Corpse Bride- Happy Halloween!

dress: cate’s     scarf: herej.com
Peter and I dressed up as the Corpse Bride and Victor. It was actually an extremely last minute costume! My neighbor collects vintage dresses, and she had this beautiful slip dress! She let me borrow it. :)
I put my own white corset and skirt slip underneath. I felt like it was a tasteful kind of sexy look. I made my own flower headband (with my moms fake flowers) and attached a scarf to the back for a veil. My mom let me borrow her old 80’s pumps.. and that was that!
As for the makeup, I used some really white concealer and mixed it with face lotion and put it all over my face, neck, and chest. Then I blended it all with this old Chanel body powder that my mom had. I contoured my collar bone, cheek bones, and jaw line with dark blue eyeshadow and then highlighted with a lighter blue shadow. You can’t tell so much in the pictures, but I looked bruised and boney. :)
For peter I used the same concealer and I just put brown eyeshadow around his eyes and blended it in. Doesn’t he look so much like Victor?? Crazy. He just wore all of his own clothing.
We took Kylie trick or treating and got a ton of candy for her haha Kylie was so sweet.. she said thank you after every single person put a piece of candy in her bag.
DIY flower headband
 
all you need is:
1. wire + wire cutters
2. fake flowers
3. hot glue
I cut the flowers from the stems. Then I measured the wire around my head and cut it so it wrapped twice around my head. I took the loose ends of the wire which were both in the back and secured them by wrapping them around a couple times. I bent one of the wires up so that I could make a crown that is thicker in the front. I started glueing the flowers to the wire by putting the glue right at the little nub behind the flower and sticking it on the wire. Then, to seal the flowers on there, I went over the backs of the flowers again with the hot glue. Hurray! Thats it. It only took me about 15 minutes. :) Sorry if I’m horrible at giving directions.
and finally, some photos from the night.

Come the Morning

I don’t have much to post right now. School is kicking my butt. I have a huge photo project due in a couple weeks so I’ll show you guys that once its done! But for now heres my baby girl. I love her so much. I’m going to be away from her for 3 days. I’m leaving tomorrow to go film a trailer for an upcoming movie. Its being filmed in Michigan. Because were there for such a short time, and were going to be working all day every day til Monday, I have to leave Kylie home with my mom. It’s going to be so hard to be away from her. I’m sure I will cry. :( Wish me luck though! This is pretty exciting that I get to be in the trailer! Possibly in the movie as well, but nothing is definite. We will see! I’ll make sure to keep you all updated :) and of course I’ll take pictures of EVERYTHING. as usual. :)

Fall Days

I always take picture of her in this sweater haha. Shes just so freakin cute I cant stand it. We had fun playing in the leaves. Both of our noses turned red so we went back inside and she helped me make hot coco. Then we watched the Little Mermaid together and when she fell asleep for her nap, I did my homework. Haha I love Christmas time! I have a whole wishlist for Kylie on myregistry.com! Just search my name “Bethany Struble” and the wishlist will show up! Just email me for my shipping address at bethanystruble@yahoo.com! (im not handing out my home address so you stalkers dont get too excited) hahaha you might not even need to email me, i have the address set as private on the wishlist, but I dont really know how that works. but I know some of you wanted to get a gift for Kylie this Christmas and we really appreciate it. Love you all!

Fall is Beautiful

I am constantly taking pictures of Kylie. I just can’t help it! But I can’t get her to look at me and smile! She is always moving around and doing something. Her brain never stops! Haha! Here are some pictures that I took yesterday.
That sweater that she has on was hand made. It’s so perfect and soft. She loves it. Dressing her is so much fun.
I don’t have much to say today due to a slight heartbreak putting me into an off mood. But thats another story! Hope everyone has an awesome day!

Wake Up

Another post of my daughter. I haven’t done much this past week and I had nothing to take pictures of. I swear I’ll have some different photos very soon. Anyway, I woke up and Kylie was just sitting on my lap waiting for me to wake up. I didn’t even notice she was tapping on my stomach to wake me. Exhaustion isn’t even the word that describes how tired I am. The last picture was an attempt to get a picture of her with a purple bow in her hair. She decided she didn’t want it there. And please notice the size of her ears. I have to admit she got them from me.That was my morning.

This post is a bit personal, but I thought I would share with you all my beautiful daughter. This is Kylie. She’s 1 and a half now. Time flew by so fast. All mothers say that but its so true. At times I miss my little baby, but the age she is at now is so fun! I try and take her to the park every other day. Her favorite thing to do is go on the swings. The days in between, I get her to practice some sort of art. She loves finger painting and coloring. Her favorite toy is our cat. Yes, a real cat. She drags the poor thing around the house. The cat loves her too though. Kylie loves everyone she meets. She’s shy at first and gets quiet around people she doesn’t know, but once you are around her a bit you’ll get to know that she is anything but shy. Her favorite game to play with me is “horsey”. Im sure you all know that one. She climbs on my back and I crawl around and neigh like a horse. Oh the things you do when you’re a mother.. Anyway.. theres a little peak into my life. Hope you enjoyed <3
