♥DIY Donut Pumpkin♥

One of my favorite things about Halloween is carving pumpkins.  This year I wanted to do something different.  The new trend is painting pumpkins so that's what I did.  I LOVE donuts!!!  I went to Pinterest to find some inspiration.  I think my pumpkin turned out pretty adorable.  I think next year I'll do a few more.

What You Will Need:
-A pumpkin of any size
-A pencil
-Acrylic Paint (any colors you want)
-Paint brushes

1. Pick the pumpkin you want.  I went with a small one so it would be more realistic.
2. Then I took a pencil to outline the frosting.  Take gray paint and go over the outline.
3. Paint the top part of your pumpkin light pink.  Then paint the bottom portion a tan color.
4. After everything is dry use multiple different colors to make sprinkles.

It is that easy!  Did you decorate any pumpkins this year?  I would love to see them!  Tweet me pictures especially if you try this design.

4 Last Minute Halloween Costumes From Your Closet

Most of us will probably be going to some sort of Halloween party this weekend.  There is no reason to go spend $80 on a costume because all you'll need is your closet.  If you are like me then you probably have no clue what to be.  Don't worry I've got you covered!  I came up with 4 costumes that you already own.  Let's get to it!

First up is a scarecrow.  All you'll need is a plaid shirt, preferably red, some ripped jeans, and brown boots.  You can add makeup and a straw hat if you would like.  All you need is a braid and your look is complete.

Next up is a witch.  All that you will need is a black dress and black boots.  Any dress will work as long it's black so just pick your favorite.  The only thing you'll need to but is a witch hat which is less than $5.  If you are crafty then make your own.

Next is a flower goddess.  You'll need a flowy white dress, sandals, and a flower crown.  Think Coachella vibes or the Snapchat filter.  This my favorite for sure.

Last up is a fitness girl.  All you need are yoga pants, a exercise top, and sneakers.  This is probably the best one.  You can go straight from the gym to your party.  Plus you will be super comfortable all night!

Well that is what I came up with!  What was your favorite?  Also, let me know what you are going to be for Halloween in the comments!

Weekly Obsession!

I have missed sharing all my current obsessions with you guys!!!!!  I promise I'm back for good though!  My weekly obsession is.........braided hair ties!!!  I was looking for hair ties that didn't have the metal piece.  The problem is that I have SUPER thick hair so most of them just slide right out.  While scrolling on Ulta I discovered these.  All the reviews said they were great for thick hair so I bought them.  OMG I can't get enough!!!  I bought the neon ones and have the pastel and black one currently in my cart.  I need them all!  The only downfall is only 6 come in a pack and I need like 50!  I guess I'll just have to buy more ;).  What have you guys been loving?  Let me know!

Casual Fall Outfit

Today was the perfect Fall day in Nebraska.  The leaves are finally changing and it is getting a lot cooler out.  Today I thought I would share my OOTD.  I have always wanted a moto jacket but they can be pricey.  I found this one on sale and had to have it!  The sleeves and hood are super soft sweater material and the body part is faux leather.  Under that is my Ninja Turtle 3/4 shirt which got TONS of compliments on.  I decided on dark wash skinny jeans since I was wearing a lighter shirt.  My boots are a chocolate brown which are so comfy.  Everything I'm wearing is from Kohl's.  If you like these types of posts just let me know!!
