Because there's just too much ugliness.

Scrumptious as a cherry-peach parfait

I really was only going to post the first video...but I got carried away with it and I really couldn't not post one of these scenes, they're all too wonderful.

I used to watch this movie with my dad when I was a little girl (we fast-forwarded the scenes with the creepy child catcher). It has lost absolutely none of its magic for me.

she's counting the diamonds on rings..

Tap dancer instead of a drummer?
Meet Tilly and the Wall.

I don't know how I just recently learned about these guys...they're excellent!

honestly, the way the tapper moves her arms i find really irritating...but the girl with pink lips and white/silver hair is my latest crush.

As She's Walking Away

Zac Brown Band. Alan Jackson. Beautiful music makers.
Down to earth, decent, simple, straight up, hearty.
I love their music individually, and together they put together this easy, gracious song. This is the kind of song that melts my concerns and just immediately puts me in a better world.

street style

not exactly sure why I'm in love with this girl, but I am.

photo cred: the sartorialist


Introducing David R Daniels, a watercolorist.
Its vibrant and bright and beautiful...and so airy!

This is the one I found first, that I'm doing a paper on for art class:

oh the magnificence of color:!

recent favorites

Some really outstanding red carpet looks lately, finally the celebrities are having an upswing!

I think Michelle Williams is beautiful always, but she's stunning in this dress by Jason Wu:

I'm not sure why I love this, but its such a fitting look for her, with the bangs and the eyeshadow. Its cool, almost cold, but stylish.

and here Natalie Portman is just perfect. I'm crazy about her hair:

oh to broaden horizons

Step one to finding lots of lovely: be less picky.

So far, I've been holding to only a few varieties of happiness, which were all marvelous, but I'm gonna be a little bit more flexible and available with what I post.

This is just a silly, creative video my little brother found. Love the idea!
