I am working at an Insurance Company and believe me there is no place for creativity. Even though I like my job I feel like I can not express a part of me that really wants to “get out”. So instead of being frustrated I started to be creative at home. I even decided to take some lessons about drawing and painting. I started in September this year and I do not regret it at all!
When I draw and paint I am “somewhere else”, on another planet forgetting about everything bad and it feels so good! It helps me to enjoy the present moment, to focus on one thing at a time and not stress about tomorrow.
When I draw and paint I connect to myself, I express parts of me, I learn to be patient. It challenges me as well as there is always new techniques to master, new tools to use. I never stop learning…
Here below are some of my paintings and drawings. It is not perfect but it is me and I am proud of my work!
I managed to go to the cocktail organized by the Dyptique shop located in Versailles just next to the Château for the launching of their Christmas candles. I went there after work and I could admire all the lights of the city. It was beautiful!
I ended up buying the “Sapin” candle and got a little package filled wit gifts and samples!
I am a big fan of the brand “Dyptique”. I love their candles, their perfume, their packaging, ….. basically I love everything they do!
This summer I bought “L’ombre de l’eau” as perfume oil roll-on. It is an alcohol-free oil and I can roll it on my skin several times during the day. I have it in my bag in its elegant “etui”.
Last week I received the most beautiful invitation from their beautiful shop in Versailles to a cocktail where we can discover their new collection “Forêts imaginaires”.
Here below are some pictures of the beautiful shop in Versailles. I love the decoration of the wall! I hope I will be able to attend to the cocktail and share some great pictures!
Stay tuned and have a nice week!
