JOURNAL | Six Goals for 2016

Leave a comment
Articles

Over half of this year has already gone by in a very painful flash. So many people I admired, for either their talent, their genius or their kindness, have passed this year leaving me with a growing list of Dead Idols™. A lot of things have happened since January – new friends have come and gone, arguments have blown up and fizzed into thin air, we’ve suffered a major loss in the family – and […]

I have to admit I feel extremely embarrassed yet unusually excited to post this. Anyone who knows me knows that I am always, without fail, the one behind the camera. I’ve never had my picture taken properly – that means, not including cellphones or pictures with people I love or taken on holiday. I’ve never been the one that has to stand there and at least try to look pretty. So when Caterina of Kateidoscope (who […]

PHOTOSHOOT | Neon Sunset

Beauty / Fashion / Photography

It’s that time of the year again when Caterina from Kateidoscope.com asks me to take pictures of her for her blog, and I decide to do her makeup to match her clothing. I’m quite shocked at how well this look turned out considering it was completely unplanned – I just knew I wanted to use yellow. Everything else was decided as I went along with the brush. Makeup look details, explanatory chart and products list coming […]

Hadn’t shot digital in such a long time! My new friend Caterina from Kateidoscope asked me to take some pictures of her for her blog (go and check it out, she’s one of those cool, serious, stylish bloggers). Here are some of my favourites. Brighton is a really nice set for this kind of photoshoot since there’s always an empty street with very pretty and cute houses, either very bright and fun or very neutral […]

The Shadows in Fairytales

Art / Photography / Things I make

On a weekend trip back home to Lisbon, my dad and I decided to drive up to Sintra to visit a particular monument that people usually miss, since it’s nestled between several other major ones – Palacio da Pena, Quinta da Regaleira, Castelo dos Mouros and Convento dos Capuchos to name a few. This one is very small and, as most small monuments in the forest are, it’s also incredibly pretty. It’s called the Chalet da Condessa – translated roughly, The […]

Kay

I’ve never asked her about her height. I’ve never had to since she is the tallest person I know, and getting the exact number would probably make me feel even shorter. Already in her mid-thirties, she has the maturity of someone much older and the kindness and open arms of someone much, much younger. Unlike many other twenty-somethings who fervently admire waifish celebrities, I have been in complete awe of Kay since the day I […]

From Lisa Wassmann’s official website: Born and raised in 1982 in West Berlin, Lisa Wassman currently lives and works in Berlin, Athens and all over the globe.

She began drawing and painting at a very young age, keeping her artistic senses sharp until she […]
