monday night masquerade

last week was a bit of a "lay in bed" week for me. i told you all i wasn't feeling well a couple weeks ago, but it wasn't exactly the flu. i went to the doctor again (i haven't really talked about it on my blog, but i have a lot of strange medical problems for being young and relatively "healthy".) turns out i needed to have some tests ran as soon as we could get on the doctor's schedule. so friday, i went "under" for some internal biopsies... not fun! all of the results will be back after thanksgiving, so hopefully i can get some medicine and get back in action. for now, i remain exhausted & in bed whenever i can be ~ so i officially apologize if i haven't gotten back to emails, comments, twitters, etc hopefully soon!

no matter how i feel, i am really excited for tonight. a couple of lovelies are hosting a little pre-thanksgiving masquerade! how fun right? i have always wanted to have a pretty mask, and now is my chance.

here's some of my favorite inspirations for the party.

i like ones with a little sparkle...





or ones with feathers...



possibly a laser cut style?




of course, i really just want the one nina dobrev wore on vampire diaries! it was gorgeous, and while i did find replicas on ebay, they are too expensive. *huff* it's laser cut metal w/swarovski crystals ~ super pretty!


here's a close up :)


i could have posted a bazillion more pictures because there are soo many beautiful & fun ones out there. in the end, i think i want a black, red, or blue one... lol soo i need to narrow down my thoughts! i'll post photos from the party later this week. the mister is coming too, so i am also off to find him a "manly" mask. :)

have you been to a masquerade party before?? what did you wear?

happy monday

What a fun time! I've never been to a masquerade party, but they sound like such fun. Especially when you get to wear a beautiful mask!

hola! those are fun masks, and what a fun party to go to. I was feeling weak this past spring and I found out I was anemic, which I guess is kind of common in women due to our monthly gift. Anyway, hope everything turns out ok for you!

how fun and gorgeous! i love masquerade parties. i went to an underwear masquerade party once (it was much classier than scandalous), and we made our own masks out of lace and tulle. it was so fun! do you live near san francisco? there's a costume shop on haight street called piedmont boutique with beautiful masks. i highly recommend it if you haven't been/live near there.

So sorry about your health. I, too, have been having issues and it's no fun. And tests are def scary. I know we just became bloggin' buds, but if you need to talk or anything, feel free to email :D

I hope you feel better soon!

How fun to go to a masquerade! This year has been a big year for them, yet I've never attended one :( I can't wait to see your pictures!

What beautiful masks-and a masquerade party sounds like just the thing right.

Rest and relax-we're all thinking about you, and I hope you're back on your feet in no time!
