friday's fancies #9: happy halloween!

friday's fancies #9: happy halloween!

if budgets didn't exist, i would be scooping up everything you see here, teasing & curling my hair for hours on end, & putting on as much makeup as possible, to the point that i could pass as a blonde-haired, fair-skinned kardashian sister. i was toying with multiple ideas for this week's friday's fancies over on {long distance loving}, but i thought dressing in dark, sparkly things & calling myself the blonde kardashian sister would be the most fun. 

first things first: those louboutins. i'm a little bit in love. and what better to complement those magnificent booties, than black, wax-finish skinnies & a sparkly top? if you answered 'nothing,' then you're right. moving on, we have the requisite dark opi polish. every time i watch those crazy kardashians on tv, i can't help but admire their manicures. and i want 'my private jet,' but i can't find it anywhere. that, apparently, is kim's signature color (sad that i know that? probably). 

as far as makeup goes, all i can think of when i think kardashian, is smoked out, heavy eyes & nude lips. and to say i'm in love with it is an understatement. i finished the look off with some elegant-but-fun black drop earrings & a rocker-vibe mixed metal ring. 

i hope everyone has a happy halloween! i will be headed over to my college town for homecoming tomorrow, but then i will be headed out for a night on the town, costume & all!

Friday Fancies is becoming a favorite of mine. I'll ignore the whole Kardashian praise because I love you and this outfit.

This look is fabulous! I'd love it even for normal day to day (ok maybe night to night) wear, not just as a costume! You did a great job putting together a very "kardashian" look!

Hope you have a fantastic Halloween weekend!

about me.

Hello! And welcome to siddathornton.
My name is Lauren. I am 29 years old. Here are a few random factoids about me & my life...
- I'm originally from Louisiana, but I live in North Carolina with my husband, Justin. We aren't from New Orleans. Every time we tell someone we're from Louisiana, this is immediately what they assume. We actually come from a town in northwest Louisiana - Shreveport - which may as well be Texas, it's so close to the state line.
- Due to my love of the written word, I majored in Journalism at Louisiana Tech University. Tech is located in the quaint town of Ruston, Louisiana, and I like to think that attending college in a small town shaped much of who I am today. And as much as I would have liked the overly-romaticized dream of becoming a professional writer to have come to fruition for me, I'm in the midst of a career change, via occupational therapy school.
- There are a few things for which I have an unhealthy obsession: reading, co…

readingFierce, by Aly Raisman. A couple of weeks ago, I finally finished Big Little Lies, by Liane Moriarty, which I really enjoyed.
writing a lot in my bullet journal, including adding photos and keepsakes. It's been a while since I've done this kind of journaling, and it really is my favorite.
listening to the Office while typing out this blog post. Nothing makes me feel better like this show does.
thinking that I am really glad that Justin and I built in some trip recovery time on the back end of our trek to Colorado. It really does take some time to get re-acclimated to the time zone you've returned to. We've both been feeling so tired since we got back.
smelling coffee and donuts. The breakfast of champions.
wishing for some tortilla soup today. I had some at a place called Hacienda Colorado in Denver. It was so good, and I've been craving it ever since.
hoping for a productive and joyful week ahead.

the sunday currently.

When I started blogging on siddathornton back in July of 2011, the beginning of my currently posts wasn't far off. I've long enjoyed compiling lists of what's going on in the moment, but I never thought about making it a link-up or an always-on-Sundays thing until September 16, 2012. As you can read in that post, I was elated, due to the responses I was getting from other bloggers, letting me know that they, too were doing "currently" posts and had decided to dedicate the writing of them to Sundays each week. Thus, The Sunday Currently was born, and I have currently penned over 100 posts, some with over 50 people linking up and sharing what they're up to, too. If you feel so inclined, please join! Let's celebrate the little moments of our lives that we never want to forget.
