This Sunday, Ethan and I went to the Hebert Candy mansion, which in theory sounds like the most magical place ever, right? Well not exactly.I'm not too disappointed that I forgot my camera yesterday because this place was not all it cracked up to be. I guess I had high expectations of lollipop chandeliers, giant chocolate fountains, and little orange men with green hair running around singing. Basically it was a candy shoppe in the main floor of a mansion.And not even a cool looking mansion at that. There was no whimsy or imagination whatsoever, and really not a large selection of candy.Too bad, so sad.
Ethan and I spent the rest of the afternoon driving around looking for antique stores (we only found one surprisingly). When we got back I took these pictures below of what I wore (my outfit is a blatant ripoff of one of Alexa Chung's Madewell outfits) and watched the Julie Christie version of Dr. Zhivago on TCM. I'd seen the Exxon Mobil masterpiece theatre version on PBS back in High School and read the novel, but still had not seen the original version. Besides falling asleep in the middle (I was really tuckered out from our excursions) and waking up to see the end, I really enjoyed this version with its old-timey sweeping epic romance and beautiful landscape shots of the Urals in Russia.
