Weekly Favorites :: Pride & Prejudice


 (Source)


I've very much been obsessed with the movie Pride & Prejudice. It's quite normal of me to go through these phases, wanting to watch a particular show or movie over and over, then at some point take a break from it. It's a [viscous] cycle. Does anyone else do this?

I finally watched the 1995 BBC version. I did enjoy it, but perhaps since I saw the movie first I'm biased. I fully expect some of you to leave comments on why the BBC version is better, but I'm not sure if you can sway me easily. The movie is just so beautiful: a classic love story, wondrous music, clothing I'd love to steal--I mean borrow. I won't delve further into details because I have a separate post in mind for this topic. I've deemed it important enough to, haha.

Normally I don't do anything special with my hair, except you know wash it of course and simply let it air dry. Back in high school there was a period of time I used to straighten it often, which now I have no idea why. I much prefer my curly hair and I did not know the meaning of heat protecting spray back then. Typical teenager. Anywho, I've just been playing with a handful of clips that I have to encourage some of my curls to look more tamed. I'm not really doing my story enough justice, haha. I know I should insert some visuals, but alas I have none at the moment. Patience!
Oh oh, well here is a visual of a hairstyle I'd love to try to attempt:

Perhaps I shall not attempt it in so grand o'fashion, but something similar. If you've seen the movie, I'd also like to wear my hair as Georgiana Darcy does.


I hope everyone is having a great weekend!

  1. I'm glad you liked my post! =] Reasons I love/hate my hair: I love it when my natural curls (which are pretty crazy) turn out all perfect, and I love it after i've straightened it and it's sleek. Reasons I hate it: it sometimes looks like an afro and if i were to straighten it, it would take forever.

    P.S. I own 3 or 4 version of P&P. Plus I have the book. =]

  2. I used to straighten my hair back in the day, so I can understand that frustration. As for the curls, it wasn't until a year-ish ago that I received my first proper haircut specifically for curly hair. Beforehand I did sometimes "have issues" with my hair, haha.
    Goodness! I approve, haha.

  3. The last picture of the woman's hair is wonderful! I wish I could do something similar. I have actually never read the novel or seen any movies or shows on Pride and Prejudice. Which is probably horrible of me to say since I am an English major. (Oh well!) I use to straighten my hair, too. I have very thick, wavy hair and now I just wash it and let it air dry.

    Thanks for posting on my blog! I really am enjoying the blogging community and how kind everyone is. :] Anyway, I believe your post has inspired me to finally sit down and read or watch Pride and Prejudice.

  4. I'm not sure if I can do such a hairstyle either, but I'll take a Sunday afternoon to give it a go. If you've any weakness to classic love stories, then the movie/book is a must! It's funny how that works; folk who have curly hair sometimes want straight hair, while those with straight hair wish for curly. =3
    My pleasure! It is wonderful to come across so many like minded people. =)

  5. Since no one has commented on why the original is better, here we go: as it's a series, you get much more details in the story, more character development, more dialogue and you can enjoy it over a longer period of time! Also, the chemistry between the leads is just so incredible... There's a reason why Colin Firth always ends up playing a character that's connected to Darcy!! ^^

  6. Alright, alright I would have to agree with your reasoning's, haha. However, I think my bias is flaring up when I say this, but I feel that the "movie" Elizabeth and Darcy have more prominent chemistry comparatively...I'll have to give the series another go, indeed.
