Happy Halloweeen

I am a sucker for Halloween. Fall is def one of my favorite times of year. I don't usually ever mind the end of summer especially since I am a socal resident. The weather stays beautiful and it means college football, Oktoberfest and my birthday! I love all the scary stuff and the decor. My birthday is in early November and my latin roots fuel my love of the Day of the Dead and all the beautiful art that accompanies the holiday. 

I found these charms too late to add them to my etsy store...maybe next year! I did scoop some up for me though:)

Halloween is very special because I come from a really big family and we've always done big holidays. It was always fun times with my cousins when I was younger and now it's an excuse to get dressed up and glammed up and go out with the girls. I've done the West Hollywood Parade and last year got to see the madness of a NYC parade. This year I had a low weekend. Went to grab a couple drinks with my girlfriend last night and tonight I cooked turkey chili and cornbread and handed out candy at my parent's house. Saw some fun costumes but this year I didn't really feel like putting much time/effort into a costume and crazy plans. Maybe next year!

verrrrry easy indian DIY costume...basically just cut up a sheet and shredded the edges & tied them together.

Glad I took this weekend easy.... now it's time to get ready for the month of November.... my best friend is moving back to LA and she'll be here this week. Going away for the weekend with my girlfriends for my bday. Either Vegas or Palm Springs and both will be in the upper 80s. Very excited to hit the pool! There are a lot of November babies in my group of friends so it's going to be a month of celebration. I also have a $450 jetblue credit to use by the end of the month. Where should I go?! I can't decide.

Hope everyone had a good holiday. Have a good work week! Excited, I already have Friday off. yay!
