Am feeling slightly blue for no reason (and have been busily working this week), so let's just throw some links together....
*I was struck by this Guardian article about the lack of plus-size male models. While I've followed wonderful style bloggers like Grey Fox in their quest for older male models (as well as older female models), I'd literally never thought about male models and size in that way.
*Armando Iannucci makes a strong case for the BBC and against the Tory idea of downsizing it. As a BBC fan from outside the UK, I can testify that "proper international subscription channels" would be a thing I would wholeheartedly support with my American dollars. This outsider believes the BBC, like the NHS, is a National Treasure and should be protected.
*Doctor Foster, an upcoming BBC mystery-suspense-drama starring Suranne Jones and B Carvel as a (probably) cheating spouse, is a case in point. LET ME GIVE YOU MY MONEY, BBC, SO I CAN WATCH THIS AS SOON AS IT AIRS.
*The Man From U.N.C.L.E. is so my jam. No link, just a statement.
*And lastly, it seems to me that period drama/romances are having a bit of a renaissance. This fanvid uses Death Comes to Pemberley, Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell, Poldark, and Outlander (the latter being the only one I haven't watched) to make the case. It's a good 'un.
May you be linked up and happy today!

Hugs and a happy Bank Holiday weekend! :)
Hugs and a great weekend, L!
Thanks for the gorgeous vid...here's hoping the slight tinge of blue has faded.
Hugs and more hugs!
The blue's still hanging around, but it's manageable.
Hugs, and I hope construction is going well (and fast!).
