Playlist #1 - Memorable Movies

I've been listening to Richard Mercer's Love Song Dedications while driving at night recently and it made me think of starting a new blog series to keep a record of all the great songs that I hear on the radio and elsewhere. Tonight, after watching the end of Dirty Dancing on TV, the infamous dance scene between Johnny and Baby gave me the idea for the theme of my first song blog...

  1. (I've had) the time of my life - Bill Medley & Jennifer Warnes [Dirty Dancing]
  2. I will always love you - Whitney Houston [The Bodyguard]
  3. Come what may - Nicole Kidman & Ewan McGregor [Moulin Rouge]
  4. I don't wanna miss a thing - Aerosmith [Armageddon]
  5. My heart will go on - Celine Dion [Titanic]
  6. When you say nothing at all - Ronan Keating [Notting Hill]
  7. Endless Love - Lionel Ritchie & Diana Ross [Endless Love]
  8. Unchained melody - Righteous Brothers [Ghost]
  9. Can you feel the love tonight - Elton John [The Lion King]
  10. A whole new world - Peabo Bryson & Regina Belle [Aladdin]

Flower jars

It's been way too long since my last post, but after the craziness of exams and catching up on work, I finally have a couple of weeks of holidays to get back into the swing of things and start documenting all the inspirational ideas that I've back logged over the last few months.

First of all, this is a cheap and easy idea for a quick table top decoration that you may need for any event you may have, whether it be a dinner party, a wedding or even a backyard barbecue. The idea of have a mix of blooming flowers and greens placed in assorted jars and decorated with some complementary ribbon is such a simple, delicate and rustic idea that I have completely fell in love with. It's so easy to collect jars in all different sizes - tall pasta jars, small sauce jars, round salsa jars - ever since I've found this idea, I've been consciously washing all the glass jars we use and storing them for future use. You can even use them for candles, drinks or lollies to add an extra dimension to the basic flower idea to create something really personal for you special event.

Cheesecake in a jar

This great idea is courtesy of Sarah Hearts and it's so simple yet brilliant that I can't help but take note of it for future use!
