Digit

The inside of my poor head looks like a very messed up version of the image above. So today... statistics, and especially Excel and SPSS, you can go kiss my ample derriere. I am officially sick of you. I'm going getting a coffee.

ID Curve - Jeanius

I was browsing through The Mail online this morning and spotted this article claiming that Levi's are to eradicate muffin tops for ever! Hooray.


Hands up if you're sick of jeans that give you a flat arse, that gape at the back cause you had to buy a size up on the waist to get jeans to fit your bum and thighs, that give you the old favouite - muffin top?

I'm actually waving my hands around at this stage and getting funny looks in the office.

Levi's got up of their proverbial bum and went out and talked to tens of thousands of women about what they are looking for in a pair of denims. They scanned a lot of posteriors and came up with jeans with different 'curves' - bold, demi and slight - depending on how much junk you got in your trunk.

With a price tag of £85 to £90 (€105 - €115 at a guess) keep your eyes peeled for this style to come to our shores. While not the cheapest of denims, New Looks jeans are as low as €12, you can rarely put a price on good fit and quality.

Check out the Levi's page for more details on ID Curve.

A Fresh Start

Since I've moved in to a new room in my house I am craving a new space to work from. A new desk, a new chair, some new accessories, maybe a lamp.

Is it just me, or does anyone else get a sense of motivation and a fresh start from something new?

Things I Love Thursday


Candlelight - Everything instantly looks better in candlelight. The first thing I did when I got back to my house in Limerick tonight was light a few candles in my room and pretend that I couldn't see the mess that I had forgotten to clean up before I headed home for a few days.


The 'Doing Something Nice' Feeling - I've been at home home (where I was brought up, not where I live) for the past few days helping my mum out with some work around the house that she couldn't get to. I was heading away to Limerick this evening and I gave her a hug before I left, I was shocked to see tears in her eyes as I hugged her. I don't know if they were because I was heading away or because I helped out but as I went out the door I got the feeling that I had done something nice for her, and I was glad.


Eric Northman -
Just because Alexander Skarsgard is beautiful.

Honourable Mention - having a full set of long nails (I am tempting karma by even mentioning this, I'm sure a nail will now go 'bye bye' tomorrow), getting a couple of ultra-bargains at the end of the summer sales (€1 vests I love you), ice cold limeade, kisses on the tip of my nose from Scruffy

Excuses Excuses

source

I know it's not a valid excuse to be neglecting ye olde bloggie community but I am at home for a few days to help my mum out with a little work and country broadband has a tendency to not work more than it works.

So I leave you with yet another inspiring image, and the thoughts that when I wake up in the morning the most wonderful thing that might happen to me is that the wall I'm painting won't need a second coat.

Night night my lovelies.

Pretty Girl Friday


source

This weeks Girl Friday has to be Emma Watson.

source

source unknown

What's so amazing about this actress/model is her versatility. She can go from sweet and innocent to vampish and sexy with a quick flick of eyeliner and a dirty glint in her eye.

Have you seen her latest haircut? Emma got herself a new pixie cut in order to help her chances to star in the 'The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo' movie.

source unknown

Do you think it was a wise move to cut off her locks? Do you think she can carry off the Mia Farrow look or did you rather her long flowing style
?

You Are A Golden Girl



I woke up this morning to find a parcel inside the front door, and when I opened it look what I found inside.



I have the sweetest friends ever!

Earlier this week I posted about this necklace, and a little while later I got a message on Facebook from Samantha looking for my address. How fantastically, amazingly sweet is that?!?! She also picked out these beautiful earrings as a surprise for me. Isn't she a keeper! But...


...do you really want to know what the best part was? Two other friends came looking for my address so that they could get it for when my birthday came around...

...And when I got home from college today Sonya handed me an identical 'A Box For Your Treasures' package containing the apple tree necklace that she had bought me as a going away present before she moves out in a few weeks.



It's gestures like all those above that let me know that I am incredibly lucky to have friends like I do. Amazing, thoughtful, generous, fantastic friends who make everything better by just being around, whether it's online or downstairs in the sitting room, they always know how to make me smile.

In the immortal words of Blanche, Rose, Dorothy and Sophia
'Thank you for being a friend'

Hugs and lots of love to Samantha and Sonya, and Dawn and Fredrick too

Wednesday Wish


My wish for this week is for a little sunshine during the month of August. Here in the West of Ireland we rarely get good weather outside of May and early September but I am sending great big wishes out to Mamma Nature to send some sun our way.

What's your wish this week?
