Notes from the Weekend & a Few Lovely Links


Notes from the Weekend & a Few Lovely Links 29.07.19

THIS WEEKEND WE SAW Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood by Quentin Tarantino, whose ninth and latest film visits 1969 Los Angeles. Still not completely certain how I feel about it, but remember that it felt meanderingly and ploddingly slow, and very long. Of course, it was three hours and forty-five minutes, so it was actually long, but have always thought that really good films never seem to feel that way. It had its amusing moments and the golden light of Los Angeles was lovely, both Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt were in good form, but for the most part, the film as a whole seemed a bit lackluster at times and perhaps even a little pointless… If you decide to watch it, would love to hear your thoughts.

This week’s links include Bare Leather Sandals and a Guide to Rome; a Highlands hideaway, a recipe for Grilled Potatoes with Creme Fraiche and Black Sesame Salt; beauty favourites, and much, much more.
