Fringe World 2017: The Little Death Club review

Calling all punks, freaks and weirdos – if you want to get a little loose and late night, The Little Death Club is just the debauchery you’re looking for.

The always witty and deliciously inappropriate London Cabaret Award winner Bernadette Byrne (best known as half of the hilariously bawdy EastEnd Cabaret duo) is here to shake up Fringe World with her new dark and salacious after party.

Fringe World 2017 – the artists’ top picks

In addition to sharing the shows I most want to see at Fringe World 2017, I thought I’d do something different this year and ask some of Perth’s most-loved Fringe World performers and producers what shows they want to see this year.

I hope you enjoy getting the inside scoop on unmissable shows from the artists involved in Fringe World this year.

Fringe World 2017: my top picks

It’s here! Following the media launch this morning, the 2017 Fringe World Festival will kick off tomorrow and run through until 19th February.

When I first started writing my top picks posts back in 2013, there were about 250 events to choose from across the entire festival – this year, there are a whopping 700+ events to choose from, across more than 150 venues. I just think that is absolutely incredible – although it does make it hard to narrow down my top picks!

The books I read in 2016

In case you didn’t know, I am a certified #booknerd. I love to read and have for as long as I can remember; my bookshelves are overflowing, there are piles of books all around my house, I can find a quote from a favourite book for any occasion, and I just can’t stop buying books despite already having  SO MANY that need to be read.

In 2015 I set myself a challenge of reading a certain number of books and failed miserably. In 2016 I set myself a much more realistic goal of reading 25 books, and I’m happy to say I smashed that goal, finishing my 35th book just before New Year’s Eve.

And because I am always curious about what other people are reading, here are the books I read in 2016:

The Food Project: Health Freak Café Ellenbrook

Back in December, before the Christmas madness took hold, I was invited to the opening day event for Health Freak Café in Ellenbrook. As you may know, I’m a huge fan of Health Freak so I was super excited to come along and check out the latest addition to their family.

Now Ellenbrook isn’t normally my first choice when I’m looking to head out for brekky or lunch, but at only 20km from the CBD it’s a rapidly growing suburb with lots of families, so it’s the perfect spot for a healthy café. It also happens to be where one of my best friends lives, so this was just the excuse I needed to pop out for a late brekky with her and her two young girls.

Beauty Bites November

I don’t know about you, but I am always on the lookout for recommendations when it comes to beauty and skincare. In the past I’ve tended to stick to one or two brands for fear of wasting money on something that just doesn’t work for me, but these days I read a lot more about products and am more willing to branch out and try new things. In fact I love nothing more than wandering through Priceline or Chemist Warehouse looking for new goodies to try, so I wanted to share my thoughts on a few products. You can expect to see these mini reviews on a monthly basis, so let me know what you think!
