October Ipsy

Another REALLY good month for Ipsy! We are going on 3 months in a row. I am impressed!

What was in my bag:

Skone Tattooed Waterproof Eyeliner- ($15) This stuff is REALLY good!! I usually wear the Tattoo Eyeliner from Kat Von D its my most favorite ever. So comparing it to that this is really good.

Indie Lee Brightening  Cleanser- (Fullsize $32) This was the only thing that I wasn't super excited about, but I do look forward to trying it out. I always hesitate to try new things on my face, but I will give this a try.

Ayres Body Butter- (Fullsize $28) This smells a little herbal, but I used it on my hands before I went to bed and it was pretty good.

Nicole by OPI Nail Polish-($6) Gold Nail Polish need I say more. Its perfect and its OPI so its good stuff. 

Noyah Lip Stick- (Fullsize $18) This is lipstick shade is perfect for the "90's" lip that is trending right now. I love it. This is an all natural company!

Everything was a good sized sample or a full sized product.  The bag this month is also really good quality and so cute! Which is always awesome. Total for everything if you were to go out and buy them is $99. WOW so for $10 its not to bad. The awesome eyeliner alone pays for the whole bag. 

If you do not know what Ipsy is its a monthly subscription service for $10. They send you 4-5 deluxe samples based on a questionnaire that you fill out. If your interested you can sign up here.

Cream Cheese Spice Cake Cups

I AM NOT a food blogger nor do I ever want to be. I do not like to cook or bake. My poor family, but sometimes I like to make a QUICK treat. I make these every fall. I got this recipe years ago from a Pampered Chef Holiday Cook book. I don't even know where the book is anymore, but I have this memorized so it must mean its a good one :)

 For the cake cups:

1 Box of Yellow Cake mix
2 eggs
1 1/2 tsp of Ground Allspice
4 TBLS of Oil
A shredded carrot
nut (optional)

Mix all together. This batter will be VERY thick, so don't be worried.

Bake for 11-13 minutes @ 350 degrees

 For the Cream Cheese Filling:

3/4 cup of Powdered Sugar
8 oz of Cream Cheese
3/4 cup of Cool Whip

Mix all together and put in a ziplock baggie so you can squeeze the frosting into the cake cups.

They are super easy and taste yummy. Win Win in my book!

DIY Pumpkin Decoration

CARVING pumpkins??? Who's got time for that??? NOT US. We do not enjoy it one bit. However, we still wanted to have some cute pumpkins to display on our front steps/porch.

We busted out our paints, modge lodge, glitter, and vinyl and went to town. They were all super easy to do and turned out so cute. 

This pumpkin we modge podged some book pages to this fake pumpkin and added some polkadots with some glitter and it was seriously the cutest thing EVER!!!

This is how they look outside on the step.

I made the sign last year! Which I still love.

Hope we gave you some inspiration to tackle the daunting task of pumpkins. No Carving Just painting. Simple... Simple.. and the pumpkins will last a lot longer to.
