She's Got It

  There's a certain 'it' that only French girls seem to have. As much as any of us Americans may try, we will never posses the confidence and stylishness of a woman who has grown up in France. In my opinion anyway.
  The only exception I can think of is the first ever French It Girl: Marie Antoinette. She was originally Austrian, but moved to France at age 14 (I believe) and learned rather quickly!

 Two more current French It Girls come from the world of blogging:
1. Le Blog de Betty 

2. The Cherry Blossom Girl

  Two more French It Girls come from the world of entertainment:
1. Charlotte Gainsbourg (singer)

2. Clemence Posey (actress)

  I'm a bit of a Francophile. I'm semi-obsessed with anything French. So the next two posts are going to be dedicated to French things: pastries, and 'it' girls. 
  French pastries have to be the most beautiful food in existence. As difficult as I'm sure it will be, I'm going to endeavor to bake some of my own when I return from my tour this summer (I'm leaving TOMORROW!).
  Anyways, here are some fanciful photos of macaroons and other gorgeous french baked goods. (My apologies for the lack of photo credits... I'm not very good at keeping track.)

Sun Dress

  An outfit bought for my summer trip. It makes me feel like it's genuinely summer, despite the constant rain.

My Sister's Keeper

  The other day, I went to see My Sister's Keeper with a few friends. I read the Jodi Picoult book it is based upon years ago, and must say that I am not impressed with the movie remake. First of all, the ending was entirely different than the ending in the book. And not only that, but the movie ending was TERRIBLE. It's difficult to explain unless you've read the book, which I encourage that you do - Mrs. Picoult's writing is exceptionally good. 
  One good part of the movie was some of the acting. Cameron Diaz surprised me with how believable she was, as did Thomas Dekker. 
  The only other part I enjoyed was the soundtrack. The most memorably good song on it was Girls Just Want to Have Fun - sung by Greg Laswell. Click, listen, enjoy.
