This is why i hate monkeys

Do not read this if you can't stomache blood and gore i just warn you now lol
Since i can remember my mother has hated monkeys and i realized when i got a little i also hated monkey especially chimps they are the creepiest i actually prefer gorillas to chimps.
I will not go near the monkeys at the zoo ever i can just stand the little ones but the fact that they are so similar to humans its one of the creepiest part about them and the most dangerous.
You can blame humans that decide to keep them as pets for their attacking them because they are wild animals but the things these animals can do are beyond horrible .
Even in the wild though i was just watching i shouldn't be alive on the animal planet and these men went to a chimp reserve that day the electric fences went down and one got out this chimp bite this one mans hand clean off and went after them when they ran the chimp hunted them down and almost killed the one man till his friend saved him. The other man wasn't so lucky they found his body later with his jaw ripped off among other things.
The worst story i saw was the women on Oprah who's faced was ripped off by her friends pet chimp her friend had raised from a baby , you can read the story here .
But to sum it up this women went to feed her friends chimp and he had gotten lose she called her friend to tell her it got loose and she said she would come right over. By the time her friend got there the chimp had already attacked her and was ripped her apart the most horrible bone chilling part was on the 911 call when she just stops and says omg hes eating her the monkey was eating her flesh right off her and she was still alive. I think the worst part is how smart these animals are with the men in the reserve when they tried to fight back they fought like they were fending off an animal but they are smarter than that you have to fight them off like you would with a human who will anticipate your next move or your going to end up with a chunk of your leg gone or your hand missing. I hate monkeys of all sorts i really do i don't care how cute you think you are they aren't so cute ripping off your flesh . This is also coming from someone who likes snakes and spiders lol but i think most people expect the scarier animals to attack them most people don't think a monkey will .
End Rant lol

Interview With Off With Her Head

I had the privilege of receiving one of the lovely Facsicnators from Off With Her Head for a review and i did a little interview with the lovely lady behind the amazing hats and fascinators

How did you decide the name of your shop any interesting back stories?
Off With Her Head came along by accident. Originally we were called Queen of Hearts. I've always been a huge Alice in Wonderland fan and the name originated from the character there. We'd had the web address www.offwithherhead.co.uk and at an event a couple of years ago the organisers had put us on the promo material under the website name and it kind of stuck with people. I think its quite a memorable name and really suits the business while still keeping my Alice theme alive!!

Why did you decide to open up a shop?
I had begun by making hats for myself. I made myself a beautiful Victorian Style Riding Hat to wear at the Whitby Gothic Weekend and people I met kept asking where they could get one for themselves. So I decided to take orders for them, and the business just grew from there. I've learned a lot more skills since then and really love making my hats and fasciantors for other people. So I decided to open the shop to allow more people to see my work! I really love the community spirit that Etsy embodies!

What kinda things can we find in your shop?
Anything you could wear on your head I suppose. I make vintage inspired pieces, hats and fascinators as well as hair accessories and sell vintage finds such as head scarfs and hats. I'm also branching out into some jewelry and bags using some of the skills I've developed through millinery. I've got a new Bridal Range that I'm designing at the moment which should be unveiled some time in April. I'm working on the Summer Range which will feature more pillboxes in bright and pastel shades and some fantastic little polka dot fascinators. I'm also keen to undertake custom work for clients. At the moment I'm working on a phoenix inspired headpiece for a customer. I also enjoy making costume replicas... I've just finished my own take on the Alice in Wonderland 'Madhatter' hat which is available now in our Etsy store!!

Tell us a little bit about yourself?
Well... I'm a 32 year old Capricorn! I have a huge collection of hats both vintage and handmade. I live in a little coastal town in Fife, Scotland with my fiance Alan and our half Siamese cat Mowgli. we're expecting our first child (a little girl) in July 2010! And when I'm not making hats I have a 'real life job', I'm a nurse!

Do you like to travel where your favorite place youve ever been?
I LOVE to travel... Its so hard for my to choose my favourite place I've been to. I've been lucky enough to travel to Pittsburgh PA, Finand, Denmark and Paris, France to name a few of my favourites. But I think actually my favourite place is not too far from home... Glastonbury in Somerset. Its a very magical place, with lots of amazing memories for me and my fiance!

If you could have dinner with any 3 people dead or alive who would they be and why?
Fantastic question!! Well... I'd definitely have to include Marylin Monroe, she was an amazing style icon and I'd love to ask her exactly how she died! Then there would have to be Vivienne Westwood. I'm a huge fan of her designs! And finally... It'd be Dita Von Tease... she's just amazing!

You can also find her on etsy here .

I got this adorable cherry fascinator but of course my camera is dead so I'll have to post pics wearing it when it charges and stops raining outside

I love this hat don't you so beautiful!
