Ηello everyone :) Hope you are all well!
I always have so many things to do, i wonder what if we had more than 24 hours per day and how we will spend them.. Sometimes i crave a long sleep and sometimes i crave to be up all day/night. The past week was the second. It's easy for me, not to be able to sleep many hours for like a week and then one day my body plays the sleeping beauty with my bed. ( the above picture is a reminder that summer will pass soon, hopefully! :P )
Let's start with my adventures during this week.
Currently i'm reading this baby. Nicholas Nicastro the writer and it's name Antigone's Wake [ for more by him here ]. I bought this for 5 euros and till now seems a great book [ synopsis ].
Shirt from Restyle bought it like a year ago and my hand made necklace with the picture of the Completely stories and poems of Edgar Allan Poe. And since i manage to go out more times this week, i discovered some clothes i had forgot in the depths of my closet :P
The weather more than great gave me the chance to make a wonderful walk around my town. Rain took us by surprise and i didn't had the opportunity to take more pictures. We spend a gorgeous night by the sea with friends, acoustic guitars and drinks. I had a lovely week that is for sure :)
And now my indoor activities, aside the book, i abused my torrent. Movies, series, anime and some documentaries, they can be your best friend if you don't have the mood (or the money) to go out.
The Crimson Petal and the White
A gorgeous tv series by BBC ( oh yes of course by them, it is a novel first and more back in time inspired by a poem! ) with Romola Garai (♥), Chris O'Dowd, Gillian Anderson (♥) etc. The Crimson Petal and the White by Michel Faber is a 2002 novel set in Victorian-era England. Added to my long wish list.
And of course the title is from a 1847 poem by Alfred Lord Tennyson entitled "Now Sleeps the Crimson Petal", the opening line of which is "Now sleeps the crimson petal, now the white". [ Click here to read this magnificent poem ].
Don't mistake it with the 1986 Labyrinth with David Bowie ( but if you never watched it, you have to! ), its an other mini series as the above. A a historical show based on the 2005 novel of the same name by Kate Mosse. The series' setting jumps between modern and medieval France and follows two women's search for the Holy Grail.
Among all the past series i have add some new ones. Yes i am addicted when it comes to good productions. Mads Mikkelsen a charismatic actor ( with his accent ♥ and gorgeous face structure ) who i had the pleasure to see in some previous movies, surely can make you willingly his next... But you have to see it. No spoilers here. ( No i will not compare him to the one Anthony Hopkins, who holds a specific place in my heart)
I dont think that i ever mentioned here this new series. If you love E.A.Poe you have to watch it. If you like crime, drama and mystery you have to start it. A brilliant and charismatic, yet psychotic serial killer communicates with other active serial killers and activates a cult of believers following his every command.
A new series, filled with mystery and crime waiting for you to see, set in the East End of London in 1889 during the aftermath of Jack The Ripper murders.
En kongelig affære / A Royal Affair
And now plz let me introduce you to an other period movie ( Danish ) that i ADORED. History and romance, tragedy and drama with period costumes, manner, music, buildings decorations.. all those ingredients can make me fall in love. My congrats it was a great production and a great story.
Queen Caroline Mathilda: You recognized me.
Johann Friedrich Struensee: I would recognize you blind folded.
An american historical drama i found pretty long but Daniel Day-Lewis made it a gorgeous movie with his magnificent skills!!
Vikings and Da Vinci's Demons are waiting and of course millions books.
So people, until the next big post, wish you a lovely weekend/week and
