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!!
