Film Forum: Dystopian Love Triangle

One of my all-time favorites, and a totally underrated movie, is Never Let Me Go. Many people have heard of the book by Kazuo Ishiguro, but I haven’t met very many who have seen the movie. I promise, if you give it a fair chance, you won’t be disappointed. I happen to love sci-fi (it takes place in an alternate reality, not outer space, I promise) and what girl doesn’t like her romance, so this movie was the perfect combination for me. Also, you will be blown away by the acting of Andrew Garfield, Carey Mulligan, and Keira Knightley. It’s impossible to make a top ten or even a top twenty list of favorite movies, but this one is right up there with the classics.

White Hot Summer

I am loving all of the white sandals this summer. White is such a versatile color, especially for shoes, but it gets dirty easily. With leather or suede, make sure to spray them with protector before wearing (as with any new leather/suede shoes), otherwise just make sure to check the weather report before wearing your white shoes. The last thing you want is to get caught in the rain and get your brand new shoes all muddy. My perfect pairing for this summer: white shoes, white jeans, chambray shirt, and bright red lips.

Champagne and Ponies

This weekend, I am going to the Veuve Cliquot Polo Classic on Liberty State Park. I will attend absolutely any event where I can drink champagne. Plus, it will be a fun excuse to put on a summery dress and watch celebrities… I mean, sports. Last year, I went for the first time, and I have to admit that the polo was really fun to watch. Each player rides three or four separate horses each during the match. As long as they treat the animals well, then I approve. Here’s what I’m wearing.

Two things… Weekend Tea

My mom told me I should call this blog “Two Things”, because whenever I call her I always have two things to say. Never one or three, always just two. So, I thought it would be appropriate to start by sharing two things.

First thing… I recently started a new job and I travel during the week. While the traveling may hinder my ability to have anything interesting to report about during the week (unless you are interested in PowerPoint decks), my weekends are free to play, shop, travel, bake, and have lots of other adventures.

And second thing… tea! I was recently watching my idol Andy Cohen on Bravo and he kept talking about “spilling the tea,” meaning sharing gossip. Or in my case, sharing any happenings in my life. So I thought I would use this as my outlet for spilling my weekend tea with you. Plus, I just love tea and all things tea-related (like green tea ice cream and cute mugs).

Enjoy! xx WT
