Barns, Kardashians, and Hank.

I always find Hank from the Vlogbrothers amusing/ and or interesting and a few of his videos that I watched today are no exception.

Green Collection

I really like the colour scheme of this set of pictures and the collection of beautiful things. Inspiring...

The "It's Complicated" house.

I love Nancy Meyers movies, but besides that, I was watching It's Complicated with my family and I noticed how much I liked the house. And her shop too.

It's not exactly my style, but I do still like it. It feels like a home. If that makes sense?

If you haven't seen it, I highly recommend it, you can watch the trailer below.
It's funny, a great rom-com and follows traditional Nancy Meyers style.

The Notebook.

I really can't believe that it took me this long, I am actually quite ashamed, but I finally saw The Notebook with Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling.
Here is what I have to say:

1. Rachel Adams is beautiful, her hair was really cool in the movie. But she definitely suits darker hair.

2. Oh! Ryan Gosling - this just demonstrates the powers of grooming.
Although, he was still pretty hot in this. Not as hot when compared to Crazy, Stupid, Love. Don't get me wrong, Crazy, Stupid, Love OBVIOUSLY takes the cake...

But - you see my point?

3. Nicholas Sparks can weave a delightfully nail-biting yarn - can he not!?

4.I love the Swan Scene!

5. I just realised how much of a sap I am.
Excuse me while I go cry about another romance story...

6. The whole time, I was watching it downstairs, on the small tv, letting my dinner to get cold waiting for the movie to end. Then, I go upstairs and find that they are watching it there too. Delightful, I know.

 7. Her parents were horrible! Yes, I do know that was the point, but still!

8. If a young Emma Stone was in this movie, that would just be too awesome/ weird for words.

Nighty-Night Folks,
I'm out!

This staircase is just awesome - and I love the ferns below.

These lanterns make me think of downtown Savannah, Georgia. I have never been there, but my brain makes that connection for some odd reason. Don't ask me - it's my brain's logic, not mine.

Such a luscious lawn! (he he - I sound slightly drunk.?!)

That lake/ river looks strangely threatening in all it's green-li-ness, but still - the scene looks tempting anyway.

With just a splash of green, this delectable town house makes me think of The Nanny with Fran Drescher. And I want to live here!

The oh so slight fogginess and detail of this picture makes me associate it with London and Victoria and Albert. Who knows?

I hope this has been a great dose of green for your visual diet,

Elizabeth, xx

Poupoupidou - Nobody Else But You.

Last night, I watched Poupoupido or, the english title, Nobody Else But You. I had missed it at the French Film Festival, so I was delighted to be able to catch it on the World Movies Channel. Just the right mix of humour, crime/ thriller/ suspense and the mood and reality that all french films seem to have. If you haven't seen it, I suggest you do!


The ambiguous suicide of a local beauty, weathergirl, cheese model, and Marilyn Monroe look-a-like finds an eager sleuth in David Rousseau, best-selling crime novelist. When Rousseau visits a remote Alps village for the reading of his friend's will he unwittingly, but irresistibly, gets caught in the tangled web of murder and small town politics in this off-beat mystery.
