Inspire me

Inspire me

Audrey Hepburn.
Dancer, actress, artist and funny face, she decided to question the beauty canon of her time and use the attention surrounding her to make a stand in children’s rights and humanitarian actions. She was such a brave and sophisticated woman; she reached her dreams and made a difference. She’s one of my biggest inspiration. Her memory pushes me to, like her, move my butt and do what I want! Therefore, I’m leaving to Australia in a few weeks to be part of a humanitarian project in Adelaide. Also I’m trying watercolor again.

Until next time, have fun.

Here in New York it’s only the second day of sunny spring. SO sick of winter I jump in my shorts and am ready for a great summer ahead. It is a time for fresh starts, spring is the rebirth of nature and the occasion to reinvent yourself !!

Have fun and enjoy the sun, happy mother’s day !

Is spring calling ?

Is spring calling ?

Or is it ? I just came back from Spring break and although London was in full flower power, I’m still waiting for New York to bloom. I feel like in the winter, I am absolutely hibernating and as soon as the smallest breeze of warmth hits, I am defrosting inside. Maybe that’s why I’m hyper all sumer long : I contained it all winter.
It’s also a mood that we can feel around. Everyone is exited for spring even if it’s still freezing. You can actually feel the city buzzing with the bees. It sometime results in interesting fashion choices such as skirts and Uggs, shorts and chapkas etc…
In another note, have you checked out Soko ? She’s a French artist and from “I’ll kill her” to “first love never dies” she makes me feel like sun on my face.

Until next time friends, have fun ❤

Ski is NOT sexy

Happy holidays everyone !

I went home to France for the holidays and went skiing. After a long and serious talk with my sister, we established the fact that against all stereotypes : ski is not a glamourous sport. From the moment where you slip into your thick tights to the one where you take off your ski helmet underneath witch your hair is sweaty and flat, ski is not recommended if you want to impress someone. I’m sorry but the only one who stay sexy in ski vacation is big foot.

But anyway, I hope you’re stuffing your have with food and spending time with your family and friends cause they are the ones that count the most in the end. (aaaaaaw)

Have fun, lots of love,

Penelope ❤

Best day of my life

Best day of my life

I am not a super fan of the American Authors but I can not get this song out of my head. It’s literally on repeat all the time. I had to do this triptych about a song for visual computing and of course I picked this one. As some friends of mine said : it represents me, it’s just too happy ! And what is wrong with loving puppies, rainbows and cupcakes ??? So I’m sharing my joy with you guys, and I hope that this song will be stuck in your head for a long time !

Lots of love, Penelope

Autumn is there

Autumn is there

Autumn is full of crap.

I realized way too late, that November in New York is about ten times colder than in Paris !! So this doodle may represent an awesome and wonderful weather when really I am wrapped like an onion in the biggest coat ever. Not as sexy. But what the hell ! Let’s pretend that fall is the time where trees are changing into a beautiful rainbow of colors, and pumpkin spice flavored wind is blowing in our hair when we really all look like little eskimos. And seriously, who would care about fall if it wasn’t for the pumpkin spice latté ?

So until next time, happy fall everybody !!
