So why don’t I start with the fact that I watched Black Swan for the second time today. If you’ve seen it and loved it like I did, you most certainly know exactly why I, being broke as a joke, paid to see this movie again. There is just something different about this movie that sets it apart from most films I’ve seen, usually with plots that are predominantly the same and endings that are unfortunately and disappointingly predictable, to say the least. Natalie Portman’s acting doesn’t usually do anything for me – it’s mostly her beauty and charisma that draws me to watch her movies, but her performance in Black Swan had me completely spellbound. Not to mention, this movie has also left me wanting to get some streaks in my hair and go clubbing. Anyway, I won’t bore you any further with my thoughts on each wonderfully put together scene as I don’t want to ruin it for those who haven’t seen this yet, so I’ll leave you with a photo of a real black and white swan (FACT: I didn’t even know black swans existed).
Here comes the fun part. Pictures of my very first outfit! Relax. It’s not going to be an exciting one. I had a family lunch to go to (father in-law's birthday) and as far as my family is concerned, I am broke as a joke, so when we get together, I don’t exactly dress to impress. In fact, I dress down a little and try to look slightly hobo to get some sympathy or even a free meal (that’s a joke btw, if you’re family and reading this).

|Here are the key pieces to get this look|
|Painted my fireplace tiles white (originally a peach marble-esque tile. yes, it was as bad as it sounds)|
|Installed some racks to hang a few necessities in the kitchen and increase counter space (not much but any is good)|
|Absolutely obsessed with plants that can live and thrive in water alone. The thought of re-potting scares me. And who can't appreciate the sci-fi-ishness of being able to see the roots?|
Until my next attempt,
PS - I am the queen of "PS's" so don't be surprised if I've got one for every post. Anyway, I realized that I have made no mention of the little prince that rules my heart (and pulls my hair, all at the same time). Here's a photo of him trying to find parking at the Granville Island market as well as his cool way of showing that Velcro can indeed be hardcore.
