    M&M Halloween

    Over the years working at my school I have enjoyed putting different costumes together for Halloween with some coworkers. I’ve been the Instagram App when we all dressed as different apps, one year my friends and I were Pokemon Go trainers. I’ve been Thanksgiving when we did different holidays, Shark Week, Care Bears, and the list goes on. This year my friend and I decided to do something extremely easy – M&Ms! All we did was order M&M t-shirts from Amazon and that’s it. I was planning to wear white pants with the tee so that we’d look like the M&M characters – white long sleeve tee and white pants…

    Pumpkins at Terhune

    Can you believe Halloween is next week? I had wanted to go pumpkin picking this year since it has been a very long time since I’ve gone, but time flew by and it didn’t happen. But, when I went apple picking last month at Terhune Orchards there were lots of pumpkins for sale. I took this photo because I knew it would be a great one to use for the holiday. Perfect pumpkin/fall photo! Have a great Friday – the last Friday in October!

    Halloween/Fall Tablescapes

    I love sharing tablescape inspo with you guys mainly because it’s an excuse for me to scour the Internet for dreamy table settings. Usually I wait until closer to Thanksgiving and Christmas to share tablescape ideas, but I saw a few people doing Halloween tables and so I decided to do something more Halloween related and less Thanksgiving-y. Now, I have to preface this by saying I basically just chose tables that were more fall inspired rather than Halloween because I don’t really like Halloween decor. I like pumpkins and fun stuff like that, but that’s kind of fall too and not limited to Halloween. I hate and I mean hate the gory,…

    Sinful Colors – Conjured Color

    If you’ve been following me for a while then you know I typically paint my own nails. It’s not that I don’t like going to the nail salon, but I don’t usually have the time and I’d rather save the money. So unless I’m treating myself to a mani/pedi or have somewhere special to go where I’d like to get my nails professionally done – I’ll do them myself. In fact this past summer when I had a marathon of weddings to go to within 1 month, I just did my own nails each time. Now, even though I do my own nails I am by no means an expert…

    Cute Halloween Movies

    So if you know me, you know I do not like being scared. I don’t like scary or creepy movies. That also means I don’t like scary, creepy Halloween costumes. I don’t hate Halloween, but it’s definitely not my favorite holiday. As a kid, I loved picking out a costume, going trick or treating, etc. But, I was the kid who always dressed up as something fun and cute like a princess, fairy, angel etc. I like the cute, whimsical version of Halloween. I don’t like the bloody, gory version. Costumes that involve fake blood? No thanks. Painting your face to look like a corpse or zombie? Nope. Since I don’t…

    Happy Halloween

    Happy Halloween! Are you dressing up for the day? Did you go out over the weekend? I went out with a few friends over the weekend and we completely forgot that it was Halloween weekend and everywhere we’d go would be packed with Halloween parties. We were definitely the only people not dressed up! We also got scared by a guy in the street who was standing outside a store as a tall bush. As we were walking I thought I saw the bush move out of the corner of my eye but when I did a double take I figured I must be imagining it because it wasn’t moving.…

    Pumpkin Planters

    While browsing Pinterest (what else is new) I was looking for a fall decor craft/idea. I saw pumpkins being used as planters which I thought was a brilliant idea and really cute. However, I quickly found out that the one I originally saw was made using a plastic decorative pumpkin and when I tried to search for real pumpkin planters they were either done by real florists and elaborate or hot glued succulents on top of the pumpkin. But I didn’t see a reason why I couldn’t use a real pumpkin as a planter so that’s what I did! I went to my local farmstand and got 2 medium sized…

    Six Flags in the Fall

    If you follow my Instagram Stories, then you might’ve seen that I went to Six Flags 2 weekends ago. I decided to share a few photos from my day there since it was decorated for Fright Fest/Halloween and do a little reminiscing about my teenage years at Fright Fest. I went with my friend to Six Flags (Great Adventure is the one here in NJ and is one of the biggest in the country) and we had to plan it weeks in advance as we both have busy schedules. I thought it would be fun to go to the park because I hadn’t been in the fall in years. I…

    October 2016 Favorites

    Can you believe it’s already November? I can’t. It didn’t occur to me, until I saw someone somewhere post it yesterday, that Thanksgiving is only 4 Thursdays away from now which boggles my mind. Before I get into this month’s favorites, I wanted to share a selfie from Halloween yesterday. I mentioned in my post yesterday, that I did a group costume with 2 friends from work. We went as Pokemon Go Trainers. We got the t-shirts, all wore black shirts underneath (because it was chilly), wore jeans and black shoes. Oh yeah and wore backpacks! We couldn’t find plain black baseball caps or else we would’ve worn those too.…

    Halloween Sweet Potato Faces

    Happy Halloween! Are any of you dressing up today or did you over the weekend? My friends at work and I are doing a 3-person group costume that was easy to put together. I didn’t do any DIY like last year or the year before because we didn’t really have the time or energy to do that. So this year we ordered shirts instead of making them. We’re going to be Pokemon Trainers – we got different color t-shirts, will wear jeans, black shoes, backpacks, and our hair tied up in ponytails. We all tried to find black baseball caps and had no luck! I will post a picture tomorrow as…
