Here is a Summary of what I've been loving, enjoying and wanting:
Paul Anka's ROCK SWING. Yes, you read and speculated correctly. Mr Big Band himself has crooned his way through Rock's classics from past to present, sampling the likes of Radiohead and Nirvana! Maybe it is just me but it WAS NOT HIDEOUS! Thanking my lovely friend Benny for introducing me to this musical phenomenon, it has been on repeat a few times at my office already and proved to be the perfect background for my recent BBQ.
Call me a geek, or more aptly a jock but I along with a fair amount of the world have screamed, shed tears, rejoiced and laughed at the 2010 WORLD CUP! The beginning resulted in me indoors most evenings even though the sun was shining, and when games were in the day I had my browser constantly refreshed to keep up with the scores. This wasn't even just for England games BUT I got soooo in to it I was cheering and booing along to random games like Paraguay and Nigeria! Few highlights...or just moments to mention; the final Ghana game, England being crap and the comic stylings of Argentina Coach Maradonna trying to manage on the Sidelines. With four teams left as I write this I think I'm for Germany to win! Controversial but...
Update- The world cup in NOW OVER! Germany gots the boot! And Spain our the new winners, Viva Espana!!!
Sometimes I find myself with a quiet moment at the office and just scroll through the millions and millions of images that are available on Flickr. This is definately a time and generation where Photography has become more mainstream, pushing excellence, creativity and originality to new levels. Give a kid a decent a camera and you pretty much get a good shot, but the more and more I look at some really amazing images I find it is more than that. It is about the spirit of the moment they capture and there is real beauty in it. It has inspired me in some styling ideas, though I would love to be able to take more photos and learn about photography more myself.
The style I like is that pretty, woodland vibe. Sort of like Lula Magazine. Some Flickr profiles to check out are:

and here is a link to my lovely friend Jere's Flickr! The picnic picture, the blog banner and jenga pic are from him:
So these are a few things that have been filling my space and time. Things I am looking forward to in the near future:
-West Coast Road trip. LA-LV-SanFran, aaaaggghhh, can't wait!
-New material arriving from the Philippines, to make more pretty dresses
-Seeing my lovely parents
I will be sure to keep everyone updated and stop being a slack monkey.
