I could not be more excited for all the Fall vibes to be rolling in! Now for the weather to just hop on board here in Florida.

Lovelies, the spooky season is upon us here at Disney and I am so here for it! You better believe I was there on the First day for all the fall festive goodies. September 15, 2020 kicked off the season with all the Fall decor and yummy seasonal treats, along with super rare character sightings. I got it all in here for ya.





DECOR


I was so excited to see all the festive themed Mickey pumpkins and the cutie cute scarecrows upon arrival. As I was getting to the toll booths that morning I was nervous, because there weren't the big blow up Mickey and Minnie pumpkins. I had a feeling already then that I was going to be let down, but I kept high hopes.


Walking up to the Magic Kingdom, again in front of the train station there's usually a huge Mickey pumpkin, and no pumpkin... Still holding out hope. Then when I got in to see the flag pole hub and no scarecrows were around I knew they didn't go all out this year. I was so sad about this, because the decor makes me so happy. I truly believe it's for them to try and keep crowds down for physical distancing regulations because you know people would gather and not pay attention to their spacing. Shoot it's already hard enough when it comes to merchandise keeping those 6 feet between parties, so I get it, but I really wish there would've been more.


They do have the Mickey pumpkin wreaths up on the light poles all along Mainstreet USA and the Castle hub. So at least we get a little more of the Fall vibes from them.










TREATS


So many yummy seasonal Fall treats this year. I couldn't get them all in on this visit. Two of the main goodies I wanted was the Mickey Pumpkin Balloon popcorn bucket, which I was able to get! It's $18 and can get the popcorn in it or separate. They also have an Oogie Boogie bucket that's really fun for Halloween, also $18.


A new hot item this year is the Madame Leota sipper, and of course they're already sold out. I was so upset when I found this out after standing in line for 30mins. Luckily it was only 30mins and not an hour thanks to the one cast member who was checking the line for our order requests. Now I know the sipper came out like the week prior, but come on sold out and for the season... that is ridiculous and it's all due to the dumb ebay resellers. I seriously am so over them. They've been reselling merch for forever now for an up charge, but lately it is EVERYTHING! All the ears and all the special seasonal merch, it is insane. The ML sipper only is $15 at the park, but good luck finding one on ebay for under $50.


The other sweet treat I did try last Tuesday was the Constance's For Better or for Worse Wedding Cake. First, the look gets a 100! It's super pretty and detailed. A tripled tiered miniature wedding cake with white pearls and teal sparkles, along with a chocolate axe to slice through the goodness. The inside is a citrusy vanilla cake with a raspberry bavarian buttercream. The cake was very moist and had a great combination of flavors. If you're not a fan of citrus, then I wouldn't really recommend you trying. I liked it, but could def tell it was citrusy. You can get it from The Liberty Square Market for $6.29.


There's a few more tasty treats I'm eyeing to try, so stay tuned to my IG stories for my visits coming up at the end of the month!

CHARACTER CAVALCADES


The things that made my heart most happy, the characters all dressed up in their Halloween costumes and the Villains taking over the parade routes. OMG y'all seriously don't know how much of a big little kid I am I don't think...


I absolutely love and always have loved watching the parades. Right now Disney isn't having their typical large parades. Instead they're showcasing miniature character cavalcades. Snd they do not disappoint! Yes, they are small. It's only one float that strolls down Mainstreet USA, but it fills my heart with joy seeing those characters. For Halloween they have some super cute ones too. They have Pooh and friends dressed in costumes on the trolly, then there's the Nightmare Before Christmas one with Jack, Sally, and Oogie. We can't forget about the Villains taking over which is so fun andddd they have the "Boo to You" Mickey float that is amazing. Mickey and gang are all dressed in my Halloween costumes and they're just the cutest.



I actually vlogged the entire day for all the festivities! So if you wanna see for yourselves how cute all the characters were and get those fall magic feels, take a peak HERE

Have no clue what to wear or what's going to be in season? Don't worry, I got you lovelies covered!





Transitioning from season - season is exciting, but it can also be hard. Not knowing what the "In" look is going to be. Well let me tell you lovelies that there's a lot of style and looks that are going to be hot for the fall and there is going to be one that you can relate to, I know it.




COLORS


Chartreuse, Marigold, and Rust. These are the hot on trend colors for the season. Very deep and rich in their colors. This is an easy way to be on trend yet keeping it a little more on the subtle side.







PATTERNS


Patchwork, Punky Plaids, and Argyle are some of the most desired prints for fall. With everything "Back to School" it totally fits the vibe. I'm so here for the argyle to make a come back and I'm always a lover of a good plaid piece.






DETAILS


Oversized Ruffles, Sheer Puff Sleeves and Overlays, Drawstrings, and Fringe make for great focal points in your looks. The ruffles won't be hard for me, but the fact that oversized ridiculous over top ruffles are in - I'm so here for this statement. Fringe is always so fun too. From it decorating your jackets or down the side of you pants, what's not to love about these fine little details.








STYLE


There's such an array of styles that you will definitely be able to find the perfect fit for you! From Heavy Metal metallics - soft whimsical Doll Dresses, it's all in baby. You'll see lots of Leather and in lots of colors, not just the classic black. Oversized and cropped everything are in. Pairing a cropped knit bralette with an oversized sweater or jacket will end up being a "look" of the season. No more shirts required it seems. And the most statement style of the season I can not personally wait to get rocking is the Victorian Style. YES! I am soooo here for this. Gossip Girl with a mix of a little more Vintage Royalty is so my jam and I'm so excited to see so much of this mix out this fall.











So now you know and it's time to update that wardrobe to turn heads this fall!

Channeling a little more of a spooky look as we make our way into Halloween season.





Lovelies, I know it's been a hot minute since I've shared a makeup tutorial with you. Don't hate me, tbh I really have been keeping it pretty basic and natural given the certain times we're in. Do not worry though, this girl is getting all the fall feels and adding some intensity to her looks again for the season. Also, I just got a new eyeshadow palette so I'm super excited to play with it 😉


This look I created the other week for a Halloween shoot I was a part of for Park Candy! If you're not sure who Park Candy is, they're the brand I get all my cutie cute Disney face masks from. Seriously, go check them out HERE. There are a ton of fun masks already out and the spooky season releases are coming out as we speak, so you won't want to miss out on those! Also, save 10% off with my discount: "LOVELAURA"


For the shoot we were doing little "Disney Bounds" for Nightmare Before Christmas and Haunted Mansion. I was so excited to dress up as Sally, she is so fun with all her patch work... which side note is a huge trend for Fall! I'll be sharing what's in for the season 2020 soon, so stayed tuned. So for her makeup inspiration I wanted something more smokey and intense. The dress I was wearing had more red brick hues to it then purple so that's why I choose to add this as the pop of color for my look.




The palette I used mostly to create this is the new Pat McGrath Labs "Divine Rose" and boy is she DEVINE! This is just the first look I'm bring you from creating with that palette. The colors in it are sooo beautiful. Like, I own a ton of eyeshadow palettes and really never would need anymore, but who are we kidding y'all know me and I always gotta be trying something new. This particular one is a little more on the pricey side, I'm not gonna lie to ya but the colors seriously in all honesty are amazing. So gorgeous and perfect for fall.

Only for you lovelies, get a sneak peak prior of some of the photos from the Park Candy shoot!







I'm not going to just tease you with this fun makeup look, of course I have a in full detail tutorial on on my youtube! Find it below to watch and learn how I got this look. Also, keep watch on my IG for more photo from the shoot... there's so many I have to share with you all🎃





Hope you lovelies are doing well and getting into the spooky spirits yourselves!
