Melbourne Cup

The Race That Stops The Nation! I’m not sure about the nation, but my day was certainly occupied with champagne, fascinators and people watching. Being the first Tuesday in November it was Melbourne Cup! For my extra special follower overseas (Francesca for now, hopefully more soon!), this is the most widely celebrated horse race in Australia.

The day was filled with hats, heat and hedging bets. The best parts were that a) I didn’t see anyone else wearing my dress and b) I won some money after placing some small bets! All of this was thanks to James and his extensive betting research (and my penchant for symbolic horse names. Obviously!) All up we won about $130 on two horses. “Max Almighty” (Max is James’ dog) and “Park Lane”, which is apparently a good horse that is also my favourite area in Monopoly 😉 Here is what we got up to!

P.S Thank you to my “personal stylist” for dressing me and to Brittany for the tickets! There will be more updates soon, I had another nice weekend..maybe a bit too many nice meals (and drinks), so once I have caught up on study (exams for the next two weeks) I will continue to create! x
