Last night was one of the most fascinating nights I’ve had online in a long time.
It started when someone on Facebook posted a picture of what to me looked like a gold and white dress, saying obviously it was blue and black and she couldn’t understand why people were saying anything else.
What?! It was obviously gold and white! read full story »

After laughing over Woof, Buick’s new ad campaign which aired during the Westminster Dog Show last week, I realized just how fitting it is that I’m part of the Experience Buick team this year.
Take a look at this adorable 30 second commercial:
As you know, I am totally a dog lover. I have been known to let strange dogs use my face for licking, I tear up whenever I see a guide dog and I have thrown myself at K-9 police dogs, only to be told to “please step back.” read full story »

Michael and I are total suckers for a good, sappy sports movie.
Baseball is our preferred sport to cry over — is Field of Dreams not one of the best movies ever?! — but we love rooting for the underdog, and we’re all about teammates bonding.
So, to make it short and sweet, we adored McFarland, USA. read full story »

I remember watching The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel with Michael during an early screening and just grinning through the entire movie. We loved it.
In case you haven’t seen it — which you should — it’s the story of a group of British retirees who get sucked in by ads for the newly-restored Marigold Hotel and decide to move to India, where the standard of living is less expensive and the culture seems exotic and exciting. The accommodations end up being far from luxurious and nothing ends up the way they planned. In many ways, though, it turns out better.
The movie was nominated for a Best Picture Golden Globe and a Best Actress award for Judi Dench, who stars with an amazing cast including Maggie Smith, Bill Nighy and Dev Patel.

I’m thrilled to feature this sponsored post today because I’ve been drooling over the furniture at BoConcept ever since I moved into my first apartment in college. I love the Danish retailer’s contemporary look and clean lines, and can easily picture myself living in that airy space, above, and spending days just reading on that Mezzo couch, with my iced tea on the table.
Unfortunately, though, that gorgeous room already belongs to BoConcept designer Morten Georgsen, who opened up his villa in Spain for the shooting of “The Call,” the first of two exciting new BoConcept films starring Mads Mikkelsen, star of the hit TV series, Hannibal. read full story »

I loved pretty much everything about The Theory of Everything.
The movie, which is nominated for eight Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Actor and Best Actress, tells the amazing story of renowned astrophysicist Stephen Hawking. Diagnosed with Motor Neuron Disease and given a death sentence while pursuing his PhD in physics at Cambridge at age 21, Hawking went on to change the way we see the world — thanks not just to his brilliant mind but to his wife, Jane. read full story »
