#TuesdayTune ~ Will you be seeing The Great Gatsby?

I can't wait to see THIS!


The Great Gatsby follows would-be writer Nick Carraway as he leaves the Midwest and comes to New York City in the spring of 1922, an era of loosening morals, glittering jazz, bootleg kings, and sky-rocketing stocks. Chasing his own American Dream, Nick lands next door to a mysterious, party-giving millionaire, Jay Gatsby, and across the bay from his cousin, Daisy, and her philandering, blue-blooded husband, Tom Buchanan. It is thus that Nick is drawn into the captivating world of the super rich, their illusions, loves and deceits. As Nick bears witness, within and without of the world he inhabits, he pens a tale of impossible love, incorruptible dreams and high-octane tragedy, and holds a mirror to our own modern times and struggles.

 

Everything about the movie looks stunning!



The costumes are gorgeous...

I love this behind-the-scenes look inside Baz Luhrmann's adaptation of The Great Gatsby, including interviews with the film's costume and production designer Catherine Martin and director Baz Luhrmann. The Brooks Brothers costumes look gorgeous!


Tiffany & Co. is the official jeweler for the film. Tiffany has created a collection of platinum-set diamonds and  pearls that complement the period clothes. 

The opulent jewelry gives the actors a true sense of the high life as celebrated by their characters at penthouse parties and summer soirées at grand estates.

The music is incredible! 

I adore this song from Lana Del Ray - what an amazing voice.

Young and Beautiful 


If this film is anything like Moulin Rouge or Romeo and Juliet it's going to be brilliant!



Will you be seeing The Great Gatsby this May?

Best wishes,

Say G'day Saturday Linky Party {64} and Fabulous Features!

Welcome friends! Thank you so much for joining me for another Say G'day Saturday Linky party!

Say G'day Saturday Linky Party {64} and Fabulous Features!

I hope you have had a great week. I've had a busy week at school and at home but was lucky enough to enjoy a break in the middle of the week to honour our military for ANZAC Day. Our family had a lovely luncheon and said thanks to our Dad for his part in the Vietnam War. It's great to see that Vietnam Vets are finally being acknowledged and thanked for everything they did-it has taken a long time for them to receive recognition!

Coffee Time ~ My New Beverage Station

Hello, I'm so thrilled you have stopped by to say G'day today! If you are new here welcome to Natasha in Oz, my little corner of the internet world Down Under. If you are an old friend, Welcome Back!

I have had such a great week this week thanks to my new Beverage Station!

I have been able to enjoy my morning coffee piping hot for a change; I am usually rushing around making lunches and preparing breakfast for everyone and then drinking it cold!

So, on the subject of coffee, today I am sharing a small change I've made in our kitchen. I've recently been inspired by some of the wonderful coffee stations that I've seen on Pinterest and I thought I should do a little faffing and try and set up my own.

Do you have a coffee station at your place?

Here's some of the images that really inspired me.


This is my dream coffee station!

I only had a very small area that I could use for my coffee bar but, as you can see, I was still able to set up an efficient coffee station quite easily.

Cups and saucers are all stored in the drawer below.

I used a vintage silver sugar and creamer set which looks perfect with my pretty Cath Kidston spoons.
