We are well into October so here are few exciting things happening this month:
I am going to the preview of Hollywood Costume exhibition at V&A next week and I cannot wait. Imagine being close to the most iconic outfits you saw on the silver screen – Dorothy, Indiana Jones, Holly Golightly, Sugar from Some Like It Hot and a special section dedicated to Robert De Niro and Meryl Streep aka the masters of transformation. I will report duly next week.
I am also hoping to see Cecil Beaton’s war time pictures at IWM.
Even though my garden started to look sad and bleak there are lots of great things happening this month. Next week I will try very hard to get to Taste of Autumn at Wisley and the week after next I am definitely going to the Shades of Autumn show in London.
I should really go to Garsons Farm to pick some pumpkins and sweetcorn
Speaking of food, I am obsessed with G&B sea salt chocolate, have you tried it yet?
I am having a major reading block, it usually happens after reading a number of books in a very short space of time. My brain needs to take it all in it seems, but I started Tove Jansson’s The Summer Book which should be really read in summer but hey ho, it’s good anyway.
I haven’t seen any films lately instead there are TV shows I am hooked on like Downton Abbey and Homeland. And of course there is The Great British Bake Off which is coming to an end next week, I was going to make one of the cakes they bake every week but failed miserably and only managed the pineapple upside down cake. All male finale will be exciting, I can’t decide between the jumper loving student and Brendan.
