Together, we saw Inception this past weekend. Have you seen it yet? love. Love. LOVE'D IT! I'm not much of a sci-fi/psychological/action movie person nor a huge fan of Leo D but this movie blew us all away! The underlying love story was a nice touch, but the special effects and impeccable casting were the real stars. Seriously, go see it. It will astound you.
I am not an impulse shopper. An item has to have a designated place before I actually decide to buy it. But I couldn't help snapping up this sunburst at Home Goods ($30).
Do I really need another sunburst mirror? Probably not. It reminds me of this room by Phoebe Howard and I really can't part with it. Don't worry, I'll get Mr. FC nice and drunk before I sneak it into the house, then I'll be all "What, that thing? It's been there a while. Remember, you were with me when I bought it." He'll give me the side-eye and mutter, "I'm pretty sure that thing's new.......but I'm sorta drunk.......maybe I was there when she bought it."
Also, just thought I'd share some light summer reading currently by my bedside. I read to help me fall asleep so, though it took me a couple months, I just finished these books by Sarah Addison Allen. I'm completely charmed by her work. Her novels sort of balance precariously between light summer reading, moody short stories, and.......well, a culinary magazine. Reading her books will make you hungry, I promise. It's certainly not heavy stuff by any means but it's not fluffy chick lit either. I love her writing more for the fact that her characters are real and flawed, yet there's a whimsical "Southern superstition and magic" laced into her stories.
Any good movies/books/impulse buys you've encountered this summer?
