Give a Little

Remember Hanson?
Those three adorable little boys?
Well, they grew into three handsome and incredibly talented men.
I am completely in love with this most recent video for their single "Give a Little."
To the point that I make believe I am in it!
Doesn't it look like such a fun party?
And I love the old couple making out!
You're welcome!

A Trip to Paris? Is that even a question?


As many of you know, I have been pining away for a European vacation for quite sometime. Reading a friend's blog today, I came across this give away, and decided that I would win it.
Call it my experiment on "The Secret," but I intend to collect this prize! Who wants to come with me? Just in case, let's all enter, and if someone else wins, you are taking me with you! Thanks!

Video Obsession

I am not the typical girl when it comes to thinking about weddings. I don't have my event planned out, nor have I ever sat and fantasized about it. However, I have an extraodinarily large number of friends who make their living through weddings in some form or another: photographers, makeup artists, florists, planners. And I have them to blame for my latest obsession: WEDDING VIDEOs.

They come in various form from the simple Super 8 style, to the grand sweeping Oscar worthy documentary. Here are some of my favorites. Watch, swoon, and savor.
You're Welcome.

First up is the epic Oscar Worthy Cinematography from my fellow High School Alumnus Kevin Shahinian, and his company Pacific Pictures.
This work is my favorite, and they even make mini-films about the couple that takes 4-5 days of shooting. . . as they say on their site, "Considering budgets from $20,000.00 (US) and up."
Here is a sample of their less expensive (starting at $4,800 ouch!) but equally stunning work!

On the polar opposite of the wedding video world, here is the simply sweet stop animation style from Tiger In a Jar.

I love. . . Love!



Just before bed last night, my darling best friend Jessica Hoffman texted me a link to a new website.
It was created for Tiffany & Co. and is called "What Makes Love True."


Tiffany & Co. teamed up with Ed Burns to create a documentary short about people in love in New York City.


Not only do I love the film, I love the website, the flow and the feel. (I'm especially obsessed with looking at beautiful websites these days as I'm working on redesigning my own.)


So take a look and enjoy a little bit of extra love today!
