I honestly do think I have been more excited for a movie to come out since probably Titanic, oh and maybe Spice World. This Baz Lurhman(Moulin Rougue, Australia) film was basically tailor made for moi. Its an adaptation of my all time favorite book about my favorite era the rolling 20s, by my favorite author F. Scott Fitzgerald, and stars my two favorite actors, Leo and Tobey Maguire(I think you get the picture). There have been tons of film adaptations of this novel, and though I was quite fond of the 1974 film I have been waiting for a film to really do justice to this wonderful novel and really convey what a G, Gatsby was. I am already blown away by the trailer and cannot wait until the film comes out in theaters this Christmas. For once I am actually looking forward to the typical Jewish Christmas tradition of you know movies and Chinese food, well not so much the later part still.

While relaxing in the Tuileries on my day off from work, one summer day in Paris I met some awesome girls from Austin Texas, Veronica and Ariana. We immediately bonded over fashion, cupcakes, carousels, Fitzgerald, Audrey Hepburn and Tautou films and well Gossip Girl and other delicacies. I decided to take them under my wing and take them to all of my favorite Parisian hot spots. This of course included a trip to my favorite Salon de Te La Duree. We decided to commemorate our friendship and trip with matching kitschy (and cheesy) I heart Paris lighters. Though the flame is dwindling, I still have my lighter and think of these girls and my trip every time I use it. At least we will always have Paris though… Photo Cred to Veronica Camara an aspiring photographer who took all of these amazing pictures.
