Travel: Sofia, Bulgaria Day 1

Hiya all,
although I’ve been busy most of the time with YT, that doesn’t mean I’m going to abandon my blog. My first love is photography, and I’m gonna keep posting whenever I can, it’s just that, you know, editing the pics takes a lot of time.
So now I finally took some time to edit the pics from Bulgaria, although I have to admit there aren’t as many. Mostly just outfits of the day, and not many pics of the actual city.
The thing that I liked most about Sofia is that you can see the mountain Vitosha basically from every part of the city, so I had to take a quick pic on the run.
I was there only for three days. The first day was a national holiday, so we spent it at a friends house.
Then at night we went clubbing, drank some cheap shots (that were mostly water if you ask me!)

P.S. Sorry that the pics are shaky, just like the cocktails 😀

Killin’ It: How to Wear a Graphic Tee

how to wear a graphic tee goth girl scene grunge glam animal print gray lilac hair choker septum ring
Outfit details:Killin’ It T-shirt: WSDear – click here
Black tiara: H&M
Septum ring: Bershka
Leopard fur coat: New Yorker
Suspenders skater skirt: Sammydress
Rhinestone choker: Tally Weijl
Ankle boots: Replay
Time for my last outfit from the “winter” photoshoot (needless to say I was freezing, you can see it in my face, I can’t hide emotions. 


The last T-shirt I got from WSDear is the same one that was in the giveaway. It’s just too cool, I had to have one for me as well. You can check out all their tops here.
Now because it’s so cool, I believe a lot of bloggers have already done lots of different variations of this outfit, so of course I had to add my own personal twist to it. 
First of all let me say that graphic Tees are probably my favorite wardrobe staple because it’s so versatile. I wear it in the summer, in winter with a cardigan and a cami underneath, during the day with skinny jeans and creepers, and in the evening I glam it up with a statement necklace or choker plus some other jewelry. 
For some reason I always feel sad when I see an empty neck L I remember once I was going out with a friend and she wore this plain white Tee with some slogan, and I begged her to put on at least a simple chain necklace 😀 She refused.)
Anyway, the only problem with this Tee is that I took the biggest size so it’s a bit longer and wider. An easy way to solve this would be to tuck it in a high waist skirt. Luckily I have my suspenders skater skirt I got from Sammydress, which practically works as a waist cincher, as it accentuates the curves. The material of the shirt is very pleasant cotton. 
All in all, you can’t go wrong with a graphic Tee with some cool slogan, a flashy necklace and a fabulous jacket (especially if it’s contrasting like this leopard one).
Do you like graphic Tees? How do you wear them?

Blogiversary Special OOTD & What Not to Do As a Blogger

thigh high boots outfit idea lilac hair silver hail emo scene hair harness goth girl
Outfit details:
Velvet thigh high boots: see HERE
Rose gold watch: see HERE
Leather harness: see HERE
Veil & fur coat: H&M
Rings: Sixx
Bracelets & skirt: New Yorker
Skulls bag: Banned
I’m back with the second outfit I wanted to show you – how to wear thigh high boots! This outfit is all about boots and accessories, and I got it all from – Zaful.

Zaful is a huge online store, with an especially big selection of shoes and accessories. I mean it, when you start browsing, you won’t know where to stop. The second think I liked is that they have bigger size shoes, which is not the case on other Chinese online shops. I’ve wanted thigh-high boots for quite some time, and with a normal heel, so I immediately decided to take these ones. They are very comfy, the heel is only about 6cm, so you can wear them every day They are also warm and lined up with thin fur inside but I definitely plan on wearing them in the spring as well. The lace at the top is adjustable, so really anyone can wear them.
I’m also obsessed with rose gold, so I decided to take this watch, and it’s a beautiful piece of jewelry, though I don’t wear it every day. It also works perfectly.
The 3rd thing I got is the goth-nugoth musthave – a harness. Don’t ask me why, but I started to really like chokers, so I got this “extended version”, though still minimalistic.
The shipping time was about a month, again because of the holidays, and also the customs. The customer service at Zaful is also great and very polite.

The second part of my post is about my 2nd  blogiversary, which was in fact three weeks ago, but whatever.
Besides the marketing that I studied at the University, I’ve been really working on expanding my skills, taking an internet marketing course, reading a lot, listening to seminars and webinars. I’m always eager to expand my activity –  I tried Snapchat yesterday, I’m working on my video making skills, I’m always looking for something new, besides and related to my job. So, always expect something new and exciting from me :p

The blogiversary means also– time for a rant!
Though I’ve already talked about this, it’s never too much, because new stuff is always surfacing:

WHAT NOT TO DO AS A BLOGGER
Most of this stuff seems pretty obvious, but the fact that people are still doing it makes me think it should still be pointed out.

1.      Don’t make blogger enemies
If someone wants to help you, respect that. You never know when you’re gonna need someone. Do not get into unnecessary arguments.

2.      Don’t unfriend/unfollow bloggers
Remember what I said about making enemies? Don’t do it. Believe me, I remember everything.

3.       Don’t friend colleagues bloggers on FB

Only to spy on them. Facebook is something private, so if you added them as a friend, it goes without saying you should follow them publicly on the blog as well. If you’re there just lurking and not showing mutual support – it’s obvious what you’re doing.

4.       Don’t follow/unfollow on Instagram

I know it’s been said a million times, and you think “well I’m not the one who’s gonna change the system”, then no one will. I follow the account I like even if they unfollowed me. There’s something to be learned from everyone. So if I have the courtesy to check out your profile, you should do the same, otherwise – how are you better than me?

5.       Don’t sell yourself short

This is another one I’m gonna keep repeating until the last one understands. Don’t do a post for $10, you are doing a disservice to the whole blogging industry. If you keep letting Chinese companies exploit you, you won’t go any further than that, and I know ya’ll dreaming of becoming rich and wearing Dior, well, it’s not gonna happen, unless you build your brand with integrity.

6.       “Nice post. NOW GO CHECK OUT MINE – LOOK HERE CLICK HERE: WWW.SOMEB*TCHWHOKNOWSNOTHINGABOUTMARKETING.BLOGSPOT.COM”

-Don’t leave comments like this! I have nothing against putting a link to your blog, actually I appreciate it so I can respond, but please, this is spammy and insulting

7.  “I was just browsing through the net for wedding dresses and found this great store…”

Really? You’re getting married 4 times a year? Congratulations!
Seriously, don’t treat your audience like we’re stupid. Tell us if it’s a sponsored post.
I hope you find this helpful and don’t take it the wrong way. After all, blogging is making your online brand.
What do you think about all this?

Glam Punk Outfit

Outfit details:
I don’t Trust Me Either Top: see HERE
Veil: H&M
Rhinestone choker: Tally Weijl
Sequin blazer: SheIn
Tutu and boots: local shops <3

Happy Valentine’s day if you celebrate it, and if you don’t, like myself. treat yourself to something nice. Get your favorite drink, try a new lipstick, eat pizza or buy yourself something nice online! Now kids, I’m not advocating financial irresponsibility here, but there’s some really nice affordable stuff out there, and I’m here to prove it!

Anyway, I finally managed to do some outfit shoots. I wanted to show you this stuff that I got about a month ago, but unfortunately all my photographers called in sick. 😀 I have three outfit posts coming up ad the first one is a top from WSDear. I got two tops from them. You can check out their other tops here.
I chose the largest sizes they had, but this one turned out a little small, and the other one, which you’re about to see later, turned out too big. The stuff arrived in about a month, which is OK considering it was the holidays.
All in all, I’m satisfied with the shirt, and though it says that polyester on the label I’d assume it’s cotton blend, a pretty comfortable material actually, not like the plastic shirts you’d expect for such a low price. I picked this shirt because it’s an edgy graphic top suitable for every day.
The staff at WSDear is also really nice, and answers all your questions.

What do you think? Do you like my new hair (it was supposed to be gray, but turned out lilac/blue, I love it)?
I’m also obsessed with these silver glitter combat boots and rhinestone chokers (or anything silver, or anything that glitters)!

Travel: Vienna New Year’s Eve

Last piece of Vienna posts I owe you is right here. Since it’s my favorite place, it’s only natural that I spent the New Year’s eve there. I don’t expect much of a”party” anyway, I think best nights happen when you least expect them.

What I do know, however, is that shopping never let me down, that is, until now. We came to Vienna at around 10 AM so I thought we’d have plenty of time. Turns out, most boutiques closed around 2 PM, and believe me, 4 hours is NOT enough for me to go through the stuff and try on clothes! I could literally do it all day, even without a cent in my pocket! Other than the little shopping mishap, I had a lovely day, which ended at Graben at midnight drinking eggnog. Then we had to rush to the bus that was leaving at like 1 AM.
 Also, since I was spending the New Years’ outside I wore my fancy Poizen Industries Alice coat, which you can find at RebelsMarket here.
In the near future, expect to see some outfit posts (sorry about the delay), and my next adventure will be Bulgaria, where I’m going to see my beloved Diary of Dreams! <3
How did you spend the New Year’s Eve?

Travel: Spittelberg Christmas Market & Grinzing

You can find my KISS shirt on RebelsMarket here

Hello from me after a long time. I don’t know why, but I’ve been busier than usual. Not like I ever leave the house though, haha. Anyway, my blogiversary is coming so I expect to do some writing then. For now, I still owe you the second part of my Vienna Christmas market trip.

This time we visited the Spittelberg Christmas market. Which is actually weird to me, because it consists of a number of smaller markets in narrow streets, I’ve never even heard of it before. We went on to do some shopping at the nearby handmade craft stores, and to drink some punch.

I wanted to spend my last day in Vienna at my favorite place in the world – Grinzing. We had a glass of wine, took a couple of pics, and it was already time to go.
Btw, you can see how I used a different method of editing my pics (they used to be more saturated before, let me know how you like it!
How did you spend the holidays?

I finally decided to post all pics from Schattenwelt Festival on my blog. Schattenwelt is the only gothic festival in Austria, and why is it important? Because I finally got to see my favorite band  – Diary of Dreams! I also got to meet the singer Adrian Hates, the most beautiful talented man in the world, in my humble opinion, and the lovely Sven Friedrich of Solar Fake
Besides DoD and Solar Fake, I got to see the EBM legend Suicide Commando. Words can’t describe how I felt, BUT if you want to READ about it – I wrote an article about the full experience for RebelsMarket – check it out here.

Are you a fan of these bands? Have you been to any gothic festivals?

Here are all my pics and videos:
