All Hallow's eve

I went as a Fashion Victim.
Yep, that's a shoe sticking out of my, uh, brain.
(No teenagers were harmed in the making of this costume. Though I am sad to say that an innocent shoe was defaced. But all in the name of extravagance.)

Here are the details of the.... well, I guess it could be called a fascinator, if not some sort of headdress??

I tried taking some photos of the other details, but my camera wasn't in a great mood and they didn't focus. This is the best I got: the "bleeding chanel logo" ....a sort of play on the recent dripping Cs that seem to be popping up as of late.

And now I have two pieces of very exciting news to tack onto the end of my halloween post!

First of all, I have decided to create a bloggerish email address. I confess I spent ages trying to come up with something cute and unique but still memorable.
I ended up with which ticks none of the boxes but oh well.
We'll see how it goes :)

Second of all (this is much more exciting!) I just recieved the Beautiful Blogger Award from michelle of Glisters And Blisters :o My first award! :)

Here are "THE RULES."
1. Thank the person who nominated me for this award. (check.)
2. Copy the award & place it on my blog. (check.)
3. Link to the person who nominated me for this award. (check.)
4. Tell us 7 interesting things about yourself.
5. Nominate 7 bloggers.
6. Post links to the 7 blogs i nominate.

Seven interesting things?? I don't think I'm all that interesting... so how about the seven randomest things I can think of?
1. I am currently going through a White Stripes/Liz Phair phase.
2. I am permanently going through a The Cure/Clap Your Hands Say Yeah phase.
3. My most recent purchase was two donuts at Camden Market.
4. I wish I had red hair.
5. I rarely leave the house without a pack of cherry drops and various sugar sachets in my bag.
6. My favourite movies are Howl's Moving Castle, Son Of Rambow, The Breakfast Club and Spirited away.
7. I'd quite like to watch School Of Comedy, cause it has the guy from Son of Rambow in it, but frankly, I just don't have the time.

And just when I thought I had gotten past the hard bit, I have to chose a mere seven bloggers to pass on the award to. To make it easier for myself, I am not going to tag "real life" friends because I get to show you guys the love all the time :)
1. Panda of Stud Muffin
2. Jessica of Fascination Drop
3. Andie of High Voltage
4. Dylana of Nana in Los Angeles
5. Olivia of Olivia's Pizzazz
6. Yiqin of Qin At The Disco
7. Claire of Faboo
These are people that have awesome blogs and have been really nice. I wasn't able to tag everyone I wanted to. Sorry bout that...
Have a nice-day-after-halloween :)
