I truly love “vintage Paris”. At least, that’s how I call it.
Any place that looks old, and from another time : I’m instantly in love. For example this metro station is unlike most that you’ll come across. First of all, it’s outside… I hate when the metro goes underground. The city is so beautiful, you want to be able to see it while traveling.
And they kept the architecture from the early XXth century, which is so Parisian. If you want to check the area on foot, I highly recommend. It’s Rive Gauche, super chill and safe neighborhoods. Take line 6, and stop at Saint Jacques 😊
This trip to LA made me realize that I have the potential of turning around my life if I want to. Not saying that it’s an easy task, but that it’s a possibility, if I want it. Knowing that gives me confidence, and hopefulness.
I definitely noticed that my skills were still intact, I still know how to write, draw, sing, make a video or edit pictures the way I feel them… I thought I’d lost that.
I need to figure out a way to stay in touch with me, while away from LA, because it’s gonna be tough to feel this good and enlightened when I’m back in Paris. Life is just so much different there, and I’m a truly LA girl at heart, so that’s harsh for me.
I have new limits I didn’t know about, that I can’t cross anymore. I’m looking forward to how I’m gonna re-invent a new life for myself, because that’s what I need in order to feel better.
This is my least favorite moment. Well, let’s not dwell on this, just enjoy the last couple of days I have. Hopefully I’ll be able to come back sooner than later, with projects under my belt. Only time will tell.
Here’s another glimpse at Downtown, and its buildings, cars & newspaper.
LA, you are driving me crazy… but no matter what happens, I don’t want to go far away.
The end of my vacay is nearing, and I just hate knowing that fact. There’s no place in this whole wide world, where I’d rater be depressed and sarcastic. Something about this city makes me feel like I’m normal… probably because no one is, so that’s the actual “normal” here. Just being yourself, you exist in layers, and people praise you for it. Gosh, I wish this was the case where I live.
Whenever I’ll need to feel my normal-self again, I’ll just be right back at ya ! 💋
Last pictures from our day out in Santa Barbara, all in black and white, and a little video for the memories 🖤
I will gladly come back here anytime I can, the city offered so many great experiences. Between the heavy-poured cocktails, the amazing seafood and smoked fishes, the wine tastings, the cool people and the good finds in vintage stores… it was really lovely.Continue reading →
