What's with the blog ?

Hi everyone,

It's been somewhat quiet on my blog and I thought I should talk about the reasons behind this.

Of course there's this thing called "real life", but that's not really all that is to it. Yes, I do have a new job that eats pretty much all of my time, either in the office or community to or from it. But the truth is, that I'm also not entirely sure if I should keep the blog up and running at all. I would love to focus more on my YouTube channel and let's be real, producing videos is a lot of work.

Then there's also the fact that I am not entirely happy with the platform I am on, which is Blogger. Maybe I haven't digged deep enough but I find it somewhat limiting The next logical step would be to move on to WordPress, but I'm kind of....not thrilled to build an entire new website again. Then agaaaain, the current layout needs updating. While I love the colors and all I suspect that the pink is quite "in da face" and not very user friendly.

So I am thinking... that I will continue to look into finding a new host and experimenting with WordPress designs in the background to see if I like it enough to make the switch or not.

I would really love to keep doing the whole "brand introduction" thing I had going on before abandoning my blog as it is so much fun.

For now though I leave you with a video about what I did on my birthday, because I love love love sheep and there ain't enough online yet !

Brand introduction: Brighton - all things bags! (And jewelry, and home decor, but that's a story for another day)

You guys know that I love globetrotting. I try to travel as much as possible and since I also love fashion, I always hope to come across new brands I haven't heard of before. Now with today's brand I must admit it was a rather funny situation.

You all probably know that I live in London, which is close to Brighton, a popular British seaside town. So when I passed by the store in California I thought it was a British brand that had expanded to the US. But this couldn't be further from the truth.

It is, in fact, a family owned US based brand - LA based, to be exact. So the curious little thing that I am I opened the door and stepped inside. And I was thoroughly impressed ! The company offers a wide variety of bags, jewelry, belts and shades, home decor and even footwear ! Everything is created by their own designers who make sure the products are well taken care of from sketch to sale. And those designers are real creative minds, judging by what they had on display in store.

I could throw hundreds of pictures with gorgeous designs at you, but I thought for today I should simply focus on every girl's favorite accessory: bags!

I love that lots of their designs are very classic and elegant. You feel as if you are carrying a high-end designer product - but for a much smaller price tag. I don't know about you but for me that's win-win!

But they also have quirky designs like those last two bags I posted pictures of. They do show lots attention to detail but the designs are fun and get you in the mood for a wonderful beach vacation.

If I could pick any of the bags above though, I would probably pick either the first or second one. I just love how high end yet girly they look!

If you excuse me now, I need to keep binge-windowshop their site!

What I've been up to [Check out my YouTube Trailer]

Hello everyone,

it's been a while that I wrote a blog post but trust me, I wasn't lazy. I've been doing a lot of filming lately and all that stuff needs to be edited and such. Then there's the fact that it's fall. Fall = perfect time to catch a cold or two, so I've been doing that as well. Fun and excitement =D.

I will be blogging more again soon and maybe do another revamp of my blog layout as well. While I love the current layout I fear the pink might not be to everyone's liking.

I am getting more and more into filming and like I said, that's what I've been doing a lot lately. I was lucky enough to get to work with two very talented artists which resulted in fantastic footage and great songs for the edited videos. For filming I got to travel to the beautiful south of France to work with DRM Production and for the music I worked with @NicolasNottin who is a very talented musician.

Some of the footage plus the song of the following video is the result of this collaboration and I'm very happy with it.

Sit back and enjoy :)

Until next time,
