Bare skin beauty: tales of sand and sea

Picture a restless young soul, a deserted space at the edge of the world, an endless expense of sand and no trace of clothing covering her striking body. Except for a few tattoos spread carefully along her unflawed skin, carrying the secret of a time past, there’s no way of telling her story. She could be anyone, her story might as well be still unwritten, her reality could easily fit into yours, or maybe not.

Lensed by Ryan Pike, Schanae Jellick (schanaejellick.squarespace.com) morphs into a beautiful enigma. At ease with the bareness of her body, her hair fixed in nothing but a messy side braid, her face touched by little make-up, she walks the beach like the world would be hers to conquer.

There for a day, or there to stay, searching for an escape or looking to embrace the wilderness, her tales could hide under many patterns, as the light in her eyes would only speak to those who really want to see her, underneath the skin.

Shaped by all things beautiful and feminine, Nicoleta Parascan’s first steps towards entering the captivating world of fashion were taken somewhere around the young age of six, when she received her very own first fashion magazine. Discovering an entirely new universe, filled with pretty ladies and beautiful clothes, there was not much able to ever beat or compete with the fantasy land that was suddenly opening up. Surrounded by books, constantly thinking about the next best outfit, in search of a signature style and defined by a nostalgic calling towards the past, Nicoleta believes in taking chances, in destiny and in building her own path in life. When she’s not writing, you can easily find her playing with her cat, reading an old book, watching movies, exploring the city or blogging her own daily adventures.
