Watch it Wednesday: Grace Helbig

 Hey yo! How are you beautiful creatures of the forests? (whatever...)

So... Today is the day for another Watch it Wednesday!!! wooop wooop (celebrating)

And Grace Helbig is that great choice for this... she is amazing in every way you can think of... and I don´t think that you hadn´t met her yet because is a big deal right now... is like Chelsea Handler, but prettier, younger and more original, if you ask me.

If you know who she is and have watched her videos on Youtube already you know what am I saying. She starts with her channel on Youtube and then she wrote a book, was performing on Camp Takota and Hey USA with Mamrie Hart, has her podcast. I mean she has already done everything, and she deserves it, because she is doing it great, she is so funny and constant by achieving all of her goals.

And now she is taking the T.V. because is the new E! star... she took kind of what she is doing on Youtube to her own show where she is interviewing and chatting, drinking, joking around and stuff, with other comedians, actors and youtubers. That´s awsome, although I think the first episode wasn´t that fun like how I was expecting but I supposed like... the nervous and things... because it was so flat to me... I don´t know (quoting her)... at the end... she eis amazing, you should watch all of her stuff and subscribe to her... and maybe on Friday just give her a shot on E!

 Don´t forget to comment on the section below, and... yeah... luv ya! XOX

"What a Week" Weekend: What happens in Vegas...

What up... what up... what up!

How are you, you beautiful creatures?!

So today I will present you my first "What a Week" Weekend... and this section is for me to tell you, inform you, show you, what happened on my week... buuut, just because on my week I didn´t have anything important to write about until my weekend I decided that, for today, I will totally change it for a "What a Weekend" Week... if that is even a thing... IDK.

So... this weekend was A-ma-zinggggg!
Is not for me to brag about it, at all... but I went to Las Vegas for my very first time... and probably you are like: "Gurl... I do that every weekend!", or "Gurl... I live in Vegas!" but for me it was a big deal, I was very excited about it and everything turn out pretty well.

I went just for 3 days and , of course, it wasn´t enough, but I managed to watch almost "everything" that Vegas could offer to my expectations that were actually fill. 

On the first day, I went to David Copperfield´s show... and let me tell you, it was amazing! I ´ve never seen something like that, ever. He literally (not literally) blows your mind!

The second day I went along the Las Vegas Strip, not all of it because is too huge, but I think I went for a half... since the Planet Hollywood Hotel to the MGM. It was so insane! Every hotel has its own attraction, casino and mall... so I had to walk inside each one to have the experience, you know.

The Venetian
The third day I went for the other half from the Bellagio hotel to the Fashion Show Mall, I was exhausted but I wanted more! (like an addict). Although, I didn´t went more for shopping, I was like: "I don´t have enough time to fool around and try the clothes on, in every store of Vegas"... so... I was more into taking pics and looking around. Also, I went to the Las Vegas North Premium Outlet, and it was ok... I mean, it was under construction or make over a big part of it so... bad idea for me to go there.

Anyway, on the last day I didn´t have much time, because I had to be at the airport at 4 (sort of), so I just went to the Luxor, Mandalay and New York New York hotel... and I really love them all... obviously New York and Paris were my favourites because I´m kind of obsessed with those cities (including London and lately L.A.).
New York New York

So... yeah, that was my weekend, I couldn´t go to the old Vegas, sadly, but I will have it on mind for the next time... that will be... hopefully soon.

Thank you for reading, leave your comments if you want... and hope you enjoy it.

Build your dreams and live them! xoxo.

Mexican Sunday: Tacos!

Helloooo smiley faces!

Today is Sunday... wooop wooop, and that just mean three important things that are clear today:
1) You are resting, chilling and relaxing (probably)
2) Tomorrow is Monday... so that is not cool at all, unless you are a freak who loves Mondays because... I mean... that never happens
3) Today is Mexican Sunday!!!! what brings a bit more fun to the day.

Mexican Sunday will be the space where I´m gonna talk a bit about my culture (As you know I´m mexican, if you don´t know go an read the segment "About Me" but after finish reading this). And that includes weird phrases or words that mexicans often use, traditional candies and food, and also places that I know that you should know because are magnificent (yeah, that´s today´s new word).

So... let´s talk about "Tacos"!
Of course the y have to be the first thing to talk about, and just to clarify, TACOS are not what you think they are. (crazy... isn´t it?)

I don´t know who the hell told you that a folded down tostada was actually a taco, but it´s not... the taco is the amazing and simplistic art of grabbing a tortilla (simple and normal tortilla) and fill it with any food or meat that you want. You can have: chicken, steak, fish or any meat tacos, lettuce with lemon tacos, avocado tacos (as simplistic as it seems, these are the best!), salty tacos, rice tacos, bean tacos, meatballs tacos, mashed potato tacos... and others.

And for those brave enough to try weird things that mexican love (not me, but the mayority does) also exists: tacos de cabeza (the meat of a pig or cow´s head), tacos de lengua (the tongue of the animal) tacos de tripas (the intestins of the animal), tacos de barbacoa (most of the times is the meat of a sheep or goat).

All of those tacos could be fried (tacos dorados) that also have cheese, sour cream and lettuce (&&& salsa of course), or just normal with lemon, salsa, onion and coriander.

Also, and before finishing this, I want to say that quesadillas are not tacos...

I hope you like it and don´t forget to leave your comments and suggests about anything that you need to know about mexican culture or whatever.

Luv ya! xoxo

Movie Monday: Guten Tag Ramon

Yeah Yeah... you know what day it is?
 Today is Monday (you might be thinking: "tell me something new Giulietta") well is #MovieMonday... Woop woop!

Actually, is kind of what I tried to do with this... I tried to give a little bit more "love" to Mondays... because everybody (EVERY-BO-DY) hate them... so, I mixed my favourite thing to do, watching films, with my least favourite day of the week.

Well, (¬¬) after this creative explanation, let´s start with this "review/ critic", shall we?

Last week I watched "Guten Tag Ramón", I don´t know if you have heard of it already, but if you haven´t yet is time to start looking for it.

This is a Mexican/ German film, about a Mexican guy that, tired of a bad economy and the lack of job try to go to the U.S., as an immigrant, so many times without achieving it. And before giving up a friend of his encourage him to ask for his passport and travel to Germany, where he has an aunt.

This film has the perspective of those who search a way to help their family, no matter what and no matter how, even defying the idiom/ language limitations, the lack of money and any kind of insurance on a far country, without any knowledge of the law, traditions nor education, but just hope in their hearts to find what they are looking for.

I really enjoyed the movie, and is not that dramatic to poin out, so if you have time you should give it a try, and I am sure you won´t regret it.

Key words: A love story doesn´t have to have a couple as the center of the content.

Movie Monday: The Grand Budapest Hotel

On this Movie Monday, and as it says on the tittle, I will talk (write) about The Grand Budapest Hotel.

 I was chilling out this weekend, keeping it simple, you know, when my mom encourage me to watch a film.

As I couldn't watch it on movie theatres I was all in with the "Grand" idea of watching this amazing film directed by Wes Anderson whom, by the way, I've been loving since I watched Moonrise Kingdom.

What I enjoyed the most, I think that was the "innovating" idea around the story, that is actually narrated and presented as the story inside a story inside a story. 

Also, having such a big and well known cast helped it to impulse the movie, actors as Ralph Fiennes, Saoirse Ronan, Jude Law, Bill Murray, SAdrien Brody, Tilda Swinton, and an amzing performance of Tony Revolori.

Not only the photography is outstanding, but also the costumes are temporarily correct, and they were incredible, completely vintage and, talking for myself, kind of churrigueresque.

I totally recommend, not just for the story on its own, but also if you love this sarcastic/ ironic kind of comedy I know you're gonna love it. 

So, that's all for today. Also if you want me to watch another film that you recommend me I will be so glad to talk (write) about it.

Let´s start!... again

I dont know if you´ve noticed yet, but I´ve changed the whole presentation of my Blog, because... well I have like a bunch of reasons but mainly because I thought that what I was doing in here (at the beginnig) doesn´t go with my ideas and I needed a new and fresh start.

In some way, I was trying to be something that, no matter how much interest I have on fashion, well those are not the things that I want to focus on. There´s a lot of things that I actually appreciate much more than fashion, and actually I don´t think that I dress properly or trendy to be trustfull in that topic.

Actually, I rather do photography or go to the movies and relax with music, more than be aware of Fashion, but also I don´t think that I´m that kind of girl that pretend to be intelectual and sarcastic and a video games lover just because is to mainstream being femenin, that´s rubbish.

Wow... it seems like a #ThursdayConfessions (and probably it is).

Finally, this changes came with a lot of compromise from me to you, basically to write more and to be more in touch with you, and for that I have created a few sections that will help me to organize and keep this in movement.

This sections (that I will explain to you in my firsts posts of each) are:
- Mexican Sunday
- Behind the Pic
- Non Daily News
- Watch it Wednesday
- "What a Week" Weekend
- Movie Monday
-Beautiful People

Valentine´s Day "haters gonna hate"

Oh February!, the month of love. Everybody is with his soul and heart and poor of those who doesn´t have anyone to share a fancy dinner this saturday. Not seriously, no.

As you know this is the most romantic month of the year, o maybe you are one of those who blame on the publicity and the obsession for merchandise everything just after Xmas, that makes us buy everything for our "honey bunnies". But... I mean our  pockets are not even recovering yet!

So, whether you are in a relationship loving the hell out of this romantic month, or your are single and ready to mingle. I prepare for you a "Giulietta hates love... kind of" list of films.

5.- He's Just Not That Into You
This Ken Kwapis´ film that kind of goes along with Valentine´s Day, New Year´s Eve, and even Love Actually type of story that show a bunch of amazing actors in a whole bunch of stories that, at some point, converge in to a main important one. It sure be also a lovestory, but just because the fail in a few couples, the friendzone and the adultery topic, is kind of a down with love example.

4.- Alfie
One of the most important movies on Jude Law´s career, I think, because was the one that colocated him in to a dandy/ sexy guy that can have all the girls that he wants and is a love free story. Sex without feelings until... well You´ve got to watch it.

3.- 500 days of Summer 
Just like what the beginning of the film says, "this is not a lovestory", and is not. Ithink Mark Webb has done an amazing job with the movie, is like a scream of hope for those that hav had their heart broken and cann´t find the reason of it. Zooey Deschanel as incredible as always has a believable chemistry with Joseph Gorden Levitt.

2.- Anna Karenina
A Joe Wright´s movie will always be dramatic and sensitive. And if you have read the book you may know what I´m talking about when I say that it´s the perfect description of it. If haven´t read it, well, what are you waiting for? (just kidding) Without telling you too much I just wanna add how much you fall in love with this desired/ passionate/ lovable story. Keira Knightly have never let us down.

1.- Blue Valentine
This film is directed by Derek Cianfrance and protagonized by Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams. And you may, or may not think what I thought when I was about to watch it, but I thought that, with Ryan Gosling as the father of romanticism on The Notebook, that it was going to be a really lovable story. It has its moments of love but is actually the opposite of what I was expecting. Even with that I think is a dead incredible story and very much realistic.

Michael Cera

I was watching Nick and Norah´s last night and I was thinking how addicted I was to his movies. And everything started with Scott Pilgrim vs. the world, I don´t know why but I loved that movie, actually I know... it was more than the ridiculous but hilarious and original story, and his performance... is just that he is always playing this unattractive, awkward, ironic, funny guy that could charm anybody and he really does it.
I think this Canadian guy is representing this weird generation when we don´t have to have this perfect stereotype to be the main character of the story. Is, basically, more touchable and believable, a bunch of stories that can influence our reality.

In fact, I hadn´t had seen Nick and Norah´s until yesterday and I found it awesome, even the soundtrack is great. Is the acid humour that characterise his style in every movie that he has done.
So I think that´s the reason why he is the addiction of this Sunday.

Zombie Apocalypse... could happen

The Walking Dead, The last of us, Resident Evil, World War Z, Rec, 28 days later, Dawn of the deads, I am legend... even Warm bodies.

Seems like everybody want us to be prepared for the upcoming Zombie Apocalypse, because that´s the main purpouse of those movies and games, isn´t it? And, actually, is kind of ironic that in every movie, all the characters  are not trained or they don´t even know the basic stuff of a zombie, how to kill them,  how

I am not kidding... or maybe I am, actually, but if that happened we have to be ready and steady.

So, I´ve been thinking about the steps or waht to do when that day arrive.

First things first... Is kind of mandatory, we have to watch at least 2 movies about zombies to know that: You can´t kill walkers by shooting at them, unless is on the head, shooting or hitting, but it has to be on the head, if it´s in other place... man you are wasting energy, time and probably bullets, that won´t work at all.

Now, zombies are really slow, like insanely slow... so, you don´t have to get tired for no reason... easily if you see one of them really far you´ll have time to find a covert and finish a book or something. Seriously, in every single movie people get killed just because when they see a zombie miles away start feeling nervous and run making a lot of noise and they fall and die, at some point.

How could you turn into a Zombie?.. this is, in fact, the essential info you will need. Don´t let them bite you! or even scratch you, for the matter. Run as fast as you can, kill them, but don´t lete them catch you, or you will have to cut your arm o something to stop the process.

Finally a few tips: 
* Don´t be alone... is just not because is sad, is actually for you own safety, you need people ande the right ones, those that can save you if you are in troubles, may be somen with arrows and guns.
* Don´t shoot unless is strictly necessary.
* Keep knives, forks, and pointy things on a safe place, but also near you in case you just wake up and suddenly is the Zombie Apocalypse.
 * Start (and by start I mean right now) looking for coverts and a few ways for you to escape in a zombie situation.

So that is everything for tonight, hope you like it, and wether you like it or not just leave your thoughts or critics for me to grow... peace!
