Gathered Links | 002

Happy Valentine's Day! Whatever your relationship status, I hope you have a lovely day, full of fun and smiles. You are loved, and don't you forget it!

I hope this week has been kind to you. It's been a tough week here, with one thing and another. I guess life is full of moments where the bubble of the daily mundane is burst, and where real life in all its frailty and sadness breaks in. But I suppose that is the essence of life. Happy moments, punctured with sad ones. Highs and lows. Beauty and ashes.

That said, I've been really inspired by so many things I've read, watched and listened to this week. Here are just a few of them...

+ It was a sad moment when Sergei Polunin left the Royal Ballet back in 2012. (I'm a massive ballet fan, in case you didn't know.) So seeing this video of him dancing doing the rounds, to much acclaim, was wonderful. It's utterly captivating. 

+ This beautifully honest post resonated with me so much. *Raises hand*

+ I've visited a fair few of these design and interiors shops, but all those I haven't are now on my hit list. 

+ A soundtrack from Paris, with love. 

+ This blog has become one of my new favourites. So stunning.

+ The more I see of the String shelving system, the more I long for one in our house!

+ The hope of heartache.

Have you seen anything special that's caught your eye in the week? I'd love to hear about it. Comment below or tweet me!
