Random day.

And when I say random, I mean random. I got my nails done at Dashing Diva for lack of anything to do. (The lull before the storm?) I love how you can't go wrong with Dashing Diva. Their service is flawless and their tools are so clean! No complaints here. Oh yeah, please excuse my ugly, pudgy excuse of a hand.

Decided to try out this shade, I'm looking for a holiday color! I think this works out fine: it's just olive green normally, but when the light hits it, it turns golden. Think peridot. I like! I also had a pedicure, it's Malibu pink, but you're never going to catch me posting a photo of my feet. It's a legitimate insecurity, okay? But to celebrate a nice nail job, I went ahead and got some flats. This is me being reasonable.

Bought it at the cheap and reliable Charles and Keith. I think I have a new errand day footwear! :D

BUT THE BEST PART ABOUT TODAY WAS THIS FINDING THE NEW HARUKI MURAKAMI BOOK!

I was just on the way to the parking lot when I saw this on Fully Booked's display! I've been meaning to grab myself a copy for the past couple of weeks but it keeps slipping my mind. I'm so excited! I haven't read any reviews about it (consciously), so yes, no spoilers please, if you've read it!

This is how the spine looks like:

And when you open the sheer book jacket, it looks like this:

PRETTY. I've read most of his English-translated books, so far I still find South of the Border, West of the Sun (my favorite from his oeuvre) and The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle to be his strongest works. I want to be wowed by 1Q84, so yeah, reading this book with lots of expectation. Fingers crossed! Can't wait to plow through it; I always find Murakami's works transporting and meditative, even though I feel that I've genuinely outgrown his writing style quite a bit.

Anyway! Off I go to watch my copy of Jane Eyre! I've got some Fassbender-ing to do tonight. (He's so gorgeous, ugh.) And apparently, this is one of the better, if not best, interpretation of Jane Eyre. That's saying a lot, because there have been more than ten, if I remember correctly. Excited to hunker down in my bed and watch! <3

EDIT: I just finished it! It was amazing and atmospheric, and I would think it the closest film adaptation to what Charlotte Brontë envisioned in her writing. The coloring and cinematography aptly captured the gothic feel of the novel. The sinister way Michael Fassbender interpreted Rochester (with his bedroom eyes and the offhand smiles) and Mia Wasikowska harnessed the plain-ness yet hidden spark of Jane were just plain virtuoso. I don't think I can write a proper film review, because for one, I dislike writing them, and two, Jane Eyre was one of my favorite novels as a girl (it was one of those books that really opened my eyes to the wonders of literature) and consequently, I don't think I can be really objective about my love for this adaptation. 

It's probably one of my top three "period" films, along with Bright Star (dir. by Jane Campion), and the Joe Wright version of Pride and Prejudice. That's saying a lot, because I love those films to death.
