Smashbox Cosmic Celebrations Star Power Face + Eyeshadow Palette for Holiday 2019 launched today and that reminds me I re-watched Center Stage because I’m a dork. When I was 8 my mom watched Romeo and Juliet with me for the first time. My first crush was when I was 5 years old and it was on my friend’s older brother. His name was Max and I’d literally follow him all around the playground. I think that classifies as stalking nowadays! Ha! But my second and my third crush belong to Olivia Hussey and Leonard Whiting. I wanted to be Olivia Hussey when I grew up. She was so beautiful, so perfect, so Juliet! And Leonard Whiting with his captivating eyes and perfect smile! Swoon! I think that film was what made me the bookworm I am today. But the most important moral of this story is my mom knew how deeply I loved the film and took me to see Romeo and Juliet at Lincoln Center a few short months after and I fell in love again but this time with ballet. Growing up I never took a ballet class in my life but I was absolutely obsessed with it and again and again and again I begged my mother to take me to the ballet. I was blessed to see quite a few ballets in my youth including the Nutcracker, Swan Lake, La Bayadere, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, and many others in my adult life. I am a very proud American Ballet Theater Golden Circle Member in my older age and I can honestly say the magic of ballet is still as fresh as it was the first time I saw Romeo and Juliet.
Anyway, it’s Fall and in the Fall we watch Center Stage! Does anyone know if this got a Raspberry Award because truly it’s one of the worst movies ever but I do so enjoy it! The Smashbox Cosmic Celebrations Star Power Face + Eyeshadow Palette brought to mind Cosmic Girl by Jamiroquai because Jamiroquai woven through so damn much of that film. By the way who remembers when Jay Kay was on The Naked Chef? Ha! Anyway, every single Fall I sit down and I watch Center Stage because ballet…!!!!
See? You like my long-winded off topic stories dontcha? 🙂
