Mission #94, Day 1--Zendaya

I'll admit it--I'm a grown woman obsessed with Zendaya, a teenage celebrity.  My daughter is obsessed with her shows (Shake it Up and KC Undercover) and that is how I became "introduced" to her.  But it was her style, her poise, her fun-loving spirit, and, most of all, her very mature spirit of standing up to very controversial topics such as Black Lives Matter and self body love that really made me appreciate who Zendaya is.  I am very glad that Brielle is looking up to a young lady of this stature.  And thus, Zendaya becomes the star of this Mission Week.

Dear Frannie Friday--Best Blogs for Halloween Costume Ideas

Halloween is Monday (iknowright?).  So if you are still scrambling for a costume, here is the post for you.  Below are some of my favorite bloggers who all do Halloween better than anyone on the blogosphere.  From the simple to the extravagant, these ladies are sure to give you inspiration for a costume.

First up is my #1 favorite all time blogger, Jessica from What I Wore.  She has tons of Halloween ideas that stem from a few simple closet items to the exuberant, like below, corpse bride.  On her site, you are sure to find tons of inspiration.


As I mentioned earlier this week, Megan of TFDiaries has been showcasing a bunch of different Halloween costumes on her blog this month.  Here is one of my favorites--Chucky and his Bride.


Corilynn--I love her blog.  She is a mother of four, a clothing designer, a wife and her blog is nothing less than an inspiration sartorially and otherwise.  Of course, she rocks Halloween like none other.  I pinned this particular costume several years ago and it is still one of my most repinned pins on Pinterest.  So simple! 


Every year Keiko kills it with her Halloween costume inspiration.  She has a ton of ideas for a Halloween costume, including this one of Cruela DeVil which kills mine from last week (although to be fair, mine wasn't a costume, but instead a style inspiration).  And not only the costume, but Keiko will also show you how to do the makeup.


I often equate the blog A Beautiful Mess to that one really productive stay at home mom that you, as a working mom, hate their guts.  It is a wonderful blog that I am sure you have heard of with lots of DIY projects, recipes, and, wouldn't you know it, amazing Halloween costumes for individuals and the family.

Thursday Mixer--Black and White Striped Cupcake Skirt

I don't know why, but when I first saw this skirt I was obsessed with the different ways to wear it.  I ordered it online instantly when I knew it was on sale (thank you other bloggers who tell you when cute skirts are on sale!).  The funny thing, of course, when ordering things online is that you never really know what to expect.  I still love the skirt, but the fabric is so weird.  It is stiff and poofy, which is really fun but also can be very tricky.  

I paid $15 for it and have only worn it 3 times.  But I still call it a win because it is still a lot of fun to wear and also Blaire from Atlantic Pacific commented on one of these outfits on Instagram . . . so yeah.  We're practically best friends.

Wordy Wednesday--Hard Work

I've been working my ass off lately.  To be 100% honest, I am not a fan.  Not that I am lazy, but mama needs a break.  It is a blessing and a curse that my oldest son inherited my work ethic.  He too has been busting his hump for the last several weeks, especially since he turns 16 next month (!!!!!!) and is saving for a car.  The cool thing about that is that I got a text from one of his bosses telling me how much everyone there loves him.  #hearteyes  So this week, I will look at these words of encouragement about working hard.

Share the Covers--Me and Bobby McGee

Legit one of my favorite songs of all time.  It reminds me of my baby brother, an avid and talented guitar player, and every time it plays I picture sitting on the back of a pick up truck in the middle of nowhere just listening to him play.  He's such a hippie.

Here's the original by Janis Joplin . . .

And the cover by Pink . . .

Make it Work Monday #51

I have been a long follower of Megan's blog TFDiaries. I actually found her blog through Pinterest when I was looking for maternity style inspiration.  She is in New York (my dream) and her style is great!  I am a big fan of her gorgeous red hair and her posts are varied and inspirational--from beauty tutorials to food to her recent Halloween costume inspirations.  Be sure to check her out!
