I loooove movies, but usually they are old ones. The movies from the 80's on may be chessily entertaining but there are very few of them that I believe are close to the masterpieces of the good ol' days. That being said I usually don't get too excited when new movies come out, but I am actually really excited about these two! I love Jane Eyre, and we actually own the older version of this movie (the one with Timothy Dalton) and it is my Mom's absolute favorite! She watched this trailer with me and said "Oh it looks really good, like they stayed close to the story line, if only Timothy Dalton was still in it." I think she has a little crush... Timothy Dalton or not I think it is going to be another good one! The second is more of an Indie film and I think it can go either way... Blue Valentine is about a couple struggling to keep their marriage together. I of course love Ryan Gosling so I think I may partially like this one because of him (guess I can't make fun of mom for her crush anymore). Both are coming out in the next couple of months and I can't wait to see them both...

Things are finally winding down here! My last day of class is Tuesday, and I am almost done with all of my projects! Praise the Lamb!! I have had an average of 3 to 4 hours sleep a night this past month and I am ready to get back to my good ol' 8 hours. Like I have mentioned before a lot of things are changing as this semester ends and I really can't wait to share them (they are not completely set in stone yet, but will be soon). Until then... can we get some holiday cheer on this page?! I LOVE Christmas. I know, so does everyone else... I usually don't have as much time as I would like around the holidays because of stupid school, but this year I am going to try to fit in a little more Christmas activities. To kick this holidayness off here is my Christmas List (this is basically just for fun I do not expect to get all of these things, just items I have been wanting for a while) for this year...
4. Vertigo DVD
OH! and these too...
And finally my favorite Christmas song... I know it is sooo cheesy (it may be the most ridiculous video I have ever seen) but I just LOVE it...

Sorry about no Friday FInds lately, they are just a little too time consuming for me right now. Don't worry they will be back once this busy semester is over! In the mean time, feast your eyes on this AMAZING bag! I seriously have not wanted a purse more in my life. And if it was less then $100, I would scoop it up in an instant! Seriously the cutest leather bag ever!! Check it out HERE.
Oh, and current song obsession...

So, I thought I would share my Halloween costume from this year. I was a sailor! I actually kind of threw it together once I found the hat at Target. I already had the dress and shoes, so all I really went out and bought were the hat and knee socks. Thrifty! I know!! All of my Halloween costumes usually come from what I find at thrift stores and around the house, and they never cost more then $10. Halloween stores are just such a rip off and I refuse to spend that much on a costume I will only wear once (plus they are usually way too tacky or slutty for my taste)! I never went trick or treating as a child so I find an extra amount of fun in dressing up each year. So far I have been, Snow White, a Native American Indian, a doll, and of course, a sailor! I 'll show those pictures some time (the doll was my personal favorite so far). Anyways, here's my outfit and where I got everything, enjoy!!
Ribbon: Found in my Studio
Dress: Thrift Store
Knee Socks: Target
Shoes: Steve Madden

Like I promised, here is our second Fall tradition of pumpkin picking!! Like the fair, we always go to the same place every year. Which is actually targeted at mainly younger kids, but really that just makes it all the more fun for us! They have HUGE fields of pumpkins and cute little installments (gigantic cows and pilgrim cut outs) which we take pictures with every year. It really is fun to go with my mom and sister because no matter what, each year we have a blast and come home with some really awesome pumpkins! Unfortunately my pumpkin did not make it very far this year (there was a slight constructional mishap when I tried to carve it into a ship, and there was a cave in... it looks more like a shipwreck now). But that's ok because I still had a blast anyway!

OKKKKK So, it has been forever since I last posted, I feel like I say that a lot, but that is soon going to change. Right now I am in school, working 30 hours a week at Sbucks and trying to keep up two Etsy Shops. Needless to say I am a little tired! But there are hopefully some very good new things on the horizon! And fringe benefit of these things my schedule is going to free up a little! Yay! I am going to share all that goodness as soon as I have a definite with some of those things, promise! Anyways, I have been pretty much coveting every single new thing Modcloth has come out with lately but these are my absolute favorites! To purchase any of these gorgeous dresses click HERE.

Oh my goodness, I am in love with Gregory Peck! He has got to be one of the best, most dreamy (which is always important) actors ever. He may be best known for his portrayal of Atticus Finch in To Kill a Mocking Bird, but my favorite character he ever played was Dr.Edwardes in Alfred Hitchcock's Spellbound. He was probably at his peek of dreaminess and of course did a phenomenal job playing that role as well. Now I will never let go of my love for adorable little Cary Grant, but Mr. Peck is def. trying to push him out of first place!

Oh my goodness this is bad I have not blogged in more then a week! We'll let me show you one of the things I have been working on... For Typography class I had to create a poster portraying a historically important figure in Typographic history. I choose John Baskerville because I really love his font (also called Baskerville). It is a super classic, beautiful type face, and I love it! For my poster I wanted to create images that were similar to the metal type used in old printing presses. Inside I put his name (in his own font) and and the bottom I put the name of his type face. Which is ironically the same thing (or not so ironically...), but I still like how it looks together. I actually enjoyed this project and really hope I get a good grade, fingers crossed!! Anyway, here is the final product...
P.S. How cute is the new design Anthropologie has done to their website, the bookstore is my favorite, check it out...

Oh my goodness this has to be the best Marilyn movie ever!! My mom, sister, and I loveeee this movie so much, it is def. our "girls night go to movie." Jack Lemmon and Tony Curtis, are such a perfect match up!! The main story line is, Tony and Jack are two musicians in quite a sticky situation. While playing at a "club" one night they are involved in a police raid and are forced to flee the scene. When they arrive to steal a girlfriends car to get away they witness a shooting by a famous mobster. Now they must flee the wrath of the mob. In order to do so they join an all girls musical group donning full on ladylike disguises. Only problem is, there are some gorgeous, tempting ladies in this group including the beautiful Marilyn Monroe. What are two men fleeing the mob dressed up as women supposed to do? You will just have to watch and find out!

Apologies once again, I know it has been awhile. This has just been a super tough semester and I am going to try my hardest to have a less action packed stressful one in the Spring. I am slowly but surely working on some really great things that I will eventually be able to share more about. One of those things being my vintage shop. I have come to realize that is what I love working on best and where most of my efforts will be going in the future. Anyways, on to the star of this post, Anna from Anna Amphigorously Photography. She is another young photographer who I love! I believe she is mostly self taught (my favorite kind of photographer). Her pictures are beautiful and dreamy and I could see her work in the pages of an Urban Outfitters catalogue, easy. To check out some more of her work click HERE.
P.S. If you follow me on Twitter you have already seen my profession of love for this song, but seriously is it not the greatest?!!

I loove the Ardent Sparrow! Rebecca has the most beautiful pastel jewelry in her shop. She even has tons of pieces with my favorite color combination (pastel pink and teal). This first ring below is my absolute favorite. I really want to buy everything! I could see a ton of these accessories fitting in great with my already pastel/lacy/dreamy wardrobe. I also love that she is from Canada!! Isn't it great that we can purchase handcrafted items from all over the world?! One of the many reasons I love Etsy! To visit this adorable shop click HERE.
