faith :: envy

The splendour of a King, clothed in majesty. Let all the Earth rejoice. He wraps himself in light, And darkness tries to hide, And trembles at His voice. Live to know Psalm 73 – A psalm of Asaph Part 1 1 Surely God is good to Israel, to those who are pure in heart. 2 […]

life :: fureur de vivre

I have this hope. A passion. A must for life. A lack of fear. Nothing holding me back. Love never runs out. Higher than the mountains and deeper than the blue depths of the sea. Overwhelming and satisfying my soul. Breathing in life, and breathing out joy. A harmony of peace and war. A war […]

life :: joy in abundance

This topic has been popping up around me a lot lately so I feel pressed to address it, speak and mediate (or type, duh) on it. Our lives are abundant, yet we never quite seem to reach satisfactory satisfaction. As the Arctic Monkeys say “Satisfaction is a distant memory” (Ru Mine). It’s so distant, it […]

life :: onwards and upwards

What’s next for Kulayrosas…? I’ve been thinking a lot lately about a blog revamp, a YouTube channel, and now IGTV has launched it makes sense to start out on there, and wait till my birthday present of a babe Canon camera arrives. But the blog is the blog. My beginning, and my end. Ok, less […]

design :: interior

If you know me, you’ll know I’m a bit of an art freak. I absolutely adore solo art gallery trips, sketching in new sketchbooks (I usually buy a new one on every trip / gallery visit), and I love painting. I love art that much that French art is going to be 1/3 of my […]

style :: questioned

Tout feu, tout charme It’s late on the first Monday night of June and I’m flicking through June/July’s Parisian Vogue as I watch a Netflix drama on an American robbery case. I have not had as relaxed an evening as this in a while. I have soothed my skin with my Sonya Nourishing Serum by […]

faith :: anointment

The true you is rooted in the God of all creation. I have dived into plenty of devotionals lately, using several plans on the Bible app, as well as reading the Esther study on SheReadsTruth. I wouldn’t say I’ve been searching or seeking out God, but with having not been able to go to church […]

year abroad :: toulouse

Determined to see more of France, I hastily reserved an Airbnb in one of France’s major cities. For an entire week… Of all my time spent in France (literally since birth), I have visited Dordogne, Rouen, Normandy and Paris and of course, have lived in Libourne, therefore spent time in Bordeaux too. Oh, and Arcachon […]

life :: homebird

Picture this: lying in bed at 00:42, thoughts buzzing, happiness overflowing when really, you should be sound asleep. This is how I found myself on Friday night, la dernière soirée before my departure back to my beloved French home. It’s surprising the warmth and the joy I feel toward Libourne every time the dear town […]

year abroad :: au fur et à mesure

Petit à petit, peu à peu*, whatever you want to call it…I’m happy to announce that my French is improving. I’m slightly wary of stating that with too much excitement, especially as not a day goes by where I don’t use wordreference.com – my absolute language-learning best friend. But, I do feel that French is finally coming […]
