I've been testing out the BF's netflix and they don't have too many new instant movies, but I decided to check out The Ugly Truth. Even though Rotten Tomatoes gave it a mere 14%, horrible critical reviews, but I mean what can you expect from a romantic comedy using the same formula all are made from, I honestly actually enjoyed it! Its def not an intellectual type film, its got some awkward transitions, but overall a good film to watch and laugh with plus Gerard Butler is a TOTAL hottie, oh my! At the end of the movie, Katherine Heigel's character and Gerard Butler's character go on a hot air balloon ride. It looks so gorgeous and it would totally be such a romantic date! That scene alone has now made me crave going on a hot air balloon, totally on my list to do before I die. Anyway, I shall leave you with some pictures of hot air balloons so you can swoon over them to, at least those of you who aren't afraid of heights! :)
Have you ridden on a hot air balloon? If so, please tell me its amazing!?!

As the completion of four years of hard work and endless amts of studying, there is that post graduate trip that I fully believe everyone should allow themselves to partake it. It can be a short weekend trip, a long relaxing beach trip, a trip around the world, whatever it may be, after all that hard work and the excuse of "you will never have time off like this again", it must be done! After high school, it was beach week, after college it was an amazing unforgettable trip to europe - London, Paris, Barcelona, Rome, & Venice (what would almost be considered backpacking, hostels and all of that but I didn't travel with a backpack!), and now my big trip was GOING to be Asia. That didn't really pan out so well due to poor planning on my part, my mom throwing me a late graduation party so that it wouldn't be so close to my cousin's wedding and my moving to California in a few short weeks! So with all of that in stow, Asia couldn't happen, so it'll take backseat for a post-residency trip perhaps!?
So where where did I have in mind to go, you ask? Well, my last vacation was a cruise for my cousin's wedding, that went to Bahamas, St. Martin & St. Johns, plus I'm not a huge beach person. I like the beach, I like warm weather, but I also get very restless. So cross out beach vacay for me. Hawaii was an option, which I would have been fully willing to partake in, but the timing wasn't exactly right as well. Thought about going back to Europe, should have jumped on it when the volcanic ash was bringing down the flight prices, but you wait a few days, a week, and now those prices are upto $1000/flight, so that gets axed off. So the trip at choice is Seattle & Vancouver.. which is a perfect mix of sight seeing, nature & food, and we do get to go out of the country, even though its our neighboring counterpart! I'm SO extremely excited to eat all the delicioso food both cities have to offer. There is so much to do and so much to see in only 6 days!
If you've been to Seattle and/or Vancouver, any advice and what to see, do and eat would be lovely! & Please share your summer plans :)

Like many other women, I'm a HUGE fan of Sex and the City. I didn't watch it originally when the series aired, but later on in college through the DVDs. I actually got the whole set for my birthday one year! I couldn't resist these four single, independent women with some killer fashion sense and amazing shoes. Sex and the City was about the bond between real friends, the relationships they encountered, their love for the City, and most of all it showed how fabulous women could be without men.
I was really looking forward to the 1st movie, and I enjoyed it! But SATC2, I'm not too interested in, only because it seems that they're making it to make it, its all about the $$ & success of the first one. There's not much there in the story line the 2nd time around, and it seems a little outlandish & far fetched they're going to Abu Dhabi; but then again its Sex and they can pretty much get away with any costume design and look amazing! I'm not saying that I won't watch it because I'm probably going to end up seeing it, it just doesn't excite me like the first one did!
It might not have excited as many viewers as they hoped either, Sex and the City 2 fell short of expectations of 60 million with 51.3 million from this memorial day weekend opening, but they had some tough competition from Prince of Persia and family friendly Shrek. Although it is expected to pick up. This memorial day weekend was a slump in the movie business, but maybe thats attributed to high ticket prices and recession conscious consumers. I know I don't go to the movies as often as I once did and the prices are DEF way higher than they use to be!
