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.) 

IMG_9361

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!

My new Halloween Decorations

This is my first official Halloween post. This is the time of year where I get to finally break out the Halloween decorations. Actually last month is when I started pulling them out but what’s the difference. When I know the stores are taking out their seasonal stuff I always tell myself that I will only buy one new Halloween decoration for my collection. Sadly, that never happens.

I do make a lot of Halloween decorations for my home and to sell but I love shopping for Halloween. Even if I go into a store and don’t plan on buying anything, I still enjoy looking. It’s very therapeutic.

   Here are just some of my new pieces I picked up for Halloween this year as well as a new decoration that I made. I emphasized some because there is a lot more spooky items in my house that aren’t shown here. This is only the start of my Halloween posts and articles so stay tuned for some fun stuff and enjoy.

I love my new black pumpkins. The spike studded ones are very cool and ‘rock and roll’ and the smaller ones, I will be lighting up underneath with an electric tea light.

IMG_7596

This bronze skull and roses mirror is actually really beautiful and works well with my Snow White evil poison apple spell book.

IMG_7600

This is probably one of my favorite things I bought. I’ve always wanted to get some cool Halloween displays but one that was unique that not everyone would have. This Wasteland Pub light up display was the perfect thing. I love all the details and how it looks when it’s turned on.

IMG_7597

This cool antique style type writer works perfectly in my hall way alongside my golden claw hourglass timer with black sand.

IMG_7602

This top hat skull piece I actually made. I found a wreath that was absolutely destroyed and found the skull piece. I ended up turning the wreath into a small spooky broom. I attached the skull on top, which wasn’t easy, and added some extra glittery jewels to it. I then attached the pumpkin, the rose, and leaves. It doesn’t look perfect but it’s still fun.

IMG_7599

All I can say is that this sign is perfect for me, especially if you know me and know what my latest art installation I’m working on is. I love this sign.

IMG_7601

The Witches’s shoe and the “Little Shop of Horrors” plant were the first two new Halloween decorations I bought this for this year. They are both so cute.

IMG_7598

I’ve never had a wreath before and this year I decided to finally treat myself to a really cool skeleton one which I’m very happy with.

Make sure to leave a LIKE and COMMENT below if you like to decorate and go all out for Halloween. I’d love to hear what you like to do to celebrate this fun holiday.

How to Make Your House Your Home

   I’ve been wanting to do this article for awhile now. I’m not talking about how your house will never be a home unless you have specific items. This article is about not listening to other people who are blatantly telling you what your home should look like, otherwise it wouldn’t be your home, it would be their’s.

To create an environment that you are comfortable and in love with here are a few tips and ideas. First, think about what your personality and interests are. Are you big into sports? Are you a music lover? Do you like Modern art, etc.? 

Also don’t feel that your house has to have one style such as contemporary, modern, etc. I love mixing different styles. I love being creative.

Using my house as an example, my style is not just one thing. I have mostly vintage pieces mixed with rock and roll, movie posters that have great significance to me, a sugar skulls, and a lot of magical pieces and hanging art that both my husband and I did. My house is very eclectic. Even though I have more than one theme to my home style, I’ve made it so it all coincides together.

You don’t necessarily need to have a lot of money when furnishing and decorating your house. If you can afford custom furniture, that’s great but if you can’t, you can still have really cool furniture pieces by DIY.

   For example, you can take a table, like a small TV tray table or a cheap nightstand from good will and decorate it with images that you love from magazines or clippings and then seal them with strong adhesive. I’ve done that in the past and have had great results with it. You can also paint and repurpose furniture. Goodwill, flea markets, Target, and consignment shops are great places to check out and search for hidden treasures if you’re on a budget. If you need help on doing DIY furniture, there are many youtube tutorials that can help you out. This image below is from a DIY youtube channel. You just need to explore different channels.

Another tip is that if you have your home a particular style but find a piece of art, a special object, or something that doesn’t go with your decorative style, but you can’t live without it, definitely buy it. If you really love it, you’ll be able to incorporate into your decorations at your home.

Below are a few items from my home in different genres just to give you an idea how more than one  style can work in your home.

Happy October!!!

I’m so excited that today is the first day of October, my favorite month. Yesterday I already started decorating my house for Halloween which of course is my favorite holiday. My husband and I are going to the Halloween store today to see what new goodies we can find to add to our decoration collection, besides seeing all the cool costumes and accessories. I can’t wait to go. The pictures below are of a new decoration I bought last month of a skeleton bride and groom. When you turn it on, it lights up so beautifully with the purple lights.

   I have a few bride and groom skeleton pieces including  my bride and groom salt and pepper my awesome mom bought my husband and me years ago when we will first got engaged years ago. I can never have enough skulls and skeleton decor in my house. Below is another one of my awesome bride and groom skeleton pieces.

For those who don’t know this already about me, Autumn/Mabon is my absolute FAVORITE SEASON!  I love seeing the different colors the leaves change and one day I plan on going to the east coast specifically to see the “changing of the leaves” over there.

I want to wish everyone happy October first and hope you all enjoy this fantastic month as much as I will!

XOXO CARLIE

My Gothic Mystery Bag

img_0903

This evening when I came home from work I found a special treat in my mail box. I was so excited. It was my Gothic Mystery Bag that I ordered last week. The bag was from Dysfunctional Doll and it’s a called a ” Gothic Mystery Bag,” because when you open it, you don’t know what surprises you’ll see inside. Each box is different and contains at least $50 (usually more) of apparel, jewelry, purses, and more. When I saw that the mystery box was available now, I thought it was such a fun and cool concept. It’s also perfect for a Halloween present or other occasions Because every box is different, it gives a nice personal and special feel to it.

Here are the items I received tonight which I absolutely love. I can’t wait to rock them out work tomorrow. There’s not one thing I don’t like or wouldn’t wear or use.

Tonight I’m reviewing some new items of from Kreepsville666! I immediately fell in love. I got two things from them. One a hot pink latex skull purse that looks almost like a bowling bag and a hot and sexy tank that says, “Beauty Ghoul Dropout,” (A hilarious spin off from the Frankie Avalon song in the movie Grease.” I love wearing and using both of my items and so happy to have discovered this company. It mixes my favorite genres of horror, pinup, and psychobilly. I definitely recommend this brand to anyone who likes this style of clothing and accessories and feel very special to add these pieces to my collection of awesomeness.

A SIDE NOTE TO  PEOPLE WHO OWN OR WANT TO PURCHASE LATEX CLOTHING AND ACCESSORIES. THEY REQUIRE SPECIAL CARE. HERE ARE SOME TIPS ON CARING FOR LATEX RUBBER:

1. Sunlight will dry out latex. Avoid direct sunlight for long periods of time.

2. Avoid extreme heat around latex. Constant heat will pull the natural moisture from the latex.

3. Latex rubber in very humid conditions over time may cause mildew to appear. It’s wise to take care of your latex and keep it dry before storing it.

4. If certain moisturizers or makeup come in contact with latex, over time they will cause it to break down and/or become brittle.
