Enjoy my latest beauty product review video and enjoy with me as we count down to Halloween!
I hadn’t been into a Joann’s in forever and I heard and watched on Voltaire’s youtube channel that they carried a nice size variety of spooky Halloween pieces, so I made it my mission to check out what they had to offer for the Witch’s New Year.
They had a bunch of blank skeletons in people and in animals that are perfect for painting your own skeleton crafts in different positions plus a bunch of DIY crafts, but the first aisle that caught my eye was the Halloween spooky home goods section where I spotted a bunch of cute dish and hand towels where I chose two that says, “I’m Just here for the BOOS,” and a purple towel with skulls that will look perfect into my kitchen. They all have matching trim lace at the bottom which is a really cute marathon. I actually might go back to get a few more.
The next thing I spotted was black and white skeleton ribbon. The designed reminded me of the Haunted Mansion wall paper print and I thought this ribbon would be perfect for my Halloween art craft pieces that I’m selling.
Next thing I saw in their small Halloween costume/accessory section were skeleton and rose clips, perfect for sugar skull collection and perfect for my hair,
The last thing I picked up when waiting in line to check out were a very cute witch pair of socks, one pair solid violet, the other pair, green and purple striped socks that say with witch shoe images, “If the Shoe fits.”
They had so many cute things at Joann’s and I probably would’ve bought more stuff if the sales girl I asked a simple question which was if they had something in the store that was listed on their website. It’s ok, they lost my money, and I saved money for my next VINTAGE and HALLOWEEN HAUL!
Today is the first day of Yule which represents the shortest day of the year, the winter solstice and I really enjoyed celebrating today. I decorated for this season and holiday and am spending the evening with the love of my life. He is always so supportive of everything I do.
In case you’re wondering, some of the more traditional decorations for Yule include burning a Yule log, pinecones and nuts, candles (especially in the colors of gold, silver, green, and red, and more. Like I said in my previous Yule post from this morning, the holiday starts today and goes until New Year’s Day so decorate for the changing of the season if you desire. It doesn’t matter if you practice Wicca or not. You are free to celebrate anything you like!
Here are some of my decor from today. It’s simple but beautiful. Leave a comment if you decorate for Yule of have any questions or ideas. Sending lots of love and Happy Holidays to you all!
It’s official, my favorite holiday EVER! I wanted to wish all my family and friends, all my sister witches, my husband, and to all you supporters out there who enjoy my blogs and website! Have a wickedly fabulous HALLOWS’ EVE!!!

I couldn’t resist the urge to post yet another picture of my heavy metal sister Rhonda Burnett. As a new ritual, I should put a new makeup picture of her every week. Hehehe. The reason for posting about her again, not that I need one, is because of her incredible makeup look that turned herself into Maleficent. She looks absolutely stunning and if we lived closer I know we’d be doing our makeup together almost daily.
Enjoy another one of Rhonda’s wonderful makeup looks. I’m thinking of attempting this makeup job in the future. We shall see.
My big sis who I recently did a feature on my site is the Tim Burton tattooed and amazing horror makeup artist, Rhonda Burnett. She just posted this photo of her on social media and I thought the look was brilliant so I had to show it off tonight!!! Make sure to check out her first feature interview on here a few articles back!
Hope you like and make sure to check my sister out. Love my sister Rhonda!!!
I’ve been wanting to feature the beautiful and amazing Rhonda Burnett for awhile and today is finally the day. I’ve known Rhonda for over three years and I refer to as my “Big Sister,” because she is just that. She is very nurturing, giving, and one of the kindest and strongest women I know. She also loves Halloween, the horror genre, and all things spooky as much as I do which is never a bad thing.
Besides all the sweet qualities Rhonda has, she has the most amazing and sickest tattoos I’ve ever seen. She loves horror, especially Tim Burton and a lot of her ink are Burton characters which I absolutely am in love with. You can’t go wrong with Tim Burton in my opinion.
She had a lot of ink done when I first met her and has gotten a lot more done since I’ve known her and I must say that all of her tattoos are well thought out as to where she wants them and what exactly she wants done. I love her attention to detail. Rhonda’s ink is so amazing that she has won awards for it and has been published in magazines which you can see below. Even her references are very specific to her style and don’t look like anyone else’s. Check out these photos and clips of her spectacular tattoos!
Here is a little background how the gorgeous Rhonda fell in love with the horror genre and specifically Tim Burton films.
“When I was 5 my uncle Tom got me into classic horror films… My first one was Frankenstein. I called him Frankie because I couldn’t say Frankenstein… And it took off from there. I’ve been into horror every sense. I rented the movie The nightmare before Christmas for my sons and I to watch and fell in love with it.. From that point on I got into Tim Burton films. I got my first sleeve of the nightmare before Christmas movie on my right arm which took about 5 months to complete. Then I went on to get more tattoos of some of my favorite Tim burton movies, like Beetlejuice and Lydia, Edward Scissorhands and Frankenweenie I eventually got a recent portrait of Tim Burton on my leg… I thought to myself I love his movies and him so much I thought I need a tattoo of him on me. So I that was the last tattoo I got. 3 of my tattoos have won numerous awards. I’ll send pictures when I get them all gathered.
I really like to dress up during the month of October into some of my favorite characters. My Edward Scissorhands tattoo was featured in Inc skin magazine as well as my Nightmare Before Christmas sleeve.” -Rhonda
Besides all the sisterly qualities she has that I mentioned above, Rhonda is also extremely artistic and can do her makeup to completely change her look and can make herself look like she stepped out of the movies which I absolutely love. I can’t get over her makeup skills and talent and if her and I lived closer together, we’d be doing our makeup together every day. Below are just some of the many looks she has created. It’s just a tiny taste. If I could I would post a lot more of her photos than I already have. I love showcasing other people’s talent and art, especially when it’s someone that I really love.
I really admire Rhonda. She has such a kind and beautiful soul and is all about working hard and family which she loves more than anything else which is so beautiful. She also supports her friends and the work that they do, including myself and my art which I greatly appreciate. I also appreciate how much she loves Halloween, the horror genre, and all things spooky which is never a bad thing.

Like I said in my previous post, here’s my sister Angela with her amazing makeup looks and tattoos. For her makeup, one is of her as Marilyn Manson, one as the Pinup Dollface killer from the movie, “The Strangers,” and as Captain Spaulding from the movie, “House of 1000 Corpses.” She did her looks all herself and I’m hoping to do a tutorial with her in the future.
For her tattoos, I love all the horror movie ink she has had done. Also her spooky sexy Halloween chest piece is absolutely amazing and didn’t have it when I did her first feature here. It’s one of her newer works of art and I’m absolutely in love with it.
Angela is such a talented chick as well as extremely kind, sweet, and supportive which is why I consider her like a sister to me. I’m so happy she is in my life.

Love you sis!!!!
To see the first feature I did on her go to:
Even though we are in the month of August and I’m in the middle of doing different summer posts such as my “10 Looks for Summer,” which by the way I have three more summer outfit inspirations to show, I thought I would take a moment to talk about my favorite holiday, HALLOWEEN or SAMHAIN (The Witches New Year.) I’m already taking orders and working on commissions specifically with extra spooky themes such as my gargoyle candy jars that I posted and talked about on my new art site, http://carliemichellesoratartworld.com/blog/ (which you should definitely check out and follow if you haven’t already.)
I’m so excited for the countdown to Halloween and I already want to take out my decorations to put out. Not that my house doesn’t have a bunch of spooky cool stuff out ALL YEAR ROUND like my authentic autographed Freddy Krueger glove that was used as one of the gloves in the films, my Freddy Krueger face mold, my skull collection, my horror movie posters, etc., but you can never have enough. I’ve already gotten some new decor for my house and I plan on starting my Halloween shopping this weekend since a lot of the stores like Michael’s, Cost Plus, and Pier 1. It’s never too early to start shopping for Halloween. I figure if people can start buying stuff for Christmas in June, I can start buying stuff for Halloween.
Mixing Pinup and Halloween is always a good thing and here’s some models rocking some “Spooky Pinup” style Halloween makeup to get you into the mood.
I ALSO INCLUDED A FEW LINKS TO SOME OF MY PREVIOUS HALLOWEEN ARTICLES I POSTED HERE IN CASE YOU HADN’T SEEN OR READ THEM. MAKE SURE TO PLEASE CHECK THEM OUT AND LEAVE YOUR COMMENTS THERE.
With all the craziness that’s been going on, I feel more connected to Halloween than usual and wanted to get people early into the Halloween spirit. To continue with that, I decided to do a post after this on my sexy Heavy Metal Horror sister, Angela. For those of you who don’t remember, a few years ago I did a feature on her ( https://bombshell2016.blog/2016/01/05/heavy-metal-witch-angela/ ). If you didn’t see it, go check it out now. I’ve known her for a little over four years now (Wow time goes by fast) and I consider her to be like a sister. She is very special to me and has many talents. One of these talents include doing INCREDIBLE makeup looks, most of which are horror based. I wanted to show off some of her talent as well as some of her fantastic horror tattoos, so stay tuned to the post after this.
Here are my questions of the day. First do you like Halloween? What are some of your favorite things to do for Halloween? What are your favorite Halloween traditions? I’m curious to hear what everyone says. Let me know and enjoy the countdown to the best holiday of the year.
