Happy Halloweeeeeeeeen!!!

I hope you all enjoyed your day, no matter what you did! Whether it be a big party or something low key, or even nothing at all, I hope it was good! 😀

Moi? I really didn’t do anything big…this evening I did hang out with my sister and mom at the pumpkin patch they work at, as I eyed the cool outfits and costumes people had on. Boooooooooooom.

The most exciting thing today was my outfit. I pieced it all together and I was essentially a goth version of myself, laden with spiders.

Pretty much I will find any excuse to wear gloves. AREN’T THEY NICE????

The spider pin is another lovely, unique creation from The Tote Trove!!! As I’m sure you know by now, I am a big fan of her accessories and this one paired perfectly with my Halloween ensemble. ♥ Just the right pop of color!

Some snap shots from this week, of NOTE!

COFFEE IN A LIGHT BULB…

IMG_5129

A LIGHT BULB. I am still talking about this thing, and still showing this photo to unsuspecting people.

“I drank Vietnamese coffee in a light bulb!” I say, ecstatically.

Okay, it’s not a real light bulb, but a plastic version of one! And the bottle is a good size (not super small like a typical light bulb). The adorable cookie next to it is a macaron. This place I went to – a boba tea shop called Sweet Lyfe – is like a dream come true. You can drink your beverage in a fake light bulb and eat a unicorn (or a narwhal!) macaron.

I went there with some super cool people who are alternative fashion enthusiasts (particularly Japanese fashion), and we all had a great time!!!

And then I stumbled upon this in the parking lot…

THE SCOOBY DOO VAN. That’s right; it was parked at the shopping center, being the absolutely perfect photo opportunity.  Whoever owns it did an amaaaaazing job bringing it to life!

Flower power… 🌸

Also, after wearing all black for just one day on Halloween, I’m already experiencing brutal withdrawals from pastels and bright colors!

Let the holiday season begin! See ya next time!

Welcome back to another Halloween-esque post to celebrate the month!  🎃 I want to show you my witchy new blouse that’s just perfect for this time of year!

IMG_4832

This was one of those tops that I took a real chance on. It was very unusual, which caught my attention when I found it on eBay. And with a click of the mouse, I ordered it – the future unknown. Would it look right on me? Fit right? It’s completely sheer and spattered with shimmer and puffy sleeves, so I didn’t know what to expect!

AND IT DIDN’T DISAPPOINT, FOLKS…

I LOVE IT. It’s fun, flashy, and interesting. The bell sleeves are my favorite detail. 😀 Isn’t it so witchy and fun?

SCARING MY NEIGHBORS (AND PEOPLE IN GENERAL): A FEEL-GOOD FRIDAY STORY

IMG_4841

I have a real knack for accidentally scaring people. I’m very light-footed and quiet in real life, so it’s common for me to walk up to someone without being heard and accidentally give them a scare.

Me: “Nice day out…”

Person: *jumps out of their skin*

Adults, small children… (I especially scare Mormon children, it turns out. Most people I know are surprised to find out I’ve gone to a Mormon church for 3 years. I randomly went one day and just…sort of kept going for 3 years and counting. I intertwine a lot of different  spiritual beliefs into my personal faith, so I’m spiritually a mix of things, but it’s nice to have a place to hear a good message, even if I don’t always agree with everything, ya know? 

But yeah, the Mormon kids are scared of me. It’s understandable, since I wear a lot of makeup, unusual outfits and I have huge hair, and they’re probably just not used to seeing that. And now my neighbors can be added to the list.

I was out front taking these photos, and I was bent down for a moment, out of sight. Then some people from the neighborhood walked by with their dog, and I stood up quickly. Now, I didn’t do that on purpose; it just sort of happened that way by accident, which is generally how it goes.

“Hi!” I said cheerily.

*traumatized expressions* “Oh my GOD you scared the ***** out of me!” one of them exclaimed.

Happy Halloween!

Hello there! I bring to you today, a Halloween post. Take me seriously – I carry a wand today. 🙂

Now, as you can see, I really didn’t wear a costume. This happens every time!!! Each year I think, I will really truly dress up this year! And, it never happens. I never can decide what to be.

Since I love dressing up in general, I don’t have to look far beyond my own closet to find something. 😉

sparkle-wand

This I did have to buy. Isn’t it pretty? I kept staring at it all night. Someone once told me I have very catlike qualities, and I think this is exactly what the person was talking about. I kept flicking my nail at the dangly bead, totally mesmerized, and also by the glitter.

glitter-makeup

I know it’s hard to see, but I applied glitter to my brow bones and cheeks, just to look more festive. Fortunately, I had some glitter on hand.

Kind of an autumn fairy look going on? Yeah, let’s go with that. 😉

Pictures from the party!

This party was held at my sister’s friend’s house. She didn’t go, but I did! He really went all out and decorated his entire home with elaborate lights, a DJ, decorations, food, and a bar with bartenders (I don’t drink, but I had a Pepsi or two. Wild, I know! I need to calm down!)

My friend and host of the party…was not expecting to see the President here. 😛

This came out blurry, but it makes it all the more creepy, no?

It was a really fun night, and it was a smaller-sized party so I enjoyed that. I’m not much of a party person, but for holidays it’s fun to go and celebrate. This really is my favorite time of year because I love anything holiday-themed.

I hope everyone has a happy and safe Halloween weekend!

See you next time! ❤
