These Are a Few of My Favorite Things....

(just because I love them and it's spring!)

Something Borrowed

Something Borrowed--okayyy I admit, I liked it.  Actually I loved it.  My friend/movie buddy J-Money always makes fun of me because he says I love every movie (so NOT true by the way, has anyone seen The Mirror Has Two Faces? No? Don't.)  Something Borrowed was a great chick flick.  You're fooling yourself if you think you're going to walk into the theater expecting it to be some work of cinematic genius.  What you see is what you get-with quite a lot of laughs along the way.  My friend KKM made me read the book last summer (it's one of her favs) and I didn't love it, I definitely liked the movie a lot better, and that is due, in most part to John Krasinski.   I love him has Jim Halpert, he was great in It's Complicated, but oh my goodness was he fabulous in Something Borrowed.  His sense of cometic timing made the movie, I don't think I've laughed that hard at a movie in theaters since It's Complicated (well maybe No Strings Attached)

In the interest of full disclosure, I pretty much adore any movie that takes place in the city or the hamptons, so since Something Borrowed took place in both it was a jackpot and it mighttt have clouded my judgment.  I was so homesick when I was watching the movie-I was just dying to teleport to Shake Shack or to my sandy hamptons beaches.  I literally have a section of new york movies on my bookcase that I watch when I get homesick and when it comes out on dvd Something Borrowed will be added to that collection.

I rate it as a B+, see it at your own risk.  I thought it was fresh, cute, and full of laughs.

Have you seen it yet? Let me know what you thought!

Calypso for Target

Yesterday morning I jumped out of bed and made it to my Target just as they opened to get first dibs on the new Calypso collection for Target.  While nothing will replace the real Calypso (of which I am a HUGE fan) their line for Target is not a bad alternative.  I found a few cute pieces that I'm ready to rock when the weather gets a little better!  This is what I got:
