¡Viva Mexicana!

Puebla, Mexico

¡Hola chikkas!,

I´m currently gallivanting around Central America (hence my lack of posts). Although i am planning a fairly epic ¨Jaimie´s guide to 2009¨, I felt I needed to highlight some of my favourite (or rather, most memorable) moments of this year.

1. The Caribbean Sea (fuck yes)

2. Animal Collective

3. Phoenix (this is probably my favourite video of the year)

4. Boys

5. Simon and Garfunkel on my mother flipping birthday!

Happy new year lovers.
2009 was interesting...

Christmas Twist List

Merry Christmas millionaires!

This is my Christmas with a twist wish list.

Top of my Christmas wish list this year? This great BFF charm necklace from In God We Trust (available on Bona Drag). BFF, but not exactly as you expect it. Plus, you get to give and receive.

Who better to do a twisted version on the 12 days of Christmas than David Lynch. If you've seen Twin Peaks than this will be great for you. If you haven't...well, you'll probably be really confused.

Found here via here

So the twist with this last one is that it has nothing to do with Christmas really, but see it as a hilarious gift from me to you. Merry Christmas!

Props for this one go to my sis. Because she is awesome.

How incredible are these sketchbook drawings by Melbourne artist Miso? She does amazing street art too, and is 20 (!) years old.

Dear Pistachios,

I'm sorry we've abandoned you so much of late.

Maybe this floral scull* will make it up to you?

I hope so...it's really all I have.

*The scull is by ultra talented Melbourne artist/jeweler Irene Grishin-Selzer. Check her out, yo.

Jaimie & Vanessa: Spotlight on Gentlemanly Rogues

V: Ohh, that's good.
J: Mmm, that is good.

J: Hey Vanessa, I really like boys.

V: Yeah. I know. Me too...

J: Maybe we're boy crazy?

V: Probably.

J: I think about boys in tight jeans a lot.

V: Mmm, tight jeans are the best. But I also like tailored pants.

J: Like some kind of "gentleman" would wear?

V: Precisely.

J: Like Rhett Butler from Gone with the Wind? Mmm, he's so fine.

V: Totally. Though he's a bit of a rogue.

J: Oh, he's a gentlemanly rogue!*

V: Ooo, I like that.

J: Yeah. They're like polite, charming, good-lookin' man whores.

V: Like James Bond? Or Eric from True Blood?

J: Mmm, or Mal from Firefly.

V: Awesome, space cowboy!

V: Yeah...I would have preferred one with a gun.
J: Oh Ness, he has a gun...

V: Where's Eric's photo?
J: Ness, I've posted a picture of Eric before.
V: But he's so hot he deserves more pictures. MORE ERIC.

J: Oh my god! BRUCE WILLIS!!!!!

V: Dude, what is your obsession with Bruce Willis?

J: Nicholas Cage...?

V: .....

J: Come on!
V: ...

J: Fine Vanessa. They're just flimsy crushes, I really want to marry Chuck Bass and his tailored pants.

V: You're not Blair, Jaimie.
J: Serena...?

V: Back on the bandwagon girlfriend. My dreamboat has to be Daniel Desario from Freaks and Geeks. So much love. Mmm, tight pants.

J: No pants.

V: Pants are for geeks.

J: You're a freak.

V: Look.At.Him.
J: I bet he caught it himself.
V: Totally. What a rogue.

*BAM! That's the title of our post!

Lasso My Heart Already Prince

Hottie found via the Sartorialist

Dearest Prince Charming,

I've been thinking. Roses are really great and all that, but I'm pretty tops and when the time comes for you to woo me, I think I'm going to need something more than a few dead flowers. Don't get me wrong, I'm still expecting a dozen red roses on our first date (minimum), but when you're starting to wonder what you need to do to lasso this wild heart of mine consider this... Not just a bunch of roses, but an entire rose garden!!!

I found out today that you can sponsor a rose in the Old Parliament House Gardens. You get a plaque with a dedication and everything. Maybe you should check out this site for more information. I believe it would be acceptably romantic to propose to me next to my rose bush.

I do hope that you take this advice into consideration.

Your beautiful lady to be,



PS- If you are the hottie in this photo, I think it's about time you got in contact with me. A comment to this post will be seen as an acceptable way to initiate contact.
