My Favorite Things and Loves: The March Edition

"My painting is visible images which conceal nothing; they evoke mystery and, indeed, when one sees one of my pictures, one asks oneself this simple question 'What does that mean'? It does not mean anything, because mystery means nothing either, it is unknowable."
-René Magritte

Hello all!

I look forward to this monthly post every time, as it's a collection of inspirational images, reads, music, words, and so much more that I would come across, which perfectly stirs the nostalgic romantic in me and would love to share with you all- enjoy!


Anyone who's a fan of Jane Eyre, particularly with the recent film that just came out (which is beautiful, with a haunting score to complement it- composed by a favorite of mine, Dario Marianelli (who did Pride and Prejudice and Atonement)- it's a must-see).
The latest edition of W Magazine features Jane and Rochester (the lovely Mia Wasikowska and the very handsome Michael Fassbender) is definitely one of my favorite covers and shots. I must admit, right now I am very much smitten by Michael Fassbender and can't wait to see him in upcoming films.

New Paris Vogue Editor Emmanuelle Alt's debut issue. I love the cover.

I came across this in a bookstore one day and fell in love with the stunning images inside the book, and even the title itself brought out an small inner rush of bliss. I need to go visit Nantucket Island someday- add that to my Life list.

A very charming story for those who ever wondered what it's like to live a life by the lighthouse- I know at one point in my life, I certainly wanted to live in such a intricate setting, and thought it would be utterly magical if I did.

The new Coco Mademoislle short film from Chanel, featuring the always lovely and talented Keira Knightley.


This album is on my favorite playlist- "Spring"- and is so endearing. It's one of my favorite albums at the moment. Give a listen, and I'm sure it'll melt a bit of your heart as it did with mine. I am loving the album's title: The Day We Ran Into the Sea.... makes me yearn for the seaside, where I would go discover lighthouses and have picnics, swapping stories under the night sky....

Words to live by:

“Neither a lofty degree of intelligence nor imagination nor both together go to the making of genius.
Love, love, love, that is the soul of genius.”
-Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

Joie de vivre,



  1. what beautiful photos! I'm officially in the mood for Spring.

  2. these pictures are amazing! thank you for stopping by!

    have a great weekend.

  3. Oh goodness, for a second I thought the book you'd posted was The Lighthouse Keeper's Daughter instead of Wife. And I was giddy for a second because I remember reading and falling in love with that book in high school and never knew anyone else who had even heard of it. Alas. :P

    I'm dying to see the Jane Eyre movie! It's unfortunately not playing anywhere around here yet. I'm waiting rather impatiently!

    I'm feeling rather adventure with music as of late, so I'll have to add this album to my list of tunes to check out! It does have quite a magical title... that's enough to draw me in.


Thanks for brightening my day! Always love to hear what you have to say.
