Ok everyone, here’s Part 2 of my amazing Halloween Decor Hunting for 2021. I got some great pieces this year which most of them will stay up in my house honestly, and some beautiful high quality items that I’m so happy to add to my collection. And the best part, most of the high quality items weren’t super expensive.
Hello everyone. I’m so excited to show off some of my new gorgeous pieces I picked up this year so far for Halloween. I started decor hunting at the end of July and couldn’t believe how many places were already starting to put spooky stuff out. My house is looking even more spooky now, and I’m definitely going all out this year, especially since it’s my son’s first Halloween. One of the first items I bought this year was a soft pumpkin for my son’s room as his very first pumpkin ever which he loves.
My house is already witchy and magical all year round but as I started decorating my house, I figured out a few Fall/Samhain themes to decorate my space this year which helped me decide which goodies I wanted to get this year to add to my decoration collection. They are, ” Cottage Autumn Harvest,” “Magical Witch Apothecary Lair,” and “Vintage Halloween Town.” My house already has these themes all year round but I’m glad I got to expand on these looks.
Everything in these photos I bought at the shops including, Michael’s, Big Lots, Homegoods, Tuesday Morning, Marshalls, and At Home.
The only items I bought online were my gorgeous Apothecary dishes from Royal Wessex, which of course I’ll use all year round, my three Autumn Gnomes, my Autumn Harvest placemats for my table, and my pumpkin harvest lantern which I got from Pier 1.
I’ll definitely be posting more goodies I buy this year but I thought this was a good starting off point to show. I’ll also be posting all my displays and decorations when I’m done adorning my house. I’m so happy it’s finally my favorite time of the year.
Hi everyone, long time no chat. It’s been an absolutely crazy but enjoyable nine months. My husband and I had a beautiful baby boy who is now at week and two days. He’s the most precious thing I’ve ever seen. I know many new parents say that but in this case, it’s true. HaHa. I wanted him for so long and I must confess that I was feeling hopeless at times. Luckily I had an absolute amazing team of doctors and nurses who helped me out through my pregnancy and the team was rated NUMBER 1 in Orange County and Southern California.
I couldn’t have done it without this fabulous team of doctors and my MOST AMAZING AND SUPPORTIVE HUSBAND NIMA SORAT! He stood by my side during every moment.
I don’t want to post any pictures of my son here because I posted two on my Instagram and on my Facebook when I announced his birth, so feel free to check out my cutie there. I just didn’t want to bombard my page here with photos.

I got pregnant right before COVID so unfortunately Nima couldn’t go to most of my OBGYN appointments but he got to attend the early ones plus the first ANATOMY ULTRASOUND which was the most amazing thing. And of course he was in the delivery room and hospital with me which was the most important thing. Nima has been a saint and I’m so grateful for him and our new beautiful family. And I’m excited it’s the holiday season coming up.
I DEFINITELY KNOW WHAT I’M GRATEFUL FOR! MY BABY HAS BEEN THE ONLY GREAT THING ABOUT 2020!

I decided to amp up my Snow White tutorial. Like in part one of my Snow White tutorial, since I’m a witch, I countered the evil queen/old with poison apple spell and I survived. Because of that, I added a few more steps to part one of my Snow White tutorial. I didn’t redo my entire face, I just added a few more fun steps and did a quick video at the end. Enjoy!
For my eyes, I used my brand new Jolie Beauty Lash Lock glue, which I love, and applied “Carol Anne” from Trixie Cosmetics to the upper and lower inner corner of my eyes over my “Tako” shadow. After that, I used the glue again to apply “Slime Time” from Trixie Cosmetics on the upper eye lids right above my eyeliner all the way to the end. I did the same thing with “Slime Time” under the eye as well. Once I fanned the glitter dry, I re applied a thicker layer of my cake liner and then applied my mascara to my bottom lashes.
I wanted to amp up my Snow White look but not so much where I don’t look like her anymore.
Since I didn’t have any highlighter on obviously because Snow White didn’t wear highlighter, I decided to use my sparkly beautiful “Candy Apply Drip” Supreme Frost highlighter from Jeffree Star Cosmetics. I mean could it have been a more perfect name and color for this look?
I wanted to pump up my ruby red lips up a bit so I applied the luscious E.L.F Cosmetics, Jelly Pop, juicy gloss in, “Cherry Pop” to just the center of my lips.
I’m very pleased how this second part of my Snow White makeup tutorial look turned out. It was really fun and I had been wanting to do this look for awhile. I hope you all enjoy this and try either of these looks out for yourself.
OH AND HAPPY HOLIDAYS EVERYONE!
Good morning everyone. I’ve said this many times but for those who didn’t know, my nickname is “Snow White,” and has been since I was little due to my really dark hair, brown eyes, and fair skin. My family members and friends still call me that. Because of this and that I’ve always loved Snow White and have embraced having her as my nickname I decided to do a Snow White tutorial. Her look is very on point to my beauty style, hence why I get called her, and wanted to show step by step instructions to create a fairy tale Snow White makeup look.
Now this makeup look is very beautiful and very simple so I decided to do a two part makeup Snow White tutorial; THE FIRST STEP BY STEP TUTORIAL HERE IS MY SNOW WHITE TUTORIAL BEFORE SHE EATS THE POISON APPLE BY THE EVIL QUEEN/WITCH.
THE SECOND TUTORIAL COMING UP AFTER THIS, IS MY PERSONAL SNOW WHITE TUTORIAL AFTER SHE EATS AND SURVIVES THE APPLE! OF COURSE SHE SURVIVES THE POISON, SHE GETS POISONED BY A WITCH AND SHE IS SNOW WHITE, WHICH IS MY NICKNAME AND I’M A WITCH! BOOM!!!!
Here is my first innocent Snow White step by step tutorial. It’s a a very simple tutorial that anyone can wear on a daily basis. It’s a very beautiful vintage Disney look that anyone of any skin tone can pull off. I’ll tell you exact what I did to create this look plus the products I used:
For my first step, I applied my foundation with a beauty blender and I used Marc Jacobs Re(Marc)able full coverage foundation. It’s great full coverage so I didn’t need concealer.
The second thing I did after applying my foundation was to set it with powder. I decided to use my gorgeous LaMer setting powder. That setting powder is definitely a luxury powder and has very fine mica sparkles in it to give your face a soft beautiful finish. Under my eyes, I used the Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder to help make my eyes sparkle even more.
The third step was doing my eye makeup. This is very easy to recreate. Snow White didn’t really wear eye shadow or eyeliner, especially my signature pinup winged liner. She was a natural beauty. I still wanted to give her a light eye definition so this was I used:
For eyeshadow, I first used my “Tako” white shadow from Sugar pill just in the inner corners. Then I used my classic favorite nude eyeshadow Revlon color stay quad and took the lightest color and swept it all over my eyelid. I wanted to give my crease a light definition so from the same Revlon quad palette, “Addictive 500,” I took the second to lightest shade with the same brush I used before and swept it the crease.
For eyeliner, I used my Laura Mercier cake eyeliner to give a little definition. Again I wasn’t planning on doing a big wing so I used the cake liner just to simply line my eyes making them look bigger. I curled my lashes and applied my Clinique High Impact mascara just on my top lashes. Again the purpose of this makeup look is basically to make the eyes look bigger like Snow White.
For my brows I kept them natural and just used the dark brown brow gel from Brow Bar by Reema just to keep the hairs in place.
After that I applied a soft pink blush to just the apples of my cheeks to give a natural flushed look. For my blush, I used my MAC Peony Pink blush.
For my last step for this look, all I had left was lipstick. Snow White had beautiful red lips so finding a good red lip color was very easy for me. I used the 24/7 Urban Decay lip liner in 714 and my Jeffree Star Velour liquid lip in “Cherry Wet.” I then set my makeup with my new cherry matte setting spray from Pacifica beauty.
Those are all my steps to create my “Snow White” makeup tutorial, (before she eats the poison apple.) Stay tuned for part 2 of this tutorial to see what I look like after surviving the poison.
The Poison Apple and Snow White necklace are from my girl Luna Moon Gothic and my flower apple hair clip is from Pinups and Pearls.
