The secret lives of beauty bloggers…

Posted by Lipglossiping On September - 26 - 2012

Hi, my name’s Charlotte and I lead a double life.  In my spare time, I take photos of doors.

I’ve just returned from Prague, they have a lot of doors, cool doors.  Look…

I hope I haven’t blown your mind too much.  I am so much fun to go on holiday with.

Do you have any “interesting” hobbies you’d like to share in order to make me feel better about myself?

 

* but seriously, isn’t that sunflower door AMAZING?

** no, really

    Did you see the door with small human heads? I take pictures of people eating :)

    • I didn’t SEE it!!!! Where was it?!

      People eating? That IS weird!

      I wish I’d gotten some restaurant recs from you – I kinda stuck to most of the same places I’ve been before. Though I did brave a proper canteen for lunch one day!

      • Nazgul says:

        It’s close to Cubista building on Celetna street, you would have to walk towards Ovocny trh.

        I just think when people eat they look more natural :) and, yes it’s so weird.

        I’ll make a list for your next trip to Prague with all good and interesting places to eat.

    Amazing! My other hobby is ballet, I’m obsessed with pointe shoes and last year started pointe work for the first time. I think your hobby is more original though.

  4. Well, they are incredible doors…

  5. Helen Gray says:

    Sunflower door is really cute, very unusual! I have lots of cook books that I like to flick through, I don’t as time to cook as I used to. x

  6. Wow didn’t realise doors could be this beautiful!

  7. Shortiee31 says:

    Ooo I love the turquoise door on the bottom left! So pretty :)

  8. Wordbird says:

    You mean I’m not the only person who does this? Hoorah! 😀

  9. Lauren says:

    I’m a secret history geek. Sssh! Don’t tell anyone! FYI, gorgeous doors!

  10. Clare says:

    I can’t walk past a row of beach huts without taking an Instagram. Lovely pics, Charlotte :)

  11. sharnek says:

    I love to Kayak. Plays havoc with a manicure though.

  12. Robyn says:

    Ooooh, thems some purdy doors! I quite like all the photos of them together, I have to say! Would make a cool print.

  13. Leah says:

    I hate you.

    I have a board on Pinterest just for door porn.
    However, since you’ve posted so many luscious doors, I shall forgive you 😉

    Did you get any piccies of the astronomical clock?

    My entire Tumblr feed is pretty much cats, if that makes you feel any better.

    I agree about that sunflower door. When I was scrolling through all the pictures I thought “Wow, these are so cool! I wish we had doors like that on buildings around here-HOLYCRAP THE SUNFLOWER DOOR!” My odd hobby isn’t that odd, especially among people who dabble in sewing. I love to touch fabric of all kinds. If I see someone with a shiny, or fuzzy, or floaty (etc) dress, I want to touch it! Whenever I go fabric shopping, I always touch so many more bolts than I need to. Even when I have one specific kind of fabric I’m looking for, I always wind my way through the whole store, just touching the edges of the fabric. It’s so tactile-ly amazing!

  15. Those are some good doors. In Budapest, my husband largely took pictures of cigarette stubs. x

    Desperate to go to Prague. Can’t wait to see the doors..!

  18. Janie says:

    You are too cute.

    You’re right though – that Sunflower door is spec’!

    You should come to Bahrain. We have some amazing carved wooden doors here. Apart from blogging, my hobby (obsession?) is searching the web for vintage Chanel bags. Gotta cut it out, it’s getting out of hand! Even my dog is getting fed up with it! Love your blog. x

  20. Sydney says:

    Gosh, some of those doors are truly beautiful.
    Prague is definitely on my 2013 list of places to go.

    I don’t think I have any weird little quirks like that… I shall have to think on :)

  21. It´s really cute you like our doors :) (I like your blog btw.)

    Greetings from Prague :)

    my favourite is the blue door. almost looks like an indoor thing, covered with velvet!

  23. […] conventional ways.  A city like Prague offers a wealth of quirks, some of you may be aware of my door fetish!  Capture the spires, the gargoyles, statues, or the graffiti (there’s lots!) – do […]
