April to July Roundup – All Things How To Girl

So it’s been a while since I’ve done these monthly roundups… whoops. Truth be told, there were a few things I wanted to cover in this post which hadn’t been made public yet so I’ve been biding my time (insert evil cackle here). Now that said things have been announced (see the ever-so-creatively titled section called “Announcement” below), I’m ready to post the roundup. Not only that, but unfortunately my health took a bit of a dive so I wasn’t really in a great position to be blogging. Nevertheless, read on for what April to July brought to the table… apart from a lot of chocolate.

Like… a LOT of chocolate.

March Roundup – All Things How-To-Girl

It’s becoming increasingly apparent that my time to blog is usually crammed in between the twenty different lives I lead and try to pass off as one cohesive loop. I feel that this is a trait that many of us wannabe adults (i.e. people who, by definition of their age, should know how to keep their lives together but are actually faking their way through it all and hoping no one notices they have no idea what they’re doing) share – the constant juggling of work, friends, family, hobbies, interests and shiny things that caught our attention at one point or another. I feel like I consequently haven’t had time to connect with you guys the way I want to. A lot of the time, I want to fill you in on smaller things without spending 2,000 words going into the intricacies of a product or event’s good sides and bad. With that in mind, I decided now would be a great time to introduce this new feature.

Welcome to the monthly roundup, where I’ll be filling you in on whatever happenings of the month I think might make your day a little brighter! Topics will be sorted into subtitles, so feel free to scroll and choose what interests you!

LUSH Adelaide – New Store for all your Lushie needs

It’s not exactly a secret that I’m a giant LUSH fangirl. Last time I was at a LUSH event was when LUSH Marion hosted us for the Bloggers United AU birthday celebration. On that particular occasion, myself and Felicia from Beauty and the Geek AU showed our competitive spirits and ended up winning a huge haul of LUSH products that I’m still working my way through.

So when I received an invitation to the opening of the new store in Rundle Mall courtesy of Promote SA, I was more than a bit excited.

LUSH’s Adelaide store has long been a place wherein I spend far too much money, but the tiny store always made for a challenging trip. More often than not you’d have to (as politely as possible) elbow your way through crowds just to get to the products you needed to grab. And forget about actually testing out and browsing products.

How to pretend you know what you’re doing in a group of awesome people who know what they’re doing…

 

Bloggers United AU Adelaide Event

If you’ve ever sat through a job interview smiling broadly while internally screaming “please don’t notice that I have no idea what I’m doing”, then you’ll likely understand how I felt rocking up to the Bloggers United AU event in Adelaide recently. Blogging is brand new to me, and at the time of attending the event I was operating solely out of instagram with the intent to learn from the best and set up a “real” blog later this year. Little did I know that by meeting all the inspirational and lovely bloggers and brands around in Adelaide, I’d end up deciding to start a heck of a lot earlier than I’d intended.

If you’re a blogger in Australia and not already part of the Bloggers United AU community, I highly recommend you get on board. It’s a really supportive place, run by Jasmine and Nikita, who are both wonderful humans (actually, on that note, Nikita is currently raising money for the Whitelion charity and you should definitely go donate).

How to Rock the Adelaide Fringe

If you spend any time in Adelaide, then you know that Fringe time kind of turns it into something of a big top circus. It’s hard not to get lost in the sea of shows and treats suddenly assaulting your senses. Don’t get me wrong; it’s a pleasant assault, which usually ends in about five extra kilos on your waistline and potentially a few nights where you can’t quite remember where you left your right shoe, but ultimately it’s worth the insanity.

Nevertheless, sometimes it’s hard to know where to start. So here’s my how-to-girl guide to making the most of a night on the Fringe in Adelaide.
