The Last Friday in October

I've had a long week, a really long week, & next week isn't going to be better.  I have like everything due ever in all of my classes this week & next so I cannot wait for it to be next Friday already.  It's homecoming  here & I will be spending almost all of my weekend locked away doing homework & studying.  However the best part of my weekend is tonight, at school we have a thing called Hoopsmania.  The only way I can describe Hoopsmania is as a pep rally on steroids, it is done to set off the beginning of the basketball season.  The best part of the night is the end when there is a big musical act, my freshmen year it was Drake, & last year it was Rick Ross, I cannot wait to see who's performing tonight (it's kept a secret)!  So now that I'm done giving you the low down lets get down to business...

Friday's Celebrity Outfit of the Week 
Reese Witherspoon in Calvin Klein Collection at the Elle Women in Hollywood event in Beverly Hills.
This dress is so simple yet so chic.  Reese styles it accordingly keeping with a minimalistic theme, & the simple nude shoes & black clutch really complete the look.  Witherspoon's hair looks effortless pulled back, but with just enough framing her face.  From the minute I saw this look I was in love & knew it was the best I had seen all week.  If there's one thing we can all take away from this favorite look it is that less is more.

-Alexis Bledel at the Us and Them screening in New York City.
-Carrie Underwood at the T.J. Martell Foundation in New York City.
-Sandra Bullock at the Hollywood Film Awards in Beverly Hills.

Weekend Makeup
The weekend is the perfect time to try out a new makeup look, check out the pretty looks below & try one when you go out on the town!

Try a monochromatic look like Jessica Alba, everything from her eyeshadow to lipstick are shades of bronze.  My favorite part of the look is her eyes, the way her makeup is done just really makes them pop.
Wear a deep wine colored lipstick like Jamie Chung, this is a great opportunity to wear one of fall's hottest makeup trends.
Do a smokey eye & nude lips like Lily Collins.  This is a classic look that is always sexy & is a tried & true nighttime look.
Finally I leave you with Drake to pump you up for the weekend.
