Fabulous Fall

Keep Calm and Enjoy #Fall, #autumn  #SmittenScrubs @Gina Gab Solórzano Rau Scrubs #nurse #nursing #healthcare #studentnurse #registerednurse #LPN #CNA #fashion #rocknroll #rockstar #trend #style

Time flies by and often we take each day for granted. I am doing my best to remind myself that every day and eveyr season is a gift, and that we should really enjoy each to their fullest. 

I will admit, of all the seasons, this is the one I liked the least; the only thing that made it somewhat tolerable was Halloween. Then I found these, and now, it is growing on me. 🙂

These images give me the warm and fuzzies. I forgot how much fun Fall can be.

What do I love about Fall? First and foremost I would say Halloween. Next in line would be the apple picking, pumpkin carving, warm apple cider or tall cups of hot chocolate, snuggling on chilly nights, watching the leaves turn from green, to red, to orange, candy apples, and so much more.

TaTa you hot, sticky, sweaty, smelly summer!!! Although i could leave off the halloween line, not that i hate it or anything...just not a huge fan of it, thats all. I like being chilly and having warm coffee and warm sweaters. Bring. On. The. Fall.

So what do you love about Fall?

How Do You Decorate?

Fall

We are quickly approaching the holiday gauntlet. For me this is how it goes…

  • Canadian Thanksgiving
  • Halloween
  • American Thanksgiving
  • Christmas
  • New Years

Sounds like fun right? Bonus…two Thanksgivings means two turkeys means double the YUMMY!!!!!. Take a moment to really soak in all that goodness. 

Hmmm... my motto for this year? :)

So here is my dilemma (every year). Just perusing that list, I often struggle with how to decorate. I want the pretty fall leaves with the spookiness of Halloween and the pilgrims representing Thanksgiving. Sounds easy right….WRONG! LOL! This is where Pinterest saves the day. Look at all these cute ideas that my just blend and work well together.

Halloween Party Decorations ..how cute!

Thanksgiving decor-  Is this your house, @Heather Creswell Creswell Creswell Creswell Creswell Creswell Sulikowski Saviano ?  I saw the 'H' on the pumpkin hehe ;)

Yes! I must make this!

Here is such a cute idea for pumpkins that can tie to Halloween. Fall, and Thanksgiving.

Pumpkins carved with a drill!

 

To be honest, I am slightly exhausted just thinking about it. But as the saying goes…”no rest for the wicked”…time to get my game face on and get this butt in gear. Speaking of game face…HOW AWESOME IS THIS LOOK??!!!

DAMN! I LOVE HALLOWEEN!


Warding Off The Winter Blues

I live in an area where winter lasts from October/November-ish to around May. That means bundling up, heavy boots and tons of layers. For those of you who do not live in a “winter wonderland”, you may picture it as follows….

Beautiful, right? This is an illusion.

Given our wacky temperature fluxes this is what tends to happen around this time of year. We get snow, then it melts, then some rain, then it freezes, then it melts again, another layer of snow….and after all that you end up having something more like this…

Everything feels muddy, cold, and dirty. UGH!!! This is the part I hate the most. This concoction of wintery sludge has a tendency to stick to you like glue. Forget wearing any cute shoes, those babies will be destroyed before you even get to your car.

The only thing that keeps me sane during these months is perusing spring fashions, makeup, etc. This does wonders for the winter blues and allows me to prep for spring. 😉

Since I have been wearing mostly greys and blacks to camouflage all any the sludge that gets on me, I find myself longing for colour. These outfits are super cute:

I absolutely love this look; the blue and bright green play off each other beautifully. Now, where would/could I ever wear this?? Hmmm, maybe in NYC, as I cross of the “Sex In The City Night” off my Bucket List.

What do you do to ward off the winter blues? Or for those of you that are  lucky enough to have summer all year round, what do you do to change it up?
