Denim extravaganza

Hello lovely people! I'm happy to be back in under two weeks (I hope we keep this up) with another outfit post. 
I won't be much of a talker today because I feel so exhausted I cam barely keep my eyes open. I haven't been sleeping much lately. Now combine that with stress and you've got a disaster (which is also the reason behind the mountain on my forehead). 

I really wanted to make a look combining all baggy clothes and denim on denim. To add to the edginess, I put on some green lipstick that gives me sort of a cold vibe and I made my brows a bit thicker than usual. I wanted to style my hair into two buns, one on each side, but they kept falling apart, so I just gave up (you'll see that hairdo eventually, I just need to get it right first). 









I'm wearing: 

jeans - Topshop
T-shirt - H&M
denim jacket - Zara 
Y.R.U. platforms - Nastygal

lipstick - Illamasqua, shade Apocalips 
nail polish - Catrice, shade 06 Bronze upon A Time

Thank you for reading! 
Love you guys XX

Rainbow

Hello lovely people! This posting once every two weeks is apparently becoming a thing, even though I really don't want it to be. But things came up again and it just wasn't possible to do it last week. (Hopefully it will get better once I have less tests.) I was thinking about posting anyway and talking about something big that happened last week, but I figured I could just as well do it today, so here we go. 
Everyone from my country knows what I'm talking about, but for those of you who are not from Slovenia (there are actually quite a few of you), here is what happened. Slovenia finally legalised same sex marriage and child adoption on March 3. I was really excited because we are moving forward and it should be obvious to everyone that we all deserve equal rights (no matter what race, sex, sexual orientation, religion... you are). But apparently it is not. 
Quite a lot of people got upset and protested against the new law and started collecting signatures to overthrow it. Catholic church being the main supporter of this nonsense (I'm not saying all Catholics are against the law because that's far from the truth, but collecting signatures in churches clearly states the opinion of the institution itself.) they collected around 80.000 of them. That number was a great disappointment, to me at least. Because it means there are at least (I know there are a lot more) that many people that don't believe that we should have EQUAL RIGHTS. I'm not even going to go into the "arguments" they have because most of them are so ridiculous, I doubt even they believe them. There are some that may seem fairly valid, but all of them can be dismissed one way or another. Apparently the whole country is going to fall apart because gay people can get married. And lets just think about that for a second. It's two people that love each other and want to be together officially. Why do we have such a problem with that? It's not going to change anyone else's marriage, it's just giving two people the opportunity to officially declare their love for each other. Why do people that are not gay even care about that in the first place? It doesn't effect you in any way, shape or form. It doesn't change your life in any way. You trying to make same sex marriage impossible won't have a single effect on you, but it may change my life and the lives of many other people. It won't, since it's not going to happen and the law is here to stay. But it's still kind of insane that you're trying to deprive someone of their rights. 
Then there's the whole child adoption thing, as if there wasn't enough fuss about the marriage itself. They say they want to protect the rights of the children that would supposedly get adopted by a same sex couple because it's "unnatural" and "wrong" and a child has to have a mother and a father to develop properly and because they would be bullied. I'm not even going into the unnatural and wrong thing because 1. everything in nature is natural and homosexuality is quite common among other species and 2. your iphone didn't exactly fall from the tree either and you still use it. As far as this argument about having a mother and a father goes, I think it's doing more harm than good. How do you think children without one parent or both or those who already have homosexual parents feel when you tell them they can't have as good of a life as people with a mother and a father? That their parents can't give them what other children get? Having heterosexual parents (both of them) does not ensure a healthy living environment for a child and I've seen more than enough proof of that. Being straight and able to make children doesn't make you a good parent. I'm not saying abuse and what not doesn't happen if you have homosexual parents, being gay can't make people more or less shitty. I'm just saying that if two people are mentally and emotionally stable enough to give them love and support and have the financial stability to provide for the child, it doesn't matter if they are two men, two women or a man and a woman. And if your argument is that psychology says otherwise, let me just stop you right there. Psychologists, sociologists, social workers of Slovenia have all given their official opinions on the matter and guess what, they support the law. 
As far as the picking on children with homosexual parents goes, everyone gets bullied for one reason or another. Either they're picked on because of their weight, looks, their parents, their grades... It's always something. But there weren't thousands of people gathering to try to fix that. They still bring it up as a problem in connection with homosexuals though. I mean, why doesn't everyone just teach their own children to be accepting and loving and not make fun of people for being different? It would certainly make the world and school a much better place. 
In conclusion, we are not all the same. Every single one of us is different. But we are equal or at least we should be in the eyes of the law if nothing else. We should spread love, not hate. Instead of breaking into two "camps" and dividing the country, we should step together and actually try to solve actual problems (because homosexuality is not a problem). It would create a much healthier living environment.  
(Btw, there is a petition you can sign if you support the law and the link is HERE!)

And I still believe that justice will win here and that this thing will be settled soon (hopefully without spending a whole lot of money on the referendum). 

Okay, that was a long one. And to think I was actually holding myself back a bit. But I needed to talk about it. Sorry for being all over the place though. 

Okay finally, here is my outfit. Enjoy and I'll be back next week (hopefully)!
