Keeping Up With Karen

Howdy Chums…

Yippee, it’s the first Sunday of October – and you know what that means… autumn is officially here, AS is the countdown to ‘Trick or Treating’ too ūüėÄ *dramatic cackle* When I was a little girl, Halloween was probably my favourite time of year. There was something so exciting about dressing up in ghoulish costumes and scaring¬†yourself witless with local ghost stories etc. Now I tend to look forward to the fireworks, pumpkin carving and curling up with a DVD; namely Hocus Pocus, which never fails to amuse me – even into my 30’s! Are you a fan of Halloween, or like my hubby do you consider it just another day of the year? *eye roll*

As for today, well I’ve a few things on the agenda – firstly a huge mug of tea followed by a good read of my favourite glossy mag ‘Glamour’. It seems like forever since I’ve sat down and spent some time flicking through the pages, cooing over all the makeup goodies and reading the fun articles. I’m also hoping to get a little filming done as unfortunately my aches and pains put a ginormous¬†scupper on my schedule this week – so keeping fingers crossed I gather up the energy for a beauty chatter today! What’s your plans?

As always if you’re starting the day off with a dose of blog reading then why not take a peek at some of the shenanigans that’s been happening here on Confetti & Curves the past few days…

Something extra special happened yesterday… something that I never ever expected, yet it feels like warranting the clinking of champagne flutes¬†& igniting of fireworks¬†in celebration!!
