FILM ADVICE...

Sunday, 7 April 2013
Hey girl, I need to ask you to go to the cinema and watch The Place Beyond the Pines. I know, it's a big ask but trust me. I would like to watch it at least three more times, and not just for the obvious reasons. Best film. Best film! A multi-layered, epic trilogy that avoids the Hollywood norm of everything having to be black and white, good or bad. It was so fantastic that it's made me go silly

LAST WEEKEND IN PARIS {AGAIN}...

Saturday, 30 March 2013

My heart sank as I realised I'd drawn the short straw and got the Eurostar carriage filled with teenage French schoolchildren. But all was well - they were curiously subdued. Once in Paris I couldn't resist the flowers - €12 for FIFTY anemones (at the Red Kids market). I could never buy fifty anemones for myself, but would be very happy if someone else did.

CHATS...

Tuesday, 26 March 2013

In Paris last weekend I was intending to see the Eileen Gray exhibition, when I kept coming across this funny poster for another exhibition: Les Chats. Yes, paintings of cats. I did walk past the Pompidou Centre, intending to stick to my Eileen plan, but it was the final day of the big Dali exhibition and the queues stretched for miles. Chats it was. I made my way over to the Quai des Orfevres
