LOLA

_DSC0894

Well, it’s been a while. To say the least! I do feel like I explained my periodic absence on the blog longly in previous articles, but it’s always a bittersweet feeling. Coming back, laying my fingers on the keyboard and just writing down these words straight open to you all always felt so good. And that’s why I keep coming back. This freedom of expression given to us all through the curious thing that is internet is a gift and a curse both at the same time. The gift itself is a precious one though and I am so glad to be able to have this chance to connect with you from time to time, when I feel like my heart has some words or thoughts interesting enough to share.

As a personal update, here’s what I’ll say. Although I’ve been posting drastically less (and feeling drastically better because of it let’s just put it out there) on both my social media and blog, my life was been evolving and changing in the most absurd and drastic way. To my best surprise. Finally things I’ve kept deep down somewhere in me are taking proper form. My understanding of life and what I want to make out of it maturing and taking a shift I enjoy watching grow. Progressively, I am becoming the person I want to be, the person I could be truly proud of and aiming to do what my heart is truly longing for. Taking space from the virtual world was the best decision I ever took. Even though for so long it felt like it was adding more pressure than anything else. Until I realized that it was a pressure I was inflicting on my own self. With that being behind, I am so focused right now on being whole, to the world and to my self. Embracing each and every single trait of my being to be as sincere with myself and my life as I possibly can, and without regrets.

I have been working so much on writing. I’ve just been writing pages and pages of text that I hope, and probably will share with you one day. The work I’ve done for my previous book was so fulfilling, it’s a process I enjoy so much. We always have our eyes so turned to the world that we forget to look inside. It’s so nice to find myself at night, while the whole world feels like sleeping, drowning into the deepest part of myself and reminiscing over life itself. These are true, rare moments of peace, tranquility, serenity. Just a contemplation of the arbitrary curiosity that constitutes the world and how our thinking plays along with it, trying to bring in some meaning. These words laid on paper, reflecting a moment, a time, a thought born from life and it’s experiences seems to just float, completely out of time, and for a moment, while everything around feels so ephemeral, us and all the rest, these ideas laid down are the closest we get to a feeling of infinity.

Of course, I’ve been also extremely focused on my music. It is my main occupation and priority at the moment as I am constantly in and out of the studio working with new producers and developing the project. I can’t tell you exactly when more music will come out but when it’s ready, it’ll be the right time. There’s no deadline to such things. And although I hate speaking about things that I can’t show, I can’t wait for it to simply speak for itself. For you to understand why waiting sometimes, especially in our current world where it all goes so fast, is actually such a beautiful, and great thing. So if anything, this project means way too much to me to spoil it.

I am working on a few other surprises, things I can’t mention yet, but just know, your girl’s busy ;) and I promise, it’s worth the wait. It’s worth the distance, the absence and so on. I feel like this all allows me to be a better me. So I can be a better me for you too. With that being said, I wanted to share with you today a set of pictures that Cibelle and I shot together last year. We wanted to create something embodying the L.A scenery and mix it together with a literary inspiration, which is a character we’ve already used in previous shoots, Dolores a.k.a Lolita from Nabokov’s novel of the same title. The colors are sweet like candy, I got an old taste of what it feels like to be blonde again by wearing this crazy wig, but the eyes… they’re meant to be sad. If you read the book, you’ll know why. It’s a lollipop with a bitter filling. Hope you guys will enjoy it. And talk to you soon!

When you write a new article on your blog,
I read it several times,
not because I didn’t understand what you said,
but seriously to enjoy my self with such a beautiful tallent,
expressing her self in depth and transparency,
and the words flowing smooth non stop.
Your style represnts the honesty of your personality as a writer,
not hesitant, confident in her self,
believing in her pure thoughts and breave ideas.
Perfect as a model, perfect as a writer, princess.

I love ❤️ the styling of these photos. The hair , glasses dress all give a fabulous 60′s vibe !

For my birthday they gave me your Loreal male up box, after than for Christmas I had several problems to book them by myself. I read all the articles of your blog from the first, in about six months. You are my greatest source of inspiration for my dream.
I have always seen a lot of me in you, in what you think and how you think it. In what you do, in your dreams and successes. Can’t wait to see your growth.
With love,

Always nice to hear from you, missed reading your deep words so much. reading through your words has always been like a ‘sweet escape’ for me. Hope you will publish those writings one day.
It’s always nice to take breaks from our screens, the world of social media and enjoy the moments, the people, the places or the situations genuinely instead.
Whatever that change is, the most important thing is that you’re happy.
Peace

These are tips from life I liked to share with you from time to time, some I known through direct experience,
And I knew others through my readings, and the main problem in all these images is the problem that has plagued me for many years, so I turned to thinking about with my mind and heart altogether.
It is the same problem that I found many people think like me, maybe more than me They are looking for a solution.
A problem that can not be identified in a word. It’s a problem with life.
This rivalry, which no one has ever escaped, even those who have the full happiness of money, health, love and peace of mind, even those who have been subjected to questions stood in front of confused, and tried to get rid of them in peace.
How can a man live in peace with himself and with others? And how the defeated are acting in the way of life and the victorious.
What’s hope .. What’s pessimism .. And what is optimism. What is sorrow .. What is joy?
All these questions are what I am trying through these writings, including the psychological pictures, to answer them.
The issue at the end is just an attempt, not more to be a set of “aspirin tablets” aimed at alleviating that old disease .. Human grief and rivalry with life.
Even these “pills” are not mine. Their truemakers are those heroes of these psychological images, or the great masters of writers and thinkers with whom I have lived for a while, such as Chekhov and Tolstoy.
If these psychological images got your satisfaction
Thanks to the owners of the real pharmacy of artists and different people.
If the result is the opposite .. Do not blame anyone else other than me .. Then forgive me ..
At the end it’s a try to heal myself too from the sorrow and distress of life caused me spiritual defeat in an era of my life.
And which was about to block all roads in front of me, and deprive me of any joy or enthusiasm to life..

Very Great article,loveee it :)

See photos, I feel these photos good girl with the wind ah, powder powder.

Very nice article ! I love the pictures shot by Cibelle, she’s a gifted photographer ! You’re still stunning; The color palette is great as well. Good job !

PS: where did you get your wig?

Love these set of pictures! So happy to see a new post x

Kristina, I’m so happy to see you post. I completely understand how you feel in terms of posting less. I’m on a 90-day Facebook hiatus myself and as I’m approaching the finish line, I’m not sure if I want to come back. I like being by myself and reflecting in whatever way I feel like. For me, it feels good to post less and less on that platform and more on my blog and IG. I feel like I’m more myself.

You know, you’re right. I never thought about waiting in that sense before. It is a beautiful thing. I’ve been waiting in certain areas of my life and have been impatient in other places. I think it’s because I’m so excited to see things unfold that I’ve been working hard on. I’m definitely going to take this and apply it to more areas of my life.

As always, it doesn’t matter how long the time is in between each post because I always look forward to your return when you do come back. As long as you’re happy and inspiration and passion are flowing through you, it’s all that matters! Much love! xo

Que pasada de shooting, la camisa es monísima. Esta guapísima.

Hoy toca un Look BBC
https://simplysory.wordpress.com/2017/04/27/bbc/

Each of those pages I have submitted to you reflectes how I felt about you in a specific moment, admiration or weakness,

In my depths, love develops a dynamic force that may captivate those who spread their emotions on the surface,
Because they do not resist the pressure of emotions that did not explode,
and prefer to mislead the hearts of their deposits,
and deluding what has nothing to do with passion,
and prefer to be satisfied with droplets scarce.

What is the meaning of what I’m writing?
I know you are my crush,
I am way afraid to say love.
I say this with my knowledge that little attention is so much.

How dare I communicate pursuant to this,
how did I get over it? I do not know.
praise be to God. I write on paper and do not say it to you,
because if you were now present in front of me , I will shy away after this talk,
for a long time,
and will not call you, or see me only after you forget.
even the writing I myself blame myself for it,
because I have all this freedom talking to you,
without considering how,
the other side will react about what I am saying?

Telling you, and I trust you ..
whether I am wrong or I am right,
although many times I see that the best thing to do is to stay comfortable around you,
and prefer to stay silent.

I know you made this post when I wrote to you in your previous one’is the queen staying in hebernation mode’ or something like that phrase, and I appreciate it.
And will honor you as your’re our quest in our nearby country’Lebanon’and I’m from the country of troubles which will never end’Iraq’
So here I’m inspired by your latest image on instagrm;

What would you do, if you were in my place

I have to cope
, my friend
Twenty thousand times a day

And sacrifice, my friend

Twenty thousand times a day

And despair, and fall

And rest, and tempted

And secure, and to make up

Twenty thousand times a day

If you, my friend, have to

To play like me on more than one horse

And dance like me

On the flames and smoke

If God plagued you

What do you do if you were in my place

I have to cope with

Various tribes of men

And to do love with trees, stones, and air

And to be hanged like me on sex cords

In the morning and evening
Summer, and winter

If you, my friend is forced

To drink, without any thirst

And crave, without being lustful

And live in the cities of tears and crying

If you, my friend, have to

To come back

Late night like any tumbler

Crushed,defeated

Like any tumbler

Exiled behind time and seconds limits

I wished, my friend

If you take my place

And suffer half of what I suffer..

This is a massege not a comment
Or I’m wrong, so don’t post it
Full regards to the princes

Attention Required: Human Or Robot?!
Those letters sent to you
it is better for them to stop
they still are as they came
addressed to everyone
I was wrong and I will be wrong no more
you became the laziest woman
when you read a letter
not to use your gentle talents
to differentiate between a letter and a comment
I’m worried they get tired
I relieve you from this job
as it seems difficult for you
as I am convinced, my lady
that your mind will never grow up

Wonderful! I really like your look and your style!!!!!
