Behind the Candelabra ft. Shopping

Yesterday was a pretty relaxing day, spent shopping with my mother, and then I went to see Behind the Candelabra with a couple of my best lady friends. Let's start with the latest purchases...


So in love with the flamingo print, American Apparel is always a winner in my book.

Onto the film review!

Before Elvis, before Elton John, Madonna and Lady Gaga, there was Liberace: virtuoso pianist, outrageous entertainer and flamboyant star of stage and television. A name synonymous with showmanship, extravagance and candelabras, he was a world-renowned performer with a flair that endeared him to his audiences and created a loyal fan base spanning his 40-year career. Liberace lived lavishly and embraced a lifestyle of excess both on and off stage. In summer 1977, handsome young stranger Scott Thorson walked into his dressing room and, despite their age difference and seemingly different worlds, the two embarked on a secretive five-year love affair. BEHIND THE CANDELABRA takes a behind-the-scenes look at their tempestuous relationship – from their first meeting backstage at the Las Vegas Hilton to their bitter and public break-up.

Admittedly, it was a lot darker and thought provoking than I initially thought it would be, judging from the trailer and what not, but I did enjoy it a lot! Definitely recommend that you should see it if you're into the fierce gay Queen kinda film genre. It is hard not to be, really.

In other news, I leave for New York in 1 week! So full of excitement and fear simultaneously. KSDHWJKEHGJKHDLGJHSG.

Moving swiftly on, here are some films I am looking forward to seeing when I am in the States:

This is the End

The Bling Ring

Until next time.
