Today is the final day for Canadians to enter my Essie Resort 2015 Collection Giveaway!
If you haven’t already entered, there’s still time. It officially ends tonight at 11:59 pm EDT.
I’ll be randomly picking a winner and announcing it on here and some of my social media on either this Saturday or Sunday.
Also, if you’re a regular reader, you’ll have noticed this week, there have been fewer blog posts than the usual five. Don’t worry – everything’s great on my side of the pond, and a new post is coming soon. It’s just been an extra-busy week after work with lots of personal commitments and projects, but I’ll be carving out some time to plan new posts that will go live on here soon. TGIF! 🙂
Follow me on social media, especially Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook because I tend to be very active on there and share something daily, even when a blog post isn’t published.
Haha, those who followed me on Twitter, Facebook, and Google+ knew that not long ago, I like piña coladas, and getting caught in the rain! I’m not much into health food. I am into champagne! Hehe, yeah one of my best friends and I danced our hearts out to that song a few days ago. He and I always have the best time together! I’ve been blasting that song and looping it over and over…and “planning our escape”. 😉
Speaking about music, I found out a couple of days ago that Lana Del Rey has a new song called Life Is Beautiful, and while I didn’t see it listed on the official movie soundtrack for The Age of Adaline, it’s supposed to be part of that film.
I can’t wait to hear the whole song (couldn’t find it for sale on iTunes yet) because the snippet of it that I heard gave me goosebumps. (Click here to hear the song teaser.)
Lana Del Rey is my favourite musical artist because of her haunting-yet-soothing voice and romantic melancholic themes. Her songs speak to my soul. You may remember this blog post that I dedicated to her back in 2012.
I’m also planning to watch The Age of Adaline this weekend because while the premise of the movie isn’t new, I still think it has the potential to be really touching.
After surviving a car accident, a young woman magically stops aging. Of course, that poses problems when her daughter and romantic partners in her life go through the natural aging process. Adaline needs to always be on the move, and she can’t have long-lasting fulfilling relationships with potential lovers because of her unusual secret.
Based on The Age of Adaline trailer, I have a feeling that the movie will illustrate how love isn’t just something worth living for, but something that’s worth dying for. (I obviously haven’t been the movie yet, so there are no spoilers here, but I’m going to predict that Adaline will somehow grow old and die for the love of her life.)
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend ahead and have fun things planned! 🙂
The movie sounds like it’s going to be very interesting!

I ended up seeing The Age of Adaline, and although I found it enjoyable, it was disappointing because there are so many instances when you have to just ‘let it go’ when something highly unlikely happens. The premise of the story was gold, but I wish that they fleshed out the characters more and made the ending more believable. All that being said, I would watch it again, but only when it comes out on DVD.
I can’t wait to see the movie either. since the first trailer on TV, it’s all me and my Mother can talk about. Let us know what you think after you see it.
Did you end up seeing the movie yet? I saw it, and I liked it, but there were lots of holes in the plot, so I couldn’t really get ‘into’ the movie. There are so many instances where you’ll think, “Oh c’mon! That would never happen!” or “That wouldn’t work!” The ending was so strange. Not trying to be a Debbie Downer, but I had such high expectations for the film, and I felt a bit disappointed. 🙁
