2010 Oscar winners will be speech-less

No more long boring speeches that will have viewers changing channels and the audience nodding off! How many moms, dads, great-aunts, cats, fridges, dead yoga teachers will go unthanked now that the Oscar speeches have been cut to 45 seconds? Seems the public are bored with the tearful thank yous and once we've seen the dress we want things to move along ... fast!

Viewing numbers have fallen through the floor since the all time high of 55 mil when Titanic was the movie of the year. Here's a vid that might explain why ...

Getting The Hipster Look - The Four Basics

I'm a fan of the hipster look and getting it together is really easy. Here's the essentials any wannabe hipster chick will need in her wardrobe ..

Getting the Hipster Look

1. Skinnies ... worn out skinny jeans in any colour so long as they're tight enough to stop you breathing. Black is best because black matches with eveything.
2. Old worn out converse ... if yours are clean and new go out there and dig some dirt with your feet. Your converse can NEVER look new!
3. A Keffiyeh or the Palestinian scarf . Wear it ike a napkin or a bib and you’re good to go.
4. The simple tee ... not you're I'm with stupid type. Something ironic or retro and yes, tight fitting!

Once you've got the basics together, add tight fitting hoodies, some cool accessories like multi-coloured belts with crazy buckles and of course, a pair of ray-bans or something equally hip!

Five Minute Microwave Mug Muffins ... Yum!

I am the queen of chocolate cake. No other cake is good enough for me. Chocolate cake is the only cake I eat and now that I can make one in less than five minutes, it's like I've been granted a chocolate cake magic wandifier!

Here's the recipe for 5 minute microwave mug muffins so you can enjoy this little miracle in baking too.
