Piaget yummy ring

Stumbled on this ring on Twitter from the lovely @FeowFeow.

It is a Piaget ring with Citrine stone. How gorgeous is this! I have a bad weakness for cocktail rings. But as per usual, I love them and yet do not wear them. LOL

Story of my life. Drooling over ring.

Nespresso Citiz finally!

I have plotted, planned, saved and waited until this machine went on sale in Myer.
So it finally did! 20% off and I had a few gift cards ultimately paid only $289 at the cashiers.

I think this will change the way we have weekend breakfasts out at cafes. We have been leaning towards staying at home a lot more these days anyway. But I believe this will be the end of my cafe coffee addiction. $8 for two of us vs 2 pods. :) Brilliant!

Now to start depreciating this machine! I have already ran to Nespresso boutique and bought the 2011 release. So far only the vanilla and dark chocolate flavours. I will have to go back and try the cherry as well. Ooohhh I am excited.

Pork Floss Buns

This will either make you drool or gross you out. I was shocked that Mick thought this is the most disgusting thing he ever eaten before. He pretty much had to scrape his tongue after putting this in his mouth! It is something that I grew up eating, pork floss was I guess Australia’s vegemite. And now I see that it is the same controversial item. I am addicted! I can eat this everyday and be a happy cat.
I have already taken bites out of the bun before I took the picture. Pork Floss buns are amazing and I do not care what anyone says. It is AmazeBalls!

What food have you grown up eating and thought it was the yummiest thing ever and everyone else cringes and thinks it’s disgusting? My friends regularly tease me on Facebook and a status update on Pork floss drew 60 comments. Mick’s status on having a new baby – 4. HAHAHHA

Sits back now and waits for the comments of Eeeewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww to pour in.

Interesting thought - followup on what is your passion..

Someone from my Twitter feed commented that the cab driver sounded amazing. And that the universe sends you people like that for a reason.
I am now wondering if I will be part of the group of "Today's Youths" that have no passion but get distracted by having all the different means. I think he was driving at us wasting time on the Interwebz. So if that is the case, let's all shut down for like 5minutes and think about why I was sent this cab driver. Amazing really.. there was only one cab outside my building at that time.

What is your Passion?

I took a cab home yesterday from work. It was 7pm and I had been there since 8.30 in the morning and I had not left my desk. I was really not in the mood to stand and wait for a train and walk up a hill.

You know when you get into a cab and you think.. Ok this cab is safe and clean! WOW! Yes that! The driver was someone who had been in the advertising industry for 35 years. Of course, after I heard this, I asked if he had watched Mad Men. :) The lovely cab driver started to over share details of his life - as all drivers do - and told me about his plans on liquidating everything he owned n Australia to move to Scotland and write his mythology book. After giving me snippets on how he hates swearing, how he believes the ying and the yang in the world are at imbalance, the corporate greed made him want to shoot his brains out. He started talking about his passion about the last 5minutes of the journey. He turned it around to me and said what is your passion? I have talked way too much.

I sat there and had nothing to say for a minute. Do I really not have a passion? I hope I am not alone in this! Take a minute to stop and think what is your passion and report back. I am still debriefing myself. What is my passion?

Shoe Porn Part 1

There is nothing quite as exciting as opening a box of my Pleaser shoe orders and sorting out the shoes that the girls have ordered. So I went back to ordering Pleasers again and I am loving the excitement of browsing 6inch thigh high boots.

I got these ones – black patent Mary Janes with a swallow buckle. They are from the PinUp range which the entire office is going crazy over. I have to stop myself from ordering anymore but they are too cute. I hate being half a size in between two. Size 7 is impossible to get my feet into and size 8 is a little too big. Anyone has any tips for which insoles to get?

Hunting for outdoor lanterns

I do not think that I have blogged about my decking. But finally after 4 years of planning, we finally built it. Where are the pics? I have not had time to move it off yet - that will be my excuse for another 4 years.

Anyway, so now we need lanterns for outdoors.. preferably in a string and preferably solar. Ha ha ha! Not gonna happen right? I heard that Ikea has some stringed lanterns but really who has time to truck 2 babies to Ikea and wait in line for the lifts alongside 200 other prams?

I found these online and thought someone must buy them! Flamingo lights!!!
