A photo session...Let me re-arrange

During the colder months I have to relocate to the living room to take my product photos. Cats are somewhat interested.
Whatcha doing?

Looks interesting...

Let me have a closer look

Me too...

Let me re-arrange that for you

No fun, I cannot do anything :/

Me too ....  Cute cat card by EinBierBitte on Etsy.

 Already longing for spring...and dreaming of new outfits. Hoodie, skinny pants and shoes by Newlook. Necklace by me ;)

But to be a bit more realistic, here's what I'd actually need right now. Duet Busy Day snow boots by Crocs.

 While desperately trying to find something to listen to to cover the noise the neighbor was making with his car engine running all evening, I found this great site, TableTop Audio, "Original, 10 minute ambiences and music for your tabletop role-playing games".
It works great as background noise for any activity requiring some concentration...and I admit I have already fallen asleep to the sound of  "Orbital Platform" several times.

 I guess this house is already kind of famous. This is Bob Hope's UFO house, located in Southern California. It was designed  in the 70's by architect John Lautner. It reminds me of so many novels from the Golden Era of science fiction...in my mind this is straight out of the planet Aurora in Isaac Asimov's books.  More photos available here.

I  currently am in a house-remodeling mood. This wallpaper from Anthropologie would be perfect for my living room. 
 I recently discovered this amazing shop on Etsy, ParlorTattooPrints. I love the retro style...and it doesn't hurt they have similar movie tatstes to mine ;)  Star Wras, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Wes Anderson, Tim Burton and more...

How SQUEEEEE is this magnet? It is by PopDoggie on Etsy. It'd make a great Valentine present for any cat lover.

Disney, well Alice in Wonderland, ice sculptures

The Tweedles
 Last week of December I visited the Disney ice sculptures exhibition in Liège, Belgium. It was quite magical, despite the long lines and noise... and the cold. I am not a fan of cold, especially when you're taken from a damp mild weather outside to a dry way below freezing temperature inside. It took me really long to get warm again even though my visit was really short.
I also only took photos of the Alice section. I wanted to take more, but 1. I was too cold and 2. I could tell the photos didn't turn out too well. I need more practice to shoot transparant things in the dark ;) So squint your eyes and maybe you'll see what I saw.

The Queen of Hearts

The Caterpillar

The King in the Castle tower.

Card guards at the Castle entrance 
The White Rabbit...yes,yes, behind the Caterpillar...

More Card guards

Mad Tea Party

 I  know  I posted it here before...but I love it ;) The animal calendar by Frau Ottilie on Dawanda. My favorite month is May...with its May bug.

 Another killer dress by Yumi. This one is called Twinkle Twinkle dress and is covered with a star chart. Available here.
 Isn't this the cutest moth ever? Needle felted moth by Nodsu on Etsy.

 DHC deep cleansing oil...in retro Alice in Wonderland packaging. My Japanese friend sent those to me for my Alice collection... I decided to try the product but I was not that crazy about spreading olive oil (well, not just olive oil but mainly) on my face...what a pleasant surprise. It works great, removes make up like a charm, leaves the skin soft...and is super easy to remove with water. I guess I was expecting something like those horrible 2 part make up removers, you know, the type you have to shake to mix...and are greasy and get in your eyes...
No longer available in the Alice packaging (unless you try eBay) but you can get the regular product anywhere that sells DHC.

More Alice in Wonderland. During my winter break I visited the exhibition of Disney ice sculptures in Liège. It was really neat...especially the Alice  part (no,no, I am not biased). I'll make a post with all my photos soon.
