Day 27, A picture of you last year and now and how have you changed since then?

Last year, for some reason, I wanted to be Barbie.  So I bleached my hair like crazy and wore really obnoxious makeup and pretty skanky clothes...
 This year, I've learned what makeup looks good on me and how to apply it properly.  I've also went back to my natural hair colour and let my eyebrows grom in a little.  I've also discovered Lolita so I don't show very much skin anymore. 
I feel like this year I look and feel much better.

Day 26, A photo of somewhere you’ve been to.

I've been meaning to post these pictures.  A few years ago I went on a vacation by myself.  I just went to Vancouver Island (which is about 12 hours away from Creston) to sit on the beach.  Yep, that's pretty much all I did.  So here you go:
 Me on the way there.
 The view from the beach I went to the most.
 Cute broken shells and sand dollars.
 More boats.  I love boats.
 Star fish.
 Cool stairs that get covered up at high tide.
 Pretty boat.
 Old boat.  Haha, sorry for all the boats...
 Me.  I had to set the camera on a fence.  That's why you need to go on vacation with other people.
Cute house near the beach.

Day 25, What’s in your purse?

Oh yay!  I just cleaned my purse too.  Kind of...  You don't need to see my purse since I just posted a picture of it last week.  Anyway, I'll just go take pictures now...

Ta da!
In my purse:
(clockwise)  random receipts, chocolate, camera, phone, wallet, makeup bag, keys

In my makeup bag:
 (clockwise) mirror, tin of Tylenol, hair things, ring, perfume, Chap Stick, lip gloss, earrings (hard to see...)

In my wallet:
(clockwise) change, bills, cards.  This is actually a Jewellery roll (whatever that is) but it makes a cute wallet.

See?  I told you I am addicted to Betsey Johnson.

What I bought.

Once again, I'm sorry for the lack of decent posts.  We're moving for the next couple of weeks so when I'm not at work I'll be packing and moving boxes.  And I'm really not in the mood to be doing anything, haha.  Anyway, onto the good stuff:
500 000 000 sprinkles.  They were on sale, a big tub for only $1, so I bought all of them...
 A children's book about how to act like a princess.
 Giant diamond bracelet and My Melody watch.
 Dora the Explorer container to bring sugar to work so I can drink tea.
 Lace table runner.
 A little bowl.  500 points to you if you can tell me what that symbol is.
 Hello Kitty pj bottoms.
 The Light Princess book.  Has anyone ever heard of this fairytale before?
 My mum actually bought this for me because it's cuuuute!

What have you bought recently?

Day 23, 15 facts about you.

I'm really glad this one fell on one of my rare days off, phew!  Anyway, I'll get started now:

  1. My dad named me after a girl he had a huge cruch on in high school.
  2. I am obsessed with the Harvest Moon video games.
  3. I am terrified of paper cuts.  If I get one I hyperventilate and cry.
  4. Almost all my underwear have Hello Kitty on them.
  5. I could eat chicken burgers for every meal, yum!
  6. I don't want to have a wedding, I just want to be married.
  7. My favorite movies are all Disney movies.
  8. My favorite scent is coconut.
  9. I hate pineapple.  I can't even stand the smell of it.
  10. I only use Betsey Johnson purses.
  11. I'd rather clean and sit around my house all day then hang out with my friends most of the time.
  12. I've gained 20lbs since high school.
  13. I just bought a gamecube to play video games, haha.  Going back in time...
  14. I talk to my cats more than any normal person should.
  15. I collect vintage kids' books.  Especially Alice in Wonderland.
Ta da! Am I super interesting or what?
here is an awful cellphone picture of a couple of rednecks for you.

Day 22, A letter to someone who has hurt you recently.

Dear Dopey:

Why-oh-why would you do such a thing to me?  Literally attacking me just to rip my new green necklace out of my hand and steal it...  I thought you loved me.  Now I'll have scars to prove otherwise.  I hope you enjoy the necklace, you can keep it.  I'll never find it again anyway, I'm much too big to fit into your many hiding places.  That is all.

xoxo, Miss R.

(actually, this might have something to do with it...  Sorry Dopey, I forgive you)

Day 21, A photo of something that makes you happy.

Just a side note really quick: If you find a cute little container that you want but it has cheap lip gloss in it DO NOT scoop it out with your finger- it doesn't come off.  Use paper towel.

Aaaaaaanywho, since I don't want to be repetitive I'm not going to post a picture of my family, or my man, or my cats, or tea.  They do make me happy, but duh!  You already know that so here it is:
Thrift store shopping, yay! 
My mum and I go twice a week, every week.  Most of what you see in my What I Bought posts come from local thrift shops.

Day 20, The meaning behind your blog name.


Simple pimple.  It describes who I am.  I'm a wannabe princess who just wants to add anything and everything kawaii and kitsch to her life.

Big News!

Sorry I haven't been posting very much besides the 30 Days thing, I've been quite busy because...

My man and I have decided to move about 15 minutes out of town onto a little farm.  It should be a lovely change from the apartment.  I'll post pictures of it when I go there next, but be warned, it's a fixer-upper.

In other, more exciting, news, I am also getting married sometime this spring.  We should probably figure out exactly when so we can let people know.  It'll be a tiny wedding (hopefully) I want a country, shabby chic thing going on so if you know of any good ideas or sites or pictures please let me know.

Day 18, Something you crave a lot.

Day 17, A photo of you and your family.

Now I am sad.  I have no recent pictures of my whole family together...
This first picture is the most recent, from when I was single.  This was my family then:
 This is from before my man and I were on that (stupid) little break:
 And this is the last picture of me with my parents and siblings.  I think it is from Christmas 2008.

Day 15, Something you don’t leave the house without.

This is an easy one, my purse.
Isn't it lovely?
Betsey Johnson of course.  I love Betsey Johnson, probably too much.
But you can't see what's inside it just yet, that's coming soon.

Day 14, A TV show you’re currently addicted to.

Oh God, there are so many!  Big Love, Gossip Girl, Jersey Shore, Teen Mom...

A lovely gift.

Laura and her roommates were doing a bit of downsizing the other day.  They were packing things up to send away to the thrift shop when they came across this:
It is a vintage sugar bowl from Japan. Annnnd...  They gave it to me!
