That Old Sport Named Gatsby

The Roaring 20s were the most glamorous, gorgeous, amazing decade.  

If time travel was real, the 1920s is where I would go, without question.

I'm obsessed with the clothes, accessories, furniture, music, parties, the list goes on and on.  

If you're even half as smitten with the era as I am, you have to go see "The Great Gatsby."  

I read the book in High School but don't remember much about it other than I really liked it.  Now I remember.  It's a bittersweet love story. 

I'm a sucker for a good love story.  Aren't you?

- The cast is perfection, especially with these gorgeous faces:

Carey Mulligan 
Leonardo DiCaprio
Isla Fisher
- The music is out of this world!  Jay-Z dominated the movie.  Need I say more? This catchy remake by Fergie is one of my favorites from the soundtrack:


- The cinematography, set, and costumes are spectacular, especially if you see it in 3D:



- The film takes place in New York.  NYC in the 1920s?  Yes please!


- You can even play a drinking game while watching (thanks to my funny and thirsty friend Buffie).  It's simple.  Just take a sip every time you hear Gatsby say "Old Sport."  
Warning:  take little sips, he says it about every 30 seconds.

I give it a 2 thumbs up on the Baby Mama Juice meter.  
Go see it and tell me what you think!

Want more 20s glam?  Watch these:






p.s.  Why do I drink Baby Mama Juice?  Because I'm off to Charlotte tomorrow for a fun girl's weekend at Bloggy Boot Camp with one of my besties, Catherine.  I was asked to be an Ambassador for Keurig at the conference.  I'm so excited and honored (and a little nervous)!

  2. Have fun in Charlotte. Wish I still lived there so we could catch up over dinner. A Keurig Ambassador...sounds impressive. I just posted a picture of my Keurig on my blog for an unconditional love photo challenge. Enjoy your conference and bring back lots of info.
