Believe it or not, the 2019 Spring Racing Carnival is just around the corner! We’re talking extravagant hats, suave suits and long days trackside. But if you’ve still got a little more to do to get ready for the epic weeks ahead – don’t worry we’ve got you covered. Here are our top tips for all your race day essentials at Pran Central:



Put your best foot forward in some fabulous footwear from Wittner. With it’s new Spring/Summer Collection now in store you’ll find everything from pretty in pastel heels to classic stilettos – perfect for strutting your stuff at Flemington.





The weather is getting warmer so it’s time to get those pins out! And what better way to show them off than getting silky smooth with Laser Clinics Australia. While you’re there, ask them about Yellow LED Light Therapy. It’s a super fast treatment (only about 13 minutes), and will leave you looking as radiant as the Cup itself.


Did you know? ✨ Yellow LED Light Therapy is the deepest penetrating medical grade treatment that we offer in clinic. LED targets the light receptors on our cells which then converts the light into energy. The cells are then fuelled with all the energy that they need to be able to function at optimal ability. The LED Light also triggers the lymphatic system, improving the removal of toxins from the treated area. Yellow Light Therapy is used to increase wound healing, collagen induction, skin hydration and the overall health of the skin. Yellow Light Therapy is perfect to use after Cosmetic Injections, Microdermabrasion, Fraction RF or Skin Needling treatments to help speed up skin recovery and maximise the benefits from your treatments. Each treatment lasts 13 minutes.

Don’t worry men, we haven’t forgotten about you! The team at ESQ Clinic are the experts in chemical skin peels to have you looking your best. So if your skin’s feeling a little dull and lifeless, it’s time to get peeling! You’ll feel like a stallion in no time.





Is there anything better than a fresh mani pedi? We don’t think so - there’s nothing that says race day luxury more. Sit back and let the technicians at Organique work their magic. It’s also the perfect time to take your lashes to the next level with a full set of eyelash extensions.  Plus if you spend $100 from now until October 31, you’ll receive a $10 Coles gift card!





Perhaps some of the most important race day essentials can be found at UPharmacy, and we’re not just talking skincare, makeup and fragrances. Firstly, it’s a good idea to stock up on some paracetamol in case a headache strikes (or for the next day), as well as some antihistamines. After all, it is spring and hay fever season is well and truly upon us. And another tip, make sure you invest in some Party Feet for some extra padding in your shoes so you can party the day (and night) away - your feet will thank us later!
