single digit countdown

The sleep countdown has now officially hit single digits.

In 9 sleeps we will be boarding a big jet plane and it seems that as soon 
as I cross something off the "TO DO" list, I add another two things to do.

Thankfully I have an eager beaver ready to give a helping hand.

Travel on baggage safety check can now be crossed off the list!

Oh and just gotta say how much I love blog land and social media 
at the moment for all the travel tips I've read and been sent. 

Thanks peeps I'll be sure to share what works (and possibly what doesn't).

Dear Ewan

I thought you already had enough room in my heart but to be honest you've made some shockers over the past few years and I am really not usually a fan of your American accent. 
Then I watched Beginners.
OMG my personal pic for movie of the year.

So so so good.

Raised By Wolves?

She may favour peanut butter from the jar

We may constantly disagree on the amount of clothing that should 
be worn during winter and about the use of hair brushes

and I may be powerless to that cheeky smile
but man, I love this kid
even if it does appear that sometimes she is raised by wolves

I see red

Tomorrow I will be wearing my red scarf and sending as must positive energy as I can to the Morcombe family as they face another horrid day

I can't even put into words what needs to be said, thankfully Nikki over at Styling You has 
take a second to have a read and maybe add some red to your outfit tomorrow -

I can't wait to get my paws on a copy of the September issue of UK Vogue for 
the awesome pics from Kate Moss's wedding portfolio.

Thought I'd share a couple here because they are that ace!

This is probably my favourite (in my head she's wearing faux fur)

How stressful would it have been to find the right outfit for this wedding.
I'm having palpitations just thinking about it.

More pics and article here
(although I wouldn't read the article if you're prone to wedding envy)

Holiday countdown

So this time in exactly three weeks we will be on our way to our first family holiday.

While I'm super excited, I'm more anxious than anything.

What to pack
How will Sadie be on the flight?
How will I cope staying with the in laws for a couple of weeks 
(in a country where I don't speak the language)?
Will London be safe by the time we get there?
and most importantly Will my credit card last?

I guess only time will tell, and in the meantime I will try to find a way to get 
Bach Rescue Remedy into an IV.

I'm still open to any advice for travelling with a toddler, or travel tips in general. It's been so long since I've been on a flight for more than a few hours so I'd be grateful for any tips!!!

Oh and while were at it any ipad app recommendations not only for the kiddo but anything anyone has used that's helpful in general xx

it must be a sign

I nearly wet my pants when my sister sent me a link to this new "Tokidoki" Barbie.


This b-iatch is hot.
We'll be adding her to our Barbie collection FO SHO
I love her

Current Obsession :Pink hair

I tend to get something set in my mind and then can't stop thinking about it.

At the moment it's rose pink hair,
but I don't know that I have the bravado to pull it off

My hair is at that inbetween length and I'm growing it again but I want something FUN
and I think my holiday snaps would look awesome with a pink haired mumma!!!
I'm booked in next week regardless for a cut maybe I should see if we can squeeze a colour as well.

Keep ya posted

Bet her milkshake brings all the boys to the yard!!!

(all pics are from my pinterest "pink hair" board)

Holy smoke

Victoria Beckham just tweeted this photo of her gorgeous husband, I mean baby.

I think my ovaries are aching

The cool kids

I suppose when you have Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale for parents, 
coolness is bound to ooze from  every pore.

So can someone explain how arranged marriages work, 
I'd be happy for Sadie to inherit her mother in laws wardrobe.

Couldn't help myself

I'm sure she's a lovely person but can I just say
those boobs are amazing!!

(I know this is a very shallow post but I need to fill a few minutes in between doing my yoga and squats while waiting for my Noni juice to arrive)

Scrolling through twitter the other night I noticed Ben Gillies had posted no tweeted (????) this

If the name doesn't ring a bell, Ben Gillies is (was ) the drummer from Silverchair.
So I was a little beside myself when he re-tweeted my dirty bird response.

Oh yeah I'm so cool right now!!!

Last Of The Firsts

The weather today was so different to this exact day one year ago.

I don't normally keep track of the weather but I will always remember the cold rainy 
day that ended with a phone call that shook my world and that of my loved ones.

I will always remember the exact spot I was standing in the kitchen as I was dishing 
up a meal I will never make again (the thought of it turns my stomach).

I will always remember wondering why my Dad calls my mobile
 and not my house phone and
I will always remember thinking I heard wrong.

It was the night that the road toll statistics became more than numbers

But we keep on keeping on....

One year on and my heart is still heavy but I like to think that this is what Ronald spends his time doing in some other place while he watches over his beautiful girls.

Miss you fucker
