I've booked some tickets to see Casablanca in one of the railway arches at Vauxhall next Sunday: a slightly Valentines-y activity!

Casablanca is a film I've not watched since I was quite young, so I'm really looking forward to it. I've read a fair few articles about Ingrid Bergman recently and come across a couple more of her films. I really respect her; there was such intensity in her acting, and she had such integrity. The part of Casablanca when she explains why she left Rick in Paris, and asks him to give her the transit papers, will be wonderful to re-watch, as will the final scene when Rick insists she leave for Lisbon.

If you are wanting to emulate Bergman (I know I will be after Sunday!), here are a couple of good purchases:

Helena Rubinstein Surrealist Everfresh Mascara from £35 and Eyebrow Powder-Gel in Charcoal Grey from £28; Chanel Poudre Universelle in Naturel £33 and Rouge Allure Lipstick, Enigmatique £25; Burberry Nail Varnish in Sage Green and Pale Yellow £15; Paul Smith Silk Scarf £125 (this print is probably more 50s, but so I though it so beautiful, I couldn't not include it!); Moroccan tea pot (you can find one similar at the Comptoir Libanais)

So - happy Valentine's day!
