My past week was mainly characterised by movies, wine and obviously food. It was quite a normal winter week. The cold weather is making me very reluctant to go out, is it just me or does winter make you more lazy?
Here are my highlights of the week!
This is my outfit and look of the week:
Last Saturday evening we met some friends at 'The Fortress', a wine and dine place. My make-up was inspired my the 40s and 50s, my fave cultural decades!
My outfit is from:
At 'The Fortress' we had some platters and obviously lots of wine. We finished off the evening with this heavenly chocolate fondant.
Last week me and my bf had another platter, an oriental one from Hugo's Lounge, a trendy place in the heart of Paceville, Malta's main nightlife area.
This week he cooked this chicken served with rice and stir-fried vegetables.
He also prepared a shrimp pasta dish served with mushrooms and other vegetables. Believe me I have one talented mister.
Movies are a big part of my life. This week's picks were:
Hope Springs (2012)
Meryl Streep and Tommy Lee Jones give amazing performances as a middle-aged unsatisfied couple in this romantic comedy.
Here Comes the Boom (2012)
At first I thought this movie was going to be disappointing but Kevin James's comedic abilities make this movie pleasing and at times heart warming.
Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1953)
You have got to love this 1950s movie. You have Jane Russell as the practical, smart brunette and Marilyn Monroe as the beautiful gold-digging and at times dumb blonde. I love this era's fashion and this movie is filled with several glamorous outfits that make the movie and its stars even more mesmerising. It is a fun entertaining must-see movie. This is the movie that made the sizzling Marilyn Monroe even more iconic with her 'Diamonds are a Girl's Best Friend' performance.
I would also like to announce that I shall be doing a regular post called 'Silver Screen Icons' where I shall be sharing information, pictures and trivia about iconic actresses as well as actors. I shall mostly focus on the 1930s up till the 1970s. First up is...Rita Hayworth.
