Funny Faces: Beyonce & Audrey

Beyonce is KILLING IT in her latest video "Countdown". I love everything about this stylishly shot and really playful video. Like my BFF Roxy observed, this video definitely, actually its quite blatant, has a Funny Face meets West Side Story vibe to it. And who can blame 'B' for wanting to pay tribute to one of the classiest women that ever lived: the one and only Audrey Hepburn.

I've watched this video a dozen times already, I'm obsessed.






Here are a few shots that look familiar ;)




And here is the Audrey Hepburn Funny Face dancing scene. Classic.

{Balance} Apples & Chocolate

Happy Thursday Kiddies! It is a bright and crisp day up here in New England and I LOVE IT.

So as I walked by one of my office printers I was greeted by a candy dish full of Hershey's mini bars. GASP! Is someone secretly trying to sabotage my health efforts? How do they know I can't resist chocolate!?

Although it was not part of my diet plan for the day I quickly snatched up that little delicious piece of heaven and retreated to my desk. I then placed it next to my very healthy and doctor recommend red apple. And as I write this I can feel the manzana (apple) staring at me with judging eyes, that is if it had eyes.

Damn you apple. I will not give into the guilt this time. I will devour both of you up and smile.

Protein Pancake {breakfast}

Recipe


For breakfast I typically have one or two hard-boiled eggs, low sugar oatmeal, green tea and H2O. While that normally satisfies me, this morning me I craved for something different.  So on this rainy Friday morning I miraculously managed to coax my half-awake groggy-eyed self out of my warm & comfy bed and onto my macbook pro where I quickly scanned through some of my favorite health and fitness blogs for a recipe worthy enough of my very picky taste buds. Five minutes didn't even pass before I came across a recipe for a protein pancake from fitness blogger Sarah Fit.  Luckily I had all of the ingredients sans strawberries for toppings (my nephew ate the last ones I had in the fridge but I bare no grudge with my little monster) and whipped up the surprisingly DELICIOUS protein packed pancake. To satisfy my sweet tooth, I topped it with some Raw Blue Organic Agave from Trader Joe's.

I wholeheartedly approve of this concoction. Two enthusiastic thumbs up.

{Reel Style} Breakfast at Tiffany's

I adore, admire, and love Audrey Hepburn. She is the epitome of beauty, style & grace. She gave good face. (now I have Madonna's Vogue stuck in my head). Her wardrobe in Breakfast at Tiffany's was pretty amazing. I especially love the Givenchy gown she wore in the iconic opening scenes. Seeing as this year marks the 50th anniversary of the film I figured what better way to commemorate it with a post dedicated to Holly Golightly's style. Enjoy.

The 50th Anniversary edition [Blu-Ray] comes out September 20th.
