I heart Choo. Jimmy Choo

posted by Emmy O'Neill September 29, 2017 0 comments

 

I blame Carrie Bradshaw for my unrealistic love affair with Jimmy Choo. In case you missed the whole SATC fabulousness (series box set junkie over here) Jimmy Choo is one of the most iconic shoe designers in the world! And I have to say, Jimmy Choo handbags make me go weak at the knees.  Continue Reading

‘Embrace your inner German’

posted by Emmy O'Neill September 28, 2017 0 comments

Any tagline that reads ’embrace your inner German’ is always going to get me across the line. Growing up I used to hide my love of sauerkraut, spätzle, leberwurst, semmelknödel (we called bread balls) and pretzels… They were not the kind of foods that the other kids found ‘cool’ or ‘exotic’… And whist sauerkraut is on trend as a 2017 super gut food; I can honestly say I have been eating that fermented cabbage stuff for 32 years!

Time To Write

posted by Emmy O'Neill September 11, 2017 0 comments

How often do we take pen to paper and just write? I mean we rarely even have to sign for using a credit card these days! I know for me there is so much disconnect from paper and pens; we are living in an all-consuming digital age. Phones, tablets, computers, e-readers… it is all screens. Can you remember when getting a pen licence was the coolest thing to happen in primary school? #ThoseWereTheDays Those glory days of papers and pens might seem like a distant memory of the past; but research by Officeworks, in partnership with Deakin University, has revealed that we should actually dust off those pen licences, get out our notebooks and start writing!

Spring into bliss

posted by Emmy O'Neill September 8, 2017 2 Comments

I’ve recently had a few health issues, so along with a huge prescription medicine list I am also looking at a more holistic approach to healing. I’m combining yoga and mediation (which can be a bit of challenge with two little children in the house), I am also really focusing on what I am eating. As a coffee-loving-foodie you can image how hard it was when I heard caffeine-alcohol-gluten-sugar-dairy-meat-FREE. Like what do I eat? Well vegetables. I eat vegetables and I drink kombucha, herbal tea and those oh-so-on-trend turmeric lattes (on a nut mylk, #obvs). Continue Reading

The Hamlet Apocalypse

posted by Emmy O'Neill August 16, 2017 0 comments

You can’t hide from live theatre. You can’t pause the show, or look on your phone, or be distracted by life. Theatre is in your face. It is live; breathing and alive.

Some pieces of theatre stick like glue to your memory. They get under your skin and almost crawl around; unable to get out, permanently living inside all of your cells. The Hamlet Apocalypse by The Danger Ensemble has well and truly got inside my head, under my skin and inside every single one of my cells! I’ve literally not been able to stop thinking about the performance since Friday night! Continue Reading

Spotlight On: Alice Foulcher

posted by Emmy O'Neill August 14, 2017 0 comments

This morning I’m having a virtual hangout with Melbourne based actor/writer Alice Foulcher. We are talking all things, great Australian Films; (that’s right Alice & her hubby Gregory made a great Australian film), tight-ass movie budgets, making people laugh, fashion, keeping it real and of course coffee.

Alice stars in and co-wrote ‘That’s Not Me’ Film with her husband/director Gregory Erdstein. ‘That’s Not Me’ was created whilst doing an artists residency in Paris, France… sounds pretty schamncy fancy #right! Well these down-to-earth Aussies are here to show the world that a) Australians can make GREAT comedies and B) you don’t need a shit tonne of money to do it.

That’s Not Me is a tale of shattered dreams and charts the heartbreak and hope that comes from following your childhood dreams. Featuring ever so-lovely Alice Foulcher in the roles of Polly and Amy, with support from Isabel Lucas (TRANSFORMERS: REVENGE OF THE FALLEN), and Richard Davies (OFFSPRING).
