Oh Halloween

Standard

Halloween could be fun or scary. Since I am scared of just about everything scary, I make it fun! One of my favorite parts about Halloween is the creative costumes. I know that girls these days take it as an opportunity to wear less clothing but that should not be the case. Halloween is a time for people to use their imagination and create/buy a fantastic costumes.

People might not be focusing on themselves, but maybe getting creative with their animals. Here are a few pictures of creative animal costumes that I loved.


These dogs deserve an applause for being great troopers and letting us be amused by their amazing costumes. Between all of my friends, many of them have gotten a dog or adopted. My dog means so much to me and i think that since we have a new addition to our family, dogs have been on my mind a lot.

How Cleaver…

Standard

You know when you have that one pair of shoes that you just love to wear. They fit to your feet so nicely and are extremely comfortable?

I do for sure and those are my black Toms. Needless to say they are not the most well made shoes I have bought but I love to wear them. The problem with wearing a certain pair of shoes all the time is they get worn down.

My poor Toms have holes in them, but I found a way to save money while keeping it cute! Thanks to thehomemademaker.com I was able to find this brilliant idea and share with you!

Fix your Toms with FABRIC. How brilliant of an idea!
Here are some more picture, but for more information on how to fabric your toms, go to http://thehandmadehomemaker.blogspot.com/2011/07/diy-fabric-covered-toms-tutorial.html

All she needed was decorative fabric, glue, scissors, and needle and thread if you need to fix any holes before gluing the fabric onto the shoe. I am hoping to do this in the next few weeks, and once I finish my shoes, I will post pictures to show you my new Toms. Thanks to Homemade Homemaker for sharing this idea with everyone.

Hair Obsession

Standard

Growing your hair out is a challenge, and has been taking on this challenge for some time now. My senior year of high school, I decided to cut off all my hair. I just wanted a change, something different. Well I didn’t think about prom around the corner when I had this “brilliant idea” of short hair.

I am now a junior in college and my hair is finally looking longer. With that being said, it is time to play! I went through different website on how to style your hear.

Here are a few hairstyles I have fallen in love with.


Different Braids


The Curl

One of my favorite celebrity look is Lauren Conrad. From her hair to make-up to the different combinations she makes. She knows how to change it up in an elegant way. Her website is great for how-to’s with hair and make-up.

Here is a video she has made on how to do a fishtail braid.

Also go to her website. http://thebeautydepartment.com/ if you love to change-up your look here and there, you will love to see all the ideas that Lauren Conrad has to share.

It’s October

Standard

Get excited everyone; Halloween is now around the corner. One of my favorite things to do in October is to decorate pumpkins.

I bet a lot of people remember spending time with your family carving pumpkins, I know I do. We would all go and pick out the best pumpkins and spend a plethora of time trying to figure out what we are going to carve that year. Since I am not in college, I don’t just want to stop the tradition, but I do want to change it up a little.

This year I want to do something new instead of the typical, get a stencil, and cut holes in the pumpkin. I want to use arts and crafts to decorate pumpkins. I took advantage of my research skills and found some great idea on ways to decorate pumpkins.

With paint…

With Fabric…

With Masks…

Even Toilet Paper…

I find these different ideas a great way to change-up the way you can decorate a pumpkin! This could even be a way to stand out from all the other pumpkins being made around you.

I believe I am going to try to play with paint on my pumpkins this year!

Upload a picture of your decorated pumpkins to my comments, and we can share our ideas!
