Film ~ Divergent

Directed by Neil Burger, this sci-fi film set in Chicago divides a society into five factions where one, Divergent is targeted and set to be destroyed. In a world, based on virtues and since they don’t fit in, Tris (Shailene Woodley) and Four (Theo James sooo hott!!!!!!!!!!) aim to survive through this action packed journey before it’s too late.  What would happen if you were tested to find out where you truly belong, your destiny? What makes this group that mysterious and dangerous? Follow the adventure as it topped the box office this past weekend. Find theaters near you here.

Fashion ~ Questionable

Who determines what is right for you to wear, a twist in fashion.

Many fashionistas are purchasing magazines to find that amazing style guide but how long will this trend last.

These days, individuals lack self-belief that their own opinion is enough. Personally, I admire the theme or design that the creative director portrayed. Then there are times when celebrity culture is shoved down your throat and you envision that if you purchase that Kenzo sweater, you will be like her (fill in the blank with actress, singer, model of your choice). What’s the point though? If not, aren’t we just playing by their rules.

I had a friend say to me today, “Can’t believe you’re buying the pink one when Miley has the black.” Who cares about Miley Cyrus! Shouldn’t it just be what I like? Starting to seriously wonder about some people…

There is a relative shift in who calls the shots for fashion. Fashionistas are now looking upon bloggers and Instagram feeds of everyday people to find their inspiration. I think it’s better to identify with someone who is true to their style rather than the print publication adverts of a celebrity paid to wear/promote an item to gain social presence. It’s an integral part of the young generation following, tweeting, pinning and virtually expanding their minds through digital communication. It’s true and will only continue to consume us as social media develops further. I’m excited for more.

Travel ~ Flash Fiction

Waiting in the line at JFK. Passport and ticket handed over. 4 hours later. Taxi to my destination. Sunshine. 70 degrees outside. Raybans are on. Arrive safely. Love this hotel. Unpacking items. Taking a peak. Balcony view. Vibrant atmosphere. International crowd. SLR at the ready. Warm breeze. Girls in bikinis. Waves are tranquil. Beach is beautiful. My adventure awaits. Walking around. Found a spot to chill. Cocktail in my right hand. Cute guys on my left. Can’t wait to  explore more. Electro house tunes blasting. Intense energy. Amazing at M-Bar. Guess my spring break destination.

This social city is calling my name.
