this show is exquisite

I think yuri on ice is a blessing that came in the right time, i mean 2016 was so shitty from reality to even TV shows and somehow we had this beautiful beautiful innocent and healthy representation of LGBT+ community and people who suffer from anxiety and people of different ages and nationalities on a Japanese anime how rare is that? Also to show case how exquisite ice skating is and how fragile and delicate the skaters are. How it’s relatable and deals with so many issues about a person’s character, emotions weakness and strengths and how the people around him perceives it. Like literally i get so depressed sometimes and it really gets to me how 2016 is sometimes too brutal but tbh i smile helplessly everytime i remember yoi exists and it’s real and our ship is Canon and it’s targeted towards everyone, a gay couple out and far away of the context of oversexualizing males to straight female audiences CAN YOU IMAGINE SUCH AN ACCOMPLISHMENT? Anyhow enough with my burst of emotions Have a nice victuuri day everyday my babies

Holiday season is upon us, which calls for a touch of luxe. I’ve teamed together with Redrebs to show you how to style a cosy yet chic daytime look that’s perfect for a daytrip or outing with friends and family. Focusing on the luxury segment, Redrebs carries gorgeous plus size eveningwear with a distinctly festive touch. I’d styled this gorgeous lace LBD from them for an evening look a while back, today I’m dressing down the most lightweight and exquisite silk jacket to show you how eveningwear can be made to work for daytime as well!

I’ve kept the look simple in monochrome with classic pieces that I rotate regularly in my wardrobe. One of my tricks to wearing an outfit in a single colour is layering textures and shades. Although I’m predominantly wearing blue (with hints of black) for this look, I’ve picked out the individual pieces to range from royal blue to teal and navy. While single shade looks can be absolutely breathtaking in their drama, mixing shades and textures makes for a more wearable iteration on the theme! When it comes to style, I’ve always taken inspiration from the costumey and the theatrical - because after all, what’s fashion without a hint of the outrageous? I feel that today’s look in black and blue draws on a lot of those elements while remaining dapper and comfy enough to spend the whole day in. My Redrebs shrug is definitely today, and I’ve chosen the rest of the pieces to complement rather than overshadow it. It’s one of those classic fashion rules that don’t need to be followed, but it’s also one of my top tips for pulling together an outfit! So whether you’re looking to glam up or dress down this holiday season, have a look at Redrebs’ collection, they’ll have you sorted no matter your style!

She also broke his mind control from Grodd back in season 1 just by saying "do it for me" and he responded immediately saying "Iris" and the lightening flashed in his eyes, the Speed force has a very deep bond with her.

Indeed she did!  I love that connection.  Here, a lovely friend of mine (@kuntxmalik) linked me to a gifset that exquisitely shows many of these wonderful Barry/Iris/The Flash moments.  I’ll reblog it so it’ll appear above this ask.

Sometimes I think about a mage Lavellan inexperienced with combat magic. Considering the need for Dalish mages to hide their power whenever the clan neared civilization, as well as their reliance on the knowledge of their keeper for training, it’s a reasonable assumption that Lavellan could initially be pretty clumsy when it came to fighting with magic.


Solas does not say anything about it, but an experienced eye might notice him casting simple spells in repetitive but still effective patterns. He smiles when Lavellan copies the first, and moves on to slightly more complex magics.


Vivienne responds with a gentle nudge here and there. “That archer on the hill, would you freeze him? Thank you, my dear.” “I’ll handle those two, keep an eye on our dear seeker, she could use a barrier – ah, excellent timing, darling.”

An exquisite staff eventually shows up in Lavellan’s room with a note written in a neat and flowing hand: 

A gift from a courtier seeking to incur favor from me. A pity he did not think to inquire after my height. It should suit you better, my dear.


Dorian puts his foot down after the second mistimed lightning bolt. “Oh but this is ridiculous,” he says. “Come visit me when we return to Skyhold." 

He proves to be an apt teacher, showing Lavellan how to throw a proper fireball off the battlements of Skyhold and instructing them of the perfect place to set an ice mine to catch even a (certain former) templar unawares. He offers them dozens of books on magical theory, bookmarks always placed at particularly relevant chapters.

One day he laughs, a little bitterly, as he is instructing Lavellan how best to utilize their new, perfectly sized, staff.  

"Dorian Pavus with an apprentice,” he remarks. “The things they would say in the Imperium … no, no, not like that! Maker are you trying to give me a headache?”


Other girls have to worry about their partner forgetting their anniversary, but you never have. Every year, Joonmyun comes up with some new, special way to show you he loves you. On your third anniversary, he took you on vacation to Bora Bora to stay in an overwater bungalow. But no matter the extravagance he goes to, all that really matters is being together and feeling how much he loves you. This year, even though he’s been busy with concerts and work, he arranged a sweet dinner for just the two of you - scallops, quail, squash blossoms, champagne… Everything is a little over the top, but still full of comfort and warmth. Sitting with you on the couch, arm wrapped tightly around your waist, he clinks his champagne flute against yours and whispers the toast against your neck. “To my precious and exquisite jagi. I will never be able to show you how much you mean to me.”

Ethnically Jewish girls have such an intense beauty. The elegant curve of our noses, our thick, curled, volumous hair. Don’t ever let anyone ever tell you that middle eastern blood is ugly. We are the oldest people, surviving so much that has sought to bring us down and it shows in our beliefs, in our songs, and even in the exquisite way we are sculpted. You are all so incredible, so smart and tough and kind. If you hear someone saying a big nose or curly hair is a bad quality, or that your religion is wrong, go talk to your grandmother. She will show you a number on her arm and tell you “there will always be them, but more importantly, there will always be us.”


Ruhlmann Master of Art Deco

Florence Camard

New York: Abrams, 1984. First English-language edition. Quarto. Black cloth embossed in black. Photo illustrated dust jacket. 312 pp. 487 illlustrations, 67 plates in color


This is still the major reference work on the renowned French modernist architect and interior designer Jacques-Emile Ruhlmann. Known as The Master of Art Deco, Ruhlmann created opulent, exquisitely designed furniture, homes and showrooms for the Parisian beau monde in the twenties and thirties.

Excellent English translation of the 1983 Paris monograph (Paris: Editions Du Regard, 1983) on one of the greatest and most prolific Art Deco cabinetmakers and interior designers of the twentieth century. Translated by David Macey.

The legendary French furniture designer and interior decoratorJacques-Emile Ruhlmann (1879 - 1933) was a luminary of Art Deco, the creator of luxury designs that are today some of the most coveted masterpieces mde in Paris in the 1920s. Born in Paris in 1879, Ruhlmann took over the family decorating firm in 1907 and soon began showing his exquisitely elegant furniture and decorator objects at the Paris Salons d'Automne. Ruhlmann’s pieces were concieved as luxury one-offs, made of the most costly materials, including exotic hardwoods such as Macassar ebony, amboina, or rosewood with tortoiseshell and ebony intarsia inlay.

In 1919 Ruhlmann and Pierre Laurent founded Etablissement Ruhlmann et Laurent, specializing in interior design and producing luxury home goods that included furniture, wallpaper and lighting. For the 1925 Paris “Exposition Internationale des Arts Decoratifs et Industriels Modernes,” Ruhlmann caused a sensation with the interior design and furniture of the “Hotel du Collectionneur” (A Collector’s House).

In 1929 Ruhlmann showed an elegant study and living room he had designed for a crown prince at the “Salon des Artistes Decorateurs.” The storage furniture designed for the library was bought by the actress Jeanne Renouard. The Maharajah of Indore even had it copied in Macassar ebony for his new palace at Manik Bagh. These modular storage pieces were also the forerunners of modern system furniture.

Ruhlmann’s legacy as a designer was the subject of a major retrospective exhibition at the New York Metropolitan Museum of Art in 2004. In 2009, he was called the “Art Deco’s greatest artist” by the New York Times.

Florence Camard, specialist in the decorative arts from 1890 to 1930, teaches at the Center for the Study of the Art Object in Paris.

!!! that show is such a heartbreaker ashlyn srsly why 

Listened to It | wtf is that | LOVE IT | meh | um…hate it | heard of it | yes!!

Rate: off the charts omg

Favorite Lyric: “From man’s first breath to God’s last warning, you and I are just one second…”

Favorite Song: uHhHhh One Second and a Million Miles/Almost Real 

Favorite Character: Francesca! she’s such a wonderfully complex character with such a beautiful loving heart 

Best Moment: for me it’s when Fran chooses her family over Robert- that moment is painful but right and it stuck with me.

Something that makes me angry: bridges isn’t running now??? (also! I wish there had been a little more time devoted to the johnsons as a whole family.)

Gives me the chills: Literally the whole show- the characters are so compelling and the music is exquisite and it’s an extremely well-crafted musical where everything in it is deliberate and well-placed! which I really enjoy.

Overall opinions: finding bridges was one of the best decisions ever

Last few days to see the show #Verdant at @moderneden. My painting “Remnants of a Scent” is still available and in good company with @reddwalitzki ’s beautiful show “Exquisite Corpse” as well as the other amazing artists that took part in Verdant : @laurenmarxart @sydbeeart @hannahfaithyata @crystalbarbre @karilise @kindranikole @liobabrueckner @jeanpaulmallozzi @susanneapgar @janabrike @lbustamante @happydartist @mirandameeks @tracylewisart @caitlin_hackett @_fernbeds_ @michaelcampbellart


RICHARD ARMITAGE in BERLIN STATION (2016) 02 101 Station to Station

ICYMI I’m fave screen capping Richard’s character Daniel Miller in each episode of Berlin Station, the new spy show that began on EPIX channel in US on October 16th & continues each Sunday at 9 pm ET. One of the biggest reasons I love this show is how exquisitely it’s shot by the directors and top cinematographer Hagen Bogdanski.

PANAMA Station. This is where we find out that Daniel Miller is a field agent, not a Langley desk jockey analyst. And he hasn’t been idle here, we see him hiding a flash drive stashed with other items in the jungle. Poking around things, he’s discovered this “Thomas Shaw” conspiracy which is currently plaguing the CIA station in Berlin. His immediate superior isn’t listening to him, but the boss above him, Jemma Moore, is & as a result, Daniel is reassigned to Berlin Station with a cover story to investigate the Thomas Shaw leaks & stop them if he can. This job doesn’t thrill Daniel; Berlin is the last place he wants to go, as it’s a step back into a painfully difficult past.


RICHARD ARMITAGE in BERLIN STATION (2016) 01 101 Station to Station

This post begins fave screen capping of Richard’s character Daniel Miller in each episode of Berlin Station, the new spy show that began on EPIX channel in US on October 16th. One of the biggest reasons I love this show is how exquisitely it’s shot by the directors and top cinematographer Hagen Bogdanski.

In this scene opening the show, Daniel is pursuing a person as part of Berlin Station’s team when they are intercepted by another group after the same thing. He is shot on the plaza, but who did it and why? Does he die? Why is Daniel smiling at that opposing guy? Interesting start to give us a result before we see the game!

The daylight is dying,
The Flying fox flying,
Amber and amethyst burn in the sky,
See, the sun throws a late,
Lingering, roseate
Kiss to the landscape to bid it good-bye.

The time of our Trysting!
Oh, come, unresisting,
Lovely, expectant, on tentative feet.
Shadow shall cover us,
Roses bend over us,
Making a bride chamber, sacred and sweet.

We know not Life’s reason,
The length of its season,
Know not if they know, the great Ones above.
We none of us sought it,
And few could support it,
Were it not gilt with the glamour of love.

But much is forgiven
To Gods who have given,
If but for an hour, the Rapture of Youth.
You do not yet know it,
But Kama shall show it,
Changing your dreams to his Exquisite Truth.

The Fireflies shall light you,
And naught shall affright you,
Nothing shall trouble the Flight of the Hours.
Come, for I wait for you,
Night is too late for you,
Come, while the twilight is closing the flowers.

Every breeze still is,
And, scented with lilies,
Cooled by the twilight, refreshed by the dew,
The garden lies breathless,
Where Kama, the Deathless,
In the hushed starlight, is waiting for you.
