Easter Weekend!

My Easter Weekend... 🦇🦇🦇

Gothemian Goddess 🖤🦇 ~ went to my lovely friends Wedding, wore the most amazing dress she actually spotted for me a few years back while out Vintage shopping. Layered lots of Gypsy necklaces and a nose chain which I should wear more often 🖤 

Decorated Bunnies ~ by adding sugar FANGS and BLOOD drips, ate Specked Eggs we buy from Koko Black every year, these eggs are the best 🥚🐰🖤

Vampire Bitten GOTH Cross Buns~ I like to keep things Spooky and interesting in our home, we live a Gothic/Vampire lifestyle everyday of our lives and I wouldn't have it another way 🖤👵🏻🧛🏻‍♀️🦇⚰️💉     

These Hot Cross Buns are Apple and Cinnamon flavour 🖤

My Easter outfit for dinner with my family ~ I love my 70s Prairie blouses 👵🏻🖤 This one is black and white gingham with a bit of lace and tiny pastel flowers I thought was perfect for an Easter Vamp look 🖤🐰

My lovely new faux fur Black coat my parents bought me for me birthday 🖤 I always sew on a brooch, usually a Spider 🕷🕷🕷

40 and Fabulous!

On Tuesday the 16th of April ~ I turned 40!!! Yep 40 and Fabulous ⚰️🎀🕷👵🏻🦇🧛🏻‍♀️🕸👻

I had a family gathering on the Sunday and then on the Tuesday, my husband and I went to my favourite Tearoom Miss Marple's in Sassafras, we also did as little Tea shopping at Tea Leaves and bought some Spooky goodies from the Oracle. I had such a wonderful birthday, got spoilt rotten by my husband, family and friends 🖤 words can not describe how thankful and grateful I am for all the love, gifts and messages I received, thank you!!! 💋


My beautiful friends over at www.atomiccakes.com.au made me the most incredible Granny Goth/Mary Poppins cake, it was absolutely amazing and so delicious! 🎂🖤

My wonderful cake from Atomic Cakes ~ thank you so much guys, love you both! 🖤


My Spooky outfit for my birthday family gathering ~ I look like Tylette from The Blue Bird (1940) 🐾🖤🦇




Totally in my element at Miss Marple's Tearoom ~ I love this tearoom because it's covered in pictures of the Original Miss Marple, Margaret Rutherford my very favourite Marple 👵🏻🎀

My cute little outfit for our day out in Sassafras ~ 1960s Flower Power blouse 🖤




Absolutely SPOILT by my wonderful husbandthank you so much my darling, this has been the best birthday ever! 🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤

Rosemary's Baby!

My outfit for my Dad's birthday family get together ~ this 1960s blue blouse was a nightgown, so naturally I turned it into a blouse and I LOVE it, especially the colour! It reminds me of Rosemary's Baby (1968) 🦇💙

Flower Power!

Unpicked these amazing 60s floral squares ~ I’ve had this patchwork fabric for quite some time, I unpick the squares and pop them in frames to display around my home, it's a great little DIY idea if you're looking for a touch of Flower Power! 🦇🔮🦇


They look lovely ~ every room in our house is slightly different 🖤

Our decor is mainly Gothic and Spooky, Old World Charm, Antique, Graveyard Inspired, Granny Goth, Doll House and a nice splash of 60's and 70's! 🦇🔮

Thought i'd add some picks of parts of my wardrobe seeing the colours are similar in this post ~ lots of blouses, some dresses, coats and short black skirts 🖤🔮

I always were black skirts with all my blouses, love the pop of colour these Vintage blouses give me ~ but the rest of me needs to be BLACK, black hair, black skirts, black stockings and black shoes.

The psychedelic blouses are most fun to wear and are very Mod Goth which I love, though my most favourite blouses are my 60s~70s Victorian Revival pieces, anything to look like a Dark Shadows character from the original Gothic soap opera ⚰️

I still wear my plaid skirts from time to time and I like wearing those with Horror and 70s inspired t-shirts 🖤 but my everyday look for home or work and running errands etc. is all black, a short black skirt and a Spooky Tee 🧛🏻‍♀️⚰️🖤🕷🕸👻     

Bottom line... i'm a GOTH and that foundation will never change, I just like to decorate myself 🔮

Vampire Outings!

A jam-packed weekend full of adventures ~ attended a craft event where I bought an amazing Addams Family cross stitch. Went to a lovely gig to see an old school Goth Band. Had dinner with our darling friends at a Get Smart themed restaurant 🖤 Wore the cutest and craziest blouse that reminds me of The Brady Bunch with DIY Flower Power buttons I sewed on ~ I've always been Bewitched by the 60s and 70s style, sound, aesthetic and when not listening to my beloved Metal or Goth music I'm in the deepest realms of 60s~70s Occult Rock and Doom! 🔮🐍

Elder Goths!

What Elder Goths do ~ just because 40 is only a few weeks away, it doesn't mean you gotta put all your Spooky Stuff in a box, NO!!! It just get better with age I think, well for me it does anyway; in the way of style and living more of a Granny Goth life 🖤

Black flowers? Hell yes!! For someone that makes Black Roses (me) will fall in love at the drop of a BAT, when I find seeds for Black flowers, all Goths have Black hearts and that will never change! 🖤

When you arrive at this age a lot of things change and you appreciate more of a quiet atmosphere, reading all your favourite Spooky books and drinking tea rather than getting wasted all the time and believe me, I've lived the WILD life where I was wasted all the time on Absinthe! I had a major addiction to drinking the Green Fairy and I loved every minute of it! (don't give Absinthe to a fiery Aries hahaha) I have no regrets and everything has it's cycle ~ I had to go through it. I've since then walked away from that partying life and only drink Absinthe a few times a year on special occasions and it will forever be my favourite POISON, I just don't need to drink it like I used to. I got so tired and very bored and felt like the essence of that atmosphere and lifestyle had left the building long ago and so did I, so at age 33, I said no more to destroying my body with that amount of Alcohol! 

I'll be 40 in April ~ I still love going to Metal gigs 🖤 and some Goth nights. 

How funny, drinking tea out of a Black Metal mug? Hahaha yes 🖤 Not all Goths like Metal but I do! I was once very involved in the Metal scene and even ran a Extreme Metal night. I love Gothic and Metal music equally and been a Metal chick since I was a kid. Music is so important in our lives and there are so many other genres I love too but Goth and Metal is my life and listen to on a daily basis. 

Things change for the better and I'm a better me! At this age now, I feel that I've been there and done that, almost lived 9 life's like a Cat 🐾 What I guess I'm trying to say is, don't ever be afraid of age, we all go through it! If you are true to yourself, you'll always be you and you'll never need to give up Goth because of a number, Goth is forever but you'll do it better as you become that Elder 🖤🦇
