Frilling Summer Movies: The Help


I read The Help last summer, and loved it. The movie was shooting during that time, and I have been waiting in anticipation ever since. At first I wasn’t sure about Emma Stone playing Skeeter, but I’ve since decided that I’m excited to see her in this role. I think she is a really talented actress, and hopefully this movie will give her more opportunities in the future to play lots of different kinds of roles. 

I’m also excited to see Bryce Dallas Howard play Hilly Holbrook and of course, Viola Davis as Aibileen Clark. And I can’t wait to see Minny Jackson come to life on the big screen! 

The Help premieres in theaters next week on August 10th! Will you see it? What did you think of the book?

Frilling Summer Movies: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2


So I’ve been really distracted lately. HP2 comes out on July 15, and I’ve been re-reading all of the books in anticipation for the big occasion. I’m currently on book six. These are my favorite books of all time. OF ALL TIME. 

I know it’s been out for a while now, but have you seen the trailer? It’s so good!

Also, I love Emma Watson, naturally. She’s got great style and is this month’s Vogue Cover girl. I think she’s gorgeous. You can see more pics from her shoot and read her cover story here.

I also LOVE Bonnie Wright. Every time I see her red carpet photos, I go on and on about how stunning she is. She’s the July cover girl for Haute Muse, and while I’m sure there was some photo-shop going on, I am still amazed at how grown up she is! 

All that to say, until my summer session ends and I finish these books and any other form of procrastination HP might cause me, Tuesdays post won’t hold a lot of water.
