I have so much fun news to talk about this week, darlings.
In some Happy Birthday news, baby Fiona the hippo at the Cincinnati zoo turned one! I love animals and this hippo is just darling! I don’t know if you’ve followed Fiona’s story, but she was born dangerously underweight and premature last year and now she is doing splendidly. She is so so cute and if you want a good pick me up watch one of her adorable videos by clicking here.
I don’t know if any of you are “Keeping up with the Kardashian” followers, but Kim Kardashian just added another baby to her family. The little girl was born via a surrogate and Kardashian and her husband Kanye West named the little girl Chicago. Reports are they going to call her “Chi” pronounced “Shy.” I mean I love my Chicago, but I don’t know about naming a baby after the city. Then again, to each his own when it comes to naming children. It can be such a hard task don’t you agree? What were some of your thoughts when you were naming your children?
The SAG Awards are tomorrow and of course that means a red carpet and more stunning fashion! Is there any better way to spend a Sunday afternoon than just watching a parade of gorgeous dresses? I am still hoping for some wins for my favorite movie so far this year, “The Shape of Water.” I haven’t had a chance to see a lot of the other contenders yet. What were some of your favorites that are nominated for awards this season?
Speaking of movies Cosmopolitan did something very interesting and put together a slideshow of actors who turned down famous roles. Did you know Gwyneth Paltrow could have played Rose from “Titanic” instead of Kate Winslett. I personally think that Winslett was the right choice for the iconic role. You can see the whole slideshow by clicking here. It was very interesting.
We all know sleep is important right, darlings? But I was just reading an article in Prevention that said researchers have found a link between not getting eight hours of sleep and having anxiety. Give the whole article a read here.
Royal wedding news also continues! E! reported that Meghan Markle has chosen her wedding dress designer and an insider said she wanted to “wear something simple and classy and very elegant.” They didn’t actually release the name of the designer yet and I can’t wait to hear!
I hope you are using this weekend to recharge your batteries, dear readers. I know I’m looking forward to a little down time. What do you have in store for the week? Leave a note in the comments or send me a message on Facebook.
