Updates + Mimi and Fifi

21 Jun


MimiWell. Long time no see, right? I feel a bit bad about leaving all of you lovely readers for so long. The end of the school year has been crazy busy for me, and I haven’t had a lot of time to blog. :( To help fill you in on past and upcoming events, I have compiled a purple-panda-approved list! Enjoy…

  • Mimi got a new buddy named Fifi… (See below)
  • I auditioned, went to call-backs, and got cast in my school’s production of Once on this Island. Yay!
  • Zig-Zag the Zebra (Mimi’s traveling buddy) went to Turkey. Pictures coming soon, not to worry. :)
  • I just went to see Inside Out, which was super adorable, and therefore deserved to be on the list.
  • Feeling like you need an extra dose of purple panda-ness? Go check out my recent posts on Doll Mag, the online magazine devoted to dolls that I write with my amazing sister Bella, (who blogs here).

Speaking of Mimi’s new friend, I recently received a very cute Disney Marie Tsum Tsum as a gift from my wonderful mom, who I have named Fifi. After meeting her tiny look-alike, Mimi immediately knew that she had found a new friend! I couldn’t wait to take a few pictures of the two cuties together – check them out below!

Mimi’s Super Bowl Adventure, Part 4 – A Photo Story

1 Feb


Happy Super Bowl Sunday, my lovely readers! I’m not a big football fan myself, (I’m watching Downton Abbey as I write this post. :) ) but I always look forward to Mimi’s Superbowl Adventure photo story every year. (You can read the last three years’ posts here, here, and here.) And so, without further ado, I’ll hand it over to everyone’s favorite kitty, Mimi!

Mimi's PlanHello everyone! It’s moi, Mimi! As I do every February, I went on an epic Super Bowl adventure with my best friend Lavender, and I’m here to tell you all about it! Enjoy!

“Ooh! It’s Super Bowl Sunday! Better call Lavender,” I said this morning, happily jumping into my favorite chair.

Mimi Talks with Lavender“Hey Mimi, what’s up?” My best friend Lavender greeted me cheerfully when she walked into the room a few minutes later. “I have a brilliant idea!” I answered back. Lavender groaned. “It’s Super Bowl Sunday, isn’t it?” I nodded and made room for her on the chair. “And you know what everyone’s favorite part of the Super Bowl is? The commercials! And this year, we’re going to star in them with all our friends! Onward!”

Take 1“Oreo and Juliet’s Baked Goods Commercial: Take 1!” Princess Minnie called out in the film studio when we arrived. “Look it’s Juliet!” I said happily. My pink elephant friend gave us a small smile and wave before turing towards the camera.

Juliet and Cupcake“Oreo and Juliet’s Baked Goods has all sorts of yummy treats! They’re perfect for Valentine’s Day, parties, or any time you’re craving a bit of chocolate. Your sweet tooth is sure to be-“

Mimi Crashes 1 “Hi Juliet!” I burst in. “Hi Mimi!” She answered, tilting her head back so she could see me. “How’s it going?” “Great!” I answered, “See you at next week’s art class!”

Lavender Says Hi “Super Bowl adventure?” Juliet asked my buddy Lavender. She nodded before running off to join moi. “Great cupcakes Juliet!”

Minnie 2“Purple Panda Books Commercial: Take 2!” Princess Minnie called out in the next film studio when we arrived. “HI ELSIE!” I waved ecstatically at my sparkly friend. She gave me a wink before beginning her commercial monologue.

Elsie“Do you love reading? How about purple? How about pandas? If you do, Purple Panda Books is just the store for you! Come to our lovely store and discover shelves filled with loads of purple books and read to your heart’s content. You’ll be falling head over heels for these stories in no-“

Mimi Crashes 2“Hi Elsie! Nice work! Can I borrow one of these books?” I asked my awesome friend. “Sure Mimi! I just have to do one more take.” I shrugged, “That’s cool! I’ll see you at tomorrow’s book club meeting!”

Lavender Explains“Is this one of those Super Bowl adventures you told me about earlier?” Elsie asked Lavender, who nodded. “Awesome!” Elsie added.

Minnie Take Three“Dot-lightful Clothing Commercial: Take 4!” Princess Minnie called out in the third film studio when we arrived. “There’s Dottie!” I told Lavender, dragging her towards the set.

Dottie“Dot-lightful Clothing sells apparel with fun colors and prints that are sure to brighten up your day. Our styles can be purchased in one of our three locations across the-“

Mimi Crashes 3“Hi Mimi!” Dottie said without even taking her eyes of the camera. “Hows the Super Bowl adventure going?” “Fabulous! Thanks for letting me be in one of your commercial takes. See you at the Sparkle Lovers Convention on Tuesday!”

Lavender Explains“Oh. You were expecting us?” Lavender asked Dottie.

Mimi Begins Planning “So. What should we do next year?” I asked once we were back in my fabulously pink bedroom.

The End :)

Have a great night,




Mimi Goes to Legoland-A Photo Story

7 Aug


Mimi is back, and as fabulous as ever! When my mom, sister, and I went to the newly opened Legoland Discovery Center, Mimi couldn’t help but make an appearance. She had lots of fun taking photos and posing, (especially with the giant giraffe!) so I’ll let her take over for now…

Mimi and the Giant GiraffeHi everyone! It’s your favorite kitten, me, Mimi! I took some pretty awesome pictures at the Legoland Discvoery Center, so let’s get started right away. See, there’s me and the Lego Giraffe!!!! I look so cute and tiny in that plant down there, don’t I? :) I’ll have to ask that giraffe about how she does her lashes though, because those are fantastic.

Normal EntrySo then, after a bit more waiting, we finally headed inside the Lego center and stood in some very loooooong lines. It was so crowded that I told Lulu to put me in her bag and fend for us both through the lines…but not before I got this picture of the indoor entry way into the main rooms…wait! This is not the entry I wanted for this post.

Mimi's EntryAww, this is much better.

Boston Room 1The first of the main rooms we entered was the model Boston made entirely out of Legos, which was my favorite part. I love this display with the little stores and the boat, (which was floating in actual water.) The details were amazing!

Mini Swan BoatsOoh, look! Little swan boats! They’re the size of me! (I could be a Lego world giant…hmmm…) Lulu was also recently at the actual park this one is modeling, and she says that it’s really nice…but there’s no giant “Build and Test” packet in the bottom of the real water…she thinks.

Mini FenwayYay! Mini Fenway Park! I can almost touch all the bases at once with my paws! This was really cute and detailed, and I really liked the mini baseball game you can play, even if I could never actually get the ball to touch my “bat”…on second thought, I don’t like the game as much after all. Hmpf.

NightimeAnd then, BOOM! Everything turns to night without warning, (actually there’s a big bell noise before it happens, but my way sounds much cooler.) The buildings light up and fake fireworks start to explode all around us in a super cool and ultimately awesome moment!!!!

Bridge Close-upHere’s a close-up of the bridge in all it’s shiny, triangular glory. Yeah. That’s all I really have to say about this one. Oh well.

Night #3Before we head off into the next area, here’s one last night-time picture! I love the way everything changes when the lights turn on and the walls go black. (Although it’s very hard to pose for pictures in…partly because you can never see me…)

Ice Cream The next room was a series of Lego-themed stations with lots of crowded people filling it, but let’s focus on what the important things in there are: the giant ice cream sundae. Since it was already melting I was able to grab a few drops, but they tasted a bit plastic-y. Eck!

EndingThat’s all I have for you tonight my loyal Mimi-lovers readers. I’ll be back soon with some more of my adventures! :)

Have an awesome rest of your week,

Lulu and Mimi

Mimi In Hutch!

7 Jun


So sorry for not posting lately, but I have lots of fun posts coming up! Today I just wanted to do a quick post starring everyone’s favorite kitten, Mimi! This one has an extra special surprise in it, but I’ll let Mimi explain… (Apologies for the quality of the first few photos–they were taken during the evening when the lighting wasn’t very good!)

Bookstore 1Hi everyone, it’s Mimi! On Wednesday evening, Lulu took me to this bookstore called the Blue Bunny where they were having a publication party for Hutch magazine. When Lulu had me pose with her copy of my magazine, I was so surprised to see her artwork on the cover!

Bookstore 2I got a chance to explore the bookstore and have Lulu take pictures of me! Here I am posing with the adorable bunny! Aren’t we so cute?

Bookstore 3Ooh, this is my favorite one! Here I am riding the coolest tiara wearing, hula dancing lamb ever!

Mimi and HutchYesterday I got a chance to look through the whole thing: “Oh my gosh! There is a monkey. This is awesome!” I squealed as I looked at the cover.

Article 1And then, the very best part came. When I was flipping through pages, I discovered a brand new photo story about me and my eco-spa right there on page 24. “This is so cool!” I flopped down so I could read my latest adventure.

Article 2“I really have to see how this ends!” :)

Have an awesome weekend,

Lulu and Mimi :)

P.S. I’m going to be doing some work on the blog design this weekend, so just be aware in case the appearance keeps changing.

Mimi’s Easter Egg Hunt-A Photo Story

21 Apr


Happy Easter everyone! I had my annual Easter egg hunt on Friday, and today I went with my family to see Mr. Peabody and Sherman again, (plus I got the Cedar Wood Ever After High Doll! She’s adorable:)) Mimi had a wonderful Easter too, and invited three of her friends over to hunt some eggs…

IMG_3688Mimi’s friends Priscilla the Pig, Quacky the Ladybug, and Rosebud the Bunny were all gathered in her backyard, ready to start their egg hunt. Everyone grabbed their brightly colored baskets and stood together in a line as Mimi announced, “One…two…three!” And the friends sprinted off!

IMG_3693Pastel colored eggs were scattered throughout the sunny yard, and Mimi immediately spotted one sitting on the tree swing. With a tall jump, she grabbed the edge of the turquoise seat, and pulled herself on. “Perfect!” Mimi said happily, adding the blue egg to her daisy-covered basket.

IMG_3699As Mimi hopped off the swing, Priscilla was busy reaching into the long white pipe to grab her next egg. “Almost got it…” She groaned as it rolled away from her grasp. “Got it!”

IMG_3700Rosebud had spotted an egg sitting in the branch of a tall tree, and had hopped her way up to it. With a final little jump, she knocked it right into her overflowing yellow basket.

IMG_3714Almost all the eggs were gone, but Quacky noticed one more nestled in the cracks of stone on Mimi’s patio. “I wonder what’s inside…” Quacky wondered, plopping it in to the silver basket.

IMG_3722And then there was only one egg left…but it was stuck at the top of the fence! Agreeing to share whatever treat was inside, Rosebud gave Mimi a boost so she grab it. After throwing the egg down to Quacky and Rosebud, who were still on the ground, Mimi discovered she couldn’t find a way to get down! “Oh no…”

IMG_3735Luckily, the three others were able to grab a soft pillow from inside that Mimi could fall on, convincing her to jump. Since there were no eggs left, the friends sat down on the grass and began to look through their baskets. Hidden under a chocolate bunny, Mimi noticed an unopened egg with something special inside…

IMG_3738A hot pink collar with a charm of herself on it! “This has been an extra awesome Easter!” She declared, trying on her new piece of jewelry.

How was your Easter?

Mimi and the Scavenger Hunt-A Photo Story

7 Apr


It’s springtime! There have been some warmer days lately, and there was plenty of sunshine this weekend, so to celebrate I decided to do a Mimi photo story! This week, Mimi and her friends went on a scavenger hunt…


IMG_2972“Is everyone with their teams?” Mimi asked when they ensembles on the grass. The six friends had split up into two teams of three: The Pink Bows with Mimi, Willow the Lamb, and Harold the Unicorn, and the Springtime Snuggles with Daisy Lou, Emma, and Sir Pugs A Lot. “Okay!” Mimi announced, ready to read the rules a loud. “There are five locations with clues and prizes! There are two clues at each spot, so only take the one for your team. Whoever gets to the final destination first wins!”

IMG_2988With that they all scrambled off to read the first clue with their teams. “Here’s the clue” Mimi handed a folded piece of paper to Willow, who read aloud. “You’ll find the next clue where the crown on the frog’s head sits.” The three stood there puzzled for a moment until Harold called out, “The frog prince garden statue!”

IMG_2996Daisy Lou’s team was already there, and Sir Pugs A Lot had grabbed one of the two papers hidden beneath the metal crown. “It says that the next clue is in the empty pit–what pit?” He wondered, as his teammates shrugged and started looking around.

IMG_2998Mimi’s team had worked out the clue and where sitting on top of the fire pit…well two of them. “Did you find it yet?” Mimi called down to Harold, who was searching the ground. “Uh-huh!” He yelled back, “It reads, ‘Your next clue is hidden among the grapes.” Mimi and Willow started pacing back and forth. “Umm, guys? How am I going to get back up?” Harold shouted.

IMG_3000Emma had figured out the clue was hidden in the grape-vine, but since there were no grapes yet, the clue was tucked between two high branches. The three started climbing loose vines in order to reach their paper. “Almost got it!” Emma exclaimed, reaching her hove out. “It says, “Climb the fence to spot the final clue…”

IMG_3005Minutes later, everyone was climbing the old fence in order to reach the final clue, which was in the middle of a bare bush. Harold the Unicorn was able to grab one of the papers, but the other flew flying away in the wind. “Oh no!” Mimi said, “Why don’t you just read it out loud, and then we’ll race to the prize!” Everybody agreed, so Harold opened the paper. “The prize is under the shower of flowers,” it read.

IMG_3019Suddenly it was a speeding foot race to the old watering can that had flowers in the top. Mimi managed to arrive first, and still breathing heavily, she was greeted with a full platter of delicious looking cupcakes. “Congrats!” The sign read, “You found the prize, and don’t forget to share.” Mimi nodded, and announced “Perfect!”

IMG_3015So the six friends spent the rest of the afternoon enjoying their yummy sweets and playing in the bright sun shine!

Happy Spring!

Mimi’s Super Bowl Adventure, Part 3-A Photo Story

2 Feb


As some of you know, every year, I do a Super Bowl themed photo story with Mimi, (you can read the first two here and here,) and Mimi started the tradition of telling them herself last year, so here’s Mimi’s Superbowl Adventure #3 told by Mimi herself…IMG_1352Hello everyone! it’s your favorite cat, me, Mimi! Anyways, last week I was sitting in my favorite chair enjoying a delicious lunch I made for myself, (but that’s a totally different photo story) when the phone started ringing and interrupting my relaxation. (Sigh…)

IMG_1354So I got up from my chair and went to answer the phone, and was surprised to find out that it was one of the Minnie’s, (although I’m not one hundred percent sure which) an announcer at the Supreme Bowl (the stuffed animal equivalent of the Super Bowl.) Our conversation went a little something like this:

“Hello?” “Is this Mimi, the same Mimi that accidentally broke into the Supreme Bowl football field last year?” “Yep!” I nodded my head as I answered. “Alright then, apparently everyone was impressed by you not knowingly winning the Supreme Bowl, and they want you to perform at the half time show.” “Really?!” I exclaimed before accidentally dropping the phone.

IMG_1357“This is awesome!” I said as I jumped up and down, “I wonder if Lavender wants to do it too…” I ran out the door to go find my friend.

IMG_1359After I told Lavender about the half-time show, she couldn’t wait to do it with me, so we went back to my room to brainstorm ideas of what we should perform. “I could accidentally pass by everyone in hide-and-go-seek like before!” I suggested, but Lavender immediately shook her head. “Ooh! Or I could give everyone hair styles like that time when I opened up my own salon!” I still think it was a brilliant idea, but Lavender didn’t. “There’s way too many people, and I don’t think they want a hair style from you…no offense.” I shrugged, and stroked my chin, hoping it would give me a good idea, (it didn’t.) “Oh! I know!” Lavender said suddenly, “Remember when we pretended to be trapeze artists in your backyard? Let’s do that again!”

IMG_1364Since we finally had an idea, Lavender and I were going to go outside to practice, but I had to come back to grab my delicious smoothie! As I was running back, I came up with an idea, “Hey Lavender we should have matching outfits!”

IMG_1371So, at the Supreme Bowl, the game was getting intense…but no one cares about that because it was time for everyone to see how amazing our trapeze act is! “The score is tied, but for now we’ll be taking a break to watch the half time show…starring that cat that lost all of her popcorn on the field last year and her purple dog friend!” French Minnie announced into her microphone. “Take it away Mimi and Lavender!” Princess Minnie added.

IMG_1381We had exactly a minute before we had to start our awesome act. “Okay Lavender, let’s do this!” I encouraged her. “I’m a bit nervous…do you think we used too much pink in our costumes?” “Uh…duh, there is no thing as too much pink! Anyways, we have to get going!”

IMG_1389The half-time show started off with Lavender flying in on her harness. the crowed cheered and looked in awe. She swished through the air, performing tricks and flips with ease.

IMG_1392And then I came in! I was holding onto the string-thingie upside down! How cool is that!? I mean, I may have been screaming my head off at the time, but it was pretty cool!

IMG_1395So after a few more spins, tricks, flips, and a bit-of almost falling, the half-time show came to an end. When we did our final trick, the crowd applauded wildly!

IMG_1400Together, Lavender and I flipped down and gave each other a hug:) The End!

I hope you enjoyed Mimi’s latest adventure!

Lulu and Mimi:)
