I just finished a lovely book. It's called, "Looking for Mary Gabriel", written by Carole Lawrence. This past year I haven't been able to read much because of a busy schedule, but I'm finally starting to pick up some books again. This was a beautiful book to start with. It tells the story of a woman and her struggles living her life because of a difficult, sad, violent childhood. The novel focuses on two sisters as they move from their troubling past. The novel is written well, and I enjoyed every chapter.

Diane Von Furstenberg makeup for Fall 2008. This is something I would try to recreate on my face. Very pretty.

Random outfit pictures...from a night out with some girlfriends.

I finally had time to see a movie. I chose to see "Milk." I knew the story of Mr. Harvey Milk, and the topic interests me. I know I say this about every movie, but this movie is a must-see. Watching Harvey Milk's struggles, but successes in becoming the first openly gay man elected into office, was nothing but inspirational. In his speeches hope could be found for everyone. Not only did Harvey Milk speak for the gay population of our country, but also for the blacks, asians, and the Muslims. I was very emotionally moved by this, and often found myself teary eyed during the movie. Sean Penn gives a delightful performance as Harvey Milk. If you have not seen this movie yet, GO SEE IT.

Another one of the many holiday outfits I wore to brunch this winter.

Exam week me grumpy, but a little bit of Zooey can brighten anyone's day!

"All I have is my story. In the end, that's all any of us has."
Next movie on my list... "Revolutionary Road."
Have a great day everyone.

No Day But Today

Last night I went to see Adam Pascal and Anthony Rapp in Rent! This was my first time seeing the show, I had only listened to the soundtrack and watched the movie before. I adore the movie, and was skeptical that the show could be better than the movie cast, but the show was so much better. The singing, dancing, acting was all done so very well. I had seats close enough that I could see every emotion on each of the actors' faces. Nothing in the world can beat the feeling live theatre creates and emotes.

These veggie-dyed bracelets are by Calleen Cordero. I think they are so beautiful.

I can see myself sporting a whole wristful of these bracelets with eccentric charms, from Mercedes Sakizar.

I have to see this movie. I am currently in a play with a woman that was born and raised in India. She came to the States as an adult, but has such a passion for India and misses it dearly. She recently went to see Slumdog Millionaire and came back with rave reviews on what a beautiful poignant movie it is. It is the story of an 18-year-old boy from the slums of Mumbai who will change his destiny and find love. My cast mate told me, I must see the movie, just to see the spectacular breathtaking scenery of the Indian backdrop. Here is the trailer.

Sunday Morning

I hope everyone's New Year is going smoothly so far! Mine sure is, things are looking up :) My New Year's Resolution is looking on the brightside and just working hard for all I want and need.

I was worried about this blazer, it's not quite heavy enough to be a coat in cold weather, but too warm to wear a coat over it :/ Luckily, I've had some good fortune with weather and have had quite a bit outfits of it!

This Zimmerman bathingsuit would be nice... ahhh summer :( so far away.

If I Fell

I was reading NYLON and saw a scarf that I thought was lovely. The designer is Isabela Capeto. I knew nothing of the designer, so I looked up previous collections. It was love at first sight. The clothes, makeup, hair, accessories, and runway shows are great. Everything is something easily wearable, and something I can see myself in.

Ahhhhhh how lovely.

Has anyone seen Revolutionary Road?? It has Kate Winslet and Leo in it, that's why I would see it. The first time they are in a movie together since "Titanic." Complete with steamy love scenes and all, but her hubby directs it...I wonder if that's awkward? Have a good week y'all :)
