Let’s blog about fashion, baby

Time to turn this blog into a fashion blog, we need to dial things up a bit!

EBay is the ultimate clickbait. It’s far worse than Buzzfeed articles, no joke! Especially when you get stuck in Chinese fashion shops, they are just BURSTING with cool expressions in made up English. Well THANK YOU west for tattooing our language on your bodies in the 90′s like idiots, now we’ll wear your language however we want!! HA!

All of these are found browsing words like “fashion top cute summer shirt design funny”, enjoy the endless scrolling. Kthxbai!


Let’s start with some minimalistic design.




Business tip: Bur your kere.


Thanks for reminding me of the fact that humans are awful.


*slowly backs into apartment, locks door*




Treat yourself to some ChenKe 365!

..You beat me to it.


Okay now you’re just making me uncomfortable


Who needs purpose in life anyways? *english handwritten*


I feel your confusion Bart


Yeah babe! Free! Open Heart! KILL.




Me neither.


That’s it, I give up.

YouTube Tip: The history of makeup

Here’s a fantastic video series by Macshadowcombos I stumbled upon today, you get a lot of great information about the makeup and beauty culture of the 1900′s. Watch and enjoy, I sure did!

I want your skulls

Let’s honor some amazing horror punk, shall we? The love behind the fact that I have black face paint in every orfice of my head goes out to you, Misfits friends.


Demon I am and flesh I peel
To see your skin turned inside out, ’cause
Gotta have you on my wall
Gotta have you on my wall, ’cause

I want your skulls
I need your skulls

Makeup doesn't have rules. The only person who decides what's right or wrong and if you're wearing it or not is you, and that's where my job as a blogger comes in handy. Use my experience as a guide or an inspiration towards finding your own way.
