I went to this amazing contemporary museum in the north of Paris, the architect is Frank Gehry – they’re having the best exhibition I’ve ever been to, on Impressionism. They have these beautiful famous paintings, going from Renoir to Degas, Manet & Gauguin and so many more ! It’s a sight for sore eyes : I’ve only ever seen these works of arts in books before…
My boyfriend came along and he took those two pictures of me that you’ll see below; I really enjoy sharing a cultural moment with him, it truly is important to me as Art has always lifted my soul and spirit, and I feel blessed I can have that with him as well.
I promised you guys an Advent Calendar type of month, posting a blog update every single day until Christmas… I got so excited by the idea but I completely lost track of it, and today is my 10th post of the 24th I said I would do;
I still want to get them all done, but I don’t think I can manage to post a bunch to fill out those other days I missed out. It’s going to be a lot of work, and with my current job and private life, it wouldn’t be reasonable. & I know some of you are going to think there’s no bother in trying to do that anyway, because I understand that you’re glad I came back blogging at all, but it was important to me as I challenged myself and I wanted to succeed in that matter.
Plus it was highly motivating, as the new year’s coming I wanted to change my bad habits and adopt new ones, so I can become a more hard-working person, someone who goes after her dreams and completes them.
I was watching the new season of Fuller House on Netflix the other day (…yes, I’m desperately addicted to Netflix) and in one of the episodes DJ was referred to as the “bye girl”, the kind of girl that forgets all about her friends and other commitments once she gets into a relationship : I realized that was me !
I started a job at Apple last February, it’s my first job & I really wanted to imply myself fully in it. Then I met my boyfriend with whom I fell so in love that I wanted to spend all my free time with, leaving out my personal projects unaccomplished.
It was him who started motivating me to take back my projects, and come back to this, between other things. I feel very blessed to have someone like him in my life, I want to respect my path and I won’t let go this time around, even if it takes me a couple tries before I get there. I will not be the “bye girl” – I got my wake up call.
I went to Zurich a couple weeks ago to see my best friend and we shot a bunch of photoshoots together – she modeled for me. This was an inspired look from the burlesque era. She was pretty thrilled with the results so I hope you’re gonna like the idea as much as she did, took me a while to edit this set but with much excitement 🙂 I also did her makeup.
Zurich is a very artsy city, it’s agreeable to walk and see awesome graffitis on the walls and enter cool museums exhibiting modern artworks. It’s also become a gluten-free friendly place where you can find restaurants making delicious dishes, such as the amazing burger I got at B.GOOD.
I took these pictures with my iPhone, it’s literally become my favorite tool to shoot because it’s just so easy and practical. I get to take cool photos with it, and edit them on the same device and post right from there as well… it’s so instant and awesome.
I picked up a new book at Urban Outfitters the other day, it’s “milk and honey” from Rupi Kaur… I started reading it in the bus, it’s beautifully raw and absolutely tearing me apart. I haven’t liked a book this much in forever; her feelings are so true and intense, yet she knows how to express them without being in the much… I want to be able to write down my own feelings like that. Maybe someday.
