Even if I can't decide whether or not the lyrics are ironic or not,

I can't get enough of this song. If you've ever, by mistake or by habit, visited this site, you know what I'm talking about. Irony. Chopsticks.

Actually, scratch that. I take it they're not ironic at all, but quite beautiful. But taken out of context, some sentences could definitely be quite funny.

Anyway, melikes a lot. You?

So good to be reminded of that all you need to be is weird.

Eh...yes. This is a wedding invitation commission. Awesome.

Picture Post

Frankly, I couldn't care less for trends and fashion nowadays. There was a time when I would custom decorate my Reeboks in the style of Madonna a la '83 (this was in the 00's, mind you), and ran around looking in vintage shops for that specific item that was going to make me feel like the coolest cat in school. I was sixteen. Things change. I've changed. Thank God.

Now, don't get me wrong, I think style and the idea of feeling and looking great is as fun as it is important. But it doesn't rule my life nor my wallet. And I like it that way. Consumerism is a topic I'm not going to get into here, but let's just say I'm not all for it.

Still, we can all use some style inspiration from time to time. When I need some guidance, this is who I turn to. Timeless, effortless, stylish and just plain doable, I'm in. Can't go wrong here, can we?

Plus, the more timeless your wardrobe is, the less money and time you'll have to spend on it. All in all, 
less consuming.

So from me to you, the style of Francoise Hardy! 

Botox is not for everyone.

Do you have a style fav?

Minor update: I read this and somewhat regret my use of the word 'timeless'.  Priceless.

Spring Cleaning

I just got back in from having seen an old friend for coffee. A friend who, frankly, manages for a couple of instants to drain me from any kind of energy and hope for the coming future. You know those friends whom you've known for a long long time, and who you somewhere along the road kind of grew apart from? But it's just hard to communicate that that's what happened?

Well, I've known this friend for many years, and it's not without a little bit of guilt that I'm writing this. But to be honest, I'm not taking this anymore. There has got to be something wrong when you leave a coffee shop feeling robbed of something (other than money for an overpriced cappuccino), and just want and need to talk to someone dear immediately. I don't want to have those kinds of feelings about people I call friends anymore. (And yes, I've tried to communicate to her how I feel about this, but fruitless attempts, all of them.)

Nowadays, I feel like we're always encouraged to change, grow and improve ourselves. I'm all for this, and I love that it's become a pretty integrated part of our western society, the ability to change and move on. Toss off shoes that all of a sudden got too small. The only thing is that no one talks about how difficult it seems to be for the people around us to accept this change. Or rather, it's a real truth teller when you change to see who your real supporters are and notice those who aren't (hopefully, they're not that many). I'm always a bit baffled when I'm forced to accept that no, this friend is not supporting me or my growth. The real strength lies in the ability to say nope,  don't have time for this anymore.

So, much like Robert Plant sings about spring cleaning for the May queen, I'm having one too.
And truth be told, it feels great. 

I'm curious, do you have an experience similar to this one?

I'm back.

I took care of whatever it was that was bringing me down, and like the grass finding it's way up underneath the melted snow, I too am here to see spring blossom. Sometimes it's that easy. Woohoo!
