RICOR- some pretty pictures.

…Eating grilled corn at the beach while your hair is still salty and the sun is going down…

Firts of all, I'd like to say a huge, huge sorry for the lack of posting to last couple of weeks. I returned from Kenya the second of August being sick. The sort of sick that makes it impossible to do anything, I suppose everybody knows how's it like... So I spent my last month of summer vacation in bed.(good thing that I have one sweet boyfriend to take care of me.:) Oh well... But now I'm healed and back in blogging wonderland, starting with sharing these amazing photographs I've "found". For more loveliness by this Taiwanese photographes click here. Ready to be enchanted?

Talked about hair inspiration. Don't you just love this?! I wish I could do my hair like this. :)

I adore everything about these art works (because really, that's what they are, no?) but especially the styling deserves a special mention! I felt like an Asian princess when I saw these photographs for the first time. xx

PS: news from Kenya coming soon! And I'll get back to all the comments on previous post as soon as possible!

happy list.

...Feed the seagulls in Long Island and write new songs in the wet sand...

I've been wanting to post up another happy list for days now and because my camera doesn't want to wake up and I think these little lists need to be a part in my blog (even though I do not own any of these photographs) here is one. Enjoy, sweeties!

Danny Roberts
This man is wonderful, his prints magical and his collabrations with Gwen Stefani’s Harajuku Lovers, Forever21, Heutchy Shoes, Lancome, and Sundance Channel's Full Frontal Fashion impressive -to say the least-. I am a frequent visitor of his blog and am dearly in love with his painting movies. I'm a fan, and I know you'll love him too.

Luly Letty
Whenever I need fashion inspiration or just feel like looking at pretty outfits, I always find myself going through Maria's magical blog. I think she's enchanting and one of those rare lovelies who look enchanting in everything. She's truly beautiful, sweet and if you didn't know her already; go click on that link and fall head over heels in love with my fashion hero. lovelovelove.

Orla Kiely
I always get this happy feeling in my stomach (yes, you know the one!) looking at these clothes; they are all perfect. It feels as if Orla has designed my dream wardrobe – I know, I know, they are quite expensive, but i’m planning on putting back some money for some serious purchases when winter comes around. What do you think about the clothes?

Tim Walker + Lily Cole
I'm almost certain that everybody must love Tim Walker. So do I, although I wasn't a huge huge fan until I saw his photoshoot with the lovely Lily Cole -she's one of my favorite actresses and ,in my opinion, one of the most beautiful models alive-. The photographs are whimsical, fairytale-ish and typical for this great photographer.

And talking of Lily Cole...
The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus is an odd but fantastic movie starring Lily Cole, Heath Ledger, Johnny Depp, Colin Farrell, Jude Law, Christopher Plummer... And although I had to watch it twice to really understand the movie, I loved it to bits. Perhaps because of the gorgeous decor, adorable costumes, top actors, sweet scenes and smart story. Did you see it? What did you think of it? xx
ps; I'm off to Kenya the day after tomorrow, so no posts untill we meet again which will be about August 3th. Will miss you all to pieces!

the (not so) new shoes.

…Have some dripping gelato on the Piazzo di San Marco, then jump on your Vespa to meet your love, and when night sets, get married on a yacht. Why not?...

I've always been a "shoe girl" and I probably love my shoes too much because I keep wearing them untill they fall apart and even then I've never been quite capable of letting them go. I know, I know,... How sad am I?:) Well, obviously my dearest friend Laura also had this thought, so she secretly gave all my old (beloved) shoes to chararty and took me shopping.

Result? These wonderful Jane Austen-ish thrifted pair of shoes. They remind me of those old romantic times, where I would wear some utterly enchanting Charles Anastase dress (look at me pretending I can actually afford such a dress), be in Italy feeling like Audrey Hepburn in Roman Holiday and "Have some dripping gelato on the Piazzo di San Marco, then jump on my Vespa to meet my love, and when night sets, get married on a yacht. Why not?"

Want to come with me? xx

And I’d like to say a huge huge thank you to everybody that replied to the last post, you’re all such beauties and made me realise why I love blogging, I couldn’t even wait until tomorrow to post up these shoes (and my own photographs)! I have read and respond to each and every comment with joy and I wish I could take you all out eating! But because I can't do that, I've put you all on my link page and wrote something about all of you.

still not a great blogger...

...Fold some paper boats, maybe one will carry you out to sea where you can watch the stars through your kaleidoscope...

Family Affairs (literally, a mother and daughter partnership!) have one of the most beautiful lookbooks i’ve been lucky enough to stumble across. Of course, the clothes are beautiful themselves, but beautiful pictures always ’seal the deal’ for me. There is nothing like beautiful imagery to get me interested in a collection, but Family Affair doesn’t stop there – alongside each picture they detail what the model is wearing, just how it fits, a sugary sweet description of how and where the clothing should be worn and a poignant lyric to match.


Reading those beautiful descriptions sent me off into a little Daphne wonderland where all I wanted to do was write postcards, read books and eat cake, unfortunately the idea of me being so reallyreallyreally bad at this blogging-thing pulls me right back to the real world. I am so sorry for all these useless posts I've been posting up this last month and I promise that I'm working on photographs, drawings, bookreviews and anything I actually did all by myself, because honestly; how boring must it be for you beauties to read something you've probably read 100 times before?! So from now on; excpect posts with only my own photographs in it. Or should I just stop entirely? xx

PS: I am planning on giving away one of my drawings! If you want it, just comment here. : )

let me present: Cameras+Jane Austen.

I've been searching for a place to put my art and photography for a while before I stumbled upon the idea of Tumblr. I called my little 'portofolio' Cameras+Jane Austen and I'm really happy with how it turned out. And even better: because Tumblr ables you to set the date and time on which you want a post to be published, I wrote 10 posts who will show up while I am in Kenya. I just can not leave you alone, can I?:) Ohh, and another thing; As you can see above (nr.1) you can ask or tell me anything when you click on that link. All answers will show up on the blog (nr.2) unless of course, you just tell me something.
Someone who has found my Tumblr asked me wheter I was still going to create a formspring now that you can just ask me on CAJA (cameras and jane austen), I do not think I need to, do you? xx

dearest polaroid girl.

Meet -if you hadn't already- the enchanting Shini. She's beautiful, (on the out- and inside) inspiring, kind and one of my fashionheroes. I LOVE her blog, which is a wonderland filled with gorgeous outfits, stunning photography and plainly; perfection, to bits and pieces. Don't you think she makes a wonderful dearest polaroid girl? Well, so do I.

Isn't she the coolest?! xx
PS: I'm working on a Tumblr! I'll tell you all about it before I leave to Kenya. : )

a peep inside my room.

I have once been told that you can know everything you want about a person by just looking at their rooms and because I have never properly introduced myself, I had a little photoshoot with my desk. Have a look...

♥ Something I made for you.(:

♥ My room is filled with drawings, paper and it's starting to get hard to remember the real colour of my walls... paint everywhere.

♥ Remember the wishlist?


♥ Why am I so embarresed about loving Leonard Cohen?

How does your room looks like?
ps: I just found out about this wonderful artist called Heidi Burton via Art Pixie (really, I could write an ode to that blog) and you can win some of her enchanting art works here.
Wish me luck.
