Just in time for the holidays, I've teamed up with a few blogger babes for a $300 Kate Spade gift card giveaway! Best news of the week, am I right? So since the gift card is for $300, I've put together a complete Kate Spade shopping list that totals $300--so you can essentially use your gift card toward each piece on this list. But first, enter the giveaway, luvs! This giveaway ends Nov. 25, 2014 and is open to the U.S. and Canada.

When I first saw this dress on the ShopLately website, I was like, "yes, I most certainly need more stripes in my life." Who doesn't like stripes? And the asymmetrical hemline--but, of course. It also comes in the opposite color pattern. If you search my blog, you'll see that I've been a fan of ShopLately for a really long time. ShopLately is a marketplace with a selection of clothing, accessories, shoes and beauty products with new arrivals every Monday. What I love so much is that I can always find something stylish for a great price, which is part of the reason why I'm a ShopLately Insider, which allows me to get free shipping on everything for just $9 a year.

I wore this fun Know Style ensemble to a lovely Blogger Friendsgiving hosted by Just Add Glam and Style Lend. About 20 Bay Area bloggers sipped on champagne, had a potluck dinner, tried on beautiful dresses and just fashionably mingled. It's always great to get together and catch up in person with the bloggers you're friends with on social. When was the last time you met up with your blog friends?

Originally, I wasn't going to do a movie review of Interstellar, but I was way too busy this week to put together another fall manicure, so this took its place. I didn't actually want to see this movie, but I heard that it was good, so the hubs and I went to see it. What I can say is that the film starts off quite strong. You understand that planet Earth is on its last legs and someone has to find a way to keep humanity alive, but you don't yet know how this will be accomplished, or even if it can be done at all.

Somewhere in the latter half of the movie--possibly around the two hour mark (yep, it inches close to 3 hours!)--the smartness of Interstellar and Christopher Nolan movies in general is sort of kicked to the curb. Things get a little ridiculous and convoluted. You ever watch a movie/show where a female scientist says or does something absolutely unscientific? Yea, that happens here too. Since I consider myself to be a smart woman, I really can't get behind that sort of thing. But then the movie picks back up in the last 10 minutes with the help of a sarcastic NASA robot named TARS.

Now I'd like to rank some Christopher Nolan movies from best to worst. Feel free to disagree with me. Have you realized that Nolan likes to work with the same cast? Michael Caine is in almost all of his movies, and he's worked with Anne Hathaway, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Christian Bale and Marion Cotillard a few times too.

The Prestige..............................Two magicians compete to see which one is the best. Turns out, the movie itself is the biggest magic trick in the entire film. My rating: ♥♥♥♥♥


Inception...............................A wanted man who spends his time extracting memories from people's minds has to now figure out how to plant a memory instead. My rating: ♥♥♥♥

Memento.............................This didn't get a lot of love at the box office, but has since become a cult favorite. A man has to solve a crime, backward and with memory loss. My rating: ♥♥♥♥



The Dark Knight Trilogy.........................A re-invented Batman with a darker, more adult story line and even more memorable villains. My rating: ♥♥♥♥

Interstellar...............................An interesting movie that mixes science with science fiction. Looks like Gravity, except it uses hardly any CGI. My rating: ♥♥♥

Transcendence..........................Ahhh...no. But technically, he only produced this--didn't write or direct. My rating: ♥
