The Ruby Review: Crazy, Stupid, Love.


Crazy, Stupid, Love--3 stars

I expected this to become my new favorite movie. I am sad to say I was a little disappointed. Don't get me wrong, it was cute and all of the actors are incredible. I just found the general plot a little cliche and felt an underlying tone of sadness which is not in a romantic comedy, in my opinion. But disappointment aside, I enjoyed this movie. Steve Carell was funny, Julianne Moore was beautiful, and Emma Stone was Emma Stone; gorgeous, hilarious, and officially making her my new favorite female actor. But Ryan Gosling was, as usual, fantastic. The $10.50 was totally worth is just to see his swoon-worthy abs. And highlight would be the clothing throughout the film. Stone in her cute little lawyer outfits, Moore's Jcrew-esque work clothes and simple sweaters and scarves at home, and Gosling's over the top and perfect suits and ties. I don't know if I would recommend you run out and see it, but if you have a lazy day in these last few weeks of summer, go enjoy.

The (Not So) Weekly Six

(We hope that it will soon be weekly!)

Another of Kathy's super talented family members has a crazy wit about her. We send her black and whites and she makes the funniest and sassiest cards! These are a sample.1

We introduced a linen room a few weeks ago and the response has been tremendous! We have curtain panels, pillow cases, table cloths, quilts and well, you get it. When you look through pages of inspiring books and certain rooms speak to you, they usually have fabrics and texture that draw you in. Linens are one of the thriftiest ways to update and change the feel of a room!

The Ruby Review: Midnight in Paris

Midnight in Paris- 5 Stars

I very rarely rate a film with 5 stars, but this definitely deserves it. Good job, Woody Allen. Lets start with the actors. All amazing; handsome Owen Wilson and Adrian Brody, beautiful ladies Rachel McAdams and Marion Cotillard, and the über-talented Kathy Bates. This film has classic romance, always fascinating time-travel, and amazing recreations of some of the most famous and inspiring artists and writers of all time. This is a perfect movie for anyone who feels like they have been born in the wrong time, dreams about a romance in Paris, or appreciates art and literature. And like a good movie should be, it’s easy to follow and leaves you speechless. Get yourselves to a theater and enjoy a simply enchanting 88 minutes.
