Hosting a Murder Mystery Party

Happy Halloween Eve! I hope you all get to celebrate Halloween tomorrow and enjoy the day. I’ll be watching Halloween movies, carving a pumpkin, and studying for an exam. Being in college, I have found Halloween more as an excuse to eat candy than to dress up, And because it falls during the week, I really don’t get to celebrate with friends because this grandma loves to be in bed before 11.

This year though, I decided that just because we’re older doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t dress up and play pretend. I decided to connect with the company My Mystery Party and they sent me a free game so that I could tell you all about it. In case you ever want to host your own murder mystery party, here’s everything you need to know! Continue reading “Hosting a Murder Mystery Party”

Fall Bucket List

Now that we are in the midst of October, I can completely submerge in everything Fall! I have still been using my planner religiously and each month at the end always has a notes page that I haven’t been using.

An idea that came to me was to use this back page as a place to write my monthly bucket list. So, naturally, because it is the month of October I decided to write down my Fall Bucket List. Continue reading “Fall Bucket List”

Detoxing from the Chaos

A couple weekends ago some friends and I packed up our bags and headed out into the woods. Holy. Crap. People! If you’ve been following my blog for a bit, you know I am all about fashion, pampering items, and you know, a bed. But I was inspired by my friends’ stories of sleeping in forests and hiking mountains, and a felt an urge of adventure.

Now I wasn’t about to pack up the car and drive to Colorado for the weekend. But, we rented out some camping ground and spent the weekend at a state park about a half hour from campus. This was perfect for me because I was super concerned about a good night sleep and bears (I know I’m in Iowa, but still!). By doing this, I took the time to step back from hectic everyday life.

My goal for you all is to become inspired by my leap out of my comfort zone and to find your own time to detach from the world. Continue reading “Detoxing from the Chaos”

Fall Fashion that Won’t Break the Bank

Depending on where you live, there are still some warm days left. If your home is anything like mine, some mornings are freezing and then the afternoons are sunny and steamy.

If that’s the case, sometimes finding the perfect outfit can be difficult. Fall fashion is all about layers, but if it’s just too warm that might not be possible. Check out the outfits I put together for those exact days. I linked everything below, and bonus, everything is under $50. Continue reading “Fall Fashion that Won’t Break the Bank”

My Fall Morning Routine

I asked you all on Instagram what kind of posts you all like reading, and after so many fashion posts thanks to the Fall 10×10, it seems like you’re ready for some lifestyle posts!

And I totally agree! Lifestyle posts are some of my favorites to read. I think it’s because I’m an openly nosy person, I love to read what people are up to. So today I am going to go through my typical morning routine. This doesn’t happen everyday, usually by Friday I’m sleeping in and not leaving the house until noon. But on average, this is what my mornings look like. Continue reading “My Fall Morning Routine”
