What the hell is a flying green song-rabbit?!

Grongbit (GReen sONG rabBIT) is the result of our nicknames combined. "Our" meaning the three founding authors. The flying comes from our guest-turned-permanent blogger, Butterfly Coffin.

And yes, rabbits can too fly, sing and be green.

Pamper Yourself At Home

The following article was something I had saved, but figured I'd share it with everyone here too so we can all enjoy some relaxation time!

A treat for your feet
Sit down, get comfy and arm yourself with some warm water, nail clippers, a foot file and a buffer for a professional quality pedicure at home.

Face fantastic
Facial masks are the ultimate in relaxation and if used a couple of times a week, they can drastically improve the quality of your complexion.

Salt soak
A simple soak in the tub can release the tension from aching muscles (or cure the pain of last weekend's cocktail bender) and will leave you feeling relaxed and refreshed. Fill your bath with warm water and add bath salts or essentials oils. If you're feeling adventurous, try a milk bath. Pick up a packet of milk powder from the grocery store and add two table spoons to warm water. The enzymes in the milk will activate on your skin and leave your body feeling super soft. Add some lavender oil for the ultimate relaxation.

Sweet as sugar
Smooth and glowing skin is easy to achieve using a homemade sugar scrub. Mix brown sugar with aloe vera and jojoba oil until it forms a smooth paste. Rub into the skin in a circular motion, and watch the dead skin cells literally wash away.

Treasured tresses
To spruce up your mane, opt for a DIY hair treatment. To counter dry, brittle or damaged hair, try mashed avocado, banana, cocoa butter, olive oil or honey. Massage a small amount of ingredient into damp, unwashed hair, making sure special attention is paid to the ends.

Nail it!
Start with removing dead skin from the nail with a cuticle stick. Then shorten and shape your nails with a good quality nail file, ensuring you file in the one direction to avoid nail damage. Massage cuticles with a few drops of cuticle oil and buff to give the nail a healthy base. Add a quality base coat and finish with a super-glossy nail lacquer.

Cucumber cure
Whether it is a constant dryness, fine lines or crow's feet, the eye area is considered the most complained-about area on the face. To make simply steep chamomile tea in boiling water, add one tablespoon of aloe vera gel, two teaspoons of peeled and seeded cucumber and half a teaspoon of honey and blend until smooth. Apply to the eye area and leave set for 30 minutes.

Also included waxing, but how is that relaxing as much as painful?

I'm in such a shopping mood it's really bad...

Incu hs a sale starting tomorrrow and I'm really anticipating what pieces from Marc by Marc jacobs, Lover, Alexander Wang and Acne they have (and many other labels I havent heard of!). Everything under $100 and most under $50! But today I saw such a beautiful dusky pink blazer and I really want that too and this dress with a tie back sash was so pretty =((

I was all good on shopping just a month ago and then this whole search for a birthday dress and shoes has sent me into a shopping frenzy....

This summer I'll be looking forward to wearing a lot of pastel and nude colour clothing. In anything sheer, backless, cut outs, silk or chiffon (all combined?). Still don't feel I've acquired enough florals and loose light blazers! Also I'll be wearing my lace bodysuit under anything sheer and omg can't wait to wear my maaxi dress.

On the other hand am also looking for leather shorts and perfectly loose blouses. Slouchy singlets and loose t shirts with gold bracelets pushed up into an armband and chunkier metalwear necklaces are also on my want list. Any jewellery from peter lang or Samantha Wills too!

Grrr I hate not having a job, needs income to buy what I want and need money to go out to wear what I buy... Don't wan't bf to always pay for me.... Jobs please be available....

It has been a long while since my last morbid, emo post.

But sometimes you just get one of those days where you physically want to slice your face off so that you don't have to look at it in the mirror.

It's just one of those days where nothing is right, you're stuck and you're ugly to boot.
