A Spring Fairy

Spring has arrived here in sunny Australia, and it feels as if it were never cold at all, let alone less than a week ago. I have spent today dressed in a black lacy mini skirt and black singlet, only putting on a casual black and silver striped hoodie when the sun went down. When we set out for coffee and burgers for a late lunch I slipped on a T shirt and pinstriped shirt for modesty.

 The sun is out, flowers are beginning to bloom again and everything has a 'touch of spring'.
Now, I am a Goth who loves her cliches; I don't like the sun and prefer to maintain a ghostly pallor, I love winter and don't handle the heat of summer. I love the concept of snow (something that is rare unless you live in the mountains here).
However, I do like spring weather, because it means that I am not required to wear thick tights and a jumper every time I leave the house. I like the touch of warmth while still being able to wear tights or long sleeves if I choose, as I am not veyr confidant show mass amounts of skin. I feel as if I have more freedom when choosing clothes, as the weather is not quite into the extremes of summer and winter yet.

Not to mention that the weather and abundance of floral in the natural world has certainly but a spring in my step (pun not intended). While I still am my mopey, misanthropic self (something that I hope doesn't come across too obviously on my blog), with moments of sadness and depression like any other human, I've been looking at my life, university work and relationships with more positivety. I tend to be a very negative, cynical person, but I have been making progress to become overall a more positive person.


Oh, and yesterday I ventured to the Illamasqua counter and Kryolan Cosmetics in the city. I've purchased cosmetics from these brands in the past and have been so very pleased with the quality.
I purchased dark green lip gloss from Illamasqua for general lovely club makeup, and White Aquacolour from Kryolan (to be worn with the white Dusting Powder I got a week ago) for my Conservatorium's annual ball to be held next week, with a Film Noir theme this year. Do expect a post regarding that in the near future. I'm intending to recreate a 'black and white' film look, with a splash of colour. XD

  1. I know what you mean. With my penchant for long sleeves and layers and stockings and all things Victorian, Australian summers are not kind to me!

    I love the idea of a black and white film look. I want to do a complete film noir outfit sometime complete with a white wig and black and white makeup.

  2. I love spring! Everything you said I agree with. Winter for me is way too cold but summer is too hot. :3

  3. Also thanks for following me, I am moving most of my stuff to my other blog, http://rosesandvellum.blogspot.com.au/ and I would love if you would follow me there! :)

  4. Hi, I tagged you for the Liebster award. Visit my post: http://rosesandvellum.blogspot.com.au/2012/09/liebster-award.html if you want to know what to do :)

  5. Sary, Yes winter does get cold!!! I don't like being wet from rain, but I like the cold generally. I guess I don't like *being* cold but I prefer colder weather. Summer is far too hot. I half-jokingly say I'll live in Tasmania during the summer and Melboure the rest of the year XD I wish... xxx

    Laura, done! x
