To kick start off my magnificent Monday I decided to dedicate the time to explain some of my amazing fall festivities this week and some fun I have in store for Halloween.
Friday and Saturday I will be celebrating two different Halloween events. One of them being downtown! Super excited for the two costumes I have to wear - more details on that later! If you have me on Snapchat or Twitter @xoxgenaxox ; than you would have seen a sneak preview for both of my costumes when Alla was over. We ordered both of our costumes together Oct 7th and they FINALLY came in.
Time to talk about my fun fall & pre-Halloween festivities
SMOQUE N' BONES
Girls night out given a brand new meaning. Megan, Dora and I had not had a girls night since Makimono in the summer time. Needless to say, it needed to happen. I decided to take charge and find some new things to try/do and see. I stumbled across Smoque N' Bones on IG and found a blog posting on Casa Loma's haunted house and figured my little crazies/ Halloweeners would love this as much as me. Plus - us girls love our food when we are together.
At Smoque's we got the privillege of sitting at the Chef's table - Alex both head chef and owner is so great. We instantly hit it off with him and he kept supplying us with extra meat, drinks and sides because he enjoyed our vibe. Plus, I think it couldn't hurt that there were 3 girls front and centre making all the jokes so he had his fun fill too...we are pretty amazing. "You girls were the highlight of my night, come back anytime". 💁🏻
If you haven't tried this place - I highly recommend it. My top 3 favouite sides were the: mac n cheese, cornbread and brussel sprouts. The app that won the girls and I over was the rib tips 😱👅. As for the meat - definitely get the beef brisket. We ordered the sample platter and of all the meats - that one was our favourite. Okay I honestly cannot leave out the corn and sweet potato waffle fries. I honestly ate the fries to myself.
The haunted house I was especially pleased with as the website gave it a whole different approach to what it would be like. Dora and I figured we would just be touring around the beautiful castle - little did we know it was a huge haunted house with ghouls hiding in every corner. For those who have me on snap - you definitely heard my scardy cat screams - a few of you actually wrote me back on one snap in particular and called me that! 😸 Unfortunately, my cell phone died during the fun but I decided I get to just have this experience and fully enjoy it so perhaps a blessing in disguise. My girl's sent me a few pictures as well!
Come Sunday, me and Alla decided to go pumpkin picking. We wanted to buy our pumpkins so that for Tuesday night we can decorate them in prep for Halloween!
Of course - pumpkin picking called for fun fall outfits and pictures. @Conveythemoment is one of my favourite bloggers. I have recently loved my fashion blogger mamas, partly because they are the epitome of what I aspire to be as a mom. I dedicated a post to miss Eleni and MaryLauren <click me> to see that post.
If you love mama fashion bloggers please check out:
These are other ladies I have been following for a while now (as seen on who I follow on IG - sometimes it goes in order of timeline so you could
get the jyst of who and when). Recently Cara has been my gym motivation. I want to be a mom that incorporates style, fashion, travel and fitness. #mamagoals.
As per usual, side tracked. Conveythemoment was my inspiration for my fall outfit. I purchased the scarf she wore in a fun fall fashion post and decided this was going to be my go to fall scarf this year, which, it has.
Picking pumpkins was so much fun, also getting to walk around the corn maze, see the children having so much fun, and to conclude the night with a bird pooping in Alla's hair! 😂😂 I keeled over bursting into laughter fits - she was not impressed! Apparently, it's good luck says my mama and that she has to go play a lottery ticket. We have our pumpkin decoration ideas in place I am sooooo excited to show with you all our final products!
I hope everyone has an amazing week, we all deserve smiles and laughter! 💕
