Sir Reginald Bunnikins Finds Bergamot Bunny

Once upon a time, Sir Reginald Bunnikins was a very lonely bunny. Sir Reginald, or Turnip as he was known to his very close friends, had a very good job as the owner of the world’s largest tea factory. He had a sprawling manor house in the country side to spend his weekends at and a delightful city flat just near his club to enjoy during the week. Sir Reginald had all the tea he could possibly drink and some very lovely bunny friends but something always seemed to be missing.

You see, Sir Reginald had been blessed with a very good name and character but as his nickname suggested, he wasn’t so full in the brains department. In fact he had received his nickname as an homage to his best friend Violet’s most treasured romantic hero: Turnip Fitzhugh. Also his head kind of looked like a turnip.

But that was just the problem wasn’t it? Sir Reginald wasn’t much in the way of a romantic hero, he had no Arabella to rescue or eat pudding with! As a proper Victorian gentleman with no formal introductions it was rather hard for him to meet an appropriately chaperoned young bunny lady in this day and age.

The whole issue made Sir Reginald’s brain box hurt.

 

Lazy Inspiration

You know what the problem with writing a post about Lazy Inspiration? You get too busy and lazy to actually write it… >_>

Lately I’ve been talking about Lazy Inspiration a lot. I mentioned it as the theme for The VLB and it’s been something I’ve been thinking about for a while.

I can be very unmotivated sometimes and once you’re in an unmotivated frame of mind it’s hard to climb out of it because everything seems to hard. You have a couple of set backs which are outside of your control and it completely ruins your momentum. You’re too busy to do anything but even though you’re so busy… nothing really gets done. It’s a bad habit! All of your goals seem so far away from actually being completed.

So I feel like this…

How To Find Cute Things In Dollar Stores

I love junk stores. I do some of my best shopping in junk stores but a lot of people ask about how I manage to find nice things amongst all of the… well junk XD I personally find that it’s all about digging, you have to sort through about 100 crap things before you find 1 good one. So with thinking about that I went to the junk shop at Harbour Town (which is currently my favorite) the other day to see what I could spot.

There were less nice things than I usually find but I still managed to hunt out a decent amount of things that I would have bought if I’d had the money.

Frist find of the day, I spotted these cute rose towels with lace edging on the way over.

Sneaker Sunday- Week 2

So you might have read all about Sneaker Sunday last week, if not go and have a look here to see what all the fuss is about!!

A lot of you wanted some tips and ideas for what to wear sneakers with… so for week two we wanted to give you some co-ordination ideas :D

*edit* Disclaimer- Just wanted to point out that a lot of these shoes are from YesStyle who currently have an advertisement on the sidebar of my blog via Nuffnang, I wrote this post long before I knew I was getting ads from YesStyle so please don’t think this is a sponsored post because it’s not! I just happen to love a whole lot of stuff from there because it’s cute!*/edit*

Sneaker Sunday Co-ordination ideas!

Today I want to focus on wearing cute, comfortable shoes to more dressy events or just dressed up enough for a day out on the town! Sneakers are great but they aren’t appropriate for some events.

Photos used are credited below and are not mine. I will be happy to remove if asked by the owner.

Shoe 1: Lady Bug Flats

These are completely adorable. Because they are shiny they can either be a nice statement piece or as part of a bright outfit like the one I put together below. I would wear this to a nice night out.

Part 3 of Setting Up Your Blogging Space- Putting it all together…

I have a couple of little announcements before the main post on setting up your blogging space!

Firstly I’ve done an interview with the lovely Hollie from Mermaid’s Closet click here if you’d like to have a look :)

Secondly, I’ve been planning on doing an FAQ about Hime Gyaru styles for a while now and I’ve actually gotten around to starting to write it ^_^ So if there are any questions you have about my style or Hime Gyaru in general I’d love to hear them. You can put them in the comments or go to my contact page if you’d like to do it more privately :)

Lastly I’m going away for a few days to the beach for New Years (I hope my new swim suit arrives today or else that’s going to suck!)… anyway that means I’ll probably be missing Art Friday this week but I’m taking a sketch book so I might post something on Sat. I’ve just gotten WordPress on my phone so I might test it out and try to post some snap shots :D

But back to the important bits…
