Hey! I Wanna Get Better!

I have been consistently sick this September with a nightmarish cough and scratchy throat. I don't know why I didn't take their smoking and screamo warnings more seriously (that's not the reason). 
This picture makes no sense with what I'm talking about, or probably anything I could ever talk about. 

Anyways. Here are two songs that pretty accurately expresses my feels...and a Taylor Dosey quote that I just thought of and I CANNOT WAIT FOR GILMORE GIRLS TO COME TO NETFLIX! Now back to our regularly scheduled post (pssht yeah right. Like I have a post schedule. Clearly not post number two of September..).

"Pain is your body's way of saying 'I'm not okay now, but I will be soon.' " -Taylor Dosey

As a Young Girl. Louis Vuitton.

I did a culture project in French class about three famous French people and Louis Vuitton was one of the people I chose (Jean Dujardin and Julie Delpy were the other two FYI). Unfortunately, Louis Vuitton, the man from the 1800s has exactly one picture of himself. 
I put the picture in my PowerPoint multiple times gallery style because sometimes life gives you obstacles and you have to work through them with your creativity. I think this situation specifically happened to Hilary Clinton as well and this is what her book is about.
Well, it struck me while looking at all of these copies of the same picture, that Louis Vuitton and Nick Offerman might as well be twins. Or prehaps time travelers, it's unclear. THEN, I saw a picture of Zach Galifanakis looking like Louis Vuitton. Insanity. Check it out.

Wear this.

Hopefully, you know who I'm talking about when you hear me say Rachel Antonoff. 
Best friend of Mae Whitman and older sister to Jack Antonoff so basically sister-in-laws with Lena Dunham. She's in the group of famous people I'd like to be a part of if I had any fame. Follow her on Insta. 

What this is really about is not a promotion for her social media, but instead the delight I take in her clothing descriptions. Rachel is a fashion designer of quirky clothes that I can only dream of affording. 

Many times, when you buy a clothing item, you stick it in your closet and then have to contemplate what the purpose of buying it was and where are you ever going to wear that again anyways? Well, luckily, Rachel was thinking one step ahead of us and all of her clothes instruct you exactly with what they should be used for. 

"Wear this over your bathing suit and get hella numbers at the beach."
"Wear this and play Mash with your coworker."
"Wear this on a chilly night at the beach while eating lobster."
"Wear this to a fancy restaurant and see what the reaction is."
"Wear this while cleaning your apartment."
"Join a softball league and wear this to practice. Cut off the sleeves if you get hot."

Love it. Thanks for the help, Rachel.

Lack-of-Labor Day.

I spent my day by seeing three movies (amongst other things) and they were delightful. 

1. Boyhood. 
Richard Linklater
I had actually already seen this at Cine, a week or two ago, but it was so incredible that I wanted to see it in theaters once more.

2. The Grand Budapest Hotel.
Wes Anderson
I went to Barnes and Noble this morning to spend a coupon and came out with a movie I hadn't gotten around to see yet. Trusting that it would be good, I bought it with 3 different discounts and watched it when I got home from Boyhood. It was so beautiful. And really funny. I loved the attention to clean lines that this film produced. Such a big fan.

3. Magic in the Moonlight.
Woody Allen
Emma Stone. Colin Firth. 1920s. South of France.
