It is quite a fascinating and equally
exciting fact that the world of fashion offers designers and consumers alike
enough room to express their creativity, regardless of how eccentric, weird or
“out of this world” the designs and styles may be. And when it comes to clothes
and accessories, particularly in the bags and purses category, there are
various different designs that come in style depending on the season as others
have become timeless even after all these years.
And among these “weird” and alternative
styles and designs, there are some that are really considered by many as
obscured and not for everybody’s consumption and a perfect example of which are
the goth handbags and purses. If you have no idea what and how these
alternative handbags and purses look like, then let us try to dig deeper into
the darkest realms of this brand of fashion that is slowly making followers out
of women as the years go by.
Perhaps the first thing that you will
notice about these goth handbag and purses and the primary characteristic that
most, if not all of them embody proudly is the use of the black color. The bags
and purses vary as far as the use of black is concerned. Some of them use solid
black on all surfaces while some use black and mix it with shades of grey,
brown and red for that really brooding appeal. If you are in for black handbags
but with a different touch and appeal, one that is of the more eerie and
eccentric, then goth black handbags
and ladies purses are viable options for you to seriously consider.
styles with dark representations
Another obvious aspect that makes goth
and alternative handbags and purses different from the rest aside from the
generous usage of the color black are the styles, accents and representations
they offer. Some of the styles that are available range from chains as straps,
different shapes of the bags that resemble bats and other things that can be
associated to the dark side and other eccentric touches and designs that can
even be considered viable during Halloween parties.
Elements that will surely catch
everybody’s attention are the skulls, the fangs, the bloody designs, different
kinds of spooky creatures in the night, and if you are really a hardcore goth advocate,
you can even go to extremes like a coffin purse which is something that you
never really see every day. These dark-oriented ideas that are masterfully and
artistically crafted in the bags and purses. But generally, the designs and
styles of these black handbags and black ladies purses really stand out above
the rest and will make you stand out as well.
the grain, making a statement
Let us face it, wearing goth outfit and
sporting goth inspired alternative handbags and purses are not really for
everybody. But, we cannot take away the fact that fashion should always be
about expressing yourself and sometimes making a statement, regardless how bold
or how against the grain it may be. So if you are planning or even considering
to give yourself a fashion overhaul or
just a slight tweak or makeover when it comes to your fashion accessories, then
why not give the goth black handbags and ladies purses a chance?
There are many different goth and
alterative handbags and purses available out there, especially online and the
same rules apply when it comes to your purchases. Be sure to check your
possible sources if the products they are selling are of commendable quality
and do your research with regards to the feedback that they are getting from

When it comes to the festive period of Christmas there are two things on most people’s minds: giving gifts and attending parties.
If you are the one that is organising the party then there are plenty of things to start thinking about. For a start, in such hard economic times, keeping within budget has never been more important. Here are some things to take into account to make this party one that will be remembered for ever.
Party planners have been around for decades. Essentially, you give them a rough idea of what will be needed for the party and they will do all the hard work. They are the ones that spend the time organising the party, but this is not necessarily a good thing. Time means money and when people are trying to save money this is not ideal. Instead take the role of the party planner and save some cash. The planning process is not necessarily as difficult as most people imagine as long as a structured plan is in place.
Creating a plan for a Christmas party is possibly the most important part to consider before getting started. Although there are major things such as the venue, time of arrival and similar items that people need not to forget and there are lots of little things to consider. For example, will the catering facilities be adequate and will the entertainment roll on throughout the party or will acts change with a smooth transition? Referring to the plan throughout each stage of the party planning process will help to ensure that as an organiser, you do not miss anything out!
Sometimes the most difficult part of a party is having a host on the day; usually it ends up being the planner. This is not the ideal scenario but this is part of being the organiser! These are the “go to” people if there is a problem but also if there are any suggestions on the big day of the Christmas party. A good idea would be to spread the weight of the responsibility by getting a couple of others that are prepared to help out on the day of the party. This will help to ensure there are enough hands to combat any problem should one actually occur on the day.
Of course the budget is something that needs careful consideration before starting the plans for a party. This is something that might need to be adapted slightly throughout the planning process. It is important to leave enough of a budget to ensure that the party is adequate in every single way. That being said, a lot of parties have a budget that is fairly extravagant, which would obviously mean that they are wasting lots and lots of cash. Carefully consider each item or service that will need paying for and then develop a budget based on this. Obviously add all of these items and services to the main plan for the party to ensure that the budget is realistic in comparison to what really needs to be spent.
There are plenty of ways to reduce costs of a Christmas party and one of them is to ensure that people bring gifts to give each other. This is a lot better than having to buy gifts for each person individually as it will obviously save huge amounts of cash. This is something that can be outlined in the Christmas party invitation fairly easily. Simply recommend that guests bring at least one gift of a certain value to give to someone else explaining that they will receive one in return. This will also create some excitement surrounding the party. Of course, this is excitement that will give a long lasting impression and will ensure that people remember this party for years to come.
Christmas is a spectacular time of the year and much of the focus will be on gift giving. For those that are looking to organise a party, organising gift giving based on secret Santa gifts is the cheapest and easiest way to get the job done. It will save huge amounts of cash which can be spent improving other parts of the party organisation.
I'm not very well today so there will be no hair of the day post. Hopefully I will be feeling better tomorrow.
Anyway I decided today to share some photographs from yesterday when I was helping to dig some vegetable plots in my Grandma's garden.
On Monday we're planning on putting in some Broad Beans, Garlic and Basil. When pumpkins start appearing in the shops I am going to save some pumpkin seeds so that next year we can try to grow pumpkins!
Sorry if I'm a little quiet today, I was out al day yesterday working before, during and after last night's XP8 gig (which was kick ass by the way), I woke up about an hour ago and tonight is Charnel House and tomorrow I'm going to be at Leeds Steampunk Market.
The up side is there will be lots of pretty pictures :D
