Firstly I’d like to say happy Halloween because it’s the first of October and that obviously means it is time for Halloween. Are you all excited? Do you have good plans? (I don’t even know what I AM actually doing … Continue reading
Wooo! So, apologies this took me so long, but this is my mainly video run down of the opening of Tokyo Toys in Birmingham (it’s my local city). There is already one in London and the company tends to have … Continue reading

Wahey! I am writing a post! Today I have these amazing sclera lenses from Blackscleracontactlenses to review. The company they came from was amazing, they shipped from Europe and were super fast and really good with communication. I would seriously … Continue reading
Firstly I want to apologise that this is a little late. I have come down with a cold/cough and feeling a little under the weather. I also have to write about our trip to London which happened ages ago but..yeah. Life has been a little stressful recently but that’s why I am going to write about all the FUN things we have been upto!
Me and Charlie got invited to a Yelp event promoting Stitches and Hos knitting/sewing circle, along with Vedett beer. The event was hosted by Cherry Red’s which is a pretty amazing venue hidden away in Birmingham. We sat at the back sharing a table with a lovely couple who we pretty much got chatting to all night! There were amazing cherry cupcakes, I think it was one of the tastiest cupcakes I ever ate in my life.
The Stitches and Hos guys were really nice, friendly and most importantly patient with us lot who had never touched wool before. We got to make pom poms using some…device for making pom poms. I actually found that really relaxing to do, and I am tempted to pick up one of the things to sit and wrap wool around it! I never would of thought I would of enjoyed it, but I gave it a go and proved myself wrong!
Vedett beer. Now I am not a big beer/lager drinker, so I couldn’t compare the taste to anything. But I can say I actually DID like it. It was really light and refreshing, would of really complimented a curry haha! We also had our photos taken to be put on the actual beer bottles…so who knows, you might see our faces on some beer one day.
After the event we stayed around for another beer (Vedett of course!) and honestly I would say I would happily go again to the venue, I’d probably go knitting too, I mean it might come in handy one day? Also, excuse my mainly hidden face, I had just come from work. Also free hat!
My Sunday service posts are basically a run down of interesting finds from various shops over the week. This one will be a themed post, on bats! I really love bats and Halloween things and there seems to be a fair amount still in the shops! A few of these are in the sale which is even better isn’t it?
Links to buy these!
Have you found any interesting bat clothing?
Sunday service is going to be a scheduled weekly post I do (on a Sunday, obviously!), showing all the interesting clothing pieces I have found over the week.
This week I am going to be focusing on H&M’s Grey Concept. I have picked this one first due to the fact the H&M store I work in have decided I am the Grey Concept ambassador due to wearing it so much! If you are into more unusual pieces, Korean style and “Goth Ninja” I would say check out this concept. A lot of the pieces have much more unusual cuts and shapes than the average high street shops (in the UK). Also I would say a lot of it can be worn unisex.

Long time no see everyone! I have been so pre-occupied with the new job and life in general that I have neglected here a little bit! So I am gonna start the new year of blogging off with a “what I brought over the last few months, and mostly in the last month” post. I have been busy buying to be honest, a lot of it is sale material though so it was pretty cheap.
OK! Lets start with the fact the majority of stuff I have brought is H&M, the staff discount is honestly dangerous…it is mainly grey concept I will be honest cause let’s face it, it is the best hahah.
A cool red and black raglan from Topman, haven’t worn it yet as the weather is a bit naff really. The white shirt in the middle is from Taobao, it can be tied in a big bow and I wanna use it when I do a sort of Kodona/Ouji piece, eventually. The ripped jeans are also Taobao. The waistcoats are from H&M and Topman (and the shorts), and jackets are H&M and Primark.
This beautiful All Saints passport cover is a gift (along with the passport lol!) from lovely Charlie, so this year we will be travelling outside of England! The rest is H&M again, more for costume things rather than day to day stuff.
The capes are Tesco and Debenhams, the trousers are Ann Summers and the bat top is Killstar! This is for my more dressy uppy wardrobe, and will probably see the goth clubs a fair bit.
Also H&M and Topman, a horrendous fur coat which will work wonders for certain cosplay characters, and bat leggings and a pumpkin top. Uh, Halloween cast offs. Who cares if it is in the “girl” section?
So, below are some pics of me wearing the new stuff, cause to be honest I don’t look good to wear it right now, hahah I am almost in bed!
Also I have a new wig and I don’t know what to do with it 🙂
I can only say this is a semi review as I haven’t watched it all, has it even..all come out yet? I dunno. Anyway, honestly this I thought would be a bit of a laugh to watch, maybe a funny … Continue reading
This is a really late post but I am really good at wanting to write about things but not actually doing it.
So, for my birthday I was treated with a trip to Bristol! The original plan was London and Expo but it proved too costly and I think fate was telling us to change plans considering how wonderful of a time I had. (Also thank you to Steph for looking after the kittens for us!)
Got into Birmingham and had Costa.
We got the coach down cause it was really cheap and I think the journey went quite fast. We checked into the Mercure Hotel Bristol (and had been upgraded to a river view room by surprise at no extra cost).
Charlie paid for us to have breakfast in bed as we arrived (but the hotel computer was playing up and people kept asking him to pay?) Also, sadly I was supposed to have flowers in the room as a surprise but it didn’t happen, as the hotel forgot to put them in the room whoops lol. But they were a beautiful thing none the less. (Though apparently there was supposed to be a balloon and chocolates too but they never turned up, companies fault!)
Also I was obviously so excited I had a nosebleed. Excuse my derpy face but it was funny.
And also obvious self shots
We went out to Bristol town and mooched around a bit, everything was fairly chilled. Went to Carluccio’s and had a lovely pate dish, and I was also secretly brought out a lemon tart with candle which was delicious.
Primark offered a funny sight for all the Gorillaz fans out there too…
Bumped into a “friend” you may have seen in a previous post.
Choice of clothing by Abandon Ship Apparel.
We found an almost aptly named shop on the way:
Day 2 we had planned to go to a Louisiana style restaurant (which we learnt had closed down when we went) and we went to Bristol museum and the zoo. But first we had our breakfast in bed which was amazing but we also couldn’t finish it all. We found “Lilly & Boo’s Cake Shop” on the way and had tea and cake instead. This place is definitely worth visiting.
We didn’t mooch the museum long cause most of it wasn’t free haha, but did have a little look at the natural stuff of the area. We also found a very rare duck obviously native to Bristol.
The zoo we finally walked to (was quite a trek!) was really fun, they had dinosaurs and bats and lions and shit.
I think I liked the bats most.
Also strange Tapir creature.
After the zoo it was time to head back and get ready for karaoke!
And that was fun. They brought dim sum to our booth and oh god their chicken feet were the best I have had in a long time I could eat some now aghghghgh. Me, Charlie and Shazz picked the most awkward and varied songs I think we could and really had a drunken blast. No pictures of that though!
The place we had karaoke at was Kobe in Little Chinatown. Really amazing place and I would recommend it.
The day after was travel home day, and we had a really late coach back so we went to Cribbs Causeway Mall, and ate loads of food from McDonalds and Pizza Hut all you can eat buffet. Then we travelled to Chippenham to see Charlie’s family and fat cats. Stumbled home and went to bed!
Now to pack for Manchester…
