What a week for tabloids like the Daily Mail!
Angelina this and that and that and this, will she have her ovaries removed in due course, wedding to Brad imminent, formula 1 speed type of celebrity support tweets… I mean at some point I had to scroll down, until oblivion it seemed, to find my usual favorite daily-celebs like the “ever-shrinking” Abbey… Give her a break please, the girl is simply trying to make it into “The Posh and Becks” olymp, and as perfectly demonstrated by Posh, you gotta be skin and bones in order to even stand a chance. And it worked for Posh, didn’t it?
Having said all that, the above rant does not mean I don’t think Miss Jolie isn’t heroic, I just find it funny how the gossip columns seem to have very little else going on if they need to “butcher” this story like they did.
I mean don’t they have their hands full with Miley’s on-off engagement, Leanne Rimes’ yoyo effect and the Jessica Simpsons of this world? – I am ranting. I am stopping.
Punk was the keyword for this year’s Met Gala. Presumably you all would list this as your Oscars, am I right? For anyone remotely into the whole fashion thing it would be. Even though I am not against punk per se, admittedly I wasn’t much impressed by this years looks. More so my favourites, dare I say it, were a bit punk reluctant… My fave peeps were, as per usual you might say, but what can I do, they tend to get it right, tout les temps… Carine Roitfeld, Chloe Sevigny and Rooney Mara. Like I said, perhaps not very “punk” however nevertheless ever so fabulous. As a side note I would like to mention I am rather excited Chloe decided to put a turban on her hair, as that’s the one thing I personally would deny her a perfect 10 for looks on.
I’m pretty good when it comes to buying “stuff”, I can go for months wearing the same 3 looks day in, day out and you won’t hear me complain once. I tend to experiment with my man’s clothes, well mainly shirts, jumpers, jackets and t-shirts – thank god there is (currently) no way I can experiment in his jeans , ha! Having said all that every now and again I go on a binge. I literally could buy anything that is attached to a price-tag. Case in point this week. “It” is happening, it’s this time of year, I need to purchase, and boy, once you start looking, there ain’t a website safe from The Schnitzel! To make the whole thing not completely pointless (not if you are counting evolving my look as being extremely important bien sur!), and a definite waste of mula, I shall share found objects of desire with ya’ll today!
Let’s all agree that Minimale Animale is a endlessly spicy brand. No need for more than that, let’s just leave the talking to these images. I Want.
Do you guys watch Modern Family? I do and I love it. Obvo.
One of my friends introduced me to it a few months ago and believe it or not, the series’ comedy gold was not the first thing I noticed while peaking at it for the first time. With the risk of sounding insane and like a beauty-obsessee I have to admit the first thing I noticed was how strange and un-natural Julie Bowen (“Claire”) looks. I couldn’t really put my finger on what exactly I thought was strange but something was definitely “off”.
Was it her extremely thin and at the same time immensely toned body with a rather large set of boobies for her considerably tiny frame? Or perhaps her ironed face and effectively frozen expression which she shares with so many of her her Hollywood colleagues – you know what I mean, the certain way most Hollywoodies laugh for instance, a tell tale sign for botox. I look like that too, when I’m skiing and it’s minus 20 degree celsius!
Also I can’t help but notice her and Gwyneth Paltrow morphing into one – they more and more look like twins!! What’s up with that?
Having said that, whatever Julie has had done, I don’t really care… although after reading this it might not seem so
I think she’s a brilliant Claire and that’s all that matters for my Modern Family.
I am all over MAD MEN all over again!
The people behind it must be geniuses… Mad Men is all about the details, I can’t get over the beautiful, yet subtle transmission the show is making into the 70′s, the clothes (Roger Sterling being on the forefront of fashion with his double breasted Jacket and fashion forward flamboyant / aristocratic style), also the hair, make up and interior are simply spot on! Oh and I am kind of loving Don for being a ladies man again – what is wrong with me??!!
One thing that surprised me a little was Betty’s still got a bit of “extra baggage” to carry, but seeing as these were the go-to products for weight loss in those days… I kind of understand how difficult it may have been yuck in pink!! Read More
