My Instaweek #42

Hi cute geeks! This isn’t really a new thing as I’ve shared my instagrams in round up posts in the past, but I really want to get into the habit of sharing my ‘life of a cute geek’ with you, what I’ve been up to and a few snaps. I use both my iPhone 5 and iPod touch 5th gen to take my daily snaps and blog photos.

Introducing ‘My Instaweek‘!

My Instaweek

Rainy at Last – Last weekend we drove into the mountains and it finally rained! Why am I so excited about rain? Well because I live in the Canary Islands and rain is such a novelty here. I snapped this in the car on the way to our nieces birthday party, I love the way those brake lights on the car in front have blurred.

The Lemony Pear book – I found this hilarious book in Carrefour for Spanish speakers learning English. It’s called The Lemony Pear! and has the most awesome illustrations. This page about feeling unwell had me in stitches laughing.

Pink Furby inspired nails – I painted my nails this awesome pink and I used my Happy Meal Furby to pose them instead of the nail polish bottle.

Did you know that last week was #ChocolateWeek? Not that I need any excuse but I enjoyed some really nice crepes with nutella and various chocolate bars. This Milka Bubbly chocolate bar was absolutely delicious and I polished the whole thing off.

Going Batty – I had a naughty little trip to Primark and picked up this bat t-shirt for about 3€. I did have one similar but it got ruined in the wash. A geek girl needs her wardrobe options for Halloween week you know! Saying that I’ll probably get more wear out of this year round than my evil pumpkin t-shirt.

5 Awesome Halloween Costumes

5 Fandom FridayIt’s Friday which means it’s time for 5 Fandom Friday where you can get to know a little bit more about me and the things I obsess and geek about.

Thanks to The Nerdy Girlie and SuperSpaceChick for coming up with the idea!

Here are 5 awesome Halloween costumes, 3 of my own and 2 I would love to do in the future:

5 Awesome Halloween Costumes

1. Tim Burton’s Corpse Bride Halloween Costume
Let’s start out with a Tim Burton inspired costume. Emily the Corpse Bride was one of my favourite costumes to put together. I know it’s not exactly the same, but I like to use what I can find and put my own spin on things. The makeup was fun to do and my Mum really helped me out with the dress, which was originally some kind of Sari dress that I picked up in a second hand shop. It totally deserves it’s own post, so more details to come.

2. Fiona The Human Halloween Costume
I’ve only seen a couple of episodes of Adventure Time, but I’ve seen some really awesome Fiona the Human cosplays and I think it’s a costume I would love to DIY one day. If I could get my BF to dress in a Marshall Lee costume, it would be even more awesome!
Available from SpiritHalloween

3. Tim Burton’s Mad Hatter Halloween Costume
As you can probably tell, I’m a bit of a Tim Burton geek so I had to include my Mad Hatter costume in this post. You can see how I put the costume together and little additions I made to it here:

4. Lady Joker Costume
As I’m putting this list together I almost forgot that I dressed as a Lady Joker for Carnival a couple of years ago. Okay okay, another Tim Burton inspiration, I can’t help it. (Of course the first Batman movies were the best and Jack Nicholson was the best Joker) ;) Another post with details is coming up, but this is another one I put together myself.

5. Coraline Costume
Coraline is certainly on my list of to do Halloween costumes. The costume itself is quite easy, it’s the wig and button eyes that will really pull it together. A blue jumper with white cut out stars attached, jeans, short blue wig and huge black buttons for eyes. If you can find a yellow rain jacket and boots even better! I love this one I found on Flickr!

Which is your favourite from these awesome Halloween Costumes?

The Vampire Diaries Theories: Season 6

The Vampire Diaries is back, at last! After watching episode 2 ‘Yellow Ledbetter’ I just had to write a blog post with my latest theories and thoughts. *Spoiler alert*

I haven’t watched any promos or read any spoilers prior to writing this, so here goes.

Vampire Diaries Theories

So Damon and Bonnie didn’t get through to the living side and were swept away to May 10th 1994, where they keep reliving the same day. Mystic Falls looks just how it did, except there are no people around. Damon and Bonnie check out Elena’s house and there are toys all over the porch, which are probably Jenna’s and Elena must be almost 2 years old since she was born June 22nd 1992.

Vampire Diaries Theories

#Bamon then go to the Salvatore Boarding House which is just how it was complete with a selection of 90’s cds. We are also treated to Mr Salvatore dancing around the kitchen to ‘Whata man’ making pancakes. :)

Bonnie tries her best at a crossword puzzle but as the days repeat, she can’t seem to get one of the answers correct until one day it’s filled in. She accuses Damon of finishing it, but he didn’t, so they know someone else is there with them, wherever they are.

The answer to the crossword was Yellow Ledbetter. This is a Pearl Jam song from 1992, which just so happens to be the B-side to their single ‘Jeremy‘. Coincidence? I think not. My first thought was that little Elena filled the crossword in, but then I realized she was far too young. Could it be Bonnie’s Grams giving her some sort of clue?

In the lyrics to Yellow Ledbetter (which are often misheard) there are a few lines that stand out to me:

“Unsealed on a porch a letter sat”

“Ah yeah, can you see them out on the porch? Yeah, but they don’t wave.”

What if there is some kind of letter from Grams hidden on one of the front porches with a message for Bonnie?

Here’s a line from the song Jeremy:

Jeremy spoke in class today
Try to forget this…
Try to erase this…

Onto the next part that really made me think:

In the meantime, Elena is having the memories of Damon erased from her mind by Elaric. The trigger moment when she realizes she is in love with him is when she is looking in the mirror and Damon has found her necklace and puts it on her. Alaric changes that memory for Elena, so she thinks Damon didn’t give her the necklace.

Meanwhile in 1994, Damon has found the necklace in a drawer and puts it in a box. I think #Bamon have time travelled so that Damon can redo that scene and ‘not’ give Elena the necklace, which would be a butterfly effect and so the rewiring that Elaric has done on Elena is affecting Bonnie and Damon at the same time, which results in #Delena never happening.

Hope that makes sense? Let me know in the comments below what you think of my theories.
