Marcel The Shell With Shoes On.

This charming little character Marcel The Shell was a sweet little surprise that I found in my inbox this morning from a friend. After falling in love with this little shell named Marcel I was dying with laughter at the brilliant concept and the simplicity of this tiny little character. I love Marcel.

Marcel the Shell With Shoes On is a Stop Motion animated short film  made by the collaborative efforts of writer/director Dean Fleischer-Camp and writer/actress Jenny Slate. The short is about Marcel, an anthropomorphic shell.

The film premiered theatrically at AFI FEST 2010 where it was awarded Best Animated Short  and was an official selection of the 2011 Sundance Film Festival. Enjoy! Christina XO

FOOD FOR THOUGHT

eggs.

Just wishing everyone a Happy Easter! Most importantly, a Happy long weekend…where you can all rest up, enjoy friends and family and eat lots of mini eggs! I always look forward to mini egg season, like a little kid I fish out the baby blue ones (my favorite color) and savour the taste of the milk chocolate melting in my mouth part. Whatever you do this weekend, be safe, laugh alot, and enjoy those around you. Oh and most importantly! Eat some yummy mini eggs. – Christina XO

FASHIONISTA FINDS

Happy Socks.

I am quite particular about my socks whether they be running socks, casual mid calf socks, knee-high socks, over the knee socks, tights or nylon socks. I’m particular about the material, the design, the colour, the texture and most importantly the quality. This year I have been slightly obsessed with “HAPPY SOCKS”.  Happy Socks are (by definition) “high quality socks. Since the cotton is combed before being spun into thread, the short fibres fall out, while the stronger and comfier long fibres stay in. The cotton is then woven in Italian knitting machines of the brand Lonati, famous for their high precision. The machines are computer controlled to ensure exact patterns, while the toe seams are sewn by hand to guarantee perfect fit. The hand linked toe seam ensures that there is no bulging overlap at the toe, but a perfectly smooth seam, making the sock fit your foot like a glove”.

There is nothing worse than buying a cheap pair of socks and 2 days later you have a hole in the heel. They don’t just come in black, navy, white, grey, BORING…They come in endless variety of models and designs, crossing a wide spectrum of colour combinations, materials and textures. Simply put: a pair of high-quality socks for every occasion, mindset and style. So the next time you need a pair of socks…..look out for Happy Socks! I guarantee they will make you smile. – Christina 🙂

RANDOMNESS

Airport Sightings.

There is nothing more fun than people watching at the airport, especially in Atlanta Georgia. I had some time to kill on my way home last weekend from a wonderful wedding. After flipping through the latest issue of In Style and casually glancing up at the people around me, I couldn’t help but notice a couple of characters in my view. This particular lady jumped out at me, she was doing some simple stretches for about 5 minutes before her flight. And Why Not?? Those seats aren’t the most comfortable. I wanted to take more but she started looking my way. That wouldn’t of been good. So the next time you forget a book, magazine or even your Ipod, look around , you have the best entertainment in front of you. – CS XO
