Halloween Highlights

Well Halloween is already tomorrow which is weird and crazy and it feels like it came so fast. I've been making myself get into the good old spooky halloween spirit. I've worked so hard at eating candy and watching movies and looking at cool pictures of me in old halloween costumes, it was really tiring I do so much. Look I even made you a collage to show my spirit.

But seriously I did come across some cool old photos of kids in their halloween costumes, their almost as cool as all the girls I saw last night wearing bras and underwear pretending to be dressed up. They all looked so cute and creative, one of them even put flowers on her underwear and bra and flashed the peace sign for some group pictures, I literally felt like I was in the 60's.
Ok back to real costumes:


If your going to San Francisco...

I've been wanting to make some flower crowns for a while now, and yesterday after finishing my daisy chains, I decided to go out and get some supplies. Coincidentally I went on rookie mag today (aka one of my favorite things that I also hate because I feel like their in my head) and they had posted a diy on flower crowns, very strange indeed. But it couldn't have been better timing, I'm even more motivated to make them now.
Oh and I also received my Alexa Chung zine today (yay!) as you can see in the picture above (kinda). Wait, did I just say yay? Anyway, I'm excited to get started on my crowns and I will be taking pictures as I go, so there will be a full post on them coming soon. I hope you had a good monday everyone.

And while your waiting, here are some pictures that have been giving me inspiration:

She was the still point of the turning world

Some things I like to look at.


Life Is Life

This may be extremely late, but I saw this music video for Noah And The Whale's song, Life is Life, a while back and I've been meaning to share it since.
There's so many things to love about this video, especially the fact that it looks exactly like (and may just be) the town I've grown up/live in. Not to mention the colors; red, white, and blue, are some of my favorite colors together, which is odd considering how unpatriotic I am. But it's a different type of red white and blue from the bald eagle, american flag, hot dog loving type. No, this combination is much different, the video is minimal and beautiful and full of teenage/suburban angst.

Also it's hard not to love a peter pan collar blouse and red skirt paired with knee highs and oxfords. I've also always been slightly jealous of cheerleaders for the adorable outfits they get to wear, but the school spirit and coordination thing ruined that dream for me.
Anyway enough rambling, watch it and enjoy.

Couldn't you forget about being a cool teenager just for one night?

Well halloween is just around the corner and I've been feeling the spooky, candy-filled, witch crafty halloween spirit a lot lately. Look I even made you a collage to show my spirit. I can be cool too.
But, other than candy and collages, halloween movies might be my favorite part of this holiday. I'm a baby so most of the ones I watch aren't gory horror movies filled with axes and screaming girls, but they are filled with witches and cute clothes which is fun too right?
Right, so here are some of my favorites:

The Craft

Hocus Pocus

If you didn't have a crush on Max as a kid then there was something very wrong with you.


Memory Break

I'm currently cramming for a test tomorrow on a book I haven't read yet. I ignored it for weeks, so as always I've barely gotten anything done and keep getting distracted (clearly), but one of my distractions was too cool to not post about. I was going through my brothers old movies from when we were little and I found an awesome movie that me and my two brothers made one night that I have no recollection of but it's awesome.

Let's start with talking about how awesome I was, I think I was like 5 here which means it was either 1999 or 2000, either way I look like a bad ass, wearing an awesome flowery barbie shirt over a long sleeved floral shirt. I wish I still had that oufit, maybe I would still look this cool splashing water on my face if I did.

That computer was the best, so is that desktop.

The movie got pretty intense when colin was found dead for some reason.

But it's ok because someone else comes back to take his place as a detective and we get to catch a glimpse of his room at the time, too cool for words.

This has to be my favorite scene though, when we randomly end up in an elevator/my shower. I got yelled at a few times for looking at the camera.

Anyway you probably won't think this is as cool as I do, but at least I got distracted from my homework for a little while.
