Wow, it’s been ages since the last “5 tip for the weekend” post, I know. It’s back again!
Btw, I recently noticed that some of your comments ended up in my spam folder – now I keep checking it regularly before deleting the spam comments (although that’s totally annoying…), but in case your comment went missing before I started doing that – I’m sorry! I love all your lovely comments!!! Maybe I just need to get a better spam-filter.
#1 craft idea: paint some shoes!
#2 movie you should see
I’ve seen this movie more than once and love it. It’s not full of action and certainly not suspense-packed, since we know how it ends, but Audrey Tautou portrays Gabrielle Chanel’s life before she became famous as Coco Chanel in such a beautiful way. It’s a must see for all seamstresses out there!
If you’re not convinced yet, here’s the trailer.
#3 book you won’t regret reading
I’ve just finished this book and can only recommend it. It’s one of the few well-researched books about her, sweeping a lot of wrong facts and rumors out of the way. I enjoyed reading it and found it to be the best Monroe biography so far.
#4 recipe to try on the weekend:
Sun-dried tomato cilantro hummus!
Doesn’t that look delicious? You can find the recipe at abeautifulmess.com.
#5 Play around with your camera and make a stop-motion short film!
It needs quite a bit concentration, but making a stop-motion short film is so much fun! It might be a challenge to get your children interested in this, but maybe you get them to make one of the process of tidying up their rooms 😉
This one made by some of my friends is absolutely adorable and inspiring:
(Watch out, their song will be stuck in your head all weekend 🙂 )
