Black Veil Brides outfit by Pixie Magenta Onyx!

my soon to be outift

Brookelle Bones in Sailor's Hat!


First day of true winter in Littleblackcherry Land...



Oh how I don't like cold weather, I knew it must be cold outside, as the heating was working all the time this morning to keep the temperature (normally it's on for an hour, then cools down and on again after few hours). I felt the cold right away when I left home, brrr... I was lucky I went jogging yesterday, although it was rainy and dark I managed to jog in my vest. I wouldn't be able to do it today. I decided it's time to hit the gym tomorrow - it's cosy and warm - and I'm going to wear my Black and White Stripey Girl Tshirt - I love this little Tee. It reminds of me of times when I was training to Half Marathon 3 years ago - I was wearing the same Tee :)

Never Shout Never Competition


Today I've been sending out latest Christofer Drew's competition to magazines (US so far), I'm so glad I have finally done it, Jamie - our web designer, has been advising me to do it since August last year, so yay! One step forward in good direction. I have come up with nice text, gripping title - I hope - and let's see if people will be interested in publishing this competition in magazines :) Oh, and the competition is simply one question (really easy!) and the prize is the Sailor Hat that Christofer Drew is wearing in this photo! It's wicked little hat, we've got only it available here in LBC and waiting for a lucky winner! 


Haha, so funny - Brookelle Bones video bit off the record...

My new hair obsession...



Ok, I must admit,  I have got the most irrational attitude with my money. I won't buy Cathedral cheese (my favourite) but instead get Sainsbury's brand cheddar, which is 50p cheaper, or won't buy my favourite nice aromatic coffee but go for the one that's on sale that day, yet later spend £3.50 on one single cup of coffee in Starbucks... My economy is so false, it's unreal... 

I'd rather spend £7.00 on new hair styling kit because of my current obsession with wavy hair, instead of buying new quality face cream (which, let's face it, I clearly need). I've dyed my hair some time ago on dark colour, and I absolutely love it, I will stay brunette for a while :) Now after over 30 years of having dead straight hair I lust for California Waves... There's few products that can actually give this effect, without the need of buying curling iron. You can get some sprays and creams that you apply to either damp or dry hair and scrunch your hair till you get desired effect. It looks lovely, well for an outsider not familiar with this sophisticated technique I look like someone who really needs a combe. And mirror, sadly, and the hair gets really dry and dull... 

But you get fraction of a wave, who cares about sticky coarse hair if you can sport a WAVE... ahh, I'm sure I'll get better with making my hair curly, and probably buy curling iron at some point, till then I'm happy for my hair to look scruffy but wavy :)

Trying to motivate myself...



I would love to think I'm self motivated, but some days are just against you, no matter how hard you try. For example I sit down to write new article for Alt Fashion, and then I remember I haven't been on Facebook for last 20 minutes, and then I find this awesome chilled out song, and then all your plans for the day are just gone in a puff of smoke...
Anyway, I would love to recommend a movie I've watched last night - 'Upside of Anger' with Kevin Costner, really amazing, especially if you get angry a lot - it's explained it's so not worth getting angry :) Lesson for me too actually...

Cupcake Cult Monster Hat gets Top Place on Bestsellers list in Little Black Cherry!



I have finally sorted out our Best Sellers page today, it's finally up to date and shows what have been the most popular in last few weeks :) Poizen Industries have made really good job with their Plushie jet black and neon pink Monster Hat, it's been so in demand last month, especially with all Christmas shopping :) 
It's extremely appealing, made from cuddly fabric that covers your hair and ears and cheeks so there's no risk of feeling cold when you wrap up :) You can hide your hands in big paws, and each comes with it's own little monster claws - that's too cute!!
I felt in love with this Monster Hat as soon as I opened our first Poizen Industries clothing delivery, it was funny day to see all these Monsters, Dinos, Pandas and crazy paw bearing creatures hijacking our office. They became part of our everyday lives now, and believe me once you try this Cupcake Cult Monster Hat with Spikes there's no turning back to your ol'regular beannie, your soul belongs to cupcake and co!

Create Wicked Blood-Stained Nails



I know it's past Halloween, but I've been browsing through old folders today and I stumbled upon images which I have collected when working on last Halloween's promos. You know, Jack Skellington Nails, tumbstone cupcakes etc etc. I really miss Halloween, it's been so incredibly inspiring, and when I was working on promos I felt like a kid in a Candy store haha :) So forgive me for this little bump, but I started uploading new nail polishes online into our store, and I found this wicked tutorial on how to create Blood Stained nails, hope you like it :)
It's a really easy nail design for those of you who want to add a little something to your vampire or vixen ostume. I think this would also be perfect if you wanted to do something simple for Halloween. 

Products used: 
  • Cosmetic sponge
  • Dark Red Nail Polish
  • Black Nail Polish

Killer Panda 'I Heart Nerds' T shirt arrives today :)



 Yesterday I have finally ordered all Kitty Ears Hoodies, Monster Hoodies with Ears, Ear Muffs that had been out of stock plus few new additions to Poizen Industries clothes collection. I haven't been ordering any more stock after 15 December, so with Christmas purchases the stock boxes in our warehouse looked pretty empty :) But luckily yesterday all the best selling designs have been re-ordered and it should all arrive today! Together with this brand new Purple 'I Heart Nerds' skinny T-shirt - I think it looks wicked, I've ordered only 1 piece per size to check if it sells, and if it's popular I'll order full pack :)

Definitely ordering more stock today...




Back to work now after Christmas and New Year's break - End of Month, new stock orders, closing one bank account and switching all standing orders and direct debits to other account, and also back to old self :) I'm so glad I finished knitting my scarf over Christmas - and today I plan on buying some soft baby wool to start knitting baby hat and mitts (perhaps) for my niece. Also some seriously exciting resolutions / plans made for 2012 - got my lucky diary already, which is a great start :) 

Let 2012 bring you all Hope and Happiness you wish for xxx
