I’m in love with all of these fun Halloween costumes! Many are beach or tropical inspired and most would be very easy to pull off at the last minute. I’m not always the best at planning out my Halloween costumes in advance. (But I wish I was!) So sadly, I end up being one of those people running to the Halloween shop the night of and digging through the left over costumes. This year I’m going to try something a little different and DIY. Just not sure which one yet…
I use the term beach “cottage” lightly because this home is definitely on the larger side but still filled with effortless coastal style! I’m trying to decide between the master bedroom and the kitchen as my favorite room in this house. The kitchen is one of those gorgeous white kitchens that I could never be trusted in with a glass of red wine but still dream about none the less. While the master bedroom has a vaulted ceiling with its own private deck and one of those cute round windows! Take the tour:

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays! I think that’s because it’s one of the playful holidays. One thing that’s not on my list of favorite things to do is pumpkin carving. As much as I love the outcome, it’s pretty messy and my dog whines the entire time (I’m pretty sure he thinks I’m gorging myself on pumpkin without him!). So here’s my top 10 list for Halloween pumpkins for 2016. Most of these are no carve, technically they all are except there’s one that requires a drill. There are even some coastal pumpkin ideas for my fellow beach lovers!
This Palm Springs wedding includes two of my favorites things; the beach and succulents! Not to mention that this couple included their dog in the wedding❤ I love that! He even gets something special to wear to the occasion. Check out the details:
Plaid always feels so right for Fall but at the same time I don’t want to give up my stripes. What’s a girl to do? Combine favorites! Mixing and matching patterns for the perfect Fall outfit is a great way to wear your favorite pieces together. Take a look:
I love sangria! Sangria is usually thought of as a Summer cocktail but there’s so many ways to change it up for Fall. By swapping out some of the typical sangria fruits like melon and grapes with more in-season ones like cranberries and apples, you can really change up any sangria recipe. Take a look at this sangria recipe and you’ll be ready to go pumpkin picking in no time!
2 apples, cored and sliced
3/4 cup cranberries
2 pears, sliced
1 750mL bottle hard cider
1/2 cup bourbon
2 Tbsp Calvados or other apple brandy
1 cup ginger beer
Directions: Add to a large pitcher all the prepared fruit. Pour in the bourbon, calvados and ginger beer and stir. Slowly add the bottle of hard cider. Set in the fridge for 2 hours and serve. (If you’d prefer to preserve more carbonation, serve immediately or hold off on adding the hard cider until serving.)
