generic blog title #12

2 comments Friday, September 17, 2010
I've been such a slack blogger in the last month or so. This is due to being super busy but mostly being lazy.

Anyway, a lot has happened in the last few weeks..

I started an internship with my local Federal Member of Parliament. 
I got a new job and quit my old job that I'd been working at for almost 4 years!
Australia voted and the winner was Labor.

I actually got to meet Julia Gillard, our Prime Minister! I have nothing but positive words about her. She was very sweet, lovely and easy to talk to. 

Anyway, enough talk about me and enough talk about politics- you are probably all asleep by now!

How have you all been and what is new in your lives? x

Australia Votes.

5 comments Wednesday, August 18, 2010

If you’re currently residing in Australia you’d know that the Federal Election is being held this Saturday 21st August. It’s come down to the wire- Julia Gillard (ALP) vs Tony Abbott (LNP).

Please don’t waste your vote. People in other countries go to war over their right to vote. It’s something that we shouldn’t take for granted.  It so depresses me when people say that they’re just going to tick any name or put in a blank ballot sheet (Mark Latham, I’m looking at you).

As the anti Abbott propaganda all over my blog may suggest, I will not be voting for the Coalition on Saturday and I urge you to do the same.  I’m not saying that you have to vote for Labor/Julia Gillard, I’m just saying don't vote for Liberals/Tony Abbott.

Tony Abbott is living in the 1850's. He has no idea about anything and is currently acting like a 5 year old by refusing a debate on the economy. He's refusing this because he has NO economic plan for Australia. 

Please watch this video, it only goes for 1 minute and will really open your eyes up to the backwards, racist, sexist and brainwashed culture that Abbott wants for this nation.

Please, please, please don't vote for Tony Abbott.

I also think that this anecdote is relevant.

'Tony Abbott, the man who on Sunday may be in charge of Australia's $1.3 trillion economy, actually slept through the most important economic vote in living memory. That's right, as the Federal Parliament debated Federal Labor's stimulus package, Mr Abbott was asleep in his office.'

It's that time of week again, girlies (and guys too of course. I don't think any guys read this though. Actually, if you're a guy -and not Tony Abbott- could you please leave a comment, thanks x) for me to inflict my musical preferences upon your unwilling, innocent souls.

What sort of music do you like? I'm pretty varied in my music taste but I must say that death metal/screamo and rap will never have any place in my life. Yick.

Lily Allen is up the duff!

Lily Allen and partner Sam Cooper have confirmed that they'll soon be hearing the pitterpatter of tiny feet! Though, I'm sure there'll be copious amounts of screaming before the pitterpattering occurs.

The couple say that they are "absolutely delighted" and that Lily recently had her 3 month scan.

I'm willing to bet that her baby's first word is more than likely going to be 'fuck'.

Congratulations to the happy couple :)

tumultuous travelling.

3 comments Sunday, July 11, 2010

I've just returned from overseas, not only with a delightful illness but with a selection of questions and queries floating around my mind. Questions and queries that concern the common traveller.

1. Why is it that as soon as the seatbelt light on the airplane is switched off after landing, everyone flings their seatbelts off and launches themselves out of their seats? They then stand in the aisle for at least 10 minutes before the doors are opened. I'm really thinking that there must be some sort of competition 'Let's see which psychotic can get in the aisle the quickest'. These lunatics just need to calm down.

2. Why do people insist on crowding around the baggage carousel like retarded seagulls? Sure, they might get their luggage before anyone else but if their bags aren't the first out (which 99% of the time they're not) they block the other 400 people from getting their bags. Is it really that difficult to stand back and then approach the carousel when your bags appear? Fuck.

3. Why, when in certain countries, do people feel the absolute need to bargain prices down? It happened while I was in China (and also when I've been to Bali and Fiji in the past), is it really necessary? Sure, sometimes you might find something really overpriced and in that instance bargaining is fine. I think it's ridiculous when people bargain prices down when they're probably saving $1.50. That $1.50 to us isn't any extreme amount of money but to the person who owns the market stall the money they just got ripped off is probably a lot to them.

If anyone has answers to these questions, please let me know x

Farewell........... for just over a week.

1 comments Thursday, July 1, 2010
Hello lovelies!

Just thought I'd inform you all that I'm heading off to China tomorrow. I'm only gone for about 10 days but seeing as how the internet is ridiculously, ridiculously censored in China, I won't be able to read any of your wonderful blogs. I can't even get onto Facebook, Twitter or Hotmail- how will I survive?! 

I swear, if any major political/social changes occur in Australia while I'm overseas- I am going to throw a bowl of rice at someone.

I'm abnormally uncoordinated so this will be me in China:

Take care everyone, and I'll see you all soon :) x

Practise your kicking on Abbott, Julia.

1 comments Tuesday, June 29, 2010
A few short weeks ago, Julia Gillard claimed "There's more chance of me becoming the full-forward for the Dogs (Western Bulldogs) than there is of any chance of a change in the Labor Party". Exactly 7 days after that statement, there'd been a leadership spill in the Labor Party and the next morning, Julia Gillard was Prime Minister.

Personally, I want to see some sort of celebrity football match for charity being organised. It'd be great to see Julia out there on the field, playing full-forward. 

Damian Hale MP is slowly making all of our dreams come true by being the first stepping stone to Julia's prosperous career with the Western Bulldogs.

Julia Gillard is a bad influence. Apparently.


So the newspapers, radio, television and magazines have all made it very clear that our new Prime Minister Julia Gillard isn't married but is in a defacto relationship. We all know it. Do we care?                                                                

I certainly don't. 

Bettina Ardnt has published an opinion piece this morning through Fairfax Media, in which she suggests that Gillard could be a bad influence on women because she's not married.

"It's fine for Gillard - a 48-year-old woman - to live with her bloke. Yet as a popular role model for women, her lifestyle choice may influence other women into making big mistakes about their lives."

 "If Gillard chooses to play house with Tim Mathieson in the Lodge, this choice sends a strong message to the huge numbers of women who rightly admire her and seek to follow her example. A lifestyle suited to her particular needs may be riskier for many women and their children." 

 Sorry, I wasn't aware that we were still living in the 1950's.  

“Women's tiny reproductive window means they pay a high price for wasting precious breeding time in such uncertain relationships.”

This is assuming that all women want to get married and have lots of babies. Ms Gillard has made it clear that she does not want children, so if she doesn’t then maybe there’s other people that don’t too! Imagine that.

“Politicians today rarely question social trends, even when all the evidence is they are having negative social consequences. John Howard was the rare exception, when he went into bat for a child's rights to a father in the debate over single mothers and IVF.”

Yes, but John Howard’s view was that if you don’t have a married mother and father with three perfect children born inside wedlock, then you deserve to be locked up and have the key thrown away. His views were prejudice and he appealed to the highest form of snobbery and ignorance installed in today’s society. Howard is one of the people that refuse to accept the fact that times are changing and shock horror, we don't live in a world where Jane Austen novels shape our lives.

In addition to this, we are talking about Julia Gillard, the Prime Minister that doesn’t believe in a ‘big Australia’. If she really is ‘influencing’ people in their choice to not get married and have children, as Ardnt claims, then it sounds Gillard could be on to something here.

It’s no secret that I really admire and have a lot of respect for Julia Gillard. I may or may not choose to get married and have children one day, but if I were to put this down to being influenced by Gillard’s situation, in no way would I believe this to be a ‘bad influence’. Bettina Arndt seems to be suggesting in a very non subtle way TIM MATHIESON, YOU MUST MARRY JULIA GILLARD AT THIS INSTANT BECAUSE IF YOU DON’T, THEN AUSTRALIA IS DOOMED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Where do you stand? Are you influenced by Julia's decision to be in a defacto relationship or to have children? Do you think that she's a 'bad influence' on women?

Storm London Watches // Q&A

2 comments Friday, June 25, 2010
FASHION BLOGGER Q&A are giving fashion bloggers the chance to win a Storm London watch. To enter the competition, we're required to answer a few quick questions on our style inspiration.

1. The time you felt most inspired by fashion - your most inspiring fashion moment.
I don't think I have one moment in particular, I'm inspired by fashion all the time. Usually the most inspiring moments is when  I see someone with a great outfit on that you can tell isn't contrived or put together with the purpose of being "fashionable". 


2. The time you were proudest of your outfit or style.
I guess this is just in recent times when I've finally decided to dress for me and not for anyone else. I don't care if people hate what I wear. It's all about being comfortable in your own skin I think.


3. The time in fashion you would most like to return to.
This is such a difficult question because I love 1920's flapper style fashion, I love the psychedelic trends of the 1960's, the grunge dorkiness of the 1990's but I'll think I'll have to narrow it down and pick the 1970's.. big collars, platform shoes and disco fever!

clog it up.


Clogs by Chanel. I thought they were ridiculously ugly at first, but after seeing them on Alexa Chung and Miley Cyrus, I have changed my mind. They are ridiculously wonderful and I would very much like a pair of my own to stomp around in.

Thanks to Frazz for removing the obnoxious Perez graffiti from the Miley Cyrus photos :)

The different styles are varying in price from $1000 upwards... who wants to fork out for my pair? 

Chanel Clogs. What do you think? Love them or hate them?

Suck it up, Liberals.

3 comments Wednesday, June 23, 2010
All I'm going to say about the Labor leadership spill is that the saying 'be careful what you wish for' has never been truer for the Conservatives and their Murdoch cronies. Their panicky, hysterical crucifying of Rudd has ensured that through Gillard, it will be a Labor victory at the next election. The joke is on them.

What I Wore - Fancy Dress Party edition.

3 comments Sunday, June 20, 2010
Hello lovelies! 
I haven't done a blog post for agesss, well. It was last Tuesday but my posts have been far from regular, so I apologise :)

This What I Wore post is slightly different from your average street style arrangement.
My stepsister recently turned 21 and to celebrate she had a fancy dress costume party, the theme was movie characters. I've already been to parties dressed as Alice in Wonderland, Catwoman, Wanda from Where's Wally, Michael Jackson (no I'm not kidding) and many more. I decided to go to this party dressed as Minnie Mouse!

I didn't get many photos on the night, so these two will have to suffice.

"I'm a mouse, duh!"

Minnie Mouse dress - eBay: $17 + $15 postage.

Ears & Bow headband - eBay: $8. A headband did come with the dress but it was a crappy one and the bow was tiny so I bought a proper Disney one separately.

Shoes- $5: I wasn't even going to try and attempt to get yellow shoes and was going to settle for red, but found the yellow ones at Rubi Shoes.

Gloves - $3: They're just cotton cleaning gloves from the supermarket.

What are you wearing this week? Or more appropriately, what fancy dress parties have you been to in the past and what did you dress up as?

dirty rich ♥

2 comments Tuesday, June 15, 2010
I received an email last week from a loverly lady called Gracie who is a representative of 'Dirty Rich', a brand new online store. I am very much convinced that Dirty Rich is my new favourite online shopping facility- and what's better is that it's based in Australia, hello cheap postage!

Dirty Rich stocks funky streetwear by Dimepiece, Married to the mob, Joyrich, Hellz Bellz & plenty of other amazing labels that are so difficult to get a hold of in the land down under.

Here's a couple of my favourite pieces:

I nearly died when I saw that floral blazer. I've been looking for one like that for AGES, so I am currently preparing my proposal of marriage to it. Ah-mazing. 

Check out the Dirty Rich website, and have a look at all the drool worthy clothes on there! Tell me which ones you loooove ♥

And, I couldn't resist adding in another photo of that wonderful blazer..

Poor Heidi Montag.

6 comments Wednesday, June 2, 2010
Showing before, during and after photos of Heidi Montag is a pretty popular theme in blogging these days and my blog is no exception to the rule as of right now.

I just cannot fathom what this poor girl must go through in order to feel the need to do this to herself. She was beautiful before she went under the knife. (Can I just remind you all that she is 23 years old?! TWENTY THREE!) 

According to Huffington Post Heidi's plastic surgeries include:
  • Mini Brow lift
  • Botox in forehead and frown area
  • Nose job revision
  • Fat injections in cheeks, nasolabial folds and clips
  • Chin reduction
  • Neck liposuction
  • Ears pinned back
  • Breast augmentation revision
  • Liposuction on waist, hips, inner and outer thighs
  • Buttock augmentation
