I’m bad at this…

…whole blogging and updating thing. From now on I’ll stop saying that I’m back and that I’ll improve the update, and instead I’ll blog when I feel like it. I get bored so easily, so I can’t have that “I have to update” thing going on, then I’ll stop completely. So from now on, the update may be non-existing some days and super good other days. I hope you’ll stick around, because I love hearing your opinions and views! 😀

Song of the day – Let’s kill tonight

Panic! at the disco is one of those bands I’ve been half in love with for years. Not a huge stan, but I like them and their music and hope to get to see them one day. One of my favorite songs by them are “Let’s Kill Tonight” off of Vices & Virtues. Give it a spin or two!

Yesterday

Here’s a video of my friend’s competition yesterday. Her pony is really young and inexperienced, so I think they made an awesome job! It had been raining right before, meaning everyone crowded into the “riding house” (Haha my English vocabulary lacks a bit) and the pony got a bit overly excited. You can spot me with the camera in the beginning, doing my duty and taking some photographs of the equipage. 🙂

I’m back!

Sorry that I haven’t been posting for two days. I’ve been busy! Yesterday I got to drive quite some distance (almost 70km in one go!), we had guests and then I was off to a friend. Today, I’ve been grooming for said friend (In other words, I helped her out some when she competed her pony today), had another long drive and rode my own horse! 🙂 I’m really tired, so I will post about our jumping tomorrow. I actually got some footage so I’ll post that too.

So, I’m alive and well, and will get back properly tomorrow. See ya!

Inspiration or copycat?

I think it’s fun with fashion. I’m not some super fashionista-“Always-look-fabulous” kind of guy, but I do enjoy to dress up and look nice. I also think it’s so much fun to look at fashion, no matter male or female. But one thing I often get annoyed by, is the constant debate about copycatting.

In my opinion, it’s hard to be a copycat. A copy is a perfect clone of another person’s outfit, in my view. If you take inspiration from certain garments or wear the same shirt once, that’s not copycatting. Let me give you an example.

pinkii

Here we have Jennifer Lopez and Brooklyn Decker sporting the very same Michael Kors dress. This is what I would classify as a copycat, because they both wear the exact same dress, pretty much in the exact same way.

Here we see Demi Moore and Ciara. How about this then? Well, I don’t think this is copycatting. It’s not the same dress, although they are similar. They’re also styling it differently. This is taking inspiration from another, but in my view this is not copycatting.

What makes me irritated is that people seem so see inspiration as something bad. Why’s that? In the end, if we don’t make all of our clothes ourselves, we have to buy from brands. We have to be in some way or another influenced from what other people think about fashion, because they’re the ones creating it. Plus, how fun isn’t it to look what others are wearing, thinking about what you like and how you could incorporate that into your own style? I’m a frequent drooler on the pinterest “men’s fashion” category, and I have no shame in that. So many men clothes that I would have nothing against having in my closet! What’s wrong with that?

And if you, just as me, is stuck to just look at fashion but can in no way afford it, I have two things to say:

1. Pretty much no-one can afford the stuff walking on runways. However, there are cheaper brands that take inspiration from the runways, or you can ofc DIY!

2. No one wears the stuff that actually goes down the runway, I mean they’re SO unrealistic and avant garde that no-one could ever wea-

…oh.

What I wanted to say, long story short, is that there’s nothing wrong with taking inspiration from the runway, celebrities or just ordinary people. You can pretty much never copycat anyone unless you do it intentionally, so stop worrying and go WILD with your fashion!

Stunning!

These amazing pictures are from Adam’s gigs with Queen last summer. The photos belong to the photographer, do not remove the water marks. I think they’re absolutely amazing, both because of the man but also from a photographer’s pov. I’d love these as huge prints on my wall!

DIY Idea

A few days ago I found this really simple but cool looking DIY idea. It’s written in both Spanish and English so most people will understand it! Lucky me managed to find a grey t-shirt the other day hidden in my closet, that got a very similar makeover… I haven’t ironed it yet, but I’ll post the results as soon as I can. In the mean time, check out the original tutorial 😀

Driving

I’m going to get to drive in a few minutes, so I’ll keep this short. At the moment I’m taking all chances possible to drive, since I have my exams in less than a month. On the 14th I have two lessons with a professional teacher, and also an education thing I have to do. On the 16th I write the theory part of my exam, that I now need to study to like a bitch in heat. On the 19th I have two more lessons, and on the 20th I have my driver’s exam. So, if everything works out the way it should, I’ll have my license on the 20th of August! Pray for me, haha.

Now I really need to go, I’ll be back in a few hours with some opinion posts and DIYs! 🙂

Song of the day – Love wins over glamour

“Mah man” got to sing the official life ball song this year. (Which strangely enough was never released as a single…) It’s glam, it’s Adam and it’s so catchy!
