Anni & the Movie Ticket Factory

IT IS OFFICIAL.  I now have...a golden ticket! 

So, alright - it doesn't give me a one-in-a-bazillion super exclusive chance to visit a chocolate factory worked by fantastical versions of Snooki and owned by a very creepy pedo-bear-esque Johnny Depp but it does give me something I am super excited about! 

I entered one of those giveaway comps that usually pop up when Yahoo! is whoring out the latest sponsor, in the hope of finally defeating Google (that's not going to happen, even though Yahoo! is my default for hollywood gossip and local news) and I never expected in a million years to actually win anything because let's face it; I have entered hundreds of these things before.  But then...I did.  :D   So after I sent off my confirmation email, waited for a bit with no response I sort of pushed it into the back of my head until midway through lunch today, a little eco-friendly, super cute greenpac courier envelope came and there it was. 

eco friendly and attractive packaging-friendly

official confirmation & my new 'golden ticket' card

Pretty much what my new golden-ticket card does, is it gives me free access to any movie I want to see for the NEXT THREE MONTHS - December, January & February!  The best thing about this little card is that it also includes 3D free movies, which is awesome as I can usually not afford 3D on a high-school-student-who-loves-clothes-way-too-much budget.  And, to top it off - everything looks amazing so I had to take photos of it because I am a massive design geek and admire bus-stop ads. 


With puns like that - how can this not be a winning movie?

Forecast: TEM(P)T(ing)

If there's one thing I love more than Veronica Mars, Zombie life, playing dress up on a variety of girl games probably aimed at 5 year olds, I love sales.   More than that, even though I've been experimenting with pastel and nudes a lot, I will forever still adore prints and anything that has a hail!spanish-speaking-part-of-latin-america fiesta vibe. 

TEMT is never going to be a major retailer, and ok it's cheap, and like most places; you pay for what you get.  That said, even though it is cheap, the quality is fairly good, browsing the sales rack takes time but what you find if you look hard enough is usually cute, on trend with a good helping of personality that heaps of brand stores don't really offer (looking at you Cotton On, Supre).  I got these two little items on Wednesday for $15 each, and I am in love.  Yes - do I really need another highwaisted print skirt?  Probably not; but in my defence it's a different, playful kind of aztec-y print which is different and I didn't even try on this shirt before I grabbed it.  To me it's several different kinds of fashion brilliance - prints, fringing, and what I like best is that even though the fringing gives it that festival-vibe which I don't always dislike, it doesn't have that cheap-cotton feel of most clothes like that and I could just as easily pair it with a nude skirt. 

I have this little rule when I buy clothes; if I can't imagine a piece with atleast a outfit on the spot, and three others then I really, really shouldn't buy it.  This was the first thing that popped into my head; mis-matching prints, mexicali-inspired festival fever with just a little bit of biker influence.  

fringed crop singlet and print skirt are both from (paperscissors). 
the strange tentacle/spermreproduction necklace is from (equip)
that I happened to be wearing at the mall when I took this. 

That said, I sense a spring/summer wardrobe clean up coming up.  I've been free from highschool for about a week, and my room and the surrounding rooms are totally trashed with clothes and random shit.  And yes, that is pokemon heart gold. 

Yes, this are honestly genuine pics.  (I has a lot of work).   

Over to you
