The Promise

.
I remember this post called "Being Myself" that Alexandra wrote few month ago on her blog Alex's Closet
She was saying how important it is to stay ourselves, in life in general, but also in the blogging industry, especially in the blogging industry!
You can loose yourself so easily, ending up buying and wearing clothes or makeup just for a review on the blog, or just because they would look good on pictures. 

To be honest, that's something I have done by the past, buying some beauty products just because they're new, just because they would make a perfect review on the blog,...

Never again.
When I started this new blog, I promised myself that I would never ever buy anything again, whatever it's clothes, beauty or accessories, thinking "Oh, let's buy this, it's gonna look cool on the blog!..."
I found myself so ridiculous at that time.

Now, I buy lipsticks because they look beautiful on my lips, no matter what it's gonna look good on the blog or not; I wear clothes that look like me, which I am comfortable in, no matter what they're stylish or not, they look like myself and that's all that matters.
And if they're end up on the blog, good.  If not, I don't care...!

So there we go, that's my days off outfit, no makeup, legging, man shirt, leather jacket,... such a messy outfit but so comfy, and so me ;)

Je me souviens de cet article "Being Myself" qu'Alexandra avait écrit sur son blog Alex's Closet.
Elle disait a quel point il était important de rester soit-même. 
D'évoluer, certes, mais de rester soit-même, avec son propre style et de ne pas essayer de se transformer pour suivre les tendances.
A l'époque cet article m'avait vachement marqué, très certainement parce que je me rendais déjà compte a quel point il était facile de tomber dans ce cercle, selon moi assez malsain, de vivre a travers son blog.

Pour être tout a fait honnête, je suis passée par la, j'achetais tel ou tel produit juste pour faire une revue sympa sur le blog ou en video, je portais parfois telle ou telle fringue juste pour quelques photos, parce que ça ferait cool sur le blog, ...
Je me trouvais tellement ridicule a l'époque.

Aujourd'hui, j'achète un rouge a lèvres parce qu'il est canon sur mes lèvres, et pas parce que ça fera bien d'en faire une revue sur le blog; 
Je porte des fringues qui me ressemblent, peut importe qu'elles soient dans la tendance ou stylées, je m'en fiche. 
Et si elles finissent sur le blog, cool, sinon on s'en fout...!

Alors voila, je vous présente la tenue de mes jours off, pas de makeup, legging en velours, chemise d'homme, veste en cuir... une tenue a la mords-moi le noeud, mais tellement confortable, et tellement... moi! ;)

Studio Vibes

I spend quite some time at The Ceramicists Studio, and I pretty much want to take pictures of everything when I am there.
For how long as I remember, I've always been obsessed with art tools; Pencils, paint, drawing papers,... so when I am in an artist studio, I am feeling like a child in a playground!
I used to love to go art shopping with my mum to buy stuff for her framing art.

Also, the yellow artificial light I found quite horrendous in a first place, is finally pretty cool, it gives kind of a retro vintage vibes to the pictures that I like a lot!

-----------------

Je passe pas mal de temps au The Ceramicists Studio, et lorsque je suis la-bas, c'est simple, je veux tout prendre en photo!
D'aussi loin que je me souvienne, j'ai toujours été en admiration devant les accessoires et les fournitures d'art; Les pinceaux, les pots de peintures, les papiers a dessins, etc... 
Lorsque ma maman faisait son shopping chez Boesner sur Bordeaux pour ses travaux d'encadrements, je l'accompagnais toujours avec plaisir!

Au Ceramicists Studio, j'ai toujours eu un peu de mal a être satisfaite du rendu des photos car la lumière artificielle est jaune et...uhhh...je déteste tellement...mais tellement la lumière jaune...; 
Mais finalement, je les trouve plutôt cool ces photos, un brin vintage, une ambiance un peu rétro que j'aime beaucoup!

Sunset from the rooftops

Sunset Rooftops sky view rainbow London Landscape Photography www.lexieblush.co.uk
.
There are a few buildings in my area, and unfortunately more and more (grrrhh...); and there's this particular one which I'm walking past very often, quite tall, nothing fancy, almost scary when you start climbing the stairs.

It was 7pm that day when I decided to explore this building and its rooftop, I didn't expect to see anything special, it was raining, the sky was grey and cloudy and I was not sure to have the best view from the top.

Well... that day, I got the feeling that the sky was waiting for me to get on top on the building to reveal its magic!
I was amazed! 
I literally climbed from the moody weather to a happy colourful sky.

Of course, I stayed up there for 1h30 (ended up with no battery on my camera and on my phone...), I couldn't leave it was too beautiful.
The sun offered me its best show that evening, I saw the sky in every possible colours, the rain over the clouds, a rainbow and then an other one,...
It was crazy!

---------------------

Il y a quelques très grands immeubles dans mon quartier, et il y en a d'ailleurs de plus en plus en construction... malheureusement...;
Et il a celui-la, ce bâtiment, a coté duquel je passe régulièrement, qui ne paye pas de mine, très haut, tout gris, dont les cages d'escaliers font un peu peur.

Il était 19h ce jour-la, et je décide d'aller explorer ledit bâtiment
Oui, oui, comme d'autres vont faire une ballade dans un parc, ou se balader en ville, faire les magasins,.., moi je vais explorer les immeubles. Voila.
#passionbuildingforever
#nocomment

J'étais surtout curieuse de voir comment serai la vue d'en haut, mais je n'espérais pas grand chose car il pleuvait et le ciel était gris et couvert de nuage.
Et bien, ce jour-la, j'ai eu l'étrange sentiment que le ciel avait attendu patiemment que je sois arrivée au dernier étage de cet immeuble pour me montrer de quoi il était capable!
C'était magique!
J'avais littéralement grimpé les étages du temps, du plus triste et gris, au plus joyeux et coloré!

Je suis restée perchée la-haut pendant 1h30, je ne pouvais pas décrocher mes yeux de ce ciel qui m'offrait le plus beau des spectacles, il est passé par toutes les couleurs possibles, m'a montré un arc-en-ciel, puis un deuxième, s'est amusé a faire couler un petit rideau de pluie de temps a autre histoire de rafraichir le tout... c'était un véritable show!

Just try it on

I am one of those people who watch things, shoes, clothes, accessories,... but don't try it on.
Is it a lack of curiosity, or a kind of laziness, I don't know!

I usually need to have a visual crush to decide to try a piece on, otherwise I just look at it which is useless, it's not gonna jump on me and force myself to go check in a mirror!

Some pieces only reveal their beauty once they are worn, and it has been the case with this bomber.
It looked completely normal, almost boring on the hanger, but as soon as I put it on, Bam! 
Perfect fit, perfect colour for my skin, perfect shape... I loved it!

So, now, I am trying to remember those 4 words when I go shopping "Just try it on"!

Shoreditch Graffitis

.
There one thing that makes me completely excited, taking pictures!
I could wake up at 4 o' clock in the morning, stay awake the whole night, climb on rooftops, walk for hours... just to take pictures.
It makes me so happy, just me, the city and my camera.

I don't pretend being a photographer, and I don't know anything about photography, but what I know is that I fucking enjoy taking pictures.
It makes me so happy. And that's the most important, right? 

That day, I was supposed to quickly go to Shoreditch to pick up my glasses, and I ended up walking for 2hours, getting lost in the streets, taking pictures of graffitis.
They are literally everywhere, on the walls, on the ground, on the windows... you just have to turn your head to see an other one.

Open your eyes and enjoy it! ;)
