Vintage Luxe Heart Earrings & Jane Eyre

Last weekend I went on a Jane Eyre kick and watched a bunch of adaptations.

Toby Stephens and Ruth Wilson 2006
It was very satisfying and complete. Emotional enough for me to tear up once or twice. Since it was so long it is easy to get sucked in to their world.

Timothy Dalton 1983
I only scrubbed through this version on YouTube, but he's still quite enticing in his prime. I recognized him as Volkov from Chuck.

1997
The first adaptation I ever saw. Probably 5+ years ago so I don't remember much besides liking it.

2011
Mia Wasikowska as Jane and ­Michael Fassbender as Edward Rochester. In Theaters NOW! You might recognizer Mia from Alice in Wonderland...

I find that Rochester was not as tormented as in the other adaptations. He comes off as devilishly wicked & playful- which is fine by me! Probably the best acting, music, & cinematography of them all, but my eyes only watered up a couple of times and not enough to make tears. I don't know why. I think I had too many things on my mind! The chemistry is not lacking. The place where this falls behind the first adaptation I mentioned is the length. At 2 hours it's not enough to cover a 500 page book so I'm left wanting to see this and that. If you liked the artsy and updated Pride and Prejudice of 2005 you will enjoy this too (except it's not cheery, but Gothic). I highly recommend this! GOD I even want to see it again!!

The only bad thing about these movies is that they leave me in a romantic desperation!

Vintage Luxe Heart Earrings [shop]
A baroque swarovski crystal with a golden amethyst coating adds even more dimension to the sparkling crystals. It reflects green, blue, and pink.
14K gold-filled chain, sterling silver ear posts, gold-plated puffy heart studs.



Awhile back this was a custom piece for a special lady. You know who you are! :)

Oh and my Lizzy Earrings are back in stock! [shop]

While on amazon I noticed that Pride & Prejudice 2006 just price dropped to $10.49 for the blu ray version. It is so mine! I've been watching too much msfilli I think. GET IT

Also to reach the $25 free shipping I'm getting the new Strokes CD Angles. I'm old school and like to collect the physical cds!

AND some new headphones that are under $10 to work with my iPhone. Any opinions on skullcandy?
