The Melbourne Cup

I would like to take a step side ways and post something non-fashion related.
Yesterday was the Melbourne Cup here is Australia, the largest horse racing even in Australia.
I have myself bet and gone to horse racing and enjoyed the dressing up for the occasion!
But yesterday has left a sour taste in my mouth for two reasons.
Tragically two of the horses who ran in the main event passed away after the race. The first was a Japanese horse Admire Rakti, who was the favourite to win the race. He came last and shortly after the race collapsed and died in his stall - experts are suspecting he suffered a massive heart attack due to the pressure of the race. The second was Araldo who had to be put down after breaking his leg after being walked back to his stall. Someone in the crowd waved a flag too close to his face and he got spooked thus kicking a fence breaking his leg, the damage was un-reversible thus having his owner make the decision to end his life humanly. I feel heartbroken by what has happened to those two poor horses. I feel this industry is just for humans entertainment at animals expense. As such I will no longer attend, bet or be involved in any kind of race horsing event.

RIP -  Admire Rakti
 RIP - Araldo

Also the people I saw walking home yesterday or around the city was absolute trash! I had to step over so much vomit and rubbish on the way into the city today, its embarrassing and just resonates the fact that we just use Melbourne Cup as an excuse to get absolutely trashed and act with no class what so ever! I hope this event even though it does bring people together and creates excitement, gets cancelled as the pictures show below just how classy this event really is.

Mondayistis & Weekend Wrap up!

MONDAY! Why do you come around so fast!! I am currently already at work at 7:22am in the morning after a rough nights sleep :( Have a long day ahead of me with Ellie finally going to puppy school tonight! Yay I hope she does well and doesn't growl at the other dogs LOL:) she can get quite rough thinking she is some massive bulldog or something!
So I had a little visitor on Friday night, my brother and sister in law came over to see me as they just got back from Europe and when my brother tried to go to leave he couldn't slide the front door open, I was thinking great the door is broken! But then my sister in law screams 'WHAT THE HELL IS THAT!!'
So it was just a little echidna just chilling! Haha I rang the wildlife rescue and they said it will move on by its self and after an hour or so it did. So strange I have never seen one before except at zoo's, it was massive!!
 The rest of my weekend consisted of watching season 1 of gossip girl (I finally brought the box set on Saturday, it was on sale for $90 - so cheap!! And a bit of baking. I made these baked cinnamon donuts, they are soooo good, like you think they were store bought from donut king or something! but they are aren't are bad for you as they have hardly any butter or sugar in them, have a secret natural ingredient that gives them there sweetness! But I did roll them in cinnamon sugar after, how could I not!! Let me know if any one would like the recipe, it soooo easy!
And lastly just some pics of my girls :) Ellie is getting so big and she is getting such a personality :) She is a little weirdo hahaha, like in that middle photo she stares at you all the time! Such a stare bear! You will be watching TV or looking on your phone and you will look up and there she is just staring at you! Tia is so good with her too! Even when she jumps on her back from the couch or tries to bite her tail....I am such a dog mum!
Hope everyone had a good weekend!!

Lauren Conrad, I have loved LC ever since the days of Laguna Beach, then The Hills!
I love her style how it has evolved since those days but remains very classic. I follow her blog and and her hair has always remained the same classic style. I would take her photo to my hair dressers and ask for her curls and recently this year her blonde summer colour...
She posted the below photo's recently for the making of her Halloween costume and her hair is just PERFECT! The colour, the root fade, the length and curls! Everything I am obsessed and will be taking this picture next time I see my wonderful hair dresser!

  Not to mention, her outfit is super cute too! Love a good chambray and white sneaker combo :)
So as you can tell yes she is a bit of a hair and fashion idol for me, I even brought her books, they have so many handy beauty hacks and fashion tips! Love it.
So I was shocked and surprised to see the below photo pop up only yesterday on a celebrity gossip site. She did what I never have the balls to do - the Lob! Post wedding of course! :)

She looks fantastic, as always! Everything suits her!(jealousy is overwhelming)
What do you think of her new crop? Be interesting to see how she styles it as she is the braid and soft curl queen!

Just a quick post! Been busy with work and my birthday week!! I am always really busy at month end due to working in the accounting field! Looking forward to the weekend, planning a quiet one as Jacob flies back to work tomorrow, plans are to blog, whip up some tasty recipes and get some exercise in (along with washing, laundry, and housework but that stuff is boring!) As well as training my naughty Ellie! She is getting better but just loves being so cheeky! I swear she thinks she is 10 foot tall and 100 kilo's not this tiny little baby! Puppy school was meant to start this week but the trainer called in sick, so its been delayed until next week, just want to get her in so we can sort her out especially her toilet training!

On another note, I have been obsessed with the ripped jeans trend for a while now, and the styles are finally hitting aussie shores (we are so behind the times still!!) I purchased two pairs over the weekend from and cannot wait for them to arrive. I went with two high waisted with rips at the knee's, one is a dark denim while the other is lighter. Will post once I receive them :)

Talk Soon XXX

Blog Stigma

Still trying to figure out what I want this blog to be? I figured fashion would be best since its what I am passionate and could easily right about but then I feel that's not what there is all to me. I have many passions and hobbies and just stuff going on in my life! I am thinking it will be more of a lifestyle blog? But I don't really want to put a label on it. So I will just keep posting what I feel like, fashion, makeup, food (as in baking)! Diet, exercise and just life in general. Because its not just one particular thing that makes up a whole person. Sometimes I feel fashion bloggers or food bloggers or even youtubers I follow get really run down and sometimes when they do try post something different that they get hounded for it. But people in general usually have more than one interest or may have lost or gained inspiration to try something different! This is how my title came to be, as I have  had it in my mind for years...About A Girl. Girls are complex and we have many things going on, the ultimate multi-taskers :) Hears to people who blog wanting to be whatever they want to be without the labels, stigma's and everything else. Hears to writing about what ever we feel like writing about on any particular day!
