This is Halloween 2020

Happy Halloween!!!

Things may be different this year but that doesn’t mean we still can’t have fun! Since this is the last Halloween of my college career my roommate and I thought we needed to bring back the duo costumes! Since everyone loved it so much two years ago when we did it. 

(Head to the bottom of this post to see my costumes from the past few years)

We spent a lot of time trying to figure out what to be this year. Ever since we met when we were paired together to be roommates freshman year everyone has told us we are so similar. Twins even. Which brought about the idea that we should do an opposites duo costume this year!

Many ideas were thrown around. Many Pinterest boards were made. (Mostly on my end… I am obsessed with Pinterest) And then we settled upon it.

Fashion Student Picks my Outifts for a Week

For the blog this week I thought it would be fun to do a challenge. Way back in my sophomore year of High School this same friend wanted to dress me for a week. (I swear it was the week I got a compliment on my outfit every single day. Since I was wearing something other than a tee, flannel, or sweatshirt with my jeans.) Fast forward about 6 years and she is now a fashion student. So I thought it would be fun to have her try and dress me for a week again!

Thank you to everyone who has followed along with me on this journey of blogging. Now ONTO THE POST!

Today I am fiiiiinally getting around to reviewing The Princess Bride after I said I wanted to read it… during 2019. Better late than never though! I bought the book right before coming back to school this semester and finished it a few weeks ago.

If you didn’t know The Princess Bride movie was in fact a book first by the same man who wrote the screenplay William Goldman.

Visiting the Holden Arboretum

Autumn is here. It is cooling down. The sun is sticking around less and less and the last days of nice weather are passing us by. So it is imperative to take as much time as you can to do things outdoors before winter comes!

(For more Autumn themed posts check out Remembering October and 19 Halloween Movies To Watch)

Don’t get out your winter coats just yet, all you need is a sweater and you can spend the whole day outside exploring nature. Which is just what I did with my roommate this weekend.

I DIY a Utensil Pouch! and you can too

The story begins with a girl wanting to try her hand at learning a useful skill. As a typical movie plotline goes, it includes the fun beginning moments and excitement, and then goes headfirst into the downhill spiral that is the confrontation.

You know, the moments in the middle where hope seems lost and you aren’t quite sure how it will all turn out in the end.

In this case, the confrontation begins and ends with an evil antagonist known as the sewing machine, bent on the demise of our main character’s hopes, dreams, and patience.  

I am that girl. That was my sewing machine. And this is that story.

(Instructions on how I made the Utensil Pouch are at the bottom of this post!)
