Halloween nails ideas

Buuuuua! Halloween is just around the corner. In Slovenia and Europe in general we don't celebrate it as much as in America. For me this holiday it's all about being creative, have fun with carving pumpkins and use spooky themes the best that you can. I love bats, spider webs, weird trees, bloody patterns, etc.

I'm still not sure what will I do with my nails? I want something cool and simple. I don't konw. If you feel the same way take a look at some Halloween nail ideas and hopefully you will get inspired!

What are your planes for Halloween this year?

Last week's favorite looks (October 20 - 26)

It's last Wednesday in October and here are my last week's favorite looks (October 20 - 26).

Margot Robbie attended the 3rd Annual Australians in Film Awards Benefit Gala in Santa Monica, California. She wore a Dion Lee strapless fitted dress with diamond-shaped mesh panels styled with white pumps, a braided hairstyle, glossy lips and a chain-accented ear cuff. I know it's a bit boring for some but I like this all white look.

Emily Ratajkowski looked foxy while walking the carpet at the Hearst MagFront: Unbound Access in New York City. She opted for a Jonathan Simkhai two piece matching ensemble with Jimmy Choo shoes.

Jennifer Lawrence attended Elle’s 21st annual Women in Hollywood celebration in Beverly Hills, California. She paid homage to the late designer Oscar de la Renta, wearing an ivory corded guipure lace dress from the Spring 2015 collection. She gave the look an edge with black accessories including a Rodo clutch, waist-cinching belt, Christian Louboutin sandals and red nails and lips.

On the dark side. Jessica Alba attended the Mission Hills World Celebrity Pro-Am opening ceremony in Haikou, China. She wore a sleek black wool jumpsuit with a crystal-embellished halter-neck from Emilio Pucci’s VIP collection. Jess styled the look with complementary silver accessories including a Thale Blanc clutch and Giuseppe Zanotti mules.

Ashley Madekwe attended the Barneys New York & Vanity Fair celebration of the launch of the XO Exclusively Ours 10th Anniversary Capsule Collection created by Thakoon Panichgul in Beverly Hills, California. She opted for stylish yet laidback Thakoon Addition jumpsuit styled over a simple white tee, with black strappy sandals, a Jennifer Fisher choker and a red pout.

Behati Prinsloo looked sleek and chic in a black Ralph Rucci ensemble at the 2014 Global Leadership Dinner in New York City. Cutout details and heels give this look an edge.

Street style. Heidi Klum in two cool casual looks in Paris, France. Simple black and black and white comobs work for me.

Also one lovely frock. Reese Witherspoon in a Tanya Taylor dress in a vibrant green, black and white pattern, styled with a black Saint Laurent bag, oversized shades and pointy Gianvito Rossi pumps.

Movie review - Step Up All In (2014)

Step Up All In (2014) / music, romance

Directed by Trish Sie
Written by John Swetnam
Based on Characters by Duane Adler
Produced by Jennifer Gibgot and Adam Shankman
Starring: Ryan Guzman, Briana Evigan, Misha Gabriel, Adam Sevani, Alyson Stoner, Izabella Miko, Mari Koda, Martín Lombard, Christopher Scott, Stephen "tWitch" Boss, Luis Rosado, Chadd Smith
Trailer: click.

Step Down!

Sean (Ryan Guzman) and his crew the Mob from the previous film are in Los Angeles trying to make a living from dancing, but are turned down at every audition. The Mob decides to pack up and leave LA, thinking there is nothing left for them but Sean isn't quitting. He notices a dance competition called The Vortex taking place, inspiring him to put together a new crew with help from Moose (Adam Sevani, from the previous Step Up films). Sean and Moose recruit Andie West (Briana Evigan, from Step Up 2: The Streets) and later, Vladd (Chadd Smith), Violet (Paris Goebel), the Santiago Twins (Facundo and Martin Lombard), Monster (Luis Rosado), Hair (Christopher Scott), Gauge (Cyrus "Glitch" Spencer), Jenny Kido (Mari Koda), and Chad (David "Kid David" Shreibman) to the crew.

It's hard to believe they're still making Step Up movies. The fifth installment offers some old faces that we love (e.g. Moose) and new choreography moves but that's all. Plot that was seen hundred times before, zero storytelling, cheesy, underdeveloped, no emotional connection and terrible acting. If you are not Step Up fan or into the dance scene then you will want to skip this one. 2/5

Movie review - Let's Be Cops (2014)

Let's Be Cops (2014) / comedy

Directed by Luke Greenfield
Written by Luke Greenfield and Nicholas Thomas
Produced by Luke Greenfield and Simon Kinberg
Starring: Jake Johnson, Damon Wayans, Jr., Rob Riggle, Nina Dobrev, Keegan-Michael Key, James D'Arcy, Andy Garcia, Jon Lajoie, Tom Mardirosian, Natasha Leggero, Rebecca Koon, Nelson Bonilla, Joshua Ormond
Trailer: click.

Pure entertainment!

Two long time pals, Justin (Damon Wayans, Jr.), a reject video game designer, and Ryan (Jake Johnson), a washed up college quarterback, recall a pact they once made: if they hadn’t made it in Los Angeles by the time they were thirty, they would head back to their Ohio hometown. It all looks like they are going home but one party changes everything. Ryan convinces Justin to use the police uniforms from his presentation as costumes for their college reunion party. Upon attending, both are confronted with their failures and mutually accept to honor their pact. But as they walk home, they are treated like real cops and decide to enjoy the gag. How long before someone realizes they are not real cops?

What a wonderful surprise! From start to finnish, this flick is entertaining and that's the point right? It's predictable in every way and you can call it a dumb buddy cop comedy but because of Damon Wayans, Jr. and Jake Johnson who have a great comedic chemistry, this film will make you enjoy the ride. Other cast members are good as well. The movie is dynamic, wacky, ridiculous, funny and amusing! It's actually better than many blockbuster comedy's I've seen over the years. Certainly one of my favorite comedies in 2014! I'd recommend you watch it. 4/5

Movie talk: Movie Trailers

For some time now I've been thinking of writing about topic that I really feel passionate about. Movies? Yep! Correct answer! I finally decided to publish a 'movie talk' post once in a while. There are so many things to talk about when it comes to films and I would love to share my views and opinion with you guys. I encourage you to do the same or just think about the things you'll read.

My first view is on movie trailers. I don't like them and if it is possible I don't watch them at all! Of course I can't help myself if I'm very excited about some film but other than that, I prefer not to!

Why not?
They reveal way too much. They used to show only small bits and when you saw the film it was bigger and better. But in last decade or two, the trailers changed so much. The best parts of the film are usually already used in a trailer. Now where is the fun in that? Oh, wait. They only want us to go to the cinema and get our money. Sad but true.

Another thing I noticed is that if the trailer looks very good and attractive, the film turns quite the opposite unfortunately. Not always though but for the most times, they are misleading. And the other way around. If I'm not impressed with the trailer, the film itself generally turns out good! And at times I just feel they put something together without any effort, like they do right after the film is announced with teasers. Like the audience doesn't notice that!

I try to approach films without any expectations. Sometimes this is hard because of all the media buzz and all the promotions actors do, but still. I try not to think too much about it and just enjoy the ride. Further more, I don't like to know much about the plot. For me the genre or style of the film and basic information are enough. And I don't like the speculations. I'll have an opinion after I see the film! Predominantly I'm sceptical when it comes to remakes, sequels, reboots and adaptations (I'll talk more about that in the future). But judging actors and the film before even seeing it is bizarre, don't you think?

So it's always funny when a new trailer comes out, especially for the movies I'm looking forward to. Part of my brain is like: ''I want to see the trailer!'' But the other side is like: ''Naah, not really. I just want to see the film!'' Anyone else having same problem? Can you control yourself and not watch it? I don't want to jinx it but I'm considerably disciplined and I don't. Tempted, yes!
