An Alice Solantania Saga Explorer Tuesday:)

happy tuesday beautiful creatures

i had a couple of appointments in central london today & decided that afterwards i was to have an adventure/ explorer day. i just started wandering around, exploring streets i had not been on before & entered churches and whatever buildings i came across or simply put just devoured it all from the outside. in the end i came to st. james park which is not new to me but every single time i am in awe of the birds in this wonderful place:)))
Whole Foods, St.Paul's Church, Black Swan in St.James Park & Alice Solantania Saga's home

about to draw some nail polish upon my rose print!!! 
exploring various mediums. just having fun. like doodling! this is at my new fave place in dulwich, the french house.

how's tuesday treating you? what are you up to? 

a quote:

dream with the dreamers and invent
things you never knew you had in you.
think with the thinkers and discover
ideas that mold who you are. smile at
strangers and make friends that last
a life time. laugh with friends and
let those memories burn through your
heart. travel with travelers and
explore a life beyond your imagination.
love only one, and grow old with your
best friend. let these things bring
fire to your soul. so when you look
back at your life, you'll have no
regrets. and you can leave this place,
better then when you found it.

- the beauty of r.m drake

smile at strangers and make friends that lasts a life time

i am leaving you with this, i found it from an old post of mine
the wonders of sarah moon

"I change the angle, I feel emptiness, she tries & suggests to do what I want, do nothing I say, she waits, she stares, she sees my panic, I feel like I am letting her down and I press the button one time, 36 times....and tells her she's great. I do not want to be a photographer anymore"


much love

An Sunday Outfit For London's Fashion Week


we are having an ice cold sunday here in london!!! now though = safely having tea at the very warm & cosy french house at home in east dulwich. just came back from somerset house where i viewed some designer collections for fall 2015 & watched the show of ziao li which was a wonderful show full of cute messages on the clothing. will show some picks tomorrow or tuesday. 

time for play!!!

an outfit for a day of fashion

vintage dress
antique cross necklace
wolford violette stockings
burberry flowery printed shoes

we are magic.
we are moments.
we are dreams and
we are memories.
we are everything.
and in the depths
we swim deeper to 
discover that we
are not born whole
so we cannot be
broken. we are born
searching, searching
for the other piece,
that other person
to guide us home.

This Corpse Bride Is Getting Married For The 4th Time This Month


Nars Checks & Mac lipstick
let's steel some more brides and lock them up in the black tower

i love getting married;0)!

yesterday was 10 degrees (plus), so i had time to create in peace it being not ice cold. i have my corpse bride now. it feels GOOD. i was in the moment & i made sure the angle was what i had envisioned before snapping away. i even played more with make up for once. talcum powder perfection with mac's cyber lipstick and nars bewitched on my checks. such fun!

it's a wrap:)))
Nunhead Cemetery
all has its own time and now my dear corpse bride period is over.

"if i touch a burning candle, i can feel no pain. in the ice or in the sun, it's all the same. yet I feel my heart is aching. though it doesn't beat, it's breaking. and the pain here that i feel, try and tell me it's not real. i know that i am dead, yet it seems that i still have some tears to shed."

next is the to create the last part of my tuvstarr tale. i need a beautiful pond in the woods. wish me luck:)? what are you beautiful creatures up to? if anyone ever wanna meet up and maybe create together or just devour inspirations:), then please do send me a cute email (solantania@gmail.com):)!!!

after yesterday's shoot i created this collage at one of my fave dulwich places! 
the french house
i wanted everything brilliant magic cuteness to fit in to one adorable collage. 
Med Kärlek
"med kärlek"

i'll leave you with this

i need to belive that 
only i can chase my 
dreams. that only i can
light the fire in me.
that no one can break me
unless i break myself
and only someone else can
help me carry the pieces.
i need to believe that
i am different and i am
full of love. and if i
live every moment believing,
then the chaos in my 
heart will be a beautiful 
thing and the world will
never cease to forget my

i just have to believe

The Beauty of Decay

i created the image above for my auntie on valentine's day. the auntie i call my second mom. it was her birthday on friday. this day happened to be a very sad day for me so she did not get the attention from me in the way she deserves. next year, the 13th of february is to be hers again.


all day i was looking to find something special to shoot with my camera. but decided that the roses from my tuvstarr & corpse bride shoots would be the special subject that i needed/ was looking for. it's a polaroid image which i scanned and then put in to photoshop. i played here for a while. this little gift/project was my valentine's day:) 

i emailed you this image moster, so i think i know you already love it:)?


magic happened

decay is beauty!

mademoiselle havisham is beauty to me

roses = beauty


desperation is beauty to me!

decay is beauty! 

lasting is beauty

faith hope love 

inspiration now & forever is:

marianne williamson

"our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. it is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. we ask ourselves, 'who am i to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?' actually, who are you not to be? you are a child of god. your playing small does not serve the world. there is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. we are all meant to shine, as children do. we were born to make manifest the glory of god that is within us. it is not just in some of us; it is in everyone. and as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. as we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."

you are a child of god!

be brilliant & shine so that others do the same

live well & stay happy

jag älskar dig moster
