Lovely Finds: Happy Halloween!

Good morning and Happy Halloween to you!! I was never a big Halloween person until I moved into my new neighborhood, where the people get CRAZY! I don’t mean scary crazy, I mean bus-in-kids-on-hay-bales crazy! Last year, I purchased well over $60 worth of candy and was out in about an hour or so… which is nuts. So this year, I am prepared! We are throwing a little Halloween get-together, and I have bought enough candy (fingers crossed… I can fill that bowl at least 10xs… just pray for me!) to make it through the night! I am really hoping to not have to pretend we aren’t home by 8:00 pm… because these kids are seriously cute and they deserve the fancy candy!

Hope you have a fabulous and sugar-filled weekend!

ABD’s Fancy Friends: Chinchar/Maloney

Today’s Fancy Friends is all about Chinchar/Maloney and their beautiful rings!! As you know, I am a jewelry girl and have an affinity towards dainty, girly pieces. So when I was introduced to Chinchar/Maloney, I was instantly in love! Seriously, I think I drooled over their website for hours. And well, as you can imagine, they did not disappoint! A few weeks later I received the prettiest package filled with two of the prettiest rings! I now wear my CCM rings about every day! I love them! So, if I were you, I would STOP what I was doing and go pick myself up a couple! Trust me, you wont regret it!

P.S. If you think we may be besties and we just haven’t met yet…feel free to shoot us an e-mail and fill us in on what we are missing!

Primping with ABD: The Perfect Fall Lip

Good morning and happy Wednesday! Today we thought we would start something a little different! Don’t worry, ABD Styled will be coming back; but since you asked, we thought we’d finally share some of our beauty secrets with you! For our first installment, I wanted to share with you my favorite new Fall lip color! Manna Kadar cosmetics sent over a whole box of their products so I thought I would test them out for you! And sure enough I fell in love with their Lipstick + Gloss! I have a few other Manna Kadar things, but these two shades (Pucker Up and All of Me) are by far my favorite Fall products. Honestly, alone they are pretty, but when you double them up, they are stunning! I put the lipstick on first, and then topped it with the lip-stain and it instantly became my new favorite!

My Weekend Lookbook: October 25-26, 2014

 

Breakfast on the porch via Ashley Brooke Designs

Good morning and happy Monday to you! Here is just a peek at what I was up to this weekend…

Photo 1. It’s finally cooling down a bit here in the Sunshine State, and it is AWESOME!!! So naturally, we have started having pretty much every meal on the weekends outdoors, especially breakfast! Honestly, is there anything better than an early morning breakfast on your porch?

Photo 2. We spent Saturday night at my grandmother’s lake house. As always, it was breathtakingly beautiful. I honestly think it looks like something right out of a movie… I could sit on her back porch all day!

Photo 3. We have a big week over here filled with parties, potlucks, and celebrations… I figured I needed to get a head start on this week’s baking situation! I found a recipe for Pumpkin Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies on Pinterest last week that I was dying to try! And true to form… Pinterest never lets me down! These are DELISH!!

I hope your weekend was equally as lovely, but for now I am off to go get this week started! Cheers to an extra fabulous and productive week!! xx
