"strange desire".... teaser

with this super cool teaser i have a very exciting announcement to make! 

from now on you will have to type a couple less letters when looking for this little blog of mine....

(and to make sure you follow me to my blogs new home) the teaser to "strange desire"

so this one day.... at deus in changgu, bali... i did this (more or less spontaneous) photoshoot... with an incredibly talented photographer... kornel wirawan. and i can't wait to shear more of his work!

in this photo i look relaxed but i am pretty nervous about working with a new blog...... please, bare with me.

the happy guy

i ran into this guy right before stepping onto this beach on koh rong. 

i mentioned how much i loved the little white flower in his hair and he said that (looking through the trees and getting the first glimpse of the sand that we were about tho feel between our tows) that he is having the happiest moment of his life.

i hope you can remember the last time you had that similar moment. 

the beauties... vol 6.

the women of laos did not only have a natural way of beautifully mixing patterns and colors, but they also rocked some pretty sweet #vagabondeadwear.

#tbt turbans

remember my post on bad-hair-days? well (you might have figured)..... for me, those days are over. but by adding a little "#tbt" to this post and we are all goooood. because here are some photos of me rockin some turbans and head scarves....

get ready for my i-am-really-excited-about-what-i-am-about-to-eat face.....

and of course, lets not forget about my little #vagabondheadwear collection (that you can follow on my instagram), that i am getting quite proud of.....


meet the amazon...

ever since arriving in bali i have been surrounded with the most beautiful creative energy. one of the sources is leanna, who is not only an inspiring photographer (who has a way of making you feel naturally beautiful, in front of her lens) but a gentle, fee-spirited, golden amazon.... and i can't wait to share more of our work)

little things that make her smile:
flashing eyes from strangers... 
beautiful flowers in an environment that doesn't look like they belong...
children's giggles... 
colorful food...

the best feeling....

as i have mentioned before... i am endlessly grateful to have the family that i do. when i try to sum up the feeling my parents give me... two words come to mind: 

safe and free

...and i decided that is the best feeling anybody can give.

march 4th 2015, changgu, bali... photos by leanna, who i had an instant creative / life / spirit connection with (and you will definitely be hearing more of....). check out her beautiful work on www.leannajeanphoto.com

perfect randoms
