Today I Love…..Book Bags!!

9 May

You may like to call them novel bags…..and I think they are awesomely novel!

 Who wants to look fashionable and smart all at the same time??!!

 Yep I do – what about you??

 My fashion radar has recently found lovely little handbags and clutches that actually look like real books when you carry them under your arm! Somebody smart is onto something here……

My recommendation is you get a title that you have actually read……

Otherwise if you happen to be approached with questions about the ‘book’ you are carrying – you should be prepared to RUN….and quickly so you don’t have to try and answer questions on a fabulous topic that you have absolutely no idea about!

Get yours here:

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.

If you miss out on the giveaway, you can purchase one of these rings by contacting me through the shop on facebook for only $12 plus postage here.

To enter the giveaway:

  1. Follow @jstforumelb on twitter.
  2. Simply tweet “I just entered to win a funky little Movember Moustache Ring!  Just follow @jstforumelb and retweet.  http://wp.me/pU9S6-MR”
  3. Each tweet counts as one entry
  4. You can get extra entries by leaving a comment on this post (with your email address) or by subscribing to my blog (on the right hand side)

Competition starts when this post is published and is open to Australian residents only.

Competition ends at 9pm AEST Tuesday 22nd November, 2011.

Winner will be announced via twitter/email/direct message and published Wednesday 23rd on this blog home page.

You can donate to the Movember cause here.

In the meantime, check these out!!

Today I Love……A Real Aussie Meal Deal…….

24 Aug

A real Aussie Meal….

Sorry, I got distracted looking up “Aussie”

Hello!! It’s been a while, I know – Apologies!

Still here, still kicking; did some blog tweaks tonite….some of you may even notice a difference (*prays and hopes*) – my links are on it now!

Pinterest? DO.NOT.EVEN.GO.THERE.

With the complete and absolute awesomeness of this website – even more and more and more beautiful stunning pictures of precious lovely products and ideas for me to look at every single day! Brilliant, I say! Bloody Brilliant!

Ah, this is apparently a monkey…..cute! 🙂

Anyhoo……back to the topic………Aussie? Oi!

“Aussie, aussie, aussie! Oi, oi, oi!!”

I am that Australian that I actually OWN a badge that says Oi!

WITH the punctuation and everything…..I’ll try and find it if you want me to….

When I was a child, I collected badges….I passed most of them on to my (other) little cousin as he also does the same thing (!) but kept the special ones that could not ever be replaced for me…..

 Damn….I’ve done it again! BACK to the TOPIC Catrina….

Note to you and me: I’d be completely stuffed if I had a word limit on my blog!

 Lately….we’ve been eating a lot of chicken….I like chicken….

BUT the big man….is obviously a BIG man and big men need the……..MEAT!

Well, apparently they do, and this one does as well…..

I’ve been even more turned off lately by reading (and hearing) about the bowel cancer levels in meat eaters and problems later in life that people suffer when they eat a lot of (red) meat. Skinny Bitch? Do you know what I am talking about???!!?? Well, you should! Look it up!!

 The big man says, I’m sick of chicken! Oh, OK, let me see what I can do about that my gorgeous sweet ‘sun and stars’….(see: Game of Thrones reference!)

 Tonight I went to the shops; had a look at the meat in the butcher and went to Coles…..I don’t think I need to explain much further when I tell you I went back to the butcher…..check this out for a gorgeous slab of true blue aussie beef!!!

Served with crunchy chips, thick onion gravy and a dirty fried egg = GOLD on a plate!!!

YUM!! Nite, nite now……xxx

Today I love….rocking my lunch!!!

17 Jul

So much to blog about….soooo little time….

I know you all find it as hard as me to think up new and exciting food to take to work for lunch…because when I look for ‘work lunch ideas’ on the internet – the results are a sorry state of affairs!

So we have the standard sandwich press and microwave at work- would be nice if we had a toaster as well because raisin toast is seriously the best thing for work breakfasts – second close is porridge, but that’s all another story now; be patient my pretties!

I’ve been through the can of soup and a roll, the leftovers from home, the fresh and the toasted sandwiches, tuna/baked beans in a can and I AM OVER THEM ALL!!!

I wish I had the time and the energy to make my lunch look like this every damn day! How these mothers have the time or the skill to do this is ‘Top Secret” though……

They make it sound so easy!

Today’s “detective themed” lunch includes:  roast beef, white american cheese sandwich, watermelon slices, almonds, snap peas, celery & peanut butter

OK, what about this then?

Today’s lunch includes: ham/cheese sandwich, blueberries/raspberries, cucumbers, almonds, Trader Joe’s Ginger Snaps

How long do you think this actually takes to prepare?

Stuff that, I say……

Here is my top 10 ‘different’ work lunches:

  1. Quesadilla – a tortilla or flat bread, refried beans from the can, cheese and either bottled or home made salsa (from last nights dinner = easy, peasy!). You can whack some salad on there too after cooking if you feel like being a rabbit.

  2. Pizzaola toastie – sliced bread, cheese, fresh sliced tomato and green capsicum strips – salt and pepper is a must on this one people!

  3. Felafels – these keep so well in the freezer! Make them yourself or get them from your best local kebab joint. Wrap a few in a tortilla or flat bread, heat it up a little in the micro and whack some lettuce and sweet chilli sauce on that deliciousness!

  4. Baked potatoes – do them the night before – in the micro if you are not cooking them for your dinner and then top them with BUTTER, cheese, tomato, maybe some sliced ham or whatever you feel – and you will have a meal!

  5. Rice paper rolls – so easy to keep in the cupboard and easy to wrap with the leftover vegies and meat from your dinner. Or keep a bag of frozen vegies in the freezer and add some 2 minute noodles to those babies and you have a lovely rice paper lunch! Add some soy and chilli sauce in some little plastic containers and you will be rocking your lunch a a la bento-ish as much as we human people possibly can!

  6. A plain and simple ole egg – I have one of those groovy auto egg boilers – get up in the morning – whack the egg in with the amount of water required – shower and by the time you are done, so is you egg! Note: you may need to run for the buzzer if you spend too much time under that water but then that will teach you a lesson as well! What do I do with the egg you say? Well, if you are well trained, you will already your work staples (see list below) so you defrost some bread, whack it on some crackers with some other condiments and a la we have lunch!

  7. OK, I’m reverting to a staple for this one but I love it – sliced bread, topped with BBQ flavour baked beans and cheese – cooked between the sandwich press – you will feel like you are glamping at work!

  8. Kind of a staple here – tuna patties – so easy to make with your leftover mashed potato from dinner – and they freeze very well – so I always have some on hand ready to go to work with me!

  9. Salad – good for a hot day when it’s too hot to even care about food – I go to the shop on the way to work and grab a lettuce, carrot and some assorted greens, cucumber and maybe a mushie or two as well. Salad dressing should be in your fridge at work already. (see list below) .

  10. Home made soups – always freeze well and are ten times better than the canned ones and we all know that! My recipe for cauliflower soup will follow if you be nice now biatches…….

Here is my staples list for your work food cupboard – here’s hoping you can find a stash somewhere like me!

  1. Mustard – multi-purpose – whatever floats your boat

  2. Salad dressing – as above

  3. Cream cheese – jar or block or as above

  4. Red onion – I keep mine in a little onion keeper – very good and highly recommended! Lasts for 3-4 days for me.

  5. Fresh tomatoes

  6. Cheese – sliced, block or as above – whatever floats your boat

  7. Crackers

  8. Bread in the freezer

  9. Chocolate

  10. Chewing gum

  11. Sweet chilli sauce

  12. Soy sauce

  13. Porridge and/or cereal

  14. Canned soups/cup-a-soups

  15. Salt and Pepper

  16. Herbal Teas

  17. Freshly ground coffee

  18. Vegemite

  19. Nuts

  20. Nut slice – this is awesome – more details to follow!

Looking at that, it seems a pretty big list, but most of it will fit in your drawer at work (hopefully!) and in one shelf of the fridge – so that’s fair isn’t it??? The boys have their beer in my fridge….so I have my staples as well!

OK, phew I’m done – it’s really hard isn’t it???

Hit me with your ORIGINAL tips for easy and different work lunches……

Today I love….Butter, butter, butter…oi, oi, oi!!!

12 Jun

Creamy yellow butter….

What can possibly be better than having some beeeeauuuutiful butter on a cold winters day on a crusty fresh slice of bread?

Or….at night time on creamy mashed potatoes…..

Or….for Breakfast on hot pancakes….

Or….some garlic butter?

Everybody say mmm, mmm, mmmmmmm……

So, here it is…..

YES, You CAN Make your OWN Butter!

I can’t believe it’s……..BUTTER!!!

Sorry had to put that one in…..

I use my Sunbeam food processor with the whisk attachment….no problems there at all….

I use 600ml thickened cream…..

Whack the cream in the bowl and add a pinch of salt….

Turn it on….I did mine on 1 the whole time and it only took about 5-7 minutes….you start lookin’ like this….

Then after a bit you’ll get it lookin’ like this….

When it starts to go splatter like this…..

Pour it all out into a strainer with a bowl, yes a bowl underneath to catch your lovely fresh Buttermilk…and then….you need to squeeze allllll the milk outta that butter baby!!!

“Je te plumerai la”

Whack that butter in a lovely pretty little ceramic dish or you could go old-fashioned style with some baking paper; roll it up and tie off the ends….

Look at that beeeeauuuutiful Buttermilk…..

I didn’t realise how easy it was….and I didn’t realise a lot of people don’t know this as well….what other things do you know of that seem really hard to make but turn out not so bad? I have a few up my sleeve for you…..

But wait, there’s more – Deep Fried Butter…. 🙂

Today I Love….Hot Potato Martini….

25 Feb

I’m back – No, I’m serious – I believe I’ve found that mojo thingy now….yes, you read it correctly people….

Oh and hey, google this topic and this post is pretty much all you will find!! Anyhoo….

Yummy, yummy in my tummy!

Baked potatoes that is…I believe I have spoken about my beloved Hasselback potatoes as well?? They are seriously and wonderfully so easy to make….

I think I really should have made a tag called “Baked Potatoes” for my blog like my “Mexican” tag cos I just L.O.V.E them soooo much!!

And oh decadence and oh sophistication, here I come!

With my big, fat, hot and steaming……Baked Potato!!!

Whoever thought of this should get a medal or a gold star or one of those awesome little smiley stamps that everyone loves and always uses now! 🙂

My fave Baked Potato topping is…..a whole lotta garlicky butter….and it’s gotta be real butter, sorry folks….topped off with some crispy, crunchy bacon, melted cheese (lots of that!), a little bit of coleslaw and some spring onions and sour cream to garnish…yeah I’m pretty boring and regular with my baked potatoes – what’s your fave recipe for them??? xxx

Note: I will update the toppings on this soon…..as stated previously I cannot even find where I found this little beauty!! So far I know we have bacon, sour cream and….. ;0

You’ll be saying that too after you see these little beauties!!

Go on!

 

The two best things ever in this world – shoes and chocolate….are now combined!!! Wish I had thought of this idea….if only they would ship to me down under!

Here are just a few of their designs:

I love this from their site as well:

We’ve heard people like to fill their chocolate shoes with champagne, drink the champagne from the shoe, then eat the shoe. Sounds good to us”

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….A $1000 Ice Cream Sundae

28 Sep

You wouldn’t read about it…..I was telling my Mr. Big just the other night about this lovely little (well HUGE actually) concoction and ta da!!

One of my top 100 fave celebs (another post on the way about this folks!) a la Kandee Johnson went to the restaurant that serves this obscene dish!!!

Golden Opulence sundae

$1,000

First dates looking to impress or sweet-sixteens in search of something special strike gold, quite literally, at Serendipity 3, the legendary New York City eatery where celebs are often spotted. The restaurant’s golden opulence sundae is covered in 23-carat edible gold leaf and is also rich in flavor thanks to Tahitian vanilla ice cream infused with Madagascar vanilla beans and chunks of rare Chuao chocolate from Venezuela.

In lieu of Hershey’s syrup and a maraschino cherry, this sundae is drizzled with one of the world’s most expensive chocolates, from Amedei Porcelana, and then adorned with candied fruits, gold covered almonds, chocolate truffles and marzipan cherries.

The dish also features a dollop of sweet Grande Passion caviar served with a mother of pearl spoon and a gilded sugar flower. The whole shebang looks as good as it tastes, served in a Baccarat crystal goblet (yours to keep) with an 18-carat gold spoon (not included).

Today I love….Message Burger….

23 Sep

Hello there!! How special am I?

I know I look very tasty and you really want to gobble me up but you just can’t eat me!

See???

Well, you can try…but you won’t get very far! I want one of these sets badly!

So I can give them to the kids to play with and watch the joy on their faces!

Yeah, right – hang on….I want some joy tooooooo!!!

message burger – shop – upon a fold

“Who said fast food isn’t good for you? We’ll have two burgers with the lot, thanks! Good enough to eat, this message burger comes with 24 cards – all in the form of yummy burger fillings! There are fried eggs, two types of cheese, bacon, beef patties, lettuce, buns, pickles and more. You’ll have enough ingredients to make two burgers and there is even a die-cut burger box for storing away all your fillings. This is such a fun gift to give someone… especially if the way to their heart is through their stomach. Each piece comes ready to pop-out and you can use them to write messages on or create your very own piece of burger art. Made in Japan, this kit measures 27cm x 24cm and when completed 9.5cm x 11cm x 4cm. Hungry?”

I bloody well am now!!!

No…I really just want and NEED to play with these!!!

Aaaarrrgghhhh…..

Today I love….Ultra Loop Bootie

Hey there baby!

Carbon fibre shoes…beat that!!!

Am I just simply stunning or what???

Ultra Loop Bootie
Charcoal + Champagne

The Ultra Loop Bootie is a revolutionary shoe silhouette formed by dramatically molding ultra lightweight and ultra strong carbon fiber to enable an extreme heel construction. The design is based on a simple concept of penetration: a floating foot-bed slips through a sexy loop, functioning as both heel and upper.

Heel Height – 130mm/5.1″

Ultra Loop Bootie Charcoal + Champagne

And from the master himself, courtesy of ELLE:

“ELLE:  Have you ever walked around in your heels to make sure they’re comfortable?”

“I tried a size 43 Sharpei boots that we made especially for a friend. I think without any high heel experience anyone suffers. To ensure the comfort of our shoes we have a series of size 38 fitting models, including my wife.”

From here

Awesome, hey?

THIS is what I’m talkin’ ’bout Willis…..

Catrina’s Greek Balls

So go and get yourself about 500g lamb mince –

Safeway is normally the place to find it but we found it at Coles tonight as well!

Then mix it up in a bowl with:

1/2 diced onion

Fresh coriander seeds – ground…or coriander powder

Oregano to taste

1 Egg

2 Tbsp Breadcrumbs

2 tsp crushed garlic

Diced fresh parsley (from your garden – of course!)

Make the mix up and shape it into lovely little balls…..about 3cm big

Fry them up till they are hot and toasty and then serve the lovely balls on top of a fresh pita bread with Tabouli, sliced onion, tomato and lettuce as well if you like – don’t forget the yogurt/cucumber/garlic dip = Tzatziki!!

Then….roll it up and go, go, go for your Greek Balls!!!
