slightly intriguing topics

Good Monday, gentle ladies!
How was your weekend? Mine was good and productive and relaxing...all of those are good things.

I feel like writing, but I don't have anything really awesome to share. So maybe if I ball up a few slightly intriguing things it will be a good post?? Maybe??

First: No heat curls. I saw the post here, I tried it. I like it. It's super easy and lasts a long time...even till the next day!




It even looks kind of cute while it's curling. Much cuter than a head full of rollers right? :)



And after a few hours, it looks like this: 


Ok, so SECOND slightly intriguing topic; my 2012 book list. (does it still feel weird to write 2012 to anyone else??)

So far I've read The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society and Little Women. Yes, I read the children's Classic Start version of Little Women. But I still read it. Even Sophie listened. It was good.

I loved the Guernsey book. It was a little tricky to get into it since there's no narrative, just letters back and forth. But pretty soon you get hooked! It was so good.

I've added a list to my side bar of the books I've read this year. Now I have currently gotten myself into three books at once, which I really don't like doing. I just sort of happened. Will update you soon.




Third: I am making these for dinner this week. Intrigued yet?






This weekend we watched Sarah's Key. I was afraid to watch it. I read the book a few years ago and it was one of the saddest books I'd read. I wasn't sure I could make it. I like depressing movies. Call me weird, I just do.

The movie was so good. It followed the book pretty well I thought. A lot of it was in French. Something about watching a movie with subtitles makes me feel all cultured-like ;)

Here's the trailer...




So that's about all the intriguing topics I have for the day...don't want you to ponder too much now.

Have a happy Monday, sweets.

I want to know how yummy those noodles are. They look so good. Glad you're enjoying the potato peel society book. Keep reading and making time for it! :)

Hair is on the mind today - this looks so cute on you! And doesn't having cute hair make such a difference in an ordinary day? We like French movies, too - have to look that one up. Happy Monday to you, friend!

*pretty* hair! :D I loved the Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society...I did not think I would like it due to the format, but I loved it! Great book. I don't know if I can handle viewing Sarah's Key.....

Have a blessed week!

I totally saw a no heat tutorial for curling hair. I was wondering if it would be a waste of time, but now I might try it! You look beautiful btw... as always!

you and your no heat curls are hot stuff! CUTE! i feel so lame because i could not get through Guernsey. nothing in me could make me finish it. Sarah's Key is on my read and watch list! i saw the Vow this weekend (i never see movies at the theater and i did and i wished i waited for Redbox only because i cried/sobbed) and it was so sweet - i'm reading the book too. oh, have you read the Pioneer Woman's love story? i just finished it and thought it was absolutely adorable. she's a hoot! happy new week, sweet girl.

I want those curls to work on my hair but they don't. And I want the noodles now.

Ok- I am sitting here covered in goosebumps- watching those *shorts* to Sarah's Key!

I too loved the book- and I too love a depressing movie(!!) - the face of that little boy there- oh the tears are rolling down my face- blimey I am hopeless!!

Love your curls- super cute whilst curling themselves yes!! and your Thai noodles- sounds like you're on the beaches of Oz... :-)

You're so purty. I cannot read Sarah's Key, not can I watch the movie. Loved Guernsey!

Lemonade Makin' Mama said...

Loved both of those books! Also LOVE watching foreign films with subtitles. My man and I watch a lot of indie films and have gotten to the point of not being able to watch a normal move with out subtitles. It cracks us up whenever we go to a theatre, because we always look at each other and say, "this movie would be so good if we had subtitles."

I saw a tutorial for sock bun curls recently and am totally interested in trying it. love your curls.
