I have only been able to catch the first episode of this show, but I have to say that I like it. Fashionably Late with Rachel Zoe uses the late night talk show model to discuss all things fashion. It takes fashion seriously while still having a little fun. You never see, on tv, fashion being talked about in this manor and it is so refreshing to have Zoe delve into fashion and discuss it as if you would politics or sport. There are a million sport chat shows and it would be awesome if other networks copied Zoe’s show and produced more shows like this. I’d watch.

The weekend has rolled around yet again. I'm taking a long weekend this weekend as my brother is in town. We plan to do a lot of swimming with 40 degree temperatures predicted for most of the weekend.  A few waterholes and a lot of our swimming pool. Hope you stay cool this weekend!

Catching my eye on the internets this week....

My Morning Routine

I love reading about people's routines, so today I thought I would share my morning routine with you!

When you have a 3 year old, you don’t tend to need an alarm. Lulu wakes me up anywhere between 5:30am and 6am. Nick and I alternate which mornings we exercise (You can read about how we fit exercise into our daily routine here). If it’s his day to go mountain bike riding* then I play with Lulu, make coffee and breakfast. For breakfast I love muesli and Lulu normally has toast.

Post breakfast is a scramble to shower, clothe, hair and make-up before getting Lulu ready. By the time I’m ready, Nick is normally home to help get Lulu ready. I then prepare her daycare things while he gets ready.  

We leave Triple J on in the morning as a time keeping devise and because for the most part, they tend to play great music in the mornings. 

Nick’s work is across town and takes longer to get to, so I drop Lulu at daycare.  We’re normally backing out of the driveway around 7:50am. The daycare drop off is usually a fairly easy process. She loves her daycare and her friends and is easily distracted as soon as she gets there.  I then drive to work. To get a little more exercise in my day I have been parking a little way away from my work and I normally arrive a little after 8am which I make up at the end of the day. 

What does your morning routine look like? It is all rushed or a little relaxed? Please share in the comments below.

Fargo Season 2

Have you caught the first episode of Fargo Season 2? We are a little behind due to our addiction to Scandal, but last Saturday night we set aside time for Fargo as the first episode will only be on SBS On Demand for another 2 days! If you are reading this after that time then I suggest you catch the first episode on Apple TV and then watch the rest on SBS, because it is good. 

Fargo Season 2 has that same slow drawl as the last season. Shocking events happening to seemingly random normal people and the story develops from there. Shot in Calgary, the scenery is again, stark but beautiful. And can we talk about how bouncy Kirsten Dunst’s hair is? An amazing effort from the Hair Department. All in all this season looks to be promising. Catch up before it disappears from SBS On Demand
