Where’s my Slanket?

Finally, I have my very own Slanket! This is quite possibly one of the funniest/greatest inventions ever and I had the pleasure of trying one out this weekend. In a fetching duck-egg blue, my cosy, fleecey Slanket is the perfect addition to my household. It’s also extremely portable so you can wander around the house keeping your arms and front warm. Think of it like half a jumper – it’s melt-into-the-sofa-tastic! :-)


Black Truffle & White Cheddar or Vietnamese Cinnamon Sugar Sir?

You know when you venture to the cinema and you see those people in the snack queue buying the largest bucket of popcorn humanely possible? Well, that’s me. Yes, I admit it. I’m a secret popcorn addict. So imagine my delight when I heard of a company that produces high quality, handmade, gourmet popcorn? And not just any old flavours either. 479 Gourmet Popcorn offers an abundance of wild flavours that simply wouldn’t sit right in your average salt & sweet counter. Alderwood Smoked Sea Salt, Black Truffle & White Cheddar, Vietnamese Cinnamon Sugar and Madras Curry Coconut & Cashews to name just a few. Only one problem. It’s only available stateside. So I’m thinking posh outdoor cinemas on the Thames complete with gourmet poporn stands could be a winner…who’s with me?


T.shirt art

I love t.shirts. One of my favourite sites is truffleshuffle.co.uk – where you can resurrect your youth with t.shirts emblazened with the likes of The Wombles, Beverly Hills Cop and Bananaman. So, when i spied this gorgeous design from Imaginary Foundation i lept for joy. Combining two of my favourite things. Art and t.shirts. Genius.


The end

The closing credits of a film are often overlooked as we’re rushing to beat the cinema crush, but one individual has decided to celebrate these forgotten forms of art. A collection of final pages from films that feature the cinematic art of stating the obvious can be viewed at: http://www.flickr.com/photos/djll/sets/72157608369709836/

Love them! :-)



Refreshingly modest

So I watched Dev Patel – the shiny new star of Slumdog Millionaire – getting interviewed this morning. As a massive fan of the film and it’s Director Danny Boyle, I just wanted to say how refreshing it is to see how unaffected this talented young actor is by all the paparazzi and hype surrounding the film. The film is a beautiful portrayal of two brothers growing up in the slums of India and the separate journeys they choose to take. I think it’s brilliant how little we heard about the film before it’s release. It’s kept the essense of the film true and admiringly, the actors and actresses involved are following suite. :-)
