Ladies Day {Oaks Day}

Its Brisbane Racing Carnival and ANY chance my girlfriend Chelsea and I get to go to the races, we take full advantage of...

What girl wouldn't?? You get to drink lots of champagne, dress up and wear a fascinator....oh and you may even see some horses race! lol

This time Chelsea knew of a group of 40 or so lovely ladies that had planned a day at Doomben for Oaks Day and we were able to join them.

We had an absolute ball, we all caught a bus in together but Chelsea and I spent majority of the day pottering around here, there and everywhere. We ended up getting free champagne, free tappas, free shoe inserts (for sore feet), we had a meet and greet with the stunning X-factor star Samantha Jade and even entered Fashions of the Field for some fun, in which by some fluke I made the finals.

Another thing we did without even meaning to do was enter a competition to have our face on a Billboard to promote the upcoming Stradboke Cup Day, and funnily enough we actually won. There were a handful of people chosen and we were two of them..hilarious!!! :-)

We placed a decent number of bets on the horses and won a total of $12!!! lol 

Here are some pics of the girlie fun we had track side....

Us in our element at the Sirromet Marquee.

Chelsea and I always take advantage of any makeup touch-up marquees...

Some of the ladies from our group xx

What a roller coaster it was to do this, nerve wracking fun.. :-)

Giddyup horsey! Champagne has well and truly kicked by this stage! haha

Love this girl!

Some of the gorgeous girls we shared the day with at the end of the day...
Our 15 seconds of fame...kind of!

To the right is the emails we received showing what the Billboards were to be, and above is two of the many that we around the city during that week. ;-)
