Classy Emma Watson

 

Emma Watson is so pretty! She has a gorgeous face. She is definitely more than just a pretty face though. She attended Brown University and is a great actress. We have all seen her in the Harry Potter series and she gave Hermione a face to the millions of readers and fans of Harry Potter.

Monarchy – The King Who Saved the Crown

The British royal family is one of the longest, still ruling monarchies in the world. They are an incredibly famous family and have a long standing history. I decided to watch a four part series simply titled, Monarchy. This is part one.

I am amazed that there is so much footage of Queen Elizabeth’s parents generation. There is a lot of footage of her as a child with her family. It’s really sweet to see her as a child and think of how much history she has witnessed in her many years of life.

Her father, Prince Albert, who as a King was known as King George VI, had his coronation filmed for the first time and it was screened in theaters around the country.

The events leading up to WWII are documented. The British people grew to love King George and his wife Queen Elizabeth I. They boosted morale and stood by their country. They refused to leave the palace even after a bombing. The Queen started a sewing group in the palace to set an example. The family also rode bicycles to save fuel and gave up some land on their estate to farm.

At 18 Princess Elizabeth joined the services and did her part. She volunteered as an ambulance driver and learned to maintain vehicles and was a competent mechanic.

King George’s brother, Prince Edward, the one who gave up the throne for love, moved to France and never again lived in the UK. This doc also went over his role during the war and his controversial visit to Germany.

After the war Princess Elizabeth and Prince Philip of Greece got married in a grand ceremony. She was just 21 years old. It also went through her early days of marriage and motherhood. She gave birth to the next heir, Prince Charles. Prince Philip continued working as a naval officer where he was stationed in Malta.

Sadly, Elizabeth’s father, King George VI had a short reign, dying after the end of the war, thus thrusting then Princess Elizabeth into the position of Queen.

Next Wednesday, I’ll review part two of the doc called Coronation Britain – Making of a Queen.

My Happiness Project: March Goals

gg63734732

March

  • Teeth Whitening
  • Floss Everyday
  • Focus on Skin Care (Wash My Face Every Night, Moisturize, Exfoliate, Sunscreen Daily, etc)

I decided that March should be the month that I take care of myself. I tend to get a little lazy sometimes when it comes to flossing and washing my face at night. I fall asleep on the couch some nights (earlier than I’d like to admit) and then I have no energy to fully get ready for bed.

But when I get ready for bed earlier I am more likely to be more thorough. So I’m going to make the effort this month to do what I need to before I get to the point of exhaustion.

I’ll keep you updated on how it goes at the end of this month. What goals are you currently working on?

30 Day Push Up Challenge

Another month, another 30 Day Challenge. This month I’m going to do the push up challenge.

I really like these 30 Day fitness Challenges because it’s reasonable, it’s a slow build up, and reminds me the importance of incorporating fitness into my day, and I like seeing changes in my abilities as the days go on.

Mindy Kaling

Mindy Kaling is by far one of my favorite actresses. She had funny one liners in The Office but since she started her own show this past fall, The Mindy Project on Fox, her personality has really shone through and she is beyond hilarious and I love her humor. I laugh out loud when I watch her show. If you haven’t read her book yet, do so immediately!

I lover how she dresses in real life and on the show. She looks great in bright colors especially hot pink. I also love her accessories.
