Red Lantern on Riley and Red Lily Cocktail Bar First Birthday

The food was all style at this party on Monday night. We loved all the canapés. The most moreish were the grilled lobster tail with witlof and lime aioli, the suckling pig, and seared tuna with roe and pomelo salad, and prawn and corn cakes with tomato chutney. The freshness and flavour combinations had us going back for more.

And whilst the wine and champagne were great, I so enjoyed the grapefruit daiquiris and other cocktails including one with pomegranate.

Author and television presenter Indira Naidoo was very popular and enjoying it all.

OnePiece Australia Launch Party

005 003

Hilarious! Almost everyone rocked up wearing their Onesie to the OnePiece Launch Party at The Bucket List at Bondi Beach for what was expected to be and delivered on being a night to remember. TV and radio host Mike Goldman was there sporting a Cammo Onesie with camera in hand, guiding Layla of Big Brother and Celebrity Apprentice fame. Perth-raised and international model Sarah Pauley was there looking stunning in a OnePiece College, which happened to be what I was wearing and one of my many favourites in the collection. It was amazing to see the variety of onesies – the colours, the patterns, the styles, and sleeveless and three-quarter length pant versions too. Everyone looked great in them. I could wear these 24/7. Rumour had it that someone was rocking a shorts version. And the glamorous set were there in force.

A snow machine showered snow on guests at the front of The Bucket List where there was a mini snow mountain that proved to be a great source of ammunition for snow fights. Vodka cocktails in Crystal Head branded, skull-stemmed martini glasses were a hit. We were wrapped in the vodka, lime and apple juice shots served in skull shaped shot glasses. And what would a winter wonderland party be without vodka/Red Bull frozen daiquiris. The lush canapés of tomato arancini balls and crumbed chicken wings along with the very Norwegian meatball rolls fuelled the dancing.

It was certainly the place to be!

Sunnier Side Up Media & VIP Launch

What a lovely night last night was at Hugos Lounge. Warm and brimming with guests eager to support the film campaign to stop youth suicide. Mike Goldman from Big Brother Live MC’d the event. Ruby Jacenko designed limited release t-shirts for sale to raise funds for the campain. Brittany Cairns and Fatai V from The Voice gave a special performance. Additional entertainment came via a Kevin Rudd impersonator that mingled with the guests. It was a selfie fest.

Lynne McGranger was adored by so many fans. And she kept them laughing with lots of funny stories. We had lots of fun for a good cause.

The Meat & Wine Co Media & VIP Launch

The Meat & Wine Co celebrated the launch of another of its famous restaurants last night. The new restaurant is at The InterContinental Hotel on Macquarie Street, Sydney. It is a lovely restaurant with multiple choices of rooms with different ambiences to dine in.

We loved the canapes including fresh Sydney Rock oysters with lemon juice in a shot glass ready to pour, salmon tartare, mini beef burgers, tempura prawns, lemon & herb marinated chicken skewers and other delectable meat dishes, while sipping on Moet. The lovely and stylish Kate Peck graced the venue.
