As some of you may have noticed, I’ve been experimenting quite a bit with the layout and content for this blog ever since the re-launch. Can you blame me. I finally feel completely free, in this set up and my content, and I feel like it would be a waste not to experiment a little bit. This also stopped me putting a pressure onto myself regarding of how often I post of what kind of posts you’ll get from me. I definitely want to branch out more, and not only putting outfit posts but share bit more on beauty, music, movies, well things that interest me and make me happy. And those interests for sure aren’t your stereotypical “fash-un blogger” things. Not that I’m throwing shade at all, after all we are all different and an individual, so of course no blogger, no person is the same. But I definitely acknowledge and finally accept that I am not and will never be one of these bloggers. And that’s ok. Heck, more than ok! If there is something about you that is different, or stands out, embrace it and make it work for you instead of hiding and trying to fit in. Some people don’t fit in, nor we shouldn’t have.
style upgrade: from emo to goth
I hate putting labels unto myself, and I’ve always hated it to be quite frank with you. Sure we need them, it’s just how our brain categorise the chaos around us, with that being said, I do believe the can be rather limiting. Let me give you an example. When I was younger, around 13-14 years old I discovered the emo music, started to listen more metal based artists and with that copy their style a bit, of course I’ve wanted to fit in the crowd of the “emo” kids, but hated having the label “emo” attached to me, mostly because it wasn’t the most positive label out there. Having a label also would mean to me that I was unable to move forward and progress with my style or interests, it does seem bit restraining. And as much as back in the day I would refuse to take the name of the emo kid, looking back, I totally was an emo kid! And now I say that loud and proud. Maybe because there are more people who use to or still are emo and are so freaking open and proud of it. And let’s face it, being an emo in 2017 seems quite cool! Nowadays, whenever someone sees me and refer to my style, they would usually say something along those lines “you look so Goth” few years ago for whatever stupid reason, this would offend me, maybe because I was a stupid and ignorant child when it come to style and subcultures, but now I say “thank you” not because I feel 100% Goth for most of the time. I do appreciate the beauty of Gothic subculture and looking the part of it, is something that makes me proud. Especially since there are so many different versions of Gothic clothing on the market. This outfit could be described as a

I think it’s mostly because of the minimal silhouettes of this dress, it does give away a rather sporty vibe. Then again I am wear a choker and 6″ high heels with this dress so maybe I don’t look like a health goth, who knows. This dress definitely reminded me of the way the health goth people dress on the internet, and it is definitely the most comfortable and casual dress I own. This makes it so easy to dress up with some heels and dark lips, like I’m wearing here, or dress down with pair of Doc Martens or in the true Health Goth vibes, pair of Nike’s, in black of course.
sometimes we take things for granted
On the other side of things I just came back from London. And let me tell you a story, first of my life is an actual joke. I meant to go to Sweden with Josh but since everything was rushed, and touch disorganised, I missed my flight, and instead of having full on breakdown, I took the train back to London for the weekend and Josh headed to his beloved Sweden, check out the images he took, they look bomb! We all know that ever since I moved to Manchester I take every given opportunity to come back into my favorite city, even if it’s for few days. And it’s been awesome! I got to shop, get lost in the streets of Covent Garden, meet up with my friends that I haven’t seen for months and most of all. I got to see my favorite band Tokio Hotel on Sunday 12th of March. Don’t worry a post on what I’ve worn is coming! But while walking around London, just for the sake of it, looking at all the people rushing, or visiting some of the most incredible book and jewellery shops that I didn’t know existed till now and sipping soy lattes in a cool hipster coffee shop around Angel. It really made me re-think few things. When I was living in London I definitely didn’t take the full advantage of that was in front of me, being in London just makes me feel alive again. Being in that city is totally addicting. And I could bitch about how living in Manchester sucks etc because I am away from everyone. But you know what, I can come back! And I swear I will, that’s why if there’s something in your life even as simple as living in the city don’t take it for granted. Explore that city, go out, get lost in it’s streets. You never know what tomorrow may bring.
Thank you so much for reading this long and random post. I hope there’s something you’re able to take away from it. Please let me know in the comments whenever you went through an emo phase. Or what is one thing that makes you feel grateful for living in the place you live in. Till next time! Love xxx
