We've moved

Happy New Year everyone hope you've all had a good break and have started the new year full of renewed hope and resolutions to achieve whatever you set your minds and hearts to for 2011. I have a feeling it's going to be a great one :)

I've mostly kept quiet on the blog front because I just wanted to fully recharge my batteries over the holidays  and I might have over indulged slightly in that aspect. Ooops! :) But I am almost back on full track and since I felt it was time for a change as far as the blog itself was concerned I have decided to move virtual premises.

You can now find me at http://bonjourbanana.tumblr.com/

With the same style of musings on film, music videos, music, fashion and other random bits I might think off but in a more "creative community" spirit; sharing information and interacting with people form all over the world seems so easy via this new platform and I thought I'd take this opportunity at the start of the year to take the blog into a different direction and hopefully make it better.

I hope you'll follow me there.

À bientôt for now from Blogger!

Merry Christmas Everyone

It's nearly Christmas and lots of people I know, myself included, tend to moan a lot at this time of year for various reasons, with some extremists out there even claiming they hate absolutely everything to do with this holiday....but what if Christmas hated you?...never thought about it this way!

The King's Speech

I don't know why I have allowed the buzz surrounding this movie to completely pass me by and having just seen this trailer I can certainly understand how justified its recent Golden Globe nominations  have been - seven in total including the big ones, Best Picture, Best Actor  in Lead Role for Colin Firth, Best Actor/Actress in a supporting role for Geoffrey Rush and Helena Bonham Carter respectively and Best Director for Tom Hooper - with expected nominations for Oscar glory as well.

Production value is absolutely outstanding not to mention the acting from the ensemble cast with Colin Firth sure to be a front runner for all the major prizes. I hope he does win the Oscar for this it will be thoroughly deserved and long time coming.

Powerful, dramatic, inspiring, spine chilling...just a few adjectives that come to mind watching the trailer alone. Cannot wait to see the film itself.

The Tree of Life

This trailer alone looks absolutely mesmerizing. Beautiful shots and the promise of wonderful performances all around. Not sure if I'll be able to handle this film to be honest....

Food Photography

 Yumzers


 My favourite photo because it looks painfully French and I'm such a sucker for it!

 How lovely is that nice touch of the newspaper behind the chips in the little jar, rather cute don't you think?


 This looks heavenly. I've never tasted dark pasta like that.
 And how inviting is this toast and honeycomb! Heaven

How beautiful and yummy is this food photography? I stared at these images for hours on end quite speechless because of the sumptuousness of the food which made me fancy all sorts different things and also the beauty of the shots themselves and the obvious consideration for every little tiny detail that makes Jeff Kauck food photography so romantic. Maybe it's the time of the year, maybe it's the Christmas music but I found these images quite uplifting just thinking about food and the comfort that it brings. I simply want to eat non stop!

Mille - Crysteena

This song makes me think of summer....already! It's that "digital" lamenting sound...makes me think of being out at a crazy time of night with a beautiful view and feeling like you only feel when you're on holiday when no worries can touch you!

Love it!

Scissor Sisters

Staying with the sexual theme and shocking imagery Scissor Sisters's Invisible Light proves quite the catchy tune. Slightly shocking visuals but still in that high fashion, glossy magazine kind of way!

But hey you gotta grab the attention somehow these days.
