  • I believe in karma
  • I talk to myself in Italian
  • I sing loudly in my car when I'm driving by myself, even though I can't carry a tune.
  • I could live solely off of carbs and be completely content
  • I think modern art is completely ridiculous

"I disappear into the person I love. I am the permeable membrane. If I love you, you can have everything. You can have my time, my devotion, my ass, my money, my family, my dog, my dog's money, my dog's time--everything. If I love you, I will carry for you all your pain, I will assume for you all your debts (in every definition of the word), I will protect you from your own insecurity, I will project upon you all sorts of good qualities that you have never actually cultivated in yourself and I will buy Christmas presents for your entire family. I will give you the sun and the rain, and if they are not available, I will give you a sun check and a rain check. I will give you all this and more."

This is so me.

Marchesa Bridal

My favorite couture brand, Marchesa, makes the most beautiful dresses. Stars such as Jennifer Lopez, Jessica Alba, Heidi Klum, Eva Longoria, Penelope Cruz and countless others have graced the brand's stunning dresses on the red carpet.

I got on to the Marchesa website last weekend and was excited to see that they now have a bridal collection. Now I could never afford one of their gorgeous gowns, but it's still fun to dream, right?

Here were some of my favorites:

Chanel and Audrey Tautou

Ok so most of you have probably already seen this, but if you're like me you could watch it over and over again.

P.S. - I have the biggest girl crush on Audrey Tautou. She's très belle, non?

Anywhere but here

Looks like Mother Nature decided to play a trick on me today. Snow in April? Really? Right now, more than ever, I'd give anything to be back near the Mediterranean.

(Preferably Italy, of course...)
