I’ve been terrible about getting mid week mani posts up for you guys. My nails have, unfortunately, been ignorned lately, I’m lucky if there’s a non-chipped coat of paint on them.
Since I haven’t done any Halloween nail art to share with you guys, I’ve gathered together a few of my favorite looks, for you to try out yourself. From I-can-do-that simple, to how-do-they-do-that advanced, these are all perfect to finish off your Halloween look!

You know the feeling when you look around your house and it’s such a mess that you contemplate just moving out and starting all over. Ya, that. Dishes were pilled up, the showers and bathtubs needed to be scrubbed, and there were sticky handprints everywhere. I needed a break. Even if just for the night, I had to get away from my house.
The 2nd annual San Antonio Fashion Awards have come and gone, and I can’t tell you how fabulous of a night it was! SA’s fashion, beauty, art, music (the culture scene in general) came together to support and recognize each other. The sold-out night speaks volumes to how wonderful this community of people is, and all the talent and passion we have here in San Antonio.
I had the best time getting to be a part of it all, and am forever grateful for being nominated as fashion blogger of the year, both years of the awards’ existence. I’m already ready for next years awards to arrive!
Here’s a confession: a kinda hate carving pumpkins. Like, avoid it at all costs. So every time Halloween comes around, and the minis want to go pick and decorate their own pumpkins, I bust out paint, stickers, glue, jewels…anything but a carving set, to let them still have fun and get creative, but to save me the mess and hassle that comes with carving.
If you follow along on my instagram, you know that this year, I’ve rounded up some of the cutest no-carve pumpkins I could find, to share with all of you. Scroll through to see each one, then click over for tutorials or free printables, for your favorites. I guarantee that you’re going to find at least one that you absolutely adore!
*thank you to SeaWorld for inviting us out for the day
The minis and I have had such a fabulous weekend! This time of year, when the San Antonio weather cools down (from high 90’s to high 80’s), we’re out and about as much as possible. We spent all day Saturday, downtown at Chalk It Up, and all day yesterday at SeaWorld. This mama’s exhausted, but we’ve been having the best time!
*Thank you to cyclebar for sponsoring today’s post
This past Sunday you guys showed up to join me for a free cycling class at San Antonio’s new Cyclebar. I had a blast hosting this little workout party for you all; what an amazing place! All the amenities (plus, first class free), the lights, the music, the energetic instructors, this is such a fun, and motivating way to get your workout in.
Scroll through to get a look into our morning, and if it looks like something you’d like to try, you know I’ve got you covered. Read all the way through to win a 5-class pass that I’m giving away to one lucky Champagne Taste reader who’s ready to pedal their butt into shape (literally)!
