Is contrast the greatest teacher?

Conceptual neon artist, Olivia Steele uses neon lighting to charge the space with ironic and spiritual meaning. A native of Nashville , Tennessee and resident of London and Berlin, Steele's work ranges from small to large installations that employ the traditional commercial medium of neon glass to make intimate statements and to question modern culture. In dialogue with mediums such as facades, rivers, taxidermy and photographs she tells short stories that evoke thought while enlightening the scenery with  elaborate handwriting in neon glass.
I would love to have her art in my apartment. Actually something to invest in. Agree? xx

"Why can't life always be that easy" - kinda mood. Most dominating piece in this outfit is
with no doubt the metallic green cropped sweater from Alexander Wang featuring a ribbed crew neck, 
an oversized fit and long sleeve as any online store would probably describe it. x

I've been a huge fan of Alexander Wang's SS'14 collection since I saw the runway show back then.
If only the price tags would speak a slightly different language. But hey, why not be lucky and find
some items on sale. xx

What an extra comfy yet super cute outfit. I love me some sporty slides no matter if they're starting
with an N -ike or A- didas. The times when they were only presentable along the poolside
are definitely over. Would you rock them? x

I felt like wearing some of my favorite basics, yet it wouldn't be me if there wouldn't be a bit of
an edge. I've always been a huge fan of curvaceous bodies such as Karla's, Paula Patton's or Eva Mendes's. This might be due to the fact that I am that body type myself which can be a bit of a challenge in a world where high fashion is mostly made for itsy-bitsy tall girls. I am blessed with a great height just that
itsy-bitsy doesn't really go for me. There are days which make me feel enormously proud about my curves and then there are others... In the end of the day, it's the beauty of being you and about crossing lines. Therefore it won't be a surprise to see us curvy girls in some runway looks too. Who said we can't?  x

For those who are following me on  INSTAGRAM might have heard about my past weeks which
weren't anything but something to get over real quick. And yet, we can't rush our body and the
process of health itself. I had to remove my four wisdom teeth three weeks ago which was a journey through a very dark place since something went wrong and I lost a lot of blood. For that reason and in the
opinion of my dentist, I had to take a very high mix of antibiotics and pain killers for over a week. And out of a sudden after seven days of feeling extremely weak, my body responded with an extreme allergic shock. I haven't seen or experienced anything similar yet. I literally had to proscribe every single mirror next to me. The wounds were covering my complete body and it went worst every single day. The enormous itching kept me awake for days which was quite frightening. One night it went so bad that I drove to the next hospital which was the best decision. I was transferred to a special skin clinic after two nights and it really helped me a lot. I am quite a vain person (nothing I am proud of), so I took this as a lesson and kind of as a free given self-therapy. And I came to an conclusion - Every single thing that has ever happened to you up until right now was preparing you for a moment that is yet to come. Don't go back to less just because you are too impatient to wait on god's best. It's yet to come!

Why did I tell you all that? First of, because I think you deserve to know a little bit more about myself other than having the option to scroll down my images and I want to share my experiences to discuss them and to give a little hope. You can barely see me with an experimental make-up. It's just not me and feel comfortable with my minimal everyday routine. As for today, I felt after almost three weeks which I had to spend either at home, hospitals or with different doctors, it was time to put a little breeze of fresh air into my life - or let's say into my face. Julia and black lipstick, rare but yet oh so full of life. Reborn, almost. x
