Halloween Costumes // Ice Cream & Cotton Candy

If you're anything like us you usually leave it to the day of Halloween to start throwing together some sort of costume. So we decided to give you a little inspiration! We put together a couple fun and cute costumes using Shabby Apple's tulle Bloom skirts. There were so many ideas that went around in our heads for these cute ballerina style skirts, but I love the sweet treat inspired costumes we settled on. 

To recreate this upside down Ice Cream Cone Costume you will need: 
-White Tulle Bloom Skirt
-Mini Popsicle Sticks
-White Tee or Tank
-White Shoes
-Brown Paper
-Bobby Pins
-Coloured Paints
-Safety Pins
-Hot Glue Gun

Cone: Cut a sheet of brown paper in half diagonally and roll into the shape of cone, secure with tape. Attach the cone to your hair using bobby pins, poking a hole threw each side of the paper cone and securing to your hair - or - use hot glue to glue the cone to a headband.

Sprinkles: Paint the mini popsicle sticks an assortment of bring colours and use hot glue to secure a safety pin to the back of each sprinkle. Attach the sprinkles to your outfit using the safety pins. 

To recreate the Cotton Candy Costume you will need: 
-Pink Tulle Bloom Skirt
-Pink Hair Chalk
-Pink Tee or Tank
-Pink Tights
-Pastel Coloured Shoes
-White Paper

Cone: Cut a sheet of the paper in half diagonally and roll into the shape of cone, secure with tape. Attach the cone to your hair using bobby pins, poking a hole threw each side of the paper cone and securing to your hair - or - use hot glue to glue the cone to a headband. 

Cotton Candy Hair Do: Colour the ends of your hair with pink hair chalk then follow our Top Knot Hair Tutorial. In the Top Knot hair Tutorial, add lots of extra back combing. Once your top knot is secure spray with hair spray then tug the edges and rub them between your fingers to give it a flossy look.

A Month of Nesting // 3 Ways to Organize your Bathroom

As girls, naturally, our bathrooms can turn into a little bit of a disaster... and by a little bit I mean that I literally once had cops walk through my house after our alarm going off and they thought our bathroom was ransacked. Soooo I would love to help you avoid that embarrassing situation and share a few practical ways to keep your bathroom well organized. 

Under the sink //
Using a tension rod underneath the sink gives you a spot to hang cleaning products and free up some space on the shelf. You can purchase one of these at most hardware or department stores, here is a link to one

Our wire basket DIY is the perfect toilet paper holder, take a look at the post here. 

Make Up Drawer //
Use a utensil drawer organizer to put your make up and brushes in. Goodbye powder filled make up bag, and hello clean make up artist drawer. Ikea has one for $2.99, do yourself a favour. 

Tool Rack // 
Mounting a magnetic strip on the wall or inside a cupboard board will keep you from digging through the bottom of every purse trying to find a loose bobby pin. Such a convenient way to keep track of all those little tools that get lost in the bottom of a drawer so easily. Here is a link to one.
