Some teen bedroom ideas

Heyy everybody! I love decorating my room, which btw is shared with my sister (ugh), so I scroll thru these things a lot. I just had to share these awesome bedroom ideas. I’m still in the process of redecorating and I can’t decide on exactly how I want my room to look. I love “rustic” kinda styled bedrooms, they’re some of my faves xD you’ll see what I mean, so here they are!

That’s all for now! They’re awesome, am I right? I like to use em(and many other bedroom ideas I’ve seen on the web, or on magazines) for redecorating my room. Of course, I would have to have my sister agree with whatever I’m doing, but she doesn’t have much preferences lol just things she wouldn’t want in the room, she’ll want it out 😛

Till next time,

Tomorrow’s Halloween…

Wow, tomorrow’s already Halloween and I still don’t have my costume put together. I always end up waiting last minute before I make some costume(except last year, my grandma made my costume, my sister is going to be that this year). Ok, well I was planning for my costume, which btw is a FOX(yes I chose that over Mario), to be:

Jeans

White tee shirt (with something really warm, but not too chunky, under it)

Any orangish brown sweater (I’m aiming for that color instead of orange, maybe even brown)

Felt ears w/ headband– using black felt, orangish brown felt, and white felt

Black nail polish OR black gloves

Fox makeup

Combat boots ( I have brown ones)

Fox tail (I’m just pinning a brown tail of fabric on my jeans xD)

And that’s my overall costume, if I find anything else in my house I’ll see what I can do with it! Of course I’ll find a way to keep warmer with this, it’ll be freezing. And, here’s the AWESOME fox makeup tutorial I’ll be using on Wonder Forest, I’m not even kidding finding this is the main reason why I’m even being a fox! And haha I apologize for my costume being a little ridiculous 😛 You know, I think I’m being kind of a brown fox.

What are you being for Halloween?

First blog post!

Hey, welcome to my first blog post, yay!

I would like to start by saying, fall is definitely my favorite season– the golden colored trees, the apple pie (I don’t have it that often but it reminds me of fall), the sweater weather, and of course, Thanksgiving and Halloween! Thanksgiving is a great time with family expressing what your grateful for. And Halloween, who doesn’t love Halloween, seriously. I still don’t know what I’m being for Halloween, its only like 17 days away or something… I’m obviously gonna make a DIY costume, the last time I wore a store bought one was when I was 6. Since then I’ve been making my own, and like just right now I realized that lol. I’ll just have to think about what I’m being, and look for ideas on the Internet.

See ya guys next time! Sorry for the post being so short haha, next I will hopefully show you guys some crafts for this season.
