Pins of the week

I love Fall but we don’t love Halloween in our household.  We are not the scary, creepy traditional Halloween family.  We typically visit our church for an alternative night which we love.  We collect our candy and yell “Happy Harvest” as we fill our bags.  All the costumes are innocent and sweet.  Perfect for us.

I remember in Junior High my parents would host the most fun Harvest party were we would bob for apples, dress up in our fun costumes and carve pumpkins.  It was all so innocent and fun. This is the Halloween that I hope to craft for my girls. This week’s Pin Party is geared toward how I enjoy Halloween.  Chic black and white, simple and sweet costumes and fall decor.  We wish you a safe Halloween full of sweet treats and family fun. Pins of the week

Love this chic all black ensemble.  The simple gold accents add just the perfect amount of luxe.

I love fun fall games and bobbing for apples is my all time favorite.

Anemones are the coolest and most vampy flowers. Their high contrast black and white make them the perfect Halloween decor.

Black sparkly polka dot tulle.  I know….It’s pretty dreamy!

We love a gold pumpkin in our house hold but the added sparkle just made it all so swoon worthy!

Sassy and simple Halloween costume perfection on the Olsen twins. 

Fall leaves , hay bales and strewn pumpkins make for the perfect fall entry way to this gorgeous colonial home.

Halloween is two second away and you have been so busy gathering tidbits for the kids costumes and the last minute candy that your costume is a little lacking.  We all have the easy go to’s for Halloween that still work.  Kitty, fairy and witch are always a great standby for a last minute costume. To add a little more of a fun touch you can add some festive makeup to take your simple go to up a notch.  I love being able to use what I have on hand to make things more fun.  The girls went crazy for my fun kitty makeup.  For kitty, fairy and witch makeup tutorials visit step by step instructions on Momtastic.

Pins of the Week

This week’s Pin Party is all things Fall. Sweet treats, cozy getaways and snuggly ensembles.

Pins of the Week- Life with Lipstick On

I was reminded this month by my mom how lovely marriage can be.  It can be nurtured by the simplest gestures.  One is doing what the other likes.  Being together if the best part.

Chic black and white word for everything and looks so lovely paired with this dark berry lip and simple coat.

How cozy does this amazing cabin look?  I could snuggle in there anytime!

I love the airy warmth of this mud room.  So clean and functional.

Salted Chocolate, Raspberry and Pistachio Pots de Crème….basically everything!
