One Day.

Bernard Blue.
A story of my friend Bernard.

So today I had a pretty lazy day, I decided I would watch a movie and relax, while Henry went out to play with his friends.
After reading the book One Day way over a year ago I was still in awe of its beauty and captivating story. I became to know these characters well. They became apart of me, I was so wrapped up I was a none responsive zombie lost in the lives of Emma Morley and Dexter Mayhew for all of 48 hours (I worked full time back then too) Since, I have lost myself again and again. When I first heard they were making a movie I might have been a little excited, then I heard that the Emma would be played by Anne Hathaway, I felt as though this would be an injustice to my now dear friend. I wanted nothing more but to NEVER catch so much as a glimpse of this film. Months passed and I heard a few reviews, good and some bad. I felt a certain obligation as a true fan of this book to simply give it a go. This afternoon with the house all to myself, knowing I would most probably cry my little eyes out, I settled into One Day. The film wasn't all bad! Personally I wouldn't have cast Anne Hathaway at all, I felt with it being a British film a move deserving up and coming BRITISH actress could have portrayed Emma a lot better. Having said that the actor playing Dexter did capture him well. And yes I did cry, a lot! Films have that effect on me I'm afraid to say.
What I am trying to say is read the book, don't cop out and simply watch the film, experience this beautiful and heartbreaking love story the way David Nicholls intended it to be told.


During my many outbursts of tears I designed this little fellow. I thought I would branch out on my first collection and create even more accessories. This is just a prototype but I thought you guys should be the first to see it. This evening we popped out to our friend Mike for dinner, It was nice to see the boys cooking for a change while I relaxed and worked hard on perfecting these cute little bunnies. 
Tomorrow I will be posting a little teaser of my collection so far, oh and I have also got some great things in the pipeline for Blue Rinse!! 
Very Exciting things to come :)


Hope you all had a great start to your weekends I sure did.

  2. I hate when movies are made from my favorite books! The movie is never as good. My favorite book of all time was recently made into a movie and it was just awful. JESSICA ALBA played the main character who I always identified with so much and she is probably the worst person to play her. (The book is An Invisible Sign of My Own by Aimee Bender and the movie called An Invisible Sign). I'm glad you at least thought the movie was OK. Love your little blue bunny :)
