Rawr.

This is the second appearance of the American Apparel Multi-Layered
Reversible Petticoat (yes, I know the official name because I'm that
good at remembering useless information, and less good at remembering
useFUL information like, for example, homework.) on this blog, but
this appearance is unique because I OWN IT THIS TIME. OH YEAH.
My amazingly awesome friend Naomi C. Elegant banded together with my
boyfriend, DK, to buy me this (incredibly, mind-blowingly expensive)
incredibly, mind-blowingly swirly, puffy, twirly, springy, flouncy
petticoat.
These pictures really don't do it justice. One day (if anybody's
actually interested) I will do a video illustrating it's flounciness.
I need to expand my vocabulary.
To pay my good friend, Naomi, back, I bought her pretzels. And a curry puff.
Anyway!
To explain my odd poses, I was just following Naomi's artistic
direction. With a Ted from How I Met Your Mother thrown in.

-H&M Leopard crop top
-American Apparel Multi-La...this was mentioned earlier. Don't tell me
you've forgotten already.

I bid you farewell,

Hannah

The FBomb

101st post!
The photo of a giant button (don't you just love giant buttons?) has nothing to do with this post, I just really didn't want to do a pictureless post. I now have a strange desire for a headpiece made out of giant multicoloured buttons though.
The FBomb I refer to in the title is not *that word that parents and teachers absolutely detest*, it's in fact The F Bomb, which is an amazing feminist blog that you should start reading RIGHT NOW. Which I just wrote an article for. I mean, I emailed it in and, miraculously, it was accepted!
Anyways, here it is. The article, I mean.

The F Bomb- Struggling with Body Image

If you read it, it would be nice to know what you think, so...comment?

In a while, crocodile!

Hannah

P.S Find the link for the FBomb in our blogroll. Hopefully. I will attempt to put it in our blogroll straight after this post. Notice I say attempt.
P.P.S I just watched How I Met Your Mother. That explains the "in a while, crocodile!".

The 100th Post

Decided to open with an image that will sear itself into your eyes forevermore. Another one to add to my Catalogue of Weird Facial Expressions.
It isn't a full outfit post because, I was in my room and my camera was low on battery so I was trying to make it short and sweet.
So, details?
~assorted necklaces from my inherited jewellery box
~puffy cat brooch
~grey wool cardigan
~white feathery fascinator

No, I can't tell you where I bought any of these things. Well. I didn't exactly buy any of these things.But that's beside the point!
The point is, this is the 100th post. Sorry for the long absence. I admit, it's been a a while.
I'm not going to make excuses, although I doubt anyone really noticed Naomi and I's long non-posting streak.
I have to get the hang of blogging again :)

So, I leave you with a mildly frightening image and a dull few paragraphs.

Adieu,

Hannah

celebrity skinnnn


hello. as this is my first post in absolute yearss (me being naomi) ... ok, i dont remember how i was going to finish that sentence.

so enjoy some disgustingly smiley webcam pics, from yours truly.

*evil laughter fills the giant room where Google lives*

Okay, I have to apologise (SHUT UP BLOGGER, THERE IS NO 'Z' IN APOLOGISE) to Naomi in advance. I almost posted the big One Zero Zero...th post. Luckily, I realised this and, um, deleted an old post. *wipes tear from eye*
No one reads those things anyway, which I find strange because I tend to go straight for the introductory post whenever I find a new blog. It's interesting to see a blogger's progress, right? No? Just me? Okay then.
So, the 100th post WILL be a joint post (as soon as Naomi gets back from sunning herself in Malaysia..or emails me. If you're reading this, email me, Gnomes!) and it will have...photos. I couldn't think of a suitable adjective there. Wow, at 4:24am, my brain turns to a soft, jelly like substance that can only handle looking at pretty pictures before it starts to liquefy. I'm going to try and sleep now.. I'll have more luck finishing this tomorrow. I mean, today.

But just a teaser photo of posts to come!


Naomi and I in the *cough* American Apparel (also known as the Land of Overpriced but Beautiful) changing rooms. I'm wearing a petticoat that will forever haunt my dreams, and a crop top. Gnomes - on the right- is wearing an Old Navy (is that what it's called? It's an American store.. it's definitely SOMETHING Navy.. God, I'm a terrible blogger) grey tank top and floral leggings, which are, in a word, delightful.
I just said delightful. I need sleep.

Good...morning,

 Hannah

P.S 99TH POST EVERYONE.

P.P.S Does anyone watch QI? Alan Davis is hilarious. I fear I'm alone in my love for British television.

the long awaited post with the creepy eyes


































































 As I walked down the stairs this morning (after spending way too long
trying to make my eyes look sufficiently creepy) I scared my mother
half to death when I blinked. Slowly.
I've only been awake an hour so...apart from being sleepy in the
photos, I haven't left the house yet. I'm just sitting in the living
room uploading these pictures to the blog while my brother plays XBox.
~not exactly sure where to capitalise... it's kinda like the iPod,
that one kept me up many nights wondering if it was the I or the P..~
What a wild, unpredictable life I have..
Anyway!
~dress, present from Grandma
~black Skechers boots
~black Primark bow belt
~flowery Primark hair bow
And when I say my dress was a present from my grandmother, I mean I
raided her wardrobe and saw this, was vaguely reminded of a Proenza
Schouler collection, and asked innocently if she would like to give it
to me.
Note: Ignore my manical, Joker-like smile. It's early. At least for me.
So, later I'll be back, updating this post. I also have a feeling this
is the 99th post.
WOO.
Yep. Um. Comments? Anyone?
*crickets chirp*
Ok ok, I'll stop non-desperately asking.
And before I forget, Maggie from the awesome blog Lifesize Paperdoll has a giveaway! Go enter!

Zaijian,
Hannah
P.S I don't usually wear makeup unless I'm having a sleepover with
friends or something so..be kind.
P.P.S UPDATED. with photos to prove that I left the house ^^

I am officially an old woman in everyone's eyes

I still have no camera.
These artistically astounding *cough* photos were taken with...my webcam.
This is a pretty lazy outfit, I wear it whenever I want to look
presentable after half a day in bed.
Basically, it's a short lace top from New Look and a Laura Ashley
black skirt (maxi skirt? is that what they're calling them now?).
Of course, everyone I know seems to associate long skirts with old women.
Or maybe that's just my particular circle of..peers.
Well, it's been a while since either of us (Gnomes, and I) have
posted, so we're both really sorry! *nudges naomi*
Nobody has commented *sob* but update on that post where I promised to
wear that slightly creepy eye makeup outside, in public. Only two
people commented, but because I like pleasing people, I'll still wear
it. And also I've just always wanted to because it will be awesome to
see the reactions of everybody. I anticipate staring and concerned
looks.

Anyway,
I have to go..

Zaijian~

P.S Those comments are called mirages for a reason.
