Affordable Fall/Halloween Decor Haul

Hi Guysssssss!

Today’s post is going to be a fun one because, as you read from the title, it’s going to be completely dedicated to Fall and/or Halloween decorations! πŸ˜€ Not only that, but I made sure everything that I bought and am going to mention was all from affordable stores like CVS, Dollar Tree and TJ Maxx (actually, those are pretty much the only stores I got to go to lol).

I also wanted to be able to get a few things from Target and Michaels too (because I mean let’s be real, those stores always have amazing stuff for things like this), but I never got a chance to go to them :/ . Actually, by the time this post goes up, it’ll be Thursday, October 4th, and I’m actually going to be stopping by a mall that has those stores on Sunday. So if I end up buying anything from them, I’ll probably just post the extra items I got on my social media accounts, so be sure to follow me on them to see my new pick-ups (they’re always listed below)! πŸ™‚

I always have SO much fun decorating my room and house around this time of year, and for the holidays. It’s like my thing haha. Some of the things I’m going to mention are stuff I’ve had since last year, but the majority of the items are actually new.

*By the way, please don’t mind the mess in the background of some of the pictures, we just moved back in to our house, and I still have A LOT of stuff to unpack and put away 😩*

Let’s get started!

The first thing I have is actually something that I got last year in Michael’s I believe, and they’re pretty much just these little fairy lights that have pumpkins attached to them. They are SO cute. Originally I wanted to be able to hang them over my bed, but it didn’t work out because of issues with the outlet near my bed and what not, so instead I just strung them across my vanity which is just as cute. It also has a few different features for how the lights go off which is cute too. I got this for $14.99.

The next few things I got were actually from CVS.

I thought this little ghost figurine was SO FREAKIN’ cute. As soon as I saw it, I knew I had to get it. It was also the last one which was pretty lucky for me. I love that this also lights up, it changes between being lit up in green and red. Such a cute little accent that I’ll probably either put on my vanity or on my main bureau. I actually got this for $5.99.

These two little pumpkins were also from CVS. I just thought they looked cute and were different. Plus, you can never go wrong with getting decorative pumpkins of some sort for Fall/Halloween decorations. I’m still trying to figure out whether I should keep them both in my room, or put them somewhere downstairs in my house as decoration. The Trick or Treat pumpkin was $4.99, and the smaller one was $2.99.

I got this predominantly because I just LOVE snow globes, I have a mini collection of them, and figure why not add on to it with a halloween one now too?! I got this for $2.99.

There was also another one that I got from CVS, but I got it last year, and it’s much bigger than this one. It’s actually a Snoopy snow globe where he’s dressed like a witch, ugh I LOVE that one, but I have yet to find it for some reason. As soon as I do though, I’ll take a picture of it and show you guys on social media.

These next few things I got all from Dollar Tree. They’re all pretty self-explanatory, and pretty much things that I can hang on the walls in my room. Every single one of those things are also a dollar too, in case you guys weren’t aware for whatever reason.

I have a few little fake candles that you can just snap the switch and they’ll turn on and look lit up, in front of my tv, so I’m thinking for October and November I’ll substitute those for these little ones. They’re pretty bright for how tiny they are and considering they are from Dollar Tree lol.

I got this door hanger because I also have one for Christmas which I thought was really cute, and may as well get one for Fall/Halloween too. They had a bunch of different colors and styles, but I figure I didn’t have anything else in my stuff that looked like it, so I got this one!

I pretty much got this little container to just keep in my room or put on the main table downstairs and just keep some candy filled in it all the time until Halloween!

THESEΒ next couple of items I got from TJ Maxx in Manhattan.

These little hand/dish towels, I mean c’mon….look how freakin’ cute. There are 2 bathrooms in my house, so I’m thinking that I’ll probably put 2 in the kitchen hanging on the stove and then one in each bathroom for people to be able to use. I got them for $5.99 each.

I’m a sock girl who LOVES cute little patterns and designs like this whenever I can find them, so of course I had to get a few pairs. Each pair was $1.99.

IMG_0260

And finally, I got this ADORABLE little mug. I mean…..hello pumpkin!! 😩😍 how cute is this?! It’s also just like the perfect little size to have a small cup of coffee or a hot chocolate, or even tea if you’re in to that kind of thing. It’s kind of “plain” in a sense, but I love it, it’s just simple. I got this for $4.99.

Well guys that’s it. Those were all my recent little Fall/Halloween decoration pick-ups. I’m SURE I’ll end up getting a few more little things when I go to Target and Michaels on Sunday, but like I said earlier, when and if I do end up getting anything, I’ll show it to you guys on my social media so again, don’t forget to follow me on Instagram and Snapchat to see it! πŸ™‚

I hope you guys enjoyed reading this post as much as I enjoyed writing and shopping for it! Look out for my next post coming on Sunday, because it’s going to be another little fun one! 😊

All About Fall

Gooooooooooooooooood Morning Everyone! 😊

I’m here at work, and so far it’s been a pretty slow day, not much going on in the office right now. So, I was sitting here brainstorming what some of my future posts should be about and reminiscing on old ones, and although I do have a list already of future topics I want to and will speak about, I realized that a lot of my recent posts have been pretty serious/heavy topics. So I thought about it and figure that I’ll do an impromptu post of something a lot more lighthearted than some of the others that have been going up lately. πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ

It’s another tag, and yes again, I know doing tags are predominantly for YouTubers and you really don’t see things like that going up on blogs, but I thought it would be something fun and sort of out of the blue to do today. πŸ˜…

This is pretty much an Everything Fall πŸπŸ‚ tag. I don’t know about anyone else, but Fall is like my favorite season. It’s not too hot, not too cold (that is when the weather is actually cooperating), and it’s just like the perfect time of year. The leaves are changing colors and falling, pumpkin and apple picking, it’s just a really beautiful time of year.

There’s a really beautiful quote that I always see around this time of year and love so much; “The trees are about to show us how lovely it is to let the dead things go.” It might sound a little weird and/or gruesome, but there’s just something about it that I like. It’s also the passageway for the holidays starting which is exciting in itself (to me anyway).

So it’s all going to be two different tags technically, but all the questions and stuff are going to be Fall related.

Let’s get started! The first one I’m doing is I Heart Fall.

I Heart Fall Tag:

1. Favorite Fall scent – It’s this candle called Home from Bath & Body works…UGH I love it so much, it’s so pretty and soft smelling, definitely my favorite. Unfortunately, it says limited edition on it so I’m not sure if it’s something you could still purchase online or in store.
2. Best way to spend a rainy day – Personally, at home cuddled up in a blanket with (or without) your significant other watching movies/Netflix all day.Β 

3. Favorite Fall Drink – This is hard to say, because I know the basic answer would be Pumpkin Spice Latte, which I’ve tried and think is okay, but I’m not obsessed with it like other people. So I’m just going to say my normal Iced Caramel Macchiato drink from Starbucks. β˜•οΈ
4. Football 🏈 , yay or nay? – Somewhere in between, it’s probably like jumping on the bandwagon, but I always get excited for watching it when the SuperBowl comes around, and every year when it does, I tell myself next season I want to REALLY get into it, but never do lol.
5. Favorite article of clothing this Fall – Sweatersssssssssssssssssss ! and long boots 😍
6. Haunted house, haunted hay ride, or haunted corn maze? – Oh dear…haunted ANYTHING and me are just not a good mix, I’m too much of a chicken shit for any of that lmao πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈ
7. The scariest movie you’ve ever seen… – The Exorcist movies SMDH!!!

e60c7c5f28c8ce5c7359493330807cde--autumn-photos-fall-pics.jpg

8. Favorite candy to eat on Halloween? – I’m such a chocolate person that I’ll say KitKat, but actual candy probably swedish fish or those candy hamburgers.Β 
9. What will you or your kids be this year? – I have no idea yet!!!! Still in the process of figuring that out lol.
10. What is your Favorite thing about Fall? – The leaves changing colors and falling is my absolute FAVORITE thing, it’s so pretty everywhere because of that. πŸƒπŸ‚πŸπŸ˜

The next tag is called An Autumn Tag.

An Autumn Tag:

1. The smell of pumpkin guts or rotting leaves? Rotting Leaves.
2. Sweet or salty pumpkin seeds? Sweet.
3. Store bought or pumpkin patch pumpkins? If I could go, it would definitely always be pumpkin patch pumpkins, otherwise I’ll settle for store bought ones. πŸŽƒπŸŽƒ

images
4. Wool or knit sweaters? – Little bit of both honestly.
5. Halloween party or explore haunted places? – Halloween Party! πŸ’ƒπŸ»
6. Apple pie or pumpkin pie? –Β Pumpkin pie
7. Still, silent nights or rainy, windblown nights? – Rainy, windblown nights! β›ˆ
8. Witches or ghosts? –WitchesΒ 

Bonfires-Halloween-Football-Hoodies-Leaves-Cuddling-Fall-Happy-First-Day-of-Fall

 

9. Raking leaves or climbing trees? – Lol what? Umm climbing trees

10. Ouija boards or ghost stories around a campfire? – I’m a chicken shit people, neither!!!!! πŸ™„πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈ

11. October or November? –Β November!!

12. Black cats or owls? – Black cats.Β 

13. Fireplace or candle light? – This one’s hard, so I’ll just say both.

14. Monster movies or their classic novels? – Can neverΒ  beat the classic novels!

15. Carve or paint pumpkins? – Carving pumpkins!!

Well that’s all I’ve really got for today, please comment below or send me messages on social media or something if there are things in particular you, my readers, want to see more of. Always open to new ideas of things to post!

Also, feel free to comment below somebody of YOUR favorite Fall things, and/or answer the questions that I answered 😌.

Also, I’m seriously thinking about starting a YouTube channel. I know basic right? lol, but it’s something I’ve been thinking about for a while, and the more I think about it, the more I want to make it happen. It would sort of be a visual aid for my written blog here, not necessarily touching upon all the same things, but something similar to it. What do you think? Leave me your thoughts on it.

Until next time!
