Tis the season for frights for some and comfy sweaters for all. So you’ve been invited to a Halloween party but you’re not sure what to wear? Well you’ve come to the right place! This year I am focusing on affordable ways to dress up once again with a twist called comfort. Many girls dress up to look skanky on Halloween, however, here I try to keep it classy without looking frumpy. Seeking some Halloween d.i.y. costumes? Don’t worry d.i.y.’s are definitely on there way, patience, starting Saturday will be the first Halloween d.i.y. of this season, for now enjoy the d.i.y ideas in this post.

Are you the creative one and him not so much? Would he feel tortured to walk around in a full blown costume made of itchy fabric and hours of your hard work? Try a onsie, he will love you even more for it! If you want to be pooh bear try a yellow dress with a cropped red top paired with d.i.y ears. He can be Eeyore to match plus you’ll both be able to reuse the outfits thoughout the year. Want to be Sally? This one is a little tough to diy so I would suggest heading to Hot Topic to pick up the costume dress which you can still rewear thoughout the year, if you’re a die heart fan. He can be Jack in comfort and style, who wants to really walk around with a giant skull head anyway.

Adulting always seems as if you’ll be jumping into this magical fairy tale where you get to paint the walls without permission. Then you get there and realize all the negatives that align with them such as figuring out how to afford all the paint.ha. I’ve learned a lot in a short window of time but budgeting has always been a part of me, it’s fun. A game you cannot afford to lose, quite literally.

A lot has changed in the past couple of months, including moving out for the first time. Needless to say it has been a little stressful at times. Now that I feel somewhat settled I thought it was time to update you all on why I dropped off the internet for a month.

Yes, I’m going to be completely stereotypical for this Father’s Day D.I.Y. only because this is something mine would actually use. No matter if you make this for dad or for yourself, it is very affordable. I came across this idea when I was searching for a tool roll store after store and kept coming out empty handed.

Why am I, a fashionista writing about cars? Good question, well since my website is about fashion as well as lifestyle, my goal is to be informative. This falls into the lifestyle aspect and I fear a lot of people overlook many details when purchasing a car. No, I am by far not an expert but with the help of some friends I have gained a grasp on car knowledge. It has become a confidence booster and to be honest fun to take charge of my exploration on vehicles. You should feel empowered to make this large purchase and not put your trust in the seller.

What a bitter sweet weekend coming up, augh!! The very last Avengers movie, I can not honestly believe the series will be over. To celebrate the finale I decided to make it extra special with a full on outfit and makeup inspired look. Lucky my sister is a bigger nerd than I am with Avenger movies so these were already in her shopping cart before coming up with this idea. As I am not as diehard of a fan as my sister, I will most likely be wearing one of the shirts or sweatshirts for the premiere.

Which character is your favorite in the series?
After my usual window shopping or shall I say internet browsing, I usually find something that is cute yet too expensive to justify purchasing. This happened to be one of those times, instead of just laughing and clicking out I thought why not try to make my own. At Alo Yoga this scrunchie is selling for $12.00 which is a bit pricy as it only includes one.
As a fellow crafty curly gal I decided to challenge myself by only using scrap material from previous projects. Next I realized that I really did not want to create a scrunchie as it seems a bit challenging plus I am not a fan of the scrunchie in the first place. Yes, this post is still titled diy knot scrunchies so I’ll explain, don’t worry. Instead of making a knot tie that was bound to one type of hair tie, why not create one that can be used on any type. I prefer invisibobbles which was my motivation for creating the tie for any preference.
Even though I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Fashion Design I still struggle with sewing. Needless to say this is definitely a beginner’s project, for all diy lovers. Since this is an easy level project I have included in the tutorial two examples. Also, learn how to fix major sewing mistakes and how to do it right the first time. Follow the tutorial below.
If you give this a try let me know in the comments or tag me in your creations on instagram. HAPPY CREATING!!
