Their Taking the Hobbits to Isengard for SKI-II Skin Signature Eye Cream, See Ya There!

Like any good Tolkien geek I’ve read and reread almost everything the man has written at least twice. Once in my youth and again in my early adulthood.

And of course, like any good fan I’ve watched and rewatched “Their Taking the Hobbits to Isengard” more times than I’m comfortable admitting. Seriously, I can’t get enough of that witty jingle and of course, the dim witted look on Aragorn’s face. Put that puppy on loop and watch, rewatch, and sing along all damn day to it like the compulsive freaky geek you are! As far as I’m concerned this video is one of Orlando Bloom’s best film moment, I’m talking Oscar worthy!

Today, we celebrate the joy of the return of Tolkien in film as the Hobbit trailer released. We have to wait until next year to actually see the movie but at least we can get all hot and bothered over the trailer.

P.S. I so know Galadriel is using SK-II Skin Signature Eye Cream.

SKI II Skin Signature Eye Cream

I’m shoppin’ new eye creams and I’m wanting indulge in this lightweight eye cream that promises to firm up skin as well as moisturize the delicate skin around your eyes.

Actually, the entire SK-II Collection has been calling to me for the past year….perhaps a beauty resolution for new skincare is in my future.

What are your latest skincare lemmings?

Did you want the good news or the bad news first?

Well, perhaps the bad news first eh?

Spoilers ahead!

We knew it was coming…

Amy Pond’s days as the Doctor’s companions are numbered. Next season we’ll see less and less of the dynamic duo of Amy and Rory and than a complete exit at the season end and a heartbreaking one at that says Moffat. This isn’t any surprise to me considering Arthur was difficult to fit into last season since he was working on theater and other projects plus it’s very impractical to keep a couple in the Tardis. I’m not actually sad to see Amy go, I am sadder to see the boy who waited go though, he’s gained a soft spot in my heart. Amy was great but she was a very overwhelming personality so I think I’m good now and I feel comfortable letting her go. Moffat tweeted a few bits and bobs yesterday about Karen’s demise but nothing too important and of course, he hinted vaguely at a she, he, or it that would be the next companion. I’d love to see Alex set in as a new companion but honestly that would be illogical and would truly upset the time line in many cases. I guess she’s best as a side companion of sorts. I’ve played with the idea that Moffat would stick Barrowman in the Tardis for an entire season but…mmmm….I doubt that. Again, he’d be best suited as a side companion. Rumor mill is that he’ll be back but in what shape or form remains to be seen. There were so many rumors about celebrity season of sorts where the Doctor had a few various companions one of which would be Jennifer Saunders…that would be funny.

But…

I do think it’s about time we finally had a sole male companion in the new series that would be a nice change up.

But we can only speculate for now. If anything, we can hope that we’re teased with a glimpse of the new companion the way Karen in the The Fires of Pompeii and Freema in Army of Ghosts popped up.

As for the good news…well, it’s makeup related. How about a new highlighter from Benefit?

the Muse’s Gift Ideas: Sending Seasonal Zombie Cards!


Too Late
from SIDE FILMS on Vimeo.

Ahhh that was a great introduction to my current post if I do say so myself!

If you’re on my Holiday list you likely got yourself a zombie Christmas card from ThinkGeek this year. I don’t recommend purchasing these as they are expensive and come in packs of four only.

Which is why in honor of Christmas and the Holiday season I do so recommend my very favorite Etsy seller for your Christmas card needs (or any seasonal card need), tinaseamonster.

Tina does some incredibly epic homemade cards that normally have something to do with zombies and the zombie plague. Her shop is one of my first discoveries on Etsy many a year ago and remains a fond favorite to this day. She does a range of various t-shirts, stickers, and totes (I absolutely love her “Panic Buying for the Apocalypse” tote which I have two of) but I always go back year after year after year for her fabulous cards for various Holidays particularly Christmas ones!

These are some of her Holiday cards. She sells them in variety packs for as little as $12 for a box of 10 with envelopes.

If you’re a bit of a geek or just a fan of zombies she’s an essential Etsy shop you won’t want to miss!
