Find a Penny, Pick it up, All Day Long You'll have Good Luck


Is it still fortuitous when said penny falls from your own pocket?

Please excuse this picture as lovingly stolen from Flickr and then graffitied by me, as I have only had coffee and a piece of lemon slice today and the sugar and caffeine are playing havoc with my brain. This is a Botta's Pocket Gopher - I was hoping the picture would organically infer that one should keep such a creature in one's pocket and therefore not lose their change as I did today, but it doesn't appear to have worked well at all. It looks like he's just won the Rat Olympics.

Citius, Altius, Fortius.

Never go it alone in a pine forest

Another reason why I hate pine trees...
Day of Reckoning Tee on sale at Threadless for only $5. Watch your backs people. They are everywhere, especially at this time of year.

Dear Father Christmas

Not being greedy - just want one thing this year.
I'll have this little gem in Kensington thanks. No need to wrap it, just tie the keys with a big red bow and I'll be happy.

Feed my Addiction

Last year was the first in ages that I didn't buy a new bikini (instead I got myself a couple of pairs of new boardies). This year, I am looking at my pale and pudgy post winter self and thinking that maybe I am over my bathers addiction...

But no.

The clever duo behind Kitten have come up with a new swimwear label; Hotel Bondi Swim. You probably wouldn't guess it from the label name, but their collections are inspired by Bondi and the ideas for the prints come from all the different vibes the place throws out - from the parrots behind the Bondi Pavillion to those dreamy boardriders.

And I am in luurrve.

Lets start with the pic that greated me when opening up their webpage
My usual shopping day outfit.
I grew up with boxers, so I think I should get this Tshirt for free

The best dresses always have pockets.
They think my eyebrows are cool,

but most importantly, they do a mean bikini.

I still call Australia Home

I just saw the Baz Luhrmann movie Australia and I was completely suckered in. The whole movie was one glorious cliche after another and it pushed every emotional button it could. And I LOVED every moment of it.
Brandon Walters was just beautiful. I really hope he lands another great film after this as he was a natural. He had me laughing and crying - I was a bloody emotional wreck because of him.

Nicole Kidman's wardrobe was heaven sent. It was all designed by Catherine Martin, who has used the Lady Sarah Ashley character as inspiration for a new, exclusive (and super expensive) line for RM Williams. Its all rather flamboyant and romantic and cos I'm still in the lovesick throes of the movie, I'm rather taken by it all.

This last dress costs $7,900. I didn't think you could buy anything in Oz for that much, but apart from that, I think its lovely.

French Kiss

How gorgeous is this frock? Its made in France and it wants to live in my wardrobe (although I should tell it now - my wardrobe is time share; it will probably get about a month in there a year, the rest of the time it will have to live in its real home, the floor).

Tuesday Tunesday - Escape

The most exciting thing happened to me!!!!!!!! (I do not like exclamation marks, so that has got to be a good indication of how exciting it is!)

I got given an ipod touch!!

It has changed my life! I am a different person! I am way cooler for a start!

I loaded it up and culled songs that appeared across albums more than once, except for this one! I think it may be on there 3 times!

I love love love this song! (see how I did the 3 times thing there again!)

One afternoon in the unibar, my friends and I planned how we would make our own film clip, but several rounds of Pina Coladas later plans stalled, which sucks cos it would have been rad!!!

I think this version is very much on my wavelength!
