Halloween Looks
Ex Girlfriend - No Doubt
I have been a fan of No Doubt for ages now, since middle school, and I have always admired the makeup she wore in their "Ex Girlfriend" video. I went all out and even sprayed my hair Pink!

I have been accused up and down and all around about having some plastic surgery done. I will set the record straight...I have had nothing altered or added. I couldn't afforded it even if I wanted it ahaha!

Day of the Dead / Sugar Skull
I have been a fan of this traditional Mexican Art since I was younger. It was very time consuming and something I wouldn't do to myself again if I can help it. It did make for a cool picture.

Little Red Riding Hood.
I was so happy to hear that Kim Kardashian was this same character for Halloween this year. She had all of her business hanging out...so this is the mommy version lol. I did not film a tutorial for this look.

Jude loved chasing me around the backyard in this costume. Look at that face! Hes starting to look more like his daddy each day.
This look I did a year ago and it came out amazing, the quality was not as clear as it would be today due to the type of camera I had. I decided to redo it, but I was too busy to post the video. Maybe next year? lol. This wig was ridiculous!
Zombie / Dead Girl
One of my favorites. I even bought some black out contacts to add a creepy effect. I think they were a waste of money, everyone who saw it didn't even notice!

Lady Gaga
I was only a fan of her music, but I have grown to love her more and more as I watch interviews. Shes so sweet and different. I used my barbie wig and made a little hair bow inspired by *annoying voice* Gaga. I used my moms head to work on the wig haha. I don't remember the company that sent me these glasses. Oops!
Jude didn't get it haha.
My official costume was this Air Force / Top Gun character. It was a size small and I couldnt zip it up all the way...amen for my long hair. Plus Halloween is that one day women are free to dress sexy...don't hate lol. I love the boots that I am wearing...they are from MakemeChic
I didn't have anyone to take pictures of my outfit so I had to get down to fit in the shot lol.
After we hit up the Universal Hilton for a quick hello...we hit up THE STANDARD roof top.
Carly went as a sexy school teacher.
I had a huge glass of...COKE haha. I was in need of some soda. I have been trying to watch my sugar intake, I was out so I treated myself to some of my favorite soda.
Trick or Treat, Smell Dunka's Feet!
Halloween was finally here. I was so excited to take my little monkey, that's what his costume was, trick or treating for the first time. Before the whole gang set out, Grandpa and Grandma came by to wish Jude a Happy Halloween!
Jude looks so much like Kris' younger brother Zack in this picture.
Grandpa helped me get Jude dressed.
His face was a little dirty from feeding him dinner too.
From right to left: Mikey, Denise, Tommy Lee, and Emily
Center: Dunka
All we were missing for the cousin bunch was Joey, my brother's older son, and Noah who is Kris' only nephew.
Time to get mommy...I mean...Judy some candies! I don't know what made me take this huge leather trash bag looking bag with me. I didn't need it. My cell phone and camera were inside the pumpkin.
Jude couldn't wait to get home to have a taste of his candy. He loves lollipops!
Jude is still working on mastering his walking so I took him around the neighborhood in his little push car. It worked out perfect!
One of my favorite parts of Halloween is seeing all the pumpkin carvings.
There is my sister and her son Mikey. Jude was being silly for the camera.
Cleopatra aka Denise helped me push Jude while I played photographer...boarder line paparazzi.
For those of you who asked me on Facebook, my sweater is from...of course FOREVER21.
Jude and his tio (uncle) Ray. My brother likes taking pictures like the rest of our family and was trying to snap a quick photo with Dunk.
These kids came up on buckets of candy! Here is Tommy Lee sharing like a good cousin. While I took this picture I was like "NOOO NOT THAT KIND" he is still learning to chew and I don't want my honey to choke!
We had a great time as one big group. I love my family. The only person that was missing was Kris. He was with us in spirit.
How was your Halloween? How did you spend it?

La Tolteca
Carly and I planned a lunch date at one of the popular local Mexican restaurants in Azusa, Ca. La Tolteca has been a favorite place to dine in since I was in High School!
On our way to pick up our close friend, Brigitte, Dunka knocked out. He's such a sound sleeper! Hes had the food here before, so I was sure to wake up so he could have a good lunch.
Yes...hes not wearing shoes. He hates shoes! I had his vans in my bag because that little monkey learned how to remove them while being buckled in his car seat, smart little guy.
Say Hola to Brigitte. I'm not sure if she has graced the pages of this blog yet, but here she is! Shes expecting a baby boy early next year!
I don't think I have ever ordered anything but a #9 Chicken Enchilada plate haha.

The chips are soooo good that for every sports event, especially UFC/MMA, my family orders a bucket of salsa and a box of chips from this place...and I know of a dozen more ppl who do it too.
Jude is such a character! He stole my hat. I don't know what has gotten into him lately, but when he was a little younger he hated hats!
I love my good eater I think its funny that we all order the same thing every time we visit. Carly is tearing up some taquitos with extra thick guacamole.
Doesn't it seem like I am always eating? Haha! And I have been getting tons of comments saying I'm too skinny now, cant please'em all.
A little outfit post never hurt anyone.
I have been trying new things, I am currently in love with bright colors and combat boots.
I wish I took a better picture of these bad boys but I guess I wasn't thinking and its too late now. I'm barefoot typing this mother out lol.
I got my boots at ROSS Dress for Less Store in Azusa, Ca yesterday and as soon as these big brown eyes saw them...I knew they had to be mine! I tried to look them up online in case anyone wanted a pair but I couldn't find them. They are by Sam & Libby
*drawing a heart in the air*
My bright sweater is by FOREVER21. I found it tossed with random items on the floor...it was a diamond in the rough lol. That bright blue stood out like no other. I tried looking for it on their website but this is all I could find. CLICK Haha! Jude wanted to "help".
My glasses - by NYS COLLECTION, I think that was the brand. They were sold at a little hut in the middle of the mall for $10. Just look for thick black frames with clear lenses.
Plain white tank - purchased at Target
Skinny Stretch Jeans - I don't remember where I bought them, I'm horrible...I know.
On my lips I had "Chaos" lipstick by NYX. This red is ridiculous. I love it. I am whitening my teeth...in the process...so I am feeling more confident about smiling with bright lip colors.

For a more natural look...which is always my 'go to' lip color "Fairest Nude" by Loreal Paris found at drugstores.
My monkey is ready for bed -_-
Its been a long week, and I needed some retail therapy...so a haul is coming soon!
What is your favorite pair of shoes right now? Where can we get them? How do you feel about the red lipstick?

Happy Birthday Tommy!

New Cut
I wanted to really just cut my hair off but I think I should wait for summer, I will miss my hair too much if I got rid of it. I have been getting so many messages telling me to go back to my old "look" from when I lived in Virgina.

I took my razor, which I bought at Sally's Beauty Supply for under $10, and took a couple of sweeps down from my eyebrow towards my nose and TADA! Done. I'm sure there are tons of videos on how to get side swept bangs on YouTube so check it out there.
Today is my nephew Tommy Lee's 4th birthday. Every time there is a birthday we all get together and have a small dinner and cake. I like it that way, keeps the family closer together.
The kids were so cute together. You should all know that Jude is mine, Tommy is red and he is my brother's youngest son, and the other three are my twin sister's children Mikey Emily and Denise.
Jude was in need of a nap so he quickly left the couch.
Time to make a wish and blow out the candles!
My brother, his beautiful wife Lizzie and the birthday boy.
Lizzie made the BEST red velvet cake ever!! I don't really like cake, but there is nothing better than a homemade cake. I don't know what kind of frosting there was on that cake but it was soooo good.
I wonder what he wished for? Hes got everything a little boy could need. He has the best parents around.
Before we got to the cake (I am far to tired to rearrange these pictures lol) we had a hearty pasta and garlic bread. It was so yummy it was almost a sin.
Jude is on a pasta kick so he took the whole plate down to china town.
Once more, Happy Birthday Tommy!
What I am wearing in this post: Vintage Tee (Kris left behind and I cut up)
At the party: Racerback Tee by FOREVER21, Button-up Stripped Sweater by Target
Jude's outfit by Target
I always forget to mention my clothing and things like that, so I will make sure that I list them in future posts. I need to get on my fashion and cosmetic game on here. I have been so wrapped up in my family...I need all the love and support during this time.
