1 ||| Halloween - My favorite holiday! I hosted a Halloween party for my girls at work, like I do every year (I even wore the same costume as two years ago - whoops! Sidenote: apparently kids don't read Waldo books anymore, about half of them had no idea who I was...disappointing.). Then, for real Halloween, Mike and I hung out on our porch, played cribbage, listened to Halloween Pandora, and passed out candy. Since we didn't dress up last year, we decided to give it a run this year and came up with the BEST last-minute costume. Can anyone guess it? Here's your clue. Any questions?
I've said before, I've been a Cubs fan my whole life. Mike is one now, too, and we've totally rocked Cubs gear all the way in San Fran! You know I'll be ordering some World Series Champions gear tonight!
3 ||| Influenster & VIB - It's been forever since I reviewed anything from Influenster, but I was pretty excited to receive the Real Techniques VoxBox with the "Your Picks" brush set, a makeup sponge, and this setting brush. While the sponge and setter have been around for a while, the brush set is pretty new. It's a combination of all the favorite brushes voted on by fans. As silly as it sounds, I love the weight of these brushes. They are a little on the heavier side, and I feel like that really helps me control where my makeup is going. While I have yet to try the setting brush (don't wear a lot of setting powder), I do like the sponge for both makeup blending and covering blemishes. It's versatile and my makeup stays on evenly. It'll be even more fun with some goodies from next weekend's VIB sale shopping (I have my eye on this and this). I'll live vicariously through all the VIB Rouge members this weekend!

5 ||| The Mac Off - My favorite event of the year is this weekend, and I am so excited to be partnering with them and to judge on the Critic's Choice panel. This year, not only has it been expanded to two year, but they're even going to have a test kitchen - I cannot wait to sample the cheese and beer pairings! You'll definitely find me snapchatting (megatronnn27) about this one all day tomorrow with their new snapchat filter! If you're in the Charleston area, you should definitely add this to your weekend plans! You can purchase tickets by clicking here.
Linking up for Oh hey, Friday, Five on Friday, High Five for Friday, and two doses of Friday Favorites
