Movie Night

My husband and I probably go to the movies once a year, so when we do go I like to, y'know, look nice and stuff.  Not as fancy as when we go to the opera, mind you, but nice.  We went to see Guardians of the Galaxy, which was really fun and quite good.  I'm not sure I've ever mentioned it, but we are regular watchers of pro-wrestling, so we wanted to see Batista (Dave Bautista, who played Drax the Destroyer) do some acting.  Plus, the film is based on a Marvel comic, and my husband has several of the Guardians of the Galaxy comics in his collection.

This is mostly a beauty blog, so here are the pics of my face wearing makeup:

Eyes:  From the Too Faced Pretty Rebel Palette --
                    Instigator (antique metallic gold) all over the moving lid
                    Gangsta (shimmery chocolate brown) in the crease
                    Miss Sparkles (glittery black) in the outer corner and lower lashline
                    Dainty (matte cream) under the brow and in the inner corner

I attempted to take photos of the dress (from Target last year) I was wearing, but did a fairly poor job. I'm not sure why I didn't just get my husband to take one of me...

It has some cool patterns.

Yes, this is my bosom.  Ahem.

I wore some metallic gold wedges, which I believe are also from Target.

We had a great time, and really enjoyed the film.  It was quite funny, but it also had a poignant moment where I started crying and had to get out some Kleenex.  I would totally recommend going and seeing Guardians of the Galaxy!

Okay, my hair is a little unruly.  In the summer I put some leave-in conditioner in it and just let it do it's thing.

What's the most recent film you've seen in the theater?


  1. I love your makeup look! Gorgeous! Random thought--I have almost that exact gold heart necklace! My uncle brought it too me from Japan when he was stationed there about 20 years ago. How funny!

  2. going to cinema is one the best activities for couples and it keeps everything more exciting. the golden shadow is absolutely stunning, so bright, shimmery and u applied that perfect.

  3. Only once a year, huh? I used to go to the movies all the time but I feel like it's only a couple times per year now. The last thing I saw in the theater was a Chinese movie from 1993 ... no, it wasn't 1993 when I saw it. Anyway, you look pretty!

  4. I actually "borrowed" the tiny heart pendant from my mom years ago. It was one she had when she was younger, so it may be about the same vintage as yours!

  5. Thank you so much! I love the word "cinema" by the way.

  6. I actually love scary movies. Deliver Us From Evil sounds like the kind of movie I would like, with all the paranormal and exorcism stuff. lol

  7. The sandals are surprisingly comfortable. The movie was very entertaining!

  8. I totally read that as you saw it in 1993. lol!! The last film we saw in the theater was The Hobbit at Christmas. I want to see the next Hobbit film in the theater, so we might make it to 2 movies this year!
