Bus Rolls

I like the idea of this bus roll style bucket list although I have problems with the bucket list concept. I saw an interview with a famous journo who is currently fighting cancer and he said he doesn’t believe in bucket lists because it suggest finality and he refuses to accept that. I think that’s a great mentality and prefer the idea of having a list of things you want to do and always be adding to it once you’ve achieved it. I feel like completing a bucket list is the ultimate let down because the thing that comes next is something nobody really wants. /end rant

How cute is this?!

I like this one, nice and simple.

Freshwater=my favourite beach. Bondi is for tourists :)

I love this one, what a great twist on the idea!

As I have a “J” name, this really tickles my fancy :)

$11 of Books


Zelda Fitzgerald biography and a can of poppies!



This is what $11 worth of books look like. From the top: The Rocketeer by Peter David, Throughly Modern Millie, Little Girl Lost by Al Diorio (about Judy Garland), The Consuls File by Paul Theroux, Goodnight Mister Tom by Michelle Magorian (I thought this was the saddest book in the world when I was younger), The Colour Purple by Alice Walker, The Concise Oxford Dictionary of Quotations, The Devil Wears Prada by Lauren Weisberger and What is the What by Dave Eggers.

I was really excited to find The Rocketeer, it was the first movie I went to at the (back then) new cinemas in New Lynn, Auckland. It’s a really comic book style movie (probs because it’s based on a comic book), great costumes and a guy with a rocket pack who fights Nazis in a zeppelin.

Hope everyone has a lovely Easter!

Heston’s Gothic Feast

Another bunch of screencaps from one of Heston Blumenthal’s feasts, the gothic feast. Not sure about this one, it involved a blood risotto which is entirely too scary for my liking!

Heston’s Feasts

I have been obsessively watching Heston Blumenthal’s show where he does themed feasts over the past week. It really makes me resent my utterly rubbish cooking skills but I’m amazed by his creativity. He’s like a child who just happens to be an incredible chef. Actually, maybe more like a teenager considering he made jelly with dildos in it on one of the episodes…
