By the order of the Peaky Blinders
I’m back, causing some trouble winkwink but this time in a double…
Let me introduce you to Michael Shelby.
He is a charismatic man in his 50s with a great sense of humour (even though I don’t always admit it to him).
His style inspired me since I was a little girl and his wisdom shaped me as a person.
Let me introduce myself.
My name is Isabell Shelby, I’m twenty-two years old and I love to say that I have a great sense humour too laughs .
As we’re back on the telebox (I love this word!) today, I wanted to style two looks that I like to call “Double Trouble” featuring my badass father and “Shelby Girl Chic”.
So I hope you enjoy!!
Curly Hair. Colourful Make-up. Scrunchies. All the Scrunchies. Oversized Hoops. Pink and Red. High waist everything. Denim. Bodysuits. Laura Branigan, Diana Ross, Chaka Khan. Oh and Stranger Things…especially STRANGER THINGS!
Well…my summer 2019 turned out to be a summer of the 80s and I kinda love it.
Electric, funky, wild and colourful. The 80s. I’m feeling it. I’m totally feeling the 80s, whether the music or the films or the fashion, I’m a lil obsessed smiles …
So I’ve styled three outfits inspired by this glorious era.
Outfit number one is called Highway to hell (even though ACDC released this song ‘79 buuuuut to me that still counts hihi )
Outfit number two is called Izzy Roses Eyes cause you know, my outfit so my eyes…winkwink
Outfit number three, well…all I’m going to say is Girl’s just want to have fun, right?
Hope you enjoy these outfits to the max hehe cause I find them pretty rad ;)
Hey Hey and welcome to my personal obsession with pink or rather in this case…NEON pink.
I can’t believe that I’m saying this but it’s true I’m totally obsessed with neon pink and it’s so ridiculous because a few years ago I detested neon and wasn’t really the girl that wore or liked pink at all.
Well, I liked the colour on other people but not on me. I always felt pink is the colour for blondes but it was and still is the favorite colour of my mum, so I associate the colour pink with her.
Neon is also quite hot right now but I don’t really care for that. I just love what I love and so wear what I wear. And I’m loving neon pink at the moment.
So I wanted to bring an old category back which is called Fashion Remix :)
Fashion Remix stands for picking up a ‘trend’ or a specific kind of style, colour or tailoring I’m inspired by or in love at the moment and make my own remix out of it.
Therefore I want you to present my three outfits featuring some neon brights in each of them.
In Outfit number one I literally created a neon outfit with gold details.
In Outfit number two I put the focus of neon into my bag and kept the outfit in neutral colours.
Blazer: René Lezard | Trousers: Guess | Shoes: Corello | Sunnies: Asos | Bag: Prada
In Outfit number three I wanted to make my eyes pop smiles so for this one I put my eye make-up in the spotlight and kept the outfit simple in black but with a little colour bunch on my feet.
Jumpsuit: Charity Shop | Shoes: Buffalo | Bag: Vintage Joop (from my mum hihi) | Eye-Make-up: HudaBeauty
Hello my name is Izzy and I have an unusual obsession with neon pink.
I’m actually really excited for my next bizarre obsession and when the time comes, I defo let you know.
Until then I rock my neon pink ;)
Oh wow…I don’t even know where to begin…
A very long time no see, but I’m back…for good or to say it with Elton words:
I’M STILL STANDING BETTER THEN I EVER DID…
and I’m feeling like a little kid.
So this is a new Izzy’s Icons all about Elton John’s AMAZING sense of fashion. I feel so inspired by this beautiful human being. I’ve cried, laughed and smiled SO MUCH while watching the film and I truly felt a connection.
Elton John was and definitely is one of the most remarkable artists on our planet!
I feel so happy, reverent, powerful and most importantly like MYSELF smiles …
So I’ve styled six outfits inspired by my six favourite songs ( even though I love them all laughs ).
1. Honkey Cat
2. Rocket Girl
3. Tiny Dancer
4. Don’t go breaking my heart
6. Saturday Night’s alright (for fighting)
…La lalalala la lalalala la lalalala la…
At the end I would like to say…
Thank you for ALL of your loving
Thank you for ALL of your tears
Thank you for ALL of your kindness
Thank you for being here.
I want to break free.
I want to break free.
I want to break free from your lies
You’re so self satisfied I don’t need you
I’ve got to break free
God knows, God knows I want to break free.
That’s exactly what I want…to do. I want to break free from all the self doubts, negative energy and free myself from people that are in my way and give me the feeling that I’m not good enough…BECAUSE I AM.
I am good enough and I want to break free to pursue my dreams and work hard to achieve my goals.
I want to break free from all kinds of stereotypes people have about me, about us, about the world as it is.
I want to break free to tell my own personal story, to show my real self and be proud of it.
I want to break free to fall in love, to be happy, to be sad and cherish the special moments.
I want to break free because it is my right to be free. I want US ALL to break free because NO ONE should not be free. Simple as that.
I love you Freddie. I love you since the day my mum introduced me to you when I was just a little girl. Ever since then you keep inspiring me every single day, with your voice, with your style, with your endless talent and most of all with your story.
I love you Freddie and I will never forget you.
Long live Queen.
La da da

Izzy’s Icons, yeah
Well hello there and welcome to a new lil project I wanna start in 2019 called “Izzy’s Icons” smiles …
I love fashion and I love people so I thought I wanna recreate looks, attitudes and styles from people that I admire, feel inspired by or just basically feel happy and strong when I think about them.
First up on the list and she is a really special person to me and also today is or rather was her birthday…the 19th of January…The incredible Janis Joplin.
You were and you always will be one of the brightest stars in the sky. I love you for your voice, cause I always get goose bumps listening to Pearl and the Emotions are uncontrollable…I smile, feel powerful, then I wanna cry and at the same wanna dance…all at the same time.
I think this is freedom - to be able to feel everything all at the same time.
You are one of my biggest inspirations you beautiful soul and even though you left us way too soon, you’re still there…so Happy Birthday Janis.
Oh well hello there, its me ya space princess winkwink…
Just landed on earth and now I wanna show you my last fit from my lil project which actually was one of my highlights this year… smiles
Elias the astro boy, I absolutely love ya style!
This look really made me feel fierce and kinda special. I got soooo many looks on the street which made smile so that was a lovely bonus.
Also I loved the scenery. It was so clean and almost “dead” but not in a bad way. It actually is a historical place and the message on the wall “Nie wieder Krieg (War never again)” literally gave me goosebumps…
I truly felt the energy.
Now I’m back again on my lil spaceship and I have to say that was real fun and yeah I can’t wait to do maybe an other round in the future.
You’ll hear from me but until then…
Kisses to you in the world.
Bucket-hat: Asos | Specs: Sportsshop | Top: Zara | Trousers: Asos | Bag: Escada (Vintage) | Shoes: Converse
A retro dream on a summers afternoon in my fave park…could it get any better?
I don’t think so smile …
In todays post we’re talking 70s greatness.
I was so excited to put this outfit together. I wanted it to be airy, elegant and timeless. I love the light colour combination cause it really made me feel like I was having a good time in the beautiful south of France. And that was my total intention… laughs
I smiled a lot as well. It was a beautiful day and looking through all the pictures again, I really felt the magical energy once more.
I truly felt the luck…
Blouse: thrifted | Trousers: Asos | Shoes: Heine | Scarf: Zara | Bag: MCM | Sunnies: Crap Eyewear
Well hello there and welcome to the colour of black and its beauty…
Todays post is all about black, so you actually could say we’re talking:
All black everything. (…yeah smiles)
At first when I was planning out my outfits, I thought “Well, yeah Dex is going to be the easiest cause I mean everything in black, right?…das easy…”
Well, let me tell you sumthin: It’s not easy at all… laughs
To be honest with you, I’ve probably struggled the most with putting this fit together because when you go for ONE COLOUR, you have to make interesting with textures, cuts, shapes etc. .
In the end, I was actually was very happy with my final choice and let me tell you something…I felt the POWER OF BLACK!
Dex, you Master of Black…You truly inspired me and I loved expressing an other side of me! smiles
I’m so excited, I’m not gonna lie smiles…
It all started earlier this year when I was browsing through YouTube and found a video about Boys styling a Girl…the streetstyle way.
Since that day I’m a Fan.
I’m talking about PAQ starring Shaq, Dex, Danny and Elias.
I just love the total vibe and yeah of course the fashion aspect and the fact that the boys are so different from one and another.
Diversity and Variety is all what I’m here for!
So I just set myself a lil challenge and styled four outfits, shot in four different locations, picked out four songs and yes just got started.
This Fashion Remix Episode is all about:
Streetstyle inspired by four incredibly stylish men and interpreted by me…Izzy winks
P.S. Head over to my Instagram if you wanna watch my IGTV on “why I exactly chosen this outfit” double winks
Oh well, hello there or should I say…Servus, grüß Gott!! (oh my god, I did not really say that…laughs)
So…One month no read…I don’t know what to say really other than “where have my head been lately?”
I don’t know to be honest and also there was just so much going on that I wasn’t focussed on the things that I wanted to be focussed on but after this little (but kind of long) break I’m really figuring stuff out and feeling inspired again which is a lovely thing, right?
So today in honor of The Octoberfest which actually ended yesterday lols I wanted to show you three outfits that are inspired of the traditional gear that people wear in the South of Germany on a day to day basis……just kidding (but not really) smirks
But honestly, I never thought that I would find you much fun in dressing “traditionally german”. Still, I find it a bit weird when I see people for example at the Octoberfest being dressed in like “Lederhosen and Dirndl” but I love to challenge myself and take a piece or even an outfit and make it my own. I don’t like this kind of “costume vibe” where people put these traditional pieces together and look literally disguised.
And I don’t mean that one can’t wear it - you know my philosophy: Everyone can wear whatever they want - Just make it your own… winks
So enough of that, now I want to show the outfits:
…Cause I had so much fun shooting them!
Outfit Number One: Complementary Temptation
I love styling complementary colours because its bold but at the same very harmoniously. I saw this “janker” (cardigan/jumper) in a charity shop and absolutely fell in love with a the colour, b the flower details and c the fact that it doesn’t really fit me because its way too big but I love that. I paired it with my lederhosen (oh god still can’t take myself seriously when I say it out loud..laughs) and a lacy bra to add a lil feminity in all that oversizeness.
Outfit Number Two: My heart will go on
Not only do I find this title quite funny, but also I really can’t believe that I’m saying this but from all the three fits (the third is a good one too winkwink) I think this is my fave and funny enough its the most traditional out of the three…
I just love the cosiness that this “janker” offers and also the fact that I bought it back in june when I was in Mayrhofen, Switzerland in a little shop where everything was handmade and so beautiful to look at.
And again oversize is the way to go - I really liked the way how the mansshirt was worn with the cardigan and pairing it with the jeans shorts and wooly socks made the look complete.
Outfit Number Three: Red Light
Last but definitely not least me in all black with a red light in there…Oh I love this one.
It’s for sure the one out of the three where I’ve decided to make it the most “wearable” and what I mean by that is that you can’t really tell by the first look that it is traditional inspired and I absolutely adore that. Because I love taking whether its a classic piece or a vintage piece organ in this case a traditional piece(s) (if you couldn’t already tell, it’s the jacket and the blouse underneath winks) and make it look first of all my own and second of all modern.
So in conclusion I just wanna say…September wasn’t really my month and the downs were a bit more permanent than the ups but I’m really looking forward to October and in general the lovely autumn season. I already have some nice ideas and finally can’t wait to take some time to edit my lil project I did in the end of august which I’m sooo excited about to finally share with you.
But for now - Octoba Fiesta everyone, lets enjoy this lovely season.
(All the outfits are styled with whether old pieces or things that I bought from charity shops or in cute little shops where they literally make only one piece at the time)
So today we’re talking body…language…yeah… smiles…
First of all I have to admit that I’m absolutely in love with how the pictures came out cause when you have an actual picture in your mind of something you want to create, the perfectionism can most of the times be in your way and in the end you’re disappointed cause most of the times that picture in your mind will only exist in your mind (especially when you shoot on film…Jesus mother of Mary laughs…)
Anyways, this blog post is called “Body” and I love it cause I love puns and the fact that I want to talk about bodies wearing a body makes me giggle every time thinking about it..
Why do I wanna talk about this?
A: The constant comparison of our physical appearance is pretty much at its peak at the moment.
B: Women are still to this day treated like objects…when they’re “attractive” - “in the eyes of society”
C: Question for B: What is attractive?
D: Nudity…interesting topic…so taboo but at the same time so desirable.
Okay…this actually is ridiculous cause I don’t understand it and it’s a fact that I don’t really have one but for some reason my most liked picture on instagram is one where you see my “bum” in a pair in Levi’s………..and every now and then, when I post a classic holiday bikini pic, it instantly gets much more attention then any of my other pictures.
I think the answer for this is still: Sex sells.
Something that on one hand bothers and on the other hand fascinates me.
Well, it bothers me cause I love clothes laughs and I find it very frustrating when you put all your creativity into something but it doesn’t really get the attention that you have wished for and then you do let’s say something a bit more “revealing” and it might get surprisingly a lot of attention and then you ask yourself (Well, me at least laughs) Why? ...again.
It fascinates me cause of its simplicity. We all have a body obviously and human love to look at other bodies. (I’m constantly blushing writing these lines but at the same time enjoying it cause it’s a pure topic and literally human.)
This really goes hand in hand with Self-Love. Bodies are beautiful in my opinion. No matter how they look or not look, they’re beautiful. I see them like an art piece, cause yes we all have a body but we all have different ones. That’s the beauty of individuality and we should embrace that or better still, we should celebrate that!
Acceptance is the first step for a more positive mind set. I know, it’s hard sometimes and I’m also still on my learning path with it but you have to remember this:
Just BE YOURSELF because everyone else is already taken!
And to be honest everyone else is boring smiles you should be proud of YOUR beautiful masterpiece called body and sorry (but not really) all these fucking “perfect” body images you see nowadays in the media and in magazines are not real cause perfection in my opinion is imperfection and it truly is a decision that depends on you:
Are you perfect?
The answer is…YES you are.
“Revealing” fashion in public.
Oh dear god…this is a topic these days that makes me really angry and when I say angry I mean it! (Full stop. – just to make it clear.)
From a feminist perspective, we have the freedom to wear whatever WE WANT as a woman. So if we wanna be a bit more sexy on one day, I don’t wanna hear anything. If we don’t wanna wear a bra and it could be that the nipples flash through, I don’t wanna hear anything.
…Cleavage…I DON’T WANNA HEAR ANYTHING!
Basically you should really think twice what you say to a woman cause we aren’t objects! We are beautiful, I know smirks but we are humans and humans must respect each other!
We should be allowed to wear or not wear whatever we feel comfortable in whether you like to be a lil nuder than others or be completely covered – it is your own decision and no one else’s business!
So lets feel free, enjoy life and start getting those beautiful bodies moving…
I am a girl and I have mood-swings. For a long time now I wanted to capture them because I feel like every mood inspires me in a special way. I think when you grow up, it's so interesting to watch yourself react to certain people, things and situations.
I'm a very emotional person and I'm not scared to show that off. When you start seeing something beautiful in everything, life will literally start being art - and that's what I'm here for...
I'm a girl in her twenties and really discovering my personality each and everyday a bit more. So as an observer of myself I've noticed that these four moods are the frequent ones that come over me...
today I felt...
Me and my moods...oh well...but remember it's totally fine to feel one or the other.
Cause the day will come where you gonna see the sun and have some fun...again *winkwink*
Thoughts and Pix by me, Izzy (hihi)
Fashion Remix London Edition: I'm going to run you through my outfits that I wore and totally loved - and maybe by the end you'll see things through a bit clearer...*smile*
PANTS: Bike Shorts
Hello my name is Izzy and I’m mixed-race.
I was born and raised in Germany but my mum is Brazilian and Portuguese was the first language I learned as a child. I actually first learned German in Kindergarten.
And this is where everything started feeling different for me. I was always unlike them. I didn’t talk like them. I didn’t like the food they liked (not at all I actually to this day I can’t stand German food laughs) and I obviously didn’t look like them.
I felt and still feel to be honest like a stranger in my own country…when I was younger my biggest desire was to have darker hair and dark eyes and tanned skin. Why?
Because all the women that I admired including my mum and sister were much “darker” than me.
As much as I felt like a stranger in Germany, I totally felt the same in Brazil.
To be exact I felt German in Brazil and Brazilian in Germany.
I’m a very calm person but there are a few topics that make me go furious and if you want to provoke me just ask me why my sister is “so dark” and I’m “so pale”. Jheeze, just writing it down makes me go arrrrgh laughs
Brazil is a VERY diverse country with a lot of influence from everywhere really. So as a result I have everything in my family starting from alabaster ‘til milk chocolate smirksso can you please shut your mouth and get educated about diversity in certain countries on our world because that’s how it is nowadays.
You probably asking yourself now…why the hell is she telling us all that?
Well, my simple answer is Football World Cup 2018.
My most asked question in this time: On whose side are you?
My answer…I’m for both because I’m Half Half.
One of the worst days in my life so far was four years ago…that horrifying match between Brazil and Germany playing in Brazil…2:7…no comment…
I hated Germany for doing that to Brazil and I hated Brazil for not doing better.
In the end I was very proud and happy for Germany winning the World Cup but that made me realize one thing – I don’t have to choose. I’m both and one thing that I already knew when I was nine years old was that in my future, I don’t want to decide on whether I’m more the one or the other because I’m fuck yes both of them and I want to express that somewhere where I could start totally new as Izzy…the girl with German and Brazilian roots…can you guess where that is? ...*Smiles*
“Sun is in the sky oh why oh why do I wanna be anywhere else?” – Ldn by Lily Allen
I think that’s something only mixed-race people can understand…it’s a curse and a blessing all at once but nowadays I see it definitely more as a blessing because that is what makes me unique, that is what makes me look different to others and that is what truly made me be a cosmopolitan person.
This is what I am – I’m Half Half.
MAKE-UP: KIKO MILANO
A big thank you again to my dad for sponsoring this post - your shirts are the best.
So today I thought to celebrate my 10thpost, we should take the mask off and get a bit more personal.
I've been doing this for 2 and half months now and I love it so far. The combination of writing and photography – in particular film photography is just fantastic. I’ve never been that creative in my live so far.
To say it in short words…I’m happy.
Starting off with an obvious one:
1. I love writing…especially poems…uh I love it so much. I wish I could talk for the rest of my life in form of poems. That would be dreamlike.
2. (This one kinda goes hand in hand with the first one) I love it when people talk like they’re from an other century…extreme polite and eloquent.
3. I love talking with my eyes and in form of gestures – on other note I HATE smalltalk. And talking on the phone…Omg hate it! laughs
4. I get very creative when I’m sad or melancholic and very motivated when I’m happy.
5. I have my best ideas when I’m out and about or on the tube cause people I see doing their daily life brings me the greatest inspiration. Why? Because it’s honest and real.
6. I love it when a guy calls his girl “beautiful” – “Hey beautiful.” (That literally gives me Goosebumps) – gentlemen fascinate me.
7. I very easily get bored: bored of the same food, of the same style, of the same music, of the same place. Life means development and change for me. I called it the Art of Living – the living Art to try out something new and also be someone new. That is what I LOVE about fashion. I can literally be a different person every single day but at the same time it’s always me - just in a new facet.
8. My music taste is very broad… From Mozart to Skrillex everything is included. LaughsBut besides that I like to do this weird thing of keeping it most of the times by myself what I’m listening to…I don’t know why I like to do that but its like my own little cosmos then, it’s a kinda “me myself dancing on the moon thing” –Well, I don’t know if that’s a thing but at least its my kinda thing…*smiles*
9. I love laughing…SO MUCH. But in the last two years I’ve also cried a lot. And to be honest I think that’s important for your journey of life and finding yourself on your way to experience both ends of the spectrum so I’m thankful for being fully emotional. Cause that is me.
10.I love my life – I love myself.
By the end of the day all what really matters is the relationship that we have with ourselves. And I think that is one if not THE one fact that is making me so happy at the moment. Cause all we need is love and especially for ourselves.
Saturday, last week, it was a beautiful sunny day and I was feeling different than usual.
At the moment I'm listening to a lot of R’N’B and in general music that makes my soul dance.
So I wanted to portrait that in my outfit. As soon as I put my outfit together I thought yes! ...and…what? at the same time laughs and asked myself “Well, is that really me?”
One second later I slapped myself in the face (For the most part I’m very kind to myself but sometimes you just need a “pick me up” so that’s exactly what I needed because we just think too much bullshit of ourselves…).
But on the other side I really do love this question because the answer will be always the same… Yes, it’s you.
No matter what you’re wearing or how you’re wearing it – IT IS AND IT WILL ALWAYS BE YOU.
Whether or not you want it to make it your own – that’s the next question.
Since my answer was yes I was ready to go and checking myself one last time in the mirror – I was feeling myself.
I felt fresh and somehow new and bossy… I felt confident!
Leaving the flat with some tropical tunes in my earholes, the first people (it was a couple) who came towards me starred in horror – I just smiled back at them.
When I crossed the street, people in the car started beeping, making funny faces and even screaming out of the car window, which I didn’t pay attention to cause with a whispering voice
My music that I was listening to was too good.
Meeting up with my Sis and her boyfriend in the city and the first thing she said when she saw me was “What the hell is this hat doing on your head?”
I laughed and my answer was “Its doing fashion!”
As I said in the beginning it was a beautiful day, we did a bit of shopping but also all of this made me think…why do we people care too much about other people’s looks?
Nowadays it’s still pretty let’s say daring to just wear the hell you like or what or how you feel.
And I’m saying “still” in a sense of disappointment because we should boost our confidence instead of wasting our energy with speculations of other people’s thoughts about our outfits (AND selves!).
We should be excited about trying something new, something unexpected and not be scared and under pressure of a “perfect” society that knows the dos and don’ts.
So that’s why confidence is sooooo important!
When you are confident nothing really can beat you. Not the shocked faces, not the funny looks, no unnecessary comments you might get because they can’t vibe with your being.
You know let’s be honest…by the end of the day it is all clothes and we as beings with different tastes and preferences put an outfit together. So instead of mentally or physically putting your finger on a person with a different style than yours, make this finger a full hand so you can high five each other and call it a fashionable day.
I’m singing you in my summer dress
It’s simple and light
Full of words of delight
I hope I could meet your high expectation
But if not
I’m sorry that you didn’t understand my translation
You weren’t the right stop for me
I’m feeling good
I’m feeling airy
I’m feeling free
Besides that dresses in general are awesome, its only one piece of clothing so you don't have to think too much about putting an outfit together. And its so much fun cause you have so much to choose from.
At the moment I'm very into floral prints. I love flowers. And I love short cuts. Also, I'm a BIG jewellry lover - more is MORE is my mantra, you know *giggles*.
You may wonder, why did I shoot the pictures in black and white?
Well, I love to get your imagination to get involved *winkswinks* so my closing words for this one are stay mysterious and wear that bloody summer dress!
What a week...!
First of all I definitely have to mention the beautiful summer breeze that FINALLY arrived us. It still doesn't feel real but every time you go outside - the sun will kiss your face...dreamy!
And thats what my Dad and I did last Sunday. My dad on the camera (that was actually real fun *laughs*) and I enjoying, getting snogged by the sun.
Looking back on these pictures really made me think...why do we sometimes find it so hard to be happy?
On Thursday I was at the About You Awards in Munich. I was invited to do so in February and have to say it was a great(!) event.
I met so many nice people, danced my feet off and all in all had a blast.
But it also made think about things like success, goals and visions and popularity...?!
Sometimes everything gets to much I feel and my mind likes to play games with me - typical problem of an over thinker (MEEEEE). But looking back on these pictures where I was enjoying the sun, feeling my outfit and spending some quality time with my father made me realize again that we have to KEEP THINGS SIMPLE and just live in the moment WITHOUT THINKING TOO MUCH!
Life would be much easier sometimes if I could turn my mind off for a hot minute and just yeah keep it simple, u know?
But one thing I'm now doing for a good time and actually worked wonders, is meditation. It's so good to calm down, relax and just reflect thoughts and feelings in the most chilliest way possible. And also reading stuff that Oh My God makes you notice and see things that were obvious but not really but omg yes...(*smiles*) Current reading material is called "On the way to yourself - Be who you really can be"...goosebumps over here but yeah keep it simple and enjoy your journey that is called life!
Everything started in the age of nine
A little girl dressing fine
Was gifted her first pair of star shoes
And there we had it
The star blues
Twelve years later
The star is back
Back for good and even better
Now I’m stading there
And writing you out there a little letter
Have you ever looked up into our nature ceiling?
By day bright and blue
By night there are stars shining through
Can I tell you something?
You are a star
No matter how, where and who you are
You are one star.
Shoes: One Star
"I thank God everyday, that I woke up feeling this way. I can't help loving myself and I don't need nobody else. Oh no!"
Well, waking up every morning and saying this to yourself in front of a mirror may sound a bit weird...okay maybe very weird but see what will happen...
I love this song and I truly love the message that is behind it. Life is all about love, right?...Love from our family, love from our friends, love from our partners. But when someone says out loud, I love myself(!), people would laugh at that person.
Because we humans have a fucking problem. We can't see or even worse don't want to see our beauty. Most of the times we only focus on the flaws, but the funny thing is, those are what make us beautiful (oh I love this!).
Self-confidence. The little sister of self-love (or brother you can choose it. Since I describe it from my feminine perspective, therefore she is the lil sister...who run the world...GIRLS *smiles*).
So as sisters they walk hand and hand which means one influences the other. So when you're self-confident you're loving yourself. We all want to be self-confident, don't we? And so many people ask people that actually are self-confident how they do it?
Well, its a training (*laughs*). Thats the way I see it! Like everything else in life, when you want to get better at something you have to start training to actually get better. Forget the funny looks, forget about the comments that you might get, basically forget anything else. Just remember one thing. YOU doing this for YOU - Because you are perfect "just the way YOU are" (Bruno you're amazing too...*smiles*).
That brings me back to the beginning: Who's that sexy thang I see over there? THATS ME, standing in the mirror.
Freaky sidenote...I have to admit, I kinda really love having my sexy face on that T (*smileysmileysmiles*)
Just go out into the world and fucking feel yourself. Why? Because its fucking YOU!
Well.......this week started rather unexpectedly terrible...I simply say food poisoning..."beautiful thing" (NOT) which I don't even want for my worst enemy to be honest.
But anyways I spent a few days home at my parents house, my mum being my personal nurse which was actually very nice cause I really treasure it when people that I love care for me.
Nevertheless today's about colour. Something else that I love and as I said it in the title, today is the day where you should start looking for the colour in your life!
Spring is finally here (thank God!!!), flowers start blooming, the trees show their first leaves, days are longer and nights are charming again.
Perfect timing to look out for some colour if ya ask me *winkwink....giggles* !
And with colour I don't just mean the colours itself - it could be anything really...What I'm trying to say is (oh man...I'm always trying *laughs*) find YOUR happiness AND especially try to find it in the smallest things cause that will make Your Life Colourful!
The weather situation is my colour, my family (and this week especially my mum/nurse) is my colour, my health is my colour, my papaya every morning is my colour, my music that I'm listening to every day is my colour (one of my faves tbh), the role of film that I shot in Munich a few weeks back is my colour and my new lil colourful puzzle of joy which I just have to look at and I'm happy *smiles*...I could go on and on but I'll leave it here and let you continue...
lots of love and colour to you
Sun is in the sky oh why oh why would I wanna be anywhere else? Sun is in the sky oh why oh why would I wanna be anywhere else?
Well, to be honest...I don't wanna be anywhere else!
My first Love in life (I was 9 to be exact *smirks*) was a beaut called London. I don't know what it was or what this gorgeous one did with me but I think thats what love's about, right? It was love at first sight, which actually happened 8 years after...in the age of 17, it was finally time. I've waited friggn 8 years for this moment and I was so nervous that already on the plane, I thought I'm getting a heart attack.
My expectations were so high that I almost got scared...Was my dream city just a dream?
NO. Let me tell ya sumthin - SHE WAS BETTER THAN A DREAM!
And let me tell you sumthin else - I'm still UTTERLY in love with her *smiles*.
Last week we had a sweet reunion, thanks to Zak, who was utterly amazing and literally burned the bush down like he never did something else. I also had THE BEST time with my danish Babes which I met at Koko last year. Thats what I love about music - it brings people together in the nicest way possible *beaming*.
As my title says it, oh yes I took my film camera with me which is probably my new fave thing ever (like for reals!) and just snapped away when I was walking through the streets...of London...
I just loved my little room. Was a true pleasure staying there...
Moody mornings at Nevern Road.
Breakfast situation (which was probably lunch tbh caused by the dreamiest lie in so I couldn't really complain...*laughs*) - Self-portrait and some Vieeews - could ya ask for more?
Walked through Holland Park, which I really enjoyed because of its peacefulness and listened to some Lily Babe which was "Alright, Still"...*winks*
Oh what can I say...Notting Hill you're a colorful joy for the eyes...
The moment you find a mirror with good lighting, a red Double-Decker surprises you with his company and your fave Mop Tops provide good vibrations in your earholes.
Walked all the way to the crazy madness called Piccadilly Circus. I love this place...even though its quite touristy I always start smiling when I'm there. People walking your way, smile back at you, talk aggressively to their phone, sing along to their song that their listening to (this actually makes me smile even more every time), talk to you and invite you to a party or a coffee because they find you beautiful...Man, I love this city!
Busy Earls Court the next morning...
Oh London my Love, you were magical as always. Can't wait ta see ya very very soon.
Hello its me...Izzy.
I don't really know where to start but yeah here I am once again.
A fresh start into the new year...even though we're already hitting April but that doesn't matter, right? Everyday is a fresh start for something beautiful.
So I thought hence why we're officially in the beginning of summer time, I'm back at this blogging kinda thing. But this time, I wanna do it with a bit more continuity. Even though I really needed that break, I had so many things to say but I didn't really know how to say them and especially express them.
Also I was kind of lost - I'm still totally lost but now its in a good way if you what I mean (possibly not but thats okay I usually don't understand myself either...*laughs*).
I feel like (even though I still positively lost) I found myself again. I'm more inspired than ever. I love what I love and I love to express what I love.
As cheesy as it sounds but fashion is my expression (that also rhymed...wow lol), music is my life and photography is a hidden passion of mine.
On top of that I really like to talk or in this case write about the things that move, bother, fascinate and above all inspire me!
So why I call myself a freak?
Well, as I said in the beginning...I wouldn't know where to start to answer that question but may I ask You a question?
Who wants to be normal these days?
If you answered this question with "I'm not." I officially welcome you to TheFreakLifeStyle.
(And for all of you out there that answered with "Yes, me." will get freakier from time to time by joining the family, you won't prevent it *winkwink*)
Let this freaky ride begin.
