  17. Happy Halloween! I freaking love that you do mug of the month. For some reason I've missed that previously. Probably because I can't watch videos at work. I subscribed though so I can watch on my phone on the train for chit chat.

  18. The most adorable Charlie! :) Happy Halloween! :) Love the video, you are too cute! I also love pumpkin spice.

  19. the dog looks so cute :D about the giveaway...Is it open for India too?

  20. i need that mug!!!!!! also, your dog is cute!

  21. Happy Halloween, Elle! Charlie is just too cute for words.

  22. Aw I didn't know the charlie story :( So sad... don't know how people can be so cruel to animals. Loved his costume!

    I like the NARS the foundation because it's one of the ones with the porcelain option (light skin problems). I'm combo skin and didn't find the drying issue you had. Perhaps a primer would help?

    lol and I feel ya about the "luxury" complaints. Anytime I feature anything over $30 people gasp. Glad you had a great October (except for being on your bday)!

  23. Happy Halloween to you and that cutie pup, Charlie!

  24. I'll check out the video later for sure! Hope you're having a wonderful Friday and best wishes for the weekend ahead! Woohoo!

  25. Happy Halloween! Charlie is such a cute little shark. I haven't tried the NARS Sheer Glow, but your description of it sounds perfect for me. Thanks!

  26. ohemgee that costume is adorable!! i want that for my kitties. so cute! have a great weekend lovely.

  27. Happy Halloween!

    I love your Reese's Cup.

  28. Charlie is so cute. Thanks for giving me a shout out in your video. I'm so happy I was able to make your birthday a little more special. Happy Halloween and have a great weekend.

  29. You both look so cute and festive! Love that mug! I am not a coffee drinker either, but I love my tea in a fun mug! Reese's is one of my favs so yours would be right up my alley!

  30. Haha, love the way you 'present' your drink ;-) Sound yum. My favorite candy is probably also anything Kinder! :-) Oh and happy belated birthday! And yes, the NARS Sheer Glow is also a leave it for me, didn't work.

  31. Charlie is too cute in his costume even if it didn't last long! At least you got a photo first :(

  33. OMG Charlie looks so adorable in his costume!! Hope you had a wonderful halloween Elle :)
    Keep in touch

  34. Glad you had a great October! That was nice of your friends to give you those goodies for your birthday. Sorry you were sick on it, but I'm glad you're feeling better! Charlie is adorable!

  35. I love Ipsy and Birchbox, but I don't like the "waiting list" on Ipsy that you can skip if you post onto your social media. I think it is a headache to go through that waiting list if you refuse to skip. Birchbox doesn't seem to have a waiting list.

  36. Oh my gosh, so many amazing events and congratulations on the nomination!! Charlie is just the cutest and hope you have just as amazing of a November!!
