Lifestyle | My Apple Picking Adventure!


Hi, friends!

Every year, I look forward to my annual apple picking adventure with Fred!
We  love going to The Orchard & Company in Plain City. It's just the cutest place with incredible apple cider slushies!

Fred isn't pictured because he wasn't feeling the best while we were there. :(
We're hoping we'll be able to go back one more time before the season is over to have some more fall fun!

 Have you been apple picking yet?

Do you prefer picking apples, or picking out your pumpkins? :)

Style | How To: Affordable DIY Luna Lovegood Halloween Costume!

Hi, friends!

Happy Halloween week!

I've loved seeing pictures of everyone's costumes online. It’s such a fun season for creativity and imagination. I’d love to know what you’re going as this year! 

I’ve wanted to go as Luna Lovegood for a few years now. She’s definitely one of my favorite literary characters. There is so much to love about Luna. She’s dreamy, unique, kind, and wise for her age. I think her peers underestimate her strength and intelligence. 
& Not to mention, she has quite the flair for fashion! 

I hope you guys enjoy this post; it was so fun shooting these pictures and getting into character!
 The only thing I bought for this costume was the Spectra Specs and I ordered them from Amazon
You can find them here!

Since I only bought the specs, the whole outfit cost under $15. I think this costume idea is very affordable for any budget, because you can improvise a lot of the pieces!
 To make the Quibbler magazine:

I printed out a picture of the Quibbler magazine cover. Then, I cut out the cover out and taped it onto an old magazine.
"I sleepwalk, you see. 
That’s why I wear shoes to bed."
 For the clothes:

I got lucky because I found pieces in my closet for the whole outfit that I thought would work. If you don’t have pieces that you like, you could easily and affordably thrift some! 
"I think they think I'm a bit odd, you know."
"I suspect the Nargles are behind it."
"Don't worry, you're just as sane as I am."
 I’ve seen some paper printout Spectra Specs online that you could use if you didn’t want to buy them!  This DIY Spectra Specs blog post is a great one to use!
 To make the cork necklace:

I took the cork from a wine bottle and stuck a screw eye into it. 
Next, I cut some yarn the length that I wanted the necklace to be. 
Then, I put the screw eye with the cork on it onto the yarn. You can tie the yarn together around your neck to clasp it shut. You dont need anything fancy!
 You could also just glue the cork straight onto the yarn.  
"I hope there's pudding."
"My mum always said things we lose have a way of coming back to us in the end. 
If not always in the way we expect."
 To make the wand:

Fred made my wand for me and he put a dowel rod in a drill and took sand paper to it to create the right shape. Then, he took a marker and drew some symbols onto the rod. 

If you want to make something not as detailed, you could just use a stick, or make the wand out of clay.
Who is your favorite literary character?!
Do you love Luna as much as I do? <3 

Love,

Christina xx

Style | OOTD Pumpkin Orange Style + The Cutest Tiny Elephant Ring!


 Hi, friends!

Fred and I are leaving for Arizona tomorrow and we're so excited!! We're heading there to visit my sister and brother-in-law. Be sure to follow me on my Instagram if you wanna see everything from our trip! I will also be posting some fun posts from our trip when we get back.

If you would pray for safe travels for our trip, we'd really appreciate it! :)

Oh, and maybe prayers for good health too! I've felt sick all week and I'm hoping to feel better while we're on our trip.
I still wear white after labor day. I really don't care about those rules. I think white can look really crisp in the fall and I love it in the winter as well! I'll definitely be wearing this adorable white tiered skirt all year round. I got it from Zaful and I also got this pumpkin orange tie-up top from Zaful! I love wearing the nice pumpkin-y and rust colors in the autumn season, because it makes me feel so festive.

I was so excited to capture these wedges so that I could share them with you guys. I absolutely love the Aracelli style from Bearpaw! I have it in the linen color and in hickory. They look so soft and pretty in the linen shade which is what I'm wearing in this post!

Another thing I was really excited to share with you guys is this tiny elephant ring from Jeulia! I mean, how cute are those little elephants?! Jeulia has some super unique jewelry pieces. I first saw some of their pieces on Instagram on some bloggers that I follow and I'm so happy to have my own! Thank you Jeulia, I love my little elephant ring!
