Happy HalloWEEK

The countdown has begun!
Officially one week until Halloween!


Like most kids, I loved Halloween growing up. I loved the idea of not only getting to play dress up, but also getting REWARDED for it with CANDY! What a sweet deal!

I'm going to try to make it over to my parents' house at some point this week to find old Halloween photos of myself to post for a good laugh. My mom was never great behind a camera though so we'll see what I'm able to find.

As far as my costume this year I'm still keeping it under wraps until it's unveiled because I'm so excited about it and want it to be a surprise. Only a select few know what I'm going to be. I still feel like I have a lot to do on it so we'll see how it turns out. I've been coming across some really great costume ideas and thought I'd share some of them with you. Enjoy :)

Mary Poppins and Bert

From Keiko Lynn

SUCH an adorable idea. The Mary Poppins costume is great but then having Bert really makes it. I'm not sure I could convince my boyfriend to do that but if I can, I definitely want to try this look eventually. Plus, he would look SO cute in that outfit.

Flo the Progressive Girl

From my obsession Kandee Johnson

I've always found these commercials funny and everyone knows who she is, so it'd be a really relevant costume. Plus, my best friend Danica was Geico money a few years back so it would just be funny.
(and that's me as Lady Gaga if you couldn't tell.)


Hot Air Balloon

From Babble

How cute is this?? It would definitely be hard to wear this to any sort of party (which was a problem Danica had in her Geico money costume), and it's definitely not going to be easy to transport, but I still love love love it. It's the kind of costume that you wear to a costume contest type of party.

Jellyfish

From The Craft Begins

Yet another very clever costume. Again, one that might be hard at parties but one that will definitely get noticed.

Candy Corn

From I'm Your Present

A very adorable and yet very simple costume. I'm not a candy corn fan but pretty much all of my friends LOVE it so I'm sure they'll enjoy this even more than me.

This ADORABLE Cat in the Hat & Green Eggs and Ham

From Dana Made It

My roommate Stefana (@StefanaCupcake) is pretty much OBSESSED with all things Dr.Seuss. I definitely thought of her when I saw these adorable costumes, and they're surprisingly easy.

Paper Doll Costume

From Lauren of Busy Bee Lauren

This is definitely something I can see myself doing. I love these kind of costumes. Not only is it very DIY but, growing up, I LOVED paper dolls. I got books upon books of paper dolls from my grandma, it would be a great nod to my childhood.

Last Wednesday Danica, Stefana, Marisa (the newest roommate) and I had a roommate (old and new) Halloween night. We carved pumpkins, watched Hocus Pocus and I made us some yummy apple cider cocktails. Who says carving pumpkins has to be for kids right? haha :)

Well, that's all for now, hope everyone has a great HalloWEEK!
