It seems that I’ve drunk a potion and grown a bit since yesterday! Down this rabbit hole, everything is just a little wacky, whimsical, and not quite what it’s supposed to be!
You see, I’m thirty-one today! Hard to believe! When I was younger, I watched those thirty-something sitcom parents and thought being in your thirties meant the end of fun, and you were expected to wear a pressed suit and follow every rule to a tee. Honestly, THOSE thirties sound like a drag. I went a different way!
Instead here in my 31st year, I decided to bake an upside-down unbirthday cake and lick the spatulas, dance around the living room being judged by my cat, and taking a nap (pandemic lockdown or not, this is what I WANT to be doing)!
Perhaps this doesn’t look like thirty-one for most. But creating silly things, wearing bright dresses and pink and purple wigs, and jumping around my condo to some happy fun pop music IS thirty-one for me!
There are no rules for age so don’t be afraid to get older (whether you’re 13, 56, or 99)! It just means you have spent a lot more time doing what you love. The fact that some people don’t know how to have let others have fun means THEY might need to do a little growing up!
So bake a cake, make a little magic, dance around, play that game, take a nap! Life’s too short to be that beige, boring adult. Just be exciting adult you!

Day 5 of the October Blogging Challenge is all about favourite movies!! I’ll admit that I tend to not be overly adventurous with movie watching, and I would prefer to watch my favourites which I have seen hundreds of times rather than trying to find something new. Favourite movies fill you with great memories and take you back to a good place even when current times aren’t that way.
I tend to lean towards whimsical, fantastical, fun movies with light plots and a splash of humour. Hopefully some of my favourites bring you a bit of nostalgia and happiness like they bring me!
I finally bought myself a full-length mirror so I’m absolutely ecstatic about being able to use it to share my outfit of the day photos!!
I kind of drove myself a little silly trying to decide what was going to be my FIRST mirror OOTD pick ~ shouldn’t it be special to showcase my kind of wild sense of style?! Maybe it’s a bit appropriate that Mad Hatter Day is right around the corner on October 6th, which is on Tuesday! The Mad Hatter is of course the host of the wild tea parties over in Wonderland and one of my favourite characters ever!
So in celebration, a quick and bonkers Mad Hatter inspired outfit!:
Stripes galore, clashing colours, twirly whirly hair, topsy tipsy teatime and of course topped off with a tilted tophat!
The dress is one of my favourite vintage thrift finds ever, and it was easy to throw on stripey socks, a BIG bow, and of course the hat tops it all off (doesn’t everyone just have a top hat kicking around just in case? You should!)
If there’s ever a movie that sums ME up, it would be Alice in Wonderland!! Really I could have picked almost any quote from that movie, but I really like this one. I like changing, finding new interests, and constantly become a new quirkier fun person. Sometimes a couple of times in a day!
