13 Things on Etsy You Need If You Love Halloween

Today I am presenting you with some awesome Halloween finds from Etsy. You can find so many awesome items on Etsy. Plus, they’re sold by ordinary people like you and me, or people trying to grow a business, as opposed to big-time companies, which is awesome. I always like supporting the little people. I am dying to have everything on this list!

Cool Halloween Finds

264

I am quite the homebody, so you rarely find me going to stores. I much prefer online shopping in the comfort of my own home. However, I got the urge to stop by Target on my way home yesterday just to see what Halloween stuff they had out. I ended up getting a Boo throw pillow for the couch and a Happy Halloween sign for on the wall. I also got a gray faux fur throw for my bed (although not exactly Halloween related, but I’ll include it at the end of the post). There were quite a few other things I wanted but just didn’t have the money to spend at the moment. Here are some of the cool things I came across while I was there.

Uncommon Goods: Christmas Gift Ideas

Although I’m super excited for Fall activities and Halloween, I’ve already begun thinking about Christmas and brainstorming ideas of gifts that I might want to put on my Christmas list or to give to others. I generally like to do my shopping in October and November, before December even rolls around. I also prefer to do online shopping because it’s more convenient and you can find super cool items that you might not find in local stores.

I recently came across a site called Uncommon Goods, which has so many different cool items to choose from. Whether you are shopping for gifts for your mom, or trying to find something to buy for your dad (Guys always seem to be the hardest to buy for), this site definitely has something for everyone. One thing that I love about this brand is that they are cruelty free. They do not sell leather, feathered, or fur products. Another thing I love is that when you make a purchase, you get to select a non-profit organization to receive a $1 donation from them.

Below are just a few items that caught my eye.

100 Followers! + Shopping Trip

179

First, I want to say thank you to everyone who has followed me so far! I have now passed 100 followers! I opened this blog two and a half months ago, and I was nervous that nobody would be interested and I would be talking to myself. I didn’t think I would gain this many followers in such a short time. I do admit I get down on myself sometimes because I see other bloggers who started theirs around the same time (or even after me), and they have twice as many followers now. I have to remind myself that it’s not a competition or a popularity contest. As long as I’m having fun doing what I’m doing (which I am), then that’s what matters. Of course I want people to like and be interested in what I have to say. I think that’s something we all want. I’m just glad I’ve been able to continually grow my blog.

Yesterday, I went to the mall on a little shopping trip. I honestly can’t remember the last time I went to the mall. As I’ve mentioned previously, I’m a bit of a homebody. I also like shopping at stores that we don’t have in the mall here, so I tend to buy everything online. Well, I attempted to buy jeans online a while back too, and that didn’t work out so well. It’s a shame too because I absolutely loved those jeans, but despite being the size I normally wear, I couldn’t pull them up over my butt. From that moment, I decided any time I needed new jeans I would have to try them on before I bought them. That’s what triggered my trip to the mall. I’ve been wearing the same jeans for about a decade now. They got to the point where I couldn’t wear them much longer. There were big holes in the butt (where I had to wear a long shirt to cover it), and rips up the leg. I needed new jeans, asap.
