10 Things

1. Sometimes the best photos of people are the ones where they never realised they were being photographed.
2. Some labels you should acually read.
3. Apparently you should eat fruit on an empty stomach.
4. Men are walking contradictions.
5. I am way too fond of my pajamas and slippers.
6. This week, I am questioning everything I thought I wanted.
7. A mini-break with the Boyf was quite successful.
8. It’s ok to want to ask all the “wrong questions” and to not know all the anwsers.
9. Farmer’s markets are the way to go.
10. I wonder, is love really all we need?

things that men will never understand

1. Just because we have a grey cashmere cardigan/ Miu Miu bag, it never ever means we don’t need another one.

2. Making us watch football is the equivalent of us making you paint your toenails. It goes against nature.

3. Scarlett Johansson wouldn’t go out with you if you met her. Think realistic for your laminated list. That’s why we’ve ditched Brad Pitt for a more realistic Robert Pattinson, who is single and hasnt adopted half of the developing world.

4. If your proposal isn’t at least as extraordinary as our friend Andrea, Tiffany or Jessica’s. We’ll probably never quite forgive you.

5. “Are those space-pants? Because your ass is out of this world…” may get a laugh, but in no way guarantees said pants are coming off.

6. Making the bed. “But we’re just going to get back into it later.” It. Doesn’t. Matter. Make the damn thing.
7. Tupperware and cling-film. Allow us to introduce you to these magical things that keep your food fresh and your fridge from smelling like socks.

8. Somebody once said that the pain of childbirth is equivalent to being repeatedly kicked in the balls for however many hours the labour lasts. Think that over.
9. Fart jokes are only funny if you have a penis.
10. Blonde hair and a cleavage don’t automatically denote a good-time girl. Nor do brunette hair and sophisticated clothes denote intelligent ‘wife’ material. They’re totally interchangeable. Rarely, but sometimes.
11. We’d rather you didn’t have a perfect six-pack. When you do, it makes us feel like we need one too. Which ain’t gonna happen.

12. Topgear is to you, what Oprah is to me. enough said.

13. Flowers, chocolates and cards may all seem like an over-priced, sickly romantic waste of time. But they are important to us, and make us feel oh-so-special.

Realistically, this list could go on forever. At the end of the day, I love our differences. I love being with a man who is the salt to my pepper. the sweet to my sour. the night to my day. Men create the perfect contrast and I am lucky enough to be with one that brings out the best in me. Lets challenge and embrace our differences.

I’ve decided that…

life’s too short for…

1. Sugar-free desert. How good can an unsweetened cookie really taste?
2. Patience. Whoever said that Patience was a virtue obviously haven’t done a whole lot of air travel.
3. Not splurging on that designer bag at least once.
4. Leave in hair conditioner. use it. wash it. get over it.
5. Knitting your own jumpers.. One word –Country Road.
6. Getting out of your pajamas on a cold, windy wet day.
7. Making your career the focus of your life.
8. Not giving into temptation very once and awhile.
9. Organic carrots.
10. To not get to know your neighbours.
11. Putting honey in coffee.
12. Holding a grudge.
13. Nagging.
14. Baggage (unless it’s the duty-free kind)
15. Life’s too short to not appreciate those amazing people around you. It’s too short to spend your time looking around at what others have and comparing. And last but definitely not least, life’s too short to not use all the love in your heat every single day.

its for you

Darlings, as most of you know it’s almost Valentines Day- So, I thought i’d do an ‘It’s for you’ in honour of this wonderful (yet totally commercialised) heart covered day 🙂
How this post works: I will answer the below very random questions- then YOU can answer the questions as a comment. Why? Because sharing is caring *winks*.
1. I think Valentines Day… is a silly & sweet idea, but I personally would prefer to be surprised with a love gift on an unexpected day of the year.

2. One of my favourite romantic movies is…. The Notebook.

3. Love song of the week? ‘Stay With You’- John Legend

4. What would you like to get most for Valentines Day? I would love a romantic handmade card or a handwritten love letter. Girls are really quite simple creatures.

5. This Valentines Day I…. don’t care what I do, as long as I get to spend it with the Boyf. Hear from the Boyf. Talk to the Boyf. Like I said, women are so simple. Valentines day needn’t cost a fortune, at the end of the day women want to feel appreciated. To know that their hard work doesn’t go unnoticed and that the man in our lives just couldn’t imagine his life without us in it. Simple.
(I secretly have big expectations for my very first couple-clad Valentines Day)
