As fall is in full-swing (despite the 80 degree temps as of late), scarves are beginning to take over my wardrobe. I have about as many scarves as I do necklaces, re: A LOT. Despite this, I feel the need to mix-it-up every now and again. This video has been my pocket ace for awhile now, but I am choosing to share the inspiration!
For me, the modern one loop and the european loop were staples before this gem. Now I favor the celebrity, the magic trick, and the fake knot. In fact, a few girls at work were interested in how I tied my scarf in such a “cool” way last week. Well baby I’m not born with it, it’s Wendy’s Look Book ftw.
If you haven’t seen “Bridesmaids” yet, you need to RUN TO THE THEATER NOW AND SEE IT. It’ll make your abs hurt from laughing so hard. Seriously, it nearly de-throned Moulin Rouge of its coveted title of my “all-time favorite movie of all time”
It’s THAT good.
Like, I NEVER pay to go see movies. I can wait for the netflix or redbox copy in most cases. But not this movie, I’ve paid to see it TWICE. And I have plans to go again next week. It’s THAT good.
See for yourself:
Seriously, RUN TO THE THEATER NOW. FASTER.
Love this tribute to Baz Luhrmann’s films. He is such a phenomenal director–no wonder he’s my favorite!
Did I mention I’m so excited he’s director the Gatsby remake?! Yeah, you probably had no idea.
Hilarious video of funny state stereotypes!
Clever spin on our Minnesota nice rep!
I feel like the internet has been flooded with diy engagement videos lately. The one with the movie theater (the running sequence was just too long for my taste), the one with the bridge in Central Park (turned out to be staged),the flashmob proposal (trendy but not my style), and countless others. Many are shoddily made, some are fake, and most are just too damn schmoopy/dumb (sorry, that’s my cynical side talking)
However, I found one recently that really was adorable and genuine! It definitely seemed to be the cream of the crop, in my opinion anyway (that’s my romantic side kicking in). But judge for yourself! It’s like a mini-film. The end is the actual proposal and I hate to admit that I teared up when he got down on one knee…
Future husband, take note. Don’t make your proposal into a video unless it’s done well.
We’ve been having some wicked weather here in Minneapolis lately. The tornadoes that ripped through the Northside of the city yesterday proved Mother Nature can be a truly terrifying force. My heart goes out to the people affected by such tragedies. Unfortunately, they seem to be all too common lately.
At lunch today our waitress asked us if we’d been affected by the weather. We replied that thankfully we had not been. She proceeded to tell us how exciting she thought it was. She just couldn’t “wait to see” what would happen! We were aghast at her lack of tact and compassion. Ummm, really lady? Horrible, potentially fatal storms are exciting to you? They really get your rocks off? Maybe not the best word choice, Jenny. (She didn’t get much of a tip for this and several other reasons.)
However inconsiderate her comment, I do understanding the awe-inspiring power of weather. Although I wouldn’t call it exciting in that context necessarily, storms can be fascinating and even beautiful at times. There is something inherently, eerily powerful and mesmerizing about storms. A force bigger than yourself is at work and the production is on such an epic scale. I get shivers realizing how small and insignificant I am when faced with forces of nature so big and powerful. Their power is magnificent and terrifying and one that can render all other earthly powers useless. Such a majestic and awesome force commands some manner of respect.
I found this amazing video showing the eruption of the latest volcano in Iceland, called Grimsvotn. The ash and smoke clouds coupled with the lighting (and soundtrack) paint a terrific and majestic vision. Directors and special effects teams could scarcely dream of creating such a fantastic display. Mother Nature puts on a show like I’ve never seen before. The feelings of my insignificance and powerlessness are definitely stirred up by this production. Bravo, Mama Earth. Now be nice and settle down for a bit, would ya?
So cool! I’d love to have this bookshelf!
