I hope a lot of you were able to participate in Elycia's and Chantilly's craft night they had on Tuesday. [if you missed it, you can find the recording of it here] I unfortunately missed it, but the girls made sure I was there in spirit. If you watch the video that thing taped to the mirror behind them...yeah, that's me. Creepin' with my Creeper! I sent them 3 silly photos to choose from and thought I would share them here with you all today. I'm going to try and make my own cute felt camera this weekend. [link me to yours if you made the event!]
It's been rainy and gloomy for the past 2 weeks. So when there was a decent sunny day I jumped at the chance to wear something that wasn't going to be hidden under a coat and umbrella. Of course I decided to wear all black and grey! Fixed that by layering some pink tights under my striped pair. I'm bummed that the striped tights got a run in them later that day though. :(
P.S. You can kinda see my new hair color in these photos. Went back to my bright auburn. Thinking when I touch it up that I might go even more red. What do you all think?
However, this is probably my best outfit photo ever. It was REALLY sunny. ;)
Last Sunday I mentioned I had a fun Valentine's Day surprise coming up, and this is it!
As some of you may know I rang in the new year as a single lady. We both knew it was the right decision and I'm incredibly optimistic about what the future holds.
...but what does this have to do with this swap? Well, I enjoy Valentine's Day--I enjoy the colors, the decor, the chocolates, everything! So just because I won't have a significant other to celebrate with this year, doesn't mean that is going to stop me from enjoying every minute of it, and I want to enjoy it with all of you. ;D

I know a lot of people in the blogging community have been using Rafflecopter. I just used them for the first time in my 3 birthday giveaways and loved it! The interface is so easy to use and it made running the giveaways and announcing the winners a breeze. Right now Rafflecopter is hosting their own giveaway and I thought you all would be interested in entering. ;)
On Friday Amanda and I perused a couple junk and thrift shops. The day ended up being quite nice and fairly warm, which was a nice change from the cold rain we have been enduring lately. We didn't leave with many treasures, but the looks we got at the local pizza joint made it well worth it. I don't think we looked crazy, but you'd think we both had flaming dancing penguins on our heads by the stares we got! All in all, it was fun and I see many more junkin' adventures in our future. :D
Last quarter I was asked if I would do the make-up/hair for a book a fellow grad student was making in one of her classes. Her book was about the evolution of vampires and she wanted to recreate certain popular vampires--Nosferatu, Dracula, David from The Lost Boys, and Edward Cullen from Twilight. Since we used the same model for all 4 vampires, we weren't going to exact look-alike, but for the audience to still get the essence of the character. I had a really great time on this shoot and I think the images came out great. Oh--and that arm? That's my sexy arm modeling debut. hahaha
I thought I would start of the new year with some fun shots I just got. A couple of months ago my friend Juan asked me to pose for him for a lighting assignment he had to do for school. Seeing these photos makes me miss my red hair. I was thinking about doing darker but maybe I should go red again?
