Weekend wasting

I spent my weekend doing nothing productive. On Saturday I hung out with my mom. We went to a couple thrift stores, but didn't find anything worth while. She and I spent most of the day redecorating 3 of the bedrooms at her house. 
Sunday, my sister, brother-in-law, and nephew met me for brunch. After brunch we braved the Sunday mall crowd since the baby needed new shoes. We also ended up going to the park for a bit, but it was too hot to stay out long. 
After they left my friend picked me up for dinner and a movie. We saw the world's end. It was a lot funnier than I thought it would be. 

I'm hoping to take some new pictures tonight since I didn't get anything done over the weekend, but we'll see.

we will find ourselves praying before the alter the way they taught us to.



*more flowers. i'm planning on doing a post about skin care...maybe tomorrow. also, i have some new photos that i will be posting soon. i'm hoping that the weather warms up just a little bit so i can have one more go at underwater photography, but who knows if it will.

*in other news, i'm planning a trip to austin in september. i've never visited austin before so if anyone has any suggestions on stuff to do or places to check out please let me know. i'm planning on taking my camera on the trip, but i don't know how many pictures i'll actually get.

this place

i think you should stay away from here....

...there are ghosts in the walls
and they crawl in your head through your ear.



*the grocery store by my house always has the most beautiful flowers. yesterday when i saw these roses i knew i had to take them home, so i bought 2 dozen in 2 different shades of pink. not only did i get some exciting photo props, but my house now smells softly of roses. plus, this fits into my plan of enjoying the little things since one of the little things on my list is having fresh flowers in the house.

*this photo is made up of 3 different images. the photo and the texture are mine, but the skull is a stock image i found online.

in the land of dreams

last night i dreamed that we met again.

we were waiting for the train and you walked up to me. I didn't recognize you at first, but your memory came flooding back when you started speaking.

i told you i was waiting for someone, but i wasn't sure who.

when we parted, both of us wanted to ask the other to go with them, but neither of us said anything.

i found my seat, still unsure of my traveling companion as they had yet to make themselves known. soon you took the seat next to me.

you were the one i was waiting for all along, and i was the one you were traveling to see.

this is what fate is.....but this is just a dream

and i have to wake up.



*my dream from last night was still so vivid when i woke up that i had to write it down before i forgot. i hadn't dreamed about you in a very long time and i'm still confused as to why i did.

remind me

sometimes we all need something simple to remind us of who we are and where we're going.



*just something small for sunday. i'm currently looking for some lovely outdoor areas for some photos i want to shoot since the weather has been cool.

keep watch

who will be there to keep vigil over your body when your soul departs?

to keep watch and make sure you don't return

as something other worldly.

don't worry love, i'll keep watch for you.



*so i finally felt up to doing a little shoot.....which is based on cemetery man. i love the scene where he keeps watch over her body to make sure she doesn't come back as a zombie. if you haven't seen this movie, it's one of my favorite zombie movies and definitely worth the watch.

*i'm hoping to be back to my normal posting schedule. this sickness has really drained my energy and i feel like all i've been doing lately is sleeping.

Day 5

This week I decided to try going a week without makeup. Typically I cringe at the thought of leaving the house without makeup, but I had read about how giving your skin a little break every now and then can help with blemishes and such. We'll call it a skin detox. It's meant to help restore the natural balance of oils in the skin as well as letting your pores breathe. 
The first couple of days I felt very, very, very self conscious, but I stuck with it and relied heavily on the fact that my glasses cover a good portion of my face. Now that it's day 5, I've come to enjoy the extra fifteen minutes I have in the morning due to skipping my makeup routine. My face also feels much fresher and doesn't get super oily around mid day. Also, since it's been super humid lately I don't have to worry about having raccoon eyes from stray mascara particles. 
Since I'm still a little under the weather I'll probably be doing a few posts about the type of makeup I've been using along with a few of my other favorite skin care products. 

*super flattering cellphone picture, right?

Not dead

I know I've been really quiet lately, but I'm hoping my time amongst the dead is almost over. I've done nothing but sleep the past 2 weeks in an attempt to get over being sick. I had finally managed to get over the fatigue and achy feeling last Friday only to be met with a stomach flu...which is still kicking my ass. In the meantime, I plan on posting some new music I've been listening to as well as some movies that I've watched (since that's all I've felt like doing for awhile). 
I've also been sketching away on some new photo ideas that I can't wait to try out.

Dead space

It's been awhile since I've posted anything here. Recently I've been having a lot of pain in my joints so it makes it hard to do anything other than sleep. I'm trying to do some work that isn't too involved, but with my regular work schedule it's been hard. I hope to be feeling better this week.
