Nudy Patooty – Lace Cap Sleeve
Modcloth – Red Midi Skirt
Minnie Mouse Makeup

A crowd favourite, Minnie Mouse is family appropriate and super easy to whip up. Grab your Lace Cap Sleeve Nudy and a red skirt (get creative with what you have here!) 

Next you will need a headband – something in black will work best. Grab some construction paper or white paper and a sharpie, cut 2 ears with a square on the bottom allowing you to glue them to the headband. Fold the square over the headband and either tape or glue in place.

The makeup for this costume is simple, use black eyeliner and draw a little heart on your nose and for the lip you want that red lipstick you never get to wear! 

Voila, Minnie Mouse is ready for Halloween!

Michael Kors – Trench Coat 
Nudy Patooty – Signature Seamless
Nordstrom – Converse Chuck Taylor

This costume is one for the kid-free party! We are throwing it back to the classic neighbourhood flasher in the trench coat.

Another excuse to wear your beloved Trench, is an opportunity we will take! Throw on your Signature Seamless in Nude under the trench coat and button it up from the bottom to your waist, securing the belt in place.

Make sure your bottom is short enough not to show below the hem of the jacket (after all you are a flasher!) 

A casual sneaker is the ideal comfy shoe for this look, or dress it up and pair it with a heeled boot or high heel. 

When walking around make sure you occasionally “flash” people by pulling open your jacket! The nude undershirt will have people second glancing!

Nudy Patooty – Reversible Tank Top
Lululemon – Wunder Under Pant
Amazon – Leg Warmers and Sweatband

The Aerobics Teacher will have you on the dance floor all night long! Pull your leggings from your workout bag and put on your Reversible Tank Top as the base of the costume.

Your accessories will be what takes this costume next level. Think bright, colourful, obnoxious and over the top! These neon leg warmers from Amazon have next day delivery and will keep you extra warm while out for the night. Find a scrunchie or a sweatband for your head to keep you cool as you bust a move on the dance floor. For your feet, grab your gym shoes and call it a night!

Happy Halloween!

What I’m reading: NYFW 2016 moves all eyes to the consumer

It is that time of year again – some of us love it and some of us hate it, but secretly we all cannot wait for the next season to come so we can have a go at some of the trends that hit runways.

With NYFW just beginning, designers are going all out with the show productions this year. Shifting the focus from the runway extravagance to ensuring their collections are seen from by everyone. Designers are focusing on the buy now aspect of the shows, allowing consumers and influencers to immediately purchase the styles from the Spring 2017 runway, instead of leaving them waiting for months on end. This idea has been considered before by brands like Banana Republic and J. Crew, however, this year more designers are having a go at buy now allowing people from all over to have a piece of NYFW, without having to trek to NYC. 

Life Hack: De-Puff Tired Eyes Instantly

Some weeks are tougher than others, and nothing screams “I am running on caffeine today” quite like puffy eyes. Unfortunately, this is also not so easy to cover up with makeup as we would hope. So to help de-puff the eyes here is 5 at-home solutions to get you looking well-rested and flawless in no time!

  1. Give yourself a massage: Gently press and massage around your eyes for a few minutes. This helps drain the liquid buildup that is causing the puffiness, while also feeling great in the am. 
  2. Freeze a spoon: If this is a frequent worry of yours, toss a few spoons in the freezer to keep them cool and handy when you need them. Pull them out the freezer and place them curve side down on your eyelids as you get a few more minutes of rest. 
  3. Brew some tea (bags): Grab some caffeinated green tea bags and brew them, toss them in the fridge to cool down (for about 20 minutes) then place them on your eyelids for 10 minutes – as you catch a few more zzz’s.
  4. Crack some eggs: Fancy eggs for breakfast? Take a bit of the egg whites and spread it under your eye (careful to avoid the lashline). Once it is dry, gently wipe it off.
  5. Grab the ice: Dunk your face in ice cold water, and keep it in there as long as you can. Repeat for a few times, until you are feeling awake and ready to take on the day!

If you still can’t seem to look like Katy Perry’s Wide Awake, then grab a Venti coffee before heading to the office and roll with the “I am on limited sleep” look. 

People doing good: When ‘Donuts with Dad’ takes a turn

 

Being a single parent is a challenge in itself, and sometimes when events come up specifically focusing on the relationship between your child and the other parent – you can’t help but want to do something so they aren’t missing out. That is exactly what Yevette did when her son’s school hosted a ‘Donuts with Dad’ day.

Yevette Vasquez becomes “dad” for a day

Instead of letting her son sit the event out, and miss out on some delicious donuts, she did what any mom would have done in the situation and pulled out her best “dad” look to sit down with the others. Bringing a smile to her son’s face and the other parents, Yevette was happy to see her son having a great time. 

Have a great weekend! Nudy Patooty xx
