Can we howl at the moon forever and bury our pictures in the woods...

As I have said before, the past few months I've been feeling a little too submerged into the real world for me to bare. That may sound odd to you but I do cherish the moments I spend alone with my spirit; writing, listening to calm lullabies and enjoying long forgotten tales that only celluloid can deliver. The mist around me keeps getting substantial and I wait for the affectionate moon to bring me back my inspiration and vitality. This post is born from my current state of mind and it is only a spark of the blazing wave of acknowledgement I plan on conjuring my way.

These quotes from one of my favourite companion come to remind me that even though it is acceptable to live in dreams and books sometimes, reality hits hard and one must not forget to live and wave that magic wand to wonders.

It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live. Happiness can be found even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light…”
Albus Dumbledore

I am grateful to the person who is always there to catch my hand when I feel engulfed in apathy. Hope I didn't go on babbling too much; have a wonderful week!

In time you'll know the answers... For She is me

I've always loved to be able to see how people grow, evolve and change over the years. Nowadays it is quite easy to immortalize it through photographs, but is a photograph able to capture the soul of the moment? Don't you find it fascinating? 

Last night got me thinking on the matter and I started browsing old photographs to see if I can find just that in myself. I was quite amazed to witness that even though about ten years have passed by without notice, I did not change much in my appearance, contradictory to my beliefs, dreams and convictions. 

I decided thus to share a bit of my past with you darlings, for I believe that the past makes you understand a person better.







I am quite curious to know how you have evolved and how that makes you feel.
Feel free to share some of your assumptions with me.

Perfume sets the mood...

I finally can share with you darlings an item that has been on my wish list for a very long time. As most of you already know, I am a big fan of burlesque star Dita Von Teese, thus explaining the absolute need to own one of her perfumes.

This is one of the most seductive scents that has drifted my way; it features bulgarian rose, peony, spicy bourbon pepper and smoky wood, all draped by an enticing 1930's bottle with a black tassel! I cannot explain how feminine an act it is to press the ball atomizer and adorn yourself in these wonderful flavors!

"It had to be elegant, glamorous, sophisticated, sexy, dark, and mysterious”

Perfume truly sets the mood and I got in the mood of crafting and experimenting again, as seen from my faux bob. The crafting part comes from the dress since this beauty is a couple of months old. I did not actually know what to do with it since I did not like the high neck or the way it fit my body, but that fabric was too beautiful to pass over.

I modified it during my spare time on Christmas and I am pretty delighted with the result! I need to spend more time crafting since I miss it so! This grownup life tends to become a barrier to my creativity, have you ever felt that?
