As a 90’s child who hated the era when I was growing up, I’ve come to feel those nostalgic pangs for music and TV that I would usually dislike, The Spice Girls, Bratz dolls, plaid mini skirts, chokers ect…
I realise that although we’re living in a renaissance of pretty much every fashion and makeup trend of the last century, we may be able to replicate the look but the feeling of the era is long gone. The 90s had a tentative approach to the Millennium, a certain paranoia took place as one thinks it would considering how infrequently in Modern Human experience, internet and all, it occurs. But despite all that it was a definitive era, one where hedonistic escapism was at a peak, the mass appeal of the web and so on, we’ll not see it again but it’s definitely something we can reminisce and revisit through the best shows, the people, the toys and clothes.
Feeling nostalgic for Pac-man.

- Overdone cockney (or any) accents unless used for comedic affect.
- Unsightly idiot paired with beautiful caring lady who then makes remarks about how said woman has put on weight, she’s a shocking eight stone now!
- Men always cheating on their doting wives and it’s set up to look hilarious.
- The villainising of men, portraying them as oafs.
- Friends becoming romantically involved constantly.
- Portrayals of working class and upper class people are completely incorrect.
- People being categorised as “Geeks or sluts”.
- OCD being shown as having to wash your hands over and over again until your hands bleed.
- “Queer baiting” wherein a homoerotic pairing looks about to be set up but is instantly negated when one of the pairing develops a hetero normative attraction to the opposite sex.
- On the subject not enough realistic bisexual and gay couples.
Opinions may vary; these are just mine, all opinions are welcome.
Candy…the one thing I cannot live without, white, milk, dark, any kind of chocolate is my jam (see what I did there?) I’m partial to cotton candy too! I sometimes wonder what American chocolate is like but then I remember that Simpsons episode when they arrive in London and complain that British chocolate is too sweet for them! I’m not a fan of sour sweets, it’s kind of an oxymoron.

I’m an avid Sims 2 player (yes still), I play with a few non conflicting well known mods but even before, my Sims have had very interesting ways of screwing up their programming, the most annoying mishap that I’m sure every Sims player has experienced, the dreaded pathing issue, all my Sim had to do was get up out of his chair but the table he was eating at was apparently in the way, I MEAN WHY THE HELL DID YOU ACCEPT THE PROMPT TO SIT THERE ANYWAY!!!
I shall probably write more Sims articles but this is just a short introduction into the lunacy of my annoying Sims.

It has been said many times that style is something you have or something you do not, nothing between, it can be considered the physical manifestation of the inner self but what’s your style and are you representing your personality or is it purely aesthetic?
I myself being a semi closed book represent my personality partially but mainly appreciate it’s aesthetic appeal purely for its decorative purposes.
I consider myself to have a heart that’s half pink glitter and half gunmetal, basically a bit of a punk with a dash of everything thrown in, it’s nice to have influence but also nice to be yourself, live your life your way.

Hello dear readers, as I said in a previous post I shall be writing some posts about consensual human relationships, basically a bit of give and take agony aunt type. So I have been thinking lately after burning some proverbial bridges (definitely not the literal type…I’m not The Prodigy lol) and making way for new relationships about the type of partner I’d like and what I will put up with. I used to put up with anything and everything because I thought that would make me the chill cool girl, who the guy would eventually ask out but I’ve found that just doesn’t really work, I’m not saying you should be a two bats short of Batman’s cave but I’d advise against being a walkover, someone just to use at the guys/girls convenience, know your worth and what you will take and what you won’t, just a short post, you definitely don’t have to listen to this advice, do whatever is safe for you and works for you, we’re all different and what works for one may not for the other.

Hey dear readers, right now I’m sitting here in a bubble of music, my whole world and experience of life now confined to a pair of earphones and an amazing tune, living this experience and loving it for the 3:19 playtime and guess what I do when it’s finished and I’ve busted a move (do the kids still say that haha), I play it again obviously, I feel the rhythm in my body, the lyrics in my heart, the beat in my blood…music can definitely be therapeutic, I suggest listening or playing something upbeat when you’re feeling down, it’s like the sun shining on a field of lavender or the moon beaming through the stained windows of a gothic style building, it’s something beautiful. I like to try and listen to something new especially after there is convincing evidence that new music helps the ol’ grey matter.

Just writing a shit ton of blogs to kind of make up for the absence of said blogs for a couple of months, what can I say?! I’m a lazy cat of a person, all I do is lie around, purr and drink milk…okay the cat comparison is starting to get weird but yeah now you can see why Leos usually identify with the creatures, lovely and lazy, that’s us. Anyway back to the topic at hand or paw…omg did I really just say that? Basically I’ve had no motivation whatsoever to do anything but lounge around although today I’ve had a burst of creativity or motivation because tbh I’m still struggling with the creative side of it, which is a bit annoying since this kind of relies on a creative block, strangely I can write fiction fine but I struggle with actual blogging, maybe I should try vlogging instead?

Dear readers, hi! and welcome back. Here’s a fact, I, like most people adore music, it’s pretty much my life, everything is about music and music is about everything to me. So obviously it shouldn’t come as a surprise that I’ve been listening to a lot of it and especially today when I needed motivation to clean my room, which of course plays into the title of this article because I have a sweet confession to make, here it comes…drum roll please…I’m a Rick Astley fan, now you may think that not much of a confession but to a goth/rock chick, this is potentially life altering, of course right now I’ve got Kasabian on so my rock brownie points are high and I’m feeling all sorts of cool but yeah basically always remember that it’s okay to be different and not fully conform to any particular label, as long as you’re a good person, who cares? just practise mindfulness and everything should come to you when the time is right.

Welcome dear readers, I just thought I’d start off a new season of writing by creating something different than my usual topical rants/whimsical tangents; this new project is probably going to encompass all aspects of dating (perhaps I should make a more personal site for such things lol…dirty laundry everywhere). I shall be writing about the nitty-gritty of dating as a semi-hermit semi-goth Leo lady, so come with me and discover all the things NOT to say as I inevitably say them and watch me fuck up in the most supreme of ways…this is Leo dating, diary of a douche-magnet.
