We choose where to live, travel and even have our coffee because aesthetics can be a powerful thing for our senses and well-being. When a certain spot makes us feel happy, secure, comforted and brings back sweet memories, we tend to come back to experience it over and over again.
Perhaps, this was part of the reason why Vogue picked the same spot for two different shots. I stumbled upon the earlier one whilst browsing my “archives”. The photo reminded me of some other story and it didn’t take long to realise that it was the one “with the poodle” I’ve always adored and used in the past. The first image is from the Vogue’s 1995 January issue and the picture below is a part of the March 1999 story.
Do you know this place? Please let me know.
And getting back to location… The subject of the Google reader has been on every bloggers lips in the last few days or weeks even. It seems that the current location, i.e. GFC/Reader is no longer good enough to keep, so we all need to pack our bags and, like a flock of birds or crowd of lost tourists, migrate to Bloglovin’ for good.
At first I panicked, but fortunately Bloglovin’ IT fairies made everything fairly easy. All you have to do is to sign up or log in and then use the button that pops up on your screen to import the blogs from your Blog Reader to the new location (the old Blogger list will remain where it is, so don’t worry).
If you don’t see the “Import message” and can’t use the link above, go to your Bloglovin’ account, choose Settings in the drop down menu, scroll down to the bottom of the page to the “Other” section and use “Import” button there instead. It takes seconds to make things right again.
In addition, now you can see your followers by name unless, of course, they don’t have a Bloglovin’ account or choose to follow you anonymously.
If you want to follow Fashioned by Love, use the button on the side bar or click here.
Because after 1 July location will definitely matter.
