CLARIFY YOUR MIND + "take off my bra" playlist







I was just talking with a friend now, and we realize how much effort and energy we put on party, drinks and superficial stuff. You just realize that when you stop for a few days with this crazy lifestyle and think, oh man, how good is just "think".
 So, this week we will put all our energy and effort on our work, healthy stuff, arts,music etc.. More than never, i can say. 
 I don't know about you, but i really believe: our self steam just really get better, not using a FAB outfit, getting a new man or changing our hairstyle. It's totally about inspiration. When you creat or do exactly what you love, with love, you will feel fucking awesome. Because you feel so YOU, and this is so pure and incredible.
 So i'm excited to write some no sense shit and take lots of weird photos. You should think what you love to do, listen, wear and be 100% you the next 5 days, and see whats happen. Trust me, PURE GOLD!

Come on, you are not here to be average, you are here to be AWESOME!!
I was thinking about start tomorrow with a 3K run at 6:30. Let's see if i will wake up.

What about you, what you will change? Some good music can help you, but i need to WARN you about this playlist, you can put your best lingerie, high heels, and enjoy yourself in front of mirror, orrrrrrrrrrrr you can try this tracks with someone else (perfect for that, made for that), sexy sexy sexy

Anyway, don't worry, have fun and don't cheat yourself.


PS:
Oh. I'm really into my tumblr the last weeks. Lots of images and tracks! (random stuff). But if you don't have a open mind, better just stay around here.

I'ts called love, and is so uncool


But is the only thing that's worth living for.




I must say: the last year Was totally mess. My mom dies last october and since then i Was acting kind of strange with myself and totally offline from world. I Was living, going out, moving from another country and "having fun".  But the last weeks i just realize i'm start to waking up, slowly, just now. And for the first time since all that sad stuff happend, i'm happy.
The thing is, how difficult is realize you are not 100%? How long you take to fix your heart  and mind?
I Was talking with some friends last night, girls night, and is fucking absurd how crazy we are when we start date someone. How much expectations women put on a casual kiss. Freaky, really.  And when sex are involved, we fake we are not surprise about the last day call never happend. Come on, 2014 and this bullshit still on???  You can say  you are not "that type" but even if you are not a casual dates addicted a guy can fuck you and disappear , so its not your problem exactly.
I Was kind of involved with a guy, not my type, don't know whats happend to be honest. Totally cute, but the opposit of my type you know? He is young and we have very different lifestyles. But he does the magic. The magic is: you are not into a guy but you Was bored so, sometimes you go out with him, but after a few times, he start to disappear and don't give you much attention. You start to Get crazy because you even Was into him. And the game starts....
After his magic, ye, i Get crazy obssessed. Any of my friends Was believing whats going on, i just became a insecure and totally annoying woman. And trust me, i never give a fuck about this type of thing, so Was a New thing going on.
After exactly 7 miserable days without a "after sex call" and overthinking about this every single day i take a cold shower and realize how idiot Was my behavior , and for the first time i understand my female friends complaining about and had a little of compassion,
What i discover in my girly bored days: at first, if you want someone, you need to play. Unfortunatly . Men are fucking rats. I'm sorry guys, but we need to be honest. When a girl are too much into you, is boring.
After  realize this i just loose my interest for him. I just feel lazy to do all the stuff and act bla blá blá blaaaaaa szzZzZZzz.
Just one lucid though and whats happen? He appear! Better then never.
So now, i'm healthy and having fun, and if the good sex stay, good, if don't... Well if don't we always have ex boyfriends.

Kidding.  Anyway, you need to treat your love life kind of on background. Because don't depends only for you, so have huge changes to don't work well. We are Successfull girls, controling our own life. If work well, amazing, super hot. If don't, you have your work, your friends and you hot body to explore. Put all the love on things you know will make you feel good. Don't loose your time hottie! Rule the world and stay RAD! AS IF!



Love you gals,

You are good enough - Get the right bananas - FOR MY GIRLS



I just receive two emails today and was pretty sad. The first one was a guy calling me names and saying terrible things. I think probably is someone who i match on tinder but never go out with. I have this problem, i wish to go for a date but a few hours before i just overthink and cancel. I know is super annoying, i understand. But i don't have enough balls or patience at the moment. And i was very busy organizing my life here and writing all the time. 
The first thing you do when someone say bad things about you, probably is feel sad, before think if this are true or not you feel sad, maybe because is very frustrating someone "anonymous" who you probably don't even know in real life stop his life to write bad things to you. I really don't get that. I feel in the high school when this type of thing happen. The thing is, how we should deal with this? Why women always belive in this type of bullshit? 
The second email was a girl talking about her tinder dates, she had 18 dates just on the last month. So brave. btw we love her. The fact is, when she said "don't work, i'm sorry" for all the guys, 12 just call her a bitch or something like that. Pretending don't give a fuck and acting in a not respectfull way.
How unfair is this? This is so primitive, this guys look likes monkeys. Maybe is better date monkeys. They can offer you the right bananas.
  Why most of people need to make the other feel bad when the things are not the way they plan? Is easier make bad choises. Because when you do the right thing, the feeling of "care" come with. And is not exactly cool. When you start care with each others is impossible take it back. When you start to believe everyone have something good is impossibl to take back. Can be naive? Maybe, but is real. Sarcarm is totally more charming, sexy and misterious, but don't "darling" me you know? Always sound fake. 
The thing is, we women need to be more true with ourselves. You diserve what you think is good for you and what you put some effort in. Start to be the woman you wish to be. And what type of guy this woman, if she need one(maybe don't) want to have? We are so young, and so cool, that's no point to worry about this type of "problem". So relax, and if you think the bad things is  true, talk with someone who really know you well, they will tell you the truth and probably if they agree with the stranger will warn you about. Probably you don't have nothing to worry. Be faithfull with yourself. Is pretty cliche but kind of hard to put this on practice. We are always changing our plans if "that" guy call us. How silly and dumb is that? So don't be so available if you don't feel is fair with yourself. Do your thing,  and if someone really like you, he will try all the always to be with you somehow. So don't worry, will happen. If you are sure about who you are, everything will be amazing. Just need time alone and some self exploration (ok this sound naughty).
Don't stay too much time on the BHH(Black Hole Hostel), is cheap but not confortable. If you are more then one week you need to go out and need to see more things. And be there just because the guy you like pass around sometimes, is totally unfair. So go out. Run around. The reviews on trip advisor abou BHH are sad, just saying. You can stay one, two days be miserable and that's enough. REFRESH! Pussy power biatches.


Love you,
C.

ABOUT: TINDER DATES

(So at first i need to say, my english can be pretty bad sometimes. But i will not write in portuguese anymore because, well,  im living in London, and im able to learn witht my mistakes, so please you are more than welcome to correct me. )

YOU NEED THIS MUSIC TO READ MY STORY.




Guys... ye, i know what are you thinking.. Really, Tinder as a subject? Thats right?
YES. Yes because here in London, Tinder works in a totally different way. Can i be honest? I have exactly 284 guys waiting for my answer or for i just say something. Thats freaky insane. I'm too full of myself? Not exactly. I will clarify your mind.

When i was in London last summer tinder wasn't borned yet. The guys here will not approach you in the nightclubs, gym, streets or pubs. No.. pretty difficult. But now, looks like a new era. THE TINDER ERA. So cyber, so 2014. I'm feeling so trendy.


After you push right side on tinder, you just wait a few minutes, and yes, he will not just say hello and how are you, but he probably will ask for you " lets go out for a drink tonight". I just felt scared, how easily this guys go out for a drink with strangers. The weird part is, they are incredible good looking (my selection, sure). 
I think on tinder you feel confident because, when you approach a girl or a guy in a club you are totally out of your confort zone, because maybe she don't like you. And on tinder you already have the approval so, pretty easy. I founded good ones there, but i'm not sure about go for a tinder date. Maybe i should go out with these 284, ops 285 now, sorry, and see how this works. I can, acctually try different characters on this dates. Or this is messing around with this lovely tinder guys maybe? Ok, i will not be mean. I can pick five and go out and see whats happen maybe. My way to do this is very simple. 

" - Hey tinder guy number 34, i'm going have some drinks tonight at _______ with friends, you should come with your friends"

Too cold? Too safe? Probably for me is the only way. I'm afraid. Serial Killer is not a trendy anymore so, yes, is dangerous.  I'm up to that. I will pick some different styles, from different areas, and if you have some suggestion, like how i should choose, or maybe suggest "Carol wear different wigs on dates",  i'm open to listen. 

Gramma, don't be afraid, i'm ok here and enjoying London. 
ITS RAINY MEN.

Fun Stuff Without Meaning

Why God



When did I realize I was God? Well, I was praying and I suddenly realized I was talking to myself. I'm not trying to be atheist or something. I just think your mind can change everything. And if you want to be anything, you will. Stop praying and start to live your dream. Fuck off the rest or what people think. Be gentle and and greatfull with the others, even with the bad ones. Just don't let them bring you down, trust in yourself and embrace your weirdness! Your life your rules! (remember: you don't need to be a bossy fucking rude bitch to have what you want. Spreding love is the hottest way).

LOVE,
C

Natural






As Buddha tries to teach us how to understand death, we have to understand when a cycle ends. Without anger or spirit loss, but with love, affection and patience to live free from fondness.

Loff Week

This title looks pretentious. Not the intention. I'm kinda faar from here because i was staying a few weeks in the black hole hostel, but now im totally fine, because if you are on the BHH is because you need see more things. So i went to the beach a few days and now i'm feeling better. I spent my April watching docs and weird movies, reading weird stuff too, so sometimes this can messy your brain. But here what i'm into it the last days with my opinion










Now what i listened the last weeks, hot stuff:

Interview - Anne Podlecki


Eu conheci a Anne a uns 10 anos atrás quando nós tínhamos uma percepção rebelde sobre a vida e achávamos que eramos anarquistas. Não que isso tenha mudado, mas pelo menos hoje sabemos que apesar da vontade não somos anarquistas. A Anne é fotografa já a alguns anos mas de uns meses pra que ela vem se encontrado e se sentindo mais a vontade e verdadeira com os clicks que tem feito. Mas ninguém melhor que ela para falar sobre isso.



 C.L: Oi Anne, sabe que eu tenho uma curiosidade quanto a fotógrafos, muitas das fotos que fazem sucesso são aquele style velho mendigo em preto e branco, crianças da Etiópia passando fome com uma super edição, órfãos no parquinho em sépia. Cara isso me da um bode sem fim, não tiro a beleza de algumas delas de uma forma técnica mas pra mim é uma hipocrisia desnecessária. Eu estou sendo ignorante? Qual sua opinião?
A.P: Oi Carol! Então, eu acho que o documental e o fotojornalismo são, sem dúvidas, as vertentes mais importantes da fotografia, ambos tem como função mostrar pra gente, por exemplo, que mora em uma cidadezinha no sul da Brasil o que tá acontecendo do outro lado do mundo de uma maneira visual, de forma que a gente pode se identificar e se convencer de que aquilo é real. Eu admiro muito quem faz isso, especialmente em lugares nada bonitos ou seguros. Mas realmente, eu dispensaria a edição forçada de fotos assim porque fica contraditório né? Acho que a foto por si já é forte o suficiente, não precisa de um efeito dramático em cima.
C.L: E o tipo de foto que você faz hoje em dia, o que você busca com elas? Qual o ponto de partida da inspiração?
A.P: Eu sempre fotografei gente, sempre gostei de fazer retratos, documentar pessoas. Agora eu estou focando em fotografias mais cruas, retratos bem fiéis, então tirei a roupa e a maquiagem das pessoas e tento retratar elas da maneira mais natural possível e nos meus projetos pessoais, estou focando bastante em tentar criar uma sintonia entre o corpo do fotografado e o cenário. Concentrar nas formas e partes do corpo, tirando qualquer sexualidade da fotografia. Eu acho que eu ainda estou engatinhando, eu sempre acho que eu ainda to engatinhando, então não sei falar muito sobre o que eu fotografo, mas é sempre gente, e ultimamente tenho brincado bastante com formas do corpo.
C.L: Você acabou de se mudar para os Estados Unidos, você acredita que o cenário de fotografia por aí é mais interessante? Por que todo mundo legal sai do Brasil? 
A.P: Então Carol, eu acho que o problema é Curitiba, não o Brasil. Claro, o Brasil (não me leve a mal, eu amo o Brasil, samba, feijoada e tudo isso) é um país complicado pra sobreviver de qualquer arte porque o brasileiro adora arte, mas não gosta muito de aplicar dinheiro nisso. Mas o problema maior, no meu caso, é que Curitiba é uma cidade muito tradicional. Eu tinha bastante dificuldade de encontrar gente pra posar pra mim, porque o nu não é bem visto lá, não me leve a mal, eu tive modelos extraordinárias que confiaram no meu trabalho antes mesmo de eu ter qualquer idéia do que eu estava fazendo. Mas no geral é uma cidade complicada quando se quer sair da caixinha. Mostrar seios em Curitiba é uma coisa que causa NERVOSISMO nas pessoas que vêem as fotos, juro! Eu vim pros Estados Unidos pra estudar, em uma escola em San Francisco fundada pelo Ansel Adams (que é o meu fotógrafo favorito) e que ainda se baseia na fotografia analógica, o que é incrível pros dias de hoje né? E claro, o pessoal de SF é super pelado! Então espero produzir bastante enquanto estou aqui, ter menos "pudor" do que eu tinha que ter no Brasil, haha. E sim, o cenário da fotografia aqui é bem interessante, eu já conheci muitos fotógrafos com visões muito loucas e trabalhos muito diferentes, com certeza aqui a diversidade de artistas é infinita e ninguém tem medo de mostrar seu lado B em suas criações, pessoal não tem vergonha nenhuma, o que é lindo.


 C.L: Você acha que ao decorrer de um processo criativo e estudo a pessoa fica cada vez mais politizada e para de romantizar a sua própria arte?
A.P: Eu acho que evitar a "bitolação" da própria arte é um exercício diário Carol. Eu mesma, por exemplo, tive um hiato bem grande na fotografia, em 2012 e 2013 eu só trabalhei com campanhas e fotos institucionais, porque estava juntando dinheiro pra viajar e não recusava trabalho nenhum. Acabei fazendo muita foto que não tem nada a ver comigo e deixei de lado a prática de fotografar por prazer, de sair por aí com a câmera, e a mágica morreu, desanimei, minha câmera tava juntando pó. Foi só quando eu resolvi tirar minha analógica do armário que as coisas voltaram a caminhar. Eu acho que isso é a coisa mais importante que um fotógrafo pode fazer pra se manter fiel a sua visão, é lembrar de brincar, de ir pra rua com a câmera, é experimentar técnicas novas. Se fotografa com digital, experimenta fotografar com filme, se fotografa com filme, experimenta com a digital, ou com uma descartável (que também é muito legal). Se mantenha jovem na sua arte, lembre que apesar de ela ser seu ganha pão, ela continua sendo a maneira que você tem de expor sua opinião pro mundo, continua sendo a sua voz. Esquece o photoshop um pouco, experimenta novos ângulos, experimenta uma fotografia mais crua. Eu sempre acreditei que em qualquer área da nossa vida, o extraordinário acontece quando a gente sai da nossa zona de conforto, e isso vale pra qualquer artista, qualquer pessoa que de alguma forma emprega sua visão pessoal em criações de qualquer tipo. Fazer o que a gente ama E ganhar dinheiro é uma coisa incrível, mas é importante se reinventar, se manter com sede, continuar aprendendo, tentando, experimentando, não cair dentro daquela caixinha do politicamente correto, do "isso funciona, então é só isso que eu faço". E o mais importante, na minha opinião: estudar bastante, entender o por que de todas as regras técnicas da fotografia, MAS, fazer isso por um só motivo: quanto mais você entende de regras, com mais audácia você pode quebrar elas. 
C.L: Sei também que você já estudou moda, qual sua relação e opinião quanto a isso? Digo "isso" porque por aqui nós não acreditamos mais nessa balela.
A.P: Olha Carol, eu cheguei a estudar moda mas vi no começo que não era pra mim. Eu não consigo lidar com cores e estampas, são coisas que incomodam meu olho desde criança, tanto na rua, na vida quanto nas roupas que eu uso ou nas roupas que eu fotografo. Não me leve a mal, eu adoro roupas, tenho muitas amigas que trabalham na indústria e acho um processo lindo. Mas no meu trabalho, o que importa é a maneira como a roupa interage com o corpo de quem eu to fotografando e com o cenário do quadro, e meu gosto pessoal é bem orgânico. Eu não sou qualificada pra opinar em moda, pra mim e pro meu trabalho, um lençol branco funciona melhor do que qualquer Valentino.
C.L: Tem algum projeto que você pira em fazer e ainda não foi realizado? Pode contar pra gente?
A.P: Sim! Eu quero fazer um coletânea de nus masculinos logo. Tenho trabalhado bastante com nu feminino mas nunca fiz um masculino. A idéia é fazer um retrato dos homens com quem eu me envolver nos próximos dois anos, amigos, colegas de trabalho, namorados, etc. A fotografia pra mim tem muito disso, de recordação, muito do que eu fotografo é porque eu não quero esquecer aquele momento, ou aquela pessoa, ou aquele lugar. E eu gosto de corpo, gosto de cheiro, gosto de gente, sempre gostei de gente, então a idéia é fazer um diário mesmo, documentando os homens que de alguma forma passarem na minha vida. Esse projeto já tá no papel faz um tempo, mas eu acho que a mágica do nu vem de um lugar zero sexual, pra mim o nu perfeito é quando o fotógrafo (ou pintor, ilustrador, etc) consegue retratar um corpo como um objeto de trabalho, sem qualquer conotação sexual envolvida. Por isso eu nunca comecei na prática com essas fotografias, eu acho que ainda não estou em um nível de maturidade fotográfica onde eu consigo ver homens pelados da mesma maneira que eu vejo um fogão. Mas estou trabalhando nisso (haha), e se tudo der certo em um ano vou estar te mandando essas fotos prontas. Obrigada Carol, admiro muito seu trabalho e fiquei super feliz com o convite.
