Downton Abbey Obsession

Yep I have an obsession! 

Well actually I have lots of obsessions! It seems that I become easily obsessed with things! Pez dispensers, Johnny Depp movies and tshirts (I even have a Johnny Depp Pez dispenser! Go figure), Robbie Williams merchandise, Elvis Presley, Marilyn Monroe, the rat pack, Disney movies, Greys Anatomy.....you see what I mean? I can go on and on....I have little collections all over the house! 

But the newest obsession has been Downton Abbey! Oh my gosh! I just want to fall into a Downton Abbey episode and live there.....sigh! What I would give to live in that era.....where people actually talk to each other all day and wear fancy clothes and drink tea.....I just love it! 

The women look so classy and mature and just don't get me started on that house. The decor is Devine! I have decided to create my house in this style.....more reasons to get out and do some antique/vintage shopping :) 

Talking about shopping, I headed out today with my husband (yeah I still love saying that word hehe) and with my new obsession on my mind I noticed this book on the shelf at BigW and of course I had to grab it......

It's called 'While We Were Watching Downton Abbey' and apparently it's about a group of women who get together and watch Downton Abbey and all realise things about themselves....similar to 'the Jane Austen Book Club'.......so it looks like it will be right up my alley! I will let you know what it's like when I'm finished! 

Now I'm going to grab a cup of tea and snuggle in for a night of the latest Downton Abbey episodes :) 

Sigh! The characters in this show totally rock! 

Night all and keep smiling xx

Juicing and flowers

Being a wife is starting to affect my daily duties. In the most amazing way possible! I am happier and the life around me is becoming a happier place too.....which is strange because I was happy before but this is a whole new version of happy!

I have flowers in my house.....not the fake ones.....the real ones! My house smells lovely and I keep seeing pops of colour! Go figure! I want to get out into the garden and grow everything......more flowers for a start so I can fill my house with more colours every week.

And the juicing? Well don't get me started! Since being on my honeymoon in Bali I'm addicted to juicing so if course I want to get started on my veggie patch and herb garden....like immediately! 

The house is having a make over with all my wifey ideas and plans....organisation is my new favourite word. 

But back to juicing (cause I've been doing housework all day and don't want to talk about it). I just made as crummy juice for my afternoon snack with my most hated thing.....spinach! And I am in love! Can you believe it? 

This one was simple: 

2 apples
A big handful of spinach
1 celery stalk
1/8th of a lime
And a handful of mint

Yum! That's all I can say.....

Now I'm going back to drawing up my garden plans!
