BEST MOVIE EVER-Sherlock Holmes

I finally received this movie in the mail from Netflix. It was worth the wait. Sherlock Holmes had amazing sound and movie quality. The story was fast paced and intriguing and the characters were supremely engaging. Robert Downey Jr. was a stellar (savant) detective and such an awesome boxer. I even enjoyed Jude Law as Watson, because he wasn’t a womanizer, for once. I also enjoyed the brief scenes with Rachel Adams, playing Irene Adler. I love her costumes! (source)

The banter between Holmes and Watson was hilarious too.
Sherlock Holmes: You’ve never complained about my methods before.
Dr. John Watson: I’m not complaining. How am I complaining? When have do I ever complain about you practicing the violin at three in the morning, or your mess, your general lack of hygiene, or the fact that you steal my clothes? 

If you haven’t seen this movie, prepare to be amazed by the characters, plot and action!


Gorgeous Dresses and Details

Wedding season is starting soon! I love seeing all the gorgeous gowns and pretty wedding emails in my email inbox. I just had to share a few of my favorites!
Pictures from the Ruffled Blog (Pictures taken in Charleston, South Carolina):
Wedding Dresses: Carol Hannah’s shop / Hair: Rouge of Charleston / Makeup: III Jay Productions/ Photography: Caroline Ghetes / Models: Emily Hammond and Cecilia Johnson / Vintage Masks: Sweet Ruin

Don’t forget to check out Carol Hannah’s shop and blog. You can also follow her on Twitter, @HappilyEverCH.

If I were to add one thing to my wedding assemble, I would have added a beautiful headband. The new headbands are nearly as glamourous as the these Carol Hannah wedding dresses. What do you think of this headband called, Let Them Eat Cake?  I love the model’s red hair with the blue ostrich feather. (As a child, I totally wanted to have red hair like this, after reading Anne of Green Gables!)
By the way, Cupcake Royale has a new flavor, just perfect for weddings. It’s Lemon Mascarpone. 

I’ve recently seen Wink Cupcakes on Queen Anne too. Has anyone tried them? I love their website photos. 

What are your favorite wedding details?

Love Laura Bell Bundy’s music

This girl is amazing. She’s critically acclaimed on Broadway, originating the Elle Woods role in Legally Blond the musical and getting a Tony nomination! If that wasn’t impressive enough, she also has a top selling country album, Achin’ and Shakin’. I’ve been listening to it all day and I love it. It’s a great blend of heartbreaking and make-you-want-to-dance tunes. 

Achin’ and Shakin’ track list:

1. Drop On By
2. Curse The Bed 
3. Cigarette 
4. Please 
5. Homecoming Queen 
6. When It All Goes South

7. Giddy On Up
8. I’m No Good (For Ya Baby) This is one of my favorites on the album!
9. Rebound
10. Boyfriend?
11. If You Want My Love       
12. Everybody


Laura Bell Bundy is not only super talented but really cute too! 

Check out her music video for Giddy On Up. She’s got some awesome dance moves!

Enjoying new music on Thoughtless Thursday!


What new music have you been listening to recently? I just downloaded the Power of Madonna CD from the most recent Glee episode. Oh wow, it’s bringing back all my random, early 90s memories. It’s so awesome and fun.

I also just downloaded Laura Bell Bundy‘s CD, because I keep hearing her catchy tune, Giddy On Up, on the radio. Do you like country music?
