Shopping #9 – Happy Birthday!

Jesus Christ! I just realized it’s been almost a month since my birthday, and I still haven’t taken time to post my birtdhay gifts! Can you believe that? Thankfully, it’s not too late to correct that – I still have a few months left before my next birthday comes around LOL

This year, my birthday gifts were all fashion-related… and extremely cool ;)

Spiked creepers

I’ve wanted to have a pair of creepers for a veeeeery long time, and this particular pair is SO amazing I don’t even know what to say *O* Plus, they have a double platform, which makes them extra-cool. I love ‘normal’ creepers as well, but these are just so edgy and threatening! They strongly remind me of Juria Nakagawa (one of Harajuku’s current street-style superstars) and her love for spiky platform shoes. I can easily imagine her wearing these, and I can’t wait to start doing the same :D

Silver jacket

This cool silver biker jacket is pretty futuristic. It makes me think of Bill Kaulitz back in 2007-2008. I’m not sure if he had one but… oh, wait… :D


Denim cowboy jacket

100% genuine cowboy kitsch. It makes me think of something Dolly Parton might have worn back in the 70s… or maybe right now! LOL It’s a little big for me, but it still looks great, and it will fit perfectly with my future cowboy looks :D


Sons Of Anarchy T-shirt

This one doesn’t need much explanation. It’s an authentic Sons Of Anarchy T-shirt! *___* You all know how much I love Sons Of Anarchy. Now, the rest of the world will know it too :D

Bizarre futuristic leggings

These leggings are really curious. I still don’t know if I’ll be able to wear them out in street or not, but you can be well sure I’ll try ;) These totally remind me of Bill’s gothic chicken (that’s how some fans called it LOL) look at the DSQUARED fashion show. He reused those trousers many times after that, and even wore them on stage during the (extremely short) South American leg of the Welcome To Humanoid City Tour.


My leggings also have a retro-futuristic 70s feel (which is present in the outfits DSQUARED designed for that tour as well) that takes me back to the cosmic age, when Lemmy Kilmister played in Hawkwind and KISS were still a young band trying to make it big.


Nails Inc. London Crackle Effect top coat & Magnetic Polish

More nail polish for my collection! The first one is very similar to Opi’s Shatter top coat, but it has a more liquid consistence, which makes the cracks a little bit thinner, even though the difference is hard to appreciate at first sight :P


[Opi on the left, Nails inc. on the right ;)]

The second one looks pretty interesting. I’ve often seen it advertised in British magazines, and I’ve always felt curious about it, but I never thought I’d actually have the chance to try it, since they don’t sell it in Spain. I only hope my first experience with it won’t turn out to be a disaster! LOL

24 years don’t feel so heavy on days like these ;)

Got it? So, here we go!


Post 11 random facts about yourself

1. I’m currently obsessed with black and gold LOL

2. I’ve just turned 24, which means this is my third Year of the Snake! :D

3. I’m reading a 608 page book in German (it’s a Japanese book by Natsuo Kirino, which makes it even better) without using the dictionary. Surprisingly, I can even follow the plot! I can’t say I understand everything, but I definitely know what’s happening, which makes me extremely proud! I’ve read until page 331 so far ^^

4. The top 3 most played songs on my MP3 player right now are Babe, I’m Gonna Leave You by Led Zeppelin, Brotherhood Of Man by Motörhead and Problem Child by AC/DC.

5. The first band I ever saw live was Apocalyptica, back in 2005. They played in a relatively small venue (1000 people capacity), but they had a pretty awesome show, and their live performance was killer :D

6. I had my wildest experience with drugs at an Iron Maiden concert. People around me were smoking so much weed I got intoxicated. When I finally came out of there, I was completely disoriented. I couldn’t even find my parents’ car, which got me really frustrated. In that moment, I didn’t even understand what was going on. All I knew was reality wasn’t working quite the way it should LOL Thankfully, the effect wore off after a while, and I got back home safely.

7. I have a Washburn PS 1800 and I loooove it :D There’s no other guitar for me.

8. I’m a bit of a compulsive collector. I collect shampoos (I think I have more than 30 different shampoos in my bathroom right now! LOL) and nail polish. If it comes in different colours (or smells), I need to have them all! I also collect Sephora bathroom products, but I only buy one exemplar of each product at a time :P

9. I really love drawing, but I can never find the time to do it with as much dedication as I’d like >_<

10. I can’t wait for the new SimCity to come out *O*

11. I go to bed later and later every day. I keep trying to do something about it, but I just can’t go against my nature. Eventually, I’ll end up going to bed so late it will be ‘early’ again :P


Answer the 11 questions that the nominating blogger asked you

1. Is there any Indie J Rock band you really like?

My knowledge of Japanese rock bands is limited to Dir En Grey, so I think not >_<

2. Tea is everything. So - which kind of tea is your favorite?

Earl Grey, probably ^^ I’m a fan of black tea, in general, and I also love a lot of different herbal infusions :P The thing that’s a little bit of a handicap for me is that I don’t like green tea T___T As a fan of Japanese culture, that makes me feel really embarrassed, but I just don’t like it :$

3. McDonald’s or Burger King? And why? :>

McDonald’s. I’ve never been to a Burger King, so I can’t really judge it (LOL), but, for some reason, my body always leads me back to the clown ^O^

4. Is there a Japanese street style you absolutely don't like?

I think not. I can find things I like in every style of Japanese street fashion I know. Even if there are many things I could never wear myself, I still love how they look on the people who do ^^ Probably, the style that connects less with me is gyaru, but I can’t say I dislike it :P

5. Which is / was your favorite subject at school?

Music! It was the one thing that always came easy to me. I never had problems doing homework (we didn’t get much homework, really :P), and I didn’t have to study for the exams. Plus, my music teacher sincerely appreciated me, which was something very rare. Unfortunately, we dedicated much less time to studying music than to other subjects >_<

6. Choose: One year without your favorite music or one year without your friends?

One year without my friends, totally. I see my friends very rarely, anyway, so I don’t think I would notice the difference (LOL).

7. Do you have a favorite movie? If so, which is your favourite?

I already talked about Terminator II the previous time, so I’ll say The Good, The Bad and The Ugly. Amazing movie, amazing soundtrack, amazing actors, amazing director. Probably the best film ever shot.


8. Is there any food you couldn't live without?

Popcorn! I eat popcorn ALL the time! *O*


9. Which book is the best you've read till now?

That’s hard to tell, but it’s probably Harry Potter. I read the first book when I was 12(?) and I’ve loved every Harry Potter book ever since :)

10. Is there anything you really want to achieve this year?

Finishing my demo! I really hope I’ll be able to make it!

11. Do you have a favourite TV series? If so, which is your favourite?

I have only three words to say: Sons Of Anarchy.

Ask 11 questions to the bloggers that you nominate

For this, I’m going to reuse the questions I asked the last time, since nobody really got to answer them :P

Here they go:

1. Is there anything you want for Christmas (or your next birthday – whatever is nearer), but you know you are not going to receive?

2. If you had to describe your life with a music video, what would it be like?

3. What makes you go CRAZY?

4. If you had a huge, indecent amount of money and had to choose one single thing to spend it on, what would it be?

5. Which was the first record you ever bought? …And the last?

6. Do you usually look for a meaning in your dreams, or do you just think they’re random?

7. What’s the best Halloween/Carnival/whatever costume you’ve had?

8. What were you doing before I interrupted you with my impertinent questions? :P

9. Would you like to change your life in any way? If the answer is yes, tell us how!

10. What’s your biggest talent?

11. Who’s your biggest style icon?


Nominate 11 new bloggers (they must have less than 200 followers) and link their blogs in your post

This is always the hardest part for me, because I don’t really know too many bloggers who have less than 200 followers >_< I could only come up with four, but it’s still better than the zero I proposed last time!
And the nominees are:


Well, this is it ^^

I’ll be back soon with more outfit & shopping posts, so stay tuned!
