Happy Friday! We've been a busy bunch this week, with various important events (and some not so) keeping us in the loop. Jess hit the 2013 Foxtel Program Launch mid-week, where she spotted Chris Hemsworth and Jennifer Hawkins, while some of us spied the lovely — and so teeny! — Bethenny Frankel at an event held to showcase her SkinnyGirl Cocktails range. Ali attended the launch of the Zegna A/W sunglasses collection, and spied some goood lookin' suits while she was at it; the One Teaspoon A/W collection launch was a change of pace but just as impressive. Throw in some green mascara, a big, beautiful breakfast, nail polish, some seriously good bargains and a lot of chatter, and you've got yourself a week at Sugar. There's lots to see — click through now to check it out!
We may fast be approaching the end of Summer, but we're still in party mode! With FabSugar editor Ali hitting numerous city hotspots to check out Autumn/Winter fashion collections (so many brights!), BellaSugar ed Alison chatting with Ruby Rose and Miranda Kerr — both are doing cool new things with their famous manes — and PopSugar's Jess attending a celeb-filled lunch, we were full up this week with all things bright and beautiful. In between the various events, we made room for chocolate (obviously), a bit of braiding and a lot of lingerie-related goodness. Click through to check it all out, and happy Friday!
Well, it's been a fashion- and beauty-filled week, to say the least! Much of our time was taken up by the David Jones A/W '13 Fashion Launch, which was held on Wednesday night. Ali and Alison had access to all the behind-the-scenes action, and they spent some time chatting to the gorgeous Miranda Kerr about all things style and beauty. In the office, we were blown away by Beyoncé's crazy-good Super Bowl performance, and Jess scored tickets to an event fit for a princess. In amongst it all, we saw pretty new products, received some exciting deliveries, and made sure we took some time out for a drink (or two!). Click through to see everything else we got up to!
It's been a big week here in Sydney, with lots of red carpet events and celebrity sightings to fill up our time. PopSugar editor Jess was up to her ears in Aussie stars (and a couple international) when she hit both the AACTA Awards and the Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters premiere in Sydney. We spied so many gorgeous dresses on people like Cate Blanchett and Jessica Mauboy, and we were loving Megan Gale's dark, voluminous waves when she stepped onto the carpet. Ali went to fashion showings and received a very cool, very Chanel gift, while Alison's been trying out some new nail polish colours and perfecting her travel beauty kit. There's plenty more behind-the-scenes action to see — click through to check it out!
The weeks here at Sugar are sliding by so fast, we can't believe we're already ending our third week back! It's been a really big and busy week, with the Critics' Choice Awards last Friday and the Golden Globes on Monday taking over our minds and computer screens. In between scoping out all the amazing dresses and divine beauty looks, we were trialling new products that landed on our desks, picking up some fun deliveries (we love a good slogan tee!) and interviewing the lovely Rose Byrne at the premiere of her new movie, I Give It a Year. There was plenty more action — click through to check it all out and happy weekend, everyone!
Well, we are well and truly back into the swing of things here at Sugar! Going back to work isn't the greatest thing in the world, but our transition from sloth-like sunbathers into busy working bees was made much easier by some lovely happenings along the way. One of us got engaged (cue squeals and tears) and has been receiving stunning flowers and well-wishes, while others have been hitting movie premieres and the ice-cream fridge to keep cool on hot days. There were pretty deliveries from Etsy, yummy Summer-friendly foods, plenty of awards-season action and some bright nail polish colours to liven up our work wear. And, being a new year and all, we've all made some goals for the year ahead — click through to see what we got up to, and what we want to achieve for the year ahead!
Welcome back, Sugars. We're slowly getting back into the swing of things here at work in sunny Circular Quay, but our minds are definitely still in holiday mode! We kickstarted our Christmas break with a big event — the premiere of Les Misérables in Sydney, complete with two of the film's stars, Hugh Jackman and Russell Crowe — but from there on out it was all about big, happy team dinners, Christmas cupcakes, sunny days at the beach, and for lucky BellaSugar editor Alison, a sun-soaked trip to Bali. Click through the gallery to see what else we all got up to, and here's to a fantastic year ahead!
How do you sum up a year of Sugar? Celebrities. Colour. Friends. Entertainment. Fashion. Beauty. Laughter. Food — so much food. 2012 has been such a great year, we'll be sorry to see the back of it. . . but so excited to do it all over again in 2013! This year, we bid adieu to a much-loved staff member, and welcome two newbies who are loving every minute. We met mega stars like Nicole Richie, Miranda Kerr, Daniel Craig, Kate Bosworth, Kristen Stewart and many more. We saw endless amounts of brand spankin' new fashion collections and trends, we tried and tested new beauty products, and we were lucky enough to be on the receiving end of some epic gifts. In between all that, we ate our building's weight in chocolate, macarons and cake pops, indulged in a few champagnes, and above all, had the best time doing it all together. We've captured it all here in pics — just click through to see all that went down this year at Sugar!
Just as all the big celebrity events wrap up for the year, the Christmas presents have started rolling in . . . And aren't we loving it! BellaSugar editor Alison's been a lucky girl, receiving all sorts of pretty goodies to try out before the holiday break — we're talking Tom Ford fragrances, Model Co lipsticks and nail polishes in the greatest colours imaginable and so much more. Fashion editor Ali also got in on the fun, checking out Fab new pieces from Cotton On, Mink Pink and Some Days Lovin', and receiving a sweet pair of customised Havaianas. Have we mentioned the cake pops, delish advent calendars, cherries and Tim Tams we consumed? It's all in here and more — just click through to check it all out!
When we look back at the pictures we've shared on Instagram over the past week, they kind of scream "Summer" to us. From beautiful tropical prints (on nails and clothing!) to an amazing surfboard being gifted to FabSugar editor Ali and bright and beautiful makeup colours hitting Alison's desk, everything has us craving to be out in the sunshine. Of course, we've gotta work (shame) so when we weren't checking out cool new season collections, eating cupcakes or testing products, we were writing up about Kate Middleton's pregnancy, learning about clever developments in the science of beauty and celebrating the approaching end of the year with some of our mates. There's so much more that kept us busy — click through the gallery to check it all out!
