The Weekend: 5 Things

Caturday

So remember how two days ago I said that I would just do a montly roundup of photos? Well, I’ve got this thing about inconsistency… Actually, I found some extra time to do one of these posts this weekend so I thought I’d just do while it was still relevant and fresh as opposed to waiting till the end of the month. Let’s just say this will vary on a case-by-case basis and call it good.

This past weekend was Caturday at Dolores Park and a few of my co-workers were going so I thought I would just tag along! I wish I loved cats…but let’s just be real here – I’m much more partial to babies and kids than household pets. I figured that if I was going to attend this thing though, I was going to get really into it and the only way to do that was to have someone let me “Simba” their cat. Mission accomplished. Have you ever seen me look this happy?!

The Sisterhood Exists In Real Life

Hands down – this had to be one of the sweetest things I’ve read all week. Growing up, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants was one of my favorite series. I couldn’t always exactly relate to all of the situations that happened in the books or even felt like I resonated with one character, but there were a series of moments that I maybe identified with spread out between the four characters. After the series was turned into a movie and then a sequel, I was ecstatic. The actresses selected were such a good fit, but sometimes that’s all it is – just acting, right? It’s sometimes rare for people that are cast in a movie to stay friends afterwards, but not these 4.

It was revealed this week that Blake Lively made Amber Tamblyn, Alexis Bledel, and America Ferrera the godmothers of her newborn baby. Awwww!

Me and Earl and the Dying Girl

I’ve been obsessed with Bates Motel ever since the show started so when Kevin shared with me this trailer that stars one of the main characters, I was more than just a little excited. This looks like a good one!

I Like Your Style…Kiernan Shipka

It’s the eve of the season premiere of Mad Men’s last season so it only seemed fitting for us to feature the actress on the show who we find to be a style icon. That is none other than Kiernan Shipka. Full disclosure: I’m not a fan of the show. I’ve watched a few episodes with Kevin and friends always ask me if I want to watch an episode with them, but to be honest I’ve never really gotten into it. I can’t believe how long this television series has been airing though. Fans of the show have really watched Kiernan grow up into the lovely teenager she is today and her style has blossomed so we’re very excited to be showcasing it in this post. Just to throw it back we thought we’d intro this post with a photo of a young Kiernan. She’s only 15, but she’s got so much ahead of her!

Snaps for a Snapshot

Who: Suki Waterhouse

Wearing: Reem Acra

Where: Insurgent Premiere

I actually didn’t think that I would love this, but somehow when I was looking at all the other looks from the premiere, I kept coming back to this one. Completely fixated on how pretty it was, but also how imperfect and edgy it is at the same time.

Billion Dollar Bully Slams Yelp

It’s pretty crazy how often I find myself using Yelp. If I’ve never been to a restaurant before, I completely rely on them to give me honest reviews. Since I’ve used it so much, I guess I never realized the backlash that the company has received from other business owners, but it makes sense. In this new documentary, local filmmaker Kaylie Milliken questions Yelp’s business practices and conducts interviews with business owners who feel their businesses have been vastly impacted by the types of reviews that are found on Yelp about them.

I’m actually really interested in watching this. The film is halfway done already.

In Case You Missed It… Zoolander 2

As we all know, our favorite models Derek and Hansel walked the Valentino runway earlier this week and it wasn’t just a random decision. They are, in fact, making a Zoolander sequel and this was the most perfect way for them to reveal the news. Zoolander 2 is slated to be released February 12, 2016. Can you believe that it will have been 15 years since the first movie was released? I’m so curious now about what my 11-year-old self thought about that film.

And what! They also got to meet Anna Wintour. They really went all out for publicity.

Chef Roy Choi Visits Silicon Valley

Chef Roy Choi paid my office a visit the other day to talk about his new project loc’l with Daniel Patterson and to do a Q&A with my employees and it was awesome. For the last couple of years, I’ve been watching videos on him and his work through Doobybrain the blog that I read on a daily basis and each time I feel like I’m learning so so much not only about what good food really looks like, but why food is important and how it drives him in his work. It felt really special to have him in our office and talking about the things that he’s achieved. I both love and hate these kinds of things because a) it makes me wonder what I’m doing with my own life and then b) I leave these things feeling completely inspired! I’m pretty sure my co-worker and I were messaging each other during this whole talk and saying how we wanted to go change the world after this. I felt like I could especially relate to Roy when he talked about what his childhood looked like with regards to food – always a full fridge and just competely hearty meals prepared every night by our moms. S/o to Moms. His vision for just wanting to feed people is badass. I’m looking forward to trying out some of his food the next time I’m down in LA.

Also, hearing that Roy mentored Jon Favreau while filming “Chef” was super cool. I finally watched the film on Netflix a few weeks back and enjoyed it more than I thought I would.

Roy Choi

This has to go down for being one of my favorite pictures of all time because hello- I’m the most awkward person ever. Probably a truth – Roy didn’t even know I was in the picture until after the picture was taken. I’m like five seconds away from just peeking out from behind his right shoulder.

The Hunting Ground

Describing the fallout after her assault, one Harvard student says, “I went to the dean of students’ office and she said, ‘I just want to make sure that you don’t talk to anyone about this.'”

Directed by Kirby Dick, The Hunting Ground tells the story of how major universities across the country are looking the other way when it comes to women getting sexually assaulted on campus to protect their name and their brand. I’m very fortunate to have gone to a school where this wasn’t a huge issue, but that doesn’t mean that it doesn’t happen outside of school. 1 in 4 women will experience sexual assault in their lifetime and you should never tell anyone that this happens to to stay silent. I think this film is going to be very important and I think it sends such a strong message to both universities and other young women that could potentially find themselves in a situation like this. The film will be released February 27th in select cities.

Fifty Shades of Grey: Yeah, We Watched It

Oh yes, you better believe that we caught this movie on opening weekend. Having never read the books and being very curious about the advertisements I’ve been seeing for the film, I just had to see it. So here are my thoughts:

  • The movie didn’t flow as well as I would’ve liked. Everything felt really choppy, but I hear it’s not like this in the books.
  • They made Seattle look gooooooooooood.
  • This is not a movie that you want to take your kids to. I was appalled to see children sitting a couple rows in front of me.
  • Is it just me or did it feel like Jamie and Dakota had absolutely no chemistry together onscreen. I mean it didn’t seem very belivable to me?
  • It’s definitely not as racy as people made it out to me.
  • Why is this version offered in imax?
  • What is it like to see the NC-17 version of this film?
  • The best part of this movie? The soundtrack. Gimme that Ellie Goulding and The Weeknd anyday.

It’s not a masterpiece by any means, but I’m glad I saw it. We got something out of our systems by doing so.
