In honor of Halloween, I thought I would post something eerie to get us into the holiday spirit. Candice Tripp's inky and eerie paintings are a perfect start. Her work was recently featured in the latest issue of HiFructose.

all caught up

Now that I'm all caught up with Acne Paper #8, issue #9 is officially out. All I have to do is just wait 6 months for it to magically arrive in my area. Oh boy. My online search begins...

acne paper #8/recap

I'm sad to see the weekend go. I had such a lovely weekend consisting of the following:

-Chris making me breakfast in bed [french toast & bacon mmm]
-I finally had the chance to get my dark lipsticks for the fall months. I picked "Media" [a dark berry] & "Diva" [a dark burgundy] from MAC.
-I got my hair done and changed my streaks to a dark dark brown with a little hint of violet. I like it and Chris loves it. My hair is so ready for fall.
-I found my polka dotted tights at Nordstrom!!! FINALLY.

I think that about raps it up my weekend goodness! Now, yesterday, I was browsing the magazines at B&N and actually came across a something good! It was the Acne Paper #8 Summer issue. Why I had not seen this there earlier is way beyond me. It was probably hidden on some top secret shelf where all the good magazines probably are or maybe the state of Virginia gets good magazines in super late. Who knows. I had seen almost the whole mag. online through forms, but seeing it in person is way better. I loved the Sarah Moon and Tim Walker editorials the most!!! I'm thinking about going back today and buying it to add to my ever growing magazine collection.

I seriously can't wait for Jimmy Choo for H&M!!!


Anyone else excited?!

I hope everyone has a great weekend! I'm getting my hair done tomorrow so I'm super excited about that. I think I'm going to be changing the red streaks in my hair to a brown that is darker than my natural shade of brown. Or maybe I will do black. Who knows.

take me away!

After our scary adventure on the Haunted Hayride the bf decided he wanted to take pictures. Kind of random, I know...but, here is what came out of it! I actually made the little birdie for Chris for our first Valentines Day together.

P.S. I love my wool beret!

dark berry

Everyday I've been wanting a dark berry lipstick for fall more and more. I'm not sure if I want a dark cherry or a black berry-ish color, but I was thinking about getting "Cyber" or maybe "Diva" from MAC this week and trying that out.

Here's more dark berry inspiration here, here, and here!

thrifting treasures

So finally I stopped being a slacker and decided to attempt taking pictures of my new treasures! I say "attempt" because I was using my bfs massive pro camera that I have no clue how to operate. So, I apologize for the badly taken pictures you are about to see haha!

Here is a crushed velvet gem that I found on Sunday. I'm going to turn it into a long sleeve crop top. I'm really excited to start working on this! I love the dark purple crushed velvet with the studs. Plus, that studding on the neckline...gotta love it. I'll post pictures up when I finish it!


Here is my Thursday night recap.

It all started with really yummy terriyaki chicken that the bf made.

Followed by pumpkin carving!

Yay for Halloween! Is anyone dressing up or doing anything special?

I NEED some black sheer polka dotted tights. NEED! I have looked all around this damned town and can't find them anywhere. Does anyone know where I can find some online or in town??? I need an angel!

* pictures are from here

Now that I have what's important out of the way, I can tell you about my plans tonight! Well, the hunny is cooking me chicken terriyaki and we are going to carve our pumpkin tonight! For some reason I'm way more excited because I bought a white pumpkin this year. Silly, I know. But, it is what it is! Maybe I'll post some pictures of it later [along with the thrifting treasures I'm supposed to show you all!!!!] if I don't go into slacker mode afterwards.

The nerdy side in me loves this. Plus her outfits are fierce.

Fasting makes my Monday officially suck. Oh, plus the 2 shots I have to get make it suck too. Bummer. I hope you guys are having a better Monday than I am!

we sew stuffed

So I know I told you all a while back that 2 of my creations made it into the newest issue of Stuffed Magazine. Well, I finally got the bf to take pictures of the pages they were on!

The magazine is still available online and in book stores[like Barnes and Noble] near you!

Got this bad boy this weekend with a dolman sleeve sweater and a wool beret at H&M. I also struck gold at a thrift store on Friday. I found myself a brown blazer, a chambray button up, and a super cute rectangle-ish brown leather purse all for 13 bucks. Hell yes. Maybe sometime this week I'll post my new treasures.

My week and weekend were super busy and filled with great movies/documentaries, great friends, scary monsters, and a super romantic candle lit dinner. Tonight, it's dinner with Jason & Liz. I hope you all have a great week!
