The Sun-Tailed Spirit: Hollywood’s Obsession

The Sun-Tailed Spirit: Hollywood's Obsession
Gemma / February 22, 2023

They’re the stuff of nightmares, after all. But there’s something about them that just seems to capture the public’s imagination. Maybe it’s the fact that they’re immortal, or maybe it’s because they’re so darn good-looking.

But whatever the reason, vampires are big business these days. Just look at the success of the Twilight franchise. So it should come as no surprise that Hollywood is once again turning to the undead for inspiration.

The latest vampire offering is The Sun-Tailed Spirit, a new film from director David Slade. The movie, which is set in the present day, follows the story of a group of young people who are dealing with the aftermath of a vampire attack.

The film’s stars include Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, and Taylor Lautner. And while the movie is likely to be a hit with Twilight fans, it’s also sure to appeal to those who are looking for something a little different.

The Sun-Tailed Spirit is a unique take on the vampire genre, and it’s sure to be a hit with audiences. So if you’re looking for something a little different this Halloween, be sure to check out The Sun-Tailed Spirit.

It seems that everywhere we look in Hollywood, we are bombarded with images of perfectly sculpted women with long, flowing hair and impossibly sun-kissed skin. It’s no wonder that so many young girls aspire to be just like them.

But what is this obsession with perfectionism really doing to us? Is it healthy to constantly compare ourselves to these unrealistic standards?

The truth is, this level of perfectionism is not only unattainable, but it’s also incredibly unhealthy. Studies have shown that constantly comparing ourselves to others can lead to anxiety, depression, and a host of other mental health issues.

So, next time you find yourself admiring a Hollywood starlet, try to remember that she’s just like you – imperfect and perfectly beautiful.


How to clean your house with sage

I haven’t yet applied this because I generally do it but it is very nice to be reminded about how quickly our work can be done. Unfortunately I don’t seem to have gotten the message through to my family yet so I often come out and have to tidy up after them. One trick I learnt from my Mum was to wipe the shower or bath down every time YOU use it. Even if hubby or kids come after it will have been wiped down at least once a day and so you will have to use much less in the way of muscle power or chemicals. It doesn’t matter what you use to wipe it with – wash cloth, towel or squeegee – anything does the trick which is to stop the build up that eats into the surfaces.

This is a great post! I was re-organizing and cleaning an area in my kitchen yesterday and came across a magazine article I had saved that had this type of info in it. It was a great reminder. Seeing this again this morning means I really need to work on being better about this.

Here’s the motto at our house:

  • If not I, who? If not now, when?
  • Not that is always followed, mind you! But at least it gets you thinking as you walk past the basket of unfolded laundry.
  • If I would remove my husband’s shirts from the dryer promptly – I wouldn’t have the chore of ironing them!

But I often find that I’m changing a diaper or chasing after a toddler when I hear the dryer buzzing – and then when I’m done with the diaper or the chase I have forgotten all about the dryer. And so the clothes sit in the dryer and wrinkle and I have lots of ironing to do.

I do my 15 minute clean up as soon as I get in the door from work. I call it my “daily sweep” on my docket. (both your ideas!) It is pretty amazing how much I can get done in only 15 minutes and how much more I enjoy the rest of the day with those things done first.

I was just thinking about this this morning! And every other morning, when I wake up to dirty dishes in the sink. Maybe it’s a sign …

I was going to leave a comment…. but first I need to go wipe down the peanut butter on my counter top!

I try to do this daily sweep everynight before bed so the house is clean when I get up the next morning – before getting trashed again by th4e hubby, 4 year old and dirty, shedding dog!
