Saved

This week has been really rough. I helplessly felt darkness consuming me from within; insecurities, sorrow and hopelessness persistently gnawed at me. All I wanted to do was to sleep till this mess was over, avoiding stressful social interactions. Luckily I didn’t chicken out of meeting my old friend Mia. After talking for a while to catch up on our lives, we moved on to taking some random shots, experimenting with material that was lying around. I wanted to keep it...

02 January 2017

I’m supposed to do a hundred things for uni, but I’m treating myself some extra days of vacation instead. Probably sounds familiar to the most of you. Anyways, today was a lovely day for the following reasons: My love, Robin and I had late breakfast while the sun was shining through the big living room windows, flooding the apartment with a warm glow (I should have taken a photo of that, damn). The first thing I did this morning was to run to said...

365 Project – Week 11

Hello, my loves! <3 I know I know, this post is super late. I’m not sure how much longer I’m going to share my self-portraits. I’ve been in a creative slump and it’s giving me a hard time.

Autumn has finally come, bringing beautiful colours I was able to use for some of my shoots (if you follow me on Facebook or Instagram, you probably already have seen some photos). In fact, the two shoots I had this week were one of my favourite ones ever, especially the one with a guy in front of my lens! :) Also, my dear blogger friend Karina visited me in Lucerne and we had a lovely cosy time together. As...

365 Project – Week 9

A wonderful week, and at the same time my worst week recently. I had some great heights, including an unexpected nocturnal conversation with a stranger that lasted till the morning and feeling the comfort of my flatmates (and friends and classmates) in times of crisis. I embrace these positive memories tightly and hold them close to my heart. On the other hand, there was the breakdown of my camera, accompanied by an almost-breakdown of my sanity. It’s exhausting to fluctuate...
