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 

Yelp Event – “Stitches and Hos”

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!

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?

Sunday Service: H&M Grey Concept

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.

Shopping Haul

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.

Mainly grey colours huh? The scarf has a hood attached which is cool! The funnel neck top I was eyeing up for ages…

IMG_2039
I also found this coat in black. I got the blue version as a gift, and now I have two! It’s really comfy, and looks cool.

IMG_2048 IMG_2049
Some more H&M grey concept and a couple of shirts from River Island sale. Seriously, look at the print!
IMG_2050
How cool is that?

IMG_2037 IMG_2041 IMG_2045
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.

IMG_2029 IMG_2027 IMG_2044
IMG_2043
Most of the accessories are H&M, Topman and River Island. The scarf is, well…Diesel. The bag is from a cheap shop in Birmingham!

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.

On the subject of costume things, I have been buying stuff for that too.

IMG_2040 IMG_2042 IMG_2038
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.
IMG_2051
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?

IMG_2054
Also some Dune boots, New Look and Primark. I swear the bat leggings and red boots, capes…I may as well just cosplay Noel Fielding.

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!

Bristol

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!)

IMG_4566-horz
My travel look, hair freshly done!

Got into Birmingham and had Costa.

IMG_4572-horz
Yum.

IMG_4575
My Costa face LOL. It was a bright day.

IMG_4578
Snacks for the journey?

IMG_4580-horz
Pulling faces on the coach. I was excited cause it was a double decker one.

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).

IMG_4584-tile
Really nice hotel.

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!)

IMG_4590
Deep reds.

Also I was obviously so excited I had a nosebleed. Excuse my derpy face but it was funny.

IMG_4591

And also obvious self shots

IMG_4588

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.

IMG_4594-horz

Primark offered a funny sight for all the Gorillaz fans out there too…

IMG_4592

Bumped into a “friend” you may have seen in a previous post.

We popped back to the hotel to refresh and then hit The Crown pub to meet up with Will and Nate, had some drinks…had fun you know…

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.

66 (5)
We also had fro yo.

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.

66 (4)

The zoo we finally walked to (was quite a trek!) was really fun, they had dinosaurs and bats and lions and shit.

aa (1)-tile

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!

44 (2)

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…
