Happy October Eve!

It’s finally upon us! πŸ˜€πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰

Tomorrow is the first day of October and thus Halloween isn’t too far behind!!! 

πŸ˜†πŸŽ‰πŸŽƒπŸŽ‰πŸŽƒ

So, I figured I’d give you a few things to get in the spirit of the month here.

First of all!

I spent a good while compiling a list of thirty one Halloween themed films. Not all that easy when it got down to the wire… And I didn’t want to cop out and list every single Halloween film. ☺️

We’re above that here.πŸŽƒ

  
Now, I have actually seen all of these films WITH THE EXCEPTION of All Hallow’s Eve. But, I liked the synopsis and I’m going to give it the old college try if you will. ☺️

Truth be told, I’m not in love with all of these films (coughHouseOf1000Corpsescough) πŸ˜’, but I recognize that they’re pretty popular and I won’t deny this list of popular titles. ☺️

It’s a good mix of horror and family friendly so dive in and enjoy! πŸ’œπŸŽƒ

Secondly!

I made a purchase last week. And I regret nothing. 

  
Bella Morta Jewelry is an awesome indie biz that specializes in custom and wonderful horror jewelry! They had a big sale and I snagged this Sam (Trick ‘r Treat) necklace and adorable “psycho” choker for just a couple buck$!! 

The selfies will come soon enough! πŸ˜€πŸ˜πŸ’œ

I highly recommend checking out her store and doing some Halloween gift shopping! πŸŽƒ

Third!

I’m glowing over the positive feedback from my last SFX makeup! πŸ’œβ˜ΊοΈπŸ’œ  you guys are the best and I can’t thank you enough for all the sharing and kind remarks! πŸ’œβ˜ΊοΈπŸ‘πŸ»

With that in mind, I plan on doing another makeup this weekend involving puzzle pieces.😏πŸ”ͺπŸ‘πŸ»

So that’s all I got right now! Tell me: what are you looking forward to most this month? Which of the movies on my list are your faves? πŸ’œ

In other news, I’m so honored to have been nominated by the lovely Anna over at Bee Beauty for the Beauty Blogger Award! This is my second blogger award nom and I’m super proud! Thank you, Miss Anna! Go have a peek at Anna’s blog– You can thank me later!πŸ’œ

Here’s my Q&A for this:

  • How long have you been blogging?

Not too long! I’ve been blogging on and off for years, and have failed many times at having a successful blog, lol Vespertine House, however has been remarkably successful and that makes me sublimely happy!πŸ˜ƒ

  • Favorite makeup brand of all time?

Hmm, I’d have to say E.L.F. Cosmetics actually! They’re quite cost effective and I’ve never had issues with their products! They make up the bulk of my foundational cosmetic supplies! I will say that in regards to pigments and the like, MAC and Ulta’s store brand are pretty high up there too! Great selection from them!

  • Favorite beauty blogger/vlogger?

Definitely Mykie at Glam & Gore! I love all of her SFX tutorials and her videos are really just entertaining! She’s awesome.πŸ’œ

  • What’s your favorite type of blog to post?

Hmm, I love doing my “Sweet Spooks” SFX posts! Although, they’re very time consuming what with all the makeuping and all lol. But! They seem to get the most feedback and I love that everyone enjoys them!πŸ’œ

  • What do you enjoy outside of blogging (i.e. hobbies)?

I love to sleep. Haha! That should totally be a hobby as I would be so pro at it! I do needlepoint and I enjoy creative writing when the mood strikes me, as well as painting and music. I actually started writing a book! With chapters and everything! Completely inspired by true events! But I have yet to finish it. I dabble in a lot of things I reckon.☺️

  • Meaning behind your blog name?

“Vespertine House” is supposed to mean a dominion that flourishes in the evening. The word “Vespertine” is an archaic term for “blooming in the late evening, or at dusk”. It’s one that we don’t use anymore but I simply love the word so I brought it back! lol, I added the “house” as it makes it feel more like a closed group and gives it a bit of exclusivity. The same way big fashion houses are called “houses”. I imagine as a whole, the name denotes a close knit group that comes alive after dark. Creepy, no? Yeah, I know you like that. lol😏

  • What inspires you?

Everything! I can be inspired by anything from the people around me to something I see in passing. Typically I get most of my best ideas from staring at the white abyss that is my ceiling above my bed haha.☺️

  • Favorite show?

Hmm, I love Doctor Who and I love BTVS. I spend most nights watching repeats of Night Gallery and The Alfred Hitchcock Hour which is awesome. I’ve also been regularly watching Catfish and Scream on MTV. I guess all of those are my faves!

  • The one thing that makes you happiest in the world?

Hmm, getting a full nights sleep and waking refreshed in the morning lol. It’s a rare, rare thing but when it happens it’s amazing.😁

  • Your best piece of advice to your fellow bloggers?

As someone who’s found several ways NOT to have a successful blog, but finally found the ONE way to have a successful blog, I think the best advice is to write for yourself and write about something you’re really, really into. I’ve written about stuff in the past that I thought I really enjoyed but I lost interest fast or worried that my opinion wasn’t advised well enough. It was a struggle and I failed at it of course. Now that I’ve found a way to vary my interests but still keep them relatively on topic (because i’m actually a weirdo by nature lol), I’ve been successful and have found a great audience of AMAZING people who make me feel humbled about my writing. And that’s the best! So, just write for you and your audience will find you.πŸ’œ

Alright! So! I nominate the following lovely beauty bloggers!

And my questions for you ladies…

  • Pick one Urban Decay or MAC? Which and why?
  • Favorite song right now?
  • Would you rather be famous for your blog or be famous for a talent you have (i.e. singing, dancing, art etc.)? Why
  • If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?
  • Would you rather have the closet of your dreams, complete with every Louboutin and Ferragamo in history, or a private makeup studio in your house, complete with every Dior and MAC cosmetic in history? Which would you choose and why?

Look of the Day: Do Less, Sleep More

πŸ˜’

Ugh.

I’m feeling some kind of way today.

I started feeling sick yesterday, and started feeling better in the afternoon, only to feel cruddy late last night.πŸ˜”

I was tired. Really,Β really tired before crashing out for about 4 hours, only waking to eat and take some allergy tabs.

Suffice it to say, I slept for about 12 hours and am so groggy and blah today. πŸ˜‘

This look of the day is everything right now.πŸ’œπŸ˜΄

What did you guys do today? Tell me all about it. πŸ’œβ˜ΊοΈ

Freaky Friday: ‘Hips & Curves’ Halloween Preview

I love finding Halloween previews in my inbox, especially when they have a little bit of well-thought-out fashion involved!πŸ’œ

The lingerie brand, Hips & Curvesreleased their Halloween Lookbook today as a preview for their costume pairings.πŸŽƒπŸŽ‰

Now, let it be known that I love Hips & Curves and have purchased from them in the past- costumes included! They’re a bit pricey but you’re paying for serious quality. They specialize in steel-boned corsets and leather. 😏

Yes, I know you’re excited.πŸ˜†

So, out of the many looks they created, I compiled a few of my faves to share with you:

image

It’s so very Poison Ivy, it’s ridiculous! I love it especially the black and green.πŸ’œ

image

Love the Lacy bunny; I think it’s all that black tulle…☺️ It would be perfect for a more formal masquerade soirΓ©e.

image

They had another kitty look but it was a bit too… RisquΓ©.😏 This is a nice take on Catwoman if you’re going for that this year!🐈

imageimage

The Ringmaster and Queen both utilize the same pieces which is why I’m putting them together here. This is great if you have several parties to attend this season. You can switch up the look by just utilizing the two staple pieces (hoop skirt and corset)!πŸ‘πŸ»

image

If I were going to do a pirate costume this modern take is pretty much my speed. This is edgy and adorable all at once. Remove the jacket and accessories and you have a modern-day Little Red Riding Hood! Just add a cape or red jacket!πŸ˜€

image

Normally I wouldn’t care to include a seemingly basic Snow White, but! I love the hints of Steampunk in this one! The gloves, goggles and harness make this a little different from your run of the mill Snow Whites. Instead of carrying an apple get some resin and mold it around some cogs in the shape of an apple, add a jump ring and chain for a subtle nod to the fairytale princess!😌

image

I love this mermaid look! The soft rose and candy blue- perfect!πŸ’œ

image

πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œThis is my favorite. This is a totally glam take on Bride of Frankenstein. With the right makeup, this could be brilliant!πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ

image

One of my faves as well- I love the feather shoulder pieces. This could be really badass if you add a sword and shield!πŸ’ͺ🏻

imageimage

These are similar but very different. The black patent is far more edgy and the blue is super Marie Antoinette. It’s the wig. ☺️ Regardless, you’d definitely stand out in either of these costumes! Not only because you’d look hot but not too many people can pull off a powder wig! You classy broad, you.πŸ˜πŸ’œ

image

This look is very boisterous and I love it! Make your date dress up as Louis from “Interview…” And you’re set!πŸŽƒ

image

So gorgeous! 😍 Add your best gold jewelry and arm cuffs to take it to the next level.

Halloween is on its way! And I’m stoked! πŸ˜† Be sure to check out other pieces and looks at Hips & Curves!

What do you think of these? Which is your favorite? What are you thinking of dressing up as for Halloween??πŸ˜πŸŽƒ

Look of the Day: Starry Eyed

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

image

I may be privy to black and gun metal but I do enjoy lighter looks too. ☺️

As far as I’m concerned, when it comes to pulling off a fun day-to-night look, it’s all about subtle details that add orderly chaos- pops of color in your patterns and texture mainly- and really making it your own with the right accessories.

Accessories are just everything. πŸ˜πŸ‘πŸ»
What sort of mood were you in today? What makes a look decadent for you?
