Frequently asked Questions / Answered
Why is your blog called Spiked Skulls and other requests?
It was a random name from the top of my head, but I wanted this blog to be about my Summer DIY's and at the time spikes and skull brochettes were what was used to customize outfits, to make them look more edgy and cool. I used them a lot on denim cutoffs so that's were (spiked and skulls) came from. Eventually I wanted to move away from just DIY's and concentrate more on fashion, which is were (other requests) come from meaning other things related to fashion; like lookbooks, hauls, style inspo, product reviews etc.. featured on my blog.. does that make sense ?.
Who are your favourite fashion bloggers?
The bloggers I like, I follow I originally started blogging after reading Kavita's posts on shewearsfashion and so she is one of my biggest inspirations. I also watch a lot of you-tubers like Sunbeanjess, fashioncitizens, clothesencounters, Tar Mar and others and I just thought WOW; that's something I want to do.. I had a lot of encouragement from my friends that finally pushed me or persuaded me (have your pick) to start a blog at the time when a lot of people started fashion blogging. At college it started with the questions "were did you get your shorts" oh I customized them myself and the shocked look on their faces is so self rewarding (not in a narcissistic way) but in a am actually pretty good at this way. Also there were times when girls would come up to me and say "I love your style" and that's also why I wanted to start preaching about spending less on clothes or getting the look at £5, it's all that inspires me.
Do a lot of people know about your blog?
I'd like to think so, but I have kept my blog very much on the down low for quite some time, just because I was really nervous on how people would perceive me; especially people I knew from my old school. Now I am not so much in denial and openly display my blog link on my instagram bio or any other links, anyone can subscribe too. It's really grew my confidence and made me self respect myself more because I am expressing what I like to do online here, on this social forum trying to be original and different from the rest.
