Scaphandre et le papillon

its been a while since i watched a movie that i really loved. This one was just amazing. It's very sad, but no one ever sees the world through the eye of the disabled. Watching it just made me thank God for all the things we take foregranted. Highly, highly recommended.
The french was also a treat to my ears. I just love that language.

The Diving Bell and the Butterfly is an four-time Academy Award nominated 2007 film directed by painter-director Julian Schnabel and written by Ronald Harwood. It is based on the French memoir Le Scaphandre et le Papillon by Jean-Dominique Bauby.

The film describes Bauby's life after suffering a massive stroke at the age of 43, which left him with a condition known as locked-in syndrome. The condition paralyzed him; his only remaining means of communication was the blinking of his left eyelid. The film premiered in competition at the 2007 Cannes Film Festival on May 22, where Schnabel won, two weeks later, the Award for Best Director. Schnabel also won Best Director at the 65th Golden Globe Awards, where the film won Best Foreign Language Film.

head jewel

My current fav.


although the heat is killing me every morning, its good to have the summer sunshine back. I really miss the days when i had nothing to do every weekend but pack my swimsuit and go to my granny's for a dip in the pool. Really felt like summer back then.
I've filled my time up this quarter with 5 courses, quite hectic one it'll be. On the sunny side though i've got thursday off, scheduled my riding classes on that day.

The addition to my hat collection is i think the most prettyful thing ever. will post pics of it later.Right now,i am wishing for a spin on the chanel merry go round. Sil vous plait karl, make one for our backyard.I'd love to have this as my view.

In a spectacular setting in the Grand Palais, the maestro of French fashion who has already shown his own label collection this week, transformed the catwalk into a fairground with a giant carousel as the centerpiece.

But in the place of fairground horses there were Chanel's signature details -- quilted handbags, camellias and pearls.

au revoir , london

we fly back tommorow night, back to the heat. Still feels good to be going back home.
I heart you bahrain.
Sometimes I dislike myself for being greedy. I am never content with the amount of shopping i have done. I always want more. And then i think of all the people who go on days without a drink of clean water, while i shop for my 7th new pair of shoes. I must remind myself to be thankful.

snow tree

it snowed today morning,and the sight was beautiful. I'm a snow virgin, never seen snow before.I love the frosty trees and white grass effect. I don't know about the cold weather though,could be painful to be out right now.
London is lovely at this time of the year, especially with the people you enjoy your time with most.
We went to a tack store that day and purchased some riding gear that was most needed.
The guy at the store recommended a visit to polistas in burlington arcade, something we must do before leaving.

sweet london

after a break of tranquility in abudhabi, were here for a break of shopping. The weather here is very satisfying. Not so cold,but cold enough to dress in overcoats and shawls. Today is our second day here, we spent it strolling on sloane and harrods.
I have discovered a discreet love for color I haven't known about before. I suddenly have the urge to purchase things with splashes of color for some reason. I wasn't ever like that, but mum always said i would change one day.
Grey is a color i always go for,according to the color me calm theory ;
Gray is the color of neutrality, neither subject nor object, neither inner nor outer, neither tension or relaxation.Gray feels as though it is not colored, not dark, not light a separation between two distinct entities, a demilitarized zone free from stimulus. Gray communicates an element of non-involvement or concealment. Its a color that remains uncommitted and uninvolved.

todays best, mes notes a laduree.
i really miss riding
