Halloween Ideas

Halloween is by far one of my favorite holidays. We have an excuse to eat buckets of candy, attend parties and wear multiple costumes within a few days. As I have gotten older my taste in costumes have as well. When I was a kid I would go all out in scary make-up and witch hats, as a teenager I would find the shortest costume as possible and now being that I am 20, I’ve started to head down the classy costume road. A possibility that my boyfriend and I are toying with is being the stylish duo, Bonnie & Clyde. The mixing of style and crime is the perfect combination for a successful Halloween.

A Brighter Future

This hasn’t been the best of weeks and it’s only Wednesday. Being overwhelmed with schoolwork mixed with sleep deprivation and thoughts of Halloween have left me feeling in somewhat of a chaotic daze. If it wasn’t for the sunshine and my closet I would definitely be in bed all day feeling unmotivated. I’ve tried to make the best of the school situation that I am in, by balancing out my work that has to be done and playing dress up in between to keep me as sane as humanly possible. Being that I have hours and hours of work ahead of me I decided to throw on this comfortable yet put together look and give myself a break, by gazing out my window at a brighter future.
