Let's talk movies: The Hunger Games Mockingjay Part 1

Well, hell. If you haven't seen this movie yet I'm so sorry in advance for this post. I LOVEEEEE The Hunger Games, book, movie-all that jazz. I devoured all the books after watching the first movie. One of my best friends and I went to the theater for the Hunger Games Marathon and saw all the movies in a row. We dressed inspired by the movie. Some might say we are a weee bit nerdy. I just say we are enjoying the moment. The movie gets 5 stars from me and I do plan on going to see it again as soon as humanly possible. As soon as I got home I had to reread Mockingjay. In the beginning (of time) lol, when I read the books before I finished Mockingjay I was #TeamGale (like the rest of the world probably) but after reading the Mockingjay I'm totally #TeamPeeta. I could ramble on and on about this subject as it seems to be the only thing my brain can think about lately. Let's talk about Jennifer Lawrence and that song! Stuck in my head! Here are some pics of our time. Yes, I made custom Hunger Game nails. I couldn't help myself.

Bad blogger reporting for duty

Hi guys, I'm still here. I have just been in a reading funk. Does that ever happen to you? Any recommendations on what will get me out of it? I haven't read a book in almost a month! That is unheard of.  I was reading a book or two a day. Not a good thing to be in a book slump when you are a book blogger! In other news, Mockingjay comes out next week! For some of my beloved books turned into movies I like to be inspired by the characters. Wear something similar, inspired hair or makeup or something. I know, maybe I'm getting to old for that... NOT! LOL I'm planning to watch all the Hunger Game movies in a marathon the theater is doing. Last year Cover Girl had a big campaign with Hunger Game inspired make up looks. I had a ton of posts on that last year.  This year I plan to wear a Catniss rebellion inspired outfit. Dark colors, boots, braided hair, an attempt at flawless skin, a matte gray smokey eye and nude lip and crochet scarf. I'll share a picture when I put this together. Any of you guys going to see the movie with any Hunger Game inspired things going on? I plan to see this movie at least twice so let's see how creative I can get. :)
