1 Year of Raining Pineapples!!

Hello everyone! I know I’ve been kind of neglecting my blog recently, everything’s just been so crazy!! I did want to write a quick post just to say thank you to all of those that have liked, followed, commented, and helped me with my blog. Obviously I haven’t been spending to much time on it these past few months, but every time that I create a new outfit, or find something that’s just AMAZING, I immediately think “I could blog about this!!”. 🙂

Someday soon I will wake up and start blogging again, but for right now I’m just taking a short break to figure out my crazy life. 🙂 I’m considering writing a more personal/my life blog vs. fashion blog this summer, what do you think? Again, THANK YOU so much!!

❤ Sam

1. Pinterest!

Okay, so I’ve always loved Pinterest (who doesn’t?!) but for some reason I had never made an account until now! I just love discovering all of the ideas and tips. I already have quite a long list of DIY things to create, yummy treats to make, and tutorials to try.

2. Olympics!

I didn’t get to watch as much Olympics as I would have liked, but I still enjoyed every minute of it! From the awe-inspiring ice skating, to the crazy and incredible slopestyle, I love them all!

3. Scarves!

Whether it’s a cozy winter scarf, an infinity scarf, or a DIY scarf (I have the cutest DIY scarf tutorial coming up soon!), I think we can all agree that scarves are just amazing!

I know I had a fantastic February! How about you? Tell me in the comment section below!

OOTD: Valentine’s Day!

Now it’s time for my second Valentine’s Day post! There’s not much to explain, the title says it all! Here’s my fun, pink, outfit of the day!

The pink butterfly-sleeve top is from Meijer, and the Simply Vera Wang jeggings are from Kohls.

I didn’t wear many accessories, just a simple gold chain necklace and matching gold heels. I just pulled my hair up into a bun, and then added a little lip gloss to complete the look!

OOTD: Fall Fashion

Hey everyone! Today’s OOTD consists of my favorite fall fashion items: boots, sweaters, and scarves!

IMG_4031_2

I wore this amazing sweater from Kohls that I absolutely love! It keeps me warm and still allows me to move around comfortably. These jeans from Justice are also a favorite of mine.

IMG_4033

I didn’t wear too much for accessories, just a silver headband to add some sparkle and my favorite Taylor Swift scarf. The boots are from Target (sadly they’re not Uggs), even though they don’t have the quality of Ugg boots, they are still super comfy and cost much less!

6 Months Of Blogging! + October Favorites!

Hello to all of my amazing readers! First of all, the end of October celebrates the 6 month anniversary of Raining Pineapples! In these past 6 months I have achieved 55 incredible followers, over 200 likes, and nearly 700 views! So, a huge thank you goes out to all of you that have liked, followed, and visited my blog!

Now onto my October favorites! These are just a few things that I am absolutely in love with this chilly fall season.

1. Sweaters!

IMG_4034

It’s officially sweater weather! This year I couldn’t find any sweaters that fit me, so I borrowed one from my sister and also bought an amazing sweater from Kohls.

2. Halloween!

IMG_4018IMG_3943

There are two things I love about Halloween: costumes, and pumpkins. This year I had a very last minute costume, 60’s style hair along with a great faux leather jacket and skinny jeans. Kind of random, but I thought it worked pretty well. I also LOVE carving pumpkins. This year I just drilled holes all around my pumpkin, very simple but the result was fantastic!

3. Homemade Everything!

IMG_1294

Fact: Homemade anything tastes incredible! (As long as you follow a good recipe, and nothing catches on fire…). This month I have enjoyed yummy homemade cookies, cake, ice cream, and poppy seed muffins (my personal fave!), and I can’t wait to bake even more!

Well, that’s it for today! Have a splendid Halloween and don’t forget to like and follow my blog!
