Today's Obsession: Spring Nail Art

I've already wrote a similar post about S/S 2014 nail art trends on catwalks, but this is going to be about more complicate and artistic nail designs.
Like Miranda Priestly said in The Devil Wears Prada: "Florals? For spring? Groundbreaking!" but yet there are a lot of funny patterns you can try. They can be both funny and fresh (it's spring, after all!) and at the same time original and elegant.

Enjoy the gallery!

Naomie Watts vs Natalia de Molina

On March, 15th Naomie Watts attended the ‘Diana’ New York Screening evening wearing a Michael 
Kors cutout printed electric blue&white maxi dress. 
Then, just a few weeks later at the Malaga Film Festival, the same dress was worn by Spanish actress 
Natalia de Molina
Now, I'm not a particular fan of this cutout dress, but the main question here is: which one of the two beautiful actresses wore it best? What's your opinion?

Novel Of The Week - Winter Of The World by Ken Follett


And finally the second chapter of "Century Trilogy", Winter Of The World by Ken Follett is here!!!
I wanted to dedicate all my time and attentions to this novel so I started reading it almost a year after I finished Fall of Giants, but I was able to finish it just a few weeks ago due to my University schedule and its length.

Movie Review: 300 - Rise Of An Empire

#MovieReviews : 300 - Rise Of An Empire on - Rise of an Empire (2014) by Noam Murro. With Sullivan StapletonEva GreenLena HeadeyRodrigo Santoro, Hans Matheson and Jack O'Connell.

Based on Frank Miller's graphic novel "Xerxes", it's wrote by Zack Snyder (300, Sucker Punch, Man of Steele and Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole)

Since I'm a bit goofy, it took me a while to understand where I have already seen one of the Athens' soldiers but somehow I recognized him: he's Jack O'Connell, but some of you may know him thanks to his character in the second generation of Skins, James Cook!!  

He has a pretty huge part in this movie!

Angelina Jolie vs Emma Watson

I'm well aware this is a very dangerous post since the contestants are the great Angelina Jolie and Emma Watson, but I couldn't help myself.

So we have the two actresses wearing the same menswear inspired tuxedo by Saint Laurent. Miss Jolie wore it when she attended the 2014 BAFTAs, last January, meanwhile Emma Watson wore it during her appearance at the ‘Late Show with David Letterman’, on March 25th

I had a tough time trying to decide who wear this outfit better, so I'm leaving the decision to you all!
Tell me, who's your pick?

  • Angelina Jolie
  • Emma Watson
