What I Wore : V8 Supercars Gala Ball, 2014

The night is all about celebrating a year of intensities, emotions and the coming together of a community of people whom understand each other like none other. We have all had highs and we have all endured the lows, and yet here we all are – as competitors and as friends – celebrating the year that was. We have travelled all over, spent many hours in airports and on flights (I am up to 63 flights for the year!) and have worked all year for this moment – to dress to impress, to drink wine with our friends and to dance and take selfies with Jessica Mauboy. It all happened.

And some might even be interested in What I Wore.

THE DRESS

This. Dress. Wow!
I am so madly in love with the dress I wore for Gala. This piece of art was made by Bernadette Pimento Couture and is called the ‘Ellisse Gown.’ After months of looking and wondering what I could possibly wear, I found Bernadette on High Street in Armidale and she was more than helpful and is much too kind!
The gown is hand crafted and made to perfection. Bernadette actually has this gown as her main display in her showroom and has been causing quite the stir!

You can contact Bernadette on her website or on Facebook, and follow her on instagram.

THE HEADPIECE

Amy Oram – better known as Teeki Designs – was the absolute star of the night! This headpiece was a talking point in its own right. Rose gold to match the dress, all hand made and taking over six hours to create. We can all see how talented Amy is!

Amy is also famous for being the creator of my headpieces in my blog post “Nick Dale : The Beauty Expert’ 

Giving Amy free reign to design and create something she thought would match the dress was one of my favourite parts of the journey. I can absolutely trust her with any design and any brief. She also designs for brides, fashion and for racing carnivals. I highly recommend you get in touch!

You can find Amy on her website, Facebook or Instagram.

 THE HAIR

My Hair was of course done by the one and only Lizzie Liros.
Lizzie is the only one I trust with my hair! She is the ultimate queen! I also give Lizzie free reign to do as she pleases, as she always knows best. And the best part? The waves actually stayed. I have no idea how she does it, but I can’t do anything like what she can. Lizzie just gave me a soft curl for the evening.

You can find Lizzie at her website, Facebook and Instagram.

THE MAKE UP

Melissa Sassine is one of the most talented women in the universe. Not only is she immensely beautiful on the inside, she is also on the outside. Such an amazing woman!

The brief was simple – Do what ever you think is right! And that she did.

Keeping the tones neutral, a little splash of glimmer here and some pink lips there, add some lashes (two layers, actually!) and hey presto! Here we are. Also, just to top off her make up skills, these pics were taken EIGHT hours after the job was completed… and you’d never know!

Find Melissa on her website, Facebook and Instagram

THE JEWELLERY

Maria Elena has the most incredible collection of jewellery I have ever seen! Maria says her store was born from part passion and part obsession with jewellery.

‘I love seeing the reaction of the emotions that my jewellery brings to people. Making women happy makes me happy.’

Sounds good to me! Plus, she lives in Newcastle, and I am always happy to help my fellow Novocastrian’s!

To get in touch with Maria, you can use her website, Facebook and Instagram.

  • @BioOilAustralia has been there for me from the start - when I was a teenager and I acquired my first lot of stretch marks. And here we are again in full swing with these twinnies to help improve the appearance of those extra marks and make me feel like ‘me’ again. I just apply twice a day, morning and night, and it only takes two minutes, so I get more time with my little mate Carter. Those chubby cheeks get me every time! #BioOilTwiceDaily #Collab #BioOilPartnership
  • My beautiful girl, Kennie Rae 💕 
#CoulthardAndCo
  • It’s fair to say it’s been a mighty big weekend here in the #CoulthardAndCo household... @biozetattack gave me such an incredible (and terrifying!) opportunity to come along on their #BiozetAttackBrigade campaign at @toughmudderaustralia .. oh my goodness!! SO many thoughts about this and surprisingly I didn’t suck (or die!) at it! As you can see, I’m fairly excited about my new laundry additions and I had a blast shooting this campaign in own laundry, which is where I spend most of my life these days.. haha!! Oh the irony. Anyway, I was impressed with the results from my laundry loads (not so much my Tough Mudder injuries - swipe right!) but my crew on the day made it SO much fun! So many more pictures to come this week... there was no escaping that mud! 
PS. Anyone know a great massage place on the coast?? I’m in desperate need over here.. So sore. 😂😜 PPS. Congratulations @fabiancoulthard !! SO proud of you. Winner winner 🍾🏆👌🏼 #FabPack

  • My FIRST Mother’s Day 💝
How special is today? So magical 💫 
The meaning of this day has changed for me so much this year. Being a mother is so special and such a privilege. ‘WHAT DOES MOTHERHOOD MEAN TO YOU?’ It’s a question I asked in my stories yesterday and I had literally hundreds of replies from so many of you. Thank you for sharing with me your beautiful answers. How lucky am I to share this time with my family, as well as with all of you? If you didn’t already answer, what does it mean to you? I’ve written a BLOG post about it too, and included a little story and some beautiful images of my tribe too. So chuffed to have a day like today to celebrate with you this incredible life purpose and journey. Let’s hear it for our mums! 💝 #CoulthardAndCo
  • So from what feels like a lifetime ago, I used to model. Day in, day out, I would work out, go for a run, eat when ever I wanted (and what ever.. ahh metabolism!), have my make up and hair done, outfits given to me and I would pose from dawn until dusk and have beautiful and effortless photos flooding my inbox on the daily. So yes, a lifetime ago, this would have been a quick two-second snap at the end of my day.. not any more folks! This was done at about 10 at night, I had something on that day and left over make up. All the daily chores were done, kids in bed, dog fed and I thought, ‘I should probably get a photo for once.’ So, here you go, instagram. Here’s my ‘end of day’ EFFORTLESS photo for you. Haha, I am funny... I don’t think I did too bad, do you? 😂 *also, if you watch my stories you’d have noticed I had my brows microbladed last week. Thank you @mimsybeauty I’m in LOVE!! Get to see her girls, you won’t be disappointed 😘🖤 #BeckyLamb #CoulthardAndCo
  • Kennie knows how to make me smile! Now that I’m a Mum, I find my time being consumed more and more by this little cheeky grin and dressing her in the cutest outfits I can find.. but I still need ‘me time’ and I am always after those products that will get this bod looking and feeling its best. @BioOilAustralia gives me the control back and helps improve the appearance of my stretch marks in just two minutes a day. It lets me feel like me again with smooth and soft skin.  #BioOilTwiceDaily #Collab #BioOilPartnership
  • THIS IS NOT A DRILL. It’s actually just a little reindeer named Carter... I’ve given him a cuteness rating of 9.7/10 😂 This little guy is my happy baby, always giggling, looking around and keeping me on my toes. He’s a typical boy - easily distracted, needs constant stimulation and knows how to make his Mama’s heart melt..! Like this.. haha! He was born a little 4’10 and he was such a little fighter from the moment he arrived. Always being smaller than his sister, I think he has a point to prove. We love you little guy, - the biggest, sweetest, curious little character I’ve had the pleasure of meeting 💙 @cartercoulthard #coulthardandco
  • Mackenzie Rae Coulthard. Kennie. Kennie Ken Ken. Little Kennie Wennie. Grumpy Ken. (The last one is my favourite!). I wonder if she knows how loved she really is. Do any of us? Probably not. This little princess was sleeping through well before her brother, and she has only ever woken us up once (Her brother would wake us and we would just feed her at the same time). If you’ve ever wondered what the textbook baby looked like, here she is. Always patient, so observant and only cries when there is a genuine problem. I think she has experienced life before now, she’s been here before. If this was your first and only baby, you’d definitely be going back for more 😂 
I also love dressing her in girly outfits.. this bow is so cute too. Courtesy of @blondesinbows 💕
I’ve been thinking of writing letters to my children.. have you done this? What are your tips to doing so? Are there any sets I can buy to make it easier? 
Also thinking of posting photos of these two on their own accounts.. what do you think? #CoulthardAndCo
