Last month or the month before I had the awesome opportunity to join my fellow POPSUGAR Select Beauties in a fun campaign.  As a thank you for completing the campaign we received a really cool and really large Signature Boat Bag / Tote with the POPSUGAR logo on it.  A fellow friend and blogger of mine, Krystal (BeautybyKrystal) had posted on her Instagram that it was a large bag and I still had no idea how big it was. lol  When I received it I was super excited.  The bag is sturdy and well made.  I have been using it to transport my review items to my photography location so that I don’t have to go back and forth transporting products.  It literally holds everything.  I’m excited to have it and love it.  I know this is a random post but I figured I would share. 😉  Have a wonderful weekend! ~ Honey

November was an awesome month filled with all kinds of fun and the Thanksgiving Holiday.  I absolutely love November because the Winter Holidays are my favorite and Thanksgiving is the beginning of it all.

This month I tried some new products and also went back to using some of my normals.  Check out my video below for all the details on what made my favorites.

Halloween comes but once a year and this year the twins are just a little older to truly understand what is going on.  Last year, the twins were Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and while they enjoyed themselves, they were still learning how to say “Trick or Treat” and getting the concept down.  This year they had an absolute blast.  We took the boys to my Sister In Law’s neighborhood where tons of people come from all over the Island since it is always a nice neighborhood filled with Candy giving houses.  It was lots of fun and even more so that my husband had the night off and could join us.

My eldest was not in the “dress up mood”.  I think he is at that stage where he is now “too cool” to wear a costume.  He did want me to do some zombie makeup on him and since I only had a couple of minutes, I through together what I could so we could be out the door quickly.  He really liked how it came out and I was happy that he enjoyed it.  I thought he looked super cool and so did other people we came across through the course of the night.

The twins went through my eldest’s past Halloween costumes and found some they really liked.  Luke loved the Dragon costume, but it never came with a mask – so he was just going to wear it like that.  However, since Isaiah would be using a costume that would have a mask (one that we lost and couldn’t find), Luke wanted one too.  Since I did the face paint for Isaiah, I decided I would do one on Luke too.  This was my interpretation of a dragon face.  I wish I took a better pic of what it looked like without his costume covering it – but you can see the video of it here.  I took a print screen capture of part of the video so you could see some of the detail.

Luke really loved how it came out and honestly, I thought it was super cool as well.

As I mentioned above, Isaiah found one of Kaeo’s Spiderman costumes but we couldn’t find the mask for it anywhere.  So I promised Isaiah I would paint his spiderman face on.  He was so excited and absolutely loved how it came out.  Here is the Instagram video for that one, here.  I actually filmed a little before I completed the mask and this video obviously was taken before he decided to play and smear it (the picture above was after playing, so I had to redo it a bit. lol)

We had a lot of fun that night and I’m always looking forward to hanging out with my boys and husband.  These times are rare and it’s important to make each and every moment count.  I hope you all had a wonderful Halloween.  The boys got a lot of candy and was sad to bid the day adieu but at the same time, they also know that “Ho! Ho! Ho!” which is what they call Christmas, is going to be here soon.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone and an awesome upcoming week!

Anytime my Husband, Sons and I have some family togetherness is always a plus and last weekend it was no exception.  Since my husband had the day off, we spend our Saturday traveling to the Kula Country Farms to choose out the perfect pumpkin to carve.   It was a warm day but nonetheless we all had so much fun going through the pumpkin patch and looking at all of the displays.
Choosing the perfect pumpkin is never easy, but we managed to find a pretty awesome one.  We always try to find one that is slightly flat on one side and round on the other side.  Those tend to be a bit easier to carve.  It is also important to make sure and get one where the stem is still well intact so it will be perfect when putting the lid back on top – it’s the pretty factor. lol
The boys enjoyed their time at the Pumpkin Patch.  And we had fun looking at all the little crafty attractions that they have set up around the farm.
Going to the Pumpkin Patch has turned into a yearly family tradition with us.  If my husband can’t make it, I’ll take the boys – but the last few years my husband’s schedule has allowed us to attend.  Hopefully today or tomorrow we will be able to carve our pumpkin.  I lost our pumpkin carving tools, so I’m on the hunt for them. 🙂  I hope you are all having time with your Family this Holiday Season!
From our house to yours… Happy Pumpkin carving! <3 ~Honey
