I realized my school outfit the next day really tied in with the same colours as my outfit for the wedding!~IMG_1918
This red top looks absolutely gorgeous. What I wouldn’t give to go into Urban Behavior and buy if right off the mannequin!IMG_1535

This is a bit of a fangirl rant. You HAVE been warned! Lots of YouTube links, gif sets and Tumblr links included~

Dreamworks Animation makes the most amazing films I have ever seen in my life. How to Train Your Dragon and Rise of the Guardians are my two top favourites hands down.

I have been watching How to Train Your Dragon over and over again ever since my family bought the DVD. It’s a beautiful film.

One of fitting in, becoming who you are, forbidden friendships, and respect.

The amount of work that’s been put into this film is phenomenal. The smallest details were taken into consideration to truly make the film its own. If you look at each dragons fire, each is different and personalized to match the individual dragon. The expressions of the characters faces truly let the audience connect and fall in love with them.

I love seeing the actors behind the scenes, they match their characters so well (especially Hiccup) its’ almost scary! Here’s a clip: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RpxBMdl07sY

Here’s a short clip showing off some of the main dragons: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7VJNetohMAM

Dragons: Riders of Berk -the TV series for How To Train Your Dragon (Seeing the teens train their dragons and their friendship grow is amazing)

And I shall leave off with one of my favourite lines from the film from Hiccup:

“And now the spinning. Thanks for nothing, you useless reptile.”

THANK YOU!

And I cannot thank you enough.

May the new year of 2013 be nothing short of amazing to you!

Random Facts

1. I’m currently on the hunt for my soul mate Polaroid or to actually buy the Instagram instant camera. It’s love I tell you.

2. I plan on taking roadtrips with whoever is down to do it. I love travelling. It’s a need in my life.

In honor of Gossip Girl having aired it’s season finale, why not a post with their help as my muse?

tumblr_kq8vcdHKsq1qzvmcko1_400

 

The Cast of GG on the cover of the New York Magazine, April 2008, named as “The Best Show Ever!”

Now I haven’t watched every season, but all the buzz that goes on about it is enough to learn what the deal of it is, from the drama to the fashion. I still had enough common sense to set aside some time to sit down and watch the last episode for the hell of it.

Sometime’s it takes a show of a lifetime to see changes take place in a character, in terms of their personality, fashion and relationships with friends and family.

From the snobby uniforms in their high school years to scandalous dressy ways of the Upper East side style, it’s easy to see who’s changed in what ways. It made me think about my own transitions with my group of friends and in terms of myself.

Sometime’s appearance really is more important than we think it is. Sometime’s its not. What do you think?

I could be over-analyzing and using a really weird example for something like this, however, sometime’s it’s the hype of the media that makes us just stop and have a moment of self-realization~

Ps. I always did love seeing the way people like The Queen B dressed! It wasn’t something I could have happen in real life, but damn it was always worth watching~

So, as Gossip Girl said in the episode of “Return of the Ring“, “Good morning, Upper East Siders. How do you look today? You know image is everything. But under those perfect clothes and perfect smiles, everyone has their not-so-perfect secrets.”

Mwuaha! It’s halloweeeeeen~

Bring on the ghouls, monsters, witches anddddd pumpkins!

Actually, I could do without the scary since I’m a HUGE scaredy cat! However, in the spirit of Halloween  me and some friends got together to do some pumpkin carving!

Meet the crew!

Don’t be deceived!

It was POURING rain when we were picking out our pumpkins, GAH!

I also put together a fun quick 3 minute video of our pumpkin carving if you would like to have a look!

watch in 480p for better quality~ 

This tiny pumpkin is eating the bigger one! ONOMNOM

Meet Frankenchu; the zombie version of Pikachu!

I’m not a fan of Halloween, but I DO enjoy movies like Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas and fun Halloween songs such as: Terror Time Again, The Hex Girls, (<– From Scooby Doo movies) and This is Halloween~

Today is a windy, rainy sorta bad weather day that is the one thing all commuters like myself hate! However, today I am home for the day and I was thinking of all the things I can do today and thought I might share it with you fellow bloggers!

 

  1. SLEEP IN! (Let’s be real, we all need it!)
  2. Spend that morning till noon reading all those blogs you’ve been meaning to catch up on!
  3. Read a magazine and enjoy that simple quiet time with some music~
  4. Watch some YouTube videos to stay up-to-date with your favourite YouTuber’s!
  5. Read a couple of chapters from that book you’ve been meaning to catch up on
  6. Appreciate the fact that you are still super cozy and comfy in those pajama’s and snuggled up in bed
  7. Make yourself a hot cup of hot cocoa with whip cream or a refreshing vanilla ice cream smoothie because you deserve it
  8. Hide yourself away and dedicate some time to write in your journal or draw in your sketchbook
  9. Look through images for some inspiration and make collages if you are like me; always in need of inspiration!
  10. Waste away some hours in the middle of the day to give yourself a well-needed nap
  11. Watch some movies you’ve been telling yourself to see! (I finally saw Coraline last night!)
  12. Go through your closet and make some brand-new outfit combinations
  13. Then re-vamp your room in big or small ways!~
  14. Create that bucket list you’ve been meaning to tackle on!
  15. Keep away from the interacting with people today and take photo’s or do whatever let’s you have fun!
  16. Reflect on your life; are you doing everything you want to do?

How do you spend your lazy day? =)

xoxo Dana
