ROMANTICISM

Romantic, a self expression or simply a feeling. I did this photoshoot with a friend because I wanted to capture my feelings, my mood, the way I feel during this time of the year. I wanted to portray my emotions. Perhaps, I can express it with a poem I borrowed from a famous write or a song I just listened. I can also portray it with a photoshoot, this is who I am.

(While doing the shoot, my friend’s cat came and wouldn’t leave my sight)

FALL FALL, BABY

Fall Fall, Baby… Fall its here and well not my favorite season but every second should be enjoyed in life and I’m not planning to stop celebrating life. On my second picture,  you can see that I’m at the beach. Well, Tom and I did a summer farewell. We went to the beach,  brought a blanket, pillows, a ukulele and enjoyed a relaxing afternoon before it gets cold again for six long months. I’m also sharing some of my looks for this season.

FOR THE LOVE OF FALL

Hello lovely humans,

I would like to share with you some pictures from a shoot I did with a photographer I love. Her style is great, her vibes are contagious and she is very very sweet. We did this shoot on a cold afternoon on the beach, we are in the east coast and October is definitely cold. It was fun overall, I got to relax, have tea and sushi afterwards and enjoy an empty beach just for us.

I also got to use my beautiful Handira or also called “Moroccan wedding blanket” by Atlas Secrets. I loved wearing it, so cozy and perfect for this season. If you don’t know what Handiras are let me tell you a bit about them.  Handers are given as a gift to a bride. They are made with love by the bride’s female family members for her to wear and carry to her new house. While making the blanket they sing beautiful songs, this is why it is believed that Handiras will protect the bride from the evil eye and bring her good luck and fortune. The blankets are also used by westerns as a decorative item or accessory, I respect their tradition but love also using it in a different way. Big thanks to Naljae that taught me a bit of her culture.
