Rickshaws, races and regal relationships

Carla and Nic.jpgOoh, la la, Carla and Nicolas are rumoured to be with child…well, best of luck to them, but I was just a little bemused at their friend Jacques Seguela’s comment that the pair were a ‘young’ couple….eerrr, I know 40 is the new 30 and all that, but young ? ….Perhaps it’s a European thing…..

Hats off to Michelle Obama for her openess about the trials and tribulations of marriage. While fighting wars, restoring economies, and reforming health care are par for the course in the American Presidentia, it’s rare to hear such personally candid comments from a nation’s First Lady. However, as they are guaranteed good press coverage, it seems Michelle, and Barack, are making the most of their position to educate and encourage in a more personal way…Go Obamas!

Mary rickshaw1.jpgVery touching to see the story of the Danish royals nostalgic visit to Hanoi, and the unveiling of Henrik’s grandfather’s memorial plaque. They certainly look a relaxed and happy family….but hang on, while the royals take the relative luxury of a rickshaw, is that their bodyguard left to run alongside? Oh well, keeps him fit, I s’pose…

Meanwhile, at the “race that stops a nation” was the fab fascinator that stopped the nation. Well, that may be an exaggeration, but Zara’s headpiece did look magnificent as she celebrated at the annual Melbourne Cup day.


  1. Zaras red hat makes her look like she’s got plates on her head.

  2. I just love finding beautiful and artistic freebies like this. They really brighten up my day, thank you!
