It's that time of year again, when we congratulate our favorite college and post-degree graduates and cheerfully send them off into the working world!...
Wearing a fabulous dress, having a stunning hair-do and make-up to show off our womanly attributes is part of our creative feminine energy. I wouldn't have it any other way!
Overall, it is clear that we love the royal family, but why? Is it because we admire the work they do for charities? Is it that we idolise the family and try to be like them, particularly the younger members of the family? Or is it just propaganda that the media make us feed upon every day?
Women aren't one-dimensional. No woman is either a madonna or a whore. But our habit of putting famous people into easily identifiable boxes means celebrity women often come off this way. The way famous women represent themselves and their brand... does tend to make them figureheads for a certain 'kind of woman'.
You may not have the 24/7 schedules or the non-stop press scrutiny that the royals do, but every couple gets to the point when the stress and tension of everyday life turn those funny quips turn into sharp barbs that hook under the skin. Don't worry, it happens to everyone -- yes, even to Kate Middleton and Prince William.
In my practice many of my female patients are professionals and want to look good. Expensive shoes do not guarantee comfort because often times it is how the shoes are designed that can trigger potential foot problems.
It's clear that Prince William, Duchess Kate and Prince George have had an unforgettable time in New Zealand and Australia but most of what they're doing, you can do too... at a fraction of the price.
I've been a bit flighty the last few years, but I'm naturally quite earthy. I guess I just have to balance the fact I'm really a traveller, who got a bit sidetracked for too long, with somewhere to oil paint, cook, dig and bathe. I dread to think how much of my life I've spent in a depressed stupor.
Kate is no ordinary young woman, she is the Duchess of Cambridge, a future Queen; let's bring on the glamorous 'show-stoppers' and maybe an updo for a change, although full marks for the pony-tail by the way!
Even a non baby lover such as myself thinks George is a little cutie. But come on, media. I know prime minister John Keys is getting his moneys-worth in coverage thanks to New Zealand footing the bill for their stay, but things are getting ridiculous.
What will Charles be like as King? We don't know for sure but many fear it. And we get a dark forewarning in King Charles III, a provocative and controversial future-history play at the Almeida Theatre.
I fell down the deep, dark internet rabbit hole of gazing at seemingly endless photographs of Kate Middleton's outfits. And who could blame me, really? The woman's mix of high end fashion and chain store bargains is something to be marvelled at... But here's where the real problem lies: I'm an Australian republican.
With the milestones, why not celebrate with the village that surrounds George? "Post and boast" on social media platforms is out for the Royals, so printed and framed photographs of the nation's favourite grandchild for extended family can keep everyone involved in marking these occasions.
As Kate and Wills' supernanny starts her first week on the job, I'm posting these tips for her in the likely knowledge that she already has things pretty much Shipshape and Bristol fashion round at Kensington Palace. After all, that's what the best nannies are for -- they organise not only the children, but the family into the bargain.
It must take some time to get up to speed, from a standing start, with a hatred that has been cultivated over generations. A foreigner, for example, could not turn up in Gaza and expect to experience immediately the ingrained enmity - passed down from parents to children, marinated in an entire culture - a Palestinian feels for an Israeli, no matter how many books he'd read.
