October Funny Friday

Today’s post is this month’s Funny Friday, a regular feature published on the last Friday of every month. Funny Friday is a collaborative project. Each month one of the participants submits a picture, then we all write 5 captions or thoughts inspired by that month’s picture. Links to the other bloggers’ posts are below, click on them and see what they’ve come up with. I hope we bring a smile to your face as you start your weekend.

This month my picture was chosen...

1.  Victoria Secret's future model...

2.  "Mom, my shoes don't match my panties."

3.  Thinking to does this silly contraption go on?

4.  2016's Summer fashion trend

Witching Hour

     A couple of weeks back I had the pleasure of modeling once again with my friend Kim Kelley of Kim Suzanne Images.  This time it wasn't the bubbly, colorful, whimsical photoshoot like last month.  It was the total opposite, dark, goth and magical. 

     I found the most perfect witch costume by CordeliaRoyle that I just had to have pictures taken in.  I showed Kim a picture and she was instantly on board!  I love dressing up and becoming a character, I think that's why I love Halloween so much!  With the dress ordered, I needed a few more items to complete my witch look.  I found this beautiful green feather shawl by Ravennixe that would add a bit of fabulous flare.  As far as jewelry went, I wanted something with more of a vintage gothic look. I found these beautiful Emerald green earrings from NouveauDreams that would be perfect.  I also had a custom made Emerald chain bracelet by Mikaylove made to add a little more color.  The Victorian BootsStriped Stockings, and Fishnet Gloves are from Amazon.  Other pieces of jewelry, my rings, necklace, and bracelet were found at a local jewelry store.  As for the broom, that is a total DIY project.  I found some sticks in a nearby forest, took some glue, rubber bands, and rope and created it.  The books are from a thrift store, the lantern is from a local grocery store.  Some of the other props Kim brought.

     It was a really fun and SPOOKtacular photoshoot, even it was a bit overcast, which did add the perfect light.  And wearing a strapless dress, made for a very chilly 3 hours of modeling.  Hehe, me modeling.  Sorry, that sounds funny.  Anyways...I am so super stoked how the pictures turned out, I mean she did take almost 1,000 of them!!

    Check out these wickedly awesome pictures....

Rainbows & Unicorns

     I know it's been awhile since I sat down and did a real post, so today I'm doing it!  Kinley isn't feeling very well, which means I'm on the couch watching movies with her today.  Thought I could sneak in a post while she watches her favorite princess, Merida.  

    So, last month was September, which means it was my birthday month.  No matter how old I get, I still love celebrating my birthday.  This year was no different.  I tend to celebrate it all month long, I mean, why not?  And because I like to do themes, obviously, I wanted to do something different and fun this year, which lead me to this fun photoshoot with one of my photographer friends....

     Here's the back friend Kim Kelley of Kim Suzanne Images was taking pictures at a Candid Cupcakes photoshoot, I was there to have pictures taken as well, when we got to talking.  She was photographing a little girl's smash cake and I asked her if she had ever heard an adult smash cake.  She had never heard of them, so I sent her some pins on Pinterest.  With my birthday the next month, we decided we should do it.  I found a lady, Danyelle Uribe to do my hair and makeup, my friend Emma Sadler of Home Ties planned on making my cake and cupcakes, found the perfect rainbow tutu by TulleBoxCreationsUK, a gorgeous golden birthday crown by Lovecrushcrowns, and some beautiful rainbow pearls by AlmostFamousa, booked a photo session at Studio 62, set a date, and that was it!

     I'm not used to being in front of the camera.  I usually the one behind it taking pictures.  With that in mind, I wanted a bright colorful whimsical theme that I could have fun with that reflected my personality.  So I picked rainbows and unicorns.

    Check out how my little photo session went....

Witchy Women

     So, since it is October my blogger friends and I are posting up some Fall poems this month.  I love Fall, the change of the leaves, the crisp in the air, pumpkin spice everything, and of course Halloween!  Sticking with the Halloween theme, I decided to post one inspired by a recent photoshoot I was in.  Have a SPOOKtacular day!
Photo by Kim Suzanne Images

Witches that cackle, tackle
with brews, spells, lotions, potions
for the sexes, hexes
with eye of newt, mummy's toe, bat wings, things
mixed together boil and bubble, trouble
witches on the prowl, growl
black cats with eerie eyes, flies
on broomsticks in the air, hair
stringy, long, black and grayed, frayed
black dresses, stockings, and hat, flat
black shoes with rusted buckles, chuckles
the witches about the lies, cries
of terrified children in their beds, heads 
must roll from the witches, bitches
of Hell, daughters of Satan, waitin'
to cast their evil spirits out, shout
the townspeople "Thou shall hang them", Salem
known for witchcraft, soon vanished, punished
by death, drowned, hung, feathered, burned......Earned.
