Halloween_bloody_nails_main

With Halloween right around the corner, most people are just now deciding what costume to wear for costume parties and/or trick-or-treating with the kiddos. However, there are some of us who don’t have a reason to dress up, but would still like to participate in some way, small or large, in Halloween.

One of the ways I like participate in Halloween is with my nails. Usually, I use a bright orange and/or black, but that has become very boring over the years. Enter, nail art! One nail art design that has peaked my interest in the past couple of years is ‘bloody nails’. I’ve always wanted to try it, but never got around to trying it out. However, I’m ready this year.

Here are some polishes that will help you attain this look and design.

The look of “bloody nails” might be a little too gore for some, but there are couple ways you can try this trend that can be more cool than creepy. If you are interested in trying this or some other nail art designs for Halloween, you should check out my Pinterest board for Halloween nail art ideas.

ASOS_curve_lace_jacket

I promise, I’ve been eying this lace jacket from ASOS Curve for what feels like an eternity, but realistically a year. However, this is the year I’m going to finally order it, because I have a few outfits in my closet that would be perfectly tied together with the addition of this fab piece of wearable art.

SOUPURE_winter

Juicing was MAJOR the past couple of years and for good reasons. It was healthy, quick, and delicious. No to mention, perfectly chill for those hot days.

However, there is a new kid coming to town in the form in souping. Soupure is a new company that provides, soups, broths, and other warm and savory liquids that will be perfect for colder months. However, Soupure products can be sipped warm or cold.

Unfortunately, Soupure is currently only offered in L.A., but it is a start-up. So, I’m sure they are working to spread this genius idea.

Have you tried juicing? Are you interested in ‘souping’?

IllBeCa_Joy_Gryson_crossbod

Crossbody purses are always the rage for summer, because of their ease and carefree design that fits perfectly with lazy days of summer. However, in the fall and winter, purse trends are more structured and chic.

I’ve been obsessed with these crossbody bags by IllBeCa by Joy Gryson, because they combine the ease of a crossbody, but with a warm colors, chic design, and structured shilouette that compliments your warm fall wardrobe. Plus, they would make awesome gifts!

pumpkins_decor_fall_2014

No matter where you live in the USA, you have to have driven past countless pumpkin patches and stands in the past couple of weeks. I haven’t stopped by one, yet. However, that is going to change this weekend, because October seems to be steamrolling and Halloween is going to creep up…fast.

Although pumpkins are mostly known for creating jack-o-lanterns for Halloween and some of the best pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving, they have become staples in home decor for fall. Over the years, the use of a simple of pumpkin your porch is so blah and boring. Now, pumpkins are adorned with paints, fabrics, and jewels to create pieces of art. Some pumpkin decor is so ornate that they are almost too beautiful to throw away and replace.

In my opinion, some of the prettiest pumpkin designs don’t involve carving of any cutting. Instead, opting for basic supplies from most craft stores can add more design. A simple layer of paint and some metal studs and jewels can create gorgeous and fancy pumpkins. Also, wrapping a thin layer of lace can be just as appealing and simple.

One of my favorite designs and uses for pumpkins is when they are used for table centerpieces. I love when they are painted in neutral shades of cream, gold, and white. It’s a simple idea that looks chic and elegant.

When I was a child, I loved making and decorating jack-o-lanterns with my mom and brother. However, I would’ve equally loved, if not a  little more, to paint pumpkins in to fun cartoon characters. I know my brother would have been super amped to have a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle pumpkin. Character painted pumpkins would look nice mingled with simple pumpkins and jack-o-lanterns on your porch.

So, did you get any ideas for your fall pumpkin decor? If you want some more ideas, follow me on Pinterest. I created an entire board filled with more DIY pumpkin design ideas.
