Country Girl Necklace

If only...
I could wear my jean dress
And wander around the tall grass in my soft boots
Whispering horses, climbing up the trees
A life that is quite and serene
Simple happiness is what it is...

Short Hair Style Tips

The bob model I use for almost seven years has become a part of me because of its easy maintenance and effortlessly stylish look. Some of my friends who have short hair like me requested a post about styling tips for short hair and I'm here to share my ideas with you. You would think that since it is short the options are little but this modern hair of yours will look stunning if you only show the slightest effort.

* Straight Hair: Whether you have straight hair or curly hair you can have pin straight hair in an instant. After you washed your hair, apply a straightening serum or spray. Then use a large round brush or a large rectangular brush to straighten as best as you can. Next, grab your ceramic hair straightener and pass it through the hair which you parted into small sections beforehand. You don't want the heat to damage your hair girls, so use the straightener as quick as possible. You can use this chic model both day and night, it is so convenient.

* Natural Waves: You can create soft waves with a wide barrel curling iron. Afterwards, lightly mess your waves with the help of your fingers to have a natural tousled look.

* Headbands: Headbands come in various kinds and colors. They are functional, keep your hair in place and out of your face. No matter you are on a bad or a good hair day they are your hair's reliable friends. Now you thought about it you are grateful to them, right? OK, maybe I went a little bit far. Anyway, back to my point headbands are wise and easy choices and we all should benefit from them. You could either slide it just above the hairline or farther back. Place one or a couple of them just to make your own fashion statement.

*Barettes: After you style your short hair, just part it on the side and place your cute barette. Let some small part of your hair show on the front. Now, barettes are also another rescuer of our hair. They keep the hair out of the face or hide it if you are on a bad hair day. Plus, it draws attention to your lovely face.

As a bonus, I share the bandos, headbands, flower clips and other kinds of clips above. I chose all of them just for you from Accessorize website. I guess what I want to achieve by showing them is to make you feel more enthusiastic to apply the tips I suggested above. Have a colorful day!

Say Anything

We are moving through our 'Movies We Want to Watch' list and this week's movie is a 1989 Cameron Crowe classic, Say Anything.

I can't remember the very first movie which I came across with John Cusack, I guess it was America's Sweethearts and since that day he ranks high on my favorite actors list. Early on, he already got my standing ovation with his performance in Runaway Jury, and then he became a phenomenon for me once I watched him in High Fidelity. He hits the bull's-eye in every movie with his exceptional talent, portraying unconventional heroes, talkative, carefree, sometimes indecisive, so likable that makes you feel like you are cronies. Even if he says nothing at all, his facial expressions always manage to make me laugh.

After this brief introduction let's move on to the movie. Say Anything is Cameron Crowe's debut film as well as one of the first movies of John. (Yeah, I pretty much took the liberty of calling John Cusack on a first-name basis.) John's character is Lloyd Dobler who has just gratuated from high school and he captures our attention with his style consisting of a tan trenchcoat, The Clash t-shirts, sweatpants accompanied with high top sneakers. Kickboxing is his special interest and his heart beats for Diane Court, the brainy, beautiful girl of their high school.

Although Diane Court adorns the dreams of most guys, to everyone's surprise at school the only guy who convinces her to go out is Lloyd Dobler, a total nobody for everyone. Diane is in the preparation of going to England for college and decides to hang out with Lloyd till she leaves for England. Lloyd is a real considerate lover and he is willing to do anything for Diane. As for Diane, she is stuck in between her father's plans for her future and her unexpected feelings for Lloyd, and watching her inflicting agony on Lloyd makes us want to strangle her throughout the movie. Lloyd's words below describes his misery perfectly:

"She gave me a pen. I gave her my heart, she gave me a pen."

What made me watch this movie? Ever since I watched Sixteen Candles and got acquainted with the Jake Ryan legend a couple of years ago, I found out that in 1980's, American women compared Jake and Lloyd incessantly as to make the final decision on the important matter of which one is the ideal boyfriend. I immediately got curious about this information and wondered about Lloyd Dobler's qualities that put him in the competition with Jake Ryan. Having seen both of them in action do you want to know my decision?
Well, first of all I want all of you to realize that I'm facing with a tough situation here. I mean, on one side I have Jake Ryan and his birthday cake scene with candle lights competing against Lloyd's boombox serenade scene on the other side. It was really a hard decision but Lloyd Dobler who has no clue about his career plan came out as the winner for me. As we are filled with the joy of scratching out one more movie from our list, the words we hear from Sezen's lips about John Cusack's performance are "This movie sums up John Cusack!"
