Fridays Fancy

Every Friday morning a friend of mine emails around pics of her fave 'hotties'. I thought I might introduce this idea into my blog. So from now on, you can check in here to see my latest 'Fridays Fancy'....

Fly me to the moon...

...Is what I shall be saying to Sir Richard Branson when I meet him on March 19th.

I am very excited to be attending a fabulous charity event at the Burswood. The event has been organised to raise funds for the Strike a Chord for Cancer Foundation which you can read all about here.

I have decided that Sir Dick and I shall become great friends and he is sure to invite my lovely friends and I on one of his Virgin Galactic voyages.

We treated ourselves to VIP tickets for a few reasons, a) It's a good cause b) we get to meet the man himself (and become BFFs of course) and c) French Champagne, lots and lots of French Champagne.

So the obvious dilemma remains to be solved. What does one wear to a pool side charity event hosted by one of the richest men in the world??

How about, a little Jonathan Saunders?..

Perhaps Roberto Cavalli?..

A Wee Pucci?..

Get wrapped up in Herve Leger?..

Or a Sunny Thakoon?..

Hmm... I may have to aim for a slightly more achievable target where the wardrobe is concerned. Ho Hum. Well, it's nice to dream isnt it?

Fantastic Indeed

If you have kids, if you dont have kids, see this film. It is such a refreshing change to the G rated genre, clever, funny and stylishly filmed. It was easy to spot that it was the work of Wes Anderson, it certainly had that Royal Tenenbaum vibe.

I'd never heard of the book, it must be the only Roald Dahl book i missed, I have no idea how that happened! However, the smallest boy person informs me that it was a bit different to the book, but that he really liked the movie. Medium and biggest boy persons also rated it highly.

This one gets 4 and a half hearts from me ♥♥♥♥♡

Silly Season Part Two

We had such a fantastic NYE. I have always thought that a masquerade party would be the perfect compromise between the utter annoyance of having to come up with an fun, witty, unique, comfortable, flattering, inexpensive costume and the ennui of the 'every saturday night with a few friends and an esky of beer in the backyard shindig'. So, a masquerade party is what we had. And it was fun!

The boy person and I were the only ones with home made masks, and these were bit rushed on the night before but nonetheless did the job. In actual fact I was quite pleased with the very simple solution I came up with for his mask… I painted a plain mask in Blackboard paint so that he and others at the party could decorate it as the night went on.

I made these cucumber cups with homemade boursin after seeing the recipe at design sponge and they were absolutely divine, great for a warm summers evening…

Towards the end of the evening (or should that be, 'as the sun was coming up'…) this is pretty much what everything was looking like, a blur of dancers, sparklers, music and laughter. A wonderful start to 2010 indeed!

Silly Season Part One

Christmas day was a huge hit at our house, we had such a great time… I'm going to let the pictures do the talking though, because quite frankly, i'm still knackered.


And Family…
