Movies to Watch: Begin Again


Kiera Knightley and Mark Ruffalo in "Begin Again"


Girl meets boy, girl falls for boy, boy breaks girls heart. Seems simple right? Not exactly, Begin Again is the charming tale of a singer-songwriter who finds herself after heartbreak in the Big Apple. Along the way she meets a failed record exec and helps bring him back to life to with great music and New York City as a back drop. 

I truly adored this film from beginning to end, mainly because it's about the enduring power of friendship and the music as I said before was amazing, had know idea Kiera Knightley could sing so well!! If you haven't watched it yet, I urge you to check it out. I would point you to the soundtrack on Spotify, but you should see the movie first to get a feel for it. Trailer below:

Orphan Black








Who else is watching the brilliance that is Orphan Black? That amazing show that showcases the beyond fabulous performance of Tatiana Maslany? If you haven't watched it yet, let me catch you up: a grifter takes over another woman's life, who just happens to look like her. The catch - she's her clone. Soon Sarah, finds herself immeshed in a tangled web that includes her and her fellow clones running from two separate groups who want to use them. Each episode is a none stop road of fun. 

I've brought this up to say that in the coming weeks I plan on running outfit posts based on each of the main clones: Sara, Helena, Cosima and Alison. For instance, Sara is none for her punk aesthetic with skinny jeans, cool t-shirts and a leather jacket along with body jewelry from some place like FreshTrends. You can catch up from the beginning on Amazon Prime. For now, check out the trailer below.

Hey, Terriers!



There are a lot of binge worthy shows, right now. I've already waxed on poetically about Orange is the New Black, now on to another favorite though, short lived show Terriers  I vaguely remember this from its original airing in 2010 and thought it was a show about...dogs? Not only was I wrong, but I totally missed out on a great show about two private detectives, Hank and Britt and the cases they solve week to week.  Set in San Diego, Hank is a former detective, recovering alcoholic who solves cases with his friend, Britt, a former thief.  The witty banter between the two remind me of another one of my favorite detective shows, Veronica Mars and the love they share for each other reminds me of my favorite bromance Corey and Shawn from Boy Meets World.  The entire series is streaming on Netflix, so check it out ;). I'm leaving you all with the theme song.
