A Look Back At 2015!

I can't believe it is almost 2016!! This past year was filled with lots of ups and a few downs. No matter what I'm going through in life I am always trying to look at the bright side and count my blessings. Here are a few memories from 2015 from spending countless days at Disneyland, many hair changes, tons of new tattoos, getting  Engaged, my engagement party, meeting new friends, my niece being born, lots of experimenting with makeup and so many more.

Happy New Years everyone. I hope 2016 is a good one filled with even more blessings.

DIY: Mary Poppins Hat (Halloween Costume)

This year for Halloween I'm going to be dressing up as Mary Poppins as you may already know. This costume is one I've wanted to do since last year but like every other year I didn't do any planning ahead of time & then end up doing something super easy & last minute. Once Rudy & I decided we were going to Disneyland to celebrate our birthdays along with celebrating Halloween a little bit early I wanted to plan our costumes asap! We also had finally purchased our tickets to Mickeys Halloween party at Disneyland, which we are both so excited about! It was going to be our first time attending so I really wanted a well thought costume even if it was something easy to do.

This costume was super easy & you can create with mostly things you already have in your closet. Me being me I had to buy everything for this costume just as an excuse to shop haha. I was looking into just buying an already made Mary Poppins hat through Etsy but they were pretty pricey so I decided just to make mine myself which isn't hard at all & a excuse to get a little crafty. I decided to show step by step how I created my Mary Poppins inspired hat in three very simple steps. This will probably even be a pointless post but I had fun making it & wanted to share it with you guys.

Things you'll need:
-A black hat
-Flowers similar to Mary's; I chose daisies & some red flowers similar to the daisies 
-Hot glue gun & glue sticks 
-Scissors


Step 1: You want to start off by cutting pieces of the flowers, keep the stems long you can always go back & cut it shorter. For now your just going to start placing them on the hat making a guide to what you'd like it to look like. Play around with it, it doesn't have to look perfect either. I didn't have a method at all when doing this I first just started grabbing one color at a time then filling empty areas.


Step 2: Once you are satisfied of what your flowers on your hat looks like you're going to start hot gluing them down. Hot glue can get very messy so just try to work in small areas at a time.Once you apply the glue you can move the flower around and pretty much shape it in the form you want it to stay. Also at this point you can cut the stems shorter if you need to.

Step 3: Once you're done gluing all the flowers down check it out and add some more flowers where every you think needs it or where you see holes.

& You're Done!

See wasn't that beyond easy? Now you have a hat just like Mary Poppins. I love how my costume turned out. I had many compliments at Disneyland while I wore it to the party. It was something super fun to wear and we had such a fun time at the party too.
What are will guys dressing up as for Halloween?

Disneyland Vacation Photos

Last week Rudy & I went back to our favorite place on earth, Disneyland. We've made a tradition to go every year for our Birthdays. This year we went the week after our birthday & it was so much fun as it usually is. It was so nice to be back there I swear if I could just live there I would be the happiest girl on earth haha. We ended up getting our annual passes again so I'm very excited for another year filled with visits to Disneyland. I took tons of photos like always & wanted to share them with everyone here that reads my blogs. While we were down there we finally attended Mickey's Halloween Party! It was mine & Rudy's first time going & it was so much fun! We got to see Villains, characters that I've never seen before like Wendy! Watch shows that are specifically for the Halloween party & trick or treat. We got a bag filled with candy. I won't ever say this enough but it was so much fun just being back. I always have the best time there. So enough with the rambling here are tons of photos from our trip & when I say tons I mean a bunch!

Also don't forget to check out the Vlog I made of our trip. I posted it on my last blog post. Hope you all enjoy!
