Hello friends, we’ve been blessed with beautiful sunny weather this week. Just look at that sky!  Here’s crossing my fingers it’s for keeps! What brilliant plans have you got lined up this weekend? I’m hoping we get to a good antique market.  Or maybe break out the barbecue grill.

And since its Friday, here once again are a few interesting links I’ve found.  Enjoy!!

After last week’s news about David Letterman retiring in 2015, its been announced that Stephen Colbert is taking over.  I like Stephen Colbert, I can’t forget the time he came out in support of the Philippines after last year’s Hurrican Haiyan tragedy.  He just about endeared himself to the whole country with that video.

Do you like fashion films?  Remember when Vogue’s The September Issue came out?  I remember playing hooky and watching it in the middle of the day in one of the theaters along the Champs Elysee. Anyway it seems that fashion films have become more common these days. Here are the top 10 of the moment.

Are you on Instagram? It seems hard to believe that Instagram was launched only in 2010. That’s a mere three years ago, but I guess that’s light years in terms of technology. Just recently it was announced that there are over 200 million users.  I am fairly new to it myself but its completely addictive, I have to admit.  Its true what they say that a picture is worth a thousand words. With such a great deal of users, it  has even altered the landscape of fashion.  Read all about it here. I love discovering different Instagrammers.  Do you have a particular favorite? Do share. I am Petites Merveilles (what else?) on IG.

Speaking of pictures,  I was amazed at this collection of photos showing Detroit in its early years.  Its hard to believe that it was once one of the country’s richest cities.  These pictures are so poignant and evocative, view them all here.

And that’s it folks!! Have a great weekend!
