Photo inspiration #2

I stumbled upon this picture and it was one of the few moments my heart skipped a beat. This partially comes from the fact that since I’m a makeup artist I have grown a love for loose powder. (read here which one is my BFF!). I can not explain why but there is just something about it, such a fine grain that polishes the skin so nicely. Somehow it reminds me of fairy tales and Tinkerbell. I also liked the ‘still life’ effect in this picture.

Well you can already guess where this is going, I got inspired to do the same.

My question to you:

Which one do you like more, 1,2 or 3 and why?



Photo-Inspiration #1

 Photo from the web

One morning standing in line at Starbucks I fell in love with their advertisement photo for American Pancakes. There is just something about breakfast….On a Sunday I enjoy hot rolls in the oven, fresh coffee and Norah Jones through my speakers.

When traveling I also get really excited about breakfast options at hotels.

Inspired by this photo I took one similar at home:

I love all kinds of bread but this one is my all time favorite German bread called Weltmeister. Funny enough my mom send it over to me from Spain. (half baked ;)) This bread is really nutritious but is not too heavy in your stomach.

Sidenote: I’m completely done with the bread from our local supermarket AH which is just full of air. I kept eating it until 2 o’clock in the night because I was always hungry as it never satisfied my appetite. You can imagine I also had a sleeping problem… my doctor instead of giving me sleeping pills sent me to a dietician where I learned what  my eating choices where doing to me (I had quite some fat around my stomach as well). I never could have thought that making the right food choices would help me get my sleeping pattern back to normal again. Eating nutritious bread really makes  a difference for me. 

My little sister has entered a photo contest at her school and she wanted my advise so she e-mailed her work to me and when I saw her theme it just cracked me up:

This is on the balcony of our mom’s house in Spain. I just love that we had the same theme going on in hour heads. I hope that she wins!

Edit: My siter won the contest! So proud!

I’d love to hear about your favorite breakfast!
