When I say "Bite Me", I don't mean it!!!!

Obviously I have been off line for a few days, but the people following me on Facebook and Twitter would have know the story of my Horse Bite, Yes, a horse Bite.
I have been high as a kite and unable to walk and sleep and after 5 days still have no feeling in my leg.
Missing horse riding incredibly I decided to take a friend riding on the beach forgetting they are trail riding nags.  The horses I owned would never have had any vices, I have no time for rude animals.
We decided to have a chat and my horse decided to kick out at my friends horse and then a 17 hand buckskin decided to aggressively bite me instead of the horse.  I was belly aching the whole trip after letting a couple of F Bombs let loose making sure there were no children on the ride.  The ride was only 1/2 hour in with another 2 hours to go.  Everyone thought I was making a bit of a fuss, which I was.

When we arrived back at the trail ride place, I had to pull down my pant, (that must be why mum always says have you clean undies on???) and everyone understood why I was in so much pain.  I have been on codine and panadine forte and then Morphine, looking like a druggo and sleeping half the day with only being able to sleep on one side.

Today I have broken through the pain barrier, it has been drained twice and Japanese burning acupuncture.  I have been taking anything and everything to bring out the bruising and as you can see, the bruising is coming out quite well.

Moral to the story, never ask anyone to kiss your butt, because if you are not watching, those B*%&^s may BITE!!!!  ha ha, Gotta Laugh.

That night

Day 2

Day 3

Day 4

Today, day 5

On a lighter note, I did see 2 golden orb spiders that are incredibly good luck.

I have no right to say anything today.  Today we all remember our Diggers.  For those who we have lost, we thank you for the country we have today.  Please listen to the last post and remember those who fought for freedom in this country we have today.

Images that my friends have posted through facebook.
This is a bonus of Facebook that we all get together and share the things that really matter.  To all the ANZACs.  God Bless YOU! xxxxx

Carla Zampatti 2012 Spring Summer

Photo from Carla Zampatti Facebook Page, Click Here.

Still pinching myself. 5 years ago when I started Racing Fashion Australia I had not idea what so ever that I would be sitting in not only one of Australia's most respected fashion designers home, but sit with masses of fashions 'A' list of Australia. Carla Zampatti generously opened the doors of her home to fashion royalty in Australia to experience her 2012 Spring Summer collection and I could not have been more excited for the racing fashion community.
Whenever any Lady walks past a Carla Zampatti window, there is always a wow factor sitting in the window, saying, yes Carla had you in mind. That is right, Carla has you in mind, the Australian woman. Carla blesses us with her unique style that can integrate from the gorgeous Miranda Kerr of size, Victoria Secret to myself hitting 40 in August with a body of 2 children, to my mothers age which she calls 40 as well. Hmmmm, strange how that can work.
Carla Zampatti has such remarkable innovative style that can make any woman feel fabulous. The parade in the opulent surrounds of one of Sydneys most exclusive addresses would have been Posh Beckham worthy.
Although the designs were on glamerzonian beauties, there was something for everyone and it seems every box has been ticked. Think romance, think pastel and sorbet lace with a touch of Carla's unique statement colour of close the the Pantone colour of the year Tangerine, there was not a lady in the room that was not relating to this collection. Even though Barry Humphries was sitting in front of me, I could see he was taking notes for his client Dame Edna. May I add, Mr Humphries was saluting the millinery tradition like myself wearing a hat for the day. I was a little excited about Jonathan Howard's (Hatmaker) piece he had crafted for me, to be subtle enough to hight light my favourite Prada Lace suit although not detract from it. All in all, Romance, Pastel, and ladylike elegance. Carla Zampatti is going to be a huge hit come Spring Carnival this year and again transform the staple of Melbourne Derby Day from Black and white to a palette of gelato flavoured colours. Forget the heights of your hems as well ladies, unless you are wearing a balloon skirt or shorts, allow you hems to scoot across the floor. Get ready to head straight to the nearest lingerie store as you are going to have to adorn yourself in flesh coloured undergarments for the sheer nature of this collection. Bathers, Resort wear, Evening, Cocktail as well as office has all been covered, so look no further, Carla has spoken with no need to leave the tranquillity of her beautiful home. Sydney Welcome to Fashion Week!

Pink Ribbon Day at Caulfield Races

Pink Ribbon Day, the first thing that comes to mind heading to the races is to get all frocked up with a fabulous hat, but Pink Ribbon Day to many means so much more. Pete White lost his beautiful sister in her early 30s, a mother of two beautiful children to breast cancer. This is a charity close to every woman’s heart.
In Far North Queensland I know how long the flight is and another few days without my children, but I decided to support the cause and my friend Danica Erard who made hats for the day and the most coveted millinery, perspex, 'Couture for a Cause'.
Yes, we have the glamour of the races and looking and feeling fantastic, we had Champagne and the sun was shining, by the end of the day everyone had on their dancing shoes. Congratulations to Pete White, his brother and the beautiful Kate for bringing this day along with sponsors 7Eleven to have Breast Cancer Awareness and the legacy of his sister a part of Thoroughbred Racing History. Here are a few snaps from the day and after party, and all my gambling money went straight into the plastic collectors. The day was more than fashion, it was “Ladies, CHECK YOR BOOBS”. More photos to come soon on .
Congratulations to the wonderful Madeline Jones wearing fluro pink receiving flowers and Danica Erard Millinery, Madeline is a nurse and well deserving of this fantastic prize.
