Monday...we meet again, my friend! 

So here we are with another week to start, back to work for some, back to the Beauty Lab for moi...we've got holiday orders to fill!.....but of course the new James Bond movie is premiering and I just couldn't resist featuring the official song for SkyFall sung by Adele! I love James Bond...ever since I saw Sean Connery in "Dr. No" and "Goldfinger" I was hooked. I love me some Secret British Agent especially with that accent! 

"The names....Bond.....James Bond." ...can't you just hear his voice? *wink*

Checking out the previews I think SkyFall is going to be awesome!! I can not wait to see it. I'm really loving Daniel Craig as the new James Bond. Plus, I just love watching the man move....he's gorgeous. Enjoy the song "SkyFall" and the tantalizing movie clips from the new movie.  Let me know what you think...and if you've seen the movie let us know if you loved it! *wink wink*

Fun facts about James Bond:

What was the name of the first "Bond Girl" to appear in the books? 
Vesper & Vesper Lynd. It is believed that the character of Vesper Lynd was based on the real life Countess Krystyna Skarbek who was a Polish born spy known as Christine Granville. The Countess was apparently strikingly beautiful and a decorated World War II hero. In the book Bond created his own cocktail, which he called a Vesper after his heroine. It consisted of three measures of "Gordon's" gin, one of vodka and half a measure of "Kina Lillet" vermouth. It was shaken until ice-cold, then served in a deep champagne goblet with a large thin slice of lemon-peel. 

How many Bond books did Ian Fleming write? 
14. In order they were: "Casino Royale", "Live And Let Die", "Moonraker", "Diamonds Are Forever", "From Russia, With Love", "Doctor No", "Goldfinger", "For Your Eyes Only" (short stories: "The Hildebrand Rarity", "From A View To A Kill", "Quantum Of Solace", "For Your Eyes Only", "Risico"), "Thunderball", "The Spy Who Loved Me", "On Her Majesty's Secret Service", "You Only Live Twice", "The Man With The Golden Gun" and "Octopussy" (short stories: "Octopussy", "The Living Daylights", "Property Of A Lady"). A short story called "007 In New York" also appeared in Ian Fleming's book, "Thrilling Cities".

Author Ian Fleming was a spy himself, perhaps adding the reality that allowed the spy series to permeate through history. Fleming was a Naval Intelligence Officer during World War II. via

Fleming wanted a boring name for his hero, and James Bond seemed to fit. He found it on a book at his country estate. The author’s name was Dr. James Bond. It’s ironic, because after 50 years the name is now synonymous with tense, non-boring action. 

British Superspy is Actually Half Scottish
Oh, the horror! The hero that the English people embrace almost more than any other actually has one parent who is Scottish, traditionally a rival of the nation. In fact, we see in Skyfall that the title of the movie comes from Bond’s family estate in the gorgeous Highlands of Scotland.

Before you go check out this awesome video showing a little bit of what it's like to work behind the scenes on James Bond and the wonderful places like Istanbul they get to work in! Now, that would be one awesome job, wouldn't it? I've always been fascinated by how they put movies together & of course being able to travel to exotic destinations does sound quite fabulous, doesn't it?

Have an adventurous Monday darlings and dudes!
