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

She will never allow you to see her when she cries. She’s wearing her mask as a knight wears his armor. She walks tall so you can see she’s fine. She’ll never admit she’s broken inside. The loneliness is her sanctuary. Her only true friend.
How did it come to this?


We’re living in an age that left us all alone. We’re struggling without a cause. We’re living, but we’re not alive.

Paulo Says

Be brave. Take risks. Nothing can substitute experience. – Paulo Coelho-

You can become blind by seeing each day as a similar one. Each day is a different one, each day brings a miracle of its own. It’s just a matter of paying attention to this miracle. -Paulo Coelho-

When a person really desires something, all the universe conspires to help that person to realize his dream. -Paulo Coelho-

You have to take risks. We will only understand the miracle of life fully when we allow the unexpected to happen. -Paulo Coelho-

Black Noir

Posted in quotes by ladylouis on May 6, 2010

I’d like to wear a rainbow every day, and tell the world that everything is o.k. But I’ll try to carry off a little darkness on my back. Until things are brighter, I’m the Man in Black.

-Johnny Cash-

Nuit, bonne nuit

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!

Eyes wide open

“My eyes are an ocean in which my dreams are reflected”

Audrey says

Posted in life, quotes by ladylouis on May 5, 2010

“For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.”

“Pick the day. Enjoy it – to the hilt. The day as it comes. People as they come… The past, I think, has helped me appreciate the present – and I don’t want to spoil any of it by fretting about the future.”

“Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, it’s at the end of your arm, as you get older, remember you have another hand: The first is to help yourself, the second is to help others.”

Audrey Hepburn 1929-1993

Invisible life

Posted in life by ladylouis on May 5, 2010

She was afraid of herself. Her thoughts, her dreams, her passions. She’d been taught they were sinful and so she became frightened of them. After a while she was too afraid to ever listen to herself again. She lived her life as others wished her to. Deaf to her inner voices and blind to what could have been. She became invisible for others, but worst of all invisible to herself.
