*I love this picture. It's from 'Little Dorrit' which I would highly recommend, even if you aren't a Dickens fan. I love the composition, the colors, they all seem so resolute in their seriousness. Each coat or jacket would be subtle on it's own, but together the palette becomes rich and oddly beautiful. The weathered wood and aging brick....love this picture.
*Cute Overload. No ones day should go by without a visit to CO.
*Can I get a shout out for yoga pants? Holla! A step above sweat pants, but equally comfy, they have become a part of my daily uniform. My favs are from Old Navy and are incredibly affordable. They wash up beautifully and are fully functional as yoga pants. (As opposed to lounging around the house pants.)
*Incense lovers.....I just bought some satya sai baba Nag Champa incense from Amazon and it is seriously the best incense I've ever used. Each stick burns for over an hour, which is amazing, and the fragrance is beautiful, but not over powering. Two thumbs up.
*Soap in a tin.
When I was scouring the clearance asiles for shower game prizes I discovered this nifty soap in a tin from Scotland. I found them at TJ Maxx and Marshalls for $3 a tin. Right now I'm using the Wild Rose and I LOVE it. It's creamy and gentle and smells fantastic. And, you get the bonus of these sweet little tins. I have bobby pins, hair elastics, stitch markers, and beads stored in mine.
*Guilty pleasure: Keeping up with the Kardashians. It's like watching life forms from another planet.
*Scala & Kolancy Brothers is a Belgian women's choir and I am currently obsessed with them. Normally I would link to their dedicated web page,but it looks like it's in German (I think) so I chose the wiki page instead. The quality of this choir is exceptional and they do really amazing covers of popular American music. Below is a somewhat disturbing, but powerful video using SKBs rendition of Radiohead's Creep. Not appropriate for work.
*Last, but certainly not least, I finished 'The Night Circus' last week and now I need a red scarf. Seriously. A black coat and a red scarf. In fact, I went yarn shopping, found a lovely red wool and have casted on. The pattern isn't exactly how it was described in the book, "She hands him a red wool scarf, the one she has been knitting on and off. It is longer than Bailey expected from watching her knit, with intricate patterns of knotted cables at each end.", but I'm happy with it. I am determined to become a Reveur!
