1. I’ve been
contemplating my life and experiences during these last few months of living in France. I cannot believe I am leaving in 1 week. Living here has been nothing but wonderful. In spite of the homesickness, the complete change in my dietary habits, and living in another language, I have learned and gained so much strength.
Btw, the photo above is a shot I took while flying in a jet above England. I really need to go back there soon.
2. You learn what you are made of
When you travel.
Oh, and did I tell you I performed as a lead in a french play?? No? Well, I did on December 10th! The above picture is from one of our rehearsals! The title was “T’aime à Nantes,” and it was exhilarating! A comedy musical. I never thought I would be performing in a french play – actually speaking french!! (What an amazing experience.)
My friends and me fooling around at ‘La Maison.’ They’re so awesome :D
3. You should
check out this song written by my talented friend, Nick Lowe (whom I met in France!) The song is called One More Cycle, performed by Nick and Naomi Moco. It’s in English. I can’t wait to hear what Nick and his new group, The Double Club, featuring my other wonderful friend, Catherine LUX, come up with this summer.
What interesting music or travel discoveries have you made?
À plus tard,
1. I love this
Photo of Emma Watson from her movie Ballet Shoes (which is just the cutest little story ever).
I chose to post this photo because if the color palette. The cool green-blue and warm peachy-gold colors really POP. It’s a pleasure when warm and cool colors come together.
2. A Screen cap of Pharrell Williams &
Yuka Uchida in an underground aqueduct in Japan. Taken from the Tokyo Rising documentary. See it here.
3. A view of The
In-Between, from the film, The Lovely Bones - starring Saoirse Ronan (awesome actress, btw - have you seen HANNA??). The cinematography in the film just kills me. So does the plot – but I won’t say more about that.
This is just a small sampling of some of the most captivating images I’ve seen on film. (LOTR, anyone? Peter Jackson?.)
Do you have any favorite scenes from films? What are they??

wrong with being a little selfish for the holidays. So many items on sale… so many things to scratch off of your wish list!

Shoots 170 degree images so you can see everything at once!
2. If you’re like
Me, you prefer giving gifts to your loved ones over receiving them, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t indulge in a little ‘self-gifting’ with one of these listed items,
“Merry Christmas, Self!”
+ When your buying your own gift, you get to skip that awkward feeling you get when your aunt gives you yet another alarm clock-radio for Christmas (true story, lol.)
Brass ID bangle at Need Supply, $24
I recently purchased this ID bracelet. And I’m so happy I did! It’s very dainty, but the golden hue of the brass and the bracelet’s simple design cannot be beat.
Nebula iPad Case (Cotton Canvas x Leather x Wool: lining) at Mclovebuddy, $48
3. The sweetest
Thing about this Ipad case is that it is customizable. I’m not sure if alterations would add to the price. And, if I am honest, I may just buy this iPad case as an envelope clutch.

1. Official video for
Lovett’s Eye of the Storm directed by Christopher Alender, from the soon to be released debut album, Highway Collection.
I love the steampunk look of this video. So awesome.
1. I said it before
And I’ll say it again, Emma Roberts is one to watch on the style front. I’m not surprised she has found her way onto the pages of InStyle’s January 2011 issue*! I called it! Anyway, I’m really interested in watching It’s Kind of a Funny Story, I’m excited to see what she’s done with her character, Noelle.
Check out the gallery for more fashionable looks from this budding starlet. I bet she’ll win an oscar one day… mark my words… sooner or later, she’ll win one.
2. You don’t have to
Take my word for it! Check out the gallery below for more pictures.
Y’see what I mean? She’s fabulous in her casual wear and on her bright nights out!
+ Thanks fabulous-emma.com

1. I rather Love
The jewelry Emma is wearing for these photos – very very nice! I’m loving her large rings. However, the whole look seems a bit confused to me. Inspite of the use of leggings and fur (real or faux – you decide), this shoot feels like spring, like early spring. It doesn’t deliver any of the warm coziness one expects with winter fashion spreads. But hey – Emma is rockin’ the pixie cut!
2. So I feel it’s appropriate
To apologize for my absence. University, exams, yada yada yada – you know the whole deal… I cannot wait for Thanksgiving Break next week. I will be enjoying family time and delivering proper updates!
Will YOU be seeing Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows?????
