Fabric Rosettes

 Halloween hair bow from Elansi

Lately I've found myself gawking at photos of hair goodies on etsy... Now that it's October, I can finally start buying accessories for Halloween. Halloween is my favorite event of the entire year! I would probably wear this hair bow year round if I could. This post is mainly going to be photos galore, of etsy shops I've stumbled across and feel the need to share with everyone.

Silk flower from theloveletter, isn't this one gorgeous? I love the touch of the feather!

Purple and black headband from kurlicues

sugarsugarhigh is currently having a 20% off sale, so be sure to check out her shop as well!

And in case you're feeling crafty (like me!) check out this great tutorial I found to make your own rosettes! The idea is fairly simple enough, especially if you have lots of fabric in your stash.

Heartsy: Brazen Cosmetics

I recieved my Heartsy order with Brazen Cosmetics today! It's been a while since I've had an order, so I was very excited to recieve this one. Sandi is still working on getting the website up and running, but for now you can check out Brazen on either Etsy or Artfire. She has an exciting collection planned for Halloween, so watch the facebook page!!

Top row: strut, spectacle, don't stop, prude, scorching

Bottom row: prowl, pharoah, cali girl bronzer, alchemy passion pot

strut - hot pink/magenta with sparkle
 spectacle - bright canary yellow
don't stop - dark, shimmery taupe (my favorite of this bunch!)
prude - light lavender
scorching - hard to describe... I will use this as a highlight/accent shade, especially in my tearduct.

prowl - rustic sort of orange, perfect for fall
pharoah - combo between an olive green and gold
cali girl bronzer - light brown, shimmery bronze
alchemy passion pot  - wearable gold!

I love fall, and I'm excited to wear olives, oranges & golds. Don't stop! will go perfect with Prowl or Pharaoah, which have to be my favorites of this order. Alchemy I was originally on the fence on, because it seems so much darker in the listing. It is such a beautiful shade, and would be perfect over a nude lip.

Did you pick up anything during Brazen's Heartsy deal??
