Candy Static // Slut Shaming and Other Mishaps

This week's song was only suggested to me yesterday but I've already played it about a million times, kinda makes you want to twerk and fist pump at the same time: Attak

It really bothers me when girls call each other sluts.

Firstly: it perpetuates to men they can call girls sluts.
Secondly: it only creates division, jealousy and animosity between women.
Thirdly: why isn't there a word for boy-sluts? Well there is: it's called a bloody legend. Fuck the double standards honestly.

Connie out.

Also I have exiting news!!
Today I uploaded my first youtube video featuring My Shoe Collection!
Let me know what you think :)

This week's post is one of my usual winter daytime outfits.
I absolutely need to stay warm on my upper body so I layer it up with the jumpers and jackets, so the only angle I can work in winter is legs (wrap them in some cool stockings too if you need to!).

Part Two: Dionne

 Hey hey

This week's song: These Eyes (been listening to this non-stop, fresh talent outta Byron Bay)

Responsibilities suck: so I recently went on a lil escape to the coast. 
My days consisted of waking up around noon, going shopping, and coming back to the YHA to eat crappy food and drink dank-ass goon. 
It was really something special. 
I've been trying all my adult life to avoid all my adult responsibilities but they're catching up to me.
Normally I would encourage everyone to keep running, as fast as you can, but I think it's time for me; for you; for everyone, to harden the fuck up.
Do that nasty paperwork/research/errand/job, cos ain't no magical fairy godmother gon do it for you.

Without more ranting, here is part two of my shoot at the park.

Part One: And Thank You Lord For Satan

This week's song is the kickass outro from the last episode of Orange Is The New Black I just watched which was so intense I'm struggling to keep it together: Bad Bad Daddy

This week I learnt:
Don't try to out-happy people.
You don't have to have more than someone to be happier.
You don't have to be better than someone to be happier.
Happiness should be subjective and be quantified only within ourselves.

Enjoy your day loves.

This week's blog post is part one of two shoots at the park.

Lil' candid shot walking to the park with all my gear on.

Tartan Forever

Today's song: 
(Note her kickass eyebrows)

My life has recently been comprised of the following things:
  • Orange Is The New Black- a show about a women's prison. Two words which will sway anyone to watch this: lesbian sex.
  • Topshop- the place has been pleasantly surprising me with good shit.
  • Joey Bada$$- album Summer Knights on replay.
  • The Beginning Boutique Blogger's Breakfast- phenomenal to meet all the creative minds of local bloggers.
  • Fishnets- the best way to assert yourself as a bad motherfucker.
  • Turtlenecks- if a shirt and a scarf had a baby.

Today's Outfit:
Turtleneck Crop from ASOS
Green Tartan Jacket from Op Shop
Blue Tartan Midi Skirt from Topshop

Fishnet Top and Stockings from Ebay

Chunky Shoes from ASOS

Puff Earrings from Angel Puffs

Rings from Piercing Planet/ The Silver Shop

                                           Black Velvet Velvetine Lipstick by Lime Crime

I promise to be posting more regularly, thanks for popping by!

Imma Do Me, Imma Make Mine

Click 4 sum music: You, My Everything

Hai there and welcome.

Recently I've realised I think way too much about other people:
How will they feel if I do this?
Will they be pleased or disappointed?
What will they think of me?
And THEN, comes: what should I do?
It frustrates me that I base so many of my decisions on other people: how can I call myself independent and free-willed? I am done. Done, with being "too nice" and having, at times, an obscenely high tolerance for bullshit. Live your life for yourself and your own pleasures. It's impossible to never step on anyone's toes.

Yung Lean perfectly sums up this entire blog post:
"Imma do me, imma make mine."

Shoutout to anyone who's asked me for advice the last couple weeks and putting up with my super helpful responses:
"fuck em do what you want"
"if you want it fucking take it"
"fuck society"
"just fuck him lol"

Fun fact: my friend's mum once thought I had Tourettes (I wonder why).

This week we have a look featuring some of my new buys:
Hair Fluffies from the one and only @highrack_tm, nab your own here!
Top is from Dollskill.
Jeans were a bargain from the Topshop sale.
Lippy is one I mixed using OCC the lip tars.
My Kanken backpack is my life (thanks diego for the recommendation): it's miraculously easy and comfortable to carry.
Teardrop choker from @sadeyes.apparel


I've been wearing this watermelon top as a bra it's very versatile.

Shoes bought a long time ago from ASOS

Smiling despite freezing my titties off.
