A film you can't miss!

I didn't get to watch as many films as I would have liked at the Middle East International Film Festival, but out of the ones I did watch I can't get over No one Knows About Persian Cats by Iranian director Bahman Ghobadi.

The film centers around Iran's underground Indie Rock scene and more specifically, a  duo trying to flee Iran's strict laws to Europe to play their music freely. (This description doesn't do it justice).

From the plot to the acting to the soundtrack, everything is pieced together perfectly. Keep your eyes open for it, you'll be just as obsessed.

"When life slows down, it's easier to see the beauty in it," from my dearest Dylan. So so true.

Bring out the Pink Ribbons!

Among the many reasons I love the month of October (my birthday, Halloween, my birthday), I respect it on another level because it celebrates a very worthy cause: Breast Cancer Awareness.

Even though you hear about it daily as it is one of the most common cancers in women, a lot of people don't care to give much attention to it. There are a lot of ways you can help out especially with research by just giving a bit of your time. The Army of Women site provides great information on how to get involved. Please check it out, if you have time to read this you have time to sign up, you will make a world of a difference.

Being aware of breast cancer is vital as it can sneak up not only on women, but men too when you least expect it. While I hope none of you ever cross paths with it, learning more and checking yourselves never hurts.

Best wishes for good health to all xx
