7 Quick and Easy Halloween Costumes!

Hey cupcakes! Halloween is just around the corner, and I am so excited! I love to dress up for this holiday, so I thought I would write a quick post about some easy and quick costumes that you all can be for Halloween! :D Let's get started!

1. Damien from Mean Girls - This costume can be thrown together the night of! All you need are some sunglasses, a blue hoddie, and a hand made sign that says, "She doesn't even go here!". Ta-da! A hilarious costume perfect for Halloween!

2. Starbucks drink - All you need to do is wear a white dress, skirt/shirt combo, pants/shirt etc. and make a Starbucks drink cover as your belt! :) So cute!

4. Life and Lemons - All you need to do is buy a t-shirt and, using puffy or fabric paint, write "Life" on it... Then get some plastic lemons and pass them out (or real ones)! (LOL get it? When life gives you lemons...) :P

Review: NeoCell Biotin Bursts

Hey cupcakes! I was recently approached by the company NeoCell about one of their products: Biotin Bursts (Gourmet Biotin Soft Chews). I was really excited about being contacted by them, because I had read an article on Marie Claire's website about the product and was super curious about them! After doing some research, I found out that these Biotin Bursts were named the beauty supplement of the year by New Beauty magazine! I knew I just had to review them for you all! <3

First off, the Biotoin Bursts contain 10,000 MCG of Biotin, which is used to support the metabolism in the proteins of your hair and skin. My skin is normally pretty dry, so I had high hopes that it would make my skin healthier! I decided to order the Acai Berry Biotin Bursts (there are also Fruit Punch and Chocolate Mint ones), and they were shipped to my dorm in like five days (super fast shipping!).

Nutrition facts:

What the bag looks like:

I was super duper pumped to start trying these out! On September 21st I tried my very first one, and I have been taking one every morning since! :)
What the chew looks like:

These chews actually taste really good! They have the same "chewiness" as Starbursts (a little bit more grainy), and the flavor is yummy and not too strong. 

The results:
My skin has been less dry for sure! I haven't noticed any type of "energy" or "glow" in my skin in general, but it feels a lot more healthy instead of cracking all the time! I also noticed my hair getting healthier.... I tend to shed a lot, and now I don't notice my hair falling out as much! My hair also seems to not break as often, and I have noticed that I don't have as many split ends. I really love these Biotin Bursts!

I am so happy I tried out these chews, and I will most definitely be purchasing them again after my bag runs out! My skin and hair have never felt this happy, so I can't wait to see the long term effects! :) <3

*These Biotin Bursts were sent to me free of charge, but these are all my HONEST opinions :D *

Free Write #2: Most Irritating

Hey cupcakes! Last month I did my very first Free Write post on The Chic Cupcake (read about my first sexual experience HERE)! I really enjoyed doing that post, so I decided I would do another today! :D

If you are new to the "Free Write" concept, a free write is basically me writing a random post about a random topic (from this subject generator) in ten minutes without editing! Today's topic:

Write about someone who irritates you.

Alright well hurray this isn't about something as personal as my first sexual experience (thank god haha!)... Now as soon as I read this prompt, I knew exactly who I would talk about: one of my professors this semester. You probably thought I was going to talk about Trump or Hillary Clinton, but I don't want to talk about politics because, honestly, they both irritate me! :P Now I don't want to give out who this professor is or what class he teaches (for privacy sake), so let's refer to him as Mr. B. Now Mr. B teaches a class that I am pretty interested in. It consists of a 1 and a half hour lecture every week as well as another 1 and a half hour block for guest speakers. The topic is interesting, so I was excited to take this class.

Now the first time I saw Mr. B, my poor heart sank. Mr. B is intimidating; he is broadly build, has slicked back hair, is super arrogant, and barely ever smiles. He is one of those people who just acts like he is better than everyone (and I'm sure he's a nice guy and all)... For some reason, he irritates me more than anyone. The way he talks about himself and his experience at "law school" and his Linkedin connections and how we should be smarter than this and that, he makes me want to punch him in his face. Like I have literally thought about going to his office hours just to punch him.

My face about 90% of the class 
More so, he reminds me of the old boyfriend I had in highschool whom you might remember from this post a while back (My Emotional Abuse Story). I am intimidated, annoyed, and brought back to a bad time in my life whenever I am in his presence, and it is just not a good feeling at all! His overall personality irritates me, and then I get even more irritated because I can't enjoy the subject matter as much as I would like. :/ I will definitely be happy when this class is over!

Well, my timer is about to run out, so I hope you enjoyed my little blurb about my irritating professor! :P

Who do you find most irritating? Comment down below!

DIY: How to Make a Wand ft. Halloween

Hey cupcakes! Halloween is fast approaching, which means costume shopping and creating the perfect outfit for whatever activity you will be participating in on Halloween! :D I LOVE this holiday, so I wanted to do a DIY inspired by it... In this post, I will be showing you all how to make your very own wand that even Harry Potter himself would be jealous of! :P Let's get started!

What You Need
-Wooden dowel or chopstick

Make sure they are pretty thin!
-Hot glue gun
-Ribbon, pipe cleaner, other various decorations
-Paint (any color!)

1. Lay out some newspaper on a flat surface (to make clean up super easy!).
2. Figure out exactly how you want to decorate your wand; there are tons of ideas online!
3. Use the hot glue to glue on decorations OR use the hot glue itself to make a design on the wooden stick. I like to add a layer of hot glue to the base of the wand, and when it is almost dry, squeeze it with my hand to imprint my handprint to the handle! :D

4. Put a blob of hot glue on the tip of the wand, and when it is almost dry, mold it into a point.

Before paint!
5. Paint the wand! I like a darker brown so everything is one uniform color. :)

6. If you want to add more decorations, feel free!
7. Ta-da! Your very own wand! :O

Honestly I think these wands are super easy to make, and they end up looking so much better and unique than the ones you can buy at the store! :)
