A Victorian Outfit & Some Gloria & Isaure Magic


how are you? how is thursday treating you?

my morning started as usual with my walk. it was not a very pleasant one because it was raining and being ice cold plus my radio app was not behaving and same with the podcast i wanted to listen to. hopefully the rest of the day is to be better. press days are starting to happen and i think i am to go to a couple of them today. hopefully to find wonders:)) then a coffee at the albion might happen!

i am too putting this up on my wall:

this is your life. do what you want and do it often. 
if you don't like something, change it. if you don't like your job, quit. if you don't have enough time, stop watching tv. if you are looking for the love of your life, stop; they will be waiting for you when you start doing things you love. stop over-analysing, life is simple. all emotions are beautiful. when you eat, appreciate every last bite. life is simple. open your heart, mind and arms to new things and people, we are united in our differences. ask the next person you see what their passion is and share your inspiring dream with them. travel often; getting lost will help you find yourself. some opportunities only come once, seize them. life is about the people you meet and the things you create with them, so go out and start creating. 
life is short, live your dream and wear your passion.

 my strawberry girl self portrait story
Self-portrait by Alice Saga
she was supposed to be the good girl sharing strawberries to the world. but after having plucked these beauties all day she was tired plus starving so in the end she decided to devour them all to herself. gorging loving:)

this creature greeted me after my saturday morning walk:))
The Gardens, London

this day i attended an art class (they call this group love art + tea). it was such a wonderful morning & afternoon. we were supposed to paint this wonderful art work as created by john lovett. it's the beauty of venice.

Vintage Outfit
 vintage dress, belt & bangles together with converses.

i am off to toasted for some wonderful tea (rhubarb mixed with a couple of other tasty thingies), planning my child bride character. i am hugely inspired by coco rosie and their song/ video of the same name. i will too have a think about the next character i am to portray, it's one many many has been inspired by and that is ophelia. 

i wanna end this diary post with this poem by melissa-kelly martin, i came across it on tumblr the other day.

devour this one!!!

with love from ophelia

i haven't seen you
for what seems like an age,
not even a word torn from the
corner of a page
have you scrawled to remind me
that you knew i was here,
alone in the dark
with my mouth full of fear
that you'd never return.

while i've tried to remember the 
sound of your voice
my heart has bled violets
i've had no other choice,
and now you've returned, you don't 
know my face;
your eyes are blank walls
and nobody tells
why all i can see
is my reflection in them;
no recognition
of our skins' intuition -
what is the condition?
i don't understand.

and now i'm in water
surrounded by flowers
whose petals i've cried
over hours and hours.
my heart has grown heavy
and i'm starting to sink,
my hair turns to willow,
my eyes cherry-bloss pink,
returning to flowers 
is all i can think.
from out of my chest
 sprout blue hollyhocks
all round me is silent 
but the sound of a clock
and the roll of the water
 as it circles my face
like translucent lace;
the veil of my watery pall.

i went to chislehurst the other day to location scout. found this sunshine beauty where i will try to create my strawberry girl today:) 

Det är nu som livet är mitt
Jag har fått en stund här på jorden
Och min längtan har fört mig hit
Det jag saknat och det jag fått

- gabriella's sång

the above quote is from a song that is part of kay pollak's movie as it is in heaven (an absolutely amazing movie). mr. pollak has too written a book that i have turned to over and over again (sadly not translated in to english), att välja glädje.

see the beauty of helen sjöholm here.
