Oscar marathon #4

Just a quick update on my oscar marathon...

At the moment I'm really short of time for watching movies & blogging...and the Oscar's ceremony is tomorrow!

~ The Artist ~

I'm a huge fan of black & white and silent movies, so I just loved this one! I highly recommend it...It is nominated for 10 oscars - best motion picture of the year, best performance by an actor in a leading role, best performance by an actress in a supporting role, best original screenplay, best original score, best achievement in film editing, best achievement in directing, best achievement in costume design, best achievement in cinematography and best achievement in art direction. I really hope it gets, at least, best performance by an actor in a leading role and best performance by an actress in a supporting role...their job is absolutely amazing and inspiring! Plus, the soundtrack is lovely...Take a look at the trailer, here!

The Help ~

Another great movie, but, in my humble opinion, not an Oscar winning movie...For those, like me, who loved The Color Purple, this movie will make your day. Really good performances and smart script! Nominated for best motion picture of the year, best performance by an actress in a leading role and two times for best performance by an actress in a supporting role - Jessica Chastain & Octavia Spencer. Click here for the trailer.

Honestly, I think this year (actually, in the last years) we don't have any majestic movie on the run...remember Braveheart, The Silence Of The Lambs, Forest Gump? Not to mention the good old ones. What about Titanic? I was 11, fell in love with DiCaprio and cried my heart out - I know it's lame, but who didn't?...Since then, I've been waiting for another breath taking movie like that.

Now, changing subject...I've bought some really nice stuff from Benefit and will be blogging about that latter...Have a nice weekend!

An update on pore strips...

I'm really glad I ordered Bioré's pore strips...!

I got the green tea/sakura pore pack - the two kinds of strips do exactly the same, they only differ in color and scent. They dry really quickly and pull out even smaller blackheads. I'm really sad that they aren't available in my country - the shipping costs makes them a little expensive!

You can read my pore strips' review here.

Pastel mint & pretty pink

I'm usually Saint Valentine's "grinch" but today I made lovely mini red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese frosting to my friends. They are really easy to make and even easier to eat...find out here how to bake them!

Also, I painted my nails in my current favorite color, pastel mint, and listen to Lana Del Rey on my iPod all day long.

On my affair with Japan...

I just wish I had the time to make pretty bento lunches everyday...or have someone with time to do them for me...Here you can find a wide range of bento boxes and other accessories!
