Spotted Dogs

DALMATIANS.

Now, don’t call me creep. I’m no Cruella Devil. But for the good old dog lover that I am, this breed is just adorable.

They are such elegant creatures with a strong body and beautiful posture – so often used for fashion photography! – and yet they are all covered in spots which just adds this extra touch of fun that HAS to put a smile on your face.

In other words I love how classy these dogs look but yet not being taken too seriously. It is exactly the spirit of the blog and it is exactly what I enjoy the most about life and people in general.

So here goes a short mood board where I tried to select pictures all over the internet that illustrated my point.

I hope you enjoy 🙂

Hello

As you can see, I haven’t been the best at blogging over the last few months, I could find a thousand excuses for this but really, I believe that this is due to the content I was publishing until now and that does not correspond to me anymore.

So I want to redirect the content of the blog towards something than is more me, that can help me grow and hopefully help you as well in some ways.

From now on, the blog will focus towards three main themes: Fashion, Lifestyle and Career.

I am passionate about fashion, exploring new trends and expressing myself with what I wear so I will keep sharing my favorite pieces, trends and brands.

I feel like lifestyle is really a buzz word nowadays (but I love it so much!). My personal lifestyle – which I intend to share here – is a beautiful, gentle, sophisticated yet down to earth, and also very fun way of living. I will focus on the material and unmaterial aspects (from what to put in your living room to what you put in your brain).

Finally, the career theme will explore subjects related to a bunch of different careers such as entrepreneurship, marketing, design among others. Hopefully, interviews between amazing professionals and I will inspire you!

We will see how this works out. Let me know your opinion on this, every contribution and collaboration is welcome!

Cheers,

HD Pinterest: The Red List

001-willy-ronis-theredlist* By Willy Ronis (found on theredlist.com)

Hi!

Ok, that title was meant to be catchy. Let me introduce The Red List to you.

This is their way of introducing themselves:

The Red List organizes and concentrates the wealth of images to be found online. After all, what is a list if not a tool to manage infinity? So to manage the Internet’s visual infinity, the Red List is organized by genres – photography, cinema, fine art, fashion, and so on – with lists inside each genre to guide image researchers.

Theredlist.com

I got introduced to it thanks to Stylist Magazine France, presenting its founder Delphine de Canecaude, who enables you to create your own trend book and share it on facebook. Now THAT spoke to me immediately.
If you are interested in seeing the different steps of her career so far, I highly you recommend checking out the article here (french version).

So you understood it, this website consists in creating a huge artisitic database. Over there you will be able to find beautiful content: photography, videos, furniture design among many others.

And what I like about it is that not only, the different sources have been carefully selected but you DO know the different sources. As I guess many of you are, I am quite the Pinterest fan, but I think that it’s pity how many sources of information you lose through pinning and quoting. On the Red List that does not happen. You will be able to get to know the artists and their work in a fullier way.

THE RED LIST IS SELECTIVE.
It offers a selection of articles, which don’t pretend to be encyclopaedic, written by passionate experts [click] – architects, designers, specialist journalists and academics – who have long travelled the world of images and who aren’t afraid to make choices. The Red List will not be pressured into featuring any artists.

Hope you enjoyed! Let me know your thoughts on this.

Discovery: John Woodbridge – Paris

Hello,

Today I wanted to share a small shop in Paris that I discovered last month. My cousin spotted it right away and as soon as I got in I was completely in love with the store.

It’s called John Woodbridge and sells amazing vintage looking travel and sport items.

This company which is quite recent (2013) aims to spread the love of vintage objects that are full of history.

Over there, you’ll find amazing leather pieces for travelling or old looking baseball balls among any others.

Here are some pics from their website.

The whole atmosphere of the store is gorgeous, it has this kind of man cave vibes to it that I find super charming.

If you are ever in the lovely area of St Paul in Paris, I highly recommend you check it out.

PS: And if you are really into vintage sports like this, check out their tumblr page which will be an absolute delight for you! Well done!

Cheers,
