Wouldn't a white pumpkin vase be a pretty hostess gift?

Jeweled Skull DIY

My favorite way to decorate for Halloween is to go with my movie prop approach: anything goes as long as it could be a prop for a scary movie. Things that could be in a real haunted mansion or a run down cemetery or a spooky forest.
But I also enjoy a little glam, especially if it's for a party!

This Jeweled Skull DIY is soooo easy and quick. It took me about 10 minutes to make, and about an hour to dry. All you need is a prop skull, jewels (I used pearls in two colors and three sizes), and some clear-drying glue.

Fill one eye socket with jewels and glue them down. Splay a few more across the face however you like, and add a few more in the opposite eye. Remember to use the rule of odds--stack your jewels in groups of 1, 3, 5, etc. Something to do with nature and ratio...

This is a great Halloween decoration, especially with you throw extra beads around. It's also good for a pirate party or to celebrate La Dia de los Muertos!

I love this trend

Dip-dyed furniture. I love the clean lines of it. It makes me want to remove the carpet in my apartment, lay down wood, paint it white, and then dip-dye my furniture.

Can anyone tell me how to keep things (like my couch and chair and bedding) white? Whilst living with a little black cat? And a boy?

What I Wore: Fall Style

Wow. It has been a long time since I have posted about my outfit. I mean, let's be honest; my outfits all summer have been yoga clothes and mumus, so....
Outfit details: Black Dress: Tresics (TJ Maxx, baby!), Skirt: Emerging Thoughts, Ballet Flats: H&M, Necklace: Handmade by Mom!

This skirt is by Dainty June for Emerging Thoughts--awhile ago I ordered a mystery grab bag and was delighted to receive the skirt and this dress. I love surprises!

Okay, since we're being honest, you should know that I never iron out the wrinkles in my clothes. I just photoshop them out. So....

Fall Recipe Round-Up

Happy October! I'm not going to lie, this is about when I start getting very, very excited about holidays. And while there apparently is no Autumn in Los Angeles, I will still be enjoying pumpkin until they tell me to stop!

Here are some of my favorite fall recipes from last year:
1. This dreamy pumpkin smoothie is so yummy (and perfect if you, too, are still experiencing hot weather!)
2. Warm up your mornings with yummy coconut oatmeal!
3. Buckwheat Pumpkin Pancakes topped with Agave & Earth Balance--these are seriously good.
4. Pumpkin muffins with chocolate morsels? Yes. Yes yes yes.
5. This Autumn Punch recipe is perfect for romantic dinners or visiting with friends. Enjoy!
