It was many and many a year ago,
In a kingdom by the sea,
That a maiden there lived whom you may know
By the name of Annabel Lee;
And this maiden she lived with no other thought
Than to love and be loved by me.

I was a child and she was a child,
In this kingdom by the sea;
But we loved with a love that was more than love-
I and my Annabel Lee;
With a love that the winged seraphs of heaven
Coveted her and me.

And this was the reason that, long ago,
In this kingdom by the sea,
A wind blew out of a cloud, chilling
My beautiful Annabel Lee;
So that her highborn kinsman came
And bore her away from me,
To shut her up in a sepulchre
In this kingdom by the sea.

The angels, not half so happy in heaven,
Went envying her and me-
Yes!- that was the reason (as all men know,
In this kingdom by the sea)
That the wind came out of the cloud by night,
Chilling and killing my Annabel Lee.

But our love it was stronger by far than the love
Of those who were older than we-
Of many far wiser than we-
And neither the angels in heaven above,
Nor the demons down under the sea,
Can ever dissever my soul from the soul
Of the beautiful Annabel Lee.

For the moon never beams without bringing me dreams
Of the beautiful Annabel Lee;
And the stars never rise but I feel the bright eyes
Of the beautiful Annabel Lee;
And so, all the night-tide, I lie down by the side
Of my darling- my darling- my life and my bride,
In the sepulchre there by the sea,
In her tomb by the sounding sea.

Jumper & Mitts: Asos   Jeans: Topshop   Collar: Hoodratroughdiamond (That's me, folks)   Socks: Kids socks   Fave shoes: Vintage

So people are actually being super amazing about my store so I'm doing an outfit post to shellabrate. I got these badass snakey mitts and unicorn jumper from Asos to treat myself for absolutely nothing. Jumper happens to go perfectly with the collar I made earlier in the year, Brucey bonus. Topped off a day of crafting with Jeremy Kyle by laying a dead mouse that had been mauled by Rhiannon's cat in the hedge. Cats are such assholes. Time to get over it with some slinky Stones.

I'm a Shop

Oh my glob, I've finally taken the leap and opened my own little shop: . Super happy with the way it's turned out and hope some people like the same things as me and want to snap them up, although if noone does I have no problem with keeping my creations warm on my jacket. Am I a business? Am I a adult now?

Roman Candles

“The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars.”
― Jack Kerouac, On the Road 

This Bonfire night weekend was spent standing outside a firework display, stealing fireworks and then going home to eat burgers, apple pie and playing with sparklers. Dad told me about a tradition that I'd never even heard of before called 'penny for the Guy'...

For many families, Guy Fawkes Night became a domestic celebration, and children often congregated on street corners, accompanied by their own effigy of Guy Fawkes. This was sometimes ornately dressed and sometimes a barely recognisable bundle of rags stuffed with whatever filling was suitable. A survey found that in 1981 about 23 percent of Sheffield schoolchildren made Guys, sometimes weeks before the event. Collecting money was a popular reason for their creation, the children taking their effigy from door to door, or displaying it on street corners. But mainly, they were built to go on the bonfire. Lately, however, the custom of begging for a "penny for the Guy" has almost completely disappeared. (Wiki)

Apparently it's England's real version of Trick or Treating. Depressingly we had not one single trick or treater and no old school penny for the Guy-ers. What is the world coming to?

I made this rose spike headband yesterday after drooling over one in Topshop for about a month now that I just couldn't justify paying £15 for. Stoked with how it's turned out. Also TESTING TESTING my new nail varnish, do you read me? Celebrating my sparkles and spikes by eating cheap noodles in bed with Jeremy Kyle. 10/10.

Rest in Pizza

This Halloween was spent making spooky yums. Me and Sam made our first pizzas from scratch and they were super tasty, followed by tombstone cuppycakes. Sadly the cupcakes couldn't comfort me enough to stop me weeping through Casper for the millionth time. Why is it that every time I watch it, I think it might end differently and Casper might get to use Lazarus? Emotional sorcery.
