Here I have the chance to explore one of my passions: photography. I don’t feel confined or sad anymore as I did in California. Now I’m feeling strong and invigorated each day. I am both lucky and grateful that I am able to capture the spirit behind new places in my photos and feel a connection while telling my stories.
I put together in this post some Fall-inspired flat lays which I took a while back – only shared on Instagram.
I instantly fell in love with the whole process and since then, I’ve been practicing, not worring at all about outcome, but just having fun in the doing, even when adding the tiniest little things with tweezers. I enjoy gathering all the supplies, taking a trip to the flower shop and putting a lot of time into styling each photo whitout trying to be perfect. I must really be enjoying myself as even the clean-up after doesn’t bother me!
Thought of sharing the Autumn flat lays with a wintery atmosphere. Also showing off this 1950s oval shaped vintage mirror that I found in the Flea Market in LA and transformed it into a new shabby wooden board, a project that took me two weeks to complete.
Below are some photos I took recently with flowers from a local market, leaves, pine cones, branches and such that I picked up on my walks home, and fruits and vegetables from the farmers market, all combined.
Below is a great and delicious recipe with ingredients that I love to cook with! It’s a slow cooker stew with carrots and Angus beef. The best part of this recipe is that if you don’t have time to cook, you just placed the excess of the stew in Tupperware and refrigerate it for other meals.
You’re going to say Oh MY GOD it’s an hour of preparation and cooking, but you won’t notice time passing. At the end it’s worth it and remember you can freeze the rest.
