Fur obsessed

I don't know about you guys but I am in L O V E with all things fur.
Like seriously how can you not?! 

Personally, I have no problem with people wearing both real and faux fur. To me everyone has the right to use whatever they want and if they are comfortable in wearing real fur then its up to them. PETA to me has no right to throw paint or any means of sabotage as a way of showing awareness. I know that they meant well and they want to prevent the killing of animals just for their fur but I just don't agree to the way of how they're showing that feeling.

I have both real and faux fur. I've heard people say how beautiful it is, and I've heard how they were so disgusted by the fact that its real fur. My theory is, the animals died for nothing if you don't buy them in the end they'll end up on someone elses hands anyways. I only have one real fur item, its a bag and its named Quinta. Yes I know I sound like a freak but to me that bag is everything! I've been taking care of it for a year already now and I can't say how much I love it to pieces: ) Quinta my little baby.

Currently I have 3 fur coats and 1 fur vest in my closet, all of them fake. I know that's already a lot but I am planning to expand my fur collection with unique colored ones that really stands out! And also a parka with a fur hoodie, but that is for a later purchase: p

This last green one is exceptionally beautiful. I would totally look like Kermit the frog but who fucking cares? I can rock this one out of its own fur! For my next purchase I would aim to get a blue or a green fur coat, somewhere in between like turquoise would also be perfect!

Empty dreams

See, I'm not leaving you guys with empty promises this time.
Haha, as if actually someone's waiting for a post from me.

Anyways, moving on. As some of you might know or notice, last year I had extensions braided onto my hair. I was so obsessed with the trend ombre-coloured hair that I had to do it. Now that my extensions are off it basically left me with 3 drastic changes; my hair is short and shapeless, my hair is EFFING thin, and last but not least, I no longer have that ombre hair look. 

Now I know you're all probably saying: go get the ombre hair back, what's the big deal, just get it already! and so on. One problem, my hair is frikkin' SHORT. I haven't seen anyone with short hair doing the ombre thing so I'm a bit scared to do it. 

But now that I think of it again, ah fuck it, why not? I've always said this and I will say it again, I'm still 19, I have a few years left till' I actually settle down with a guy and get married so I might as well try all the crazy hairstyles I've always wanted. I did pink before so I'm going to go with blue this time.


I'm going to try the last look out. Imagine my shoulder length hair with a straight-on color blocking ombre hair. How awesome would that be? 

Some pretty exciting news on our jewellery brand Rutile Twin, we have unveiled in our facebook page that we're going to open the store sometime this/next week! YAY so happy it's finally happening. We're doing everything we can to obviously make this store special to all our customers, but for now, like our facebook page and follow our tumblr: )

P.S, I will be writing/posting an entry at least every once a week, and will try to post once every 2-4 days. It will probably be my daily outfits and things that I want or sometimes just beautiful imagery so look out for some amazing-ness that will happen very very soon!

Dead and Alive

Hello, not interested, goodbye. 

Okay okay I'm sorry! All those false promises I've been making to upload a new blog post is pretty much a bust. Last year I've realised that there were only 11 blog posts in total. Are you seriously kidding me, Mel? Out of the 365 days you could blog, goodness gracious, only 11 days were productive. 

I don't want this post to be regret and promise and then yes all of this starts to repeat itself again so lets just get it onnnnnnn, baby!  

Me and my friend Emma have been insanely obsessed (okay, maybe that's a little bit too much) with crystal rings since last year. A year quickly passed after that initial thought of doing this, when suddenly it just sparked out of nowhere again at the start of 2012. We finally got serious and got down to business! 

Rutile twin is basically two or more crystals that forms in a repeated formation, in other words, these crystals mirror each other and form the exact same thing. Our jewellery line is all about one-of-a-kind. When you purchase one of our items, you will never see the same girl wearing the same thing, it's totally exclusive: ) You always see crystal rings and they always cost a bomb so you never buy them, ours are generally in everyone's price range, there is always something for you!

Oh wow, right? I know you're feeling all jittery and happy inside. This is just a sneak peak of what we will have in store. So seriously! Stay in tune for the launch of our website. But for now, like our facebook page and follow our tumblr!
