A mini update and it's for you...

Darlings, how are you all doing?  I have been well and on the verge of quite a few life changes -  The biggest of those changes being my job - I am pretty excited to share with you that from next week I will be working at a fabulous women's magazine. I will admit, that I'm a tinsy bit nervous , but I also cannot wait to take on a new challenge and make the most of this great oppurtunity :)

Anyway, today I noticed that it has been a very long time  since i've done an "its for you" post  - So I thought I would...

How it always works: I will answer the below random questions - then you answer the questions as a comment. Why? cause sharing is caring *winks*:

1. Today I feel... very optimistic  and happy to see some sunshine
2. Last night.... I trotted around the Waterfront mall,  bought a smoothie recipe book, ate some vegetable soup and watched some Stargate Universe
3. This week I still plan to... go to gym at least once, be happy, go out to a few dinners, get my hair blowdryed and make some smoothies
4. Right now I would love to have... some new music, a shellac manicure (it apparently lasts 2 weeks), a bottle of Chanel's Coco Mademoiselle perfume, a black leather clutch bag, more time to read and a romantic weekend away with The Boyf.
5. My current ring tone is... 'The dog days are over' by Florence & The Machine
6. Who do you think is cooler/more dateable - Superman or Batman? Well, Batman clearly has the better outfit, an awesome car and he is a billionaire, BUT Superman has real super powers, can fly and comes from another planet. I'm on the fence ;)
