New Romantic was born in November 1st, 2009. It exists because I have a passion for sharing things that make me smile, inspire me, make my days a little happier and because my wonderful friend Kya agreed to let me host it blog on Bubble.
The purpose of this blog is to gather quotes, videos, images, lists, texts, music and everything else that inspires me and hopefully inspires other people as well. I occasionally post graphics make by me as well. I hope you stick around and get some inspiration!
Who are you?
I’m a 26 year-old Brazilian girl who loves animals, ice cream and can’t live without music. My first language is Portuguese and I learned English on my own (as I’m sure you noticed).
Internet works for me as a way to escape of all the negativity and pessimism that surround us all the time. I used to blog (I still do it but not as often as before) at LiveJournal where I met some of the most wonderful people I know today. And before that I used to have (free hosted full of ads) sites to display Harry Potter graphics. At that time I had a lot of free time, some knowledge on HTML and knew the words to all Dawson’s Creek’s episodes.
Today I don’t have as much free time cause I’m in my last semester of Nutrition and I intend on beginning another course on designing area next year.
Why New Romantic?
You probably think the domain was chosen because of the New Romantic 80’s musical-fashion movement but you’re wrong. I actually chose it cause I love Laura Marling’s music specially the song New Romantic. I think everyone should listen to her songs. Her work is precious!
