“The Boy in the Striped Pajamas”: I really liked this one. It's "another war film", but shown from a completely new point of view. The two young boy’s acting is superb…their wide eyed innocence draws you into the story. Also, the mother’s costumes were beautiful.
“L.A. Confidential”: I know I’m a couple years behind on this one, but I still enjoyed it. A little graphic, but the plot is good. Is a smart movie with a twist, just the way I like it.

Last week I was spring cleaning and decided to purge my closet of all the old clothes that either don’t fit anymore or I just never wear. When I finished, I noticed that literally more than half of my clothes are black, half gray and/or white and very few pieces have any color. I also realized I only own two dresses.
So I bought a bright, flowery spring dress at H&M as a mother’s day gift to myself. I love it! It has the color I so desperatly need in my life. ;)
In this vein, I wanted to start trying a street style segment…but I’m too shy too ask random strangers to pose for me, so I end up take pictures like this:

my top five for unique l.a....
Butter crunch heaven. Seriously. They melt in your mouth and have you instantly craving more. The rosemary & thyme were not bad, but my absolute favorite was the almond butter flavor. I tried to make mine last, but they barely even made it the trip home.
Rock Scissor Paper
Lots of cute stationery, notebooks, greeting cards, mugs, etc. with original illustrations and an unique, colorful style.
For music lovers. Wallets, key chains, bags, etc. with records, cassette tapes, and turntables. They also had the cutest ipod cases…unfortunately, not for a touch or iphone....yet
She creates really cute mixed media paintings two things I really like: maps and birds. But she uses other images of flying objects, like paper airplanes.
Again I stress that there was so many truly beautiful and creative people. This is just a tiny slice of the Unique L.A. pie.
