Favorite Halloween & Horror Movies

Hi All & Happy (almost) Halloween!

In honor of the holiday, I decided to share with you some of my favorite Halloween & horror movies to bust out this week. Some from my childhood, some terrifying, but all excellent. I am not a fan of extreme gore that they try to pass off as “scary,” I’m looking for the horror movies that actually make me scared to go to sleep at night.

Don’t Look Under the Bed

The Nightmare Before Christmas

Fall Favorites

Hello

Hello Friends!

Fall is officially here in Michigan and I could not be more excited since it is my absolute favorite time of the year! In celebration, I thought I’d share some of my favorite things about fall and things that I am obsessed with at the current moment in time.

Chunky Cable knit Sweaters// They can be layered with an adorable pair of boots and jeans or just paired with leggings. My go-to place for amazing sweaters is J Crew!

Fleece Pullovers// Continuing the theme of comfy garments, I’ve always been a huge fan of your average crew neck and quarter-zip fleece, but I’ve never known love until I bought my Patagonia Snap-T Fleece Pullover. Okay, maybe that’s a tad over-dramatic, but, in all reality, it’s quite fabulous and I highly recommend checking it out!

Cider Mills// This really speaks for itself, the best fall past time in Michigan; donuts, caramel apples, and warm cider…. Nothing beats it!

Guacamole Chips// Okay, so it’s not quite fall themed, but they are one of my latest obsessions. If you enjoy tortilla chips and guac, you’ll LOVE the organic twist by Food Should Taste Good. I’ll admit, I was a tad apprehensive initially, but I ended up demolishing the whole bag with my friend. Yes, they are that good!

Quilted/Puffy/Fleece Vests// Last, but certainly not least, I find it quite essential to have, at least, one vest to sport during this time of the year. Vests are perfect for layering on particularly chilly days; it’s no surprise that my favorite comes from the store that holds my heart: J Crew!

What are some of your favorite fall things? Comment below and don’t forget, sharing is caring!

Allow Me to Introduce Myself….

Allow Me to Introduce Myself….

Hey! What’s Up? Hello!

Welcome to my not-so-new, but definitely improved blog: With Love, Koko Beth! I originally started this blog as a college freshman in my second semester with no idea what to write about or where to even begin. I started writing about my favorite fashion trends and designing different outfits, but after nearly three years of that, I decided I shouldn’t limit myself to only fashion, no matter how much I loved it. While I refuse to give up on fashion completely, I will now include my favorite foods, drinks, music, television, and whatever else I may want to share on my blog (yes, this includes politics and pop culture)!

To begin, I figured I would get you more acquainted with me by sharing a little bit about myself and including a few fast facts. My name is Kourtney, and I am a senior at Oakland University studying Communication and Public Relations. I am a member of the competitive dance team on campus, as well as an executive board member of my sorority. In my free time I enjoy shopping, Pinterest, spending time with my friends and family, traveling, dancing, eating, and blogging. Something about me that most people don’t know is that I am a HUGE history nerd and love documentaries.
