Spring fever

Spring fever

“It’s spring fever. That is what the name of it is. And when you’ve got it, you want—oh, you don’t quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!”
― Mark Twain

Return of the Sun

Return of the Sun

The days are slowly getting longer and we are on our way to spring. Thankfully, because I could really use some warm weather and a good dose of sunlight.

I’ve been missing out on a lot, forgive me for this. Today I found that the Gothic Garage Sale hunt was still on until the 3rd of February, so I made sure to pick up some fun items to dress up in. Every hunt prize is for only 5L and there is a lot of shopping to do at the event itself!

Monday blues

Monday blues

Mondays, Mondays… I can’t really say that other days have been easier for me, but Monday’s are usually the worst!

To fix this little blues I had going on, I visited the Gothic Garage Sale & Hunt to find some affordable goodies to cheer myself up. If you hunt down the little black cats that are hiding all over the place, you can get yourself some really nice items, like this fancy hair from EscalateD and this cute dress from Get Frocked.

Happy hunting.

Glamour

Glamour

I once visited Chicago. It was a pretty special trip. Sort of those once in a lifetime things. I packed carefully… fancy dresses, high heels, and an expensive pair of sunglasses. I only packed one pair of blue jeans for that trip because I knew I wouldn’t be needing comfortable clothes. I was going on a trip I knew I would never forget… a trip that was all about glamour and a world outside my own.

I remember finding out that if you slip the host extra money, you don’t have to have reservations… even if the restaurant claims that you do. I remember learning that if you have a special key in the right hotel… there are secret upper floors that take you to the penthouse. And that they hold parties up there sometimes for VIPs. I remember the food… little shrimps in martini glasses, olives settled upon squares of cheeses I didn’t know the names of, caviar and patte with fancy crackers, fine wines and champagne.

I wore a black dress of course, with the back cut out. And I was probably the only woman there wearing black lipstick. I was easily the youngest woman there among the crowd. It was a host of executives and their dates, and I stood out with my long hair in curls piled up on my head and my tattoos and my fancy sunglasses. I’ll never forget the couple who came up to me and my date and began chatting as if we were all old friends and asked me what I did. And my date told her I was a writer. It was mostly true.

These free gifts on Astrid remind me of that glamorous night… one I’ll never forget. Glittering and golden and filled with dreams. A night to be savored like the wine that I sipped from a crystal glass with my date that night.
