I don't really know what's happening to me. I'm totally a winter lover and specially a x-mas spirit lover, so in a normal conditions, I'd be SUPER EXCITED about x-mas that is just a month away and all this kind of stuff. But actually, I'm missing summer and the sea so so much that sometimes I even feel kind of nostalgic.
Maybe it's the stormy weather we've had this two last weeks (raining cats and dogs all the time...) or that it doesn't feel like EXTREMELY COLD yet... I don't know, but I keep thinking of summer and summer weather this much that I keep seeking for summer related photoshots all around. And I've found one amazing like this one you can see underneath :)

I have to say that I GOT COMPLETELY EXCITED when I arrived to the city this last Monday and saw that the x-mas lights were ready to be turned on! That means there's still hope for me, right?

Snapshot I took last friday in one of those moments that give meaning to the phrase I have written and engraved in my body.

(and no, it's not that one above)

I NEED and LOVE the SEA, above all.

Ok, I know these pictures were taken to show the amazing lipstick Arizona Muse is wearing for Tom Ford. But what have caught my eye is the AMAZING hair cut she has. Gosh, I def know that if one day I want a short haircut that'll be what I'm gonna do. I'm in love.

It suddenly came to my mind that this last summer we did a shooting for a fashion collection of a friend. And I thought that it'd be a great idea to show you how it was and the result of it.

Cristina Tresserres is a friend of mine who was studying fashion design and she was doing her final project of the degree that consisted in make a collection with 5 different outfits and do a shooting. So she asked Guillem (photographer), Danae, Tania and me to help her doing it and of course, I said YES! And it ended to be an amazing experience! :)

Danae is one of my best friends ever so it was nice to be there and see the shooting; the pictures were taken by Guillem Costas, a very talented young boy who lives in the same town as me. He is REALLY good so you MUST take a look at the website he has HERE or in his FLICKR.
Tania is a friend of Cristina and a great make-up artist who helped Danae, who was modeling, with the beauty part of the project :) and finally me, I was there taking shoots of the making off and specially recording short videos to edit them later (you can see the video result and the end of the post). Of course I'M NOT a professional of that and to say the truth it was actually the first time that I was doing something like this... so I think the result was quite good if we think about that.

It was a long afternoon in an amazing place that I love, near the town where we all live. We started like at 17:00pm and ended at 22:00pm so yes, we had to go fast and fast because the night was saying "hello" to us, and you know: without light... pictures are not has good as they have to be! But we made it and here you can see some of the pictures and that little video I did.

It was def worth it!

this one is my favorite of all the shooting. It really looks like a magazine picture, doesn't it?


P.S: I'm actually going to take a coffee with Danae in a few hours. It's been a long time since our last coffee together and I can't wait! :)

l i f e


I wanted so badly to lie down next to him on the couch, to wrap my arms around him and sleep. Not fuck, like in those movies. Not even have sex. Just sleep together, in the most innocent sense of the phrase. But I lacked the courage and he had a girlfriend and I was gawky and he was gorgeous and I was hopelessly boring and he was endlessly fascinating. So I walked back to my room and collapsed on the bottom bunk, thinking that if people were rain, I was  drizzle and he was hurricane.

"You live alone, creating your life as you go."
                                                         Edie Sedgwick

I wanna talk about one of my favourite contemporany art muses of the world: Andy Warhol's muse, Edie Sedgwick.
She was an American actress, model and socialité. She started to be famous when she acted in some of the Warhol's movies and the rest... is history. Named as "The Girl of the Year", "It Girl for the Vogue magazine" and "Yourthquake" (cultural, musical and fashion movement in 60s) by Diana Vreeland who said Edie was "An example of the youth cultural era." Also, it's been said the song "Femme fatale" by Velvet Underground is about Edie and her life.
But since she was a girl she had serious psiquiatric illness. Her whole life was not easy at all and she used to drink, smoke and take drugs the most part of her short life and unfortunatelly, that was the cause of the end of her life in 1971. But still now, she's such an icon for art and the elite socialité of New York in the 60s.

Long live, Edie!

If you want more about her you can read Andy Warhol's book "The philosophy of Andy Warhol: from A to B and Back Again" (Mi filosofia de A a B y de B a A), which I really enjoyed or you can watch "Factory Girl" a 2006 film about Edie Sedgwick with Sienna Miller as her.
And of course you can watch Andy Warhol's films with Edie in them.

Meanwhile, I leave here a video of her I really really LOVE talking about her parents views on her lifestyle, not really common then. I bet she was such a sweet girl.

Dreaming out loud

In the last 3 years, there's always a period of time that I really feel like leave all behind and start a new adventure; you know... go and live abroad for some time, maybe months, maybe years, maybe just one.
And I'm having this adventure-is-calling-me-period right now.

If things were so easy I'd leave now and take a flight to New York. Right now. 
Go there, start living, discovering, cry because everything's not going as you expected but smiling at every little new thing you find and laugh until you cry with every new people you find on your journey.
Because yes, not everything's easy. I know that. But it's worth living... it makes you grow up. Even more. And that's one of the things I really love about LIFE: it doesn't matter if you're 15 or 25 or 67 years old... there'll be always something new to find out, to suffer for, to smile for and worth living for that will make you grow up a little bit more.
And when that happens... is beyond fantastic.

And here you have the secret: the adventure-is-calling-me-period doesn't come out of nowhere... there's always something that makes it grow inside of me. And this time it was a video. 
I'd say a lot of things about it, but I just think that the best thing to do is let you see it. By the way, let me say one thing: put your earphones for a major enjoyment ;).

P.S: not my fault if your adventure-is-calling-me-period wakes up in you after watching it.

Just enjoy!
