MY BLOGGING KIT


So I just want to put it out there that I am not a professional and in no way qualified to be giving advice what so ever. That being said, I have been blogging for around 15 months now and I've picked up so many useful tips/ tricks that has really helped me improve the quality of my blogging- things I wish I had known back in the beginning! I asked all you lovely peeps who follow me on Twitter whether this would be something you would want to read and surprisingly you did- so your wish is my command!

SO LONG SUMMER


So I feel like summer didn't really happen! As per usual, Britain hasn't been the best for weather this year. Although, I do remember having a few days where I honestly felt like I was going to melt and end up a lil like the witch in Wizard of Oz! So, I guess we've had a bit of summer but I have definitely noticed a change in temperature, with me already having to grab for my woolley jumpers!

YOU'VE CHANGED


"You've changed" is a phrase I've never known how to take. Do they mean change as in a good change? Or a bad change? And what do they even mean by change? The thing about change is that most of the time we don't recognise it's even happened because for us it might be something that happens gradually. Change can mean an instant change like a haircut or it could be a change that occurs gradually like weight loss or building confidence. I've been thinking about personal change recently and how I have undergone quite a big change over the years.

GRAVEYARDS AND LACE


Yes, the title of this post was a terrible attempt at a pun for my blog name. You're welcome. So, you might be able to hint from my blog name that I love lace. Fashion has always been an area I have loved and enjoyed learning about, from different styles of clothing all the way to individual material. Lace is without a doubt, my favourite fabric of clothing and I always find myself being drawn to items of clothing that are made of lace.

DATING IN 2017 IS A JOKE


If you are in a relationship then you probably don't realise just how easy you have it. For all my single ladies (and gents!) I think we can all agree the absolute shit fest that is dating in 2017. I for one, have had enough of trying to find a man and if I'm honest I think it would be easier and less painful to have a vital organ removed than to find myself a guy!

MY BEST GOTH SELF


So just putting it out there- this may be my most goth fashion post yet! Goth fashion has become a huge part of this blog and I absolutely love showcasing different styles of gothic fashion with you. This weeks blog post is pretty special as it showcases the bag of all my goth dreams!!

I GRADUATED



So, this week I hit a pretty huge life milestone. I finally graduated! On Thursday I graduated with a 1st class honours degree in Primary Education and it was a pretty huge moment for me! I have changed so much over the past three years and for everything I have been working towards to finally come to this was just a pretty amazing and overwhelming feeling!

END OF AN ERA


When this post goes live it will be a day before my graduation. I still kinda can't believe that I made it through university or that my three years of studying are over. It's gone so unbelievably fast and for me finishing university marks the end of an era, I guess. In a good way! I changed so much during my time at university, it changed me as a person and allowed me to become the person I have always wanted to be.

WOODSTOCK 69


What?! An outfit post that features hardly any black! I know, I'm just as shocked as you are. However, there is a story behind this. So, I'm a primary school teacher and the school I work in have a summer concert every year with a different theme, some of the past themes have been- decades, the west end, the jubilee etc. The theme for this years concert is Woodstock. 

GOALS CHECK


How are we half way through 2017 already?! This year is going so incredibly fast and I don't quite know whether I can keep up! It seems like a few weeks ago that I published my LOOKING FORWARD TO 2017 post, in which I created a list of the things I wanted to accomplish this year.
