The Mortal Instruments movie day!

This was from the first day that the Mortal Instruments movie came out. I haven't got to post these yet on my blog. I tried to go for Shadowhunter fighting gear for those who have read the books. The movie was good, one of the better young adult book adaptations I've seen in awhile. If you get a chance read the book and then see the movie.

Thoughts on Cosmo at Midnight

Okay so it's twelve o'clock at night and I'm sitting here reading Cosmo on my ipad and I can't believe some of the stuff that I read in this. Like most of us women who read the magazine, I read Cosmo, mostly for the sexy parts. But ladies, Cosmo is not always right.
The thing I see a lot in Cosmo is that they suggest women infer that to men we want to do something in bed or want things a certain way assuming that he'll just magically get it. Guy's are not mind readers as much as I sometimes would like them to be. If you want him to go down on you don't mindlessly talk about how he did it one time and you liked it and then move on to the next topic and hope he'll get the hint. If you want him to go down on you, you need to tell him in plain English. Now, don't get me wrong I'm not saying men are stupid and we have to spell everything out for them to get it. However, we tend to beat around the bush about things instead of saying exactly what we want. Yes, you could say that maybe it's cause you don't know what you want, but if that is the case don't get mad at your man if he doesn't know what you want either.

The Mortal Instruments

Sorry, I haven't posted in awhile. It's been a crazy couple of months. I lost my job, got another job and I'm currently working graves, so most of my life is devoted to sleep and work. Anyway, lately when I haven't been sleeping, I have been reading The Mortal Instruments. I have been intrigued by the book for a long time and when I saw that the movie was coming out in August I had to read it. First of all, it is amazing! I'm currently on the fourth book and haven't been able to put them down. I started the first one less then a month ago and fell in love. 

Recently, Hot Topic got a clothing line for the new Mortal Instruments movie that is coming out. I was so excited I had to go to Hot Topic as soon as it came out so I could try some of them on and buy some. Of course I haven't got the chance yet to take photos of me in it but in case you haven't seen the photos of the line yet I figured I'd post them. 

 The black top with the Angelic Power Rune is the one I got. I love it. It's super cute.

All photos were found on and Screen Gems and do not belong to me.

Mona Leia and Striped Pants

Daniel and I went to Disneyland the other day. It was our last day at Disneyland before our season pass expired. I had a wonderful day sporting my Princess Leia/Mona Lisa shirt and my striped pants, pretty much my two favorite pieces of clothing right now. Sadly this was the last time I got to wear my favorite hat. Daniel borrowed it while he was house sitting and one of the dogs he was watching decided to use my wonderful hat as a play toy. However, he did tell me he saw another one on ebay and will replace it. It is pretty much the only hat I wear.

These past couple of days I've been trying to figure out the whole couponing thing. I was actually able to get about $100 worth of products for about $30. I was so proud of myself.

Also have a couple of new items on etsy. Check them out. Some new earrings, bracelet and necklace. I shall post photos up for the next post.

     I don't have HBO anymore so I was lucky enough to check season two of Girl on the free preview weekend on Verizon Fios. I've been completely in love with this series like everyone else since the first season last year, but this season sealed the deal. I love the realism of the stories and all of the character are amazing. Of course, I can relate to Hannah's character the most because she is a writer and complete crazy and eccentric most of the times. Which I have to admit I can be, but we wont go there. I also feel like I'm right there in the same place as Hannah. I remember this line from the first season,
“You could not pay me enough to be 24 again,” says Hannah’s OB/GYN. “Well, they’re not paying me at all” [Hannah] shoots back, feet in stirrups, gazing at the ceiling. (HBO Girls Season 1)
Being twenty - four that is exactly how I feel. I can relate to these characters because they are really gasping for air in this society. In your early twenties you don't know what to do with yourself. Your trying to figure out who you are and what you want to do with your life. When your twenty-four your are no longer really college age (unless you are going for a graduate degree) and so you've now been pushed into this world expecting to start a life. Instead everything seems uncertain.

    Anyway, I figured we'd talk about the fashion on the show cause besides the witty dialogue and amazing directing the fashion is unique, down to earth and unlike most shows.What I love about the fashion in show is it's not like most of the shows around. The fashion is really true to the character and the characters don't just wear an outfit because it's 'in,' or because the writers are trying to make the show popular for the fashion clothes the characters wear.You wont find Sex in the City fashion here.

Hannah -
Hannah's character as well as the writer and actress Lena has tattoos and shows them often, which you don't usually see in movies or television, especially with women, as if every person in the world has flawless, unmarked skin. Hannah's clothes are very hipsterish. She wears bright colors or patterns most of the time.

Jessa - 
She's possibly one of my favorite characters besides Hannah. She is the wild child out of all the girls. Jessa's style picks up where Hannah's leaves off.  Her style is quirky and very free spirited. She wears cute hats and most of her outfits are in the natural hippie tones.

Marnie -
Her style is very business like. Her character tries to always seems like she has it all together. She's very much a control freak and her neat and clean style tends to show it. When you see her losing control in the second season her style reflects that as well with jeans and lose t shirts.

Shoshana -
Shoshana is such a spaz. She also probably has the most girly wardrobe out of everyone. She tends to go with the trends and sometimes refers to the Sex and the City.

        Sorry, it took me so long to post these photos. I was lucky I even got the photos I did. My wonderful CF drive for my camera decided to stop working that day and then I had the worst time trying to get my hundreds of photos off the drive. Then it took me awhile to edit the photos as well. I'm still not done with all of them but figured I'd post what I have so far. 
       Anyway, Daniel and I had a wonderful time. I loved wearing my Alice in Wonderland dress again. I got a corset there which is amazing and I'm looking forward to getting a lot of use out of it. I also, got a signed copy of Cassandra Clare's book Clockwork Prince and since I'm currently reading the Mortal Instrument Series I was really excited to snatch the book up for an awesome deal. Daniel got a pocket watch which he's been looking for. I'm hoping to get into the vendors next year so I'm crossing my fingers. I think it would be a great way to get my business out there. 
        It's been slow lately on etsy. It usually doesn't pick up till September but I could use the extra money. I got a lot of ideas from the convention so I'm looking forward to bringing some of that inspiration to the shop soon. I also need to get ready for believe it or not but the Christmas rush. I couldn't believe how busy it was last season and my ornaments went like crazy so I got to stock up on supplies and get to making stuff. 
       Back to the Gaslight Gathering. I love all the costumes I see there. Daniel and I only get to go one day out of the three day weekend but it's always so much fun. There were a lot of Star Wars Steampunk and we know how much I love Star Wars. Also, there was the Steampunk Disney Princesses. Well check out the photos from the convention.
