fair fun

There's just something about the combination of horrific and cute that makes me squeal over the Cannibal FunFair series.
My bestie and I bought each other a blindbox and we could hardly wait until we got out of the store to tear them open. The blindbox marketing strategy worked so well that we rushed back in to buy another round right after we finished oohing and ahhing over our first ones.
Bearhouse, the turmoil-ridden artist with 8 children, all with different mothers, will be
perfect for my desk at work.
Another reason to love Kidrobot.

heartbroken

Lace Inset Tunic

The moment I saw this lace inset beauty at Urban Outfitters on Saturday, my heart raced. I snatched her up in my size and looked around to see if anyone else had seen me, as if she were a hidden treasure that I didn't want to share. I hurried to the dressing room to try her on, sure that she would be pure perfection and I would be walking out of the store with her in hand in a matter of minutes. That is, until I slipped her over my head and pulled her down, expecting her to stop at my waist, but she kept going. My heart sunk. She is a tunic, a length that looks terrible on me. I tried with desperation to make her work, bunching her up, pulling her down, but after 10 minutes of struggling, I walked out of the dressing room with my head down and my heart broken.
If only she were shorter or I were taller.

seams turns 1

It seems that I've missed my blogiversary by a few days (Jan 21), but who says that doesn't mean we can't still celebrate?
Happy birthday Seams of Thought!
Bring out the champagne and caviar. We're going to party like it's 1999!
Just like this cute hatted puppy.

Thanks to everyone who stops in, reads, and even leaves a comment or two.
And, thanks to all of my fellow bloggers who bring me inspiration everyday.

i die.

confession

I love this series.
Vampires, werewolves and forbidden love, it's just so damn addictive.
But, I'm not running out to buy the Edward body shimmer....yet.
Kidding. Really.

must have...bell bottoms

two thumbs up

Slumdog Millionaire gets two thumbs up from me.
A story of struggle, sorrow, and love. I really adored this film.

And, Freida Pinto was so beautiful as Latika.

dilemma

I learned about the infamous Kindle today and I didn't immediately roll my eyes at it, which is very rare for me. I'm usually the last one on the band wagon of the latest and greatest electronic devices. And, I know I'm late on this one too, but I must admit that I actually (somewhat) like it. Both for environmental reasons and because it's just cool.
Having access to so many books and resources at your fingertips is quite tempting. More importantly, think of all the trees that are saved by not buying printed books.

HOWEVER, what would life be like without stacks of books lying around or full book shelves? What would reading be like holding a cold gadget in your hands instead of worn covers and torn pages? What would Friday nights be like without a cozy bookstore to wander around? What would memories be made of without the smell of old books? What would a generation of kids be like without paperback books and kitten bookmarks?

etsy find

In my quest to find interesting dishware, I came across these spectacularly cool offerings from Urban Soule.




Made by the very talented artist, Soule, out of Seattle, WA, her pieces are so unique and add an urban flare to any place setting.

girl crush...rinko kikuchi

good flick

The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Frost

I loved this film!
The story was great and the acting superb, but my favorite part was the late 1800's fashions; suits, top hats, long coats, and chiseled faces.
