Gone Girl Movie Review

I didn't know about Gone Girl until I saw a couple of articles about it posted online. But Ben Affleck bores the hell out of me (it's not you Ben, it's me), or so before I watched this movie, and that's the reason why I ignored it at first.

But what made me watch the movie? Peer pressure.


If it weren't for my friends, I wouldn't have discovered this thrilling, captivating, mentally and emotionally challenging story that will make you want to know more about.

The movie was so good it deserved all the recognition they are receiving right now. Gone Girl has been well-accepted both critically and commercially as a matter of fact. Ben Affleck, in the movie, was a natural asshole; Neil Patrick Harris - hopeless romantic / filthy rich, possessive martyr; Emily Ratajkowski - a young, flawless home wrecker; and Kim Dickens a badass investigator - she is the epitome of an older, wiser, real-life cool girl. Wouldn't you agree with me on that?


And Rosamund Pike, my God! **Separate paragraph for RP since I really really like her** I felt like an Amy Dunne in the deepest, darkest compartment of my soul is trying to come out. I was moved by how you portrayed the character, YOU ARE Amy Dunne. You're not a damsel in distress! You are the most stunning, well-organized psychopath, an emotionally unstable, attention-seeking rich kid who is very passionate of the one person who will eventually cheat on you and break your heart and ask for divorce because you lost your cool all those eccentric, sex-driven, perfectly imperfect, happy married life you are trying very hard to show in public and in front of your idealist parents and their fancy way of making you feel down along the whole process. Rosamund Pike you deserve all the nominations and whether you get or not these best actress awards, you are still highly praised by all. We want to see more of you in the future!

I loved the movie so much, I bought it in paper! Gillian Flynn, you are a master storyteller. I truly admire your work. Thank you for being the author of Mr. & Mrs. Dunne's twisted, wicked lives. I still believe it's an open ending. More psychological thrillers please!


 “We weren’t ourselves when we fell in love, and when we became ourselves – surprise! – we were poison. We complete each other in the nastiest, ugliest possible way.” ― Gillian Flynn, Gone Girl

Discover

"There’s so much more to life than finding someone who will want you, or being sad over someone who doesn't. There’s a lot of wonderful time to be spent discovering yourself without hoping someone will fall in love with you along the way, and it doesn't need to be painful or empty." - Emery Allen

Almost

"Almost. It’s a big word for me. I feel it everywhere. Almost home. Almost happy. Almost changed. Almost, but not quite. Not yet. Soon, maybe."

Why you need to own a blazer asap

This topic has been written all over a number of magazine editorials and fashion websites. Still, we tend to sometimes overlook at some high points of why adding a blazer in our wardrobe is essential. I am no professional fashion guru, but these things are based from what I've proven so far. So here are some reminders.

Topping your regular outfit with a blazer can amp up your look.
That is right! Just look at me in this photo looking so rad, posing in front of a Louis Vuitton shop. I seem to look like a legit LV shopper. Lol!



Blazers are versatile.
You can dress it up or down! Wear it at work with a decent blouse and pair it with pencil skirt or slacks. Or go for a more casual look by rolling up the sleeves and pairing it with skinny jeans.



Blazers work on every body type.
Yes ladies, it does! Blazers work magic, length and structure are the key! If you have square shoulders, choose a soft one in an eye-popping color. Wear a blazer that's not too long and not too short if you're petite. And if your problem is your muffin top, wear a structured blazer with details that takes focus off your middle.

CdD Got Talent 2012






Hello guys! If you read my last post you'd probably guess what this is all about. So yesterday I performed with my band "Over the Hill." I sang Rolling in the Deep by Adele. Unfortunately we didn't get the first prize, hence that, everything went well.  
I've performed on stage a hundred times but it is only yesterday that I realized I love it and I want to start a career out of it. Well shall I?


Laters!

First Shoot 2012





Sorry for the poor quality guys. My bf took these photos with just a digital camera, so that explains it.  So I recently modeled some clothes for a local boutique. I have another shoot this Saturday with a new model. I am so looking forward to it! :) See you next time!

The blazer up and close! :) Love its details :)

I should've worn it with high-heels instead of flats though. 


Okay guys if you like this look give some love and hype it on Lookbook! :)
