2014-blog

Remember, when I said that I will rock in 2014? That this will be a great year of changes, new adventures, success, new me? I don’t know if it’s fate or hard work, but it did happen. I actually made more dreams come true in one year than in several years. I am happy (which is a feeling I loose very often), still lost, but happy. I wanted to write down everything I remember about this year, because I frankly forget so much of my past! And while I was making this note I recalled so many details that I would definitely loose in depths of my mind. Thanks to this post they will be still alive.

This is my memoir of 2014. Make yourself a cup of coffee (or tea) and go through all these amazing days again with me.

lost in translation

Dlaczego zmiany? Bo zmiany to kierunek w stronę rozwoju, spełnienia, niesłabnącej ekscytacji. Nie wystarcza mi już tylko publikowanie zdjęć i krótkich wpisów. Potrzebuję mówić o tym co myślę, opisywać co widzę, zdradzać o czym marzę, chwalić się, dzielić, narzekać, pytać i odpowiadać. Odkąd pamiętam uwielbiam pisać (choć nigdy nie uważałam, że robię to bardzo dobrze). Jestem też samozwańczym psychologiem, detektywem, filozofem. Kombinacja tych zainteresowań spowodowała, że już od podstawówki byłam ‘inna’. Za dużo myślałam, za dużo kombinowałam. Analiza była pod nosem, a ja zawsze szukałam jej głębiej. Dlatego na lekcjach j. polskiego przestałam chętnie udzielać odpowiedzi, bo nauczycielom nigdy nie odpowiadała moja odpowiedź – nie była ‘zgodna z kluczem’. Próbowałam dać upust swoim przemyśleniom na blogach, ale żaden z nich nie przetrwał do dziś. Teraz będzie inaczej. Jak zapewniałam – kontynuuję przebojowy rok.
Dlaczegolost in translation‘? Bo jak już Wam wyjawiłam (tu) jestem wiecznie zagubiona, w mojej głowie kłębią się dziesiątki dylematów, pytań i odpowiedzi z trzykropkiem. W zasadzie całe moje życie definiuje zagubienie. Ale nie w negatywnym sensie tylko motywującym. Samotność w tłumie, niewiedza i ciekawość, nieodgadnione uczucia, huśtawki emocjonalne – to wszystko zachęciło mnie do poszukiwania nowego, ekscytującego życia i poznawania siebie. Lost in translation to również tytuł filmu z mojej półki pt. ‘klasyki’. Napisany i wyreżyserowany przez Sofię Coppolę, zagrany przez przepiękną i jeszcze wtedy naturalną Scarlett Johansson oraz zabawnego Billa Murraya. To od imienia głównej bohaterki pochodzi pierwszy człon mojej marki. Nie da się ukryć, że kiedyś utożsamiałam się z nią (film obejrzałam po raz pierwszy 10 lat temu), a dziś czuję ogromny sentyment do tej historii i postaci. Wciąż jestem tak samo zagubiona, ale nauczyłam się słuchać siebie i otwierać na radykalne zmiany. To chyba nazywa się dojrzałość, prawda?
Mam nadzieję, że nie śmierdzi to nudą. I że wrócicie tu po więcej :)

Why change? Because changes point toward development, fulfillment, undying excitement. Publishing photos and short posts are not enough any more. I need to tell what I’m thinking about, describe what I see, show what I dream about, vaunt, share, complain, ask and answer. I’ve loved writing since I can remember (but I never though I was very good at it). I am also a self-styled psychologist, detective, philosopher. All these interests combined made me ‘different’ from the primary school times. I was over-thinking, analyzing too much. The answer was just under my nose, but I always searched deeper. I stopped raising my hand at Polish classes, because teachers never liked my opinion – it wasn’t ‘matching the key’. I tried to write about my thoughts on a few blogs, but they didn’t last long. It’s going to be different now. As I promised – I’m continuing the ‘go-ahead’ year.
Whylost in translation‘? Because I am always lost, dozens of dilemmas, questions and answers are swirling in my head. Basically my whole life is defined by this feeling. Not in a negative but motivating way. Loneliness in the crowd, incomprehension and curiosity, undefined feelings and emotional yo-yo – all this made me search for a new, exciting life and know myself better. Lost in translation is also a movie from my ‘classics’ shelf. Written and directed by Sofia Coppola, played by amazingly beautiful and natural (then) Scarlett Johansson and hilarious Bill Murray. The name of the main female character inspired my brands name. I won’t lie, I was identifying myself with her then (I was the movie 10 years ago for the first time), and today I feel sentimental about this story and figures. I am still a lost as I was back then, but I’ve learned to listen to myself and be open to radical changes. I guess it’s called maturity, right?
I hope I didn’t bore you to death. And that you’ll come back for more :)

It’s been 4 years since my first post here! ♥ I was browsing old photos and I gotta tell you that my style and taste has changed so much. I used to wear lots of colors and girly clothes, now I’m totally into simplicity. I wonder if it’s a good change or a bad one. What do you think? :)
PS. I’m a cat ^^

Minęły już 4 lata odkąd powstał pierwszy wpis na blogu! ♥ Przeglądałam stare zdjęcia i muszę przyznać, że mój styl i gust mocno zmieniły się. Lubiłam kolory, dziewczęce kroje a teraz jestem za totalną prostotą. Zastanawiam się czy to dobra czy zła zmiana. Co sądzicie? :)
PS. Jestem kotem ^^

So what actually is this place?

16 December 2009

This is my new idea, kind of… a dream coming true.

Fashion industry is the closest thing to me. I grew up in a small town in Poland, close to the capital. One of my parents’ business was clothing production for the local market. It started when I was born (’89, the end of communism), so I was growing up in textile shops, secondhand stores, those old needle-women’s houses and parent’s workshop. I was reading “Burda”, pseudo-fashion magazine for designers. I learned how to cut and sew materials. Soon I started designing my own clothes. I always had my own, unique style that nobody in this small town could ever understand. People at school called me ‘scarecrow’ and ‘UFO’, teachers were pointing my style out, although I wasn’t dirty or wearing cosmic clothes. They just weren’t aware of those possibilities that fashion brings. Secondhand stores became my fascination, I was getting back home with bags full of ‘useless’ treasures. I held them till 2006 when my first crazy business concept came to life. I have opened an online store with secondhand clothes with a friend. Today it’s run by this friend of mine, who turned out to be untruthful. But I don’t regret leaving it. I’ve got maaaany more dreams to fulfill :)

Today I’m running my own advertising, photography and modeling agency. I am engaged to the great man. I am going to built a beautifull home. But there just one thing that I can’t fully explore – my fashion fascination. I always wanted to be a model, designer, journalist, stylist, photographer and trend-setter. I know what I want to wear, but I just can’t be true and constant with that. I love fashion that’s connected to rock. Glam rock, moth, 80’s style. I am so delighted that 2009 trends are so close to my image! But there are still two problems – I love also pin-up, vintage, rustic, a little sporty also romantic and chic style. The result is a closet full of unsuitable clothes. The next issue is that I usually end up sitting by my computer in jeans, random blouse and sweater ’cause it’s easy, quick and comfortable.

How to solve it? I’m going to post once a week my combinations of clothes, accessories and shoes, my own designs and photos of people whose style I admire. I am going to show you my fashion alter ego and give myself a fashion therapy! :)

So… my name is Natalie and hope you guys will have fun here!

Cheers!
