Hi Loves I'm back from South America, Suriname. And in one breathe; It was amazing. Every year it gets just a little bit better and the one tops the other even more. This year I wanted to relax and get inspired on a whole new artistic level. I wanted to soak it all in and design it all out! But to do so you need to let go and just put your mind on blank for a while.. really solitude yourself. This all sounds great in theory but man thats much harder in real life. Especially when you're at your moms place and you got tons of family stopping by constantly and trips are being planned. Food Food Food every where my mind was running like crazy!
After the first week I did found some time to create and I made some shorts and a kimono which turned out pretty cool if I might see so. The DIY and outfitpost will be online soon.
But in the last week of the vacation I got the confirmation to sell at the Best Kept Secret Festival this week. So my mind started to go back to overload and jup we were at square one again.
Oh well all is good I had some Fun,Food and Laughter.
Ok Somebody could have told me it was rainy season! I was the laughingstock of the house every time I made my entrance all dressed up in my high heels.
This stream of water comes all the way from the backwoods to cool me down. The sound of the forest is restful I could sit here for hours... IF there weren't so many animals, I can feel their eyes lurking me.. I'm telling ya!
Ha my mom will kill me if she sees this! GI Jane in action to harvest some bananas for the evening dish. This is my style of living. You eat what you sow. Especially with this type of banana which is so divers, you can use all stages of ripening. In this green stage you can boile it and make little balls for soups. Yellow stage; its cooked for heri heri a dish which represents tubers like sweet potatoe and cassava, all combined with a salty fish. And in the last stage when the banana is almost overripe, the sweet banana is dipped in flour batter and then fried for bakabana which means fried banana. Hmmmm.. ok ok enough with the food.
