Life Imitating Art Ideally it should really be the other way around but I feel Mr. Wilde may have been correct that this is in fact the more frequent reality. My two recent flower crown bearing, Summer road-trips proved it thus, particularly the last. The surroundings were just too beautiful to be described, other than prior to going in my mind I had ...

I've always said that the best movies you will ever watch are the ones in your imagination. And in Art History we have a tendency to romanticise and over imagine art whilst admiring and especially researching the tale behind the painting in a way that is indescribable.

Your Present Is A Gift These words are the kind I hear often from almost every meditation teacher I've encountered, as well as my Mom (a total non-meditator). Also I'm pretty sure I've heard it on one of the Kung-Fu Panda movies, so you know these are definitely wise words to live by. But recently I've come across Impossible, fronted by one of my favourite ...

Pretty Ugly Christmas Trees Happy birthday Jesus! (Kind of) So Christmas has come and gone at least in this time zone. And as usual it's the anti-climax. I'm just going to share my favorite part of this holiday; the making of the tree. This year after 16 years of Warehouse plastic that had weathered through it's share of stress of how to be decorated ...

Historians will especially know what I mean, but in your whatever area of interest when you come across a video/exhibition/book where you've absolutely been like OHMYFUCKINGGOD, it's like an absolute intense intellectual orgasm. I just had a mini one and you're about too as well. This just in from my Vogue feed, you're welcome. Will be posting the Dior exhibition ...

Tales From My Walk Winter is here! And I've resumed my walks at the beautiful Cornwall Park and One Tree Hill, and decided to document it via Instagram. Whatever the weather, I almost usually always go, nothing beats the feel of the chilly wind on my cheek bones, and sometimes even the sun comes out to say Hi.Since exams and most other commitments are ...

The black and white adds a beautiful dreamlike quality invitng the viewer to Coco's little Deauville boutiuqe through the screen.
