Alice : Curiouser and Curiouser – A Trip to the V&A (Blog)

As part of my ongoing efforts to shake the funk out of my life (well, not all of it, as am actually going to a disco event in November oop oop!), I booked a ticket to the Alice : Curiouser and Curiouser exhibition at the V&A museum. And there I was, awake at 8am on a freaking Sunday, ready to stumble into the rat hole … Continue reading Alice : Curiouser and Curiouser – A Trip to the V&A (Blog)

Lรถรถkbook : Shiny Chainz

Yes. This is still my back garden being used as a pseudo tropical background (do not underestimate London’s fauna and flora!) Yes. This has been taken using my phone instead of my expensive camera and its equally pricey tripod. But! I have an excuse, I am on antibiotics at the moment (of course the vertigo from last week wasn’t enough for Satan), so I’ve been … Continue reading Lรถรถkbook : Shiny Chainz

Killing the Kilos … And the Kardashians๐Ÿ”ช๐Ÿ’ƒ

On Wednesday 22nd of September, I went to a yoga class. Just like all the other Wednesdays. But on this particular Wednesday,  as I lept towards the floor for a smooth “downward facing dog” – I felt as if I was leaping in the toilet bowl of a nightclub after one too many drinks: I felt nauseous, dizzy and sick. Basically all the drunk side … Continue reading Killing the Kilos … And the Kardashians๐Ÿ”ช๐Ÿ’ƒ

Latest eBay Haul : Batty Chic ๐Ÿฆ‡๐Ÿ’ƒ

Spooky season? Perhaps, but in my neck of the woods it is blazer season that is upon us! I have always loved to mix and match various styles of clothing and my latest attempt is going to be mixing dogtooth pattern blazers with more alternative accessories and shoes. Coco Shrapnel is actually my second preferred pseudonym for a reason ๐Ÿ˜‰ So I treated myself for … Continue reading Latest eBay Haul : Batty Chic ๐Ÿฆ‡๐Ÿ’ƒ

OOTD: Da Goth Unchained โ›“๏ธ๐Ÿ”—

You know when people feed you clichรฉ lines such as “be the change you want to see in the world” and you sardonically smile and are like “yeah,yeah whatever Gandhi“? (apparently it wasn’t him who said that- who would have thought the internet would lie?). Well, I used to be like that until I broke free of the social conditioning which made me hide my … Continue reading OOTD: Da Goth Unchained โ›“๏ธ๐Ÿ”—

Eleganza Lethargica ๐Ÿ˜ด๐Ÿ’ƒ

My sleeping patterns have become as deranged as Boris’ hair; and in turn, I have become as lethargic as the comatose people addicted to the BBC’s fearful programming. Still, there is solace to be found in being able to dress up … for a dressing down? A brain which is chemically engineered towards depression like mine doesn’t fare well at all with lack of sleep. … Continue reading Eleganza Lethargica ๐Ÿ˜ด๐Ÿ’ƒ

I Am from The Hood … ๐Ÿง™๐Ÿ”ฎ

And I cannot wait to change neighborhood! Between the extortionate rent I am paying for a non-existent city life, and the attempts at emotional extortion from my craplord – I have had enough, Donna Summers style. This week, this mumbling idiot had the audacity to send me an email asking me to lie to the loss adjusters who are due to come to the flat … Continue reading I Am from The Hood … ๐Ÿง™๐Ÿ”ฎ

Bloomin’ From Ear to Ear ๐ŸŒน๐Ÿ˜

They say that misery loves company … well my misery likes jewellery! Actually, despite the world going to total shit (the virus has now mutated into a dictatorship), I am feeling rather good. Groovy. Gleeful. Gothilicious! Today I received part one of a rather large Etsy purchase … Hey, just because I am not going to be part of the Vax Vax Klan, doesn’t mean … Continue reading Bloomin’ From Ear to Ear ๐ŸŒน๐Ÿ˜

Lรถรถkbook : Space Odyssey …๐Ÿ›ธ๐Ÿš€

… away from the backgarden? I am sick to death of my back garden, that place is a whole damn mess and it has gotten worse as builders have dropped some of their tools ahead of fixing the back wall next week. Oh yes, there has been ridiculous drama with the pterodactyl living two floors up from me, but like the Thunderous Terminator I am, … Continue reading Lรถรถkbook : Space Odyssey …๐Ÿ›ธ๐Ÿš€
