What is there not to love about a family movie? And this, might be one of my favorites.
Why? Simple. In so much ways Ramona resembles to my lovely lil’ sister, Lexie. Just that, plus the message it transmits it’s totally positive: No matter in what situation, we’re always a family.
Oh yes, and that why I love it. Selena Gomez’ breakout role was simple, I had no big expectations for her acting skills on the big screen but she just got incredibly into the character and Joey King delivers one of the most memorable and funniest actings there has ever been, at least in my opinion.
And oh well, Josh Duhamel, total eye candy and Ginnifer Goodwin’s wedding dress is absolutely adorable.
It’s one of those movies you can watch on one of those days that you and your family are terribly tired and in the mood to watch a film that makes you smile. Even if it’s more orientated to young public, parents can have a laugh too. And I know it because mom and dad had watch it and even my mom’s boyfriend and they have enjoyed it so…that’s enough proof.
And as I say goodbye to you, I shall quote Beezus:
“Every princess needs a little sparkle.”
So this Friday, I went out with my friend Monchis. The occasion? Nothing special, we just wanted to see each other. The place? iHop. Why? C’mon what is there not to love about spending hours and hours having breakfast while you talk about a hundred things?
Not only did we talk about what have been going on in the spam of 4 days that we didn’t saw each other, even when we talk every day via Whatsapp and text, but we gossipped, we laughed and we enjoyed a delicious breakfast.
Also, I bumped into my best friend of about that time I was in 4th grade and it was awesome!
My point is, that there’s something about that people in who you trust the most and that you know you can talk with them about anything and everything in the most open way. It’s not the place or what you eat or drink when you’re talking with that person (personally, iHop pancakes or Starbucks coffee are the things I go for).
School, celebs, gossip, fashion, boyas and even other stuff are the things girls talk over. I am a big talker so I’ve noticed that there´s a pattern in my talks with my girl friends: starts with a topic when dropping an observation and relating it with another thing, which leads to something else and I return to the former topic.
Yeah…I know, weird, huh? But hey, I least I get off my chest everything and there’s a sense of more trust when finishing, or is it just me?
Anyway, so run and plan a meet up with your friends, talk about stuff and laugh your heart out!
- Blair: So the bet is still on.
- Chuck: Unless you're prepared to concede.
- Blair: To you? Never.
Here I am, yet again talking about one of those boys who works on movies and that I feel blown away by his beauty.
It is Alex Pettyfer’s turn. To start with, the name. Because you should know I have a problem with the name Alexander/Alex and it kind of makes me fall in love instantly with anyone who has that name. Second, the man is British! Meaning that no matter what, I love to hear his accent.
I have watched every single movie he has been in, except for Magic Mike (but as it has been stated that he is not the only one who spends most of the time shirtless in this movie I should go and see it with my girlfriends as soon as it comes out here) but ever since Stormbreaker he has been one of my celeb crushes.
The dirty blonde and disheveled hair, the eyes, and the muscles, the accent, the way he walks (am I the only one who notices this?) the man is flawless. He has a thing of dating his co-starts, that kindd of made me wish I was an actress staring her break-out movie with him.
The big break-up with Emma Roberts, and then Dianna Agron. I shipped both relationships really, and as for the engagement with Riley, I’m happy, they both look so happy and complete.
Yeah, I might not like the fact that he is with someone else who isn’t me, but I’m not gonna go all psycho, you know?
He has proved beforehand, that he isn’t just a pretty face with a nice body and lovely accent but one of those actors that makes the best of every character that he gets to play and as he says:
“I think you have to be very secure as an actor to escape yourself - to revisit someone’s past, whether you’re portraying another person or creating someone, and then to come back to who you are and not bring those emotions with you.”
So here’s another of my pet peeves.
Is actually really stupid but I swear it drivesme crazy; food was meant to be enjoyed and taking time savouring and seizing every flavor in your mouth is glory.
I am a slow eater, maybe even too slow, but seriously, I like to take time with my food. The taste, the color, the texture, everything is important for me.
But have you noticed that every day is more and more common to find people eating extremely fast? I swear it is insane! It’s like a spreading disease!
I don’t mind waiting for someone to eat as long as I know tey enjoyed their meal.
Why am I sharing this? Recently I saw my dad in a hurry, because he had to go back to the office but he made a space in his agenda to eat with me and my sister, but his hurry was so big he started eating fast. For God’s sake, I went absolutely mad; is not only the chewing and the non-stopping food chopping, is everything!
You all might think I’m insane to think I find this annoying but it’s probably one of my biggest pet peeves.
So next time you’re in a hurry, remember; if you need to eat, you should eat, at your own pace. Why? Because this way you can really enjoy your food and the moment.
Eat slow my friends!
- Jenny: So what's step two?
- Chuck: Get him drunk, take advantage of him. Do women just not get this?
How is it that I haven’t talked about this amazing movie if I saw it last Friday?
Ok, so by far I know I went kind of late, but still, I enjoyed it to the last bit.
The start of Spider-man’s story, his first love and also the meaning behind his eternal fight. Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Rhys Ifans, Denis Leary, Martin Sheen and Sally Field seem acting so easy and fun, even in extreme hard situations as such as the ones Peter constantly finds himself in.
Andrew Garfield, Oh my God, made me want to die. The cutest nerd/geek in History? Yes. He managed to bring Peter Parker just as every Spider-man fan thought of him (me included, even if my judgement is a bit clouded by my major crush on him). His ways, movements, talk, everything seemed to click perfectly. But let’s not forget the main reason that makes him stutter: Gwen Stacy (or Emma Stone for a matter of fact as they are dating and are the cutest couple ever); she not only bring the character of a lovely girl who wants to seem upfront and serious but continous to makes us laugh even in the strangest times (or was it just me?).
Rhys Ifans, oh hell, he is already a great actor, always underrated, but this was maybe the push the world needed to notice his awesomness.
The background story of Peter/Spidey (yeah, I just called him Spidey, sue me), the impossible love, the tragedy and the secrets.
Everything, everything clicked perfectly. And I enjoyed it a lot, a feeling of amazement to be honest.
So thanks, Sony and Marvel for making Andrew Garfield sexier for the women population of the entire world, and to prove us how underrated are some actora and that Emma Stone can actually nail serious roles.
Oh, and thanks for confirming it as a trilogy. I can’t freaking wait.
Today I went shopping and something marvelous happened to me.
As I was roaming through the store, I found a beautiful brown sweater, no price tag…left in there. I really wanted to know how much it cost so I roamed the store looking for any sign of more sweaters like that to actually know the price. I found no other sweaters and obviously, I had no idea of it’s price or if there were more in other colors.
I went in to try the clothes and know if I fit in them, not letting go of the sweater (because I have been looking for a sweater just like it for months) so as I tried them out; the jeans and the sweater, and bam! it fitted perfectly! Just my size.
Really, one of the best feelings ever!
This has been the second time it actually happened to me in my whole life and I have never ever felt happier about finding something in a store. It came totally unexpected and out of nowhere and it made my day (and my shopping spree)!
It only means one thing: This sweater and I, are meant to be.
I really believe that every girl has experienced this feeling at least once in her life, and those who haven’t, well just wait for it, some day it will happen!
So go roaming stores even if you’re not looking for anything in particular and maybe you’ll find one item you are meant to wear and it’ll be great!
- Blair: You are incapable of change.
- Chuck: Seems you know me too well.
From his messy hair, to his lovely Australian accent, he conquered my heart and I guess of many other girls in the worldd. My obsession with him started when I was 11 and I watched 10 Things I Hate About You, as Patrick Verona, no matter what, him acting all hardcore bad boy with a sweet side just hooked me up immediately.
From 10 Things I Hate About You, to A Knight’s Tale, until Brokeback Mountain, going through Casanova and what people consider his most complex character of The Joker in The Dark Knight; he proved over and over that Hollywood is full of underrated talented people who just need the right script and movie and they’ll make it big.
To see him pass in 2008 was emotional, I gotta confess that when I started reading the news I swore it was a rumor and that in any moment he and his rep would call out and say it all had been a misunderstanding or something…but no. To be honest, it was the one and only time I have cried for a celebrity passing away, it gave a whole new meaning to tragedy in the Hollywood world.
Of course, I was impatient to watch The Dark Knight and I did it, 3 times because I couldn’t get enough of it.
I knew he would receive the postume Oscar, and I cried when it was announced, yet again it pains me how people never really appreciated his talent when he was alive rather when he already died.
Finally, let’s remember him by his words:
“I never had money, and I was very happy without it. When I die, my money’s not gonna come with me. My movies will live on - for people to judge what I was as a person. I just want to stay curious.”
Last Wednesday, I was officially 3 months without skipping a meal.
You’ll see, I have been fighting against this disease since I was 11 years old, and until now, I have started the long way to recovery. To be honest is not the first time that I try to get better, but this time I am really in it to do it.
Before, I never thought it would be important, even some things happened pulling me in and making me fall over again.
This year, things have been wonderfully awesome and it has even made me rethink everything, starting with my relation with myself and all this with food.
It all started as a way of control, back then when my parents’ marriage was a mess I knew I couldn’t do anything about it; everything was out of my hands but not the way I ate, and that’s how it started.
From a way of control, it turned out to be a way of self-punishing, and yet again a way of control.
Still is, a way to control myself but now, I feel more confident about it and I think I have learned to control it.
I feel like it has been a long way of growing and knowing myself and my own illness to learn to fight it. Splendid things are happening all around and for the first time, I feel as if I am truly enjoying them and that makes me infinitely happy.
Of course, there have been little people who are fully aware of my illness and this is probably the first time I talk so openly about it, but just so everyone knows, these people have been the ones inspiring me forward to keep getting better (and I suppose they are fully aware of who I am talking about).
I want to thank them for the support, the time they have spent listening me and offering me kind words.
Finally, I want to clear something, this is the longest I have gone without skipping a single meal and I want to reach further.
So here is it, the first step to getting better.
So, I’ve been attacked by the most mean flu ever. My throat aches, I can’t swallow anything without feeling my throaat is tearing apart, I have used tons of Kleenex, I keep sneezing every 2 minutes and my body feel like I can’t grab a hold of anything.
Being sick, as I am today has made me think about the two sides of being sick, like the good side and the bad side.
If we stop and think about it, there are to many pros and cons to it.
The good stuff:
*Being in bed and pajamas all day without being judged
*Being able to wear no makeup without feeling bad because your sickness has already worn you out to think you want to spend 10 minutes doind a simple make-up than staying in bed.
*Being treated like princess aka given food, people doing stuff for you, etc.
*Not being judged for sleeping in
*Endless movie/series watching marathons
*Coffee/Tea all day
*Turning your bed into your private island
*And here’s my favorite: Being sick is an excuse for procrastinating
However, the title of this post says “the two sides of the story” so, there must be bad thing about it, so here we go.
The bad stuff:
*Not being able to hang out with friends
*Pills that look so big that you think you’ll choke
*The constant question that goes like “How are you feeling?”
*The incesant sneezing/coughing
*Not being able to breathe well.
*Not tasting the flavor of food or drinks
*Not being able to drink alcoholic beverages due to the meds
And hum…well, yeah. I find more positive outlook than negative but what the hell, that’s the way I see it.
As far as I’m concerned, I need to shake up this sickness for tomorrow night due to one of my best friend’s party. So here it goes, for sick days in bed!
