Week in Review


A friend shared a picture of this house on Facebook. I need it!

Monday 25th to Sunday 31st August

Watching 

Movies

The Hunger games (movie 1) for the first time. Awesome and I loved Woody Harrelson, the costumes and the beard of that guy!

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire- Argh! So many emotions! :(  And Jeffrey Smart! (He played Basquiat)

Captain America: The First Avenger - Love Agent Peggy Carter- the kickass, empowered female character.

Vampire Academy- Mainly watched it because Dmitri is sexy and Christian looks and sounds a bit like a young Jonathan Rhys Meyer (although the way JRM doesn't age, I wouldn't be surprised if he was a vampire)

Divergent- Interesting movie, and I like the bit about choosing factions, although I find it hard to identify with someone that acrobatic when I trip over my own feet and I mean that literally. I loved all the different faction costumes.

Iron Man 3- Tony Stark is an inspiration to me, I may go into this more some other time.

TV shows

Tattoo Titans season 1 (actually started on Sunday night)

s3 and 4 of Ink Master. Began season 1. Addicted to this series!

Finished Community s3

Rewatching Community Season 5- I love Troy and Abed and wish they were my room mates!

Reading

Hemlock Grove (novel), Brian McGreevey
Midnighters: Touching Darkness, Scott Westerfeld. (great YA series)

Writing

My novel! Don't get too excited, still a long time to go!   

 Random stuff

Got the bird new sand perch covers to trim his nails. He reacted with horror and deathstares.

Recent Outfit: Mermaid Tunic

I decorated this blue tunic dress at my teacup swap and crafternoon.

I sewed on pearl beads and added some green, seaweedy wool.

I also made the hairclip myself by sewing mesh, a shell and pearl beads onto a flower hairclip.

Style Inspiration: Misty Day

I absolutely adored everything about Misty Day. I looked up some of her outfits, and surprise, surprise, she likes a lot of the same online stores as I do. Except I can't afford them, and living in a swamp, I am not sure how she does either!
