Everything is never as it seems.

Long time, no posts. How was your christmas?
When I was looking for some looks and just wandering around on LookBook.nu I noticed that some people not only have pretty outfits, but also make such wonderful photographs. Here you can see a few of them. It's not really about the clothes, the pictures are so lovely!

A Thousand Reasons to Smile

It's been a long time since the last real 'A thousand reasons to smile' post. My camera wasn't working well and I just had been to busy. But now everything changed. I got my new camera. I love it. It's small and fits in my pocket. It's a Sony Cybershot WX1.
Time for a new post.

The idea behind this post is quite simple. "When life gives you a hundred reasons to cry, show life you have a thousand reasons to Smile." Every week I show you the beautiful things I've noticed. Through the pictures you can see what made me smile.

Christmas Lights

Don't you just love the holiday season? I can't wait to get some time outside of school and spend christmas with my family and friends. I'm still quite busy and can't post everyday, but I did collect some amazing christmas decorations. Normally I don't like those cheap christmas decorations with all those lights. But these really surprised me. Made me think of beautiful fairytales. Why isn't there this kind of decoration where I live?

Pretty Photographs

It's so cold outside. The only thing to do is drink hot chocolate. It's really tragic.
Anyways. I found a few pretty pictures I wanted to share. I really like the ones I came across this week.

Imaginary Picnic

Remember me telling you about one of my projects for 2010?
I always wanted to make a little film. Just a tiny one. With a few lovely images.
Anyway. I bought a digital camera, because my old one wasn't working anymore.
And you can make little films with acceptable quality with it.
So who knows? Maybe I'll make one soon. Once I get my camera.

But for now: This amazing little video by Nirrimi. Her first one.
You should check out her photography too. She's really one of my favourite photographers. Pretty as a Picture on DeviantArt

I'm very busy with school.. And so is Fleur. We hope we can post bigger pieces soon.

DIY 2010

DIY ToDoList 2010

2010 is going to be a year full of stress and changes. I'll have my exams and hopefully graduate. I'm going to move out of my parents house and start studying biology. I'm very excited, but also a little scared. Beside all of that I want to be creative and do fun things. So that's why I made this list. I got this idea from A Beautiful Mess. She made a DIY to do list. And so did I. A few DIY projects that I will do in 2010. I won't have time for it, but I'll make time for it, because it's amazing to do. And you'll hear all about it.

Make a piece of clothing. From scratch. Not that I've done this before. But I will.Make a collection of all the amazing recipes I tried. Nicely put together in a book.

Try out a huge part of my dad's old camera collection. Including polaroidcamera's. Can't wait.

Get creative with these bags. Add prints/fabrics/buttons/texts. (Not all at once of course.)

Make a huge painting. Something that isn't finished in a few seconds. Maybe a wallpainting. Or on a big canvas. I've always wanted to do that.Photograph and photograph and photograph. And do a lot of shoots together with Fleur. This photo is the result of one of our previous ones. Try new things, be creative and learn.

Make a video. It could be drawn, a music video, a stop motion. Who knows? I always wanted to do that. Look at these amazing little videos. Love them.

Wish me luck!

The Story of Winter

I love this little story. It's beautiful. Although we complain about so many things, a part inside us just loves winter: the cozy christmas evenings, hot chocolate, the lovely party dresses, snow, the feeling you get when you walk in a warm room after a long cold walk... I could go on forever. But just enjoy this lovely story by Elizabeth May. All credit goes to her!!

The Story of Winter

"I have to give you something," he said lightly, looking up at the expanse of sky stretched as far as the eye could see. "That's the way these things go. A deal is a deal."

"Right," I replied distractedly, wondering what he was gazing at.

"How about winter? I'll give you winter."

The night was cloudless. Inviting. I think I would live in the stars, if I could.
I glanced at him, studying his profile. I wasn't sure if he was mocking me or if he actually meant anything he said. I would never find out. I would die not knowing.

"Winter?" I asked, hoping that for just a moment he would look at me. "You can't just...give me a season. That's not possible."

He laughed. I loved it when he laughed. His cheeks dimpled; it took away his intensity and for one joyous moment, he appeared less burdened. Then his smile faded and he said softly, "Sure I can. I can give you anything you desire. Any season you wish. But I think winter fits best."

"Because I'm a frigid bitch?" I was joking. I wanted to see him laugh one more time before everything ended.

Finally, he looked down at me. Bottomless, steel grey eyes met mine and I lost everything I was thinking. Jaded thoughts and doubts and worries fled. I felt weightless, liberated. When he touched my cheek, his hand was warm. When he kissed me, it was achingly soft. He whispered against my lips, "There's beauty in it. Crystalline snow, silver skies…despite it, everything seems more overwhelming. The cold, the death, the lack of light. But you know what?"

"What?" I breathed.

"They always appreciate you more when you're gone."

Pretty Photographs

According to our poll you all want to see some more Photography. And I really don't mind showing you more. I hope I can do a whole new photoshoot very soon, but I can't promise anything. Therefore I'll show you a few pretty photographs I found hiding somewhere on the internet.
