‘Inspiration from across…’


Inspiration from across...
Inspiration from across…

This week two of my assignments for Blogging 101 were to visit and comment on other blogs and be inspired:) Easy, you might say…I agree…only if they weren’t so many amazing bloggers out there who inspire others:)

The assignment – Get Inspired By the Neighbours

Since joining the Blogosphere, I’ve discovered so many extraordinary people who amaze me every day with their talent and creativity…it feels like I embark every day on a journey of self discovery and I always end up with a great achievement…might that be a new way of writing…a new perspective of a landscape or a new challenge to follow!

Challenges…how I love them:)

I’ve always loved a good challenge…something that brings me out of my comfort zone and makes me look at the world from a different angle!

So, today I’ve decided to mention a few of the people who have been an inspiration and who keep me coming back for more:)

Lucile and her inspirational Photo101 Rehab challenge, from which I can’t stay away so I’ve become a happy patient of The Clinic…I definitely recommend it, if you present the following symptoms as carefully described by Albert from the blog Trigger Happy,: “Withdrawal symptoms may include the incessant need to carry your camera everywhere with you, the need to wake up in the wee hours to take photos during the golden hour, and checking up on others you met during the course to see what their newfound knowledge has brought fruit to.”

Andy and his Dark | Side | Thursday…again a great writing or photo challenge that takes you across, to a different point of view. So, if you enjoy a writing challenge or if you’re just curious of what could be on the other side, join us:)

Jennifer and her amazing blog that it’s just a living proof of her talent and determination! She hosts a weekly photo challenge, One Word Photo Challenge, that I’ve recently joined because I am still developing my endless love for the beautiful visual that is life:) Take a peak and join the boat that sails away to the unknown…


Life is indeed beautiful…

…and every day can be your chance to discover the world…share what you love the most and be a better version of yourself!

As I seem to finish most of my posts with a quote, from this week I’ve added a new column to my blog, called Red Echo Date, where I will share weekly, one quote that describes an experience I’ve lived or just words that I can’t seem to shake away:)

‘The Passage’


Dark | Side | Thursday

Screen Shot 2015-05-30 at 23.58.18

Join us and cross the boundaries of your comfort zone…discover your other side!

This post it’s linked to a challenge that Andy started a few weeks ago…I love to go beyond my usual style of writing and uncover something new!

Part One of this story you can find it here…Dark Corner.

The wind stopped…it was quiet.

…her heart started racing, her mind was juggling several scenarios…none of them were in her favour.

She knew he was getting closer but all she could hear was the sound of the sword cutting through the heavy fog, which made it impossible for her to see her nemesis.

Only if she could have found the house…she would have been saved.

It was too late…there was no time to run.

She looked up, her eyes turned red…she felt a sudden power rushing through her veins; maybe it was the impossible situation she found herself in or just the intense desire to stay alive.

She pulled out her weapon…made a few steps back, not because she wanted to run…but because she had to defend herself no matter what the consequences might be.

As his steps were more real…she could now see a shape of a man walking towards her, she could hear his breathing…she couldn’t stop stepping back.

All of the sudden she realised what was at the end of the alley…the passage.

She never experienced it before…her ancestors told fables about it…

It never crossed her mind that the passage was real.

The legend was saying that whoever crosses the bridge will have a chance to undo all the wrongs in their past life…was that true?

It didn’t matter now…an opportunity presented itself…she had a choice; stay and fight with the possibility of defeat or believe that the passage might undo all the dark corners she took throughout her life.

Maybe she had a chance…the light on the other side could be her salvation…

First week of Blogging 101 and Photo 101 finished…I am loving every second of it:)

For the first weekend our assignment was to continue and connect with other bloggers, share the love, write something different and take our camera for a walk…hope that I managed to do all this…

Happy reading:)

Be bold…

Never stay still…

There is another side of you,

Waiting to be discovered!

From the Weekend with Love,

‘Especially for you…’

Welcome back to my Blogging 101, day three challenge – Say Hello to the Neighbours

I did not have to think even a minute about how I will bring to life today’s assignment…it is my absolute pleasure to dedicate my post to all of you who once upon a time stepped into my world and found it worthy of your attention…or maybe just walked on its long corridor with red walls and got tempted to open a few doors…or perhaps this is the very first time you find yourself paging through my red diary and discover a bit of inspiration:)

This is especially for you…

Today I had the honour to meet a fellow blogger who left me a message that made me smile and feel inspired!

I can’t possibly move forward and not mention Swaroop Sadarjoshi and his blog…thank you so much for the lovely words and encouragement but especially for the creative quote:

“May your dreams be new,

Like the sky of beautiful blue“.

I’ve never in my wildest dreams, imagined that my blogging journey will be filled with so many inspirational people, extraordinary stories and talented artists…yes, I’ve called you artists…because no matter what is your intention or your message…if you express yourself through images or words…you are creating art…beautiful and eternal print of who you are!

I’ve been reading some of your comments and I feel so lucky to have so many people around me who love how I see the world, who join me and sometimes look through the same goggles as me…

You are to me, like a beautiful flower garden…colourful and unique…special and endless…inspirational and kind.

You are the reason I find myself constantly thinking, how can I inspire you…how can I draw you into my fantasy…how can I take you on a journey of discovery?

It’s been only three days into Blogging 101 and I’ve already had the pleasure to meet so many amazing bloggers, might that be beginners or well established…and you know what…I feel like my family it’s growing by the second becoming more diverse and full of creativity and personality:)

Thank you for your fantastic support…words of encouragement…likes and smiles…thank you for having great expectations…for finding that red bookmark and place it between the red pages of my blog:)

Your author and biggest fan,

Julia

‘What about MyRedPage?’


“Red is for passion…red is for determination…red is for love.

Red is for blood…red is for fire…and red is for the rose with thorns.

…and you will find me in between”

The road towards my Red World:)

It’s not really a secret that my blog’s title comes from my inexplicable addiction to the colour red:)

It wasn’t a long thinking process to decide the name, all I wanted was a beginning to my new discovered world and what is better for a brand new dawn than a blank page…obviously red:)))

The header picture happened before there was any idea of a blog…and it turned red because of it:)

IMG_5541

I never thought about a tagline…maybe I should, but I like the pictures to tell you the story of the author!

I like originality and that is why I’ve taken every picture I’ve published, sometimes with changes, colour enhancements…or just a touch of me:)

This was the first picture I’ve published along a story I’ve written…Sealed by red lips, a story in four parts!

2015-02-15 12.58.14

I am proud of it because it was created entirely by me…a blank page and a lipstick:)))

It’s not a masterpiece but it’s the first step I’ve taken into this amazing journey I find myself today!

Today’s assignment – Your title and tagline

Be inspirational!

‘Hello Blogging 101’


We always need a challenge, a reason to step forward and get to know the best version of ourselves.

This month I am taking part in Blogging 101 and Photo 101…I am excited of learning new things but most of all I am eager to grow this amazing family of bloggers and discover brand new worlds:)

First assignment of Blogging 101 – “Introduce Yourself to the World”

Most of you know me really well already but I might still have a couple of things to pull out of my invisible hat:)

SONY DSC

This is me…

Your author who, just recently, felt comfortable in saying it out loud that she is a writer and that maybe someday she will have the honour to sign a book with her name on the cover:)

But until then…

I am a fashionista…I love the catwalk, the art and design and I’ve created this blog as the first step in this amazing journey of self discovery. I am in love with photography and every picture I take creates a whole new world that feeds my imagination:)

My favourite colour is Red…

It’s not just a colour to me…it’s a state of mind, “a mirror to my soul”, if you want…

Red is passion, creativity and love…but it’s also the colour of blood, fire and danger!

So here I am, caught in the middle and finding the balance quite beautiful and terribly intoxicating…

My blog it’s my own way of loving life as it is, constantly learning, dreaming and pursuing happiness!

I love baking…

The luxurious taste of dark chocolate and salty caramel…I indulge myself in sweet temptation every time I open the door to the land of endless desserts:)

Also, I am not a stranger to savoury and the beautiful flavour of herbs and spices…

Did I make you wonder? If I did, join me in my little secret ‘Kitchen Corner’ every week and discover what is that I call scrumptiously tasty!

Movie adoration…

I grew up with these amazing stories on the big screen that opened up the world of fantasy and fable but also created a fantastic collection of movies…which I am sharing with you in the hopes that it might bring to life the same emotions I’ve lived while watching them:)

Follow my short reviews that are mostly teasing my readers to go out and watch these movies:)

A little secret

I am completely, irreversibly, entirely, utterly, absolutely in love…

My Red World

Thank you for joining me on this journey and I hope that together we can go out there and paint the town red!

Paint the town red!

Love,

Julia
