Post-Christmas Blues

Is it just me or did Christmas pass SUPER quickly?! I miss it already! Well, it will soon be 2011 (!!!) so that is something to look forward to. Another thing I am excited for? Making use of my Christmas goodies *cough MY LOUBOUTIN SHOES, green sewing machine, H&M Lanvin t-shirt cough*. Haven't taken any pictures of my presents yet, but there will probably be a few coming soon. For now...


(Late) Merry Christmas!


Another thing. As I have done 2 mediocre reviews of some films I recently saw, you should check out some real ones by my brother. He's gunna be big.

Laters.

Black Swan

Hey there everyone. In my previous post I mentioned how much I wanted to see the new thriller "Black Swan". Well, today I watched it. Alone. My review? I really really liked it. Some of it was hard to watch (I may or may have not covered my glasses on a few occasions), but it was really interesting and the ending was rather sad. I recommend it, but just remember, if you watch it, close your eyes when you can sense that 'something is going to happen' moment. Don't say I didn't warn you! Let me add, I used to do ballet (from the ages of 3-13) and that may have contributed to my liking of this film. The dancing is beautiful, but it makes me cringe big time when she cracks her feet and all that ballet shiznit. That, my friends, is why I am glad I quit ballet when I did. Yes it's beautiful, but I would not be able to endure the pain! I had just started pointe when I quit, which is so much harder than it looks btw, and my feet would be screwed and I wouldn't be able to walk in heels. So, no offense ballet dancers, but I would rather my feet be normally shaped and undamaged. Thanks.





Beyond jealousy right now.

Feel Good Film?

Why hello there. Now, I know I usually get off topic, and yes, this is a fashion blog, but I would like you tell you about a film I recently saw with Mama erin-style. (That nickname sounded better in my head). The film 'Catfish' was called 'the feel good film of Christmas' recently in a review. I disagree BIG TIME. Yes, it was very good and interesting, and I highly recommend it, but it was quite the opposite! I was sitting on the edge of my seat at moments, but towards the end it was actually quite emotional. Not in a 'I can't stop crying right now' sense, like in the beloved 'Notebook' or 'Toy Story 2' (what? oh, come on! I am not alone on that one... right?) RIGHT, anyways, as I was saying... it's not sad in the traditional way, but more in the way that you feel bad for the person. Sorry if that is nonsense, and if I have ruined it for anyone or something, but it was definitely a must-see.


Next on my list?

'Black Swan'


Now, my Christmas 'feel good film', you may ask?


Arguably the best film of all time.


Holy Christmas.

I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas!

Good evening all. Just wanted to show y'all what I bought today in American Apparel. I have recently discovered that there is a lot to buy before even receiving Christmas presents (for me, anyays!). I also wanted to inform you that I am working my way though a 1000 piece jigsaw puzzle of the Hollywood greats. It's quite a party up in my house, as you can tell.

Favourite song at the mo:



See you when it's my Christmas recap post!

Gingerbread men + Glee Christmas Soundtrack = Nirvana

Hey everyone. I am currently in bed, watching Toy Story 3 and knitting. It's nearly the winter holiday which means it's coming up to the most awesome holiday EVER... Christmas!!!! I have been jamming to my new Glee Christmas CD, watching festive films and making gingerbread men. Life at its best, my friends. These are the things that keep me going when it is FREEZING outside. Oh yah, another thing that makes the winter cold bearable? Chunky knits and thermal vests. It's so cold I have considered sewing myself into a thermal vest and leggings. Yes, it's like Antarctica out there, but hey! That means layering - wearing my favourite clothes together! Me likey likey. Now, onto the more important things...


What I am reading:
This new edition of Lola (Issue 11) was off the chain, as per usual. I am pretty certain Lula is my favourite magazine, apart from 'I <3>
Basics, I laaaave it.

What I am listening to:


Nothing to explain really... I am not sure if you knew, but I kiiiinda like Glee. Kinda.


Oh, and my friends are sort of fans...


cough cough...

More Music:

Sleigh Bells - newest love. It's 2 people who perform angry rock that some times reminds me of cheerleading cheers, mixed with guitars and drums, with a little bit of rage and electro tings. Rather amusing, and as we all know, I love the whole cheerleading thang.

Excuse the quality of the sound and try to understand where my liking for them comes from. I am still not sure why I am so fond of them.

And now I have nothing to talk about...

God rest ye merry readers.
