Halloween T-Shirt from The Top Tees

Halloween movie shirt

I received goods in exchange for this post but all opinions are completely my own.

Halloween is my favorite holiday, so I've been wanting a Halloween Graphic Tee for a while. I finally got one from a company with super cute and unique graphic tees. The company is called The Top Tees and they sell their shirts on Etsy.

I'm a sucker for graphic tees, but I really can't get over how fun the ones from The Top Tees are. They had so many designs I really loved, but my absolute favorite was their Halloween Shirt that has Halloween movie names printed on it.

Hocus pocus shirt

The shirt says "Hocus Pocus Halloweentown and Beetlejuice". These are 3 of my all-time favorite Halloween movies! Every year we watch Beetlejuice on October 1st, Hocus Pocus on October 31st and Halloweentown sometime during the month of October. I was so excited to find a shirt with these 3 movie titles since there are plenty of other movies they could have printed on the tee.


I chose to get mine in maroon and it comes with black writing on it. The shirt is crazy soft and so comfortable. I got a size small, which is my usual size. It is unisex sizing. I would definitely say that it's true to size and I loved the relaxed/loose fit. If you want your shirt to be tighter, then you could go down a size. Bonus- this shirt is now on sale for just $17.59!

I wore my new shirt this week to the Halloween Ski Lift at Sundance. It was really fun to wear a Halloween shirt to a Halloween event! I paired it with some skinny jeans from American Eagle and my white vans. It got pretty cold though, so I did eventually have to put my jacket over the shirt. I'm excited to wear the shirt again on Halloween this year.

Halloween ski lift

The Halloween Ski Lift is a really fun October activity. Adam and I went on it 3 years ago and really enjoyed it. We weren't able to go the last 2 years, but we made sure to go this year. They're open until Halloween (closed on Sundays). Their hours on Monday through Thursday are 7-10pm and Friday and Saturday 7-11pm.

Riding the ski lift is really fun, but it's also very cold. Bundle up and bring some blankets to stay warm. I also have to warn you, it's somewhat scary. I wouldn't recommend taking little kids, but it's very fun for a date night.

I also got a second graphic tee. It's the Can't Touch This Shirt with cactuses on it. This shirt is so spunky and has so much personality. I love my cactus plant, so of course this tee was great for me. I got a size small crewneck and it costs $23.99. They also have a V-neck version of this tee. It is a unisex tee.

It says "can't touch this" on it and has 3 different cactuses. One is multi-colored plaid, another is leopard print, and the last one is a light green with little blossoms on it. This shirt is also really soft and comfy.

My other favorite tees in their shop right now are the My Favorite Color is Christmas Lights shirt, the Come We Fly shirt, and the Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas sweatshirt in maroon.

The Top Tees are based out of Ohio and started selling on Etsy in 2017. This shop accepts exchanges if you don't love your tee or if it doesn't fit. They do not provide refunds though. If something is wrong with your order, just contact them to have it fixed.

Follow them on Instagram @thetop_tees for styling inspo and to see new designs.

I have fallen in love with this company and know that you will too if you order one of their shirts. They would be a great gift for friends and family this holiday season!

It's no secret that I love unique graphic tees! I found another tee shop that I can't get enough of. It's called BK Design Store.

They have a huge selection of graphic tees and tank tops. They have everything from Disney tees to Halloween tees, to just funny tees. When I went through all of them it was so hard for me to choose just one.

I had 4 favorites, but ended up deciding on the Monster's University Graphic Tee. Monster's University is one of my two favorite Pixar movies (Coco is my other fave). I love the idea of sporting a shirt from one of the cutest movies.

It will also be super fun to wear this shirt to Disneyland or California Adventure next time we go! This shirt has a lot of color options. I chose to get the dark heather option because I love grey. I think it's a color that looks good on everything and goes with so many different things. I did also like it in navy though.

I got my usual size, a size small, and it fit great. I love the relaxed fit and was so happy that the shirt is true to size. The shirt is 100% cotton and it is so soft and comfortable. One of the biggest pros of this shirt is that it's only $16! Such a steal!
BK Design Store's t-shirts are made in the U.S. and are handmade. They usually ship in 1-5 days.

My other 3 favorite t-shirts from this shop are their Mickey Cactus Shirt, their Trick or Treat Yoself T-Shirt, and their The Future is Vegan Shirt. All of these ones are great prices too and come in a lot of color options.

This shop ships worldwide and is located in Detroit, Michigan. They're running a great deal right now where you can buy 3 t-shirts and get the 4th one for free!

Kuwahara pumpkin patch

I recently wore my Monster's University T-Shirt to the pumpkin patch! We went to Kuwahara's Pumpkin Patch in Draper, Utah. They had so many pumpkins! Adam and I couldn't believe how many they had. It's nice to go a little earlier in October so that the pumpkins aren't all picked over.

The pumpkin patch has these really cool walls of pumpkins that they setup. It's the perfect spot to take a picture!

Pumpkin decorations

We had so much fun taking pictures with the walls and choosing our pumpkins that we'll carve on Halloween. The weather was so nice while we were there too. I wore my new Monster's University shirt and a fleece zip-up from Old Navy and was warm enough, but not too warm.

It's so much fun getting out during October and doing all of the fall activities. I've always loved wearing a new shirt when we do activities and my Monster's University shirt was just perfect!

You can purchase Monster's University here and Monster's Inc here. They are fun movies to watch during Halloween time!

My favorite songs from the list are Monster Mash and Day-O. I love Monster Mash because in elementary school on Halloween we always did a parade in our costumes for our parents and I remember that being the first song they played every year.
I love Day-O because Beetlejuice is such a great movie and the dinner scene with that song is one of my favorites in the movie.

The Painted Nest: Fall Decor Signs

Happy fall sign

I received goods in exchange for this post but all opinions are completely my own.

I can't get enough of cute signs to decorate with for holidays and seasons. I only have a few fall decorations and have been looking for more to add to my collection this year.

I found a really fun, unique wood sign company called The Painted Nest that had the perfect piece for me. I looked through their fall sign collection and loved so many items.

I ended up choosing their framed sign that says Happy Fall Y'all. I love the wood frame on it. It gives it such a rustic vibe.

The sign itself is white with black writing. The fonts used on it are so fun! The words 'happy' and 'fall' are in a cursive font and 'y'all' is in a different font that complements the other really well.
I setup my new sign on an end table and put some pumpkins on the sides to give it even more fall vibes. I got both of the pumpkins at Hobby Lobby about 5 years ago. They also have really cute and affordable décor there. One pumpkin is zebra print and the other is leopard print.

My other favorite item they sell is the Hey There Pumpkin sign. I think that saying is so cute! I also really like their black sign that says There's No Place Like Home.

The Painted Nest's signs would be a great gift to give to your loved ones for their birthdays, Christmas, or just because.

Lettering decals

They also have a lot of cool, vinyl decals that you can put on things. I know I'll be using a bunch of them for some upcoming crafts. I really love the Trick or Treat one and the You Grow Girl one. The trick or treat one would be fun to use for a Halloween wood sign. I'd love to put the You Grow Girl one on a planter. Sadly, I don't have any planters that this would work on right now.

The Painted Nest is owned by mother-daughter duo Kristy and Kelsey. They live in Oregon, where they hand craft their signs. They love to create wood signs that are unique and are perfect for your home.

Halloween movies to watch in october

Fall is my favorite season of the year. I love decorating for fall and leaving my decorations up from September till Thanksgiving. One of the best parts about fall is watching all the Halloween movies. I set out some of my Halloween movies with my decorations so I can be sure to watch them all!

We watch most of our Halloween movies during Freeform's 31 Nights of Halloween, but we still own a few of the movies that are our favorites or that they don't play often. I believe we got all of the ones in this picture from Target and at really good prices.

On their website you can get Hocus Pocus for $15.99. I saw it for cheaper in the store though, somewhere around $10. They have Beetlejuice for $4.99, Tower of Terror for $7.99, and The Haunted Mansion for $4.99.

Hope you all have a great fall and Halloween!

Crisp Decor- Cute Ceramic Plates

Decorative plates

I received goods in exchange for this post but all opinions are completely my own.

I found some really cute ceramic plates recently from Crisp Décor. I love using plates that has some sort of design on them instead of just being one color.

The plates I got are their Creative Black and White Ceramic Plates. I got 2 of them that have a zig-zag, triangular pattern on them. You can get the whole set for just $19.98! That's such a great deal for fun plates.

Black and white plates

They're both black and white and so unique. I love how they don't just look like your average plates. They are 8 inches and perfect for serving dessert.

The plates are microwave safe and dishwasher safe. They are not oven safe though. They are made of ceramic. The plates are white and have black designs on them.

Small plates

My other favorite dinnerware set of theirs is the Hand Painted Glaze Ceramic Plate. There is a bigger one that is blue with a white design and a small white one with a black design.

Crisp Décor sells a lot of other types of products as well. They sell home décor, tableware, kitchen items, bed and bath items, lighting, and kids products.

Other items they have that I love are their Marble Base Table Lamp, their Modern Vase with Bronze Rim, and their Porcelain Bathroom Accessories Set. Everything they have is so classy and sleek.
Crisp Décor aims to sell items that are modern and timeless. The quality is really good and they have the cutest pieces in their collection.

A really big perk for me was that they have free international shipping! I know I don't like to pay shipping, so I loved this.

Vegan sugar cookies

I love to bake, but I don't always take pictures of what I bake because I don't think I have the cutest plates. That's not the case now that I have these Crisp Décor plates though!

On these plates are my absolute favorite cookies. They're vegan sugar cookies. I wrote a blog post a while ago with the recipe here. They take a while to make, but are so worth it and I loved how they looked on my new plates.
