Welcome to my blog. Come and stay for a while! 

victoria & albert

I'm something of a historical movie junkie especially if it features a strong, historical female character and fantastic wardrobe frippery. So let's talk about The Young Victoria with Emily Blunt and Rupert Friend (who looks a little like a pale Orlando Bloom in the trailer). I remember watching a BBC tv movie in 2001 called Victoria & Albert. I cried so hard my mother heard me wailing from upstairs. I don't know which is more tragic - the love story or my sixteen year old self sobbing hysterically in front of the tv. Votes?

Images from here. Watch the trailer here.

Now, onto the awards! I am so excited to have received the "Your Blog is Fabulous" award from the bubbly and always funny Casey at Sing Before Seven (sorry, hun! all fixed). Please stop by and visit her. Her pictures are guaranteed to put a smile on your face. Also, to Andrea at La Alaskena and Emily at This Ragdoll's Riches who passed on the Proximidade award. Thank you so much, lovelies! These awards are so special to me.

As customary, I would like to pass these on to my favourite bloggers, without whom my day would not be so bright:
