A Very She & Him Christmas

The first time I fell in love with Zooey Deschanel’s voice was when she sang “Baby It’s Cold Outside” in Elf, so of course I’m super excited that She & Him are coming out with a Christmas album! They’ve released the tracklist and they have a preview up of the first song. I’ll absolutely be picking this one up.

Tarina Tarantino’s Victorian Navajo collection

It’s all really pretty, but I particularly like the long pendant necklace & the mod ring. Really, I pretty much lust after everything that she makes. Maybe someday it’ll fit into my budget a little better!


Naturally, as an avid Instagram user, I was stoked when I found out about Statigram. It lets you view everything online instead of just on your phone and also gives you all sorts of analytics and stats about your account & usage. It’s pretty fun to poke around on.

The “Musings of a Cigarette Smoking Man” & “Unusual Suspects”

I so loved learning the (possible) origin stories of the Cigarette Smoking Man and The Lone Gunmen in these two X-Files episodes. The “Musings” episode suddenly made me empathize with someone I just found out was behind devastating assassinations. It’s a testament to the writers as well as the actor that I practically wanted to cry at his writer’s disappointment at the end of the episode. I watched “Unusual Suspects” today and thoroughly enjoyed learning how The Lone Gunmen originally got together. The episode was so well-written and the story was great.

Basically, I’m very much enjoying watching the series. I do have to say that I’m glad to be watching the whole thing now via Netflix instant watch because I can’t even imagine having to wait months and months after some of these cliffhangers!

Sidenote: Alex Krycek definitely reminds me of Lindsey McDonald from Angel – anyone else?

Taking too many pictures of my cat, of course. 

Have a great weekend!
