This Week HG is Loving...

One or two birthdays ago, BG gave me the DVD of The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. My old laptop wouldn't read Region 1 DVDs, so it took until last Tuesday for me to watch it, and oh do I wish I watched it earlier. I loved it! All 4 actresses were great and each of the four storylines were so loveable and touching.

First off, I love the idea of having a small group of tight friends whom you can depend on and have fun with. It's even more fun when the friends are so different yet so compatible (like the 'sisters' in Traveling Pants.)
Fashionwise, the movie wasn't quite inspiring. But that's not the point of the movie is it? There is, however, enough differences in their fashion sense and beauty style to show their different personality.

OK, so as said, there were 4 storylines, all linked and witnessed by the amazing pair of jeans, which fit all 4 girls. My favourite one was Lena's (played by Alexis Bledel) story. Lena goes to Greece to visit her family and sketch. She accidently meets a gorgeous guy and they fall in love. Sounds so typical, but it's seriously so sweet. It doesn't hurt that Alexis is so perfect for this role.

Another storyline is Bridget's (Blake Lively). She goes to soccor camp and starts chasing after the coach. All this is not your typical romance plot, as it actually disguises a much deeper issue with her parents.

Then there is Carmen (America Ferrera), who visits her not-quite-there-dad and finds out that he is preparing to marry another woman and annoying new family. She tries to deal with her problems with her dad and body figure.

Lastly, there is moody Tibby (Amber Tamblyn), who works in the local supermart and tries to make a documentary on the local people. She stumbles upon a little girl, who in turn starts to follow Tibby around. Tibby finds out the girl has a disease and realises life is bigger than what she thought it was.

All these storylines are linked by the symbolic jeans, and the letters and encouragement from each other. See? It's seriously such an incredible moving to watch both, quietly and with your closest friends. Who else has seen it? And if you haven't seen it, go buy the DVD! It's SO worth it.

I love this movie and the books (The 4th one is coming out in January). When the first book came out me and my friends all went to Goodwill and got jeans, then we all embroidered each others. When the movie came out we all went to see it together. We kinda assigned each other the personalities of each character, supposedly I am the most like Bee.

I love this movie too, and the books are even better!! I can't wait til the next... Anyway, my friends and I have, unofficially, the sisterhood of the traveling books. We have all read these from the same set, and they have been passed on. I read the third book on an airplane and cried the whole time... :D

I've read the book, it's amazing. One of my closest friends bought it and lent it to the rest of our group of friends to read it. We all loved it!
I didn't like the film as much as the book, so i recommend you to read it ;)

I've read all three books over and over. I absolutly love this series! I also think they did a GREAT job turning it into a movie! (And i'm not just saying that becuase I love love love Alexis Bledel.) I cried at the end of this movie though.
Great story.

i loved the movie too! my favorite story was carmen's... i think it set a great example in confronting things straight with your parents before its too late to fix it...

Lena's story was just a treat to the eyes... all the Greece shots were gorgeous!.

Your post made me squeal in delight. I love this movie and the books. Please do yourself a favor and read all of them!

Speaking of fashion, I actually HAVE the dress that Kostos bought for Lena in Greece (the white one with the pink flower embroidery). It's BCBG collection.

Hair extensions is another great way to change your looks and personality. Getting extensions has been made popular by celebs and is now affordable for the average person depending on the type of extensions they are after. Thier is some great info on Hair Extensions for anyone that maybe interested in getting a new look.

So would you consider hair extensions to be a fashion item or a fad. Be interested in your views

This is one of my FAVORITE movies! Great story lines. And it features a young Blake Lively, who I am no obsessed with thanks to Gossip Girl.
