Monday Musings – 22nd July

Well hello there. Another freezing Monday morning was had here in Perth. One of those ones that made you think “socks are ok with my heels, aren’t they”? I braved the cold though and maintained my sartorial reputation. I cannot wait for Spring to have sprung.

Any Game of Thrones fans out there? I pretend to my husband I am not – so then I earn tv points. But secretly I enjoy it. I have been spending my points on House of Cards and The Newsroom. I need to get stuck into a new show though. Any recommendations? Not reality please….I watch enough of that drivel as it is.

Anyway, if you are a fan of GOF you should enjoy this tribute to its dead characters. To the music of Boyz II Men. What’s not to love eh?

Hopefully Joffrey will be in there soon – he scares me so bad!


When you’re finished why not head over to ebay and bid on this piece of history?


And stop the lights!!!!!!!!!!

Do we care?? Do we want to play a game and guess a name? How awesome would it be if she picked some wanky celeb name… North. J

Which leads me nicely into the fact that I am too old for this crap! I no longer understand queuing for bars, chart music, shots…..I am a buzzkill. L


Is it just me or do Dorothy Perkins do the best cheap work dresses?

This is only $30 – very doable for a work / evening dress?

I also need a dress for a wedding – in December – but not sure that one above is dressy enough. Or flashy enough! I think these are more wedding appropriate

This is what I would like to look like – but never do! Ellie reckons it’s all in the accessories; I need a fascinator!


And I’ll leave you with these rules And a golden rule I think all offices should have. Especially here in the land down under. Vegemite should be banned from all work areas – it stinks!!!

Have a good one.



Monday Musings….or how to avoid working.

Monday Morning – two words that can spark fear in the minds of 99% of the working population. So let’s get you smiling before we start off on what is distracting me from my inbox this morning.


Ah, I love this show.

It appears that Kim Kardashian has named her daughter North . As she will be using her father’s surname, her full name is North West.  Aw, thanks Kim & Kanye, that is just awesome! There was a chance you could have picked a normal name but true to form the Kardashians don’t disappoint. In related news Kanye has managed to offend people with Parkinson’s disease…..Kanye = a twat

If you are over 35 and want to have a baby you HAVE to read This Article Apparently “The widely cited statistic that one in three women ages 35 to 39 will not be pregnant after a year of trying is based on an article published in 2004 in the journal Human Reproduction. Rarely mentioned is the source of the data: French birth records from 1670 to 1830.”  There’s so much more interesting reading – and some of it might even make a woman – gasp – optimistic!  Hurray – I can relax!

However if you do have a child, work a normal job and live in NYC Good Luck


7 out of the 9 writers on Mad Men are women. And they all look bad ass.



How awesome are these!




This is why I don’t think Australia is cold

Weddings & Facebook = classy



Now Back To Work!!!


Have a good one.
