I enjoyed #Halloween for the first time in my life last year. I have always wanted to dress up as Elvira, and if I ever get the chance to go to a Halloween Party, I will probably do just that. I also came across a gangster outfit for women. I absolutely loved the pinstripes and the hat. I bought just the top hat for my son that went with the voodoo magic #Costume. I got masks for both of my sons, and we dressed up for my first #booksigning at #BarnesAndNoble.
Around the same time as finding stuff to wear for my book signing, I was introduced to the app #PhotoLab by a friend on #Twitter. The pictures I could make with my face intrigued me, so I played around and had fun with it. There was something absolutely freeing for me when I changed how my face looked each time. I have often thought of those pics from last year and how much I learned about myself. I have become more self-confident in showing my face to the world, although there are days when I struggle with it.
I started making daily videos about two months ago. That way, I do not go a day without showing my face to the world. I love how that has helped me to feel more comfortable in my own skin. It is truly amazing how allowing ourselves to shine in one area helps us shine in other places. I know it sounds weird to say I am grateful for #PhotoLab, but I am. This app has helped me to see myself in a whole new light. Go check them out at https://photolab.me/
This year I committed to making a Special #Halloween #ShoutOut #Video for over 30 authors on my #youtubechannel. While preparing for the video, I came up with the idea for #31FacesOfBella. With each picture picked from #PhotoLab, I tried to make it scarier and scarier. I think some are scarier than others, and that is okay. Pics for days 24 and 25 were not part of the original #31FacesOfBella because somehow, I deleted them or lost them in my gallery. So I added in a couple I thought I would like. I saved the eerie pic for the last day, and I love how it displays across the bottom of the #Collage. My friend helped me to figure out how to make a collage from my PC.

I wanted to say thank you to all of my followers who put up with me changing my profile pic on Twitter every day in October. Enjoy the Collage!
