Jennifer Lawrence is the most amazing person ever.


Favourite Buzz

My favourite buzz this week goes to 37 Things to DIY Instead Of Buy For Your Wedding. It will be two years in January since Man Piece proposed and although we haven’t set a date or even really started thinking about it*, I’m always on the look out for interesting ideas to make the wedding a bit more ‘us’. I have the idea to DIY a few things in order to personalise things, but other than that I want a fairly simple plain non-extravagant wedding.

I really love the idea of ribbons on the back of the chairs.

This article from Mashable has 17 Photographs That Display Perfect Symmetry, which was compiled from a Mashable challenge set for people to take photos with symmetry.

I think my favourite is this one of escalators:

Interesting Article

Reason 818** why I love Jennifer Lawrence:

You look like you look, and be comfortable. What are you going to do be hungry every single day to make other people happy? That’s just dumb.

A-to-the-men, sista. This interview with her as she promotes Hunger Games: Catching Fire is one of the best things ever. She basically tells the haters to go screw themselves. She is fast becoming my new favourite celebrity.

Fashion Love

This week’s fashion love has to go to the Swim+ Lookbook put together by Danimezza. I have flicked through it a couple of times now and am loving several of the swimsuits featured. Although I have already purchased new togs this year from Autograph (post to come later this week), I’m contemplating one or two more from this. Especially one of the Robyn Lawley pieces. I hear David Jones stocks them.

Grabby Hands

I’m really wanting a pair of crop black pants which I can wear with a nice heel for work. I’ve been looking around but can’t find too many. I’ve found one pair from Target in the new Bellecurve range and one pair from Autograph. Neither of these really look like what I am after. I think I might have to go try both pairs on because I might change my mind after that. Do you know of anywhere else stocking black crop pants in plus sizes?



I was actually wondering what I would even put in here for the video this week and then I saw in my Facebook timeline the new video for ‘Let It Go’ by Demi Lovato for the new Disney movie Frozen. Done. You get Demi again. Sorry, not sorry.

She is truly amazing and I totally have a girl crush.


*This is a complete and utter lie. I’ve planned the whole thing in my head. Man Piece is the one that hasn’t thought about it.

** I made this number up. Sorry, not sorry.

Fall Out Boy saved rock and roll*

It has taken me a while, but I’ve finally gotten around to listing to the new Fall Out Boy album ‘Save Rock and Roll’ and I am addicted!

Even though it was released back in April and I downloaded it from iTunes immediately, it has taken me till now to actually listen to it properly. It has been on repeat for the last two days.

I’m already pulling lyrics out because they just stand out to me.

Case and point:



I may have also created this in photoshop and then instagramed that shit.**

I think my favourite song on the album is Just One Yesterday (feat. Foxes).

I’d trade all my tomorrows for just one yesterday.

Another lyric I love is this one from Save Rock and Roll:

I need more dreams and less life and I need that dark in a little more light. I cried tears you’ll never see, so fuck you, you can go cry me an ocean and leave me be.

And Elton John is in on this – HOW FREAKING COOL.

I also really love what they did with the videos – watch them all!

So yes, I’m horribly addicted to Fall Out Boy again.*** If you have not listened to the album or any of their past work, seriously, just do it.

*See what I did there?
**I’m fine with it.
***Well played, dudes, well played.

Would the real Demi Lovato please stand up?

Yesterday while I was sitting in Wellington airport waiting for my flight back to Sydney, I decided to watch some videos on YouTube to use up some of my remaining data.

I came across the official ‘Heart Attack’ lyric video on Demi Lovato’s channel. When I first listened to it I did not think much of it and blogged my thoughts. But I decided to give it another listen to see if I liked it any more.

TURNS OUT, that the song I originally listened to wasn’t ‘Heart Attack’ at all, but some other dubious song, which someone had named as ‘Heart Attack’. Some old cover Demi had done. It has now been removed from YouTube.


Anyway, the REAL song is actually pretty good and I quite like it.

Shut the front door. No, really.

I am listing to Demi Lovato’s new song and all I can think is, what the actual fuck is this?

I have no idea.

Could it be one that slowly grows on you? No idea.

It is definitely not what I usually listen to, yet I usually listen to Demi.

*brain implodes*

Fall Out Boy are back and I’m so freaking excited!

This morning I woke to a wonderous email. An email detailing the return of Fall Out Boy. OH HAPPY DAYS.

Fall Out Boy have been on hiatus for the past three years – they adamantly deny that they ever broke up – and now finally, with having denied their come back as well, have surprised* us all quite suddenly with a new single, new tour dates and the announcement of a new album.

So yes, they’re back and the new album ‘Save Rock and Roll’ is out May 6.

In addition to this announcement, the band have released their new single from the album – My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark (Light Em Up).

Screen Shot 2013-02-05 at 8.54.24 PMObviously here is the single too:

I love it.

And the best part about all of this is that they are doing a tour with a Sydney date – March 25! I will be there, hopefully, if I can get tickets and I’m going to bloody well try with all my life.

Welcome back Fall Out Boy, I look forward to the gig, the album release and whatever else you have to come.


*Not so much.
