    Some great movies in that list. I haven’t seen them all though so I shall seek some of those out. I have to say that I immediately scrolled up and down to see if you had Wild in there. As I read the book before I saw the film and that story is so inspirational and makes me want to take that kind of journey on.

    I’m obsessed with Audrey Hepburn, so I love Paris and New York. This is such a great post. I haven’t seen all the films, so I will check them out. Thanks x
