I've Just Seen A Face

Hi! I'm sorry it's been more than a week, that's just crazy. But I feel like this is a pretty good post to make up for it. Forgive me please :)

Last night we FINALLYFINALLYFINALLY saw Across the Universe. And let me emphasize the 'finally' because we are obsesive beatlemania girls still and we've been waiting for this movie to finally come out for about six months. it was AMAZING. we really had low expectations because our hopes were so high, but it exceded all hopes and expectations.

As if the beatles music and plot weren't good enough... let's throw Jim Sturgess in the mix. He has to be one of the most beautiful people to walk the planet. And his accent. And his poetic thoughts. Gah, i think I died a little bit when the movie was over and realized he wasn't forever haha. Also, Evan Rachel Wood wasn't nearly as creepy as I remembered her to be. Which I was greatful for, she is such a great actress and was perfect for the part.

However, it was kind of long and I feel like some of the acid scenes could have been cut out. They were entertaining, but a bit excessive and kind of creepy.

I would also definitely recommend the soundtrack, which I am going to buy today when Best Buy opens precisely at noon. I have been listening to Jim Sturgess' beautiful voice sing I've Just Seen A Face on repeat for all the hours I've been awake since I got home last night. Swoooooon.

In other goodlookin dudes news.... I went to a John Edwards rally on Friday night and that dude is rockin. That's all I have to say. He definitely has my support for the 08 election.

Shopping news. WOOO. I bought this dress yesterday at Forever 21... and it's exactly what I've been wanting since I saw the Nanny Diaries. It will look very cute with slouchy boots and a cute jacket! I'm excited to wear it this week. Forever 21 is really the place to go for cute dresses because they're very cute and very cheap. And they have this newish line thing called Heritage 1981 with a lot of vintagey but not too vintagey clothes. Go check it out.

Also!!!! I FOUND THESE AT URBAN OUTFITTERS. oh my goodness, I was so freakin excited. I've wanted brass knuckles since (you're really going to laugh and I could probably get beat up regardless of the fact that I have brass knuckles for saying this but...) I saw Hilary Duff wearing them in the Why Not music video that came out circa the Lizzie McGuire movie. That was like 5 years ago, and I finally found some and I'm so stoked.

Also, my Cobra Snake tshirt came, it was blue. Not my first choice, but much better than orange, let me tell ya. And the stickers are uh maze ing.

But that's all because I have no money left to go out of the house anymore. Except to buy the soundtrack of course.... :)

An Empty Room Can Be So Loud

Hey. Wow. Sorry, that didn't seem like a week at all. Well i mean it did because school makes everything go by slower, but dang. Homework and work and having a life. This school thing sucks.

Anyway.... I forgot to write one of my articles for Journalism this week, when asked why I replied "...It's fashion week."

Usually I like more reserved and classy stuff, but this season I'm really feeling the rockstar vibe, and I loved the bright colors. Here are some of my favorites:

Anna Sui


Betsey Johnson

I haven't really had a chance to look through everything like I've wanted to yet. But maybe this weekend I will.

P.S. Today I ordered my cobra snake tshirttttt :] i'm ecstatic. they're rockin this time. the only downside is that i couldn't chose what color I wanted, so of course I'll probably end up with orange or something.

Annnnd I bought the Jonas Brothers cd (go ahead and scoff), because I'm going to see them when they come with Hannah Montana (i have a little sister.... yeah. that's why i'm going. not like i still watch disney channel or anything.) and i'm not going to lie, i'm really excited. And the CD is pretty catchy. SOS is still my favorite, but they're like the hanson of the future, and i still love me some mmmbop.

well. i guess that's it for now. i'll try to start writing more but honestly i keep forgetting after school! :[

Oh!! Also! I saw Arctic Monkeys last tuesday. and they were amazing and my love for Alex Turner continued!

Me Likey.

Erg... I don't know how a week went by. But school has been intense. I had like five projects and tests this week. blaghhslkjfadhfkja. I dont really have anything to say. Except that I'm in love love love with Elizabeth and James, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen's contemporary new line. I haven't been able to find much of the Row, but from what I can tell, E&J is more "affordable" and real-life fitting.

As we all know, i love plaid.

If i was a 00 I would buy those shorts... now.

pretty pretty.

oh clothes. how i've missed buying you since summer.

ooooh and im also obsessed with my new blackjack

it's fun and small and light and fast and awesome.
if anyone knows how to get music on this thing without actually connecting it to the computer, enlighten me.

All the gold dust in her eyes won't reform into rain

So I found out I am, indeed, supposed to pass on the Rockin' Girl Blogger award on to five other Rockin' Girl Bloggers! So here goes...

1 The Weekly Blogette
2 Plain Jayne
3 Discotheque Confusion
4 C.B.*
5 Fashion Fleur

They are all fabulous in my book :]
(If I tagged you, you get to tag 5 new people that haven't been tagged yet!)


Tonight I went to go see The Nanny Diaries and it was uh-maze-ing. It was about a zillion times better than the book (I assume, because I never actually got that far into the book). It was so funny and happy and sad and everything and it made me kind of want to be a nanny but kind of not. Just go see it.

Also Scarlett Johansson looked great in the movie. Although the fashion was a bit dated (it was filmed more than a year ago and production pushed the release date back a couple times) she still looked cute. The first picture I love because she pulled of plaid correctly, yay. Her boots were great in the second picture. The third outfit, though, is my absolutely favorite. The dress was so pretty and the chucks made it nanny-casual.

The soundtrack was also pretty good. It featured LDN by Lily Allen and Closer by Josh Radin. I am now back into a Josh Radin phase...he is sad and happy at the same time. Fitting for the movie then, eh?

Paix for now :]

P.S. I updated the playlist on the right. Now it doesn't autostart, and it should shuffle so you don't have to listen to the same song every time you visit!

Here's what's on it
-Mary Jane's Last Dance - Tom Petty
-No Cars Go - Arcade Fire
-Everything's Just Wonderful - Lily Allen
-Barely Legal - The Strokes
-Samson - Regina Spektor
-Wicker Chair - Kings of Leon
-Love Hurts - Incubus
-Sad Song - Au Revoir Simone
