Vanilla Twilight

I love this song, the lyrics and the way it sounds are
just beautiful. I especially love the bit of lyrics in bold.

Vanilla Twilight

The stars lean down to kiss you
And I lie awake and miss you
Pour me a heavy dose of atmosphere

'Cause I'll doze off safe and soundly
But I'll miss your arms around me
I'd send a postcard to you, dear
'Cause I wish you were here

I'll watch the night turn light-blue
But it's not the same without you
Because it takes two to whisper quietly

The silence isn't so bad
'Til I look at my hands and feel sad
'Cause the spaces between my fingers
Are right where yours fit perfectly

I'll find repose in new ways
Though I haven't slept in two days
'Cause cold nostalgia
Chills me to the bone

But drenched in vanilla twilight
I'll sit on the front porch all night
Waist-deep in thought because
When I think of you I don't feel so alone

I don't feel so alone, I don't feel so alone

As many times as I blink
I'll think of you tonight
I'll think of you tonight

When violet eyes get brighter
And heavy wings grow lighter
I'll taste the sky and feel alive again

And I'll forget the world that I knew
But swear I won't forget you
Oh, if my voice could reach
Back through the past
I'd whisper in your ear
Oh darling, I wish you were here

The costumes of The Young Victoria

They were all so beautiful that even if the movie had been awful (it was quite the opposite however) I still would have enjoyed it just to look at the costumes. I couldn't find a picture of most of my favorites, but here are a few samplings. There is one in particular of the men's costumes, that stood out (seeing as usually the men's costumes aren't near as impressive as the women's in this kind of movie). It was one that Rupert Friend's character was wearing in an earlier scene, it had a green scarf-type thing that I just loved.

Unexpected appearances from Emily Mortimer, Jackie Earle Haley, and Patricia Clarkson in Shutter Island

Three of my favorite actors, all of which I think are very under-rated.

The Hours

Julia Robert's laugh

I love it. She is this beautiful actress, one of the biggest names in hollywood, and when she laughs she just lets it all out, holding nothing back. It's loud, and it makes me smile every time I hear it. Anytime I hear it in a movie or in an interview, it makes me smile (can be heard most recently in the movie Valentine's Day)

This clip from the bloopers of Pretty Woman has a great sample of it right at the first.



Ever see or hear something that just fills you with joy. Whether it be a noise, an idea, a person? Of course you have. Well that's what this blog is dedicated to. For those everyday (or perhaps not so everyday) things in my life that contain such beauty that I'm filled with that indescribable feeling of love and joy.
