Under The Sea


I’m super excited to share this one! I love it so much I can now see it everyday in my bedroom. I’ve been a brunette my whole life but sometimes I think I could dye my hair this bright red… just like Ariel, really. And I totally feel like a mermaid. So… it makes sense!

You can now call us Chariel and Julieric!


Get to Know Me with the Liebster Award

I Am ChaSoooo today you will get to know me better! I’ve been nominated by the lovely Cam for the Liebster Award. I will answer the questions she picked for her nominees on her latest blog post ! Please, visit her awesome blog, she is an amazing artist!


1. Whats your Favourite thing to do? Making art!

2. Who is your favorite artist? (remember this can be make- up/music/etc ) This question is difficult to answer, I have many different inspirations. If I had to choose one icon from my generation right now, I would pick Lana Del Rey. Her musical world and videos are very inspiring. It is very poetic.



3. If you were an animal what would you be? Hmm… I don’t know… but not a cat, that’s for sure! I hate cats, sorry.

4. What is the best advise you have ever been given? Don’t waste your time on people who don’t care about you. 

5. What’s the one item you couldn’t live without? My cellphone ’cause I can take pictures, listen to music, make art, publish on wordpress, use Instagram, keep in touch with people… You know already!

6. If you could go somewhere tomorrow, without any limits, where would it be? Braziiil <3



7. What would your last meal be? Sunny side up eggs with fries and a good baguette with camembert (French cheese). And moelleux au chocolat… Voilà! And now I’m hungry.

8. When are you at your happiest? Definitely when I’m with my amazing boyfriend <3

9. Who / what inspired you to start your blog? Many friends telling me that I was good and should do exhibitions. And I thought the idea of starting a blog very appealing. I have the feeling I’ve evolved so much when I look at the first paintings I shared on this blog. Sometimes I want to remove some of them but they are part of this journey I guess.

10. If your life had a motto what would it be? Do everything with passion.

Cristina Yang (Grey's Anatomy) - Have some fire!

11. What has been your proudest moment? Probably when I finished my research thesis of about 100 pages. ‘Cause man, I worked hard for that! A project of one year that no more than 3 people read and will ever read but I am STILL very proud because I almost quit many times but finished it, and did it with passion (and stress ahah). It was about contemporary glass artists and how they can be recognized as contemporary artists (yep, there’s a difference). I could talk about that all day long.

Do You Know (scanned)

Do You Know

‘Do you know who you are? Do you know what’s happened to you? Do you want to live this way? All it takes is one person, one patient, one moment to change your life forever. It can change your perspective, color your thinking. One moment that forces you to re-evaluate everything you think you know. Do you know who you are? Do you know what’s happened to you? Do you want to live this way? Do you know who you are? Do you know what’s happened to you? Do you want to live this way?’

Rouge à Lèvres 4 The Lipstick Tag


Thank you to Cat from My Lip Addiction for tagging me to do this special post. Since I love beauty products, especially lipsticks, it was fun to answer these questions and create some new art for this post.

Here are the Rules: 1. Tag 3 bloggers to answer the same questions. / 2. Those 3 bloggers will tag 3 more bloggers with the same questions and rules. / 3. No tagging back (mentions are fine).

So let’s begin!

1. How many lipsticks do you own? If I count those that are lost in different bags, probably around 10.

2. What was your first ever lipstick? I don’t know… I was more into lip gloss than lipstick in my teenage years until my mid twenties. It completely changed a few months ago. I wanted a more mature look for my real first job and also I stopped dramatic eye makeup looks… I’ve also become more lazy to be honest! So… less eye makeup = more color on the lips! 

3. What is your most worn lipstick? This one currently. It is very cheap but the color and texture are just perfect (Kiko, number 915). It is actually darker than it looks in the picture.

4. What is your favourite brand for lipsticks? I would definitely say Kiko because I’m not gonna lie, it’s cheap and very good!! And no weird flavor. And also you can basically find ANY color you want. Even blue.

5. What is your favourite finish? Sorry guys, I’ll pass on that question.

6. What is the last lipstick you bought? This amazing Kiko lipstick. I already had one but lost it in my car and found it again. And recently lost it again. Welcome to my world.

7. How many lip products do you currently have in your bag? 2.

8. What lipstick do you use to rock a red lip? One Kiko lipstick. The best red I’ve ever tried. It’s a dark red. Number 909. Love it. Perfect if you don’t have the time to do your eye makeup.

9. How do you store your lipsticks? Ahahah Come on, what is that question? Read my answers, you know I lose everything! I don’t store. I am the worst.

10. What lip products are you currently lusting over? Lipcare products for the summer! I will probably buy one lip balm by The Body Shop. Love their products.

I’m not sure my nominees will answer these questions but a little bit of promotion is always good, isn’t it?

My blog is not about beauty products but I really had a lot of fun to create this lip art with some of my paintings and drawings. So thanks Cat for giving me the opportunity to be creative!

Here are my nominees:
