When it’s sunny and I’m shooting in black and white, I always get this feeling of a great, strong sun shining upon us with all the warmth it could give.
A jumper in black and white, my black and white Vans, black jeans, a black shirt. A mighty sun.
They promised us good weather for the whole weekend here in the village (aka Brussels). Promise upheld on Saturday, betrayed on Sunday. The sun did not come out and the clouds do not let it be warmer than 15-16 degrees.
But you know how it is – when life gives you lemons…I feel like I should start drinking much more tequila.
Starting the new week with some energy.
In my daily course of work, there are three kinds of days: days with meetings with clients, days without meetings with clients, days with social events following office hours.
Then those days can be broken down to more categories: days when you know your client and they’re cool, days when you know your client and they’re stiff, and days when you don’t know your client (and then you’re stiff – at least I am!)
Today is one of those days with the cool client. Therefore, picking up on last night’s inspiration, I put on this navy-based outfit with booties.
Which I’ve changed for stiletto’s at the office.
Actually, I should have written “lazy”. Because that’s what I’ve been for days now!
Doing much better psychologically, I though I would indulge myself a little bit this past week and give in to all temptations: food, not going to the gym, not making new music, not updating the blog.
Now, I promise I’m going back to all these, dieting included! I give myself 4 months to lose these extra 5-7 kilos I’ve always wanted to get rid of. I know it’s not that challenging, but this is how lazy I am.
The navy theme has nothing to do with laziness, though. I’ve always found it to be super-chic, but with an extra effort, despite the minimalism of it. I’ve always loved blue, both as a colour and as a state of mind, because it reminds me so much of the sea and the sky. And I’m a creature of the sea, no doubt about it.

It does not happen often that I want to cry because something is too beautiful to bear, but that was the exact feeling I got browsing through the website of the Gucci Museum.
The museum is located in Florence (I want to cry again because of how beautiful this city is – plus the good times I’ve had there, but that’s another story) and will be in my absolute list of to-do’s next time I visit my favourite Italian city….
I’ve been away from blogging for a few days now…not without a reason though, but because it was again due to unpleasant circumstances, I would rather focus on what’s coming next, rather than fall in the self-pity well that I find so easy to get out of.
So, the first thing I do every time I break up, is dive into books and movies. I read every night anyways, and try to go to the movies at least twice a month, plus all the private screenings at home, but when I go through a break-up I mean serious cultural bombarding. I even have my cultural dealers, friends that supply me with books and movies, and the occasional Americal TV series that everyone who is anyone is talking about but I haven’t even heard of.
Quotes like “Bond mistrusted anyone who tied his tie with a Windsor knot. It showed too much vanity. It was often the mark of a cad.” or thinking about Diane Keaton in Annie Hall are always a good excuse to spend some time re-reading or re-watching these classics.
