Fabulous Tip Of The Day: The Perfect Denim Jacket

In Style UK's fabulous tips for this spring and summer fashion staple:

"1. The fabric: Look beyond classic denim and opt for interesting details. The painted texture of this number gives it a fresh twist. 
2. The fit: Stick to the easy vibe of summer and choose an oversize jacket. Turn up the cuffs for a 2014 update. 
3. The outfit: Pair with slim tailored trousers, a light knit, and a pair of pointy flats. Chic daytime dressing made easy!"
--Taken from In Style, UK edition, April 2014, page 89. 

Denim jackets are a lifesaver on these days when the weather keeps switching from cold to too hot to rainy to going inside with the air condition in set at arctic. It's also easy to throw on a denim jacket over a sundress for an easy work look.

Stay fabulous, readers!

#TwilightForever Concludes

Thank you so much for sharing with me this fantastic day of Twilight love and blogging. It's been a great experience. I'm looking through my stats, and I've had so many page views, yay! I should do this again sometime. There are plenty of YA books with film adaptations, like The Hunger Games and Catching Fire, The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, Divergent, Warm Bodies, The Host, et cetera, and the Vampire Academy movie comes out on DVD in May. This'll be fun.



"...into our perfect piece of forever."

#TwilightForever: Bella’s Strength



Another parallel to mention: Bella started out as the weakest physically, but now she is the strongest, even more so than Emmett, who was previously the strongest Cullen. Her shield is also the strongest of everyone’s powers, and see the importance here: wanting to protect the people she loves has always been her foremost characteristic, and now she can do so on a large scale in a way that is more powerful and potent than any offensive ability.

#TwilightForever: Garrett



Can I just say how utterly fantastic Lee Pace is as Garrett? Another excellent casting of a side character! Honestly, I wish he could have a solo movie because he does such an incredible job. His performance is part of why Breaking Dawn Part 2 is my favorite film of The Twilight Saga, and even for his small screen time he fits in among the Cullens and Denali coven as easily as if he had always been. And the way he looks at Kate – their romance is adorable.


Lee Pace is also wonderful as the elven king Thranduil in The Hobbit movies, and Thranduil was always my favorite character in The Hobbit, so Lee Pace is just all around awesome, I think.

#TwilightForever: Bella’s First Hunt



The scene of Bella hunting the deer is a direct parallel to the opening of the first film. Only this time, Bella is no longer the fragile deer. She is the strong and fierce mountain lion, which is why she chooses the latter as her prey instead.

#TwilightForever: Breaking Dawn Part 2

Thanks for watching the first part of Breaking Dawn with me! The second part begins at 7:00 pm. This final film is my favorite of The Twilight Saga. It truly is.

#TwilightForever: Keeping The Baby



Let’s take a moment to talk about Bella’s immense courage in choosing to keep this baby. The Volturi have set a deadline (emphasis on the dead part) by which she must be turned. This is her one and only chance to have a child, and to Bella, who thought she was giving up children, this miracle is a big deal to her. She feels an instant emotional connection to unborn Renesmee, and losing that would be far more painful than what she suffers having the baby. For Rosalie, this is also her only chance to have a baby, albeit vicariously. Together their alliance and newfound sisterhood prevail when others in the family want to sacrifice the baby to save Bella. This is also another example of Bella standing by her choices with conviction and refusing to be swayed.
