I absolutely ADORE this image of these two ladies at the Melbourne Cup Carnival: those outfits! Their hats!

Kailey has started a series about fashion in film and has started with one of my faves: Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo + Juliet.

The square-toed boot is set to be this season’s footwear trend and Lisa has pondered its wearability (and longevity).

Carly’s ensuite bathroom makeover is all sorts of (realistic!) bathroom goals – extra points for the spreadeagled doggo.

I’m utterly obsessed with this knitted poncho, cropped trousers and mules combo*.

Queen of Sustainability Michelle has questioned whether it’s possible to do zero waste makeup and has listed some fabulous, sustainable make-up brands.

I’ve just discovered the impossibly cute Jill the Squirrel who’s a Hurricane Isaac rescue and sleeps with a miniature teddy bear. Absolutely adorable.

I love seeing what Samantha wears from one day to the next in her “What I Wore This Week – Real Life, Real Looks” posts.

Yes: “Appropriate dressing for your age? Ladies, in my opinion there’s no such thing.” Beth talks five rules every over 50 woman should break.

As someone who is also super afraid of needles(!) I was very interested in Andy’s description of the micro-needling treatment she had done.

Proof that head to toe camel is super flattering and super classy.

I’m in awe of Madeline Delp, Ms. Wheelchair USA 2017/18. She’s now competing in Miss North Carolina USA – could she be the first Miss USA in a wheelchair?

“So many feelings for one brain” – a teacher has collected all the funny things she’s heard kids say. Some are downright hilarious, some are incredibly wise.

After the Mother of Daughters debacle, Amber has likened Instagram to high school – and her analogy is absolutely spot-on.

    Omgosh that camel outfit is sublime. Thanks for the recommendation Catherine, I hadn’t seen Ahn’s blog before. Beautiful absolutely beautiful and her daughter is called Lucia too! I might have a little crush…
