First H&M Online Purchase

One of my dreams was to have Audrey Hepburn's apartment from Breakfast At Tiffany's, which Cosmopolitan just reported the building is for sale for a few bucks... ($8 million to be exact, anyone have a few extra dollars to send my way?).

Anyways, I figured since I'll probably never actually have that exact apartment, I would settle for a Breakfast At Tiffany's inspired decor.  And so I'm starting to plan, and collect items to do so.  Thankfully, H&M had two products in their home collection that is the perfect starting point.

The best part?  These 2 items cost less then $15, now if only the actual apartment was in that price range.

I don't normally wear sleep masks at night, but I couldn't resist when I saw this Breakfast At Tiffany's inspired sleep mask on the H&M website.  And for $6.95, I knew I wanted to include it my bedroom decor.

I had also been looking for a cute plate for my nightstand, but never found one I loved instantly.  This H&M Ceramic Plate was exactly what I was looking for, and only cost $4.95.  I love the different eyelashes, and it's the perfect size to keep some of your smaller items in like a lip balm, or earrings.

As for the rest of my bedroom decor, I'm going to take my time to find those perfect pieces, and to repaint my dresser (something I've been wanting to do for years).  However, these 2 items are the perfect start.

Halloween Potluck

Ugh,  don't get me wrong, I enjoy when my office throws potluck's/parties.  I'm starting to enjoy it more since I volunteered to help plan these events.  There is one thing I hate though.... deciding what to bring.  I'm always afraid my co-workers won't like what I made, that I'll make the same thing as someone else, that I won't make enough....etc.  And of course the cost of the ingredients... I see dishes I want to make and then I look at my bank account *insert Womp Womp hehe*.

So this past weekend I have been scouring Pinterest for pot luck ideas... here are some I'm considering. (click on the images to take you to the sources)

Pretzel Hershey Kiss treats

I've actually made these before with just M&M's for Christmas last year.  They're kind of obnoxious to make but it's a wallet friendly option.  Also a time friendly dish that can be made a few days in advance.

RITZ Spiders recipe

Another budget friendly, but maybe a bit too... young.  Granted I'm a kid at heart... but doesn't mean everyone is.

Potluck Pepperoni Bread Recipe

I've actually had this Pepperoni Bread at another holiday gathering and I loved it.  It's definitely budget friendly and time friendly!!!

Those are the top three for now.... can't deny I am also considering just picking up the classic pre-made Pillsbury Halloween Sugar Cookie.  Hopefully today I'll get a better idea of what other people are bringing.

High Five for Friday!!1

Woah, I haven't done a High Five for Friday post in a while, so lets do one shall we?  It was actually a pretty decent week...despite the dentist appointment on Thursday.  CAN YOU BELIEVE IT'S ALREADY THE END OF OCTOBER!!!!  As always I am linking up with Lauren at Lauren Elizabeth for this weeks High Five for Friday!!

  1. My mini makeup haul. I know that happened last week/weekend, but it was still a top moment in my week.

  2. I had ordered the Bourjois Health Mix Foundation a little while ago, and finally gave it a try this week! I'll review it more later.

  3. Birchbox of course needs to be included on this list, simply for the fact I got a Beauty Blender.

  4. I joined Planet Fitness. YEY!

  5. Fall seems to be back in full swing.  After temperatures dancing between warmer and cooler it was nice to for it to finally feel like true fall.
Hope you all have a fun weekend!!!
