Hello, everyone! Halloween is right around the corner (as in this Saturday) and I'm sure a lot us procrastinators have yet to get a costume together.  I will never make the mistake of paying $100 dollars for a costume at Halloween Express ever again. Its just silly to pay that much for something you're going to wear for only a few hours. Plus, the homemade ones are so much cuter, unique and you barely have to invest any money into them!  I think its a possibility that I might have been hungry while making this post considering 8/10 of these costumes are food?  Oops.  Food makes for cute costumes, I guess!  If you still haven't figured out what you're wearing for Halloween I hope one of these costumes will help you out.  They all look fairly easy to make and guaranteed to be a lot easier on the bank account.  Let me know in the comments your favorite costume & what your plans are for Halloween.  Have a good day & thanks for stopping by!

Hello, guys! Lately I've really been wanting to redesign my room so I figured I would share some of my favorite bedrooms that I've found while browsing Pinterest lately.  I am all about some chic & feminine decor with shades of white, creams, baby pinks and pastels.  I'm going to go ahead and say sorry to whoever I marry someday who is gonna have to deal with the fact that our entire house is going to look super girly & feminine.  I just love a bright room.  I hope this post inspires you to revamp your space.  Sometimes a little change is all that you need to up your productivity levels & feel goal oriented again.  Hit up Home Goods and get to work! 

I want to thank everyone who has e-mailed, Facebook messaged & direct messaged me on Instagram.  I appreciate your kind words and encouragement so, so much.  Knowing that you all enjoy my blog makes me want to put even more effort into it and post things that you all will enjoy reading.  I've even had several guys that love it & have said such encouraging things.  So, thank you, thank you, thank you! Seriously. It means the world.  Thank you all for reading & happy Monday!

xoxo, 

Brooke

Chic Design




Hello, guys! Sorry I have been like MIA with posting outfits lately but I've had tons going on and have been super busy so I hope you all will just hang with me.  As some of you are probably wondering that have me on Instagram, I found Mia a new home today so I've been kind of down about it.  I never knew how much responsibility a puppy was and as a 23 year old, my life is just too busy to properly be able to take care of one.  It does suck and I am sad but I know she has a good home and will be well taken care of.  Enough of the sad stuff.  You all know I'm obsessed with interior design so since I've been too busy to take pictures, I put this together to hopefully give you all some interior design inspiration.  So obsessed with all of these pieces.  I will be back to posting outfits ASAP so just hang with me.  Its been a crazy week but its almost the weekend (YAY) and I think we can all appreciate that. All pieces are linked.  Let me know in the comments if this inspires you to give your home a makeover. Have good weekend guys!

Fall Must-Haves



  

Hello, everyone! I hope you are all doing well. I put together some of my favorite Fall essentials.  These J Crew quilted vests will never get old & they're timeless.  They are a little on the expensive side but they're definitely worth the money and such good quality.  I am a firm believer in you get what you pay for and some things are just worth the splurge.  I also linked this gorgeous Steve Madden quilted cross-body.  These are perfect for the Fall & Winter time.  I hope you all enjoy this post.  If you all have any ideas or need any help putting an outfit together for any type of event, feel free to e-mail me /comment below and let me know.  All items are linked to the icons.  Talk to you all soon!

Top 10 Things To Do This Fall

Saturday, October 17, 2015



Happy Saturday! Today I'm bringing you 10 things you should definitely think about doing before Fall comes to an end.  You really don't know how lucky you are if you live somewhere that has a Fall season.  Just know that I am extremely jealous of you right now. Considering Florida basically has no Fall, I have really been missing Fall time in Kentucky like crazy this year.  It has always been my favorite and I love every single little thing about it from the leaves changing to the crisp smell of it in the air.  When I was a little girl my dad always told me, "You only get to see the leaves change only so many times in your lifetime like everything else, so look around and appreciate how beautiful they are."  These are some of my favorite things to do in the Fall that I really miss doing with my family.  


1. Go for a hayride.  Every year my dad always hooked up a wagon to the tractor and all of my family would take a hay ride around the farm.  Bring a blanket. 


2. One of the most classic Fall activities, go to a pumkin patch and bring a pumpkin home to paint with your boyfriend, family or friends. 


3.  Visit an apple orchard.  This is something a little different you can do if you've already been to the pumpkin patch this year.  


4.  Go for a drive and enjoy the leaves.  Each Fall,  I would always go back roading with my mom to look at all the pretty leaves. 


5.  Take a blanket and cuddle up on the porch swing in the evening.  This is something I miss so much.  If you haven't done this, then just what are you doing with your life?


6.  Have a bake night with your boyfriend or family.  Pick out some of your favorite things like cookies or cinnamon rolls and start baking. 


7.  Go to your local Starbucks and get a pumpkin spice latte or just make your own at home with this recipe.


8.  Go to a corn maze.  If you have a corn maze close by, GO.  There's like no corn mazes or any Fall activities in Orlando and I wish there was. 


9. Build a fodder shock.  This is something me and my mom would do every year that I really miss.  We would go cut corn in the field together and build a huge fodder shock and me and my brother would help decorate it.  


10.  Build a bonfire and invite your family and friends over.  You can even bring hot dogs and marshmallows. 

I hope you all enjoyed this post and it inspires you to go out and enjoy Fall before it comes to an end.  Obviously,  I'm really missing Fall in Kentucky right now.  If you have Fall weather where you live, consider yourselves lucky.  Comment if you have any other ideas to do this season.  Have a good weekend and happy Fall!

xoxo,

Brooke
