Five Things Friday

A week has come and gone. It went by so fast. I started my new job this week as a voice/piano teacher at the park district. It's really nice. My room is great! It's so spacious! I love it! I don't have many students yet but I'm sure I'll get more in the next couple of months.

Apple unveiled the new iPhone 5s & iPhone 5c this week. I can't talk because I have a MacBook Pro and an iPhone 4s, but they always keep coming out with new products constantly and lately they've been discontinuing products they just came out with. For example, the iPhone 5. They didn't say it directly but these new iPhones make the iPhone 5 obsolete. Why, because the new phones are pretty much the same thing with certain tweaks, it's a little faster, the camera is a little better. The only thing that's pretty awesome is the fingerprint sensor. That is definitely a cool feature. The thing that excites me the most is the iOS 7 update. It's available to anyone who has an iPhone 4 and up. They totally revamped everything! I'm excited because it's kind of like getting a new phone, in my case. That comes out on the 18th of September, two days before the new iPhones hit the store shelves.

Whew! Sorry for that little spiel. On to the five things!


1. Kitchen Tablet Holder from Mamie Jane's

Since we were on the topic of Apple, this seems so appropriate don't you think? I don't have an iPad but if I did, I would have so been making this, like yesterday! Jane's inspiration came from a Pottery Barn item very similar to this. I think it's gorgeous and perfect for someone who uses their iPad to look through and use recipes while working in the kitchen.

2. Sorrel Gold Leaf Charm Necklace and all jewelry from Milk + Crown

I discovered this lovely lady and her jewelry shop on Off Beat + Inspired They were have a giveaway of her jewelry (I think it's still going on so make sure you enter) and did an interview with her. Her jewelry is gorgeous and all hand made. I've gotta save a few bucks but once I do I'll definitely be buying this necklace. It's so petite and pretty! I love it!

3. Fantastic Beasts & Where To Find Them is going to be made into a   Movie 

If you don't already know me you should know that I am a HUGE  Harry Potter fan. I grew up reading Harry Potter so as the years went by I felt as if I was growing up with Harry Potter. (The books came out, or got really popular when I was 11, he was 11 when the first book started so I felt as if he was a best friend growing up) Watching the last movie was exciting and devastating at the same time. It was a great movie and yet at the end, it was all over. The official end of my childhood and the end of an era....or so I thought...

It was announced this week that J.K. Rowling and Warner Bros. are going to be making a movie based on "Fantastic Beasts & Where To Find Them" This is an actual book from The Harry Potter World and is mentioned in the Harry Potter books. The characters could take it out from the library and use it for studies, so it was really great when J.K. Rowling released it as a book.  

The fact that they're gonna make it into a movie is awesome. Will Harry Potter be in it? No. The book is set to 70 years before Harry Potter was born. But this is exciting regardless because the World of Harry Potter still reigns on and it's awesome! 


4. "You Need Me, I Don't Need You"  Polyvore Set by LadyWhimsy

Maybe it's because it's cold outside today (It's 64 F in Chicago today! It's freezing!!!) but this outfit looks so inviting! I just wanna jump into it. I love the boots, the purse and especially the sweater. Although I don't want summer to go, autumn is inevitably coming. 

5. Sherlock Holmes//John Watson Comparison from BuzzFeed

I found this article on BuzzFeed of these Sherlock & Watson photos from a blog (based in China actually; all the photos are from a Weibo account) comparing the different interpretations of Holmes and Watson from the Granada British TV Series of Sherlock Holmes, the BBC version of Sherlock Holmes and the infamous Guy Ritchie version starring Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law. I haven't seen much of the Granada version but I know it's a lot different from the other two just by the little that I've seen. The comparisons are utterly hilarious! I got hooked on the BBC version a couple of months ago and I can't wait until Season 3 comes out. Of course I love the Guy Ritchie version with Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law! Who wouldn't?! They're amazing! They have the perfect amount of action and comedic relief in them. Robert Downey Jr. is my absolute favorite! If that man wasn't already married with a child, I would be all up on that! Seriously! He, in my opinion, is the epitome of swag! Yeah that's right, SWAG! It's seeping out of his pores. Haha! Anyways I hope you all have a great weekend. I might end up at the thrift store today. We'll see. I'll leave you all with some lovely pictures of the BBC/RDJ versions of Sherlock. Hugs and Kisses! 


I know they aren't in character but I love this photo! They're so hot!
