Movie task: Happy-Go-Lucky

This week's movie task is going to sound a bit forced, but believe me, it's so not! I had a different movie in mind, but I realized that I had to talk about it today. I was going to feature Happy-Go-Lucky eventually, anyways; it’s one of my favorite movies ever. It might not be a masterpiece, but I LOVE it! And I love Poppy, the leading character played by Sally Hawkins.

I saw this movie for the first time while I was on my way to Los Angeles and I immediately fell in love with it. It’s perky, bubbly, colorful and funny; and, who doesn’t need those four adjectives in their life? Right? ;) I chose it because today I met a fellow blogger, Analia. She makes the cutest accessories (available here)! We met because I won her giveaway and she wanted to deliver the goodies in person, which, I thought, was a wonderful idea.

The second I opened the paper bags I realized that they’d totally suit Poppy’s personality! That’s the first thought that came to my mind.

Later on, she told me that her husband likes Kate Nash … her song, Merry, Happy is in the American trailer of Happy-Go-Lucky!

AND, yes, there’s a third fact, we were supposed to meet for breakfast at Felicidad (the Spanish term for “happiness”). See? I was bound to feature this movie today ;).

By the way, we met at Felicidad but it was closed because they were remodelling, grrrr! We found another nice café, which was nowhere as cute as Felicidad, but we made it up with a good chat :).

Make sure you check her Etsy shop! And don't be shy, go over to her blog to say hi! ;D She's super friendly and fun. THANK YOU, ANALIA! I had a great time today!
