Top 5 Superhero Movies

     You'd have to be living under a rock to not have noticed the abundance of superhero films that have been released over the last ten years now. These were largely the creation of Marvel Studios, but other companies have joined in on the resurgence, resulting in a massive collection to choose from. I've seen quite a lot of these, though I'm not a comic book reader, so my knowledge of most of these characters is limited to the films, augmented by internet articles. I will confess, that I feel I'm reaching my saturation point for them though, and it gets harder for each new release to really capture my attention, and not be "just another superhero film". So, to weed out my favourites from the crowd, here are my top five from the last few years, in no particular order.

Outfit - Heigh Ho!

     I'm feeling a little Grumpy today... yes, for this week's look I've put together an outfit inspired by Grumpy, from 'Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs'. The main reason I chose Grumpy was because his was the closest colour palette to items in my wardrobe, and so the easiest to put together. I started with the red beanie (my only other one is black), and this deep red top, which I added a belt to, to create a tunic sort of style, like the dwarfs wear. I don't have brown trousers, so I chose these skinny black jeans instead, with brown boots, so I still had some of that colour present, plus the chunky style seemed appropriate for the tough mining work they do! My makeup is pretty natural, but I did use brown eyeshadow to match the colour scheme. The jewellery was also inspired by the dwarfs' mining work, as I thought the small silver discs and the piece of quartz would be things they would potentially dig out of a mountain side! And of course, I had to pull a few grumpy faces while taking these photos!

To Spring

     Spring is a time of renewal. A time of rebirth, of reincarnation. It is the season of change and fresh starts. A season when life springs back into the world, and joy and energy burst forth in ourselves. We spring clean for a reason; to start over, to refresh ourselves, and prepare for new beginnings.
