Have not dented it as much as I wish this farr I have only read 2 (harry potter and well not sre what t was called now)
am currently working on 'the devil wears prada (forgot it at home) and instead I decided that maybe I should finally read the ninth cave by Jean M auel. So said and done
As you might have guesed by the end of summer my total no of books will be 2½ (maybe 3) since I onlyy have 7 days left and well let me tell you this is not a book that you finish in a day or two (hardcopy 750 pages it weighs a ton) and the weather have not bin fair for reading in sun either.
Have read a little bit here and there since midsummer (potter and this other book hd to go first though)
Its good though
SO only a couple of moe weeks w an empty floor (have only lived like this since may but...)
it is a convertible couch that turns into a double bed so I'll have some space for my dear friends to sleep :D
Started when I woke up that my left eye was sore so had to take contacts out before breakfast and well thought it would be as usual that by the time I've had breakfast, got dressed etc it would be cleared up & thatt I could put contacts back in. That was not the case so I had to wear glasses all day. Problem you who know me also know how light sensitive I am and ofcourse today was a day when sun was out. So hade the choice between sunglasses= totally blind or glasses= blinded by sun. Did of the mixture of the two which would have bin ok if my eyes would have stopped tearing aytime soon. Had to go to pharmacy and by eye drops and try to fix it. Now 8.30 at night they are finally feeling ok.
Then good bit: found out my birthday present from mom & dad. Am on my way to order it now (will tell you when it arrives or on my birthday dependiing on what comes first)
Rest of day was spent with dad trying to find a nicelooking suit for the wedding. After bin in 4 stores we found not oe but TWO really nice looking ones and let me tell you he is worse than a kid when it comes to deciding. BUT thank god he is suited to for the wedding to and ofcourse I pcked ou the tie for him (Who else would dare?????)
Rest of day I have spent in bed not feeling good, think I have a horrible cold coming and thats why my eye is bothering me. So both allergies and sore eye at same time I feel so gorgeous at the moment I swear.
pink jacket, grey bag & pnk ballerinas

here is a pic (googled) on my idea of a Burrito that u can have either meat or vegetarian as you wish. I thought I ordered a vegetarian burrito today (that is what it said i menu)
when meal arived it reminded me more of an enchilada with sauce and cheese ontop that had bin melted in oven ie it was cooked in oven before served (in my world that is an enchilada) and I was really disapointed over my meal tasted alright
BUT it was not a BURRITO as I had ordered and imagined.
Next time I will dicuss the swedish wiew of a Nacho plate
1) white shortsleved suit jacket (vila) 50% off
2) Congac coloured leather skirt from a secocnd hand shop
3) Well was looking for a black suitjacket when mom realised that she might have one at home after her unle that should fit me. Said and done we got home she looked it up & its a prfect boxy fit for a male sit jaket on me. So happy for that one & it didn't cost me a cent
(ok ok my VISA did not get raped today but moms did)
But she was in luck managed o find a gorgeous dress in a shop none of us thought it was possible. A store tthat has more of my sizes and styles than hers.
Did some shopping to bt will show you that later on (need to get the pis of camera etc)
Oh yhea today my bloody nails started falling of so I have 2 fingers w midget nails now.
Recycling an old pic due to same out fit as that day

Looked through topshps site and these are the bits that I want to get my hands on
the black biker leather jacket and these gorgeous boots.
No I still haven't got a black leather jacket, only my nature white one nd starting to feel that a black would be a good compliment to it.
My new love. and hold your horeses its not a $500 pair, but a $30 (on sale) that have struck my fancy.They are from cheap monday and belive me if I still were in my old party habits there would be no discussion they would be living in my closet by now. But since there is a complete absence (lmost) of party nights (we r talking less than one a month) and guys to date I have no occasionb to wear them :(
Just can't decide when I would be able to wear them , so until then they get to stay on the shelf. rather putmy money on a pair of black boots and gumboots.
Yes I think I actually may need a pair of gum boots this fall if summer is anything to go buy.
Yes my holidays is almost over & guess what it feels both good and bad to go back to work. I like the organised bit with work where you now what you will do during the days, the decent paycheck most of all.
But down side have to work my ass of until mid october untl i get a couple of days rest again...
But in august I have plenty of things to look forward to my birthdays, a 50ths bash, a wedding, start tutoring freshmen (okok maybe belong to nervous pile)
and I'm quite sure that time will fly and suddenly its christmas.

1) waiting for 2 parcels/ letters to arrive any day now- so as soon as anybody enters the stairwell outside front door I suspect that my mailbox wil rattle and these items will fall on my floor. 2 days have passed and NOTHING has arrived NOTHING at all.
2) waiting for 2 e-mails to drop into my inbox- work realated and they never arrive (ARGH)
3) Waiting for a phone cal lor sms relating one of these emails, but nothing all silence.
Why just give me one of these things and all would be happy cheery (who am I kidding want it all)

Still reading Potter should be done by tonite
UPDATE 2- 1 ONE Letter has arrived, but nothing else, starting to get a bit worried that i'll mis sthe parcels and phone call by tomm.

Lipgloss bitch asked for what makeup favorites we are looking forward to when the fall collectons come ot in stores. Here are some of the thigs that is on my must have list at the moment.
I'm quite sure that there is muchc more in the fall collections that I want, but these are the bits that have struck my fancy this week:
- Chanel - Les 4 Ombres Palette i Garden Party
- Lancôme - Le Crayon Kohl Oriental Duo
- Lancôme - Le Magnétique Nail Polish
- Clinique - Brush-On Cream Liner Graphite
- Essie- in the bahamas-cove copper
- MAC- matte 2- Clarity
- MAC- Matte2 - Graphology
- NARS- Modern Odyessy- Brazil
- MAC- C-shock (most of the eyeshadows)
The thing is that there is supposed to be the same setting on both, bt after todays walk there is an obvious differene. Started them at 0 at the same time and checked them both standingstill after was done. You can see the difference below. The steps aren't that different to that will pass, but I walked a km further on mine than hers: A whole bloody km longerm how short are the steps on hers??? And the difference in kCal burned we aren't gonna talk about. On mine and 85 kg person burned 342 kcal, while on hers same 85 kg person only burned of 152 kcal. For me the kcal doesn't count because I have nevr weighed 85 kg not even close. But this was a test to c how different they are.
Now i just wish that I had mine so that I coud check that one against these 2. The distane I walked is close to the 3.7 km. walked the running tracck 3 laps and the laps are a little longer than 1 km each.
- 5304 steps
- 3.71 km
- 342.6 kcal
- 5273 steps
- 2.64 km
- 152.8 kcal

And being a person that tend to dink a lot w guys and my party twin, well we soon discovered the lovely thing called BUNABERG RUM. First time I thought it was horendous how could anybodyy drink this shit. BUt as the years wore on a fond relationshp grew between me and my rum. Mind you it has to be bundy (okok bacardi is good to BUT NOT THE SAME).
Then whiskey with lemon lime bitter arrived. we r tight love it, but bundy rum and coke. Oh my love I will love and cherish you forever. Ashame that this rum is hard tot get outside Australia (hence i have to bunker up when I'm visiting)....
Another good thing, they sponsor the rugby, you can by them in cans mixed with either cola or lime (cola is the bomb) and apperently they have a beer to called dark& stormy (but who cares about beer we are talking about bundy)
The thing is I have a small bottle at home, dad has 4 L of it, where do u think that I spend most time drinking rum??? Yes you guessed right at mom & dads of course.
I have noticed though that drinking it outside Australia and withini it is not the same. As soon as I enter that beloved country I get a MAJOR craving for a bundy. I think i may be addicted. yes to both bundy & Australia!!

Well yet another day looking for a dress for mum, she has now given up and will pull out the sewing machine (YAY) ok ok that is for her. I need a skirt there were no doubts in my miind that she would make that for me. Hey we want it to look like a full dress not a 2 piece ass it would if i did it.
SO now comes the problem find right faric and pattern, okok a hell of a lot easier than what finding a dress for a person that is over 6 feet tall. Yes it runs in the family and we are on the short side of it. I'm a whole 1 cm shoter than mom (and its is important) because that makes me the short ass in the family (excluding my two youngest nieces).
To honur my mood and the weather I wore:
tischa- acne jeans (sample)
jeans- sass & bide (limited ed -03)
belt- mango the free one
white high top sneakers
grey slouchy bag (wil get photo of i one day)
ps. seems that I have rubber hands ds.
Yes I now there is national geographic and other science (nerdy) magazines, but not one about just wild animals. But the otherday while at spermarket I bumped into this one and well halfway through its ok for my teacing in high school. But the Zoologist in my blood screams a little over it. Need to find a more scientific mag also.
National georaphic is great, but I will admit that 90% of the time I'm like a kid.... just look at the cute pics and skip the readding, because there is SOOO much of t from time to time. Only the interesting bits are read.
I will give this a prope review when I have read a couple of issues. The first one usually have some cosmeic errors etc etc. Please let this be something that I can use with my students at work.

To get the perfect look you need good underwear that is A and O in clothes fitting properly. That means that you have to suffer through some thigh pulling/lifting garments. But whhatt don't you suffer through to get that perfect look?
While nderwear shopping I found this underskirt for pencil skirt for hold on 3 euro from Twilft. Couldn't resist it at all....
The thing is I could wear this as just a skirtr one night if the mood struck me and I had the right upper garment.
BUT underskirts are so good since there are no lumps and bumps from neither underwear not cellulites or fat thighs. Everything is tukedin place where it should be for the best effect...
Well the good it in then end was when I walked into the J. Lindeberg outlet and my love for sample clothes have not decreased after I found this gorgeous dress. It like a super thight short thing with a longer WIDER dress above that have tons of starps. Yes that many shoulder starps its a litle hard tot get it on. BUT hey its sample it was cheap & now its in my clcoset. Just need an occasion when to wear it. Hmmm.......
Why have so many of my friends kids and don't wanna go out??? Maybe tomm night or next weekend. Please let me wear it soon. (I'm in love with a dress)
p.s. almos bought a windestopper at the golfshop, but the huge golflabel stopped me. Have some issues w golf clothes (on me) might have to do with both my parents are golf freaks d.s
Well a break today:
Got to wear nice clothes:
jaket: my loved denim jacket (a new fav)

back to the top, after being reminded about the t-shirt & finding it on ebay i decided to contact the company, Cake clothing & unforlunately sold out at the moment. But they were printing more. YES YES YES
Photo: Cake loves you
1) In april Bjooti wrote about using an eyeliner brush + water + your regular eyeshadows = Superb eyeliners in all colour of the Rainbow. Me who is a sucker for eyeliers okok its all about eyes for me. Have almost 150 different eyeshadows (hmm sensing an addiction here)
2) Blodgorf goodman wrote a while ago about using the brush from maxfactor MAX with her diorshow blackout and guess what this is ONE thing that I'm gonna try as soon as I run out of my everyday mascara,. Because the bloody brush with that mascara is just WAY to big for me.
Yes I have cut down to only walk 2 laps instead of 3 but that is more because I have got out of bed a bit late and don't wanna spend all day on that track walking. So instead I walk 2 laps in the eveing to (If i have time that is).....
On todays agenda there is:
Tan a bit
Paint some more windows. did 8 yesterday and today I will paint around the doors. Apperently some windows need some work done before I can start on them (Bugger).
Looks like mom is on a shopping mood, she has planed a full shopping weeked with me.

You can find this adorable bag at Zara and well I just think I have to check it out. Immediately if not sooner. Hmm More realistic like this weekend.
While we are talking bags I think i might have found my new love. That could replace my black esprit bag.
It has it all:
colour (i like blak bags bown on pic)
Think it might be a life llong commitment to it also.
where to get hold of
Oh it is a Marc by Marc Jacobs bag.
Think I might have to start a future bag fund. My esprit should last a while loger and in the meantime I should save up some cash for my dream bag.
phoo: marc jacobs, Zara
I ended up getting some alcohol:
Passionfruit schnapps (btw stay away from the forest fruit one its lethal)
tons of minibottles of apple, sourapple, cerry and plumschnapps (not on photo)
Thi adorable bambi top at mango & the top who lost its colour.
They had so many adorable bambi items that If I would have bin absolutely mad I could have filled my suitcase w only bambi stuff. ut i left some for my friend to get me when my birthday arrives (hint hint)
btw should dig out my dear bambi bag I used to live in. best study bag ever.
Got my around ordering it today (okok booked it since not out until sat) Bit short of cash but don't have to pay it until next month and well. Won't get my hands on it util I go home next week anyhow.
Gonna be nice reading it at one point though when ever that will be. Looks like I'll see the latest movie this weekend to.
I'm will be all pottered out by the end of this month ( yes know that we are only half way but...)
They don't have it where I live at the moment but in neighbourig cities so I am pleased. Maybe its good that its not to close for me to get i. Would no good for neither economy nor helth!!!

Pirates of he Caribbean- at world's end.
And what did I think about it?? Well I liked it. a bit long but definately worth the money & the ending well the ending was ok. Good atually although sitting through the end to see the final scene was just suffering. A torture to be honest.
Now I'm just gonna wait until DVD box is released so that I can get them all on DVD together.
I give it 4 bambies. an't put finger on why not a 5. Will come back to that at a later point.
Now sleep is on the agenda I'll try to be as good as this morning and go for a morning stroll in the forest ie. powerwalk
