hey, you guys. do you like my little digi-me? yes, i thought you might. well my good friend* kim who blogs over at what peggy said made it for me. well actually, she made a different one, but then i got a real life hair cut, so she felt my didgi-me needed a haircut too, and this is the finished product. cute, huh!
kim designs these digital portraits, and sells them in her etsy shop alongside a miryad of other adorable and clever designs and handmade goodies. basically, what i'm saying is that you should pop over to kim's page, say hi, and then follow the breadcrumbs to her shop - where if you enter the coupon code nov20 by the end of november, you will recieve 20% off everything.

what are you waiting for really?

*kim and i have been the best of friends for about 3 weeks now. we met on instagram, and instantly bonded over a mutual love of the sale rails at primark, diy, i think the colour yellow and our matching haircuts. shallow? no. i don't think so. we regularly stalk each others insta, twitter, blogs... boyfriend thinks it's weird to make online friends if you don't know them in real life - but, how is it any different really? just because someone is not there in body doesn't make the conversations you have or the mutual likes you share any less real? well, that's what i think, for what it's worth. and really, in a world ruled by the bloggerverse, how is making friends in an online capacity any different to making friends in a sewing circle?

i like to think the online version of me is just a less potty mouthed version of the original, which means that the friends i make on here (you) are people i would befriend in reality. but in reality, it's much harder to make friends unless you're in a bunch of groups or have extra curricular activities. if your only real hobby is online-based, doesn't it make sense that your friends would be the same way inclined?

my point is, i think kimmie (nick names already) is aces, and i'm pretty chuffed we 'met' because it's hard at *this age* to meet new people, let alone make friends in people you really like.

go see her, now!

  1. Aw this post is too cute- love Kim she is a mega babe. I agree about the online friends thing. It's nice to have a circle of like-minded friends via blogs, twitter, etc. Often the people you 'meet' online have much more similar interests to you than the people you can meet in real life because you all gravitate to the same online places. That's the beauty of the Internet! x

    1. right? i mean, i'm fairly new to the internet - having been an avid facebook addict for years as a means to stay in touch with friends across the globe, i only really started blogging this year because of the insistance of my mother to document my life. who would have thought such fun things could come out of it!

    I agree it is so hard to make new friends and meet new people now Uni etc is over.
    Online BFFs are the BEST.

  3. I couldn't agree more with finding amazing online friends!! Not only is it easier than making fleshy real friends (haha), but there are so many more like-minded people to find online too! Granted it was super easy to love everyone you met when we were 5 and everyone liked carebears and icecream... suddenly we get older and (though we still love those fuzzy little guys) our interests become more varied and specific at the same time... it is harder to find a new friend that 'gets' you from amongst the tiny groups of people we run into in person!!! I also started my blog to keep my dear Mama (and other fam & friends) up to date on my day to day now that we are in different states, and was so suprised at the incredible friends that I have met through it! Some of my favourite people are ones I initially met online now!
    E, If fleshy you is just a bit more potty-mouthed than online you, then we are def gonna be great mates hahaaa! We can speak Aussie Sailor to each other hahaa!
    I am so glad you and Kim found each other, and that I found you both (or vice versa...!!!) - just love it!
    K - that was really long! Ooops!!
    Love! xxx
