Beauty and the Beast

I was thrilled to get a sneak peak of Beauty and the Beast last week. I hadn’t seen the animated version in years, but boy did this bring back memories. Belle was always my favorite princess. As a child I was constantly reading, on the bus, during recess, in math class, under my covers with a flashlight, you name it – I read it. Belle is my spirit animal, she dreamt of far away places and exciting adventures. I can relate. Watching this move reminded me of being a child with a world of possibilities ahead of you. Needless to say I LOVED it!

I highly recommend seeing the movie in 3D, it just made it – especially the “Be Our Guest” montage. To celebrate the movie, I wanted to share some of the fun Beauty and the Beast accessories that are out there for adults. Yes that’s right, Beauty and the Beast is not just for the kids anymore!

Beauty and the Beast Stained Glass Rose Compact ($12)

This is so beautiful and I’m sure it would receive tons of compliments every time you pulled it out of your bag.

Beauty and the Beast Limited Edition Fine China Tea Set ($249.95)

This is pricey, but how AMAZING! I would start drinking tea just to use this set!

Lay Around the Castle Shirt ($23.50)

I love this take on the “Be Our Guest Song.”

Enchanted Rose Crossbody Bag ($59.95)

This is so little and cute! It would make the perfect bag for a whimsical outing.

Luke Henderson Book Clutch with Brushes ($45)

This is a really cute brush set. The front says “Beauty is Found Within.”

Vintage Style Yellow Stretch Cap Sleeve Swing Dress ($68)

In case you wanted to dress up as Belle, I found THE dress. This is perfect for any event and not too costumey.

Beauty and the Beast Journal ($19.95)

This journal is just stunning and would add some whimsy to a boring day at work.

Off-the-Shoulder Graphic Tee ($10.49)

I love this part of Belle’s song and love how feminine this shirt is. It was on super sale when I wrote this, so a great deal all around.

Disney Beauty And The Beast Note Card Box Set ($25.41)

How fun would it be to receive one of these in the mail? There are 20 beautiful cards in this collection.

Floral Lace Cold-Shoulder Dress ($32.99)

This dress was inspired by the movie and it is SO adorable.

50 Shades Darker

On Wednesday I had the opportunity to attend an advance screening of 50 Shades Darker with a few friends. The screening was a lot of fun; we all received masks similar to the one Anastasia wears to the Masquerade Ball and I made sure to get a big cup of wine because you definitely need it to watch this movie with a theater full of strangers.

If you haven’t read the books, I highly recommend that you read them before seeing this movie. They had to cram a lot into the run time and they left out a lot of the backstory. So if you didn’t already know Christian Grey’s story you might think he was crazy and possessive. One of the main things they left out was Christian’s therapist Dr. Flynn. Anastasia even gets to meet him and talk to him and he explains why Christian has a need to control everything. It does sound like he makes a cameo in the third movie, but he was definitely referenced multiple times in the second book.

Here are a few ways you can get your 50 Shades fix in case you want more:

1.Masquerade Mask ($15.90)

You can get the exact mask that Ana wears to the masquerade party and it’s affordable!

2. Ana’s Lipsticks

According to @evelynenoraz, the 50 Shades Darker makeup artist, “They were a liquid lipstick from Mac Cosmetics for the red ( plus Mac lip liner ) and from Anastasia for the deep berry color ( liquid lipstick as well ) or Glossier lipstain.”

Based on that statement here are my guesses for the exact shades:

MAC Cherry Lip Liner ($17.50)

MAC Cosmetics Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolor in Feels So Grand ($21)

ILIA Lipstick Arabian Nights ($26)

MAC Burgundy Lip Liner ($17.50)

Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick in Heathers ($20)

 

Glossier Generation G in Jam ($18)

3. Ana’s Eyes from the Masquerade

According to Evelyn, she used Dior’s Diorshow Fusion Mono Eyeshadow in Lune and Millenium ($31/each).

Trailer is out. Looking beautiful Dakota 💕#fiftyshadesdarker #makeupbyme #anastasiasteele

4. Jimmy Choo Lang Patent Strappy Sandal ($795)

During that steamy dinner/elevator scene, Anastasia was wearing the Jimmy Choo Lang sandals.

If these are out of your price range, you can try the Pleaser brand shoes that are an exact match for only $52.95:

5. Anastasia’s Masquerade Dress

The dress Ana wore to the masquerade party was stunning. Custom designed by Monique Lhuillier and the 50 Shades Costume Designer, Shay Cunliffe, it is one of a kind! Women’s Wear Daily shared more details here on how this dress came about.

I found a few options for the dress and the beautiful feathered cape she wears. For the dress, Forever 21 has two different options with a Satin Maxi Dress ($34.90) and this Selfie Leslie Halter Neck Dress ($44.99):

I also found two options for the cape/jacket, the first is the Jayley Luxurious Stripe Faux Fur Jacket ($234) and the second is the SB Tipped Fur Jacket ($107.50):

6. 50 Shades Darker Prize Pack

I’m giving away a 50 Shades Darker Prize Pack complete with masks, tea lights, lip balm and a Large sweatshirt.
