I was at a yard sale in LA and found a kids sized Anaheim Angels jersey for $1.00 that inspired my costume this year.
I used the imPRESS press-on nails again. This time I remembered to prime my nails with the wipe and they stayed on all night.
DIY Baseball Player Costume
- I couldn't find red socks so I got red tights and wore them under my white capri pants that I already owned.
- I tied shoe laces around my feet before slipping on my wedges to make my shoes look sporty.
- I used red duct tape to make the stripe on my pants.
- I styled my hair in a messy french braid to go with the sporty look.
These our some pictures from Jamie and my 1920's "Speakeasy" style Birthday. Jamie picked this classic theme to celebrate our October birthdays this year. It was fun dressing up and we even did "The Charleston"!
Jamie and I made this decoration, we got really into the hand prints lol
Amanda made the perfect cake!
The Birthday Girls
Kevin made this photo of him teaching me how to Charleston :)
These are all the photo booth pictures I got at Kyle and Colleen's wedding. So fun!
Shop My Accessories:
*My shoes were a birthday gift from my dad's awesome girlfriend, Rita. Thanks so much! They are not sold online so I put a close match to them. They were inspired by the $3,000 shoes in this post: I want shoes that scare people.
*My bag was a birthday gift from my Aunt Donna and family. Thanks guys!
*My Tiffany's necklace is a look-a-like I found at a flea market.
*These imPRESS nails are great. I used them before but this time I forgot to use the little wipe they come with to prime your nails so they were falling off all night. Next time I'll remember the wipe!
This is what I wore to Kyle and Colleen's rehearsal dinner. It was a really fun night.

Since I am still in the temporary housing until Nov. 2nd I don't think I will be displaying any pumpkins this year but if I was, I would like to make one of these cute pumpkins:
Glittery Pumpkin Candle
I would like to hollow out a pumpkin, decorate it, and put my newest Yankee Candle that Amanda gave me for my birthday. It smells SO yummy!

Since I am flying back to LA today I thought it would be a good time to update you on what I'm reading. A Feast For Crows is the 4th book in the A Song of Ice and Fire series. Right now there are 5 books in the series but there is supposed to be 7 total eventually. I would highly recommend these books and if you like to watch TV, you can watch Game of Thrones on HBO. I have only seen the first episode of the TV show but I want to get caught up and start watching it.
My favorites from YouTube:
A Tiffany's Box
"Call Me Maybe"
And if you're short on time or money... be a Ninja
Comment below and let me know which one is your favorite and if you are dressing up this year what are you going to be?
