Daily Inspiration: Regina Spektor

Photobucket
The first time I heard about Regina Spektor was when I was introduced to the song 'modern girls and old fashioned men' by a friend of mine. (the song is a collaboration between her and one of my favourite bands, the strokes.) At that point I did not now that this pretty Russian girl with red haid would rapidly become one of my favourite artists. Nowadays I adore Regina. Not only is she insanely beautiful, she also has an amazing voice and her music comes close to perfection. I'm in love with her weird lyrics. Whether she sings about biblical figures or lonely summers, she always manages to make you want to listen to her songs over and over again. If only she would come to Europe again, I would love to see her perform!

Daily Inspiration: Hubble Deep Field

Photobucket
(Today's inspiration is slightly different from what you're used to, but nevertheless I think it certainly qualifies)
Ever since I was a little girl I've been fascinated with astronomy. I've always thought that galaxies, nebula's, supernova's and other exotic phenomena were immensely intriguing. And nothing has ever excited me more than learning/discovering something new about the universe, whether it would be the discovery of a new planet, the theories behind quantum physics or the existence of dark matter. Stephen Hawking's book 'a Brief History of Time' is one of my all time favourites and over the last few years I have spend a fair amount of money on books and dvd's about pretty much everything that's even remotely related to astronomy. So I suppose it won't come as too much of a surprise when I tell you that it has always been a dream of mine to study physics.
Unfortunately this dream came to an abrupt end when I first failed a math test. And then another. And another. Later my lack of mathematical skills (they strangely only disappeared during tests and never during classes) prohibited me from getting the grades I needed to be allowed into the physics program, eventhough I was quite good at both physics and chemistry. All this inevitably led me to the conclusion that I would never study physics. Or at least not in the first decade or so. And eventhough I've settled for something 'less' right now and am even rather content with where that has taken me, I never got over my passion for astronomy.
Because of that today's inspiration will be this Hubble deep field shot. I know that seems a bit geeky, but it always inspires me to learn more and it reminds me of what I love the most!

Stefania Papparelli
When I included one of her photographs in an earlier flickr favourites post I was not yet acquainted with the rest of her, what turns out to be, great work. Luckily some of her other photographs appeared on foto decadent, which led me to discover that this woman is yet another photographer that can be added to my favourites list. And because of that I figured she would be the perfect candidate for today's inspiration post.

Daily Inspiration: A.P.C.

Photobucket
This Saturday I'm going to pay Antwerp a little visit. In the first place to check out yet another university, but (secretly) also for some minor shopping. One of the stores I will certainly not walk past is A.P.C. (situated at Lombardenvest 12)
Photobucket
In order to prepare myself for this 'highly adventureous' undertaking I took a look at APC's website and came across these beautiful clothes (pictured above). I have to admit, I'm slightly in love with black skirt. Unfortunately it's rather expensive, it comes at a price of €150 if I'm not mistaken. So I'll have to find a way to convince myself it's (not) worth it. Either way, I'm looking forward to Saturday. Antwerp is one of my favourite cities and I always enjoy being there. I'll be taking my camera with me and hopefully I'll have some spare time to take photographs.
In the mean time, I'll be enjoying these wonderful ad campaign photographs, and hopefully so will you.
