A Hornet and a King

Last night I went to a screening of The Green Hornet. Apparently, the movie is coming out in 3D when it opens in January. However, the screening was not? Without giving anything away (hate when people do that!)

A few comments....

I went in knowing zero about this film, so when I read the credits rolled, I was shocked to learn it was directed by Michel Gondry. Shocked mainly because it seemed sooo mainstream for him!

All the guys around me laughed throughout the entire film.

This is the type of movie you have to see on a big screen.

I also saw The King's Speech this week. Incredible, I loved the way it was shot and Colin Firth was spectacular, way to commit to a role. Helena B Carter and Geoffrey Rush are fabulous as well!
TGIF peeps!

Ojon Restorative Hair Treatment

I gave this product a try. I was amazed that you take this product that has the consistency of paste and rub it in your hands for a second and it immediately turns into an oil. Although it did not seem to absorb in my hair that well, it more or less stayed on top and did not seem to penetrate, so I wasn't sure how well it would work. I washed it out per the instructions, shampooed (is that even a word!) and put in conditioner. All in all my hair feels soft but not so sure of the nutty almost ashy smell. Maybe be a little to earthy for me, and this coming from years of living in Boulder where the term earthy is really put to the test.

If you buy the Ojon Hair Treatment from Sephora right now a portion of the proceeds goes towards helping to fight breast cancer - click here

It got me to run!

I went to a screening of The Fighter last night! It was terrific and personally it motivated me to start to move my body more! I was surpised to see Darren Aronofsky, ya know - the director of Black Swan, is the Executive Producer.
In case you haven't heard, Black Swan is a must see!!

I try to run a 4-5 days a week and my schedule this week has made it especially hard. I should mention, I H.A.T.E running in the early morning. My body is not ready and I like to run when it warms up. Not this morning, I've already gotten my run in and credit 100% goes to The Fighter.

Have a great weekend!

Babajiji means Grandparents. This I learned last Thursday night at a beautiful little soiree hosted by the Tortoise Clan. The evening was part jewelry show and part dining experience. The food was prepared by Yuri Nomura. It was fresh, delicious and the presentation was impeccable. Jump over to her website for more - Eatrip. Her website is Babajiji and it was Yuri who taught me Babajiji means Grandparents!

SH, CV, JK, TOS....

I'm a big fan of Clare Vivier and her collection of bags; handbags, clutches, totes...Yesterday I was invited to a tete a fete in her honor at the new Soho House. It was a lovely time and we even managed to sneak in drinks and dinner on the rooftop patio watching the sun go down over the lights of LA.

At the party, I met Jesse Kamm, forever immortalized by her shift with the big black bow (see pic above). We chatted a bit and Jesse shared some very interesting projects she and her husband have underway.
++ She also mentioned that after a very short hiatus she is back designing and her collection can be found at TenOverSix in their new location on Melrose. Here's a blog post from the TenOverSix shop - click here - which includes photos from Jesse's new collection - ENJOY!!

Ipods flaw

Apple did such an amazing job designing the Ipod, were they all tapped out when it came to the headphones or in-ear buds? Let's face it, for running they SUCK, they don't even stay in your ear!

Visual Storyteller + Eat, Pray No Love

LATimes launches - Framework - the photography and video blog by the LATimes. This will serve as not only a diary but a resource for all visual artists. C-O-O-L!

On a side note - I am SICK of Eat, Pray Love and it's not even out yet. This film is so OVERmerchandised and OVER capitalized, its disgusting.
Thus far, I've had furniture, clothing, perfume and more than one jewelry collaboration thrust in front of my face. Isn't the 'moral' of the story about stripping all the layers and finding your true self. Seems quite contradictory if you ask me!!
And to cap it off I heard that Julia Roberts is now a practicing Hindu???
