The Inaugural Grom Cup Soccer match is Coinciding with the 1stever Skullcandy Oz Grom Open!
Come on down to support Skullcandy on the soccer field!
The past week I have been seen sporting the latest wheels that are on everybody’s lips – the Peugeot 308CC.
A big step up from my first car that I still own, which took me my hard working high school days working in a juice bar and popcorn shop to save to afford. A Toyota Corolla decked out with pink number plates, pink hello kitty car seat covers and a barbie bobble head – no image is needed for this in comparison.
Now growing up, only my barbies drove convertibles…..this week I got to experience how they felt when being pushed around the lounge room.
With Sweaty Betty decal, airwave neck heating system, leather interior and have to mention ELECTRONIC WINDOWS – you couldn’t ask for more of a dream car. The 308CC commands the road with superb confidence to deliver a ride of breathtaking excitement. Combined with the powerful turbo engine, this is your (and was my) opportunity to discover, top up or down, what the thrill of the road is really about.
It turned into a Where’s Wally game…but more along the lines of “Where’s The Peugeot Today” photo opportunity. Whether it be for a workout, a spot of shopping, or a nice Sunday drive….the Peugeot definitely got around town!
Check out the paparazzi snaps below:
Thank you to Peugeot for one the of the best weeks of my life!

Irish fashion brand A|wear took over a gorgeous apartment in the chic Soho Hotel, London today to showcase forthcoming collections – and Sweaty Betty PR was lucky enough to score an invite and scout out the top styles for Australian fashionistas!
The label comes straight from the heart of Dublin, Ireland’s buzzing capital city, and features gorgeous fashion-forward clothing and accessories available online and shipping straight to Australia. We’ve already been obsessed with A|wear’s striped skater dress and the fun colour-block dresses, and we couldn’t wait to see what the label had in store for the coming months.
This is a collection that’s going to be seen on the streets of Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne and BEYOND this season – A|wear has touched on every major trend with it’s own cheeky twist – Fabulous Forties-style tea dresses, grecian gowns and slinky skirts will cater to your inner bombshell, while the Jazz Age range references Australia’s own Great Gatsby theme to a tee – think tops adorned with art deco hardware, flapper sequinned skirts, and shimmering sheer tops. And for the real girly girls, A|wear has a collection of pastel blazers, peplums in pinks, adorable little shorts, and my favourite, a pleated pink skirt with tutu for the ultimate feminine silhouette.
A|wear invited London’s top fashion media through the doors of the Soho Hotel to view the collection across two days; a tres fashionable crowd were browsing the racks when I arrived and the label laid on a yummy spread of pastries and drinks to fuel our ‘window shopping’. There was also the chance to indulge in a manicure courtesy of OPI, and we all left with a goody bag containing postcards of the campaign shoot.
The new A|wear collections will be going live on the site (awear.com) in the coming months. In the words of the Irish, ‘thanks a million’ for the invite A|wear! More photos of the day on our Facebook page.
If you’re not in London at the moment people. you are missing out on the most amazing few months the city has ever seen! With the Olympics just around the corner, the country’s biggest station Radio 1 hosted a weekend-long free party on Hackney marshes in the shadow of the sporting stadium, with tickets available to nearby residents and a line-up which far outshone any major festival this summer.
A whole host of stars performed over two days this weekend, including Jay-Z (who brought Rihanna, Kanye and M.I.A out on stage with him), Lana Del Ray, Tinie Tempah, Florence and the Machine, Jessie J, David Guetta, Swedish House Mafia, and many more. Rih Rih closed the weekend with an awesome set on Sunday evening, bringing back her mentor Jay-Z and belting out ‘We Found Love’ to the crowd of thousands as the sun set on London town.
And the stars pulled out their most fabulous ensembles for the evening – check out our favourite looks:
Santigold making good use of the wind machine with her fringing and tailstream!
The UK’s answer to Rihanna, Rita Ora, working the pyjama look.
Rihanna herself looking anything but stage-shy in a studded leather jacket, animal print tee and what can only be described as pants with cycling-short style mesh over the top. Love her take on a festival ensemble!
And our favourite, New York rapper Azealia Banks trussed up in black mesh with ‘eyelash’ sunglasses from one of our favourite London accessory labels Tatty Devine.
This is just the start of summer in London – we’ll keep you posted with all the style news from the city this season!
Rihanna was spotted yesterday leaving the Corinthia Hotel in London sporting the Oliver Peoples matte black Mande – We love, love, love!!

Colin Christian infuses his latest exhibition with inspiration from old sci-fi movies, supermodels and anime. Colin uses the cartoons exaggerations and perfections to create a realistic form of 3D art. His latest collaboration with Ron English combines two art forms together which takes “Pop Art” to a new level. His new collection juxtaposes a cartoons true form for example his “Domestic Goddess” which portrays the everyday housewife, with half of her face eroding to the bone – Incorporating cultures, anime and the everyday woman, Christian’s current exhibition is a breath of fresh air to today’s pop culture and artist’s alike.
A genuine play on words and society, Ron English takes Pop Art to a brand new experience, as he states his latest collection can be seen as “Popaganda”.Starting with a location or famous figure, English makes his mark by incorporating an abstract, yet modern approach to an already well known image or personality. An example of this would be “King Gene- the Art Kisstory Series”. We see a historical figure to start, however our eyes glance back for a second look as his face is painted just like a band member from KISS.
The collaboration between Christian and English invites the viewer to an experience of colour, Pop Art, anime, the pin up girl, culture and history. All of these factors combined into one art space creates a platform where the imagination can run wild.
