Mrs. Robinson

Mrs. Robinson

Botgirl called me Mrs. Robinson earlier today and that sort of inspired this post, even though I am completely innocent and have even sworn off men for the rest of my life (or until I meet a really hot guy). But yeah, I did have fun dressing Manberry up like a schoolboy and photoshopping a smirk on his face.

My friend Akami recently did a picture on flickr and it was so awesome that it also inspired me to do my own version of that. But his is way better so make sure to click over and check it out on his stream.

I feel like this month the grid has gone Gacha crazy! Not only is the Arcade still going on, but both The Mens Dept and The Liaison Collaborative have gachas in their events this month. I think this is a great time for that because gachas are wonderful stocking stuffers, cheap and transferrable! If you haven’t been to either event as of yet, check out the offerings on the following pages:

I’m not usually a home and garden blogger but I have started to incorporate more homes and furniture in my posts. I’m always self-conscious about it though as I don’t feel like I am very good at decorating, but it has been fun trying. Plus all these wonderful mesh pieces designers are making recently are just works of art.

I can’t get over how beautiful the wood pallet tree with tea lights is from Botanical. Botanical has released a series of 6 alternative christmas trees this month and I think they are just so cute and quirky. They definitely add an artistic touch to the decor, or at least I think so. At least it distracts you from my ass a little bit!

And of course we have to end with this: http://youtu.be/9C1BCAgu2I8

The Book Meme

(click here to see raw shot, I actually prefer it) Usually when I’m feeling down, the first thing I tend to grab is some chocolate and a favorite book that I’ll sit and read to distract myself and get my mind off things.
