Sparkles and Sunshine: Weekly Round Up

Weekly Round Up

Friday, November 2, 2018

Happy Friday!

How was everyone's week? Did you do anything fun for Halloween? My work always goes all out for Halloween and the theme that our department chose was the 90's. We had a handful of different things from the 90's, but me and a few coworkers went as the Power Rangers. Here's a photo in case you missed it!

Below are this today's weekly round up articles. I did share some of my favorite Halloween costumes of this year, and trust me, this list doesn't even begin to cover it! I hope you enjoy!




Favorite Halloween Costumes:

After seeing all of the Halloween costumes this year, I am officially stepping up my game next year. I can't wait to create something awesome next year. Until then, below are some of my favorite Halloween costumes of this year. Trust me though, I could've named hundreds! If you saw a really cool one that isn't on this list, please share it with me in the comments below. I'd love to see!

Food:

I saw these festive skull brownies from The Toasted Pinenut the day after Halloween and thought it was such a creative and festive dessert. Her recipe for Gluten Free Tahini Brownies is linked below, as well as the Instagram photo of the Halloween version.

Chandler and I were literally talking last night about how we need to start finding some good soup recipes. It's like Half Baked Harvest knew because when I went to Instagram, she had shared a recipe for a Spicy Italian Pesto Noodle Soup. Umm...YUM! I can't wait to make this when the temperatures drop a little more!

One of my favorite fashion items in the whole world is a faux fur coat. Now, I don't get to wear them too often living in Florida but I still love them. Julie from Sincerely Jules shared one of my new favorite fur coats of all time on her Instagram this week that I'm really tempted to buy. Florida seriously needs to cooperate with my fashion needs! Ha!
