If music be the food of love.....

In this world there are people who can say what you feel without you knowing you feel it. I believe that music is one of the greatest expressions out there. Some of (there are way too many to list) favourites include Ani Difranco, Amanda Palmer, Mumford and sons, Swell season, Pat Metheny and my number 1 BARRY MICHAEL.

Barry is a melbourne boy who sings from the heart and has written songs that have been perfect for so many parts of my life.

I've followed Barry's music since I was old enough to talk and still know all his songs word for word.

Some of my fav's include
- I'm mad
- daily Disguise
- First time
- little darling
- a world that lasts forever
- pyscho killer
- Another direction
- Alone like you

Ok so i could list every song he's ever written but i think you should have a listen to him yourself. He's an amazing blend of pop/soul/swing/blues/folk/and generally great music.

So in this digital age I feel the very least I can do to repay this great talent for so many years of joy and songs to sing my heart out too is to share him with you all.

His albums can be purchased from itunes, and you can see him on youtube. So get out there and support a great local talent.

He's the next Chris Issak/Paul Kelly/and every muso that has ever touched your heart.

so if you like please pass his music on to someone you know.

Lingerie of the week - Hello Kitty crazy again

As normal its Sunday and I am looking around the web to find some wonderful piece of lingerie to brighten everyones day. This weekend I came across more Hello Kitty pieces, and my fav this Hello Kitty divine

Its always strange, and wonderful, to see just how many things are out there for Hello Kitty.
Plus it does make me have the internal battle of super cute vs the sexy gal.

Mind you these days you can get anythinhg hello kitty like this wedding dress. So i guess i shouldn't be too surprised at what i find anymore.

Wet, Windy equals fun socks

Ok so the weather in melb has gone even crazier than normal. After spending days thinking we were all going to melt the cool change has come through and now its rain and wind everywhere.

Not that I mind, I love an excuse to wear lots of layers and have fun. Hence I decided to break out some of my fav socks and have a slight school girl inspired outfit. Hey in this weather you've got to do something to bring the smile out.

Has my make up melted

Well after looking at the beautiful images of Vargas yesterday I was inspired to head to work in my best little "melting in the heat pinup gal" outfit

Today's color was purple.
So purple eyes, purple shirt, fav purple cardi

The plan was mainly to see if the make up would last the 38 degree day we had.

Thankfully it did....must say the amount of trips made to the juice bar
and ice cream stall may have something to do with the cooling temp.

dreaming of Vargas

Ok so i should be doing dishes, planning for tomorrows big day at work but all I really feel like doing is looking at the art of Alberto Vargas.

Why you may ask? Well Alberto Vargas was the first pinup artist that I fell in love with as a small starry eyed gal. There was just something about his girls that gave me the sense of "now thats a real woman"

All his girls, to me that is, were the perfect combination of sex, innocence and Goddess. Things I can only dream of being one day.

So as much as it may seem odd to my co-workers and staff I think tomorrows outfit and make up will be Vargas inspired

Sweet dreams
Luv & Lashes

so booked

It looks like christmas may be coming early to little old melbourne town... I've just found out that the wonderful team from the Lindy Charm School are on their way back to my fair city.

I can recommend this for every gal out there, its worth the time, money and effort to connect with these fantastic ladies and meet some new friendly faces.

In this heat

In this heat I am struggling with my love of stockings. I have invested in some stunning pairs from various providers but with the heat wave in Melbourne its proving a little harder to wear everyday.

So many of you may ask why since the invention of pantyhose or tights would anyone want to wear stockings unless you are trying to rev up the engine of your partner.

Well for me personally they make me walk taller, smile more and generally feel spectacular. There is just something special about walking around knowing that under your dress/skirt is the this silken pleasure is there, only for you and for those you wish to share it with.

I do firmly believe that lingerie is the foundation of you day, so with the right beginnings anything is possible.

I can only advise that ladies its time to hit the shops and grad a pair of stocking. Stay ups or true stockings and walk tall in your beauty.

I know I should be getting ready for work but.... I just can't help sit down and drink my coffee while watching Ruby Gloom. Yes its a kids show but hey you gotta love it as she's the happiest gal in gloomsville.

So turn on your tv's at 7.15 am and have a look.

Around town in the heat

In this heat I am trying to find cool places. Sadly in seems to be my car that is the safe haven, due to the wicked aircon i've got installed.

This heat of course poses a few problems. Not to mention general stickyness, but its the daily issue of "damn I wanted to wear that stupid too hot heat"

So I have broken out all the cute little black numbers I can find, and now get to play dress dressup.

At least I can still have tea, ok so its iced now but its still yummy. I've recently been hanging out at a cute little place perfectly named Planet Chocloate where I can indulge in my fav teas as well as crepes. I can't think of anything better than a crepe with ice cream and hot melted chocolate.

So after surviving 34 degree heat here in Melbourne my best advice is to break out those swimmers. pack a picnic and head down to the beach. My buddies and i have been heading down the St. Kilda and Brighton way in the early evening for some sunset fun and merriment. We can highly recommend this, especially when you can have a quick dip to cool off then head back to the shore for some crackers and dips

Friday 13th & Ms Palmer

Its friday the 13th and I am going to try and dodge the crazy people. Ok so that does include me but I am taking todays vibe and inspiration from one of my fav artist. The amazing Amanda Palmer....a woman who has been an amazing inspiration for me for many years now.

So today I will put the earphones in and crank the ipod up to max while I listen to dresden dolls and Amanda F**king Palmer. If you have never heard her i suggest you jump online and get an earful. Plus it doesn't hurt to see this loverly gal in corsets and lingerie alot of the time.

C is for cookie thats good enough for me

Yes, as a child of the 1980's I adore sesame street and the Muppets. Therefore I am excited to find some of the coolest things around for their 40th birthday. Plus you gotta love that cookie monster is on google. So in honor of all things sesame I have gone and hunted out some of my old and new fave SS treats.

Especially when it comes to stuff like cover art like these from the 1970's and 1980's. Sesame Road and Sesame Street fever featuring the rubber ducky disco remix.

You have to love when SS do covers of stuff like Mad Men as well.
Or you can indulge in these yummy cake pop treats from Bakerella.
In this big bad world you gotta love a place where monsters, people, animals and whatever's all live together in harmony.

Ok so this last one is just coz I don't think cookies are a sometimes treat either.
