The Chill is in the Air

The chill is in the air. It has been extremely cold in Cheshire this week. We were in Milan over the weekend, and it did not feel half as cold as it does here. It was chilly enough to pop a jacket and maybe a scarf on but it was just moderate chill, nothing like what we have here at all. I even had some sunshine on my birthday. But I have to forget about Milan, and accept the fact that over here in Cheshire, it is freezing!

Whenever I am out, I am always eager to get home to a warm house. I love the fact that our heating system can be set to go on and off at various times. It definitely makes my life a lot easier; I don’t need to run and down the stairs to pop the heating on, and it keeps the house nice and warm for longer because it comes up at times when the warmth is needed.

We have never had a boiler breakdown (touch wood) and I am super grateful for that. It could be because we have our boiler serviced by good heating engineers every year, as recommended. I did skip a year one time though but it was not intentional. Running after 2 toddlers all day can be extremely exhausting, I tend to forget most of the things that need to be done, and that year I forgot to have the boiler serviced. I remember the following year, which was last year, and got it done immediately by a professional heating engineer. So do check to see when next your boiler is due for a service to avoid an annoying boiler breakdown.

Elle Fanning Covers ELLE UK February 2017

The lovely 18-year-old Elle Fanning is the cover girl for ELLE UK February 2017, and she looks beautiful.

I love how colourful the cover is. Her hair and makeup is on point (love the red lippie), and her blue outfit is very stylish. I really can’t fault this cover. ELLE ticked all the right magazine cover boxes.

I read a few excerpts from Elle Fanning’s interview with ELLE, and it sounds like it would be a great read. Here are some of them:

 

Limiting her social media presence

‘I recently turned my Instagram public on my 18th birthday, but I still don’t post everything I do, and I’m not on Twitter or Facebook. You have to leave a little mystery. With old movie stars, all you saw were rare interviews where they only shared what they wanted to – that’s what made them so interesting. You could separate the characters from the women, so if you watch them on-screen you’re not thinking about what they had for breakfast.’

I am impressed to see she is not as social media crazy as the rest of her peers. The deal with social media is to run it and not let it run you. She sounds like a smart young lady.

 

The power of silence

‘I’ve just finished shooting with Sofia Coppola and she’s one of the quietest people ever, but there’s a real power to her silence. When she just stares at you from across a take, you know you need to get the shot.’

 

I agree, there is real power in silence.

I would love to read this issue. I don’t see myself buying it, but I would grab it if I see it lying around in a waiting room for example.

What do you think of this issue? Will you be buying? Drop me a comment, let’s talk.
