Happy Halloween Passionista

Hello Passionista!

It’s been ages since I’ve carved a pumpkin and roasted pumpkin seeds. This year I was determined to do both. So I called over my girls for a “Girl’s Night”. We sipped wine and carved our cute little pumpkins.

Honestly, it was easier than I remember it being. I can’t explain why but as a kid it felt like carving a pumpkin was the hardest thing to do. I’m overjoyed with the way my pumpkin, “Jack-o-lena” came out.

Jack-o-lena sat gracefully on my countertop with a cinnamon candle for about 5 days before I saw mold and threw her out.

Now I did try to roast the seeds from inside the pumpkin. It was an epic fail. I burnt them. I don’t even know how they burnt. They didn’t look burnt but for sure tasted burnt. Better luck next year.

Tell me (in the comments), What traditions do you like to do with your family and friends on Halloween?

Before I go, #selfcarenovember starts tomorrow. Head over to my IG (@thepassionista__) for the flyer and take the challenge with me.

Black Panther Party Group Costume | Halloween 2018

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!!!!!!

As a kid, I never really got to dress up for Halloween. So now, I love to get dressed up for Halloween and luckily so does my friends. Halloween is one of my besties favorite holiday, so I have to dress up no matter if I like it or not … lol

For the past 3 years, my sister gals and I have did group costumes. As hard as it is to get 6 girls with different preferences on one accord to decide on one idea that everyone likes, the finish product and the good time we have is always worth it.

Year 1 we managed to achieve ” The Royal Flush” – DIY costumes made by me.

Year 2 we quickly put together “The Purge Trio“- DIY costumes put together by me.

 

 

 

This year, we pulled off the ” Black Panther Party” costumes put together by all of us.

Honestly, this group costume was the easiest to put together. Everyone picked an all black outfit to fit there personal style and comfort level – because its was cold. We all purchases black gloves, black berets, and black sunglasses.

My entire outfit is from Forever 21, but it was all stuff I already had in my closet (off shoulder sweater, Black ripped jeans, and booties).

Black Sunglasses from the Dollar Tree

Black Beret from Target ($12.99)

Black Gloves from Amazon ($7.99)

We hit the town for a fun night of loud music, dancing and eating sweet treats. I swear I had to much candy and cupcakes for comfort.

Hello Passionistas and Happy November!!!!

We are getting to my favorite time of year. I love November, December, January and February months. But any whoo- this blog is all about Halloween.

This Halloween I did a group costume with a few of my friends. We decided to PURGE!!!!

img_9418Honestly, these costumes were thought of last minute and put together every quickly and easy.

We purchase over-sized white ti-shirts and Halloween blood from Walmart. I made rips and whole in the shirts, adding blood splatter for a visual affect. We wore the shirt with black legging (that we already had).

We purchased the mask, flag bandannas,  and plastic weapons from party city- for less than $20.00
