We capped off our holiday season by catching Sherlock Holmes, which was exciting and entertaining. Rachel McAdams was perfect as an international jewel thief, con-artist, and Sherlock Holmes' love interest. Her brightly colored dresses- even her lip color- stood out in the otherwise gray canvas of the movie like her shoes and dress in the picture above.
You can read more about the very private Rachel McAdams in Vogue this month. She lives in Canada where she's from and leads an inspiring eco-friendly lifestyle. In fact, she started GreenIsSexy, a blog dedicated to green living, with a couple of her girlfriends. Her comments in Vogue convinced us she's our kind of woman. First a perfect day for her would be: "Get up. Go to the grocery store. Go out to the movies. Do a little work on the Web site." Sounds perfect!
And next she explains her philosophy on purchases: "I don't really desire things. I prefer to spend my money on experiences, on meals or travel." Us too, in fact we're busy planning trips to LA, Vail and Miami. Rest assured, there were trade-offs involved in making those happen; but we have no regrets.
