... even the orchestra is beautiful!

I know what you're waiting for. You all want to see pictures from our cabaret party last Saturday; I know... but I'm so busy until tomorrow with one of the works for my coolhunting classes, so I cant do the proper entry until tomorrow.

But anyway, I'm showing you some of the pictures of our night that I'm using for my work. Enjoy them!

Life is a cabaret, so come to the cabaret...

Today we're having a Cabaret party, mixed with Eurovision! I've taken some inspiration for my dress from this gorgeous woman that I really adore, Lousie Brookes.

"The Clone Wars"

Following Laia's topic from yesterday, I decided that I want to express my opinion about the un-originality between bloggers and the rising of something that I call "The Clone Wars" (yes, I'm a freak, and I was writing about Lost today, but I'll leave it for tomorrow).

As you all may know by now, I'm studying a postgraduate about coolhunting for the fashion industry. So, first of all, what a coolhunter do?

As a coolhunter, you must observe the mainstream of the streets; I mean, what people wear every day and almost in every occasion, the shapes, colours, clothes, makeup, hairs, shoes; separately and all together... and not only what people wear on the streets of your city, but also all around the world; so as you can imagine, the internet is one of our tools, and blogs, street snaps and things like that are a meeting point of this.

But, as a coolhunter, you work with the things that are different and that may work with the mainstream. Yes, we took something original and use it for inspiring designers, stylish and people from the fashion world. And we can do this because there are original people.

But as Laia mentioned yesterday, I've realized that between bloggers, the almost most "famous" are the ones who copy one style from another: the catalogue of the brand, some idols (Alexa Chung, for example, is one of the models that I've seen that people copy a lot) or another blogger more famous... and I mean, do this people know something about the meaning of "inspiration"?


1. Stimulation of the mind or emotions to a high level of feeling or activity.
2. The condition of being so stimulated.
2. An agency, such as a person or work of art, that moves the intellect or emotions or prompts action or invention.
3. Something, such as a sudden creative act or idea, that is inspired.
4. The quality of inspiring or exalting: a painting full of inspiration.
5. Divine guidance or influence exerted directly on the mind and soul of humankind.
6. The act of drawing in, especially the inhalation of air into the lungs.

So I can't understand why people don't follow bloggers that contains a big amount of this instead of people who only copy looks from magazines or other people... what's the meaning of that? That has no merit for me.

The good part of this is that the "clone bloggers", sooner or later, would be forget... and the original ones would remain in the mind of those who really appreciate originality, the designers and the people who want to innovate into the fashion world, not the only ones who want to be famous. 

A long time ago, I took the slogan from one of the Hugo Boss spots as a way of life. And I'm gonna use it until the end of it. Because fantasy, creativity and originality can live between the mainstream; they're the big flowers in a field full of grass...

Don't imitate, innovate. 

And this post is for those boys and girls who inspires me (as the definition from above said) every day, those normal people who shows their lives in pieces by internet, regardless always being perfect or going into the latest fashion:

My beloved Elin, from Elinkan
Sandra, from Niotillfem; thank you!
The gorgeous Elsa, from Need help dressing?
The original Shan Shan, from Tinytoadstool  
(by the way, she's being ill; I hope you'll recover really soon!)
Marcello Lasco, my particular Voldemort ;) 
(love you dear!)
Xiaoxi Zhang, from It, is Nancy's new blog.

Marmelindela, with her colourful lips and beautiful eyes 
and gorgeous smile!!
And this adorable girl that you all may know

You know what I'm going to say right now, but I think that this time matches perfectly with us. 

We can be more or less "famous". We really don't care. We love fashion and it's our way to express ourselves. And the most important thing: 
We're not here to please you.

Thanks for reading.

This Drama

About This Drama:

"Yes, you know how it works. The beginning, the process, the magic... boring. Then, the promo stuff, the product, the lie. Man, being in a rock'n'roll band is really cool.
This Drama has been out there for a while. Born and raised on a small island in the middle of the Atlantic, we all meet when we were young, at shows, rehearsals, spending our time together in some shitty bands. Sweet.
We have put out a few records and cd's, done some tours, cancelled a couple of shows including a hippy summertime festival. We have played for 25000 people. We have played for 3 people. You all should have seen us play. Always exhausted. We used to wish it would never end.
Many people love what we do. Most hate it. We do not give a shit about 'the scene', about 'the kids'. Yes, especially those wearing their own band t-shirts.

So what are we? what do we do now? The music will flow.

Fuck your local scene. Or something."

Hate the world, it's so romantic (young savage!)

Hot weather is here and my bad temper goes out with it... yes, you know that I'm a "nordic girl", I love winter, I love rain, snow and grey skies... sunny days are ok, but without hot are better!!

A sarcastic hello...

I've discovered Anni B Sweet, a lovely girl from Malaga with an adorable voice that sings cute songs for people who likes the small things. She's made a lovely cover from Take on me by A-Ha, and has got some other cute songs... have a look at them, please!

Punk or mod? Why not both?

Last Saturday I did two things that were so opposite, but both were related to music.

Because If I can't dance, I don't want your revolution...

I think that everybody around here knows about my love for Sweden, almost since I was a child. But the point of this is that, with the past of the time, I've discovered that some of my very favourite bands are Swedish too... so this is a short list I've made for you with them!

The girl who came from Amsterdam (part II of a little Amsterdam's guide)

My second day at Amsterdam started really early in my bedroom... at 7 o'clock in the morning I woke up and dressed up for having a walk before breakfast!

I wish I would know that I didn't need my sunglasses...

The girl who came from Amsterdam (part I of a little Amsterdam's guide)

So I'm back, it's been short but very intense... and of course, with thousands of pictures, I've made for all of you!

And be prepared for a huge bunch of pictures... you're gonna meet Amsterdam through my eyes!

A lovely bike I found

Da da da da da da-da!

On Saturday, Laia and I went to Badalona for seeing one of the best concerts I've ever seen: Love of Lesbian and Sidonie!                                

The concert started at 23'00 pm; one hour later... but with Love of Lesbian, so gorgeous!

And after Love of Lesbian... Sidonie, one of my favourite Spanish bands! This was the 6th time I was seeing them in a concert!
Marc Ros is one of the cutest and well-dressed boys I've ever seen!!

I get the Love of Lesbian's setlist... but... guess what? This wasn't my last concert of the weekend... but you'll have to wait a little bit more to know about this!

Tomorrow I'm travelling to Amsterdam, so I'll be back on Wednesday night/Thursday morning with new pictures and stuff... wish me good luck with the volcano!! I'm so scared about the flight!

And have a lovely and happy Monday... with the Happy Mondays!

Burning all my fucking bras

I had a lovely post prepared for today. Indeed, I had a good day with Ro, having lunch together and going together to our classes... but something that bored me a lot happened.

I've got a very big breast, right? Yes, I know. I look like a fat girl due to that. It's big, it's annoying, and I can't find a proper bra for me. And the ones that are ok... are TERRIBLE. Seriously, try to put on your grandmother's bra, look nice with it, feeling comfortable and sexy... and then we can speak about it.

I mean, is for the big lingerie brands so difficult making a bra wit a lovely colour or print in a BIG SIZE? Is it? And at a good price? H&M and Etam SOMETIMES do this, but not always... Do I have to wear the same type of boring and horrible bra all my life? For God's sake, I'm a young woman, not an old fat lady!!

So... as you can imagine, today I tried to buy a bra. And again, I failed. I went to a special shop that sells bras for girls like me... haha, how innocent I was. Not only they had bras that would scared Lord Voldemort, no; the woman said that it was my size... but my bust looked HORRIBLE!! And should I have to pay more than 50 € for an ugly bra that makes me a bad bust? NO!

So yes, I didn't buy anything (Lord Voldemort would thank it to me...)  and almost cried because I can find anything beautiful on my size... and when I say "beautiful", I mean something so cute like this:

Please, don't try to say "try to lose some weight" or something like that. Last time I tried, I looked as a girl with anorexia but with big boobs... ARGH, no! When I lose weight, I loose from all my body except for the boobs!! AND I CAN'T AFFORD AN SURGERY, RIGHT??

So, what do I want (apart of shouting everybody about this)? I WANT THE FUCKING BRANDS MAKING REAL LINGERIE FOR REAL WOMEN, like me!!!

And you know the funny thing...? I need a swimsuit. Different style, same old problem. Haha...  *sarcasm*

Now I feel much better... and, if you have read until this line... thank you so much, my dear. I really appreciate you all.

Ps: By the way, I'm almost on 200 followers... thank you so much to you all! I know that sometimes I'm a very bad blogger and that my style and my post are sometimes very difficult to understand... but for all of you who's been here with me since I started this journey... I'm preparing something special... my first giveaway!!

With the number 200, you'll know about this!!

Spring, spring go away! I want some rain so I can play!

As you may have noticed, I don't like hot weather; I prefer a cold place... and with rain! Walking under the rain is one of the pleasures of my life... but, as somebody told me; you must wear a black coat and a dark umbrella, just for look like some Edward Gorey's picture, haha!

Girl, you really got me

We've been waiting for a 60s night for so long! And yesterday, we had it! Well, it was only Laia and me, but we had a lovely time by the end of the night...
