Hey guys!

    So holiday season has officially started with the annual kick off of October and the upcoming holiday of Halloween! YAAYAYAYYAYAY! I don’t know about you guys but I get super pumped for Halloween; however this year since it’s seems I haven’t quite felt it. Thus I've compiled a list of songs, movies, books, and television episodes in no particular order that are all 2Spoopy4U.

Some movies and episodes may not be appropriate for some audiences due to language, violence, sexual content, fright, etc. so please be aware of that and ask permission if need be and they will have a * * * by them.

(feel free to click):


Watch all of them. It's that simple. Ghostbusters is a cult classic series that if you haven't seen you have to. 

The Lost Boys:
So I personally don't find this all too scary although I probably should. Very pretty boys with very evil motives are always dangerous and with the opening scene playing a song that will be stuck in your head for weeks after, the 1980's vampire never looked so good.

The Nightmare Before Christmas:
Tim Burton is my favorite there is no question about it. I think his work is genius and so beautiful. I'm so happy that this movie exists, and even though Christmas is a central theme here it is set in a world of Halloween and it's leading character is a skeleton, so boys and girls of every age, wouldn't you like to see something strange (and genius).

The Corpse Bride:
Tim Burton again with a gorgeous piece that sets the point of knowing when to step up, step down, hold on, and let go. With deadly (hehe) musical numbers and a quirky, star-studded cast, dark humor ties it all together to bring a masterpiece to the screen I recommend watching all year.  

* * * The Rocky Horror Picture Show:
Total chaos. Two words to describe this, brillaint, brilliant, utterly mad movie. Some of you may recognize it from being mentioned in "The Perks of Being a Wallflower". Either way Tim Curry blew me away and after watching it you're gonna wanna do the Time Warp again let me tell ya.

 Tim Burton popping up again this time with a movie that freaks me out to the soul. I went to the theatre to see this and I haven't watched it all the way through since. Not because it wasn't good; on the contrary actually. The immense attention to detail (See Mr. Bobo) was spectacular and I applaude the story line (it was a book prior I believe). HOWEVER, it scared me witless and it didn't help those Lalaloopsy dolls came out.

If you say his name three times in a row he'll show up and ruin things. But don't worry the same process reverses things (if you can get there).

* * * The Orphanage:
 A Spanish horror film that made me jump long after and whenever someone knocked on the door oh my god. Yet with a sentimental twist?

* * * Carrie:
A cinema legend adapted from Stephen King's novel. Sissy Spacek did a bang up job and I think Chloe Moretz is gonna nail it on the head with the new movie coming out on the 18th. 

* * * The Silence of the Lambs:
Cannibals. Lots and lots of cannibalism. Also mind games

* * * Fright Night:
You can watch the original if you prefer, but I favor the remake. Anton Yelchin, Colin Farrell, Toni Collette, David Tennant, and Imogeen Poots grace this film with Farrell being the good old "vampire next door" who just happens not to be your friend. No biggie.

* * * Sleepy Hollow:
Tim Burton again so you know it's a pretty good movie.

Hocus Pocus:
Halloween is not complete without The Sanderson Sisters appearing on our screens attempting to fulfill their revenge oath in late 20th century New England. Comedy and suspense and all good things Halloween, do not forget to watch this one (like you could)


The Birds:
 Alfred Hitchcock scares the dickens out of most when they watch this cult classic. 

* * * The Woman In Black:
I've only seen incriments of this movie and holy yeezus.

* * * Pet Sematary:
If Stephen King the Scare King rings a bell then you've got the jist of how scary this one is. If you have pets you'll be a little freaked around them for a day or two.

* * * Heathers:
Think Mean Girls with murder.

Wallace and Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit:
We need a little cute up in this joint so why not bring out the big guns with Wallace and Gromit. It's a little suspensfull but totally cute and worth the watch.

It’s The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown:
Now that we're on the track of cute, let's bring back those childhood memories and the fun of trick or treating (which by the by you can still do), kiddie Halloween parties, and just the innocence and fun of Halloween.

Television Episodes:
My So Called Life:
This show only lasted one season (sadly) so it's got a solitary Halloween episode TIP: Watch the whole season, OK? Not only will the Halloween episode make more sense, but holy cheese on a stick Batman it's relatable whether you're still in highschool or left it behind in your dust.

Freaks and Geeks:
Once again a show that joined the Firefly club (a.k.a. Shows That Were Really Good But Got Cancelled). Like above, it's got a solitary Halloween episode, but please watch the whole series.

Ten seasons producing fantastic holiday episodes.Take you're pick and go wild.

Let me help you with this one. The entire thing is spooky scary but watch out for character deaths that will throw you into emotional despair with smiles on their faces.

Doctor Who:
Any episodes with the Weeping Angels, "The Empty Child" and it's continuation, "The Unquiet Dead", "Midnight".

* * * Hannibal:
Obvious cannibalism, do not watch however if you aren't a fan of blatant gore.


The Old Willis Place:
 I read this book years ago and I'm still not over it.

* * * Dracula:
We all know what this is about, need I say more?

We Have Always Lived In The Castle:
 OK so I haven't read this one but I've heard it's pretty scary (if you've read it shoot us a message)

There you go guys! Have fun delving into this one and have a very happy Halloween! I leave you with this:

Auf Wiedersehen

Self-Esteem and Self-Acceptance!

Hey guys!

So self-esteem is­ what I’m here to talk to you all about today­! Well, not me exactly but rather I’ll be linking a video to this that explains in all the words I want to use (only better) how I stand on the matter of self-esteem and self-acceptance. To be perfectly honest I could take this opportunity and write a minimum of fifty pages ranting and raving and trying to put into words everything I feel about this issue and you guys would probably only be able to make out .05% strictly on the grounds that I told you only a few seconds ago what I would be talking about. Instead I've got a video that compresses my views (and let me stress that point, my views. Should I put one of those message screens here that networks use before an infomercial airs at 3 o’clock in the morning? No? Ok.)  into a nice 6 minute video. And NO I'm not cheating out of writing an entire article.

*Note, if you are not interested in cursing or as my ex-teachers used to say “foul-mouthed language” then please read the following quote to get the jist of the video: “A girl should be two things: who and what she wants.” –Coco Chanel

Here’s the video:

Welp, was that informative? What are your views on self-esteem and self-acceptance? We'd love to know! As usual to let us know send us an email at go.lovely101@gmail.com or leave us a comment down below (if you have a gmail account it works well).

Till next time



Salon Worthy Hair at a Drugstore/Product Review

Hey Lovelies!  Long time no see!
Let’s say you’re going out to have a fun night with friends, and you want to look like you stepped out of a fancy salon-the only problem is you’re broke. Well, as always we have a solution! Here is a list of drug store hair care products that are Salon-Worthy!

Shampoo & Conditioner:  Pantene Pro-V Fine Hair Solutions: Volume
Price for each: $ 6.49 I have been using this shampoo and conditioner for six months now, and it has been flawless! They add extra volume and shine to my thin hair without weighing it down, smells AMAZING, and helps repair my damaged hair. I love these products!

Clarifying Shampoo: Neutrogena Shampoo Anti-residue
Price: $5.99
If you use several products on your hair on a weekly basis, I would suggest using a clarifying shampoo once a week. My top favorite has always been the Neutrogena, because it gets rid of all the buildup in your scalp and hair! I recommend this product.

Hair spray: Treseme Hair spray Extra Hold
Price: Priced per store
For a long period of time, I was told to try this product and never got around to it until my friend was styling my hair one day. I haven’t stopped using it since then!  It keeps my style lasting all day, and is light weight on my head. I have found this product helpful and would recommend it to my lovelies!

Mousse: Joico Joiwhip Firm-Hold Design Foam Mousse
Price: $11.89
No matter curly or straight, this will hold your style! It lasts all day in my hair without feeling sticky or crunchy and looks amazing! Try to use a minimum of any mousse, because a little goes a long way! Now this might be a little pricey for a drug store product, but it is so worth it!

If you ladies have any drug store hair care products that you want to share you can send it to go.lovely101@gmail.com or leave a comment! I will see you next time lovelies!!


Get-the-Look: The Hobbit- Clothes To Go On An Adventure In!

Hey lovelies!

So anyone who knows me knows that I am a humongous fan of The Hobbit, and in honor of not only the DVD coming out but also the special look at the sequel, I have decided to come up with a Get-the-Look for a few of the characters (and having seen the film multiple times in theatres I've gotten a pretty good look at how the costume designers put together each look) and will be doing so for the upcoming releases of the las two installments- so WOOHOO two-three more years of The Hobbit Get-the-Looks. Now don't worry, I didn't put together looks that will have you carry 25 lbs in a travel sack (although you can if you want) but I did find the items at stores that are of reasonable price, and in most of the looks items are repeated for not only efficiency, but also for the use in other outfits- not just these. Also, all the looks can be worn spring-fall! Huzzah!

Bilbo Look 1:

Original look
Original look

So here we have my first look for Biblo! As you can see, I have added a red faux-leather jacket, a spring green light knit cardigan, a white peplum top with detailing around the collar with spring yellow capris pants and brown flats. To accessorize I found a simple brown belt with a gold buckle, and emerald green handbag with detailing, and beautiful flower earrings and a quiant charm bracelet.

Bilbo Look 2:

For my second Bilbo look, I decided to put together the same red faux-leather jacket with a skater dress with lace detailing, a thin and simple green belt with a bronze buckle, a light brown shoulder bag, cute yellow flats and to accesorize a different pair of flower earrings and a different- yet still quiant- charm bracelet.

Next up we have Bofur the dwarf! 

Original look

Original look

Bofur Look 1:

For Bofur's look it is obvious he wears much darker, gritier colors seeing as he is a dwarf. So sticking to that knowledge I placed together a brown faux-leather jacket with a stretch brown cami, dark wash skinny jeans (which if you prefer can be switched out with dark wash boot cut or flare or whatever), and mid-calf black buckled boots. To accesorize, I added a simple silver chain necklace with a scarf to add a pop of color, a few thick bracelets, a thin silver belt with a silver buckle, and lastly a faux-leather brown bag. 

Bofur Look 2: 

In Bofur's second look, I kept all of the accessories, the jacket, and the tank but switched out the jeans for a dark grey skirt with button detailing. If you're interested in taking a further look into each item, the links are as follows: 


Dwalin time!

Original look

Original look

Dwalin Look 1: 

Dwalin is no doubt a very tough dwarf and the key thing with his look is the sleevless vest. SOOOOoooooOOOO here I put together a look that is both tough, sleeveless, and still comfortable. A forest green vest, an electric green knit tank, simple black shorts, ankle boots with fuzzy cuffs (linked back to his fuzzy vest) and to accessorize a small shoulder bag with cross decoration and a pair of simple bolt stud earrings.

Dwalin Look 2:

My second Dwalin look is still tough, but in a dress. I kept the vest, earrings, and shoes but simply switched out the remaining pieces with an army green skater dress, a slightly larger shoulder bag, tribal print bracelets (to match his tatoos) and there we have it!

Did somebody say Ori?

Original look

Original look

Ori Look 1: 

For the adorable Ori's look, the color purple and knit wear comes into play. Here is a cardigan in an electric purple, and lightweight knit top in a grey goose color, acid washed purple capris, black flats with bow embelishment, a gritty black and whit fashion scarf and a simple, thin black belt with a silver belt. I completed the look with a heart ring, and a few purple and silver bracelets with matching earrings.

Ori Look 2:

For Ori's second look, I kept all but the shoes and capris. I instead placed into the look some lavendar shorts and to elongate the leg, some black buckled ankle boots! If you are interested in taking a further look into each item, the links are as follows:

"Fili. And Kili. At you're service."

Original look

Fili Look 1: 

Original look

For Fili's look, he wears more browns and oranges- and being part of the royal line, has a bit of regality apart of his attire while still keeping the rough and tumble side of his personality visible. With that being said, I kept that same air in both his and his little bro's look. A light brown faux-leather bomber jacket, a coral colored lightweight top, dark wash jeans, durable mid-calf lace up boots, a tan weaved belt, and a simple pocketed shoulder bag. To accessorize, and arrowhead necklace, a faux-leather black cuff with emebelishment, and a few gold rings with tribal print. 

Fili Look 2:

Fili's second look includes the same jacket, boots, bag, and necklace, only now with a coral colored dress, a chunky gold bracelet (mimicking the patterns on his original attire), and silver clumped studs! If you are interested in taking a further look into each item, the links are as follows:

Rings: http://www.forever21.com/Product/Product.aspx?BR=f21&Category=acc_jewelry&ProductID=1041854614&VariantID=  

Kili Look 1:
Original look


Out of the two brothers, Kili wears blues, silvers, and blacks- and like his brother- is part of the royal line and keeps an air of regality while still keeping the energetic, eager, and playful side showing. I've paired a jean jacket with a dark blue bowler shirt, dark wash jeans, black mid-calf boots with red laces, a black weaved belt with a silver buckle, and a black bag with gold embelishments. To accessorize, silver and blue earrings and a gold arrow ring.

Kili's second look includes the same bag, jacket, and shoes but now paired with a blue dress with black detailing (mimicking the patterns on his original attire), a large detailed necklace, a large bracelet, and silver clump studs.

Original look

Original look

Thorin Look 1:

Majestic. Fantastic hair. Stubborn. No, I am not talking about a pony, I am describing Thorin Oakenshield. Yep. The crowned prince himself. You know, the uncle to Kili and Fili. Yeah, anyways. For his look keeping his head held high and being strong for his people really reflects in his attire and I tried to reflect it back through mine. I paired a black biker jacket with a flowy tribal print shirt, dark wash jeans, a balck handbag, a thick black belt with a silver buckle, and black buckled ankle boots. I accessories with a necklace that has a mimicking pattern of his original outfit, a ring that reminded me of his sheild, and a bracelet which has a pattern not only matching his original tunic, but also reminds me of Smaug's scales (symbolism much for how he and Smaug have one or two things in common- more so in fact that they might not say?). 

Thorin Look 2:

Thorin's second look kept the same accessories (minus the belt, but feel free to add it if you'd like) and biker jacket, but I've switched out the bag for one with more studs and bolts for embelishment, yet still black. I've also added a smoke blue cami and a black with blue stripe and the shoes are now taller mid-calf boots with a double buckle.

Elf Look 1: 

Original look

Original look

The elves are beautiful creatures of elegance and grace so I put together two looks I think reflect that. I placed a white lace shirt with creame colored lace patterned pants, simple taupe flats, a jeweled gold bracelet and a jeweled thin and silver headband. 

Elf Look 2:

 For the second look I kept the same shirt, headband, and bracelet but exchanged the bottoms and shoes for a long flowing skirt (please note the skirt DOES NOT have to be blue because the elves are dying and are in the autumn and blue really isn't at all an autumn color) and gypsy sandals. If you ar interested in taking a further look into each item, the links are as follows:

Gandalf Look 1:

Original look

Original look

Gandalf's look is made up of light grey colors (obviously) and I think is really blended nicely in this first look. I have a flowy dark grey shirt with jewel embelishments and light wash jeans with silver thread. A weaved black belt matches nicely to the outfit and compliments the light grey bag. Of course we have his signature sparkly grey scarf (it's in the book OK?) and high-calf liquid silver slouch silver boots.

Gandalf Look 2:

Gandalf's second look is a simple, long grey dress that is very lightweight, the same boots, bag, and belt, the signature sparkly scarf (a favorite of mine, if you were wondering) and now a simple pendant necklace. The only thing missing is some hobbit weed. If you were interested in taking a further look into each item, the links are as follows:

Radagast Look 1:

Original look

Original look
Radagast's look is very earthy and nature orientated, so clearly like in his attire in the film, I replecated that same feel. A slouchy and flowy cardigan and a simple brown cami mathced with a simple taupe skirt, brown ankle boots with a bronze buckle, a green scarf, a brown bag with plenty of pockets, feather earrings, and a weaved watch. 

Radagast Look 2:

For the second Radagast look, I kept the accessories and shoes, but replaced the main outfit with a light brown/ taupe shirt and medium wash jeans. If you are interested in taking a further look at each item, the links are as follows:

Gollum Look 1:
Original look

Original look

Gollum's look was a bit tricky seeing as he doesn't wear clothes- only a loin cloth. But taking that into consideration, he does have skin and his skin is what these next two looks are modled after as well as the loin cloth. The shirt and the jeans in this look have a somewhat tattered back to match the look of his cloth. There is a simple taupe belt and gladitor shoes with gold circles for embelishment and gold hoop earrings (nudge nudge wink wink).

Gollum Look 2:

This second look has a creame colored crinkled cami to replicate his skin and a flowy skirt that could almost look shredded (in a good way). The same gladiator shoes in a different color, a gold circle chain belt and a pair of different gold hoops (again wink wink nudge nudge) are placed here to complete the look! If you are interested in taking a further look into each item, the links are as follows:

Cami: http://www.maurices.com/product/index.jsp?expcsl=1082339%7C%7C&productId=3754451

So there we have it lovelies! Outfits fit to go on an adventure in. When more films are released, I'll introduce the new characters and their looks! Please let me know if any of the links are broken and I'll fix it and give you the new one. Tell me what you think in the comments or our email and anything you guys want to see more of here. The Hobbit is now out on DVD and Blu Ray and the second installment will hit theatres this winter if I'm not mistaken so go see it and go get the film and go read the book if you haven't, it's fantastic!
Till next time.
