Welcome October!

Happy Spring/Halloween month! The fact we’re now less than 3 months out from Christmas is a bit frightening!

This month we check out new music from American lads Brockhampton, traveling across the ditch for some sun and a thrilling flick featuring Blake Lively and Anna Kendrick.

Music: Brockhampton
American group Brockhampton are back making waves with their newest music release, iridescence. The boys were recently in NZ for the first show of their ‘i’ll be there’tour ahead of Australian shows and US dates. Brockhampton’s Auckland show coincided with the release date so kiwis got to hear the album played in full live for the first time, ahead of the show, the group surprised fans at a screening of their documentary The Longest Summer in America and conducted an intimate Q&A. ‘iridescence’is out now and it’s just the beginning.

Travel: Brisbane
One of my besties has moved to Brisbane recently so I’ve been planning a trip over later this year which has meant my feed soon has filled up with Brissy inspo! The last time I was in the sunny town was many years ago on a family vacay so I was keen to do a google search (or five) to find the new hot spots including Arc + Family’s pink paradise El ‘Rosa (pictured).

Book: Cordially Invited
Zoe Sugg (or Zoella as she’s known on the web) is back with a new book, except this time she’s moved from her fiction Girl Online trilogy and is sharing all of her hostess and celebration tips via Cordially Invited. Zoe celebrates getting people together, having a shindig and welcoming guests – Cordially Invitedis your new go-to guide for ‘making an event and memory out of each day.’
