How Can You Not Love Pumpkins??

My favorite part of the the Season's festivities is going and picking a pumpkin to carve! If anyone lives around Portland, Sauvies Island is a great place to find the perfect pumpkin. I went on a cloudy day last week with my roommates. We each took our time picking out the perfect pumpkin. I don't know about you but I'm picky. I don't like pumpkins with warts, or oval shaped. I like them perfectly round and fat with a burnt orange color! It was definitely chilly but that is the perfect weather for a fall outing.

After obtaining the perfect pumpkin we spent hours on Pinterest trying to figure out what to carve. I don't know about you but I'm no pro at carving! I always do the normal easy scary face with a big smile. I wanted to do something different! I decided to carve a minion!  I love the movie despicable me and they are so cute! They run around chanting "banana", so random yet so fitting for their character! I found a stencil online and tried my best to copy it. After 45 min my pumpkin was complete! From certain angles it looks good! Others are a little iffy, it was hard! But I'm still proud that I went out of my comfort zone and tried something fun. I love my pumpkin and can't wait to put my candle inside and leave it on my porch for Halloween. 

Halloween is Almost Here!

Halloween is tomorrow! I must say it is not my favorite holiday, but who doesn't like dressing up for one night!? I personally like the tradition I have of making pizza, renting movies, and passing out candy to the kids. Last year was the first time that I actually went out with my girlfriends and it was a blast! I just take a throw back Thursday moment, we decided to dress up as celebrities. It was pretty funny! I decided to be Nikki Manaj My roommate was Katy Perry, and our friends were Keisha and Lady Gaga. It was a fun night for sure filled with lots of eating and drinking.

This Halloween two of my co-workers and I decided to dress up as characters from one of our favorite t.v shows as kids. Can you take a guess?? The POWERPUFF GIRLS! I use to be obsessed with Bubbles but for this I'm being Buttercup, the green one. What are you dressing up for Halloween? I would love to see everyone's creative ideas! Post a pic in the comment box below. Let the festivities begin. Happy Halloween!

"Fall" Up Your Look

Hey guys I have an awesome blog that you should check out if you are interested in some makeup tips! Zoella is 24 years old and started her blog up in 2009. She definitely has an expertise in make up department. Plus she is beautiful! I find her blog very interesting and her posts very relatable. Her blog is fun and full of great pictures, as well as videos! But if you think it just covers makeup wait for your mind to be blown. She also posts about cosmetics in general like what face washes are good to use(skin care) what soap brands are best, life advice, and random fun posts. Here is a link to her blog check it out!

One of her blog posts goes hand in hand with my blog on Fall! She has a great video introducing the look of golden bronze eyes, and plum looking lips. I like when fall collections come out because of all the dark and shimmery pallets. It is the time of year I buy all my lip stains and lips sticks. I can have around 5 tubes at a time, it gets addicting! It is the perfect way to boost up your look a little bit. When I wake up late to work throw on my face primer a little mascara, a lip color and I'm ready to bolt out the door. But it also brings a sense of classiness to a look. Say you have a dinner or special occasion throw on a black dress and pop some color with a crimson lip stick and smokey eyes. Hands down fall makeup is very unique, I feel like people step out of their comfort zones with fall colors. Someone who may not wear insane makeup everyday may convince themselves to try something new since everyone else is. It is the perfect time to play around and mix and match those tones.

Scarf Heaven

Finally the time is here.....the time for scarves! scarves are the perfect accessory for fall. When the breeze is coming in and the chilly morning air is here, you will want a scarf! There are many different reasons and outfits to pair a scarf with. there are days when I just want to put on a big comfy sweater with some yoga pants, boots, and a scarf. But then of course you get tired of the lazy look everyday and maybe want to dress up a bit. Walking outside in a dress probably isn't the smartest idea, you will freeze. But you always have the option of throwing on some tights wedged boots and a scarf to keep you warm. I love when church time comes around and I get to dress up my winter dresses with my infinity scarves. Then you have SNOW days. Snow days are the days that you want your thickest scarf to be prepared for the icy snow flakes. These scarves you would want for tubing, skiing, snowboarding, towards the end of fall in general you will be happy you got one!

Welcoming Fall!

Hi everyone, Fall is here! I'm so excited to share with you guys all the reasons that I love this season. I want to share some ideas on......


  Fall fashion is one of my favorites. I call it sweater weather! You can bust out your sweaters, scarfs, leggings, packing up all your summer choices. Along with clothes you have makeup. It's the time when the plum, red, and dark browns come into play. Colors of lipstick and eye shadows are endless. Not mention you have hair colors. I personally like the fact that it gives me an excuse to put red in my hair. 


Pumpkin pie is one of favorite desserts of fall. Fall flavors are always spiced and I love it! Drinks like pumpkin chai's or apple cider are perfect examples of drinks for the season. Brown sugar cinnamon squash is one of my roommates go to side dishes. Sweet potato are also a great choice! There is just so much you can do with a pumpkin and fall vegetables! Lots of delicious fall dessert ideas coming as well! 


Need some idea on how to spend your time with family and friends?? Going to a pumpkin patch is always fun! You also have choices like corn mazes and haunted houses in the fall! Carving pumpkins with the family and watching movies by the fire. Put a little thought and you can find some awesome ways to stay busy.......

I have so much more that I can talk about! I hope you guys enjoy my blog, here's to making some new Fall Classics!
