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.

Today I love….Me! Do you love you??

15 Apr

You know what??

When I am feeling down, a little creative/expressive/extroverted or need inspiration…guess where I go??

My blog! :0

(Listen to Plans by Birds of Tokyo while reading this post – hint, hint)

Yep, cos I always know there will be something there that I need at that time….you know how when you are driving sometimes and that perfect song comes on the radio for that moment in your life? Or like when you open the fridge and straight away you find what you really wanted but didn’t know that you needed? Or when you go to the shops and you find everything that you need in 5 minutes flat and it’s so easy peasy….or when the petrol tank just miraculously keeps on going……

Oh wait, I’m talking about life!

Sometimes it just works out well and awesome….and sometimes it just doesn’t….

I used to be one of those people that thought nothing bad could ever happen to me.

It worked for a while, but then people interfere in your life, you get sick, bad things happen, trusted people let you down and you also let yourself down. I am the sort of person that can pick themselves up and keep going though – a lot of people that I know can’t actually do that. I am determined to make my life better every single day of the life that I have. I hope that I am making little steps towards that aim.

So anyhoo….back to the norm….what pleasures do I have for you today?

Just a few select gems lovely readers…..

Why does no one comment? Don’t be shy! Come and say HI Cat!!!! xx :0

This one is all me….


Today we have sexy gorgeous stunning beautiful to-die-for….Horses!!! Do you love them as much as me? Let me know! xx

Oh, and this……..

R.I.P Liz xx

Happy Easter to you and yours as well!!


Sleep tight, don’t let the bed bugs bite! Mwah darlings!


Just For You….show me what you’ve got!!!

20 Feb

Okey dokey folks….who’s ready for some creative loveliness…..I’m Excited with a capital E! Here we go:

Show me your stunning stuff people!!

I’ve got this for y’all today…..xx

Today I love….The 7 wonders of Replica Jewellery

12 Sep

Thank the lordie* for replica jewellery as there is no way I would have ever gotten my hands on genuine beautiful pieces like these in this lifetime! (#1)

No, it’s not counterfeit folks – it’s replica and I believe it should be advertised as such. I don’t agree with counterfeit as it is misleading the customer. If it was counterfeit it would be sold at the same price as the original brand and also would be an exact copy of the product, marketed and advertised as the actual product, which is a complete lie to the consumer. (#2)

I believe designer goods are overpriced for a start. You need a god-damn personal loan to buy anything in the fashion pages these days. It’s just ridiculous. Rich, large conglomerates just keep getting richer and charging over $1000 for a pair of shoes is not economical to 90% of the population and I know for a fact the cost to make them would have been less than 20% of that! (#3)

I have dreamed and wished to be part of the club and for someone to buy me Tiffany – anything will do! How lame is that? Now I have my replica Tiffany and I am pacified and very satisfied. (#4)

Like the recent Hermes handbag on ebay – if you could afford that, would you really want to buy it – sight unseen on ebay of all places? No, I don’t think so! I have seen the Hermes factory and I know the craftmanship that goes into each and everyone of these bags but I believe that they are simply not worth the price tag!! (#5)

Sure, some people can spot the fake but you have to know what you are looking for and why waste time doing this? Spend time finding the best replica you can for a price you can afford I say!! Who agrees with me? (#6)

Oh, goody look what I found: The 5 most expensive handbags in the world…let’s prove my point right now…..

As the writer of the article says:

“You need one thing when you think about shopping for a designer handbag and that is money.”

Yep, you don’t need to think – you don’t need brains – because guess what? Money can’t buy you brains baby!!! But it can buy you a designer bag?? Woop-de-doo-dah!! I’d rather invest my money to make more or put it into bloody bricks and mortar – at least I’m getting some value for my $ as that is worth somewhere near the price you will pay for it!!! (#7)

The bags above seem to be one-offs or limited editions – this is the sort of luxury bag available to us plebs:

Most Expensive Designer Handbags List

JACKPOT!!! Here we go…..

Australians are real deal on fake designer goods

Bridie Smith
June 22, 2006

AUSTRALIANS are the third most likely to buy fake designer goods because we think the real thing is over-priced, according to an international survey released today.

The online survey by AC Nielsen found only Canadians (37 per cent) and Americans (35 per cent) were more willing than Australians (29 per cent) to buy counterfeit goods and pass them off as the real deal.

“We love a great fake,” AC Nielsen executive director Nicole Torkar said. “People don’t see the value in the real designer brands because the imitation can be hard to spot.”

Ms Torkar said the survey revealed Australians felt designer goods were over-priced (88 per cent) and almost half (48 per cent) said designer brands were not necessarily of higher quality than standard brands.

“It’s more what’s wearable and what’s affordable, which is quite a practical approach,” she said. “We just don’t buy into it.”

The survey, taken last November, quizzed 23,500 people in 42 countries and exposed Australians as some of the more sceptical consumers when it comes to the value placed on designer brands.

The global results found Hungarians were the most likely to purchase designer brands (66 per cent) followed by consumers in Hong Kong (49 per cent) and Greece (34 per cent). Only 17 per cent of Australians were willing to buy the real thing.

Sorry! Sorry! Sorry!

‘BIG’ apologies to you all….and ‘cue’ the violins please…..

Guess what???

Yes, I have dropped off the radar lately….and I must apologise….I have been in the midst of starting an online business and hence have been flat out like a lizard drinking!! (Australian slang term)

So to you, my loyal reader, I am still here and will have some exciting news for you in the next few days to share with you all…..

In the meantime, have a little spew in your mouth or get a great big tear in your eye for these gut wrenchingly gorgeous photos…..

Today I love….Under-estimating the eating power of Amen….

21 Aug


“I wanna take a minute or two and give much respect to….a man who’s made a difference in my world….”

“Whatta man, whatta man, whatta mighty, mighty good man!!”

“Yes my man says he loves me, never says he loves me not….”

But guess what? He is THE biggest carnivore I have ever known…and that is saying something considering I lived with 5 big growing males at one time in my life….so here is the ultimate menu for my Mr. Big….I hope you have already eaten…please do not look at this post if you are hungry!!! :0

Appetizer – Ribs

Entree – Pizza

Main course – Pasta

Dessert….ice cream, of course….

I know….this is definitely not Mr. Bigs’ style…but it is sooo good I just had to share!!

This is more to his taste…..

Mmmmmmmmmm…………

YUMMO!!!!

Today I love….Turning your light off….

16 Aug

Oopsie!!!

I keep turning Mr. Bigs’ light off!

What the hell? I hear you say….

Let me explain….

At some point in my life….(we’ll just blame my thrifty pom Mother for this influence!)….

I have been taught to always turn the light off when leaving a room….so every now and again, I leave the room and turn the light off when Mr. Big is still there and leave him sitting in the dark! He is not very impressed at all….but I just can’t help it! Tonight after being left in the dark, he said to me – “Thanks for that”, so I walked off and thought he was giving me a compliment for something! As I said, oopsie!!!

To my Mr. Big, I sincerely apologise for all the other times I will definitely turn off your light!!!

This is kinda the reverse of how some people can’t close doors after they enter them – in aussie land we call this being born in a tent!

What do you do unconsciously???

Today I love….Sliding Doors

16 Aug

Why did my life turn out this way?

Don’t get me wrong – the problem isn’t that I am not happy – I believe I am very happy….and I am thankful for my life….I am (reasonably) healthy, employed and loved, well housed, fed and clothed….I don’t actually want for much at all!

When I was growing up, I always envisaged that I would be in a different place to where I am now….

For instance….by time my Mother was my age, she had an 8 year old daughter (me) and another baby imminently due! (my brother)….of course times change….

Me, on the other hand….no children of my own (yet) but I do help look after Mr. Bigs’ kids every 2nd weekend and school holidays etc. and they are a lovely little handful of joy!!!

We do have plans however…

I thought I would have travelled the world….

I thought I would have bought 1 (if not 2) house(s) and/or made my dream home into dreamy spaces….

I thought I would have made a career for myself (not just a job!) and found my niche in the world…..I always thought I was here to make a difference in others lives….

I can’t help myself thinking….what if?

I have some regrets, yes….but what if I had taken that job?

What if that boyfriend didn’t dump me?

What if I had taken that choice instead of this one?

What if I had taken that road instead of this one?

What if someone had told me all those years ago, how hard it was going to be for me to own my own home…would I have listened? I like to think so….but I am probably kidding myself!

So now, I have some work to do….by the time I am 40 I have some things that I simply must do! So, I’ll need to write my list of things to do before 40 very soon! Stay tuned for that post!

I need to achieve…..I need to find my purpose in life and I need to be happy with the path I am on and I need to love, love, love myself again and not feel like such a failure all of the time….

I also want to know….what would you have told your younger self?

Today I love….Cupcake Wars

16 Aug

Today is the RSPCA Cupcake Day!!!

So I hope that you are all munching away on pretty, lovely, yummy little cupcakes and of course, donating lots of $$$$ to a good cause!!!

If you missed my post about the RPSCA Cupcake Day, you can find it here….

In the meantime….

There is a war going on in our kitchens…..

A war over CUPCAKES!!!!

Love, love, love the idea…….

“Cupcake Wars pits Cupcake vs. Cupcake in Food Network’s tastiest competition yet.

In the latest episode, 4 cupcake makers vie to have their treats presented at the Alma Awards.

Judged on taste and presentation, only one will win the gig.

We are about to put on our helmet, pick up our frosting gun and go to battle.

The war is on!”

THEN, I found this little eco friendly gem….and I believe I need to add this to the wishlist as well…

I am a tad confused….if it is ceramic…does it weigh a tonne? Interesting….

Today I love….Kapai Puku

31 Jul

Yes, I am speaking English folks….

“One handful of Kapai Puku® may contain nearly five hundred individual life units, their capacity to promote your health and life are second to none.”

So I have been recently diagnosed with fatty liver infiltration….

I am 170cm tall and 71 kgs and am really not an ‘overweight’ person and I don’t really ‘feel’ overweight (only on some days!) but I must admit I am carrying a little extra bread rolls around my waist!

I can tell this because all of my old pants fit my legs and butt but not my waist!

Apparently I am the sort of person who puts on weight around their middle area only….I believe this is called an android body type….apparently liver problems can cause eczema and psoriasis so I believe this is also why my skin has been so bad lately….

So a while ago before I had this problem we tried a sample of a product at a market and it was called Kapai Puku….this stuff looks like bird seed (sorry folks!)….but I must admit it tasted bloody great!! It was mixed with milk and dried fruit – maybe sultanas and pear or paw paw…

So, on my new health kick I am of course on the hunt for this stuff….stay tuned for the results of the Kapai Puku!!!

This dude from Tour De France tips believes it is the wonder food as well!

“Here’s the deal with Kapai Puku. It’s epic. Epicly healthy. I eat it every day. Blows nearly every other cereal out of the water.”

You try going into a store or calling someone and asking for this stuff while keeping a straight face!

Go on you try and say it!!!

Today I love….One-Ingredient Ice Cream

20 Jul

Usually I freeze my old bananas to make into a banana cake…..(this is my Mumma training here)……

Then I found this great idea for using up the old frozen banana stockpile…..

It is way too cold in my part of the world to be eating any ice cream whatsoever but I hear there is a massive heat wave in the US of A so maybe someone over there will find this helpful and cooling – please let me know if you make it!

The best thing about this recipe is how easy it actually is to make!

The second best thing is it contains no fat, no cholesterol and no added sugar – just yummy, creamy and sweet bananas!

You will need about 4 frozen bananas (or 1 per person). Break them into chunks (if you can, muscle woman/man) and put them in the food processor. Pulse the processor a few times to break up the chunks then turn on full bore and run for about 5 minutes; scrape down the sides of the bowl occasionally (make sure you STOP the food processor 1st!). Place the mix in a bowl and re-freeze to firm for about 15 minutes or bugger that and just eat it!!! A spoonful of Milo (or drinking chocolate) and some chopped nuts goes beautifully served with the ice cream.

Yes, so the title of this post is ‘One Ingredient Ice Cream’…..theoretically you could do this with ANY frozen fruit – berries probably work best but let me know what you try (a mix of fruit maybe?) and please let me know how you go!!!

If you are still feelin’ HOT HOT HOT, check out my Honey Ice Cream post!!!

This is also a great idea – get your bananas and fill ’em up with chocolate chunks then bake ’em or whack them on the barbie (BBQ/Hotplate for you non-Aussies out there) to get some chocolatey banana-ery goodness!

Or aren’t these pretty????

Pretty damn easy for the little kiddies to do as well I say….

These are a few of my favourite things – Part 5 – Doorbells & sleigh bells and schnitzel with noodles
