Yeah, so this week has pretty much sucked to the high heavens and no amount of cookie dough consumption or hours of cupcake porn that I look at will make anything feel normal or better. It’s been the hardest week that my husband (still so weird to say or write) will ever have to go through, and my heart just breaks for him and his family. I truly have no idea what he could possibly be thinking or feeling, luckily though, we have some of the most supportive friends out there (thank you Absola and Anna for all the foodie love!)

Also, I am so excited for the new Tim Burton movie, that unless you’ve been under a rock-which I guess could be kinda cool-then you would know that Alice is taking on a whole new feel. It’s not the 1950’s classic one where you want to go play, or the horrible 1980’s live action one, it’s a dark and creepy typical Burton movie. Can one really think of a more twisted childhood novel to recreate though, from a Tim Burton perspective?? The story plays Alice as being 17, and after attending a party at a Victorian estate where she gets proposed to in front of snooty society types, she runs off following a white rabbit into a hole and ending up in Wonderland. She had visited here before, but for some reason she cannot remember.
The part I am most looking forward to would have to be the Red Queen, played by, who else? Helena Bonham Carter. With the favorite retort of “Off with their heads!” Tim decided to capture the creepiness with a nice serene moat filled with floating heads of those who disobeyed. Don’t worry kiddies, it may sound dark and demented, but you will be able to sleep afterwards. You might just have to check the closet a few more times than normal.
So, in the anticipation of the movie, Urban Decay (an amazing make-up line that is vegan friendly) came out with a “Book of Shadows“.
