さようなら


I've fried my brain the last couple of days writing a blog about my favourite things to do with Japan. I love so much about the country and I hope it comes across in the blog. The prize is a trip to Japan. You know I would be so over the moon if I won but the likelihood is I won't. But still it was fun anyway! Maybe I'll go one day when I'm old and rich, pehaps, sigh.
Here it is

Anyway part of the rush to get it finished was because I'm off to Devon off tomorrow for a week and the deadline is the 31st!

So I'll be trying to read your posts whilst sitting in front of the open fire!

Here's a couple of photos of me in a leather jacket


 I won a competition with Citizen Rosebud and The Sunglasses Shop UK and got these wonderful Polaroid sunnies! I got the jacket and vest from ebay. Not particularly cheap - oops. but yeah both under £20

I also got this fishtail skirt with little comedy Mexican skulls on it!



bit lumpy. 

I also found this crinoline lady mirror for £2.99!
it's a difficult thing to photograph! Also you can see my new kawaii phone cover!

I also picked up this for 79p

it's true

And... I saw these - should've bought them



Have a lovely week - I'm hoping for decent weather!!

Hey, Rock Chick, don't be thinking you can out-bitchface me! You look fabularse in those shades and leather jacket, and I am thinking you would really suit a great pair of jeans, look at those fab legs!
Love the black top with your new skirt. I saw one of those mirrors in an antiques/collectables place, but it was more expensive than £2.99!
You ARE a genius, so I hope whoever is running the competition recognises this facts and sends you off to Japan.
Sperm candles? Extra hard? So many jokes, I don't know where to start...
Have a great time in Devon, love! xxxxxxxx

You look awesome in that coat with that t and jeans!!
I want to go to Japan too.... I told Mr. maybe we can go when our future kids are over 5 yrs and will remember the trip!!! *lol* (Cause there is no way we could afford to go any time soon. Unless we win the Lotto *finges crossed*) *heheh*
That lady mirror is very pretty!

SPERM CANDLES.....??? What in the world?! LOL
Someone will buy those to inseminate themselves especially if they are extra hard. *bahahah* =O

You are totally rocking out in that first outfit!! If you were here I'd invite you to session with my band, er, rather, my shriekfest which is a more accurate term. The sunglasses are excellent for this look. And I like your hi-low skullfest skirt. I'm sending vibes for you to get on that plane to Japan! I see that the candles were "manufactured expressly for wine merchants and Italian warehousemen"...LOL! I wonder how hardy the wicks were!

OMG, sperm candles? Are those the things that light the way as the sperm spawn up stream? I'm glad I never used those. Sperm always seemed to find their way into my chasm too easily. ;) Which is why I had so dern many kids.

I love that rocker look on you with your pink hair. Very hip! And what a gorgeous mirror! I'm headed over to read that blog link you posted. See ya!

I haven't read all your Japanese blogs yet but I really enjoyed what I have read. I left a few comments but then I wasn't sure if people were meant to or not, just delete them if you need to. Love your rock chick look, I'm always going to like that look even when I'm a hundred years old, and I love the Mexican skirt with the headband, I like anything Mexican style.
That mirror is such a cool find though words fail me when it comes to those candles! Maybe it's just as well you left them behind for someone who really needs them, whoever that may be.
Have a lovely time in Devon, hope the sun comes out for you and good luck with the Japan competition! xx

Have a wonderful time in Devon, I'm counting down to my holiday too I will most definitely be taking my purple Hello Kitty bucket!

Kitty said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

Oh so rock'n'roll darling!! Great pose and attitude!! Those sperm candles are bloody hilarious, love it!! Your mirror is so pretty, I love them, we have similar in the shop just now.xx.

Penelope Cat said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

You look fab - love the vest and jacket and that skirt is gorgeous. I also love the mirror and I can't believe you didn't get the candles - I definitely would've!

Good luck in the competition, got my fingers crossed for you.

Love both those outfits especially the hard ass rock chick look. You really suit those skinny jeans and who does love a young Robert Smith? That skirt is so sweet, the print's ace. I can't believe you've got all your Japan blogs up and done, it must have killed you, the effort you've put in is obvious and if you don't win then the judges deserve a bitch slap!
The shape of that mirror is lovely, I didn't notice the dreaded crinoline lady on your Facebook picture. Sperm candles? Is that something to do with them being made from whale fat? Eeeek!
Have a fab holiday and may the sun shine for you! xxxx

Rock chicktastic! I love the t shirt..I had one like that once! Well done on the Japan blogs and if they don't pick you, I'll go round and sort 'em.
Sperm candles...f'nar, f'nar. Yep you should have got them.
Have a great time in Devon.

You really rock that jacket. I'm not sure what the fascination is with Japan these days. My son always wanted to go. He did make it for one day when his band played a big festival there. I dream of seeing the UK.

Great outfits, you are super kawaii!!!! I really love the leather jacket and congratulations for the prize, you are stunning with those sunglasses and the whole outfit shows your great rock and roll attitude!!The colourful mexican skulls are amazing too!
Those candles are brilliant!
Lots of love!

good luck Clare! Your Japanese-inspired blog looks amazing. I'm also digging your Cure shirt look, and glad that you still have the pink hair, since I LURV it.

Krista said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

That leather jacket is the shit! I love the spikes on the collar best and it looks really fab with the pink hair baby! Robert Smith is a favorite of mine and I love this tee! I am also loving the print on the fish tail skirt!

You look badass in your leather jacket and cool sunglasses. Good luck with the competition to win a trip to Japan.

Julie liverpoolmrs said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

Ew what ARE sperm candles?? The mind boggles!!!

Lynn Dylan said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

Hi Clare! Your black jacket looks awesome! I hope you win your Japan trip. That would be beyond exciting! One of my sons studied Japanese for a year in our homeschool, he has studied Karate for years, and he just loves all things Japan! Everytime I see some little something for him that has a Japanese feel to it, I am inclined to get it for him for his "someday" house.

Extra hard sperm candles... what the... OK I'm just gonna leave that one there. SOOO many roads to go down with that one (no pun intended)!! I'm gonna catch up with your essay in a minute but I just wanted to say I LOOOOVE the Robert Smith top and that second outfit with the fishtail skirt is my idea of perfection. xxxxxx

Btw, did you get the goth magazine?

"Golly, the sperm candles are spluttering!" he ejaculated...

LOVE your rock chick look. Awesome.

Virtually all my friends have just come back from a wedding in Japan. sniff. Not that I'm jealous or anything...
