Oh how I love New York

Cashmere Mafia has just started. It's set in New York (one of my favourite cities of all time) so it can't be all that bad can it? (or is it a SATC rip off with a little more drama?) But I can't help thinking that Miranda Otto and Frances O'Connor should be speaking with Aussie accents.
Anyways, so when I spent 3 hours at IKEA, Brisbane, I really really really wanted to bring this home. I mean really. It was just a little, um, big. Darn it.

Sarah's amazing trivia - I once saw Frances O'Connor shopping for bed linen at Liberty. Just goes to show the girl has fabulous taste. I don't think she was very well known then but I recognised her because I love this movie.
My friend Ernie took this photo of The Big Apple. Ain't she a beauty? Click for a closer look.

My friend Keri bought Poppy in to work a couple of weeks back. Look how she has grown! I'd love to have a dog at work all the time. I think it makes everyone joyful.

Pretty wallpaper, scary bird!

I had to take a photo of this wallpaper I really liked in the ladies loos at David Jones, Brisbane. It's pretty yeah? But it reminds me a little of these scary looking birds that I saw on the Gold Coast!

Oh cabaret, oh cabaret, oh cabaret

Let me set the scene:
A cold wintery night; coats, scarves & gloves. Round tables covered with black tablecloths. Centrepieces of glowing orange candles. Twinkling fairy lights. And Juliet Reynolds Midgley belting out Barbra Streisand. Putting It Together. People. Don't Rain on my Parade. Evergreen. Children Will Listen. All them and a whole lot more. It was perfectly wonderful.

New shoes

Ooh look, new shoes. I love them. We found each other and it was fate. Firstly, my size was on the shelf. Something that never happens. I felt like Cinderella. Secondly, they fit perfectly and are super comfy and thirdly they were the last pair! See, a perfect match.
For those who need to know, they're the Dixie shoe by L by Miss L Fire.

Snow Happy

It snowed last night. It only happens about once a year in Christchurch and I love love love falling snow. I could watch it for hours. But it was so freezing cold that right after I took this photo I ran back inside into the warmth to watch The Holiday and have dinner with my kickass friend Dom and little Mary-Jane. It was a wise move.
I hope your weekend was warmer than mine!

Dave Grohl takes a fall

It's reassuring to know that even rockstars fall over.
