Cutest Pumpkins in the Patch

Cutest Pumpkins in the Patch

As we are now stumbling onto the halfway mark of October, I decided its time to drag my adorable boyfriend along to do insanely ridiculous fall stuff. This means pumpkin patches, hiking, carving pumpkins, and maybe even picking apples if we get the opportunity. This past weekend we revisited a little pumpkin patch area, took plenty of pictures, and I wore a pretty cute outfit that I wanted to share with all of you.

As you arrive at Ellis Pottery in Longview, TX, you will be greeted by this giant friendly pumpkin, (just in case you thought you were in the wrong place).

Pumpkins literally lined the entire property. I would NOT want to work in that farm. I love pumpkins,  but there is no way I’m washing all these bad boys. No thank you. Whoever took the time to make sure pumpkins were everywhere you could see, they did a fantastic job. I was pleasantly surprised by this place. Definitely put me in the fall mood.

Dakota and I had a great time here. There was a little walk way that was soooo spooky, decorated with cute Halloween decor. String lights hung all around the path, which I bet would’ve been super romantic at night. Pumpkin towers stood in random places, and if there were ever a place to have a fall photo shoot, this would be it. Maybe there will be a new lookbook or something coming out for y’all………we’ll have to see.

Besides the pumpkins, there was also plenty of flowers. They had annuals, semi-annuals, succulents, you name it. I wanted to pick me up a few but decided that my wallet deserved a much needed break. The colors and smells of this place were really something special. Such a cool little spot in our tiny neck of the woods.



These little guys had to be the most perfect pieces of nature I’ve ever seen. How is it possible to grow something that looks right off a dictionary picture? Now there were obviously plenty of perfect pumpkins, but I’m pretty sure Dakota and I were the cutest throughout the entire patch.

As far as my outfit goes, I wore a plain black T-shirt (my boyfriend’s), and some burnt orange jeans (from La’Patricia), which y’all should already know is my favorite color, and my staple black booties (JCPenny’s). An outfit like this one, that is inclusive of fall colors, is such an easy way to feel festive and trendy without going all out.

I had an absolutely amazing time here at Ellis Pottery. It was a great day we’ll never forget, and if you ever have an opportunity to go to a place like this one, definitely go. Having fun adventures such as this one makes me excited to see what else the season has in store for us.

 

Until next time,

 

Double Ipsy Unboxing 

Last month I didn’t do an Ipsy unboxing because I was taking a little break, but when I came back around, I figured I’d wait to do a double. So today, I will be showing you two separate packages I received from my Ipsy subscription, one from last month and the one for this month. I’m not sure if I have a favorite out of the two, but I do know I got a LOAD of good stuff. And I got a little surprise for y’all at the end. 


Last month:

As always I’ll start with the bag. When I reached in and discovered this bag I instantly smiled. I think it’s really cute, the glitter is adorable, and I love the colors. I think the shape of this bag is really unique and although there is no use for it right now, I believe I will definitely find a way to utilize it. 

The first product I looked at was this facial cleanser. Y’all know how I am about my face. However, everything I’ve gotten from Ipsy that was skin care related as so far been a success. I’m excited to try this out because it’s an exfoliating cleanser, so I hope it will help me get rid of a few trouble spots. Also, it smells like honey. I don’t know if I told you this but over the summer my scent was vanilla. Perfume, lotion, leave in conditioner, everything smelled like vanilla. For the fall though, I’ve slowly been changing it to honey. Ipsy reads my mind every time. 

Recently, I’ve revamped my love affair with eyeliner. Eyeliner is like an occasional thing for me. It mostly has to do with how much work goes into it. Personally, for one eyeliner look, I use 3 completely different types of eyeliners. 3! I have a gel pencil for my waterline, a stiff pen for my lids, and a brush for my wings. Writing this now I’m realizing how insane it sounds. Anyways, I’m hoping this Steve Laurant eyeliner will come through for me. 

All my Ipsy items have the cutest packaging ever. I can never tell what it is though. 

Here we are with another nail polish. Just like eyeliner, I’ve also recently gotten back into doing my nails. Although I love this cloudy purple, it is not fall-enough so unfortunately I will not be wearing this any time soon. It will be beautiful in the winter and spring time, but for right now, it will remain untouched. 

How adorable is this? It’s like a tiny little matchbook. 

But surprise!! It’s just the same old champagne color as per usual. “Shadow/luminator” yeah, yeah we know. I have soooooo many of these exact shades, I just don’t bother anymore. 

Now THIS though. I pulled this out and was blown away. I’ve heard of Make Up Forever, but never had a chance to buy any products. So finding this was a nice surprise. I love how sleek the bottle is. I could keep this with me all the time. 

This month:

Studs? Really, studs? I may be totally grunge. I may be into vintage. But I am NOT reviving gothic stud culture. I just can’t. I mean it is pretty cute I love the black. OKAY, I’LL USE IT!!

I assume this is a face mask. It says mask on it and that’s what it seems like to me. I like face masks, wait let me rephrase that: I like the IDEA of face masks. Face masks give the sense of “I have nothing more important to do than sit here and take care of my skin”. I ventured down the Pore Minimizing mask route a few times, which if you go deep enough in my archives you’ll find it. I wish I had that sense of relaxation. I’m getting there. Slowly. Maybe I can use this while I do other things. Hopefully, this and the exfoliating cream I got will work well together. Maybe soon I’ll have a full new skincare routine to show you. 

Brushes!!!! I love brushes!!! This brush is perfect. I need all the eyeshadow brushes I can get. Building up my makeup brush collection has been really fun. I feel like I have one from nearly every brand now. This little pink and copper one will fit in my collection just fine. 

Poppable, portable eyeshadow. That’s something I could get behind. I like the thought of this product, however, I hate single shadows. I could totally recommend this to someone else, but for me, I love palettes. 

COLOURPOP! This is not a drill. COLOURPOP PRODUCT HERE GUYS. I have been dying to get something from Colourpop foreverrrrrrrr. And here it is. In my hands. 

I bought a little eyebrow duo like this from Revlon I think, not too long ago. These little nifty guys are my favorite way to do my eyebrows by far. I’m glad I got this one because once my Revlon one is all gone, I can easily just switch over. Definitely excited to try this bad boy out. 

I really like this. I love the packaging and to me, the colors of this blush are great for fall. There’s a more maroon pink and an orangish warm highlight. I’m impressed. You could easily swirl these two colors together, swipe it on your cheek, and Wah-Bam! Fall glam. And check it out:

Peach honey. Honey, honey, honey. It’s like it was destined to be. Super excited to get try this out. 

And for that surprise:

I wanted to put a few of these to the test and show y’all the look I came up with. For this look I used the LUXIE brush, and it worked like a dream. It made it so easy to work with the All Star (purple) shade from my ABH Subculture palette. I also tried out the Colourpop Boss Brow, and I must say the spoolie doesn’t play around. It kind of hurt lol, but nothing to complain about. I love how it filled my brows in. I definitely need to get them shaped up. Next I used the Laurant eyeliner pen and it was much more stiff than I had anticipated. It is a very durable matte black, and it would be perfect for people who like to do tiny wings. I wouldn’t recommend it for someone who is new at doing makeup because I had a pretty hard time with it. However, I think with some more use, I can really get the hang of it, which will make it perfect for everyday looks. Lastly, I tried out the Make Up Forever mascara. If you love natural looking lashes, this is the mascara for you. If you’re someone who prefers falsies, stay far far away. I put it on, and on any other given day when I wear my nuetrals, it would’ve been great. But since I was being adventurous with these colors, it just didn’t do enough for me. So I went back in with my Better Than Sex mascara to finish off this look. The lip is my Kat Von D liquid matte lipstick in the shade Lolita  (thanks Hailey). 

I hope you all enjoyed this post! I love Ipsy so much. Give them a try if you haven’t already. 

Until next time,

Fall Haul (Pt. 2)

Everyone, I have a confession to make. I am a shopaholic. 

I know. Who would’ve guessed? Well, probably my boyfriend. 

Last Monday I showed you some new pieces I bought over the weekend. Wednesday I showed you some looks from a new eyeshadow palette I got. And Friday I was sick… but here we are Monday and as promised, I have Part 2 of my Fall Haul ready to go for y’all. Brace yourself. This is one of my best shoots yet. 

This haul was created to highlight the new items I bought from Forever 21. Unfortunately, this post is not sponsored. 

Starry Day:

Yellow, we meet again. And I see you brought your old pals mom jeans and ankle booties. How clever of you. 

This color yellow is a more vibrant hue than I would normally shoot for. But as soon as I laid eyes on it, I fell for the stars. It was unique. It was dramatic. And it’s super soft. 

The purple boots balance this look perfectly. This is an ideal example of how contrasting colors can really bring an outfit together. The top and the jeans are both from Forever 21. I’m back on my high waisted craze. 

Queen B:

Queen of damn near everything and it’s about time y’all recognize. You all saw this killer crop top in my last Haul post because I just got it. I saw the fishnets online and immediately thought of this top and thus the outfit was born. 

Fishnets were really trending starting in the spring, and over the summer. However, I’m FINALLY jumping on the band wagon, just as everyone else is hopping off. I do not mind that at all. The fishnets look so good under these jeans, the crop top lets them peep through on my midsection, and your girl slays. As usual. 

This look totally gives me 90’s grunge mixed with modern high end style vibes. It’s the fishnets combined with the GUCCI rip off and the heels that do the trick. I’m in awe. This was definitely one of my favorite outfits. 

As the weather slowly changes from scorching hot to mildly chilling, a look like this is perfect to transfer from day to night. The crop top is not too much, the jeans are loose fitting, and the entire fit is comfy. Ahhhhhhh!!! I need more cropped hoodies!

Vintage Babe:

Vintage has never been a style I go for. It just wasn’t anything I was into. I loved grunge and girly things in high school, but slowly I find myself bouncing between vintage and streetwear looks, or mix matching the two. For the look above, I kept the fishnets on, changed into my HUF shirt that I also got last weekend, and changed my jeans….

LOOK AT THESE JEANS!!! You can see from my face how comfy they are. They’re two toned, the left leg being the medium wash and the right leg being the light wash. I admire these jeans. 

The reason this look reads as vintage is because I get the vision of a mom taking two completely different colored jeans, having to sew them together and hand them down for their kid. I love it. A piece like this would usually be completely out of my comfort zone, but I’m into it. 

If pants aren’t your thing, F21 has a skirt and I believe a jacket version just like these. I hope these become a major trend. Go get your piece for they’re all gone. 

Moto Baddie:

I am warning y’all right now, do not sleep on me this season. 

Red and yellow are calling my name, but burnt orange will always be my fave. The jacket, the jeans, the boots, I got it all honey. You need it too. 

The jacket is the Red Moto jacket from Forever 21. Every girl deserves a nice faux leather jacket, and while it used to be that black was the staple, I am living for this red one. Dare to stand out my ladies. 

I used my hand painted boots to bring this look together. If you love these booties as much as me, fear not, they will soon be up for sale on my Depop. I got you covered, don’t worry. 

Thank you for reading. I hope you loved this post as much as I loved putting it together for y’all. Shoutout to Cassidy for taking these super awesome photos for me. 

If you’re enjoying these hauls/ mini lookbooks, let me know. They’re one of my favorite things to do. Let these looks inspire you this season. I’d love to see any recreations you come up with. 

Until next time,
