Songs For Your Halloween Party Playlist

29 Oct

2013-10-29 14.54.04

The title says it all.

It’s that time of the year again. I’m sure many of you are invited to some sort of Halloween party and eagerly preparing your costume. But what about the people who are HOSTING the party? They have a lot to prepare, and one of those things is the MUSIC! Sometimes it is hard to choose which music to play at your party. Let’s just say that I am here to help. Here is a list of songs to play at your Halloween party (most of them are pretty old, so bear with me).

  1. “Abracadabra” by Steve Miller Band
  2. “Bad Moon Rising” by Creedence Clearwater revival
  3. “Boris the Spider” by the Who
  4. “Clap for the Wolfman” by Guess Who
  5. “I Put a Spell on You” by Screamin’ Jay Hawkins
  6. “I Want Candy” by The Strangeloves
  7. “Psycho Killer” by Talking Heads
  8. “Scary Monsters” by David Bowie
  9. “Somebody’s Watching Me” by Rockwell (super cool!)
  10. “The Monster Mash” by Bobby Pickett (one of my favourite Halloween songs)
  11. “This is Halloween” from Tim Burton’s The Nightmare before Christmas
  12. “Thriller” by Michael Jackson (same goes for this one)
  13. “Witch Doctor” by David Seville (Love this one too!)
  14. “Witchy Woman” by the Eagles

And there you have it. I would love to know which songs you will be using at your Halloween party (let me know in the comment section below)! 🙂

The Procrastinating Beauty Blogger Tag

12 Oct

Lately I have been looking for some fun tags to do on my blog. One thing I noticed is that a lot of those tags get passed around by one person tagging another person. Well obviously I was not tagged in those, and I clearly don’t want to ruin the spirit of those tags by posting one without being tagged. (Confusing sentence!)

Anyways, I stumbled upon one tag that, it seems, anyone can do. Although I am not exactly a beauty blogger, my blog will have more beauty posts in the future. After all, I am a new blogger (I only started at the beginning of September. So now, let’s get down to business. I found this tag on http://www.beautybroadcast.net/ . Here goes nothing!

1. Name a beauty regime that you rarely do?

I rarely use a base coat before I apply nail polish. Mainly because I always forget. 🙂

 

2. Is washing your make-up brushes something that you do regularly?

Oh, well this is awkward. The answer is no. I don’t. I don’t always use a makeup brush as I don’t put any powders on my face.

 

3. How long will you last with chipped nail polish?

I don’t even last 1 minute with chipped nails. I become obsessive and chip away all the nail polish on my nails. 😛

 

4. How long will you put off buying/replacing a beauty product, even if you need it?

If I really need it, I buy the product as soon as I can, after finding out that it has run out! If I don’t need it that badly, then I put off replacing that beauty product for maybe a few days to a week.

 

5. What is your worst beauty habit?

Not being able to keep my nails long. No, I don’t bite my nails, for those of you wondering, but I just can’t manage to keep myself from breaking them. I don’t know if breaking them is the right word or not but that’s how it is.

 

6. Name something non-beauty related that you put off doing all the time?

I always put off doing my laundry 😦

 

7. When going out somewhere, do you leave getting ready to the last minute?

No! I start getting ready at least one hour prior to heading out. And of course I get obsessive sometimes and instead of one hour it becomes 1 hour and 30 minutes.

 

8. Can you commit to spending bans?

Sometimes. Only when I am tired of shopping. Which doesn’t happen too often. 😉

 

9. How organized are your make-up and nail polish collections?

Extremely organized! I end up re-organizing my collections again and again just for the hell of it!

 

I know the answers are really short, but that’s all for now. If there are any tags (they don’t necessarily have to be about beauty) that you would like to me to do, then let me know in the comment section below, and if you aren’t already, make sure to follow my blog.

Outfit of the Day + NEW! Blog Button :)

30 Sep

Hey there! Just to let everyone know, this post is going to be more of an update post and and outfit of the day wrapped into one. First, let’s get the update out of the way 🙂

Many of you probably haven’t noticed that I now have a button for my blog (displayed on the side bar).  I mostly made the button because I have just been informed of something called a button swap. This means that blogger A  displays blogger B’s button on their (blogger A’s) blog, and vise versa.

For any blogger out there interested in swapping buttons with me, please contact me at maritimemango7@gmail.com

Here’s what the button looks like:

OUTFIT OF THE DAY

Now it’s time for the outfit of the day. I know it’s autumn but there are some semi warm days. This is what I wore today. An orange cut-out pullover, (underneath the pullover I wore a short black tank top), a pair of simple blue jeans, a pair of converse and a long necklace. 🙂

Welcome to My Blog!

2 Sep

So this is my first post, eh?

And somehow you’ve stumbled upon it. It might not be as interesting or well written as you might have expected. Let me start off by promising the quality and content of my blog will improve. At first glance this blog looks very empty….which it is of course.

I have been a supporter of many different blogs, but now I thinks it’s my turn to try and do something to benefit others instead of just idly watching. That is why I am asking you, the reader, to give me a chance. Before you know it, this blog will not be empty! I will post as often and respond to comments as often as I can.

Thank you.

Make sure to subscribe/follow 🙂 And feel free to leave a comment.
