On a happier note...

I know I was such a Debby downer yesterday. Things were just NOT going my way!
But here were some pieces of news that brightened my day :)
(dude... that just rhymed &I didn't even do that on purpose haha)
 
 Carey Mulligan was cast as Daisy Buchanan in the upcoming film production of The Great Gatsby!
F. Scott Fitzergerald's literary masterpiece :)
I remember the first movie I ever saw her in, The Greatest. Well I guess that is a lie because she was in the 2005 Pride and Prejudice, which is where I really saw her first. But that was her first film and had a smaller role so I didn't know that that was the first time I saw her. Since then she has made huge strides in Hollywood. It is funny that her first big feature film she had a small role in the movie where Keira Nightly had the leading role... since Keria Knightly tried out for the coveted role of Daisy Buchanan as well! Keira Knightly wasn't the only big time actress looking for the spot... Carey Mulligan got the role over Blake Lively, Scarlett Johansson, Natalie Portman, Michelle Williams, Abbie Cornish, and Keira Knightley as mentioned. It is no surprise the girl burst into tears when she found out (while she was getting onto the red carpet!) She is such a great actress, and I think she has the perfect look, and acting style (can people have an acting style?) for the part. I also think she will be great with the one and only Leonardo DiCaprio :)

Another thing that made me smile this week would be the announcement of Prince William and Kate Middleton's engagement. I read that some people think it is wrong that he proposed with his mother's ring, but I think the gesture is sweet and sentimental. I think it is incredibly special.
 
 
Kate looked so good in a dress that I thought was the perfect color to go along with
Princess' Diana engagement ring, simply fantastic.

  1. agreed, I thought that dress was perfect for the ring too!

    I actually am sad Natalie Portman didn't get the role, because I love her so, but Carey will do very well I know! I am glad it wasn't Kiera!

    Hope you're having a great day!
    and OF COURSE I remember your tea! My mom take echinacea pills! I wish I would've been drinking the tea or taking the pills because I've been sicker than sick!

  13. Okay, what role did she play in Pride & Prejudice? Also, I thought Kate's dress was the perfect color for the ring. I loved that it was a classic style also. She looked beautiful.

  14. I absolutely love her ring! If my MIL's ring was that big, I would've married my husband earlier. Kidding.

  16. I'm glad he gave her his mum's ring. I think Princess Di would of been honored.

    I heard Carey and Shia broke up..is that true?

  17. I think it's sweet he used his moms ring. I mean, if he were anyone else and his mom was anyone else it would have been fine and normal. Instead because of his father and the circumstances of her death people are all up in arms. It's weird.

    And I can't wait for Great Gatsby too. Love.
