Hello! I'm Carol. I am a designer, art director originally based in Paris. After 5 years working in the city, I've decided to take a break and move back to my beachy countryside; Bassin d'Arcachon for a couple of months till the next adventure beings.
Meaning of the name
I am from sunny island, Singapore but I grew up in the south-west of France. Sometimes I feel like I have two personalities from two different cultures. That's how twopartsofone came about. I actually think in English, Mandarin and French.
Sometimes, I describe stuffs in french and yet I have absolutely no idea how to translate it in English nor Mandarin and vice versa.
My original intention for blogging was to let my close friends and families about how I was doing during my earlier stays in France. Now I'm just expressing my ideas, documenting my holidays, playing with dress up or experimenting with inks and paint.
A different name?
Yes! I'm quite glad that you mentioned. This blog was called the Exquisistic box, since 2009. The name was quite complicated, and not everyone seemed to be able to remember it. So I renamed it to my instagram username. Long before it became more like a blog, I used to run the now-hideous xfantasywingsx.
Yep, I belong to the generation who started making pre-made website templates.
By the way, this blog is also listed at Bloglist.me
What tools am I using?
Lettering wise, I've had people liking the font that I have on some photos. Unfortunately, that's not a font, those are just my hand writing on a Wacom Intuos 4.
Camera tools used to be CANON 60D + 17-85mm and a 50mm but [update]unfortunately, all my cameras are gone now. Newest gadget is a CANON 6D + 24-70mm / 50mm.
As I've introduced, I am a designer. All contents are created by me unless otherwise stated. It takes a lot of time and effort.
