Food and Movies

Food and movies go together, that's a fact!
Tomorrow is Valentines Day and a lots of people consider a perfect date to be having a dinner and then going to the movies.

 Food is one of the central themes in life and movies narrate stories about it, so i decided to show you my TOP 1 Movie with/about Food.

My all time favorite movie about food is actually a movie about  love...

Like water for chocolate

The storyline takes place in Mexico during the mexican revolution.
It is a love story between Pedro and Tita who are forbidden to marry each other.
Instead, Tita's mother Elena forces Pedro to marry Tita's older sister, which obviously breaks Tita's heart.

To add insult to injury, Tita's mother forces her to prepare the wedding meal and the cake.
Heartbroken she cries over the cake batter and when the wedding guest eat it, everyone starts to cry for a lost love.

This is where Tita becomes conscious about her power to seduce people around her with her cuisine.
And it remains the only way she and Pedro can continue loving each other without being untrue.

Great story, great feelings, a lot of sensuality and symbolism as well as metaphors mixed with a cuisine to die for. Go and see for yourself!

Coco's Diamonds

For the first time in the Couturiers history,  a micro Web site Inside Chanel was created to share with the world the company's history and the biography of it's founder Gabrielle "Coco" Chanel.
The site shows a timeline which documents Chanel's major landmarks.

Over a short period of time Chanel will be releasing 10 short movies telling the stories about the worlds most legendary and iconic  N° 5 fragrance, diamonds, couture, Marilyn...

I have chosen to show you the story of the Diamonds.
Just take a look...

Fashionable IPhone Cases

Since we girls are re-vamping anything, when it comes to iPhone cases there is no difference. 
We like to dress our best, it is only natural that our Phone does, too, right??

As CoCo once said: Fashion is in the sky, in the streets and has to do with the ideas and the way we live.

My pics are all around $ 35, which one would you pic??

and the buzz of the moment:
Chanel Le Vernis inspired cases every girl i know goes crazy about... even those who don't have iPhones, want to buy ones.. Crazzzyyy

btw. blue satin would be my shade..

Be my Valentine

The day of love and lovers is approaching.
How do you look at the Valentines Day? Is it  encore plus a day to celebrate love? Or just a commercial trap made by florists and candy makers to make you spend even more of your money?
Do you gift your beloved ones big time  just show that you care with a simple gesture?

My all time favorite Valentine gifts must have been a week end trip to Paris, a city where my hubs and i fell in love almost 7 years ago.

The funnies one was the Singstar video game and micros... Normally we use to sing loudly in the shower, with neighbors complaining.
He once said to me Love is music and we are black and white notes...i'll never forget that. We're the perfect match.

If you don't have the time to go on a short trip, there are still lots of ideas for Valentine Day's gift that you could consider:

Chocolate Body painting set... we actually tried this one!!

 and for those who will stay alone this time:
never loose the faith...

For all the lovers out there:
