Spooky Couture

The October issue of Harper's Bazaar featured this fashion spread, full of fabulously dark and twisted Halloween inspired looks. I love every little bit of it, but best of all, it was envisioned by film director Tim Burton! He is a true artist and I think he's brilliant!

One week left until Halloween! I hope everyone has their costumes picked out. Mine is currently just a pile of fabric and feathers, but hopefully I can pull something together fast.

I know these are very long overdue, but I finally found these pictures from my latest trip to Scotland. It was such a fast trip (4 days to be exact) so I really didn't have time to sight see, or take very many pictures. Nevertheless, it was still wonderful as always! I feel so blessed to have these opportunities and experiences.

Early morning walks are not the best time for pictures, but I loved this mossy wall so much I couldn't resist.

I think this place was called the Marcliff House.

Scottish wedding's are always fun.... and a little bit crazy (take the picture below as evidence)

wayyyy too many men in skirts (Mckay will kill me for saying that)


Long layover in Amsterdam.... it was gorgeous! Just about every street looked like this.

Crazy Dutch musicians marching through the street fair on Albert Cuypstraat(Street). The best part was their stick-on facial hair. YEA MUSTACHES!

"It seems like everywhere I go, the more I see, the less I know." So true, so true. Sometimes those rappers actually do know what they are talking about.

Not the greatest Monday ever

Reasons this week is starting out all wrong...

1.) Kitty decided to pee in my brown leather purse today. I asked her, "why, of all places, would you decide my purse is the best place for you to go?" She didn't respond.... too ashamed for words I guess. Now it smells, and I can't wash it. Looks like it's goodbye purse.
2.) I studied all weekend for a big test, and still did very very bad on it.
3.) I found out that Mckay is going to be gone an additional 2 weeks, which means that I get to see him a whopping 2 weeks out of the next 3 months. Yuck yuck yuck.

However, on a much brighter side, this day wasn't a complete failure! I discovered that a pair of adorable black ankle boots went on sale at Urban Outfitters. Now normally I wouldn't do this, but since my day was so crummy my self restraint went right out the window, and a few clicks later they were mine! haHAH finally something went well for me today.

Fall has.... Fallen?

So I prefer to use the word "autumn" to describe this lovely time of year. I think its a more beautiful word that better captures the essence of the season. And though my last post expressed some remorse over the end of summer, I do indeed LOVE the transition period from summer to winter. I love it so much, in fact, that my beautiful roomie Dani and I decided to go for a little afternoon drive up the Provo Canyon. We stopped to take some photos along the way.

Reasons I love Autumn...

1.) playing in the leaves
2.) the return of scarves and boots (ok, lets face, i pretty much wore these all summer too)
3.) the sense of magic and mystery in the air, like suddenly the world turns into a fairy tale
4.) Pumpkin patches
5.) the colors
6.) Halloween costumes
7.) the crisp air and the smell of fires
8.) Pumpkin Pie
9.) lazy sunday afternoon drives
