Where Have Thou Been?

I’m well aware it’s been several months, if not more, since I last posted here. How terrible! But I have a good excuse, I promise you. As of May this year I become a hairdressing apprentice. Something I honestly never thought I would do, yet it is probably one of the best decisions I have […]

Outfit- Old School Goth for The Damned

The Damned have been a part of my life for my entire life. There is a large framed poster of their album Phantasmagoria on the wall of the study, and I grew up watching The Young Ones so I remember them from the episode “Nasty”. But it wasn’t until about the age of 17 or 18 […]

Fuck Me Gently with a Chainsaw

So for a very long time, I’ve had my sights focused on being a costume designer. Those sights have kind of blurred in the past year, however I still love costume work. My work has never gone any further than high school musicals and plays. Even after I graduated, I was brought back to do […]

Haul – Boohoo.com

Anyone in the Goth community, especially those of the trad-Goth persuasion, MUST check out boohoo.com. Anyone who thinks that someone of a certain sub-culture must only shop at places that proclaim themselves to be a part of that sub-culture, like the many Goth brands out there, are kidding themselves. Boohoo is what you might call […]

Brecht and the Ramones

I have visited the crazy city of Berlin twice in the last few years, and both trips I have made sure to visit two places very close to my heart. A short walk away from each other in the area of Mitte, are the Ramones Museum and Bertolt Brecht’s grave and residence. I grew up listening to […]

Nevermind the Ballistics – Review

I would never have thought to mix the Sex Pistols with expensive bath products, but here you have it. The “Nevermind the Ballistics” bath bomb from our friends at Lush, inspired by the infamous Sex Pistols album “Nevermind the Bollocks, Here’s the Sex Pistols”. I was drawn in to the store by the brightly coloured bath […]

No Prost to Oktoberfest

Last weekend I attend Oktoberfest In the Gardens here in Melbourne. Being a big fan of German, and in particular Bavarian culture (because Oktoberfest is specifically Bavarian, not just German), I was pretty excited. For a hefty price of $70 we got entry into the event, one free beer which was one of the grossest […]

Outfit – Coffee Date feat. Adam Ant

I thought I might start doing little outfit posts. Because honestly, I put together some great outfits. Now that I’m back at work and earning again, I shall be buying much more clothes. So I’ll have a lot of fabulous outfits coming up. Today I start with something simple. Had a coffee date with a […]

Just You’re Average Friday

I cannot believe I didn’t think to blog about this. It was so exciting and so relatable to the themes of this blog!  I arrived in Amsterdam in the late afternoon and decided to suck it up and walk the 30 minute walk to my hostel, despite my suitcase.  As I was nearing somewhere near […]
