Does this count as a Bunny Photo Bomb?

My friend Christine was disappointed at seeing the same photo of Nefi at the top of my blog for an entire week. That was just after my trip to New York.  This time I've neglected my blog for over a week, and comment rounds for at least two. Please except my sincere apologies. 


1 Rescue Rabbit + 2 Allergies + 3-Day Field Trip + 4 Days of Back Hiccups = 10 Days of Blog Post Lag
My plan was to... use apple bits to entice Nefi to bunny bomb my photos.  Ha-ha! It didn't exactly go my way.

If you want to experience bunny bombs at their finest, visit The Dapper Bun.  Bandit is a pint sized Dwarf Hotot Rabbit.  You can't miss Mary Ann's exceptional style? She scores high in my book for taking excellent care of her boots.

My new plan is...no plan at all.  I'm prepared to wait for unplanned Nefi bombs.




I was not prepared for the Lemon Lift-Off Blouse.  It's not often whimsical prints entice me. I couldn't resist the owls perched on floating moons against a sunny backdrop. But why Lemon Lift-Off? I didn't expect the unstructured, thin Silk to do me any favors.  Reviews suggested the blouse ran large through the chest and small through the hips.  I did a 20 minute finger dance over the order button. Luckily size 6 was out of stock.  I was forced to go with an 8. I normally wear size 6 in Anthro's exclusive Girls From Savoy Brand.

Shop Anthro's Lemon Lift Off Blouse by Girls From Savoy in 100% Silk HERE.

If you are larger than a C cup, size up!  The Silk is very sheer. I layered Anthro's Reversible Tank in Brown under the blouse.  A less obvious Ivory Tank would be a better choice. Next time I plan to wear this with the Lengthening Rays Skirt in Brown (on sale). Size down 1 or even 2 sizes for the Lengthening Rays.

This outfit was inspired by Anthro's July 2011 Catalog Cover Photo.



For a work friendly outfit, I replaced Anthro's AG Stevie Ankle in Green with Jana Herringbone Trousers by Cartonnier.  I picked up Anthro's Glossed Loafers in Turquoise at the Santa Monica Anthro, and received a PA 1 week later when they made sale.  They are no longer available online.  Check Anthro's product page for Pop Backs HERE.

I found a very useful shoe accessory that will give new life to several pairs of Shoes in My Closet.


Issue: My foot is narrow through the instep and heel, and medium to slightly wide across the front. I wear a B or Medium width shoe to accommodate the wider front. My heel slips out of the back of most Medium widths with no tie or vamp strap.  Heel inserts offer a more secure feel, but as I flex my foot while walking, my heel still tends to slip.

Narrow heel slips out of medium width shoe while walking
Solution:  A set of clear stretchy bands that fit over each shoe and across the vamp comfortably. When I walk, the back of the shoe never slips off my heel. I used one set of bands during a 10-hour day.  I compared the used set to the unworn set, and there is no difference in length.  So the good news is, they don't stretch out after at least one wear.  If they hold up for 10 wears (50 cents/wear for 2 sets), I'm happy.  It's possible the bands could break if over stretched. I found them to be fairly resilient.

These will become an absolute necessity for me. I found with only two sets, I tend to forget to use them unless they are inside the shoes when I put them on.  I don't really notice the need until I am walking at a brisk enough pace to cause my heel to slip.  By that time I am already at work.  I plan to order enough sets of bands to place them inside each pair of shoes that needs them.

I know you have all been waiting patiently for photo's of Nefi. See the story of my abandoned Hotot Rabbit HERE.

I allowed her to venture out into the backyard today for the first time. She celebrated with a 180 degree Binky.

Nefi (named after Nefertari 19th Dynasty Egyptian Queen and Royal Wife of Ramses II)

"This is my first time outside since I was rescued. I rubbed my chin on every sprinkler in my territory."


Nefi takes a time out for a manicure 

"Nothing to fear. Every time I checked, the back door was open."



Heishe the Hunter  (still intimidated by this new presence)


"Quiet...I'm huntin' Nefi Wabbit."  


A little backyard predator/prey role reversal

"Shhhhhhh...I'm hunting Heishe scaredy cat."


Left - Nefi and Heishe huddle,  Right - MewTwo looks uninterested


"If we work as a team, we can take MewTwo the Bored."


MewTwo really does look completely bored by the production.


Who will be my 200th follower?

Once you are sure of the diet you are looking
for, you are half way there; you can then narrow it
down. But, it can be done and millions of people
are doing it right now. Instead of doing the same old
thing on the treadmill day in and out, try interval training.
