What a week

So far my house was invaded by tiny little children from Queensland and beyond - This being my sister and my nephews Isaac and Jack, then my brother and Danni with their entourage Tomi, Thomas, Ava and Jess came for a visit. My room was packed full 'o' fun stuff. Beads flying everywhere from the girls and Jack while the other 3 played the play station and hogged the bed.

I love it.

Then the weekend struck me down with a twisted/sprained ankle. Last few minutes of the final game before the Semi Finals. Not. Cool. Currently my RIGHT foot is swollen and blue. If it was my left I guess it would have been better as I would be able to drive - but no. That would be too easy. Ha!

I guess it will all be okay in the end... but until then, I will suck it up and love being waited on.

Where is my bell, I need a coffee.

In other news...
My mannequin arrived in the post today! I am so excited. Mum and I assembled her and she looks marvelous. I can't wait to get started. I am currently thinking of a name for her.

I have also been told that I am attending a wedding in 2 weeks (well the 8th August). One of Chris's friends has come back from Germany to get married so it should be fun! I was KIND OF hoping I would get to buy a new dress - but with little notice, my great budgeting (so far!) and this ankle - I might have to give it a miss and wear a dress I already own. Shock. Horror.

But then again, I might change my mind and blame the weather for me having to buy a new dress.

NEW: HiLo by Bonds

I just LOVE this commercial. I could give them a run for their money in paddycake and down by the banks!

A much needed ebay purchase

Honest. I REALLY did need this. Plus, my mum always wanted one - so its like a gift in a way, right?

I can't wait to get started on some of my designs. It sure will be interesting! I also really need to try out those patterns Jenny lent me awhile ago. I am such a slacker.

Oops she did it again

No, not Britney... me.

I really have been saving my dollars. I haven't purchased anything that was not on the 'necessary' list. I have also been taking lunch AND coffee to work. I think The Coffee Man might not like me as much anymore. I was a regular.

Miss Universe

Congratulations to Miss Venezuela, Dayana Mendoza...
My picks from the top 10 2008 contestants: Miss Australia, Miss Colombia and Miss Kosovo.

I obviously had to go check out the other girls we didn't really get to see... Just look at Miss Finland's national costume... it looks like it came right out of a Chanel show. So cute!

And as soon as I saw Miss Singapore, my mouth dropped. I have sketched this dress!

And last buy not least, Miss Thailand received best national costume... However my vote goes to Miss Brazil.

The axe finally falls...

When I signed into MSN and the "Live Today" window opens - What do I see....

"After eight successful seasons and 1,316 episodes, Ten today announced that Big Brother will not be returning in 2009," the Network Ten statement reads. "The 2008 season finale will air on Monday 21 July."

FINALLY. That's all I can say.

Also, check out the new Beads by Aadore blog where I will post updates regarding my jewellery and other crafts that are starting to itch at the surface (I need more hours in a day - seriously).

Also, be watching Arena at 8:30pm - Project Runway. Yeah, it's not as good as the others, but I am totally obsessing over Petrova! I hope she wins.

Happy First of July and Canada Day

I have my heater so high in my room it feels like Summer. It truly is awesome!

I am disappointed about the outcome of tonights Final epsiode of Australia's Next Top Model. Like Kirstie Clements said "We have standards here at Vogue...". I wonder what the article will be about.
PS. It better not be the September issue... and well done Charlotte.

Ahhh Dramas... I just can't wait for Americas Next Top Model! hehe

Above: Love it. It's definitely Oyster Material!
and Below: One of my favourite photos of Alex.

I'm going to go back to sipping my Miso Soup, Dexter and jewellery making.
