February Faves: Ways to make your March better

Can you believe we’re already 2 months into 2018? I can’t!
It feels like I haven’t achieved anything, to be fair, I’ve only been working these entire holidays.Just a quick post about 3 things I enjoyed in the month of February. I hate reading long blog posts myself, so I’ll try to keep things brief.

Most Worn Outfit:-

Top and pants from Uniqlo, Shoes from Billini, Coat from New Look.

As some of you who know me in real life knows that I am always dressed for work. During school semesters, when I am in and out of uni constantly, I can’t be bothered thinking about how to dress. I have these items in multiple colours, so it makes dressing up in the morning a hundred times simpler. Uniqlo has the best basics.
I’ve been really digging this jacket lately! I love how it looks when it flies in the wind.

Fragrance:- Chanel Chance Eau Tendre – EDT

I’ve been eyeing this perfume for a while, but since I already had the Eau FraÎche I didn’t feel like I needed to purchase it until I at least finished it. Low and behold, my boyfriend gifted it to me for Valentine’s Day and I’ve been wearing it since.

It’s floral, without being sickly sweet and juvenile. It is equal parts youthful and elegant, and so pretty. Admittedly, I enjoy it a lot more than the Eau FraÎche which is a heavier, fresh, more “green” scent. I’m not very good at describing smells let alone perfume, so go out and have a smell yourself.

Film:- “Call Me By Your Name”

If I had to describe it in 3 words: seductive summer splendour.

I have been obsessed with this movie as of late, having seen it a couple of times this month! The chemistry between Armie Hammer and Timothée Chalamet is unbelievable, and they are both so amazingly talented.
The film’s really changed the way I think about love and relationships, the film is a work of art. Michael Stuhlbarg’s monologue at the end gets me emotional every time I watch it; it’s been taking up some real mental real-estate. My take away is, one should never become numb to one’s feelings; pain is a gift. Ripping out parts of oneself to heal, will only lead to emotional bankruptcy.
Check out the trailer here.

In short: –
The setting of this film is in Italy during a summer in the 1980s, about 17-year old Elio Perlman spending his days at his family’s villa. During this time, he meets Oliver a doctoral student who is interning under his father. They both discover and explore their new-found mateship, which becomes more, forever changing their lives.
There are a ton of symbolic references in the film, making it a richer experience, and worth your while.
I just cannot get over the seductive and charming atmosphere that Luca Guadagnino(the director) is able to establish in the film.

Nothing is exploitative or superficial.

Everything felt real and honest, he has a remarkable way of capturing ‘life’. You’ll feel like you’ve missed something that you’ve never experienced.

It’s intoxicating.
