Weekend Links

I hope you had a lovely week, m'dears! My little sis arrived yesterday, and I'm excited to catch up with her this week. What weekend adventures do you have planned? Aside from the Labor Day lake activities we have in store, I'm probably most excited to do a bit of vintage shopping with my sister and pop open the fancy bottle of champagne I bought for our belated birthday toast to each other. I'm also thrilled to have a "5 Things Friday" guest post today on one of my favorite blogs, Oh, Mishka! Check it out if you have a chance!

**And here are some links for you to get lost in...

::Practice you flapper slang at Behind the Curtain.

::Amazing photos of A Week of Food from around the world on Heart and Design.

::Tiny Showcase is a great place for affordable art and original prints.

::Picasso's famous war-protest painting Guernica is re-imagined in 3-D.

::Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab specializes in dark, moody,Victorian-inspired scents.

::Dream bathrooms to drool over on Belle Maison.

And three much-anticipated films coming out soon {all set in the Victorian period!}: Check out the Dorian Gray trailor here, the Sherlock Holmes trailor here, and The Wolfman trailer here!

black phoenix alchemy lab is like perfume porn.
oh my god.
i got one bottle when i was in the states, and i want so many more.
the international shipping is insane, but i'll treat myself one day.
i'm obsessed with the alice in wonderland series, especially the white rabbit flavour.

I had to have a peek at the Black Lab site. The way they describe their scents are out of this world! I loved it.

As for the trailer for Sherlock Holmes - wow - they turned him into a bruiser! Who'd have thought?!

Annie -- Glad you enjoyed my list! I'm tres excited to see PDG as a film. The young actor they have playing Dorian is yummy!

Amanda -- Thank you so much!!!

A Thought -- I only recently heard about the film myself. It looks fun!

Sam -- Hope you enjoyed!

Paul -- Thanks a million! I have also been practicing my flapper slang ;)

Ana -- The Holmes film actually looks kinda action-packed and sexy! Weird, right?
