Wildlife by Heidi Klum Jewellery Collection 2012

Dear Social Friends,

Heidi Klum has presented her new Wildlife by Heidi Klum Jewellery Collection for Spring/Summer 2012 during a luncheon at the Hudson Hotel. The new collection includes watches, bracelets, necklaces, earrings, and rings. Take a look at the pics below and scroll down to see Heidi Klum posing for the beauty brand Astor ad campaign, 'dressed' only in body paint.

For Astor's beauty brand new ad campaign, "makeup artist Joanne Gair transformed me into a story of color--literally! The shoot was done to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the brand," posted Heidi Klum on her website.

"It took 12 hours for Joanne to complete my look, but this actually wasn't the first time she has painted me from head to toe. This was probably close to the 13th time I've been body painted by her, so I'm used to getting it done--the process takes awhile, so you have to be good at being patient! I don't mind sitting still for such a long time though, it's a living piece of art that I'm so honored to be a part of."

What do you think of Heidi's new Wildfire jewellery collection?

The ANZAC Day Tradition

Today April 25th marks ANZAC Day 2012, Australia's most important national occasion. It marks the anniversary of the first major military action fought by Australian and New Zealand troops.

ANZAC means - Australian and New Zealand Army Corps

Lest We Forget!

The 95th anniversary of the landing of Australian and New Zealand troops at Gallipoli, and the day above all that Australia and New Zealand traditionally remember their war dead, and all those who have served in the armed forces.

I hope you had a lovely ANZAC day.

New to Pinterest

Dear Social Friends,

I love searching pretty pictures and reading blogs that inspire me but lately I have noticed
 "follow me on Pinterest" buttons. I kept on thinking to myself what is this all about? Being new to the blogosphere network I had to see what the fuss was all about and now I am happy I requested to join.  I'm currently obsessing over Pinterest and adding beautiful pictures to my boards. I just can't get enough...

If a picture caught my interest, I used to downloaded it into one of the many fashion, wedding and home decor folders blocking up my hard drive, but now whenever I see a photo I like I simply click the Pin It button on my favorites bar, and it's saved into a folder of my choosing under my profile on the Pinterest site. I can share photos, interests and ideas with friends, and keep them organized all with the simple click of a button.

Do you have a Pinterest account? Follow me here
