Friendsgiving 2017

Friendsgiving 2017

Eddie and I hosted our 2nd annual Friendsgiving celebration over the weekend, this time packing 10 people into our lil living room! We had so much fun, and it never felt too crowded - just super cozy, lots of floor pillow loungin'. This year I was super low key with the planning of the table setting. Whereas last year I went out and bought lots of new things (glasses, plates, table runner, punch bowl, candlesticks, etc), this year I didn't buy a single thing other than flowers. I've been trying to declutter our space, and am starting to be really picky about what I bring into our apartment - with a 700 square foot space, there's really no room for random or surplus items that aren't going to be used regularly. I also just recently donated an entire car's worth of things we weren't using anymore to our local Goodwill, and I still have more closets to clear out - eek! So this year I reused a lot of things from last Friendsgiving, but changed a few key elements so that the table still felt new and fresh.

Black & Blooms Turns 1

Black & Blooms Turns 1

It's bonkers to me that yesterday was the one year anniversary of when I set Black & Blooms live. What started as just a lil creative outlet and simply a way to get my photos off my computer and out into the world, has turned into this amazing community where I've met some of the most talented individuals, many of whom are now good friends. The past year has had its ups and downs as I've navigated this blogging world that I really had zero clue about starting out - mostly ups though, and it's all thanks to people like you, who take time out of your day to follow along and read my posts or follow my journey on Instagram, always leaving me the sweetest messages and making me feel so supported - I'm very thankful to you for that! I wanted to share a few things I've learned this past year, and tips for anyone who's been thinking of starting their own blog.

Halloween Costumes Past & Present

Halloween Costumes Past & Present

As my 3 year old niece once repeated for an hour straight until we put the movie on for her, "I wantttt to waaaatchhhh MOAAANNAAAA!" I'm so happy there are finally more Disney princess films with strong females that kick butt, whose main storyline isn't falling in love with a dude who saves her from whatever trouble she gets into. Seriously, how cool is Moana?? I cry every time I watch the movie/listen to the soundtrack, that music hits me hard! So obvi I knew what one of my Halloween costumes had to be this year.

Pumpkin Pickin at Mr. Bones

Pumpkin Pickin at Mr. Bones

Pink pumpkins are a real thing and I'm HERE for it! Eddie and I went to the supes cute Mr. Bones for our pumpkins, located right near us here in Culver City. We went around dinner time on a week day which I would highly recommend - totally relaxed, not a lot of people. During the weekends I've heard it's packed to the gills. Plus, you have to pay an entry fee on the weekends - during the week it's free. Keep an eye peeled for celebs while you're there, it's a real hot spot in this town believe it or not! There's a lil petting zoo with baby goats, and lots of fun photo opps for the bbs (and adult bbs too) - I plan on going again this week and bringing my niece with me!
