👗Bianca Lawson vs Keleigh Sperry

For today's #WWIB we have two absolute newbies...or should I say three, because for the designer as well its first appearence here!
Actress Bianca Lawason wore this fantastic Alice+Olivia floral embroidered gown first, while at the 
Annual PaleyFest Fall TV Previews. She added nothing more, given the dress particularity: neutral make up and a loose hairstyle.
Nearly a month later, model Keleigh Sperry (Miles Teller's fiancée) wore the same gown at the 'Only The Brave' premiere. She opted for an high and messy bun and nude colored lipstik to complete the look.


Who do you think wore it better?
Bianca Lawson or Keleigh Sperry?

👗Laura Haddock vs Nina Dobrev

Today's #WWIB is total white!
Laura Haddock has been the first to wear this Prabal Gurung piece, attending (alongside husband Sam Claflin) the premiere of his latest movie ‘My Cousin Rachel’, back in June. She went minimal, leaving all the attention on the layered dress, with a simple hairstyle and make up.
Nina Dobrev opted for a more edgy approach, showing off the runway version of the look with the black belt and her new short bob cut. The actress attended the he premiere of ‘Flatliners’, later this September.

🎬Movie Review: A Perfect Day

Risultati immagini per a perfect day
Somewhere in the Balkans - 1995

Mambrù and B., two veterans AID workers, are disillusioned and with a humour darker than black. The newest memeber of their team, Sophie, on the other hand is an idealist and really wants to make the difference in in villages torn apart by Yugoslav wars. 
Their task for the day is to restore a water well, where a fat man drowned: they need to get the body out before the water gets contaminated, but the rope they use breaks...
Risultati immagini per a perfect day movie
While B. and his translator look for a new rope, Mambrù and Sophie head to the UN headquarters, were they get orders to stop any kind of help to the locals: war is over, so they are not allowed to do anything, if not helping with demining. Mambrù also has to take war analyst Katya to the airport: the two are ex-lovers and it looks like they have quite a few things that still need to be discussed.

This is the start of their day-long journey to find a new rope, in an area where war is "officially" over, but that doesn't mean the operators are safe: rebels, landmines, UN's rigid rules, poverty and Mambrù ex-lover will make every effort twice as difficult.

My Opinion👍👎
This is a war movie, no doubts. Its peculiarity is that you won't see a single bullet shot nor a human killing another human: nothing it's showed, all is implied. 
The surroundings are bare and desolated, everything reminds were you are and how horrible and critic the situation is. A simple thing like looking for a rope becomes almost an epic quest for gold. 
All being said, you may think this movie is dreary, depressing and negative at its best...prepare to be surprised because IT IS NOT: obviusly it's not funny like a comedy, but Mambrù and B's black humour is almost comforting and their willingness to help others (even if it's not completely disinterested) a spark for optimism.

To sum it up, you have to watch this movie! It's realistic, but not overwhelming and it's istructive, if you haven't got the chance to study contemporary history at school.

Would I pay the full prize ticket? I saw it on Tv, but I'd have definitely payed the full prize ticket to watch it at the cinema.

👗Lily Collins vs Michelle Williams

Time for an 'old' #WWIB, since the dress made its first appearence in November, last year.
Lily Collins wore this Self Portrait bi-coloured crochet dress first, while heading out of the Today Show studios, where she made a guest appearance to promote her movie 'Rules Dont Apply'. Her style was very bon ton, with simple black high heels and a semi updo hairstyle. 
Singer Michelle Williams wore the same dress last April and styled the dress with a more modern approach, wearing over-the-knee black boots and mirror sunglasses.

Game Changer by Charissa Stastny - Book Blast & Giveaway

Game Changer by Charissa Stastny 

Meridee Mansford wants nothing to do with the popular crowd. She’s comfortable being invisible. But that doesn’t stop her from dreaming about the hunky football player who visits the campus ice cream shop where she works. Still, she’s smart enough to know he’d never notice a girl like her, and she’d never want him even if he did. Too much unwelcome attention. Parker Harrington basks in the glory that’s been his since the game-changing passes he caught that pushed his team into the national spotlight. Sticky Fingers is his media moniker now, and the cheerleaders who used to ignore him when he sat the bench have become his most devoted fans. But when he accidentally crashes into a quiet coed and covers her in orange chicken, it throws off his offensive game. As fate, ice cream, and orange chicken throw the opposites together, will Parker continue keeping company with women he knows are only using him for his fame, or will he change up the game and risk his heart on a genuine girl who despises the attention he craves?






   
Praise for the Book 
“A fun and flirty new adult romance. It’s a sweet indulgence that keeps you turning pages. The start to what is sure to be a great new series." 
Jennifer Peel, author of 'Pianos and Promises' series 
“Opposites attract when the overlooked sweet girl lands herself the popular football star in this quasi-Cinderella story. It’s the perfect read to keep you up way past your bedtime...”
Taylor Dean, author of 'Chasing Fireflies'  
   
Excerpt 2 
 He reached out and grabbed my hand. “Meridee, I wondered if I could take you out tomorrow night. To make up for that mishap in the CUB, you know?” I blinked, but couldn’t move. Couldn’t even form words. In fanciful daydreams, I’d imagined him holding my hand like this, but never had I expected it to happen. Holy llama. It felt as though Parker was an electrical socket, sending a steady stream of tingling energy pulsing through our connected hands. And wait! Had he just asked me out? I was still playing catch-up. But when his words registered, it was like a bucket of icy water over my head. I whipped my hand away from him. “No, thank you.” I rubbed the shiny counter to conceal a furious blush. For a moment, I’d allowed myself to believe he was serious. “You don’t have to make up for anything. Let’s forget that whole debacle ever happened, shall we?” “Oh, come on. I need a date, and you need some fun.” I scowled. What did he mean by that? Did I appear that pathetic? “Please. I don’t bite.” He playfully chomped his teeth. My lips twitched. “I’ve stopped playing football in the CUB, and haven’t tackled any more girls to the floor. You’ve had a reforming influence on me, Mare.” I narrowed my eyes. “It’s Meridee.” “Please say you’ll go with me, Meridee. We’ll play miniature golf, see a movie. Pretty please with huckleberries on top?” Why would he want to date me when he had that gorgeous cheerleader and every other girl on campus throwing themselves at him? My knees pulled together and I tucked my arms into my side. He really must pity me. “I can’t.” I returned to my needless wiping. “Why not? Do you work?” “No,” I said, grateful I didn’t have to lie. Mom always said my eyes gave me away. “I have tomorrow off.” My body needed the R&R. “Then you can go.” He leaned over the counter and winked. No wonder he wasn’t used to hearing no. When not tackling girls to the floor, he could be very persuasive. I clenched my rag. “No, I can’t. I already have a date.” “Cancel it. Surely he’s not as great a catch as me.” I scrubbed the toppings area with gusto. “I can’t cancel on my fiancé.” I crossed my fingers, hoping that whopper might stay his pity. “You’re engaged?” His disbelieving tone whacked my ego. I nodded without meeting his gaze.

👗Kat Graham vs Katy Perry

Today we have a sequin multicoloured dress by Attico, a piece that certainly does not go unnoticed!
American actress Kat Graham wore it first back in August, while supporting her former "Vampire Diaries" co-star Nina Dobrev at her Harper’s BAZAAR September Issue cover party. 
Kat looked shimmering in the rainbow dress, which she matched with black high heels sandals and wavy ombre hair.
American singer Katy Perry wore the same dress while 'on duty': as the new ‘American Idol’ judge, she made quite an entrance at the "Good Morning America" studios. She styled the dress with Katy Perry footwear ‘Microphone’ bright red pumps and yellow lenses sunglasses.
