We went to the Silicon Valley…
I’ve wanted for a while to visit Apple’s headquarters in Cupertino, and my dream came true !
First stop – at the Apple Store nearby, nicknamed “Visitor Center” where you can find cool goodies that you wouldn’t be able to get at any other store. Fun fact, they don’t have a Genius Bar… which makes sense, because it’s mostly a pit stop for tourists.
What’s nice is that they have a cafeteria. I loved the design of the building, it’s incredibly beautiful and aesthetic. They have a map of Apple Park inside, that you can visualize via iPads in augmented reality, which is fun.
Second stop for me is beyond limit for tourists – without going into details, I was lucky enough to experience the breathtaking circular spaceship that is Apple Park. It is absolutely bananas inside !
I can’t tell or share anything about it, except for my feelings which were basically : “OMGosh”, “Is this real life ?!”, “I can’t believe where I am right now !”, “Can somebody pinch me because I’m having a stroke”, “I NEVER WANT TO LEAVE !” pretty much… It was the highlight of my trip.
“When you put love out in the world, it travels”
Back to my Californian hometown… Redondo Beach !
I consider the South Bay area to be the best in Los Angeles, not only because of the amazing beaches, but also the chill vibes and beautiful houses.
When I first arrived in L.A. in 2012 (oh boy, that’s a long time ago !) I had no clue this place would be so pretty. I totally fell in love, and it obviously broke my heart when I moved to Paris. Time away has become an eternity…
I had been waiting for too long to be reunited with my best friend Noah again; I don’t know which one of us is crazier – probably me, but I do know we complete each other’s silliness. & I missed that, so much.
We spent such a great afternoon together, my sister was there as well. We chatted, and laughed and I just felt like myself again. It was like, I hadn’t been myself since I had gone. This trip completely restored me.
The Eternal Question
What are your eternal questions… mine are :
“Should I redo my highlights ?” – I can’t figure out if I like myself better as a blonde or brunette.
“What are we eating ?” – at any time of the day.
“Should I save up for an actual trip, or just go back to LA ?” – usually the latter.
“What’s going on ?” – because I don’t really pay attention, even if I pretend to.
“Why’s that person looking at me ?” – I’m a mix of paranoid & introvert.
And so on… 🙂
It gets weirder & weirder…
I was so excited about this little project of mine… had to give some arguments in order to convince my model to bare that much sparkly makeup on her face, but since we’ve been working together for years now she trusts my odd artistic choices. She says that she never knows what my photoshoots & videos are gonna end up looking like, but that she’s always happy with the results and that is why I’m able to get weirder & weirder… check the video down below, to get what I mean by that.
There’s also a version of “Angels” on Vimeo, if you prefer it to YouTube
