2. Striped t-shirt, from H&M.
3. Super skinny jeans, also from H&M.
4. Chukka sneakers, from Vans.
5. Bear necklace, from titiMadam.

I love flowers, I really do (and, of course, that's not the manliest thing to say), they make everything look better and if they match your hair, which is a weird but awesome miracle, you should make the most of it and shoot photos. Statements like these make me feel like I'm gonna save the world one day or something, haha, just kidding. I know I'm just a fashion blogger.

But, on that note, I've been thinking about what I do a lot. Last week I was bullied online on Twitter by an "anonymous" source (that was dumb enough to not protect its IP address) and, when I knew who the person was, I stood up for myself. And, although it felt great and everything, it made me realize that sometimes I forget that being a fashion journalist is supposed to be a fun thing to do. 

So there we go, now I have to remember that I'm not doing what I do for money or free things or anything of the sort. I'm doing it because it's an activity I enjoy very much and, if a monetary compensation comes out of it, then great. I'm a wallflower, not a fallen petal. A wallflower with lilac hair and spikes on its jacket.

// Amo las flores, en serio lo hago (y sé, por supuesto, que no es la cosa más masculina para decir), hacen todo más bonito y si combinan con tu cabello, que es un raro pero increíble milagro, deberías sacarle el mayor provecho y tomar fotos. Declaraciones como esas me hacen sentir como que voy a salvar el mundo algún día o algo así, jaja. Broma. Sé que sólo soy un blogger de moda.

Pero, ya que toco el tema, he estado pensando mucho en lo que hago. La semana pasada fui bulleado en Twitter por una fuente "anónima" (que fue tan tonta que no protegió su dirección IP) y, cuando supe quién era, me defendí. Y, aunque se sintió muy bien y todo, me hizo dar cuenta que a veces olvido que ser un periodista de moda significa ser una actividad divertida.

Así es esto, ahora tengo que recordar que no hago lo que hago por el dinero o las cosas gratis o esas cosas. Lo hago porque es una actividad que disfruto mucho y, si viene una compensación monetaria, entonces súper padre. Soy un wallflower, no un pétalo caído. Wallflower con pelito lila y picos en su chamarra.
Love always,
Hen.

  2. Loe the outfit, especially the spiky shoulders jacket. It's great that u've stood up for urself on twitter and this industry might be quite cruel, but it's also about having fun, there might be money comes along the way but that shouldnt be our main focus :0 Wish u a good Friday and an amazing weekend, mate xx
