FILM WEDNESDAY: The Way Way Back

I’ve got to admit that when I sat down to watch this film for the very first time I thought it was gonna be some lame, stupid-jokes-packed, typical American comedy, with the same old cliché story line about an awkward boy who falls in love with a hot girl and defies all odds by finally winning her heart in the end of the story.

I was surprised to find that it is nothing like that at all.

This film is actually extremely sensitive, and portrays some very difficult life situations involving especially family issues that most of us will go through at some point in life or are going through already. It’s very different from other coming of age films, and so, so sweet. I don’t know why but it really moved me.

Duncan, the main character, does not get better because of a girl, like most teenage protagonists tend to be portrayed doing in basically 99% of films nowadays. He gets better because of his new and amazing group of friends, who help him finally step out of his comfort zone and do something completely different and much more rewarding than just moping around with his time

Watch it. Seriously. You’ll find it endearing, I promise.

OUTFIT MONDAY: Alessandra Ambrósio

Let’s celebrate my country for no reason by going with a Brazilian fashion icon today, the model, Alessandra Ambrósio. Although I do find her a bit too skinny (actually, that’s just me being nice, SHE IS SO FREAKIN SKINNY IT’S UNHEALTHY EAT WOMAN), I love her outfits and I think she has a beautiful, exotic look. Check out some things I found:

This is a very cute summer look, and in fact here in Brazil it is what pretty much every girl wears in the scorching hot days of December, January and carnavalesque February.

Love those boots and I always dig that shade of blue of her shirt on anyone, although I do think it looks great on brunettes especially.

Those pants are AWESOME. Loved this look; simple, yet stylish as hell.

First, CUTE BABY. Second, love the denim dress. It looks comfy without losing the pretty-factor. The scarf breaks the blueness a bit, which is a nice contrast, and matches the sandals.

Lastly, this more autumny look is perfect for the current weather here in São Paulo. Loved the boots, and the leather jacket looks really badass.

That’s it guys, BYE!!!!

FILM WEDNESDAY: Despicable Me

IMG-20150413-WA0011

So I saw this post here today and found it absolutely hilarious because it sums up my architecture life perfectly. This major is driving me completely insane, and I don’t even want to know how much of my soul will be gone by the time this nightmare is over and I finally graduate.

Anyway, that’s why I decided to talk about Despicable Me today! This movie is really cute and funny, and I love all the characters! Also, I wish I had a freakin’ minion.

Here are some of my favorite bits:

MINIOOOONSSSSSS <3

AGNESSSSS <3 <3 <3

GIRLS PRANKING GRUUUUU <3

GRUUUUUUU <3

Haha yeah, I love them. Check out the trailers of the first and second movies:

BAH!

OUTFIT MONDAY: Bee Costume

So this weekend (well, really it was Thursday the 30th of April, but considering it was a holiday it was basically a weekend to me already), I had a costume party, and after careful consideration (I decided to go on the day of so I had an hour to pick a costume at the first crappy store I found), I decided to go as a bee. I bought striped black and yellow tights, yellow overalls and little antlers, and then put those together with a black shirt and a cute yellow skirt I already had at home, along with my friend’s borrowed black boots.

I think it looked nice, so I’ll share it with you guys here :)

MUSIC FRIDAY: See You Again by Wiz Khalifa ft. Charlie Puth

This song made me very emotional. I thought it was a very delicate and sensible homage to Paul Walker, who died in 2013 in a ridiculous and unfortunate car accident, leaving behind a daughter and his close friends, Vin Diesel and Tyrese Gibson.

I thought the music video was lovely, too.

FILM WEDNESDAY: Freaky Friday

I used to loveeee this film when I was a kid, and still very much enjoy it. It’s crazy to see how different Lindsay Lohan is today, and where drug-use has taken her.

Anyway, for those who don’t know this film is basically about a mother and daughter who will not stop fighting if their lives depend on it. Everything changes when they visit a Chinese restaurant and an old Chinese lady gives them fortune cookies that cause them to switch bodies. That’s when things get interesting, because all of a sudden they are the person they are constantly fighting with, and it is the first time that they are forced to look at things from each other’s point of view.

SUPER COOL RIGHT

Here’s the trailer:

Okay, byeeeeeeee! <3
