↑ the *hovering* is key, folks.
Happy late Thursday afternoon, ladies and germs! Here listen, I just noticed something weird about myself that I wanted to bounce off of you. Half the time I write LOL, I have a blank expression on my face. There is no ‘L’ going on. No ‘OL’ going on, either. So yeah I just realized that.
Am I alone in this? Is that, like, weird, of me? It’s ok, I can take it. I have strong emotional muscles (lol that’s a lie. P.S. – I didn’t laugh out loud when I wrote that ‘lol’ WHAT IS HAPPENING TO ME).
Before we get into it today – THREE things: our killer Engagement Shoot Giveaway courtesy of Cameron Leung Photography? Look out for news on THAT tomorrrow, darlings. ;) And we’ve got another fantabulous giveaway that’s going to implode your mind coming real soon-like. I’m already getting excited for you. That’s so weird. Someone needs to change these rules because I’m gonna need to be able to enter these contests in the future. I’m gonna leave that in the Suggestions box. Third thing is, we’re reviewing your incredible and PLENTIFUL Knotty Bloggista emails, 24/7. We’ve already accepted one of y’all on board, and we couldn’t be more excited to reach out to gads more. Soon, pretty people! It’s honestly the best feeling ever knowing so many crazy good writers and stylistas are going to be slamming their thoughts down right here on TKB. Utter AMAZEBALLSNESS.
Ok, ANYWHOSIT… Bamification implemented at bottom, and it’s a pretty salacious one today, my buddies and my friends. Spoiler Alert: Bambino’s nekked in it. Haha, no but seriously, it’s disturbing. Please, consider it a cry for help. But yeah, I have much more important things to address today. ONWARDS!
Did you know that the Earth is almost COMPLETELY OUT of Helium? Like, no more Helium could be our world, MAJORFAST. OMIGOD. Crazy, eh? Well, not really, but that’s mainly because I personally have no idea what the purpose of Helium is in our modern world. Well, outside of making everyone in my life sound like they just got punched in the balls, and providing the air-guts of my balloon animals that end up looking like peoples’ unmentionables every time anyway so it’d probably be a good idea to stop making them. See, lack-of-Helium is ALREADY improving my life and the lives of those around me. OH, and of course, another thing it does quite well is make e-shoots 1000% more awesomeified than we ever thought possible before we introduced GIGANTORballoons into e-shoots.
Emma of Honey Honey Photography is the brains behind this fantastic submission we have here today. Here’s what she shared with me about this astoundingly adorable couple:
This couple is the cutest ever, besides your dog, of course.
Goes without saying. Alright, you may go on, Emma.
On to it, he proposed at DISNEYLAND!
Omgod that’s SO AWESOME, Emma! Aye yiy yiy, sorry, sorry. Go on, tell us more. I won’t interrupt anymore, promise. So, you were saying? About Disneyland?
He had a caricature portrait do the proposing and then it was love ever after! How adorable! They’re a fun and quirky couple so the posing was inspired by a lot of korean romantic comedy dramas (we had korean pop music playing in the background) and all the balloons came in because I just wanted to have a couple-look-like-they’re-flying-away-together photo, teehee. Their wedding will be next year at the beautiful Nixon Library in California and it’ll be peach filled! So exciting! Hope they decide on having caricature artists there, too!
(… Ew. I’m creepy.)
↓ What chemistry looks like ↓
↓ What love looks like ↓
↓ What the Andy Warhol effect looks like ↓
↑ Pssst… it’s also what comfort looks like. ↑
Anyway, so as I was saying, Helium isn’t a renewing resource, and we’re gonna lose the last of it soon. Stephen Colbert discussed this last night on The Colbert Report so naturally I took it as fact. And it obviously saddened me immensely because now I’m going to feel bad about using it. For anything. Because I mean, HOW KILLER is this shoot? Those balloons are RULING MY FACE. I don’t wanna say bye bye to them! Oh what to do. What to do! By the way, we had three balloon-related submissions, just this WEEK alone. Wedding and engagement. But this one? It just floats my boat in an oh-so-special way, and I’m pretty certain that, other than the fact that Emma Rolos of Honey Honey Photography is the cat’s meow (puppy’s roofff?), she’s managed not only to capture some fantastic shots worthy of publication, but she’s also captured something a bit more elusive…
To put it in the words of The Bachelorette‘s Contestant Number Ben (Groban A), it’s… “That whole ‘I love you’ thing.” She’s captured their love. In pictures. I am immensely thrilled when this happens. You have NO. IDEA. It’s not every day!
Also, she’s hilarious because she tweeted me this the other day:
@honeyhoneyloove: @theknottybride I want to eat your dog. It’s the cutest thing EVER. And no, this is not an Asian racist joke because I’m Asian. <3
She doesn’t even have to snort Helium to make me laugh. Thanks, Emma, for the pretties!
And now, in today’s installment of A Day in the Life of Bambino McPup…
You guys, Bams totally tried to molest my face and chest region today. And I have proof, since I figured you guys would all side with him (AS USUAL. sheesh):
Note: I decided this was going to work out best as a silent film installment… even though it’s in pictures. Because the words I was assigning to Bam’s character were just way too… they were… well they were just – just not… not ‘right.’ They were pretty disturbing. I’m a little worried about me, knowing the skit scripts I can think up at this point in the game. So yeah, silent film is the way to go.
I dunno, something goin’ on in this little noggin’ of mine, today. Somethin’ FISHAAYYY...
No, but seriously, he DID totally feel me up today. Weirdness.
And then he got all serious-face on me. That was creepers.
That’s right… a highly disturbing Bam post FOR THE WIN!
I like balloons.
OK, so this engagement shoot. How much do you love it?!!! Actually, I’m assuming you guys’ll like it, of course. Which I shouldn’t do. First rule of Avoid Making An Ass of U And ME Club is Not To Assume Things. Jeeesh, I keep forgetting that. We get taught that in grade school. But yeah, environmental issues aside, SERIOUSLY HOW GREAT IS THIS. I can’t get enough of these big fat steroidal balloons all flyin’ in my face! So fun! Isn’t it fab what they bring to a shoot?
Also, and of infinite more importance, you guys all know I’m totes in love with love. Right? Ok, obvs. #DUH. #Winning. But seriously folks, I think the most important element when it comes to photos of oneselves (that’s not a word, is it. hmm) is that your immense, unwavering, uncontrollable megalove shines the eff THROUGH those pictures you get back. And this shoot? HELLLLOOOOOOOOO, LOVE. Your shining face is upon us.
… your thoughts? On any of it, as per usual. You can call me one-screw-loose, too, if you want. Because after that Bam montage? … I totally would.
And by the way, if you didn’t pick up on it yet, the two things I dig for engagement shoots are 1) luftballons (99, preferably, if you can manage) and 2) your stinkin’ LOVE. Kbye!
xoxo! – Alison
