It’s winter and pretty chilly, so I paired it with black opaque tights and my black bow flats.

Not So Scary

It’s Halloween!!!

Today is Halloween. It is also called Allhalloween, All Hallows’ Eve, or All Saints’ Eve. Halloween is a yearly celebration observed in a number of countries on October 31st. This day is the eve of the Western Christian feast of All Hallows’ Day, a period of time dedicated to remembering the dead, including saints (hallows), martyrs, and all the faithful departed believers. According to many scholars, All Hallows’ Eve is a Christian feast initially influenced by Celtic harvest festivals. Typical festive Halloween activities include trick-or-treating, attending costume parties, decorating or carving pumpkins into jack-o’-lanterns, lighting bonfires, apple bobbing, visiting haunted house attractions, playing pranks, telling scary stories, and watching horror films. Tonight I went trick-or-treating, of course!

This year, I thought I’d move away from last year’s scary costume to one that is fun and quirky.  At my dance studio, we were allowed to dress in our costumes for class all week.  A couple of girls forgot to wear theirs, so we got clothes from the lost and found box (it’s pretty big) and made them crazy costumes…. And for some strange reason, everybody kept asking me for gum. LOL! My costume is a Gumball Machine. They were all desperate for a treat from me. A couple of girls even wanted to open my costume up and get the gum.  Ha Ha.  They are really foam balls.  My mom bought my costume from Chasing Fireflies.  Check out my pictures below and look, I even dressed up Ziggy.  He’s Count Zigula!

OOTD/Pink Out Day/My Birthday/Tutu Tuesday

Hey Everybody,

It’s me, Ainsley. Today was a busy day, but it was a really fun day too.  First of all, it’s my birthday. I’m officially twelve years old. I celebrated my birthday earlier in the week with my family, but today I got lots of birthday wishes from my friends at school.  The girls at my lunch table sang happy birthday to me and I brought a red velvet cake bundtlet with cream cheese icing from Nothing Bundt Cakes to share with everybody.

It was also Pink Out Day at school today.  Everybody was supposed to wear pink in honor of October being Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  Breast cancer is a terrible disease and a form of cancer that affects women the most.   According to the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF), 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime.  The National Breast Cancer Foundation was founded in 1991 by breast cancer survivor, Janelle Hail.  She was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1980 at the age of 34.  At the time of her diagnosis, there was little information about the disease, and she was forced to make a decision about her health with few options.  After her treatment, Janelle made a commitment to help women around the world by educating them about breast cancer and the importance of early detection.  NBCF’s mission is to help women by providing help and inspiring hope to those affected by breast cancer through early detection, education and support services.  There is currently no known cure for breast cancer, and its early diagnosis is critical to survival.  That’s why NBCF works with hospitals to provide free mammograms to women in all 50 states.

Well, a big group of us girls (and some boys too) wore pink tutus to school to honor breast cancer.  We all looked super cute.  So, my Outfit of the Day (OOTD) today is a pink turtleneck underneath a charcoal colored birthday shirt (This is my birthday shirt) and a pink tutu.  The pink tutu was pretty short so I layered it over a longer black tutu.  I also wore black legging and sparkly black combat boots.  Oh yeah, check out the pink ribbon in my hair too.  My mom braided it into my braids.  Finally, my outfit qualifies me for Tutu Tuesday! Take a look at what I wore below…….
