It's Tuesday. We trying to get the hustle on...but first, where is the train? #trainstationshenanigans

#Fallleaves are the prettiest

I read #ChinuaAchebe's #ThingsFallApart at least once a year, and each time, I tear up at Ikemefuna's ill-fated demise

Red lippies in full effect

Tried on what I thought was a gorgeous coat. It looked chic unbuttoned, but was quite boxy buttoned up. The coat got me looking like Spongebob's long-lost sister. 

Had to get my ceviche fix

Smoked purple

T’was a quiet Sunday afternoon. The kind that was devoid of activity. The silence of the day was deafening and the boredom was killing Chic Therapy. Though she had nowhere to go, she reached for the one thing that made her happy—makeup! She played gleefully in her pots of colors and shimmer, and cooked up quite a storm. Several moments later her face was all bright and warm with a smoked purple makeup look

Foundation:LOrealTrueMatchLuminousFoundation in Nut Brown/Cocoa | Powder: #MacMineralizeSkinFinish in deep dark | Blush and highlighter:#Ellentracy bronzing trio. 
Inner eyeshadow: Forever21 pink/gold baked eyeshadow |  Brown bone and crease: toofaced Natural matte palette | Purple and Black shade: #BHcosmetic 70s
 LAGirlCosmetics matte liquid lipstick in in timelss Revlon UltraHDLipLacquer in Petalite

There are two sets of pictures in the post, and you may notice a difference between the two. The first three solo pictures were captured with my DSLR camera.These pictures  are more realistic and closely depict what the makeup and my skin really looked like at that point. The second set of picture (the last three & titled collage), were taken with my phone camera. My phone camera always blurs the skin, thus making it look extremely perfect.  

Hope you all liked this make up look. It's one of the few makeup looks that I love wholeheartedly . Please leave your comment below and let me know what you think. Enjoy the rest of the week.

Halloween in Salem Witch Village

Sadly, another Monday is here *insert sad face*, but I hope you all had a fabulous Halloween weekend. Did you guys get to do any fun stuff? As for me I visited Salem Witch Village with a bunch of friends.

Salem is a city in North Shore, Massachusetts, and because of the 1692 witch trials, it is known as the Halloween hotspot of America. I’d always wanted to visit, and I thought Halloween would be the perfect time. Asides, pushing and shoving my way through 70,000 tourists (yes you heard right), my time there was spookily fun. I visited two haunted houses, rode a Ferris wheel (remind me to never do this again!), and had the best cheese fries ever! I also had a great time people watching and observing some of the creative costumes. 

A lot of the outfits were fascinating, and you could tell that a considerable amount of effort was put into these costumes. I on the other hand, took the easy route and "dressed up” as a bunny. Well, bunny ears and bowtie count as a costume, right?

Below are pictures of my time in Salem. Have a fantastic week guys.
Happy Bunny

That's all folks. Have a great week
