The Proposal


Since my parter “Brendan,” and I got engaged 3 weeks ago, I’ve had plenty of people asked me how it happened, so I thought I better share the details on my website.

Let’s just say it’s been a crazy few weeks, it all started when we knew we had our handover of our brand new house. On the same day that we got our keys to our new house, Brendan asked me to marry him.

After 6 years of being together, once the handover had happened, he asked me to come out to the pool area, (our pride and joy) and as soon as I opened up the gate I had a feeling that something was about to happen. He got a little weird, he told me that he was going to push me in the pool, then he was like, “na, just kidding, but there is something else.”

He got nervous, I got nervous, then he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. Initially, I was like “Woah!” I was speechless (which we know is a first.) I also may have said a few choice words then of course I said, “YES!”

After that moment, we were both laughing hysterically, trying to understand what just happened. Then he said to me “shit, you did say yes, didn’t you?”

30 Minutes later we knew we had all our brand new furniture being delivered. So, we were screwing furniture together using the alan key in one hand and the phone in the other making all the calls to our close family and friends to tell them about the engagement.

Safe to say I can’t get enough of my ring, so much so, you’ve probably noticed the crazy amounts of Ring Cam’s I’ve been doing. It catches the light, it’s absolutely amazing and now I’m so stoked I get to organise a wedding!

Since our breakfast show started on Hot 91.1, 2 years ago my co-hosts (Dave & Sam) have given me so much crap about not being engaged LOL!

So, I couldn’t wait to share the news with them and the Sunshine Coast, LIVE on air the next day.

So if you have any tips on venues, budgets, planning etc. I’d love to hear from you!

Anyway, No doubt there will be more ring cam’s on my Instagram. The question is, when is everyone gonna get sick of them? Not me!





A fellow Sunny Coaster and fashion Quaaaween, Tam Wrigley from Style TV, had the pleasure of meeting and interviewing Katy Perry while she was in Brisbane for her Witness The Tour. I was so jelly, I just had to find out all the deets!

I’ll pass you over to Tam…


Last Friday Night

While there was no dancing on tabletops nor drinking too many shots, there may have been a kiss but I forgot, there was however a theatrical, fun and an action packed performance by Katy Perry at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre as she bedazzled the crowd on her Witness The Tour.

As the Fashion Ambassador for Myer Brisbane City and Myer Maroochydore, I was given the opportunity to meet up with Katy Perry at last Friday night’s concert.

At the age of 9, Katheryn Elizabeth Hudson, now famously known as Katy Perry, started her singing career in a church choir which was only natural seeing her parents where pastors.

What would you say to those young adoring fans that look at you and want to be “Katy Perry” one day?

“One message I want to deliver is whether you are 8 or 80, anything you set your mind to, you can do it.  You are the creator of your own dreams and path.

What is the key to success?

You just don’t become something overnight, that’s a whole myth, I totally believe it takes a lot of persistence, hard work and encouragement from family and friends.  You need to be with the people that totally believe in you.  Doing what you love most and having fun with it along the way.  Success comes with that.

What have been some of the struggles to get you here today?

Surrounding yourself with the right people, friends and family. Don’t work with people that are only going to support you every once in a while because they think your going to make it one day, work with people who are going to believe in you 125% because they are the people that are going to get you somewhere.

That was the message of the night.  With so many young impressionable Katy Kat fans in the audience, one message Katy wanted to convey is that you can be anything you set your mind to and to follow your dreams.

It was an action packed 2 hour show with theatrical performances, an abundance of colour, athleticism and eye popping stage props, puppets, inflatable balloons and backup dancers, who’s costumes where just as vibrant as the show itself.

Katy was a girl after my own heart with a whooping 6 costume changes in the space of 2 hours, now that’s a fashion dedication.  Have I found a new best friend in Katy Perry, I think so!

Kim Kardashian West’s Wet Hair Look

Ah, the Kardashians. Whether you love them or hate them, they have a real knack for fashion. Now before you roll your eyes at me, take a look at this look Kim Kardashian West was rocking at her youngest sister, Kylie Jenner’s 21st.


The “wet hair look,” I have been eyeing off this hair-do for a few months now, wondering when I’ll have the guts to give it a go. So, if you’re like me and ready to take the wet hair plunge then give this a go:

  1. Start with wet hair. (Classic. LOL)
  2. Grab some mousse or gel, give it a cheeky scrunch.
  3. Use preferably more gel to get into the roots of your hair. (The more gel you add, the wetter it looks.)
  4. Comb your hair back at the roots.
  5. Add some glossing spray or serum to the end of your hair.
  6. Hold that bad boy in place with hairspray.

Easy- peezy! So many products at affordable prices, make it work girl!
