forget clever rhymes, CHRISTMAS IS IN TWO DAYS


I have resigned myself to the fact that I will not ever have a white Christmas
 and am making up for it by taking a large amount of polaroids of palm trees.

you might have snow but you haven't got weird trees

 and in the holiday spirit...

I am giving you a baby.

That's right.
The final Sunday Of Christmas present is....

A brand new Instax Mini 8 Camera + film!

  3. Hey Justina, it's Isabelle! I think it is so cool that you are into the who fashion blogging/youtubing thing...I remember when we opened a 'hair salon' during recess at Montessori. That's the first thing I think of when I hear your name! I live in South Korea now, and it would be really great to win an Instax mini for Christmas!

  4. Hey hey girl!
    After basically responding to every single one of your tweets (if you haven't noticed, I've started only replying to every other one to ya know, come off as less weird and stalkerish. Is it working? Who knows...), I thought I'd finally pop by over here and show you some love on your blog! And, to be perfectly frank, the sound of a Instax camera may or may not have also reeled me in. ;)
    So, *coughs nervously* here goes nothing...
    My name is Alice! I wish that I could live in a palace! I don't have any malice and I sure do love Dallas (the place)! I'm from the lovely United States and on my Christmas list is *ahem, prepares to launch into monologue* way too many things, among which include and Instax camera, some cool glasses, more clothes to stuff into my messy closet, and a new friend in the form of an attractive young man with a British accent, preferably a prince willing to whisk me off to his palace. I won't be too picky about that last gift though haha! :)
    I've done everything as you've commanded, your highness *bows down with a flourish a la all those butlers in princess movies gosh darn it I watch way too many of those* and am now keeping my fingers crossed for future successes. Best of luck to everyone else entering!

  19. Hey Justina! Well, I saw your piece in Teen Vogue one day and I thought " who is this girl with an awesome blog name, funky hair and amazing style?" So then I went and checked out your blog. Needless to say "A Bent Piece of Wire" has been added to my favorite toolbar. Yeah so my name is Olivia (livvybrowndiva@gmail.com), I live in the U.S. and for Christmas I want the blog fairy to plop a creative blog name in my head because that would be pretty cool.

  20. My name is Olivia and I like long walks in the snow and scouring thrift stores for vintage clothing. My embarrassing email is livvybrowndiva@gmail.com. I currently reside in the land of cheeseburgers and Lana del Rey #USA. For a late Christmas gift I wish the blog fairy would plop a creative blog name in my head (because that would be cool) and a Instax mini so the fairy and I could take selfies. May the odds be ever in my favor.

  21. my name is Anny, i hope that the gift is orders from your blog, thank you very much.

  22. Holler Justina !!

My name is Olly, my email is red_dotti@hotmail.com ( don't judge )
