Bunny Print & The Science of Fireworks


This baby-blue-and-pink bunny print dress was handmade by the completely amazing  Freckles and Ginger. After seeing a couple of her handmade dresses on instagram, I checked out her etsy store, Freckles and Ginger - and after discovering that she gives 100% of the money she makes from the dresses to a charity called Edgars mission, which provides a home for animals who have been abused, and not to mention that the clothes she makes are freaking amazing, I knew I had to have one for myself.

shoes - Asos
bracelet - gift from Freckles and Ginger
belt - Thrifted
necklace - c/o Les Folles Marquises

I really liked this post from IFLS about the science of fireworks, so I'm going to repost it here (hey, I'm on holidays).

This is how you get different kinds of fireworks! "Sodium produces yellow/gold colors. Barium creates green, copper compounds produce blue, strontium salts give you red and titanium metals give you silver coloured sparks.

Other commonly used chemicals are carbon which provides the fuel, oxidizers which produce oxygen for burning, magnesium which increases the overall brilliance and brightness, antimony that gives you a "glitter" effect and calcium which deepens the colors."

  9. Oh, I adore this outfit! I've been trying to find a dress similar in style but with kitties. The bracelet is also just darling, I have been enjoying accessorizing with resin or plastic candies and sweets recently. They feel so playful and cute :3.

  11. I've been following the blog for a while now... and I absolutely love it. You are such an inspiration for me (eventhough our styles are completely different! ajajaja).

    And, um... I hope u don't mind if I tag the URL of your blog in mine (cause I just did). I'm sorry! I got excited, it's my second entry and I was talking about dressing according to you own lifestyle, and your blog was the perfect example.

    Oh, btw, sorry for the lousy english, i'm peruvian, so... well... you know. Jajajaja.

    Adios! Espero que estés teniendo un viaje excelente.

    1. YES. Absolutely. It even works so well with my older-style canon; it's even better than updating your camera, getting this lens. Taking photos on the lowest aperture makes them soo pretty :)
