Weekend activity

As mentioned previously  here and here, I like to create moodboards and keep notebooks so this weekend I have been trying to source some new “stuff”. So where do I look for inspiration? What do I keep?
Comme mentionné auparavant ici et ici, j’aime créer des “moodboards” et j’ai également tout un tas de cahiers sur lesquels je “découpe et colle” tout ce qui m’inspire. Mais quelles sont mes sources d’inspiration?

I choose beautiful pictures from fashion magazines. The ones here below are from the latest Vogue France.
Je sélectionne dans quelques magazines de mode leurs plus belles pages. Celles ci-dessous sont issues du dernier Vogue France.

When buying a new piece of clothes I’d like to ask for a lookbook I can take with me and select some of my favorites pages.                                              
Lorsque je me rends dans une boutique je demande le look book de la collection et je découpe les pages de mes looks préférés.

I like to keep postcards, advertising booklets, flyers, catalogues from my favorite brands. Remember when you go shopping to ask for catalogues because you may find great inspiration. You can see here below the advertising brochure from Diptyque when releasing their Winter collection 2015. It is really beautiful!
Je conserve des cartes postales, publicités, brochures, catalogues de mes marques préférées. N’oubliez pas de demander des catalogues lorsque vous faites votre shopping car une grande source d’inspiration peut s’y cacher! J’adore par exemple la brochure de Diptyque sur la photo ci-dessous lors du lancement de leur collection Hiver 2015.

I keep nice packaging but also perfume samples and envelops where your bill is stored ( like the one from Diptyque or Byredo on the picture). I might use the front side for moodboards.
Je conserve également les emballages, les échantillons de parfums ou encore les petites enveloppes contenant votre ticket de caisse ( comme celles de Diptyque ou Byredo ci-dessous). Je découpe parfois le dessus et je les accroche comme de petites affiches pour mes moodbards.

For the love of palms…

I have “a thing” for palm trees! When I visit an exotic place I take a lot of pictures of them! I love the sound and movements of palm leaves when it is windy. I love the way they look at sunset…. well in other words I just find them beautiful!

Weekend activity

I am really enjoying this very long weekend ( since Thursday!!!!) as I have been able to do a lot of my favorite activites! I actually had the time to clean, to “rearrange” furniture at home, to train, to go for evening walks, to read. Yesterday I spent some time sorting out my photos. I am aware that I am not a professional photographer but I love to take pictures. I like to capture moments, beautiful things or places. I will after a while nostalgically look at my photos and remember great experiences with friends, family…. I had some of my favorite pictures printed out but I never got the time to hang them. It will be such a pity to keep them in a drawer!

  1. So I sorted out the pictures by theme, colours, places
