So all this heat and craziness of late has given me no time to blog but i am going to put some effort in as soon as CS goes back to WA! I promise.

This week IglooZooakaPinkberry has been my friend!!!

For those of you who dont know what it is i have PICS!

basically, IglooZoo is a concept ripped off PinkBerry from the states via Korea which was probably ripped off something else as well.

Here is the original PinkBerry from LA. Basically you chose 1 flavour of FroYo (original, pomegranate, green tea) and then three toppings !
Below is a photo of my friend Alicia's Pinkberry from when she went to LA.
I believe she chose coffee flavoure froyo ( only available in the US)
and it seems she has coconut shavings and some sort of brown poo like topping. HA!

The thing about Igloozoo is that the toppings change everyday. I have my favourites but i never seem to get them all at the same time
my top topping picks are
-pomegranate seeds
-choc coffee beans

The options and combos are endless! they are heaps of other toppings as well ( kiwi, mango, cookie, halva, muesli, plum compote, marshmellows, pistachios and the list goes on )

Here is a pic of one of my igloozoos recently. mango, strawberry, nectarine. i dont rate mango. tastes like soap. but i tried it atleast.

One thing you must know!
there is a horrible impostor out there! It goes by the name of "berrybliss"
it tastes foul. they try to lure you in with MnM toppings and a mango flavour but dont be fooled. their yoghurt tastes like the lemon thing i put in the dishwasher to make it smell decent.
no berrybliss!!!

So if there is anyone who is reading this who hasnt tried IglooZoo you must go today!
but be careful because this shit is addictive like crack!!!!!!!!

stores are in 
Malvern, VIC
Bondi , NSW
Potts Point, NSW
Surfers, QLD

go to
for exact addressed.
i want one now
and if you really want to waste time go to the american pinkberry website and listen to the addictive jingle that gets in your head for like 3 months.

Trashy ! okay not me ! the bag being me ! hahaha this is my first atempt at trying to do an outfit post and i couldn't find my digicam anywhere! so i used photobooth on my mac and it was really hard! especially because i couldn't open the curtains to get some light in!

So I feel really weird posting outfit ideas. but i feel it is unfair for me to stalk a million fashion blogs without giving something back. and hopefully this will be a journey for me as well.
to add more colour into my 95% ok make that 99% black wardrobe.

Today it was cold in Melbourne. COLD ! 19 ! ok not so bad. but ill use any excuse to wear black opaques.

Black JayJays cardigan ( xmas present from my mum in 07! )
Sass&Bide "Note To Self" top
Black Kookai dress underneath
Black opaques
Christian Louboutin C'est Moi booties

Jewelery : ( which u can hardly see. i suck at the pics really!)
Blue and black Hermes Click H
Tiffany&Co balls necklace
WhiteGold bangle my parents got made for me when we were in Vietnam in 2001 !
I am wearing rings too but u cant see them so no point listing them!

Here is a close up of my booties because they look black in the pic up top, but they are infact blue. They were an xmas present from CouchShopper.
Thank u my sweetie. xoxo

My blue suede shoes . everytime i see them i MUST sing elvis in my head.

And on the nails,
OPI "Do you lilac it?" polish

and that is that.
the anxiety of the outfit post is over.
its out there for the world to see my chubba body. and 2009 i will lose some lbs!

in the last three days i have eaten well AND exercised.
lets see how long this will stick shall we?!

i need to stop being so pessimistic.
maybe in 2009 i will be more optimistic and happier ! even if it makes me unhappy!

oh and before i forget, i will add what fragrance i was wearing so you can REALLY be there HA!
well no this is just an attempt to tell you all how much i love my new perfume!
Its called Bronze Goddess (LAME) and its from Estee Lauder ( i must be 25 heading on 50)
but it smells like vanilla and coconuts and its the bomb.
its so good im scared randoms might lick me if i walk past them.

Holiday dreaming....

Hello there,
what a boring day it has been. Stuck at work. Nothing to do. I went to Borders last night and bought what i thought was the new US ELLE magazine. It had the special " AIR FREIGHT sticker and the $15 price tag so i thought w00t. Then i get to reading it today and i find out its October's issue. errr. WHAT? how is it air freight from 5 months ago? Borders, you screwed me, screwed me good. 
back on topic.
The hot topic in our household is where are we going for our next "vac-ay"
In 2008 we did Hawaii in June and Tokyo in September. I went to Hong Kong, China and Macau with a friend in January. Oh and we went to Perth. Cant forget that thrilling city. Ha! im just joking !!!
In 2007 we did Europe. Which included, Barcelona, Monte Carlo, Paris, Amsterdam.

So the big question is, where should CS team go in 2009?? i really wish i could refer to us as CS squared but i dont know the shortcut for it on Mac. dammit. im lookin at u kiz. plz help .
I have been to Europe the year before with a friend so i saw london and greece as well and ive also  been to Japan 4 times and LA, Mexico, Hawaii on other occasions and also Vietnam, Malaysia. and maybe other places im forgetting.
so i want to go somewhere NEW
but with the horrid aussie dollar. it makes me get mad. MAD! why am i giving them money for nothing? our holiday in hawaii would now cost us 30% extra and what do we get in return? NOTHING! that IS crazy talk!
so now i have no idea where to go.
I think our top 2 contenders are
But im going to throw in hawaii. cuz i had another thought about it. and it was fun
but lets focus on France because that seems to be the front runner.
CouchShopper seems to think that we should go to bali. but i think he is crazy.
Here are some photos of our trip to France 1.5 years ago.xoxo

Okay First things first. THIS DRINK IS THA BOMB! whoever from Coke decided to discontinue this line is a freakin moron.
i loved this shit and sourced it out from USA foods and bought the whole freakin shop . COFFEE + COKE! WHAT IS NOT TO LOVE? i tried to duplicate this lovely drink by putting an espresso shot in with coke and adding sugar. NASTY plz dont try at home k?
p.s i AM wearing clothes in this pic k?
okay now back on story,

Once Upon a Time, In a land far far away, (Barcelona) CottonSocks decided shed rather drive from Barcelona to Monte Carlo because she is scared of planes. 
This was supposed to be a lovely romantic car ride across the Spanish/French countryside.
It started off with Couch Shopper not being able to read a map. "how manly" you say? why yes i know.
so i , the pants in the relationship, stepped up and took charge. 
it all went well until he refused to take my advise and got us lost.
thanks my darling, it was a blast.
so after being in the car HOURS long than we were supposed to, i needed to entertain myself. so i listened to my ipod and bought a little plastic cow with ice cream treat inside a petrol station. i called him MOOEY. he joined our road trip. i still have the cow today. i liked his pink nipples.

So we finally arrived in Nice and it was far too late to get the car back to Avis or take the train to Monte Carlo so we slept at hotel and woke up to take the car back to Avis. Once again CouchShoppers lovely man skills go us to the avis shop in about 2-3 hours. but the view driving around finding avis was special wasnt it?
FYI, It was I who found Avis in the end ! I really am the pants !!

Finally we arrive! But i do not look happy. CS refuses to smile in photos so i will do the same! ha! in europe u must wear the oversized sunnies, darling!
We have a nice view of some boats from our balcony. However it is bitter sweet. Where is my yacht?

On the night of CS birthday we went to the roof/cliff top open air cinema! We watched Harry Potter. Its a cottonsocks favourite. I got scared! 
So we enjoyed Harry Potter with beers and some dodgy excuse for popcorn and icecreams!
Then at the end, there were fireworks! just for couchshoppers bday! he is lucky! it made our trip!

One day we walked up the cliff to the palace and i took a pic of this bomb view!
Monte Carlo is quite beautiful! as long as you stay out of the area with the main casino. gross tourists all over the place taking photos of ferraris. ugh gross.
and crazy people from some asian country chasing us to take photos of us.  
and just so you all dont think im horrible, i DID let the randoms take photos of me and i am now forever in some random peoples SD cards. creepy.
no im not russian k thnx

Even on holidays CouchShopper wont take a break from ProTools....

And then after our stop in Monte Carlo we flew to Paris. !! yay
this is the only photo of Paris i will post because its the only one without me holding shopping bags and we dont want to remind CouchShopper of that aspect of the holiday.
Just think, basil spaghetti and bellinis in the hotel restaurant and our random ethiopian meal and eurodisney!

So CouchShopper, 

after you have read through this photo diary, what do u think?


you know you love me

i love u missoni cardigan

For xmas CS gave me a missoni cardigan which i truly love to death.
I think it has to be my favourite piece in my wardrobe right now, which is a problem because i want to wear it everyday. eventually it will smell and i have no idea how to clean this thing.

as much as i love it, its so hard to wear because it catches onto nearly EVERYTHING. its too precious for me!
here is a lovely pic that CS lil brother took of my cardigan and for some reason he cut out the floor. maybe because it was in need of a vacuum. 

P.S In the shopping centre now they are playing Love Shack over the loud speaker. so weird and random. crazy love shack music at 2 in the afternoon.

i wish i could be a less lazy owner and walk her everyday. it would benefit me and her. but i am lazy lazy lazy! 
for 2009 i want to lose weight. but i am super lazy and im sure ive said this for the past 5 years so i honestly dont know if this will be the year of change. maybe if i blog about my journey i will be more inspired..because i will have a pressure to do something and get a result? hmmm
something to consider.
