Blogger wishlist: Jamie Beck

Blogger wishlist: Jamie Beck

Today I thought I’d do a slightly different Blogger wishlist, I hope you enjoy it! Jamie is a photographer in New York City and has a beautiful blog, From Me To You, which showcases all of her amazing photography. I asked Jamie to send me her wishlist and what she sent me was a beautiful dream, so I thought I we needed to find out a little more about her first…
Jamie Beck
Jamie takes the most gorgeous photos of in and around New York City, they really capture the essence of the city and make me wish I was there. One of my best friends is moving to New York next month, so who knows, perhaps my dream to visit will come true sooner than later! When Jamie’s not taking photos in the city, she’s exploring the countryside or she’ll be whipping something up in the kitchen for her “Dinner & A Movie” posts or taking fun self portraits. She is one incredibly creative and talented lady. These are some of my favourites from Jamie’s most recent posts…

And now for Jamie’s wishlist…
“When I need inspiration I turn to the romantic photography of Jakob Tuggener and try to live in the fantasy of his photographs.
I imagine slipping on a vintage gown as soft and fleeting as the night with matching flowers atop my head keeping the illusion of summer youth. The candle in my dressing room burns a sweet smell as I apply the night’s last eyelash and let the damp musk of Mure et Musc Eau de toilette seep into my skin. I slide my feet into Christian Louboutin’s as I adorn my ears in diamonds to match the stars at night. My driver awaits in a 1950 Desoto, I slip my Leica into my clutch (after all I am still a photographer) and into the Paris night we ride to adventures that only fate can know.
It’s more than a wish-list, it’s a dream I’ve dreamed a thousand times.”

From me to you's wishlist
Thanks so much for sharing your dream with us Jamie, it’s just lovely. There’s nothing better than creating a beautiful imaginary daydream, it’s the perfect place to escape to when you’re feeling down and something to aspire to as well. What are your dreams? Have you been dreaming big lately?
