Friday Movie Night {La Belle Personne}

J'aime les films. J'adore le cinéma.

I love movies.  I adore the cinema.
 With that said, I've decided that every Friday night will be
movie night in this blog. It'll be fun. Trust me. haha
You'll be reading about movies that I've seen, haven't seen (but wish to see), 
and some I couldn't get a copy of on the internet (boo).
But all of them are beautifully-made and inspiring in their own way.
Just the way movies should be.

So first up is the 2008 French film directed by Christophe HonorĂ©
La Belle Personne.
(The Beautiful Person)

I haven't seen this movie yet but I am desperate to get a copy of it.
Does anyone where I can download this?? Tell meeeeee!!!
I think you guys would better understand my obsession to see this film if
you watch the trailer right here.

Done watching? Now time for some movie screencaps!!!!

I would die happy if someone said this to me. For reals.

Frankly, I don't think I'd mind having my hot Italian teacher
stare at me all day. Just as long as he looks like Louis Garrel and wears
a suit all the time. I won't even care if it seems like he doesn't own a comb.

I don't care if you hide me away,
as long as you come find me again.

The Halo Braid

So like I promised (a week ago. Tsk  tsk), I am going to post the video tutorial
where I learned to do the HALO BRAID. It looks very intricate but once
you see the video it's quite simple really. A braid over here and
a twist over there and 50 hairpins later.. Presto! You look like
a German maid who's out to milk her cows or pick wild flowers in the
Swiss Alps. Or you could pretend to be a Grecian goddess. Your choice.

Practice with Suzi from's Halo Hair Updo Tutorial
Pretty simple! :) #Neigborhoodies

Check out how these celebrities donned their halo braids.
 Mary Kate (or is that Ashley?) Olsen going for that I-wore-this-braid-last-night
-and-I-just-woke-up-and-had-to-rush-to-get-to-this-red-carpet-event look.
Point is I wanna look like this. The I Could Care Less Which Way My Hair Is Going look.
But let's face it, no one can work out disheveled better than the Olsen twins.

 Amanda Seyfried donning the halo braid and looking like a good Amish farmer's daughter.
But you ain't foolin' no one, Amanda! Especially not me!
I've seen the movie Chloe and we both know you're only good in...other aspects.
But I still love you. We have the same wide-eyed stare. I can totally relate.

Oh, Sienna Miller. You can do no wrong in my eyes. 
But maybe try putting a little more color on your lips. You look
like you've seen a ghost. Speaking of ghosts, how are you? Watcha doin' nowadays?
Any movies coming up? I miss you...

Looking For Alaska

So I've finally finished reading the book Looking For Alaska by John Green (actually it was 3 weeks ago but I was too lazy to blog about it). I decided that instead of me writing a 500-word essay about how wonderful and thought-provoking this book is and how I highly recommend it to all who love a good read, I'd just post one of my favorite lines from the book.
  I wanted so badly to lie down next to her on the couch, to wrap my arms around her and sleep. Not fuck, like in those movies. Not even have sex. Just sleep together in the most innocent sense of the phrase. But I lacked the courage and she had a boyfriend and I was gawky and she was gorgeous and I was hopelessly boring and she was endlessly fascinating. So I walked back to my room and collapsed on the bottom bunk, thinking that if people were rain, I was drizzle and she was hurricane.”

The Girl With Flowers In Her Hair

 Found this black tulle skirt during a recent trip to the thrift store.
I'm not even sure whether I'm ever gonna wear this thing anywhere besides
the creepy back lot of our house. But it was love at first sight and I knew I just
had to have it (that or it could've been the really really cheap price). 
Either ways I still think it was l'amour. Cheap l'amour. haha!

Wish I didn't look like such an awkward freak in most of the pictures?
Well honey, that makes two of us. I was resisting the urge to skip and twirl and do pirouettes.
The adult in me (scoff) was telling kid me (yeyy) to behave and pose like 
Frida Kahlo (without the unibrow). But the skirt. The skirt made me do it.

I look like a 12 year old kid who was pretty pissed off because
her ballet recital didn't go as planned and she wasn't chosen to play the swan queen.

Manic Monday 04162012

I did not sleep until 3am because I had a Flight of The Conchords 
Song Marathon all by myself. It's impossible to only listen to 
one song. You've got to have a marathon!
I love these guys. How they write their genius songs, I will never know...

Why can't a heterosexual guy tell a heterosexual guy
that he thinks his booty is fly??

Had the most amazing Monday!! I found me a cheap vintage-y girly bicycle!! Just like the one I wanted on my Birthday Wishlist. It's not pink but that could easily be fixed. Going to pick up my new baby tomorrow!! Wonder what name I'm going to give it :)

The Dreamers

I like people who can teach me something about ”the world”. People who tell me stories about their childhood. People who talk about their favourite films and books and fictional characters. Dreamers and friendly people. People in touch with their inner child. Idealists. People who don’t complain too much. People who don't take themselves too serious. These are the people I like.

Cut Off Crop Top

I know what you're thinking, "Not another midrib baring outfit!!"
 But ayayay chicas, I just had to.
When the heat comes on, the clothes come off... or cut off in this case.
Saw this outfit and I knew I just had to jump in on the crop top bandwagon.
You can cut off a singlet and pair it with a high waist skirt! Perfect for ze summer.
 Felt a little artsy fartsy so I decided to dab on some beautiful technicolored English roses.
A pretty pop of color in the pictures. Makes me feel all girly and summer-y and spring-y.
And because dammit when this girl wants flowers, she gets her darn flowers!
Even if it's just the digital e-flower kind you can easily find on google.. haha!
 In other news, I finally learned how to download e-books on the internet... 
What?! Stop judging me!!
I'm not good with this downloading business, okay? It's a miracle I even run a blog.
Now on to the news.... So I went a little crazy downloading every book I've ever wanted to read
but didn't have the pesos to spend or couldn't find it in the local bookstores. 
So I decided to list 'em all and let you guys in on my summer reads.

1. Looking For Alaska - John Green
2. Fault In Our Stars - John Green
3. The Child Thief - Brom
4. The Book Thief - Markus Zusak
5. The Perks of Being A Wallflower - Stephen Chobsky
6. Thirteen Reasons Why - Jay Asher
7. Night - Elie Wiesel
8. Hush, Hush - Becca Fitzpatrick
9. Wicked - Gregory Maguire
10. Perfect Chemistry (Series, 3 books) - Simon Elkeles
11. The Uglies (Series) - Scott Westerfield

The list doesn't stop there. I'm still looking for more e-books I can get my greedy hands on.
If you guys have a few books you'd recommend I read please let me know :)
You can see the my "Current Read" on the top of my sidebar. I'll be giving my reviews in my future posts. Hopefully I get to read everything on the list by the end of the summer.
