Inspiration ++

28 Nov

[QUADRON – Buster Keaton]

I don’t post videos often in here, but this one is really worth it.

From Denmark.
Truly inspirational.
Not far from the world i (wish i) live(d) in.


19 Nov

This week in makeup, part III.

The Face Painting class round #2, even more difficult, but truly enjoyable (and stressful, but i suppose that is a good sign!).
So that’s it for this weeks classes, fun has really started! ..


19 Nov

This week in makeup, part II.

So this week we started the face painting classes, which were lot more harder that it seems, i think it might even have been the hardest so far. But i loved it: doing it and being a clown too.. too bad i had to wash it out so soon.. although the washing out part is never all that easy either: came out of school with a green ear and went to a pole emploi meeting in the afternoon with some blue in my hair and sparkles too – which of course i realized only once i came back home, after the meeting. oh well!!

** Red Mouth

19 Nov

This week in makeup, part I.
[ Red Mouth and sophisticated eyes, more visible bellow – never thought it would take that much effort and preciseness to  realise this look. But well.. it did!!! ]

>> And thanks to Eloise for being my model on this one, she was so tired she was actually falling asleep while i was doing her makeup, which was great in fact cause she would stay perfectly still!!

Water Maters

13 Nov

A goooorgeous, cleverly designed bottle, not only because it neatly fits in a pocket or because it is designed by s+arck (which we agree is a BIG plus), but because it is a bottle with a message, one can subtly spread in style, drinking one’s watery way to health and a better world.

“Water Carriers” is an a campaign by the FRANCE LIBERTE / DANIELLE MITTERRAND FONDATION, that was launched in June 2010 to raise awareness on the issue of water as a human right.

The Water Carrier campaign invites people to get hold of a “Water Leaf” (a slim PET bottle designed by s+arck for the occasion) for 5 euros, and answer/sign the online Call by FRANCE LIBERTE: “Let’s all become Water Carrier!”.

By doing so, collectivities, and/or people like you and me, stand up against the acceptance that human being could die merely because they do not have  access to drinking water. By becoming a Water Carrier, one makes a choice to raise a voice, as a community, for a new organization and distribution of water resources worldwide.

TO BECOME A (cool) WATER CARRIER (like me): all you need to do is sign up the France Liberte Fondation’s call here and get your own bottle there. Then wait 3 days and you’ll have it in your mail box, and you can enjoy this new experience, where you can SPEAK UP your conscience AND DRINK at the same time. Now how cool is that??

Plus BOBO tu meurs??” Et allors??! Moi j’aime, je like, je surkiffe! ha ha.
Now save those 5 euros you would spend on a cigarette pack and fill + drink water in style forever. Come on!

** The Water Carrier MAnifesto **

1) Water is not a Product meant to enrich the overcrowed market of the food industry, it is a common resource, destined to be freely available and consumed, not only by Mankind, but by all living organisms.

2) In order to preserve the water resource for future generations, it is our duty to return water to nature in its original state of purity.

3) Access to (pure) water is a fundamental Human Right, that can only be safeguarded by a public, democratic and transparent management of the water resource, dictated and inforced by law.
