Christmas Gifts

I hope everyone had an enjoyable holiday (whatever holiday you do or don't celebrate). We celebrate Christmas in my household, but I wouldn't really call it celebrating...more like going through the motions. Regardless, I got some gifts I'm excited about!
This is a neat little crushed velvet backpack-purse. I'll be decorating it with patches and pins in the spirit of DIY.
So..many...books. I'm looking forward to reading Zak Bagans' (of Ghost Adventures) book. For any new followers, you must know that I regularly partake in making fun of this "ghost hunter." It's all in good fun. I think I'll do a post about his book when I get around to reading it.

 This is such a neat little necklace. It makes me wonder how they punched the cross out of the coin...It must be Christmas Magic! ;)

These lipsticks and the lip brush are Make up Forever brand from Sephora. The colors look lighter than they actually are. I tried these two colors in the store, and t…

Merry Christmas

I've had quite an eventful holiday this year. There's many changes happening, so I'm pretty much just rolling with the punches. Despite my expectations, I've had a good Christmas this year. I've spent a lot of time catching up with friends, and for that I am thankful. I just got back from one of my friends' family Christmas parties. We had Chorizo and steak, we busted piƱatas, and I even learned to dance the Cumbia (although not very well) . Maybe I should've been born Mexican, because they sure know how to have fun. ;) 
In the morning, we'll be opening presents. I'll make sure to do a separate post for that. 
And now for something completely different...I was quite proud of this outfit, because I tied the tie all by myself like a big girl. The top says,"Buzzkill Police."  Goodnight, everyone. I have to go to sleep now since it's almost the witching hour, and creepy-Clause will be breaking into my house any minute.

Styling My Short Hair

I just wanted to show everyone a few different ways I can style my hair. Many people think that short hair isn't as versatile as long hair. My cut, however, seems pretty versatile to me. I recommend this cut to anyone who's looking to going short.  
If you do decide on getting a similar cut, here's some styling ideas:
Of course, there's the lovely pompadour style. It's great for formal events, or when you want to add some sass to your day. I got this look by gelling the sides, and backcombing and curling back the top.
Mohawk-style! I really like wearing it like this. I wore it the next day after I had it in a pompadour. All you need to do is just comb it out a little, and use some gel and hairspray. 
This is my teased-up side sweep. It's similar to the pompadour style, but it's messier. I crimped some of the hair, and I brushed it over to the side.

 And Last but not least, it's a piecey pixie. I really love this style. It's the easiest to do. You l…

A Haunting: Local Case

Some of you may be familiar with the television show, "A Haunting." If you aren't it's a paranormal series that incorporates interviews and re-enactments to tell a story about hauntings, possessions, and other phenomena. I've been watching this show for years, and it's always entertained me. It is often cheesy and over dramatic, but that's just a part of the show's charm.

More recently, [my paranormal investigating group] gained a Father. He's an Orthodox priest, and his name is [Father Darren]. (See what I did there?) Father Darren, who's also known as Father Benedict, is experienced in the paranormal field. He's also an exorcist. He's there for us when the group or client might be suspicious of a haunting of darker nature. What does this have to do with "A Haunting," you ask? Well, Father Darren was recently featured in Episode 9 Season 5 (alongside my fellow ghost tour guide Michelle).  In the episode, Father Darren worke…

New Haircut

I finally got the hair I want, and I love it! I think it suits me. I'm not really sure what to call this style. What would you readers call it?
 On a more random note, I recently bought these tights from Hot Topic after their Halloween items went on sale. They have stitches all the way up the leg. I think they're cute.

And If you care to watch my random Shenanigans:

December Update

Hello, Everyone. I see I have some new readers since last time I've posted. Thanks for taking the time to follow!

December's been pretty hectic so far. I'm finishing up with final exams actually. My last one is on Monday. It's such a relief to finally have my first semester over with. This whole semester has been pretty chaotic. I've been working so hard that I think I my [Mono] came back. I've also already gotten sick twice this semester with a head cold and a stomach virus. I really need to slow down on the work load, but I don't know how to say "no" to work.


After my last final, I have about a month off until the next semester starts, so I'll be sure to do plenty of the things I've been planning. That list includes pleasure reading, clothing mods/alterations, more sleep, time out with friends, and blogging. I've also got another paranormal investigation this Friday, and hopefully (fingers crossed), I'll be getting my hair cut. I…
