NEED SOME SLEEP So I must admit that I am quite excited that the week-end is finally approaching, you must think I’m weird since it is summer holidays and that it’s supposed to be week-end for me all week long, but I’ve been working like a crazy person lately on new projects for the blog : a lot of e-mails, photo editing, skype conferences, business lunches and meetings. Not to mention all the pictures I had to edit after our trip in Milan, because you might know that James shoots all the images of the blog but what you don’t know since I don’t think I have ever mentionned it is that I am the one who edits them, meaning that I make sure that the light is okay, play a little bit with the colours and make sure that the contrast is good such as the size of the images : and all that takes quite a lot of time afterall, around 3 or 4 hours for one post in total. We really focus on quality and want to show you guys the best pictures possible, it’s so important for us. I love doing this so much, more than anything actually you know. Sometimes I am even speechless because of all the incredible paths and opportunities my blog has brought me to, I couldn’t be more gratefull and it motivates me to work as much as I can, and I mean… Call it work, I would say it’s more litte taking care of a baby, giving it food and stuff, yep my blog is my babe, nothing’s as exciting compared to that, I love it. And it’s not that annoying travelling and getting to meet all these amazing people, I mean I’m okay (I am actually so excited). So because I never post on week-ends, well sometimes I do but these are little surprises for you guys, I am finally going to spend some quality and full time away from my computer with my family. I took the decision to avoid posting on week-end because it’s friends and family time, not only for me but for you guys as well! So instead of geeking, it’s time to go out and have fun. It is a perfect way to reload the batteries, right? So I hope you will enjoy this new instagoodies post which is filled with pictures from Milan and general shots of my little life. Wish you all a lovely end of the day and of course a splendid week-end!
