The masks that the monsters wear



Bambi pants: Emma Cook, Off the shoulder top: Vika Gazinskaya for Other Stories, Fur: Miss Selfridge, Shoes: Zara, Purse: 3.1. Phillip Lim

I am obsessed with deer, as you can tell from my header. But all is not what it seems, I am also scared of them. Illogical? I totally agree. It all started with that trip every child has to Santa's grotto. I was 6, meeting the one and only Santa was an exciting prospect, the internet wasn't really a thing so I didn't know about this, turns out a sketchy Santa would be pretty low down on my list of my childhood induced fears. I was petting Dancer, or Vixen, or one of the other 7, while eating a particular delicious Mars Bar ice cream, having a great time, when the deer spooks, turns its head, and smacks me with its antlers. 

The dropped ice cream and bruised face were a disappointing fact of life, but the fear developed on Christmas eve when my sister told me they would be back to finish the job. I had to stay in my parents bed that Christmas Eve.

P.S. So I don't seem discriminative I am scared of a large range of animals, including, not limited to; horses, hippos, leeches, eels, snakes, any spiders bigger than a money spider, octopi, needle fish, cookie cutter sharks, killer whales, not a fan of dolphins either, big dogs, seagulls from Scotland. Then there is everything that is not an animal that I am scared of, from the doctors to tissues. Yup.

With love from,

  4. I always love how you take beautiful photos outside, in the brisk air! Everyone thinks I'm crazy for doing it but you totally get it... It makes me feel alive! ;) I adore you boho top, it makes me think of Jen's Pirate Booty.

    I HATE eels. Even cartoon ones. They make me want to be sick! SPEW.

    1. I am glad eels freak someone else out too. The intense eyes, the fact their mouths open like that, the creepy movement. Such freaky little shits.

  8. Beautiful picture! I can't believe you;re scared of deer and all those other animals - I absolutely love animals and also want to hold them or interact with them whatever (especially snakes, theyre quite heavy and warm if you've ever held one). Apart from leeches, thankfully we don't have to worry about them too much in the UK :) xx

    1. When I was a kid you could go to a science fair for kids that had massive snakes every year, they always plonked them on top of you. Didn't help the fear. I just find them untrustworthy.

      I have only seen leeches in the UK! Maybe they are Scottish leeches.

  9. all your jewellery looks so pretty! and that top is lovely on you as well:-) after that story i think it's not even strange that you're afraid of deer, that sounds horrible, ha! (on the other hand, being scared of tissues does sound a bit weird!) i think i'm more like laila above, and just like petting all kinds of animals, haha:-) xx
