Gold + Glitter Pumpkin DIY Party

IMG_3436

With so many darling glitter, spray paint, and gold leaf pumpkin DIY ideas floating around Pinterest, I decided to throw an impromptu Crafternoon to put them to the test! I rounded up some of my girlfriends who share a passion for crafting + cocktails, and we had at it. Read below for our faves, and some tips we discovered along the way!

The How-Tos

White Pumpkin + Glittered Dots / Stripes DIY  (Yesterday’s Sweetheart)

-This one was SUPER easy and fun! You could whip out a ton of these in no time. For the dots, we used a cheap round sponge brush we got in a $2 paint brush pack at Michael’s.

Glitter Stem (Nest of Posies)

-We were inspired by Nest of Posies’ glittered stem pumpkins, combined with the gold leaf writing from this gorgeous tablescape.

Confetti Ombre Pumpkins (Made In A Day)

-We didn’t have sequins on hand, so we made do with a glitter bomb instead. We called these little guys our “Fireworks.”

Dip-Dyed Glitter Pumpkins (The Farmer’s Daughter)

-We took liberties with this one and tried various combinations of spray paint and glitter. We loved them all!

Gold Spray Paint (4 Men 1 Lady)

-Make sure you press the painter’s tape ALL the way down to ensure the cleanest gold line

Black + Studded (Confetti Pop)

-Love this edgy take on the pumpkin!

Lace Pumpkins (Allyson Baker) aka the “Stone Cold Fox” Pumpkin

We were inspired by the above DIY link, but put our own twist on it using lace, sparkly ribbon, and twine.

Tulum Travel Diary

For our first official vacation since our Honeymoon in Tahiti, my husband and I were ready to unplug and soak up some much needed sunshine. Tulum had been on our radar for awhile, and we were beyond excited to explore this gem of the Yucatan! Read on for some of my top Tulum travel tips.

The Beach Tulum – We stayed at this spectacular Adult-only boutique hotel for the first leg of our vacation. From the swings in the hotel restaurant/bar Ziggys, to the incredible ocean view rooms, I seriously cannot say enough good things about this hotel.

Plenty of couches to luxuriate in, steps from our room. Servers from Ziggys cruise by and take drink and food orders throughout the day.

 As part of our package we received complimentary breakfast every morning, which included the option to dine on our private patio! Fruit, coffee, juice, toast = happiness.

 The Beach Tulum had a wrap around pool that spanned the property’s length of rooms, but was never really used whenever we popped in. It does vie for attention with the glittering Caribbean Sea, but we enjoyed luxuriating with a Jalapeno margarita in the afternoons here.

One of my FAVE parts of Tulum is the abundance of bikes! Most of the hotels offer bikes for rental, and it’s super fun to cruise up and down the beach strip and check out the different places.

Gitano is a Tulum hot spot for a reason. So adored this garden restaurant under the stars!

We changed it up halfway through our trip and shacked up in a Robinson Crusoe-inspired destination called Cabanas La Luna.

 Of course we HAD to check out the Mayan ruins! It was swarming with tourists, but is definitely worth checking out.

 We used some of our Starwood points to stop off on Cancun before heading back to LA. This was our first time, and I must say we were pleasantly surprised! Truly the most beautiful beaches we have EVER seen.

The challenge: create a

lay down around a specific theme using key items from your wardrobe that show off your personal style. I chose “holiday dressing” which, for me, means lots of full skirts, metallic accents, bold colors, and a touch of sparkle. My fave items:

Tahari Cap Toe Heels (sold out, but similar here) / Lovers + Friends Sure Thing Dress / Chanel Purse (vintage) / Ell And Emm Audrey Necklace / Bel and Beau Sapphire Skirt / Clare Viver Pouch / Leather Jacket (vintage) / Ivanka Trump Carra Pumps / Forever 21 Dress (last year)

Little Luxuries | Natalie Hughes

Finding small ways to treat yourself is a must in my book, which is why I love finding 5 little every day luxuries to highlight (& indulge in) each month. For November’s edition, I asked one of my all-time fave Pinterest stars, Natalie Hughes, to share her picks. Not only does she have serious Pinterest game (Glitter Guide named her one of their “Favorite 20 Pinners to Follow”), she has her own blog, is a freelance journalist, social media gal for the one and only Christian Louboutin (okay, so her “every day” luxuries might be a tad of a stretch for some of us), contributes to Refinery 29, and just seems like an all-around sweet girl. Peruse her lovely finds below, and make sure to follow her pins for more swoon-worthy items!

1. Novelty iPhone cases. My iPhone now has almost as many outfits as I do – I have a whole drawer full of cases! This little Moschino case-bag is the latest in my growing collection.iPhone Case
2. Zoning out with music. I generally work from home but when I have to do the dreaded morning commute, the one thing that makes it worthwhile is putting my headphones on and listening to a great album, uninterrupted, for an hour or so. Recently I’ve been enjoying Jessie Ware, Haim, Frank Ocean and Best Coast.

3. Red Soles. I’m lucky enough to do some work for Christian Louboutin, which definitely hasn’t helped my Red Sole addiction! These Chelita boots are my favourites – I haven’t taken them off since I got them. Louboutins never fail to brighten my day (and my
