Moonchild Hel – Assembly of Shadows

A while back we did a co-op with French Gothic beauty Océane Régnier, aka @moonchildhel co-owner of the blog, Assembly of Shadows. She runs the blog together with partner Romain Legrand, aka @asmodeusmoonlighthel and it is a dream if you (like me) are into romantic dark outfits, crystals, antiques and magical forest imagery. Imagine having a partner who shares you interests, fashion sense and sometimes wardrobe!

In the image above, (from instagram) Océanes  is wearing our Celestial Duality Choker, paired with a clear crystal quartz combo- Crystal Quartz Bolo Wrap Necklace and the Raw Crystal Quartz Earrings.

 

Such a lovely image, showing our XL Crystal Quartz ring.

Summer Solstice – 30% discount to celebrate the light!

The summer solstice, also known as midsummer, occurs when a planet’s rotational axis on either its northern or its southern hemisphere, is most inclined toward the star that it orbits. Aka the time of the year with the most light- the longest day and shortest night. This year it is today, Wednesday 21/7 2017. Midsummer (high summer) is celebrated within this week, ranging from the 20th to the 25th.  It is at time of the year associated with major festivities here in the North, when you gather with friends and family and celebrate, often with pagan heritage and in a celebration of light and fertility.  Talking about fertility, if you are non Swedish –  open up a new window and google “midsommar stång”.

Do you see it? :). True story – swedes dances around a large flower dressed pole, shaped as a d**k. Does not get more pagan does it :D.

 

While we do not have any flower dressed poles in sight we have a lot of light shiny beautiful crystal quartz jewellery, so to celebrate the light (lets leave the fertility part to the Vikings shall we) we offer a 30% discount code on ALL crystal quartz items in store .

Simply add a crystal quartz item to you cart, then use coupon code “midsummer” at checkout.

Glad Midsommar!

Summer Vibes!

How do you keep your dark aesthetics when its getting hotter outside? Me, I tend to want to hide in a freezer all summer, being the grump goth hiding in the shadow, cursing the heat and shying away from the sun (well a part from summer nights, thats a different story, then you can be out doors, staying awake late and go for long walks listening to music).  But if you are unlike me and like the sun, we have some goodies still in store for you, example this black skimpy mini dress with open back, perfect to pair with killer platforms and your favourite black hat.

Have you seen the stunning contributions on this years NYX Nordic Face Awards? We love spotting these magical looks on social media. The first theme this years was Northern Lights – Aurora Borealis. Which of course is right up our alley, love seeing this typical Northen fenomena translated to make-up.  Image above: Marte  https://www.instagram.com/glitterbubblegum_/

Aurora Borealis is an incredible light show caused by collisions between electrically charged particles released from the sun that enter the earth’s atmosphere and collide with gases such as oxygen and nitrogen. The lights are seen around the magnetic poles of the northern and southern hemispheres. Here are some of our favourites – the talent of these girls are surreal!

I’m done compromising; even more so, I’m done with being compromised!

mila-kunis-wallpaper-018

Her at the Hellaholics studio we have been big fans of Mila Kunis since the days of that 70s show, she recently kicked up a storm with the following open letter:

To good to not to share! By Mila Kunis:

 

You’ll Never Work In This Town Again…

“You’ll never work in this town again.” A cliché to be sure, but also what a producer threatened when I refused to pose semi-naked on the cover of a men’s magazine to promote our film. I was no longer willing to subject myself to a naïve compromise that I had previously been willing to. “I will never work in this town again??” I was livid, I felt objectified, and for the first time in my career I said “no.” And guess what? The world didn’t end. The film made a lot of money and I did work in this town again, and again, and again. What this producer may never realize is that he spoke aloud the exact fear every woman feels when confronted with gender bias in the workplace.

It’s what we are conditioned to believe — that if we speak up, our livelihoods will be threatened; that standing our ground will lead to our demise. We don’t want to be kicked out of the sand box for being a “bitch.” So we compromise our integrity for the sake of maintaining status quo and hope that change is coming.

But change is not coming fast enough to help my friends, my peers, or even our children. In fact, a recent study by the American Association of University Women shows that the pay gap is closing at such a slow rate that it will be 136 years before women are paid equally to men. 136 years. And the pay gap is but one clear quantification of the acute undervaluing of the contributions of women in the workplace.

Throughout my career, there have been moments when I have been insulted, sidelined, paid less, creatively ignored, and otherwise diminished based on my gender. And always, I tried to give people the benefit of the doubt; maybe they knew more, maybe they had more experience, maybe there was something I was missing. I taught myself that to succeed as a woman in this industry I had to play by the rules of the boy’s club. But the older I got and the longer I worked in this industry, the more I realized that it’s bullshit! And, worse, that I was complicit in allowing it to happen.

So, I started my own club. I formed a production company with three amazing women. We have been hustling to develop quality television shows with unique voices and perspectives. Since our inception, we have been lucky enough to partner with incredible producers, male and female, who have treated us as true equals and partners. Recently, we signed on to partner with an influential male producer on project that would shine a light on an important social issue — ironically — inclusivity and our shared human experience.

In the process of pitching this show to a major network, the typical follow-up emails were sent to executives at this network. In this email chain, this producer chose to email the following:

“And Mila is a mega star. One of biggest actors in Hollywood and soon to be Ashton’s wife and baby momma!!!”

This is the entirety of his email. Factual inaccuracies aside, he reduced my value to nothing more than my relationship to a successful man and my ability to bear children. It ignored my (and my team’s) significant creative and logistical contributions.

We withdrew our involvement in the project.

Yes, it is only one small comment. But it’s these very comments that women deal with day in and day out in offices, on calls, and in emails — micro-aggressions that devalue the contributions and worth of hard working women.

Subtle gender bias is oftentimes nearly imperceptible, and even wholly undetectable to those who share the bias. It became clear in later emails from this producer that he was totally unaware of why his words were so appalling. What he characterized as a “lighthearted” comment was actually deeply undermining to my contributions and ability to be taken seriously as a creative partner.

I have no interest in vilifying this man or this industry. Blind gender biases are embedded in every facet of our life. They are re-enforced by our educational institutions: men dominate the figures we study in history, the luminaries of math and science and technology about whom we learn, and the authors of political discourse we are taught to revere. We are inundated with tales of male superiority that blind us to the architecture of our own relationships. The very world “blind” informs us of everything. No one gets upset when a blind person bumps into a wall, but the wall does not cease to yield force.

I’m done compromising; even more so I’m done with being compromised. So from this point forward, when I am confronted with one of these comments, subtle or overt, I will address them head on; I will stop in the moment and do my best to educate. I cannot guarantee that my objections will be taken to heart, but at least now I am part of creating an environment where there is the opportunity for growth. And if my comments fall on deaf ears, I will choose to walk away.

If this is happening to me, it is happening more aggressively to women everywhere. I am fortunate that I have reached a place that I can stop compromising and stand my ground, without fearing how I will put food on my table. I am also fortunate that I have the platform to talk about this experience in the hope of bringing one more voice to the conversation so that women in the workplace feel a little less alone and more able to push back for themselves.

I will work in this town again, but I will not work with you”
