Seeing the glass half full

Have you ever noticed that you can learn so much about yourself by listening to what YOU are saying to someone else when, say, you cheer them up or you try to help them? I recently had two friends, both equally dear to me, have a mindboggling argument. Without getting into much detail, they're both adorable personas and it seemed simply impossible to work out who was right and who was wrong and whatnot. I figured the safest way to handle this delicate matter was to be as soothing and calming as poss. ''You know, just ignore all the bad things he/she says and take up the good things'' etc. I mean theoretically if both sides apply this to any argument it can't help but resolve, right? Just listening to what I was saying to my friends made me realise that each of us potentially has a lot of common sense and solutions to LOTS of problems. But when faced with a problem this solution-oriented thinking tends to disappear and all we see is this big wall of problems. And I learned that by putting myself in the position of the other I had gained life experience. Some of the things I was coming up with I secretly thought ''Wow, if only _I_ did more of what I say!''. I decided I would. And so I did. And lovely things are happening. Not only do YOU decide how you feel about things, but also the glass will be half-empty or half-full depending on your outlook. HA!

I couldn't believe my eyes at first when I saw my photo with the Vogue logo on it. Let's get more of those, yeah!! :) Check it out: http://www.vogue.it/en/photovogue/Portfolio/00b5e514-0b3d-4cdd-99fb-f9ca81992047/Image

OK, so I have a new favourite boutique in Paris and it seems that the love seems to be more than just platonic ;) The brand is called 'Voriagh' and funnily enough their boutique is right opposite the Opera Bastille where I take my singing lessons. AND the two owners, Vivien and Olivia, are both virtuoso violin players. How much better can it get! It can. Check out this video:

And the article that appeared in AV Magazine:

And here's the website with all the looks from the new collection:


This and that...

Wow, long time no speak. My most recent adventures, after a busy fashion week with Yves Salomon and See by Chloe mainly, include an almost 1 month stay in Cape Town! It's been my second time already this year and I'm definitely planning on coming back. Back in Paris, my vocal training is blossoming, I just had the most amazing two days with my wonderful coach Muriel Corradini and my first Parisian concert will probably be on the 2nd of July. I'm still hesitating about the repertoire but I guess I still have time ;)

As far as recent photos are concerned... I had lots of fun shooting this video:

It's not every day that one gets to be a 'mannequin'! ;)

Concerning catwalk, here's footage from Stephen Caras. Thanks to Neo Tony Lee for the video:
