Pumpkin Carving

Fall is amazing! The colors, food, and fashion just make me smile. This is the third year that I go to my friends for a pumpkin carving party. I have carved a total of three pumpkins and I absolutely love it! I always say I'll save the seeds so that I can salt and bake them, I have yet to do this's there is always next year.

This is what you will need:

Pumpkin Masters Deluxe Pumpkin Carving Kit, I got mine at Walmart.

I let my boyfriend get down and dirty by cleaning the pumpkin out, then again this is the first time he's carved a pumpkin. I am sure he did not expect me to point out the areas he missed, he did a great job though!
This is the first pumpkin that I did not totally kill and I am very proud of how adorable it came out. We chose a cyclops we named him Mike Wazowski. What do you think?

Did you carve a pumpkin this year, share your links I would love to see how they came out.

Swine Experience

I love exploring Miami especially when it's food. I'm not a fat ass I pinky promise, I just love going to new places and seeing what unique drinks and food combinations they have to offer. 

I have been hearing about this place Swine for months and I've been dying to go, not to mention I've heard nothing but raving reviews. Well I finally got to experience Swine thanks to my wonderful boyfriend that surprised me. Lucky me!

My boyfriend had Malbec and I had a martini with whiskey in it!! So delicious and I've definitely never had that before.

Fried Green Tomato BLT

If you've never had fried green tomatoes get to it & try something new! It is delicious sweet & salty. Not to mention the small slices of thick bacon on top with a jam like sauce. It is a great combination of flavors and nothing not too sweet.
Crispy Brussels Sprouts
Now this is something I wouldn't make at home. Not because it's bad but I honestly don't think I would know how to properly make it. It has a very bitter taste naturally and I think I would mess it up. I might try one day anyways but it might take a while. I have no idea how they made it at Swine but it was delicious.

Country Fried Bacon & Waffles

If you've heard of chicken and waffles then you know how delicious it is. I would say this is the sister to that dish and it's mouth watering! If I had room I would've had the whole thing. I wanted room for dessert is I controlled myself. 
Shrimp & Grits
My boyfriend sees shrimp and grits and he starts salivating like he hasn't had anything to eat for weeks! Needless to say I think this is the best version if this dish we have had.

Slice of Heaven

This was the special of the day and it was scrumptious with buttermilk ice cream. 

Stay tuned for my adventure at Love is Blind.

October is here!

So I have been a tad lost these last couple of days! My moms birthday just passed at the end of September and I just ended up taking a break from my busy crafting, blogging and social media in general. The holidays are right around the corner and I know I will be busy busy busy the rest of the year! Enough of my rant, on to why you are here.
Ahhhh October is here WOOT WOOT! First fall arrives and now October the beginning of the Holidays! I love festivities oh so much, the decorating, crafting, fashion and makeup all now have a twist for the next four months. These are just some of the oh so fabulous items I found on Etsy, not to fret there will be way more Halloween themed post this month.
As much as I adore this first piece I know I would only use it as a backdrop for my phone or MacBook, which lets face it doesn't sound too good but I know that once I have it in one form then I will most likely end up buying it and putting it somewhere were it will stay forever. You must admit it is adorable and perfect for this month.
 This vase is there anything I can tell you that you can not already see with your own two eyes. It is absolutely adorable and really perfect for the entire year.
The Object Enthusiast
Zombies have always been around but they seem to be a reoccurring theme lately. I am not really of fan of the idea of corpses walking the earth but hey it is the season for such shenanigans. Plus this is a really neat cup!
My Crafty Momma
This book case is just simply rustic and I want it. What does one do when they want something but have no where to put it?

Fall Everywhere else except Miami

Fall is beautiful what with the leaves changing colors and what not. This however does not happen in Miami, we get humid or chilly mornings, heaping hot and rainy afternoons and the evening varies. Oh and our leaves change into pretty green ones to ugly brown dead ones. I know I sound dramatic, but if you lived here you would know exactly how moody our weather is. Luckily I have had the chance to see the autumn leaves fall in person twice in NYC and once in Georgia it was so pretty, not to mention the opportunity to shop for some new fall and winter items.

Whenever I get the chance to travel during the fall and winter seasons I will wear something along the lines of this outfit right below. It is really the only time I can sport a sweater and boots all day long.  
For Peach Post Earring go HERE

In Miami this is more of what I would wear during the season, even if it is a little chilly or even by our standards freezing by noon it will return to regular Miami weather. So I might as well dress for the rest of the day rather than the first five hours.

What is the weather like in your city or town?
