What Would She Wear: Lourdes Maria

          The eldest daughter of the queen of pop Madonna is only 16 and has already adopted a sense of style considered fashionable and also grunge. Since she has started working with her mother in the well-known Material Girl at Macy's, Lourdes has been seen wearing various clothing pieces that are very inspiring!

We can see that the teenage likes to invest on jeans, boots & wild accessories.

However when it comes to events, Lourdes surely knows how to give her style even more glam, although she doesn't let go of her rock n' roll style! I'm sure we can get inspired by them!

Book & Movie: Memoirs of a Geisha

          Directed by Rob Marshall, the original story created by Arthur Golden ''Memoirs of a Geisha'' has surprised many. Demonstrating the real life in Japan after World War II, we learn how many girls had to live in a world completely different from home.
          After being sold to a geisha district in Japan by her father, a fisherman, young Chiyo, with different and  peculiar eyes, is forced to work on the okiya - geisha house - she was sent to, while receiving humiliations from those around her, especially Hatsumomo. But for her own luck, she came across a generous man, who she wishes to come across again. 
          During her cruel adolescence up until she became a full geisha highly admired and desired by many, Chiyo had proven she was capable of anything to get away from the disturbing and poor situations she was living through. Showing her courage and great will, she finally get rid of Hatsumomo, her rival.
          Although the film generated polemics for having Chinese actors in a Japanese story, the readers did not have any disappointment, for the actress and protagonist Zhang Ziyi new exactly how to become a geisha on the inside and out, making the production even more realistic and surprising. 

          Personally, Memoirs of a Geisha is the best book I have ever read, for it contains so many surprising moments with mysteries. I highly recommend it for I absolutely love everything about it!
