November Photo Wrap-Up 2015

I’m back to wrap up the month with you guys. <—Did you see what I did there? Lol. The beautiful month of November is almost gone. I say “beautiful” because it really has been beautiful watching the leaves change colors (at least here in Oklahoma) and watching everyone transition into their fall attire. This post has a few pictures to recap how my month went. Enjoy!

One of my FAVORITE Fall outfits...so far

It wouldn’t be fall without a cute pair of boots. I got a good deal with these boots. Target was having a Buy One Get One Half Off Sale and they were also giving a 40% discount if you use their Cartwheel app. So I got these and a cute pair of black combat boots.

All The Makeups!!

All The Makeups!!

I purchased the BH Cosmetics Nude Rose Palette. I love the pretty neutral shades. Some of them have a hint of shimmer, which is always nice. I have yet to use all the colors in this palette because I haven’t played in my makeup in awhile (busy time of year) but I am sure that I will make time for it soon.

Lit the Fire!

Lit the Fire!

You can’t really tell by this picture, lol, but we lit a fire in our fireplace. I say “we” but it was actually my husband lol. This is the first time I’ve lived somewhere with a fireplace. The temperature finally was cold enough to do it. The fireplace along with a few holiday decorations and things are really coming together for us for our first holiday season as a married couple.

Entertainment ready!

Entertainment ready!

Of course we had to make sure we had the right entertainment to bring in the holiday season. We stopped by Vintage Stock and picked up a few movies to add to our collection. We purchase Scrooged, Jingle All The Way and one of my favorites National Lampoons Christmas Vacation.

David and I made a YouTube video recently to help bring in the holiday spirit. You can find the link below!

 

What were some highlights from November for you? Share below in the comments section! I would love to hear from you!

Thanks for reading. I’ll see you in December!

Top 5 “Not So Scary”, Scary Movies!

With Halloween fast approaching I felt that I would create a short list of scary movies that are lacking on the “scary” part. Please be aware that all of the movies on this list are from the 80’s or early 90’s. This is due to the fact that when I initially watched these I was a kid and once I got older I realized they weren’t nearly as scary as I thought they were. So here we go!

  1. LEPRECHAUN – 1993
You don't want to see this guy on your box of Lucky Charms!

You don’t want to see this guy on your box of Lucky Charms!

The only thing good that came of this movie or series was the rise of Friends star Jennifer Aniston. Yep, Jennifer Aniston was in Leprechaun. I don’t want to overlook Warwick Davis, he’s a good actor. However, somewhere half way through the movie you realize you haven’t winced or jumped yet. But you have giggled a bit at the dialogue. Yes the makeup is a little creepy, but that’s about as scary as it gets. You walk away from the movie with the reminder not to take anything that doesn’t belong to you. But didn’t your mom always tell you that?

2. GREMLINS – 1984

Not so cute and cuddly

Not so cute and cuddly

Don’t you want a mogwai? Of course you do! As long as you don’t get it wet or feed it after midnight then you’re in the clear. This movie is more fun than scary. Of course if anything like the events in this movie happened in real life you would probably be freaked out.

3. VAMPIRE IN BROOKLYN – 1995

Sorry Eddy. I can't you serious

Sorry Eddy. I can’t take you serious

I love Eddie Murphy. I love Angela Bassett. I love John Witherspoon. I do not love Eddie Murphy as a vampire or Angela Bassett as his love interest. This movie had some hilarious parts but I thought vampires were supposed to be scary. They tried it y’all, smh. It’s still entertaining though.

4. Chucky franchise

They couldn't leave well enough alone

They couldn’t leave well enough alone

This is a six film series. They scared me with the first film, Child’s Play. After the first movie things went out the window for me. It stopped being scary and became a little weird and comical. Basically as soon as Chucky got married I was through with the entire series!

5. Beetlejuice – 1988

The ghost with the most!

The ghost with the most!

I had to mention this movie. This is one of my favorite Michael Keaton movies. This is also one of the first Tim Burton movies I ever watched. I still enjoy the weird cartoony world that Tim Burton brings to his creations. The staircase snake and the sand worms are probably the only scary aspects of this movie. However, it’s still fun to watch. Especially the dinner table scene. You have to watch it to know why.

HONORABLE MENTIONS

  • KILLER CLOWNS FROM OUTER SPACE – 1988
Definitely an honorable mention

Definitely an honorable mention

When I watched this movie as a kid it was pretty scary. However, as an adult the concept alone is pretty goofy. This movie actually has a cult following and many people remember it. The main reason it is an honorable mention is because there are people of all ages who are scared of clowns (also known as Coulrophobia) so this movie does have a decent “scare factor”.

  • CRITTERS – 1986
Just...yuck

Just…yuck

Aliens, called Krites, arrive on the planet and begin terrorizing everyone. And by terrorizing I mean eating. Bounty hunters chase them. People run in fear. That’s…about…it.

  • PUPPET MASTER – 1989
Not your average puppet show.

Not your average puppet show.

Puppets (toys) are animated by a spell to kill a man. This movie is the first of nine. Yep…they kept making them.

So if you’re looking for some strange and creepy movies to watch for Halloween then I hope this list helps with that. You never know some of these could make for a fun night. You’re Welcome! Enjoy!
