Put a feather on it.

Birds are so passé. I think the next big thing is feathers. And the next big thing is already here. You saw it here first.

Then again, I probably will do a bird post in the very near future. Have you been to H&M lately? They have like 8 bird patterns out that I absolutely love.

Le Cinéma: Les Emotifs Anonymes (Romantics Anonymous).

I've recently become a little bit obsessed with French romantic comedies. So much so that Netflix has created a special category of them, just for me.  Which I found very thoughtful, especially when it recommended Romantics Anonymous. Initially, I was psyched just by the title. I often consider myself one of the last romantics in the world (this is my latest reasoning as to why I am still single) so to think that in France there may be a club for other people in my same boat (or rather the existence of an idea of a club like that), was oddly thrilling.

In actuality, the translation of the title is a little off because the term 'emotifs' had to do more with an anxiety disorder that plagued the main characters of the film than being a romantic the way we understand it. But don't worry. If you think you don't want to watch a movie about two people who are completely socially awkward fall in love (while making chocolates), you are probably wrong. I found the whole thing to be entirely charming. 
Also, I love French films, because they always seem to have the best art direction and costume design. And the actresses are always pretty in a subtle, normal way. I like that. 


And I'm back.

Introducing the new + improved blog! 

I have this bad habit of not wanting to start things until I can do them properly. I think every year I make some sort of resolution about not procrastinating in some capacity. But old habits die hard. Back in March (I think?) I started a redesign of the blog. Changed the name, changed the header... and then for some reason didn't finish. I think in a lot of ways I was feeling a little bit lost and wasn't in the mood to get back up here and I felt like I hadn't really mapped out what it is that I wanted to do with this. But recently I started thinking again about the "Begin Anywhere" advice and decided to get it done. 

Found on Ginger-Ella
So I'm back. And I've changed the name of the blog, but it will have mostly the same content with a few new things and probably a little bit more about me. So I hope you keep reading! Also, this image was one of the inspirations for the new name:
Found on Lavender Aura
There's something really dreamy about a green pleated skirt packed away just for the purpose of a chance seaside afternoon dance. I have a serious case of wanderlust lately (and always).
