First on my list is this bit of classy bling...I can see myself wearing this on NYE.....

A CD...I have all of the Nicelback ones...but I don't have this Mr3P.
Get it from here JB Hi Fi 
This cute Metal Plate Hair Tie from Forever New...only $9.99

Kim Kardashian Gold perfume. I had the pink one, I think it was her first fragrance and I  was a big fan, so this is next on my list. I saw the 100ml at Priceline for $39...not bad at all...
If I'm going to have a's going to be this.
Had this for the first time, many, many years ago at the Sea World Nara resort at a special brunch with my friend Dee. We were only having "one glass" each...... um, well, we had to leave our cars and get a cab by the end of brunch!! You cannot stop at Worth every calorie.
Pommery Champange around $60 from Dan Murphy's.

For the lover of beautiful skincare, this is the Ultimate Skin & Body Collection from Jurlique. I was lucky to receive this pack from Jurlique a few weeks ago and I feel very spoilt.
If you want to impress...get her this!!
Get it (and other beautiful Christmas packs) from Jurlique's online store (here)
or go here to find a Jurlique store/stockist near you.

So, that's my list for 2012. Hope you like.

  1. My ultimate Christmas party would be held on the International Space Station in space! Lots of champagne floating around the room (so we'd have to fly around in order to slurp up the bubbles), music as loud as we like (because there's no chance of annoying any neighbours), and Christmas baubles floating all around us to create a wonderful festive atmosphere. And who knows, since we're in space we might actually see Santa flying by with his reindeers! ;)

  2. It's all about the outdoors for me this year. i would like to see dozens of rectangular tables end to end in a clearing surrounded by trees covered in white Christmas lights. White table cloths and crisp linen napkins, candles in hurricane lamps all down the centre. Friends, family, neighbours and some celebrity guests would all bring their signature Christmas dishes to share. Ours would be hubby's Guiness ham. There would be fresh salds, crusty bread, fruit salads and cakes. Matt's mixed six would be everywhere so their is great wine to share with the different dishes. The Dj would play Christmas Carols all through dinner but afterwards would crank out the latest dance tracks or even some retro tunes. Good homecooked food, great wine, dancing and lively conversation - Celebrity guests would include Robin Williams, Stephen Fry, Pink, Louis Theroux, Stephen Hawking and John Berrowmsn. John might even pick up the microphone and give us some showtunes later in the night.

  3. Forgot to leave a name..

  4. Speaking of Jurlique, I never did hear anymore from them. Oh well. Heading to your FB page.

    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.

    Maybe you could space it out better?
