Up Late with Marie Claire and James St

27 Mar

Timed to coincide with the launch of Marie Claire’s 200th edition issue, the Marie Claire James Street ‘Up Late’ event will see a myriad of shoppers descend upon James Street to take advantage of an array of special offers from the likes of Mecca Cosmetica, Endota, St Barts, Calexico and more… Think discounts, gifts with purchase, and designer meet-and-greets. Basically, one big stylish fête!

Not only are there over 70 fantastic special offers for you to access on the night, but Editor and Publisher Jackie Frank and her team will be in stores and walking the street, dishing out style advice and meeting shoppers. There’ll also be a special marie claire lounge opposite Harveys where you can nab a great goody bag, (crammed with an amazing array of products) and maybe a slice of their 200th birthday cake?

And here’s something even sweeter than cake… not only are stores offering delightful discounts and gifts with purchase, they’re also transforming their spaces, and hosting store parties (think champagne, cupcakes and macaroons).

Oh and did I mention some of Australia’s best designers will be there too? Heidi Middleton of sass and bide, Easton Pearson’s Pamela Easton and Lydia Pearson, Camilla Franks of Camilla, the boys from KSUBI and Bec Manning of Rebecca Manning, are just a few of the designers that will be in their stores on the evening.

And if that’s not enough… cru bar + cellar will be transformed into the Louis Roederer champagne bar, where you can take five, and experiences the “Artistry of Champagne”. Plus if you’re feeling a little peckish while you shop, there will be tantalizing street food options, like Mexican at Press, dumplings, steamed buns filled with pork belly, mushrooms and Middle Eastern pita pockets, dotted throughout the street. YUMMMMYYY!

I’ll be there, scoping out the new Mecca Cosmetica store and buying up big, saying HELLO! to 25% off all SOOT. garments, checking out the beautiful designer goods at Frockshop (they will have 20% off on the night), trying on gorgeous dresses at Jules & Roc (20% off store wide, including labels such as Shakuhachi, Manning Cartell and Shona Joy ), checking out the trendy shoes on offer at Zomp (enjoy 15% off store wide), having a squiz inside the new Ksubi store, and grabbing some dumplings and steamed pork buns from the street stalls.

There will be a few great beauty deals on for the one night only. At Endota Spa, book in for an hour treatment with dermalogica products, and take home one of their exfoliation duo packs. It’s filled with products that will give you the most polished skin possible.

Mecca Cosmetica are offering complimentary Smokey Eye Lessons to help you to master this timeless trend. Mecca’s Makeup Artist will teach you the secrets to creating the perfect smokey eye in just a few simple steps. Bookings are essential and subject to availability. Please contact the store on 07 3852 6960 to reserve your appointment.

So come and stay up late at the Marie Claire James Street ‘Up Late’ street party this Thursday March 29, from 5pm on James Street, Fortitude Valley Brisbane. The event is free to attend. Head to www.jamesst.com.au for more info.

Who is coming along? Let me know, it would be great to go shopping with you.

star.tattoos. + sass & bide.

16 Aug

First of all, sorry for my absence. I have had a hectic few weeks, first with birthday catch ups and now with job applications… I won’t go into detail but let’s just say I haven’t had time for the blog *sad panda*

So as you can tell, a lot has been happening/changing for me over the last week. One of those changes was of the “cosmetically enhanced varieties” (no no, not plastic surgery). My sister and I had an agreement that we were going to get matching tattoos. She went ahead and got hers, and I always put mine off. Partly because I didn’t want to part with the money and another part of me was a bit scared. Was it going to hurt? How does it feel? Does it resemble a needle at all? Was I gonna chicken out?

So for my birthday, my sister booked me in for my tattoo. I went and had it done last Tuesday, and I’m proud to say – I didn’t chicken out (and if you want to know, it doesn’t hurt that much. Just a slight burning sensation). So here is my new/first tattoo!

the new addition

Guess who else has matching star tattoos? The Sass & bide girls!

And guess what? Sass & bide are launching a stylish eyewear collection; and each pair is stamped with a symbol of creative duo Sarah-Jane Clarke and Heidi Middleton’s friendship: a star — featured on the tip of every arm — inspired by a tattoo which both designers have. Cute! Maybe if my sister and I ever design something together we can place a star on it yer?

The girls from the sass & bide team including senior creative & accessories designer Pip Edwards and marketing manager Sam Dekauwe join Sarah-Jane and Heidi as the faces for the campaign for the first time. The new eyewear range will be available in sass & bide boutiques, Myer stores and select optical retailers nationally from September 1.
