Introducing..... Chuck Bass

Yes..... Yes we do.
So I turned 33 yesterday. No big deal. But middle age is fast approaching. Still single (and most of the time thats more than ok) but it was time to get a new house mate. Enter Chuck Bass. Possibly the most cutest blue british shorthair cat going around. He is only four weeks old and still living with the breeder in WA. He arrives May 19 and I can't flipping wait. And, even if I may say so myself, how fabulous is my little kitty's name??? - I like to think he will be arriving by 'private lear jet' (more like a plastic crate on a QANTAS flight...) - won't be long before he is sporting one of these....
.... a plaid collar of course. British shorthairs are inside cats so the collar isn't a necessity, but I'll be taking every advantage to set Chuck up sipping single malt scotch, getting around in a suit and tie and wearing plaid socks....kidding, kind of.
One of the exciting things is to that a whole new shopping opportunity has opened up - and mungo and maud have all the best stuff, including this bowl.
Even chic toys for Charles.
So indulge me a little will you - my little fur baby. I promise to not become too much of a crazy cat woman but seriously.... look at him.... it's going to be hard not to.

Keeping Guard.....

I'm back - what a week and after a marathon sleep (i hate a flight through the night), I'm enjoying catching up on little jobs around the house before I'm back to work Wednesday.
Lucky I had my little pug on guard looking after the SFC while I was away. Do you have a set of the fabulous (and incredibly popular) Pug book ends from BBT? - I'm using a white set as door stops in my house, too flipping cute! Get yours here - Black or White $39.95

off again...

Ohhhh to look this glamorous when I travel. Seriously, you'll be lucky to catch me at the airport with a bit of make up on. Horrendous I know. Not a huge fan of flying but a couple of nerve calming glasses of champagne always helps.... Packing my bags, fly back to the Philippines tomorrow, just for a week though. Will be an intense but productive week. Thankfully there are fabulous day spas within walking distance of where we will stay, and at the quarter of the price here in Oz. Fingers and toes crossed that the plane stays in the sky kids, oh and QANTAS, lets see if we can arrange for my luggage to arrive the same time as I do this time? thanks.

Super Styled

How fabulous is the spring/summer 2012 look book images for Anya Hindmarch?! - i'm sure it's the accountant in me that loves symmetry and this kind of 'colour collection styling' (i'm sure there is a proper word for it, but i'm not known for being proper, sorry..) - Still loving the huxley. Maybe I should furnish my home before going off and buying beautiful handbags - so much to do, so little time.....

Anna Burke's Apartment

Hallelujah, Lonny is back and it's brilliant.
Remember when I lost it over this bar cart nook back here? Well the rest of the house is featured in the March/April Lonny (on the front page and from page 186).... absolutely delicious, I want it all. Home to Anna Burke and her sister Caroline, they managed to decorate the place themselves, and on a budget. This home totally and utterly goes to show that high class and serious style isn't always about a lot of money. But that a fabulous sense of style, patience, a great eye and incredible talent goes a long way. Emma, how can we start channelling this look for my place please????? xx

Out of control amazing room

After a below average week (no reason, but we all have them to appreciate the other weeks, right?) this pic represents total escapism. Hence why it is fab. Escapism is what this long weekend will be all about for me, thank you very much. Miss French Navy and I are packing up her car and heading to a SA beach side haven to read, relax, sleep, eat, drink, watch and surf the net (and repeat from the start) - Happy Weekend, we are almost there....aren't we????? xox
