All Hallows Eve

My attempt at hosting a party went over fairly well... I believe it was successful.  It was great hanging out with some of my work buddies.  Sometimes spending a good time with your co-workers relieves that built up tension that you feel when going to work.  

However, I'm sad to report that sending out invitations saying "costumes optional" has lead to me being to only one dressed up.  There were some people who wore a head piece or had a mask in tow, but not hard core costume like moi.  I felt a little bit odd in my goth make-up, black resident-evil design dress and wig with a spider clip.

Oh well.  Next time, costumes are simply not optional.  


Please excuse the towels behind me, I promise to be more mindful of my backdrop for future self portraits.  Or at least try to be more mindful... I'm fairly ditzy on a good day.   My make-up inspiration came from a super talented girl named Doe Deere, she calls this look "Bird of a Feather"

























End of the night make-up shoot.  I gotta learn to re-apply red lipstick if I ever decide to wear it again.  I'm too used to not wearing lipstick, so re-applying never crossed my mind after eating and drinking.  Ooops.  The wig was taken off after about 2 hours... it got way too hot and uncomfortable.  I'm such a wimp. 


Last night it snowed!  
Only in Canada can you have a few days of 15-20 degree weather, 
then only two days later have snow on the ground. 
You gotta love this country.
 
Tonight we will be handing out candy and watching scary movies.  
I'm beyond excited for the show, "Walking Dead"....  This zombie obsession is unhealthy and a little sick. 


Chris showed me many previews for the XBox 360 Kinect.  It's sick.  I want it!  We have the most perfect room that's totally empty, so I can go hard core.  I love games but can never really work the controller. Most of my friends know that I have always dreamed of games that all you had to do is move to control the characters.  I challenging anyone to a Mortal Combat!  (Or to join me in Resident Evil.)  Your ass will be kicked :-p But you are warned, I get a little bit competitive with games... just ask Jaclyn about me playing Monopoly and Candy Land... it's a little scary.  

There's so much more to blog about.  My Ottawa Fashion Week experience is to come!  But studying must come before I dive into uploading tons of pictures and blabbing.

SNOW I AM JEALOUS! It makes those graves even creepier. I wish we were together on Halloween, it's weird this year without close friends to goof off with. :(

LMAO, Krista, I wish you were here because we just scared the crap out of a kid. He thought they were real graves and totally forgot about the candy. Poor kid, he lives across from us. I tried to reassure him that no dead bodies were there but I think he didn't believe me.

Hi A!

I'm so pleased to meet you and I regret we didn't have a lot of time to hang out! I'm waiting for some official photos with you and me so I can post them. Yes, go ahead and post.. no, no I don't need to see it. (Do I at least do no look half-dead?)

p.s. you are beautiful!

xox,

ML

The wig is always fun Pop Champagne but gets so hot.

Thanks aliciafashionista ! The make-up took forever but I think it was worth it to look creepy... just it was so much to take off

Jaclyn LMAO! I <3 ya Babe. Hope you have a great time watching Mr. Cook.

20 York Street It was great meeting you too! Thanks for the shout out on your site xo Maybe next event we can chill out a bit longer.

Mom, you might have AMC.. it’s a basic channel. If not, you have to find a way to watch the show. It’s really good!

Justyna, the snow was so eerie...also annoying because I hate this upcoming cold season. There’s no such thing as a lame costume, as long as you dressed up it’s all good 

Boo on guests who don't dress up! I had a christmas party with a costume theme once and only 4 of us dressed up. Next time, it will NOT be optional! ;)

Hey, I can't see any new posts on this site, should I refresh my browser's cache? Anyone else experiencing this?
Please allow me to be spontaneous and post random stuff and quotes. I mean no harm.
How do I make my blog appear in search engines? I had it for a year, and no one comes to visit.
It's actually a pretty funny story what happened after I drank mushroom tea. I started posting random comments.

Dear Anonymous, there should be new posts...I don't think others are having similar problems. It's the first I've heard of it. And for the search engines question, I have no clue. My technical skills aren't that advanced. Just make sure you put key words you want people to find you by in your profile and titles. But I could be giving you wrong advice. Good luck in your search.
