From Cover To Closet (A Good Girl’s Guide To Murder) // Toss-Up Tuesday

Hi Friends,
It’s been ages since I’ve done a fashion post, so I thought it was about time to bring them back. This time, I drew inspiration from the ‘A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder’ trilogy. I’ve created three different looks, each inspired by one of the book covers from the main trilogy. There is a novella, but I wanted to focus this post on the main three books.

Halloween Tag // Toss-Up Tuesday

Hi Friends,
Happy Halloween! Today, I am going to be doing the “Halloween Tag” this lifestyle tag was created years ago, 2011 to be exact, by some popular YouTubers at the time. I have been wanting to do a Halloween tag for a while and what better day to post one than the holiday itself.



I know that this film does not take place on Halloween, but lets face it most of us probably watch it in October. My husband and I always celebrate our anniversary, which just so happens to be October 31st, by watching a movie about marriage. Therefore, probably for this reason alone makes it my favorite Halloween film, but it is also a great movie with wonderful songs.



Do people actually remember when they stopped going trick-or-treating? Because, my 31 year old self does not. Honestly, it was probably by the time that I was 10 or 11 years old. I am the youngest out of five, so when my older siblings stopped caring to trick-or-treat, I probably did too.



This is going to be very basic but my favorite costume is going to have to be Sally from “The Nightmare Before Christmas.” I did not have a huge wedding, but I and my husband got married on Halloween dressed as Jack and Sally from the movie. Three years later, I still have my Sally dress.



We usually just stay in on Halloween. I am going to stay in my pjs, read, and watch movies. So, no dressing up for me. However, if I were to dress up, I would go as Lydia Deetz (from ‘Beetlejuice’) in the red wedding dress.



Nope! I am 100% a horror movie girlie, but I have no desire to put myself in a scary situation, despite it being all for fun. I like to keep my hauntings in book and movie form.



This is difficult because both are awesome. However, I am going to say, vampires. I love me a good vampire story, and I find vampires to be way sexier than werewolves. Even though my husband likes to joke, the werewolves never wear shirts.



I do have a sweet tooth, but Reese’s are probably my favorite candy. I actually do not like peanut butter at all, except in a Reese’s. If I got to choose two candies my second would for sure be Sour Patch Kids, which I think everyone loves.



Of course! I admit that I am not the best decorator, but I do love, putting up a few Halloween decorations. I think decorating makes holidays come to life a little more.



My least favorite costume, which is also the one I have the most memories of, is The Statue Of Liberty. Not only was I just wrapped in sliver fabric, but my third-grade teacher was also The Statue Of Liberty. My 8 year old self was very embarrassed, and I looked like I was a left over wrapped in foil.



I know that I was a witch a few times, but I remember being Belle from “Beauty and the Beast” twice. Many of our costumes were homemade, but my mom actually bought my Belle dress from the Disney store, and I was obsessed with it.



Yes! I think that if you do not believe in ghosts, you are being closed-minded. Sometimes, seeing is not always believing. Sometimes you just have to believe in the unknown.



I have no idea what this means because my Halloweens have been pretty normal. I have never had a traumatic or scary Halloween. I am grateful for this to be the case.


This tag was so fun to do, and I tag anyone who would like to do it. I hope you have a happy and safe Halloween. Please celebrate the holiday by giving my blog a follow.

Until The Next Chapter,

Characters & Costumes // Toss-Up Tuesday

Hi Friends,
Halloween is practically here, and I wanted to do a fun Halloween costume post! So I thought it would be fun to share what I think some bookish characters would be for Halloween.


Coraline‘ by Neil Gaiman
This one was a no brainer. She would simply go as a black cat. It is an easy and laid-back costume, especially for someone like Coraline, who does not typically like to get all dressed up. Also, cats are pretty significant to her, so I think she would be more than happy to celebrate Halloween as one.


A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder’ by Holly Jackson
Pip is the main character in this mystery book trilogy, and because of her love for solving crime, I believe she’d would go as a classic teen detective, Nancy Drew. Both girls are smart and driven, and always find themselves caught up in some sort of mystery.


A Merry Little Meet Cute’ by Julie Murphy and Sierra Simone
In this book, Bee, a plus-sized pornstar, and Nolan, a former boy band member, fall in love. I think that they’d do a couples costume, and what is more classic than Sandy and Danny from Grease? Not only is it a musical type of costume for Nolan, but Sandy’s bad girl look at the end of the film would be right up Bee’s alley because it is classic, yet sexy.


I am not sure everyone will agree on these costume choices, but I think they work well for the characters. This was a really fun post to put together, and I would love to know what you all think of it. Please share and like this post because it really does help my blog. Before you go, give the blog a quick follow.

My Fall Makeup Bag // Toss-Up Tuesday

Hi Friends,
In today’s post, I am going to talk about what is in my makeup bag, and the beauty products that I like to use in the fall. I would not say that I am a huge makeup girlie, but I do find that makeup makes me feel more confident. Also, I am not going to mention things like foundation, concealer, setting powder, or mascara because those products do not typically change from season to season.

Blush

The blushes I enjoy in the fall are usually red or berry colors. One of my favorites is the MAC Cosmetics blush in ‘Burnt Pepper, ’ which is a beautiful, deep matte red shade. Another great fall blush in my makeup bag that I find to be a similar to the MAC one, but a bit more shimmery, is ‘Brick Red’ by e.l.f. Cosmetics. These are the two blushes I am always reaching for in the fall.

Bronzer

My go-to-fall bronzer is the Too Faced ‘Chocolate Soleil’ Matte Bronzer in medium/deep. However, currently in my fall makeup bag, I have an e.l.f. Cosmetics Halo Glow Contour in fair/light. It is a new product that I am testing.

Highlighter

This is probably my absolute favorite beauty product, so I have a lot to choose from. In the fall, I like to go for a more white highlighter. The two currently in my makeup bag are the e.l.f. Halo Glow Highlighter in ‘Rose Quartz.’ The other is the I Heart Revolution Disney Cinderella Highlighter in ‘Just Before Midnight.’

Face Palette

I have a ton of face palettes, but the one that I keep in my fall makeup bag is the Makeup Revolution The Simpsons Treehouse of Horror Face Palette Spooktacular. There is no better face palette that I could have chosen for the fall time.

Eyeshadow Palette

I am no longer really an eyeshadow wearer, but I love a good seasonal eyeshadow palette. In my fall makeup bag, I have my ColourPop cosmetics original ‘Hocus Pocus’ palette. The colors are so pretty, and you can create a perfect fall-eye look with just this one palette.

Lipstick

As for lipstick, I have become more of a natural lip girl, but in my makeup bag, I have three that are perfect for this time of year. These are the three lipsticks released in the Makeup Revolution X Corpse Bride Collection. The colors represent Emily, Victor, and Victoria.

Hope you enjoyed getting a sneak peek into my makeup bag. I know that this was a different type of post from me, but I love sharing other parts of my personality besides my love of books. However, don’t worry, the book content is not going anywhere, so remember to follow the blog to get notified whenever there is a new post.

The Selection Series – From Cover To Closet // Toss-Up Tuesday

Hi Friends,
It’s been a while since I have done a fashion post here on the blog, but they are some of my favorite posts to create. This time, I took inspiration from ‘The Selection‘ trilogy by Kiera Cass book covers. These covers are stunning, and I created outfits inspired by them. I have only read the first book in the series, but I do know that it is a classic young adult dystopian trilogy. Therefore, I hope that you find that these outfits embodied the covers as much as I thought they did.

In the comments, leave me with your thoughts on the book series. In addition, tell me which outfit is your favorite. Do not forget that you can follow me on Instagram (@books.with.bunny) and like my Facebook page. Before you leave, give this post a like and follow the blog, because your support really does mean a lot to me.

The Mistletoe Motive // Books Meet Beauty // Toss-Up Tuesday

Hi Friends,
It’s Bookmas Day 20! Today, I’m going to be doing another ‘Books Meet Beauty’ post. Here, I have created a makeup look inspired by a book cover. For this makeup look, the cover that I took inspiration from this time was ‘The Mistletoe Motive’ by Chloe Liese.

From what I’ve gathered, the book is a grumpy meets sunshine, enemies-to-lovers holiday romance. Although, I have yet to read this novella, I have heard that it’s a cute quick holiday adult contemporary.

You do, however, still get a holiday vibe. In the comments, let me know you thoughts on the book, and the makeup look I created for it!

Book Cover Fashion: Taylor Jenkins Reid // Toss-Up Tuesday

Hi Friends,
Today is going to be another “fashion inspired by books” post, which are always fun to create. I have never read any of Taylor Jenkins Reid’s books, but I know they are widely popular. However, when I thought of doing a book cover fashion post, her books were the first that came to mind. I chose three of her most popular books, and created outfits inspired by each cover. I personally think these looks match these book covers perfectly.

Let me know your thoughts on these looks in the comments. Also, tell me which one is your favorite! If you like these types of posts, please like and share. And don’t forget to hit the follow button before you leave, so you can get notifications for new posts!

I Heart Spring TAG 2022 // Toss-Up Tuesday

Hi Friends,
Spring is practically here! Although, this isn’t my favorite time of year I do love it when the seasons change. I thought that it would be fun to do a spring tag. This one is for the early days of YouTube and blogging it’s the “I Heart Spring” tag.

💋 Favorite spring nail polish?

I don’t have one nail polish that is my go-to in the spring time. I used to reach for pastel colors, but this spring I have been all about the bright neon shades. I would have to say my current favorite spring nail colors are orange and hot pink.

💋 What is your must-have lip color this spring?

I don’t branch out with my lip colors, yet I tend to play around with bold purple lipsticks in the spring. Honestly, I have no idea if this shade looks good on me, but I will still rock it.

💋 Show us your favorite spring dress!

I don’t think that I have one favorite spring dress, but more of a style of dress. I think that skater dresses are perfect for spring. I own a few that can be dressed up or down for all occasions. Also, they look great paired with a cardigan for those cooler spring days.

💋 What’s your favorite flower?

I am not a big flower person, so I don’t know many by name. I do like Lilies and Daisies.

💋 Favorite spring scarf/accessory?

I think that flower crowns are super cute to wear in the spring time. I would categorize them as hair accessories, which in my opinion counts. Yes, some might think they’re childish, or not for everyday use, but I think they make an outfit more stylish.

💋 What spring trend(s) are you most excited about this year? (Makeup, fashion or both!)

I read that colored lashes where the new trend for spring, and I am here for it. I don’t do many colorful eye looks, so colored mascara would be a cool way to add a pop to my makeup.

💋 Favorite spring candle?

As you probably guessed, my favorite candles are from Bath and Body Works. It was hard for me to pick a favorite, but I would have to say Peach Bellini. I am terrible at describing scents, so I am not even going to try. However, if you like fruity, sweet smells this one is perfect for you.

💋 Favorite body spray/perfume for spring?

The perfume that is my favorite in spring is the original Daisy by Marc Jacobs. I don’t buy a lot of higher end perfumes, yet I will never regret getting this one. The scent is very subtle and gives me spring vibes.

💋 What is spring like where you live?

I am going to guess that this question is about the weather. Where I live spring season is my least favorite time of year. We don’t have overly hot springs, or colder ones. The days usually stay within the 70s. However, May and June are tornado season for my state. I am super scared of tornadoes, which is why I dread spring time.

💋 What’s your favorite thing about spring?

I love the vibrancy of spring! This might be a weird answer, and hard for me to explain. I love that everything blooms and comes a live again in spring.

💋 Are you a spring cleaner?

Yes and no. In the past, I was not into spring cleaning at all. This year I am on a mission to spring clean and organize. I don’t know if I am going to stick to this plan, but I am going to try.

💋 Any plans for spring break or an upcoming vacation?

I don’t have any vacations planned for the spring, or this year in general. Although, I would like to travel more in the future. As of now, I will be spending the rest of spring at home with my hubby and pets.

These questions where a blast to answer! I tag all of you, so let me know in the comments if you do the tag. Don’t forget to like and share this post. Also, follow my blog to get notified whenever a new post goes up.

Start A Project-Pan // Toss-Up Tuesday

Hi Friends,
Should you start a project-pan? I always ask myself this question, since my makeup collection is pretty large. Most of my eye-shadow palettes have never been used before. If you are unaware of what a project pan actually is then let me fill you in. It is where you pick a selected number of beauty products, which can include makeup, hair and skincare items that you would like to use up by the years end.

Downsize Your Makeup Collection

Obviously the number one reason to start a project pan is to minimize your makeup collection. If you are anything like me you might have a ton of foundations or highlighters, or a ton of eyeshadow palettes. A project pan will slowly but surely help you downsize your makeup collection significantly.

Get Your Moneys Worth

Sometimes we forget that beauty products cost a lot, and have expiration dates. So, starting a project-pan will ensure that you get to some of the products that will be expiring soon. Or, even just the products that you haven’t even used.

Rediscover Your Makeup Collection

Remember that holy grail concealer, favorite dry shampoo. Participating in a project pan can help you get to know your products all over again. It might even give you the chance to fall back in love with some old favorite products.

Saves You Money

The whole point of a project pan is to downsize. By focusing on your own products you are less likely to buy any new beauty items. This will help you continue to add more products to an already overwhelming amount. And, it will make your bank account happy too.

Would You Recommend

Doing a project pan can give you a good sense of the type of beauty products you like. Also, you might find products that you would definitely repurchase in the future, and, or recommend to others.

These are some reasons to commit to a project pan, but if you are a minimalist when it comes to beauty products than just keep doing what you are doing. Before you go give my blog a follow, and leave a comment letting me know if you are doing a project-pan this year.

Until The Next Chapter,
Bunny
