Monthly favourites time is here again and this one will be a quick run down as I’m a little behind schedule due to severe laptop issues that I don’t wish to dwell on as it is too annoying for words. So let’s get into it, […]

January Favourites : Who hates January?
January is my least favourite month of the year (when living in the Northern Hemisphere) and I tend to feel a little on the low side. My tiny town in France turns into a shell of itself as many of the cafes and businesses shut down to […]
RIP Carrie Fisher (1956-2016) and Debbie Reynolds (1932-2016)
Sometimes a mother’s grief is too much. Goodbye to these fabulously talented women. Hopefully they’ll be singing in the rain together somewhere far, far away.
June Favourites : The Winner Was A Quick Trip To London
It’s getting hot in here. Summer has arrived that’s for sure. My town overflows with people and life becomes more colourful and upbeat. A lot of the locals leave for the mountains in summer to avoid the heat, crowds and traffic jams but I like the extra […]
Daytripper : Cannes : Breathing The Air At Film Festival Time
Cannes at Film Festival time becomes a town full of loosely worn lanyards and people talking up their projects. As it was a public holiday last Monday I went to have a peek and meet up with friends. Maybe small glimmers of glitz would rub off on […]
Well January and February have already been and gone. I missed January favourites (that was not a stellar month for me – let’s just say a bad flu knocked me about) and it’s time to sneak these in. TV : Netflix has been busy on my electronic devices. […]
Did The Force Awaken For You?
I took the kids to see The Force Awakens on its opening day in France. They’ve been dying to see it since the first mention of the movie – ah since a few years back now. Yes the hype train has been in motion for quite […]
Perfumed People : Anjelica Huston’s First Perfumes …
“My first perfume was Blue Grass. I loved the bottle, with the flying turquoise horse with flowers in its mane. Then Mum gave me Diorissimo, which smelled like lily of the valley. Mum wore Chanel No. 5 and later, Guerlain‘s Shalimar, which was exotic and […]
Frock Up Ladies : Cannes Film Festival Is Here : Day One
The 68th Cannes Film Festival feels close in proximity but yet oh so far away. I do have a friend who is in attendance who will get to see all of the films well ahead of us regular folk. Lucky him. It was refreshing to see that […]
Flashback Friday : Can’t Believe It’s Been 30 Years : Desperately Seeking Susan
I can’t believe that it’s the 30th anniversary of Desperately Seeking Susan this year. How time flies. The recent release of Madonna’s thirteenth studio album Rebel Heart, prompted me to feature Desperately Seeking Susan for Flashback Friday. The film starred Rosanna Arquette who had a handful of memorable roles in the 80’s […]
“It felt, to me, like a permanent cocktail party, without the drinks. Acting took me away from real life to a pretend life. I wanted that real life back. I am not a dedicated actress, I’m afraid. I never have been.” Julie Christie

Sunday Ramblings : Another Version Originale : The Theory Of Everything
On Friday I finally saw the Stephen Hawking biopic, The Theory of Everything, with the incredibly riveting Oscar-winning performance from Eddie Redmayne. It was in Version Originale and the French subtitles floated gently across the screen, with only about a quarter of the actual dialogue! The film is […]
