Are you feeling the pastels yet? Are there easter eggs on the countertop at the depanneur? If you are not into the commercial hype of Western holidays, maybe you can find solace in the natural rhythm of the earth. It’s really just about Spring. It’s about sprouting, budding, beginning, hatching…it is that moment on the cusp of growth. It’s about birth. Or shall we say re-birth, since Winter will come again and then another Spring will kindle re-birth again.
These images are for you to savour. Taste them as if you are eating a meringue. Let them melt on your tongue. As much as they are about high-fashion, they are absolutely not about the clothes. They are a feeling, a mood, a moment. The crumbling broken statues and columns evoke a feeling of walking among the ruins of an old temple. The light and the colours are fresh. It is the morning. The day is new.
I see a still moment. A moment to breathe. A time out. A little gift of time alone with yourself. Just look out the window and stay there for a few minutes. Your nervous system will adjust to the slower rhythm, the lack of stimulation. Try. See how hard it is to do that.
And here is a little facial tip from Michelle Phan. She is my make-up teacher. I came to make-up late in life (like, last year) and have been really enjoying playing with colours and powders thanks to her.
