CARTIER WINTERTALE

KTR_8296

 

Love… Isn’t it what we live for? Isn’t it the strongest, most powerful emotion in this world? Isn’t it the very trigger of our lives and the unique thing that outlives everything and that one could never buy with all the money in this world? One of my favorite quotes has always been “The Greatest thing you’ll ever learn, is just to love, and be loved in return” that I heard for the first time in the movie Moulin Rouge and marked it forever in my notebook…

You never know where life will take you. The pace of today’s society is so quick, so unstable, yet the love we have and share with our families and friends is what tops everything. It keeps us grounded. It’s like a rock : no matter what happens on our path, the love that we are being given is the most precious thing we have on this earth. But it is not only about receiving external love, it’s also love we give to ourselves. It’s about accepting ourselves, respecting our dreams, listening to our heart, following our instincts without any regret in order to live a life that’s worth every second.

My vision of love is based on what my parents taught me : it is something you give without waiting anything in return. I am lucky to say that I grew up surrounded by so much love from my mother, my father and grandmothers… Knowing that they care about me, and that they would always take me in no matter where I go is probably the reason why I took so many risks and became so ambitious, The values they taught me is what keeps me going and what makes sense in my life. What they gave, will always and forever remain in my heart. Their love, and the one I give to them, is stronger than anything I will ever own and I am so thankful to have such a beautiful family to live for and to honor. In the hardest, most humble moments of our lives, having each other was what helped us get through everything.

The love I share with my friends, is just as deep and fusional. They give me so much strength, so much courage to fight for my dreams and believe in myself. When I met James, I knew that we were hopping on a ride for life. Our personalities just clicked right away and I have never met someone that understood me so well. Our minds were working together on perfect synchronization and to this day, I know that the connection I have with him is one of the most beautiful things that happened to me… And I know, no matter what, it will last forever. And even though our romantic relationship ended last October, the love we have for one another has grown even bigger : as friends, as business partners and as founders of this incredible adventure we are on.

The love I share with you guys, even though is virtual, is probably one of my biggest accomplishments I have. To be totally honest, it really doesn’t feel virtual to me. It’s beyond real. In my heart, I know you all. I know your dreams, your fears, your ambitions… I know that you know me as well, and knowing that you care enough to give me some of your precious time is one of the craziest things ever. How can I be grateful enough? I can only hope to give you as much love I can in return, to grab your hand and take you on this ship to inspire you, to give you drive and ambition so that you have the strength to believe in yourself and acknowledge your passions. When in doubt, I think of all of you… You give me more hope, motivation and passion that you can imagine. Without you, I would never be here. I want to take this opportunity to thank you all for that.

Before the snow falls on our rooftops, turning the cities white, let’s all take a moment to celebrate love. I have the absolute honor to open a new chapter in our collaboration with Cartier and to share with you this second part of our Winter tale campaign. I chose to create a story around the bracelet Love because for me, love is a universal language and the most beautiful thing, us humans can express. With winter holidays so close, it’s a time that we take to be with our beloved ones, to step back, slow down and breath. Feel thankful for everything we accomplished this year. I feel so blessed to wear this bracelet on my wrist. It reminds me of one thing : through thunder and storm, love remains. Always.

So spread the love. 

We have a magical third part of this Cartier project waiting for you guys… as soon as snow hits the roofs!

Wonderful pictures. Wonderful words! You really have the ability to touch hearts with words and images. Thanks!!

Wow…ce sont les seuls mots que j’ai pour cet article qui m’a réellement mis les larmes aux yeux. La façon dont tu décris tout ces sentiments est tellement authentique.
Merci Kristina pour être mon inspiration au quotidien, je suis Kayture depuis de nombreuses années mais c’est la première fois que je décide de donner mon avis. Tu as réalisé tellement de choses extraordinaires, et cependant, je suis convaincue que tu les mérites vraiment.
Merci pour partager tant d’émotions avec tes lecteurs et surtout, ne t’arrête jamais. Il y a encore sûrement beaucoup de choses à réaliser et d’après ce que j’observe en suivant ton blog, tu es capable de beaucoup.
Je te souhaite une très bonne continuation et le meilleur pour les années à venir et continue de me faire rêver!

Hello Kristina! You’re a beautiful person, inside and out and that’s a beautiful photoshooting. :)
I have one advice. Addressing your readership as one sounds a little bit unconsidered. These are all different people, not identifying with one another. :)

Hi Kristina!!
We love your message and the pictures are beautiful!!
Happy Holidays!
Best Wishes,
Sofia & Maria

This is beautiful! Thank you so much for sharing.

What a magical tale, I can tell you really do care about your family, friends, and readers, and that’s what makes this campaign with Cartier so much more than just advertisement. You grasp the essence of what the love bracelet signifies, and why it is so special to wear.

Keep up the amazing work, Kristina!

Hello Kristina!

First, those pictures are amazing! I really fell in love with them. Paris is such a beautiful city (in every time of the year) and you are so beautiful as well. They really capture the idea of love and peace and harmony, so beautiful.
It’s great how you really care about your readers, I really appreciate that.

Hope you will get some snow there, but I must say that I doubt it, because I live in Helsinki, and still we do not have any snow at all, it just rains all the time. And after all it’s Finland…

Love your blog and you! And great last days before Christmas for everyone!

Love from Finland

Beautiful both in pictures and writing. Stunning photographs as always, and love the choice of neutrals, such elegance. Beautiful post!

An absolute beautiful post, Kristina! The outfit AND your words. I think it’s so great that you and James were able to work past relationship issues (I’m sure it’s hard being in the public’s eye all the time) to become friends, business partners and dream chasers together. That’s how you know you guys truly love each other even as friends. It’s so incredibly rare and I wish you both and the Kayteam all the best as you guys continue on this magnificent adventure.

You do love your readers in return. I KNOW you do. Considering the amount of followers you have and to STILL respond to me on Instagram means a lot and it shows that you care (started following you on my other account @huongctvo, hehe). What you do and how you think has kept me coming back to your blog time and again. I strive to surround myself with big dreamers and doers and even though we haven’t met, you truly are one of them. You should really see my vision wall or dreamboard as most call it. I put you (and Nicole Warne) all over it because you remind me of so many things: to be classy, to have fun, to get out there and see what the world has to offer, to share your message/voice and to always enjoy life’s moments all while looking like a classy bosslady, haha! You are following AND listening to your heart, dreaming big and have never cease to amaze me. You push yourself to go outside your comfort zone all the time (I know some might not agree when you venture outside your classic looks, but I admire you for just being different and trying new things) and truly are a FASHION blogger. I’m so happy that social media connected us because I want to be around dreamers all the time! xo

I like this series a lot better than the one you did for Louis Vuitton. You look so elegant and classy and the quality of the photos is brilliant as always

Lovely bracelet and photos!

Is a great honor to have such a wonderful person around us with such a loving capacity! Your words had confirmed me that we’re not in the anonymity. You left me astounded with your words and, to the degree that corresponds to me, loved back.

I personally got impressed with this words. I really thought you were to announce a great Mr. Super Someone that got to your heart and..taran.. there were weddings plans which, in any case are well deserved since you had worked so much and really don’t stop doing so.

I reiterate my support, utmost admiration and love for you, your work, your family and everything you do. Much successes to you in everything! Keep just being as amazing as you are, por favor! :-)

NEW POST IN MY BLOG!! http://diamondconestilopropio.blogspot.com.es/

je rejoins quelques commentaires plus haut, c’est naïf d’affirmer que les choses durent… particulièrement les relations, les sentiments, quel qu’ils soient. après ce qui dure, c’est le souvenir, c’est sûr que quoi qu’il arrive dans le futur, James et toi, vous aurez partagez tout ça ensemble (et c’est assez énorme!) et ça ne s’effacera pas, c’est inscrit et vous aurez un passé en commun. Mais pour le reste… who knows… Ca n’empêche en rien les projets pro d’avenir, mais s’aventurer sur le terrain de la “promesse à vie” c’est un enfermement et ça empêche parfois d’aller de l’avant. il arrive que les chemins se séparent, pour se rejoindre plus tard parfois. ou pas. tout bouge, tout évolue, et… heureusement! ça veut dire que nous aussi on évolue, qu’on avance. Parfois pour avancer, il faut détacher des liens, seulement si ces liens nous empêchent d’avancer bien sûr. Et loin d’être une vision triste, c’est juste lucide en fait. A partir de là, on vit toutes ses relations autrement, peut être même de manière plus précieuse, parce qu’on a pris conscience d’une certaine “fragilité” dans tout ça…

Joli week end à toi Kristina!
