It is the last day of 2016 and I would like to thank you all for your support and love throughout this year. It has been an incredible year and I have seen my blog and following grow beyond my own expectation. This is something I am not only surprised about, but also something I am incredibly grateful for. I have also learned so much in regards to photography this year and have started to enjoy and appreciate the subject more and more. Besides that, I have had the pleasure of meeting some of the most amazing people this year and feel so blessed to be able to call them my friends. Thank you for making my year a lot brighter and fun!

Thank you all for everything, I wish you a super, awesome, splendid, amazing 2017!

Give yourself time to heal

Happy new week! It is the last full week of 2016, how bizarre is that? The year has once again truly flown by and it felt like an overall whirlwind. Though I don’t want to spill too many words regarding 2016 (I’ll save that for a later post), it is undeniable that it is becoming more and more tempting by the day to do so. The realization that it is almost 2017 is something indescribable and provokes so many emotions within me, most of which are incredibly contradicting and it simply won’t leave my mind.

There was one lesson I learned this year that I deemed important enough to write a seperate blog post about; give yourself time to heal. It is not the most quoteable life lesson, nor is it the most memorable but exactly that makes it so important. It is such a forgettable lesson, one that I have admittedly forgotten quite often as well but it is so incredibly important and I can’t stress that enough. My year has been full of rough patches (image), after which I never gave myself the time to relax and simply heal. I admittedly did have long periods of unproductivity but the stress always remained. In the end, I had never actually given myself a chance to rest and rejuvinate at all.

It is okay to feel sad, all of us do sometimes; especially during this cold and blue season. It is important to let yourself be sad for a bit and not beat yourself up about it. But after that, you should not forget to give yourself time to pull it back together before delving back into your everyday routine. What I am trying to say is that recovery takes time and that there is absolutely nothing wrong about it.

“I will be your home
Keep you warm when it’s cold
I will try to be what you need when you’re low
I can only promise the girl that I am
I’ll do anything that I can
Meet me on the road to recovery”
– Broods, Recovery

Martian chronicles

I was recently browsing goodreads again in the hopes of finding a new literary masterpiece to add to my dreadfully long to read-list when I stumbled upon quotes of The Martian Chronicles by Ray Bradburry. The story resembles a possible future of mankind. To summarize, it ‘chronicles the colonization of Mars by humans fleeing from a troubled and eventually atomically devastated Earth, and the conflict between aboriginal Martians and the new colonists.’ (quoted from Wikipedia). I find it quite comical that the book was written and published around the late 1940s to early 1950s. Mind you that is more than half a century ago and we, as self-proclaimed innovative and intelligent human beings, have merely touched the surface of the extraterrestrial. Books like these still amuse us and serve with the purpose of entertainment, though it is undeniable that we are getting closer to turning it into reality every single day.

By any means, the book has most definitely earned its spot on my to-read list as it has also inspired me for this very blog post.

To further embrace the extraterristrial vibes, I have decided to showcase a few of my finds at this years Geeks ‘n Nerds event. Starting with this radio by … and quirky lamp from HEXtraordinary, both truly being out of this world! (Badum tss…).

Adorability is a must for a martian girl like me, therefore I have added this galactical dress by NOMI, currently available at The Kawaii Project and some geeky-cute props by Les Sucreries de Fairy, which you can once again find at GNN. To finish the look, I am wearing a simply otherworldly hairstyle by the wonderful Mello.

“Science is no more than an investigation of a miracle we can never explain, and art is an interpretation of that miracle.”
– Ray Bradburry, The Martian Chronicles
