Reading Pauls Smith’s notes for inspiration on the Sand

I am reading on the beach, once again, this beautiful book: Notes, by Paul Smith. Working in art & journalism means that I really like to try and be inspired by what I see every single day but also by other people's lives. People are a constant source of inspiration for me, so many ideas, so much creativity, so much passion around us all. I am a big fan of Paul Smith, not only for his beautiful designs but also for what he has built. Being a native Brit, I am still fond of my roots and Paul is also rather fond of his and consequently, has built a whole brand, a whole concept around them. I was given this book for my birthday and read it all immediatey but strangely, I am compelled to read through it often. It is an alphabetical collection of notes that Paul has put together. From being an entrepreneur, how he set up his thriving business, what he loves best in it, his own private life and his loves, places of interest to him and much more. It is so interesting to see how other creatives' minds work, it teaches us to think alternitavely. The photos are beautiful and accompany his text perfectly. I end up by marking the pages with colourful page separators when I want to rememember an idea, a concept, a colour, a place, just something that has inspired me. He is the king of all the hues of lifestyle that I know and a real inspiration to me. I hope you read the book and enjoy it too xxx

The vibe that says: we are together cause we defend ourselves between us. Read on...

The Best English bookshop in Paris!

English bookshop - ParisI was lucky enough to be born with three mother tongues (french, italian and english) but the one that I really really prefer reading in is English. Being away from English litterature isn't an easy thing for me and I am not always the biggest fan of ordering books online. I love spending lots of time strolling through the aisles, browsing through the shelves, smelling that ink and paper that you can only find in a bookshop. Attica, in the 11th arrondissement near me, is a wonderful english bookshop which stocks a myriad of works for children and adults of all kinds and interests. I even found some old John Wyndhams here that I bought and reread eagerly, as if I had no idea of what happened next in the plot. English litterature Read on...
