STYLE NOTE

Style Magazine - - Contents -

Wel­come to this fan­tas­tic edi­tion of Style Mag­a­zine! As the weather has warmed up, the Style team has been busy both in our air-con­di­tioned of­fice and out in the heat to make sure this is­sue is a great jour­ney for you, our read­ers. Not only have we been scour­ing out all the best events and Mel­bourne Cup hap­pen­ings, but we also have a very spe­cial story to share. When Lyn­dal Johns had a blood trans­fu­sion that was sup­posed to save her life, she never thought it would mean liv­ing with HIV for the rest of her life just from a doc­tor’s tragic mis­take. Now the old­est sur­viv­ing HIV vic­tim in Aus­tralia, our beau­ti­ful lady shares her story and re­lent­less op­ti­mism on pages 8 and 9. This month we also catch up with some in­spir­ing lo­cal mums who rode over 400km. Af­ter hear­ing how dif­fi­cult it was for peo­ple in ru­ral and re­mote com­mu­ni­ties to ac­cess heart health fa­cil­i­ties and test­ing, these close friends pulled to­gether a group of about 30 and cy­cled from Bris­bane to Me­an­darra to raise funds. Read all about their jour­ney and friend­ship on pages 10 and 11. With the ar­rival of Oc­to­ber comes the spring horse rac­ing car­ni­val, as well as many other events as we start head­ing into sum­mer. We’ve ded­i­cated this is­sue to ev­ery­thing you’ll need for the event sea­son — from keep­ing safe in the sun (p32) to fash­ion trends (p28), to a new look at the typ­i­cal fas­ci­na­tor (p21). So grab a cuppa or cold drink, put your feet up, and en­joy the Oc­to­ber edi­tion of Style Mag­a­zine Til next month,
