My Life In October 2017

Happy Halloween!


I wanted to do a full post for Halloween, but since I've been a little under the weather with allergy and sinus issues I didn't get to do much. Nonetheless it's the end of the month and it's time for a monthly lifestyle post. I still can't believe that this month marks a year since I've been doing these types of posts!

  2. Pilar, You are beautiful and funny. Being a bee and being afraid of them. never swat at them, that makes them upset. :):) Looks like you di healthy shopping at the store. When you make your own meals , your food dollars certainly go farther. You seem like a good cook, as well as a makeup artist.
    With all the shake ups in the world this week over harassment, things are changing. Good that some have finally spoken up about abuses.
    Blessings to you, xoxo, Susie

    1. Thanks Susie! Lol I'm so terrified of bees! I never swat bees, if anything I try to stay away from them! The last thing I want to is make them upset! I try to pick up healthy foods when I go shopping. I'm probably going to pick up some fruit this week. I try to cook on a regular basis and homecooking is usually healthier! You are too kind! I love to cook and create makeup looks.

      You're right, that's one of the reasons I decided to write about different types of domestic violence. Blessings to you as well!

  5. Those homemade meals sure do look good, Pilar, especially that chicken pot pie. Oh, the bumble bee costume is so cute, and what a fun headband you made, so clever. The eye make-up is pretty for your costume also. Happy Halloween, Pilar!
