Black Swan (2010): Natalie Portman, Mila Kunis, Vincent Cassel
Black Swan is a disturbing psychological thriller based on a ballerina's physically and mentally gruelling role in the ballet - The White Swan. Portman, won an Oscar for Best Actress in 2010 for this movie. The portrayal of Princess Odette, White Swan, is brilliant along with the pirouette into insanity by becoming the Black Swan. The film is deeply twisted and darkly meshed with jealousy, betrayal, lust, self loathing and a crazy parent with a few typical Hollywood movie scenes. Not uplifting or for the faint of heart.
PASS! Unless enjoyment is found wallowing in dreary and depressing stories about dysfunctional personalities. Seeing The White Swan at a ballet theatre seems more promising.

One day while driving, I noticed that the scratches on the lens were bothering me. Upon a recent trip to my favorite store, I spotted a new pair of shades. I tried them on and the rest is history. I love these retro sunglasses. They fit perfectly and have the polarization that is a must. Why? A glass surface is horizontal, the light reflects horizontally. With polarized sunglasses, the surface filters out the horizontal light waves and protects from harmful UV rays. For example, wear a pair of sunglasses without polarization and investigate a river or lake. You will not see the fish swimming clearly. With polarized sunglasses you can see the fish with an eagle eye. Thus, my fascination with wearing only polarized lenses. By the way, I wear sunglasses year-round protecting from…
What I Love This Week - Perfume - Scents, seductive, fresh and oh so beautiful
Lancome's Le Vie est Belle Eau De Parfum (Life is Beautiful) is lovely and unforgettable. Have you ever worn a perfume that receives lots of comments? I personally love this scent.
