Hey there, nice to meet you! I'm 26, engaged, and live in the Midwest. I love good books, bright lipstick, and spending ridiculous amounts of time on Instagram and Pinterest. Let's be friends!

Time will see us realign, diamonds reign across the sky

(Just an FYI, the lyrics in my title are from a new Deftones song 'Diamond Eyes''s amazing!)

Now for that long delayed post I promised awhile back!

Last weekend I went to a carnival with Cassie, a friend from work and had a blast! We rode the scrambler twice and the second time Cassie worked her charms on the ride operator and got us on for free :) Besides that, I ate lots of really unhealthy carnival food (funnel cake, corn dog, sno cone) but it was yummy.

So I bet you're wondering what movie I was referring to in my last post? Justin and I watched The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus and it was AWESOME! I'm not usually one for fantasy type movies, but this one blew me away. The storyline was entertaining, and the visual appearance of the movie was just breathtaking, especially the costumes. It was a little sad seeing Heath Ledger in it, knowing that he's no longer around, but he did a really excellent job in his scenes. I wish Johnny Depp had a larger role in it, but I can't have everything I want :)

By far though, my favorite person in the movie was Lily Cole. I didn't know she had gotten into acting at all, I've only seen her as a model. I was pleasantly surprised at what a good actress she is. Her costumes and makeup were some of the best I've seen in a movie, just look at this!

Definitely worth watching for fashion or makeup inspiration!


  1. I've wanted to see that movie when it came out but never got around to it. Now that you've raved about it, I think I'm definitely going to check it out. Especially if it's got awesome art-fashion in it!

  2. Yay, let me know what you think of it :)

  3. Thanks for the advice! I am going to watch it soon!
