Hair washed and conditioned, a bit of Jonathan Silky Dirt and obviously headed to work with my hair still wet. With the rain, it didn't look like Kip Winger, more like beachy hippie waves. I think it fits and looks pretty good.

Lashes curled, two coats of DiorShow in black. On lips is Revlon Super Lustrous Lip Gloss in glossy Rose.
I was supposed to dress up in costume today – this afternoon the employees are invited to bring their kids to trick or treat from desk to desk. I signed up – ended up being the only one outside of the corporate services side (I work in the corporate office of my company, but am in professional services/shmoozing the client). Feel a bit goofy so I stopped by Giant last night to get some Halloween garland to decorate my cube and one of those old-school plastic jack-o-lanterns to hold the candy I will be doling out. It's weird – the corporate services sides is all jazzed up with fake cobwebs and orange lights and witch decals on the windows. My department did get festive over near the copier – some lights and garland but my cube is a bit away from the rest and therefore needed some festivity.
But I didn't dress up. I knew no one in my office would and then it rained and I didn't want to wear baggy coveralls and slosh around in puddles. So I copped out. I guess it's for the best – I have seen one woman in a Halloween-themed sweater (Just say NO to Quacker Factory!) and one guy in my old department is wearing a kilt but not sure what the whole costume is supposed to be and they are the only two dressed up. So I guess it's for the best, though I wish I had some cat ears or something for the kiddies when they come this afternoon.
