I really am considering re-reading all of the Harry Potter books and while thinking about doing that I remembered The Tales of the Beadle Bard and the really amazing stories. And I thought that maybe it was about time to do another post dedicated to inspiration and life lessons. So I present to you two of my favorite tales read quite beautifully (aka not by me…I would have read them but I kinda can’t find my copy of the book), one of the tales you will most surely know and the other maybe not.
Up first The Tale of the Three Brothers:
Second (the one you may not know) The Fountain of Fair Fortune:
Now take from these what you will, but I find the stories and pretty much all of the Harry Potter books to be amazing lessons in life. So much so that if I ever got the balls and actually got a tattoo it would most definitely be of the Hallows…
Pretty cool right? I know!
Oh and I was going to make today’s post this big Golden Globes fashion post, but I wasn’t quite sure how to make a proper slide show and I really didn’t want it to turn into a whole best and worst dressed thing. Also to tell the complete truth I didn’t even watch the Golden Globes, mainly because I hate award shows. They inherently suck because they are long and boring most of the time. Plus like hell would I put up with Ricky Gervais. Am I alone in thinking that since he lost like a pound he became a bit of an asshole? I used to think he was funny, but now I just think he’s a dick.
Anywho even though I don’t like watching the shows I do like checking in for the clips and the clothes so I will do a mini version of what i intended.
Here we go…
Natalie won! And not only to she win, she also looked adorable getting her award and had a really cute funny speech. You can hear the speech here.
Highlights: When she reminded us that in Black Swan her fiance said he wouldn’t sleep with her and then laughed as she said “He’s such a good actor, he totally would sleep with me!” Also when she called Mila “sweet lips” Kunis.
Oh and Nat looked cute after the Globes as well…
Such a cute little baby bump. Go Nat!
Olivia had the best dress EVER!
I completely don’t care who agrees with me on this, cause I love this dress. Olivia always looks like a princess and I love it.
Helena Bonham Carter and Johnny Depp proved they were cooler that you by not giving a shit what you thought about their clothes…
I love individuals and I firmly believe that calling them anything but awesome means you just don’t get it. Say you hate what they wore and I am sure they will say in return “who gives a shit!” and I say to that RIGHT ON!
Mila looked great as usual…
The Christina’s brought the curvy hotness:
My inner 90′s kid cheered Claire on (she won!)…
Someone who always reminds me of Claire also looked amazing…
It Julia Stiles if you didn’t know.
Gabourey’s style got better…
But she could still take a lesson from this lovely lady…
Efron brought the hotness….
Michael Douglas looked amazing and made me super happy!
I’m not even a fan or anything I just like to hear about people kicking cancer’s ass. Catherine also looked fantastic. Also the joke Michael made about there being an easier way to get a standing ovation was awesome.
Also kudos to this girl for looking great while also looking her age, which as we have seen is easier said than done.
And last but not least my favorite person ever!
I love Rob because he is awesome and even more so because he took a very classy polite jab at that bastard Ricky Gervais. Someone really needs to tell that jackass there is a difference between poking fun at people and just being an ass. Oh an don’t tell me celebs have it coming! If you believe that I would like for you to have a big event and have some loser get up onstage in front of millions of people and make fun of you, then have cameras tape your reaction. Then tell me how fun that is…just sayin!
Oh and a totally different event but I love this dress so…
Dammit I tricked myself into doing a damn Golden Globes post anyway! Figures I would start and not be able to stop.
Anyway hope you enjoyed it. Remember learn from the lessons, which in a way the Golden Globes stuff can give some great lessons not just in fashion but also in life. We have someone beating the odds, someone handling a bully with grace, a girl dressing her age, and even two people daring to be individuals. Ha! So I guess it all does tie together.

Funny story: I haven’t started re-reading yet, but when I opened the book to take this picture I realized that apparently this is not my first time attempting to re-read the books. As evidenced by the fact that I still have a place holder marking page 18…didn’t get very far did I?
