My Life Lately via Instagram (Part 2)

8 Nov

Here’s the conclusion to me wrapping up the last three weeks of my life via instagram. You can follow me @heyitsrbr :)

My great grand little, me, and my grand little at our Halloween date dash, which took place at a spooky fairground and haunted house!

Halloween weekend was also celebrated by attending the Arizona vs. USC game where we won with a major upset!!

There was a lot of pumpkin carving this month, and this free-handed (by one of my friends) Mickey Mouse was my favorite!

Our Sorority Chef really got into the Halloween spirit with homemade caramel apples. Our house mom and house dog even came in costume to Halloween chapter :)

This past weekend I attended my first Arizona hockey game of the season. We lost at the very end but it was a great game. Since it was a white out game, I knew I had to wear my white monogram hair bow from Dixieland Monogram!

What have you been up to so far this month?

Halloweekend!

31 Oct

One sake bomb date dash, one chill night with friends, one day of baking and domestic autumn festivities with my sisters, one annual fraternity Boo Bash, and an entire day of homework later, I’m alive…. and prepared for actual Halloween! Here’s a little weekend in pictures recap… lots of DIYs and recipes to come this week! (Oh ps… It’s homecoming week which means an entire 7 days of mixers, date dashes, dinner exchanges, and football- can’t wait to share it all with you!!)

Cheap and Easy Halloween Costumes

5 Oct

It seems like I start every post with an apology recently, but I feel so guilty and neglectful whenever I fail to update my blog in a timely manner. School really is kicking my butt this semester. But all of a sudden I looked around and realized it was October. And that means Halloween! And costumes, and candy!! So the great debate, of course, is what am I going to be….. I’m not trying to spend a gazillion dollars this month, so here are some ideas I’m considering from shopping my own closet:

halloween 1

All you need to be a fabulous kitten is a pair of black leggings, black top, black ballet flats, and some ears! I think black fingerless gloves would give this idea some extra meow!

halloween 2

I’m thinking a pretty turquoise t-shirt dress from american apparel and some strategically crafted peacock feathers would make for one cute bird.

halloween 3

Just add red lipstick and a black tank top, lace skirt, pearls, fishnets, and feathers are all you need to dance away the night at a speakeasy. Jazz and bootleggers optional.

What other costumes are easy to create with existing pieces? What are you going to be for Halloween? I’m always on the lookout for more ideas!

Bisous,

Rachel
