Sweets, music and friends in Berlin

Friday, October 9, 2009

From my favorite confectionery store, Fugetsu-Do, located in the Downtown area of Los Angeles (They've switched to Fall colors):



Also, did I tell you that I went to see 'Whip it!' last weekend? It very much falls under the 'chic-flick' category but I recommend it highly! Drew Barrymore is adorable and so is Ellen Page, but the scene stealers for me were Zoe Bell and Juliette Lewis. I'm a huge fan of strong female role models. The film also has a great soundtrack. Jens Lekman to the Ramones... and this one here that I'd never heard before (beautiful!):



Lastly, if you happen to be in Berlin from the 10th of October through the 6th of December be sure to visit my dear friend Maggie... actually it's the work of the amazing Ofer Wolberger at the C|O Berlin. Details available *HERE*.



Wishing you a wonderful weekend! (I'll be back on Tuesday!!)

Hi Gabbi! Fugetsu-Do looks like they have delicious things! ...doctors orders are that I can not have anything solid for the next 2-3 days....do you think Fugetsu-Do would make me something liquid? hehe! Have a great weekend!

Ah, I just saw Whip-it too! I loved it. I don't think it's a chick flick, b/c it's very feministic and the girl doesn't end up with the boy. Most chick flicks have very humiliating messages for women...

lancelonie said...

May I have some of those treats?
You have a great weekend, too, Gabbi! :)

LENORENEVERMORE said...

Have a wonderful weekend Gabbi...

Winnie said...

Oh yummy, those sweets look delicious!

Kristin said...

Mmmmmm, Those look heavenly!

The Cottage Cheese said...

The candies are beautiful! I really want to see Whip It. I love that Ellen Page and Drew Barymore (and perhaps many of the other actresses) did all of their own stunts. Talented, beautiful, and tough!

Nubiasnonsense said...

Whip-it was great and those treats look yummy!

Jess said...

Keith said...

Hey there. I hope you've been enjoying the weekend. I've given your blog an award on my Sugar & Spice blog. It's in my latest post. Your blog is awesome. Cheers!

Emily said...

I saw Whip It this weekend and loved it! While very funny and endearing, I found the feminist attitude to be what stole the show. It's easily become one of my favorite films of the year :)

Taylor Sterling said...

Gabbi, Thanks for the visit! I love that music video! So pretty.

Sher said...

Oh lovely, sweet treats! I've not heard of Whip-it, gonna look out for that:)

ana b. said...

Another fantastic musical find! You are my music guru. Exquisite taste in music, my love.

I have to research this Whip It movie.

beckyxoxo said...

Hey Harriet said...

I just saw Whip-it today and loved it!!! I want out rush out and buy the soundtrack now. I also want to rummage around the op-shops (I think they're called thrift shops over there) for a pair of roller skates!

Down and Out Chic said...

hope you had a good weekend gabbi! the confectionery store looks yummy to say the least.

Electro Geisha said...

sweets look yummy, although i dont eat sweets, they look yummy and appealing...tnx for the movie recommendation, i will watch it as soon as it will be available for downloading...

Clorivak said...

Omy my my! those sweets are quite drool worthy, they look so amazing.

I'm glad to know this movie was good...I too like Drew and Ellen Page, Ellen used to live in the city I just moved from..you'd see her around at her fav restaurant and coffee shops. She's really cool. Its nice to see a local from Canada hitting it big in the movies for a change!

miriam said...

Thanks sweet Gabbi,
they start signing in as LENORENEVERMORE that's super creepy, I'm not computer savvy, but how could they register under the same name as mine?! well, hope we have a lovely day, shall we...

Mary-Laure said...

I really MUST get to Fugetsu-Do soon.

Funny, I was going to go see Whip It tonight with a friend - girls' night out of course.
