Today I Love….A Movember Giveaway!

7 Nov

Movember is something we do here in Australia to support men’s charities – if you are from overseas, this may seem a little strange to you!

During November each year, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on thousands of men’s faces in Australia and around the world. The aim of which is to raise vital funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer and depression in men.

On Movember 1st, guys register at Movember.com with a clean-shaven face and then for the rest of the month, these selfless and generous men, known as Mo Bros, groom, trim and wax their way into the annals of fine moustachery. Supported by the women in their lives, Mo Sistas, Movember Mo Bros raise funds by seeking out sponsorship for their Mo growing efforts.

Mo Bros effectively become walking, talking billboards for the 30 days of November and through their actions and words raise awareness by prompting private and public conversation around the often ignored issue of men’s health.

At the end of the month, Mo Bros and their female supporters (known as Mo Sistas) celebrate their gallantry and valor by either throwing their own Movember party or attending one of the infamous Gala Partés held around the world by Movember, for Movember.

So, to celebrate and promote this wonderful cause, we will have a twitter based giveaway for this lovely little double finger Moustache Ring from my shop, Just For You Jewels.

Today I love……Inga

12 May

Oh she is so pretty! So useful, she surprises me every single day with her skills! She goes here, she goes there….she goes anywhere!!!

Well….hate me if you must….but I am now the proud owner of a la……iPad!

No, I am not a rich person by any means or I would own everything that I speak of on this blog! I bought Inga (iPad 1) on the day that the iPad 2 was released…which in my book is pretty savvy stuff….I don’t own an iPhone but of course I would like to have one…..

So…..she arrived….it wasn’t hard for me to work out how to use and abuse her…..I’m not a computer nerd but I’m not a complete moron either….then the apps started flowing….this little genius is a bloody godsend for the kiddies! They LOVE LOVE LOVE it! It reads them stories, it educates them and teaches them to spell, draw, count and even a bit of hand/eye and some logic thrown in there as well for them! I HAD to have Monopoly – yes, I paid for it but it has been worth every bloody cent – Mr. Big and I play it and the pool game a lot now. Which is nice….no more sitting in front of the computer or lounged on the couch engrossed in the telly…now we play together! Arguing and cheating is also involved but that is another story altogether!

Speaking of Mr. Big, he just interrupted the typing of this post by knocking over my antique side table and scaring the living bejesus out of me! Damn he is Big! Anyhoo, the first thing I did with Inga was learn how to convert my vids so that I could send them to iTunes and then sync them over to her. So that took a while. Well, not too long. Maybe I don’t give myself enough credit sometimes…..I think that sometimes….

So Mr. Big came home and there I was quite happy in my own hot bubble bath watching National Velvet with Inga leant on the wire bath storage next to the bath. Mr. Big took one look at Inga, after I told him not to come too much closer and spill everything everywhere and backed the hell outta there quick smart! So I did move her a little further away from said bathtub. I kind of had a vision of Inga falling into the bath tub with me and really did not want to end up as the first iPad death statistic in a bath.

After that, Inga’s uses became more and more known to me. She has taught me that I cannot grow any sort of plant, whether it be living or in a game. Thanks for that. I can also keep up to date on the networks and news and listen to my tunes whilst I am cooking dinner. I can take her to bed and read a book. It took a while to find a free book that I wanted to read, but I highly recommend the princess and the penis for your first freebie 🙂 Then I have my daily games….which for me I really need right now….gas tycoon rocks and the plants were another one but I’ve given up on that quest.

If you are considering purchasing an iPad I highly recommend it…I no longer have to pack up my laptop and all the cords and lug it around – I just walk out the door with this little beauty! It is of course easier to type on a normal keyboard, like I am doing now. This post may have taken a lot longer than the 10 mins it has so far taken on the keyboard instead of Inga…

I thought the other day about how exciting our world will be in 100 years time. Well, if it is still here….scary stuff….everybody – iPads away!!! xxxxx

Today I love….CarLashes

20 Apr

Yeah, yeah…I can hear some of you say – what the?? It’s OK I have not gone mad….yet!

Somebody had the dream…..and now somebody has made the dream….it’s Herbie on botox here people……

I love them, and I want some all for me….admittedly they will look soooo much better on my friends’ Mercedes SLK230 but on my Vienta I am sure she will appreciate them and go much faster!

Hahaha good times we live in today that’s my final thought…..great *(&%^$#@#$@ times……

Today I love….Christmas Templates

Today I love….Kawaii

3 Oct

Am I speaking English?

Well maybe not…..Kawaii is……

literally, “loveable” “cute” or “adorable” and has become a prominent aspect of Japanese popular culture, entertainment, clothing, food, toys, personal appearance, behavior, and mannerisms.[1]

I found Kawaii – thanks to Blythe, and my sister-in law’s Footpath travels to overseas lands….

One really cool site I love, love, love checking in on all the time is Spoonflower – last month they had a Kawaii competition for the best Kawaii fabric design! Here it is….

BYE 🙂

For now!!! 🙂

Today I love….Marvelous Melbourne

My home town….Melbourne, Victoria, Australia….

Aussie, Aussie, Aussie!!! Oi, Oi, Oi!!!

Here is a wonderful little short film about olde Melbourne town that I came across – by Chris Costuna….

Melbourne (pronunciation: /ˈmɛlbərn/, locally also [ˈmælbən, -bn̩][3][citation needed]) is the capital and most populous city in the state of Victoria, and also the second most populous city in Australia.[2] The Melbourne City Centre (also known as the “Central Business District” or “CBD”)[4] is the hub of the greater geographical area (or “metropolitan area”) and the Census statistical division—of which “Melbourne” is the common name. As of late 2009, the greater geographical area had an approximate population of 4 million.[1][5] A resident of Melbourne is known as a “Melburnian”.[6]

3 Jul

A classic Disney movie….still good for boys (I think??) and girls these days….

It goes without saying that I loved, loved, loved the movie when I was a child….along with Mum’s homemade fudge (very old NMAA recipe – stay tuned), strawberry mallow mousse (ditto) and Dumbo, Bambi, Lady & The Tramp….oooh and Mummas fish with mashed potato and teaching my little bro how to use the computer (even tho now he is smarter than me with them – oh yeah it’s called computer, not fashion school oopsies)

Anyhoooooo…..this little moment of photography love is inspired by this little munchkin….

I am sure you all think she is just as cute as I do….

So I just couldn’t resist sharing these other lovely gems with you all….enjoy!!!

Old skool….

A modern take….

A realistic take….

A fashionable Snow White….

Snow White in Hell….
