Star Wars Week Wrap-up

It’s here, the final day of Star Wars week on SassySweetSF. We’ve decided to leave you with a pic of us wearing our Star Wars shirts (seen in Leigh’s fashion post on Tuesday). We are total nerds and wore them to work yesterday to celebrate the premiere day – twinning! I hope you enjoyed our theme week and that you have a chance to go out and see the movie soon! I’m not seeing it until Christmas Eve with my family (we have a movie night tradition), so no spoilers! But I do have a review (and pics) from Leigh who saw it last night with her husband:

“Definitely worth the 2 hour wait in line [we were first!] and we will be seeing it again. Star Wars fans will not be disappointed with this seventh installment of the franchise.”

Star Wars: Movie Theater Snack

Trail Mix

The time has come. After waiting what seems like forever, Star Wars: The Force Awakens premieres tonight at theaters across the country. And it’s also one of the last Star Wars related posts here on SassySweetSF (see Star Wars makeup, Star Wars fashion and Star Wars pet accessories).

Paying a high price to get those movie tickets can be a damper on the wallet, but purchasing snacks is another feat. Movie theater popcorn is addicting, so obviously that is the one snack that will most likely be purchased (my hubby and I are seeing the movie tonight and share a layered large popcorn – regular, kettle, regular). Candy? Ice cream? Beverages? That’s a whole other story. In today’s post I’m going to share with you my movie theater hack for sneaking in a healthy snack that’s Star Wars themed.


  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate covered raisins (Darth Vader!)
  • 1 cup yogurt covered raisins (or any other yogurt covered goodness you enjoy) (Stormtroopers!)
  • 20 blue M&Ms (light side)
  • 20 green M&Ms (light side/Jedi)
  • 20 red M&Ms (dark side)
  • 1/2 cup almonds (dry roasted, optional)
  • 1/2 cup peanuts (lightly salted, optional)
  • Optional: handful of sunflower seeds

To Prepare:

In a sandwich or larger Ziploc bag, pour in the dark chocolate covered raisins, yogurt raisins, three varieties of M&Ms, almonds, peanuts and sunflower seeds (optional). Zip up the bag and shake it to mix all the ingredients together. Slip it into your purse and you’re set for your sweet and savory treat.

Another thing to remember, is unless you’re really wanting that large Coca Cola with light ice, put a bottle of water in your purse to sneak into the theater.

I hope you truly enjoy Star Wars: The Force Awakens tonight. I know I will! 🙂

What are your favorite snacks to bring into a theater, movie themed or not?




Star Wars: CoverGirl Makeup Collection

Star Wars makeup collection - CoverGirl

It’s almost here…the premiere of Star Wars: The Force Awakens (opening in theaters this Thursday). Leigh and I both share a mutual love of the movies, and decided to pay homage this week by transforming the look of our blog and writing about all things Star Wars! First up, I’m talking about Star Wars inspired makeup.

CoverGirl recently released a limited-edition collection of makeup inspired by Star Wars. The collection includes 6 lipsticks, 3 nail polishes, and 2 mascaras (waterproof and regular in Very Black). The lipstick shades are a little out there for my personal taste, but I could see myself wearing the Nude 70 (last one, below) and maybe the Red 30 (3rd one, below).

Star Wars lipsticks

All three nail polish shades are very wearable and perfect for this time of year in the colors (left to right): Speed of Light 200, Red Revenge 180, and Nemesis 195.

For a little inspiration, Iconic makeup artist and CoverGirl Global Creative Design Director Pat McGrath has created seven intergalactic beauty looks to go with the collection. See all of the looks and the face maps explaining the colors and techniques used for each below. I love the soft neutral palette for the Jedi look – definitely the most wearable of the bunch. But a less theatrical take on the “Droid” or the “Chrome Captain” looks could be fun for New Year’s Eve!








My question is: are you on the light side…or the dark side? I might be a little of both 😉
