All I need is you and I...

So it is Inspiration Wednesday.
Thank goodness I can post something up for you all.

As most of you know, the Oscars were this past Sunday, which meant no studying for me but researching people's dresses and watching live feeds of the show.
Sadly, there weren't a lot of people that made my jaw drop, which is essentially a good thing since I would have gone crazy trying to choose the best dress. But I found a top three which is very good.

Michelle Williams in Louis Vuitton / Rooney Mara in Givenchy

So for my runners up, I have two ladies for you. First, Michelle Williams. I believe this woman can rock anything and I think this is her best look yet. She looks gorgeous and adorable and everything in between in her ruffled coral gown. I love the vintage-y inspired cut of the dress especially on her. I don't think anyone would have looked good in this except for her.
Next is the lovely Rooney Mara. Again with this girl and her clasped hands. I knew she was going to be in my top picks even before I saw her dress and when I found out it was white, oh my goodness. I couldn't wait to see her. This photo doesn't really do it justice. It has cut-outs on the back and just drapes beautifully. And side note: her make up is perfect.

However if I had to choose just one stunner on that night, it would be this woman, the queen:

Angelina Jolie in Atelier Versace

Seriously. Angelina Jolie proves that you can't go wrong with a black dress. First off, it's velvet, which is awesome. I love me a black dress but a velvet black dress? Hell yes. Also, the leg seen around the world. Love me some leg cleavage. There's just nothing wrong with this dress. The way it falls, the crumb-catcher-y neckline. It's perfect.
Also her date wasn't so bad looking either.
The king and queen.

Anyway.
Happy Leap Year.

What doesn't kill you...

Thanks to my wonderful computer that functions only when it wants to, my blog posts have been all over the place.
I've been super busy with school which adds to the reasons I haven't been posting a lot. I haven't done Inspiration Wednesday for two weeks now and that is not good. But I hope this Wednesday I can finally post one up for you guys.
For today's post, I decided to just talk about my current loves and favorites and some things that are on my lust list, which is still growing.
So without further ado.

The current favorites.

1. Instagram
Yes. I have become one of those people. And it's great. For those of you who don't know, Instagram is just a way to share photos on your iPhone. It has fun filters to edit your pictures and stuff and I love it. You can follow me if you'd like - @queenvictoriareigns. Smiles.
2. Kate Moss Lipstick Collection for Rimmel London
I recently bought the orange-y toned one on the far right (Veronica did too!) which is called 12. Yeah, they didn't have names. I wish they did because this is such a great collection. Also they're amazingly inexpensive which is also a plus.
3. DIY Projects
During the fall, I ordered a crap ton of studs and I became obsessed. I just finished a little something to wear at midnight for The Hunger Games inspired by the character Seneca Crane (If you don't know who that is, read the book, it'll change your life). This photo is just a sneak peek of it. I'm so excited.
4. Le Specs sunglasses in "Digital Nomad"
I cannot believe I actually won these in a giveaway from Analisa over at Rouge Fox. It's been pretty sunny here so I've been wearing these all the time. However today was not so sunny so it might rain which sucks. But whatever, I'm still in love with these.

And on the Lust List.

1. The Hunger Games merchandise
Of course I want everything they came out with like the Peeta pillow case, the bookmark, multiple shirts, a mockingjay pin, etc. but I particularly love the China Glaze nail polish collection for The Hunger Games that is out now. Today my mother sent me this picture since she was super awesome and got them for me since there isn't anywhere I can get them here. So excited to wear them. Thanks mom!
2. American Apparel Disco Pants
I swore to myself that I would get these. I've been obsessing over them for a really long time. So it's about time that I get them. They go with basically everything and they're just amazeballs.

So there you go. Hopefully I will see you very soon.

Thought of you and where you'd gone...

HAT - F21/ LE SPECS SUNGLASSES/ THRIFTED CALVIN KLEIN SWEATER AND CUTOFFS/ TIGHTS - MOSSIMO/ VINTAGE BOOTS AND DOONEY & BOURKE BAG/ KATE MOSS BY RIMMEL LONDON LIPSTICK IN 12

Hey all!
So I'm back after what seems like forever. Things have been really crappy lately but still alright. So a couple weeks ago, Veronica and I went to a party at her friend's apartment. Just for the record, we never party. Or let me rephrase, we haven't partied in a while. We like to go out and shop or see a movie or something but yeah. So the night that we actually go out, someone spills something on my phone. I went one week without a phone and that seems dramatic but my computer also hasn't been working which explains my absence here. I'm in effing college and my phone and computer weren't working.
But yesterday was good since I got my new iPhone. Yup, I gave in. I will certainly miss my trusty Blackberry. So many memories on that thing. As far as the computer thing goes, I can deal until spring break. There's the library and what not.

This past Friday, Veronica and I had a little date night and saw The Vow. We loved it. Go see it. I'm in love with Rachel McAdams all the time. And I don't usually like Channing Tatum sometimes but his movies that consist of great women, ie. Dear John, always make me like him. Also the fact that his body is not hard to look at, makes it easy to like him as well. Smiles.
So I have a four day break this weekend thank goodness, especially since I haven't been studying for the three exams I have this week. I'm counting the days until spring break which means I come home and The Hunger Games.
So yeah. I hope you all had a great Valentine's Day. And happy anniversary to my parents today. Smiles.
Love you all. xo

You're running wild...

It's that time again - Inspiration Wednesday.
And this week, it's this guy.

I love controversy.
So it's no wonder, I fell in love with Tyler Shields, everything he does, and everything he is.
He's the guy that's been taking those beautifully eerie pictures of those celebs we all know and love. That's because he's friends with all of them and they have discovered what an amazing artist he is. You may have heard of Mischa Barton fondling raw meat or Heather Morris with her black eye. Yes, all this guy. He is super freaky and I love it.
Though his photos are sometimes shocking, he doesn't mean to shock. He has a way of taking the stuff the news tells us to fear and playing around with it. A lot of people are afraid of blood, and fire, and guns, and violence, and he photographs a lot of it. A lot.
He has a great eye and all of his photos are stunning to look at. I find myself always looking forward to what he does next. I mean, the guy shot someone for real, at the opening exhibit of his "Collisions" show in 2010. He was wearing a bulletproof vest but still. He pushes boundaries and I love that. He also gets his subjects to push their own boundaries, which makes for a great photograph. Not only is he amazeballs at photography, the man can write. He recently released a book last year called Smartest Man, which I have yet to read, but I heard the response was incredible. So I'm looking forward to that.

Anyway. Tyler Shields. You have to check him out. I'm surprised it took me this long to do an Inspiration Wednesday about him. It would be a dream to have him photograph me. Every time I see his work, I want to do a photoshoot. I might be doing a shoot kind of inspired by him pretty soon. Hopefully.

So hope all you lovely people enjoyed this. Have a great rest of the week. Smiles.

You stole my life...


It is a very lazy Saturday.
I have nothing to do today but it feels really good. So I guess I'll just update you all on life.

Last night Veronica and I had a little date night downtown. It was well-deserved in my opinion, we've been working so hard. Things are beginning to stress us out, and I felt dinner and a movie was a really good idea. Actually it wasn't dinner and a movie, it was a crap ton of cookies, movie, coffee, and Taco Bell. Smiles. We saw The Grey, and just saying, if you want to cry, maybe laugh, yell, and be scared as balls, go see this movie. Such a great choice on our part. It also reaffirmed my love for wolves, and Liam Neeson.

So this wolf thing. It's kind of unhealthy. Many figurines, shirts, and blankets of wolves surround my world. I've posted about wolves before and I think I'm super obsessed now. I think more wolves are in my future.

Other news.
Today is the Andy man's birthday.




I just wanted to give a birthday shout out to this guy who has been there for me through the roller coaster that is my life. He's been a great help. Some people may not understand us but that's okay. Anyway, happy birthday to him. Smiles.

Anyway.
Super Bowl XLVI is tomorrow. Veronica and I are going to jam. Hope everyone has an awesome Super Bowl Sunday.

Sorry if this post was a little different than you're used to. It kind of reminded me of my old stuff from a couple years ago.

You've been running from life...

I don't know why I made Wednesdays my busiest day of the week but I did, and that has come to bite me in the ass a little bit.
I already have three classes and a discussion to go to every Wednesday. But today I just happened to have a billion more deadlines to add to all that and I am exhausted.
Being so busy, I can't believe I almost forgot to post an Inspiration Wednesday.
So here goes.

That's right people. That little thing we have all seen lately: The Hunger Games.
First of all, I never thought I would love a series even a fraction as much as I love Harry Potter. I mean, nothing will beat Harry Potter, but this is pretty damn close, if I do say so myself. And I've fallen in love.
I was a little skeptical about it at first because I was hearing a lot about it and people were comparing it to Twilight and Harry Potter and I was just like seriously guys? But reading it, you find out that it's not like anything else, so I really don't know why it's being compared to anything at all.
But yes, thanks to Veronica and my sister, I am now obsessed with The Hunger Games. I've recently started the second book, Catching Fire, and I am almost done. I seriously cannot wait until the movie comes out which conveniently falls during my spring break. It's going to be so great especially since Veronica is coming to Monrovia too to see it with me and my family. There's just a lot I can't wait to do. Smiles.

Oh by the way, happy February to all!
