Dressing up for Halloween is so fun but dressing up with a friend, boyfriend, girlfriend, etc, is even MORE fun! I love coordinating costumes with friends and going as a crime fighting team or as gnomies (that would be lawn gnomes who are homies)! Below are a few easy costumes I put together for you to wear with another person.
Batman & Robin / Lawn Gnomes aka GNOMIES / Minnie & Mickey Mouse / Wayne & Garth from Waynes World /
There are SO many options for Halloween! I prefer making or creating a costume as oppose to purchasing, but purchasing is still a great idea! If you're stuck for a costume and want to get your creative juices flowing, hit up Pintrest (click here) for some ideas.
It's the most fun to dress up as a group with lots of friends! That may be my post for tomorrow!
It's Halloween week and I'm feeling festive!
It was my friends birthday this past Friday and I wanted to get creative with her present. I had read about DIY Mugs on Pintrest but never felt I could do them since I'm not overly crafty but I decided to just go for it! Of course I did these a few days in advance in case they didn't work and I had to get her something else.
I was pleasantly surprised how easy they were! All you need is a white mug, although I'm sure you could use a coloured mug, and a black sharpie (I read that coloured sharpies fade) and the use of an oven. Here are the steps I took:
1. Wash and dry mug.
2. Draw on mug with marker.
3. Place your mug in the oven. Once mugs are in the oven turn the temperature to 400 degrees. By putting them in cold and allowing them to heat prevents any cracking.
4. Wait 30-40 minutes! After this time turn your oven off and leave your mug in. By leaving it in it allows the mug to completely cool. which prevents cracking.
5. When COMPLETELY cooled take out of the oven and wash. If you need to do any touchups do them now, then place the mug back in the oven and follow steps 2-5 again. If you don't need touch ups then I suggest making a cup of tea and getting some use out of your mug!
This is such an easy project! I did read that there are special markers you could use that are coloured and the colour doesn't fade. I don't know what they are or where I could have found them but I'm assuming they're available at craft stores, like Micheals.
These are great for gifts because you can personalize them and they aren't overly expensive! If I can do this then anyone can!
Every year at precisely this time people start freaking out because they can't decide what to be for Halloween! Halloween is quite possibly the most fun night of the year. The creative juices start flowing, candy is on sale, there are parties galore and you get to wear a totally awesome costume! For todays post I thought I'd throw together some easy halloween costumes for anyone who wasn't sure what to be!
I'm not one to buy a pre-made costume but there is absolutely nothing wrong with it. I love getting all the pieces together and creating something, and that means going to second hand stores, costume shops and craft stores! I love the process of making a costume regardless of how simple it may be. So, these four costumes are so easy to put together and it's likely you would have a lot of the items needed. I created all of these costumes on Polyvore, which is one of my favourite sites! There are also thousands of ideas on Pintrest.
I can't say what I'm being for Halloween but I will say I'm so excited!
Hello there! Welcome to my blog!
I'm Bhreagh, a twenty-something living in beautiful Halifax, Nova Scotia. When I'm not creating awkward situations, shoe shopping or waiting for my letter from Hogwarts you can usually find me cruising clothing websites scoping out new fashions & deals or shopping at my favourite store- Sephora! I grew up a tomboy, so this blog is about my transformation into a girl, and the awful awkward moments along the way.
I'm still learning about this thing called "beauty" & "fashion", but I've mastered some great tricks and know what works for my body shape!
Please browse & enjoy!
Also, come back soon to see some new material :)
