SIMPLE movies are SIMPLY the best! 
For your reviewing pleasure: Midnight in Paris

Here's IMDb's brief synopsis of the movie: A romantic comedy about a family traveling to the French capital for business. The party includes a young engaged couple forced to confront the illusion that a life different from their own is better.

Here's my take: Enjoy the simple shots of the opening scenery of a magical city, before you know it, you're intensely watching the characters develop to try and anticipate where the story line is going. I could not have anticipated the illusionary journey that Woody Allen takes you on, but before you know it (if you're into the arts) you are enjoying Owen Wilson's fantastical nights out on the town and rooting for him to take the risk we all know he wants to take! I love that it was so easy to get into the story and enjoy the ride. The setting speaks for itself, the music moves you along and in the end well lets just say I had a big smile on my face and wanted to watch it again! 

Sidenote: I'm a fan of the entire cast, but it was weird to see Owen and Rachel McAdams at odds when we know them all so well from Wedding Crashers :)

I saw that some people were very (yawn) bored with the Golden Globes, maybe it's because I haven't caught an awards show in a while, but I rather enjoyed seeing all the celebs together in one room dressed to impress and the speeches never fail to ignite some chatter post winning. 

After the show I tuned in to E! with Juliana Rancic to see who she was interviewing and I have to say Claire Danes is back on my radar, I mean she always looks stunning at any event she attends but I just fell in love with her look of the night. She looked classy but with some edge, the red lips, dark eyes and simple pulled up hair and rather comfortable! Not only did she win an award but she truly looked like she was enjoying the night even though she was sans husband, but hey that is awesome to casually admit he's in London partying it up for his brother's bach party! 

I seriously need to tune into her show Homeland because I've heard it's gotten great reviews and she is just uber uber sweet and down to earth in my book.

NARS Spring 2012 items have been released for the public eye, here are some things i'm crushing on. Stay tuned...will purchase, apply and share what I discover!
Heyyyooo I've been absent from my blog for a week because of busy-ness at worky-ness, but that doesn't mean I wasn't thinking about what to blog about!

So my favorite new bath and body item that I received in my stocking this christmas and I've already re-stocked my supply so I don't run out... What is it you ask? It's a little item called the SPONGEABLES!
My favorite scent so far is the lavendar. I love it because it really exfoliates your skin to make it soft and clean. There are two sides, one is less abrasive than the other and the soap is in the sponge! It last for about 20+ washes and you just feel amazing after a hot shower, exfoliating your skin then follow up with applying body lotion. Right now it's buy 2 get 1 free on! STOCK UP!

Another reason Zooey is my fave! Good to know some celebrities in hollywood have a budget and spend their own money. Inspiring.

Just read the January issue of Self Magazine and the content is great! Pretty much read it cover to cover.
I love Jillian Michaels and her workout DVDs, in this issue they have 8 moves you can do with your own body weight for 1 minute each, 2 sets and it's supposed to be very effective which I totally believe.

Lets see if I can manage to fit this in at least ONCE a week. I mean come on, it's only 16 minutes out of my day!

Kicking off 2012 with some inspiration! 
Today, In honor of my 1 year wedding anniversary I'm wearing my silver sparkly TOMS that I wore at our reception when my feet could not be in heels anymore.

I sat on my couch reading the first chapter nearly crying and being inspired by Blake Mycoskie's "Start Something that Matters" book. I highly recommend this book for anyone who's looking for that next step in life and as he says
