You’ll probably think I’m a big crybaby, but I wasn’t made for the gloomy California weather we’ve been having lately. I spent the better part of my weekend trying to keep warm at home (hiding from the rain), watching favorite films and experimenting with jewelry.
The highlight of the dvds I watched was Pedro Almodóvar's ‘Volver’ (2006). Such a good film. If you’ve never seen it I highly recommend you do. It’s filled with strong endearing female characters. Penélope Cruz does a brilliant job as the hero of the story, I love how feisty and feminine her role is. Also love the big hair and her lip-syncing to the Estrella Morente cover of Carlos Gardel's 1935 classic ‘Volver’.
