For my beloved nerds

As I mentioned in my previous blog most people associate nerds with glasses, junkfood and bad style. This is however not always the case. Therefore I would like to give a few suggestions to how you can change your image or simply just make a few improvements.

Sitting in front of your computer all day long, every week is no excuse to not dress properly. You might not have the interest but I promise you that if you lack confidence, it might be worth spending a little time on looking into. The key is often to understand how to put your clothing together. If that's the case, I would like to introduce you to a few websites who does most of it for you. Most websites are providing a look-book which shows you outfits they've put together. You don't have to do the exact outfit yourself, but it's good if you just need some inspiration.

Hair style: 
You can so easily get a new look by simply changing your hair-style. You have to get your hair cut so why not try something new? Here's an example of Scott from Method before and after, looks good right? You can always ask a hair-designer which hair-cut suits your face-shape or which sort of style is IN at the moment. It can be pretty scary to try something totally different, but take a chance and challenge yourself. You might end up loving your new look ;-).

Your face:
Glasses are in, so no need to go get contact lenses if you are confortable wearing glasses already. A thing that will never be IN though, is bad skin. Make sure to eat some sort of healthy and to clean your skin everyday. If you don't get much fresh air or do any sort of exercise, it's very important to look after your skin. At your local store you can get face-washes, moisturizer etc. FOR MEN. Saying "ITS GAY" is not legit, this is 2012, not 1950...

Most importantly; Be yourself, find something you feel comfortable wearing. Fashion fades, style is eternal - so go find your own, personal, ROCK-ON nerd-style.

Something else

It all began a friday night 7 years ago when I was on my way out to yet another party. I was meeting up with a girl from my school but before we were ready to hit the town, she had to finish "her raid". I had no idea what that meant, didnt know anything about any sort of games, besides the fact that most people who "played games" was nerds, usually with glasses and bad skin. However I turned up and watched her play, and for some reason (after a good laugh and some pointing fingers), I found the universe quite amazing. She was playing World of Warcraft. The day after I went to the local store and bought the game. I spend the first months on changing "cloth" on my lvl 1 - still, undead warlock. In the end of Vanilla I had the chance of joining a few raids and this more time I spend in-game this more I enjoyed playing the game. I began my hardcore career as soon as TBC hit, and joined Celebrity on Balnazzar. To make a long story short I joined Showdown when Celebrity disbanded, later Perfectly Sane for in the end being a part of forming Envy where my journey also ended. I've now played the game on a casual level for 2 years, having my home in Method on Twisting Nether. Also my dear warlock is dead and gone, and now replaced with my blood elf rogue - which I find way more fun to play. When I'm not playing WoW I usually play League of Legends, feel free to poke me on EU West; Xxtina. :)

This blog was created for me to blog about the other part of my life; fashion, which I study and love. I'll finish my BA in Branding and Marketing December 2013, so there might be a few posts here and there containing clothing or other things related. 

If there's anything specific you would like me to write about, feel free to leave a comment :-)
