Howl & Sophie ♥I always feel a need to disclaim that i have a difficult time keeping the book & movie straight. Except my fave: Sophie throwing a bucket of weed killer at him. That’s definitely the book :3
In a new project called “OMG, Who Stole My Ads?” French street artist Etienne Lavie makes it his mission to transform the ad space in Paris into an outdoor art gallery. He has been travelling around the city, snatching up posters and billboards, and replacing them with fine specimens of French art from an earlier era. If our senses have over-developed to the point where we need to be visually stimulated at all times outdoors, just to keep up continuity, then we might as well at least occasionally glimpse something that moves us—something we might elect to look at voluntarily. Lavie’s project gives that gift to a lucky subset of Parisian commuters.
Tom Stoppard, Salvage (Coast of Utopia Trilogy)
i re-read The Coast of Utopia today and, just, Stoppard’s non-Arcadia and Rosencrantz & Guildenstern works are so underappreciated on tumblr and i would like to try and rectify that.

Because too much arctic monkeys.

Omg, Guerlain makes teas named after their fragrances.
i’m in tears, there’s a shalimar tea, it’s like all my dreams have come true at once:
“A subtle blend of green and black teas from China and Sri Lanka, flavored with vanilla, bergamot, cinnamon, lavender, and natural aromas of cardamom. This tea recalls the rich and compelling character of the very first Oriental perfume.”
I just LOVE this image by photographer Todd McLellan!
Howl said, “I think we ought to live happily ever after,” and she thought he meant it. Sophie knew living happily ever after with Howl would be a great deal more eventful than any story made it sound, though she was determined to try. “It should be hair-raising,” added Howl. ~ Howl’s Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones
