happy halloween! {family halloween costume idea}

Now, we all know I’m a huge holiday enthusiast (to put it extremely, extremely lightly), but Halloween has never been high up on my list as far as important days go. I don’t watch scary movies, I cry the second I step into a haunted house, and my Halloween night plans are generally very anti-climactic. […]

oh, autumn : bucket list update

Every season I like to make a list – a bucket list of sorts. I live for celebrating the every day and holidays alike, and this way I can stay on track and squeeze in as much seasonal goodness as possible. This autumn I’ve been making some major headway on my list, and it’s filling […]

celebrating community

After a busy weekend of Halloween festivities, we wanted to keep Halloween night as relaxed as possible. With the cooler weather finally sweeping in (!!), we decided to grab some seasonal coffees and walk through a nearby neighborhood with Kipling (tutu on of course) to see all the decorated houses and trick-or-treaters. Honestly, it made me […]

a stranger halloween

With Halloween on a Monday, it’s been a LONG weekend of celebrating. We have an office costume party today, but we’ll be keeping it nice and relaxed this evening with some homemade popcorn and a (non-scary) movie. I knew everyone and their mom would dress up as Stranger Things characters this year, but once I […]

that 70s show (halloween)

The day after I shared my love for the 90s, I coincidentally had an audition for a show set in the 1970s. I then immediately realized how much I love the style of this decade too (like a good pair of flares) and have been trying to convince myself for a couple years now that I do not […]

scenes of october

It’s no secret that I live for this time of year. What with the succession of holidays, and the shorter days, it gives you every excuse to celebrate and really appreciate the little things in life. Everything nice and slow. I like to take this time of year to step back, practice living intentionally, and notice […]

oh, autumn : bucket list

Try as I might, I can’t contain my excitement for autumn and the subsequent holiday season. Everything about this time of year just makes me so giddy inside. I will continue to mourn LA’s lack of fall weather and foliage (though I am feeling a “chill” in the air), but that will not stop me […]

belated halloween

OH MY GOD IT’S COLD OUTSIDE!!! Guys, if there’s anything that can affect my mood, it’s the weather (and food, if I’m being honest). And this week (albeit a little late for my liking), the weather has cooled off. As in I have to wear a jacket! All my dreams are coming true. I shared […]

october

As much as I love the summer, the heat wave this year was brutal. Fall couldn’t come soon enough, and though it hasn’t been consistent (the sun came guns blazing Halloween day), I think cooler temperatures have generally come to stay. As with every season, I’ve tried to relish it as much as I can. A […]

autumn in LA

Well, autumn is here (that’s what my calendar says anyway). I’m still holding out for those cooler temps and colored leaves, but gosh darn it if I won’t celebrate like we actually have seasons in Los Angeles. I love the summertime but am always ready for a change of season when fall creeps around – […]
