Just making you aware of my new blog. This is more of an everyday blog, so it’ll be updated daily with a load of fashion related things. I’ll still be updating here but only with big posts, so please make sure you follow http://xapplejuicebox.blogspot.com/ 😀
Today I’m really not feeling so good, so I’ve been entertaining myself, creating a new theme! I’ve had the old one for so long now, and considering it’s a cold February, I decided to go with something a little darker. I’ll brighten it up again in spring, but for now this is the new theme.
Do you like it?
Just gathering some feedback, as I’m aiming to really push the blog this year. I’ll also be writing more about life, and not just fashion, so there will be a whole mixture of things on here in the future.
Well after finishing Series 6 of the amazing Dexter, I decided to paint my nails Dexter themed. It’s not really my intention to copy the aesthetic properties of a fictional dead prostitute, however they nails look kind of cute fairy kei, or something, and since I love the series, why the hell not?
These are a combination of Barry M, Miss Sporty and Hot Looks nail varnish, generally the cheapest of the bunch. ‘Hot Look’s is actually the cheapest of the lot in most stores, but I find that it only requires one coat, the colours are vivid, it dries really quick and doesn’t chip that badly. So weirdly I like using them, it’s just matt colour but you can get variations.
In case you are interested, what I can work out from the images is in the TV show, the nails go (starting from thumb) red, yellow, purple, orange, and green/teal/blueish. But the thumb could be magenta while the orange is red, but I’ve done it the way it looks on the barbie hand. (Also excuse the writing on my hand, university room notes and other stuff, lol.)
On Saturday I had a photoshoot with my AP Fruits Parlour in Leeds. It was meant for a competition but I miss calculated the deadline so sadly I didn’t have time to submit anything! So in the future I could probably use it for something else, but for now I’ll just share a couple of pictures we took that day!
The photographer was James Taylor and he’s very talented! Luckily it was pretty warm and sunny outside at the start of the day, which is odd for an English January.
This is going to be basically a collection of my outfits since 2011. So a super mega outfit thread! I’m not sure what kind of style I dress as really, it depends on the day. Some of the cosplay stuff is from Kitacon, most of it is the stuff I wear to Uni, so I’m just gonna slam it all in here. Also, excuse the random messyness in my room; it varies from picture to picture which is quite funny really.
