Our Person Obsession

belle03None other than Camilla Belle. This young woman with Portuguese descendant (but really half Brazilian) is only 22 years old and she makes a bold statement with her eyebrows (literally because her brows are so BOLD). I do not agree with others who claim that it was her eyebrows that made her famous, but it definitely made her more unique than others. She’s one helluva girl who holds a certain amount of sophistication, class and sexiness without any effort. She’s a natural for sure. And she’s dating Joe Jonas. For real. And she has style, along with a very pretty face and a skinny tall frame. Fricking hot.

Wilfred.

logo

Date: Feb, 2006 (when the brand first launched)
Setting: Aritzia, Vancouver (sold exclusively at)
Key Event: Jemma laid eyes on Wilfred for the very first time and immediately fell in love
Reason: Wilfred’s Cashmere & Virgin Wool Coat (in every color)

Wilfred is an in-house clothing brand sold exclusively at the Vancouver based retail store and the designer behind this brilliancy is Tenille Magnuson (age 23 – 35 with a career based mind but creative and style conscious, just like her targeted customers). She is also the brain juice behind the Talbula Babaton line – one designer for two lines in the same store? No worries, there are visible differences between the two, Wilfred is more tailored towards our fashion-forward girlies whereas Talula is more on the professional side,, fashion forward it is!

Recently (like a few days ago), they launched a website for this baby. I love Wilfred, he’s the best and you got to see it to believe it. His looks are great for any body shape and are incredibly comfy and can be dressed up or down. God, so many perfect qualities, I might even marry him.

Burgers anyone?

Okay. So, I know most of our PP girls are on a strict no-carb, no-sugar, no-salt, no-meat..or just altogether, no-food, diet. But I’d like to express my love for gourmet burgers even in this completely inappropriate time as summer hits us in just 2 months. And I think that it is totally legit because the places I recommend are only the best and probably worth your every carb quota (or food quota for anorexic’s sake).

b11. MOS Burger ($/$$$)*
Absolutely the best Japanese fusion burger on the planet of fast food. Everything on their menu is good stuff, from teriyaki rice burgers, fried shrimp patties, saku saku and avocado chicken to their thick fries and popcorn shrimp. DROOLS.

b22. Burgeroom ($$/$$$)
So they have huge ass burgers and you can choose different loads of expensive shit in them (such as: lobster, king crab, soft shell crab, etc.). But the best part is you can add a fried egg in your burger and it is absolute heaven. And because of the running egg yolk down the sesame bun, tofu patty (Jemma’s a half veggie) and loads of tomato, it marks the place where Jemma falls in love with gourmet burgers.

b33. Gourmet Burger Union ($$$/$$$)
This was where Lucy and Jemma had their first burger meal together (everybody all together: awwwweee). GBU, aka DYI your own burger, lets you add whatever you want in whatever weird burger combination you can think of. It fulfills any bizarre burger fetish you have and does it deliciously. P.S. you can choose your own buns too!

I’m going to stop at 3. Because it’s bad for my diet.

* For all our PP girls who are saving up for yet another Chanel wallet (like Jemma is, but this time, a classic one, oh and in black), I have included price ranges for your convenience. FYI, even $$$ really isn’t that expensive so indulge away ladies!

We are so into “he’s just not that into you”

hesjustnotthatintoyouLucy and I indulged ourselves into the whole “He’s Just Not That Into You” (the movie) craze. And yes, we have become victims ourselves. Hardcore victims (at least for Jemma). I cannot stop thinking about how incredibly annoying Gigi was with her obsession over chasing guys for phone calls, or about how amazingly sexy Ben (Bradley Cooper) was, or how charismatic Jennifer Aniston was as a character in the story and as herself in general, OR how sweet Alex was to Gigi in the end (all that the leading man realizes his true love is the leading lady kinda thing). It’s been 3 days already and I’m still having the He’s Just Not That Into You hangover.

So, in order to continue to dwell myself into movie for as long as possible, I’ve come to search up PP’s favorite quotes from the movie. It’s totally awesome.

Mary: I had this guy leave me a voicemail at work, so I called him at home, and then he emailed me to my BlackBerry, and so I texted to his cell, and now you just have to go around checking all these different portals just to get rejected by seven different technologies. It’s exhausting.

Anna: You have an ass that makes me wanna dry hump!
Ben: Did you just say ‘Dry hump’?
Anna: Yep.
Ben: I think I just fell in love.

Alex: I really gotta go to bed.
Gigi: Is that an invitation?
Alex: What?
Gigi: Oh god, That was cheesy.

Mary: He MySpaced me.
Nathan: Ouch!
Mary: Oh.
Joshua: Oh girl I don’t know about that… My trampy little sister says MySpace is the new booty call.
(BTW: PP LOVES JOSHUA – Leonardo Nam, we’ve seen him in other movies before, Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants for example, and he is absolutely someone to look out for!)

And this, I find as the most inspirational….
Gigi: Girls are taught a lot of stuff growing up: if a guy punches you he likes you, never try to trim your own bangs, and someday you will meet a wonderful guy and get your very own happy ending. Every movie we see, every story we’re told implores us to wait for it, the third act twist, the unexpected declaration of love, the exception to the rule. But sometimes we’re so focused on finding our happy ending we don’t learn how to read the signs. How to tell from the ones who want us and the ones who don’t, the ones who will stay and the ones who will leave. And maybe a happy ending doesn’t include a guy, maybe it’s you, on your own, picking up the pieces and starting over, freeing yourself up for something better in the future. Maybe the happy ending is just moving on. Or maybe the happy ending is this, knowing after all the unreturned phone calls, broken-hearts, through the blunders and misread signals, through all the pain and embarrassment you never gave up hope.

This is just plain out awesome dude..
African Woman #1: I’m sure he just forgot your hut number!
African Woman #2: Or was eaten by a lion.
African Woman #3: You guys are awesome!

This movie is totally 110% PP approved and 300% PP recommended.
Lucy said it’s even comparable to Sex and The City (and Lucy is a huge huge GIGANTIC SATC fan, so for her saying that basically means if you don’t watch this movie your kinda pathetic.) Happy watching!

Jealousy of the Ex

We stalk them, we pry into our boyfriends’ past, we sneak email peeks, and we wanna know everything about them.  It’s pretty obvious that we’re better looking, smarter, sexier, more confident, have better taste, have better friends, have a better career, have a brighter future, have more money and are better in bed then them (don’t tell me how i gossip-girl-spoilers-photo-fightknow coz i just know), but we still gotta feel that awful feeling inside when we envision the happy past they had together, EVEN THOUGH WE OBVIOUSLY ARE THE WINNERS because (hello?!) … we have the boy.  If you’re like pessimistic dwell-in-misery lucy, its impossible to be the bigger person and just look on the bright side.  But dude, jealousy can only exist for so long before it gets annoying and becomes stupidity.  Cause you never want your boy to think you’re annoying (a.k.a. associating you with mom).  So your boyfriend had a past…that existed without you…GET OVER IT.  Here’s how:

1. Come prepared into any relationship with bitchy friends.  Whenever Lucy bitches about the sweet little ex, Jemma will totally be like…”If we bump into her I will look her down then straight right ignore her. I’m on your side you know.  I’m totally on your side.  And just so you know, I’m not afraid of slapping people”.

2. Review the opponent with your bitchy friends.  If Lucy moans to Jemma “Well, honestly i don’ t think she’s that great but I guess shes not bad cause he thinks she’s cute…”, Jemma will not hesitate to stop you right there “BITCH LOOKS LIKE A MAN!”

3. Have bitchy friends that boost your self-esteem.  When in the fitting room Lucy wonders if she looks hot and hotter then Ms.Ex in that cute outfit, Jemma comes again “you’d look hotter then her wearing garbage.  Fashion is measured by style you know, blake-leighton-rolling-stonenot by the pound…which she definitely does have many.”

4. Be nice to your bf with the help of your bfs (bitchy friends).  Don’t emphasize your jealousy to your boyfriend.  Good friends will offer to take the load off his shoulders to make him adore you more.  “Lucy, if you need to bitch you can call me.  For everything else, don’t.  I’m a very busy girl”.

So girls, rest assured knowing that even if the past is inevitable and the Ex will always have played a part in your boy’s life, good friends will always know how to snap you back to reality…and make sure you return the favor when needed:)

Athlete-ical dating.

PinkPoutine has been noticing this recent craze in celebrity-athlete dating, as exemplified by Gisele Bundchan (PP’s major supermodel obsession) , Hilary Duff, Kim Kardashian, Eva Longoria, Jessica Simpson, Carrie Underwood, and uh, Paris Hilton (however long this new boy toy would last for her). I think it’s brilliant. We can not name a type of guy that can possibly be man-er than althetes. And paired with the most gorgeous and elegant ladies (note the exception: Miss Hilton), it’s like a match made in a place even more magical than heaven itself. It screams out eye candy (TWICE!) everytime they step out in public and showing their affection for one another, god it makes my sweet tooth ache.

A few worth mentioning… because PP adores cutesy lovebirds!

Gisele Bundchen x Tom Brady

20080604-204136-pic-541360420

These two just got married (and apparently getting married again with a second ceremony). I LOVE LOVE LOVE her and honestly I’ve always thought she would end up with someone who wasn’t in the spotlight that much but yet still famous for a reason (Leo Dicaprio just didn’t do it for me). Even though this NFL player is a semi-manwhore (the ex-gf was preggers while he began dating our lovely Gisele), he’s still pretty yummy!

Hilary Duff x Mike Comrie

hilary-duff-kiss-comrie

Dude, he’s a pro Canadian hockey player (Ottawa Senators), we like we like! And because of this relationship, my fellow Canadians get to spot Hilary in Canada every so often! She plays a really supportive role to her boyfriend as she is often photographed in freeeezing Canada to cheer on her man ever since they began dating in 2007. I mean, trading off the more interesting summer/spring wardrobe in L.A. for boring winter jackets in freezing cold weather? Now that’s some sacrifice, I can tell already she’s pretty serious!

Jessica Simpson x Tony Romo

jessica-simpson-tony-romo

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo gave Jessica Simpson some hardcore love potion that made her so in love that she almost always mentions him whenever she’s on stage (at least everytime she sings “You are My Sunday“). I’m not that fond of their love; I think ever since Jess dated him, her career has gone downhill and she seems to care less about herself and devotes all her attention to her beau. I mean, what is she doing with country music and that high waist, black top outfit? (I have to say that oufit did her well, at least it made everyone remember her existence again).

Victoria Beckham x David Beckham

david_beckham

This, doesn’t get any better. They are the couple of all couples, the hottest of all hottest, the famous of all famous, and of course, the rich and wealthy of ALL rich and wealthy couples. I thought it would be appropriate to end this post with Victoria and David Beckham – the textbook example of a classic celeb-athlete couple. I suppose we all know their FYIs by heart, and even have it memorized backwards. Careful, your keyboard is not drool-resistant.
