Antoine, je t’aime

My love for Antoine Doinel* knows no bounds!

I’m considering watching all the movies again, in sequence. ♥

Photo crush: Jennifer Causey

Jennifer Causey is one of those complete photographers who shoot everything, from landscapes to beautiful food (my favorite subject)! She has a photography blog, simply photo and the brilliant simply breakfast, in which she posts pictures of her breakfasts. Love!

Decor8, a site that I adore, published a super cool post about her last week.

Also check her portfolio, her wedding website and her etsy shop.
