Sweet Spooks: A Refresher in Burns

I haven’t been ignoring you’ve, I’ve just been swept in a whirlwind of asinine things. πŸ˜‘

You know how it goes. 

Anyways! I hope you guys have been well! I’m doing alright, typical days follow over here- job hunting, naps, working, more naps…

My butt hurts, and I need a nap. 

πŸ˜€All is right in the world! 

I haven’t had any inspiration to do any makeups since last fall and it’s been killing me. πŸ˜”

Fortunately, the wheels began turning once more, and I decided to refresh my makeup phalanges with a basic burn on Sarah Jr.! 

This was fun and I was able to use some of the Devinah Cosmetics for the entire paint! They’re really brilliantly pigmented and worked so well for this! 😍 

I need to work on physiology and the human anatomy aspect of my makeups because I can never get a dental piece to sit naturally. πŸ˜©πŸ˜”

A work in progress I reckon! 

I plan on doing another makeup very soon especially for Valentine’s Day! 😏

So what have you guys been up to? What are you planning for V Day? I still love You.πŸ’œ

Update Part Deux

Happy Holidays everyone! πŸŽ„πŸ˜€

Whatever you’re celebrating this season I hope it involves lots of love and loved ones.πŸ’œ

I had intended to blog a lot more a lot sooner, but had some major drama go down with my poor sweet IPad. πŸ˜” suffice it to say, I no longer have my original iPad and am coming to you from a new one. The old one was replaced after the brutes at Ubreakifix broke the WiFi on my old one. πŸ˜’

Happy to say I’m done with them and back in action! 

I’ve also been busy with work and maxing out my credit card. πŸ˜€πŸ”ͺπŸ›

But now! Now I’m back! 

I hope you all have been well and I still have lots of Halloween giveaway stuff to do! More than likely will have some contests coming up for you in the new year! β˜ΊοΈπŸ’œ

I have a few cool things to share too! 

Stay tuned! πŸ’œπŸ¦„

Everyday is Halloween Here

I haven’t updated since Halloween I don’t think!

For that I’m sorry. πŸ˜”

But! On the upside! I’m here now! πŸ€— so I’m here, you’re here- it’s a party! πŸŽ‰πŸ•

The last few weeks have been kinda crazy but I’m here to tell you that I will definitely be bavk to all the blog by goodness starting now! β˜ΊοΈπŸ’œπŸŽƒ

And yes, Halloween and horror will still come first at Vespertine House!

So my Halloween was fun! Our trick r treaters loved the decor and creepy candy guillotine ☺️ we didn’t have nearly as many as we had planned for, so we had a ton of candy left haha! 

The party was a blast! My guests loved the nacho bar and treats! We also had a great time playing Trick R Treat bingo!πŸ€—πŸ’œ I gave out lots of tricks and treats which was fun. Everyone had a blast! 

Since Halloween ended I slipped into PHDD (post Halloween depression disorder) and was sad about November coming so quick! Since then I’ve been busy with lots of stuff including starting a new job. ☺️

As for me, things are good and I’m still doing SFX stuff! I’m just trying to come up with ideas right now. ☺️ my gashed finge has since healed up to a nasty pair of scars! πŸ€—πŸ’œ unfortunately, there’s a slight chance I’ve accumulated some nerve damage as the pain I was hoping would heal with the wound has remained and may remain for a good long while. Fortunately, it only really hurts when I bend it fully. Which is kinda hard not to do for lots of stuff lol. ☺️ but it’s not that bad and I’m fine! In other news, my knee has recovered 100%! πŸ™ƒπŸ’œπŸŽ‰

So, now we’re current on all things me! ☺️

Lately I’ve been spending a lot of time on Periscope because it’s just too much fun! I’ll be posting updates here about when I decide to go live with makeup tutorials and movie broadcasts too! So, if you have the app I hope you’ll join me! πŸ’œβ˜ΊοΈ because it’ll be fun to chat and do fun things together! β˜ΊοΈπŸ’œ 

Periscope: @Sarahseado or find me on Twitter at the same handle and look for my scope tweets! 

I also have a bunch of stuff to giveaway! Three Halloween party favor bags to be exact! πŸ€—πŸ’œπŸŽ‰ I’ll think up a cool contest to run this week. 

Til then! Tell me what have you been up to and how was your halloweeny?! Love you.πŸ’œπŸŽƒ

Giveaway Update: And the Winner is…

Hey guys! 

It was a busy week, once more, but the universe has given me a serious dose of slow-the-fuck-down as I’m currently incapacitated from a knee injury. πŸ˜”πŸ˜’

Long story short? I busted it on a table at a wine place in Orlando and was too drunk to realize how bad it was until the next day. 😒🍷

On the upside, it’s been a day and it seems better! I just really hope it continues to heal and fast… I believe it’s just sprained and fingers crossed that’s all it is! ☺️

That’s a Wrap: Farewell, Wes Craven

Earlier this evening I scrolled through Facebook, flinching every time a MTV Video Music Award article appeared. As I gave up looking for actual news updates, I clicked on the icon that appeared showing that new stories had trickled in. Before leaving my app and closing my folio, I glanced and saw the headlines:

Wes Craven, Horror Movie Maestro, Dies at 76

The steady flow of air in my lungs was suddenly interrupted and my heart sank. I couldn’t believe it.

I still can’t believe it.

Wes Craven’s passing this evening has left me purely saddened. It’s the very same melancholy haze that lingers when you lose someone you love.

I have no connection to Wes Craven- we’ve never even met- but I can’t help but feel heartbroken over his passing as he had such a profound impact on my life.

Wes Craven created some of the things that make me happiest today, and he is solely responsible for my love of horror films.

His signature style can be distinguished immediately in all his films. He was edgy, cool, and had such a polished aesthetic that every up-and-coming director could learn from. Scream was my first romantic spree with genuine horror and it was Craven’s lasting impression that still resonates with me, and so many others, today.

The horror community will have a dismal day as they say farewell to a seminal cinematic figure.

In light of this, I do hope that you find the time to read about the great Wes Craven or watch one of his many classic films. I really think he would love knowing that our send off to him comes in the form of us experiencing the thrills he so beautifully orchestrated on the silver screen for so many years.πŸ’œ

Thank you, Wes, for all the nightmares and screams you shared with us. You’ll be missed.
