I've been sick with bronchitis for what feels like centuries but time goes by slowly when you're sick. Cough syrup has been my best friend these past few weeks, I bought my cough syrup a bff necklace and everything but the little shit refuses to wear it, it says "My neck is too small you weirdo" Liar.

It's safe to say I haven't been out much since I've been sick but I did visit my Dad and his new home last weekend. I was so excited to get out of the house that I wore my red lace eshakti dress for the first time and it got rave reviews. It's not hard to see why below... I love you eshakti.


 I'm feeling better mostly just trying to kick a non-stop cough and some congestion. That and I'm constantly sleepy. My husband and I leave for Vegas in two days! AND I had my hair done yesterday so exciting not talking to my cough syrup (probably... maybe) posts to come!

I've been toying with doing a movie inspiration post for this movie for the longest time because it is one of my favorite movies of all time (yes, I have many but still, this is a contender). The only thing is the movie I'm referring to, Heathers, was done in the 1980s (specifically 1988) so the hair is big, the shoulder pads are popping, and the scrunchies are ...scrunchy. I don't really care for big hair or shoulder pads, that sort of 1980's look I don't fancy much and it doesn't really translate to modern looks although a lot of the things they wore could easily be worn today - I mean tights, blazers, skirts... those things are in many a wardrobe. 

If you haven't seen Heathers... look it up, watch it! (I'm pretty certain it is on instant viewing on a few sites including netflix). Basically there is a girl named Veronica (played by Winona Ryder) who is in a popular clique of girls in school all named Heather. She doesn't care for her friends much and meets a cute boy named J.D (Christian Slater) who convinces her to "prank" some of the popular kids by murdering them. So yeah, it's dark, it's easy to relate to, it's full of quotes, and it is surprisingly funny.

I decided to stick with the primary color scheme the girls wore in the movie and here we go.


Red: Heather Chandler (played by Kim Walker)

Quote: Dear Diary: Heather told me she teaches people "real life." She said, real life sucks losers dry. You want to fuck with the eagles, you have to learn to fly. I said, so, you teach people how to spread their wings and fly? She said, yes. I said, you're beautiful. 

She's a beautiful dictator and this is how I would see her dressing today:



Movie Inspiration: Heathers - Red (Chandler)


It's a bit vampy but I can't help myself. Red and black always seems to translate to "vamp" to me but I loove red and black so *shrugs*. 

Green: Heather Duke (played by Shannen Doherty)

Quote: "I prayed for the death of Heather Chandler many times and I felt bad everytime I did it but I kept doing it anyway. Now I know you understood everything. Praise Jesus, Hallelujah"

She wants to be the leader but secretly hates the leader. 


Movie Inspiration: Heathers - Green (Duke)

Yellow: Heather McNamara (played by Lisanne Falk)

Quote: Veronica Sawyer: "If everyone jumped off a bridge, would you?"
            Heather McNamara the Cheerleader: "Probably."

The follower.

Movie Inspiration: Heathers - Yellow

Blue: Veronica Sawyer (played by Winona Ryder)


Quote: "This isn't just a spoke in my menstrual cycle" 

She has seen the reality of life within the popular clique and wants out but doesn't know how to get out.

I'm not 100% satisfied but what do you think?

I figured I'd try something new, see how it goes. 

TV Shows
1. Modern Family 
My husband and I just started watching this and it is really funny. 

2. Mad Men 
I'm sad it's almost over but excited for it to come back.


3. Peaky Blinders
Admittedly I haven't watched much of this yet but I'm liking what I've seen and that opening theme is so cool.

4. Face Off

5. The Walking Dead
 It's been a roller coaster and I've been skipping episodes because I can't handle the sadness.



Purchases
1. Eye scarves from ebay. Of course I wore this that one night and spilled meatball on it... I also got this same scarf in a yellow but it came with an odd scent? So weird right...


2. Bettie Page Heels. I hope to crikey these are comfortable or else. 



3. Black and White Dress bought off Zulily. Can't wait for this one to come!


4. Woven Bowl bought at Costco, made by http://www.allacrossafrica.org.

5. Encyclopedia of Animals (bought at McKays).

Food

Only two but it's what I'm craving constantly.


And Easter Basket Cakes by Little Debbie. I blame my husband, he bought them randomly and I got addicted. Obviously I've been having a tough time sticking to my calorie limits with two such wholesome food addictions :\

Songs

1. Slug - Trust
2. Black No 1 - Type O Negative
3. Five Seconds - Twin Shadow
4. The Tinderbox (of a heart) - Cocteau Twins

2. Lush bath bombs

5. Florence and the Machine Concert Tickets!

Last Watched Movies

1. It Follows
I'm sort of on the fence about the movie, need to see it again to make a clear decision. 

2. Wolf of Wall Street
It's a bit ridiculous how many times I've watched it in the past few weeks considering how long the movie is.

3. Tammy 
"Muscle shirts are for muscles"

4. Jinx (The Robert Durst Docu)
How nutso is that dude?

5. *The Book of Life
I haven't watched this yet despite buying it weeks ago, this is more so a reminder to watch this!

Plans
1. VEGAS!
2. San Diego!
Did you know you can only see the snow leopards at the San Diego Zoo if you buy a $100 pass (per person) so :( I probably won't get to see some snow leopards.

3. Birthday 

4. Hair? 
I want to change up my hair a bit but I'm not sure how. I like the length (although I need a trim) but I want something a little different but not too different. Any suggestions?

5. Concerts!

Since my last post was a pretty dull day, I figured I should showcase another day that is slightly less boring. With such an amazing write up like that I don't know how you would not want to continue but again, onto the show.

I wake up at 5:30am which is highly unusual for me but decide to take a bath with some lush. The comforter bubble bar to be specific. Husband leaves for work around 6ish.

I get out and have a light breakfast of toast and applesauce, take my meds, and put on my makeup.

This galaxy palette by BHcosmetics is one of my favorites, it's so pretty I am almost scared to use it. I will have to buy another one just as a back up. I wore comet and mercury.

Get dressed as a picnic table, I ADORE this dress and am really into gingham and plaid prints lately. I'm also wearing green tights from We Love Colors and almost everything else is from zulily. The one thing that irritates me is the dress is so low cut and my boobs are so ample that I have to wear a top over it. I actually called this look 'Rancid Picnic Dreams' because of the green/plaid combination.


Take a few selfies, browse the internet, apply to some jobs, cuddle with cats, and wait for Goodwill to open. My plan is to find some baskets so I can organize my spice cabinet.


Attempt to curl my hair. Clearly I'm awesome at it....



Head out to Goodwill. It is raining and they are short on baskets, I do however find a few things. None of which I set out to buy but ya know how it is.




I found some cute stuff, I adore this blazer even if it does not fit around my bust. I also found a cute anchor print skort. Yes, skort, they still make them. An old friend calls me as I'm about to check out so I quickly checkout and head home to call him back.



I catch up with my friend on the phone, have a small lunch of cheese grits, and decide to take a nap. The nap isn't working out so well so I decide to take a silly picture. Browse the internet and then finally get around to taking that nap.


Nap longer than expected  (about three hours) and husband is home and lays with me for a bit. Then we decide to order dinner, watch tv for a few hours, talk more about Vegas vacation. Then back to bed it is for the night.

I kind of spaced on the pictures after my husband came home. That was my day. Slightly more exciting I suppose, I mean I went somewhere?

Did anyone else follow the community of the same name on livejournal? I know some people say livejournal is "dead" but nothing truly dies in my mind and livejournal will always have a special place in my heart. Except maybe myspace, myspace is pretty dead to me. Anyway, I decided when I woke up to do one of these sort of type posts and I warn you... my day was pretty boring. But onto the show.

9:30 Wake up. Check email/instagram/facebook. Husband leaves for work.


 Drag my butt out of bed to eat breakfast and take medicine.


 I love these apple strawberry pouches and this apple fritter bread from Target.


My baby Halo jumps on desk to say good morning. Then proceeds to try to climb on top of printer and gets a brief scolding.


Browse the internet webz. Apply to some jobs. Tidy up a bit - vacuum, laundry, wipe counters, etc.



Groom the Halo who is clearly hating every minute of it. See all that fur? That is what keeps me cleaning constantly, it's like he shed another cat.



Mail comes! I ordered some crinolines on ebay and they are perfect! Back in the day I use to go dancing wearing crinolines and I always wanted some brightly colored ones so now I need to arrange a night of dancing. Halo was very intrigued, I had to hang these bad boys up before it was covered in kitteh.

Lunch! Strawberries. Ham and Swiss grilled cheese on apple fritter bread. Pretty tasty. A small handful of pepper jack cheez it's and two chocolate truffles.


Do some more laundry. Watch 'Chef' on netflix with Halo.




Digestive issues runneth over and force me to my comfortable bed for a nap. Hero joins.



Wake up and make dinner. Pan fried steak and salad. Husband comes home and we discuss birthday travel plans. He quickly eats and then goes to bed since he has to be up early in the morning for work.

And here I am.... exciting eh? Probably going to get to bed soon.

I literally only went outside to bring the trash cans up. So yep, exciting day is exciting. What do you think of these posts? I'll have to do another some day when I actually do more than lounge around the house with my cats. Like maybe I'll go outside or something in the next post? Don't get too crazy there, Rachel.
