FFF #5: Scared Stiff

This is my all time favorite movie. I can't really explain why... It's been my favorite movie since I was 6.
I only watch it once a year, on or around my Birthday.

You've got Jerry Lewis, Dean Martin and Carmen Miranda. Three of my all time favorite people.

You'd think I'd have more to say since this is my favorite movie and has been for 14 years.. Oh well, you'll just have to watch it and see! That's what I'm about to do!

I've discovered a recurring theme in a lot of my favorite movies... Men in drag.. What does this say about me?

P.S. The movie is even better if you eat candy corn while you watch it. Trust me.

Happy Birthday..

Mary Blair!
Ha! It's not only my birthday today, but the imaginative and wonderful Mary Blair's. She would have been celebrating her 100th birthday today.
She was truly one of a kind...

Mary & Walt

Hope everyone has very Merry Birthdays and Un-Birthdays all around!

Things That Make Me Happy (Right Now) Vol. 2

It's been quite a while since I did a post like this. I thought it would be kind of neat to look back and see what I was obsessed with on my last day of teendom (and I promise I'll shut up about it after this!)

1. The show "Boys Before Flowers". I'm only on episode 8, but I have become completely addicted. I'm hoping I get some birthday money so I can buy the whole series on DVD.

2. This print from Janet Hill Studio. I actually really love all of her paintings. I wish my walls could be covered in them. Or better, that I could just live in them.

3.  A Charlie Brown Christmas Soundtrack

4. Weetzie Bat & Witch Baby by Francesca Lia Block. They have been inducted into my favorite books. I read them for the first time not even a month ago and I already want to read them again. That's basically how I feel about Boys Before Flowers, too.

5.  This skirt and those shoes from Anthro. I'm hoping to snag the skirt when I go on Monday! I just can't decide if I should get that color or the grey...

6.  This sequin covered pumpkin

7.  Crinoline Petticoats. I'm on the hunt for a red one.

Happy Thursday!

Hair Be Gone!

I cut my hair!
After and Before! I've been watching a bunch of Korean TV and I dug out a bunch of my J-Rock + J-Pop... That's why I'm doing that with my hand. I'm a nerd.

YAYAYAY!!! I will no longer have my life dictated to me by my hair! If I wanna wear it down, I don't have to worry about the dreadlocks that will soon be in my future!
Ok.. I'm still a little excited about it. ;)
Well, I'll let you get back to your other interwebs activities!

County Fair

I hadn't been to the Fair since I was... 11? A very long time. I went with some family + friends and it was so much fun!
Fun! Get it?
 We got lemonade from a lemon shaped building
Amanda purchasing the lemonade from the nice lady in the lemon building

We saw goats sitting on top of chickens
A rabbit hissed at me
The Bunny mid hiss

I rode a Ferris Wheel for the the first time!
I instagramed this from the top! It's blurry because the thing never stopped! Just kept going around and around and around...

I love all the lights on the rides. I said that night, "Life should look like this all the time."  It's so very pretty.
Amanda and I. Being cute.
I'm contemplating my $5 Cotton Candy

I'm not even close to finished with all the pictures I snapped that night, but if I waited too long, I'd probably forget to even do a post about it!
I've been having a very nice last week of teendom. This birthday is wigging me out more than turning 10 did! I usually say age is just a number, but it's very different when the number is yours!
Well, I've got some pins to make and an Etsy store to update.
How cute are the baby chicks?

THIS Is The Big Announcement!

Remember I said I had an announcement to make?
Here it is: I've opened an Etsy store!

I'm so excited! I've been working out kinks and such for the past month or so and I'm relieved/ecstatic to finally have everything live! I'm selling hair clips made out of vintage Christmas decorations. Some of them are really super Christmas-sy and others are just really shiny :) I'm still gathering materials and making new things... There's going to be a bunch of stuff in the store soon, I just really wanted to go ahead and open the doors!
 You can also check out the Facebook Page

So, what do you think? Are any of you Etsy people? Any suggestions?

If you meet anyone looking for some kitschy, shiny accessories, send 'em my way!
Have a great evening,

Christmas Waltz

Christmas is still another 75 days and 12 hours away, but it's never too soon to start planning!
She & Him is releasing their first Christmas CD on the 24th (I'm super excited. It's going to be my birthday present to myself.) and they just released a sneak preview/first listen of one of the songs on the album!

Happy Monday!

P.S. If you read my FFF #4 post, this isn't the big announcement I talked about... It's still not quite ready...

FFF #4: The Fall

What?! Two FFF posts in a row? What is the world coming to?!?!

I didn't have a lot of time this week to take screen grabs and such, so this will be a rather short post. (I say that now, but we'll see by the time I'm done with it.)

Since Fall has officially arrived down here in the South, what better movie to feature next then "The Fall"! Get it? "Fall" as in the season... Ok.. You've got it.
 This is a very beautiful movie. Seriously. Tarsem Singh is a great director. I just found out/realized that he's directing the new Snow White movie. Now I'm actually excited about seeing it!
I initially only watched this movie because Lee Pace is in it, which is a perfectly fine reason to watch a movie, but it was so much better than I expected. This is sort of a hard movie to describe... It's one of those story-within-a-story types... Basically, Lee Pace + Pretty Cinematography + Cute Little Girl + Awesome Fight Scenes + (Spoilers) = BEAUTIFUL MOVIE!

Well, I've got things to do. Hopefully I can share some of this stuff by the first of next week... I've got some pretty exciting news... Well... I think it's exciting. I just don't want to jinx anything, so hopefully everything will be ready by next week so I can share!
Happy Friday!

Happy October!!

I can't believe it's already here! Where has the year gone? It seems like it's going to be Summer already and then, poof! There goes September and then you've got 3 holidays back to back! I'm really excited about it. Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas... They'll be here before we know it! I'm also terribly excited because in 19 days I will no longer be 19. I've been preparing myself all year by saying, "I'm almost 20." Instead of, "I'm 19." I might've sounded a bit immature to some people when I said that in January... But I tend to have a hard time remembering my age anyways (Sometime I'll tell you about the PG-13 debacle at Blockbuster) and this is going to be such a transition... I'm having a... Quarter life crisis? Is that right?
Well, I've got some stuff I need to do (I need to do all the teenage-ry things I can in the next 19 days!) so I'll leave you with some pretty Fall-ish pictures from Weheartit.

Have a good night!
