Pinterest Inspired: ♡Pumpkin Decorating, Recipes & Skincare♡

Pumpkin season is upon us, and the pumpkin craze is in full swing!  Everywhere you turn you see pumpkin DIYs, decorating ideas, and of course recipes!  So today I was inspired to make a Pumpkin themed blogpost showing you some ideas on how to decorate pumpkins, make pumpkin recipes, and even how to make a pumpkin face mask!  

All these ideas I found on Pinterest, so yes this is another Pinterest Wednesday blogpost (on a Sunday lol).  If you're new to this series, let me explain.  I just take things I see on Pinterest and recreate them in a blogpost and/or video!  Be sure to check out the Pinterest Wednesday board to keep posted on all of the Past/Present/Future Pinterest Wednesday posts and just comment or message me to be added to the board if you have any pins you want me to recreate HERE 

The specific pumpkin decorating ideas I am going to show you in this post are a glitter pumpkin and a sequined pumpkin & the recipes are are a vegan PSS (Pumpkin spice smoothie) and pumpkin clementines, plus a skincare recipe is a pumpkin face mask!  Also, be sure to watch the video down below that goes along with this post! Enjoy! 


Sequined pumpkin 

This first DIY Decoration idea is a Sequined Pumpkin.  It is super easy to make and looks really cute as a side table decoration! 


 ~ Sequins 
~Elmer's Glue 
~Pumpkin (Real or Fake)


~Place small dots of glue on your pumpkin where you want your sequins to be

~Press the sequins into the glue

~Wait for it to dry

~Once dry your pumpkin is dry it's ready for use!

Glitter Pumpkin 

This DIY Glitter Pumpkin is my favorite DIY in this whole post, because I have a HUGE obsession with glitter!  It also makes for a beautiful centerpiece at any table!


~ Loose glitter of several colors; I used brown, gold, and orange
~Gold or any other color spray paint
~Pumpkin (Real or Fake)
~Elmer's Glue

 ~Spray paint your entire Pumpkin 

~Once dry apply Elmer's glue to the top portion of the pumpkin ONLY

~One color of glitter at a time, pour it onto the glue

~Apply a bit more glue under where your glitter is (unevenly so it looks like the glitter is dripped onto the pumpkin) DO NOT COVER THE WHOLE PUMPKIN

~Pour more glitter onto that glue

~Place a bit of glue at the top of your pumpkin's stem 

~Pour a mixture of glitter onto that as well

~Wait about 3-4 hours for it to dry

~Place where ever you please to decorate, just a warning that some glitter may get onto the table!

Clementine Pumpkins

This first recipe is the easiest of them all!  They are super cute Clementine Pumpkins, the perfect healthy treat for a halloween party!


~Cinnamon sticks 

~Peel your clementines

~Break a cinnamon  stick in half 

~Sick the cinnamon stick in the center of the clementine 

~Now your clementine pumpkins are ready for a halloween party! 

Vegan Pumpkin Spice Smoothie (PSS)

I call this recipe the PSS (Pumpkin spice Smoothie).  It is a healthy and Vegan alternative to the classic Pumpkin Spice Latte (PSL) from Starbucks, and let me tell you, IT'S DELICIOUS! 


~1 frozen banana
~1 cup of rice milk 
~1/2 cup of pumpkin 
~1 cup of vanilla dairy free yogurt 

~Add all of the ingredients into a blender in any order 

~Blend until smooth

~Pour into a cute glass and add a straw 

~Sprinkle some extra cinnamon to the top 

~Then it's ready to drink! 

Pumpkin Face Mask

This last Pumpkin DIY is a face mask!  It is super easy to make and when I use it, it leaves my skin feeling super smooth! 


(Sorry this face mask is not vegan, 
these ingrediants just work wonders on the skin)
~ 1 tbs of honey
~1 tbs of milk 
~2 tbs of pumpkin 

~Put all the ingredients into a small bowl in any order


~Leave in the fridge overnight to set 

~Take out the next day for use! 

I hope you all enjoyed reading about all the different Pumpkin DIY and Recipe ideas I recreated from Pinterest!  Be sure to follow my Pinterest HERE and comment below which of these ideas you will be doing!  Talk to you next time!

✽Fall Lookbook 2014✽

October has just begun, and with the change in weather comes a change of clothing as well.  It is now officially time to break out my long cardigans, loose dresses, and laced boots!  Since every season my style has a slight change, I put together this Fall 2014 lookbook with three of my go to fall outfits, and a video to go along with it!  The video also has three extra outfits from my friend Zoe as well, so you can get fall outfit inspiration from both of us!  Enjoy!



This first outfit has a bit of a bohemian vibe to it and is super comfy at the same time!  The flowy dress from Brandy Mellville is SUPER comfortable, light weight, and perfect for layering.  I also love that the dress is a deep maroon color because maroon is my favorite color to wear this season!  Under the dress I am just wearing a plain white tank top from Aeropostale because obviously when Brandy Melville says "Ones size fits all" they don't think about us girls that are five feet tall, but thats ok because I this the tank top looks nice with the dress.  What gives this outfit it's bohemian touch is this  long and loose, beige, laced cardigan also from Brandy Melville.  I have a lot of fun twirling around in this beautiful cardigan with floral lace detailing, and it makes me feel like a bohemian princess whenever I wear it!

This second outfit has a vintage casual look to it because of the light neutral color palette  and tiny vintage floral print in the dress.  I am actually wearing two dresses, because layering for the fall time is my absolute favorite!  The top dress is a cream colored long sleeved shift dress from Brandy Mellville.  I am absolutely IN LOVE with this dress because the material it is so soft and cozy and I feel like I am wearing a blanket NO JOKE!  Plus, the simplicity of the dress makes it possible for you to wear in many different ways.  The dress I layered under the first one is from American Eagle and has tiny vintage floral print all over it consisting of neutral colors.  This dress gives the outfit a pop of pattern and a shabby chic feel to it! 

This last outfit is what I would call a classic fall look; with the combat boots, knee high socks, and cardigan.  The cream colored cardigan I am wearing is from Aeropostale and it has the cutest little pockets on the sides of it.  It is the perfect cardigan to throw over any fall outfit when it gets cold.  Under the cardigan I am wearing a thick strapped cream tank top from Aeropostale.  I decided that I would keep the top simple so the focus of my outfit would be the skirt.  This fall colored floral skirt from Brandy Mellville is simply beautiful.  As you all know by now I LOVE floral print and this skirt is a perfect way to sneak it into my fall wardrobe.  Since it gets a little cold in the fall time I decided to add some maroon knee high socks from Target to this outfit.  They have the cutest buttons on the sides and the color matches the skirt quite nicely.  To finish off my classic fall outfit I wore these Steve Madden  grayish brownish combat boots.  Laced up combat boots are classic fall time attire, so they are the perfect shoes to complete this look!

I hope this lookbook gave you some inspiration on what to wear this fall!  Be sure to leave me a comment down below telling me what outfit is your favorite, and if your going pumpkin picking soon, because it's a lot of fun!
