Cure it with Movies/Books: Christmas Time!!!

Christmas is less than two weeks away and everywhere I turn my head I see tons of articles and blog posts on gifts ideas for her, him, its. Under/above X dollars/euros. For hipster, bookworms, who's into sports, cooking and bla bla bla....

I admit it, I thought to do a similar article too, but then I changed my mind and decide to put on a list of movies and books to watch and read to get yourself in the holiday spirit!


Chalet Girl
This isn't the proper Christmas movie, but it's set in winter so I closed one eye...or two!
Felicity Jones is Kim, 19 years old former pro skateboarder who quit competing after a car accident where her mom died. She takes care of his father and when she finds she could make great money working as a "chalet girl" for a rich English family in Austria, she decided to give it a try!

The Grinch
Dr Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas Movie Poster
The Grinch (created by Dr.Seuss) is Christmas' sworn enemy! He doesn't love it and, because of that, he also doesn't want anyone to enjoy it too.
The Holiday
The Holiday Movie Poster
Sometimes what you just need is a break from everything and everyone...And that's what Cameron Diaz and Kate  Winslet did in this movie!

The Nutcracker
One of the most famous ballet with the music by Tchaikovsky and from the novel The Nutcracker and the Mouse King by Ernst Theodor Amadeus Hoffmann .

Jena Malone vs Olivia Palermo

Actress Jena Malone wore this yellow skirt by Emilia Wickstead first at the Londo premiere of "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1" movie. She styled it with a white top that she wore off shoulders earlier in November.
It girl Olivia Palermo wore it on another kind of red carpet, at the 2014 British Fashion Awards on the first of December, wearing a black t-shirt and matching shoes.
I have to say I like Jena's look more than Olivia's, that white top is to die for!
Let me know what's your opinion!

Who Wore It Best: Bvlgari's "Serpenti" Necklace Edition

This "Who Wore It Best" edition is not going to be about a dresses, but about jewelry...
To be precise, necklaces. Even more specific: Bvlgari "Serpenti" necklace.

There are different versions of the brand's iconic nacklace: with the snake's tail longer or shorter, with a teardrop' shape diamon at its end, the one that has to be worn on the back.
Celebrities loves sparkle, so here's a few of them wearing the same neckalce.
Check them out!

Actress Zhang Ziyi wore the necklace while attending the Bulgari 'Stop Think Give' exhibition preview and cocktail in Rome, back in 2012 while actress Julianne Moore wore it at the Bulgari Celebrates Icons Of Style: The Serpenti event during Fall 2013 Fashion Week in N.Y. City.

You may have notice that the two actresses not only worn the same nacklace, but also the same purse! 

Back to this year, we have socialite Poppy Delevingne, who wore the necklace with a stunning Emilio Pucci piece during the 2014 amfAR Milano Gala in September. Last (but not least) actress Kate Beckinsale that styled her Kaufmanfranco white dress with the Serpenti necklace and showed off on the red carpet ot the 2014 AMAs in last week.
You've probably seen also Carla Bruni-Sarkozy wearing this necklace in its different versions, but since she Bulgari's 2014 testimonial, I didn't put her in this #WWIB.
