The Corner Shop

     Located In the Heart of Marietta (metro Atlanta) is a little shop close to my heart, The Corner Shop. Around a Few years ago, I spotted little Union Jack flags outside the store, and I wanted to enter. Upon entry, I was greeted by a sweet lady named Tina, and I began to browse through British goods that were once unavailable in my area. Even though sometimes I do not purchase anything, Tina always offers a warm hug and a friendly chat. I have been visiting the store ever since.

   I recall one of my first visits to the store when monsoon-like weather roared through the square. Completely unprepared, my brother and I rushed into The Corner Shop to seek shelter. We were greeted by Tina, who offered us tea and Jammy Dodgers. That day was one of the more memorable days I have had. Because of that experience, I will always carry a fondness for Jammy Dodgers and afternoon tea while rain pours in the background. This just goes to show that The Corner shop offers a little something for everyone.
    The corner shop stocks a variety of goods. There are many types of candies including Yorkie Bars, sugar Mice, Wine Gums, and countless others. More traditional English food, which I have yet to try much, includes blood sausage, haddock, black pudding, and Sheppard's Pie. The store is not only stocked with British food, but also with tea, kettles, Will and Kate merchandise,Celtic jewelry, and many other interesting items. Everything is priced reasonably, which is perfect for curious customers without much cash. 
     If you live in the greater Atlanta area, I highly recommend visiting The Corner Shop. It is located in my favorite town in suburbia, Historic Marietta Square. You won't regret it.  Here is the website:


  1. I love this post! Thanks Katie! I love you coming to visit me at the shop and glad it means so much to you too! Tina <3

  2. I love this place! The owners are so sweet! Whenever I am at the square I love to stop by.

DIY Nose Chain

For those of you who've been trying to hunt down a nose chain, you probably know that they're difficult to find. Even online, there isn't a big selection. The ones I've found at a local Indian mall were pretty, but they weren't exactly what I was looking for. I finally decided it would be easier to make my own. 

What you need: Any kind of necklace chain (preferably lightweight)Nose ring (you can also make a lip chain if you have a lip ring.)Earring HookMetal loops (You might be able to find a couple on your necklace)Jewelry pliers (I used regular pliers, but it's a lot more difficult.)How To Make It: Measure out the length you want your nose chain. Using the  pliers, separate the chain to your desired length.Take the piece you need, and attach both ends to  the bigger metal loops.Attach one end to your earring hook and the other end to your nose ring. Make sure the ends are tightened enough where the nose chain won't come apa…

I'm Getting Married in a Month...and Musings about "Growing Up" with This Blog

Finally people have stopped asking me, "What are your colors?" But now they're saying, "It's getting close! Are you ready?"

I woke up a week and a half ago with tension in my temples and feeling like I couldn't get my heart rate down. I realized that it was probably wedding-planning stress. I've tried with all my might not to stress about the wedding, so much so that it's finally caught up with me, I suppose.

But, I made sure to de-stress over the weekend last week and get done what I could with my week nights and this past weekend. What will be will be.

I might be a married woman the next time I post here! That's an interesting thought considering I started this blog in high school. It's been less than a decade, but life has crammed so many changes into that short amount of time.

When I began this blog, I was an inexperienced teenager, enthusiastic about the Goth subculture, searching for kinship with others who shared my interests. It …

My First Time at a Goth Club

When I walked into the building for Ascension, a Goth/Industrial night, they started playing "This Corrosion." I was introduced to Goth six years ago when I listened to the song, so it was like the night saying "Merry Gothmas, Katie!" I'd been planning on going all week, but when Friday rolled around, I was so exhausted from spending the entire day getting a new car (my last one was totaled) and then visiting family with a long drive back. I came home and wanted to just take a nap, and after taking too long to decide, I got dressed and headed out the door. This past Ascension was the last one held at the Masquerade, a much-loved local venue, and I wanted to experience it before I left for West Virginia.

I'd known about Ascension for a while. One reason why I hadn't gone before this past Friday is because of being a student and having lived an hour away. It's a lame excuse. Aside from that, I told myself for years that I wasn't a cluby-type (alth…
