Hello ladies and germs

It's a music junkies best friend!
We all could use a little help to keep track of our tracks! lol

this journal is quite essential.

99 Cent Store Halloween Haul // Hannabal Marie

Hello ladies and gentlefish
I bring you another Halloween Haul.
Yes, another one.
If you thought the last couple of hauls were good--you ain't seen nothing yet.
Man, 99 cent store is popping with all the cool stuff this year.
I swear, it's like I find something new and amazing each time I check it out--which is daily. lol

So, to make this post short but sweet...
Let us get into this:
I actually went to the 99 cent store a few times throughout this month.
The first trip I got these few items.

Thrift Store Finds: Ceramics, Tiny Trinkets & Haunted Dolls // Hannabal Marie

Hello ladies and gentlefish
I have another thrift haul for you. 
This time it's not Halloween related, just random and full of some awesome finds. 

I don't really have a "theme" when I do these haul posts--I just put everything I get for the week/month/ect inside my bedroom and allow that to accumulate throughout a course of time until something in me ignites and forces me to post like I've been doing now. lol

Just to let people into the reasoning behind these constant post updates--I do a lot of my main shopping at thrift stores, antique shops, mom-pop shops, garage sales, yard sales, dumpster dives, ect. lol 
Most of what I get, I truly collect...other times it's just a damn good deal I couldn't pass up. 
I either keep it for my own sick little obsession, give it away to friends/family/ect or sale it on the side for some extra income that is then used to support my bad habit all over again. lmfao

What I get I usually store inside this HUGE plastic tub and allow it to gather until I get enough stuff to post for the likes of you all. 
I will admit, I have a bit of a problem. 
I can't stop thriftng, I truly can't. I love it so much. 

I have built up a good enough collection of things for you all today--so allow us to get into it:

Thrift Store Finds: A Ton Of Halloween Stuffs, VHS Tapes & Vinyl Records // Hannabal Marie

Hello ladies and gentlefish
Another thrift haul for you all.
I can't believe how fruitful I have been in this month of Sept.
It has been FULL of Halloween surprises
and it's not even October yet. lol

I originally wanted to make a post doing a photo walk-through of the thrift store but the shelves that usually stored all the Halloween items were running on empty. 

The photos I did snap where pretty much all I found that was "Halloween" related.
The following items I snagged, I actually had to dig around in areas that weren't necessarily noticeable but I found them and I got them nonetheless. lol 

It was also pretty busy in the store (I wonder why! lol) 
So, I couldn't really snap away like I wanted too. 

Oh well, here are the two images of the place. lol

99 & Dollar Tree Haul: Halloween Goodies Galore // Hannabal Marie

Hello ladies and gentlefish
Tis the season for excessive spending--at least for me.
I literally save up all my funds for this special time of spooky year.

It's important to me and mine because it's the only time of year I can purchase household items for ALL YEAR ROUND.
I am that kinda gal, people.
I sport my skeletons and bats all year.
Christmas? Santa Claus in a vampire cape.
Easter? A skull in a bunny suit.
You see, I always like to include some form of "spook" to all other holidays. lol

Anywho, this year I have found that the dollar stores are KILLING ME with all their awesome amazing and downright BADASS items.
Last year wasn't as fruitful but this year--every time I go back, I end up finding something NEW I cry about.
So, that's the reason behind all these frequent updated 99/dollar tree posts.
I buy too much in one day only to go back again the following day with another basket full.

I'm dying from all of it.
Truly dying.
So much dying.

Anywho, Let us get into this post:

Love Mail: Halloween Crafting Stuffs & A Mini Crafting Haul // Hannabal Marie

Hello ladies and gentlefish
A lovely friend of mine sent me a bunch of amazing Halloweeny stamps and crafting items.
She knows how much I adore this holiday season, so she just wanted to send a few goodies to get me in the holiday spirits.

I am so in love with the bunch of things I got!
I will surely put these stamps and stickers to great use!

I was so inspired that I went out and did a little craft shopping.
I really feel the holiday season coming into full circle and now I am so pumped up to get some stuff going. I plan to do a ton of things for Halloween--for the sake of keeping old traditions alive and new ones started. 

So, for those who have been around for a while and wish to know--Yes, I will be doing a lot this Halloween. From spooky crafts, to makeups and to even scary little tunes sung by yours cruelly. 

I am so inspired and so happy.
Enough with this talk, allow us into the small showcasing of both the goodies I got and the mini haul of items I bought.
Here. We. Gooooo....

Birthday Balloon Bufoon // Hannabal Marie

My birthday was August 1st 
I had a lovely party with my family and one thing (among the vast amounts I got!) 
was a bunch of balloons. 

They have been sitting in my room, deflating a bit, so I thought I would do something with them.
Just a small something to get the occasion on photo.

So, I did a tiny little photoshoot using them.

Nothing fancy, just messing around with my oddness. 

I hope you like it and understand the significance behind the photos...because I don't. lol
I just did want I felt and they came out pretty good. 

I don't know, just felt like flopping on a messy wig and playing with my balloons.
Heh, that sounds gnaughty. lol
I like this one. Like youth lost to the wind. idk but yeah, looks nice.
This is how I feel inside my head. lol

That's pretty much it.
Just messing around and having fun with my deflating balloons.

COLLECTIVE HAUL: Vtg Halloween, Copperware, Preserved Butterflies + A Dummy // Hannabal Marie

Hello ladies and gentlefish
I have been buying and collecting some more stuff here and there.
It's pretty much a hobby of mine to check out the local thrift shop 
and see what they might have inside it's walls. 
Sometimes I buy one thing, sometimes I buy in bulk...
It all depends on the day and the finds. 

I have a post here full of a few months worth of collecting and finding for you all to see. 
I don't really know why I like thrifting, some people find it repulsive..I find it therapeutic. 
I just love the history and story each piece has...
and that underlining truth that someone, somewhere, had this item in their possession at one point in their life...
and now I have it in my own household.
It pleases me, to say the least, to know that a part of them lives within me. 
idk, call it weird but that is just how I see things.

My "type" of find is pretty much anything different and strange.
The more odd, the better. 
I have a tendency to get things most people would question me about 
because I feel more drawn to that type of specific than anything off the racks of some mass marketed retail store.

This haul here has something inside of it that I have been wanting my wholeeee life.
I won't spoil the surprise, though I think it spoiled itself with the title and intro photo 
but I still will keep a secret. lol

Anywho, let us get into this now:

Halloween Inspired Henna // Hannabal Marie

Hello boils and ghouls, 
Since Halloween is my favorite time of year--I am planning to do something everyday until it arrives.
Be it something as simple as singing a song about the beautiful day or messing around my crafts.
I decided to do a little Henna today and I did just that.
Me, my mom and my brother all sat down and played around with some Henna.

I wanted the design to inspire the season, so I made it a little Halloweeny~

So, enough talky talk--let's get to the showcasing!
