dripping blood nail art


 We are getting Halloween inspired today with this
creepy dripping blood nail art!

For this look, we used Essie's:
Carry On
White Page

To achieve:

It's very easy to do! Simply paint your white base coat. When 
dry, get a decent amount of red onto the tip of your nail. Using
a pointed object (we used a safety pin) drag the excess paint
down your nail for a drip effect,



Happy Halloween!

10 times Lauren Conrad nailed Halloween


Oh, Deer!


How fun is this? Whether you are looking for a group costume,
or even just an individual, we love how she makes woodland
creatures look tres chic!

Toothfairy


This costume is easy, and can probably be done in a pinch!
Throw some tulle over a sleeveless dress, voila!

Mermaid


There are few words for how fantastic, and realistic this
mermaid costume is. Nailed it.

Brittany Spears


Yes. Talk about a great last minute idea. Who doesn't
have these items on hand? Pleated skirt, white button down,
and knee socks and you are golden.

Minnie Mouse
Even if you don't have a polka dot dress on hand, Conrad
shows us here, that you can fanagle a Minne Mouse-esque look
with a combination of red and white.

Ghost 


Every girl has a white dress, or neutral. All you need
is an oversized bow and some washed out makeup!

Mary Poppins


We love this costume inspired by one of our
all time favortie Disney movies.

sweater dress





 One of our favorite things about chillier weather
has to hands down be chunky sweaters. A good
sweater is hard to come by for us, we like ours a little
oversized so we can pair them with tights or leggings
to pull off a sweater dress. This magnificent
sweater was found at Savers. Savers has become
our one-stop-shop if you will for sweaters this year.
We have been having really good luck in the mens
racks!

fried cinnamon apple rings


You will need:

4 large apples
oil, for frying

For the Batter:
 
1 cup flour
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
2/3 tsp cinnamon
3 TBS sugar
1 cup milk
1 large egg

For the Cinnamon Sugar Coating
1 cup sugar
1 tsp cinnamon

To make:

Preheat a large shallow pot full of about 2 inches of oil over medium heat. 
Then, slice your apples into thin round slices, 
about ¼ inch thick. Using a knife,
 cut out the cored of your apples into 2 ring.


In a medium sized bowl mix together your flour, baking powder, salt,
 cinnamon and sugar.the in a small bowl combine your milk and egg.
Mix your egg and milk mixture into your flour mixture.
Taking a couple of apple rings at a time, dip them into
your batter mixture until fully coated. Lift the ring from
the mixture and allow them to drip excess batter.
Then, transfer your batter covered ring over to your 
preheated oil.
allow to cook for a couple minutes or so, 
making sure to flip once one side is a golden
 brown color, until each side is golden brown. 
Remove from oil and place on some paper towels to drip excess oil off.


In a third bowl combine your cinnamon and sugar
 for the topping. Once the rings are cooled, dip each
ring into the mixture until coated on both sides.



Enjoy!

These apple rings are really good dipped
in maple or chocolate syrup, but you can
get creative with your flavors!
