Happy Birthday Mila!

Happy Birthday to our favorite swan!

Mila Kunis turns 30 today! Hard to believe that she was just a little pre-teen when she started on That 70’s Show.

Friends With Benefits will forever be one of my favorite movies and … takes the credit for getting me started on my career.

In the News…

***** Hey readers! Brace yourself – it was a big news day!

- The UK’s Daily Mail published a photo along with a headline naming the wrong Olsen twin. For most of their early lives (Ages 0-16,) I believed they were identical because they were always dressed alike, but these days I can tell the two of them apart within seconds. You don’t have to see it in their faces to tell who is who, but you will see it in the way that they are dressed. Need some help telling the fashion icons apart?

A Collection Part 24

Happy summer everyone! This collection post revolves around several themes this time around including youth and celebrating gay pride. Last week, we celebrated pride in Seattle and the rainbow flag is still hanging up in nearly every other business around here! Also – since it’s been three months since the last collection post, the pictures have accumulated so when I originally started working on this, I had close to 200 pictures in one post. Not wanting to freeze your computers from loading all of them, I’ve decided to split it. There are 100 pictures in this post and in another week I will post A Collection Part 25. Hopefully this is easier for all of you to see, but you’ll also be getting another one in a week as opposed to waiting three months again!

Have a happy Fourth of July everyone!

2011 People’s Choice Awards

Ashley Tisdale in Farah Angsana

I haven’t rated looks in forever, but I might just start up again. I give this look a 4.7 because I am loving her resort-esque dress even during the winter time. The blend of chartreuse and pink in the dress help bring out her warm skin tone and are really quite complimentary to the entire look itself. She also gets points for doing the boho look without looking homeless hippy.

The Other Woman

Natalie Portman is the actress that everyone is talking about at the end of 2010 for her performance in Black Swan. Next year, she brings us No Strings Attached and The Other Woman – a film reminiscent to Stepmom. Is this the beginning of her downfall? She may be adding more films to her resume in a short period of time, but a rom-com and a film without an original plot line won’t be able to compare to Black Swan. Regardless, I kind of liked watching the trailer above, but for some reason, I have a hard time picturing Natalie as a mom like my reaction to her in Brothers last year.
