Goodbye Jill.

Like most Victorians, I woke today to find out that missing Brunswick women, Jill Meagher, had been raped and killed by (the man the police have in custody) Adrian Ernest Bayley.

Jill and her husband Tom.

I can't tell you how upset I am. On Sunday I had seen her missing person poster on FaceBook. As the news unraveled, it seemed apparent to me that she wasn't a runaway and that she had truly been abducted. I remained hopeful that she was to be found alive. Unfortunatly that was not to be…

One of my friends posted on his FaceBook today about that lack of public transport and taxis in the early hours of the morning. He had been to the same bar exactly one week before Jill was snatched. At closing, there was only 50% of taxis needed, so he started walking in the direction of him home (the same route that Jill took), eventually a taxi picked him up. Being that Melbourne has such a busy night life I do think that out public transport system should be improved.
There have been many times when I have wanted to go back to my car on my own after being in the city, my husband doesn't let me. When we were dating and his bands used to play in clubs, he would always walk me to my car if I was going home alone. A lot of the time I used to drive a friend in so I would be safe. This friend also happened to be a black belt and a male :)

I did a quick search of Adrian Bayley's name earlier - it looks like he has prior convictions so hopefully that means he will stay in jail longer. I have no idea how someone could rape and murder someone, it is so hard for me to understand.

RIP Jill.

Let us not forget how many other people go missing in Australia every day, most of these are never shown on the news. And to all the ladies out there, please take care xo

Mermaids and the Emmy Awards

Those who know me know that I have an obsession with all things mermaid.

Mermainia is catching. Look at these beautiful gowns from the Emmy Awards.

Meanwhile, Forever New has a gorgeous mermaid skirt for sale. I love it!

Forever New $99.95

I would match that skirt with this beautiful shell cuff.

Shell Cuff $16.99 from Forever New

One of my favourite celebrity mermaid gowns was worn by Evan Rachel Wood at the 69th Golden Globe Awards. What do you think?

New Just In: Duchess Kate has breasts!!

Provence, one of the most beautiful places in France. Before Prince William and Kate headed off on their royal tour they took a small break at the Chateau d'Autet, a beautiful estate owned by the Queen's nephew.

While they were there, it seems that Kate decided to get a bit of a tan and while on the balcony decided to sunbathe topless - and why not, she is on a massive private (350 acre) estate, and she is on a private balcony…no one is around - just her husband….
Well, it seems a photographer (who was 1km away, behind a line of trees) used a long lens and snapped photos of Kate without her top on. The photos were then printed in the media.

Now, I believe this was a total invasion of privacy. I am all for paparazzi pictures, but taking photos of a young lady on private property is disgusting. If that balcony was behind glass would that be the same as being "indoors" and then be a more "peeping tom" situation?

I do think that Kate deserves some privacy, this woman didn't choose to fall in love with a prince and then lose all her privacy - I believe you just fall in love and you can't help it…
It's sad, these photos were taken just days around the anniversary of Princess Diana's death…Diana, of course, being chased by French paparazzi at the time. William must be so mad.

I think the Queen must be so proud of how she is handing the situation though. She is all smiles on her royal tour.

I am angry with people... the magazine is currently seeing in France for just over 1 British pound...however, sick people are selling them on eBay for heaps more money. I investigated and snapped this just as it ended - 21 pounds!!! What is wrong with people!

Currently, William and Kate are in the Solomon Islands. They were created by topless women - Kate seems to be having a bit of a giggle, good to see she has a sense of humour.

On a final note.

You're on holiday with your husband, in the middle of nowhere, just feeling free and able to totally absolutely switch off. Is this asking for much? Taking these pics was beyond an invasion of privacy and to the women behind this magazine are an absolute disgrace to womanhood.
