is this month and I keep fighting the urge to buy myself too many presents. I actually have that gold cuff (it came in a Fancy box) and it’s a great statement piece.

  2. All great choices here! Really loving the Vampire polish and Maleficent Lipgloss. I’ve always wanted the One Ring!!! I think that would be so fun to wear around.

  3. What a great idea for this Blog Hop! I love #1 the most – that Ouija Board dress is awesome. I wish it were a little less expensive; I would totally buy it. As it is, it’s too much for me to spend on something that I wouldn’t get a ton of use out of. Bummer.
    I love that scarf too – that would be fun for when you don’t want to wear a costume, but still want to show some Halloween spirit.

    • The dress is definitely more spendy than I would like but Modcloth frequently has great sales so maybe add it to your wishlist and stalk it. I just grabbed some Jeffrey Campbell shoes that were over $120 for $59, so things do get marked down quite a bit!
