Happy Halloween!
Originally, the Musings of a Muse post for this month was going to be about fat shaming and skinny shaming. But I no longer feel like writing about that subject matter. Maybe I should have written this post at the start of the month when that topic was hot and heavy on my mind. It was a whole thing about mistaking "overweight" for "curvy" and mistaking "skinny" for "healthy". There is a big difference between being curvy and overweight--they are not the same thing. And the same can be said for considering yourself to be healthy because you're a size 2. Again, not the same at all.

But I digress, I don't really want to talk about size right now. Instead, let's make it a little lighter. What the hell should I be for Halloween this year? I know it might seem last minute--because it is--but I really have no idea this year. I like costumes that are fun, clever, creative and a little scary too. I'm not into "sexy" nurse ideas. So, let me know what you plan on going as this Halloween and give me some ideas too.

October is known for mainly two things: Halloween and the true beginning of autumn. But as the leaves start to fall, we're also reminded that October is known for one other great thing: Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

So with these last couple of days before we move into November, I've partnered with Pure Ice nail polishes to create a breast cancer awareness inspired pink lady mani. I decided to go a little ombre with an accent for a quick and easy look that any Pink Lady from Grease would love. Just some bold colors and fun with studs.
And to put icing on the cake, one of you now has a chance to win all eight of these Pure Ice nail polishes! All 8! This giveaway is hosted on both my blog and my Instagram. It's open to U.S. residents and ends Nov. 7.

  • Tickle Me Pink - on my pinky fingers; a very slight pink shade
  • Girly Girl - on my pointer fingers; a bit of a sparkly gloss finish
  • Pretty in Pink - on my middle fingers; one of my favorites; slight watermelon tone
  • Satin Ribbon - more of a demure, modest super light shade of pink
  • First Love - closer to a clear top coat than a deep pink
  • Spitfire - glitter specs on my ring finger and pinky fingers
  • Love - on my ring fingers; more of a bubblegum, classic pink hue
  • Crazy Love - on my thumbs; a very solid color; my favorite

Yet another monochrome look on the Muse. Over the weekend I decided to go shopping at the mall as part of the #StyledByLumia challenge. I knew there were a few pieces I wanted to add to my fall wardrobe, so I decided to use Lumia's Cortana and OneNote to put together a mini shopping list. I used Cortana and searched for images of the 5 items I was in need of:

  • Stylish Joggers - as seen in this post (and found a second pair as well)
  • Sweaters/Cardigans - picked up one
  • Chic Mules - as seen in this post (can you believe I got these for $26 at Payless?)
  • Monochrome - stayed in the black and white combo
  • Casual Blouses - picked up three (one seen in this post)
I stored this list in Lumia's OneNote, which is a fun way to keep a shopping list because I was able to put the images of the pieces I wanted in OneNote as well. It actually made mall shopping sort of fun for me, because as you might remember, I prefer to shop online. But I felt quite accomplished to check things off my OneNote list when I found them at stores in the mall. And yes, I got a Cinnabon this time.
