Celebrities Love....Lokai bracelet

I wanted to do a meanigful post for this Christmas Eve and I think the story behid this bracelet is perfect for the task! 

Steven Izen, founder of Lokai, had the idea of combining the elements from the highest and lowest points on Earth basing the choice from his personal experinces - in the white bead there's the water from Mount Everest and it represents thetime when he felt he was so blessed (on the top of the world) for where he was in his life...but in the same period he was informed his beloved grandfather was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and he felt so unhappy and sad, so the black bead has in its inside the mud from the Dead Sea (the lowest point of his life).

These two beads combined with in a circular bracelets means that of course in life you'll going throu bad and good times, but you have to stay positive and hopeful!
As you read in the title, some celebrities who love the meaning of the bracelet and showed it of in some selfies. Bella Thorne, Ashley Greene, Julianne Hough, Shay Mitchell, Alessandra Ambrosio and Giuliana Rancic are just a few of them....

So, what you think about this bracelet?

In the meantime I wish you all a Merry and Serene Christmas!

Cure it with Movies/Books: Christmas Time!!!

Christmas is less than two weeks away and everywhere I turn my head I see tons of articles and blog posts on gifts ideas for her, him, its. Under/above X dollars/euros. For hipster, bookworms, who's into sports, cooking and bla bla bla....

I admit it, I thought to do a similar article too, but then I changed my mind and decide to put on a list of movies and books to watch and read to get yourself in the holiday spirit!


Chalet Girl
This isn't the proper Christmas movie, but it's set in winter so I closed one eye...or two!
Felicity Jones is Kim, 19 years old former pro skateboarder who quit competing after a car accident where her mom died. She takes care of his father and when she finds she could make great money working as a "chalet girl" for a rich English family in Austria, she decided to give it a try!

The Grinch
The Grinch
The Grinch (created by Dr.Seuss) is Christmas' sworn enemy! He doesn't love it and, because of that, he also doesn't want anyone to enjoy it too.
The Holiday
The Holiday
Sometimes what you just need is a break from everything and everyone...And that's what Cameron Diaz and Kate  Winslet did in this movie!

The Nutcracker
One of the most famous ballet with the music by Tchaikovsky and from the novel The Nutcracker and the Mouse King by Ernst Theodor Amadeus Hoffmann .


                       Mark Leino - Christmas Story                       My review HERE

If you missed, here's my last year list of movies to watch before Christmas!

Jena Malone vs Olivia Palermo

Actress Jena Malone wore this yellow skirt by Emilia Wickstead first at the Londo premiere of "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1" movie. She styled it with a white top that she wore off shoulders earlier in November.
It girl Olivia Palermo wore it on another kind of red carpet, at the 2014 British Fashion Awards on the first of December, wearing a black t-shirt and matching shoes.
I have to say I like Jena's look more than Olivia's, that white top is to die for!
Let me know what's your opinion!
