Saturday Link Love: Halloween Snack Edition

Every Saturday, I’ll be doing a Link Love post, inspired by Lauren Conrad’s Friday Favorites (check out her blog if you haven’t already). Here are my favorite internet finds for the week.

On Monday it is Halloween! How has the year past by so fast? Read below for our first ever Halloween Link Love.

  • Yum, skeleton cupcakes… I can’t help it. The best part about Halloween is the adorable snacks.

Have a safe and happy weekend. Remember if you are going out to a party, have a designated driver (read this with a mothering voice).
Happy Halloween!
If you don’t have a costume yet (cutting it close, don’t you think?) check out my post from earlier in the week on last minute (free) Halloween costumes.

DIY: Keeping a Goal Notebook

When I posted a video a few weeks ago on how-to feel better when you are feeling blue, a lot of you had questions about my “life notebook” or “goal notebook” that I mentioned. Here in this video I show you what is in mine so that you can make one of your own. It is a very simple process.

All you need to make a goal notebook is a binder (I like ones that you can put pictures in), paper, pens, pictures, and plastic paper protectors (optional). Of course, this is entirely customizable. I’m the kind of person that loves lists but if that isn’t for you feel free to make a notebook full of images, quotes, poems, etc. that inspires you.

Happy DIY! What inspires you to complete your goals?

Upcycle Candle Jars! DIY

Pinky helps me upcycle! 
I love finding new ways to upcycle used products (see how to upcycle Birchbox boxes here). I got this really cute Paula Deen “Fruit Pizza” candle (from my local super market) awhile ago and when I finished it off I didn’t want to plain old recycle the jar. Instead, I turned it into a battery holder! I recycle my batteries (they can be so bad for the environment) so I needed somewhere to hold them until I could take them to be recycled. All I did was clean out the candle and then tape a recycle symbol inside. 
If you’ve struggled with how to take out the wax in a candle, trust me and stick your candle in the freezer! I usually leave my candles in the freezer a few days and then am able to pop out the old wax easily. For stubborn candles where just freezing isn’t enough, use a knife to cut the wax in half (think like cutting a slice of pie) then that stubborn candle will know whose boss…
For more inspiration you can also watch my video on how I use candle jars to store school supplies and check out my review of Diamond Candles.  
Happy DIY! Send me pictures of how you have upcycled candle jars (or other objects) in the comments.
