summer break

The Olympics!!! BIG fan over here and since I work from home, I am streaming it all day long.

So basically I am taking a break from blogging and Grey’s Anatomy binging on Netflix… you know, the important stuff.

I am not the only one who thinks breaks are a good idea:Screen Shot 2016-08-05 at 8.58.53 AMLet me know if you have blog ideas for when I return

psst. I’ll still write my weekly Friday meanwhile, elsewhere posts

psst. It’s August and summer is half over (boo) the good news for me is that I’ve done +50 of my 100 days of summer bucket list!

Are you guys watching Stranger Things on Netflix? So good! Honestly, if Winona Ryder wasn’t attached to the show, I probably would of ignored it on my feed but like Kyle Chandler, there are certain actors that get my attention.MV5BMjEzMDAxOTUyMV5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwNzAxMzYzOTE@._V1_

We ploughed through the season in one week – there’s only eight episodes – don’t judge. The show is set in the early 80’s and it reminds me of The Goonies / Stand By Me / E.T. – a lot of Stephen King / Steven Spielberg and even a little John Hughes. Just watch it.

When I was eleven or so, I remember going to a sleepover party at Elyisha’s house and we watched Pet Sematary – it scared me to death and now I want to go back and watch all of the Stranger Things-like movies plus, maybe start a petition to add more Winona to Netflix.


Winona Bests (according to me):

Reality Bites (1994): I was about 15 when this came out and Ethan Hawke was my everything. If you haven’t seen this movie, it’s a must. This is all we need, a couple of smokes, a cup of coffee and a little bit of conversation…

Beetlejuice (1988): We didn’t have cable growing up but we did have a VCR and my mom’s friend gave us a collection of movies. On one tape was Beetlejuice / La Bamba / Indiana Jones and The Temple of Doom, and we watched them over and over. Now, looking back, it’s kind of messed up that my childhood included a crazy ghost that haunts the living, shrunken heads, a plane crash that killed a dreamy and talented singer and a hot archaeologist eating monkey brains… oh Donna.

Little Women (1994): Why did she not choose Laurie? Besides that one devastating detail, I love this movie. Also starring Claire Danes, Kirsten Dunst, Susan Sarandon, Samantha Mathis, Eric Stoltz and Christian Bale – it oozed 90’s coolness but in an Anne of Green Gables kind of way.

Edward Scissorhands (1990): Winona and Johnny Depp – he makes her snow with his scissor hands – need I say more?

Heathers (1988): The full movie is on YouTube… (FYI). Christian Slater as a psychopath killer boyfriend and Shannon Doherty as a mega brat – how can you not watch this right now?

And finally, Mermaids (1990): Marshmallow and maraschino cherry kabobs! This movie is charming and fabulous and also starts CHER and a tiny Christina Ricci – Remember this song? You are so so welcome!

Let me know what your favourite Winona moments are… and no, I did not include Girl, Interrupted because my dislike of the Jolie trumps my love of Winona.

Oh. And watch Stranger Things so we can discuss!

I am jumping on the bandwagon and doing up my own orange-inspired inspiration board. A lot of people don’t love orange but I have no problem with the colour. What about you? Is orange your new black or do you only wear it on October 31st?
