Getting ready to face the cold north that awaits outside my door.
Shirt skirts are surprisingly extremely comfortable
This is the outfit I wore on Tuesday. I've been feelin' the grunge and feelin the sparkle. I have been wearing this headband a lot lately. Now that I have my hair dyed a a very strawberry blonde colour I feel like hats and headpieces look so much better on me (conceited much?). I really need to make some new head pieces though so expect to see some of those in the future (tutorial maybe?). Here are a few close ups of my hair.
Fuck Yeah! There is just so much teenage angst in this photo. Im LOL-ed so much while writing this.
In other news last month I was featured on GuestofaGuest.com where they listed me as one of the top bloggers under 18. I was really honored and surprised to be put on there with such names as Tavi Gevinson (The Style Rookie), Willie Greene (WeTheUrban) and Arabelle Sicardi (Fashion Pirate). I look up to all three of them so I totally had a fan girl freak out moment when I first found out (which was during the middle of the School Musical. I got a text from my mom and immediately started hyperventilating and screaming oh my god to myself. The rest of the audience was not amused). You can check out the article here, I was number SIX.
I have a lot of great posts planned for the next month. And i know what your thinking: 'she's just gonna take another mysterious hiatus and were not gonna see another post until next month blah blah blah blah blah.' But I actually took the time to plan out these posts this week with pictures and writing and everything. So its super legit. No more breaks.
I also have a few goals I want to accomplish for Calur Villade in the next few months before school ends. Im in the process of setting up an online store, selling some of my clothes, and headbands and jewelry. It's just that setting up an online shop can be tricky for a computer-challenged girl like me so don't expect anything too soon.
Another thing I want to accomplish before summer hits is to create a ZINE. Yes, you heard me right, a Zine. Its something that has been on my mind a lot mainly. I know if i put the time and effort in I can make something really awesome involving art, fashion and photography etc. I have a few ideas on the table and have already started talking with a few of my friends on concepts and photo shoots. But I would also love for you guys to contribute too! With either writing, or pictures or art or DIYs. But lets brainstorm first. What do you want to see in a zine? And also, What are some of your favorite zine's? I want to read some more to get some inspiration for mine. The only zine I have ever read is Butch by the lovely and talented Roma. So if you write a zine, or know of some good ones let me know and I'll check it out!
I have much much more I want to talk about with you guys but I'll save it for the posts to come. I have received a lot of emails from you readers in the last month, and I'm sorry if I haven't replied to you yet. Its taking me a while to sift through them all and I don't want to give you guys shitty half-ass responses.
I hope you guys have had a great week! Talk to you in a few days!

I leave you with another great angsty picture
