So the other day i finally caved and saw eclipse. I was a big fan of the first 2 books but the 3rd and 4th were just ridiculous. Being from Washington its kind of fun to see your state so stereotypically displayed, we don't actually drink Rainer Beer ALL the time. I actually liked the overall feel of the movie, it was very dark and sleek and cool. Acting/Plot wise though, it was very hard to take seriously. I was annoyed that they made Jessica Valedictorian just because Anna Kendrick was nominated for an Oscar. I will say that the fight scenes were really cool, but there should have been more.

And of course we have reached the eternally debatable question, Edward or Jacob. Personally I think that the way the movies are done just makes Bella look like this pathetic weak girl who has an unhealthy attachment to her boyfriend. It wasn't quite so apparent in the books but watching it on screen makes me uncomfortable. The movies also make Edward look like a secretive abstinence-pushing dickhead. so if you were to base it strictly off the movies I would be all for her switching to Jacob. I actually have a friend who asked if that happens in the next movie because it just seems like the next logical step in the plot after this one. But when you are reading the books Edward comes across as this chivalrous protective sweetheart who is a bit stuck in the past, but in no way does he seem pushy or overbearing. Jake looks a lot more immature and unstable. Based off of the books I would say that Bella and Edward are a perfect couple, provided that she makes some OTHER friends. that just leaves Jacob all free for me ;-) (yeah i know, until that weirdo demon baby comes along, sorry for spoilers)

Something else I noticed while watching the movie is that all the pale makeup and light blond hair looks super unnatural on Nikki Reed. she jst looks awkward. I think she is super gorgeous normally. (Maybe not the BEST picture examples, but I was short on time) What do you think? I might be wrong, Nikki or Rosalie?

Summer is finally upon us! The time has long since passed to break out the cut-offs, and get a little daring with that romper you have been wanting to wear, but haven't had the right weather for. Summer is the season of the music festival. Time to let loose and have fun with your style. Nothing should be too serious, take this time off from school and try something new. I absolutely love the Ruffled romper from B.P. (#14) since it comes in ostentatious orange, and a more subdued navy.
Beauty wise, it’s important to keep things light and casual during the summer months, you don’t want to have to worry about messing up your eye makeup when you jump in the pool. I like to keep things simple with lip balm and mascara. Its important to keep those smackers moisturized and well protected from the sun, so I recommend Bobbi Brown’s lip balm with SPF 15 (#4).
So grab a cute pair of shades and your favorite sandals and enjoy the lovely weather, I know that’s what I’ll be doing!

She is so adorable! I recently saw her in my favorite Doctor Who episode, Blink, and she was amazing as always. I didn't realize that she shows up in a ton of my favorite movies without me noticing. After seeing An Education, I noticed she was in Pride and Prejudice too! awesome awesome awesome! it's kind of exciting. can't wait to see Wall Street, with Shia LeBouf, another favorite who she happens to be dating!!!

I spent my fourth of July with family. Since the weather decided to be difficult, we had to cancel plans and just go to a movie. We all agreed (through indifference) on Knight and Day I was pleasantly surprised with this movie. The locations were pretty cool, there were some pretty decent action sequences, and the plot wasn't terrible. Overall I didn't feel like I wasted money. This movie made me realize two things, 1) I want more adventure in my life. 2) I want to learn to drive like a motha fucka. I just got my license (:-D) and i can't wait to learn to drive a manual, eventually i want to be able to do J-turns. I hearby dub this the summer of adventure.
