ARIA Fashion: Fifi's Fail

The ARIA's was on yesterday in Sydney and I have to say... some of the outfits were great but there was one that was particularly hideous. Never been a fan of Fifi to be honest. This outfit reminds me why.

All photos are from Daily Telegraph online.

What was she thinking? Ewww!

Spunk, in his own collection - Didier Cohen

Guy Sebastian and his pregnant wife looking radiant! I love Guy's outfit. 

Ricki Lee - loving her new bod.

Jessica Mauboy - great dress!

Delta looking much better here than she did at Avon's 125th Anniversary!

Arghhhh - what is going on here?

There doesn't seem to be much of a dress code for this event - some girls dressed in pants, while other are in cocktail dresses and then some in gowns? Hmmm

Happy birthday to my Love

Today is K's birthday! He turns 25 today and hasn't stopped reminding me since day one that he is three and a half years younger than me.

I couldn't be more proud of the man he has become. Especially since I met him just before his 21st birthday (which most girls know is a rather immature age for young men). Not K though. It seems like forever ago, but in 4 short years, our lives have changed dramatically and I am so thankful that I have him to share my life with.

He is determined, strong, happy and independent. He makes me laugh everyday. We spend a lot of time together but I never get sick of him (rarely, anyway). We developed our own personal language that we speak to each other with all the time and it makes me feel so close to him. He can talk to anyone. He is open, friendly and brutally honest about everything. He is also stubborn and a little too relaxed. But all of these plus a million more reasons make me love him more and more each day.

HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY K!! You are an amazing man. You have made my life complete. You are my life and love and I wouldn't want to be anywhere else but here with you.

(Honey & Fizz)

A million kisses today and everyday.

Brrrr... its cold in here.

Just last weekend I cleaned my new cupboard out, threw away lots of clothes I don't wear and packed up my winter clothes, my winter blanket and my boots.

This morning... I had to get my boots back down from storage! WTF is going on with this weather Earth Mother? How am I meant to know what to wear to work every day? If I have to get my doona back down from storage too there will be trouble.

Wish I could go home and put my UGGS on and have a nap.

Vogue Diaries

One of my favourite things to do is look at The Vogue Diaries. I could just sit for hours looking through all the photos. I love this site! If you haven't seen it, you should definitely have a look.

Here are some of my favourite pics from this morning's viewing!

Wish I had her pins! 

Amazing dress

I love this dress! So unusual.

Great shoes! 


Stunning... always

And again... amazing

I love Reese

Shoes are way too heavy but the dress is really nice...

Love that bag! 

Always looking gorgeous! 

Sometimes I can scroll for awhile and not find too many great outfits/photos, but today was a big score!

Funny morning...

K started a new job on Tuesday and today is his third day. I have been getting up super early with him and we have been catching the train at 6.10am. Except today K misread the train timetable and we caught the train from Penshurst and we just missed the fast train. We had to get on the very slow all stations train. We were so tired on the way in but luckily we weren't late.

It was 6.50am and he starts at 7am, but his colleagues and boss had already left the office where the meet and were walking across the road to the site. His supervisor made a bee line for him and I heard K say "oh sh*t" and so I just put my head down and kept walking. I didn't even say goodbye to K. I totally freaked and thought the boss would yell at him or something and so I got out of there quick smart.

Ha ha - I think an old boss of mine who made my life hell has scared me half to death of all bosses. I felt like I was in school again.

Funny times. I bet he wasn't even in trouble because we weren't even late!

We are in!

It's been more than a week since I posted last. Wow. What a slacker. But to be real, I have been flat out moving house and we do not have the internet connected at home yet. I desperately want to use our new Macbook but we cant! Its only been like 4 days but still... it feels like longer.

We are all settled in our new home. I cant believe it. For the last two nights, I have left work and gone home to my own place. Our unit. Just the two of us. And it has been heaven.

I am going to post some before and after pics shortly. It has been so much fun refurbishing - its amazing what a lick of paint can do!

Sorry Kim...

As most would know... I am obsessed with the Kardashian's. I follow them religiously and I am pretty much getting Foxtel just so I can watch their shows. In saying that, I was so disappointed to hear of Kim's divorce after 72 days (read my post from November 1).

I saw this interview of Kim & Khloe in Sydney with Paula Joye recently and now I feel my outburst was a little hasty. As soon as I saw this I felt instant sadness for her. She seems devastated.

(The Age)

Not sure what went so very wrong for them, but I do know that I wouldn't wish divorce on anyone. Especially if Kris was misbehaving, as some media reports are saying.

Just want to say sorry Kim. I feel bad for my outburst. I hope you start to feel better soon and keep on being the total glamazon that you are.

I have been waiting for this day all year....

Our agent just called! We get to pick up the keys today!! Our investment unit is finally going to be our home. I am so excited...

Really?... like... Really?

Kim K and Kris... divorced... in 72 days? Really?


I mean, I cant say I am surprised as such. I thought he was a total arrogant pig on the show. They argued a lot and he really wanted her to live in his Minnesota house... that was never going to happen Kris. Seriously.

But to be honest, I have to say I am a little disappointed. I believed that their marriage was "for real". Let me clarify, that by "for real", I mean by Hollywood standards, not by normal-average-joe-standards like me and my friends. I certainly didn't think they would divorce within 2 years.  But 72 days? What a joke. I thought Kim had way more class than that?

I feel like I, as the viewer/consumer/fan, have been taken advantage of so that she and E-News could gather more fortune for themselves. I have been taken for a joy ride.

I am starting to wonder whether it is all a sham? The show. The relationships. The marriages. Are we in a worldwide episode of The Truman Show? Or is the divorce just another publicity stunt? After Kris' comments this afternoon about "willing to do whatever it takes to make it work", I have no idea what's real and what's not?

Read this article about Kim's people calling the managers of various basketball teams and asking if their NBA stars would be interested in 'pretend' dating Kim for the opening episode of her show. WTF? How desperate for ratings and money can one already loaded person get?

Give me Khloe and Lamar any day. At least they are real. Even Kourtney and Scott's relationship isn't ideal but at least it's real.

Disappointed and disgruntled.
