HAPPY STAR WARS DAY!!!

Beep Boop Beep Clothing is an online shop ran by a husband and wife team who design, hand print, and mail out all their orders. Oh, and did I mention they're huge fans of Star Wars? I discovered them on Instagram a couple months ago and instantly became a fan! They provide unique Star Wars mash-up apparel for the whole family with sizes ranging from Small - 3XL for adults, and 3 months - Youth Large for younglings. I was immediately drawn to the REYbel Girl Tee which is inspired by the iconic hot pink Barbie logo. Isn't it darling?

I ordered the tee in a size Small but since I'm typically an X-Small, it is just a tad large on top (I'm 102 pounds and 5'3" for reference). I truly love this 100% cotton top and am so pleased to finally have a Rey shirt in my wardrobe! I paired it with a layered maxi skirt that I have quite literally owned for years! This just goes to show you that sometimes it's worth keeping unique pieces such as these. Who knew I'd be using this skirt ten years later to resemble Rey's scavenger style? I also wore a pair of sparkly gladiator sandals, and a braided headband with tiny pearls intertwined which created a feminine but simple ensemble.

Hallmark Celebrates May 4th With New Itty Bitty Merchandise | Anakin and His Angel

Hallmark is releasing an online exclusive Han Solo in Carbonite Itty Bitty for Star Wars Day, May 4th! This one is similar to the SDCC & NYCC exclusive two-pack only it's a shiny silver instead of grey. Oh, and if you feel you need the Boba Fett Itty Bitty to go along with Solo, he's currently on sale on their website. I was never able to get my hands on the Han and Boba two-pack, so waking up to this news was quite exciting!

Star Wars Rebels S2 Finale: 5 Moments That Made Me Cry

This is very much overdo but I think you'll understand that I needed time to recuperate and gather my thoughts together. The finale of Star Wars Rebels Season 2 caught me off guard and did a number on my emotions. I've watched it three times and with each viewing I've cried, because goodness-gracious my heart is so invested in these characters! Let's take a look at five moments that brought on the waterworks.


Star Wars Rebels S2 Finale: 5 Moments That Made Me Cry | Anakin and His Angel
KANAN LOSES HIS EYESIGHT

This was, without a doubt, the one incident that shocked me the most. My eyes widened as I gasped, cupping my mouth with both hands. I looked over to my husband probably saying what I usually do, "OH MY GOSH!" I genuinely just felt so awful for Kanan and was legitimately scared for his life. Even after all his frustrations with the situation they were in and his worry over Ezra, he continued to have patience and dealt with the unfortunate circumstance like any noble Jedi would. Despite being at such a great disadvantage, he chose to bravely press on and fight back, completely relying on the force and his other senses. The dude is beast! I'm so anxious to see how his story will play out in the third season!

AHSOKA & VADER MEETING/DUEL

I was very tense during Ahsoka and Vader's conversation, not only because I didn't know what was going to happen, but because there's obviously so much history between these two and to see them in the same place again brought back such sweet memories that were now overshadowed by grief and darkness. When their lightsabers finally ignited and that tragically haunting but gorgeous melody began playing, I lost it. Literally. There were way too many emotions involved! Might I add that Ahsoka proved to be a great opponent for Darth Vader? She met his quick reflexes with swift and acrobatic moves. Impressive. MOST impressive.

CHOPPER GUIDES KANAN TO EZRA

If you don't already know, Chopper is my favorite droid. I definitely think he's matured a little and has become more compassionate since The Forgotten Droid episode where he befriended AP-5. I truly felt that he was extraordinarily brave, helpful, and on top of things in the finale. When he guided Kanan to Ezra, my heart melted. I was still crying over previous scenes, and to see that act of kindness was just so overwhelming that I began to sob. Bless that little droid's heart. I'm so proud of him!

"I KNOW! I GOTCHYOU!" | "I WON'T LEAVE YOU."

Both of these scenes, to me, were declarations of commitment from both Kanan and Ahsoka to their Padawan and former Master, respectively. There wasn't much Kanan could do against Darth Vader but he was not going to let go of Ezra who was holding the Sith Holocron that Vader was trying to force pull away. Ahsoka soon interrupted the party and came up from behind Vader, slashing his helmet. Vader called out to Ahsoka and she boldly proclaimed that she wouldn't leave him. We see a quick expression from Anakin underneath the helmet which I believe revealed a brief moment of remembrance of their past. But the feeling/memory was quickly whisked away by the darkness within him and Ahsoka was left with no choice but to fight him once again.

KANAN & EZRA RETURN HOME

No words were needed to convey the emotions of the characters in the stunning conclusion to Season 2. While I loved the ending as a whole, I was specifically moved by the scenes in which the Ghost Crew were reunited with Kanan and Ezra. Their expressions as they saw only two of the three that they were expecting to exit the ship was heartbreaking. Rex and Ezra's shared glance was almost too much, and the way Hera shook her head in disbelief at the sight of her wounded man, and how she gently embraced him, was so touching. Like most people, I am such a fan of their devotion to one another.

I know I'm not the only one who cried! Which scenes got you? Tweet me or leave a comment below!

Skywalker Hair

Skywalker Hair | Anakin And His Angel

There's no doubt that the volume is strong within the Skywalker family. Luxuriant strands of perfect locks, and beachy waves is a prominent feature amongst this crowd. That's not even including the intricate hair styles including the iconic buns that the ladies donned.

It all started with the star-crossed couple, Anakin Skywalker and Padme Amidala. Anakin sported different hairstyles growing up, but once he grew it out no one could deny that ravishing look. His randomly placed mix of curls and waves always looked on point, even after battle which is either quite unrealistic or just plain lucky. You decide. As for Padme, she had the hair of a true Queen. Her long locks were beautiful let down and exquisite when pinned up in unique and eye-catching styles. Each of them had hair with fantastic body that was rich in texture so it's no surprise that the impeccable hair gene passed on to their children and grandchild.

Luke was more of a dirty blonde like his father was when he was a child though it also darkened some as he aged. His hair is clearly much finer than either of his parents but he sported a fantastic loose wave that even the Tatooine winds agreed with. As for Leia, she inherited her mothers long brunette hair with a rhythmic wave. Her hairstyles, though plainer, were also similar and royal in nature. The buns were most definitely in the blood!

Then came along a Smuggler with thick brown hair that was occasionally fluffy and nothing short of effortless. Han was the perfect match for Leia and thus the hair story continued with their son, Ben Solo, who inherited the volume of his grandfather and was needless to say, the fluffiest of them all. He had his helmet to thank for that! Lightsaber battles also seemed to agree with him. Even in the cold, wet snow.

I'm not sure what their secret is but obviously they have more going for them than just the force.

Star Wars Vinylmation Series 6: ROTJ Combo Topper Featuring Princess Leia

Star Wars Vinylmation Series 6: ROTJ Combo Topper Featuring Princess Leia | Anakin And His Angel

Often times we will see special Vinylmation Combo Toppers released to coincide with previously released series. I had originally wondered if we'd see Princess Leia in her Endor gear since Han and Luke were both featured in theirs in the newest Return of the Jedi Series which was just released on April 1st.

The Disney Parks Merchandise Blog just revealed Princess Leia in her Endor Gear as a Combo Topper which will be released next Friday, April 22nd for $24.95. You can expect to find these at the parks and on DisneyStore.com!
