Amazing Collaboration

I came across the fantastic cover of Drew Barrymore and Ellen Page on the American Marie Claire. Ellen Page, star of Juno, looks absolutely fantastic with hair and makeup done! I loved these pics so much had to post them! They were doing a photoshoot for their upcoming movie, Whip It. If it has these two in it, I'm sure it's gonna be a great film.

I used to think that gym was the Devil reincarnated. Until I joined a gym. I actually enjoy this so-called gyming thing. I'm not gonna lie and say I'm a buff babe for doing so but I would hope I'm at least fit. Until I found out that I'm doing all the wrong things. For the past few months.
When I joined my gym I had an orientation where a trainer (who has a HUGE upper body, tiny legs and absolutely NO strength) showed me how all the machines worked and what I should be doing. I also asked other friends I knew that gymed what they did while they were there.
And while having quite an enlightening conversation with my best friend and our boyfriends (we all surprisingly enjoy gym) I found out I am doing all the wrong exercises. How lovely! And here I thought I was doing great. Wrong.
So now I'm basically starting from scratch. I'm getting a work out programme and everything.
I foresee a lot of pain in the week ahead...
Any gym bunnies out there?

Nope that is Not it

When buying hair dye, 99% of the time the colour on the box is NOT the colour your hair is after dying. Unless it's black. Black never fails to come out, well, black. But having dark brown hair, with a tinge of red which I have no idea where it came from, I decided to go lighter with the approaching summer. Once checking out the hideously high salon prices, I decided to do it myself at home. Yeah that didn't work out so well.
After leaving it in for longer than prescribed, and anxiously rinsing it out, my hair colour looked the same. Without the red. Now it just looks brown. And the tips look black. Why my hair goes black everytime I dye it is beyond me! But it happens.
Noting this lack of much-wanted change, I am starting to understand why salons charge such high prices. They actually know how to do this dying thing right!

News, Shoes and Reviews

So despite her frighteningly small frame, Nicole Richie, has popped out another baby. Nicole and her man Joel Madden have had a son, Sparrow James Midnight. After naming their daughter Harlow I had no doubt they would come up with a ridiculous name for their second child! Sparrow Midnight does have some kind of superhero ring to it though...

I am jones'ing for a pair of Gladiator heels!! When Gladiators first came out, I thought of them as monstrosities. Now I will do anything for a pair! I am determined to find some!

This week my man and I watched the new Johnny Depp movie, Public Enemies. First off, Johnny for two hours! Who wouldn't enjoy that? Plus he's lost all the horrid hair and makeup, aka his Jack Sparrow days although he can pull off eyeliner. A movie full of gunfire with a couple wisecracks from Johnny and it made a very good movie. Little long though. Won't admit it to my boyfriend but I started falling asleep in the end. Now don't assume it's of the movie, I always fall alsleep!

Off to find some heels. Where oh where can you be?

Good Advice Travels

While perusing through the Glamour mag, I came across some VERY interesting advice I thought I would share.

"Treat your man like a horse: feed him well and ride him hard."
Yes very wise words indeed. A work colleague had given the writer that advice. Can you imagine the awkward silence following that comment?
Good advice travels. One person will share it with another, who will in turn pass it on to someone else. There are some cliches, some outrageous, and some hilarious (like the previously mentioned one). I suppose the most overused one is Be Yourself. Well done for the creativity.
What would your best advice be?

Favoured Moment of the Week

This week hasn't been the most pleasant of weeks. My car decided to stop working all together, but it took a sneaky approach to this. It would start ok, then just when I got a safe distance from home, it would cut out. And would do so many times until I reached my destination, very haggard and frustrated.

But in this dilemma, I got to drive my mother's Nissan Sani, and what a wonderful ride that was! I drive a VERY small car but my heart belongs to big cars. I love nothing more than driving around, bigger and higher than everyone else. Maybe it's because I'm short, but man it's fun!

My dream car is a Range Rover, white or black. But the cost of petrol is making me loose faith in it.

I WILL own a big car at some stage in my life, and this week I got to live out my dream in between all the drama.
