Did you know that I have a forthcoming novel coming out?

There’s still a long way to go with it. It is called “Welcome to Wonderland” and will be Book 1 of a trilogy of novels revolving around a Bohemian Love Story. I usually post the latest news about my fiction on my official site CatherineVaughan.com and the publication date of this novel will be first announced on THIS Mailing List from my official site: http://eepurl.com/cxzD1D Kindly share this 💌Mailing List💌 link to any friends and family you think will LOVE the sound of this book series.

Like all my other writing this book series is something I have put my heart and soul into. There are moments I’ve cried as I’ve typed the paragraphs.  It’s a very personal story, certainly not autobiographical but an intimate imprint of all the things I wished and longed for in…

The Bohemian Illustrator: Izak Zenou

Our Paris born illustrator Izak Zenou makes art that connects “through whims, charms, elegance, humor, surprise and coolness,” as he says.

I love Izak’s work especially his illustrations for the book Bohemian Manifesto. His work was my first introduction to the art form of illustration. It is undeniably the epitome of whimsical chic.

His clients include Henri Bendel, Bloomingdale’s alongside Chanel, Céline and Sephora. Chic with chic Darling!

Zenou was previously a Fashion designer then switched to Illustration because Darlings we Bohemians cannot commit to one form of art… So much talent why constrain ourselves?

He also illustrated Billy Joel’s Ode to NYC children’s book: “New York State of Mind and did the cover art for  Francesca Castagnoli’s novel: “Princess: You know who you are.”

Zenou’s top tip (as posted in JeffyBruce.blogspot.co.uk) on entering the creative arena:

“The advice I would give is believe in yourself, work hard and be patient.  You also have to engage in life and always stay in motion; keep moving forward.  Do what you are inspired to do and eventually, it will all work out.”

 

 

My first exposure to his work all began in the charming book Bohemian Manifesto: A Field Guide to Living on the Edge. Written by the Queen of Bohemia Laren Stover. Look out for the forthcoming updated edition of this book with more of his work in. I have been telepathically informed that new chapters are being typed by faeries’ feet as Laren dictates the words. Though Zenou continues with conventional methods to draw new illustrations.

 

“If I succeed somehow to put emotion in the eyes- I seduce myself. I’m touched, I’m moved and I’m happy with that.” – Izak

For the Fan Girls Zenou’s designs can be yours on Laptop sleeves, iPad and selected phone covers at DecalGirl.com/Izak.

Catherine’s debut poetry collection The Quarter Life Crisis Poet”

Here we have a collection of poems I wrote between 2010-2015. It’s essentially 25 years of my existence, much of it was filled with pain, disappointments and sorrow. Maybe you can relate? Out of despair, hope can return and happier days can appear. I hope these poems can make you feel less lonely about the pain we all feel inside. Even if you’re facing a Quarter Life Crisis know that you’re not the only one and you will come out of it stronger. *Hugs!* Join me on my journey….

The World’s Most Beautiful Bohemian : Talitha Getty

Boho.Blog

Source

If there is one deceased soul whom I believe to have been in another life it would be this particular Getty. Getty by marriage not birth of course. Talitha was beautiful and damned like me. Most curiously she was born on the island of Java which is where half my family are from. Talitha Getty is the quintessential Bohemian, she was an actress, she was beautiful, well-traveled and married a millionaire. Once a heart is touched with Dreams of Bohemia one cannot simply live in squalor, not if you’re a beautiful woman.

We owe much to our imaginings of Bohemian life to Tali-G. She epitomized the beautiful, damned and exotic side of Bohemian Life. Trips to Marrakesh, kaftans and exotic collectibles are conjured in the mind when one hears the word “bohemian” because of Talitha Getty. She lived it first. Her mother Poppet John was the daughter of Painter…
