Enough of Winter

I've had enough.  I promised myself I wouldn't do this, but I can't wait any longer...

Vomo Island Resort
PO Box 5650 Lautoka Fiji Islands
Phone +679 666 7955

Well I'm off - It's been a rough couple of months with clearly more to come and I've had enough of winter - and this happens every year at this time.  But sunny skies and warm weather beckon.  I'll be away from here for a week.  See you when I get back.

Is This Still Available?

Cheetah is everywhere these days, including eye shadow.  This was a limited edition eye shadow from Dior in 2011 - I'm not sure if it's still available but I would love to try it.

1. The camel shade emphasises eye colour. Apply to the lower eyelid then blend gently upwards. Apply also to the lower lash line.

2. The Ebony shade intensifies  the eyes. Apply it along the upper and lower lash lines. Blend with the camel shade.

3. The Nude shade brightens  and opens the eyes. Apply to the inner corner of the eye.

Requesting a Review - Dior

Since I have skin that is now described as aging in all of the store ads, I'm thinking about giving this brand a try.  Hey if it works for Sharon Stone maybe it will work for me.  However, before I plunk down the major bucks that this line costs I would like to hear from anyone who has used this line.  Does it really work?

Meet Lupo

The latest addition to the family is an adorable black cocker spaniel (my first dog as well I might add) named Lupo.  Awwwwww.  So cute. 

So British.  This picture optimizes everything Canadians think of when they think of British country life. 
If this image isn't a cover for a country life magazine, it should be.

Keira Knightley in Kenya

I fell in love with this photo spread starring Keira Knightley and shot in Kenya for Vogue by Arthur Elgot in 2007.  I came across some old photos on my computer and thought I would share them with you.  You've probably already seen them before, but it doesn't hurt to peruse them again.  Enjoy.

Poor Guy - the guy in the photo is their actual guide and they really did get stuck.  When he got out to push, Arthur Elgot decided to take advantage of this and get the shot.

My favourite shot - who can resist this little guy.

Thanks for the trip.

Sailing in Black & White

I'm a big fan of black and white, but this boat - The Beluga - appropriately named I think - is just the ticket.
