It All Started.. In the summer of 2010 when two Southern California friends—Griffin Thall and Paul Goodman—took a college graduation trip down to Costa Rica. Between the stunning sunsets, killer surfing, cool beach towns and awesome people, it didn’t take long for Griffin and Paul to fall in love with the laid-back lifestyle…(Read more on how Pura Vida Bracelets became at this link: https://www.puravidabracelets.com/pages/story

Horror Icon Series

IMG_6788

I think by now some of you should know that I love horror movies and Halloween; I got a little inspiration from some of my favorite Instagram bloggers, @golden_aimeee, @disneylandmermaid, and @damfino, these three ladies love horror movies too, and not only that, but they have some great content on their pages ! (check them out).. So for my Horror Icon Series, I picked six of my favorite horror movie villains to rep on my shirt and used props that represented them in some way. I posted them every Tuesday in October as #TerrorTuesday on my Instagram page (@jamonicatierra). I also found the hashtag (#TerrorTuesday) from @disneylandmermaid IG page. The six Horror Icons I chose were: Michael Myers, Pennywise, Chucky, Leatherface, Freddy Krueger, and Jason Voorhees. I was so excited to do this project; getting creative is fun and what I love to do, so I hope you all enjoy !

IMG_7693

Monday, the 21st was my 26th birthday, and I had the whole week off from work, which I loved, and enjoyed ! Since I went to Halloween Horror Nights as an birthday gift to myself earlier this month, I really did not plan on doing anything else for my birthday except laying in my bed watching Horror/Halloween movies, and some of my favorite tv shows surrounded by snacks and wine; And that’s exactly what I did !

IMG_7659

IMG_7719

I kind of had myself a mini birthday photo shoot; I had fun doing this and being creative is something I love, so this was perfect ; With a couple of balloons from Party City and a cute simple birthday look, anyone can do this. Also those number balloons were $1.99 each, which is a steal !

Fun Fact: Pink and Turquoise are also my favorite colors.

“All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.”

IMG_8009

I watched the horror classic The Shining, and a Halloween/Horror favorite, Trick ‘R Treat, both are must sees by the way ! I also had some Pink Stella Rosa wine with some cheese, turkey, crackers, and grapes, just living my life lol.

Surprise from my siblings ! 

My brother and sister surprised me with more balloons and a cute little cupcake; They know I’m not much of a cake eater, so they just bought me something smaller, I still haven’t ate it yet lol. 

Birthday Cards !

I don’t know about y’all, but every Birthday card, Christmas card, etc. that I’ve received that I can recall, I’ve kept; I just feel weird just throwing them out, so why not keep them; Check out the Birthday cards I got this year ! 

Snacks and Halloween movies !

What’s Halloween season without watching a few Halloween classics and favorites. This whole week off, I’ve been in my bed watching Horror and Halloween movies; I love horror movies and I watch those anytime, but watching them during the Halloween season is more spookier. I still plan on watching more Halloween movies up until Halloween is over; Here’s a few that I’ve watched so far: Hocus Pocus ( a classic), Corpse Bride, Monster House, and A Nightmare Before Christmas. Of course I have more to watch; And as far as snacks go, I had my favorite, sweet and salty: Pretzels, Sour Patches, Peanut M&Ms, Snickers, and popcorn !

Halloween Decoration Ideas Anyone ?

IMG_1167

It’s finally October you guys ! My favorite and the BEST month of the year is here lol. I love Halloween, and Fall; And let’s not forget Horror movies; I mean I watch those year round, but hey watching them during October makes it even more awesome ! 

This will just be a quick post on me decorating my room for Halloween, and letting you guys know where I got my decorations from. Let’s start ! 

IMG_1179 (1)

This is a poster I had from last year and it was still in good condition; So why not use it ? I mean IT (2017) is one of my favorite horror films and Pennywise is a favorite of mine.. I  bought this poster from Wal-Mart for $5.00 and it looks good on my closet door.

IMG_1180

Now this Beware or Caution tape you can get from Dollar Tree as well; But I got this particular tape from Walmart, only cost me $0.98; It’s simple but an effective piece of decoration; This is on my other closet door. 

IMG_1198

This is my small table that is by my DVD rack and window ! I couldn’t wait to decorate this little section. Yes the table is small, but it is just enough lol… I got the ‘Hello Pumpkin’ mug from Marshalls, I believe it was $4.99; The ‘scary’ sign is from Dollar General, which costs me a dollar. The small, glitter pumpkin comes in a pack of three pumpkins from Target for $3.00, and the lights on the wall are from Dollar Tree (Yep $1.00)

Non-Halloween items:

Desk light : $5.00 from Five Below

Desk plant: $4.00 from Target

Picture Frame: $1.00 from Dollar Tree // Picture inside frame, found on Google.

Small Table: $ 5.00 from Five Below

These decorations are placed on my nightstand. I used a Starbucks Frappuccino glass bottle for the flower vase, and put some fall themed flowers from Dollar Tree; The candle comes from Bath and Body Works, which I got on sale for $14.95; The pumpkin on top was a free gift (it’s magnetic). The purple glittery light up skull (I have a few of these at work too) are from Dollar Tree. 

IMG_1207 (1)

Here’s another view of my flowers; The crystals are glow in the dark and they’re from Michaels, which cost about $4.99; I thought this was a nice touch lol; I also have another dollar sign from Dollar General, that says ‘Beware’. 

IMG_1201

Just a cute and simple pumpkin banner hanging behind my T.V. that I got from Walmart for $0.98. 

IMG_1154 (1)

This cute sparkly spider web came from Dollar Tree ! 

IMG_1200

Lastly in my window, I got this glass flask from Michaels on sale for $4.99 (which I put those glow in the dark crystals in ); I got the small Halloween sign from Wal-Mart for $2.98 and the glitter pumpkin came from Dollar Tree.

I know that it may look like my decorations are all over the place, but I like it like that ! They’re simple, and fun ! You don’t have to spend a lot of money to put up Halloween decorations, heck you can even reuse some from last year ! You can have fun and save money decorating for Halloween, and if you need suggestions, the stores I named above are great places to look and shop ! Thanks again boils and ghouls for reading ! Until next time !

“You Ain’t Never Had A Friend Like Me”

A few months ago, I found the cutest shirt and purse to wear for the Aladdin opening weekend; If the shirt looks familiar, its because Princess Jasmine wore it in Ralph Breaks The Internet. I went to the Disney Store and found both the shirt and the purse on the clearance rack, so of course I had to get them. If you guys aren’t familiar with Danielle Nicole, her bags are adorable especially the ones like the crossbody bag I have above. I’ll link her website below, definitely check out her website . Also I think doing flatlays may be my new thing 😉

Here are more pics of my outfit ! Which I loved by the way; I also wore jewelry inspired by the Aladdin movie from Hot Topic (I should’ve took pics)

If you had three wishes, what would they be ?

I would wish for a happily ever after with my true love, money, and more traveling ! And I know there are no extra wishes, but I would wish to meet the cast of Avengers Endgame. Tell me your three wishes below !
