Don't forget to enter the US and CANADA only GIVEAWAY

Before the real post I'd like to say one more thing about the giveaway. Please remember to post the extra entry if you are a follower. I will try to add it on my giveaway sheet if you forgot, but blogger has weird ways of having different profile names and pictures for one person, so I might overlook you. Just thought I'd let you know, that way you can be 100% sure to get all the entries you deserve being one of my lovely followers. - Thanks and good luck!

Just a Little Update

Today was an uneventful day. It included some working out, eating lots of those cupcakes and taking pictures of my cat.

Maybe you have noticed my new design for Etsy. It's a Pucca bookmark (also available as a brooch). I made and listed one earlier, but it was sold the same day, so I thought I'd make a new one.

Yesterday was more exciting, it had been ages since I went to the movies with my mom. We didn't have any easter plans and had been wanting to see a few movies. I'd already given up on seeing "Up in the Air" but somehow it was still showing and we were both up to it. It was great!

After that we were able to pop into H&M about half an hour before closing time. I hadn't been in one for months, but made up for that now. Or actually my mom did, it was her treat.

I was hoping they'd have some Sonia Rykiel items on sale and they did. Just a few. I managed to get this little hot pink sleeveless cardigan. I can see it might be a pretty weird item to wear, but I love it. Have you noticed the teeny weeny pockets?

They had one of those little racks with sales hidden away at the back and it was there that I found the beauty you can see below. One little black and purple dress that happened to be in my size, for only 9, yes 9 euros. It was love at first sight.

Now I usually don't buy H&M hoodies at full price, but this one seemed like the perfect solution to my art school problem. Which is being afraid to get paint on my clothes. I don't think I'll still have that fear wearing this:

I can't believe I only have four art school classes left. Then I'll have to wait till September. Waiting - a word which here means working really hard on my portfolio to make sure I'll actually make it into art school full time. (Don't you just love Lemony Snicket? I should really finish reading the rest of the series.)

P.S. How was your easter?
