weekend! you dressing up and / or celebrating halloween? i guess we might be tonight, and believe it or not we’re going to be participating in a thriller flash mob with our hip hop class this weekend as well… yeah not joking. wish us luck or something.

my friends are getting together and seeing ouija on halloween but i am staying home to give out candy to trick or treaters. does that mean i’m old / boring / suburban now? i already saw ouija anyway and it was only just ok. anyway have a good weekend and be safe and have more fun than we will!

i was thinking this year i’d skip halloween posts. but then i realized i wanted some pumpkins outside for the trick or treaters so i might as well come up with something. and guess what — you can totally be festive while avoiding orange. and you might be surprised i even used a bright color like royal blue — but i’m currently into royal blue right now. i’m also into shapes (we know this). therefore i really like these. and they look so rad on our doorstep!  Read More

i don’t know about you, but i’m always on the hunt for pretty cat things because they’re few and far between. and all the classy looking cat stuff seems to cost way more than it should too, right? so i thought it would be nice to have a cute litter scooper!  Read More
