imaginary shopping: halloween edition





































my favorite cartoon character; daria morgendorffer.



















alien super babe - or if you have a big bum - nicki minaj would work.












your favorite babysitter's club character, which would be CLAUDIA KISHI for me. she had the coolest clothes (purple pleather overall shorts!?) and an insane sweet tooth, which she tried to keep from her disapproving parents (hollowed out books with candy bars hidden in them!?). hero.

fall beauty pickies





via sephora


a couple new products i bought while visiting home that have officially earned a permanent spot in my
make-up bag.

chanel precision eyelash curler | yis yis, i know it's $35. but it's chanel. and it's the best i've ever had. it takes my eyelashes from super long and darting in every direction to super long and perfectly in a row, and keeps them there all day.
nars lipstick in 'fast ride' | my go-to fall lip. my mom actually bought this for herself, but thought it clashed with her medium olive skin tone. i scooped it up because it actually complements my pinky light olive skin tone well.
chanel rouge allure velvet luminous matte lipcolor in 'la rafinee' | the perfect pink. and i'm not talking a cutesy, bright pink. it's a gorgeous, sexy pink.
nails inc. nail polish in 'chelsea embankment' | super fine gold glitter with great coverage. two coats will have your nails completely covered in glitter. super impressed and really happy i found this polish.


would like to hear more fall beauty favorites! always looking for great products.

i've been itching for a leather jacket, but to me it doesn't feel ethically right to throw down money on a brand new piece of leather because: 1. i don't roll like that cash-wise and 2. i'm over here trying to reduce my carbon footprint and be ethically moral.

thaaat is why all signs point towards olga road (get it?). the good people at olga road take second-hand leather trench coats and upcycle the leather into amazing jackets. each jacket is one of a kind and has it's own unique elements.

i can't get over the PURPLE leather jackets on their site. so rad. i'm leaning towards a blue or black jacket for myself. the hard part is picking a style out, because they are all pretty much on point (a hooded leather jacket, are you kidding me?!)

check out olga road here.

"when you're a kid, 
they tell you it's all grow up. 
get a job. get married. 
get a house. have a kid and that's it. 
but the truth is, 
the world is so much stranger than that. 
it's so much darker. 
and so much madder. 
and so much better."

-elton pope in love & monsters


i saw this quote on my friend jess's tumblr, and i love it. i lurve it. it's brilliant.
