Nasty Gal

Nasty Gal. Shophia Amoruso. Film. Vintage.

Nasty Gal is what I want to be. It is where my soul wanders at night releasing, channeling, letting  go of pent up anger mercilessly. It is that safe place where hard rock verging on metal music intertwines its limbs with the fragile and wavering feelings of uncertainty. It is who I am.

I would not necessarily describe myself as nasty to be around, but I stand up for what I believe. I show selfishness, but that is in order to survive. I am loud, I shout and yell to make myself be heard – to not let my voice be drowned in a crumbling society; however, I am not passive aggressive nor point blank violent at all.  Nasty Gal is a title, a simple name, a cover up which provides protection, comfort and security.

It is not my name to take or to keep, but I can borrow it and identify with it. I is a song, a film, a person. It can be perceived as beautiful and brave at times but at other times, it can be misunderstood for arrogance and overconfidence. In reality, it is a delicate rose.

Ambition is the fuel that feeds the consuming fire in Nasty Gal. The everglowing spitting splints of fire ignite the wilderness that governs in one’s heart, like the warm musky air that envelops your senses as soon as you pull closer to the crackling fireplace in the middle of your house. Ambition glints and grins and giggles at you, coaxing you closer – leading you by the nose and if you are not careful and meticulous, it will lead you blindly into despair.

Anger and determination deter the ambiguity of ambition. Anger opens the eyes to reality and determination helps to succumb the everlasting obstacles.

Anastasia

20140317-095423.jpg
I found this makeup brand recently and I fell in love with it. There are a couple of reasons but I think the main one is because it has my name on it ‘Anastasia’. This brand sells everything from makeup brushes to soothing eye-gels… It’s very chique, dainty and very lady-like. Somehow it has a hint of Russian to it. When I use this makeup, I sort of feel like a princess… So glittery, beautiful and irresistible! The packaging is a real jewel! Anyways I’m completely head over heals for this one!
Enjoy!

Happiness and colors

color-guide

 

Colors can be manipulative, in fact they are. For example take yellow: it makes you think of joy, happiness, the sun shining, everything positive. Then take black: it makes you think of sadness, emptiness, rainy days, everything bad. Now let me explain to you how colors can make you happier. Imagine yourself that you got a completely new room (where you would be sleeping in) and you had to choose a color for the walls; now if you choose a green you would be more at ease and happy then if you chose black. Its the same for everything. For example take your desk/office or place where you spend your whole day, is it a boring grayish-black color? If it is it’s probably making your day a little less happier than  it would be if it was completely multicolor, right? So get to work and give away all your boring black pens and buy new flashy, rainbow pens! Add colorful post-its  all over your desk to remind you if there’s something important you need to attend to. If you are not allowed to wear rainbow clothes to work, wear what you would normally wear but put on a neon necklace, or paint your nails a nice warm color (like yellow or red) or mess around with your make-up and swap your black eyeliner with a purple one! (my mom did that and it looks fantastic!) So you can do tiny little things to make your day happier by adding a splash of color here and there!

Enjoy!

Spring is here!

Unknown-5

 

Hello Spring! Finally little pink, red and white flowers will cover the green fields . Finally the shining, golden rays of the sun will pierce their way through the clouds and warm our faces. Finally it’s spring!

This years spring fashion is very colorful and bright. Yellow, denim and anything that’s rainbow is very trendy. I think that everyone has had enough of black, rain and depression so now its time for bright colors, happiness and sunshine! Gold, silver and anything shiny and eye-catchy is also very welcome this spring. Turquoise is also quite popular. Brighten up your day by wearing something neon! Cowboy fringes are seen everywhere on bags and shoes.

FILM: A case of you

images-4Today I watched this film called ‘A case of you’. I found it very interesting because it had a moral to it at the end. The film is about a young writer who falls in love with a coffee-shop girl. One day she gets fired from the coffee-shop so he stalks her on Facebook and finds out all about her interests from her Facebook page (aka her hobbies, interests, books etc…) and tries to be the perfect match for her. In the end he can’t stand to act-up anymore so he just gives up and tells her that he made it all up.  She forgives him and they live happily ever after. The moral behind this film is: never lie – never pretend to be someone who you’re not because you can end up in a very sticky situation.

A must see.

You are perfect

images-3

Everyday we are influenced by amazingly perfect and gorgeous faces on images on the web, ads, magazines… They are all screaming out to us ‘BE PERFECT! BE PRETTY! BE FLAWLESS!’.  And so we compare ourselves to the people on them and think that we’re not perfect like them. We go buy a ton of make-up and apply it on our face to look like that girl on the picture we saw yesterday. Then we come along another girl in a magazine with a beautiful, slim body. We immediately think that we’re fat and we go on a ridiculous diet of consuming only 100 kcal a day… Pathetic. The worst part is that we underestimate ourselves. We are being manipulated to think that we’re worthless and ugly. Just sit and think for a while about all your qualities, all the parts of your body that you admire (like your dimples if you have any), all the personality traits that you are proud of. It adds up to quite a lot doesn’t it? Because you are who you are and you are perfect. No one is allowed to manipulate you with photoshopped pictures yelling to you that you aren’t perfect, because you are. Start to think of yourself in a positive light, start to think that you are gorgeous and perfect because if you think this way about yourself thats how others will think of you. Be confident. You are perfect. There’s nothing to loose.

Bad Habits

Unknown-3

 

We all have bad habits. DON’T try to deny it. And I think it’s time to get rid of them.

My list of bad habits:

1. Biting my nails: Put pepper or chili sauce on the tips of your fingers. DO NOT RUB YOUR EYES.

2. Eating chocolate all day long: Remove all chocolate from the house and try to avoid buying some, and instead go for fruits and salads.

3. Being lazy and staying on the computer: Turn all electronics off put them in a separate room and get on with your work.

4. Being VERY messy: If something isn’t in it’s place IMMEDIATELY put it where it should be.

5. Being completely disorganized: Make a chart, schedule or to-do list for yourself.

That’s about it for me!
