Hello again,
I’ve decided to dedicate this post to an amzing book I happened across the other day. It is by a very talented man by the name of Brian Selznick. The book is called “The Invention of Hugo Cabret” and is an absoulutely stunning book, that one can only place in a class entirely of it’s own. It is not only a captivating story, but is also told through visual means….drawings. The invention of Hugo Cabret contains over two hundred pages of beautiful original drawings by the author himself.

The Invention of Hugo Cabret is the story of a young boy who lives in a train station in 1930s, Paris. His father, a clockmaker, died in a museum fire under rather mysterious circumstances and Hugo is forced to live with his strange, drunken uncle who has the peculiar job of setting all the giant clocks in the station and making sure they run of time. Clocks are one of the main features in this book.
Now after a night of heavy drinking Hugo’s uncle disappears and Hugo is left with the job of ‘clock keeper’.
Now I do not want to give too much away in case any of you are planning to read it yourself. Which, I higly recommend you do.
Every page takes you deeper into the mystery, it is somewhat like a silent film that is absoulutely magical.
It is an amazing book, a masterpiece even, and I highly recommend that is you are interested that you read it. You wont be dissapointed.

Don’t stop dreaming (:

Home-made blingage :)

Hey everyone,
I was walking through a jewelry store just the other day and I spotted some really cool animal themed jewelry, and I was so excited to see the cheetah necklace hanging there. The cheetah being my favourite animal. I immediatly picked it up and was shocked at the price, so I decided to get a little creative and try and make my own. So I stopped off at Spotlight and searched through the jewelry section. They have a whole section dedicated to a brand known as the Global Nomads, which is quite an interesting brand. I absoulutely adore it’s unique pieces. Anyway I picked up a little brass chain and an adorable little pendant of a cheetah, and wallah! You have home-made blingage. I love the idea of wearing you’re favourite animal around you neck, it’s a little wacky, and also very unique.
I hope you liked it 🙂

Remember to dream magical dreams.
