PAPER FLOWERS.

Once upon a time the sun shone and the neglectful princess was happy, so she shared the sunshine and they all lived happily ever after. The end.**

Okay, so I know that story may not be a witty or a cute or an even remotely deserving of any adjective except for maybe "extraordinarily lame," but I'm no writer (point: I should be working on my English creative WRITING assignment but, at last, I have given up because it's just too difficult) so HAH. But, the point of the above "story" was to say 1) Sorry, I've been a blogger fail but 2) Look at the gorgeous sunshine and I HOPE YOU FEEL HAPPY NOW. Happy? Good.

**Disclaimer: the above story is based on the true story of this blog where I am the "princess" and you are the "they." Just substitute the words until it makes sense. And, yes, I made myself the princess. Because I'm the writer with the artistic license and creative freedom and THAT'S WHAT I WANTED. Shbam!



Oh, look guys, I even put on my smoldering princess face for you. Slash I don't do smoldering and the sun was in my eyes. But you know, whatever... *wink wink Insert pick-up line or whatever people use these days to be "smoldering"*

These new tights are so 70s dripped off the over sized shirts and fell onto the tights and I LOVE it. I'll probably get sick of them because they're slightly obnoxious, but I'll cherish them until that moment comes.

If you're observant and thought to yourself "oh hey, that necklace looks like it's broken.." then 500 points; YOU ARE RIGHT. It broke. Darnnn. Also, I rarely wear this dress (which is worn as a shirt). It's made from this material that I'm pretttty sure makes my sister's basketball shorts, but that's kind of what's cool about it.

Now, if I didn't feel the need to ramble between every picture I post as if you guys are idiots and needs explanations for broken necklaces and stuff, I would continue on with my story and say something like and then the princess cuddled with her beloved puppy and thought about her prince charming, while sniffing her long lost paper flowers. (Not based on a true story). But the fluidity of the story just won't work so HEY GUYS HERE'S MY PUPPY AND MY PAPER FLOWERS.

I told my sister to grab my dog. She did. And some paper flowers. I'm organizing the Green Fashion Show event at my school and I somehow got my sister to VOLUNTEER (I didn't even bribe her!) to make these flowers. Chyeaaah. Slash she hasn't made them in a few weeks so fingers crossed she doesn't ditch this sitch.

And hi there, Daisy. Are you my prince(ss) charming or something?!

Oh man, I feel like it's been awhile since I've had a real post that I'm high on one of those giddy "ohmygodhowareyou?itsbeenforeverrrrr" highs. (Which, P.S. I rarely EVER get on). So feel special?

And they all lived happily ever after...
(Remember: "they" = YOU. So have a happy week!)

(P.S. I specifically named my post "Paper Flowers" to say that it reminds me "Paper Heart" which reminds me of "Plastic Hearts" which is a great song. SO CHECK IT OUT. Dirty Pretty Things = Amazing.)
