"It's Susan Sarandon and Dita Von Teese"/"Why can't I have everything I want?"

Today was Valentine's Day which is kind of fun I guess if you're not superbly cynical, bitter or twisted. It's fine. Whatever. You can go on about how 'Americanised' we as Australians are becoming and you can go on about lots of other stuff but it is kind of sweet and a totally positive thing to take part in, so why not. I'm only into it if it is like an equal thing though, like men give flowers to women who give flowers to women who give flowers to men who give flowers to men. Share the lurrve! Valentine's Day can hardly be ignored in my family because my Mum's a florist. I help her out on big days like today which is fun. One customer came in and said "It's Susan Sarandon and Dita Von Teese" as in Mum was Susan and I was Dita, as in we look like them, and it was weird but funny. My Mum does kind look like Susan Sarandon but I don't look like Dita Von Teese apart from me wearing red lipstick which tends to make a lot of people tell you you look like a lot of people.

I don't really have anything to post here but one thing I loved was this collage that the lover-ly Petra made so here ya go and happy V DAY ya heard!

    1. We should have Valentine's day every day so everyone shows each other how much they love them all the time! It shouldn't have to be between two people in a relationship, either. I think friends and family can share the lurve on Valentines day - to an extent of course.. ha ha

  2. Valentines day can be fun, but I feel like it is centered around boy-girl normal people relationships, plus on facebook (yep... facebook the center of eviiilll) everyone is like nooo I am single (no offense if you do this, I just think it is funny)... Oh and this picture is quite interesting, I like the flowers on her boobs and stuff, super cute!

    1. Hi Charlotte!
      Don't worry I don't voice my sorrows in public, plus, being single is great if you're in the right frame of mind! Facebook is definitely not the place for complaints I think they are less tolerable on there than in real life, ha!
      Yes, I illustrate for Rookie :) Fun times!
      I'll be sure to look our for your article on Monday. That's so super!!!
      Thanks for your comment
      Love Minna xox

    1. Hi Yalei! It SO was me, and I wanted to say hi but I didn't because I didn't know if you were up or sleeping or if it was too early to come into your room uninvited/unexpected.. BUT the house is so cool. And yeah I had to lug those stupid paintings all the way from my house to Footscray! But they made it hooray! See you at the opening wooooooooo fun times ! xoxox
