I just realized that we only have a week-ish until Halloween and I basically have not addressed it. BAD CAROLINE! I love Halloween but being sick most of last week totally threw me off.

Halloween is on a Tuesday and I’m going to spend the weekend before at a Lockhouse with my old roomies and a few other couples. I can’t wait and I have the coziest most adorable llama onesie for my costume this year! Plus I got a plush lion onesie for Kendall because it’ll likely be a little nippy out in the wilderness not in our apartment.

I’ve come to realize that my Halloween costume ideas from last year were very niche-y. I mean, if you’re into creepy female characters like I am (like, everyone from American Horror Story is a national treasure), that’s all well and good but this year I wanted to share some SUPER easy costumes that are more universal… and cheap. Seriously, the best kind of Halloween costume is the one you can put together from what you already have, a friend’s closet, and a fast fashion store.






Bonus for the extra lazy: onesies

Good morning and happy Friday! I’m settling into my new position so please be patient with me as I get into a routine and figure out where blogging fits in now. This week was also big in that Kendall’s mom was up from Mississippi and we got to show her our reception venue. I swear, the Mayflower is not only gorgeous but they have an amazing staff who bent over backwards to take care of us.

Lately on the The CaroLøve:

Wedding things have been kicking into high gear and I’m getting more and more excited every day. I’m considering doing a post on all the vendors I’ve come across that have made life easier, but in the meantime, ~*gold star*~ of the week goes to Minted for their address assistant. Seeing addresses from my friends roll in has been SO MUCH FUN! Our save the dates are custom from a local woman, but our invites will also be from Minted.

Big props to my girl Alyssa of Naturally Me for accomplishing a huge personal/ career goal. Go check it out for yourself!

We The Kings released a new version of their song Stay Young with a very special guest vocalist. And tell me if I’m crazy but does Travis sound like Michael Jackson a bit?

I’m super into energy and cultivating the type of energy you want to surround yourself with. We’ve all heard of spring cleaning, but maybe a little 2/3 of the way done with summer refresh will be good for you and your home. via Town & Country

I have been exploring more of the south since meeting my Mississippi man, especially falling in love with Savannah + New Orleans. I have to try to visit these 20 Places Every Southerner Should See Before They Die. via Town & Country

Chicken is the first thing I learned to cook for myself… well maybe besides eggs. But this Everything Bagel Chicken takes it to the next level. via Kitchn

I’m partial top OPI gel manicures in shades of light pink, but I am LOVING this back to school Crayola mani. via Smart School House

There is such a thing as Arsen Cat and I love him. (Doesn’t hurt that he looks SO MUCH like my former Catmate, Puck.)

Last but definitely not least (I wanted to end on this and separate it a little bit from my other links + sales) -I don’t think anyone is ever prepared to find out that they have cancer, but one young woman I know is facing it head on and with such a positive outlook. I am truly inspired by Rachel, and I urge you to check out her blog~ especially the I Want to Help link.

Have a great weekend!

My last day working at Pier 1 was early October. It happened to fall on the day when we received our first, and largest, Christmas shipment of the year. We’d been training for this since August- we knew the themes and had already dog-eared the Christmas goodies that we wanted for ourselves. I was thrilled that silver snow would be coming back as my favorite Christmas scent. I think this year’s version is called snowy birch– it’s on sale right now! From 5:45am to 3:30pm, in temperatures reaching the high 80s, I unloaded and piled up mountains of sparkly Christmas goodness and ended up with a nasty sunburn. While I don’t miss the wonky seasons of retail, I do miss that Christmas feeling in the store. Pier 1 knows how to do Christmas.

Now to the part that saves you money on your holiday decor: through Sunday, Pier 1 is offering 15% off regular-priced items and free shipping over $49 with the code 15FORME. I never decorate until after Thanksgiving, but it’s not to early to order your Christmas decorations. All my picks are under $50, and if you use ebates, you can earn cash back for purchasing anything from Pier 1 (and a ton of other stores) online!
