Star Wars in Our Kitchen

Star Wars in Our Kitchen | Anakin and His Angel

There was a time quite a while ago where I said I didn't think we should have any Star Wars collectibles, utensils, etc. in the kitchen. But then I unexpectedly received some Star Wars themed kitchen items and from then on I slowly picked up a few more pieces here on there. Star Wars definitely isn't as prominent in our kitchen as it is in our living room but I think it works this way. It's kind of like a splash of Star Wars that adds a unique touch to the space and everything really fits in well with the blue, gold and mint color scheme.

The Han Solo and Greedo Salt and Pepper shakers from an older Smuggler's Bounty Subscription Box by Funko have never been used but I think they make a great decoration! However, my Darth Vader mug (which you can order from Her Universe for $14.90) gets used but not in the traditional way. I like to save some mugs for other things besides drinking like holding tea packets. I think it makes for an unexpected and fun way of storing tea and it looks pretty! The Jabba mug is also from Smuggler's Bounty. I use him often so please don't mind the slight tea stains inside the cup and the chip on the handle. He's obviously been well loved.

Speaking of mugs, I own a decent amount of Star Wars mugs and that doesn't even include the glassware, tumblers, children's cups, etc. that fill our cupboards. I figured I'd at least show you a few of them. The C-3PO mug is from a Smuggler's Bounty box, the Rey mug is from the Disney Store and the Darth Vader mug was gifted to my husband. It's stainless steel and self stirring (you know, the Force) and is currently available on Amazon for $24.99. I received the Chewbacca cup for free on the opening night of Solo: A Star Wars Story from Regal Cinemas and the Range Trooper Tumbler was a promotional item from Denny's.

My newest addition is this Wampa Snack Bowl I found on Amazon for $9.93. Lately I've been using it to store either lemons or mandarin oranges. I never keep candy in the house so filling it with something that I use often made the most sense to me.

I own several Star Wars spatulas and I absolutely love the designs and how perfectly they coordinate with the color scheme. You can find this 4-pack on Amazon for $24.99. They are dishwasher safe and heat resistant up to 450°. I've been using them since last Christmas and they get a big thumbs up from me!

Our refrigerator is decorated with various bits some of which include excellent Star Wars magnets both made by talented friends on mine. The Disneyland Porg is by Creations by M while the "It's fake and in Space" magnet is by Squadron Goals.

On top of our refrigerator are many of our larger Funko Pops including every single one from the Smuggler's Bounty boxes that we've kept. My favorite is still Han Solo on the Taun Taun. This was something I began doing last year at some point and I really like the way it looks!

This color scheme, which is probably my favorite throughout our home, continues in the dining room. We have some wall art up and a centerpiece on the table that coordinate but I chose not to feature them today since neither of them are Star Wars related. However, we do have a small shelf up with some Star Wars pieces to tie the rooms together. These items include: a couple of vases, a Taun Taun and Wampa Tiki mug, an AT-AT mug (find it on Amazon for $10.99), a candle, and a Mystery Mini figure of Chief Murumuru (Revenge of the Sith). This may seem like an odd item to display but I recently received him in the latest Smuggler's Bounty box and thought he would look good here with his green and gold armor.

I hope you enjoyed getting a peek into how I decorate one of the rooms in our home. Let me know what you like the most and if you have any questions in a comment below!

Star Wars OOTD: The Phantom Menace | Anakin and His Angel

Today marks 20 years since The Phantom Menace was released in theaters. I was thirteen years old when I saw the movie and I remember feeling that my love for Star Wars had doubled as soon as it ended. I immediately went home and started decorating my room with any Star Wars collectibles that I already had (which mostly consisted of Han Solo, Princess Leia and Darth Vader items) and I began collecting toys and everything else I could get my hands on from the new movie. Believe it or not, before I purchased any posters I taped trading cards to my walls! I still can't believe I did that to this day.

When Star Wars Celebration Chicago came around I asked my friend Nancy to pick this TPM shirt up for me from the Celebration Store. My friend Michael Pasquale designed it and I had to have it! Lucasfilm recognized his incredible Star Wars artwork via Social Media and asked him to be a featured artist at Celebration and create official artwork! I've been a fan of Michael's work for a while and own multiple prints and enamel pins that he's made. Now to have a gorgeous shirt representing the iconic characters from the film in my collection is such a treat! Unfortunately tucking it into my skirt the way I did cut off some of the characters so please look above for the full piece!

Dressing up Star Wars t-shirts is basically one of my specialties. I feel like I kind of took it to the next level with this lovely strand of pearls my Grandma gifted me when I was a little girl. The skirt, heels (which I now own in four colors), and the clutch helped to create an overall chic ensemble which I'm definitely all about. I have an insane amount of Star Wars t-shirts so styling them with different accessories helps with creating whichever vibe I'm feeling on that particular day. Plus, you can never go wrong with pairing a t-shirt and a skirt together!

I was thrilled when I found out I won this Queen Amidala makeup bag that Megan Won designed for a Twitter giveaway. Isn't she talented? Queen Amidala is one of my favorite characters in all of Star Wars. She has the best wardrobe in the galaxy and I would honestly love to have several reasons to change my outfits throughout the day.

How old were you when you saw The Phantom Menace? Did you love it as much I did? Let me know in a comment below.

What I Wore

Qi'ra T-shirt: Hot Topic
Super Stretch Jegging: American Eagle
Born Wedges: Nordstrom (Similar)
Cardigan: Target (Similar)
Bracelet: Gifted (MantraBand)
Headband: H&M (Similar)
Mini Backpack: Loungefly

One of my favorite Star Wars movies to be released since Disney bought Lucasfilm is Solo: A Star Wars Story. To celebrate the one year anniversary of its debut in theaters on May 25th I'm finally styling this Qi'ra t-shirt I picked up several months ago from Hot Topic. It's still available in sizes XS - M for less than $6! So if you like it, I wouldn't hesitate to order it. For reference, I'm wearing an XS. The shirt is made of 100% cotton so it's really comfortable to wear and the print is absolutely stunning!

Star Wars OOTD: Solo A Star Wars Story | Anakin and His Angel

Solo is a film that fills my heart with so much joy and gives me the same feeling I've always experienced when watching the Original Trilogy. It's a wonderful story and I hope we get to see it continued in some form. Qi'ra is a character I became really attached to. I admire her strength, combat skills, and I definitely relate to her feisty ways. I thought this bracelet that reads, "Though she be but little, she is fierce."by MantraBand would be the best accessory to style with the shirt since I feel it represents both of us so perfectly.


Star Wars OOTD: Solo A Star Wars Story | Anakin and His Angel

This cardigan is probably one of the most luxurious cardigans I own and I just really love the way the forest green shade compliments the purple hues on the t-shirt. I tied this ensemble together with a darling floral headband I discovered for a few dollars at H&M, a pair of jeans, wedges and a backpack from Loungefly! If you're curious as to whether or not I actually wore this outfit out, I did! I've worn it to a Birthday party and on a regular day taking my car in to get new break pads. Many of you probably know that I'm all about wearing what you love and what makes you feel good no matter the occasion.

I can't believe it's been a year already since Solo hit theaters. I remember being really excited that it was released in May and seeing it more times than I can remember with my husband and various members of my family. If you love this film as much as I do and would like to see a sequel made, you can participate in the movement to make it happen by using the hashtag #MakeSolo2Happen on Twitter on May 23rd and tagging The Resistance Broadcast!


DIY: Qi'ra's Manicure | Anakin and His Angel

If you haven't seen it, I recreated Qi'ra's manicure in this post late last year.

How do you feel about the movie? Tell me your thoughts and let me know what you think of this outfit in a comment below!

Special thanks to: My mom for stepping in to take these photos for me!
