MADE IN AUS: 5 Aussie labels with ethics we love

posted by Karlicca Culalic January 18, 2018 0 comments

In 2018, our fashion faux pas go beyond our style choices. There is a much darker side beneath fashion’s sparkling façade, where labels mean luxury and more shoes equal more happiness (and it’s not blisters and bank accounts in anguish). It is discovering the fashion industry is the second most polluting industry in the world. Yikes. That’s why we LOVE uncovering labels with sustainable intentions, especially Australian ones. Here’s five that absolutely need to be on your radar…

posted by Karlicca Culalic December 18, 2017 0 comments

Let’s talk New Years. What are you doing, where are you going, who are you going with…what are you wearing? (Oh god, what am I wearing). These are all questions I’ve been asked within the last few days I have no idea the answers to. Except maybe what I’m wearing – a gal always sort of secretly knows… all this, and I haven’t even wrapped my Christmas presents yet. Oh dear.

If you’re like me (stuck), you could be just an instant away from the turn-around moment. Here’s a roundup of a few Brisbane NYE events and there’s a high chance you are very much likely to adore! Bring in the New Year in true BT style. Fabulously, that is.

Presents, parties, stone fruit and beach weather. Add in, Love Actually, Michael Buble and the cute pastel hats you get in Christmas bon-bons – you know, the ones that seriously do not fit anyone’s head and sling over one eye whilst you eat your weight in pav but everyone still loves and insists to wear anyway? Those. That’s my list of reasons why December is my absolute favourite month of the year. And here’s one more: CHRISTMAS LIGHTS.

If you love to hit up the most lit suburbs (literally) each Christmas, then look no further. Here’s where you’ll find Brisbane’s best lighting displays…

A PROLOGUE TO A NEW BT FASHION SERIES

Red carpets and runways. That’s where it begins. Then it’s the shoe silhouette haunting fashion magazines and the article slinging around the arms of fashion’s elite. It’s the colours creeping into your Instagram feed and the way beauty vloggers create their makeup looks. Influencers are wearing it. Your friends are wearing it and before you know it, your subconscious fashion self is staring down your wardrobe telling yourself things like, wear those tennis shoes with that dress! Put denim on denim!  Wear that school scrunchie! Buy the Birkenstocks! And why? All because it’s #TRENDING. Continue Reading

The Official BT Wishlist: Our Top 25+ Christmas Gifting Ideas

posted by Karlicca Culalic December 7, 2017 0 comments
THIS LIST STARTS WITH A STORY…

It was a mid-November morning when I noticed Westfield had put up their Christmas decorations. It was at that point I made the executive decision to ignore them (just for a while). As if paying attention to them would trigger the overwhelming notion that my gift ideas could be mapped out on a scale of non-existent to, well, majorly uninspiring. Fast forward to today (more than a while later) and here I am sitting at my desk, flicking two pages of my diary back and forth with zero change in circumstances. No presents and no ideas! So how do you turn this all-too-familiar Christmas narrative into a Christmas miracle you ask?! Five words: the official BT Christmas Wishlist. It’s a collection of our most-loved products this year and it makes a dashing list of Christmas gift ideas if I do say so myself. Consider it our present to you. Merry Christmas!

It’s a little cliché but there is a phrase from Eat, Pray, Love that has always resonated with me in regards to personal wellness. It reads you have to participate relentlessly in the manifestation of your own blessings. Like most though, my own personal well being tends to fall second to the bustle of everyday life. So in preparation for Christmas, I’ve found five AMAZING wellness gift experiences from some of Brisbane’s premium day spa’s and very best health centres! That way, you can opt to work them into your own wish lists or gift them to someone special.
