The Fourth of May isn’t just Star Wars Day – it is our wedding anniversary. We were well into the wedding planning stage when we realised that the Fourth of May turned around becomes May the Fourth be with you. You’ll be delighted to know that I didn’t sport Princess Leia buns for my wedding ‘do.
Brand Ambassador Post
We’re going to be away for New Year’s Eve this year, and I’m trying to pack lightly. i try every holiday to pack lightly – I try really hard. Honestly. But I always seem to leave half the items I need at home to get the outfit to work, get stumped by unexpectedly hot or cold or wet weather, or overpack. Chronic overpacker right here. So I’m trying a bit of advance outfit planning.
I think I’ve come up with a New Year’s Eve winner this year, thanks to Brown Sugar. I’m proud to work with Brown Sugar as a Brand Ambassador.
Brown Sugar Sateen Parker Print Pants and Lace Shell Top
I’m very honoured to be a Brown Sugar Brand Ambassador – an iconic Australian company that is suited perfectly to my lifestyle. I just love these Brown Sugar pieces together – the pretty Lace Shell Top and the on trend and flattering Sateen Parker Print Pants.

This time of year sees the Welshman and me busy with parties and get togethers and functions – unfortunately not usually together. On Saturday night, we had a fab night with friends – great food, great conversation, great quantities of alcohol … you know the drill.

Melbourne Cup 2012 and it was a work day for me. A work day with a team barbecue for lunch and a big screen TV tuned to the Melbourne Cup coverage nonetheless. I was not remotely trackside. I didn’t even place a bet. Actually, I didn’t even see the race. But did I frock up and wear a hat regardless? You bet your little fascinator I did!

At the Rozcars school fundraising event earlier this year, one of the items up for auction was an evening’s entertainment by the fabulous school parent band, Parental as Anything. Yes, it is a fabulous name, isn’t it. All my own work, thank you very much! Don’t roll your eyes at the term “parent band”. They are honestly fabulously talented. Two of the members won ABC 702′s Inaugural Exhumed competition. Parental as Anything have definitely got it – in spades.
The Welshman and I had a date night on the first day of Spring. It was the final event in the Festival of Kimba, spoilt brat that I am. We had tickets to see Wil Anderson, with enough time for a quick drink first and Chinese dinner afterwards. Boyo was in seventh heaven, knowing his lovely babysitter was coming to spend the evening with him.
Now, don’t get me wrong. I love fancy pants date nights, when high heels and posh frocks are de rigueur for a celebrity chef hatted restaurant and a chic cocktail menu I adore them – the opportunity to frock up is one that doesn’t come around very often as parents of a small child.
The fabulous Andrea from Fox in Flats recently issued another Style Dare – wear flowers for the Fox in Flats Flower Dare every day for a week or be branded a chicken. As a Fox in Flats Top 50 Style Blogger, I have standards to uphold and I wasn’t going to let her call me chicken! Bok, bok, bok …
Luckily. my wardrobe is stuffed full of floral delights, so it wasn’t too difficult to fly the floral flag for the Fox in Flats Flower Dare.

On Sunday, the Antipodean nations celebrated some pretty cool dudes in our lives for Father’s Day. We made sure the Welshman had a special day. He started off with a little sleep in, a full English at one of our favourite cafes, then an exciting trip to the supermarket. Oh no, it wasn’t as bad as it sounds. The trip was to acquire a new Pokemon DVD that Boyo was very keen on. I sacrificed my sanity to watch it with Boyo, freeing the Welshman for hours of uninterrupted newspaper reading. He read all the weekend papers before the end of the weekend. Amazing, I know!
Really, Really, Ridiculously Good Looking Monday.
On Friday, I attended the inaugural Sportscraft show at Mercedes Benz Fashion Festival Sydney. I was lucky enough to win tickets, and had a great afternoon with my BFF. She’s a little camera shy.
