Day 21: Dick Tracy Who remembers the movie from the 90’s starring Warren Beatty, Al Pacino, Dustin Hoffman & Madonna? I think it’s time to bring Tracy back and I am volunteering as tribute!

Thrift Store Cosplay Day 20

Day 20: Romeo from Romeo + Juliet Ok, let’s talk about Romeo + Juliet! When I was in middle school, the Baz Luhrmann version of Shakespeare’s most classic love story came out in theaters and I was instantly in love! And we’re talking pre-Titanic Leo love, which is an entirely different kind of love. OneContinue reading “Thrift Store Cosplay Day 20”

Thrift Store Cosplay Day 13

Day 13: Luigi from Super Mario Brothers This one ended up being more of an homage than I originally intended. The first piece of my Luigi cosplay I found was the green overalls. I got excited cause I thought to myself “Look, green overalls…just like Luigi wears!” In my defense I haven’t owned a NintendoContinue reading “Thrift Store Cosplay Day 13”

Mawage

I’ll admit…when I was younger, I dreamed often and deeply of my one perfect, future wedding day. A day surrounded by friends and families and pretty colors. A day I’d have lost all the unwanted weight for. A day I’d driven all my bridesmaids crazy to get to. A day where my groom might reconsider theContinue reading “Mawage”

On the Subject of…

High School. Recently I have been binge watching  the, sadly, short-lived Carrie Diaries (only 2 seasons…sad face.) And like all the teen dramas I’ve enjoyed in my life (Dawson’s Creek, The OC, One Tree Hill, etc) watching it makes me feel like maybe I missed something. I never had a first kiss in high schoolContinue reading “On the Subject of…”

Unrealistic Friendspecations

As a single, 30-something who was living in New York until a short time ago, I relate to the beloved TV show, Friends, on so many levels. Too many to count. There is no show that means so much to me and has influenced my life the way Friends has (with Seinfeld coming in atContinue reading “Unrealistic Friendspecations”

Battle of the Darcy’s

As Valentine’s Day approaches, I wanted to take a look at one of the most romantic figures in all of literature…Mr. Darcy himself. I’m hard pressed to find anyone that matches up to this paragon of moral fiber. So instead of pitting people against him. I’ll pit him against himself and share some of my favoriteContinue reading “Battle of the Darcy’s”

The Only Girl in the World

When I was growing up…there was only one girl in the whole world that I wanted to be. I didn’t have a lot of choices. Leading ladies in the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s were few and far between to say the least. One girl in Star Wars (Princess Leia.) One girl in Superman (Lois Lane.)Continue reading “The Only Girl in the World”

39 Times Rom Coms Pissed Me Off

You know what really burns my butt? Romantic Comedies!! Because here I am over here…liberated female, free from the ties that bind me and then a movie like When Harry Met Sally comes on and all that level-headed nonsense goes right out the window because…reasons! It just burns. It stings actually. And the worst partContinue reading “39 Times Rom Coms Pissed Me Off”

30 Day of Nerdy Hair – Day 20

Day 20 – Claire from Jurassic World By now we all know the awesome power of the mighty dinosaur. No one expected Jurassic World to sweep the box office the way it has. It even managed to kick the Avenger’s collective asses too. That’s quite the feat. It makes sense that something tied to soContinue reading “30 Day of Nerdy Hair – Day 20”
