The Sou’West Vintage Fest 2017 review

The Sou’West Vintage Fest has got to be one of the most colourful, chilled, entertaining days in WA’s south west. Aiming to bring together a community of vintage lovers to celebrate all things retro, the full-day event held every year in November is jam packed with good, ole fashioned fun. This year’s theme was beach party so the place was awash with bright leis, Hawaiian shirts and old-school surfboards. With plenty of family-friendly activities during the day and turning up the heat at night, it’s quickly become one of my favourite events and something I look forward to every year.

5 easy ways to reduce your use of plastic

The other day, I got chatting to a woman who was taking part in Plastic Free July  – a challenge that asks you to refuse single-use plastic for the month. I have to be honest, up until that conversation I really didn’t realise how much we rely on plastic. After I spoke to her I started trying to make more conscious decisions instead of blindly reaching for the plastic wrap or tossing plastic packaging into the recycling bin.

It’s not easy, that’s for sure. Cherry tomatoes – they come in a plastic container. My favourite skincare – plastic tubes and bottles. Chocolate – wrapped in plastic. But just being aware of how much plastic we use every day is the first step to making smarter choices and looking for alternatives.

The Eisteddfod at the State Theatre Centre + WIN TICKETS

When I was in high school, I dreamed of becoming an actor. I loved the spectacle of it, the ability to be another character, to step outside of my introvert self and explore the endless possibilities acting offered. I took drama classes at school and did OK – my teacher’s wouldn’t have said I was destined to be a star but I wasn’t terrible either. I even thought about going to WAAPA, but somewhere along the line I realised I liked the stories more than the acting and got into writing instead.

But there is something still so undeniably exciting about theatre, whether it’s a world class or an amateur production, it just ignites that sense of possibility within me. That’s why I am so excited to be running a competition to give away a double pass to see The Esiteddfod at the State Theatre Centre to share the magic of performance.
