I wish i was a punk rocker with flowers in my hair.

It feels so good to be posting again,
Im really happy that can finally put enough effort into this blog again.
So of late I've done alot of op shopping and I've developed a more refined sense of personal style and I have alot of nice pieces.

So of late life has been interesting, I work at an ice creamery and its not actually a completely horrible job the other day some guy asked me how I actually have a job with my coloured hair, which was the most rude and stupid statement I have ever heard.
Im sure alot of people who may have stumbled apon this blog or whatever may suffer from discrimination based apon personal appearance or sex or race or whatever and it is horrible. I get it alot and thats only based apon the personal choices i make on how to look or whatever, I know some people who read my blog dont have coloured hair and they somewhat aspire to be like me, with coloured hair and whatever.
Id just like to let you know that it is hard and you have to be thick skinned and be prepared.
The ironic thing about my job is that, one of my bosses is really sexist and discriminates against me constantly, Im a feminist clearly and when Im told that, I kind of want to punch my boss in the head,
Discrimination is horrible and inevitable, I wish the world was different sometimes.
When I was a little and i used to get bullied alot, when I first saw the bridge to terribitha and i used to imagine  a world where there were no bullies and I was happy. These days I imagine a world with no gender binary, no sexism and really open minded people. Discrimination is horrible.
So stay strong beautiful peoples and keep being who you are, maybe one day the world will change.
But until then you have to stay strong, keep wearing what you want, keep saying what you want and just ignore everything else.

Top- Thrifted, Skirt-  Thrifted, Docs- Vintage shop. 

The skirt is a new favourite, I've gained a bit of weight and skirts are way way more flattering on my figure. I like the contrast of this, it reminded me of 80s days on ovals making out with boys. I defiantly am getting much better at this pairing thing. My lipstick is a toxic mix of eyeshadow and Vaseline, i wouldnt recommend it as a permanent but it is fun to try.

Im back. The story of break ups, the meaning of pink hair, and an apology

Alot can happen in the time I've been away from this blog, and alot has.
I want to take a new direction with this blog, I want to write longer pieces that actually mean more and not just focus the entire blog on what i wear and pictures. I want the people who view or read my blog to learn more about me, who i am, what my life is like and what I'm going through.

I apoligise for the break i took, i think it was a combination of alot of things, I met the perfect guy not long after my last post, and i focused every single piece of energy i had to that relationship which ended yesterday.
I learnt alot through being with him, i learnt to have higher standards and expect more from people and to treat the ones i love better, because admit-ably the breakdown of us was mostly my fault, he was just brave enough to go through with it. He was defiantly a very sweet guy and what he said will stick with me for a very long time, I harbor no harsh feelings towards him and I hope we can one day become friends.

When I started this blog I was fourteen, I was dating my first ever serious boyfriend and when that ended horribly it left me emotionally scarred as he did some terrible things to me, after moving on and healing and then dating the guy i just did I grew alot and had a wonderful relationship which will stay with me for a very long time. He accepted me for whom I am, and i thank him for that because I was myself in every way.

When I broke up with my first boyfriend, I decided to forget what was considered normal and heal myself, be who i wanted, I dyed my hair pink as you might know if you've read my blog before. It was an escape from him as he would never let me do anything like that. But pink hair led to alot more than that, it led to me discovering myself, Finally for the first time in years developed a thick skin and self confidence, I developed the ability to be able to express myself and I finally realized what i wanted, I had so many beautiful adventures and experiences based on that one simple act of separating myself from an ex boyfriend.
I started to develop my own identity, my own beliefs and morals, the image of who I am now.

I've dyed my hair purple, blue and green since then, I' ve had the courage to cut it all off and to buy some of the craziest outfits. The amount I've matured due to that simple act astonishes me, I've realized what really matters and that is not being popular, or pretty, or loved. The important thing is to know yourself, to know who you are and what you want, how you want to look and think and say, that you want to live for yourself and not somebody else, that you are happy with who you are.

So what does this have to do with fashion?
Not alot, I've been thinking since recent events, about how I've become the person i am now.
And how that inspires me to do what I do now.

So I can say that I will really try to make an effort this time
and that I  will also let you know a bit more about me.
That I will write much more lengthy pieces that are worth reading.

If you read all of that,
Thank you
