"I remember doing a shoot for Herb Ritts, hanging off the Eiffel Tower — that wasn’t your usual day at the office. It was terrifying and in the end you couldn’t really tell how high I was because the photographer was scared of heights so he was quite far away from me. It only happened rarely, but sometimes you did feel that you were contributing to a piece of art … The make-up, lighting and photographer turn you into a different person: I could never prefer that person, because that would be dangerous.”
They’re synonymous. Inability to sleep = painting my nails + catching up on blogs + blogging + writing + working on assignments/articles for PLASTER. It’s bloody fantastic knowing (and admiring!) how much I can achieve during the ungodly hours when the rest of the world (okay, just the northern hemisphere if we’re going to be all technical).
I am currently suffering from a major hand cramps and some minor form of carpal tunnel syndrome from all this clicking, typing, and scribbling of notes. It’s entirely worth it though; I’m so excited - so you should be too! - for the upcoming, m a s s i v e changes for my blog. I’m more than ready for much needed re-vamping and making over of La Couturier! I’ve changed since a year and a half ago when I first started writing there, and so, it is just about time it evolves and progresses alongside with me.
It shall be a brand new start, in synchronization with the approaching of another milestone for me as a legal adult, heading off to uni. It’s romantic isn’t it? The timing.
“Sometimes, when we’re lying together, I look at her & I feel dizzy with the realization that here is another distinct person from me, who has memories, origins, thoughts, feelings that are different from my own. That tension between familiarity & mystery meshes something strong between us. Even if one builds a life together based on trust, attentiveness & mutual support, I think that’s it’s important that a partner continues to surprise.”— Barack Obama, about wife Michelle (1996).
