Holler. I haven't done one of these posts recently, so I figured I'd fill you in on what my pals on Instagram see on a regular basis.

This is the bulletin board I created last week. We made the ghosts out of their footprints. This was so fun to make! This week we are creating a scarecrow for the school-wide contest. 

I've taken my love for cats to a whole new level. My Crochet Cat Coffee Cozy arrived from Sugar Junkie + I am obsessed with it.

I did some simple Halloween nail art that looks far more complicated than it was. Here it is [let each coat dry before applying another]: base coat, one coat of white polish, one coat of orange randomly placed on nails [stripes, half the nail, whatever you want - don't worry about it looking perfect, its getting covered up], + topped with black crackle. Super simple, as long as you are patient about the drying time.

My Hunter wellies arrived today! These babies were only $75 for the youth version, as opposed to the adult version for $135. I'm short + my size 7 feet fit in the size 6, with some room for fleece socks [which are way cheaper for the kids version as well]. I can't wait to wear them out + about. I was also eyeing the Cable Cuff socks over at Nordstrom tonight. I'll have to wait until my birthday to snag some more. I only bought these because I sold so much stuff on Instagram. Selling on Instagram is so much easier than eBay!

I am making some really awesome skull bracelets. They'll be up in the Etsy shop next week, for $15 each. If you want one before they hit the store, you'll save $5 PLUS get free shipping. If you want one, feel free to contact me.

If you're on Instagram, make sure to say stop by + say hello. You can find me on my two accounts: @stellarmichele + @closetshopaholic.


  1. I am loving your new boots! i really need some of those, it rains a lot in florida!

  2. I love that you are so prepared for autumn (and Halloween)! That Halloween-inspired manicure is the cutest idea. It reminds me of a pumpkin. I have some of the Crackle topcoat, so I might have to try something similar. Thanks for the inspiration!


  3. That coffee cozy is aweesome!!

    Major envy for the Hunter's boots, will never be able to afford it
