Videography: Jake Terrey

Hi,

Today I wanted to share with you the work of Jake Terrey, an amazing photographer that has work with many artists and brands such as Vogue Australia.

I first discovered his job with this amazing Miranda Kerr videography (or motion photography as he calls it in his website).

Videography:  the art of taking pictures with a videocamera.

I think it is an incredible form of art. In fact it captures a certain emotion that does not come through pictures but that does comes along with the effort of posing for a picture. Very interesting and beautiful.

Plus his work is very delicate and trendy which I absolutely love.

Cheers to him.

Cheers to you,

Week Wrap Up

Hello everyone,

I thought I would share some more personal things on the blog and sharing with you the highlight of my week. I would love for you to share them as well in the comments this way we can all learn from eachother and discover new things all around the world.

As I’m appartment hunting in Paris, I have plenty of time to wander around the city and explore coffeshops, stores, exhibs, among many others.

1) A very exciting discovery was Artazart. If you are not familiar, Artazart is an amazing design bookstore. They have a huge selection of any type of design book you would be looking for, some are more graphic, some more intellectual. Some are amazing coffee table books, others are great tools to start creating (wether it is a company, a interior space, an art collection, a diy, you name it!)

And if these lines weren’t covincing enough I would suggest you to check out the tripadvisor reviews this store has. And trust me, these reviews are well deserved.

Here are some book that I stumbled upon and loved (some are only in French sorry):

And THIS, how cool is it? First notebook made out of stone. What?!! ❤

2) Exhib : L’Amérique des Kennedy – “Kennedy’s America”

This was a lovely exhib, the gallery is absolutely gorgeous and I got to learn many new things especially about Robert Kennedy and the whole family.

3) White Nail Polish + White Loafers

Many many many of you may know this by now. I got some Stan Smith sneakers for my birthday back in October and I have been absolutely loving them. They are super comfortable, go with everything and they always give a casual touch yet sophisticated thanks to the Midas touch (got it? Gold 😉 – so P&F). Follow me around and see more snaps of my own Stan Smith here!

Interview w/ Fabulous JazziRose

FIRSTSECOND* By JazziRose

Dear readers,

For this new year I have many new post ideas that will feature some fellow, bloggers, instagrammers and other talented souls.

Today, I wanted to introduce you to the very artistic Jasmin Rosenberg that I discovered on Instagram – JAZZIROSE.

Please go check out her blog – I think she has one of the best feeds ever. If you are into the very minimal and white theme, you will love her account & as everyone knows already I am all about that.

Without further do, let me share you my favorite posts from her (I’ll try my best not to put them all here) and scroll down for the complete interview.

——

Tell us a bit about yourself:

– My name is Jasmin and I’m 20 years old. I was born and raised in the southern part of Denmark in a city called Svendborg, where I currently still live with my parents and little brother.

Something you love about the city you live in:

– What I love most about my hometown is probably that it is located very close to the coast. From my home there is about 5-10 minutes to the nearest harbor and beach. It kinda gives me sense of freedom rather than being “stranded” in the center of the country. Also, I think that the size of the city is spot on. Not too big and overwhelming as some big capitals might seem, nor so small that you’ll get bored here.

Currently studying/working? Something you love about it:

– I graduated summer 2013 from what you internationally would call “High School”

I had no idea what I wanted to study next, so I took a year break from everything and basically spend all my time with family and friends.

This summer I, very spontaneously, started at university on a rather new education called “Intercultural pedagogy”.

But it just wasn’t the right choice for me. I felt sad whenever I went to school, didn’t feel like I belonged there and the subjects didn’t really interest me either. So I dropped out of uni in December, which was actually quite hard for me, because I somewhat felt like I gave up.

But now, I have applied to a new school and a new education, “Marketing management” which starts in February.

I have a much better feeling about this, but I won’t know until later on in January whether my application has been accepted or not. (crossing fingers)

What are your hobbies?

– One of my biggest hobbies has to be photography. I take pictures with my iPhone 4s or my Nikon d3200.

I absolutely love the whole “set up” of a picture and I have fun editing the images afterwards.

I love to share my photos on Instagram where I feel that I get a lot of feedback aswell as inspiration back from the people I follow.

I also enjoy more ordinary things, like cooking and workouts at the gym 🙂

How would you discribe your personal fashion style? Do you find inspiration in some celebreties? 

In 4 words: minimalistic, simple, casual and most importantly, comfortable.

I live in oversized, chunky jumpers, cardigans and black leggings. My wardrobe consists mostly of black, white, grey and nude items, because that’s just what I feel most comfortable in. I often add red lipstick to an outfit, so I don’t look completely washed out.

I used to always wear whatever everyone else wore, but now I focus on just feeling comfortable in what I’m wearing.

I respect people with personal style, who can manage to stand out in the crowd (without having to wear bright yellow clothes ofc.)

I love to browse through Pinterest to find inspiration and I’m a huge fan of Mary-kate and Ashley Olsen’s style. They are always on point!

You instagram feed is absolutely gorgeous – where do you find your inspiration? 

– Thank you so much! I follow a lot of similar accounts on Instagram and get inspired by them everyday.

Also, I’m scrolling though the Pinterest app daily, which to me is a huge inspirational source that I think everyone should join!

I can also easily find inspiration on TV, commercials, in a magazine or just at the mall. Everywhere basically! 

Tips and Tricks for an awesome looking Instagram: 

– The best advice I can give is to try and find a “theme” for your feed. It could be food, fashion, fitness, your lifestyle, interior design, the way you edit your pictures, a certain color, whatever you like. Try to find a common thread that kinda connects all your pictures and in that way gives your feed a certain style. I also recommend that you take pictures in natural daylight and that you don’t add too many filters and effects.

Just adjusting the brightness and contrast of the image can do so much! (that’s at least what I prefer to do)

Something amazing that has happened thanks to your account?

– I’ve had the pleasure to receive a few products from different brands, which to me is so amazing and I’m so thankful for that!

I’ve also done a giveaway not too long ago with an amazing brand called Hoff by Hoff.

This year, I’m collaborating with a new women’s wear fashion label called Míela, and I will also be blogging for them. 

What are you most looking forward this year? 

– Hopefully, I’m looking forward to starting on my new education and I’m excited to see how that goes.

Other than that, I don’t have anything in particular that I’m looking forward to. But who knows, your never know what the future might bring.

To conclude, share with us a couple of your current favorite pictures/quotes/etc: 

Quotes: “Close some doors. Not because of pride, incapacity, or arrogance, but simply because they no longer lead somewhere.”
“Ask yourself if what your are doing today, is getting you closer to where you want to be tomorrow.
 
Here are some fashion and interior pictures that I find very inspirational. 
They are all from Pinterest, so if you like this “simple, minimalistic, less is more” kinda style you should follow me there! (www.pinterest.com/iamjazzirose)

Total Black Look

Mr. Total Black Look.

Indeed.

I’ve flown out from Paris to Porto for these holidays and could not pack many things in my luggage. Plus, as I am a complete disaster when it comes to packing (although reading tons of tips about that) now it appears that I am struggling a lot for putting together some cute outfits. Sigh.

And oh well, when nothing else works, go for a total black look.

Inspo found on Pinterest. Hope you enjoy!

5fb42138b5905d202e3d9a2cfa0fa766What I particularly love about this outfit is the whole texture game. I love the chunky and oversized cardigan. Brings so much to the outfit.

Well here – do I need to a say a thing? YES. DA HAT. Love it.

This one, well. It could be me on a sassy-ish day 😉 Love the chunky scarf, the suit and the shoes – need to get my hands on  good pair like this ASAP.

Hope you enjoyed!

Lacoste Live Faves <3

Hello everyone,

I hope you are all having a wonderful day. As some of you may know I absolutely love Lacoste brand. They had me way before their ad featuring Disclosure (oh that ad.. let’s go back for a sec here) that let’s be honest was pretty much DA BOMB. The staging and the idea are absolutely wonderful and the message is deep and beautiful.

Anyway, today is not for me to go back on that ad but to share how much I loved Lacoste Live FW14 collection. What I loved about it in a few words? It has the right amount of prep and sport chic. I mean come on, what could I want more than this?

All pics are wether from the website or from the shooting of the lookbook. I think they’re absolutely stunning and highly recommend you to pop onto Lacoste website because they really have amazing items and wonderful gift ideas for the Holidays.

I also loved their Pinterest Christmas Board that looks delightful. I shared it on my facebook page. Make sure you follow me over there to be the first informed about everything I’m loving at the moment.

L’Art du Basic – PARIS

presentation

FR

Priorité au français car aujourd’hui on parle NATIONAL, les enfants.
Si vous me suivez sur Instagram, vous avez déjà dû apercevoir ma petite vidéo de balade jazzy dans Paris. Ce weekend dans un élan de spontanéité j’ai pris mon petit sac et mon appareil photo et j’ai fais un petit tour de quartier à la découverte de nouveaux magasins, concepts, cafés, décorations et j’en passe.

Surprise du jour bonjour, je tombe sur l’Art du Basic, que je ne connaissais pas et LA – sous le charme. Total.

Je pense qu’il est inutile de revenir sur ma folie du minimalisme, le voyage à Copenhague qui a changé ma vie…On le sait tous maintenant. En tout cas, j’ai bien évidemment flashé sur ce magasin pour son look très clean, ses coupes nettes sans être trop classiques, des excellents tissus, et ce je ne sais pas quoi qui rend toute la collection mystérieuse avec une touche tomboy (tout moi donc 😉 ). Vraiment vraiment sympa! Bravo pour cette collection!

EN

French brand featured on the blog today.
If you follow me on instagram, you may have seen a short video that I filmed while wandering around Paris last Sunday. I had an amazing – very spontaneous day, where I grabbed my bag and camera and started walking around and taking some snaps here and there, discovering new stores, concepts, coffee shops, decoration and so on.

One of my biggest surprise was stubling upon l’Art du Basic, that I did not know before and OH MAN – that was a lovely discovery.

I really think it’s useless to go back to my love for a good minimal look or to how much my trip to Copenhagen changed my life (well, almost!). In any case I absolutely loved that brand. It has wonderful clean cuts without beeing too classic, fine fabric, and that little something that adds some mystery to the collection with a hint of tomboy vibe (100% me 😉 ). Very very nice concept. Congratulations!

Hoje decidi falar-vos de uma marca francesa.
Se já me seguem no instagram, devem ter visto o pequeno vídeo que publiquei este Domingo em que estava a passear pelas ruas de Paris. Passei um dia muito giro e espontâneo, foi só pegar na carteira e na maquina e tirar fotos a todas as coisinhas giras que via como novas lojas, conceitos, cafés, decorações natalícias entre outros.

Uma das coisas que se destacou nessa tarde foi a descoberta da loja L’art du Basic que não conhecia de maneira alguma.

Penso que não é preciso voltarmos a falar da minha Paixão pelo estio minimalista e a que ponto a minha viajem a Copenhaga mudou a minha vida (ou quase!). Em todo o caso, adorei esta marca. Tem uns cortes que são de outro mundo, super simples sem serem demasiado clássicos, tecido espectacular, e um toque de algo especial que torna a colecção toda bastante misteriosa e um pouco tomboy (ou seja, 100% eu, certo? 😉 ). Um excelente trabalho. Parabéns!

 My personal faves:

I’m a huge lover of these deep V necks. So glamourous.  The off white dress has kind of the same vibe going, but in a more sutle way, easier for the daily basis and to brighten up the rainy days #whiteinwinter

robes

Regarding these last two, what can I say beside that I love how tomboyish these styles look. However the cuts keep the feminine aspect very present which make everything very lovely.

tomboy swag

 

I never use the word swag. But look at that last pause. That is minimal/tomboy swag! Love it.
