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!

Nice, Franace

Posted in france, life by ladylouis on May 17, 2010

I’m finally in Nice! And I finally got my laptop connected to the Internet.

I love this city! For me as an artistic person it’s  a really good place for  inspiration!( I’ll post more photos later. ) And off course the temperature is lovely, people are friendly and the food is delicious. I’m staying at a beautiful hotel on a dorm/shared room with two other girls. I think it’s a really good way to meet other people, especially when traveling alone.

Now I’m off to the beach. Life is good. Bye.

Sorry for not posting anything lately. But our Internet connection broke down. Now I’m actually at Burger King, just to use their free WiFi.  Today it’s only 3 days till I’m in Nice. (If the ashes will be good to me).

For those of you who don’t know, I’m gonna try to find a job there and live there for a while.  France. Ah, I can’t wait. And, yes, I’m going all by myself. And, yes, I’m absolutely gonna blog you everything about it. So hang in there. France next.

Bags packed

Posted in france, life, photography by ladylouis on May 7, 2010

I’ve spent some days at my parents house, near Kristiansand. Now my bags are packed and tomorrow morning I’m headed to Oslo. I have to bring everything I’ll need in France now, and leave everything else behind.

One bag, 76 liters, maximum 20 kg, is gonna carry all my possessions for the next few months. I’ve been a backpacker before, so actually, that wont be a problem. I can’t wait to travel again. Once a backpacker, always a backpacker!?

Next sunday I’m off! Wish me luck!

Good night

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.
