An Autumn Tag

Hello friends!! Hope you had an amazing weekend and have been having a great weekend. My husband and I hosted a little gathering at our house and I cooked a bunch of snacks and we had a fire pit with some friends over. It was a good time. I think next weekend I will be having a little celebration for myself and go out to dinner with the family because as of Halloween, I will be a graduate from Grad school!!!

Any ways I got this tag from a twitter friend and fellow blogger so definitely check her out : HERE (:

1. The smell of pumpkin guts or rotting leaves?

HAHA Umm I am really not sure, I guess leaves because pumpkin smells best when it is sweet and baked lol

2. Sweat or salty pumpkin seeds?

Definitely have to go with Salty!

3. Store bought or pumpkin patch pumpkins?

Pumpkin patches are just fun and pretty. Being someone who has grown up around farms it is definitely the way to go. Pumpkin Patches all the way

 

4. Wool or knit sweater?

I guess I would have to go with knit. There aren’t a lot of wool sweaters where I am from and it is way to hot for wool where I live.

5. Halloween party or explore haunted places?

This is so hard to choose!!! I love scary and haunted stuff but I also love dressing up and doing the scaring so I really can’t decide. BOTH!!!

 

6. Apple pie or pumpkin pie?

I personally am not a big apple person so it would definitely be Pumpkin pie for me with extra whipped cream!!!

7. Still silent nights or rainy windblown nights?

Well where I live anytime we have storms our power goes out so I will take a still silent night… with the tv on lol

8. Witches or ghosts?

Definitely ghosts. I mean there are people who have the ability to talk to the dead right??

9. Raking leaves or climbing trees?

Climbing trees! Who in their right mind would pick a chore lol

10. Ouija boards or ghost stories around a campfire?

Ghost stories. I am not about to piss off the dead messing with a quija board. plus campfires mean hotdogs and s’mores!         Screen Shot 2017-10-30 at 12.16.04 PM

11. October or November?

October! Like I said I love halloween and all the creepy, scary stuff!

12. Black cats or owls?

CATS! I am a total cat lady. Owls are cool and pretty but I am all about some kitty cats!

13. Fireplace or candle light?

Hmmm I like both.. If I had to pick one I suppose I would pick a fire place only if it was electric because I don’t want my whole house smelling like a camp fire. Otherwise I would pick candles.

14. Monster movies or classic novels?

Monster movies because I rarely have time to finish a movie let alone a book. Plus my husband is not into reading so we spend time together finding movies and watching.

15. Carve or paint pumpkins?

I have literally never painted a pumpkin so I would have to go with carving pumpkins. Its so classic and fun and the best part is ripping the guts out! hahaScreen Shot 2017-10-30 at 12.15.06 PM

Friday the 13Th

Day 13 of Blogtober and it’s friday the 13th! Being the halloween freak that I am, I’m going to have a quick, short post for yall.

This is my necromorph I created. Don’t ask me what a necromorph is because it is a mystery. It is just a weird creature. I used liquid latex paste and aluminum foil to create the jaw piece and used ellimorph plastic to create the teeth and just painted everything including my face. I also added lots of hair serum to my hair to make it greasy and gross.

I’ve been trying to go out of my box and work on different looks. I don’t love how this turned out but still thought it was cool.

Halloween Look #1

This will be a quick little post friends but I wanted to share some of the halloween looks I have done. This is one of my favorite looks I have ever done. Me and my husband dressed as a Voodoo Doll and a witch doctor. The look took me many hours to put together and about an hour to apply. I could see but not very well, which meant no driving for me and drinking was difficult. I had to use a straw and eating was not possible. But I had a blast scaring people and everyone wanted to take pictures which is always fun for me!

It took lots of liquid latex, masking tape, hemp string and fake blood.

Over all was such a fun night and costume. I loved it!!!

October Goals

Who else is super excited it is October?? I think it just kicks off the holidays season. Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas! I always get super excited and go all out! So let’s jump into some goals.

  • My first goal is to continue on my healthy/happy body image. I want to lose a little weight, which I have spoken about before and I was doing great but now I need to step it up and not fall off the train. I want to get into posting outfit photos and I need to be happy and confident with my body in order to do so.
  • Next I want to dress and makeup myself more. Even if I am not going anywhere I need to get out of my PJ’s and put an outfit together and do my hair and makeup. I think that will help me with my first goal as well.
  • For October I really wanted to do my first Blogtober. I can’t promise I will post every day but I want to really try my best!! I also have been working on many SFX looks and I will be trying my best to post a new SFX look on my instagram each day so definitely take a moment and go follow me on Instagram! I will of course share some of the looks on here as well.

I’m keeping this month very simple because I have big goals and I graduate with my Masters in Public Health!!!!!! Yayyyy!!!

till next time

It’s BLOGTOBER!!

Screen Shot 2017-09-28 at 9.41.34 AMI really want to put my best effort in to doing Blogtober for the first time. With the help of some fabulous twitter friends I have some great Ideas for what to right about! So if you are new to blogtober, like me, let me introduce you. I will be writing some of my normal posts like monthly goals and a few reviews but I will also post some fall outfits, makeup looks, decor, recipes, and of course Halloween looks!

Writing a post everyday in October is going to take quite a bit of work but I think it will be so fun. Who doesn’t love fall?? It seems like people go crazy when it finally hits autumn. Even though it is still 90 degrees here where I live I want to be full on in the spirit of fall! I hope you enjoy and hopefully this will be a great success!

Movies You Must Watch By Halloween

Hello Friends! If you know me at all you know I am in full Halloween swing. I have been working on lots of looks for the 31 days of halloween and in prep for that I have been trying to watch as many scary, thriller, horror films as possible! Here is my list of must see movies.

  1. Screen Shot 2017-09-12 at 8.53.22 AM Classic slasher movie. Watch the original before the Rob Zombie remake. Both are good!
  2. Screen Shot 2017-09-12 at 8.56.56 AM Nightmare on Elm Street is a must see classic. What is freakier than this creep tying you up and literally cutting you up??
  3. Screen Shot 2017-09-12 at 8.58.55 AM Okay so I haven’t seen the first Scream yet… I know but is definitely on the list and I have to watch it before Halloween.. So should you!!
  4. Screen Shot 2017-09-12 at 9.01.13 AM The Shinning is not super scary but is a thriller. If you haven’t seen it you definitely need to watch Jack Nicholson lose his mind!
  5. Screen Shot 2017-09-12 at 9.06.38 AM The Exorcist is definitely a favorite of mine. Exorcism movies of all kinds actually. They are freaking and so captivating.

Okay I will be adding more to the list the closer we get to Halloween! What are your must watch halloween movies?? Let me know in the comments so I can see more. Me and my husband love scary movies!!
