Cinematic Views and a Mouse’s Back

I interrupt the gift guide frenzy to bring you some videos that have somehow slipped the net, here on A Model Recommends. Firstly, this house update and then – perhaps tomorrow if I get a move on – a rambling makeup try-on with a fancy new red lipstick and a chat about Gold Digger.

Please tell me you’ve been watching BBC’S Gold Digger? There’s much I feel I need to discuss with you! I tell you what, I’ll give you a head start now so that you can watch the first episode before my next post – then we can chat about it next time. You’ll definitely have something to say.

Though I’m wary about recommending it as Mr AMR only gave it a four out of ten and felt quite cross that his time had been wasted – I found it utterly ridiculous in many places but enjoyed it immensely.

Anyway, back to the house update: Cinematic Views and a Mouse’s Back. Not an actual mouse’s back; it’s a Farrow & Ball paint shade. Very descriptive. There’ll be a longer post soon with all of the house shenanigans, this is just to keep you all going…

    Dear Ruth
    The Mouse’s Back is perfect, and nice to have the type of space where you can take the colour up onto the ceiling as well.
    I hope you don’t mind me asking about your skirting boards – do you know what profile/design they are please? They are very understated with a small detail at the top, have been trying to track down something similar.

    I have not watched Gold Digger, and because I get really cross if my time is wasted by TV shows I will await your report first.
