Going back to school this Fall was not (really)easy at all. Fortunately, Brazos Gallery hosted a stylish Art Exhibition to put me in a good mood this semester. From August 25th to September 12, was presented Dandy Fresh , by Marcello Pope. I loved it!!!

Bref, en Septembre je blogue de nouveau

Gosh, I have been gone for so long

Ok ,I have thought about all the different cheesy ways of saying that I am blogging again but I can't find a good one so I will keep it short.

I am blogging again :D

What's new?

My blog will be more structured. I am adding little categories that I am grouping into the " Inspiration box " tab. My Inspiration box is a collection of my inspirations, reviews and discoveries in photography and other Visual Arts. I hope that I can inspire you too.

Of course,  I will still blog about my silly and ordinary life in "my black rainbow" 

Thank you for still  reading me
