We're 1 year old!! GIVEAWAY TIME! (CLOSED)

HOLY COW! I can't believe that it's already been a year since I'm Catching Fireflies started! It feels like it was just yesterday when I began blogging. Time flies really fast when you're having fun!

I've prettified the layout to celebrate the occasion. It's wider now, so yay for bigger photos! And since I post about several different topics on this blog, there's also a handy navigation bar at the top now so you can keep track of the tags you like. I hope you like the change!

Aside from the shiny new layout, I would like to thank all of you lovely readers by hosting my first ever GIVEAWAY! I've decided to give away THREE items – one BJD item, one fashion item and one art item – since BJDs, fashion and art is what I'm Catching Fireflies is all about.

So just what exactly are up for grabs?

2nd Set of Pop! Vinyl Figures by Funko for Game of Thrones

As the third season of Game of Thrones draws nearer, Funko has released a new set of Pop! Vinyls for the popular fantasy TV series. This time, the set features Arya Stark, Jaime and Cersei Lannister, Jon Snow, Robb Stark and Renly Baratheon.
Seems to me like they have improved on the designs of this set from the previous one. I really like the details on Jaime's armor and on Robb and Jon's clothes! Renly looks fabulous with his flamboyant antler crown, haha! Unfortunately, the same can't be said about Arya and Cersei, especially since Cersei has more intricate costumes. Granted, Arya was plain and ragged the whole time in season 2, but her costume had more detail than just pinstripes.

Still, the set is cute enough for me to collect them all! It's gonna cost a pretty penny though. Ah, the things I do for love!

Scarf it up!

I love scarves and I cannot lie. Every time I see a scarf display in a shop, I gravitate towards it. The thing I love about scarves is how they give an outfit that extra oomph, even if you're just wearing jeans and a tee. It's perfect for days when you're too lazy to dress up. I only own a few because the weather here isn't really scarf-friendly, but if I lived in a place with a cooler climate, I would probably wear a scarf everyday! XD

Here are some scarves from different online shops that I think are really cute!

1. Galaxy Print Scarf, Romwe; 2. Frayed Ombré Scarf, Forever21; 3. Crinkled Scarf with Lace Trim, H&M;
4. Cotton Scarf with Crochet Trim, IKOU TSCHÜSS; 5. Lillia Scarf, Amrita Singh; 6. Lettuce Love Love Aztec Scarf, David Jones

So, which one is your favorite?

Prime Lens Photospam

After much waffling about what to ask for as a gift from my parents last Christmas, I decided to ask for new lens for the camera I use (Camera's not mine. Technically my dad's lol). I went for a Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II lens. It's perfect for low-light indoor photography, which is exactly what I do with my dolls.

Here are some test shots of my new lens. Forgive the grainy photos; I had to pump up the ISO because it was so dark and rainy when I took these. Anyway, I freaking love my new lens, especially the very shallow depth of field that f/1.8 gives!
