#BLOGTOBER Day 26- “Head Over Heels” Commentary

This was a short horror script I wrote back in 2015. Unfortunately like many of my scripts, it was never filmed. However, being that it is Halloween and I am a writer, I thought it’d be fun to at least share the script with you. You can read it in full form in yesterday’s BLOGTOBER post HERE

Which brings us to today’s post…

ALSO FAN GIRL REPORT SIDENOTE: Due to bruised vocal chords Justin Timberlake has had to postpone a few of his tour dates. My Wednesday night show, sadly was one of them. I was all set, rushed home from work, was going to eat, change and head out, when I got an email and voicemail from Ticketmaster. And then I saw J.T.’s instagram post. I missed it earlier, because I was working. But what can you do, at least I saw it before I got ready to leave my house. I have to admit, I was bummed. I was so pumped to see him live. It’s been a while!

I had a show rescheduled, back when he first toured for the Justified album. My first time ever seeing him live, solo. There was a crazy stage accident and people were injured and equipment was damaged and they had to cancel it. I was so upset. I was probably about 12 and I was hysterical crying when I saw it on the news.

My older cousin was supposed to take me, so she was like I will take you wherever you want to go, we can do whatever you want that day and you can bring whoever you want. She’s the best! So I wanted to go to Build-a-bear (Is 12 too old for that? Probably but whatever, til this day that is the only Build-a-bear I have. This coming from a girl who played with Barbies til she was like 14, Lol #DONTJUDGE!) I brought my best friend and we all went to the mall, and it was a great day! 

Needless to say, we made it to the concert…and it was freakin’ AMAZING!

And this one will be too. Being that ya know I am having to #ADULT these days, I totally understood the need for JT to have to postpone. He needs to take care of himself first. Health and Safety first always. The new date is going to be on his 38th Birthday- January 31st, so I am super stoked for that! Rest Up JT, see you in January! I just can’t wait! Ah #FANGIRLIFE!

So Stay Tuned my fellow fangirls, full concert outfit and concert review COMING IN THE NEXT YEAR, haha. Book Review too! 😀

#BLOGTOBER Day 24- Fall Fashion: Concert Style

Justin Timberlake’s style for his MAN OF THE WOODS show is very laid back. So for my concert look tonight, I wanted to mirror that same vibe. Comfortable, yet stylish. 

As you can see he wears a lot of , flannel, leather, denim, black. There are some earthy tones and outdoorsy pieces, so camouflage is a pattern that pops up a lot too. And I’ve seen he mostly rocks sneakers or boots. He also mixes patterns at times too. But the usual basis for the outfit is a graphic tee. 

jt wardrobe
JT tees 2
JT tees

In fact he has a clothing collection with the brand Levi, called Fresh Leaves

And a sneaker deal with Air Jordan…these are sold in limited locations. 

*JT concert merch is available HERE!

Because I wasn’t a fan of any of the few t-shirts left on his website, I opted to find my own shirt and to put together my own outfit using simple pieces I already had in my closet. #GOTTASAVEMONEY #ADULTING I am hoping they are selling some concert tees there though. I really wanted one online, but it’s no longer up. 😦

I found a JT shirt with the album graphic on it in Target for cheap and ordered one each for me and my best friend. 

So the concert tee is the main focus of the outfit.

GUEST_778a6246-f8a0-47e1-a3bb-b70d9cbbbe57[1]

I painted my nails- black, white and orange- the colors of the album cover, which is the graphic featured on the t-shirt. 

IGNORE MY MESSY NAILS IN THE FOLLOWING SHOTS…I took all of this before I cleaned them up. 😉

20181024_005006
20181024_003239
20181024_003259

Currently I am torn between two outfit ideas. Either some black pants or jeans, a red/yellow/white flannel, and a leather jacket or oversized denim jacket over top the tee and the flannel. I opted to rock either my combat boots or my white & black Michael Jackson boots. Depending which outfit I end up choosing.

I’m also keeping my jewelry pretty simple- some gold hoops (not sure which size I’m rocking just yet), two gold chains for a layered affect, 4 plain gold rings, and a cuff like bracelet. With a yellow purse too, to tie in the colors of the flannel. 

For my makeup I’m planning to do a mix of fall colors, a lot of golds/oranges/reds.

Similar to this makeup/hair look…

20181006_180415_1538863484810

Except I’m planning to swap out the red lip color for something in the more brown/bronze/peach family. Either I will pick one of the lip colors below, or do some type of mix of colors.

And as for my hair, I’m going to be adding  some random loose waves with a curling wand, using products like mousse, dry shampoo, and hairspray.

There you have it, my JT MAN OF THE WOODS outfit inspo. I am ready to dance and sing my ass off! I will reveal the full look I chose tomorrow! 

Tonight. Fangirl mode. ON.

Stay Tuned for a full Concert Review! COMING SOON!

#BLOGTOBER Day 23- Fangirl Report: J.T. Edition (Who else?)

Hello, my fellow fangirls! How the hell are ya? 

I know it’s been a minute since I’ve posted an updated fangirl report on here. But to be honest, as you get older, adulting is a thing and it can totally harsh your fangirl mellow. But that being said after tomorrow…I’ll have some more fun news to report for you!

Tomorrow, I have tickets to see the man, the myth, the legend- Justin Timberlake in his MAN OF THE WOODS TOUR. If you remember, seeing J.T. in concert is on my Fall Bucket List…so I am super happy to be able to check that one off!

It has been a while since I’ve seen him in concert. My Fangirl life is pretty well documented on this blog though. See lists of posts below…

Filthy Friday

A Message To Justin Timberlake

The Year of Justin Timberlake

Get Ready With Me For, Justin!

And these are just a few. I have a whole tab on the side of my blog just dedicated to Justin Timberlake/Fangirl Reports 

Needless to say, I feel like JT is kind of doing his thing this tour. He isn’t really attending many award shows because he’s touring, and to be honest I haven’t been keeping up with the award shows either. He isn’t really doing many public appearances, again, because he’s touring. And I’m doing life on my end, and we just meet in the middle. Haha. Normally I’m like tracking his every move, but ya homegirl has a busy life now! I feel like I barely have enough time in a day! Haha. Thanks to his instagram I can still keep up. But I’ve learned not everything has to be super urgent. 

Was I excited when his new album came out? 

Yes.

Did I buy it?

Duh.

Did I have a private dance party, alone in my room, at midnight. 

Maybe. 

Do I continue to purchase *NSYNC tees like a psycho?

Um of course. 

[They just released VOL. 2 of the new *NSYNC merch collection. (that doormat tho! haha)]

Did I try to get tickets when they went on sale?

Yup was on Ticketmaster bright and early, and no luck!

So I realized something. If I want to go. I will make it happen. I kept checking back and waited out those damn ticket prices, til I felt the price was reasonable and the seats were decent enough. I love you JT, but I am not made of money bro! Ticketmaster was legit, driving me crazy. But after a while, I finally got my tickets a few weeks ago, and it’s a go for tomorrow!

Me and my best friend are wearing matching t-shirts, I found in Target HERE, and I have my Fangirl To Do/Prep List ready to go for when I get out of work today. #NERD

IMG_20181023_090958_503 (1)

Tomorrow is going to be so crazy, I have work, then I have to rush home, change and head out! I am so freakin’ excited though! It’s going to feel like old times. Nostalgia. 

^Me and my best friend…I can’t wait to add a new picture to this! 😀

I haven’t let myself watch too much footage from the concert, because I knew I was planning to go. But I have seen the vibe of it, very campfire, woodsy, earthy. I love it, and I am with it. Although I feel like my obsession with this album isn’t as strong as my others, but this album is definitely feel good, chill vibes. And I’m ready for it. I am getting pumped writing this as I listen to the album, lol. [Flannel is playing right now- has become one of my favorites.] And I’m sure he’s going to throw in the nostalgia hits, #Cry Me A River, #What Goes Around, #Mirrors. Omg I am so ready, you guys! Last time I did a whole vlog situation, but honestly it was very time consuming and I filmed a get ready with me and all that too, and I just don’t have the time for that this year. I’m rushing home to go see him as it is. Besides, sometimes you just want to be in the moment and not worry about having to capture it on a recording device. So as much as I would love to have another JT concert vlog for MLW, I think I’ll just stick to crappy cell phone coverage and my oh so wise words. 😉 But I will of course be doing a concert review!

So stay tuned for that!

Fangirl TO DO/PREP List:

Tickets

Pick an outfit- accessories, shoes, jacket, makeup look, hair style- Ugh! I have a few ideas for an outfit but I haven’t really made an official decision yet! #GirlProblems

Clear out cell camera (always getting full, gosh! #memories)

Charge phone

Paint Nails

Listen to JT albums (gotta get them singing skills ready!)#NOVOICEATWORKONTHURSDAY

Directions for venue (just in case I have a mental fart and can’t remember where I’m going, it’s possible! haha)

Chat with bestie/confirm plans

 

Also quick side note: J.T. wrote a BOOK! It comes out literally in ONE WEEK, Next Tuesday, October 30th! And yes I will be buying it. Hey maybe I’ll do a little book review! 😉 Seriously though, is there anything this dude can’t do?

#BLOGTOBER Day 22- Love Potion

With all these Halloween vibes around, I thought this prompt was pretty fun. So I will channel my inner witchcraft vibes this Halloween season and create a fictional magic potion. 

Prompt: Write a recipe for a magic potion. Next, explain what the potion would do if someone drank it

love-potion[1]

FALL IN LOVE POTION

INGREDIENTS:

7 red rose petals 

A splash of red wine

A pinch of gold glitter

3 drops of Lavender essential oil

A feather from a Dove

SUPPLIES:

Candles

Red string 

Rose quartz stone talisman

Red lipstick

Cauldron

Large paper place matt for under your cauldron

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Light some candles and place them around your working station.
  2. Mix all ingredients into your cauldron. (Hold the glitter for later.)
  3. Knot the red string around the Rose Quartz stone, creating a talisman. 
  4. Place a heart outline on your placemat, around your cauldron using your red lipstick.  (doesn’t hurt to throw a little on your lips too!) 😉
  5. Swing the talisman above the mixture in quick small circles.
  6. Say the spell as you do so.
  7. Throw the glitter in as you chant the last line of the spell.  

SPELL

Bubble Bubble Toil and Trouble

wish you were part of a couple

Passion, Presence, placed in your heart

 True love 

A work of art

NOTES:

If you do this right, your liquid will light up a bright pink, and the bubbles will turn into hearts., filling the air around you. Pour it into a heart shaped vessel and drink it, on the rocks with a cherry on top!  Once you drink this you will lock eyes with the love of your life  within the next few days, and your journey to forever will begin.

Kisses

Enjoy!

On Halloween Night- A Poem

Candy Candy

is all you see

Children singing Trick-or-Treat

The Black cat climbs

my what sharp teeth!

beady yellow eyes

Midnight moon, high in the sky

Winds howling

breezes floating by rustling leaves

Bats flying

Catch them, you can only try

Green witches casting spells

Cackling over a boiling cauldron

Orange pumpkins

creepy carved smiles

Spirits whisper “sit down, stay for a while.”

Creaking doors opening

Cold hands reach

“Run,” the ghost whispers, “there is someone behind you.”

Flickering lights

Screams of terror

Scary noises haunt

Spooky creatures taunt

Hurry home

before Halloween night swallows you whole

 

Happy Almost Halloween!

#BLOGTOBER Day 20-Fall Smoothie Recipe

Pumpkin/Apple Smoothie

20181020_122236

INGREDIENTS:

Apple

Pumpkin Butter

Oats

Nutmeg

Cinnamon

Milk

Ice

*I used my Ninja Bullet, but you can use any blender really. 

TASTE: [Adjustments]

This was a nice blend of fall flavors. I enjoyed it. However, I kind of just threw this together with what I had. So next time I might add some creamy peanut butter and use real canned pumpkin, maybe a little maple syrup, you can get really creative! That might make it more filling. This was more of a smoothie shot than a full filling cup. I didn’t really use specific measurements, I never do for my smoothies. I just kind of eye ball it. I would add liquids with caution, depending on how thick or thin you want your smoothie. The more milk/ice the thinner it gets. The more oats and things like peanut butter can thicken it up. I like a nice balance. If it passes the straw test, I think your good to go. In other words if you can sip it through the straw without intense struggle, than you got it right! 😉

I know it may look kind of gross, lol, but it’s actually really good. With a few adjustments, it would probably be way better.

 

Enjoy!
