Halloween Fun: Easy Pikachu Makeup

Pikachu Makeup

Hi guys! As I’ve probably mentioned a hundred times, Halloween is my favourite holiday. Nothing beats showing my inner geekiness and dressing up as a character that I love. A few years ago my husband and I dressed up as Ash and Pikachu from Pokemon. So, given the popularity of Pokemon Go this past summer, and the upcoming release of Pokemon Sun and Moon, I thought I’d take the costume out for a spin again and show you an easy way to do Pikachu makeup.

Now, in these pictures, I am not wearing my actual costume. I went to pull it out and it had stains on it, ugh! So, I’ll share some pictures from when I originally wore it at the end of this post.

The Adult Tag

Adult Tag

Hi guys! I saw the Adult Tag over on Helpless While Drying quite some time ago and instantly knew I had to do this tag at some point. I’ve had the link to her post sitting in my drafts for awhile so tonight I thought it was finally time to take a crack at these questions! Rachael of Helpless While Drying was also recently on the My Lip Addiction Beauty Podcast! So, if you would like to check out her episode (and I do recommend it!) you can find all the links here!

1 – How old are you and where do you live?

I am 26 (but very close to 27) and I live in Thunder Bay, Ontario!

2 – Where did you expect to be by this age?

I think I’m pretty much where I hoped I would be… married, house, car, surrounded by pets and working a full-time day job! Career-wise I guess I’m not where I thought I would be but, life happens and you roll with it. I’m in a field I never really thought about at all when I was younger so it’s not really a bad thing.

3 – Are you on track to where you want to be now?

I think so! I feel like goals change and adapt over time so it is so hard to say “I’m on track”. But, I’m happy and I don’t feel like I am missing anything in my life.

4 – What piece of advice do you wish people told you when you were young?

Hmm… that’s a good question! I can’t think of any advice that I wish I got earlier…

5 – What advice would you give to younger people now?

Do what makes you happy and don’t live your life based on what other people want or expect.

6 – Do you still suffer from FOMO?

Not really. I had to look up what FOMO means so I feel super old. Anyways, I’m pretty happy being a hermit to be honest, haha… Not that I don’t enjoy seeing my friends though. I definitely try to make an effort to go out and see them, but I don’t feel like I need to be out every weekend. I’m comfortable staying in if that’s what I feel like doing!

7 – What is your opinion on living at home vs moving out in your 20’s?

I don’t really have an opinion on it, I feel like people should do what is right for them. If you’re financially able to move out in your 20’s, go for it! If moving out will financially cripple you, don’t. I moved out when I was 19 and it thankfully worked out pretty great!

8 – If you could change something in your adult life right now then what would it be?

Hmm… I like my job, but it feels like a job so I count down to weekends and holidays. I would love to be doing something that is more centred around my hobbies/interests that doesn’t feel as much work. But, I’m comfortable where I am so I’m not really itching to leave either.

9 – Have you had any sudden realisations about life/relationships/friendships since hitting your 20s?

The older I get the more I value my close friendships. You start to realize that life isn’t about having the most friends, it’s about having a handful of super amazing close friends. People drift away, that’s just life. You really do learn who your real friends are though!

10 – Do you feel like an adult?

Yes and no. When I’m working my 9 to 5 job, taking care of my pets and paying bills, I sure do feel like an adult! However, when I’m driving around the city with my husband playing Pokemon Go with my husband as we track where the good Pokemon are, I question how much of an adult I really am… haha! But I wouldn’t change a thing.

I’m not going to tag anyone specific to participate in this fun tag, but if you do it, please leave me your links because I would love to read your answers!!

xoxo,

Robyn

Fall Favourites Tag

P1010225

Hi guys! Jaclyn Hill recently did a fall favourites tag video and it got me inspired to bring it over to my blog. You can watch Jaclyn’s video here. Although I am definitely a summer girl, my second favourite season is fall. I love a nice sunny crisp day, wearing boots with jeans and a nice fall scented candle.

Favorite Candle

P1010211

I recently purchased and am loving “Autumn” from Bath & Body Works. It smells red apples, cedar wood and green balsam. It smells like the most delicious apple cider!

Favorite Lip Color

L to R: Venom and Shame

L to R: Venom and Shame

I’ve been loving Urban Decay’s Revolutionary Lipstick on Venom and Shame so far for fall. They are both deep, vampy, but wearable colours for fall.

Favorite Drink

While I recently tried and enjoyed the updated Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte, my favourite fall drink is the Starbucks Salted Caramel Mocha. However, I don’t get them every time I go to Starbucks in the fall, I try to just treat myself to them occasionally.

Favorite Blush 

I don’t really have a fall specific blush that I love just for fall. I find that NARS Orgasm goes really well with the warm looks I have been wearing, but I wear it all year round. It is one of my Holy Grail Products.

Favorite Clothing Item

BOOTS. Enough said, haha. I pretty much only wear boots all fall and all winter until I can break out my fun spring/summer shoes.

Favorite Fall Movie

Call me crazy but I don’t think I have a favourite movie for fall! A few of my favourite movies for any time of the year though, are Clueless, White Oleander and the whole Harry Potter Series.

Favorite Fall TV Show

The two shows that I normally wait all summer for their return would be Grey’s Anatomy and Scandal. Shonda Rhimes is a genius. I’m still undecided on how Grey’s will be this season though… if you watch it, you know what I mean. I also love Once Upon a Time but I have to admit, I’m VERY behind on last season and am still catching up.

Favorite Thanksgiving Food

My favourite Thanksgiving food is definitely stuffing. No contest. Homemade stuffing and gravy are such a great combination.

Favorite Halloween Costume

2013-10-25 21.48.32-1

My favourite Halloween costume was when my husband and I dressed up as Pikachu and Ash Ketchum from Pokemon. We are both huge Pokemon geeks and it was fun to incorporate that into halloween.

I tag all of my fellow bloggers who read my blog to do this tag! Please leave me a link to the post in the comments so I can go check it out! If you are a reader and you do not have a blog, please feel free to include your fall favourites in the comments below! I would love to read them!

xoxo,

Robyn
