Interview | Isabella Lipuma

She, of the pink taffeta and the dark, dark hair, the watermelon lipgloss and the crystal tattoos; a wood nymph, film camera in hand, frolicking through the concrete gardens of New York City, exploring the glittery underbelly of Los Angeles, traversing the rainy streets of London in search of art that speaks to the heart, seeking her beloved rococo treasures in the decadent corners of Versailles; with a beauty shelf that would rival any one of the features on Into the Gloss and a penchant for old Hollywood glamour, Isabella is a girl after my own dark, rainbow tinged heart.

Current Reading List

I have to tell you, I have been slacking in the reading department. Life, as it happens, has been not very pretty lately. But we are not here to talk about that.

Bali on film | Lomography Lomochrome Purple

Lomography's Lomochrome Purple has got to be one of my favourite film stocks ever. The dreamy, ethereal quality it lends to photos makes it perfect for landscape shots - especially to the places where you've escaped to. You know, those plane tickets you book on the spur of the moment, leaving the next day, no itinerary once you reach your destination, just following the wind. Really is the best way. 

Go and disappear for awhile. If you're truly lucky, it may even be with someone you love.
