Weekly Love – Week 77

+ Totally in love with my new Ciate paint pot colour – shame the formula is not as good as my beloved Essie… 

+ I want to eat at this restaurant!

+ This fact about Hamlet that Katy left for me in her comment about my weekend in London post: Did you know that when David Tennant performed as Hamlet for the RSC, the skull used for Yorick was that of composer/pianist Andre Tchaikowsky, who, in his will, donated his skull to the RSC and asked for it to be used as a prop on stage, but Tennant was one of the only Hamlet’s who felt comfortable using a real skull. A little bit of nerd theatre info for you there! Incidentally, Andre Tchaikowsky donated the rest of his body to medical science, not just his skull! This is yet another reason why David Tennant is my favourite Hamlet!
