Happy Halloween!

Hello there! Happy Halloween! The poor trick-or-treaters....two years ago we got hit with a major snowstorm, last year was Hurricane Sandy, and tonight it's raining! Well, so far it has been a light rain, hopefully it stays that way until they're done. On the plus side, it's quite warm out! So warm in fact that the heat is off in the apartment, and we have to have the window open and fan running!
I'm leaving work an hour early tomorrow, coming home, and then Bob and I are leaving to go to The Sands! (It's a hotel & casino.) We are celebrating our five year anniversary! It sounds like a long time, but, it also seems like it went pretty fast! I'm so excited to go away with him, even though it's only for a night. We'll be coming back Saturday night. We're going to do a lot on Saturday: go to the outlet stores at the casino, go to a mall, go to a book store, and stop at other outlets on the way back. I'm excited to go Christmas shopping for the first time this year! 
In the pictures below I'm wearing my new pair of flats! They arrived today, and I love them SO much. I got them on eBay, they are originally from Urban Outffiters. I had seen them on people's blogs and Instragram, and I had looked awhile ago for them on eBay, but didn't have luck. I happened to take a look on eBay last Sunday, and there was ONE pair, and in my size! I really lucked out. They fit perfectly, and I think they're adorable.

Red & Orange

Hello there! Yucky Monday is here, again. Of course, the work week is even harder to get through when I have a fun weekend planned! I'm not doing much tonight, just working out, reading, and watching some "Boardwalk Empire" with Bob. Tomorrow I'm getting two fillings done at the dentist...I'm dreading that! But, after that's done, my friend is coming over here, and I hope she's bringing her daughter with her, too.
In the pictures below I'm wearing a sweater that I have in three colours. I love this bright shade of red, and I love the cowl neck on the sweater as well. I got the bracelet at Target a year ago. It matches perfectly with my sweater and tank top! I really like the pairing of bright red and orange. The shoes I'm wearing, I hadn't worn since probably April. They're so comfortable and warm.

Candyland

Hello there! Today I'm not doing too much. It'll be a typical Sunday. Bob and I are just hanging at the apartment. I'm going to do some laundry and work out. Yesterday my mom and I had a great time going Christmas decoration shopping in Pennsylvania. She was very generous, and bought me a few items. At the first shop she bought me a gorgeous little hand made feather tree, and a handmade pumpkin. These items are pictured below. The people who run the shop have a workshop there too, and make all the items in it. They are very talented! 
She also bought me a couple Christmas ornaments. I actually only spent a dollar, when I bought a pumpkin beanie baby.
In the pictures below I'm wearing my Halloween costume. I hadn't bought a costume in five years. I really love this one! It's so perfect for me, since I love bright colours, and sweets! I wore it last night when Bob and I went to his friend's costume party. The only problem was, after a little while I had to put on my coat and keep it on, because his friend doesn't have heat! I even left the party early because I was so cold. 
The lollipop accessory I happened to find yesterday, at Party City. It looks like it came with the outfit, because they match so well! It was only $6, too. I can't wait to wear this outfit again. I'll be wearing it to work on Hallowen.
Bob was bad/hippie Santa again, ha. He's been that several other times. He carries around a trash bag full of little wrapped "gifts." The "gifts" are hilarious. Everyone gets a kick out of it! For example he wrapped hemorrhoid cream, enemas, pennies, etc. He hits up the clearance bin at Wal*mart. 
At least at the party I got to hang out with a tiny kitten for a little bit! His friend (the one who lived there) had recently gotten her. She was so adorable and sweet! I got to hold her, too. There's nothing cuter than kittens!

TGIF!

Hello there! Well, it's so lovely that the weekend has come around again. Bob is over his parent's house now, working on brewing a beer with his brother. I'm just staying in tonight. Bob and I are both getting up early tomorrow. He's working, and I'm going to Pennsylvania with my mom to go to some Christmas shops! My mom is VERY into Christmas. More so than anyone I've ever known, ha. I'm also quite into Christmas, and love decorating my apartment for it! But, my mom definitely takes the cake when it comes to decorating for it. In the pictures below I'm wearing a shirt I have in three colours. I love the rouching of it, I think it's flattering, and makes the shirt more interesting, than just a solid colour, plain top. I love wearing my printed dresses, but, it's also nice to sometimes wear outfits like this, and let my bright shoes and accessories really shine.

Ticket To Wednesday

Hello there! Well, hump day work day is all done with now, so that's some real progress with this week! I'm very much looking forward to next weekend, when Bob and I are going to The Sands hotel & casino to celebrate our five year anniversary! But, this weekend should be fun too. On Saturday I'm headed to some Christmas shops in PA with my mom, and then going to a Halloween costume party at night, where I'll be debuting my Candyland outfit!
In the pictures below I'm wearing a dress I've worn multiple times on my blog before. It's one of my very favourites! Of course one of the main reasons I love it so much is that is rainbow coloured. I paired it with brand new items. The heels came today, they're Nine West. The cropped cardigan I bought at Kohl's this weekend, and the necklace I received from Modcloth yesterday. After these last purchases I'm all done spending my birthday money!

Bright Blue/Lime

Hello there! In the pictures below I'm wearing a colour combo that I really love- bright blue and lime green. I don't wear this combo too often, because most of my wardrobe is pink/orange/red/yellow. I picked up this great lime tank top, as well as a bright orange tank top at Kohl's on Sunday. I don't usually see anything I like at Kohl's, but I was happy to score these two cheap tank tops, as well as two great cropped sweaters! I got one in red and one in black. I'm going to wear them all the time with my dresses. 
I really like this bright blue shirt, I love the draping of it. I think that makes it so flattering. I'm always looking for clothes to flatter me, since I'm larger on top than I am on bottom. 
I really LOVE the necklace I'm wearing in the below pictures. It's definitely one of my fav accessories. It was such a great find! I got it at Dillard's in Virginia Beach. It was on sale for $21. I've never seen that necklace anywhere else, and I was surprised Dillard's had it. It doesn't seem like the type of style they would normally sell. We don't have any Dillard's up near where I live. I remember first hearing about it because my aunt in Texas loves that store.
I found a Halloween Hello Kitty beanie baby at Walgreens on Sunday! (Pictured below.) I was glad to finally find one; I didn't have any Halloween Hello Kitties before. 
My Halloween costume came yesterday! I hadn't bought a costume in about five years. I'm not even sure where the one I was wearing the last few years went. But, I like my new costume much more anyway! It's so colorful and adorable. It's a Candyland dress. I can't wait to wear it and pair it with so many bright accessories.  :) It feels very "me."
