So we can play a game. It’s called, “Is There a God?”

One of my favourite things to do is walk around graveyards, especially old ones. No matter if Christian, Jewish or whatever, I think it’s so interesting how graves were designed and the stories behind both the people and the graveyard as a whole. And it always has a rather calming effect on me, because usually there are a lot less people walking around compared to parks. However at least the graveyard near me is almost a park – it hasn’t been used as a graveyard in decades, they take care of the flowers and placed a couple of benches all over the area.

Of course, it also makes my Wednesday Addams heart rejoice to visit graveyards. In general her dark fashion inspires me a lot at the moment, I’m not sure I’d wear black everyday, but I adore her appearance. But, to be honest, I also consider her character rather inspiring. She does her thing and follows her way through life. The way the whole family is okay with being weird, different, can mean a lot to people who don’t always fit in – life would be a lot easier if more families were like the Addams. Especially the loving relationship of Gomez and Morticia really shows how being true to oneself can make life a whole lot better – after all none of their kids have any personal issues either.

I really want to cosplay Wednesday one day, her appearance is very iconic and I would wear her dress in reallife. Nevertheless I think this dress would be approved as well, it has some Edwardian influences (at least I tried to convey them) – and of course it’s all black. Sure, my almost paper white skin (and those black circles that look like I crept out of a grave) adds to that Edwardian not-so-sorry widow effect. Which of course closes the circle to the Addams family graveyard. I guess I will watch one of the movies tonight.

Discovering Krakow | a few Impressions and a bit of a guide

Krakow Impressions
In July I went to Krakow with a dear friend, it was rather spontanous, but it was a great idea! The city is really lovely and wonderful to explore by foot. We also had fantastic weather, though it was almost too warm. So, today I wanted to share a couple of photos and ideas what to do in Krakow. Of course we also went to Auschwitz and Birkenau, but we considered it inappropriate to take photos and instead just listened to our six hour guide, which was very informative and very well done. The only downside was that there were [understandably] a lot of people and some of them were acting (a bit/very) disrespectful.

The main square, Rynek, is quite beautiful, but tourist-y (in general Krakow is not as full of tourists as Rome or London, but on those main attractions there are still lots of visitors), so if you want to have a quick getaway, you can visit the Gallery of 19th-Century Polish Art in the Sukiennice (Muzeum Narodowe w Krakowie Galeria Sztuki Polskiej XIX wieku w Sukiennicach) on top of the cloth hall. Of course, 19th century art is my favourite and this gallery was really beautiful inside and out. There is also a lovely café (Cafe Szał) on top of those halls, which has a great view over the square, delicious food and drinks and isn’t even crowded with tourists. You get there through the entrance of the museum as well, but you don’t need a ticket for the café.

krakow Bazylika Mariacka
Nearby is also the tower of the town hall (Muzeum Historyczne Miasta Krakowa – Wieża Ratuszowa) which you can climb and gives you a good view over the city too. I’m pretty sure there is a theatre downstairs which sounds wonderful. Another mustsee is the Bazylika Mariacka, a beautiful, extravagant church on the inside and I love those colours. If you want to take pictures, you have to buy a licence though (it’s rather cheap and I think for such a stunning church that is really okay).

Krakow Amber Museum
Amber is really popular in Poland, so there is even an Amber Museum close too the main square (well basically everything is close to Rynek), it’s for free, features some great artwork and you can also buy some beautiful pieces there.

Krakow Kazimierz Streetmarket
One of the most beautiful parts of Krakow is definetly Kazimierz/the Jewish Quarter, it is really calm and besides adorable café there are also lovely streetfood markets around almost every corner. Compared to food at home/in most cities I visited so far it’s very affordable, cheap considering what you get (e.g. freshly made chimney cake with a sort of ice cream, caramel cream and caramel bisquits for 13zl/3€). We also visited a very cute Vintage Store – though there are a lot more cute shops in that quarter, Vintage Classics. They sell both Vintage pieces and pieces made from Vintage fabric (with Vintage cuts), I found two adorable hats there and the sales assistant was too nice. It’s a bit of a long walk toward’s Oskar Schindler factory (especially if you have been walking all day long and have to walk back afterwards), but it adds to the experience.



It would have been a great place to take your bike too, but we only took them riding aroung Planty, the park area and on the day we went to Zakrzówek Lake. It is a bit difficult to get to the place where you are allowed to swim, but it is worth it and the ride is beautiful too. I won’t attempt to explain it, because I’m terrible with directions, but the way along the river and through the woods, maybe even hiking a bit is lovely.

Krakow Collegium Maius

Another highlight for me was Collegium Maius, I mean, I love old universities, but that one was especially beautiful with all the scientific instruments and the amazing ceilings. There are a lot of tours and you can book yours right when you are there. Matching the theme of education, there are lots of antiquarian bookshop all over the city and easy to spot.


Wavel Castle we only managed to look at from the outside (and walk through the fantastic church), because there were so many people waiting in line (at both cash points). Mind you, it was a Thursday and we were rather early, so that was a disappointment. Especially since it is not possible to buy the tickets beforehand, so I don’t know if you want to see the castle, get in line two hours before it opens or something like that.


I really enjoyed Krakow, especially the food (will blog about that too). Have you been there and if so what did you enjoy most?

Apparently, there is this myth about moths being dead spirits. Well vengeful bad spirits, but since I think moths are lovely and beautiful, let’s just say spirits of any kind. I love that idea, moths are mainly found during night time, looking for light, I can imagine them being ghosts of people that passed recently. After all there are even moths with the image of a skull on the back.

Sure, those mainly remind me of Silence of the Lambs, but then again that movie is amazing. I can’t even say if I like the movie or TV show adaptation of Hannibal better. Of course, the TV show has Hugh Dancy and he is literally my favourite male eye candy. And it’s by Bryan Fueller, because he is an amazing show runner (thinking of, I have to continue American Gods). Anyway, I think moths work great with the genre in general, because they have this darkness and calmness at the same time.

Of course, moths also remind me of Animal Crossing, because as a kid I used to play AC in the evening, especially in summer and catching moths was always part of that. By now I also own my own little (or not so little, it’s actually rather big) moth and it looks a lot like the big one in Wild World. So besides me loving moths, and this on being beautiful, that is another plus. You can see it here, by the way.

In a way that also matched the gothic vibes Krakow has to it. However I cannot let this pass without mentioning how AMAZING this chimney cake (it’s actually a Czech thing, but whatever) with caramel cream, a sort of frozen yoghurt/ice cream and my favourite bisquits. Not only does it look like heaven, it was an utter dream come true. That’s probably why I look at it as if it was my one true love or my newborn.

Doyle – The Hound of the Baskervilles
After reading a lot while travelling in April I had to take a break (apparently), so my first finished book took more than two weeks, and it was – again – Sherlock Holmes. I am not through with all of them yet, but they are free on kindle, so every once in a while I pick one up. Even though I took so long, I liked this best so far of the series, because of Watson’s fantastic narrative and a rather interesting plot
goodreads review

Shelley – Matilda
As a lover of Frankenstein and especially the way Shelley writes, I had to read this one as well. The theme (incest) is one I personally don’t really enjoy reading about, but it was in no way uncomfortable/explicit – BECAUSE it’s not really the theme of the book. It’s a part, but actually this is a story about depression and loneliness. It tackles quite a few issues and does so rather well, especially the parts with the poets were really to my liking – but as a whole it’s such a beautiful and sad novella.
goodreads review

Streatfeild – Theater Shoes
This was the last of the four shoes books I own and still had to read. However it was likely my least favourite. I know when it was written, but the sexism really annoyed me nevertheless – and it’s basically another (rather disappointing) version of Ballet Shoes. My issues were mainly due to being a 21st century intersectional feminist, but I can’t change that, so I did not enjoy the book a lot.

Surprisingly I had a few issues reading this, because I expected it to be really fun, but it was rather serious, philosophical and made me think.

The Virago Book of Ghost Stories
Being into Gothic horror at the moment, I wanted to read this collection of stories. It was great to read so many stories by women, however also a bit disappointing since some of the stories were rather boring. However some wehere really good (you can read about the once I liked on goodreads).
goodreads review

Le Fanu – Carmilla
This gothic novel was amazing though – if you do not know anything about this yet and are interested, please just read it and do not read any reviews. But even though I knew a lot about, it was still amazing and if you want to know about, read my goodreads review.
goodreads review

Riggs – Library of Souls
Sure, admittedly I did not read book one and two, so I do not have the knowledge andemotional connection most people have, but I really did not like this book. This one showed me why I almost don’t read YA anymore. This was one boring store, bordering on cringey (some of the sentences were so awkward! And that’s a published writer with a movie). It seemed as if Riggs really wanted to show off just how smart he is and apparently how dumb most reader are by pointing out every single detail. The characters were hollow and their actions inconsistent, it was just terrible.
goodreads review

Streatfeild – Ballet Shoes
I have read this book quite often in my childhood and early teens and I really love it. It’s an easy, pleasant read with three fantastic MCs, especially Petrova and her interest in technology is so amazing. This book is probably one of the best children’s books and I think everyone should read this.
goodreads review

Reichhold – Ludwig Forever
My love/interest in Bavarian and Austrian royality in the 19th century is really big and of course Ludwig II is so fascinating. To be honest, though I expected this book to be a bit gossipy, but fortunately it was well researched and really good – shedding light on gossip and talking about possibilities, but not overdoing it. Even though I already knew quite a bit, I did gain a lot from this book.
goodreads review

Garden Poems
Another interesting – and better – collection was this book. Not all of them were amazing, but there were some gems and I found some new favourites. Especially greek poetry seems to be right up my alley. They did some great translation work in general in this book, even though some poems were a disappointment, in general this was a lovely collection.
goodreads review

Shelley – Frankenstein
I talked about this before, well actually very very often, but I just fell in love with this book, so I read this again. Everything about this is beautiful and I can just tell you (again) to read it for it’s writing, the atmosphere and characters.

Wollstonecraft – A Vindication of the Rights of Woman
Finally another piece of feminist literature again, the work of Shelley’s mum to be exact. She has very strong opinions and it’s very interesting to read thoughts of an 18th century suffragette. Of course I do not agree with everything she states, but it is still interesting to see what such a forward thinking woman thought – especially her thoughts on education are amazing.
goodreads review

Heine zum Vergnügen
Until this book I only read a couple of poems by Heine, but his work is so fantastic and now I want to read even more. His writing is very pleasant and there is so much fun and sarcasm, it’s perfect. Especially the part about travelling was quite lovely.
goodreads review

Lee – The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue
THIS was a dream! I loved everything about this story – it’s weird because actually this is not really what I usually read. However I’m happy with getting and reading this 18th century adventure story, and picking it up not only, but also because the boy on the cover looks a bit like a mix of Mr Bingley and Friedrich Schiller. It deals with so many important issues from homophobia and sexism to suicidal thoughts and abusive parents. Besides that the story itself is a lot of fun and it was so pleasant reading this (the writing is amazing!), joining the trio on their way through Europe (Venice <3). Especially since they aresome of the most elaborate and loveable book characters I've encountered recently (and I think in general) with so much emotionality. It's the story of the sarcastic protagonist Monty working his way through an impressive developement while adoring his wonderfully sensitive and strong friend Percy and quarrelling/coming to terms with his feminist, intelligent sister – all while touring to Europe having adventures.
goodreads review

Austen – Persuasion
Currently I’m on the verge of finishing this on. And so far this is the worst Austen book I read so far. Annoying characters and rather boring. Now towards the end, hearing about all the juicy details of the past it gets interesting, but other than that it’s really a bore so far.

That’s all for now. What did you read recently? Did you read any of the books I mentioned and if so what did you think about them?

she may not look like much, but she’s got it where it counts | Millennium Falcon Tattoo

Millennium Falcon Tattoo
In the beginning of July I got my third tattoo, the first one you can actually see most of the time, because it’s on my lower arm. A beautiful place for that matter, in my opinion. As with most of my ideas, I’ve planned that for months/years in a word document. Okay, I’m surprised I still don’t have an appointment for the Alice one, but then again I’m young. Anyway. This one is quite obviously for Star Wars, because I just love this franchise and especially the importance (and beauty) of this ship. I wanted TIE fighters and flowers around the ship and once again Ella did a wonderful, detailed job.

Tattoo Healing

At parts this one was surprisingly hurtful about where the violets are and my arm was slightly cramped the nest two days (might have been due to my slepping position though). Well, that cramp faded and it healed quite well, some parts took longer than the rest and now it looks really cute. Especially the yellow and red really pop from the grey ship. Well, I’m just happy with it, it’s exactly the way I wanted it and also, so many people told me how much they liked it. I think it will also blend in quite well with everything that’ll come due to the flowers (I’m pretty sure there will almost always be nature involved in my pieces in one way or another).

Another thing that was a bit weird was my arm hair growing back. I’m mean, it’s obivous that when you shave your hair (well, Ella did at the studio) that it’ll grow back, but I haven’t done that in years and having itchy stubble on a tattoo was not the most comfortable feeling. That of course is a petty problem, but I had to mention it. It took somewhere between two and three hours with some short pauses to move my hand.

Midcentury Fifties 50s Outfit Handmade Star Wars Millennium Falcon Irregular Choice Leia Tattoo

With this I also got a tragus piercing, something I wanted for a rather long time as well and it’s healing well. Also, how beautiful is that stone? I was a bit afraid of being pierced with a needle since it has been a few years since my helix and that was done with a gun (I know how bad that is, but back in the day I did not and luckily I never had any issue at all). However it barely hurt and so far everything is well.

Tragus Piercing opal

Valerian | Fangirl Friday

Last Sunday I went to see Valerian with my best friend. I wanted to for a long time, mainly because Dane DeHaan is one of my favourite actors, if not my favourite actor of this generation/age group. He is crazy talented and you know that if you saw Life, A Cure for Wellness or Kill Your Darlings. He is not crazy famous and most people still ask me who is is when I talk about him, but I push his movies on everyone, so…

I knew the general twist of the Valerian stories and their impact on the genre in general before watching the movie, but I did not read the comics so I can’t say if they did their origins justice. However I think it was a really enjoyable SciFi movie – it’s a Luc Besson movie, so I did not expect anything less. Especially in the scenes in the city life it feels a lot like the Fifth Element (which 20th anniversary is right around the corner) and I did appreciate that a lot. In general while the world building takes it’s time, it is worth that because not only does this slow pace make it possible to have a look at all those details and worlds, it also shows all the beautiful creatures. And they are so beautiful, the whole movie is quite aesthetic – to be honest only my favourite alien Tilda Swinton was missing (but then again I would like her to be in every SciFi movie).
The story seems like the typical adventure/superhero story, but it is a lot deeper in my opinion, because it does not just have a good guy/bad guy story line, but actually explores reasons, the bad on all sides and in general to me it seemed very much like questioning the fighting in general. It is much more diplomatic than a lot of the genre and I appreciate that. Of course, there is still fighting and female badassery, so I am okay with that. Due to that the movie is rather long (okay, I was also tired while watching it), but it’s very worth it.
Besides the beautiful colours and image I obviously loved that Dane DeHaan was the main character, I think he had better movies, but then again this movie is much less serious than my faves of his. Cara Delevingne was pretty good as well, especially since her character was pretty cool and she fit the role. I think/hope she’ll grow over time in her upcoming movies. A highlight of course was Rihanna’s cameo/role. Not only did she look stunning, I think she did a fantastic job acting as well. And to be honest, that surprised me a bit, but in a very positive way.
As a whole this was a very enjoyable, chill movie, especially whe it comes to pictures and the harmony with the chosen music.

Now, I am excited for Tulip Fever, because it’s not only with Dane DeHaan, but also with one of my other favourites Christoph Waltz (not to mention Judi Dench and Alicia Vikander).

a few gothic favourites

Gothic Favourites
Currently I’m loving the Victorian idea of Gothic, I love gothic horror anyway, but I also really enjoy the aesthetic with the beautiful lace details and darkness. I did not show any below, but I also really enjoy Chokers at the moment (who is late on that train?), because I think they can add this Victorian vibe (of course that heavily depends on material etc.).

Gothic Favourites Bride of Frankenstein Funko Pop
My love for Frankenstein is very big and you know that, because I talk about it all the time. So, eventually I decided to get the 30s movies after falling in love with this beautiful Bride print at Comic Con. As it is the case every once in a while I also got the Funko Pop figurine. And to me this one is especially beautiful with the details on the dress – and of course, her big hair is too cute.

Gothic Favourites Bride of Frankenstein Pin Brooch Violets Sappho'S Club sapphic
I also love this Bride pin by Kate Gabrielle – which I turned into a brooch, because it’s something I rather wear. She also glows in the dark, which is a fantastic addition to this character in particular. The violets brooch is a sapphic symbol and I think it’s very dainty and beautiful.

Gothic Favourites Moth
This moth was a gift by my mother – I talked about this before on Instagram; I wanted to get it in the beginning of July after looking at it for weeks, but it wasn’t at the Antique shop anymore and I was quite sad. However mum had gotten it for me, because she is the loveliest. Moths are one of my favourite animals, and this one in particular also reminds me of Animal Crossing. It’s a beautiful piece and I’m still thinking about where to place it to really show off it’s beauty.

Gothic Favourites 80s Edwardan Dress White GypsyGothVintage
One of my favourite Instagram accounts is Gypsy Goth Vintage and she also has an etsy shop where she sells beautiful pieces from the 20th century. I have been eyeing a pair of trousers for months, maybe years – it’s a 80s piece in turquoise. Well, still thinking about getting it. BUT I did get this lovely 80s piece, it’s an Edwardian inspired piece and exactly the kind of dress I love at the moment. With all the different organza and lace it’s a gorgeous pice and I got it at a fantastic price. It gives me quite a nice “antique” silhouette and I think it would look great wearing it in a forest (hauning surrounding villages, probably).

Gothic Favourites Lipstick Kiko essence metal green sangria
Recently I discovered green lipsticks – surprisingly they lok quite natural on me, the essence one (Metal Shock in 07 Venom) looks a bit like I imagine Medusa and the Kiko one (Metal Lipstick in 12 Forest Green) which is a bit darker like a mermaid. As someone that does not look that good in green clothing it is really interesting to see that green lipstick looks good on me (additionally they have fancy names). But, I also really enjoy the dark red/fuchsia tone (Gossamer Emotion Creamy Lipstick in 111 Sangria) – I know dark tones are more popular in winter, but I do love them at the moment (then again they fit in quite well with the gothic/edwardian/victorian vibes I love right now). The design of tha last one is really innovative, but also kind of chunky and I do not know if I like that. As for durance, all of them stay on all day with minor touch ups.

What do you enjoy at the moment? what are your favourite thinkgs right now?

I’m sorry for being a little inactive at the moment, but I do not feel all that inspired. Especially writing wise, it’s probably one of the reasons I did not post this outifit earlier, it’s about a month old, after all. But to be honest my writing motivation just isn’t that high. I don’t really know what to write and feel like it’s a bit like writer’s block while writing a story. Hmmm.

What I can say is that I really love this brooch, because it’s a beautiful bee (which I love) and it’s from a dear friend. It’s a bit heavy though, so while it would actually match dainty dresses and scarfes, it would rip delicate fabrics. But writing this, I think it would look great holding a dark scarf around the shoulders on colder days.
However, I’m really happy I’m travelling next week, maybe that’ll get me inspired. After all, I am feeling a bit bored at home at the moment, so getting out will help for sure.

Finally, finally! I managed to shoot this outfit and post the photos. I planned this for the last few months, but wanted to wait for my Falcon tattoo. But the day has come and yesterday my friend Thyra and I went to take a couple of photos. This summer is very lovely so far – some days are a bit to hot/humid for my taste, but in general it’s a feeling of comfortable warmth. I can still rock my saddle shoes and petticoat, but a 60s babydoll is fine as well, so I’m quite happy.

To be honest I’m also quite happy with this Millennium Falcon dream outfit. After all everything ties together in a neat Star Wars theme – the shoes were a gift from my mum and I love them to pieces. It was the first time wearing them and the rub my feet a bit on the sides, but I think a pair of socks might help. I mean, what’s cuter than R2D2 heels? I get so many comments from people in real life telling me they really like them, and of course the shoes themselves are too beautiful. I feel like I should really wear all my fancy IC heels more often, because they fill me with joy.

The Millennium Falcon is one of my favourite space ships, I just love the flat design (I know it’s inspired by the one in the Valerian comics, but oh well). So of course this print is one of my favourites, I think it’s adorable especially with the black background, so I was beyond happy to find the matching earrings and of course my little tattoo addition makes me very happy too (even though it’s obviously still healing). My Leia brooch is another favourite not only becausse of the unique design, but also because there is a little quote on the backside.

Then again, Star Wars always makes me happy, because it has this easy going, fun vibe and the music alone gives me this warm fuzzy feeling. Thinking of – I still have to listen to the You Must Remember This Podcast about Star Wars (though it’s more of a play on words and about Old Hollywood) and I have to continue Ian Doescher’s Shakespeare’s Star Wars plays, because they are fantastic. The good – and bad thing (because ther is just so much) – about big fandoms like Star Wars is that is so much creativity and stuff surrounding it – from official/licensed merchandise to craziy creative from independent artists (like the brooch). Though it is always inspiring to see all the creative minds taking their spin on this big universe. There is also more than one inspiring woman – not only onscreen, but also people like Ashley Eckstein from Her Universe. So with this outfit I felt quite happy and inspired and I hope you get some of that though the screen.

Recently I have been watching American Horror Story and I’m currently on season four, Freak Show (the quote above is a Freak Show quote). Which seems quite fitting considering I just went to a fair with my dear friend Thyra. I only went to the Circus once or twice as far as I rememeber and I would not go nowadays for the bad treatment of animals, but in a way I like the idea and I like it as a trope in movie and tv shows. I think especially the Twenties with their affinity for ghosts and seances match this idea so well. I would love to have a crystal ball or a way to communicate with spirits.

I’m quite interested in witchcraft and magic as well, I think it’s so fascinating how it has allways been part of human life through myths and healers. No matter if fortune telling, horoscopes and magic spells are pure fiction or not – the sole idea excisting throughout the decades astonishes me. I really hope the photos convey a fortune teller/psychic medium vibe.
