Halloween Mystery Bag

309

As I mentioned in my 13 Things on Etsy You Need If You Love Halloween post, I ordered this Halloween mystery bag from SugarMilkCo and told you I would post my thoughts once I received it. I was absolutely excited to receive this and see what goodies I got. It was also my first time ordering from this little vegan bath and body shop, and if you continue reading, you’ll find it was a bit of a hit and a miss.

October Glam Bag

The bag:
The makeup bag this month is definitely one of my favorites. Though my camera makes it look a brighter red than it actually is, it has a nice lace design and a little bat on the zipper. It’s an awesome gothic-style bag that you can use year-round if you want. Although this style is one of my most favorites, I prefer the design of last year’s October bag, which is still my #1 favorite. If you’ve forgotten what that one looks like, you can see it here.

Questions:

What’s your favorite Fall outfit?
To be honest, I generally just wear the same type of clothes year-round, so I don’t have a favorite. I tend to stick with jeans and a t-shirt, and when it’s chilly I put a hoodie over top. Although, I do have a purple hoodie that I really like. I also have a dark blue fuzzy sweater that I like to wear in the Fall and Winter, but I hate that it’s hand-wash only. I would love to wear more sweaters if it wasn’t for that.

What is Fall weather like where you live?
Here in Maryland, we always joke about how we experience four seasons within one week. It seems to change from day to day. For example, the other day was cloudy and rainy in the 60’s. The next day it was sunny and in the 80’s, feeling like peak Summer. Then at night, it drops down to the 30’s and 40’s, feeling like Winter. We’ve even gotten snow in the Fall before. I’ll never forget the snow storm we got some years ago. It happened on Halloween. It was snowing all day, temperatures were in the 30’s, and it knocked our power out for 12 hours. I spent the entire day in bed just trying to stay warm. Thankfully, most of the snow we get does not knock our power out. That was just a particularly windy and wet snow storm.

13 Things on Etsy You Need If You Love Halloween

Today I am presenting you with some awesome Halloween finds from Etsy. You can find so many awesome items on Etsy. Plus, they’re sold by ordinary people like you and me, or people trying to grow a business, as opposed to big-time companies, which is awesome. I always like supporting the little people. I am dying to have everything on this list!
