Things to do in London This Weekend

Why are the British so obsessed with weather? Maybe because of its unpredictability? 28 degrees in Autumn…strange. Anyway who cares?! Lets enjoy this freakish weather while it lasts 🙂

Daily Distraction – Something Borrowed

So tonight is Orange wednesday night woohoo. My friends and I will be going to see Something Borrowed. Yes it is a chick flick but it is a bit unusal as it is essentially about cheating people.  Based on Emily Griffin’s novel it has my favourite actress in it Ginnfer Godwin and the leading man is smoking.. read my review in the next post.

Watch the trailer below:

Idealised version of married life…

Everybody knows that couple that even after years together still looks at each other lovingly and treats each other with warmth and kindness. A friend of mine sent this to me at work today.  Taken from the film UP this clip follows a couple’s life together until the inevitable time comes when they have to part. Warning if you are of the tearful type get some tissues!

Audrey Hepburn Month at the BFI 12 Jan- 2 Feb

“The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It’s the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows & the beauty of a woman only grows with passing years. “

— Audrey Hepburn

Those that know me personally know how much I adore the late Audrey Hepburn. This icon embodied elegance, style, and class. Her style and beauty is timeless and she is an inspiration to many women around the world to this day. You can imagine how ecstatic I was to discover that the BFI are dedicating a whole month to her best films. Here is your chance to see Breakfast at Tiffany’s and My Fair Lady on the big screen!

The Audrey Hepburn season at BFI Southbank is running from the 12th January to the 2nd February 2011.

Here are some clips from My Fair Lady and Breakfast At Tiffanys:
