Read about this stunt that parents have pulled on their kids while they sleep - I love this.
Very touching, especially for someone who is not sure as to whether or not she will want to have children in the future.
Making sustainable living commonplace.
Making cleanliness commonplace.
Destroying germs and illnesses.
Sustainably farmed food, food made with care and love.
"I believe that together we can create a brighter future for our children."
Have a watch.
I always find it interesting to see which songs make it into DJ Earworm’s yearly wrap up mix, and which songs (that I often think were “big” during the year) don’t. Still catchy regardless.
These Tatty Devine champagne glass earrings (http://bit.ly/IC8hFq) were meant for me. Wish listed for post gift giving season!
It’s one of the few Christmas movies I can watch EVERY year, and the only movie with Will Farrell I can actually stand.
Super excited to finally be seeing the best musical of all time tonight.
Update: Until now the only Les Mis I had seen was the movie, and I can honestly say I have a better opinion now that Russell Crowe isn’t who I think of for Javert!

"Whenever I feel gloomy with the state of the world, I think about the arrivals gate at Heathrow airport. General opinion started to make out that we live in a world of hatred and greed, but I don’t see that. Seems to me that love is everywhere. Often it’s not particularly dignified or newsworthy, but it’s always there. Fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, husbands and wives, boyfriends, girlfriends, old friends. When the planes hit the Twin Towers, as far as I know, none of the phone calls from the people on board were messages of hate or revenge, they were all messages of love. If you look for it, I’ve got a sneaky feeling you’ll find that love actually is all around.”
Because it’s now officially the month where I must watch Love Actually at least a few times. Unfortunately, I seem to live in a country where the users of Netflix don’t deem this as a necessary movie, as it’s not available for streaming!
Love the design of this colour-coded 4 way adapter! So handy for the next time you travel.
If I were in America, today may have been filled with rushing about to the shops to take advantage of the Black Friday deals. However, being across the ocean together, we chose instead to fill the day with food and delicious soothing tea, walking, and a stop into John Lewis to pick up some things to continue my home nesting project.
While the Wolseley was not exactly what I was expecting (e.g. quiet room with peaceful piano music playing in the background, perhaps some puffy arm chairs or a plush sofa to sit on, white table cloths etc), the afternoon tea was still quite good. Do keep in mind if you plan to go that it is quite boisterous inside, and there’s no piano with peaceful music playing. The finger sandwiches and scones were absolutely delicious though!
In case I haven’t mentioned in a while, Selfridges is probably my favourite store in the entire world. I am going over to Selfridges to finish up my holiday shopping and will be finding myself one of the Elfridges!
Happy Black Friday!
