currently into...

A small portion of the things I love at the moment
  • Quirky heels {with socks}
  • Embroidered collars, elegance, high necked dresses
  • Kiera Knightley 
  • OPI nail polish. At the moment I'm wearing Serving up Sparkle, very pretty!
  • Christmas cheer. I'm a Christmas fanatic, I love the smell of tinsel, gingerbread and cinnamon rolls (I'm attempting them these holidays!)
  • Dario Marianelli's amazing music. He wrote the score for both Jane Eyre and Atonement and I've been listening to his music non-stop all day...
  •  Etsy store, Hunter Gatherer, stocks the most beautiful accessories
  • The movie Anastasia. Dancing to 'Once upon a December' in ballet is the loveliest thing ever
  • Hart of Dixie, the tv series with Rachel Bilson. Best. Show. Ever!

I guess you could say I'm a pretty big list maker. I have a journal filled with lists of all sorts. I'm actually looking through it now and I'm surprised at the amount of things I've had to say over the past few months. Wishlists, goals, things to be thankful for, blog ideas, inspiration and feelings etc. It's actually so much fun to read your diary and your thoughts, especially from previous years. I think that'll be another project for the holidays, I can't wait to see what the perspective of my 12 year old self was....

I'm also getting glasses! I went for an eye test today and I have short sited vision. I didn't even realise until I put the glasses on and everything was so sharp and clear. I picked out some subtle frames so that the chances of looking like Mia Thermopolis are slim, haha! (braces are on the way too). ♥

    I love lists! Reading them and making them, I will make lists of everything. I'm thinking of doing a christmas wishlist! I can't wait for next week, we are going to get a Xmas tree and start decorating the house. Plus we are having a house-warming party on the 17th and I want it all decorated! I wear glasses too, I'm changing frames this month too. They are a great fashion item!

    What a lovely list. I love the Anastacia film too and that musical box...I want it. I have the soundtrack to that film. Also if you are liking Dario Marianelli's soundtracks listen to 'The Brothers Grimm' and 'Pride and Prejudice', he did both of them. I'm very into allsorts of soundtracks/scores/trailer music. Give me a buzz on twitter if you want me to send you links some of my fav tunes. contact me via twitter @annajanesearle. You may like this piece of music from the 'The Others film' http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fE0QQrcA1Ws&feature=related

    The socks and heels combo is brilliant! Socks are one of those things I never think of buying at all but these look adorable.
