Halloween Parties//BOOKS

Hey there!
I probably mentioned it in a previous post, Halloween party was last night!!! And it was a lot of fun!! I decided to dress up as a vampire, haha. Another fun part was that two of my best friends got to go as well! 

So anyway, my makeup was super spooky and awesome, but as of this time, I am choosing not to share my face on my blog, but you can see the outfit and hair! 

                                                                    My hair/costume! 
                                                               Black dress-Forever 21-$12.50
                              I'm also wearing a choker, but you can't see it in this picture. 
                                                          Are you dressing up for Halloween? 

I had to bring a bag of candy to the dance, and I thought this was fitting. 
I haven't had one yet, but I'm gonna have my leftover candy tonight.
Has anyone seen Fun Size? It's a fun halloween movie for teens. ;P 

Here's the hair dye I used! It turned out a little more pinky purple rather than a "plum" purple, but I was still happen with the results. It was rather inexpensive as far as hair dye goes...I think it was like $6. But of course, it was temporary, and washed out super easily. 

I took this picture a while back for a photography challenge. 
BOOKS! What are you currently reading? I'm reading Toxic Heart (it's the second book in the Mystic City series) and also I'm reading Touched. 

Every Friday morning we get to choose out a soda or special drink, and I chose out this flavour...last week I chose out Pitch Black. This one's Mango heat. I didn't even know they had this! But it was actually surprisingly good, overall. Very mango-y, with a BIT of a funky aftertaste. 

So yeah, that's been my week so far! 
How's your week been going?
Go over and check out her blogs!!

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a sparkly day!

Wild Animals//Mall Trip

Hey there!
I'm back with another blog post full of pictures! 
Now, I'm sure some of you may know that I love feeding our wild animals. We get a variety of animals here. 
Let's start with our squirrels! We get a lot of squirrels here, but my favourite is "Merida". She's quite brave really, and she comes to eat and drink everyday.

Merida!! (Named after the girl from Brave)

Another picture of her. 

Here's a baby bunny hanging out under the shade. I don't remember what we named him..

Here's Alice staring down "Kenan". We have at least 4 chipmunks that collect seed here, which can be annoying because they take it ALL, and it's gone within an hour. 

And a skunk! The picture is awful, but I didn't want to scare her. She's eating leftover seed (she doesn't come anymore; we never really wanted skunks to eat here, but she was persistent, so we had to start cleaning the seed up at sundown.) This one was either named Skunk Skunk or Skunky. I know, such original names. ;P

I described the pictures ABOVE the pictures this time by accident. 

I went to the mall a couple weeks past with a good friend of mine! We went shopping and tried on clothes for fun! We bought a pack of rings together, and here's one of them. ;) We got them from "Icing". 

I also tried on this pretty dress from "Francesca's" I think the store was called. We played a game where she chose out two outfits for me to try on, and I would choose out two for her as well. I looked at the price tag for this one, and it was like $50! :O It was a "fancy" store though. The dressing room had curtains as doors, and they wrote my name on a mini chalkboard outside my room. :')

Below is my favourite dress I tried on. I actually thought about purchasing this one, but decided to wait and come back another day if I really wanted it. It was only $20 from "Charlotte Russe". It's a deep blue, in case if you can't tell from the picture. 

And those are all the pics I have from the mall. We're hopefully going back in a few weeks. ;P Below is just a random pic I took of my soda yesterday! :') It was Mtn. Dew Pitch Black. I'd been wanting to try this flavour for forever but couldn't find it anywhere where they sold it in individual bottles. Finally found it at Weigel's! Unfortunately, it just tasted like grape soda with a hint of "weird" flavour. *shrugs*

That's all I have to share with you today! We're currently on fall break, so that's nice. Have you been enjoying these kinds of posts? If so, let me know! Hopefully I'm going to post some pictures from a dance coming up next week for Halloween. I'm dressing up as a vampire! ;P 
Have a sparkly day!
Do you like to shop at the mall? Have you tried "Pitch Black"?

Delicious Autumn Scents//Kitties!

Hey there! I'm back with another post and this one has some PICTURES! I decided on this blog I wanted to focus a little bit more on pictures of my life rather than just random memes and stuff I found online. Chances are I'll still do that sometimes though! ;P 

I made myself a delicious homemade caramel frappe the other day! I just used: ice, milk, an instant caramel coffee mix and some powder caramel creamer. I topped it with whipped cream, salted caramel bits, and of course, CARAMEL!! ;P It was SOOO good. 

Every few months I like to switch out my lotion products...I have a whole box of lotions, but I can't have them ALL sitting on my nightstand or that would be a huge mess. Normally I choose out a few different scents that go with the season, and this past time I chose out....

This delicious scent! It's from Bath and Body works, and it's called Warm Vanilla Sugar (I guess you can probably see all this in the picture...) But anyway, it's smells so good, and always reminds me of the cooler weather! Plus the packaging is so pretty...look at that rose! 

Here's another wonderful autumn scent! And it's from Bath and Body works, and it's called Cup of Warmth. I love the name too....mmm.....
OH! I just remembered another yummy scent I have stored deep within a drawer from last autumn season! It's a sweet pumpkin scent. And it's also from Bath and Body works...I love that store! It's too expensive to purchase from often, but I have a huge stockpile from all the different times I've bought stuff...

On to my pretty kitties! This cutie's name is Alice! She's really sensitive and sweet, and loves snuggling with me at night. She thinks I'm her mama (for real), so I've always been her favourite.  

And here's my other handsome kitty, Jasper! He's really sweet too, but with a bit more attitude! He thinks he's king of the household, so he likes it when he gets his way. He likes snuggling on our laps. Here's him with his favourite toy, his crinkly ball! 

Pretty sky! The clouds look beautiful here...

And of course, since the blog's name is Cheese and Sparkles, I had to include a pic of some of my glitter singles from my glitter collection!! ;) 

I hope everyone enjoyed this kind of post, I enjoy writing it! I hope everyone has a sparkly day!
Leave a comment below and let me know what are some of your favourite autumn scents!!
