Next Day Half-Up

Sweatshirt – Sub Pop / Leggings – Aritzia / Purse – Vince Camuto

We all seem to have this idea of the “morning after” girl being someone in heels and a nice party dress with her makeup all over the place. In my case, I’m just a girl in comfy clothes and a half-up ponytail. For Halloween, I was Pebbles this year! I was so excited about my DIY costume, which really consisted of a sheet of felt that I paid about 50 cents for, a generic green top from Marshalls that I snagged, and my Aritzia black shorts. The hardest part of the costume was finding a bone for my hair. We actually considered using a real dog bone until I realized that I was paying too much for something that was going to make my hair smelly. That’s why props exist. So onto the Halloween shop we went. It was a little bit smaller than we had hoped, but people were able to tell who I was and that is enough for me! The day after celebrating Halloween, I found myself at Stanford Shopping Center for some reason and headed straight there without a shower. We were no longer in costume, thank goodness, but the half-ponytail was evidence of a night out before. I actually kind of love this though and seeing these photos makes me wonder if I should throw my hair up this high more often.

Happy Halloween!

Processed with VSCOcam with hb2 preset

Things we can say about this photo:

  • Can you tell our costumes were actually kid size?
  • 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!

Five Favorite Pins: Pumpkins in 2015

  1. Give it a print! [Homey Oh My!]

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:

Happy November Y’all!

Happy start of November everyone! I hope all of you had a very fun, but safe Halloween last night. I debated for weeks about what I wanted to be for Halloween this year… a loofah, a cupcake, Boo from Monsters Inc. and Ariana Grande. Eventually though, I decided to pick my favorite sassy emoji! It was such an easy costume to make, but I can’t take all the credit for it. I definitely had some help making my text bubble. All in all, it took about 45 minutes, but really it just came down to cutting and pasting. The shirt was borrowed from my mom a very long time ago and I never ended up giving it back so… uh… it’s mine now.

And of course Halloween costumes are more fun when your friends join in…

Halloween Costume For The Win

Is this not the best thing you’ve ever seen? The best part about this is that it’s completely DIY…granted DIY for kids, but I’m sure you could turn this into a costume for an adult if you wanted to. For full details on how to make this exact costume, click here.

Happy Halloween!


Happy Halloween y’all! I hope you’re all having a safe and fun Halloween. I truly felt like an adult today when my co-worker’s kids came into our office for trick-or-treating around the cubicles. I naturally found myself being that girl that asked their parents how many pieces of candy they were allowed, but regardless still gave them a handful each. Kids want that – I know – I used to be one. It’s nice to see everyone getting into the Halloween spirit, but it’s not just the people, it’s the blogs too! Gawker decided to dress themselves up as Tumblr today! Not bad…

DIY Couple Costumes

Last year, I didn’t celebrate Halloween because I was on a retreat the entire weekend. This year, I just didn’t celebrate because I was simply tired. Do you know how much energy it takes to get dressed up and go out on any regular night? And now you have to throw in a costume?! Also, a night out is something I can no longer handle. Four months of being out of college can do that to you.

I promise I was all set to do Halloween this year, but when I gave up on my original costume, I pretty much gave up on the holiday altogether. I stumbled upon Flavorwire’s 13 Last-Minute DIY Couple Costumes. It’s another ‘why didn’t I think of this?’ moment.

Creative Jack-O-Lanterns

Would you believe that I have never carved an actual pumpkin? As a kid, I was much too small and not coordinated enough to do such a thing without hurting myself. Apparently that fear has never really gone away and to this day, I still have not carved a pumpkin. In fact, this year when I suggested we go to the pumpkin patch I said that I wanted to paint a pumpkin (because hello! all the fashionistas of the world are doing it!) Will I be able to carve one this year? Maybe a baby one? Or will I just settle for painting…

In the meantime, Refinery 29 just posted a few photos of some creative LA locals who designed pumpkins this year and there are definitely some that I wouldn’t mind just having in my own place for looks. The stylish pumpkin above was designed by Nony Tochterman, the owner and designer at Petro Zillia

Things I Will Make You Do With Me:

You know who you are.

Hi, how cool is this Darigold corn maze?! I’ve been to corn mazes before and they are alright, but it has always been raining! It’s not exactly the best recipe, is it? However, when I look at a photograph of this perfect maze and the sun shining down on it, I feel like nothing can go wrong in this world.

Locals – this is in Enumclaw!

Check it out all this month. More details here.
