Lovely Things March 2016

So it’s that time again: time for the next ‘Lovely Things’ Installment. I don’t know how the days are going so fast but it feels like it will be summer before we know it and it was only Winter yesterday! Where do the seasons go? But anyway, aside from the passing of time, I’ve got lots of other things to share with you in this Lovely Things March 2016 edition…

Lovely Things March 2016

Opera National de Paris

I seem to have suddenly found Ballet in my life again after many years, it must be almost 20 years since I had a ballet class and my love of it has never really wained, however, I’m discovering all sort of hidden ballet gems at the moment. The video above is a really interesting look behind the scenes at some of the work that goes in to producing a ballet production. It’s amazing to me how an artist can create something so beautiful on that scale, it must take forever! The Opera National de Paris have produced lots of really interesting videos recently, so If you’re interested check out their website or YouTube channel for more. I’ve got another of their videos to show you at the bottom of this post, so keep scrolling…


Gary Pepper in Paris

We seem to have a bit of a Paris theme here at the moment. This time our Paris attribute comes from the lovely Gary Pepper Girl and this beautiful editorial of her at the Park Hyatt in Paris. The pictures were taken by the very talented Zanita Whittington

A Little Anthropologie

I tried to restrict myself to just a few pieces from Anthropologie this month, so here they are…

Julieta Alvarez

Speaking of Anthropologie, It was there I came across the work of Julieta Alvarez. She is a ceramicist and designer based in Madrid and her work is ever so much my kind of thing! I imagine it will be the sort of thing most of us like really : handmade, earthy materials, gorgeous colours, minimalist modern style, what’s not to like! You can find a few of here pieces at Anthropologie but a lot more on her own site. Happy Browsing!…

Ralph & Russo

I said there would be a bit more Ralph & Russo, so here we have some in the form of some gorgeous shoes! Are they not amazing! These definitely fulfill my Princess requirements. I can absolutely imagine Cinderellla swirling around a ball room in these….

DuoLingo

Bit of a different one now, still sort of on the Paris theme! I recently had a desire to pick up French again, so I went on the hunt for an good app to help me and came across DuoLingo. I think if this app had been around in about 2004 to help me with my French lessons I might have done a bit better! I think the trick with this app is that they made it fun and there are cool graphics and you get points and can see how you are faring against other people – in this case my Sister! I think I’ve probably retained more in the past few days I’ve been using it than I did in the 2 years I studied it at School – all my own fault though! You can study a wide range of other languages from Russian to Irish, so there is something for everyone! Plus, It’s free! Always a bonus.

Lastly we have another video from the Opera National de Paris. This one is called Ascension and is absolutely wonderful…


So there we are, another Month’s ‘Lovely Things’ shared. What has been inspiring you this month? I’m always intrigued to hear what you’ve been loving recently…
