Five Friday Faves for October 2020

I'm aiming at doing this type of post once a month. The last one was at the beginning of September. I think it's a fun way to share a few favorites that don't normally make it into a favorites post otherwise.

Small Sephora Haul ft. Blume, Pat McGrath Labs, and First Aid Beauty

I haven't bought anything from Sephora recently and I wanted to try out a new Canadian brand called Blume. Then, two other things *fell* into my cart because you know- free shipping at $50 and whatnot. 😜 I'm excited about what I got because those other two things had been on my wishlist for some time and I can finally call them mine. This is just going to be a short and sweet post showing you what I got and maybe a few first impressions, but the rest will be saved for after I've tried the products a longer time and give them a dedicated post. So here's what I got!

This Is Halloween Playlist

Something fun for today! I thought I would share my Halloween playlist from Spotify. I'm still actively adding to it so if you have any fun ones to add, send 'em my way! I've linked my actual playlist in this post and you can see everything I have so far. This post is to show off some of my personal favorites from the list. A few obvious and not-so-obvious choices!

What are your plans for Halloween? They've suggested canceling most plans where I am, which is fine with me. We typically take in a haunted walk, fort tour, ride around to see decorated houses, or something along those lines but I'm just as happy to stay in and watch Halloween themed shows/episodes and movies. It's going to be a strange holiday season, for sure.

This may not seem like an obvious choice, but hear me out. It's one of my absolute faves of Fleetwood Mac's year-round, but it fits in with Halloween. The lyrics, "Time cast a spell on you, but you won't forget me" and "I follow you down until the sound of my voice will haunt you"? Genius. Stevie at her finest, in my humble opinion.

Michael Jackson - Thriller
Shocker, huh? Classic for a reason.

Selena Gomez - Wolves
"I've been down the darkest alleys, saw the dark side of the moon, to get to you."

Annie Lennox - I Put a Spell On You
So many versions of this song and Bette's is certainly up there from Hocus Pocus. I just think that Annie's voice is beautifully haunting on anything and everything.

The Rocky Horror Picture Show - Time Warp
One of the funnest songs around. How can you not want to dance to it?! "It's the pelvic thrust, they really drive you insane." 

The Nightmare Before Christmas - This is Halloween
I can't tell you how often this song gets in my head and I sing it throughout the house. The movie and soundtrack is so perfect and the fact that it can play from Halloween right until Christmas? Here for it.

The Eagles - Witchy Woman
"She held me spellbound in the night." Even better, this sounded amazing live so I relive it in my head every time I hear it. Same with Hotel California. Superb in every way.

Gerard Way - Baby You're a Haunted House
I could be wrong (it happens 😜), but I don't think this song really made it over here in Canada or the US so this might be a new one for some of you. Well, Gerard Way may not be new to you as he is the frontman of My Chemical Romance. This is such a fun song with a bit of a retro vibe.

I'll probably be listening to this playlist this weekend and all the way up to the 31st. Like I said, I'm still adding songs so it stays fresh. The song title, lyrics, whatever sounds haunting...they are all fair game to make it. And maybe you'll hear a new song or two!

InstaMonth for September 2020

I'm a little late on this post, but I took a little time off this week. Monday was Thanksgiving here and my father-in-law passed away on the same day and while my husband and he were not close, I felt like I needed to take a little time away to help my husband process the news and just be with him. I met him only once for a nice long dinner and chat, so I suppose I also needed to process the news myself.

I feel like this is probably the easiest way to get back into posting. Although I'm second-guessing this decision as I'm sitting here shaking my fist at the new Blogger editor. I put off switching over as long as I could and for good reason - I am not a fan! I've got my Halloween playlist playing, which I plan on sharing soon! Here are some highlights from my Instagram last month.

Blog of theMonth for October 2020 - The Beauty Informer

In September, Jill from Beauty Vixen was my featured blogger. You can read that post and see other past featured blogs under the "blog of the month" label! Being my blog of the month gets you a designated blog post, a sidebar button, and a mention on my Twitter account. The sidebar button stays up all month long. I don't believe in necessarily making bloggers pay for advertising and I'd much rather show you blogs that I really enjoy reading. And I hope you end up enjoying them too!

For October, I am featuring Sophie from The Beauty Informer. She covers a handful of topics, but often it is of the beauty and skincare variety with a little motherhood thrown in. Her latest post on Essie's Expressie polishes is worthy of a read, if you have found yourself wondering about the formula. I haven't tried them yet, but I've been wanting to! If you check out her blog, feel free to let her know I sent you! :)
