Personal blog with a heavy metal twist, gothic soundtrack, twisted stories and rock and roll frocks. Tales of my life in London, with a lot of of sarcasm and goth couture! **No Kiss fans were harmed in the making of this blog.**

I feel like this week has been bipolar as hell, but then again, it looks like the manic highs and lows have got to be expected within this period of human history called “2020”. At this stage, I do genuinely believe that the Aliens who were supposed to harvest us after covid, took a peek at our planet, peeped the assholes in charge and opted to do a u-turn straight to Uranus instead.
At work, my stress levels have reached Rammstein Feuer Frei levels – fire and ashes included – as I am still expected to lead on projects and tasks I have had no time to absorb. I also have no support. The anxiety makes my skin feel like it is literally self-combusting, and on top of it, the stress makes my stomach clench so bad, I feel like I am getting a free gastric bypass. Oh, a positive, right?!
I have decided to take a rational approach to it, and to only do what I can. This approach is also known as ‘Fuck This Shit But Pay My Shit Too’.
In other news, I still haven’t had my hair fixed – and you know it is apocalyptically bad when I gotta whip a wig AND a hoodie.
Yes, I forgot to do my nails. Look over there!
In other news, I went back to the music studio, and I decided to try something different : Livin’ on a Prayer by Bon Jovi.
Results? Holy Lemmy, I need my VOCAL LESSONS back stat! Whilst I think I can pull off the main bits of the song, I wouldn’t have thought that the chorus would be such a pain in the vocal chords to drop … The ‘Whoa-ah‘ hurts my soul, my ears and my larynx, every time I try to blurt it. However, my teacher is currently ill, so for now … * your homegirl is hidin’ and livin’ on a prayer *
I have also done my first venture back into the moving fart incubator aka the London Underground, aka the tube!
And why did I do that? To get to Primark of course! No, not really. I was actually feeling really crappy that day – the boring lockdown routine does not agree with me – so I decided to say ‘fuck it’ (peeps : do not take a shot every time I say it) and brave the shopping experience.
Oh – and I also got my first coffee post lockdown in Pret A Manger – YAAAASSSSSSS!
I am in two minds about recording a video about it all, I will decide tomorrow (let me know :D). For now, I got to go to sleep, and get ready for another professional carnage!

Good day folks!!
My latest video is now up on my channel, just a late night chat about social media, work tea and there is even some fashion at the end!
As always, I welcome any comments and feedback, and if you have any topics you’d want me to discuss, please let me know!
… And a bit of warning … swearing is included, as always!

Who says Goths don’t like pink? I don’t know who, and frankly, IDGAF. After all, it is most definitely better to be a flamingo in a sea of pigeons, and I am definitely fulfilling a pink bird fantasy over here.
I had an intense day at work earlier in the week (tea shall be spilled over the weekend) and as a result decided to forego thrashing the house, and instead paint myself THE HOUSE!
The jacket is from Boohoo. I will not link it because I have decided that I won’t be purchasing from Boohoo again due to their shady unethical practices which have been recently highlighted. Say what you want about Primark, but they have ramped up their ethical stance and practices. Until everybody sorts out their practices, I am keeping my hard earned pounds away.
The belt is from Restyle and the dress from Killstar. I hardly buy from Restyle because unfortunately the cut of their clothing seems to be legit made for scarecrows : ain’t no space for the booty, and your girl has a Mediterranean derriere.
The boots are from Demonia, wig from Amazon and earrings from Ebay. These boots are comfy as hell, and I am really looking forward to Autumn when I can wear them again. Any other time of the year is a big ol’ no-no : nobody wants to slip the house down on platforms during soggy British winters, OR be boiling the house down in the one day of heatwave that blesses the UK once in a while.
I shot this to make myself feel better after a big bout of anxiety, and I succeeded! I highly recommend transformation through fashion and make up. I think thats why I love drag queens so much. Their talent and fierceness is always SO inspiring to me. To quote Miss Lushious Massacr …. THE GIRLS ARE HERE TO BATTLE!
PS: I am going to be recording and uploading a Vlog this weekend so I shall see you there!

… Some days I belt out rockin’ anthems, some days I rock out belts. And y’all, these three are coming hooooooome (Ozzy Osbourne style).
ASOS is having a sale, and despite the fact that I am broke as hell, I had to get them!
At the time of posting, these are still up, hence me sharing during office working hours.
It’s a short as hell post, but it’s the thought that counts?
Your Bargain Boo reporting for duty, always!

Is this the real life … or are we still in 2020??
Fuck, we are still in 2020 * cries in diary *
Ugh, this year just does not want to STOP with the fuckery. And yes, there are two expletives already in this post, and well – they are going to stay and be accompanied by the relevant photo, because otherwise there would be more expletives.
Plus, they do say that a picture is worth a thousand words, and I believe this one does the job.
The latest twist of 2020, is that the lady who hired me, and who is one of the key reasons I accepted this remote job (it is very important for me to have a boss I can count on), has announced to me on Friday that she had resigned … and will be gone in 2 weeks! We got on extremely well, and had even discussed going for drinks after Miss Corona got extradited back to Bill Gates’s evil lab. Whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy??
This means that I will literally be dropped in extremely complicated projects with no support, and no-one to help me as I am still learning the systems. The few people I have told just don’t understand how stressful this is. Being at home is great, but not when you are thrown in the deep end and cannot have a quick chat with your colleagues and shadow them as a newbie. Also the projects are HARD, and very technical (feelin’ sorry for me yet?).
The other layer to this evil cake, is that it also gives me shady vibes about the place, since she was only in that job for 6 months and is actually extremely good at it. The plot thickens…
In other news, I posted my first actual YouTube video, and my inner demon is cringeing at the wrong lighting I used and the choppy editing, BUT i am leaving it up because it is a bad trait of mine I am trying to work on. I am EXTREMELY self critical to the point of paralysing myself from doing things, so I am working internally to be less harsh and just go with the flow.
On this note, I am going back to the STUDIO tomorrow !!! So happy to get my padded cell back, I might even do a little vlog there. With that said, stay tuned, and in tune!
Dress : Jawbreaker
Boots: New Rock
Earrings : Topshop

Yassss my first ever video is up
I am not abandoning the blog, only expanding the marks I am leaving onto the giant catwalk known as Planet Earth !
I am learning A TON about YouTubing in the process, and whilst the technical parts can be a pain in the booty, I am really looking forward to honing the art of solo ranting on camera. Plus, I have a comfortable chair.
In the meantime, I gotta share some of my latest buys … New Rocks for less than €100? Yes ma’am – I cannot wait to receive these! At €60 a pop, I could NOT not get them.
Then, onto some Etsy purchases.
How CUTE is this bat?? I only got it because it is cute as hell, and when the world around you is turning ugly, a cute bat always helps, right? From Kitty Dragon.
Some more earrings because … Because. They are from Rainbow Tree Creations.
Finally some badass stuff from one of my favourite Etsy seller : Rock and Rose Artwork.
Everything will be showcased on video soon, after I manage to sort the 1980’s video and audio. I love vintage, but there is a limit!
