It's that time of the year again, and I always love to see what the celebrities are dressing as for Halloween. Michelle T definitely takes the cake in her pageant princess outfit but who can go past Snooki dressed as a pickle!

Halloween Village Parade 2009 NYC

Last year I travelled to NYC to cover the Halloween Village parade for Channel V. Having never celebrated Halloween the experience was mind blowing. Thousands upon thousands of people spared no expense on costumes or creativity. Here are some of the images I managed to capture.

Ten Times Rosie

Images from google images

I have always been slighty obsessed with Rosie Huntington-Whiteley but seeing some of these amazing shots taken by british photographer Lankin, it's not hard to see why. Lankin shot Rosie for a high end fashion photography book called ten times Rosie featuring clothing by Thomas Wylde.

One reason to tune into 90210

Girl Crush alert............
American actress Gillian Zinser is one good reason why you should tune into the new series of 90210. Her easy going, bohemian style on and off screen is definitely swoon worthy.

Plane etiquette

I have spent a fair bit of my life on airplanes and I think that anyone that travels regularly has a routine. Mine has become quite the ritual. I get in my seat, headphones straight on and choose a movie. As the movie starts I make myself comfortable. Shoes come off, neck cushion inflated and blanket out. Then by the time the meal comes my movie is almost over. Quick trip to the bathroom to brush the teeth and clean the face. Back to the seat, ear plugs on with headphones on top and off to dream land I go.......... well this is normally the plan!

You may ask why the headphones are on before anything else..... well to this I say 'Privacy.'
There's something about headphones and a direct stare to the screen that normally lets people know you are not to be bothered. So you would think?

I guess that if you are spending 14 + hours with someone in very close proximity it would be nice to have some communication...... Maybe a 'hello how are you,' would suffice?   Do you like to get to know the person sitting next to you? Do you think it is necessary to know their life story before embarking half way across the globe together?

Or like me do you take your plane time to shut out the world and completely relax and unwind?
I have had many strange experiences on planes. Not too long ago I woke up from a nap to my neighbour drawing a portrait of me.... not only that but in the picture my mouth was wide open, (not my most flattering angle.) But the fact that he had been staring at me and sketching this entire time was a little creepy to say the least. As if this wasn't enough but during my flight home the passenger next to me informed me that he was returning to Australia as he had been sick with the swine flu.... wonderful!

I often find it hard being in the middle seat. My last trip I was wedged between two burly men who both took up my leg room. I woke up with one of their arms hanging over my side and one of their legs clearly in my foot area and one man even had his head resting on my pillow!  kind of strange getting all cosy with complete strangers. At least buy me a drink first!? But the space thing is a tricky one, there should be a line outlining where your own body parts must stay in flight.
However if you are sitting in the window seat and wake up busting to go to the toilet  you then must crawl over your neighbours. Trust me if they wake up while you are attempting to launch your self over them it can give them quite a fright and be awkward to say the least.

So does plane etiquette exist? Should there be a little pamphlet on the do's and dont's of air travel? Or does all of this just make for a more exciting adventure? I wonder who I will meet up in the air next time..........

Gossip Girl Style Stakes

I don't know about you but I am dying for the fashion on this season of Gossip Girl. With Blaire and Serena in Paris the outfits we are seeing are totally drool worthy. check out my faves below!
Blaire dressed in a mix print Moschino dress and Louboutins and Serena  in Georges Chakra dress and Rag and Bone blazer. Loving the beret and straw hat... very Parisian chic.

Serena looking divine in pink Suno pants, Stella McCartney tank and Dries Van Noten booties.

Serena teams a green frilly dress with a wide brimmed sun hat for a stroll through the streets of Paris.

Serena scores ten out of ten for this amazing ensemble. A gold  Emilio Pucci jacket teamed with electric blue Tibi pants.
