The famous pink boxing gloves

Recently I received THE pink bloxing gloves from Ally of Shybiker.

These gloves have been everywhere man. Used to express various ideas of femininity.

I thought I would have a go at adding my two cents.

This time I thought I'd explore in the Australian National Botanic Gardens with Mr Actor being the photographer.

I wore my most feminine dress, with a more masculine shirt and Bushy's Akubra hat.



Arrived at the gardens.

Little did we know a surprise awaited us.

A note explained that there was an invisible monster on the loose and whoever could draw the gloves out of the stone would have to fight it.
Who will do this daring deed?...

After a short amount of coaching it was into the fray!

With a ...


And a ...

And a ...

The match was on. But oh dear, it soon turned sour as my inexperience told against me.
It was all...


And ...


And even...


But with a mighty heave...
The tables were turned.
It's a knockout!


And not a moment too soon.


Of course afterwards there were press shots to take showing my glamorous side.

After which I could leave with a clear conscience knowing the gardens were safe once again for all!
That was fun!

I was exploring the stronger and the softer sides of femininity in a visual manner.
Thanks so much Ally for allowing me to play and sending the boxing gloves all across the world!
I hope they enjoyed their second visit to Australia.
This took place in the Red Centre section of the gardens where they have recreated the growing conditions of the red centre of Australia.
My dress and shirt were both thrifted.
Til next time, keep on creating!

  20. Hello my lovely!!! I've got to correct you about your comment on my 11th blogiversary! You are certainly NOT one of those rude non-commenting bloggers!!! You have left many lovely comments on my blog. I was referring to those who do not deign to visit me/anyone even ONCE in the 2-3 years I have left them comments. Even though they comment on other people's, even though I am one of the only commenters, even though I leave meaningful comments and mention occasionally that it would be nice if they visited, even if they are unemployed without children!!! Nada, nothing!!!
    And I STILL comment on their blogs. So of course I'm not going to drop a lovely, busy blogging friend such as you!!! xxx
