the struggle is real

the struggle is real

It’s already November and honestly, I can’t wait for 2018 to be over. I know, I seem like a broken record, always talking about the same thing, but I can’t avoid it, and I hope my rants can help to any other creative soul fighting the same battle. In this age of fast internet and even faster trends in every aspect of life, in an age of Instagram, when everywhere around you can see other people living f̶a̶k̶i̶n̶g̶ their best life, other artists being creative in ways you would want to, but you are just not getting there,  it is so easy to demotivate yourself and beat yourself down.

This whole year I felt overwhelmed like I never felt before, with everyday life, work, etc. My creativity, something that was always a big part of my identity,  seemed to be fleeting. I never had that feeling before and I must admit it scared a shit out of me. And somewhere along the way, I let go and stopped trying to find enough time for my soul to grow. It was so easy to do it, I didn’t even realize and it was already two months since I snapped any photos with my camera. You see, our new apartment has the most beautiful light early in the morning and the whole summer I wanted to do a photo shoot with it, but never got around to actually do it. I had a few ideas on my mind, but I would always find an excuse not to do it. I wasn’t lazy, I just was burned out.

Until yesterday actually. And let me tell you, getting up before 7 even if I didn’t feel like doing it and taking these product photos for my jewelry brand, playing around with the camera and later editing them, was the most fun I had in a while. The rush I get of creating, seeing my idea becoming reality, adrenaline, and serotonin pumping through my blood, almost feel like the long-forgotten magic of the first kiss. Because art, in every form, it is my first love. I think I might end up framing some of these so I don’t ever forget it again.

 

summer dresses

summer dresses

Hi guys! I’m not really sure how to start an outfit post, should I just share photos with no writing at all? I have a strong urge to write something self-conscious and ironic but I will try not to.

Anyway, summer dresses are my favorite piece of clothing, and I wear them all year round, with boots or sneakers, and sweaters when it’s cold or with strappy sandals in this tropical heat.  For me, every summer has THE dress, the one I wear when I need an extra boost of confidence and this green one from Springfield is my favorite this season. Trust me you do need it, its gorgeous and a great fit for every body type, plus is on sale now so it’s kinda saying you need to have me. And of course, you can see some fresh LancheJewelry bracelets, go check them out!

I also played with self-portraits and my analog camera objective on my digital camera (this time it was successful or better to say I really like the result), so let me know what do you think about these photos. Until next post, keep chasing sunsets.

i guess this is an outfit post

i guess this is an outfit post

So, to be honest, I never ever thought I will do an outfit post, or feel comfortable in front of the camera, for that mater. But somehow, over the time, I learned to love it. (I blame Instagram for it, tho. Before, I used to be all about taking photos of random cats and buildings I thought looked cute. It’s strange how I never thought of studding architecture.)

But, let’s stick to the point. As you may know, (and let’s be honest, all of you reading this probably does), together with my sister Milica, I own a jewelry label named JewelryLanche and our modern bohemian agate bracelets are something we are known for. They are mostly one of a kind pieces, and I wanted to show how you can style these bracelets with almost anything and at any time of the year.

 

 

Preferably, you will be wearing these at Coachella, but if you can’t make it this year, (me neither, I know, what a bummer) here is an idea how you can wear them.

 

 

So as I said, I never thought I will be an outfit post kind of  blogger, but I love these photos too much not to share them. I guess that’s the thing with self promotion, you will feel bad about it at first, and then you get use to it, and than you are unstoppable.
