Hi Sweethearts!

I always feel the need to mix it up!

A single colour is never enough for me. One pattern is unfulfilling. One language is limiting. Too much safety is stifling.

You know what I love? Individuality.

I love that we can mix the same staples in so many different ways. I love that we move through similiar phases in our lives in such varied manners. I love that we all perceive, think and express our selves in a myriad of ways.

There is inspiration everywhere -mindblowing experiences waiting to be shared, new travellers to join forces with, new kisses to be exchanged, new prints waiting to be created, new dresses to be sewn, new jokes to tell and completely screw up the point of, new thoughts to be pondered.

The way I live my life is specific to me. My fashion an expression of me.

We are all mixing it up -all of the time.

It is the texture of life.

The outfit is typical of me I think, flowers meets stripes: Bolero by H&M and reworked by moi, the dress is my design, bling is mostly H&M and Gina Tricot, the hair controlled still, but rendered completely bloody curly after a full night of salsa dancing. AAAAArriiiiiivvvaaaa!

Thank you for being a part of the texture that is my life, friends!

Tell me, how do you mix it up in life and fashion – in that way that only you can do?

 

I would love to connect with you!

Zen. Ish.

by byanika December 26, 2012 By Anika

Hi Sweethearts. I always liked feng shui. You know; staying zen, living like a strong reed that bends with the wind and then straightens back up again, allowing the corners in my flat to be uncluttered (don`t know if this has anything to do with zen at all, but it sounds like it, no?) (if [...]

The act of transformation.

by byanika July 11, 2012 body issues

Hi Sweethearts!  The fully reckognizing who you are. Who I am. Where I am. How I got here. Where I need to go. The act of transformation. Of my self. Do you ever observe your self? I do. All the time. And then I marvel at the act of it, at the being of forces [...]

Picture perfect?

by byanika April 29, 2012 By Anika

Hi Sweethearts! See me, all decked out in snake? Curly hair out of control, with that funny-looking smile showing teeth and double chin? Wrinkes from crying and laughing? Soft tummy, ass with angles from here to heaven and totally untoned thighs? Yes, I am confident. Now. Yes, I work at it. Every day. Looking at pictures [...]

My body is unique.

by byanika April 5, 2012 body issues

Hi Sweethearts! You know, I have worked really hard for my body. Do you know how many pints of B&J`s I have worked through to get my ass just right? How many laughs it has taken to get those smiley wrinkles? How much dancing to get my legs curvy enough? This is my body. I`ve [...]

Alone. Connected.

by byanika March 27, 2012 By Anika

Hi Sweethearts! Have you ever sat next to a stranger, suddenly feeling aware of a connection to the the other person? Have you ever been in a room filled with people you know, suddenly feeling disconnected from them? Have you ever sat alone somewhere, feeling deeply connected to your self, to something outside your self? I have. [...]

Life is.

by byanika March 20, 2012 By Anika

Hi Sweethearts! You know how people often comment about how something is fair or not? Deserved or not? Relating it to being a good person or not? I think we all are worthy. We should all have high expections. We should reject disrespect. We should all know our worth.  We should all only include people [...]

All kinds of wrong. Made right.

by byanika March 15, 2012 Buttenhancement

Hi Sweethearts! See this jacket? According to the rules for dressing as a curvy woman it is all kinds of wrong. It doesn`t highlight my waist. It doesn`t showcase Thelma and Louise. It does highlight my generous buttocks and hips and legs. Curves and bulk coming together nicely. I felt shy in the jacket at [...]
