} Nea 20% OFF SALE 8yr Anniversary



It’s that time of the year again! Weeeeee!

Another year of existence for Nea, a 8th one that is. It’s been a journey (and still is), with it’s ups and downs, with some expectations dashed and some wild hopes granted, and that’s accurate as much for the business than the personal side. BUT, I’m still hanging in there! ;)

So, celebrate with me!!
From August 18th to 31st,
get 20% OFF anything and everything in my Etsy Shop!
Simply use the promocode “NEAis8” at checkout! :)

‘Til next time! ;)


C’est CE temps-là de l’année de nouveau, ouiiiiiii!

Une additionnelle année d’existance pour Nea, la 8e. Ce fut (et est toujours) une épopée, avec les hauts et les bas, incluant des attentes démolies et des espoirs irréalistes réalisés, et cela autant pour le côté affaires que le côté personnel. MAIS, je suis encore là! ;)

Alors, célèbrez avec moi!!
Du 18 au 31 août,
tout est à 20% de rabais dans ma boutique Etsy!
Utilisez le code promo “NEAis8” au checkout, et voilà! :)

} Mural Festival Photo Day


Recently (ok, OKAY, many weeks ago already…), I learned about the Mural Festival here in Montreal, and thought right away about my friend Pierre and how we’d been saying we should do a photo day together since we first met many months earlier. Perfect opportunity right?!

Now, this is also a tad intimidating for me, since Pierre’s actually a freelance photographer. As in full-time job. I mean, the dude lives for and from his camera, he’s super talented, and here I am wanting to “mesure up”? Huhhhh, I don’t think so. lol!

Sooo, I put that scary thought way far in my mind, and went in with my usual approach for photodays, which I would qualify more as fascination. It really does fascinate me that two people can go at the same spot, at the exact same time, and come up with such different results. The eye doesn’t see the same from a person to the next, nor does the connections in each brain follow the same route. (And nor does our photography and life experiences, nor gear, match. lol) Our end results clearly shows all of that!

That goes to prove one of my favorite mottos: everyone is different, and also same. Sure, generalization can be useful to explain a point or theory, but fact of the matter is, we are unicity.

Anyway! Back to the main subject… Mural Festival. It was a street art event that was held on St-Laurent street in June, so I’m kinda later for this post. But then again, two positives: 1- those big murals are still there yo. ;) and 2- Pierre was quick publishing his shots on his blog, so it balances out my tardiness… Doesn’t it…? Maybe…? No…? Ah… Alrighty then. lol!

Here we go for mine! (Feel free to click to see bigger versions.)


Oops, wasn’t I there for Mural? … As you can see, I must admit I felt myself kinda fighting against my natural photography instincts. I tend to go macro, nature or architecture when I’m out with my camera. SO, I sometimes had to “force myself” to explore that for what I was there. There is hope, cause I was able to do a little of it…

The talent of some people, I tell ya! Wowsa!


Aaaaaand back to regular macro/nature/architecture programming… lol! (And, do note the lack of one single portrait, compared to tons of them captured thru Pierre’s eyes! I really DO like humans, I swear. lol)


Well there it is! :)

To end, two last pictures, showing HOW MUCH my camera needs a well deserved cleaning after over 7yrs of service. See all those dots?! Yeah. In a busy image, they don’t show, but in skies, it’s a pain. Used to be only 2-3, so it was easy to clean up in Photoshop, but now they are allll overrrr and it’s driving me nutsssss! I just need to GO DO IT…

} Item of the Week Promo


The “Item of the Week” promo for a 3rd time! Kinda loving this now ;)

For June, I chose a piece that is simple, but elegant and edgy at the same time. Featuring matte black metal feathers and sparkly silver plated chain, they tinkle lightly in your ears as you go about your day. Always loved that fact about them!

And so, the Raven Earrings are now $24,
that’s 20% off the original price during this week!

Now is the time! Go to my Etsy Shop and get your pair! :)


La promo “Item de la semaine” est de retour pour la troisième fois!  Je commence à aimer ça! ;)

Pour juin, j’ai choisi des boucles d’oreilles simples, mais élégantes et modernes à la fois. Mettant en vedette des plumes de métal noires mattes et des chaînes scintillantes plaquées argent, elles carillonnent doucement vos oreilles pendant que vous vaquez à vos activités. J’ai toujours aimée ce détail d’elles!

Donc, les boucles Raven sont maintenant 24$,
ce qui donne 20% de rabais sur le prix original durant cette semaine!

C’est maintenant le temps de visiter ma boutique Etsy et d’acquérir les vôtres! :)
