Trick Or Sweet

 Happy Halloween!

I am so excited to finally share my Halloween costume with you this year. I even did a sneak peek post yesterday because I couldn't hold it in. I was berry excited, obviously. HA HA.

Tonight, I am putting on this DIY strawberry costume that I put together over Fall Break. After reading Studio DIY's blog on Halloween DIY costumes, I was pretty sold on this one (click to see how I created my DIY costume). I mean, how cute is this ice cream cone costume + this pineapple costume?! You can even find more costume ideas here!

As for tonight's plans, my favorite gal pals and I are hitting up Franklin Street in Chapel Hill. It's safe to say that my roommate / best friend and I are already in festivities mode. Not only did we have a girls movie night with hot apple cider + lots of blankets, but we also made apple-pie sangria and decorated our room for a few guests stopping by tonight. Speaking of, there's even a tutorial that I will share with you all on the apple-pie sangria, so stay tuned for that!

Fun fact: did you know that Halloween on Franklin Street is actually marked as #11 on the Greatest College Traditions? Yeah, it's pretty epic. Last year was a blast. It was incredible to see the entire street blocked off with people in the most creative costumes. I cannot wait for tonight!

Hope you all have a fun and safe Halloween!

Wearing: dress: Forever 21 (in black + white here) also, tried this one on and loved it (it's a bit heavier though!) | bracelet: Lily and Laura bracelets c/o 9th & Elm (30% off!) | 

Thanks for stopping by!

Keep Calm and Berry On

As I mentioned in my previous post about my Halloween costume {here}, I am berry berry excited to share my D-I-Y costume with you all tomorrow. And okaaay, I admit. I'm the worst at holding in secrets. I just had to spill the beans on my costume this year. 

 And... for good measure, I just wanted to throw in a little sneak peek (or two).
Be sure to stop by tomorrow for the entire look ;)

Orange Is The New Black

With the end of October and Halloween in two days, I have been anxiously staring at deadlines and upcoming events in the last two months of the year. Isn't that just crazy?! I cannot believe time has flown by this fast. 2014. is. almost. over.

But I'm getting ahead of myself. My favorite holiday and the greatest time of year is still two months away and my mind is definitely focused on what's going down this Friday ;)

It's All Fair And Games

On Friday night, my gal pal McKenzie (if you remember from this post here) and I took a little road trip to Raleigh to attend the N.C. State Fair. With exams out the way, we were really looking forward to a night out. We jammed to throwback music and took lots of car selfies (ha ha - I mean, car lighting is always the best) while we waited in the insane traffic that day. 

We arrived at sunset and I was lucky enough to capture this shot that I posted on Instagram here. We walked around for a couple of hours and decided to ride the high swings together, and... may or may not have screamed "Go Heels, Go America!" at the top of our lungs, haha! #noshame
From the delicious fair food aroma to the fun rides and a "tear"ful evening, I had a blast. 
Sometimes, you just need to spend time in a different atmosphere with people you care about, even if it is just for one night. It truly makes a difference!

Hope you all had a great weekend! Thanks for stopping by!
