First allow me to begin by giving thanks to all those sweet people who took the time to lend a helping hand to a struggling fellow blogger at my last post. Your words of optimism and through sharing your own personal experiences helped make that fog much clearer to navigate within. Though I'm not out of those proverbial woods per se, I am hopeful I'll come out of them a brand new woman. So I've taken some time to brain storm ideas, some are pitiful and others outrageously impossible at this stage, but I am hopeful I'll uncover some middle ground between the two. And who knows I may possibly be able to venture into those more extravagant concepts of mine within the next few months. I'm staying positive however but feel free to contact me if you have any other suggestions still, I really do adore all your thoughts.

So whilst I'm in the midst of creating my plan of attack I'll stick to my roots and share this editorial with you. And since one or two of these images are hanging up on my mood board right now, inspiring me with my every glance, it was a no-brainer really. And I think what I love most about this is the eccentric escapade my mind dares upon whenever I appreciate it. For me, it kind of resembles a land before time, that prehistoric age of true nomads and their fight for real survival. Wandering through an untouched Earth, through sandy plains and salty air, wet spaces and rocky surfaces. A place merged with factuality and fictions, and one where our Neanderthal ancestors donned Pucci and Valentino and were not partial to arm parties. I admire the strong tribal connotations and the overall sense of mystery this whole editorial evokes within me, especially that scene of hand movement in the first and last images. Almost as if she's speaking to an imaginary friend or perhaps staving off her cheating lover. Or maybe it's something much more sinister, like an approaching carnivorous predator. The again maybe she's just engaging in a simple sun dance. The possibilities are endless no?

What does this conjure up for you?

  5. Hi Sonia! I'm glad to hear you are positive about getting back your inspiration! ... I find this editorial really impressive, for the sense of mistery that evokes and the girl's attitude.
    Have a nice weekend, dear

  7. Gosh you could seriously get so creative with telling the story of these photos.... I definitely get the cheating lover vibe - a lot of anger and heartbreak and confusion but all turmoiled into true jaw-dropping beauty and determination.

    I love it.

    I'm also glad that you're starting to feel better - see how many people believe in your incredible writing?? xxx

  10. I have no doubt you'll come out of them a brand new woman!! Super woman 2.0! Can't wait to see it although I still enjoy the old you. Take your time to clear the fog (I should do that too)! I love this editorial. Well it might be a dance but she looks like a mystical warrior princess. On the hunt and ready to strike. Have a happy Friday Sonia!!

  25. I've never seen such a punkish beach editorial before. Beach is all about white flowy clothing or pastel floral. This is rather different and I'm enjoying it. I particularly love the one of her solo shot far out in the water. I'm sorry I took a while to write back. I've missed out on some of your posts and references in this post is making me curious. Will be catching up on your other posts soon. BTW, I just followed you on GFC too. I always prefer GFC over bloglovin. Hahaha... so now we're acquainted on 2 platforms and Instagram as well.

    RYC:
    I’m confused. Which macarons? The traditional ones in the collage or those Japanese characters ones? I couldn’t bear to eat them at all. They really are meant for photo-taking. I don’t understand how the hub could just destroy Hello Kitty in one bite. He could have eaten Hello Kitty whole if he wanted but he decided to leave half the remains of it for me to take a pic. Of course they do not taste as good as they look at all. They are much too sweet. I saw your follow and followed you back too, Sonia! Love it when my blog friends are connected on more platforms. Cya around!

    1. I prefer GFC too! I hardly ever go on Bloglovin' so thank you for the follow there sweetie. Hooray for being even more connected! Re the post you mentioned here, I meant the funky Japanese character ones! They were like little works of art, though I can see how they'd probably taste like cardboard. Spending so much time shaping and designing them to look that way would probably leave not enough time to ensure they tasted even better lol! xx
