I don't think there is anything I don't LOVE about Sofia Coppola. I wait, giddy with excitement to see her new film, Somewhere!

Sofia Coppola’s (Lost in Translation) new film Somewhere tells the story of Johnny Marco (Stephen Dorff), “a bad-boy A-List actor stumbling through a life of excess while living at Hollywood’s legendary Chateau Marmont Hotel. His days are a haze of drinks, girls, fast cars and fawning fans. Cocooned in this celebrity-induced artificial world, Johnny has lost all sense of his true self. Until, that is, his 11-year-old daughter Cleo (Elle Fanning) unexpectedly shows up and unwittingly begins to anchor him. Johnny’s fragile connection to real life slowly revives in her presence. So when the time comes fro Cleo to leave, his sense of loss is palpable, but the gift of hope she has also brought him leads to a beautiful, poetic denouement imbued with all of Coppola’s remarkable powers to conjure mood and atmosphere.”

Vintage fur, please don't throw paint on me!

So much time has passed since my last post, too much time in fact! I have some new favourite things that I am so very excited to share; a new vintage fur coat, new red hair and a darling new flatmate.

The vintage fur, oh so very posh, probably my most favourite purchase ever, was a wonderful Brick Lane find on a cold and foggy London sunday. Oh how warm it will keep me this long and depressing winter - bear hug!

Red hair, a long awaited experiment, is sort of more a dark strawberry blonde and is super fun and cheery - a new look for winter, love it.

New flatmate, who Jess (current flatmate) and I met last week is an adorable Geordie girl who happens to also be a fellow blogger! It seems she has a very cute rabbit (who unfortunately isn't allowed to move in) and makes pretty things. Look, look!
