pumpkin friday

Sam and I love Halloween. Every year we decorate our house with campy decorations and pass out candy on our front porch. This year we decided to make some pretty DIY pumpkins for the inside of our house. They’re more Pinterest and less campy than we usually do.

We invited over some friends and made a whole day of pumpkin crafts. 
My personal favorite is the pink drip candle which was created by melting crayons over a spray painted pumpkin. The other big favorite was the studded pumpkin made by my friend Emma. All the pumpkins were primed with white spray paint and all the stems were glittered (glue + glitter = magic).  
I made the glitter pumpkin by using spray adhesive and we used Sam’s acrylic paint to create the custom design of the blue pumpkin. 

It was a pretty epic day despite the fact that Sam  someone was an ex-art-student making fun of my clear lack of artistic ability and patience.

shimmer

I teamed up with Mary Kay to create a look inspired by one of the Project Runway finale makeup looks created by artist Luis Casco Green. I used the Beach Blonde Cream Eye Color and True Dimensions Lipstick in  Sassy Fuchsia to recreate the beachy vibe of the models. I love the shimmery shadow paired with the pretty pink lip. It feels young, fresh and effortless.

nostalgia

Sam and I are on a mission to fulfill our dream of owning and restoring an Airstream. We've been doing research and trying to gather as much information as possible. As part of the "research" we stayed in a cute Santa Barbara Airstream hotel. It was the perfect getaway to cement our goal. 
We had a chance to checkout different layouts and customization options, as well as get a realistic sense of how big of a trailer we'd want. We've narrowed it down do either a Bambi or the elusive Globetrotter made somewhere between 1945-1969, but at the end of the day we just want an Airstream of our own. 
There's something so intoxicating about the idea of the open road. At a time where many of my friends are buying houses and having babies, I have an urge to simplify my life and re-discover the world around me.  We all choose different roads to find fulfillment and maybe this is mine.

 Managed some light layering for a mildly cool day. Don't be surprised if you notice these shoes permanently glued to my feet. They're perfection.

iconic


When I think of an iconic rock 'n' roll look I always circle back to the likes of Bianca Jagger and her sophisticated take on a wild lifestyle. Her look was effortlessly cool and oozing with confidence. I decided to recreate her vibe for a night out with my boo. I mixed an elegant feather trimmed blazer with leather pants and a dark smokey eye finished off with Rimmel ScandelEyes Rockin' Curve Mascara. It was  a knockout look that even Sam couldn’t resist.
