Little Things That Count - The Weekly Roundup October, 31

Music : Brooke Fraser - Something In The Water. I can't explain it, but there's something about this song that just puts me in a good mood. It's been with me this week, especially in those cold/foggy/late autumn mornings. Brooke Fraser is a singer/songwriter from New Zealand, who has just released her third album called "Flags" and this is the lead single.

Check out photos of her below and more on her photostream.

Perfume: YSL - Nu Eau de Parfum. I have a thing for unusual perfumes. I like creativity when it comes to fragrance and I've worn this one 3 times this week. Sadly it's been discontinued, but it can still be found at online discount sites every now and then.

Beauty product: OPI Siberian Nights nail polish. Dark plum, perfect for this time of the year.

Movie/TV Show: An oldie, but goodie - A Beautiful Mind. Needless to say that if you haven't seen it yet, you need to do something about that. ASAP.

Food/Dessert : Pumpkin pie cheesecake, Happy Halloween!

Blast from the past: The Wallflowers - One Headlight. Great song. It takes me right back to 1997.

Random thought: Why in the world is Eva Longoria Parker hosting the MTV Europe Music Awards? Yawn. But hey, maybe the rest will be good though. They're going to happen in Madrid, Spain on November 7th.

Also in the news this week :

The internet buzzed about Kanye West's new song, Runaway, which is accompanied by a 35-minute short film directed by West. If you prefer the 4-minute video version, you can watch it here. Say whatever you like about Kanye West, but if you can look beyond his major jerk tendencies (sorry Kanye, but it's the truth), in the context of today's hip-hop music, he's one good artist/producer. Yes, he's known for his abuse of auto-tune and his singing live could use some improvement, but he's delivered some pretty good material in the recent years. I am not necessarily a fan, but I love the colors in the new Runaway video and the song is not bad either. Plus, the ballerinas dance is visually stunning and makes for some of the best stuff I've seen this year in music videos.

Next story falls in the "WTF" category: Taylor Swift and Jake Gyllenhaal might be dating? covered this one pretty well :D, with nine theories on why those two could be in a relationship. You can read it here.

Katy Perry married Russell Brand in India and I want to see her wedding dress simply because it was Elie Saab couture. For now, the rumors are that it might have been this gown.

Which brings us to fashion and the lovely dresses from Atelier Versace Fall 2010 Lookbook. It was released last month, but I wanted to make sure it didn't go unnoticed, because it's some of the best Versace I've seen in quite a while.
