Isle of Wight Trip : Part Two

I wish I could say I am late posting because I won the lottery and I am enjoying a private Corey Taylor gig whilst drunk on Veuve Cliquot bellinis, but the reality is that my day job is currently kidnapping my soul even after 5:30pm. Satan, you suck, I never signed up for overtime when I signed my corporate deal!!

With no further adieu, I shall present part 2 of the Isle of Wight trip, which happened on the weekend of 13th april, this time focussing on the Compton Bay beach, a beautiful stretch of sand about 30 mins away from Newport.

My breath was literally taken away by the powerful marine breeze – and the stunning view. For once, my nose wasn’t carrying out its “self-service nose job procedure”, eg uber tight squinting of the nostrils to prevent the morning stench coming in. If you are a London commuter : ya know what I mean.

For an introvert stuck against her will in an office all week long (but in favour of her wallet’s will), THIS was just pure HEAVEN! [up yours corporate Satan 🙃]

I really loved the fact that the beach was so vast and yet friendly and welcoming : everyone could have their spot without being in someone’s way, which I hate with normal beaches. There were surfers, families with kids, solo peeps like me [though without the tripod and booty cape 😂]

And, of course, I had to strike a pose.

Have you ever seen a Goth on the beach?

Have you ever seen a booty cape?

Now you do !


As I packed very last minute, I took some really random bits of clothing with me … They seem to have done the trick for my Goth With The Wind on The Beachscene, non? 😀


The booty cape is one of my favourite item of dressing up, though I rarely use it. It is a steampunk wrap skirt I got on amazon – technically you are supposed to wear it over a fluffly steampunk skirt… But I am not technical and I don’t like to follow rules, so I just wrap it around my arse when I feel like it !!


The shoes are Demonia, I paid £22 on Amazon .A tip for you alt fashion fiends : peruse Amazon for crazy prices on last items in stock. Also remove the women/men shoe filter because sometimes it is skewed : these ankle boots were in the man section (size 36 lol). Proof:

That is me done for the Isle of Wight … I have really enjoyed being away from London for a bit – however being away from it does remind you of both why you love and hate it.  I do love the convenience and endless choices the city gives me, but man, I absolutely hate the lack of space and mad pace that is rampant in London.

So folks, are you a city or outskirt earthling??

PS: Something tells me I will be covering Whitby Goth Weekend 2018 Edition…Stay tuned !! 😉

I’ll be back !
