My new boyfriend Mark-Francis Vandelli.

I have to admit that I have yet to see much of Made In Chelsea.

Well, until I got foxtel installed a month ago, now I'm perfecting my accent and reminiscing of the time I leapt around the West End in my pyjamas and fur coat.

And I'm kinda in love with Mark-Francis Vandelli.

Who would rob the rich?!!!

I agree.

Bye Mark-Francis

Authentic Reading

One of my new years resolutions for 2013 was to read 52 books.

I finally finished my first. It by Alexa Chung, probably the most authentic book ever.

Partner in crime: It's not even a proper book

Moloko: That's not true. It has pictures. And there is a paragraph about only dating rock stars

Whatever you're selling, I'm buying.

Its the beginning of the Olympic season. In 5 or so months, the general public will pretend it cares about figure skating.

Can't wait.

What is our Chairman Mao selling? Whatever it is, I'll take two!

The Ice 2013

A little sneak preview of The Ice 2013.

The figure skating off season is like the death valley of my life.
Clips like this are like rays of sunshine on the horizon.

Is Mao going to do a sexy exhibition? Is that a fabric bust line?

Chairman Mao, rising again ♥

Justin Bieber... Oh My!

Being the mob nonna age that I am, I have managed, and quite easily I might add, to avoid any sort of Bieber Fever. Pretty much the only thing I know about him is he dates Selena Gomez (ultimate babe). Oh, and he sings. But what does he sing?

I was so unaware of Bieber, living the jingle jangle folk world that I do. Having only heard the chorus of Beauty and a Beat* I thought it was actually a Skrillex tune.

Sorry Sonny.

Miss you Sonny/Emily.

*I thought it was "Beauty and a Bee". Actually.

Life Lessons from Beverly Hills (Nein Oh Two Won Oh)

It is rarely disputed that I have superior taste in television. Beverly Hill 90210 has been one of my favourite TV shows since I was 7 years old, hiding under my Nannie and Papa's table while my family ate family dinner, watching without the fear of embarrassment of all the make out scenes. Seeing that there few things in life that I love more than a marathon, I figured it was time to watch my beloved 90210 from beginning to the end - something I actually never did in the 90's (too much skating for teen soaps!)

Pity I never did watch it all the way through back then. So many life lessons. And whilst I am currently only have way through season 6, perhaps it is time to explore some of these lessons.

1) It is totally ok to steal your best friends boyfriend.
The Brenda/Kelly/Dylan triangle was one of the best in TV history. But really, how was this even a triangle? Kelly straight up stole him, that blonde thief! Not even the virtuous Donna seemed to think that this behaviour was wrong.

2) If you "want to wait" your boyfriend will cheat on you. 
Sorry Donna, you didn't put out, so your boyfriend(s) found someone who would.

3) After high school, you will all still be together.
Despite the hang making plans to go to colleges across country or travel after high school, they all end up and the fictitious California University. Pfft, who is going to go to the Ivy League when you can go to a college that doesn't even exist.

4) If you have a drink, you will crash your car/end up in jail/be suspended from school.
Bad things happen to people who have a drink on BH. The beer there is even magical, it makes you hallucinate after a 6 pack. WOO!

5) Punishments are actually rewards.
Who is going to follow the rules (or the law) when breaking them gets you a trip to Paris/London? Those Walshes, experts in parenting.

Aaron Spelling... what do you have in store for us next?

The 90s.... A cruel cruel time.

In 1996 a Western Australian news paper published an article about the "perfect thigh". It detailed what were the perfect measurement for said thigh (and rest of the leg), naming the magical number at 42 cm. At 12 years old, with thighs that were far from "perfect" this was crushing.

But hey, this was the 90s, and whilst many may fuss over having a thigh gap* these days (or only wanting someone with a thigh gap...) the last decade of the 20th century was not kind to women who weren't Kate Moss.

Its hard to not believe the hype, especially for one so young. And on that note, I would like to apologise to the following ladies for believing them to fat in the 90s.

Poor Ginger Spice received probably the most uncalled for fat remarks. Clearly not fat. 

Looking pretty banging in the Say You'll Be There clip (a peronal favourite). 
Seriously, the issue here is not body mass, its just that she was just wearing underpants - always.

On that note, I unfairly branded poor Emma Bunton as less than desirable. 
Um, can I look like that now, please? 

(I die for this hair/makeup)

Melissa Joan Hart faired unfairly also. 
Not just from me however, poor Sabrina was a  constant target for fat jokes from 15 year old boys from the school yard. Because, you know, they would have totally turned her down. 

Melissa's biggest issue was that her look was too much like Britney Spears'. And those crazy turn of the century tinted glasses 

Finally, that babe Alicia Silverstone. This is 90's fattism at its worse. 

Seriously, amazing.

*thigh gaps make me laugh. especially as they are only possible for those with wider (!!!!) hips.

Downton Abbey.

This week I took upon the arduous task of getting into Downton Abbey.
Like most "marathoning challanges" I threw my self into it, having completed 3 seasons
and two Christmas specials. It is the best.

Apparently now I have to wait until September like a commoner to see the new season.

Maggie Smith would not be pleased.

Meanwhile, who weird is it to see our favourite Lord's and Ladies dressed in attire from this century.

Oh Daisy, that midrift is pure scandal! 

Please come soon September.

Flying and trendy diets

Upon booking my flights back to the wild west, I went to add in my food preference... turns out I can't be gluten free AND vegetarian whilst on my bourgeois fight.

My life is hard.

The Carrie Diaries

I thought that Carrie's dad left her and her mum when she was 5 years old (as per A Vogue Idea - Season 4).

Few things annoy me as much as mistakes in continuity...
