Greetings Lovelies and happy Sunday!
As cliché as it is to say, time is just flying by and it will be time for sleighbells and Baileys before we know it! I like to think I’m very much affected by the seasons, I only need to get one whiff of cinnamon, and I’m wrapped up indoors in blankets religiously downing Options Belgian hot choccy.
Now it’s November, I’ve certainly begun to embrace those darker evenings and indulge in some good reads and cinematic delights to aid that festive feeling.
I have a real love for dystopian fiction; I thought I would combine this with my passion for women’s rights and finally read the well-loved ‘A Handmaid’s Tale’ By Margaret Attwood. So far so good, it has me gripped and I can’t wait to watch the highly acclaimed TV series after, and not just cause bae (Alexis Bledel, Rory forever) is in it.
I also thoroughly enjoyed this interview from the Vogue archives with Sir David Attenborough from 1979. A national treasure, Attenborough is well loved and celebrated. With Blue Planet II hitting our screens last week, this piece felt all the more fitting and it truly captured what a whimsical and enthusiastic character he is.
In need of a new TV series (obvs Stranger Things is next on my long list), Jack and I decided to delve into the world of opulence and drama and watch Netflix series ‘The Crown.’ I know I am lagging well behind the hype on this one, I always avoid watching things at the height of their topicality, then I’m left ranting and raving about episode 4 when everyone else moved on 632 years ago!
The sets of this series are pure magic, as a viewer you are immediately transported back to the era and swept into the ongoings and tribulations that took place at the palaces. I wouldn’t call myself a royalist, but at the same time I can’t deny that I am romanced by all its glamour and scandal, and Claire Foy’s performance as Elizabeth II is spectacular.
Thank you all for reading this post, as always send over any recommendations you may have as I’d love to hear them!
