Bunny Brooch From iamsjm*

*Waves* Hello! Apologies for the serious lack of updates- lots of things have happened that are occupying my time which leaves me with none to write even though I’ve amassed a huge collection of potential products that I want to review in the meantime!

I’ve been contemplating on what product to review as my first “proper” beauty-related review of 2013… but I only have photos of foundations and my current crushes are a foundation and a cleanser, and they’re products which I’ve been reviewing a lot… I haven’t been free enough to photograph the eyeshadows and eyeshadow palettes that I’m using and loving so far, so I thought I’d do something different for this one! It’s something beauty-related at least, still, and something I really really adore! :P

Now I have a serious love for handmade items. When I read Trona of Aye Lined‘s post about a handmade porcelain Bunny Brooch from iamsjm*, I was immediately smitten! Doesn’t help that my husband calls me “bunny” or “rabbit” affectionately at times ever since we started dating on account of my “rabbit teeth”, so deep down inside I do have a little soft spot for bunnies/rabbits :P  I don’t usually wear brooches though and have never owned one properly myself (The only one I have is a vintage one from Mum which I never wore), but this was just too cute to resist!

So I got one. iamsjm* themselves don’t ship internationally, but an email inquiring about it pointed me to Not On The High Street, where they listed it for me, so I was able to get my hands on it! Hurrah for wonderful customer service here :D

It comes in a small, simple yet beautiful, monogrammed gift box and is well-lined and well-packed to protect against any bumps in transit.
