And now for something a little different….

26 Oct

Yesterday was a bit heavy, wasn’t it? I got some great feedback so it was obviously an important post but yeah, heavy. So just because I can, something a little lighter.

I want to share some current favourites of mine. Enjoy!

 1. Favourite silliness

Now, I haven’t seen Jersey Shore yet but it is most definitely on my To-Do list (along with Jason Stackhouse – BOOM!). I don’t know anything about the characters except what I’ve read about them in the trashy magazines I not-so-secretly love but this little number makes me laugh.

Below is a gif. I thank Jezebel for this description –
 
 Gifs—”graphics interchange formats”—are unique to the internet, in that they utilize a short loop of soundless video-like motion to convey thoughts, feelings, memes, or retorts. While a picture says a thousand words, a gif gets the point across much more succinctly.
 
 It took me a while to actually notice the ‘Snooki Bomb’ (duh!) but when I did, I had to watch it over and over again. Ha!

Snooki Bomb

This girl is an idiot. I think I’m going to LOVE her.



2. Favourite blog

Dear Baby, the story of Melissa and Brent with their precious new girl, Everly, is the ultimate testimonial to how beautiful family life can be. Melissa’s lovely words are accompanied by some equally lovely photography.

I’m absolutely smitten with these three.

And check out the super-cute Miss Everly in live motion…

 

3. Favourite bag

Ha! I need one. Hilarious AND organic! And only $11.  I found them online at Bag Ladies. Check it out here.

 

4. Favourite chocolate

I get my groceries delivered (soooo much easier than trying to shop with the kidlets) and often, there are a couple of free samples thrown in. Once upon a time, the sample was from Chocolatier. OH MY! So good (and so much better than a sample of cat food!) But back to the chocolate. I can’t decide if my favourite is the Mud Cake or the Strawberry Delice. So I guess I’ll just keep eating them both.

 

5. Favourite thing I will not spend crazy $$$ on for my boy (even though I really, reeeally want to)

 LD has the skinniest legs known to man. They are so chickeny-gorgeous! Which makes them perfect for skinny jeans. Apart from the fact that I spend about the same on my own jeans, B is against the skinny denim trend and thus, I will most likely never see my little skinny-legged boy in this pair of skinny-legged joy. Oh, but they’re gorgeous. I found them at Cradle Rock which is a very cool little online store run by Julie Lemmon. The range is fantastic and the service impeccable. Add lightening fast postage to the mix and you have yourself a VERY addicitive little online shopping haunt.

 

6. Favourite dress for the little daughter I don’t (currently) have

 This is the Alba Dress in aqua. Isn’t it dreamy? Hell, I want one in my size.  Oh, but we would be paupers if I had a daughter. Perhaps that’s why my children keep being born with penises. Again, I found this at cradlerock.com.au. If you do happen to decide you can’t live without it, let Julie know I sent you. 🙂 

 

7. Favourite series

So, B and I just finished watching True Blood Season 3 and I’m told we have until midway through next year before there is any more bloody goodness to be had. So I’m definitely up for Jersey Shore but I’m relatively certain that B will want no part in any show that features a character named ‘The Situation’. And he sure as hell isn’t getting on board with The Hills.

B and I do some serious bonding watching a series together on the couch. We need fresh blood – seeing as there’s no more True Blood. Hit me up with suggestions.
