A week in bed.

Paris, France



Edited: Since I wrote this post about 2 days ago, horrible things have happened. I normally wouldn’t write about it on my blog, just because I think fashion is the beautiful little world where we can escape from all those worries and awful things. Everyone is talking about it already, everyone is sad and destroyed and angry about it, but bad things happen every single day in the world, brought by natural forces or by human hand. There is always earthquakes, hurricanes, fires, shootings, plane crashes, accidents, if we start bringing those horrible things into every single part of our life would we actually have a life to carry on with? I think everyone should respect other people’s privacy and right to moan and grief in silence without any “show” of it; as well as people who choose to ignore it and cary on with their life just because they don’t want to be torn apart by every single sad event happening in this huge world filled with 7 billion people. You know I hate talking about my feelings, it’s even hard for me to do it with people closest to me, but it doesn’t mean I don’t have them. That being said, I decided that since that post was actually shot in Paris, it felt strange not to mention it. So I would like to send my love to everyone, not just people in Paris, but people across France, people across the world, anyone scared and anyone sad. Be strong and have hope, for without hope there is no point in waiting for tomorrow.

Apologies for the lack of news out here on my blog, but I have spent the past week in bed feeling very ill. My lungs are still weak and it is hard to breathe, and I am hating this whole situation more and more everyday. It is utterly frustrating to have to keep cancelling meetings, shootings, appointments; makes me feel like I’ve lost control of my life. But life does go on as well as my intense consumption of garlic, ginger and Sauerkraut.

The goal right now is to boost my immunity back… I would say back to what it was at the end of summer, as Autumn didn’t just bring cold weather and viruses but also too much travelling and work load for me to be able to maintain a healthy lifestyle (eating, sleeping, exercising). On Tuesday we are leaving for Switzerland for a mega exciting project with Jimmy Choo, so I have to be back in shape before I get on the plane again, because there is nothing worse then spending your Winter Holidays in bed… believe me, I did that last year.

    Sanatatea trebuie pretuita si alegerile de gen vegan sau alte chestii care nu sunt firesti distrug metabolismul. Dar fiecare cu propriile sale alegeri. Dupa 10 ani de medicina realizez ca lumea refuza sa fie corect informata.

  • what an idea

    You must get wrapped everywhere, you must take car about your lungs and protect them from the cold, take care about your respiratory sistem. In this season you may be protected from toes to head with layers of wool and other cozy and warm materials, scarves and turtlenecks must be with you everywhere you go
