So many beautiful words written today about a woman who was beautiful inside and out. When I was young I didn't just love her I wanted to BE her - singing, acting, roller-skating - who wouldn't? Then so much respect for her as she matured, and as she dealt with cancer and gave back so much to others suffering. She will be greatly missed.

@rush Agreed. Also, they just took all the personality out of these guys! All now have boring haircuts, boring "neutral" clothes...I dunno.

Oh, boo hoo.

@yeahyepyes "The idea that women were oppressed throughout history is an appalling theory." "Abortion is clearly wrong..."

These are considered healthy? They're all full of sugar (fruit, maple, honey, brown sugar...) and processed white flour! Would love to see the macros. The only one that comes close to healthy is the peanut butter granola. And maybe the spinach feta muffins.

Everyone is different but these rules are a good start. Personally, I can't do without under eye concealer. I have great skin for 53, eat well and drink plenty of water but still have dark circles which are not so much ageing as make me look tired. I use Trinny London's BFF Eye which is light and has a beautiful reflective element that makes me look awake (and a few years younger!).

@gu3st They've posted a picture of Debbie Turner by mistake!

This is a fashion gala. Most famous people are attending on behalf of a designer. Yet none of the captions on these photos mention the designers' names. It's a REALLY important part of the occasion, do you think we could have some "dress by..." additions?

@chrissyinthemiddle He has said he didn't know about her alopecia. If that's true, then you are correct that it was just a buzz cut reference. Who knows?

One Insta account called the Birkenstock/Manolo collab "If Carrie and Aiden had a baby!" Ha!

Damn. Now I have to buy those sunnies...

@higgledypiggledy I couldn't agree with you more!

Couldn't agree more! I don't own a speck of beige and I like it that way. Just because I'm 52 doesn't mean I'm going to fade into the background. The fashion on the mid-50s women AJLT was wonderful!

Why do we have to give children awards anyway? What does it actually achieve?

Please tell me you did not do a post about thong heels! Eeeewwwww!

Love this, Holly! My twin daughters did their HSC last year (set the precedent!) and I joked (sort of) that I needed the holiday at the end, not them! Granted, they were older than primary school kids, but the pressure and the responsibility on them was huge under the circumstances. And we all felt it.

I had my IUD removed without anaesthetic and another inserted. Removal was a sharp pain that quickly subsided and I didn't feel like I should have had pain relief. My friend had the same procedure and said it was excruciating. Guess we are all different (and some gynos are better than others too!).

Thrifting, androgyny, comfort, self expression, bucking trends....gee, sounds just like when I was growing up in the 80s. I don't think there is anything new here.

Fabulous woman and an incredibly prolific songwriter/storyteller. A whopping 5000+ songs written over her career!

Meeting Simon Le Bon would've changed my life too 😉
