Baaaack

Hey Ghoulies!

As always, I´ve been a terrible blogger. Life has been hectic since I´ve returned from Austrian lands! I had a lot of friends to catch up with (some I haven't even seen yet!), lots of festivals and vacations to attend, and most importantly, 5 months of love to catch up with!

I really wanna get organized in life right now, and get back to blogging, since I have loads of stuff to share with you, my mothly creatures. Lots of inspirational posts, aesthetics, daily posts and FILM, since lately I just can't stop watching movies!


 I´ll just leave you with a pic of my Birthday cake, baked by my sweetheart, with help from me and Neuza! Don't let looks fool you, it was actually quite delicious! You can also get a sneak peak of the party table, and food being snatched from it! I was setting the table and had some early guests there already, and the naughty bastards kept eating the food while I was putting it on the table! By the time the last persons arrived (about 10 pm) there was barely anything left! eheh

See you soon, darling creatures!

Tales from a bat and her lover, far far away from her cavern! (part one)

Hello my dear creatures of zee nighttttt!

It looks like this Ghoulette has troubles posting when living away from home... I've talked about this a million times before, but life's just too busy... There's always someone to see or something to do. A swim in the Danube if it's hot, a drink and a chat with a friend after work, a walk around the center, an icecream at zanoni in schwedenplatz... Right now, I´m in Prague! I´m mega lucky, because Austria borders with 8 different countries, so there's plenty of opportunities to travel. I've already been in Bratislava (Slovakia) and Munich (Germany), and after Prague (Czech Republic) i´m going to Budapest (Hungary). I´m a very lucky ghoul indeed! Which reminds me, that I really do have to share the pictures of those happy times with you guys! Soonnnnnnn, i´ll try!

Anyway, apart from travelling, in the beginning of the month I got the most awaited visit of all my stay in Wien. My other half came to visit and stayed for a month, and boy was it magical! Starting from moment one, I wanted to surprise him in the airport, so I fooled him and told him I could not go and pick him up, since I had a meeting with my landlord. It was so hard not to break and tell him the truth, because I knew he felt all confused and scared he wasn't going to find his way through Vienna to my house from the airport, but I hold firm. I took Aileen along to film his reaction when we met in the airport, after being away from each other for 4 months. I´m not sharing the vid because I feel it's too personal, but here's a couple of our first pics after he arrived:



How can I describe this month? Magical? Blissful? Heaven on earth? Being in the arms of your loved one after 4 months away is intense, I can tell you that much. We had our cranky moments, mostly because I love to tease him (in a playful mood, but sometimes he takes it rather badly!) and we can both be a little grumpy sometimes. But mostly, the month consisted of cuddling a lot, eating and drinking, walking around Vienna, cuddling some more, watching game of thrones together cosy in bed... Falling asleep in his arms makes me feel the safest and the comfiest i ever felt in my life... The way we just tune with each other, our sense of humour, his kindness and support, our mutual interests, make me feel the happiest I've ever felt with a significant other. Everything about this relationship is different, better, and it just feels right. I´m a wounded little bat with some scars from my previous relationship, so sometimes I´m afraid of getting hurt, or of just messing it up.  But nobody knows the future, so all we can do is our best, and enjoy every tiny second, every moment. So lameness ahead, here's a sneak peak of our "honeymoon" in Vienna:


Mailindo, having a beer I brought him from Bratislavian lands! (although the beer is actually Czech, and apparently really tasty!)







The parliament, one of the most beautiful places of Vienna (although it's so hard to choose, in such a beautiful city) and one of our 1st dates


 The Prater






Helder's balcony, aka the best view i've ever seen in central Vienna




Swimming with baby swans in the Danube




And we saw satanic symbols in the skies! \m/ mvahahah




We ate ice cream at schwedenplatz (several times :x)




 Made a mess out of my room




We gave me flowers in a day I was feeling particularly shitty <3 (Fun fact, I had never been given a bouquet of flowers by a boyfriend before, only single roses and stuff, so it was extra special!)




 Went to the Prater some more (I think we went there like 5 times while he was here! :x) We rode the prater turn, jack the ripper and a kind of children roller-coaster that looked fun. Also, ate a shitload of Langos mit knoblaut!




Shared a romantic afternoon in Empress Sissi's summer residence, the Sch├Ânbrunn Palace




And amazingly enough, found Fernando Pessoa (a very famous and very talented Portuguese writer and poet) lost in a building in Thaliastrasse

More to come, excuse the lameness, but that's the way we are <3

See you soooooooon (Hopefully!)

Deadly outfit - Showing the sights around Vienna


I had some friends visiting last week, and it was amazing, but equally tiring. Bela Lugosi's dead, and so am I (undeaddd undeeeeaad undeeeead), therefore I leave you with this small outfit post. Just to say that I´m... well, Undeeeeaaad!

Sunglasses - Thrifted at the Naschmarkt (2 euros)
Skully dress (actually a tshirt transformed into a dress) - Street Market in Thaliastrasse (2 euros)
Ripped Leggings - Bershka (About 10 euros, if I remember it correctly!)

And a bonus picture of me eating zanoni & zanoni ice cream (and sofia in the background). Just because it's tasty and fucking cheeeap!



Take care batsies, loads of love from Viennese lands!

The Bat Chronicles - Life in Vienna

Hey batties!

I was gonna post a tour of my room here in Vienna, and even maybe of my house... But when I finished tidying up it was already dark, and the pictures were ruined by the flash... I think i'll try to take better piccies one of these days. It's a strange feeling, but whenever i´m abroad I always feel like I have a thousand things to do at the same time, and like my mind and body are spread everywhere. I think I spoke about this before, and it makes it hard to concentrate and get stuff done. Anyways, Vienna is a lovely city, and it remains embodied on it's ancient magnificent glory. In every street corner you can find a surprise, a palace with astonishing architecture  statues, impressive houses and churches, quanty traditional coffee houses decorated in the jugenstill Viennese style, carriages pulled by elegant horses... I still don't know how living here feels. I think it is a beautiful city, but somehow, i cannot process this situation. It's like i´m not on vacation here, nor i am living here... Maybe I am lost in a dream? I´m happy though, I have made good friends, and I´m trying to enjoy the city to it's fullest, as I always do when living abroad.

Tomorrow I have a portuguese friend coming to visit and staying for about a week, so that should be exciting  Meanwhile, have a wander around this fairytale city with me, with some snaps that I have taken thus far. I think you too will want to visit pretty soon!





One of Vienna's typical markets, which are seasonal and happen often all around the city (This one is a easter market, as you can easily tell by the easter egg portrayed, lol)


Creepy stephandom, with zee moon



Snowy footsteps after a night out




A walk in the augarten and a look at the WWII air control towers, which are pretty much indestructible and remain standing in Vienna to this day as a memoir (There are 4 or 5 of them around the city)




The Theatre Museum






A walk to the Vienna museum with friends, and silly pics


Vienna's Zentralfriedhof, or the main cemetery which is purely idyllic and shall have it's own post soon








The parliament, which is one of the most beautiful buildings in Vienna (and trust me, there are plenty of them!) with an amazing amount of statues and beautiful architecture. I love that ducks live in that fountain!









The Central library, chilling out in the sun while reading the walking dead comic, Mozart and Goethe





Beautiful things in the center



More walking dead and a burger king meal, an extravaganza that I very rarely indulge in here in Vienna (Cause i´m really poor)



Opera in the street and some days later actual opera (Eugene Onegin in russian with english subtitles)


This is where I work (well, the garden of my workplace). Feel free to be very jealous :P 






Donausinsel, or the island of the Danube, where you can bathe in the river and go for endless walks (we sunbathed in our bikinis, but didn't dare to get into the water because it was freezing, but many Viennese were doing just so!)



A night out to a fail gothrock party at marea alta





Riding a segway and taking pictures along the danube channel



Stadepark


The Prater


A very cool building, near my house!


Zhat is all for today batties, this post is huge and was a lot of work! Hope you enjoy it and come to visit sometime <3 To all of my friends that read the blog, there's extra mattresses in the house, if you feel tempted to come!


See ya soooooooooooooooon!
