in love lately, part i

  1. All Things Beautiful, by Nick Cave & Warren Ellis | Instrumental music to study to.
  2. Must You Go?: My Life with Harold Pinter, by Antonia Fraser | Told through various diary entries, this is such a lovely & smart portrait of the literary couple.
  3. Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution, by Kiehl's | I have relatively good skin, but do get spots every now and then & this stuff is pure magic.
  4. Belted equestrian rain boots, by Burberry | Saving up for these boots right now, hoping they'll still have them in about a month.
  5. Cold green tea | At this time of the year, just pop the steaming teapot on the windowsill & et voilà!
  6. Call the Midwife & Bomb Girls | Two shows, one British, one Canadian about a bunch of wonderfully empowered ladies back in the 1940s and 1950s. Oh, and Bunheads is back. 
  7. Simple & Beautiful Party Make Up, by Lisa Eldridge
  8. A Royal Affair's Oscar nomination for Best Foreign Language Film | If you are a fan of Sofia Coppola's Marie Antoinette, definitely watch this.
  9. Silver Linings Playbook | Not sure I get all the Oscar nominations, but it was a wonderful movie. Jennifer Lawrence, in particular, was fantastic.
  10. 10 Tips for Healthier Eating, by Calgary Avansino
  11. Stella McCartney & Chloé Pre-Fall 2013 | Both the settings & the clothes.
  12. American Pastoral: Miranda Brooks and Bastien Halard's Brooklyn Home, by Chloe Malle

"In the evenings, Halard will pull down the projector screen and let the girls watch their favorites—National Velvet for Violette Grey and anything ballet for Poppy (she is particularly fond of Nureyev). After supper, it’s up to bed, where they are read one English story and one French story each; then Brooks and Halard will cross the garden again and return to work for several hours in their respective offices. (...) They both use the carriage house as an office and rarely venture out except for daily runs to the girls’ French primary school, one subway stop away, and summer trips to Van Leeuwen for chocolate and Earl Grey Tea ice cream."
