Life Lately + A Creep-tastic October Playlist

Hi friends! We've got a lot to catch up on this month! I'm sharing a little of what I've been up to and if you get all the way to the bottom I've got some of my favorite spooky songs, perfect for getting you into the Halloween spirit this weekend!

As always, feel free to share a few of your own answers to these prompts in the comments. I love to hear about your lives! :)

So here's a look at my world lately...


Dreaming about what creative projects to tackle next. October is always a crazy busy month for me and now that it's wrapping up, all the creative possibilities that come with having some free time are shining like bright beacons of hope. You all know I love a good project, prompt calendar, Instagram challenge, etc. Do you take part in any that you love? I'd love to hear what you brilliant people are up to these days! :)

Watching Halloween themed shows and movies! It's seriously my favorite time of year. Do you have an all-time favorite Halloween movie? Mine is definitely Hocus Pocus. In a dream world my sisters and I will one day be the Sanderson sisters for Halloween. Check out how awesome these girls were at Highball last weekend. I loved their commitment to character-appropriate facial expressions!

Reading Judd Apatow's Sick in the Head. Have you read it yet? You can check out my review of this and a few others in November's Book Report next week!

Feeling relieved and proud now that Highball is over. For those of you that aren't Columbus-based, Highball is this big Halloween event in our arts district. For part of the event, local designers compete in a Costume Couture competition where we all show a full collection of "ready-to-wear" looks (with a costume spin, of course) with the pièce de résistance being a larger-than-life costume that ties everything together. Our collection was bug inspired and the costume was an other-worldly tree goddess that featured a rainbow of bugs crawling up the trunk. We placed 3rd overall and I was very excited for Bryston Walters, a super talented local designer, for taking home the 1st place prize. He showed a Cleopatra-inspired collection that really wowed the audience.


(More collection looks, details, and behind-the-scene pics can be seen on Instagram.)

Eating at Acre! Columbus-area readers, if you haven't tried this place yet, go! It is ssooooo good! There are so many options for all dietary restrictions and everything just looks so bright, fresh, and wholesome. In my opinion, this is just how food should taste.


Working on sleeeep! Well catching up on it this week, I should say. Also catching up on housework and reorganizing all the things that got out of whack during my hectic month. My new favorite thing is listening to podcasts while cleaning. It really puts me in a zone and helps me forget that I don't like cleaning at all. :)

Wearing my new haircut! I went blonder and shorter than ever before and I'm loving it! To really get the look I'm going for I have to fake that I have much thicker and much darker eyebrows than I actually do. Cue my new favorite product, Anastasia's Dipbrow Pomade. If you have any eyebrow qualms, this, my friends, is the answer.


Planning on spray painting our patio table and chairs this weekend. I was so in love with our ombre rainbow bugs from Highball that I'm considering doing a bold rainbow ombre on the furniture. I've been super inspired by this, this, and these on Pinterest. What do you think? Too crazy or just crazy enough?

Listening to this Creeps Only playlist I made on Spotify. It has my favorite spooky songs and some classic Halloween jams to get you in the bewitching spirit tomorrow!




What are you favorite songs to get you in the Halloween spirit?

Creep it real! ;)
