    Dear rockers, this was my latest photo shoot from yesterday.
    Me and Carolina went down to the beach for some shots. Once again here's the proof you don't need a sunny day to get good pictures.
    She posed in a dark outfit with baggy shirt and all-the-way-down-to-the-feet skirt. I pictured in colors and black and white, but you know I can't resist a good monochromatic scale. With the black clothing she wore silver accessories, two necklaces and five rings, plus the gypsy chain on her hair (which I didn't post), but the poor thing had to suffer a little for the shots, it's not easy to pose perfectly still in such a chilly day!
    It was a very successful result in my opinion, the black and white gave just the right atmosphere with a smooth touch of wild hair dancing in the wind.
    With the video I made a small video with some shots of that day.

    Hey there guys, I just saw this and I just had to share this so badly!
    Marina Abramovic, born in November 30th in 1946, in Belgrado, Sérvia, is one hell of an artist who started her career back in the 70's. Being active for over 3 decades, Marina calls herself "the grandmother of performing arts". Abramovic's work explores the relationship between the artist and the audience, the limits of the human body and the mind capabilities.
    "In the 70's, Marina Abramovic lived an intense love story with Ulay. For five years they lived in a van making performences. When they felt the relationship wasn't worth anymore, they decided to walk all along China's big wall to have once last hug and to never see each other again. 23 years later, NY's MoMA dedicated retrospective to her work, where Marina would share one minute of silence with every stranger that would sit in front of her. Ulay got there without her knowing, and this is how it went." Maeve Jinkings.
    Well, Jinkings said everything. So we might as well shut up and let the images speak for us.
    It was a real intense moment in my opinion, and the proof that sometimes a simple eye contact with someone we have a past with is worth more than a thousand conversations at once. May my tears speak for this moment. Love itself ladies and gentleman.

    So guys, this was my latest photo shoot, starring me and my baby bald rat.
    I called him Dave Mustaine, cause honestly, the first thing that came to my had was Megatdeth's lead singer, Dave, only cause he looks so much like a damn rat.
    Oh well, as weird as this may seem, the rat looked perfect in every single shot. You know when they say "the pet is just like the owner"? The truth is, I had to feel a connection with the animal before I took it home (which btw was a gift from an amazing friend), once I held him I knew he was not just a rat, and the thing is, I can carry him everywhere I feel that he's safe with me, and I feel like I don't need to be alarmed. I mean, my actual pet that in fact is just like me is my dog, that's where you can actually apply that saying about the pet and the owner, but what I mean is I can feel confortable with the rat walking all over without being scared of losing him or something.
    The thing is, the pictures turned out real great, and I got lucky for not having Dave shitting on my head (how hilarious would it be to say "Dave Mustaine took a shit on my head"?)
    Rock on!

    Dear rockers, this post is dedicated to Sky Ferreira's amazing shots for Yves Saint Laurent's 2013 pre-fall.
    The latest generation pop sensation Sky Ferreira is now seen through Hedi Slimane's lens, one of my favourite photographers ever! His black and white signature is once again shown, this time on this rebel reckless angel. This beautiful portuguese and brazilian descendent was caught in the most natural tones and shades of a deep black and white with almost no grey shades, and a soft saturated color portrait held by a smooth red lipstick.
    Between all the 21 shots, it was hard to pick only just a few. These 6 are the best ones in my opinion, and may I say, this brings me some inspirantion.

    Dear rockers, this was my latest outfit.
    This post is dedicated to my Valentine's Day gift my boyfriend gave me! He completely lost his mind, and gave me original a pair of 10 eye black leather Steel boots!
    I've actually been in love with 'em for quite a long while, their shape is bigger than traditional boots, the sole is higher, and the steel caps are the final touch of these beauties. The combination on the three gives them a grotesque and agressive look, which I love and fits perfectly with my style.
    With these new acquisitions, I used my black skinny jeans, my Metallica I'm Watching You shirt, and my leather jacket under my ripped denim vest, with the same silver accessories.

    Dear rockers, this was my latest outfit.
    It's a pretty simple combination. The game here is between the green/gray/brown camouflage pattern in the jeans with the bleached denim tones of the jacket. With them there's a Slayer Official Merchandise Tshirt and with black suede double sole creepers.
    I love to put these jeans with this jacket together, gives it a heavy but vintage essence.

Tshirt: Slayer Official Merchandise
Jacket: Lee Denim
Jeans: Zara
Creepers: Underground Shoes

    Dear rockers, this is the simplest black, white & denim outfit
    The main piece is the Led Zeppelin Official Merchandise T-shirt, with black skinny jeans with my old silver chains, black leather Dr Martens, and my gorgeous ripped vintage denim vest.
    This outfit reminds me a lot of all of those pictures from the 90's, so I tried to do those simliar effects for my pictures. Of course it ain't the same, nothing can replace that old quality from those wonderful vintage cameras.

    Dear rockers, this was my latest outfit.
    I don't usually wear shorts, these are the ones I love the most. I wore them with some black glass tights.
    Again, the rule is black on black. Black shorts, black tights, black creepers and black shirt. The main piece of this outfit is the Ramones t-shirt, even though hipsters made it too "mainstream", I love 'em and I'll keep wearing this shirt 'cause I'm a fan. To gather the shirt, I wore an 80's Lee denim jacket my aunt gave me.
