Another beautiful day in France, which is gonna be spent in Cannes. Actually not celebrity-hunting, but sun-bathing on the, hopefully, beautiful beach. I’m gonna go with two Swedish girls from my hotel, who are on an Inter rail trip around Europe.

Hope to get some tan today. Need it, but afraid I’m gonna turn in to a lobster. Anyways, it’s gonna be nice for once being on a beach with actual sand! ( The beach in Nice = stones, stones and stones)

Pictures will be out soon! Au revoir!

Morning quote

Posted in fashion, quotes by ladylouis on May 10, 2010

Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life.
Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking.
Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice.
And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become.
Everything else is secondary.
-Steve Jobs-

Nuit, bonne nuit

Posted in fashion, life, photography by ladylouis on May 6, 2010

Night time is really the best time to work.  All the ideas are there to be yours because everyone else is asleep.  -Catherine O’Hara-

Yes, I’m a night person. All my best essays from high school were written in the darkest hours of the night.  I guess it’s the peace that makes it so good for work. And ideas! I always get my best, or craziest, ideas at night. Like moving to France. Or cutting my hair really, really short.

One thing is certain, my most creative moments as an artist or designer has been in the middle of the night. Why can’t I be a 9-5 working girl? Are there others like me out there?

I guess every artist has to be a bit weird. Well, let’s see what this night will bring me. Bonne nuit!

Salutation of the dawn

Posted in fashion, life, photography, quotes by ladylouis on May 6, 2010

Listen to the Exhortation of the Dawn!
Look to this Day!
For it is Life, the very Life of Life.
In its brief course lie all the
Verities and Realities of your Existence.
The Bliss of Growth,
The Glory of Action,
The Splendor of Beauty;
For Yesterday is but a Dream,
And To-morrow is only a Vision;
But To-day well lived makes
Every Yesterday a Dream of Happiness,
And every Tomorrow a Vision of Hope.
Look well therefore to this Day!
Such is the Salutation of the Dawn!  -Kalidasa-

Carpe diem – Seize the day!

Today: I’ve started packing my bags for Nice. Ah France, I can’t wait. 10 days to go.

It’s hard fitting your whole life into a 20kg bag. Especially when you love clothes, shoes and accessories so much. What can I leave at home? What is worthy living with me in Nice?  (Oh yeah, we have some really important issues in this world.)

I’ll take some wardrobe photos when I get a camera. Hopefully, I’m going to borrow one from my boyfriend in short time. See ya!

Oh, btw, do something GOOD FOR YOURSELF today!

The woman in the mirror

Posted in design, fashion, france, life, photography by ladylouis on May 5, 2010

‘I was blind. Now I see. I’d forgotten what the colors really looked like. I’d forgotten all the shapes existed. I’d seen too much, so I turned blind. My blindness I couldn’t even see.

Today I dared to take a look. I opened up my firmly shut eyes. And what a sight! What a delight, clear picture that revealed itself from the shadows. Words come short in describing such joy, such beauty. Only eyes can see. Mine are open. Looking. Living.’

Welcome to my blog. Excusemi is a blog of inspiration. Inspiration in life, art, design and fashion. There will be words and pictures. Some with wisdom others maybe not. But in the end I hope someone out there can feel some kind of inspiration from reading this blog.

Who am I? My name is Helene. I’m from Norway. 20 years old. Currently living in Oslo, but moving to Nice, France in less than 2 weeks. I call myself an artist. That just simplifies a long explanation. But for you I will try;I’ve been a dancer (ballet, jazz and contemporary) for many years, but not as much anymore, I’ve studied graphic design, I make and design my own clothes, I’m drawing all the time and couldn’t be without it, I love everything that’s called art, design and fashion. Etc…. Therefor: I’m an artist. An artistic soul at least.

Well, enough said. I’m a 20 years old artistic soul moving to France the 16th of May.

Au revoir.
