A Sugar & Spice Tuesday To Dream Create Magic

hey:)

just about to have some tea at toast & plan my daily routine that i am to have from february 14th to the 13th of 2016! then it's all art inc.

my corpse bride character will have to happen next week instead because i need my violette roses which i know i am to find at columbia street flower market on sunday. this is a place of wonder, if you have not been here i highly recommend devouring:) every sunday in fact! 

when i was looking through my blog for some images from the times i've been to to this flower market, i found this quote in one of my posts:))) jim jarmusch perfection of it's just a fairy tale!

"devour old films, new films,
music, books, paintings,
photographs, poems, dreams,
random conversations,
architecture, bridges,
street signs, trees, clouds,
bodies of water, light
and shadows. select only
things to steal from that
speak directly to your soul.
if you do this, your work
(and theft) will be authentic.
authenticity is invaluable;
originality is nonexistent."

i am devouring you jim;0)!!!

A Princesse Tuvstarr & The Corpse Bride

Self Portrait by Alice Solantania Saga
she is exhausted. sadness has overtaking her. this struggle was not meant to happen. real life was to be an adventure full of life & stories. instead the world has torn her apart, losing her heart and about to get spell bound. for the rest of her life.

the 9th part of my princesse from the dream castle tale.

the last section of my story is to happen when i find the perfect river!

here is a tiny film i created with the super 8 mm app while being on my way to yesterday's location. talking myself into the character.
sorry for the constant runny nose (i am not crying...)!
i have yet to learn how to edit a film:) hallelujah.

next character is the corpse bride which is to happen next week!

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 does not 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.

Today Is Hope

hey:)

how are you all? i hope you are having a wonderful start of our weekend. i've just come back from the woods having created the next to last part of my tuvstarr tale. i'm having a tea at toasted here in dulwich while blogging. on my way to today's location i created a tiny super 8 film, maybe i'll show you tomorrow. my princesse is now exhausted and am about to loose all hope before getting spellbound, she is loosing her heart. 

today then = hope

reflecting on this today:

sadness gives depth. happiness gives height. sadness gives roots. happiness gives branches. happiness is like a tree going into the sky, and sadness is like the roots going down into the womb of the earth. both are needed, and the higher a tree goes, the deeper it goes, simultaneously. the bigger the tree, the bigger will be its roots. in fact, it is always in proportion. that's its balance.

A World Wide Women Wednesday in London

my wednesday morning was spent here as usual with games of thrones:) i was excited because today i was to preview world wide women's exhibiton "ritual" at grace belgravia!
Cox Walk in Dulwich

i dressed up:)
Marc Jacobs dress
this is one of my absolute fave dresses:) it's by marc jacobs! i wore a little velvet black cardie/ jacket by cacharel to it.

i went to victoria station to have a look at this book binding store full of wonderful papers and such. i thought it was to take a little longer than it did so i ended up at a starbucks in belgravia to kill some time! i decided to plan my 2015 and read a new magazine i found called spleen factory.
Starbucks

then i went to a place i had googled! i love trying new places and i have to say that i loved this one. the star tavern. great wifi & beautiful interior. i had the whole upstairs for my self:))) downstairs was packed with after work cute boys/ men.
British pub in Belgravia, London

The Star Tavern

at 6.30 i went to the exhibition! i adore the artists that forms the collective of world wide women, the founder is the talented anouska beckwitch whom too of course is one of its artists.

the iphone photos below does not make the works justice. if you can, go devour these beautiful fine art photography prints for yourself.

Fine Art Photography by Amanda Charcian & Aëla Labbé

this is a collective of female artists i'd love to join.

ritual

"an homage to that which is lost but not forgotten, a prayer to that which is desired but not realized. ritual promises to answer endless questions and offers escape from an unfulfilled reality. it is an act of veneration for the bird that has flown away, and for the hope of its return."


world wide women's exhibition, ritual, is open until the 24th of february at grace belgravia. 

love
