If I Could Live Like a Celebrity

I love watching reality shows. Some of my favourites are The Only Way is Essex (TOWIE), The Real Housewives of Atlanta, and The Rachel Zoe Project. I was also a huge fan of Keeping Up with the Kardashians and all their other spin-off shows, but I have recently gone off those.

Reality TV or Trashy TV as some of us like to call it is so relatable, and I guess that is the reason why they are loved by millions. You get to see these celebs living their lives, in their homes doing regularly stuff and it becomes addictive. I don’t watch reality tv shows as much as I used to some years (hardly watch TV these days) but I still play catch up on a few and watch more movies instead.

I am a huge fan of James Bond films, I have seen many of them including the latest Spectre. I like the flashy lifestyle of James Bond in the movies. From his expensive suit and shoes, to his cars, sunglasses and watches. The James Bond character is definitely living the life!

I recently came across this Licence to Chill infographic on www.chillmoney.ie  and I found it very insightful. It shows off the very lavish lifestyle of James Bond, Martin McFly and Jay Gatsby. I found the figures alarmingly. Who knew a one bedroom flat in Chelsea London would cost £700,000? Or the Omega Seamaster 300 watch would cost £4600? But then again, I am not too surprised, this is exactly how a A list celebrity lifestyle looks like.

I wouldn’t mind living a James Bond lifestyle for a bit, exclusing the fights and violence. I will be in it for the lavish bit only.

What are your thouughts? Are you alarmed by the costs of stuff on this infographic? Which of the 3 characters on the infographic is your favourite?

Zoe Saldana Covers Glamour UK August 2016

Glamour-Aug16-cover-b_640x960

The beautiful and talented Zoe Saldana, my fellow twin mama, is on the cover of Glamour Magazine UK August 2016 issue. I almost didn’t recognise her on the cover. She looks very different, in a good way. I guess it is that motherhood glow everyone talks about.

I really like this Glamour Magazine cover. I love Zoe’s hair and makeup. Her pose and outfit are right up my street as well. It is a different kind of cover, but different in a good way.

I am a Glamour fan normally so I know for a fact that I will be buying and reading this issue. I want to catch up on Zoe. I have not seen or heard much from her since she became a mum. I can’t believe she will be turning 40, she can pass for a 20-year-old easily. I hope I look half as good as she does when I turn 40.

In her interview with Glamour, Zoe Saldana talks motherhood, marriage, her new movie – Star Trek Beyond  and about Idris Elba being the next James Bond:

“I think Idris should have been Bond a long time ago, and if the people behind Bond are not capable of evolving, then I really hope that the whole franchise passes on to new, fresher, younger and more intelligent hands: people who are able to make better decisions for James Bond.”

I would love to see Idris Elba as the next James Bond. I mean who wouldn’t? I think he will make an excellent Bond but lets wait and see.

The other features on the cover also look interesting, especially the 397 Holiday Style + Beauty Tips To Love. That article sounds promising.

I can’t wait to get my hands on this issue.

Do you have one already? What do you think of Idris Elba as the next James Bond? Are you a fan of Zoe Saldana?

Top 10 Fashionable Characters From Movies

The fashion conscious among us have often chosen to draw inspiration from Hollywood movies, and this is largely down to the stylish attire of many of these movie characters. Check out these 10 characters below:
1. Mookie
do-the-right-thing-spike-lee
Sometimes fashion is timeless, sometimes it captures a particular period – as is the case with Spike Lee’s character from his own 1989 filmDo the Right Thing. Mookie wears the clothes of the Brooklyn streets during the late 1980s, namely outsized basketball shirts, shorts and sneakers, and it was a look many young men wanted at the time, many still do today.
2. Patrick Bateman

a-complete-guide-to-the-mens-fashion-in-american-psycho

This murderous yuppie from the movie – American Psycho (1999) is not a character to aspire to, but his wardrobe was something else. Sporting immaculately tailored dark pinstripe suit and shirt, he exuded the outward trappings of success.
3. Jules Winnfield
A well-tailored black suit and white shirt combo is a classic look, and few have looked cooler clad this way than Samuel L Jackson’s hitman from 1994’s Pulp Fiction. His overall look vaguely suggested the 1970s without conforming to any exact period, just like the film itself.
4. Cher Horowitz

This dizzy but sweet character from the 1995 comedy hit – Clueless was played by Alicia Silverstone, who became a fashion icon to young girls everywhere – with her knee socks, a- line miniskirts and many other stylish 90s outfits.

5. Elle Woods
Legally-Blonde-1-1024x7681_1
Elle Woods, portrayed by Reese Witherspoon, achieved something similar in Legally Blonde (2001). Her character was the same mix of dizzy and clever, while her outfits ranged from pink to more pink. Not everyone can pull this look off but it suited the character perfectly.
6. Jacob
This character from 2011’s Crazy Stupid Love, played by Ryan Gosling, was a ‘player’ who devoted his life to picking up women, thus his envible wardrobe. Sporting tailored suits and dark cashmere sweaters he certainly succeeded in this aim.
7. James Bond

There has rarely been a time when 007 didn’t look perfect, but 2006’s Casino Royale, was a highpoint, despite the new, gritty feel of the movie. His casual outfits included shirts from Sunspel Riviera, plus those infamous blue La Perla trunks, he could have easily played these off playing mobile casino sites like Mobile Casino Australia, while his formal outfits included a classic tuxedo with Turnbull and Asser shirt.
8. The Motorcycle Boy
This enigmatic character from 1980s movie – Rumble Fish avoided the cliché biker look of jeans and black leather jacket in favour of suit jacket and trousers, shirt and no tie. This marked the character out as an individual, while still looking cool.
9. Carrie Bradshaw

The heroine of Sex and the City was permanently clad in high fashion, from Manolo Blahnik shoes to Prada dresses, which again made her a character that fashion lovers aspired to be like.
10. Zoolander
Zoolander
Perhaps the single greatest fashion icon of all time is this male model portrayed by Ben Stiller in 2001’s Zoolander. Few could carry of his outfits – which included a leopard skin suit and bag – but we would all like to be able to.
With Zoolander 2 now out in cinemas, it is clearly time for us all to raise our fashion game and meet his challenge.
