DIY No-Carve Pumpkin

If you're like me, you love picking out pumpkins and decorating them for Halloween or fall. But not everyone doesn't like the part that comes next - figuring out how you're going to decorate it and then cleaning it out to carve. Personally, I love decorating pumpkins every which way but that it not for everybody. Last weekend while I was at the pumpkin patch (see this post on my visit and outfit), I grabbed a few extra so that I can show you guys some other ways to decorate your orange fruits (yes, pumpkins are fruits).

I love to paint, so obviously, my first no carve idea was to paint my pumpkin. But there are many ways to decorate your pumpkin without carving it! You can paint it, string stuff on it, put pushpins on it, monogram it, etch stuff on it, and I'm sure there's way more.

If you're late in the decorating pumpkin game like I am this year, you know that three days before Halloween is a terrible time to find pumpkins. The only ones out are gross. But after searching long and hard for some pretty ones, I found the pumpkin jackpot at Publix. They had some awesome large pumpkins at the front for only $6, but they also had an assortment of tiny pumpkins. I got a pack of 3 mini pumpkins for $5, and that is the orange pumpkin and black pumpkin you see below. I also got the cutest white pumpkin for only $1. Yeah, only one buckaroo - it doesn't get any better than that. They have lots of colors and sizes in pumpkins and gourds. So hit up your nearest Publix if you still need some cute decorations for the holidays.

Leopard and Maroon

Welcome back to the blog you guys! You might have noticed it looking a bit different, a new July font, and an awesome floral header. After a year, I figured it was finally time to get a new look, one that was more like me. I like this modern but still a little girly look. Let me know what you guys think!

Today's post is an awesome combination of fall colors. Maroon is my number one fall color this year, so I paired it with my my number one leather jacket. These jeans are the most comfortable and easiest to pair with anything jegging from Gap. They are their new Resolute Jean which has an elastic waist. At first, I thought an elastic waist was not for me, but after trying them on, I fell in love. I have always had a problem with the button of my jeans sticking out making it see-able through my shirt. But with these elastic waist, my problem disappears. So don't dismiss things you see in the store just because you think it won't look good on you or you think it's just for pregnant women - you might be surprised.
