Perhaps the ocean is calling, or maybe you are just aching for some quiet time at home. Whatever the weekend has in store, hopefully you get to enjoy a long three day weekend or simply time to forget about time for the next couple of days.

If you’re looking for a good movie to watch that doesn’t take up your entire afternoon or evening, I highly recommend Woody Allen’s Blue Jasmine. I finally had the opportunity to take in a matinee last weekend while in Portland, and Cate Blanchett’s performance is stunning (and on a styling note, the stylist was only given $50,000 for the entire cast – needless to say, you would never know such a limited budget existed).

And for your leisurely reading as the weekend begins, here is a look back on the past week’s blog posts . . .

  1. I will definately go to watch “Blue Jasmine” in an open air cinema. Last weekend of August the ideal night out.
