Current reading for May and new shoes!

Currently reading: The Woman in Cabin 10 by Rut Ware and Welcome to Lagos by Chibundu Onuzo. They are both very different and very neat books. I just finished Welcome to Lagos. It is fantastic with lots of colorful images and even better characters. I fell in love with the main people in the book and really enjoyed the friendship they all forged while they were on the run from different things in their lives. The ending was sad but kind of bittersweet because you get to see what the characters are up to as well. I felt transported to Nigeria. I definitely recommend this book. I am almost finished with The Woman in Cabin 10. A creepy fun thriller set on a boat with loads of twists and turns. 
I was at a thrift shop and found these amazing spike stud shoes for only 5 dollars. Such a great find! How has your week been? I hope it is fantastic and you have an even better weekend.

American Fair by Pamela Littky

I have always been fascinated by carnivals and fairs. Pamela Littky documents them with beautiful photographs. I really enjoyed the photography and how she captured the different people who attend fairs across many of our U.S. states as well as the workers who work hard to put the fairs together.

Frankenstein and Bride of Frankenstein

This past weekend I attended the Frankestein film festival at Stanford movie theater in Palo Alto California. If you get a chance to check out that old theater you should. We stayed at the historic Cardinal hotel which was old Spanish style 1920's and had really cool old elevators.

Goth outfit inspiration: Nancy in The Craft

 One of the most important movies in high school for me was The Craft with Fairuza Balk. Nancy was loved by many. She embodied the rebellion in many of us and we kind of rooted for her in that film despite her mean and crazy ways and she was fun to watch.  The girls in that film were brave, fierce and fashion forward. If there was anything that film taught us it was good triumphs over evil and we need not overuse power and to be thankful for the natural gifts we have. Many years later we still find the influence of that 90s film in many of our clothing items that we style, our makeup, our attitudes. Gotta admit when the going gets rough some of us have a little snarky, tough Nancy in us that we gravitate towards to fight on.
