My Top Disney Princess Looks

So I saw the new Aladdin and liked it far more than I thought I would from the previews to be honest. It wasn’t great but having never seen the original I can’t compare it to anything. The new film did shoot Jasmine up into my top three Disney Princesses.

And not just because she’s so stylish although that did play a big part.

It also got me thinking about what the best Disney Princess (official and unofficial) looks actually are…

Maybe the Books are in a Slump?

I’ve been thinking about a March wrap-up and my recent reads worried I was in a book slump. Though I’m still reading a ton and I still want to read everything… but the last couple of weeks there hasn’t been anything that’s really blown-me away.

It could be me.

But I’m starting to believe it’s the books that are in a slump and not the reader.

Alice in Wonderland (1951)

My March Blind Spot Series Pick was Alice in Wonderland. It’s of course the famous tale of the girl who falls down a rabbit hole and into Wonderland. Much as I love the story (and wonder who goes around sticking their heads down holes?) I’ve never seen this version.

Things Not Conducive to Blogging

Probably the main thing not conducive to blogging or keeping up right now is abdominal  surgery and a stomach full of stitches. I told myself I wasn’t going to bother with posting or even scheduling posts but I had really been hoping to keep up with reading and commenting and that just didn’t happen.

The Little Mermaid

My Blind Spot pick for February was an easy one as I have never seen the Little Mermaid and it became available on iTunes right around my birthday it was a little treat to myself.

Luckily it was not a wasted gift!

Zodiac Sign Recommendations: Aquarius

zodiac sign book recommendations

Well the Aquarius sign holds a special place in my heart. It’s traits include: true bohemian, logic combined with creativeness, a concern for the underdog and human rights. They are also gifted communicators, team players and full of great humor. But full of contradictions (like most people.) So I tried to pick the recommendations that most played into those.

I do like that one of the “issues” is flashes of unexpected rage. Um, yeah. I got that…

For a daily or monthly chart check out the Elle Daily Horoscopes.

Nancy Drew, Oscars Noms & Funko Fail

Did I completely miss we’re getting a Nancy Drew adaptation this year? I admit I’m possibly more excited about Sophie Lillis (IT) playing Nancy because that just seems like great casting.

Resolutions Unhaul 2019!

letting it go

I love making lists. Resolutions. Bucket lists. 10, 20, 30 things to do before (insert age.) Going through my endless old journals the other day I found a frightening amount of these. And I thought- it’s time to let some of these go. They just aren’t going to happen and maybe I can focus more on the things that will.

So below the long-term resolutions I love that I’m letting go of…

Happy New Years!

Happy New Years! 2019

I’ve never really been big on New Years. I’m going to see Aquaman again (yeah!) probably watch a movie tonight or keep watching Derry Girls (that show is hysterical!) I’ll save the Taylor Swift Reputation Tour show for tomorrow cause you got to start the New Year right 🙂

Then it’s time for 2019!

I hope everyone has a wonderful fun night & best wishes for the year ahead!

Merry Christmas!

holidays in the desert

Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house the only creature stirring was the Bookworm and the dogs who waited until now to want out…

The stockings hung, the bookshelves dusted, she doesn’t really know this story and is wondering whether Krampus or Bird Box is a good Christmas Eve movie. Also she might need to look up what sugar plums actually are so let’s just say tucked into bed visions of Aquaman will likely dance in her head!

But the whole point is Merry Christmas to all who celebrate! And to everyone I wish you and yours the best 🙂
