What a week! This was my fourth year working on the Melbourne Cup Carnival coverage with Channel 7 and despite being absolutely exhausting, it’s one of the funnest weeks in my calendar and favourite jobs to work on! My feet hated me after 4 days in high heels from 6-6 (got some reflexology lined up) – I hadn’t worn heels for long periods of time during pregnancy so this was a warm welcome back. I love the excitement in the lead up, the atmosphere trackside, the fashion, the conversation, the team I work with and seeing the final product. I got the opportunity to interview some cool people for the coverage and cover all the fashions from the Myer Fashions on the Field competition.

I want to thank my amazing husband and sister Chloe for being in Melbourne with me and taking care of our little Violet while Mummy worked. My favourite part of the day was coming home to get in the shower with Violet to bath her! To Eat Fit Food for delivering incredibly healthy and delicious meals to our doorstep before the coverage each day. SO nice to have healthy options available when time is of the essence! Will be blogging about some of the yummy food I got delivered throughout the week and how the service works. Also to the amazing team I work with for the coverage – the producers, editors, stylists, makeup artists, cameramen, technicians, security team, drivers, PR crew and EVERYONE involved. Had so much fun with you all.
