worth a shot...

i know i haven't posted here in ages but seeing as it is a mostly style directed blog i figured this would be worth a try. i need people to fill in this spanish questionnaire for me so that i can use the answers as part of the research portion of my spanish oral presentation on fashion blogs and spanish fashion. problem is i have to give the presentation on tuesday and i still haven't got a single response, so if anyone speaks spanish or knows someone else who could help me out, i'd be forever indebted!! if all else fails i might just post it in english before the weekend is through to see if i can even get some english opinions to work with.

1) Por qué empezaste tu blog de moda y cuándo?

2) Qué crees de la fama que otras españolas han recidibo a causa de sus blogs? (por ejemplo, amlul)

3) Qué piensas de “la moda española”?- de qué consiste? como lo ha cambiado durante los años? existe una moda española “moderna”?

4) Describame tu estilo personal.

5) Piensas que hay un aspecto o una influencia de la moda tradicional española en tu estilo?

6) Estás de acuerdo con la noción que los blogs de moda han cambiado la manera en que vimos la moda y el estilo para siempre, a través de un tipo de “globalización” dónde no existen diferencias entre la moda desde un país al otro? crees que la “globalización” del estilo ha tenido un efecto negativo en la moda española?

7) Qué dirías a alguien que opina que los blogs de moda y la obsesión de moda en nuestra generación están culpable de los trastornos de comer, la falta de autoestima y imagenes corporales negativas etc?


(y por avor, corrigeme si he hecho errores en la lengua!! estoy aprendiendo todavía y necesito toda la ayuda que pueda obtener.)

i'm mostly still hanging out here.

note to self: don't die.

i've been pretty fail at life recently. all those rumours about being a final year student and how it ruins yr general existence are pretty true. having said that, i have (finally) started a new blog. it's probably not going to be very fashion/style centered, unless i can pluck up the courage to hound other people for outfit photographs (which would be ideal). i don't really know what it will be like or for at the moment, but i guess it's kind of exciting not to have any real plan and to just see where something takes you. i guess i feel like i'm going to be more "me" on it. i'm not exactly sure how that will go down, but we'll see.

anyyyway, i know it can be pretty annoying when people do this, but here's the new link:

if yr in anyway interested in what i am/am not up to, click it and add it or whatever. :] but i won't be offended if not. anyone who wants me to link them again on the new blog let me know. i still read every single one of the blogs on my blogroll every day and i adore them all!!

peace, love and waves of nausea.

ps: oh yeah, and i dyed my hair blonde. what do you think??

i'm currently resisting the urge to do something like this to my hair. my friend sophie has a sidecut a bit like mine and when her hair was blonde she dyed the shaved part slush puppy blue. it was ace. by resisting it's important to note that i mean i don't really plan on resisting at all, just tweaking the idea a little.

things i am looking forward to (a lot):

1. the convict comes home in nine days:] this makes me ridiculously happy. i'm on my dad's laptop cos i'm t home and i was looking through all my old photos and suddenly realised that this is the first photo i ever took of him (right hand side, in odd "staring at crotch/floor" pose), not the one i had previously thought. it's at a party about a year and a half ago and i remember we called him the convict cos of his shaved head. do you ever see things like this and find it hard to believe that the person in the photo and the person you know now are actually one and the same??

2. PAVEMENT!! or, hopefully pavement, in may!! they're playing a gig in dublin in may and my bfff is going to try to get us tickets as my birthday present. imagine how close to complete my life would be if i got to see pavement live??...and buy a tee shirt??

yeh, that's right; i used a photograph of a piece of pavement with reference to the band. cos i had it on my laptop...and i imagine the experience of seeing pavement play live would be as exciting as this photograph is to look at (for me anyway). so sue me. :]

trapped in a basement...

this is what ensues if you go to the christmas market for a catch-up over strawberry beer and (too strong) cider, onward to tesco to purchase lemon birthday cake and other assorted birthday favors and then to the empty basement of magazine offices in order to surprise yr friend/the birthday boy at band practice. the last picture is of me in a discarded hallowe'en costume that we found in the basement from a "dead famous" party the magazine hosted in 2007. there is also a video of me smashing one of the cakes in his face, but i won't put it up as i don't think the interwebzz is ready for my horrible northern irish accent. :] especially at the moment as i have a throat infection and sound particularly croaky/husky/manly/sadly not sexy like other girls seem to sound in the same situation. swallowing is difficult. that will be all. :]

oh, also: it turns out this blog ALSO celebrated its birthday yesterday. how apt. so happy birthday blog...i am still not entirely sure of yr purpose. oh well. :]
