Today I Love…..Book Bags!!

9 May

You may like to call them novel bags…..and I think they are awesomely novel!

 Who wants to look fashionable and smart all at the same time??!!

 Yep I do – what about you??

 My fashion radar has recently found lovely little handbags and clutches that actually look like real books when you carry them under your arm! Somebody smart is onto something here……

My recommendation is you get a title that you have actually read……

Otherwise if you happen to be approached with questions about the ‘book’ you are carrying – you should be prepared to RUN….and quickly so you don’t have to try and answer questions on a fabulous topic that you have absolutely no idea about!

Get yours here:

Today I love….Rachael Treasure

30 Jul

This woman is one hell of an Aussie!!!

She is worth her weight in gold for the wonderful work she does for working sheep dogs, women, their families and rural farming communities in this country.

What a woman she is!!!

As Rachael herself says:

“My life is made rich with the presence of animals in my life. I adore my sheep (Crossbreds and Merinos) and Hereford Cattle that are raised on all natural grass.

Our dogs are part of our family. We have both Kelpies and Collies, a Springer Spaniel for truffle harvest and a cheeky Jack Russell that’s great on cleaning my kitchen floor.

We use our horses for both social outings (riding down to the bar at the cricket club) or working stock on the farm. We also breed a few foals using good Aussie stockhorse or Waler genetics.”

My Mum got me reading her books and now I just can’t put them down – well, now I can because I have read them all and I need Rachael to write more for me and her many other fans!!

Today I love….Pretty Little Mistakes

29 Jul

I stumbled upon this book by accident at my local library….

After reading the concept I was sold!

I was totally in love with the Choose Your Own Adventure books when I was younger and this book is along the same lines….except it is chick-lit….and it is in-your-face baby!

I got shot in the face with a .38 in a traffic dispute the first time I read this book! Wow! That one shocked me! The next time I chose my own path, I was addicted to meth and killed by cervical cancer….the next time I also died a horrible death….unfortunately I have not yet found a happy ending in this book but I figure there must be at least one out of a possible one hundred and fifty endings!! Apologies if some of this post does not make sense – back pain is my friend tonight folks….
