#clutter to add to our #collections

HELLO. Before anything: you may have noticed that I switched the blog's name from "Les Carousels" to "Les Superficials." I don't have much of an explanation other than that I thought Les Superficials was a much better name.

I have a passion for clutter and, well... things. I don't usually use all the little items that I pick up here and there, which is why they fall into the category of clutter... But that's all right, because it's clutter that's nice to look at! Above: greeting cards that I absolutely love, and umbrella that I'm desperate to have, a bag, a robot thingy, some thing (I don't even know what it's supposed to be) with some words I love, and another bag; this time with Snoopy (it's a classic).

remembering summer

in the second moodboard: a full photoshoot from Teen Vogue magazine, September 2014.

I'm excited for this winter, which has never happened before. I've decided to make winter (or at least September) slightly more summery than usual: florals, bright colors, etc. In any case, I made a small moodboard, remembering summer.
The second moodboard is a photoshoot from Teen Vogue serving as my most enormous inspiration this month so far, I think.

What were your inspirations this summer?
What are your inspirations  for September?

Liebster Award

Hullo everybody! Eleanor just nominated me for my first Liebster Award- so let's get started!
1. You must link back to the person who tagged you.
2. You must answer all the questions
3. You must come up with 10 questions for your nominees
4. You must tag 10 other bloggers

Eleanor's Questions + My Answers
1. When did you start blogging, and why? Well, last month. My blog still has less than fifteen posts, I think. I started blogging because of my love for "clutter-" useless but lovely notebooks, shoes, clothing, washi tape, colored pencils, etc. I think I decided to just get a place to share all my little finds. I think that over August, my blog also became something for me to share my love of photography, music, writing, books, and other things.

2. If you could meet one person, who would it be and what would you ask them? Oh, I have two: Tavi Gevinson and Sarah Jessica Parker. Both are hilarious, smart, and idols of mine. I'm not sure what I would ask them exactly...

3. One book or film that influenced your life in a major way and how? Hmmm... Eugenie Grandet or Illusions Perdu (Lost Illusions) by Honore de Balzac would be only two of those during August (I read A LOT). It's remarkable how much society and humans have not changed since the two hundred years when these books were written!

4. Where would you go in the world and what would you do there? I know this is cheating out of the question a little bit, but I'm a person with so much wanderlust... There are too many places and things I want to do in my life, that I just can't list them all here.

5. Your hopes and dreams for the next 10 years? I know this is a bit geeky, but I'd like to do something important in the scientific world, and I'd also like to write a novel someday.

6. Your dream career and your nightmare job? Dream careers: architect, scientist, writer, interior designer... something in that direction. Nightmare job: I have no idea. 

7. All time favorite album/piece of music? This is What Makes Us Girls by Lana del Rey. It doesn't get old.

8. Who/what is your biggest creative influence? Everyone and everything. I get ideas from the world, from books, magazines, etc.

9. Favorite piece of clothing ever? My black COS boots. I wear them a little too much.

10. Favorite food? Seaweed. (Roasted and salted, of course!)

My Questions
1. The beach or a tropical rainforest?
2. What's your dream career?
3. What is your favorite clothing brand/designer?
4. What is a current event/world happening/etc. that you care a lot about?
5. What is your favorite ice cream flavor?
6. What is your favorite food?
7. Science or math?
8. Writing or reading?
9. What is your dream destination?
10. Who/what inspires you?
