The thing I love about Two is that he was more clownish and less serious that One. He played the recorder and wore stovepipe hats when he could. And he had these awesome pops of colour, like his red bow tie and vibrant pocket scarf.
I avoid a lot of mushy, touchy-feely, deep and meaningful blogs and this isn’t really going to be one but I wanted to warn you straight up.
I used to be a blood donor. I hope to be a donor again one day. The blood bank is picky.
That being said they do need donors, and lots of them. 1 in 3 Australians will need blood or a blood product in their lifetime but only 1 in 30 donate. There’s something wrong with the maths there people.
It’s a figure that hasn’t altered much in the 10 years since I first gave blood.
So to encourage all of you to go out and save a life I’ve compiled some lists.
People who will need blood:
I am well aware of the fact that I haven’t shared all of my international adventures with you yet, time will come. But I did want to share with you some of my favourite adventures that have happened since then.
Travelling has made me look at life in a different way. Things that were once boring and mundane are now images of home and comfort. The design in everyday things is very beautiful and deserves just as much of my attention as the images of foreign trees and ships and people. Even me.
I wrote a guest post on the Lemon Meringue for my Mum over on my friend 2paw’s blog. It should be up in the next couple of days! You should check it out.
My new favourite trend is the Palazzo Pant! It’s in no way a new fashion trend, more of a return to fashion. But I’m loving it! Coco Chanel love a Palazzo and I tell you what she’s the standard! So here are some Palazzo’s I’m lusting over. I’m thinking I’ll need them all. Palazzo’s are my new best pant friend!
ASOS Curve Palazzo. Gorgeous!
I know I’ve been very remiss in my posting lately and I have no full reason why except I’ve been rushing around like a mad hatter since I got back.
I wonder if any of you out there is blog land know of any great blog review sites. I’m often desperately hunting for new (and old) books to read and rarely do my tags on the library search engine come up with anything good. I have become a little addicted to smart bitches trashy books but I’m looking for more than just romance novels.
I’ve recently started reading Hush Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick and I have to say I’m quite enjoying it. Despite the obvious similarities to the phenomenon of Twilight, Hush Hush appears to be rather a lot better than the “inspiration”(?). But how was I to know that this teen romhorrorfantasy would be up my alley? Book reviews are very low on the ground among today’s magazines and newpapers and often they only review a particular type. So my hunt is on.
If you know of a delightful little blog that reviews a whole manner of books please let me know. I can’t have my blog do all of the things I want it to. Perhaps I need to refocus my ideas.
