Last night Alex & I gave up our Pumpkin carving kit, and we decided to turn things up a notch with our painting skills. Instead of doing the usual and carve a pumpkin, we really wanted to do something completely different and not as messy. Carving pumpkins can become a very messy date-night, and I wasn’t looking forward to cleaning up all of those guts! Which is why I came up with the idea of turning it into a painting sesh; and honestly it was the BEST idea EVER!
At first Alex was complaining that he isn’t a good painter, but I mean, its not like it was a competition 😂 and he actually did a very good job! I just wanted this to be something fun & relaxing, so we opened up two Red Stripes 🍻, baked a pizza 🍕& got our painting on. In all honesty it was so relaxing, I don’t know if it was the fact that we had Sam Cooke playing in the background or if it was all the painting that was going on, I just felt like we took it easy & enjoyed ourselves fully. I’ve heard that painting can be therapeutic, because it allows the mind to focus on the images at hand and nothing else. The focus on one central topic relieves stress on the mind, and in turn relaxes the body. So this date-night was perfect after a long work-week (for me at least, because poor Alex had to clock-in today).
It’s always nice spending time together, but also finding unique things to-do from the comfort of our home, plus a super inexpensive date-night! You honestly don’t need much; except a few painting brushes, two pumpkins, a couple of acrylic paint kits & some Sam Cooke playing in the background! Oh & of course you’ll also need some cute ideas/designs 💡 for your pumpkins, Alex & I looked up on Pinterest “Pumpkin Painting Ideas” & there was more than a million ideas/designs to choose from!
Casa Lizano is officially ready for Halloween 👻 with our cute pumpkins 🎃 that are giving us all the Disney vibes! We hope you all can enjoy some cute/fun pumpkin decorating during this spooky season & don’t forget to give “pumpkin painting” a try; ya’ll will thank us later! -Enjoy
Now that it’s officially Fall🍂, not only can we bring out all of our dark-toned clothing + leopard printed sweaters, but we can also plump our lips with some cute Fall Lippy tones! And I’m all for it; I personally enjoy wearing darker tones on my lips, because I feel like they look best with my skin tone. So you can definitely always find me rocking a few of my fave beige-toned Lippies all year round, but especially during this time of the year!
When leaning towards to the beige-pallets, I always try to purchase Lippies that will be long-lasting + with a matte finish, I just feel like the matte finish always makes the lips look so much nicer (although they can usually dry up your lips). A good recommendation for keeping your lips looking flawless & not dry, would be that once you remove the matte lipstick, always try to apply chapstick or ointments after removal. This will help your lips feel refreshed & smooth, so whenever you do decide to reapply Matte Lipstick your lips won’t look chapped.
Now that I’ve poured all the deets , here’s a little list of some great Lippies that you just gotta have for Fall of 2019 :
It’s officially Fall Ya’ll, and I couldn’t be any happier! Fall truly is a wonderful time of the year, besides Christmas, it’s like once that clock hits Fall O’clock everything is much nicer. I guess it’s because it means that the Holidays are much closer, and people are finally getting into a much merrier mood! Although we don’t really get to experience all of what Fall has to offer down here in South Florida, we as true Miami-ans, really try to savor in the little things about Fall. From decking out our homes with Pumpkins, to eating anything & everything that contains Pumpkin Spice and wearing flannel shirts with our ankle boots! We honestly don’t waste any time when it comes to Fall!
So, I thought what better way than to celebrate the fact that it’s officially Fall, than with a “Fall 2019 Bucket List”! This way Ya’ll can get some cute/fun ideas for this years Fall, I personally feel like sometimes it’s hard to find time for myself and my family when working 9 long hours 6-days a week, so whenever I make lists and schedule things in that I’d like to-do, it definitely becomes much easier for me to accomplish them, which is why I’ve made it a habit to write things down!
So with no further ado, here’s the 2019 Fall Bucket List!
