I’m Franx, or Frankii, or Fentoozler, or whatever you wanna call me as long as it’s nice.
As the description says, I’m an all round Yorkshire Lass; born, bred and proud of it. No matter how far I venture, that white rose will always be in my heart.
The picture above is of me and my charming fiance, whom I wouldn’t be me without ♥ He’s the one on the right by the way, not Buzz Lightyear.
I’ve been Straight Edge since 2010, Vegetarian since 2004 and obsessed with music for as long as I can remember ♥
After realising I had no discernible talent to create music myself, I decided my love for writing could help me express my love for music, whilst spreading the word for deserving bands across the globe. So, since 2010 I’ve focussed my writing talent on reviews and features for a variety of local and worldwide zines, on and offline. As well as photographing local bands, and festivals. Early 2012, I also decided to have a whirl at videographing bands, and have a few ideas for documentaries and the like up my sleeve.
My other passions are animal rights, tattoos and loving your body (which will all be recurring topics of this blog if I get my own way).
Even before I was Vegetarian I felt strongly about animal cruelty, and now I try my very best to stay clear of anything tested on animals.
I love my body mods too, particularly tattoos.
I’ve got a couple of piercings: stretched lobes, septum and nipples, but that’s as far as I’m going with them.
I’m well and truly addicted to ink though, and don’t intend on stopping until I’ve run outta skin to decorate.
They’ve gotta have meaning though, so please don’t bother flashing your random tribal tramp-stamp at me, as I will think you’re a cunt.
Like I said, I’m also an advocate for loving your body.
I don’t always get on with mine, we have a bit of a love-hate relationship, but I’m learning to accept all the lumps and bumps for what they are, part of what makes me me, an individual, and 100% unique ♥
I came up with the idea for this blog after me and my lovely friend Leonie (aka Pixie) sieved through University prospectuses looking at the variety of Journalism subjects available for study amongst this fair Isle’s many institutions.
We both agreed that whilst Music and Travel were our main areas of study, we were both interested in writing about other things such as fashion, food, and all sorts of other stuff.
And thus, Pixie and Franx was born. In order for us to gain some more writing experience, but more importantly, to share our opinions on what matters (to us) with the world wide web.
