The Funday Post

A little girl disapproves of Tesco’s superhero alarm clock being advertised just for boys. We like superheroes too, dammit!

27 things you probably didn’t know about Clarissa Explains it All. Way cooool!

This little girl puts Gaston in his place at Disney World. So many little girls are kicking ass these days 😀

My good friend just launched her online store featuring her handmade enamel jewelry! Right now she has monogram necklaces up for sale. Check her out!

What malls in America looked like the in the ’80s! Oh, nostalgia.

Benedict Cumberbatch has officially been cast as Doctor Strange. Marvel is just giving me all kinds of reasons to live!

The ladies of Buzzfeed test out “one size fits all” products.

Take this quiz to find out what your Star Wars job would be. Apparently I’d be a smuggler, and the description is actually quite accurate!

In case you’re wondering what the description for smuggler is:

Life is… complicated, yes? So far it’s been one big scramble to find out who you are and where you’re going – let alone who will take the journey with you. People like you need a niche, a position of belonging and purpose. People like you also happen to possess an unmatched amount of charisma and wit – which becomes invaluable in a galaxy rife with unrest and gray politics. Smuggling may not be the most glamorous (or legal) of jobs, but it suits you to a T. And it pays. Boy, does it pay. Just keep your friends close, your enemies closer – and your blaster closest of all and you’ll be just fine.

Cheers,
Nina

I’m still 5…

Sometimes I don’t have enough time to put an outfit together, so this is what I ended up wearing to work this morning. Later on I realized that this is something my 5-year-old self would’ve probably worn. I can’t say Minnie Mouse has always been my favorite. Daisy Duck was my homegirl when I was a wee lass. I had a blanket with baby Daisy on it and it was one of my most favorite things in the whole wide world. But every time I went to Disneyland, Daisy was never there and there wasn’t a whole lot of merchandise with her mug on it. Everything was Minnie, Minnie, Minnie. I had a Minnie purse, fanny-pack, t-shirts, dresses, etc. No Daisy! Not even a plush doll. 🙁

*sigh*

I learned to love Minnie Mouse though, and went crazy when Forever 21 launched their Minnie Muse line last fall.

The coolest pair of Chucks I ever owned were a pair of purple ones with dinosaurs on them. I think I had those when I was in preschool. The ones pictured above would be the second pair of coolest Chucks I have ever owned. My mom got them for me last year at Nordstrom’s Half-Yearly Sale! They’re slip-ons with a pop-art/comic book feel — the shoe laces and stitches are painted on.

I found this ring at a garage sale last week. It kind of reminded me of the cheap-o rings I would get at Sanrio, or as I still like to call it “The Hello Kitty Store,” when I was little. It’s fun because I can shift all the gems whichever way I please. Also, they kinda remind me of the fireworks at Disneyland. 😀

I remember watching an episode of What Not To Wear a few years ago, and Clinton and Stacy were against wearing garments with cartoon characters on them if you were over the age of 10. While I think they have good taste, I disagree with them on that. I’m all about graphic shirts with my favorite characters on them, so long as I look age appropriate. And I think I did today.

outfit details:

  • top: Forever 21
  • pants: Levis
  • shoes: Converse
  • necklace: Tiffany’s (hybrid of my necklace + bracelet)
  • ring: garage sale
