starlight, star BRIGHT STAR

I finally watched Bright Star. I found it so interesting. Not a movie I immediately loved but I keep finding myself thinking about it. I can only describe it as hauntingly romantic. And also beautiful. My favorite scene: in response to a letter John writes Fanny where he wishes they were butterflies, she turns her bedroom into a butterfly farm. Amazing. This picture doesn't do it justice.

Writing about it makes me want to watch it again. It's one of those movies I think I'll fall for further each time. Here's one more image (beautiful) this one's from rehearsal before filming.

Little Feet

Just stumbled upon this bib tutorial which is darling but what really grabbed my attention was those sweet little bow shoes. I immediately scouted them out online and two pairs are presently making their way to my doorstep. One pair for Gemma and the other for a sweet girl I'm looking forward to meeting in the near future. Can't wait!

My claim to (Reality TV) fame...

Back in my modeling days I would often see this tall skinny guy with cool style and a star tattooed on his neck. He was working as a stylist at a studio I frequently worked for and one day I met him. I was doing a Lucy shoot and he came over and asked if I would model a few things for his portfolio as he soon would be auditioning for a little show called Project Runway. Fast forward to present: that very same star-tatooed man won last week's challenge on episode 6. Meet Seth Aaron:
And here's a photo from my shoot with him. If Heidi Klum has seen a photo of me can I say I met her too?

My parents are cooler than your parents

We went to a few record stores over the weekend. The bargain bin was good to me. 5 records for $6. Not bad. Time with parents who have good taste in music is pretty cool too.
