Angelic : This is a piece from the Jean Paul Gaultier SS04 runway collection. It is very simplictic yet noteworthy. The polished corset adds a very delicate but seductive feel to this outfit. Jean Paul’s corsets have been known for being very unique, bizarre and extraordinary, especially the infamous pink satin, conical breasted corset that was worn by Madonna in 1990. This is a more plain sailing design compared to his other creations, but it works & goes well with this open neck, ridged, silk shirt underneath. The unique and exclusive design of these Giuseppe Zanotti X Kanye West patent leather stilettos caught my eye. When I look at these heels I see A mix between Angel wings & flames. I like this because in a way it’s giving the consumer the option to see what they want it to be, because even if somebody sees what you see, they still don’t see what you see. “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder”. To complete the outfit, I added a Balenciaga choker that is embellished with diamonds and a Tom Ford crystal logo “chain mail” side bag. This shade of metallic grey that has been displayed in all elements of this outfit is very beautiful and refreshing.
Stripes & Neutral Shades : Stripes are one of the oldest cloth patterns and there is a long history behind this pattern. Starting from the Middle Ages, striped clothing was used to represent an outcast in society e.g. servants, court jesters, “madmen” , prisoners & even prostitutes. As the years have gone by, they have become more trendy and chic. They can make a graphic statement depending on how they are styled. I decided to choose this cropped, cream blazer by Orseund Iris along with a flared, cropped trousers from the same brand. I like the style of this ensemble, the camel shaded stripes are very thin and I also like the delicate pieces of thread hanging from the arms of the blazer. To complete this look, I decided to pick Yeezy Season 2 Clear heels (they are quite plain and can be matched with almost anything) & a Jacquemus “Le Chiquito” croco stamp cream micro bag.
My Bratz shirts from @hottopic have arrived! I want to talk about them a little bit because Bratz dolls had the biggest impact in my life growing up. I started playing with Bratz a little while after they were first released and soon they were all I wanted and every time I went to the store, I got a new one. I had so many dolls that filled up a large storage bin, I had bins to separate all of their shirts, pants, shoes, and accessories. I also had bedding, the lip phone, chairs, all of their CDs, anything that was covered in Bratz, I had. It got to a point where I never really played with them but, instead I would dress them up, do their hair, and place them gently in a line across my bedroom floor. I was obsessed with their clothing and creating new looks all the time. This influenced my life when I would go clothes shopping. I would want clothing that looked like something similar to what my dolls were wearing. I also loved Green Day, so I wanted to wear my Green Day t-shirt with my low rise bootcut jeans, chunky boots, and my funky hat. When I got older, I give them away, grew up, and tried to figure out what to do with my adult life. I realized that fashion was all I wanted to do. I don’t think fashion would have ever been an idea for me if it wasn’t for my Bratz dolls. Barbie could never get me to fall in love with fashion the way Bratz did (probably because I am not a fan of the color pink lol). Even back then little Kirsten loved bands and fashion and wanted to bring them together. That’s now what I do in my everyday life and on this blog. I want my band merch but I also want to be fashionable. I had some of the dolls on these shirts growing up and I recognized their clothing and I could even remember what they felt like and the material they were made out of. When I saw Hot Topic created these shirts, I knew that I had to get as many as I could that really brought me back to my childhood and reminded me where my love for fashion started.
Nueva la era,nueva la etapa,pero mía,sola pero feliz.
Porque aprendí que todo es genial cuando floreces tu amor propio,cuando tú eres la única que entiendes tus payasadas y las cosas que haces,el por qué las haces.
Aprendí que el amor rojo intenso no te lleva a nada bueno,solo a la destrucción emocional de dos personas,o bueno,en algunos casos…solo a la destrucción emocional de una.¿Pero sabes? Lo mejor es cuando te das cuenta que no necesitas a esa persona,porque conoces tu fortaleza,aprendiste mucho,y así te haya dañado,estás agradecida porque te enseñó lecciones que valdrán para toda la vida.
FUE UN PERIODO CORTO EN MI VIDA,PERO QUE ME ENSEÑÓ MUCHO PARA EL RESTO DE ELLA.
So one of the things i love doing is taking what i call a medicated bath. No this isn’t something i go to the doctors for, or even go to the store for. Just a lil something i picked up on the way of life. These medicated baths vary on how i am feeling and what i’d like to accomplish for myself. I like to use herbs and many other fruits and vegetables to use throughout the bath to enhance my skin and hair. Self care is the first step into feeling beautiful no matter who or what anyone says you look like.
Just last night i gave my self a ginger soak. I was feeling down and out. Very pushed to my limits, and of course my anxiety was running wild. I ran my boyfriend a little nuts too lol. Dealing with Covid and of course just the dailies of life has been piling up and creating a muck. Its best i regroup.
First thing is to draw your bath with basic water. Whatever temperature you prefer. I like it HOT, as my body tends to naturally be cold, i have notoriously cold feet at all times of the year.
HOW I SOURCE MY BATH INGREDIENTS
You can source your materials however you￼ prefer, but i am SUPER lazy and i like to just have whatever i need already at home. My method is also cost effect, literally costs you nothing. ￼
I use ginger root in my cooking, but any source of ginger should be fine as long as its natural and organic. When im using ginger i have to cut the outer skin off to use it. I do not throw away the ginger skins. I wash it, let it dry on a paper towel or a clean dish towel (while also finishing up my cooking for said meal). As im cleaning up i placed the now dried ginger into a jar (any recycled jar will do). Place it in the fridge until needed. You may also use this method to use in cooking.
So as the bath is being drawn, pop those ginger bits in a pot, add some water. Boil this just like that, you may add any other herbs of choice. I just like ginger on its own. You may turn off the heat once the bath is finished being drawn. Pour everything into the bath.
Ginger Bath. Of course this is very basic and simple and seems like a no brainer. But for someone like me who refuses to be touched by strangers at say a spa. These are my little indoor luxuries. Also some people who have the priveledge of being home to quaratine and those who do not can both benefit from this. Ginger is a great source of vitamin C, magnesium (helps with sleep) and is a immune boosting food. Basic vitamins needed to combat most infectious diseases and virus’. It has a long history of being used in chinese medicine, so research away at your leisure.
While you can drink the ginger tea and recieve its benefits, your skin also naturally absorbs moisture all the time, as it is an organ (the biggest organ on the human body). This will greatly benefit those dealing with skin ailments as well. Winter or summer a ginger bath makes me feel like a new person. I love ginger for all of its many uses but one thing that strikes me the most is its vibrant smell. It naturally energizes you while also calms the mind. This tends to give me a nice buzz feeling to sort out my anxiety and other mental issues. No Ginger is not a ￼psychedelic drug.
Of course, please do not ingest or submerge yourself in ginger should you be allergic. Research the pros and cons and the dosage amounts of anything before you attempt. This is harmless and very benefiticial should you take such actions. This does not seem to be a common allergy as Ginger is placed in most chinese dishes and other non asian cultural food cuisines.
