The Combatbarbie365_Shop is Up!

My daughter’s shop. Look around please. 🙂

Lights, Camera, Action

I am so unbelievably excited to share this news with you guys! I have been working hard & staying up late to get this Project up & running! Several years ago, I had this idea to start up my own business. In all truth, I kept making excuses any time I pondered starting. I wanted to create a brand, Forte By Farra, that empowered women with positive vibes & kindness. I wanted to create this platform for women of ALL ages & walks of life to come together & seek comfort; a place where they could laugh, tease, cry, share, & uplift their spirits. Forte means loud & strong or a niché. It was a play on words I wanted to incorporate into the very soul of my business. I’ve been posting random creatively under this idea for a couple years now, but I still haven’t made it come to…

DIY Halloween Costumes – Quick, Easy, & Toddler-Mom Approved

So much creativity!

Lights, Camera, Action

The Voodoo Priestess

Key Ingredient – lots of dark eye shadows & liquid eyeliner!

The Not-So-Scary Scarecrow

Use any Fall color! Yellow, orange, red, or a shade of brown!

The Colored Clown

I chose Pink but you could EASILY do ANY color you want. I might do a Blue Clown next year.

Red Riding Hood the Werewolf

I did 2 versions – 1st is a half & half makeup to show Red Riding Hood & her other persona, the Werewolf. 2nd was the full blown Wolf coming to live, complete with claw slashes and fake blood!

Skeleton Head 💀

A simple and effective costume idea. So many different versions of Skulls & Skeletons out there!

Next year I’m thinking of doing a different theme each week (3-5 looks for each) . The Nightmare Before Christmas will be the first week! I have an Ooogie Boogie Idea I can’t wait to…

Opening 11-5-2020 in Theaters: Let Him Go

I want to see this one. 🙂

Movies, Movies, Movies

Theaters: 11/5/2020

Wednesday,week #45 of 2020(11/5 – 11/8/2020)

The week following Halloween greets us with another new movie from Focus Features. They seem to be one of few studios taking advantage of all this cinematic spotlight. Hopefully soon others will join instead of going exclusively to streaming.

Let Him Go
[FIRST LOOK]

Don’t test the depths of a grandparent’s love for a grandchild. That seems to be the major conflict in this film starring two experienced, respected actors.

I’m ready to see what Kevin Costner and Diane Lane are up to in this film.

Anticipation: 6/10

Are you looking forward to seeing? Wherever you are watching movies, happy watching to you!

The Weekend Share #147

Share away.

Its good to be crazy Sometimes

I am still trying to get my head round the new wordpress thing. I am very confused by it. I also live in the world, if its not broken don’t fix it.

If you have never done this before, give it a go, you lose maybe 30 seconds of your life adding a link and you never know who might see it, I will, my mum probably will, so its well worth it.

Let Freedom Ring & Lessons Be Learned

My daughter’s tough lesson.

Lights, Camera, Action

In 2014, I had a couple beers while playing in my dart league. I thought I was good after not drinking for about 2 hours and was trying to be a good friend by giving someone else a ride home, who was really drunk. They only lived a couple blocks away. I sat too long at a green light while changing the music & ended up with a DUI. I got refusal to blow, the worst punishment. Long story short, it was because I ended up having an allergy induced asthma attack and couldn’t breathe into the machine hard or long enough. I tried and tried and was willing to do a blood test but didn’t know I had to ask for one.

I won’t deny that I deserved a DUI, I’ve made plenty of mistakes in my life, but I didn’t think I deserved a refusal when I had…

Bullet Journal Beginner

I wish I had done this for her when I was pregnant with her. A neat idea. 🙂

Lights, Camera, Action

I’ve been bullet journaling for a while now, but it’s taken some time to figure out exactly what I want & need to track. It’s also taken some trial and error with different kinds of trackers and designs. I’m finally ready to share some of my favorite trackers and pages! I still feel like a newbie even after a year of journaling but I am 100% more consistent now with tracking.

Why bullet journal? I’ve always been a big believer in the therapeutic power of journaling in general. With a bullet journal, I’ve been able to stay more organized and I hold myself accountable more often than not. It’s also interesting to analyze things like my sleep schedule or spending habits, so that I can better understand and adjust my habits to meet a healthier and more successful lifestyle. If you’re looking to get started or maybe just searching for…
