We are all about the Ladylove at Champagne Cartel. Love your ladies, and life will be just fine, we say! Gillian and I have been firm friends for 10 years now. What I love about Gillian is her razor-sharp intelligence and creativity, her ability to make me laugh until I snort and cry, and her active compassion for those around her who are going through tough times.
She’s an ace broad.

Lady love is lacking in my life, my friends are not close enough for catch ups. Thats why the blog community is so important
She sent me 11 roses and 1 plastic rose in a bundle with a note saying I love you till the last rose dies.
Someone who lifts me up, shares both my joys and my sorrows, keeps it real and makes me laugh.
Sharing! 20 years, pregnancies, stillbirth, adventures, Oxfam, loads of bubbles and many many laughs. Even camping last month had us sharing a long drop loo…………
I love that she’s a judgement-free zone, and gives the best advice and hugs. And she’s allergic to chocolate. MORE FOR ME!
She is my go-to confidant, my party girl, my fashion icon, she keeps it real and we make each other laugh.
My mate Mish. She and I enjoy many grand ideas, laughing fits and champagne-induced moments of brilliance. Would hate to be without my mates!
Ladylove looks past the complexity of lifes consuming bubbles. Guides me to reconnect with my life path. Fills my soul with her presence. She’s Beautiful!
Through our great (marriages, kids) and truly awful times (cancer, MS, death of parents) Ladylove has been the constant that has never let us down.
My lady love knows me inside out, she gets my weird antisocial tendencies, she takes my outfit pics with great care, and for that I love her (she is a crazy cat lady)
My ladylove is an outrageous looking party animal who knows all the best bars and our hubbies are best mates. Friendship perfection right there!
My ladylove tells it to me straight but always, always, always has my back.
My ladyloves are supportive, a shoulder to cry on and wine. We are Defence wives challenged by loneliness, separation and stress from deployments.
I don’t see her often because we live miles apart; one phone call has me smiling and sparks joy in my heart…that’s my ladylove!
I’m so lucky to have four ladyloves (the Cows) who have my back, front and everything between. Cue laughing, crying, champagne and attempts at craft….
My ladylove often wonders how we are friends given the contrasts but she is such a special person and she makes me laugh so hard!!
(hint: sung to the tune of My Humps by Black Eyed Peas)
She treats me really nicely,
Buys all these nices.
She’s always standing next to me,
Always dancing next to me.
My Loves, My Lovely Ladyloves
My girls are so super caring
Advice, support, it’s all about sharing
Yes I love my ladies lots
Now let’s dance and have some shots!
Although my bestest lady love is half a world away,
I know she thinks of me, as I do of her every single day.
