Girl Crush - Clare Bowditch.

 I have a girlie-crush on Clare Bowditch.  If I was a guy I would find her totally hot I am sure!! :)
she can act really well, sing super-super-well, is beautiful, intelligent, politically-minded, stylish, really funny and I bet she's even good at baking cakes! I also LOVE the fact that she is a busy mum of three, who is honest about not always doing a perfect job - in fact she describes the juggling of a busy creative career and family life as "delicious chaos!"{I like it!}!
She is real. GO CLARE!!

AND great news! ...Clare has begun developing "a quietly brilliant mentoring program for big-hearted creative-entrepreneurial-types who want to make their living doing the things they love (and make the world a better place at the same time!)". For more information, email

I discovered Clare's wonderful music through her playing the character Rosanna in my favourite TV show, Offspring, which stars Asher Keddie, another girlie-crush of mine).

I soooo love this track "You Make Me Happy" from the show.

 Clare's latest album "Modern Day Addiction" is out now. Maybe you'd like to buy it from here, or just drop by Clare's website to hear more songs and/or learn more about the lovely lady! As I mentioned earlier - I think Clare has a great sense of style, and I love the style of her 'Offspring' character Rosanna also. I think (Clare if you ever read this and I am horribly wrong please correct me), that the two ladies' styles are similar. {Except maybe Clare wears more black than Rosanna perhaps...?!} Clare says of her fashion style:
 "Many of my dresses are from a small but brilliant dress-making company called Lazybones, who I discovered in 2009. Some of them are from Boom Shankar. Many of them are old and from old-ish shops. There might even be a few from a fashion shop called K-mart. When I am dressing up, I like Easton Pearson, Mariana Hardwick, Leona Edminston and Akira."
Here is a little 'steal her style' kinda segment (but stealing is not nice, so just take a little inspiration and make it your own!).
