Mother's Day

With only a couple of weeks to go I guess it's about time I updated my wishlist. I started "pinning" like crazy and thought I'd share a few of my favourites here.

I've had my eye on the Clarisonic Mia for a while, have read so many good reviews and my skin could do with a little pep up

Sure this McQueen is a bit pricey, but cashmere is an investment isn't it?

I love Tori Spelling and I love parties so this book was positively made for me

and this would be a fun addition to my wrist party

oh and speaking of additions, Harry could always do with a friend.

Now I just wish my mum would make a wish list to make my life easier,
at least there's bound to be a new Danielle Steel book out........

That's Pinteresting

When I first discovered Pinterest, it was worse than the rabbit hole of blog land. 
I would sit for hours pinning things I would do, make, wear. 
And then I would keep pinning and pinning and pinning. 

I decided that if I was going to keep this addiction up, I needed 
to slow down with the pinning and start doing.

I have been intending to do spray painted animal jars forever, 
Easter seemed like the perfect time to turn my pinning into something real.

How cute is this little guy?
A bit of glue, a bit of paint and.....
WA LA!!!

I think this little guy needs some friends.
With glitter!!!
The possibilities are endless

New Garabge

It's been a while, so I'm super excited about the new Garbage album

Which means loads of new promo pics.


Family portrait

Loving our first official family portrait done at kinder

Oh and yep, that's me in the centre,
with the big head!!!!

One Thing

In an effort to maintain “Coolest Aunty EVER” title, I did what any self-respecting Aunt to a tween would do.

Purchased ONE DIRECTION tickets. 
To Brisbane!!!!

We didn't anticipate Melbourne selling out and after trying to get onto ticketek's website for 
over half an hour, with the pending ticket purchase adrenaline still pumping through my veins, 
I took a chance and got lucky when the Brizzy tickets went on sale an hour later.
The problem was my sis had commitments the day of the show, so I was "forced" to accompany 
Miss J on an overnight adventure. Tough break!!!

I was ready to write One Direction off as a manufactured band of pretty boys who probably had little talent.
Then I watched a few appearances they did and I happened to get my hands on the season of X-Factor from which they were formed. BANG I was in hook line and sinker.

Friends may have threatened to disown me, but my little pop heart was over the moon.

So how was it?

I've been to a lot of shows over the years and I can honestly say I have never, ever heard a crowd so loud.
The atmosphere was incredible. We walked into the convention centre around the same time as the Nova crew and they got mobbed. There were tears and there was  lot of money made at the merchandise stand!
It was fun and the boys were amazing. The played pretty much the whole album and some really good covers, like Kings Of Leon's Use Somebody.

Haters are gonna hate, but I loudly and proudly declare 

And we love the new addition to our family
Welcome Harry

With next years shows going on sale this week, best I bust open that money box
and start counting my pennies.

Good stuff on the box

How good is TV at the moment?

I try not to get sucked into new TV shows, I can rarely commit to them but so far
 this year, I've loved Homeland, obsessed over Revenge and now The Voice.

Joel is as awesome as ever and Keith what a sweet heart.
How would you not melt when he asks  "What's your name baby?"

If only I could sing...........

bye bye holidays

So that's it school holidays done and dusted. 
We watched movies, went swimming and got arty.

Sugar-fest 2012, formally known as Easter, kicked off with an egg hunt at nanny and poppy's.

Doesn't matter how many times you tell people to chill with the eggs, this 3 year old still ended up with enough chocolate for a years supply, luckily the babydaddy has a sweet tooth.

The extra energy from the chocolate came in handy, my little daredevil 
wrapped up the Easter weekend showing of her steering skills

and made some new friends.

Sometimes it scares me a little at how fearless this kid is.

Will be good to get back to some sort of routine although I have a crazy week ahead, 
which involves baking 100 cupcakes, doing wedding photos (which I'm so bloody 
nervous about), and ummm flying to Brisbane and allowing my inner 14 year old to 
scream to her hearts content. Stay tuned........

Girl crush

Slowly, slowly Emma Stone has been moving her way up my girl crush list.
I'll always find room in my heart for a cute redheaded actress

Especially when she has such good taste

At the SAG awards in McQueen

Still gorgeous as a blonde and (despite the colour) I love this dress.

I'm yet to see her in a movie I didn't like love!

And well let's face it

Girl crush mets guy crush
