Michi Michi Rainbow Land |
Clothing, Jewellery and Accessory Online Shop

Second Daughter is a big fan of Japanese fashion. She often makes clothes and accessories herself but is all the same always on the lookout for shops dedicated to her passion. When she found Michi Michi Rainbow Land on DaWanda, it was a happy day for her.

We have so far placed three orders with Teresa. I say “we”, because I started browsing her shop too and found (many) things to my liking. All items arrived quickly, were very well made and in the right colours. They came in a pretty, shiny lilac package, with a nice little note and a discount voucher for a next order. Communicating with Teresa is easy and extremely friendly. When for whatever reason the discount voucher did not work with the second order, she sent some free products instead. When, to benefit from a promotion, I wanted to add some products to an order she had already prepared and sent, Teresa created a custom order for me and charged me a minimal amount for postage. Impeccable service, really.

I have worn my Mexican Skull Day of the Dead ring and necklace quite a lot already. I find they add a nice spot of colour to a black outfit. All other items you can see on the photos belong to Second Daugther. And she lent me her pink wig for the hair accessories… 😉

Michi Michi Rainbow Land is also present on other online shopping platforms such as Etsy or Storenvy. You can find the relevant links below.

Introducing My New Website | Of Lens And Pen

I am very excited. That is one big box ticked on my “new projects” list, which you can find in my It Has Been A Long Time post.

Of Lens And Pen, my brand new website dedicated to photography and writing, is now live. It is still a work in progress, but I am pretty proud of it.

I would love to hear what you think. :)

Photo Shoot |
Just For Fun

If you are the photographer in the family, chances are you rarely appear in photos. Or you may be looking for a new way of gathering memories with your children and husband. Or you simply wonder what it feels like to be a model for one day. Let my share my experiences with you.

The first photo shoot I ever took part in happened when I was still living in Switzerland. My friend Sabine was launching her photography business and asked me if I would pose for her with my daughters. I jumped at the chance and over ten years later, the memories of this sunny, happiness filled day still make me smile. My second shoot was with Sabine too, a present for the man who was then Sexy Boyfriend. Needless to say, he loved it.

Not long after I moved to Germany, I met Jaytee, also a photographer. Our photo sessions have been both professional and private. On the business side, we did three Desigual “campaigns” together – and laughed a lot in the process! All theme-related photos on my blog have been taken in her fotoinitiative studio and there are more to come linked to my new projects…

On the private side, Sexy Hubby and I took part in a couple photo shoot. My jaw just dropped when I saw the pictures, we absolutely loved them. You can find a few examples in my AFFLICTION Leather Jackets | The Professional Photo Shoot post. I will also always be grateful to Jaytee to suggest a session with my Mum, First and Second Daughters. This was at the time First Daughter decided to move back to Switzerland, a very difficult period for me. The afternoon in the studio was a welcome breath of fresh air and the resulting photos still bring tears of emotion to my eyes.

Finally, I did two more “just me” shoots. The first one was again a present for Sexy Hubby and involved guitars and cowgirl boots. 😉 The second, recent one is a mix between:
1. New professional photos
2. An anniversary gift to my husband
3. Trying out the new boudoir area of Jaytee’s studio
4. Testing new backgrounds
Once again, I love them all and I must say, that brick wall makes a brilliant background.

Jaytee’s style is not to direct her customers. On the contrary, the music of your choice is on, you are relaxed and chatting. Then somehow, you just move around and Jaytee captures your expression or pose at the exact right second. The whole process is a lot of fun and the moment your pictures are being unveiled very exciting.

Fun, excitement and wonderful memories, what more can you ask for?
