    5 Fandom Friday: Characters I Would Invite To My Thanksgiving Feast

    rp_fandom5.png
     
    Whoo, another Fandom Friday! Can you believe Thanksgiving is less than a week away? This month is flying by wayyy too fast! It seems like it was just Halloween! 
     
    This week’s theme: Characters I Would Invite To My Thanksgiving Feast!
     
     
    #1 – Mr. Spock
    This would be for my dad as I know nothing would make him happier than meeting his role model. I would probably spend most of the dinner doing weird and random things just to hear Spock say something about it being most illogical and then I could die happy.

    #2 – The 10th Doctor
    Tennant will forever and always be my Doctor. My hope would be that during our lovely Thanksgiving feast some kind of hijinks or end of the world scenario will occur and that once we have worked together to make things right, that he would decide to sweep me away in the TARDIS as his new companion. A girl can dream…

    #3 – Ben Wyatt (from Parks and Recreation)
    May seem like an odd choice until you realize that Ben is pretty much my perfect man with his lovable dorkiness and even if he and Leslie are indeed great together, let’s just say in this hypothetical world they have yet to meet and I still have a chance. Once again, a girl can dream… 
     
    #4 – Sirius Black
    Sirius has always been my favorite Harry Potter character and I would seriously (see what I did there?) love to hear all about the world of magic AND the Marauders. I’m one of those people that would give up an arm and a leg (okay, not really) for a Marauders book because there is so much storytelling POTENTIAL just waiting to be told. Plus after being cooped up in Azkaban for all that time, I’m sure he would definitely appreciate a delicious home-cooked feast.
     
    #5 – Veronica Mars
    It can’t be all about the boys! The gal that springs to the top of my mind that I would love to have Thanksgiving dinner with is none other than my girl crush Veronica Mars. If even just a tiny bit of her wit, sass, and awesomeness rubbed off on me, I would be a happy girl.

    REVIEW: Butter London’s Shag

     
    I love Thanksgiving not only for the time with loved ones and delicious foods but because it also marks the beginning of Christmas time! So for my Thanksgiving day nails, I decided to go with a polish that would transition perfectly from fall into the holiday winter season. I think butter LONDON’s “Shag” was just right for the job. It’s not a new polish from this year but instead from last year’s Autumn/Winter collection. 
     
    Shag is a beautiful metallic burgundy brown shade. The color reminds me of autumn leaves and the shimmer adds a touch of Christmas. It’s very pretty, and I can see it being flattering on all skin tones. The formula is very nice and applies well. I used 2-3 coats to achieve full opacity, then topped with Sally Hansen’s Insta-Dri Anti-Chip Top Coat. Definitely one of my favorites!
     
    Retails for $14 at ULTA, butterlondon.com, and Amazon ($15 Prime, not an affiliate link).
