Green is the new black.  I didn't read this in a magazine, I haven't been to the latest fashion shows, I just decided that I'm right about this.

Why green is the new black:

1.  It's easier to see at night (especially light green)
2.  It suits a brunette perfectly
3.  It makes me think of spring when it is grey and cold and foggy outside
4.  It's the colour of money if you live in the US.  Australian money would make quite a gaudy 80s outfit.
5.  Green is a stylish and classy colour (except perhaps anything in lime green spandex )

So, now that green has unofficially been declared the colour of Melbourne winter, here are a few ideas to get you started courtesy of my Kaboodle Style Board "It's Easy Being Green":

So, the little black dress is now replaced with the little green dress. Enjoy!

For the fifth time this month I have seen an all too familiar sight:

1.  A dog
2.  An absent owner (possibly shopping)
3.  A leash fastening the dog to a pole
4.  The dog shivering uncontrollably

Why?  Because it's COLD!

Dog owners please note:  A dog isn't able to dress itself in the morning the way that we do.  So, to compensate for this canine inadequacy, us dog owners need to dress the dog in appropriate clothing for the weather.  In Melbourne, for example, it has been 2 banshee shrieks close to freezing in Melbourne for the last few weeks.

Okay, that might be a slight exaggeration.  Since we don't really get snow or anything.  But... some dogs (especially small dogs) have a low tolerance to cold.  So if it is 14 degrees outside and you are wearing a scarf, please make sure your dog is dressed too.

It is easy to keep your dog warm and if your dog could speak (yes, I know some do - at least they do on YouTube), it would thank you from the bottom of its shivering heart.

No, I'm not talking about that kind of herbal!

This morning I woke up at 4:30am.  Then fell back to sleep at about 6am.  Not really the essential ingredients for a good night's rest.  So I braved the health food shop to find something to pep me up.

I needed something that:

Increased energy
Reduced fatigue
Reduced adrenal burnout
Reduced the effects of stress
Improved the ability to concentrate

The only problem is that feeling like this, I found it nearly impossible to find the dang thing.

Firstly I spotted the magic formula on the shelf.  I thought "I'll come back to that after I get my hair skin & nails formula".

Big mistake.

The thing about being scatty and tired and stressed is that you can't remember where you put things.

So to get the vitamins & herbs for my condition I had to try and not feel tired and stressed and scatty.  Which isn't easy to do when it is the very reason why I needed the herbs in the first place.

Sometimes life can just give you one big wedgie.

So after stressing my adrenal glands even more in order to find the blasted vitamins, I struck gold after about 8 excruciating minutes.


Someone needs to remind me that it's just easier to buy these things online.

Now I need a Panadol.
