Review: How to Train Your Dragon 2

Have I made it clear how much I LOVE summer movie dates with my boys? Seriously – it’s the best time! And during the summer there are so many more options to see and something to make us all happy. This last mother/sons date was to see How to Train Your Dragon 2 – and I loved it! Read the rest of this entry

Review: X-MEN: Days of Future Past

[For reference, I wrote this post in May…and forgot to post it. Oops!!]

I took my two favorite young men on a date Saturday night – to see the newest X-Men. They really are the best guys to see movies with – I get to control the popcorn, they laugh in the right places, they had intensity to the drama by sitting on the edge of their seats or gasping in surprise, and they always talk to me for hours after the movie.

StitchFix #4

My StitchFix box was waiting for me when I returned from Costa Rica and I was really excited to try it out again after last month’s FIRST success and the nice little note they sent me. I should have tempered my anticipation so I wouldn’t have been so disappointed.

My Rating System

Since this site is called “Eccentric Randomness” I decided I couldn’t very well have a normal rating system. No two thumbs up or five stars or anything like that for me. I need something different.

RANDOM Objects Needed

RANDOM Question: What’s the most random real object you can think of? Like, a platypus or a pineapple. Looking for a really funny, silly, random object to use as a “rating” for reviews. Like, “This service gets 3.5 Platypi.” (You don’t have to add your name/website unless you want credit if I select your suggestion.)

It’s a Julep Day!

JulepI got a new subscription box today – Julep! For me, this is a great box, since it features nail care and colors. I was born with great nails that are usually very strong and I can grow naturally long – no fake nails for this girl!

Based on my style profile with them, I’m “Classic with a Twist: Youโ€™re an iconic beauty with a timeless aesthetic. Youโ€™re drawn to chic, elegant colors that pair well with any occasion…” – I like them already! ๐Ÿ™‚

I’ll wait to write my actual review until I try the products but the picture is a quick preview of the box.
