(500) Days of Summer

BY Lisa in General

It's not very often the male and female leads in a movie are equally crush-worthy, making the sum of both parts totally off the swoon charts. Well, I got a sneak peek at (500) Days of Summer and lemme tell you what, it's hard to decide where to rest your eyes cause the cuteness between Zooey Deschanel and Joseph Gordon-Levitt is a constant battle.

Beyond Biba Trailer from November Films on Vimeo. I was super psyched to hear the news that a documentary has been made about my absolute all time fave 60's-70's design house, the influential and way ahead of it's time, Biba. The movie, Beyond Biba, is premiering in the UK this weekend, and I really do hope it makes it over to our shores. Biba was founded by Barbara Hulanicki and her husband in 1964, and quickly grew from a small mail order company to ... Read More
