Lupita Nygong’o just received an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actress. Congratulations, Lupita! This young lady is certainly going places, and to top it all off, she is stunning!! Did you see that red dress at the Golden Globes! In the photo above, yellow truly becomes her, don’t you think? No matter what Lupita wears she looks gorgeous.

The beautiful and talented actress from 12 Years A Slave has truly made her mark on the film world. Let’s stay tuned to see what she does next.  I hope she takes home that well deserved Oscar.

Cyrano’s Kiss…

I love black and white movies, and decided to have a marathon last night, snuggled on the couch, with a bowl of kettle corn popcorn and a cocktail {or two!}. While comfortably fixed on TMC {Turner Classic Movies} “Johnny Eager” with Lana Turner and Robert Taylor came on.  In one scene, Lana Turner quotes Cyrano de Bergerac, a play, written by Edmond Rostand, which I haven’t read since high school.  I’m a bit of a romantic {the Aquarian in me}, and this quote Lana Turner’s character conveyed from memory just spoke to me:

“And what is a kiss, specifically? A pledge properly sealed, a promise seasoned to taste, a vow stamped with the immediacy of a lip, a rosy circle drawn around the verb ‘to love.’ A kiss is a message too intimate for the ear, infinity captured in the bee’s brief visit to a flower, secular communication with an aftertaste of heaven, the pulse rising from the heart to utter its name on a lover’s lip: ‘Forever.” 

This beautiful quote makes me want to read the book all over again.  I found a copy on Amazon for $4.56, I think I’ll treat myself

Here’s another beauty from Cyrano, I couldn’t resist posting:

“My heart always timidly hides itself behind my mind. I set out to bring down stars from the sky, then, for fear of ridicule, I stop and pick little flowers of eloquence.”

Cyrano de Bergerac

Romance at its absolute best! Written so eloquently by Edmond Rostand.

Have a Fabulous and Beautiful Monday!
