Splitting Image – Last Part: Red

The last parts of my short story, Splitting Image, with pictures from Marco Vinagre. As a recap: Part 1 Part 2: Purple Part 2: Black And now… Splitting Image – 2: Red I step in. Wow! It looks like I’m wearing a new dress! How magical! This one is so red and long and comfortable! 

Splitting Image – 2: Black

This is another part 2 (!) of my short story, Splitting Image. Next post will be: the last part 2 and part 3! Read the beginning here: Part 1. Part 2: Purple. Splitting Image – 2: Black I step in.  Oh, why is this tunnel so different than it had looked from outside? So much…

Splitting Image – 2: Purple

This is one of the part 2s (!) of my new short story, “Splitting Image”. You can read part 1 here. I hope you’ll like it! Splitting Image – 2: Purple I step in.  This is strange. The tunnel is much brighter than it seemed from outside. It looks very sleek, and bends so you…

Splitting Image – 1

This is an illustrated, speculative and auto-fictional, short story! I hope you’ll like it! All the pictures were taken a year ago by Marco Vinagre in Kings Cross, London but coincidentally, my hair looks nearly the same colour today 🙂 Splitting Image – 1 I put my mask on, crawl carefully through the torn, cobwebbed…

I wasn’t trying to scare anyone, but it’s true that Halloween is supposed to be a moment when the bridges between the worlds…

Redbubble prints

Do you know Redbubble? It’s a good place to look for original designs, as artists can upload their stuff and you can have them printed as posters, but also skirts or bath mats!… I looked at their FAQ before registering, they seem ethical, and the prints are of very good quality. My account there is…

Rogue And Wolf – Ambassador

So, I’m now an Ambassador for Rogue And Wolf! It’s a brand that has awesome designs, and vegan shoes! What’s not to like! It’s true that now, I’m a lot into buying less new things, and doing more second hand shopping (and also, I just have more than enough clothes in general 🙂 ) for…
