Phoenix’s first ever basketball game, and we were court side. She was so sooo excited, my little cutie pie!! And look at the superstar who was performing!
So we started off on the boat and had sooo much fun, we were a full on posse!!! All the kids jumped off the top of the boat, well all apart from Angel who was happy to steer the boat and honk the horn really loud.
My dear friends Kim and Khloe came into town (Sydney), so I went along to support them at there launch at Hugos. Then we went and had dinner at Icebergs, so nice to catch up and do the girly thing. All in all, a much needed day off from the X Factor, especially since poor Christina left! Hope you all enjoy the pics!!!!
Doing my sodashi face pack for the show tonight, giving myself the proper glow, gotta be done ladies, there’s nothing like looking after the skin! SODASHI WEBSITE
Started off Derby weekend with a nice dinner at the ChopHouse and then went out and hung out in Club 23.
The hotel was great with stunning views.
Got my hair and make-up done and went to go and put my dress on and look what happened.
Luckily, there was a great seamstress at the hotel and she literally sewed me into my dress.
Hanging out with Ronan and Yvonne at the races was really fun. But I have to say, the people in Melbourne were trashed! The Emirates tent was cool, we had a lot of fun.
Hanging out with Emma Freedman was so much fun, she was actually on the phone before we took this picture, mid auction for a condo. I wonder if she got it???
Hungout with Miss J! Look at his fabulous bowtie! Love this guy!
Went back to the hotel for a 2 hour disco nap, I couldn’t sleep, but clearly Stephen could.
We had out big dinner with all of the fabulous people of Channel 7 at a cute french bistro.
Qantas cancelled all of their flights for the day. Me and Ronan had to get back to sydney for our dress rehearsals with our contestants, so the only way to fly back was the private jet. Now that’s what I’m talking about!!!!
Back to work.

Oh my gosh, Sydney really knows how to show a Leeds girl a good time! I had a blast cruising around the harbor on a fabulous boat, on such a beautiful day! Good food, good drinks, great company, warm sunshine, and relaxation, what else can a girl ask for?!?! I can’t wait to have another wonderful, relaxing day just like yesterday! Thanks Sydney!
Ronan, 34, looked like he needed a very high factor sun cream as he walked topless around a 92-foot yacht that had been hired from Aussie Home Loans chief John Symond to treat the Australian X Factor team to a day out.
Even fellow judge Mel B commented on his fair skin as she, husband Stephen Belafonte and her daughters Phoenix and Angel joined the yacht party for the cruise around Sydney.
She took to her Twitter page to snap a picture of the gang on the deck and wrote: ‘A day out boating with the family yipeee @ronanofficial is tooo pale for the pic!!’
But he seemed to be happy and relaxed as he wandered round the boat soaking up the early summer sun.
Mel, 36, was also having a good time and with her two-month baby daughter Madison safely on dry land with a nanny, Mum could sit back and enjoy a glass or two of wine.
The former Spice Girl even had a cheeky puff on a cigarette as she and Belafonte sparked up at the back of the boat.
After a spot of lunch in which more drinks were consumed, Ronan and Stephen decided to indulge in a spot of fishing off the back of the boat while Angel had a dip in the hot tub.
The gang were enjoying some time off from the show before it returns on Monday night and another finalist is kicked off.
