Racing Day Love

Ben & I in the stands

My gorgeous darling friends Suzie & Georgie, who you will remember as my party planners, decided to hold their joint birthday party at the races! We were there a couple days after Melbourne cup so it was pretty full & all the fashionistas of Sydney were out in force!

Ben, Ben, Me & Suzie! If you look closely you can see that i have three drinks in my hands... Its not my fault everyone kept buying me one and i suddenly realised i had too many to hold! (so i was generous and gave them away! hahaha)

We spent many weekends in preparation & shopping for that perfect races outfit. I already had a dress that I was dying to take out on the town so I just needed a great hat & some fabulous shoes (and a couple odds and ends to complete it) and I was good to go!
I had such a great time. We spent the day with friends sipping champagne ever so elegantly in the stands, only stopping our chitter chatter and laughter every half hour or so to watch the horses go by.

Suzie & I on Ben's balcony - seriously, this is the view from his apartment! I have a bit of double-chinage going on but i love it! hahaha

After a very civilized day, a few of us carried on into the night.. well, it was more like the late morning! Either way, high five to Suzie & Georgie for a cracking birthday party!

Suzie & I

We met this guy at like 3am when Ben and I were the only ones left standing. This guy made me laugh so hard I just had to take a picture! My friend the next day was like "who's the guy in the helmet?" and Ben goes "there was a guy in a helmet! why didn't you tell me???" note to Ben - you took the picture crazy man!

The next day Ben & I went to the Newtown festival and nursed our hangovers sitting on the grass in the sun & eating gozleme. BEST.......HANGOVER..............CURE...........EVER! Hahaha.

On our way to the festival... looking a tad puffy eyed!

There were awesome stalls and I was about two millimetres away from getting my face painted like spider man but the line was huge and gozleme was calling me....

The festival - before it got way packed (facing away from the stages)
Anyway, that's was the eventful weekend that welcomed in Suzie & Georgie's 23rd year. Oh and i swear i will eventually get a better camera! one day... hehehe
Love & kisses on both cheeks,
