On average, the process of putting together one of these posts takes about three months. To find images, I have about 10 Tumblrs that I circulate through. Each post roughly has about 50 images, but today, this one has less. I’m posting this one now though because I’m close to 50 and there won’t be any other Tumblrs that I’ll be viewing within the next couple of months. It has also been three months since I posted A Collection Part 49. I’m telling you all of this because that is the only structure I have when it comes to making these. There are no themes. I don’t spend any time re-arranging them in a certain order. The differences in size of images would normally bother me anywhere else, but not here. There are no patterns for colors. I can’t explain to you why I selected this image over that one and I don’t want to. I look at these photos so quickly and I save them in an instant the same way a normal human being would fill out one of those personality tests that you’re not supposed to think too much about it. That’s it! Since the migration, every other post before this has been skewed to the left. Starting now and with post #50, we’re going to center it. It just looks better!

We don’t always time these posts with the end of the year, but it feels good, doesn’t it? Even as I search for photos it’s nice to be able to put something together that wraps up the end of the year and my feelings towards a new year. The start of this post doesn’t look anything like the end of this post, which I think is pretty different for a change. You can definitely tell that I’m feeling some sort of way by the end of this. What is it exactly? That I’m holding on to millennial pink? That I’ve got a love inanimate objects? Those things, but maybe a couple of other things that aren’t so obvious.

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.

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!

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 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…

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 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…
