Monday Must Haves: May 2, 2016
Happy Monday, friends! I hope you guys had an awesome weekend! It's just a really busy week here at MWM HQ, with lots of Etsy orders going out, my birthday coming up next week, and some really exciting projects in the works that I can't wait to share with you guys! This week is awesome because there's three things to celebrate!
1. Mother's Day is Sunday!
2. Star Wars Day is Wednesday!
3. Cinco de Mayo is Thursday! ALL THE TACOS!!!
So this week's Monday Must Haves all have to do with those three very important things!
I feel like this is far too obvious, but if you're not following Star Wars on Twitter or Instagram with Star Wars Day coming up this week, you're doing life wrong. Not only do they post really awesome behind the scenes pictures of movies, but on their Instagram you could be featured on one of their #FanFriday pictures. Let's be honest here for a second, that's ultimate goals, besides actually being in a Star Wars movie.
Follow Star Wars:
If you're looking for something to wear for Star Wars day, or Revenge of the Fifth, you have to check out the Tee-Public Shop of Honorary Android! Ryan is great at making creative and funny designs that are perfect for going to see Kylo Ren at Hollywood Studios, or just hanging out on the Hub Grass at Magic Kingdom. My absolute favorite shirt is his YAS Queen Shirt with Captain Phasma on it!
You can follow Ryan and buy awesome things:

One thing I've been loving the past few weeks is my Real Techniques Bold Metals 201 Brush. Why do I love it so much? Partly because it's beautiful! And partly because I can be really precise about crease colors and blending. I've been loving using this with just a little bit of black shadow on the outer corner of my eye and into the crease of the mobile lid, and just getting the perfect blend!
This week's music must have isn't just one for this week, but one for life, because the Star Wars scores are so good! John Williams is just a genius on so many levels. A few weeks ago I discovered that the time meter on Spotify was actually a lightsaber, and YOU COULD CHANGE WHICH ONE IT WAS! Obviously mine is Darth Vader's. (Yeah, I align myself with the Dark Side.)
When Brave came out my mom and I went to go see it, and now we go see Merida at Magic Kingdom a lot! So when I found this video from Pixar I knew it was perfect for my mom on Mother's Day!
If you're like me, Cinco de Mayo is the perfect excuse to eat as many tacos as you can. Usually that's about five. But where am I getting these tacos? There's only one place I'm going on Cinco de Mayo and that's Tijuana Flats! Why? Because it's delicious and usually pretty quick.
Where ever you choose to celebrate Cinco de Mayo, please don't drive drunk. Get an Uber or call a friend!
Well friends, that's it for this week's Monday Must Haves! If you have anything you think I should try or if you've tried something on this list, let me know in the comments! Also let me know if you align yourself with the Dark Side or the Light Side of the Force!
