Love the Coopers
There is nothing I love more than a Christmas movie, except a Christmas movie with Dianne Keaton. This movie not only has Dianne Keaton, but also many more actors that I love. It looks to be a fabulous, feel good movie. 

Christmas Eve
This movie is shamelessly appealing to all lovers of Love Actually. I know I’m going to love it. 

The Night Before 
This is your classic bromance movie. I’m not sure if I’ll love it, but I do love most of the actors in it. plus there is a cameo from Mindy Kaling so I’ll give it a go.

Christmas can get a little hectic. The social schedule, fitting in work in between, the shopping, the cooking. Sometimes we just need one bit to become a little simplified. Today I'm sharing a few simple ways to decorate for Christmas.

1. Table Decorations
Choose a simple piece of greenery and some pinecones. Add in a decoration or two and you have a simple table setting.

2. Hanging Decorations
Decorations aren't just for the tree. Hang a few in different places around the room. Simple.

There is nothing that cannot be made better with fairy lights.

4. You do not need a big green tree
Eucalypts in the garden dropping big branches all over the yard? Collect a few, whack them in a jar/vase and hang a few decorations & wa la! Christmas tree!! This is my favourite way to decorate when we are heading out of town for Christmas but still want a few decorations for the weeks leading up to when we leave. No one wants to come home in early January to a large green tree, but a few sticks are easily packed away on your return from holiday.

And there you have it. A few simple ways to decorate for Christmas. What are your go to simple Christmas decorating tips? Do you have a tried and true decorating tip that helps you through this busy time? Please let me know in the comments below.

Fashionably Late with Rachel Zoe

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....
