How The Hunger Games Ruined My Night




Ok, that title is a little misleading because I ruined my own night by deciding to try and catch this movie on opening night and thinking there wouldn’t be any ridiculous lines to contend with. Yep, I’m a dumbass. I am a HUGE Hunger Games fan (read the trilogy twice), and I love Jennifer Lawrence so of course I was pumped when the new movie premiered. I made plans with my friend to go watch it Friday night, but we didn’t take into consideration the following facts:

1)      Everyone and their grandmother wanted to watch the movie at the same time.
2)      If you want a ticket, buy it online or show up early.
3)      There will be long lines no matter what time you show up. Long, long lines.

The place we went to was so busy that the parking structure was completely full so we were forced to valet park. Fine, whatever.  I was so irritated about the lines (I know, I’m unreasonable), that I decided that we should leave and go to another theater. Notice the lack of logic here. Did I think that another theater would magically not have any lines on opening night? Well, you can pretty much guess what greeted us when we got to the other theater. I was just irritated so I decided that we wouldn’t watch the movie that night so I suggested we go get dinner. Since it was pretty chilly that night, I wanted soup—clam chowder to be exact—which was perfect because I spotted a Boudin. I was so looking forward to an amazing sourdough bread bowl filled with delicious clam chowder, but it wasn’t meant to be as they were out of bread bowls. Out of bread bowls? This is Boudin, right?! I was so freaking disappointed and mad, but I contained my furry and instead ordered a Cobb Salad. Bless my friend for putting up with this clusterfuck of a night. Sometimes I am just nuts and completely unreasonable.  Despite these setbacks, we did get to see the movie Saturday morning, and I can say that it was totally worth it.

So I know that I haven’t posted in like a week. It’s not like me to not post for such a long time, and I don’t really have an excuse except that I just really didn’t feel like posting or doing my nails. As I am nearing my 2 year anniversary, I am feeling a little burned out but I know it’s just a temporary thing. It could be that there isn’t anything too exciting being released right now; a lot of the Winter and Holiday collections are out so now we have to wait for Spring Collections to start coming out before I get all excited again. In the meantime, I have still been obsessing over products and have spent way too much on stuff I don’t NEED but desperately wanted. Let me show you a few of the items I picked up recently that have definitely raised my blood pressure a little bit:

1LUSH Sexy Peel

2LUSH Lemony Flutter

4Inglot #992

5Tom Ford Black Sugar

Oh and here is a bonus picture of my nephew. Yesterday he was 2 weeks old–man how time flies! OmgIjustwanttoeathimupheissocute! Seriously. I know he’s my nephew so I guess I’m a little biased, but that little face is to die for. He is such a good baby too and likes being in his car seat.


I’ll be talking about the products I posted above in more depth when I review them later on. At this point I’m upset that I spent so much on these items and curse the day I stepped into a Lush store because I now want everything they make—but my wallet disagrees. Other than random purchases, I’ve just been laying low blogwise. I have a bunch of posts lined up…well, at least the pictures are done but I’ve been too lazy to write them up. I’ll probably get a few posts up next week since I’ll have THREE WHOLE DAYS OFF from work because of Thanksgiving. I’m going to live it up!!!

What have you been up to?

    1. Thanks, dear! <3 I just want to snuggle him right up. I think we were all over him way too much so he just wanted a rest and was pretty happy in his car seat.

  1. I have been up to the same thing…pictures but too lazy to write posts. I have no excuse other than laziness…I complain when I don’t have time and then when I have time I don’t want to do a thing. Ah well…..
    Can’t wait to see that black sugar post…it better be the most amazing thing in the world after all that talk about it.

    1. That sounds like a threat there, missy! I actually swatched it on one nail the first day and I’ve got to say I thought it was orgasmic. But that’s just my opinion and maybe I was still on a high from actually finding it. I think I’ll wear it for Thanksgiving. 🙂 I think that I’m going to battle the laziness by giving in to it. Maybe I just need a break so I can start up again refreshed in January.

  2. omg, what an adorable little munchkin <3
    I know what you mean about the Catching Fire frustration. My fiancé and I had a night like that when we went to see The Great Gatsby. We went back the next morning…morning, mind you…and it had sold out again and had impossibly long lines. I was like ARE YOU KIDDING ME lol.
    Lush is such a horrible, wonderful place. I really want to order Glogg and Twilight from the site. And Celebrate. And face masks. I can't wait to see Black Sugar! I've been fighting the urge to buy Chanel Taboo and Dior Minuit…

  3. Catching Fire was amazing! I went on Saturday afternoon and there were no lines, theater was almost empty. wtf?
    I’ve been slacking on blogging, too. I’m still getting used to my new schedule and now when I’m home my husband is home so I don’t want to do nails. Or he’s not home and I don’t feel like doing anything hehe. Then yesterday I had a BAD break and now I have nubs. Curses.

  4. Awww! the cuteness of that little one! Sorry to hear about the movie fail. But glad you got to see it while it is still new. I love the Hunger Games books and the movies are fun, with such amazing cast for most of the roles. I relish all the scenes with Donald Sutherland and Lenny Kravitz, myself. Happy for you on that Tom Ford polish. One finger swatch doesn’t do it justice. I didn’t really swoon until I ad it on all the nails and saw how it looks in different lights. I am seriously considering a back up. Ugh! That Inglot looks pretty, too. Looking forward to the posts and enjoy your family and your time off this holiday.

  5. Aaaaaah The Hunger Games! I am so excited. I’ve also read the trilogy a few times and Jennifer Lawrence is just downright amazing. I would love to be her friend. Cannot wait to be back in the UK so I can go see it! Lush’s lemony flutter is the best, I always carry a tiny pot around in my bag to rescue my poor cuticles! It really is hard to go into that shop without leaving with absolutely everything though.

    PS. Your nephew really is adorable 🙂
