Cupcakes and Makeup

Yay for cupcakes!  And not just any cupcakes, but pumpkin cupcakes!  I made them myself and decorated them with store-bought cream cheese frosting.  You could make your own, but I really wasn’t in the mood.

Oh no!  Don’t eat me!


This weekend, I also got a flu shot (everyone go get one!).  While waiting my turn at CVS, I stocked up on makeup.  As well as this lovely grey nail polish.

I promise it looks better in real life than in this blurry photo!

It’s by Maybelline and it’s part of their limited edition fashion week collection.  So if you like it, go buy it now!

I also bought the new Maybelline Cooling Effects eyeliner in white.  I was skeptical at first (what if the color didn’t show up?) but it brightens up my eyes and has a nice sparkle.

And new mascara.  I don’t have very many eyelashes, so I was hoping this would make them look bigger and longer.  I like the curved brush, but the mascara itself doesn’t make my lashes look much bigger.

**I know all these products are from Maybelline.  The company didn’t send them to me or give me them for free in exchange for a review.  I bought them at CVS.  Just so you know.**

    I love themed treats. Those are cute. 🙂

    And I just got my flu shot today. I don’t normally get one, but knew I needed one this year since I am pregnant.

    Haha, super cute cupcakes! Looks like most of them are very distressed at the idea of being eaten though: Noooooooooooo! 😀

    How are you feeling after the ‘flu shot? I got one done a couple of weeks ago and felt really bad a couple of days afterward. They warned me I would, but I usually don’t get reactions to shots… I’m interested to hear how other people coped with it.

    And yay for make-up shopping sprees, lovely!


    p.s. It’s only polite to introduce myself.. I’m Fi! Hi! And I’m a new reader of yours 🙂

      I felt really, really tired for a few days after the shot, and I’ve never really reacted to one before. Like, I couldn’t get out of bed no matter how early I went to sleep, and I was fatigued allll day. Really annoying! And thanks for reading, Fi! I’ll be checkin out your blog too 😀

    What is it that makes cupcakes so extra fun?
