Day 290: Brooch

Day 290: Brooch

Today is PatchworkDan‘s birthday party which has a brooch theme.  Simple enough – wear a brooch and you’re done… right? Not when you’re me. Initially I thought of going as the Queen, but then I thought of the mockingjay pin brooch from The Hunger Games and I knew that I had to come as Katniss Everdeen. Happy Birthday PatchworkDan! And may the odds for ever be in your favour!

Day 232: Valentine’s Day

Day 232: Valentine's Day

Today is Valentine’s day, a day where people express their love for one another in honour of St. Valentine who secretly wed soldiers who were forbidden to marry their lovers. In honour of this, I have dressed up as Cupid, the God of desire, erotic love and affection, often depicted as a cute cherub with a bow and arrow.

And if you don’t have a significant other, don’t be hating on love today, I say celebrate being single and wish your fellow friends a Happy Singles Awareness day! Or pass them an free e-card available here.
