Futur sucks
What it used to be before our cellular lives

A-miu-miu-sement.

Going through some Vogue MagazineSeptember -or was it August?- Issue of my mom, I was amazed -chocked?- by the number of pages that adds had conquered. And mostly because I did not really like the "fashion photoshoot", I decided I would try to do something a little bit different than what I'm used to for the following reasons :

 1° I don't have time/energy to move my bed and so -handsome (what a pun!)- have the big white wall as a cool background picture,
2° I only had few ideas for the outfits, nothing for what's with it -like the "universe of the photographer-,
3° a friend is passing by in an hour so that we can go to a movie.

Also, I have to admit that -first, this post was written and programmed on the very last day of August, -second, I don't like the pictures, only the make up and hair, of which I was really proud.

I thought the title was funny and quite true, as far as I'm concerned. Adds are a result of our "Pictured Society" in which everything has to look bright, beautiful and flawless at the same time. They are everywhere and convey an idea of what's okay and what's not. They're pictures (thanks captain obvious) and filtered/retouched movies in which everything is perfect, from the tip to the top. It has even become something anybody could do, though social media, from Instagram to Facebook, without forgetting Twitter and Tinder. People, brands, couples -have you seen all those "Cute Couple" vids on Youtube?- artists, unis, everyone/thing/institution is promoting itself out there on the internet, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Pictures, that were at the beginning of the century, a really scarce thing has become -thanks to numeric and smartphones- a thing anyone can do, anywhere, anytime. From some rare important moments's testimony, photographs have become souvenirs of every second.
Even that blog is some sort of an advertisement of myself.
Anyway, these were a lot of words for not much to say, now you know what November's theme is, "Add-iction", so if you have any other ideas or so, feel free to tell them.

Mix and Match from Miu Miu.

My legs look like some kind of rotten sausage you can find in the "end-of-the-week" trashcan.
Yep, it was really early in the morning (something like 10 a.m or so) and yes, I was so fucking tired.

Make up, hair and weird faces.



Like the "old" lady in the first scan.
