Stuart and I have been invited to yet another dress-up party, for which the theme is "Monty Python". Mwah hah hah....should I go as the dead parrot?

“Ah look, Stuart, maybe you should just buy a ring now…..you could get a decent one for $300 at this price” I stated.
My sister and Stuart looked stunned.
Stuart countered that offer with, “I was planning to spend a lot more on a ring, woman”, and my sister shook her head and stated that whilst this shop did nice jewellery, you needed a ‘special’ wedding ring that stood the test of time.
It got me thinking…..she’s correct you know. If I have to wear that one ring for the rest of my life I want something elegant and beautiful, something that I can look at always and admire, and definitely something that represents the commitment.
I have to admit that the above coupled with Stuart and me talking about when we’d get married led to more investigation into the matter. I’ll further cement that stereotype (and that’s saying something, considering how non-girly I am) and admit that I want a gorgeous diamond ring.

I''ll take a size 6 in Blue Acid Frost or Ripped (above), thanks muchly.
Check out their site for more.
post edit: I contacted lee jeans about where to purchase the licks online or in Western Australia. They don't sell online (as they are a wholesaler) but in WA, the best places to try are Live, Surf Sports, Brownies and Murray Smith Surf Centre.

Her writing is haunting, gripping you in a vice. Sentences are not classically structured, and it gives the words even more depth and description. Pauline's writing is unlike any other and I have to be honest and admit here that nothing gets me more excited than the realisation that another post is up.
An excerpt from this girl's gorgeous writing (post titled 'meteors'):
"We spread the blanket on the wet grass and lie down.
The meteors shooting through the sky,
through the branches of the wet trees moving in the wind. He
sings to me.
I close my eyes.
"-tell me what it's like," I say.
and he puts his hand over my eyes, he pulls me against him.
"its like a snow globe," he says. I can feel him smile,
his teeth against my neck.
We laid there. The stars faded into the dawn. Dew on our faces.
The meteors, faint in the sky.
They were like lines traced into water, but I would remember where they were written."
Tell me you don't feel it, that the writing doesn't take hold of you and wrap its sinuous limbs around you, ensnaring you to its structure and prose and content, capturing you in a bewitching spell.
Go check out In My Body's House. Pauline is beautiful. Her work? Even more so.
In other news, I am ill once again. I'm beginning to worry about my immune system. I seem to have caught the majority of the onslaught of colds and flus that have bypassed us this winter. Still, it's a cold and nothing more. Just annoying is all. So instead of digging up outfit shots, I decided to share with you a picture I took a little while back. It's of Hillarys Boat Harbour and inspires serenity every time I look at it.
Hope it inspires you too.

The most embarassing thing about my outfit was the fact that the only thing I had to purchase specially for the party was the aviator sunglasses. Heh.

And did I mention that the price point is more consumer friendly? I didn't?? Frankly, its probably because I was too busy drooling. Over the model used for the SS10 campaign and the 'godessesque' feel to the look book. Woah!
I adore the above two pairs, and cannot for the life of me decide which I want more (and in which colour....more colours available in each style)!
