Roses are red, Violence is Blue

Em, Courtney and I drove to LA last weekend to see Blue Valentine (starring Michelle Williams and Ryan Gosling) at Arclight.... Seriously, no words. I cant even begin to explain how good this movie was. I havent stopped thinking about it. i want to watch it over and over again. This style of movie is going to open up a whole new genre of movies to our lives. And im A-OK with that.

In a recent interview, Michelle talks about how she recieved the script when she was 21 years old and now that the movie is done... she is 30. Ryan Gosling reveals that 'Blue Valentine' is the best thing he has done and will do in his entire career. The young actors actually lived in the house they filmed in together prior to making the movie to get deep into their roles. And my God this method acting was as raw as it gets. If this movie doesnt win like 100 awards i might slap someone. A++ from me, 10 stars... get off your ass and go see it.

The new Em&Ems, minus the chocolate.

Welp, great news!!! Em and I are getting skinny. period. Eating less and more healthy too. Beach walk bi-daily which includes running up and down every set of stairs that leads to the beach AND situps in the grass. And on the days we dont walk, I gym. (bc em is already pin thin) Em is toning and Id like to lose 15 pounds thank you. let me re-phrase... I WILL be losing 15 pounds, heck maybe 20. So..... Here is our regimen for getting skinny and gorgeous:

Beer is out. Vodka is in, and only on the weekends. (its more chic anyway)

Excercise all the time. (im even doing butt clenches right now)

Grow our brows. (four words: Brooke shields Blue Lagoon)

Less Cigs . (more weed. ahaha jk but seriously, Id like to be able to breathe when I run)

Sushi sushi sushi. (self explanatory)

Posture. (Yes its cute that Marykate has a slouch, but my back is starting to hurt and I dont want a hump back when Im old)

Fro yo for life. (hey it says nonfat, so shut up)

In addition to these key points, we are doing more things to turn our lives around to make them positive and help us live longer. For example:

Dancing on weekends, whitening our teeth, following our dreams n junk, regular dress up photoshoots in furcoats and open fields, starting our band.... and welp just plain not giving a shit
(my dad and brother would be proud I incoporated that in) and doing what makes us feel good, look good, and stay happy. Its been a few days since this all started and I already feel like how Mischa Barton must feel when she gets a new batch of meth.... fufilled.

-Le Unique of the Week-


Ladies and gents, this weeks Le Unique of the Week goes to "it girl".....

Atlanta de Cadenet Taylor.

What a babe. Born in 1992, she has already taken L.A. and soon the world by storm. She is already a proclaimed "it girl" and muse by well know photographer Mark the Cobrasnake, who photographs her regularly. In fact, the following photographs are from a recent photoshoot they did together. Behold.

Altanta is Le Unique of this week for many reasons. Firstly, HER NAME IS ATLANTA! duh. haha Pretty rad if you ask me. She is a fashion risk taker and trend setter in one. Her style could be described as new wave vintage, with a hint of model grunge. Atlanta is a social butterfly and a killer Rachel Bilson look alike with an exotic twist. She is the daughter of a british photographer and her looks are to die. Her locks are flowin and attitude is rockin.
Stunning and Uniquely Chic. Heres to you HOT-LANTA.
keep turnin heads and taking over the world.

Circus smirk-us

Love is in the air. Birds are twitterpated, People are getting puppies, popping questions and shooting out babies. yes yes its that time of year again. And i personally think its awesome when people celebrate these times of life with interesting and unique photographs. Take these ones for example taken by Josh Goleman. I dig them mucho. One day when its my turn to celebrate love i hope my photos can be along the lines of these.

le Unique of the Week

-Em Jay Campagna-

Emily "Em" Campagna......
1/2 of the emily's. one of the two girlfriends i love most (sara). Nanny by day, taking over the world by night. Aspiring film maker. Banjo picking, guitar player. Library liker. wine drinker. heavy thinker. Thrifty spender. French film watcher. Edie-like dancer. clog wearer. Alexa lover. world traveler. heart and neck breaker. way smarter..... than you.

She is one of my dear dear friends who has stolen mine and many other's hearts. She is a fashion freebird, finding inspiration from the latest runway looks, thrift stores, and clothes from 20+ years ago. She finds a way to mesh them all together for a look that only she can pull off and other people seem puzzled about. And looks damn good doing it. She is one of the smartest and wittiest people I know. I never met her in high school because she spent all her time in the library, a place i steered away from. She is a music and movie connoisseur, splashing her tastes all over the walls. From french to 80s to British punk to new wave, shes is always out searching for the newest and greatest sounds to create a life soundtrack to. There is never a boring moment with her whether its a wine and record night, time to go out and dance, photo adventures in unmarked territories or just plain hanging out. She is an old soul. She has a heart made of steal and feathers all at the same time. She longs to be a music venue owner or a film maker, planning to change our views with her visions.

Well i think you already have, Em. Keep up the good work. you are le unqiue of this week. You are a babe and one of my best friends.
