Big Talk + Updates

Blabbers, Updates October 21, 2017

I say another hello to you all on this windy Saturday afternoon. It’s two hours before I have to leave for work and Brian, The Storm has approached Dorset with random bursts of rain mixed with heavy winds. Though at the moment I see the sun in the distance and it brings some hope to me, just like this post brings hope to my blog.

Yes, I am here, writing again.

No, I won’t make this into yet another I’m back but how long will it last kind of posts.

Let’s just talk about how’s life been because I have catching up to do!

Redesign

You’ve probably noticed that the look of my blog changed, in a good way! I was not feeling the previous design at all, it kept getting worse as time passed by so I’ve decided to spend some of it on figuring it out. Though I’m still working on the final design sheet which combines all features and attributes, I’m ecstatic with how the blog turned out! It’s so much more me now and I love coming back here on a daily basis (and that’s a good start).

I must say a huge thank you to my friend Maria who kindly accepted my call for help and drew an adorable moon which is featured in all headers and logos ♥ Can’t be happier with how it turned out and am embracing the embarrassment of looking at my own attempts to do it. I’m blessed to have such friends who, in the midst of commissions and assignments, still find time to help out.

Life Lately

So, how’s your life been? Tell me while I try to recall anything important that I’ve done while on my hiatus. Really, type it in the comments! You probably have many interesting things to tell because I have been just working, thinking, moving to a new house, working, sleeping less, thinking more and to top all of that, I’m back to University again.

To make sense of it, the second year of uni finished, together with my mid-uni life crisis (which I will write a post about soon!) During the summer I worked a double-part-time-job just to save money before I move house. That money I invested into my new flat because, to put it nicely, it was kind of falling apart. Meaning, it took me around two months to fix my own room and furnish it properly but I have never been happier with how it turned out! I also met new people and spent most of my nights cruising through town and talking at the beach. The perks of living by the seaside!

What now?

During this whole time, I have done zero art, zero blog posts, zero stories and a minimal amount of photographs and poems. During this whole time, I thought about all those zero’s every single day. The lack of art in my daily life was reaching my limits and last summer me would have been panicking while drowning down the depths of anxiety, but one thing changed – and that’s my attitude. I can talk about it more in a future post but right now I’m content with myself. I plan to slowly go back to doing art and not just do it but also improve. Feeling excited about this one!

The future

Is bright. I will just do my own thing and you’re welcomed to keep an eye on it! My only promises are coming back to blogging, planning and doing art. The rest will come naturally, I hope.

So, how’s that comment going? Update me about your life :)

By the way, here is a list of places you should visit to see what I’m up to:

Art Instagram

Personal Instagram

Facebook Page

Twitter

See you in the next post!

xoxo, v.

p. s. I finally realised why I redesign all my websites so much – it’s not because I can’t get it to be good enough, it’s because… coding them makes me relaxed 😁

Weirdo.

the most liberating thing

Blabbers September 9, 2017

for me today was

waking up early after weeks of oversleeping; getting out of the house after winning a debate with myself and feeling comfortable with it.

It was the fact that I was out there, going to new places, fucking up and figuring it out, feeling little to no shame about it. It was the fact that I was taking care of myself, showing me off in such ways like wearing no makeup and having no expectations.
And it was mainly the fact that I could look at the reflection of every car window and,
for once, think that

‘hey, i’m actually quite alright’cyclingp.s. i’ll be back soon

One Morning In Photos

In Photos, Photography, Series, Visuals April 7, 2017

I love mornings. I love leaving the blinds open at night so I could wake up to the morning sun.

I love when there actually is sun in the morning. It brings hope, wiping everything from yesterday off and literally bringing light to a new day. The sun brings a promise that maybe this day will be different, maybe things will slowly move forward, maybe you will get the chance to do better.

What the sun doesn’t bring is a plan for the maybe’s. Ten minutes in and it’s up to you to get up and face everything.

This year I have been lucky to have my bedroom window facing the east and this spring season starting incredibly sunnily. I get to experience such warmth and beauty, even the bedsheets become less welcoming in the presence of the morning sun. What a queen.

Most mornings are successful. This set of photos is from one of such.

#WorldPoetryDay: Ghosting (+updates)

Poetry, Updates, Word Art March 21, 2017

Happy national poetry day! I shall mark my calendar because I was not aware of this occasion up until some tweet notifications came through.

Today I want to quickly share a poem to celebrate this day. It is very recent, actually, from last night. I rarely get bursts of inspiration these days but yesterday ended with a bundle of overwhelming feelings I haven’t experienced in quite a while, and at 12 am this artpiece was born!

On Poetry

Blabbers, Poetry, Word Art December 3, 2016

Take a few steps in

The water becomes colder

Numbing the feelings

Diving in deeper

Just as I become older

My journey begins

When it comes to poetry, my journey begins way earlier than you’d expect. However, at the time I was less aware of the word ‘poetry’ and more into ‘these lines sound pretty when they rhyme.’
