Sanchez and Movie/ Book reviews

I have been extremely busy lately and am trying as hard as I can to get my blog up to date before I leave for Japan on the 2nd February. I am so ridiculously excited!! Lots to update on so here it goes. Expect a lot of posts in the next couple of weeks. 

This is my dress up for a mexican party that one of the boys from Splendour had for his 21st. As you know I am an avid Simpson's fan so as my neck tattoo I decided to write "Santos.L.Halper". That's mexican enough right?

Having a lot of fun with makeup lately. Never even used to use eyeshadow, now I am playing with eyelashes and everything! Lani (Kawaii Priestess) taught me everything I know.

The Splendour family somehow fitting into a polaroid. Love them all so much. Such beautiful humans.

Post party selfies

So many 21sts polaroids and photobooth pictures. Happy to have finally changed my wallet.

Before baby got her tail bitten and nearly lost it. More on that later.

My average shop.

Such a beautiful little american bulldog puppy at the pet shop. 

Ok so I have been completely obsessed with horror movies lately. I don't know why, considering I used to hate horror. But now it's pretty much all I watch. I figured out recently that my favourite genre is "torture porn". Which is pretty much exactly what it sounds like. Here is a list of movies I have watched recently, that if you are in to horror/ gore then I suggest you watch. In order from best to not as good but still worth watching for the weirdness.

House of the devil - Not so much gore but an extremely well made suspense horror movie. Made to look like it was made in the 70's and is one of my favourites.
Martyrs - Bit of a brain melting gore fest. (French)
Frontier(s) - Extremely slow beginning but once you get past that it's pretty messed up. (Also French)
REC - Another one of my favourite horror genres is found footage, and this is a great example. REC 2 is a great sequel as well. REC 3 is not a sequel and I haven't seen it. But apparently REC 4 is out now and it's a sequel to REC 2. I know it doesn't seem to make any sense. (Spanish)
Hostel series - Absolutely loved these movies. Can't believe I hadn't seen them sooner! I love that in each movie you find out more and more. I don't like sequels that don't follow the same story but instead are just an identical plot in different settings.
I spit on your grave - Ultimate revenge gore movie
Tusk - Just a real messed up movie. Found out after that it was comedy sort of.  

That's all I can remember for now.

Books to read:

Gone Girl - Either watch the movie or read the book. Because one is going to ruin the other one for you. I prefer book because books are always better then the movie. But in saying that I really did enjoy this movie. It was just a shame that I already knew all the plot twists that were coming up. Such a good read.

Jaycee Dugard "A Stolen Life" - Such a heartbreaking story but an eye opening read. This is the story of Jaycee, a girl who was kidnapped on her way to school one morning when she was 11 years old, and then spent the next 18 years living with her kidnapper.

The five people you meet in heaven - A really well written story that makes you reflect on your own life. Completely not religious otherwise I probably wouldn't have read it. More spiritual if anything.

21sts/ halloween feat makeup by Kawaii Priestess

It's been a while so I am going to attempt a real quick catch up this week to try and start the new year being as up to date as possible. During October- November I had over 9 21st's in a couple of weekends. I had only had a couple the entire year! It was pretty intense but extremely fun. Especially considering that most of them were dress up (they are my favourites). Above is my makeup for Saya's 21st that Lani did for me, also known as Kawaii Priestess. She also has instagram and tumblr.

Saya's makeup was also done by Lani but we forgot to take a decent photo of the eyes. V goth.

Also if I forgot to mention, the theme of Saya's party was goth. It was a great time.

I said a speech, I threw up right after. One of my biggest fears is public speaking. But I think I am getting better.

This was makeup I did for Kieran's 21st. I have learnt so much from Lani over the past year. I never even really bothered with eyeshadow. But now I'm contouring and everything! I mostly use M.A.C, Australia, Benefit, Lime Crime and just Garnier BB cream as foundation.

The Gloria Jean's Family.

This was taken on the train to Kelly's 21st. I have also gotten in to using fake eyelashes which I never ever used unless I needed them for dancing or modelling. Was way too lazy to do my hair this night though.

At this point in time I was really exhausted and not in the mood to be dressing up fancy and socialising.

The theme of this party was black and white. Kelly wore this incredible Camilla dress and just looked dazzling. My favourite people above.

Ran in to an old friend, the stunner Haylee. It was lovely catching up even if it was only for a little bit.

The night went really well until I had to get the cab to pull over off the M5 to vomit outside because I get the worst carsickness in cabs. But other then that it was a lovely night.

For Halloween/ Lani's 21st/ Madi's 21st I decided to dress up old hollywood glamour which was Madi's theme. But I added a little Macabre twist. I did my makeup and mum helped me with my victory rolls. I actually love victory rolls! I would do them all the time if they weren't so high maintenance. 

Madi's was at Crane Bar Sydney and it was a stunning affair. The decorations and food were great and of course Madi looked ridiculously beautiful. I spent the night chatting with Gen, her boyfriend Nick and Lauren until I left around 10pm to head to Lani's.

Felt so out of place walking around King's Cross with all the girls being half naked.

Fake blood everywhere! I met up with Rick and headed to the bar we were meeting Lani. The walk was longer then expected and this night was ridiculously hot and humid. At the bar I felt pretty off, so we went and sat on the rooftop, but it didn't help much. I went to get a drink at the bar by myself. When I was ordering I started to feel quite dizzy. I remember thinking "I wonder if I can eat that apple behind the bar" and "I am really thirsty I should get some water". Next thing I know I am falling. A security guard caught me somehow. And whilst on the floor I fainted again. I had only had two drinks the entire night! He took me outside where I sat for at least 5 minutes trying to get my brain to work again.

So I ended up having to leave the venue, which was fine because I was pretty keen to go home anyway. Lani had still not arrived so we went and waited in some random place for her to arrive.

I was happy I got to see Lani for her birthday night, even if I wasn't able to spend the whole night with her.

These aren't even all of the 21st's! There are more coming. So ridiculous. October and November are really popular months of birth it seems.
