Dreamstorm



One thing about me is that I have oodles of cheap jewelry lying around my place...and I mean oodles. For some reason, I just can't rationalize paying a lot for jewelry and I am not sure why that is since jewelry is something you can wear all day, everyday, for the rest of your life. It truly is an investment piece, when you want it to be.

Anyway, I belong to Hautelook.com, where I get tons of great deals (my Rachel Pally clothes for example) and where I also spend a lot of money. But a few weeks back they had the jewelry line by Gorjana come up and I was enthralled by the 60% discounts on everything and the simple, hammered styles. I went for the gold in terms of earrings (am wearing them in my last post), a delicate bracelet and a cross necklace. They all are 18K gold (perfect for my metal allergic skin) and have that raw, Roman-esque feel that I am always going for.

I'm not sure about you guys, but I have always had very vivid dreams. ALWAYS. Without fail, I will wake up and recall one, if not all, of my dreams and my boyfriend always gets an earful.

My dreams can sometimes be quite lucid too. There have been more than enough times that during my dream, I realize it is a dream. I usually only do this when it's a bad or creepy dream and then I use this "power" to wake myself up OR I use it to change the events. But sometimes I can have fun with it too...

For example, last month I had a dream that I was with Jason Bateman in the back of a taxi cab. He seemed like he wanted to kiss me but I realized I had peanut butter (I know, wtf) in my mouth. So I forced my dream to no longer have peanut butter and I also totally lead Mr. Bateman on. It was awesome.

Celebrities are a constant in my dreams...I can't begin to tell you how many have made an appearance. I would like to say every single one haha. Seriously! You name a celeb...they've been in my dream!

Most recently it was Megan Fox....we were friends or we had a mutual friend. Anyway, I spent my dream following her around the town, watching as everyone just stared at how sickeningly gorgeous(and plastic *ahem*) she was. She was nice enough in my dream too but not like THAT friendly...probably how she would really be. That's just a recent example though. Kate Beckinsale was in my dream a few nights ago but I don't recall it too well.

My boyfriend sometimes pops up and when he does, he is the biggest asshole on the face of the damn planet. I have no idea why...he is the sweetest most easy-going man I have ever met, yet in my dreams...BIG TIME JERK. We call him Dream Mike and you know he's an ass (though last dream he was in, he was actually the opposite...maybe Dream Mike is growing up?).

Then there are the reoccuring dreams that happen almost every night, ad nauseum:

* My teeth are falling out. Common, I know, but seriously it is so realistic and I can actually feel them falling out. Last week, I had one loose tooth that I pulled on and then my entire JAW fell out.

* I'm in an elevator. And it's free-falling. Yup. Anytime I get in an elevator in my dream, I know what's up (or down...tee hee). DEATH! Actually, I never die and when the elevator smashes against the ground with me in it, my dream either ends or it's not really that bad of an impact. I have falling elevator dreams about once a week. I'm suprised real elevators don't scare me!

*I'm in a plane...guess what? It's crashing! Falls right out of the sky. Yeah, this happens so often in my dreams I have been known - in my dream - to say, "it's OK I've been through this before."

*Also, anytime I see a plane take off in my dream, it crashes. Always. I'll be walking down the street, I see a plane in the sky and then BLAM! Into the earth it goes.

*I'm inside a very, very tall building. It's windy and the whole building sways back and forth...somehow, I fall off the balcony or out a window and fall to my death. I am constantly falling off of very high buildings *shudder* NOTE: I have a problem now with going inside very tall buildings...

*I'm swimming in murky deep water. Sometimes I am stuck underwater, I can't see anything and something is touching my leg. Weird shapes are coming out of the dark. Yup, I blame these dreams on having grown up on a boat.

*The classic: someone is after me, trying to kill me. I either try and run but I can't (legs are too slow....makes me wonder, can I even run if the situation arises in real life?), or I can't scream (ditto...can I scream if needed?). Or it's just the run-of-the-mill hide N seek in a town or house while some person or a secret organization is trying to off me. This happens to me way too often - I question my sanity.

*The "I have somewhere special to be and I forgot all of my makeup or clothes" - ack, how vain of me. But yeah, in my dreams I often NEED to be wearing makeup but I can't put it on properly or something like that and it turns into the biggest freakin' deal.

So that's pretty much my dream schedule for the week/month. Do I dream anything happy? Well the making out with celebrities thing is pretty cool. I get to travel to weird strange places that only exist in my dreams. And my dogs (who are dead) Ellie and Duke make routine appearances...it's always nice to see them (and when I do, it's always "See, I knew you didn't die!"

Anyone else have any of these crazy dreams? What do you dream about?

Happy Friday everyone...and...SWEET DREAMS!

I get really crazy dreams. Usually flashback type deals of childhood, and more recently for some reason, being in hospital.

I love love love that dress on you.

FJ said...

Oh yes I get some crazy dreams and I get the teeth falling out one alot! It's so vivid that I get out of bed and make sure all my teeth are intact.

Couture Carrie said...

I have a dream definitions book, you can look up almost anything you dream and it will tell you what it means... don't worry we all have crazy dreams :)

Katrina V said...

You have/take great pictures!

Eyeliah SS said...

Ha! I have the teeth (all the time!) and the classic chased dream too. Also dreams where I am trying to orgaize something (clothes to pack, or shelves or something) and the pile keeps getting messier and messier - arg! I should call you about tomorrw... :-)

Anonymous said...

I always have dreams where i get kidnapped or attacked and like you, i can't escape and I'm unable to run. After i get kidnapped i usually always wake myself up because i am so freaked out.

I hate those dreams.

OceanDreams said...

Love your outfit, as always!
The cloudy weather makes your photos look so surreal!

I always dream about snakes or that someone I have loved has died. It always freaks me out. But sometimes I also have peaceful dreams and I cherish those the most!

Marian said...

I think maybe your having dreams about your bf being mean because your afraid he'll be an asshole. Fears pop up really weird even if you don't really know you feared it in the first place.

I always had a dream when I was younger about a werewolf being in my house standing on top of my play oven and roaring at me when I opened the door. Then he would chase me around, as of course as I got older the dream went further along and finally at like 16 I ended up scaring the werewolf. HEHE.

Anthea said...

Oh my oh my! I do have to say I hate those teeth dreams. I think they are to do with stress or change. I think that dreams reflect a lot about what is happening in your life! Scary ! Cute bangles too :)

Pinky said...

I have lucid dreams often -- so awesome!

I also used to have the "someone's chasing me and i try to run but my legs are so heavy i can barely move" dream. I finally made the dreams stop. Last time it happened i realized i was dreaming and then let the chaser catch me. Turns out he saw me drop my wallet and was running to give it back to me. How silly!

Kristin said...

Mine is I'm being forced to walk across a really high bridge but it's only one few inch wide piece. Had it since I was little. No idea what it means. Those boots rock!

Odette said...

Ahh I can totally control my vivid dreams too! I have never had the teeth falling out dream, but I do often end up somewhere naked. It's like I am somewhere and I just so happened to forget my clothes.

The other one I often have is that I am driving and my breaks don't work. Or I am in a plane and it can't take off so it ends up driving to my destination.

Oh and I also have the whole not being able to scream, but another thing is that I can't punch or fight, which I always feel is weird because I know that I can throw a decent punch.

I also write amazing songs in my dreams that I can rarely remember when I wake up!

The teeth and mouth dreams are VERY significant as are the lift going down dreams (nothing to do with health/physical danger though). I'm seriously good at interpreting dreams but I won't give the meaning away here.

What I can tell you is that the being chased dream is partly about running away from the self, most likely because the real self is trying to catch out the self it wants to help out... if that makes sense. What an interesting post.

Amelia said...

I love the print of that dress! The wind in these pictures is really nice.

Usually, I can't remember my dreams, but every so often I have a really vivid one. Usually for me, they're a lot like real life, but a little off.

Annie Spandex said...

Ha! I have vivid dreams too... The other night I dreamt I was in a boat with a clear side, and I was watching these beautiful big sea turtles swimming by, big as Volkswagens! And soo cute.. But then I saw something else and couldn't figure out what it was until it floated by--it was a skeleton! And a lot more floated by--I was horrified!
Love you dress, and what an awesome view! I want a balcony like that..

Neira said...

that dress is so cute! those prints are just calling my name this summer

girlie you have an amazing body! gorgeous!

seo india said...

terrifying outlook!!

tinklestar said...

wow, you and my husband are very similar with these crazy vivid dreams. my husband is always telling me how in his dreams, he is ALWAYS dying, usually being murdered by someone. he always describes how it feels too (knife in his stomach, getting shot through the chest, etc.) for me, i usually dream about cheating on my husband (in real life, i would never do such a thing) and for some reason, i logroll alot. you know, those buffalo-plaid-wearing-lumberjacks-holding-an-ax logrolling. such randomness.

good post!!

The Budget Babe said...

i bought the stuff at GILT today because of YOU! this post is what inspired me. i'd say you were a bad influence as far as spending goes, but it was mad marked down :) can't wait to get it...

One Sweet Day said...

Hey! Wow, in your second picture, you kind of look like Jessica Simpson.. I don't know if you'll take that as a compliment, but I think she is pretty and so are you! :)

Vegas Princess said...

I have really vivid dreams too and in mine my husband is always bad. I am usually with someone else and trying to stay away from him. How odd, to be with a great guy in real life but in your dreams for them to be the complete opposite.
