Pastel Passion

I love a good pastel colour palette and thanks to Barry M's amazing range of pastel shades I have been rocking pastel nails for the past few weeks,

These aren't my nails, I'm not that neat! Pastels are often reffered to as 'ice cream colours' but here it's the cones that are amazing colours rather than the ice cream itself, shame they don't sell them in my local shop...

And of course, I can't write a blog about pastels without mentioning the most visually appealing french treat, the macaron!
Last but not least in the edible pastels department,I've been eating these, with it being Easter weekend'n'all, it would be rude not to, right?!

The thing that actually sparked my writing of this blog is the below image. I discovered these beautiful pastel scenes in the clips of the 'hand coloured' film ' A trip to the Moon' (Le voyage dans la lune) in the film Hugo which I can highly reccommend!

I am completely taken by these film clips and will definitly hunting down more films by Georges Melies and hand tinted film in general. I love the imagination in the story and how everything was real sets and people in costume. If you like what you see you might also like to watch this clip....
