1. Don Jon, Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s latest movie, released last Friday. I saw it Wednesday and it was absolutely charming. And by charming, I mean JGL is hot. Smokin’ hot. Really, really hot. It is definitely a movie worth discussing at the next cocktail party you attend. Make sure you note the artistic qualities of the film, and the skill it takes to make an artistic film about a Jersey Shore character who watches porn. Check movie times here.
2. The United States government shut down! In case you hadn’t heard, the government shut down at midnight on October 1. Personally, I avoided social media at all costs because the political debate was nauseating. It was a hot topic all week long, with democrats and republicans, passionately agreeing, violently disagreeing, agreeing to disagree, and saying things they will regret come election time.
3. Target has been improving their stylish, fashion forward pieces. I am loving this pair of grey snakeskin heels, a tartan blazer, and I even snapped up this super-chic contrast collar dress at an amazing price. I might cut out the tags, or I might let go of the “cheap” stigma that comes with Target’s styles. Eh, okay, I’ll cut the tags.
4. IT’S OCTOBER! Pumpkin all the things! I am so excited to whip up a pumpkin soup, and love the recipe from Pippa Middleton’s book, Celebrate. Get the recipe from Parade Magazine or buy the book. You’ll be happy with the investment – it is brimming with seasonal recipes, crafts, decoration ideas and planning tips.
