DIY | Creating a Goth Planner Cover

This is the second year that I’ve started religiously using a planner. Last year I had a generic polka-dot planner because I wasn’t sure if I would actually use it. I ended up writing in it every day! This year I couldn’t find anything that suited my personality and had the layout I liked. So, instead, I decorated my own and made a dark Victorian themed Goth planner! It was…

Spotlight | Plan 9 from Outer Space

Plan 9 from Outer Space, formerly known as Grave Robbers from Outer Space, is a 1959 Sci-fi film considered the worst movie ever directed. It was directed by Ed Wood, a directed famous for his eagerness to direct, but failure to make anything seemingly proffessional, later immortalised by Tim Burton in the film Ed Wood.

Last night Sarah and I headed up to a local bar for their monthly drag night. Before nightfall we just managed to take these pictures (that’s why they’re a bit grainy!).
