Happy Oz Day.

And a belated one at that. Did you picnic or bbq? - I watched the tennis on the couch nursing a bad case of gastro. Nice. Oh well, just means twice as many lamingtons for me next year....

Why Hello....

It's been a whole week. Sorry. Life is way too busy for my liking at the moment. How are you? I'm finishing up day three of a five day weekend (nice hey!) - and it could not have come at a better time. I'm almost 'wound down' and still have two days to go, yay. Glass of wine. Australian Open on TV, flicking through tumblr sites. It is the simple things I tell you. Be back again when I've got something good to share. No point posting otherwise! xx

Wear it on your sleeve...

Positive, affirmative, getting the best out of every moment - that is what I'm trying to be all about in 2010. Soooo, any excuse to justify a purchase from Kate Spade..... No doubt you have seen her idiom bracelets, complete with some of 'their favourite phrases delicately printed inside' - "cool as a cucumber", "every dog has its day", "read between the lines","bright spot" - and some of my favourites to inspire you to be the best you can be in 2010 - "make your move", "have courage" and "take a chance". So until Ms Spade sees sense and ships Down Under, find yourself someone who is in the States or is visiting soon to get you one of these pretties to help you begin the New Year in style.

Hot, Hot, Hot!

So it's only going to be 43 oC plus in Adelaide over the weekend (that's 109.4 oF for my Fahrenheit friends....) so lucky I'm heading to the beach. It's the first weekend of 2010, how did that happen?! I had friends over for dinner tonight and I managed to wish them all a "merry Christmas" as they left - time is seriously flying (so fast I'm only managing to say it for 2009, or getting in early for 2010, I'm so confused!) - happy weekend beautifuls, catch you Monday x

Despite being back at work, I've been trying my hardest to extend out the 'holiday feeling' this week. Leaving work on time, sneaky gins and pink grapefruits with friends in the evening, and finally visiting my favourite blogs despite having more 'practical' things to do when I get home - it's almost like being on 'proper holidays'. So the darling Kathryn over at Snippet and Ink posted her 'favourites of 2009' and this image was included in her favourite 'gowns' post. I mean, the image in itself is enough to die for, but THAT DRESS - eeks! - Kate Towers is responsible for this master piece. So I head to her site - and, I. Die. A. Thousand. Times. Over. Every piece is to die for and I want it all.

See her site here. And her etsy site here.

Evelyn Pultara's Work

I haven't really made New Years resolutions, more like 'what I'd like to achieve in 2010', which, at the rate I am going should be closely followed by a "how I am going to win the lottery to fund my proposed achievements for 2010...." - on the first list? buy some art, and I'd love a piece by Evelyn Pultara. Why? Isn't it obvious? - the colours. Love. Read more about Evelyn and buy her art here.

A new years resolution you'll want to keep....

..... with campari, pink grapefruit, fresh lime and lots of ice. YUM! (happy new year lovelies .... or as Ruby says "happy birthday ear"?!?!) xx
