Cancer you suck big fat hairy balls

It's Daffodil Day this week. 

If you haven't already and you can spare a dollar or two please donate.

I drove an 800km round trip today to attend a funeral because of cancer.

R.I.P Michele.  You battled that bastard with much grace and dignity, your memory will be forever cherished.

Remakes are bad...honest.

Some things should be left in the past.

Please Australian tv execs dont try and recreate this magic, it will only end in tears,

And just for those playing at home, who used to sing into their hair brushes and dreamt of singing a duet with Vinnie Del Tito (or Joey Perrone)  here is a great Australian TV magic moment (it could rival Molly dying on a Coutry Practice)

Big Bags

Waaaaa, I am scared.

I have never put my mug on the blog before. I am more of a behind the camera gal not in front.

Now the reason for this photo is to show you the bags I am packing under my eyes.  These suckers are the Louis Vuitton of the (eye) bag world.

So I moisturise daily and have pots and potions of goop all over the place but never seem to stick to a "routine" religiously.  But these bags seem to get worse as the years roll by.

So on Monday I spent the grand sum of $19 and bought this little sucker.

Apparently (hopefully) this stuff will visibly reduce the appearance of dark circles and puffiness YAY.

Now the real challenge will be sticking to it for the whole 4 weeks.

Me and my bags will keep you posted during the 4 weeks.

*Disclaimer* this is not a paid or sponsored post as this is not that kind of blog (obviously)

Drink Du Jour

I love me a drink, of the alcoholic kind. 

I even have a special drink cupboard but do not think I am a cupboard drinker.

I love summer, I love hosting parties and making a new drink to share with my friends that I have discovered.

I am always on the look out for new funky glasses and Dan Murphy's to me  is like a lolly shop to a kid.  I get giddy in that shop.

So I thought I would share a drink I discovered a few months back that I have shared with my friends and they have all loved.

So you need:

1 part
(or you can use vodka if you prefer)
1 part
you can use ginger ale if you prefer, I have tried both ways but prefer the ginger beer
and 1 part

 and a squeeze of lemon or lime juice.  I put mine in a cocktail shaker but don't make the mistake of shaking it vigorously like me,  ginger beer when shaken explodes, trust me.  So either stir or gently shake the vessel then pour over crushed ice into a glass of your choice.  No garnish for this drink (and I love me a garnish) a straw if you must but otherwise just drink (guzzle) at your leisure.

This is a seriously refreshing drink without being too sickly sweet. 

My tip:  Before making for friends decide on your serving glass and find an appropriate measure to suit your cup to get the parts right.  Also you can (obviously) mix the quantities to suit your tastes e.g less alcohol (gasp) or soft drink.  Also go the diet soft drinks if you prefer.
Enjoy.  You're Welcome.

Would love to hear your favourite cocktail or mocktail.

Frock It #11

Nothing controversial this week just a really beautiful simple dress worn by a beautiful girl.  Frieda Pinto (Slumdog Millionaire  fame) in New York heading into a tv studio selling her new flick  Rise of the Planet of the Apes

Great hair and it looks like the kind of dress that would suit a lot of shapes (I think)

So come join in and link up to This Mid 30's Life

Floatin my Boat

I love me a little bit of musical genius, you know when you get little goosebumps and all.  I couldn't have picked a better "quartet" to sing together. 

Well for me today I caught an ad for the new reality show The Voice

Like Adam Levine wasn't already hot enough, Cee Lo Green just got a tiny bit cute and Blake Shelton (who I had to google) is darn tootin cute too.

Love it...  So I guess this reality tv hag has a new addition to add to the watch list, I hope they do more songs together.
