Musical Moods: Zero 7- Swing

Thought you’d be forever the same
When did you become so easy to change?
Can’t like who I won’t
No, that’s not true
I do know
Just can’t figure out how to pin down
There will be no unguarded kisses,
let go of my hand when they’re around
They say I’m unsound
But what do they know?
They can’t figure out how to get down
Soon enough I won’t care
stay in my arms, if you dare
You can’t romanticize
They are crazy
Will only let you down
Try to figure out how to keep you down
They’re all alone
I will keep you down

Film Club: Big Fish

A man tells his stories so many times that he becomes the stories. They live on after him, and in that way he becomes immortal.

Library Haul

Checked out too many items once again.

Real quick run down:
This Is The End - Seen it. Liked it. Wanted to see it again.
Brave - Seen it. Love it. Let's watch it again.
The Odd Life of Timothy Green - A friend told me this movie was cute. 
Paprika - a random grab because the description sounded intriguing.
Children Who Chase Lost Voices - Same as above.
Orphan Black - Kept hearing it was good. Watched the first 3 episodes so far and I'm pretty sucked in, can't wait to find out what happens. Moving at a good pace so far.
Kick Ass 2 - I have a weird Kick Ass obsession. It's a bit darker than the first one. Hoping they make a third.
The Spectacular Now - I saw the movie and loved it and thought I'd try the book as well.
House of Leaves - Internet people have raved about it, but honestly....I can't get into it.
The Husband's Secret - Copied someone on instagram who said they couldn't put it down.
My Story by Elizabeth Smart - I keep reading kidnapping memoirs.
The Cuckoo's Calling - J.K. Rowling stalker.

Colorful Living and Things

I took advantage of the 3 free promotion Zoya had recently. I had a hard time choosing colors but I really love these shades. Deep navy tones are my favorite to wear lately for some reason. 
Perhaps I am too old for fun laces, but I don't care :D They were $1 each at a Converse outlet store. I'm the most fond of the silver glittery ones. 
I've been searching for some decent moon earrings for a while. Found them at an American Eagle outlet. 
Emerald green. Not a color I'd normally choose but I'm pretty excited for this satchel. Found it super cheap online in the Nordstrom sale section (and I had a gift card!).
12 year old version of myself shining through again. 
Doodles while watching American Horror Story. 
I've been searching for simple star earrings too. 
Volume 9 of The Walking Dead. The story is getting a little weird to me but we'll see what happens!
 Laced up Converse.
Matt got us a Keurig, even though neither of us drink a ton of coffee. I think I'll be using it more for tea and cider.
Another gift card purchase, they were cheap at the Nike outlet. I guess I have a thing for purple and turquoise together. I might add the pink laces to make them more obnoxious. Guess I have to work out more now.

Oops, this was a bit of a "haul" post. Don't mind me.

Weekend Wandering: Antiques and Art Store

We came across this random antique mall this past weekend. So many weird treasures and pieces of nostalgia, I think we spent a couple hours just wandering around. I haven't felt too creative lately, and have been thinking of getting back into drawing so we also stopped by my favorite art store. I didn't buy anything this time, but I might go back for a new sketch book soon.

Collector - Peter Pan

Added a new book to my collection of children's books. I was recently reading about why Peter Pan is actually a creepy story. I'll try not to think about that though.
