Eat Pray Love in just one day

Are you tired of seeing this book cover? I’m not…yet. If you want my opinion, we are going to hear about this book for a very long time, heck there’s now holiday packages themed after this story.

I thought the movie was good (and the book even better). A well rounded chic flick with Gilbert’s wittiness thrown in. There are two scenes I particularly like: the opening scene to her India adventure. I loved the contrast between Italy and India and the music choice was perfect. This scene got my heart racing to head to India. The song was BOYZ by M.I.A. Have a listen, it will bring it all back.

The second scene, is her first experience in the meditation room at the ashram. We’ve all been there…time seems to stand still and the mind rambles on. Painful in more ways then one.

If you’d like to read a males take of the movie and the buzz it brought among he’s co-workers, check out Kyle Wells review on his Cinefile Blog.

Finally getting to the reason for this post. (See, it’s so easy to go on and on about this book.) Desiree Daniel a writer from Vancouver  documents her Eat Pray Love experience over the course of one day in this blog post on Granville Online.

take in a little GOOP

GOOP

I am so excited to share this, I haven’t had that good of a look at the site myself, but I love Gwyneth Paltrow and how subtle she is. GOOP is her take on lifestyle and meaning. The site has a real simple and clean design, just as life should be. Do sign up for the newsletter. I received my first a few day ago and can’t wait to try the recipe for the chocolate cupcakes.

The Girl Effect

Check out this website. Two really great things; the design and the message. It reminds me how important the work Greg Mortenson (Author of Three Cups of Tea) is doing for girls in the middle east. Education is essential for everyone, but unfortunately girls are neglected in many Third World countries.
