There's this playroom, and the toys that live there pretty much have their own secret life when their people are not around. The self-proclaimed star of the show is Rugby, a stuffed tiger and the favorite toy that the main little girl, Jamie, received for Christmas the year before. Christmas Eve returns to the playroom and the toys are ready to welcome the new toys that Jamie and her brother Jesse will open the next morning to their world. Well, everyone except Rugby. He wants to get back in a beautifully wrapped gift box under the tree and be the star of the show once again. Adventures ensue and the toys accidentally set loose this year's Christmas toy to Jamie...a warrior space queen named Meteora.
And as a toddler, I really loved Meteora's wardrobe full of shiny metallic fabrics and galactic accents. And the fact that she was a strong, independent female who knew her worth, was really awesome, too!
Thanks to Modcloth and Eclectic Eccentricity Jewellery, my childhood dreams to dress like my favorite queen of the asteroids are realized...30 years later, but who's counting?
How amazing is this skirt? It's the Intuitive Impact Mini Skirt, and the metallic texture and swishy fabric make this the most party perfect skirt in the galaxy! It was a total impulse Cyber Monday buy, but I don't regret it one bit!
My favorite jewelry right now is by Eclectic Eccentricity. The mix of colors and textures is perfect for a quirky, geeky gal who loves a bit of of glitz and glam! I bought this Eclectic Eccentricity necklace (and others!) from Modcloth. I really love that this one has stars, planets and clock gears! Really appeals to my Whovian sensibilities!
These earrings looked quite nice with my Eclectic Eccentricity pieces. They're from a local gift boutique in Jonesboro called Froggie's Full Sun! Really cute gifts for everyone on your list, and everyone that works there is so nice and super helpful! I usually walk in (just looking or to take photos for the magazine) and walk out with a bag or two full of goodies, because you can always use a gift for someone...or yourself! Like last weekend for instance, I walked into Full Sun with the intent to buy a few presents and bought myself a bag full of Musee bath balms to prep for upcoming press deadline stress. Treat yourself! "Dancing in the Moonlight" is my personal favorite! The star confetti and calming scents turn your bath into a swirling galactic pool worthy of Queen Meteora!
Remember, stop and take it easy during the hustle and bustle of this holiday season. Treat yourself like the queen of the galaxy you are! Whether that means a luxurious bath, a new skirt or necklace, or just some time relaxing with those you hold dearest, enjoy this season and the love that it brings!
Happy Holidays, y'all!
