ON POWDERED GROUND

Leopard Dress, H! by Henry Holland - Similar Here
Fluffy Jumper, AX Paris - Same Here.
Don't you just love it when you find something new that you probably never would have discovered during your everyday life? I was feeling sorry for myself (you know because I'm a big baby) and laying in bed watching a movie called 'The Truth About Emmanuel" - it was a lovely bittersweet movie and I highly reccommend it. Anyway, when the credits rolled and absolute angel started singing so I had to find out who it was.






The angel was Agnes Obel, an amazing singer/songwriter from Denmark and the song was "On Powdered Ground". The song is so beautiful and serene, it reminds me of how still and calm things are on an early morning in Autumn, when the sun shines and the birds sing freely with no one around to disturb them. Hence the pictures of me looking all tired because it was a little early for Gemma.

Please give the song a listen and let me know what you think? I've become a big fan of her ethereal songs and beautiful piano compositions and makes such a wonderful change to all that drum n' bass I'm assaulted with everywear I go.

Have you discovered anything new and exciting recently? Then share!

  3. Oh my gosh. I love this outfit!! That sweater looks so comfy. And the skirt is just adorable. Love love love!
    Oooh, the song is gorgeous. I love music like that. It's so serene and beautiful. I love discovering knew artists and songs, so thank you so much for sharing!!

    I guess recently I've 'discovered' Manchester Orchestra (it's a band...not an orchestra haha). I've always known about them and have had them on my ipod for a long time, but recently I decided to actually listen to them. I've been in a Manchester Orchestra funk for weeks now! I can't get over them. My favorite song from them is called The River. I love it!

  4. I love your outdoor pictures and amazing outfit. I have wanted one of those fluffy jumpers for ages but I can never find the right one. I saw a really cool red one recently. I love that song. It is meaningful and the piano appeals to me. I am so bored of my music right now so I am always looking for good new songs,

  6. Aww, hello Miss Sunshine ;) You are definitely casting your golden rays and brightening up dreary September Gems! I love everything about a yellow and black combo so your outfit is a real winner for me. The leopard pattern on your dress is a real beaut, it makes me smile when I think back to a post you did a while ago, when you stated that most associate leopard print with street walkers or prostitutes (your sense of humour brightening things up too, see) but I think if it's rocked by the right person it looks oh so pretty... step forward YOU!

    Hope you're OK Gems, so sorry you were feeling rubbish but I'm glad you discovered a beautiful song you felt an affinity with. I'm more of an R&B/hip hop girl myself but I gave it a listen and deffo agree Agnes Obel is indeed an angel :) As for drum n bass, I agree whole heartedly with it assaulting ears. Those people pumping it out of their cars make me feel old! o.O

  10. I really like her voice although the piano accompaniment at the beginning made me laugh because it made me think of the original Neighbours theme!x
