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!
