Favorite movies.

So I kinda stole this idea from the College Prepster (she has the best posts!), but I loved it so I had to make my own list. I think someone’s favorite movies can say so much about them : ) Here are my top ten faves of all time… it was hard to choose but I eventually narrowed the list down.

Now, in no particular order…936full-the-princess-diaries-screenshotPrincess Diaries

Julie Andrews. That’s all. Oh, and Anne Hathaway is pretty fab, too.

bridget-jonesBridget Jone’s Diary

Also one of my favorite books, this movie is one of the funniest ever. And you can’t beat Colin Firth and Hugh Grant all in one spot!

little-women-2Little Women

Just like Jo, I have three sisters, too.  That’s why I love this movie so much. We watch it movie every Christmas break, and it’s magical every time. Such a classic (and it has an adorable, young Christian Bale!)

KobalMrs. Doubtfire

I grew up watching this movie – the scene where he has the mask made is so vivid in my mind! Robin Williams is the best.

236About a Boy

I watched this movie with my parents all the time when I was younger.  I didn’t really understand it then, but now it reminds me of when we lived in London.  It’s such a sweet, thoughtful story with a great cast.  And it’s so funny (“Single parents alone together!”)

Well, Anne Hathaway and Meryl Streep always kill it.  Everything about this movie is great. The soundtrack, the clothing, the scenery. This is another one I always see with my family.

Slumdog-MillionaireSlumdog Millionaire

I love India, and I have the biggest crush on Dev Patel, so naturally this movie makes the list.  And the soundtrack was so good – “Jai Ho”?! Best song of any movie of 2008.

nottinghillNotting Hill

 Julia Roberts, Hugh Grant, London, the weird roommate whose name I forget… all of these add up to one of the greatest romantic movies ever! When I looked at schools overseas with my dad, he took a picture of me in front of the bookstore in the movie.

SCHOOL-OF-ROCK702-300x185School of Rock

Okay, so not everyone thinks Jack Black is funny, but I think he’s hilarious.  And this movie is hilarious, too! And a good primer in rock 101, too.

UnknownLegally Blonde

I know I wrote before about how much I love Legally Blonde, but it truly is a classic. I could watch it over (and over and over) again, and Elle Woods’ shenanigans would never get old.  This movie inspired me to want to go to law school… but then I realized law school wasn’t really like this. Oh, well. Still one of my favorite movies : )

What are some of your favorite movies?!

Happy Friday!

I can’t believe Spring Break is almost over – after this, we only have six more weeks of school left before the summer. Crazy stuff.  Summer’s proximity not only means I have to start finding a job, I have to find the perfect pair of summer sandals as well : )

This year, I want to invest in a pair of Jack Rogers sandals. I’ve seen them everywhere for years – on all my favorite blogs, on Pinterest and on tumblr! I’ve always thought they’re adorable and add a classic touch to every outfit, and I’ve heard nothing but good things about them from friends who have a pair. JacksI’m torn between the Navajo and the Lauren, above. I also love the sorority Navajo in blue and pink (but knowing me, I probably couldn’t match those as well!)

Do you have a pair of Jack Rogers? What do you think about them? I’d love to hear!

6769_1033130047926_5271861_nI know I’ve posted this photo before, but it’s one of my favorites and just describes me and my sister Anna perfectly. Of course we were reading guide books and geography bee prep guides on the subway in NYC : – )

I have always, always been fascinated by other countries and people and places to explore.  Living in London as a child (fortunately) allowed me to travel pretty extensively with my family, at least for a 7-year-old.  I’m so grateful for the experiences I had exploring other countries and meeting people from all over.  On the flip side of this, though, I’ve suffered from wanderlust almost my entire life.  I would love nothing more than to drop out of school and fly (and sail) around the world, but that’s not really possible at the moment : )

I just found the most amazing Internet time-waster, though, which combines my love for geography with online quizzes – GeoGuessr! You’re shown photos of places (most of them are pretty unremarkable) and then you place a pin on a map of where you think it is. Most of the time I’m thousands of miles off, but it’s really interesting to see what places around the world look like. I’ll probably spend the rest of my break playing…it’s addicting!

What about you – do you love to travel and explore? What are some of your dream destinations?
