broken glass jelly

jelly

remember that handmade soap that was all the rage a while back, it was full of different coloured chunks and smelled like strawberry and vanilla… and you thought it was so tasty looking, you could just eat it? (sometimes you tried). well now you can – with jelly (slash jello)! let’s make some – get the recipe here.

the virgin suicides

Air popped up on my playlist this morning, which of course made me think of The Virgin Suicides. one of those movies that i love, but hardly ever watch. i think most girls my age can relate when i say this film had an impact on my teenage days (i was 16 when it came out). we were the same age as the lisbon chicks (but, hopefully, not as sheltered/melancholic/suicidal) and we all kind of had a thing for josh hartnett.
