Good Foggy Morning

CwUcDFUXUAABCTy

There is nothing better than getting up earlier than usual, like me this morning, brewing your delicious coffee to pour into your Beetlejuice coffee mug, watch “Lords of Salem,” in your matching sweater while the morning begins and you see the beautiful misty morning fog. But that’s just me. Wink wink!

Unboxing and Show & Tell of the GOTHIC BEAUTY, “Rebel Rose” from Wet n Wild

I was so excited for the ENTIRE LIMITED EDITION “REBEL ROSE COLLECTION” from Wet n Wild. Big shoutout to them for this. This collection is so gorgeous especially since it’s all about roses which you all know, I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE ROSES! Last week I shot two videos for my youtube channel about this collection because there was so much to unbox, look at, and discuss, and I didn’t want to make an hour long youtube video. Instead I did it in two parts which I will post both below. 

Let me know what you think of my videos please and if you have questions about any of the products mentioned in these videos. This is the very first collection from Wet n Wild that has SKINCARE!!!!!!!!!! It’s so awesome. Go check out the videos here and make sure to subscribe to my youtube channel if you haven’t already and leave your likes, and comments! Thank you so much everyone. You all are so supportive of me with the articles and videos I do. 

 

XOXO CARLIE

 

Morbid Mistress

I briefly mentioned Morbid Mistress in my last youtube beauty and fashion video, “My New Beauty Faves,” which by the way, I’m not sure if you can see closely at the thumbnail I created for that video but I’m holding her product in my hand. If you haven’t see my latest youtube vid, please go check it out on my youtube channel as well as in my previous article here that I did last week, called, “BRAND NEW SKINCARE AND BEAUTY FAVES.” Definitely watch the video.

I met Sommer Schmucker about two months ago or maybe even a little more, and I knew I would instantly connect with her. She’s the owner of Morbid Mistress and you all know that I love reviewing and writing articles on new businesses, especially if their local or more importantly that I love their products. Ms. Morbid Mistress definitely didn’t disappoint me with her amazing products as well as her beautiful energy. When choosing from the large amount of perfumes she has in her stock, I asked her which I should get and it’s a perfume called, ” This is Me,” which I’m so glad I chose. The scent is so delicious and reminds of this VIXEN perfume I wore in high school, before they discontinued it. It came in coffin packaging which was really cool cause I was total hot goth.

Here is a mini bio directly from Sommer talking about herself, how she started Morbid Mistress, and a lot more. ENJOY!

“My name is Sommer. I am the owner of Morbid Mistress. I am based out of Goshen,IN. I also work full time for an aerospace machine shop, (which by the way, I think that so awesome my girlfriend.” I would eventually love to work from home. That is my goal.

I started my business this year in February and I launched my products in April. Over the past ten years, I’m always received compliments on how good I smell. (Again something her and I have always had in common, truly.)

I’ve been making my own perfume since I can remember which gave me the idea of making it for others. I love Mixology and Chemistry so this was the perfect place for me. I drew my logo and sent it to one of my friends to recreate. I have always been a dark and creepy person. I love horror and all the things that come with it. (Another thing we have in common.) 

My promise to you guys and future clients, is to make four new scents per month as adding new goodies. I can’t wait to share with everyone.

All my products which are (VEGAN AND CRUELTY FREE AND WORK ON ALL SKIN TYPES,) are listed on Etsy under, http://www.morbidmistresstm.etsy.com You can also purchase my products (which by the way are all though my other social media sites. Follow my Morbid Mistress facebook page so you’ll be the first to know when I have new future release dates. On instagram, my name is, @MorbidMistressPerfume which you can see my Etsy link in my bio.”

I’m so glad that I met Sommer and in the short while we’ve known each other. We have so much in common and have a lot of the same beliefs, and a lot more. She’s become one one of special spooky sisters. I definitely recommend checking out all her perfumes on her site but a great one to start is the one I have, “This is Me,” depending on what fragrances you like. “This is Me,” is made with, White Lilies, rose water, fresh picked fuji apples, White peach, Jasmine, Bergamont, and white sand.I love knowing Sommer and I love her company. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND MORBID MISTRESS!

Little Black Bats

Alright I have done many many many articles on jewelry and accessories, especially unique jewelry that is handmade and/or you can’t find anywhere else. I got a brand new store and special friend that creates amazing handmade unique jewelry. Her name is Jenna Michals and her company is Little Black Bats which is such a cute name. I instantly connected with her and her work. Little Black Bats mostly makes Halloween, spooky, and magical inspired pieces but they also make fun and funny pieces as well. I’ll include the store information at the end of course.

   I bought two pieces from Little Black Bats. The first one is my dark circus cluster necklace which reminds me of a spooky Alice in Wonderland piece.

   The second one I bought was a my “DEAD BUT DELICIOUS” green and black necklace which the moment I saw it in Jenna’s shop I had to have it. It’s a quote from a brilliantly funny and spooky film spoof called, “What we do in the shadow” from New Zealand. (By the way, if you haven’t seen that movie, you MUST see it. I connected with my sister Suzy Owen who is also from there, and we both saw it together the same night, just on different sides of the world.)

Here is how Little Black Bats got started. Hope you enjoy this article and you must check out Jenna and the shop:

“Little Black Bats was born out of frustration of needing a creative outlet. In the very beginning, I was making laser-cut acrylic jewelry, but soon after realizing it wasn’t the right medium for me, I changed gears and started working with shrink plastic. It gave me the freedom I was looking for to create, and three years later, the wheels haven’t stopped turning. I seek inspiration from everything—mainly music, movies, gothic and horror subcultures, medical oddities, and more.”

Another thing I adore about Jenna as a person and why I think we became fast friends is that we have a lot of important things in common, besides both liking spooky fun, stuff include that we’re both artists, we both believe in supporting artists, we both have a strong work ethic, and more. Definitely check Little Black Bats on all their social media sites and especially the store. You won’t be disappointed.

She’s Glowing

Instead of doing my first Sunday Morning Coffee Chat, which I was planning on doing, I decided to share Aurelio Voltaire, who you should know by now on here. Not only is he an incredible singer, he also does a lot of DIY gothic and spooky home projects. Click his name here in his tag and you’ll see. 

I wanted to post and share this song because the song is so beautiful. It is definitely in the rock and goth genre but the way he sings it reminds me a lot of the groups, The Cure, Echo and the Bunnymen, and other 80’s groups. It also reminds me of the Airbourne Toxic Project. This is one of my favorite songs by Voltaire and definitely listen to it and check out his YouTube channel.

 

Holiday Gifts From Annabel Lee

   You first heard me talk about Alexandra Walden who runs the awesome blog and newsletter, http://www.meandannabellee.com/ in October. She introduced me to the Samhain Society which I wrote about here as well. If you haven’t read my post about what the Samhain Society is, definitely go check it out, but in a nutshell, the Samhain Society is a society of bloggers and website creators that love all things spooky like me, and write a lot about horror and gothic subjects. Even though not all my articles and posts here are spooky/horror related, I do write a lot of that topic and everyone who follows me here, my art site, and all my social media know that I LOVE CREATING SPOOKY DARK WORKS OF ART AND AM A HORROR LOVING WHORE!

   Besides Alexandra’s newsletter and blog, she also has an etsy shop where she makes and sells really cute gothic home-making items. For the holiday season, I recently purchased two items from her. The first thing I bought was a gift for my husband. He loves having his tea so I bought him a handmade BLACK BUTTERFLY TERRARIUM CAMEO TEA BALL INFUSER which he absolutely loved and will definitely use a lot.

   The other item I bought from her was a gift for myself. I got a Victorian Gothic Tea Cup Candle with a yummy currant scent. I bought the last Alice in Wonderland yellow and white striped cup and saucer which I was very excited about. All the Victorian cup and saucer candles are gorgeous and it was very hard for me to pick which one I wanted but when I saw the Alice in Wonderland one with the detachable saucer and that it was the last one, I immediately purchased it….and I’m very glad I did.

   If you are looking for some holiday gift ideas for your spooky or gothic loving friends or for yourself, definitely check out Alexandra’s etsy shop called, MeandAnnabelLeeShop.
