Another weekend is here! I’m looking forward to checking out Market Collective tonight with some amazing local creative people, yin yoga tomorrow, and some down time on Sunday. I hope you have some fun things on the calendar too.

Downton Abbey movie trailer

I was a huge fan of Downton Abbey when I watched it on Netflix. I loved the writing, the characters, the setting, just about everything about it. I was pretty excited when I heard that they were working on a movie.

This week the trailer for the movie was released. It’ll be in theaters in September and you better believe that I’ll be splurging on a ticket to go see it. I saw an interview with Allen Leech, the actor who plays Tom in the show, and he was saying that to make the movie they wanted to make sure that they had the right story to tell. If they were going to make the transition from the small screen to the big screen, it had to be theatrical. I’m so glad that they waited until they had a story line that did justice to the original show. It’s so disappointing when reboots are done terribly (hello, Gilmore Girls).

Cover Girl Exhibitionist mascara

I bought a new to me mascara this weekend – Cover Girl’s Exhibitionist mascara (affiliate link). It was on sale at the store so I thought that I’d give it a try. I decided to go with the Very Black color.

I’ve worn it for a few days now and I’m really liking it so far. It’s not clumpy at all and it really makes my light eyelashes stand out. I also get some Burt’s Bee’s facial cleansing towelettes (affiliate link) while I was at the store because they were also on sale. I use them after I workout at the gym.

No Place to Hide

I’m currently reading No Place to Hide (affiliate link) by Glenn Greenwald. Glenn is a journalist, who along with Laura Pointras, broke the Edward Snowden story back in 2013. I had seen the documentary (Citizenfour),and I was intrigued when I found out that Glenn had written a book about it.

I’m about halfway through so far, and I had idea that the surveillance done by the US government and it’s closest allies (Canada, the UK, Australia, and New Zealand) was so widespread. If you’re looking for a more in depth look into what happened from one of the major players involved, make sure you check out No Place to Hide.

Are you a fan of Downton Abbey? Are you going to see the movie?
