Word of the Week

Although now more commonly used to define an extremely visually challanging appearance, the word minger originally came from scottish gaelic, meaning 'septic vagina'.

Now often used by chavs all over Britain to define anything remotely disgusting

Anyone who does not look better to you after several strong alcoholic drinks probably fits this category. 
Eurgh look Shaz, thats right minging, innit.

Tasche Nails

How cute is this?!?!

For this and so many other inspirational beauty posts go to The Beauty Department - a site by Lauren Conrad, Kristen Ess and Amy Nadine - my favourite beauty blog.

Allison Harvard

For those of you who don't know - Allison Harvard is the creepy girl from America's Next Top Model that likes blood. I love her look, it's quirky and doll-like.

LolCats! Oh Yeah!

No surprises here, I love Lolcats!
Reminds of Mark.. Teehee

Lust List

Things I am drooling over.

1. Brogues - I really want a pair of shiny, not too dainty brogues, in black.

I tried a pair similar to this the other day. While I do love them, I felt a little clownish...

I have a thing for red shoes. And  love the pointy toe!
Dorothy Perkins
2. An  awesome vintagey record player
   There is nothing more awesome than listening to your favorite song over a record player, I just get this indescribable feeling, like a warm wave crashing over me, forcing me to get up and do the Jitterbug. When I was a kid I had one, and would listen to the Rolling Stones, The Beatles and Del Shannon and make up little dances to perform for my teddys. I know, I know.
OMG- remember this?

 I would love one in a box, so I can carry it everywhere! Picnic in the park, anyone?

Just coz I love you!

Blegh! This is so fascinatingly disgusting!

Don't say I didn't warn you

Fuck me - there are some disgusting things on the web. Seriously. Ick.

Time for Love

Lookie what I found on the interwebs. MorkRock and I consider this 'our song' - gay and cheesy I know...

it's time for love....

Fok Julle Naaiers

Die Antwoord are no strangers to controversy and their new video, "Fok Julle Naaiers" is a prime example of just that.

I'm guessing it's a big fuck you to Interscope, who had previously told them to calm the album down, make it more mainstream.

It's quite a disturbing video, from "Fok julle naaiers" to DJ Hi-TEK's piece at the end - "I'm gonna fuck you til you love me". I'm wondering if it's a reference to Mike Tyson's freak out back in 2002, where he says basically the same lines??

Waddy Jones is still dropping tight lines, he's amazing, even if it's shock tactics like this

The cinematography is great though, the whole video is shot in black and white, and showcases gangsters, worms and lots of penis drawings.

Have a look, drop me a line - whaddya think?

 Looks like they just randomly selected a bunch of Pollsmoor inmates to feature in it.

I do miss the Max Normal days though... check this out - love

Word of the Week


An extremely cheesey emo/scene/hipster/trendster/whatever. Cheesemos attend lame shows and talk like they're the coolest thing around. They also wear lame band tees and neatly folded bandanas in their back pockets. Also somewhere belts without putting them in a beltloop. (WTF?)
Cheesemo-"Are you like totally going to the FFTL show!?"
Me- "You're Fucking Gay"

Listen to Me, Paduwans.

What's been stuck in my head of late.

Recipe Time!

Best Blue Cheese Sauce

2 T butter
2 T flour
1 cup milk
1/2 cup cream
3/4 wedge blue cheese, chopped into blocks (I used Fairview Blue Rock)
salt and black pepper to season

Melt the butter completely, mix in all of the flour with a whisk until there are no lumps, and a smooth paste is formed. Pour in the milk/cream combo, stirring slowly. It will start to thicken, continue to stir so it does not burn. Continue until you reach the consistency and thickness of your choice. Add the cheese and stir it in.
Once the cheese is melted and mixed in, transfer to a bowl/serving jug, or else it will burn.

You can substitute the blue cheese for any other to make a cheesy sauce to your liking. Or omit it completely for a lovely bechamel sauce.

I made this tonight to go into a chicken and mushroom pie. It was delicious!

Hipsters are People Too!


The other night I went for a drink with mah girls at the Power and the Glory (more on that later), and I learnt that HIPSTERS ARE PEOPLE TOO! 

Imagine that!

But only after a couple of beers.

Me: So, what do you do?
Hipster: Weeeelll, I'm like an artistic director of photography for this small media company, ya know, like it's all these creatives and we just work so hard, ya know, it's like really complicated.
Me: So you're a photographer?
Hipster: In a way, ya know

She went on to tell me how difficult it is and basically explained how someone like me (blonde, not wearing my dad's jersey with granny's tights off the Titanic) would never understand.

But after a few beers the facade broke down, and I saw that she was just another girl trying to show everyone  that she's somebody too. She even smiled.

And now for the cheesy moral of the story type effort...

Everyone has their own shit to deal with, be nice to hipsters, they might just be people under the whole veneer, and layers of funny clothes. Just maybe...

And now... Just in case you haven't seen it before.........

It's Been Too Long


It's been too long. I must apologize for my long absence.

I've resigned from my depressing job, and decided to take my life back into my own hands (as cheesy as that sounds). I've come to the realization that a) my job is not everything b) I should not let it control my happiness c) I'm 23 for fuck's sake - I do not have to have this amazing career to impress my family with and d) my family, life, health are so much more important than my job.

Whooosaaaa. So now that that's off my chest, I can start being inspired and happy enough to inspire you to do the same.

Yeah, take that shitty poopoo job!
