Christmas Wishlist by honeysuckelle on

I'm super mature so of course I had to replace bells with balls. If you knew me (or if you do) in real life you would know I enjoy the word "balls", I say it a lot. Anywho this is my Christmas list. I also want many gift cards to Old Navy and comfy sparkly boots. With working it has been really difficult for me to get into the holiday spirit but some of these things would certainly help, all of them would definitely help so in the spirit of Christmas, give me presents :P

What do you want for Christmas? Do you feel the holiday spirit inside you? (*snicker* heehhe... I'll never grow up).

My life has been pretty eventful these past few months and not my usual, "I saw a dog today and danced to bad 80's music" sort of way although I mean I have done a little of both of those things in that time as well. 

Yep, in that picture above I apparently don't get the concept of mustaches, I blame the viking helmet. When all else fails, blame the viking helmet.

My best friend got married at the end of October and I traveled to Florida to be her brides minion. I've been in the process of getting a job for a few months and I passed a very critical evaluation a few days ago! It's a tough job though so I'll be under a microscope for the next few months (as most people are in a new position) but I'm excited for the challenge! I'm trying to adjust to a regular schedule and getting up super early (4-4:30AM wake up times are killer). 

Speaking of marriages, I also got married! Jason and I aren't the most traditional of people and we got married at the courthouse with plans for a ceremony down the line when finances are better. So yeah, like I said, things have been rather eventful! I'm trying to relax today right now with a cup of tea, cuddles with my kitties, and a long forgotten bad 90's television show on youtube. Later on I'm going to a friends birthday party, I'm excited to have an opportunity to wear some cute clothes (I bought a new tartan print skirt from F21, faux leather leggings, and a white lace dress recently)! I still can't decide what to wear yet....

I figured I should include some pictures of the bride and I at her wedding and me behaving in my usual type of way, not to mention that these are some of the first pictures of myself that someone else has taken that I've been comfortable enough to share! Our (uh, who is this "our" you're referring to you basket case) little girl *tear* is growing up (sorta, I mean I still make a lot of poop and penis jokes...). I mean I did text my little sister earlier asking her what she thought alien poop looked like, I included emojis.... I still blame the viking helmet. 

You don't own that or any viking helmet?


What to blame now?....

It has been an epic amount of time since I've done a post like this but I felt it was time and I'm presenting one of my favorite movies of all time, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. I actually went to the movie theater by myself and saw this movie when it came out, I knew nothing about it and I'm pretty sure I was nursing a broken heart at the time. This was one of the movies I skipped out of classes to see a matinee for (how can you beat those matinee prices and the lack of crowds?) I'm not much of a crier at the movies but if I was this one probably would have made me do it. Now I own the movie, the blu-ray, and the soundtrack. I also regularly search for anything related to the movie on etsy and ebay. For those of you who haven't seen it, SEE IT! But for those of you unlucky souls (just kidding but this movie is a serious masterpiece in my humble opinion) who haven't seen it, there is always time, want to come over and watch it? I have some kettle corn! Here is a brief synopsis (taken directly from imdb): A couple undergo a procedure to erase each other from their memories when their relationship turns sour, but it is only through the process of loss that they discover what they had to begin with.

I don't think I could have enough praise in the world for this movie, it is wonderfully acted, written, directed, styled... just everything about it I love. But in this post I will be focusing on the style of the main female character, Clementine Kruczynski (whose last name I always have to google) played by the amazing and beautiful Kate Winslet (have I mentioned I've wanted to be her since I was a little girl?). She plays a very free spirited character with a very bright and unique sense of style and personality. She is eclectic and complicated but very interesting.

Onto the outfits I conjured up. First with the inspiration outfit:

My take on it:

Clem Outfit 1

Inspiration outfit 2:

Last but not least, inspiration outfit 3:

My take on it (and a few other outfits sprinkled throughout the movie):

Clem Outfit 3

Clementine seems like the type of person who would heavily thrift shop, maybe perhaps even knit her own scarves and stuff, who would love vintage, etsy, small shops and boutiques. The type of person who would definitely have a flair for combining textures, patterns, and colors. How do you think I did? Have you seen the movie? Did you like the movie? What movie should I do next?

I know I've stressed this already but this is the type of movie that is best seen more than once, it is jam packed full of amazing details. Happy movie viewing!
