The Beauty Dept.

Lauren Conrad is the epitome of awesome.

She's teamed up with her hair and make up artists to gift us their beauty secrets

to help us look more gorgeous than we already are! I am so damn stoked about this website!

In my eyes this girl can do no wrong.

Kim Kardashian is the shiz

I can't help it, I love the Kardashians. I just can't get enough. So I am super excited to see Kim's wedding in October and gaze in awe at the lavishness of a wedding I couldn't afford in a million years! That girl is living the dream and I think all of us Kardashian lovers out there would agree we just watch on in fascination of a life we all wish we could one day have. Some people are just born so damn lucky! If you want wedding inspiration try... http://www.greenweddingshoes.com/

Wow - Hello Summer

I really dont know how the time has flown. Getting my blog off the ground has been put on the backburner as life has played itself around me.

I have been working on a few exciting things, crafty bits and pieces that I will put some photos up of at some stage.

I have been doing alot of photography and have welcomed daylight savings with open arms and I couldnt resist the urge to take some summer pics!

The picture above is at Brooksville, Christchurch.. this suburb is a beautiful beachside "town" about half an hours drive out of the city. The whole suburb was badly damaged in the Feb Earthquake and are campaigning to be Green Zoned so they don't have to move from their homes as they are all currently in the Red Zone (possible demolition) where the ground is just too unsafe to build on.

On a happier note....


Something designy to look at... I guess I have been sidetracked from the point of my blog for a long time, so why not throw in some wedding invitations! I did these for my friend Nicky who got married a few weeks ago. Very beautiful garden wedding. Here is a selection of the invite options I gave her. When you design an invite for someone, you have to remember your audience. Nicky is a farmers daughter not a city girl... and her wedding was on her family farm and she wanted it to be red and girly. She ended up choosing the invite with the bride and grooms feet and adored it.

ChCh Earthquake Day 11

Back to work I went on Wednesday for half a day. I have to say that normality really worked a treat. I had been battling some guilt and sleepless nights and then for those 8 hours at work Thurs & Fri, I managed to give my brain a break from all the thinking it had been doing.

Seeing all my colleagues rally around and offer help was really humbling. My cousin, a police officer from the North Island came to visit, he's here helping out along with police and soldiers from all over the world. He said he's working 14-15 hour shifts. What a hero.

I don't want to post any more depressing posts, because the news is depressing enough as it is, I guess it just feels better to write it down it helps me get it off my shoulders for a little bit.

I just wish I knew when the aftershocks will stop and we can start to rebuild our city that is mostly non existant. If anyone overseas is reading this, just try and imagine if your city centre didn't exist and it was cordoned off by army tanks and about 4 soldiers on each street entrance into the city. Most suburbs didn't exist because all the homes have crumbled, other streets are deserted and no body is living there. The suburbs that were blessed enough not to be destroyed have 3 families plus living in them.

I said I wasn't going to be sad !! sorry...

Today is a sunny saturday and the ground and air is still. What to do with my day.... limited options so I think I will stay at home, and try and read some trash mags and have a cold beer in the backyard.

Yeah... that sounds nice.
