‘Original sin – Pecado Original’


To keep in with this week’s spanish theme, I’ve chosen one of my all time favourite movies, not just because the main female character is one of my most loved actresses but because this love story brings to life those feelings which most of us are uncomfortable to admit we have … addiction to the person we love.

Original sin… Pecado original

Director: Michael Cristofer

Writers: Cornell Woolrich (novel), Michael Cristofer

Lead actors: Angelina Jolie, Antonio Banderas

2001 Drama, Romance

If you ever been truly in love…and I mean, when you feel you cannot breath without the other person, when you desperately try to imagine how your life would be without them, when you feel their joy and pain with them… when you feel truly addicted to that person, than this movie will make sense.

I watched it so many times and each time it brings to life the same pain and happiness, anger and forgiveness, love and addictive desire.

Luis and Julia are bound by marriage but their relationship quickly becomes driven by lust and desire, uncontrollable passion.

Everything starts with a lie… and I think this is one of the painful realities that this story brings to us… love, sometimes has to outlive tremendous pain and forgiveness to be able to survive and thrive to be eternal.

Julia seems more enigmatic as Luis gets closer, but then again, that is human nature, more people try to get to know us, more we build that wall that we think it protects from all the pain and sorrow.

The truth is… more we hide, more we lose time and the opportunity to find what we are meant to have and enjoy.

The story goes from a need to share to passion and love, ending in wild obsession… but who are we to judge what is real love?

Embark with me and let your senses free… open your mind and let your eyes be blind:)

Enjoy watching this movie!

I always loved high-waisted trousers and never really was bothered if they were in fashion or not.

Looking around I found some really stylish ones on http://www.asos.com, http://www.next.co.uk and http://www.hm.com.

Most of them come in a slim and skinny cut, which gives some really nice curves to your body shape…as I say, just make it look delicious:)

What’s even better is that they look amazingly trendy and smart at the same time or just playful and party ready with the right accessories.

If you have them forgotten in the back of your wardrobe, take them out now…or if you’ve thought to have a pair from this spring, stop thinking about them and go and find the right ones for you!

What does your t-shirt says?

I knew, the moment I saw that ‘happy’ top on http://www.bonprix.co.uk, I so want that…not just because I feel happy and I want everyone to know it but you have to admit it, it looks cute.

For all the animal lovers out there, I am pretty sure you own one top with a sweet pet print:)…wear it!

Be who you really are and let people see that…clothing is just an extension of your personality!

I know, I know…just couldn’t help myself, but what does work and has great effect are high heels, two-tone – this year; oversized open cardigans and put together with a denim look.

I found these absolute amazing looking pieces on http://www.laredoute.co.uk and http://www.johnlewis.com.

There is something about a great pair of high-waisted skinny jeans and high block heels:)

I think I will just open my closet, get dressed and take this fashion trend for a walk!

Have a stylish week everyone!
