Movie Review

Hey girls!! It's been...forever, I know. Life is busy!

I went to see the new movie The Adventures of Tintin with my family the other week, and I'd thought I'd tell you about it. Firstly, Tintin is a series of graphic novels by a man under the pen name Hergé, a French writer and artist. The books are about the adventures of a newspaper reporter, Tintin, and his dog Snowy. I've been reading Tintin since I was about ten and I've read all the books in the series.

Back to the movie--the animation was astonishing. The characters' facial expressions and body movements were so fluent, that for a moment I thought it was live action. The movie was a mix of the Tintin books The Secret of the Unicorn, Red Rackham's Treasure, and The Crab with the Golden Claws, though primarily the first two.

Tintin and his friend Captain Haddock are trying to find the treasure hidden by Sir Francis Haddock, Captain Haddock's ancestor. It was fast-paced, with lots of humor and excitement. There were lots of surprises, and if you've read the books, there were lots of inside jokes and characters that you'll recognize.

It's rated PG for some action scenes, with things such as animated sword/fist fighting and guns, but overall, I wouldn't think it's a big issue for kids. I highly recommend it for either something to do with a friend or with your family.

I am currently in love with some certain items of clothing...I'm not sure if they're exactly "in" right now, but nevertheless, I am drooling over them.

1) TOMS. They're so cute and versatile. I love the red ones especially.

2) This lovely black dress from Old Navy. It's only $20, too!

3) These wedged booties. Need I say more??

4) This adorable J. Crew hoodie. I love the stripes and the black band at the bottom. However, it's way over my price range, so I'll have to wear it in my dreams. :P

5) These mustard colored jeans from Boden. I'm really liking vibrant jeans right now.

Book Review: Seventeen's Ultimate Guide to Style

It's been a long time since I blogged, I know....sorry. I try, I really do, but my life is so crazy 24/7. Anyway, I got Seventeen's Ultimate Guide to Style for Christmas, and I love it. So I thought I'd do a review for you.
Seventeen's Ultimate Guide to Style is a book that is designed to, obviously, guide people in discovering their style(s). There are 6 categories: Girly, Edgy, Boho, Classic, Glam, and Indie. Each section has the staples for that style, how to style those staples, an example of a girl who shows her favorite school, date, party, and casual looks, a celebrity and her best looks, and other examples of perfect looks. Each section also has tips on how to balance out your style that way you don't look too much of one category. At the end, there are also basic accessories you need, and how to find your perfect swimsuits and jeans.
Personally, I loved Seventeen's Ultimate Guide to Style. It really helped me find my style....I found out that I'm a mix of Girly and Classic. The book also provided some inspiration for my daily outfits. Seventeen's Ultimate Guide to Style is a book you should definitely get if you don't have it, it's completely worth the money.
