Today's Obsession: Spring Nail Art

I've already wrote a similar post about S/S 2014 nail art trends on catwalks, but this is going to be about more complicate and artistic nail designs.
Like Miranda Priestly said in The Devil Wears Prada: "Florals? For spring? Groundbreaking!" but yet there are a lot of funny patterns you can try. They can be both funny and fresh (it's spring, after all!) and at the same time original and elegant.

Enjoy the gallery!

Today's Obsession : Pixie Cut - Part II

Do you remember my post celebrities' pixie cut? Well here to you the 2.0 version!
Yes, because in just a few month more and more actress/singers got the pixie cut, someone for work some others after ending for good a relationship (see ROBIN WRIGHT!!) but the one thing they all have in common is that they look fabulous!!

Naomie Watts vs Natalia de Molina

On March, 15th Naomie Watts attended the ‘Diana’ New York Screening evening wearing a Michael 
Kors cutout printed electric blue&white maxi dress. 
Then, just a few weeks later at the Malaga Film Festival, the same dress was worn by Spanish actress 
Natalia de Molina
Now, I'm not a particular fan of this cutout dress, but the main question here is: which one of the two beautiful actresses wore it best? What's your opinion?

Novel Of The Week - Winter Of The World by Ken Follett


And finally the second chapter of "Century Trilogy", Winter Of The World by Ken Follett is here!!!
I wanted to dedicate all my time and attentions to this novel so I started reading it almost a year after I finished Fall of Giants, but I was able to finish it just a few weeks ago due to my University schedule and its length.

Anyway, here's the story:

Movie Review: 300 - Rise Of An Empire

300 - Rise of an Empire (2014) by Noam Murro. With Sullivan StapletonEva GreenLena HeadeyRodrigo Santoro, Hans Matheson and Jack O'Connell.

Based on Frank Miller's graphic novel "Xerxes", it's wrote by Zack Snyder (300, Sucker Punch, Man of Steele and Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole)

Since I'm a bit goofy, it took me a while to understand where I have already seen one of the Athens' soldiers but somehow I recognized him: he's Jack O'Connell, but some of you may know him thanks to his character in the second generation of Skins, James Cook!!  
He has a pretty huge part in this movie!
