Outfit: Skeleton Popsicle

First of all, happy New Year everyone! I am indeed still alive but only barely; one more exam to go until I am a free woman again. In between studying, writing papers and doing assignments I did manage to snap a couple of outfit pictures.

Sweater: Killstar
Skirt: Asos
Shoes: Demonia 
Choker: eBay

I got the Killstar sweater for Christmas from my parents. The sweater is surprisingly cosy and warm (but not warm enough to wear outside without a coat - hence the 'popsicle'). Here I am wearing it with a high waist skirt, but I am still looking for different ways to style it, so if you have any suggestions, be sure to let me know. And yes I rediscovered '90s tattoo necklaces, so sue me. 

Unfortunately I must return to my books now, so wish me luck for my final exam. If you notice me being absent or would just like to know what I'm up to, have a look at my Instagram or Twitter, I update those fairly regularly.

Ten Terrific Tunes

For the past weeks I have been incredibly busy writing papers so my plan to post on Mondays is still failing miserably. That also means I haven't had the time to write extensive posts or take pretty pictures, sadly. However, Sary's latest post has given me an idea; it reminded me of the fact that I rarely talk about music on this blog. That is why I am going to post ten songs that I love for you to discover and (hopefully) enjoy so you will know at least something about my musical tastes.
Without further ado, ten songs that make my ears happy, in no particular order.

IAMX - Animal Impulses

Deine Lakaien - Nevermore

Sneaker Pimps - The Chauffeur (Duran Duran cover)

The Cure - Where the Birds Always Sing

NÄO - Glad

Chelsea Wolfe - The Warden

Rasputina - Gingerbread Coffin

Abney Park - Neobedouin

Switchblade Symphony - Gutter Glitter

Yasmine Hamdan - Hal (Only Lovers Left Alive soundtrack)

Picking ten songs was hard. Goethes Erben didn't make the cut, and neither did David Bowie, which makes me sad. I suggest you give Bowie a listen anyway, to make up for me not including him.
