Bras, nails and Barbara

As I have stopped breastfeeding and wearing nursing bras is a tad silly when you don't need them, I decided to do a little online shopping for a few new bras.

I stopped by a few online stores but not all of them go up to an E cup (story of my life). I was suprised that bras'n'things were having a sale and that they had increased their E cup bra range from when I last looked (which was a long tim ago...).

I decided to get a couple of sports bras, because they are so comfy. I decided on this style.

This came in a pack of two (one black and pink and one white and pink)...and it was on sale for $20!!!!

I also got this bra for $10... I love purple...

I was very impressed by how fast bras'n'things shipped my order!

Here are what my nails look like today. The colour is OPI 'ate berries in the canaries' and the accent nail is Color Club in 'Coral Cascade'.

Then I stamped on a couple of stars in the matching OPI colour (hard to see in this photo)

I was watching The View today and Barbara Walters had such an awesome necklace on! Very pretty turquoise colour. I took a photo... how cool is it? Barbara sure looks good for an 82 year old!

Have a great weekend :)

You've got mail.

Don't you just love it when you get a parcel in the mail?

I had completely forgotten about my Chine Glaze order!!

This is my favourite colour from my order... It's called "Ruby Slippers"...and has lots of red shimmery glitter in it, just like Dorothy's shoes from the Wizard of Oz.


I painted my nails with "Passion", which is a pale gold.


Then I put on 2 coats of "I'm not lion".

And I got this...

It is very pretty and super sparkly is real life...and a tad more gold. I love that the glitter is fine and not too chunky!!

I got a few more nail polishes, can't wait to try them all.

A baby-less day...

Today my four beautiful girlfriends and I met up ...and I went babyless!! My husband is at home today so he offered to watch him because I believe it has become very obvious that I just need a couple of hours away from him. I missed him alot, but I was only gone for about 4 hours.

My friend lives in the mountains...I know I am getting close to her house when my car radio looses music and just turns to buzzing. It is very beautiful. I took this photo near her house.

I'm glad it was a nice day with no raindrops in sight. The road to her house goes around and around and around, so many twists and turns. I drove back in the dark going well under the speed limit, the locals all honked me...I'd rather be safe then sorrow.

In true form, we usually bring gluten-free snacks (gluten-free because 3 of my friends have gluten intolerance...the 4th is cutting it from her diet to see if it helps he asthma!). Cupcakes are our favourite treat, I had some time last night to quickly whip up a batch. Just vanilla, but I made the icing purple... I wish I could have made bright purple icing but it was not to be - I mixed red and blue...I think you probably have to buy purple to make it vivid. Oh well. The cupcakes were all finished so I know they didn't taste like crap (which often happens to my gluten-free food..)

It was a good day - awesome friends and a bit of a chin-wag. Can't ask for more than that!

New colour on my nails yesterday. This is China Glaze in "Tantalize Me". I'm not the best photographer and taking a photo at night using the light in your kitchen is probably not ideal. It's a beautiful pink/purple shade with sparking blue in the light, often giving it a more purple-y look. I added the stars with my new konad stamper.

The Block 2012 - sad goodbye

Is anyone else sad that Channel 9's The Block is over? I looked forward to watching it everyday.

I am a HUGE Dale and Sophie Vine fan. I love their vintage/recycled style. Very fantastic.

I went out and bought The Block Magazine. I love it. It has a lot of content, including a page on every room. It also has some details on where to get a lot of the products from the show.

One of the items I loved from the show was this Jackalope Head in Sophie and Dale's kids/teenagers room. At first  was weirded out by it, I have come to love it. You can buy it from for $49.95.

Another thing I adored from the same room where the cute stuffed bunny, they are from Maiike in Hawthorn, they are made from recycled fabric. I want one for my son, so cute!!

I love the use of colour that Dale and Sophie used in their dinning room. I love the placemats and hanging jar light that Sophie made.

Dan and Dani's backyard...

I love ceramics. It was my favourite subject in school. These cute white figurines from The Block are from Bed Bath N' Table. The crane is only $14.95 - I must have it. So unique. I love those white bunnies too! The crane is from Dan and Dani's house. The bunnies are from Dale and Sophie's.

Sophie wore a beautiful bunting necklace in the series. It is from a UK designer called Lucie Ellen. I really love the diamond jubilee bunting necklace. It typical Sophie fashion, this necklace is made from reclaimed wood - I love that!!

Lucie-Ellen has heaps and heaps of cute things to buy!! Should I buy one? Ohhh so tempting... I love that these are all handmade.

What a great show from Channel 9 - can't wait for the next series. Congrats to Brad and Lara for their winning home!

The Block magazine costs $8.95 and it available from your newsagent :)

My son

Ohhh Hi There.

I am well aware that I haven't posted an months.
What's happened in that time?

I had my gorgeous son. One day I'll write out my birth story...when I get the time and energy. His birth was hard, he was born no breathing and had some problems but now he is a wonderful 4.5 month old!!

I've wanted to come back on my blog for a long time now. I have decided to try and update weekly.

See you soon.
