One More Week ...

... 'til Halloween!! I've nearly finalized the details for the party, I've made my lists for last minute shopping, I've filled orders and I'm about to list my little Jack-o-Lantern Zombees ... sigh. I'm kind of getting depressed knowing that it is about to be over, but I'm going to try and enjoy this week as much as possible! I'd like to say "hello" and "thank you!" to my new followers. I really appreciate your interest in my little blog & I hope I can keep things fairly interesting!

Country Living Magazine!?

I'm about to have a pee-in-my-pants dance party over the fact that: A. It is already October 19th! and 2: It finally got "cold" outside!! Yay!! A few things bum me out; like the fact that I'll miss Pumpkin Shine on Line AGAIN this year because of work, but honestly, I'm pretty happy otherwise. I have a great Halloween party planned [our 6th annual!] and I am not stressed at ALL about it! And as of Thursday, I'll be on my way to probably the biggest event that I've been able to be a part of since I started my little business.

I know!! It's bananas!! Haha. I've been keeping this a little "under wraps" since I found out I'd been selected to meet with the editors of Country Living Magazine back in August, mostly because I figured they had gotten something mixed up or someone had sent this to me as a joke [my siblings and I were pretty mean to each other growing up], but since I'll be leaving for Atlanta tomorrow, I think I can finally tell everyone! So, please wish me luck as I "pitch" my little Zombees to Country Living and hopefully I'll be selected to be featured in the magazine. This meeting is going to be a great learning experience and hopefully a launching pad! It would mean a lot for my budding business and maybe get me one step closer to having a storefront here in Shreveport! So here's hoping there is a weirdo who love zombies and hot wax on the judging panel! 

To be continued ...

Which Boots? Witch Boots!

I got these black suede mid-calf boots from Victoria's Secret a few years ago. I love them so much! They're great with long skirts or cigarette pants, or witch tights, of course! The heel is pretty low, so they're great for running around all day. I rarely wear them laced all the way up, I think pulling the laces out and tying them around the ankle adds a bit of my personal style to them. Love!

19 days!! ♥

And, yes ... I'll hand those business cards out year 'round.

Raaaaspberry ... ♥

 Brandon calls these my "Prince Boots." I think because they're deliciously raspberry in color and fearless in design. A nice hidden platform and cute buckle detail make these truly unique. I've had them for years [as you can see!] and have no idea when I got them. Like many of my shoes, I'm sure they were on sale and I'm sure I'll always be glad I bought them! These are great with opaque tights [shown] or flared denim so they peep out when you walk. They are surprisingly versatile if you're someone whose general wardrobe palate is black, white and grey. 

♥ Now Raspberry Beret is stuck in my head. There are worse things! ♪♫♪
