If you read or comment on my blog, you’ve probably met Brooke–she’s an active member on the blog and today she sent me the best email including some really awesome pics of her rockin’ Shanalogic gear!! She’s even sent a limecrime tutorial that I’m totally going to post very soon! ( I feel like I’d fit in really well in australia and new zealand–Plus Mel (another amazing blog visiter) and Brooke could keep me company!)

Subject: HAPPY SHOPPER :)
Hey hey hey Shana & crew,
So this email has been a long time coming I know but hey at least I’ve finally sat down and written it.
I wouldn’t usually take the time to write a thank you email but with the fabulousness that is your shop I think it’s warranted.
I remember stumbling across your site last year in the midst of my journey away from home. I was living in London and was visiting my local internet cafe (which consisted of people around me looking up gay porn & internet dating sites). It was a cold miserable day when I discovered the Ghetto Blaster necklace (I think it was made by Sabrina’s Charms) and I fell in love – even the cold rain and freezing British wind didn’t seem so bad. I bought it the very next time I was paid (which meant I ate less that week – work was not as constant as I wanted it to be and I spent all my moneyÂ seeing delicious British bands and drinking delicious British beer) and had it sent to my home address in Australia as a happy Christmas gift when I got home.

I remember arriving home and being excited (not only to see my family who I hadn’t seen for 6 1/2 months) – I finally got to wear my new necklace :) I had a super special parcel waiting for me and it helped me overcome the jetlag and basic after-travel sadness that comes with that – I just looked at the necklace and *grin*.
Since then I’ve been a constant visiter and buyer – If I had enough money I think I’d own more things but I’m so super duper happy with the things I have managed to buy. I know there is room for more in my collection but I won’t be greedy,Â I have plenty of time to build it up!
Recently I bought the Bandit love necklace and it has been worn out a lot – some of my friends though it was a cat and I got a bit mad at them – HELLO what cat has a bandit mask on??? It’sÂ quite clearly a racoon!!! I have always loved racoons – I think my obsession started young – my first toy was a stuffed racoon (I might send you a pic one day). I’ve loved my Raccy (yeah I was real creative on the naming of my stuffed toys when I was younger) for as long as I can remember and now I feel extra happy when I wear my necklace because it reminds me of that very special stuffed animal at home :)

Thank you Shana for the fabulous finds, for supporting indie artists, for shipping to Australia at a reasonable cost, for always entertaining me with your blog, for being super awesome and for the fun magnets I have got with my orders!
I have attached links to some pics of me wearing some of my gear – I’ve also been writing some makeup tutorials and raving about Lime Crime Makeup on my blog (http://baaarooke.blogspot.com) feel free to use any of the pics or link to my blog if you want – you have my permission :)
Keep up the fabulous work Shana & crew – it is appreciated much more than you can ever imagine!!!
Merry Christmas (I hope your fingers aren’t hurting too badly with all the Christmas orders that I’m sure you’ve been happily packing for some very happy customers)!!!!!
Super duper love
