От Flare Catcher до La foi en vous.

От далечния февруарски ден, в който създадох Flare catcher изминаха цели шест месеца... До днес. 31 Юли 2012 година. Краят на един месец и началото на един нов - стар блог. От днес Flare catcher - английският блог на една българка се преражда в La foi en vous - българският блог с френско заглавие. Ще попитате защо? Защото освен вътрешният ми глас, милион други неща ми подсказваха, че трябва да променя блога си. Не само заради оскъдния брой последователи, които получавам като английски блог и далеч по-големите възможности за реклама в българските блогосфери... Не само заради съветите на всички блогъри или администратори, които получих в последните месеци да превеждам блога на български... Не само заради лекотата на изразяване от майчиния език (макар че мисля, че английския ми е като втори роден език и също толкова лесно боравя с него, но все пак не е майчиния ми език)... Ами главно заради достъпността. Защото колкото и да не ми се вярва има хора, които не знаят и думичка английски, които не го чувстват като втори роден език като мен, които ще изгубят поне половин час да превеждат един мой пост чрез осакатения преводач на чичко Google, или ще го сметнат за твърде сложно и разточително и ще се откажат още на първото изречение... Заради всички тези хора и не само (все пак всеки би предпочел да чете на собствения си език, отколкото на чужд - колкото и да е сигурен в него). И все пак може би главно защото има много повече неща, които могат да се предложат на българската аудитория и блогосфера, отколкото на английската. Има много по-интересни неща, усвоени от чуждите блогове, които все още не са популярни или разбрани тук и които именно българските блогове налагат и трябва да продължат да налагат като начин на писане, интереси, проекти, приложения, дори outfit постове. Много блогъри прилагат различни "тактики" - някой пускат по един български и един английски пост, други превеждат всеки свой пост на български и английски. However, аз не мисля да прилагам тази практика поне за сега. (запазвам си правото да вкарвам "англицизми" в речта си, хехе) Ще пиша само на български, докато ми скимне, а и постовете ми са твърде дълги, за да ги превеждам и на втори език... От друга страна, като се замисли човек, мога да правя и по някой английски пост от време на време. Твърде много съм свикнала с този език, че да го забравя съвсем, а и мнозина знаят колко по-лесно е да се изразяваш на английски понякога! Такава съм си - променлива... Ако все пак за в бъдеще се наложи и разполагам с повече време, може би ще променя мнението си - все още нищо не се знае! Но за сега мисля, че има все нещо интересно, което мога да предложа и на българската блог "публика" :) Иска ми се блога ми да е различен, но на български. Дано успявам да синхронизирам идеите в главата си и да ги осъществявам чрез този малък мой проект, "прероденият" Flare catcher... Многобройните английски постове от него си остават тук, на ваше и мое разположение. Не мисля да трия нещо, в което съм вложила свой смисъл и което все още не е открито от достатъчно хора.
La foi (на галено) е една нова страна на старото аз. Една нова blog personality. Другата страна на един и същ човек. Сиамския близнак на един блог. Sasha Fierce на Beyoncé. ;д А какво е "la foi en vous"? Фраза, която дори Google Translate ще преведе с невероятна точност и без шикалкавени думи, но ще ви спестя ровенето в речника, драги читатели, с превода на тази простичка фраза... La foi en vous, преведено от френски означава "Faith in you" или "Вяра в себе си". Просто, ясно и много вярно. Защо точно на френски? Макар, че забелязвам, че напоследък това е доста разпространен сред българските блогъри език и вдъхновител на многобройни "Mademoiselle" - ки, не се дължи на това, че имам някаква страст към него или го смятам за възвишен, аз съм човек на твърдите езици, (затова обожавам немския). Дължи се единствено и само на вдъхновителния Tumblr блог на една от членките на любимата ми (electro pop) банда, наречен Foi en Dieu - от френски "Вяра в Бог", който ме вдъхнови за моето ново заглавие. След многобройни чудения какво означава тази фраза, най-сетне успях да я добера до речника и узнах! И тъй като не се считам за религиозен човек и не бих свързала блога си с вяра в Бог или някое божество, след часове на размисли как точно да нарека новия си "проект", реших да потърся френския превод на моя девиз - "Вярвай в себе си", перифразиран той ме изненада с благозвучното La foi en vous. Може би по намеса на някаква съдба, само това име се оказа свободно. И така се роди един нов български блог...

 Един блог за хората, които вярват в себе си.

THE ILLUMINATI CASE

July 20, 2012

So, yesterday, while I was searching around youtube pages looking for some Lana Del Rey songs, (yeah, it was one of my ‘Lana Del Rey moods’ again) I came upon a very interesting video, which caught my eye and became a main topic of a long night discussion with a friend. The video happened to be quite interesting to my conscience, mainly because of it’s title – “Lana Del Rey – the latest Illuminati puppet” and was about a bit longer then a minute, containing rumors about Lana being some kind of a slave, or only a small part in the big system of Illuminati, controlling the world, being told stuff about how in the near past she was just a girl, singing in local bars to make some money but after being trough a dramatic one night change, and a plastic surgery immediately after that became world known and billionaire famous. Also how she uses some Illuminati and even satanic symbols in her photo shoots and videos like a cross placed on her forehead on a photo, or hiding one eye with her hand for a second and/also for a second/ raising her hand with three fingers up in “Born to die” video, which apparently is some kind of a Satan worship and will either drive society to a mass murder or to excepting a new world order, influenced by her songs, videos and choreography. I’ve asked my friend about the “Illuminati” and she actually told me she watched some documentary on the topic and knows some things about this secret society. The Illuminati (plural of Latin illuminatus, "enlightened") is a name given to several groups, both real (historical) and fictitious. Historically the name refers to the Bavarian Illuminati, an Enlightenment-era secret society founded on May 1, 1776. In more modern contexts the name refers to a purported conspiratorial organization which is alleged to mastermind events and control world affairs through governments and corporations to establish a New World Order. – Wikipedia says. I was a bit shocked, I must admit. Blame me on it, I actually believe in the whole Illuminati society and that there are some secret organizations, who want to keep it safe and set new world order, that’s proven long ago and I believe it, tho I’m trying to keep it neutral I’m kinda more against the whole thing, cuz it sounds quite evil and unhealthy. Still, I find the whole Lana being an Illuminati puppet a bit ridiculous and untrue. And it’s not because I’m such a fan of her, yes, I like her and most of her songs /haven’t heard them all/ but I don’t think that she personally has proven of being a part of all this Illuminati thing by getting famous quickly based on her image or by hiding one eye with her hair or hand for a second on a video. It sound quite funny itself, however even if she was in such a thing I don’t think those things prove it anyhow. Most of the youtube comments below the video were negative and disbelieving and I even found an interesting comment, which was reading my thoughts exactly. It said “I laughed when I saw this. The Illuminati are a 'secret' organization. Secret organizations tend not to leave clues to get them noticed because otherwise, they would no longer be secret. This is all bullshit about Lana.” Pretty obvious, ha? If Illuminati’s the biggest and most influential secret society, capable of really everything then how will they leave all of those youtube videos and proofs behind, exposing themselves in front of the planet and risking it all by leaving people follow their steps? After all, if the Illuminati were powerful enough to rule the whole world, they will be also powerful to delete some “disturbing” internet videos like this one and not risk being exposed, right? I must say I have no idea what the whole thing about gaining a new world order has to do with faiths and beliefs in God and Satan and what’s the whole role of the satanic symbols in here, which honestly have nothing in common with the Illuminati symbols, but whatever lets leave them apart. It just seems that when society gets a trend topic bugging it’s mind, it gets to absolutely unknown directions and distractions of it… I’m personally not religious by any kind, and apart from that I really think it’s not Satanic symbols, witch crafting, worships and ancient stories we’re talking about when it comes to this secret society. Personally by now I can claim, Lana Del Rey haven’t influenced me bad by any kind or brainwashed me with her songs. She didn’t made me kill myself, or have sex on top of a car, or smoke weed, or dye my hair red, or put botox on my lips, or drink whiskey, or be a stripper, or dress like her, act like her, tame a tiger or even hit someone in the back of the head with a gun or whatever. I didn’t even bought her album/yeah I’m that poor to download music from the internet/! I really like most of her songs, her rhythm, her lyrics, her voice, find her videos interesting and even like her appearance, but that’s all. I do really think there’s something really magnetic about her that driven many people crazy over her and made thousands of people like her quickly and buy her music, but I guess it’s just a charm. It’s not a part of some satanic ritual over people or a plan for a new world order. I still know many people, who don’t like her at all, so it’s not like the whole planet loves her… I don’t really feel controlled by her in any way, I just like her like an artist. Aside from that, the whole Lana topic went way too far and led to a bigger Illuminati topic I found myself all caught in… It was all way too interesting to be left behind by me, so I even decided to blog about it and “introduce” you to the whole thing. 

I don’t want to claim any believing or whatever with this post, it’s just my personal opinion and information I’ve read. 

Tiny inspiration dose : The love list

July 18, 2012

 1. Art // This awsome piece by Chase Kunz totally caught my eye once I stumbled upon it, because you know I have a deep love for skulls and I loved the waves idea! What other thing can we possibly think of on a breezy summer day, than the sea /or the ocean/?

2. Music // A friend of mine introduced me to this song. It's "Youth" by Daughter, I find her voice and the lyrics really soft and deep, at the same time like the disturbing drums as well.

 3. Interior // This Morrocan style bedroom by Maine design (I recently found on Pinterest) with custom printed Brunschwig Bombay wallpaper immediately got me with it’s prints and colors, Indian style! Don’t you love the lamp above the bed?

 4. Food // Now this Moist Chocolate Cake looks just YUM! I'm seriously considering on baking my first cake and tought about trying Earl Gray tea cake, coz it's pretty easy and it seems delicious, but now I saw this one and it may get on my cooking list as well... Check out the recipe


 5. Style // It's clear that floral motives were the top trend this year, but once they're mixed with a lot of colors and look like splashed paint as well, they really got it! Just like this pretty /unknown brand/ skirt I found on Pinterest again.

6. Photography // As a lover of black & white photography I couldn't help it but be impressed by this old Vintage Vogue photo from an unknown photographer... (also found on Pinterest) Look at the pup! 

Weekend

July 17, 2012


Now I realize it's been almost a month since I last blogged! Then I realize how much I actually miss blogging and don't know what exactly to blog about at the same time... It's just that I have too many ideas on how to make the blog a worthy one or what posts exactly to write and I end up being uncreative and mad it won't work...  At the same time I suck at design ideas, because I'm looking at a bunch of other great blogs and I happen to like simple designs a lot, tho sometimes I fall in love with the ornate, colorful ones and I can't figure out what will fit my blog best, but as you see I decided to go with the simple one and made the new blog design as simple as possible, counting on the lots of colorful photos to interleave it. From now on I'll try to use all of the other great blogs I read as an inspiration and give my best post ideas a shot, so I hope it'll all work !
For those long weeks I gave myself a "blogging break" so many things happened to me, you can't even imagine! /I'll tell more about it all in my next posts/ I  finally finished my two week school accounting practice, went to a long vacation on both mountains and sea shore, got over some old "freindships" and started some new ones, got some new habbits, been trough some tough times and changes and even set a whole new beginning in my life... So let's just say those 3 weeks were quite vortex for me.

That's why I decided to finish off the weekend with a glass of cold strawberry champagne, nice new music, some home-made salty crackers and bunch of summer stories to tell you... And what better way?
