The 20th Anniversary of Buffy the Vampire Slayer












Happy 20th Anniversary to Buffy the Vampire Slayer!!!

It was 20 years today that little Kristina, 9 years old, sat in front of the TV and fell in love with this quirky, scary, funny, empowered show. I was home every Tuesday night and my walls were soon covered in Buffy memorabilia. I've never been more a fan of anything in my entire life. 

Now that I think of it, kind of a weird show for a 9 year old, my mom definitely questioned some moments, but nothing could stop my love for the world created by Joss Whedon. To this day, the season 2 finale makes me cry, but of course, I'm a sucker for them all. I sat with my friend and a plethora of treats as the series finale unfolded. I remember the sadness of knowing it was the end. Sure there was Angel, but it wasn't the the same. 

There were certainly ups and downs, but the show stands as a wonderful, collective piece of work. Thank you to Joss Whedon for creating a show that showed an imperfect girl kicking ass on a weekly basis. Sarah Michelle Gellar posted a lovely note on Facebook about the 20th Anniversary.

Women's Equality!

Women's Equality
Yesterday I celebrated International Woman's Day by participating in A Day Without a Woman. I happened to be off that day, but I wore red in solidarity. It was organized by the incredible ladies who organized the Women's March in D.C. 

Here are a few photos from the Women's March in New York, day after the Presidential Inauguration. I paired with BUST Magazine to create some clever protest signs. I took inspiration from Leslie Gore, but was partial to the Rizzo sign BUST made. SO GOOD. It was an incredible day and I felt empowered to be part of the crowd. There's so much going on every day, it's hard to keep up. I'll leave you with a few things to keep in mind...

Resist

Stay true to yourself

Keep intersectionality important

Fight for all sisters, not just cis-ters

As I post this on the 20th anniversary of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, the sign below feels especially appropriate. What would Buffy do? Slay the patriarchy of course!

New Glasses Put a Skip in My Step!


GlassesShop.com sent me a lovely pair of pink glasses. They suit me quite well and I've grown very fond of them. They literally match my hair AND my lipstick. What's not to love? I frequently get told I remind folks of Penelope from Criminal Minds. Turns out we have similar taste in eyewear...this is literally a still from the show.
 Here I am being goofy and hanging with my friend Dakota. 

These are another great pair from the site. The sunglasses comes in a variety of colors! GlassesShop.com has tons of frames and I was excited to find retro styles. Here's a coupon code (GSHOT50) for 50% off eyeglasses and sunglasses.

Hello and Halloween

Hello Hello! I have a million half-posts in my queue, but we're moving into holiday mode. I had a splendid Halloween and I want to share the fun photos! 

Life update: While, I'm a fabulous writer/blogger extraordinaire, I'm also a fabulous Trader Joe's employee. Retail is not my end goal, but the community there is wonderful. I've learned more about working as a team than I have at any other job. Plus I've become a total TJs junkie. The food is ridiculously good. Anyhow, they're all about holidays, which I love. We got to dress up for Halloween and I chose Eleven from Stranger Things. Have you seen that show yet? It's great! It's like The Goonies meets ET with amazing music.  While I was working on Halloween, I spotted this mini me dressed in the same costume. How perfect is this photo?! 

The weekend before that, I headed to the Halloween Dog Parade, which as you can imagine, was a total dream. I dressed as Eleven in a dress from Pinup Girl Clothing and I DIYed an Eggo costume for Talullah. She was thrilled obviously. haha



I met many others in Stranger Things garb, including the couple above and Egar the Mighty, who was also dressed as Eleven. Such cuteness!

Here are a few favorites. I was in doggie heaven!


I'll have to do a proper post for this Pinup Girl dress. It's super adorable and I will definitely be wearing it post-Halloween. This is my favorite season! 

Halloween weekend, I purchased my first corset. Not sure how practical it'll be, but I'm hoping it helps my posture and such. I paired it with my Sunnydale tee and a witchy chapeau. Hope you had a wonderful Halloween. Plz post costume pictures in the comments!!! (if I still have any readers lol).
