Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween! Have fun y'all!


I don't have enough to say today. I'm having one of those mornings where I'm still pretty tired. That paired with PMS and having the news on in the background makes for a weepy mess. I'll probably just spend the day working from the couch and/or bed. Eventually I should really get everything straightened out for tomorrow (Halloween!!!). Though I'm thrilled about the holiday, I'm practically bursting at the seams for Thanksgiving and Christmas plans. I've seen a few Christmas themed commercials this morning alone. It's the holiday season y'all, and I'm a little festive tornado. 

Halloween Baking

What's a festive Holiday without celebratory baking? To get into the spooky spirit, I decided to bake some pumpkin and bat shaped shortbread. The humidity in the air was real, so I struggled a bit with the icing, but you get the intent. It was a fun little treat nonetheless! 

October 23, 2017

I am completely, without a doubt, a Fall/Winter enthusiast. This time of year is what I live for. However, I always miss the plants that die back when the cold hits, particularly the morning glory vines. They're like a piece of magic in the corners of the backyard, and they're the first to die in Autumn. I long for the day I'll have a greenhouse to hoard plants in during the cooler months. I'll have to throw in a bit of morning glory vine for good measure.

Set the Spooky Evening Mood

What's October without moody lighting and a lot of orange? I couldn't let the month pass by without showing some photos of Halloween decor in the evening. I love this time of year y'all.

Halloween Socks

One of the best things about the uber commercialized season of Halloween is cheap decorative socks. Despite the phrasing, I do adore Halloween, and I do adore all of the fun things to see and watch and buy. When you put $1 socks with bats and ghosts on them in front of me, I'm buying every option available. Y'all. These are my new favorite socks.

To be fair, I was due for a few new pairs anyway.

Stream of Consciousness

I accidentally dressed as another film character. Sort of. I call this look "Goth Bonnie Parker," but more so Faye Dunaway as Bonnie Parker from "Bonnie and Clyde" (1967). Or close enough, at least. 

I took these photos during a the peak of an all-black-wearing mood that has since passed. I don't even know what I'm doing clothing-wise right now. As I type this, I'm in plaid pajama pants and a big gray t-shirt, because I don't know what I'm doing anymore! My mind is on a million other things. For example, the table runner I just spilled ink on that is now in the washer. Will the ink come out? Do I need to replace it? It's not mine. And I don't feel up to Inktober anymore. The two things are possibly related. I'm just not feeling it.

I am, however, feeling up to planning bigger photo shoots/series. I'm ready for a new direction. Lately, I've been going through a phase of just doing things that I've wanted to do for ages. I've always been the kind of person to procrastinate when it comes to anything I'm really eager to do. I don't know why. Self sabotage? Maybe? Point is, I'm currently trying to figure out where I want this blog to go. I'm putting together a photo portfolio and working on expanding my skills in that regard. I'm planning nice things that have no traditional blog context at all.

I just care a lot more about the visual element of this space right now, so these posts are probably going to have a lot less context than they ever have, if they have at all. It's a real free for all around these parts.

Every blogger and/or creator goes through transition periods. This is just another one. I hope you'll stick around.
