I've moved on...
...to a different domain. Why, what were you thinking? The truth is, I just woke up one day and decided it's time for a change—a metamorphosis, if you will; or, in layman's terms, if Britney can shave her head, then maybe so can I? Nevertheless, it's been a rather handsome 10 years of talking to you, and thank you for putting up with all my moodswings and terrible dad jokes. Fear not! The hormonal imbalance and jokes are more terrible on CUBICLE, see you there.

The Circus Bookazine Blogslam was truly unlike any event I’d attended. The bookazine is a blogger-only publication, and the first issue was on Fashion – so I’d expected the usual roster of fashion bloggers with the latest of Jeffrey Campbell trotters around the Asahi beer lake, but the entire night I didn’t see a single familiar face. I attended as a contributor after having sent a few shots under the theme of DIYA: Do It Yourself Alone, featuring GyuEllen and Daniela from the F Blog. But these bloggers wrote about politics, human rights, relationships, feminism… and some of the things they read out during the blogslam competition, my my, couldn’t keep my Vitamin Water booze down. There are just so many more ways to blog than posting pictures of what you wore, check out Scalene Adventure for example – the readers decide the fate of the storyline, now how neat is that.

This might come across as blasphemy from someone who is allegedly a ‘fashion’ blogger, but I never read the contents of Vogue or Elle, simply because I don’t agree to the perishable lifestyle they promote. This Bookazine on the other hand, I’d like to sit down one day and read it cover to cover. The articles are smart, humble and written with humility – rare trait in fashion, wouldn’t you say? My favourite quote must be from one of the articles by a 19-year-old model: ‘I don’t consider myself a model; the word ‘model’ means something that should be followed for its perfection, and no one is perfect.’

The bookazine is in both German and English, available here! Thank you Anke & Flo & Circus Team for the hard work and Flo for editing the video!

Noticed I was singing the ABC song while painting this, is that why I only know the song up to J?

Something about rainbows remind me of scales – the ABC’s, the 123’s, the Do-Re-Mi’s – and if those are building blocks to amazing reads and Kiss from a Rose‘s then what will my nails build today?! <Insert corny life lesson> Probably just a few snags on my tights and nail-marks on important documents. Reminds me of them Crayola markers that smell good but don’t taste good.

Quiz: Who’s holding the camera!!??    Awesome answers in upcoming post.

I’m about to crack one of those hilarious jokes again… just crawled home from Paris.

Why did the chicken… Nevermind, I’ll just go to sleep and you can retain that last strand of respect for this blog. I’ll ask of it next time when I feel the need to sell your information in exchange for free pair of Uggs.

Thanks Kit for the photos! Taken @ Arcadia SS11Pressday

Should’ve left 5 minutes ago for a daytrip in Paris so will keep it short. A few interesting pieces found at Arcadia Pressday from the Wallis SS11 range. For those who aren’t familiar with the highstreet brand, it’s another store that doesn’t appeal me for some reason, but their accessories range from £10-£30. The bracelet/necklace with chain fringing is looking rather promising…

Le goodbye!

That’s French, right?

A few friends over brunch, a bit like a scene in Sex and the City; except tartines refer to the eating type and Mr Big is a name for the soupbowl latté. All we really have in common is the fact that we have blogs, yet there’s always much else to talk about, like how Kit wants to marry a jar of marmite or how Jill used to be a police officer in NYC in the naughties. Last bit not really true, but I think it was something similar, she always has a story to tell which makes us wonder just how many lives she’s had until now.

Thank you Kit for the outfit photos!
