Debuting at the Toronto Film Festival this year,  Roger Michell directed Hanif Kureishi’s British screenplay which is a plot consists of a pair of college professors celebrating their 30th wedding anniversary. In hopes of rekindling their marriage, actors Jim Broadbent and Lindsay Duncan return to Paris for a week-end – the destination of their honeymoon. What follows is bantering, laughter and a night of unexpected fun.  Having debuted in the UK in October, I can’t wait to enjoy it here in the states. Have a look at the trailer. I think your curiosity will be piqued as well.

~Le Creuset Stoneware 22-Ounce Teapot with Infuser, White

As I’m always sipping a cup of tea around the house, I find I’m always wanting more than just one cup. So I have been on the hunt for a simple white teapot. And as many of you noticed this past weekend on Instagram, I’ve finally found one. Le Creuset’s white stoneware with infuser is perfect for 2 cups and not too large to get in the way. And for less than $30, it’s a steal of a bargain that will last for years.
