Gah Christmas already!

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas… no, it IS Christmas, like just around the corner!! But don’t fret, I have your back. You can do everything at Harbour Town (or HTown as like to call it), and I mean EVERYTHING. From mum, grandma, dad, kids, pets…and everyone in between. Let’s get shopping…   FOR HER Bags and Luggage Direct have a super sale at the mo, with Tony Bianco bags from $21.50 (these were $99!) and Kardashian Kollection down to $29.50! Pick up a voucher from Centre Management for an additional 15% off until Dec 15. Are you kidding me?! I also love the Shiels Direct leather and stainless steel bracelets for only $30. Slip that in my stocking thanks huz… For the fragrance lover, Cosmetics Fragrance Direct have the gorgeous Elizabeth Arden Green Tea gift pack for just $25… that includes 100ml fragrance, bath gel, body cream and makeup bag. Shopping for the sporty friend? Then check out this hot Lorna Jane combo of tank ($15) and shorts ($30). I think I’ve […]

One outfit, 4 ways – Spring Racing and beyond!

If you are anything like me, where you love the Spring Racing season, but don’t love how much every different outfit costs then you’ll love this. One outfit, 4 ways. I’ve started with the most gorgeous pair of off white culottes from Cue for a bargain price of $67.50 (original price $225 in full price stores) paired with the coolest top from Seed, which set me back only $63.96 (almost 50% off the original price, thanks very much). The best thing about separates? You can wear them again and again, with a different top or bottom for a completely new look. And guess what? Cost per wear becomes totally negligible. So there, husband…   Derby Day: Traditionally, black and white, I’ve added some stripes and spots for a little personality. Stunning headpiece from Mimco for only $69, plus another 20% off until November 8. Shoes from Nine West $69.96 (ridic, I know!) Necklace $79.20 Mimco (20% off until Nov 8) Clutch $63.20 Mimco   Melbourne Cup Day: This is your day to shine, so dress […]

Winter warmers week!

This weeks shopping trip was a bit wet…but armed with my hot coffee, I was raring to go. And with plenty of shelter shops, ahem, I mean stops, along the way, I was never caught in the rain. First, I found onesies at Sparkles for just $6. Yep, you read right. $6. Surely the fabric would cost more than that… one in every colour please. I then thought I better pick something up for the huz, so I popped into Connor, who were having a super sale of 3 items for $50. Any knit, shirt and jean for $50! Say what?! Needless to say, I didn’t walk out empty handed.. Next stop was City Chic… I must admit, this was my first time in this store, and my glob, was I surprised! Gorgeous cocktail dresses in the most flattering shapes, knits, tops..you name it! In sizes from 14, there was something that would suit everyone. A cream knit with leatherette belt caught my eye, and at $50 it caught the attention of my purse too.. I’ve […]

Lorna Jane becomes a night club…

After having my kids, not only have my feet grown (please tell me I’m not the only one?!) but my fingers are permanently swollen. Not a great look! So my engagement ring and wedding bands have been safely tucked away until I get them resized…except, I spotted the most gorgeous engagement, wedding and eternity ring set at Shiels today at 70% off! A three ring set for less than $1800! Surely I could convince the huz… It feels like everyone is going on a winter escape at the moment, and when I say everyone, I mean everyone except me… first world problems I know. So I don’t feel left out, I wander to Strandbags to see what special deals they have. And they have plenty. Nearly everything is on sale, with their Flylite brand at $100 off. Mmmm, pristine beaches, blue water…I can dream. Also happening today is the massive Lorna Jane warehouse sale. This is on once a year across all outlets only, Australia wide. Nothing is over $60. You could be forgiven for […]

Just a little something for the kids…

I’m always on the lookout for kids clothes…new season, or end of season that I can purchase a size or two bigger for next year. And my go to place is Cotton On Kids; always on trend, always great prices, and huge stock turnover, so there is always something new. I’ve had a few requests for puffer vests and I knew Cotton On Kids could deliver. Great range of colours and styles from $15 – $20! Happy customer indeed! Next stop was Cheeki Kids, another awesome kids clothing and accessories store I’ve been shopping at for years. I love the big brands like Chloe and Burberry, but they also carry the coolest Aussie labels like Munster and Rock Your Baby too..which was 25% off the already marked price. Hulloo… Just a couple of doors down is Step Footwear, and I needed to buy my little Miss some uggs. Found the cutest panda pair by Emu Uggs for only $39.95! That’s a great buy for this iconic brand. I stopped into Typo because their totally cool […]

Boots, coffee and leather

So today, like most days, I go shopping with an open mind… I start with my usual skim latte [skim? full cream? Does it really matter?] at Coffee Club and their sensational smashed avocado on turkish bread with a side of scrambled eggs. To. Die. For. I decide to wander to Mimco to check out any new stock… and lo and behold. A blue beauty of a cross body bag hits me for six. You see, with 3 young kids, a cross body bag is my equivalent to a bejewelled evening clutch. It’s either a baby bag or cross body…that’s as glamorous as I get these days. This baby will be hitting the outlet store in the next week, so I set my alarm on my phone to EXTRA LOUD so I don’t miss out. I’ve had a few requests for tan ankle boots with a mid heel, so I make my way to Wittner. You want tan boots. Wittner have them a plenty. At 65% off, why not pick up a tan, black and […]

Shopping for Father’s Day – tips and bargains!

Last minute bargain Father’s Day Ideas… With Fathers Day just around the corner, I thought I’d help you all out with some top tips on where to shop for the special blokes in your life. You’re welcome. Harbour Town caters for just about every type of dad there is. For the cool casual dad, I’d be heading to Connor, Gazman, Roger David and Oxford. Ed Harry have a great range of new season shirts at outlet prices and at Tarocash there are chinos and shirts as far as the eye can see. If your dad is more into sweating it out then check out Adidas, Fila Brand Direct, Intersport, Sports Power and Converse. Brooks Factory Direct have a huge sale with their runners at more than 50% off! Where at JT Surf, your skater dad can hold onto his youth a little bit more with big surf brands like Hurley, Rip Curl and Santa Cruz. Perhaps you need to shop a more mature look? We’ve got that covered too. Stafford Ellinson, Rivers and Black Pepper […]

Me – huz – kids – now back to me…

I just love wandering Harbour Town, looking for the next bargain, seeing what treasures I can find. As I walked past Millers Fashion, something told me to stop and go in. Call it my bargain instinct. Glad I did, because I found THE softest cargo pant EVER and a navy and white knit all for $31. I repeat, $31 the entire outfit. They have 40% off store wide – even the most reduced stuff. Prices start at a crazy $4…. The huz has specifically asked for work shirts, so I head into Gazman, where racks upon racks of stripe, patterned, plain business shirts are only $29. Done. Now back to me. Nine West have a super sale with 40% off even the sale price…so leather shoes starting at $30? That is so my thing. Designer, cheap, awesome! It’s been a while since I picked something up for the kids, and you can’t go wrong in Smiggle. It’s their go-to whenever we are at H-Town. I love their 3 for $10 tables…something for each of them. […]

Shop, coffee, shop, coffee and repeat…

Big shopping week, so to fuel up, I start at Silvana Cafe where a coffee and cake deal gives me the caffeine and sugar hit required to go the distance. Yummo. Time for nails. Paris Nails and Beauty have this fandagalled product called SNS, which lasts longer than shellac and is better for your nails than acrylic. I love! And only $45. Once a month, add that to my beauty regime.. Speaking of regime, I really need to exercise more, and I can’t do that without the correct undergarments holding everything in place (read: boobs). So I head into Bonds, as I’ve just discovered they stock a massive range of Berlei. And these are my absolute fave sports bras. Oh, and they have 30% off. Bonus!! Another awesome find if you are new to Harbour Town…Union Clothing are a huge stockist for cmeo collective and Finders Keepers The Label…but at a fraction of the cost. And today, they have racks and racks of stuff at $79.99 and $99.99!! Good gawd… For those that know me, […]

Cross body, cushions and classic suits… just another day at HT!

I still can’t believe Harbour Town has an Oroton outlet. I mean, a minimum of 60% off? That’s just nuts. And we all know how much I love navy. And cross body bags. And sunnies. So when I can pick up both, at under $200, from Oroton, you can imagine my excitement. Squeeee!! I’m also getting organised for Father’s Day, and at Cosmetics Fragrance Direct, they have the most awesome Kenneth Cole gift packs for just $49. Scentsational… If you’re anything like me and have a scatter cushion obsession, then head into Adairs. Bright, fun, stylish and only $9.95 each. Perfect for my daughters room. Next to the other 67 cushions on her bed… I’ve had a few requests for stylish, slim, well made and cut suits. Well, Stafford Ellinson is the place to go. Handstitched, wool, classically made and considering these suits are usually over $1000….you can pick one up from $349. Would you like me to repeat that? $349. Yep, most are 70% off the original retail price. Just don’t tell the big […]

If the price is right…

There is usually no rhyme or reason when I shop. I generally have an idea of what I’m looking for, but if something grabs my eye, I’m easily swayed. Especially if the price is right. Granted, I am supposed to be looking for some shoes for the huz, so I wander into Industrie first, as I love their styling. Lo and behold, they don’t disappoint! Gorge lace up boat shoes for just $59.95. Done. As I walk past Converse, my eyes are drawn to the wall of sneakers at 50% off!! Wall to wall Converse at a fraction of the cost. My boys love these shoes – cool, comfy, last forever. Popped into Oxford, and boy am I glad I did…everything in store is at least 75% off! Hot cocktail dresses at around $57? You betcha. Never thought I’d be writing that sentence…. Next up at Diesel they have a whole rack of hawt mens shirts at 70% off. Only $50. Tick another item off for the huz. Such a good wifey. I’ve been looking […]

Welcome to Lia Loves Outlet

Hi, my name is Lia. And I’m a shopaholic. I love shopping. There, I said it. I. Love. Shopping. I love it, love it, love it! I love the thrill of setting off in search of an item, let’s say a harem pant in a leather look (specific I know, but work with me here) and coming away with an entire outfit, said leather pants included, for the price I was willing to pay just for the pants. Really, if you have a pulse and get excited by words like ‘SALE!’ and ‘40% off!’, and your significant other has looked at you suspiciously when you’ve stepped out in a new outfit (‘what this old thing?! I’ve had this for AGES!’) then no doubt, you love shopping too. Welcome to my club. And I’m not just talking clothes. Oh no, my addiction does not discriminate. My heart beats a little bit faster walking into a homewares store (don’t get me started on mid century modern). Handbags, oh my glob, handbags. I have more shoes than days in the year. I’ve got every […]

Review: Barnum at the Goodwood Institute

March Productions debut musical offering, Barnum, is a night of triumph, energy and monumental talent. With a perfectly simple, but effective set we are transported to the 1800s, where Anna and Amy Beecher take us on a historical journey with pictures and artefacts of Barnum’s life as we take our seats. P.T Barnum truly was an intriguing man, with a knack for promotion and humbug. This sets the scene for the extravaganza we are about to experience. Our first introduction to Barnum is him running through the audience with gusto, to end up on stage and immediately breaking the 4th wall to narrate his story. I am instantly drawn into Jayden Prelc’s portrayal of Barnum – charismatic, magnetic, dynamic, not to mention his natural comedic timing and prodigious voice. He navigated the wordy script and musical numbers with such relish. A true and rare performer of his age, I anticipate a professional career in his near future. Watch this space. His Charity Barnum, played by Alana Iannace, was sublime. She had steely strength and independence, […]

Review: Grand Finale at the Adelaide Festival Centre

Knowing nothing more than the title and its origins prior to the performance, Hofesh Shechter Company’s Grand Finale is a spectacular blend of electronic soundscape, live classical musicians, evocative lighting and choreography that is part contemporary, part trance and part traditional. We open to a bleak, dark stage, where huge black blocks, which resemble tombstones, shadow the musicians playing in the background. Ten culturally and artistically diverse dancers portray the survivors, if you will, of the sinking Titanic; while the quintet of musicians continue to play in sweet harmony, oblivious to the disaster that surrounds them. The mini orchestra is seamless as they move around the stage, inconspicuously and almost magically, with as much grace as the dancers themselves. The dancers. Oh the dancers. I’ve never seen an ensemble interpret the idiosyncrasies, nuances and manic silence of choreography quite like these incredible artists. Their language of movement, authenticity of storytelling through their bodies..it is quite the experience. One I’ve not felt like this before. While Shechter’s choreography has repetitive phrasing, it never feels monotonous. Quite […]

Review: Ulster American at Dunstan Playhouse

Theatre. The area in which something happens. And by god does it happen. Opening night buzz of the most talked about, and shocking, Ulster American was palpable; excited theatre goers packed Dunstan Playhouse to the sounds of 70s funk music, ready, or not so ready, to take in David Ireland’s extraordinary satire. Set in an apartment in London, an English director, an Oscar-winning American actor and a Northern Irish playwright meet to rehearse a West End play. Sounds like the beginnings of a good old fashioned joke, right? Well, the joke is on us. As the three converge to discuss the play’s challenges they will face when rehearsals begin the following morning; historical accuracies, national identity, politics, misogyny, feminism, Princess Diana and Brexit become the topic of debate in this contemporary, yet classic three-hander. No sooner do the actors hit the stage, one would not dispute their undeniable talent to hold the audience in the palm of their hand. Jay Conway (Darrell D’Silva) the boisterous, egotistical, contentious American box-office movie star, is equal parts intimidating, […]

Review: Palmyra at AC Arts – Main Theatre

Palmyra. A desecrated but still majestic city in Syria that was once one of the most important cultural centres of the ancient world. Destroyed by ISIS soldiers during their first occupation in 2015, the locals stood in disbelief, clapping their hands to their mouth when they saw the rubble, an act intended to terrorise the Syrian people. Look what they’ve done. And this is how we are introduced to Palmyra, the inventive oeuvre conceived, created and performed by Bertrand Lesca and Nasi Voutsas. Lesca and Voutsas are quite the pair. Working together since 2015, it is difficult to draw the line between reality and theatre; and this is what makes Palmyra so thrilling, applaudable, palpable, captivating and at times, uncomfortable. Performance art at its best. The stage is set with two black chairs, each with a plate by the legs. Except one plate is broken into pieces. ‘Llook what they’ve done’ to ‘they have really gone for it’ Voutsas utters. At the start, their relationship is playful; waltzing and spinning, dashing around the stage on […]

Review: Blaas at Thomas Edmonds Opera Studio, Adelaide Showgrounds

Blaas. Where does one begin? Quite simply, it is an experience like no other, one in which words cannot do it justice. Schweigman& present their Australian exclusive performance of Blaas, and it will delight, confuse, charm and ignite intense thought long after you’ve left the space. Blaas means ‘blow’, ‘breath’, ‘bubble’ and ‘bladder’ in Dutch and is a concept devised from the minds of award-winning director Boukje Schweigman, fashion designer turned visual artist Cocky Eek and performer Ibelisse Guardia Ferragutti. A study of space and time, wind and air and movement; this is theatre never encountered before. We are asked to leave our shoes and belongings at the door, and put scrub slippers over our feet. Already some theatre goers are uneasy. Upon walking into the stark, white room we sit on the white bench, and look out onto the large mass of white fabric at the back of the stage. Static noise is played through the speaker; an edgy sound that can be interpreted as almost cicada sounding. Slowly, we see the fabric rise […]

Review: Woman at the Bally at Gluttony

Looking for a night out to celebrate all things women in a man’s world through the storytelling of cabaret? Then head on over and catch Woman by the vocally talented chanteuse, Jodie Stubbs. She will take you on a historical journey through time; from the Garden of Eden, to the turn of the 20th century to modern day motherhood explored through song, story and comedy. Using music from Broadway, 60s classics, R&B, pop; you’ll enjoy this one-woman show as she navigates what it’s like to ‘have it all’. Jodie makes her grand entrance with strong opening vocals, before walking us through the long history of female oppression, beginning with the story of Florence Nightingale. She first sings ‘What’s Up?’ by 4 Non Blondes, and this becomes her theme song for the night…before she is interrupted by her ‘ringing’ phone – the babysitter. She then strives to get through her one hour show recounting how you can be a mum, cabaret star, wife and career woman – without having to check on the kids! The systematic […]

Review: Paul McDermott and Steven Gates at the Garden of Unearthly Delights

Tonight’s Fortuna Spiegeltent, the most elaborate and superbly air conditioned tent at The Garden of Unearthly Delights is the home of Paul McDermott and Steven Gates’ Go Solo (Together, as they say) for the next ten days. McDermott and Gates became friends in 1999 after meeting at the ARIAs, but this marks the beginning of their musical duo, after singing together privately for 5 years. Two of Australia’s most adored and revered comedic singer-songwriters, McDermott, from cult musical comedy group Doug Anthony All Stars and Good News Week (my fave) and Gates, one third of Tripod, bring Adelaide a show of old friend barneys, reminiscing, witty banter and spontaneous drivel scattered amongst their genius lyricism and songbook catalogue. We begin with Shopping Mall, Paul’s tongue in cheek ode to finally understanding common life after his high roller times with DAAS, followed by a rock, Chilli-Pepper-feel rendition of White Man Prison (loved it!). A beautiful Be My Queen, by Gatesy, with comical vocals by McDermott lead into an impromptu heckle of a 13 year old audience […]

Review: Sex and The Musical at Treasury 1860

Walking into Treasury 1860 on a hot Adelaide night, a Cosmopolitan was just what I needed to cool me down. And the cosmos were indeed flowing, in this perfect venue for Sex and the Musical. Taking our seats to the theme music that took me back, it’s hard to think that the show actually ended in 2004. But with 2 movies and reruns still going, this iconic and cult series still has a huge following. We are taken back before the action starts, a prequel, when Carrie’s boss tells her she’s losing her edge, so she goes on the hunt for a posse of friends ‘sweet, smart, sassy and sexy’ to help her get her mojo to write her successful columns again. Carrie’s opening song, The most interesting woman, is a hilarious send up introducing us to the main character, but also questioning how she affords her luxurious lifestyle on a columnists wage. A question we have all asked ourselves! Stefanie Rossi has the hair, the body, the look and the tutu to bring musical […]

Review: Djuki Mala at the Garden of Unearthly Desires

Tonight’s sold out, highly anticipated, award winning show, Djuki Mala are quirky, high-voltage, compelling, cheeky and joyous. And that is just the crowd warmer! Direct from Elcho Island, Djuki Mala (meaning bird mob) perform an incredible fusion of traditional Yolngu culture, contemporary dance and storytelling. They achieved overnight success when Frank Djirrimbilpilwuy (Big Frank) uploaded a clip of the ‘Chooky’ boys dancing to Zorba the Greek back in 2012. Lionel, Big Frank’s son, created this special video as a thank you to the Greek nurse, Liliane, who cared for his sister while she was sick. From the success of the video, which has had over 2.5 million views on YouTube, they have toured all over the world with their exuberant and effervescent interpretation of dance, song-lines and pop culture. Beginning with a history of colonisation, we see an opening of the four dancers in traditional costumes and ochre, with Gara (spears) and Galpu (spear thrower) and are introduced to Margaret, Big Frank’s wife, via the multimedia projection on stage. She tells us about Big Frank, […]

Review: By a Thread at The Peacock at Gluttony

I like seeing a show without expectation, so I do minimal research beforehand and be led purely by what I see on the stage. And what I saw this evening, By a Thread presented by One Fell Swoop Circus, was nothing short of magical. A thick, white rope strung between 2 large pulleys suspended from the top of The Peacock in a spotlight, greeted the audience as we took our seats. Soon, there were bodies clad in jeans and white tank tops entering the arena to take turns in pulling one end of the rope to unravel it upwards. Our attention is then drawn to a scream as a young woman, Ellen, swings on the other end into the crowd. This performer astounds me. She looks as graceful as a gazelle and delicate as a rose, but the strength her body has is incredible! All the performers are spectacularly powerful, agile, elegant and athletic. And there is no prejudice between the roles the performers play. Women being lifters and the base at times, while the […]

Review: Eddie Ifft at Adelaide Fringe

As a mother of 3, with 2 jobs and 1 husband, I love a night off to have a good belly laugh. So while my huz looks after the kids, I take my dad to see Eddie Ifft Walking on Eggshells. I can hear some of you chortle right about now…I have a cool dad who is not easily shocked or offended, so he was the perfect date. The US comedian has performed to sold out crowds around the world, hosts the successful Talkin’ Shit podcast and has released 3 DVDs, including one titled ‘I Love Pussy’, and 3 CDs with songs such as The Vagina Room and Freeze Enough Sperm, this guy is not afraid of a little over sharing [when I say a little, I mean a lot] or shock value. Ifft lives up to his reputation as a boundary pusher, being politically incorrect at the same time as being super funny. I found myself laughing at jokes and face palming at the same time. This is Eddie’s thing. Making ‘people laugh at […]

Review: All Change at Bakehouse Theatre

All Change [Phrase/British/Spoken] – Used for telling people on a train or a bus that they must leave it because it is not going any further. This is quite the metaphor for this play in so many ways. The fact that the train symbolises the end of the road for both our main characters, Ivor and his daughter Lily. That trains occupied a huge part of Ivor’s life, the notion of one’s train of thought and how dementia breaks this and the fact that no one actually likes change. Smokescreen Productions starts the conversation with their affecting and sentimental work, All Change. Produced with support of new Adelaide company, STARC Productions, All Change first began as a project based on a family experience of writer and actor, Tim Marriott. It had a limited but very well received run at Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2018 and this reception encouraged the team to reinvigorate and adapt to this year’s Fringe. Director Nicholas Collett was very lucky indeed to have the talented Stefanie Rossi and Tim Marriott as his […]

Review: Blackrock at The Arch at Holden Street Theatres – Adelaide Fringe

Blackrock and Nick Enright have been customary with drama school auditions around the country since the mid 90s, and with good reason. Inspired by the true events of a young girls murder on Newcastle’s Stockton Beach in 1989, Enright was asked to write an education piece that examines the world of adolescence, mateship, violence, and relationships. He was then commissioned by Sydney Theatre Company to expand the play into a full length work, and Blackrock was debuted in 1995 to critical acclaim. The town of Blackrock is shook when the body of a teenage girl is found the morning after a party, raped and murdered. The play does not depict the murder itself. Instead, the focus is on a teenager, Jared Kirby, torn between the choking culture of mateship and misogyny and the effect of Tracy’s death on her friends, the parents of those involved and the town. Although the play is now over 30 years old, Enright’s depiction of Australian youth culture is still front and centre today. The objectification of young women, binge […]

Review: Michael Griffiths – By Request at Le Cascadeur at Adelaide Fringe

Cabaret is not like anything else. Packed in like sardines, up close and personal, audience interaction. It’s not everyone’s cup of tea. But if you want to experience cabaret, there is no better introduction than Michael Griffiths. A seasoned performer, musical theatre trained, Helpmann Award winner, Michael brings his vivacious personality and captivating voice to Le Cascadeur at The Garden of Unearthly Delights with his show, Michael Griffiths: By Request. He delighted us with Sweet Dreams, In Vogue, Adolescent and Lucky. Blew us away with his Cole Porter tribute show and now brings all his favourites back for a rollicking rendition, this time with a band (the very talented Felicity on bass and Josh on drums). A casual but exuberant atmosphere, we are taken back to the 70’s and ABBA with Knowing Me, Knowing You, and here Michael explains his love affair with music began. He talks about his very first concert experience with his dad, seeing A-ha, which was the segue to Take on Me. Other favourites from Peter Allen, Barry Manilow, Queen (so […]

Review: Amelia Ryan – Simply the Breast at Le Cascadeur

On a balmy Saturday night, we packed ourselves into Le Cascadeur at the Garden of Unearthly Delights to see cabaret darling Amelia Ryan’s new show, Simply the Breast. Accompanied by Michael Griffiths, she takes you on a journey – an emotional, captivating, hilarious and honest one at that- through her life and the ‘breast’ of her previous shows, Storm in a D Cup, Lady Liberty and The Breast is Yet to Come. To set the scene, she waltzed onstage with a breast pump (my poor husband was mortified when tasked with holding it for her), and immediately broke the fourth wall with candid satire and jest. Taking us from her unique childhood in small town Bombo, to her stripper university days, meeting the love of her life and bringing her son into the world, Amelia lays all her cards on the table and leaves no stone unturned. And what a show this makes. I cry laughed (yes, there was bladder leakage) and got teary, I gasped at her honesty, I was gobsmacked at her life […]
