The badge on the right shoulder of my costume says “100% cute”
My coworkers asked me today if I was wearing a life vest or if I was a missing child on the side of a milk carton. Rude.
We went easy on the costume at work today for the office because tomorrow we’re off to a themed wedding where we won’t be in Halloween costumes exactly, but still dressed up nonetheless in non-traditional wedding attire.
Should be fun! Happy Halloween everyone and stay safe!
I’ve been thinking a lot about our upcoming holiday party in December. I don’t actually listen to a lot of mainstream music and top 40 throughout the year, but this is the one event in the year that I want to hear lots of it! We’re getting ready.
I actually heard about this film a few months back, but this was the first time I’m ever seeing the trailer. When I was growing up Jamie Chung was the Real Worlder I aspired to me – mainly because she was Asian American and pretty tasteful when she appeared on the show in the San Diego season. I also have always loved Bryan Greenberg since his days on One Tree Hill. Who didn’t love Jake AMIRITE?! The two are actually engaged to be married in real life and while I’ve seen them in photos and stuff, I’ve never seen them working together so it will be kind of cool to see how their chemistry translates onscreen.
Are we ready to talk about Madewell’s Spring 2016 collection yet? Probably not, but it’s always exciting to look ahead. My friends used to describe in a word: Futurist – always looking/planning ahead for things that are very very far out into the future so just like I am that way in my life, I’m also the same way with my wardrobe planning. Madewell just released some snaps for Spring 2016 and we’re just as giddy even with it being 4-5 months away.
These are definitely not like the Barbie commercials I saw as a kid. When I stumbled upon this late yesterday evening, I couldn’t wait to share it with my team the very next morning. Not only is it incredibly adorable, but it’s sending along a very powerful message that women can be anything. What we imagine can be a reality! I thought everything about how this campaign was executed was done perfectly from including non-actors for the scenario to the transitioning and even that line, “there’s no high school for the dog.”
These bright and confident young girls did such a great job. I want to share this commercial with every young girl including my favorite niece Lily who is absolutely in love with her Barbie’s.
My office is holding a pumpkin carving session this coming Wednesday and after reading the invite, it donned on me that I’ve only actually “carved a pumpkin” once. And by carve, I mean I watched my dad carve a pumpkin in front of me – your very standard jack-o-lantern. We weren’t all that big into Halloween growing up because let’s be real, all I cared about were them goodies. The candy bars, the lollipops, and mass amounts of sugar. I can only recall that one time where I watched my dad carve a pumpkin. My brother didn’t care about carving as a tradition either so I think my parents caught onto this and every year after that we just bought one pumpkin that we put out on our doorstep to signal to other children and parents that we had candy too. I think it’s great that people get into the spirit of Halloween with pumpkin carving and all of that, but here are some other ideas that I have for my future pumpkin:
