DIY: Halloween Centerpiece

Well it's not quite a DIY, but this is my centerpiece for my coffee table. 

The hurricane vase in the back right corner is from the dollar tree, as well as the leaves inside it. I have a smaller candle holder upside down inside it and the leaves stacked around that. And on top of the upside down candle holder I have an automatic tea light candle. 

What do you do for Halloween decorations in an apartment?

"That's my baybayyy!!"

I got them summer blues. *cue Lana's Summertime Sadness* It may be 80 degrees outside, but I swear it's 40 inside these classrooms! It may be the South, but they sure aint conserving energy. My tuition probably doesn't even cover the electric bill. At least I get an excuse to wear my new sweaters from Target!

"I forgot I was driving."

Temperatures are dropping and my body is confused about what to wear. So today I chose a sweater with shorts. The sweater is new from Target, and my shorts are older and actually used to be a romper, but I cut the top part off. My little fox necklace is one of my old favorites. It is turning colors from wearing it so much, but I still love it! 


DIABY is an acronym for Do It All By Yourself. That is what this site is mostly about, inspiring you to create things all on your own. Most would say I am decently creative, but you can be the judge of that. I am a student in progress of becoming a teacher, so I might include neat lesson plans every now and then. I dabble in photography and painting and sewing and drawing. Don't hold your breathe, I only claim to be decent at all the above. Hold tight for examples of what I create when I am bored at home. 

Right now I am really into decorations and home decor, so my next post will be some things I have done around the house. Spoiler** Halloween is right around the corner, so get ready for fall themes!! (YAY!!!)

Inside a plastic storage bin with three drawers you will find it crammed full of everything from skater skirts to rainbow overalls. And above this chaotic but organized scene is hangers with countless cardigans and dresses piled on. I have at least four dresses per hanger. #apartmentliving #sharingacloset. At one end right before the masses of cardigans begin, I have one hanger that holds my work uniform: black pants, a vest, a white button up, a cummerbund, and a bow tie. I cater to the rich. 

But when I am not working I get to play with the fun fabrics that fill my half of the closet that I share with my girlfriend. Here's a look into my wardrobe that I love oh so much, even if it doesn't lead to Narnia.
