Serge Lutens – Louve

We’ve all heard or read the story of Little Red Riding Hood sometime in our childhood. Girl wearing a red hood meets a big bad wolf in the woods, who eats up her grandmother so that he can dress up as her grandmother in order to eat the girl subsequently.

But yes, the great news is that my work attachment is OVER and I’ve got a number of weeks before returning to London and student life, where I invariably have more free time. I’ve scheduled a number of posts that will pop up every few days [Why not just upload all of them? Cause you’d just read all of them at one go, it’s the same with a TV series :D], so please do check in on the blog!
