I know the runner's going to tell you
There ain't no cowboy in my hair
So now he's buried by the daisies
So I could stay the tallest man in your eyes, babe
I sense a spy up in the chimney
From all the evidence I've burned
I guess he'll read it in the smoke now
And soon to ashes I'll return
I know the spy is going to tell you
It's not my flag up in the pole
So now he's buried by the lilies
So I could stay forever more in your eyes, babe
So now we're dancing through the garden
And what a garden I have made
And now that death will grow my jasmine
I find it soothing I'm afraid
Now there is no need for suspicion
There ain't no frog kissing your hand
I won't be lying when I tell you
That I'm a gardner I'm a man
In your eyes babe

I have been to the desert and back, I almost got hit by a bus in London, I tried surfing in Bordeira, I ate bad sushi in Berlin, I got drunk in Paris, I got severe blisters on my feet both in Lisbon and Madrid. I swam naked in the Swedish archipelago, I lost my voice in Gothenburg, I ate risotto in Milan, I fell off my bike in Stockholm. A psychic told me I will grow very old, a man told me I looked like Heidi Fleiss, my brother is in love, my sister is in New York, my drummer told me I’m bad of appreciating moments of grandness.

I am also hard at work in the studio.

My mind is occupied, my heart is healing, my voice in progress.

Lykke Li is finally back in the recording studio and I can hardly wait to see the outcome.

The Art of French Boho ::: Vanessa Paradis

A fedora.

Vintage items.

Heavy and light materials in a seemingly random mix.

Warm colors.

Make up in brown and beige tones.

None to only a few accessories.

Wild hair.

A smile to kill for.

All-Time Favorite ::: Vanessa Paradis on the Cover of Vogue Paris

Posted in Uncategorized by strytllng on June 14, 2010

French singer Vanessa Paradis on the cover of Vogue Paris, November 2008.

This is by far my favorite Vogue cover of all times. Vanessa’s posture, her gaze, the styling, the color choices, the facewrap and the make-up – it all screams classic INNER & OUTER beauty. Mademoiselle looks like she is bathing in grace every morning but the right inspiration for a strong 80s power & beauty look just adds perfection to Paradis. No need to mention that her infamous toothgap hints how unconventional she is. Now this is what Vogue is famous for  and lucky me has kept the original issue in a special place at home.
