My Office furniture


I am starting to pack away some things now,, our house was on the market for 2 1/2 months and finally we accepted an offer and we are ready to move on,,, I ma just hoping that everything will run smoothly and the turn over will be finalised soon...
So the other day I was in my home office and starting to go through my files and piles of paper so I can see what needs to be purged and kept...

I was having a close look at my office furniture  and I am quite disappointed because there are heaps of scratches on my desk...
Since my furniture is high gloss the scratches and dirt can be easily spotted.. I am also worried about moving them because for sure it will be hard to move  and carry without scratching it...

So, I might consider  asking someone to polish it or redo the paintwork, oh well I'll see how we go , I am just hoping that it wont have any more damage since I love that polish look on it....

Getting Ready for the new season

As the weather warms up and the new season range of Spring /Summer collection of clothes are on display,, people are more happy to dish their jumpers and bulky clothes to get the new wardrobe for the coming season..

As you watch the telly there are heaps of ads about weight loss , diet pills  and detox. Yup its that time of the year when men and women starts panicking about the extra pounds they've gained during winter time .. and who can blame them.. Look at these gorgeous Cossies!!!!

It's Jennifer Hawkin's COZI range......


In an exclusive interview with The Daily Telegraph, Hawkins said she was thrilled to finally be able to talk about her brainchild which was borne out of increasing frustration at trying to find the perfect bikini and an insatiable urge to tinker with designs currently on the market.

"I'm in a bikini a lot - I'm working in one," she said.

"I'd see a bikini somewhere, wear it and then want to change it in some way or another, whether it be the colour or the feel of it, or the fit. I just wanted to give it my own little touch."

Hawkins said she had kept her girlfriends in mind when designing the range and believed that the sizes and styles in the range catered for all Australian women.

"I've got a girlfriend and she's tiny and she wanted a bit of padding in there and I've got another girlfriend with a really big bust and no butt and she wanted something that would make her boobs understated and her booty a bit bigger. There's something in there for everyone."

Hawkins pitched the idea of her own swimwear range to Myer store bosses late last year and, not surprisingly, they loved it.

The swimwear range, which includes bikinis and one-pieces in a variety of colours and patterns in sizes 8 to 16, features kaftans and cover-ups and will sold exclusively in Myer stores.

Beauty




The Sydney-born, Townsville-raised 21-year-old model finished fourth.

Venezuelan 18-year-old Stefania Fernandez won the title in The Bahamas on Sunday, continuing the South American nation's domination of the event.

Last year's winner, Dayana Mendoza, of Venezuela , presented Fernandez with her crown.

Venezuelan beauties have won the pageant six times.

Finch's odds shortened dramatically in the days before the event, making her one of the favourites and she lived up to the hype, looking stunning in the swimsuit and evening gown rounds and earning a place in the final five.

The Miss Universe title came down to the final question, a hurdle that has derailed frontrunners and immortalised them on YouTube.

When her name was called to take centre stage for her question, Finch took a deep breath, placed her left hand on her waist and waited.

"Tonight you were judged on how you looked in a bathing suit," Valeria Mazza, the judge selected to probe Finch with a question, asked.

"In some countries women aren't allowed to wear a swimsuit. How does that make you feel?"

Finch began with an "ummmmm", but then leapt on the question, telling the judges and tens of millions of viewers around the world that wearing a swimsuit was a "beautiful thing".

"It gives everyone of us the chance to show our figures and our toned bodies and what we have worked hard for and I think our bodies are a beautiful part of a woman and we should definitely, you know, show them to the rest of the world," Finch said.

The crowd liked the answer but apparently it was not enough to score the Miss Universe crown.

Finch's fourth, from 83 contestants, was the best result for an Australian since Hawkins won in 2004.

The strong result is expected to earn the model millions of dollars in endorsement deals, with lingerie giant Victoria's Secret reportedly interested in offering her a contract and department stores and cosmetics companies lining up to sign her.

Finch is also believed to have signed on to be part of Celebrity MasterChef Australia.

The first runner-up at this year's pageant was Miss Dominican Republic, Ada Aimee de la Cruz.

Miss Kosovo, Droga Ganusha, was third and Miss Puerto Rico, Mayra Matos Perez, was fifth.

Remember this Koala??

Sam the koala to be stuffed, displayed


Australia's most loved koala will be stuffed and displayed in the Melbourne Museum following her death during surgery.

The image of Sam the koala holding hands with Country Fire Authority (CFA) firefighter David Tree and sipping from his water bottle in the aftermath of the Black Saturday bushfires was beamed around the world as a symbol of hope in the days following the disaster.

Sam's bushfire injuries had healed but the four-year-old animal was put down on Thursday during major surgery to remove cysts associated with chlamydia, a life-threatening disease that causes cervical infection and has ravaged Victoria's koala population.

Victorian Premier John Brumby confirmed on Friday that Sam's carers had accepted an offer by the museum to preserve and display the koala to the public, News Ltd newspapers report.

"We will never forget the people and communities affected by those fires and we will never forget the courage and kindness of the firefighters and volunteers who helped them," Mr Brumby said.

"The story of Sam will help us to understand and remember the devastation that the events of February 2009 had on the people of this state and their extraordinary determination to recover and move forward with their lives."

Museum Victoria's exhibitions director Robin Hirst said it was vital Sam joined iconic racehorse Phar Lap at the museum.

"She is associated with a very important image from those terrible times."

Wise Shopping

Nowadays people are very conscious about  what to do to save the environment ..

There are lots of tips and things to do to help and be a part of it...

We are all aware of Recycling....  But how about Green shopping ????

I found some tips from Earth 911 regarding Green Shopping and its very informative ....

Smart shopping habits are key to decreasing your carbon footprint and are often more gentle on the wallet.

Before You Go
1. Make a Shopping List and Stick to It.
2. Take Reusable Shopping Bags
3. Carefully Plan Your Trip.
4. Carpool.

At The Store
1. Buy Products in the Largest Size You Can Use
2. Patrol the Packaging.
4. Buy Local

Online Shopping
More and more people are choosing to shop online. Stay green at your computer screen with these tips:

If buying a gift for someone who lives far away, ship the item directly to the recipient’s home rather than your home first.
Order multiple items that can be shipped together in one purchase to decrease packaging material and transportation costs. To have ten pounds of packages shipped by overnight air uses 40 percent less fuel than driving yourself round-trip to the mall, according to the Center for Energy and Climate Solutions.
Ship products through the U.S. Postal Service because it is most likely coming to your neighborhood to deliver mail anyway.
Recycle or reuse all shipping material.

So do your bit and help save the Earth...
