Fit Flop – the flops that make you fit!

Morgan here, In July this year I was fortunate enough to undertake an internship with Polkadot PR in Sydney’s Surry Hills for six weeks. This opportunity gave me the chance to work with some seriously cool consumer brands, which we are passionate about here at Martini Monday’s – Delorenzo, Maison Blanche Candles & FitFlop, being our favourite, and we’re not the only ones that think so. Celebrities, Julianne Moore, Alyssa Milano and Brooke Shields are also big fans of the comfy sandals and have been seen showcasing their favourite designs on the streets of Hollywood.

FitFlop, developed by biomechanists, design super comfy shoes & sandals featuring exciting new styles in gorgeous, fresh colours for spring. From the sporty design to the inspired chic-toe thong, this range has everyone covered.

Lovers of the fun brand will enjoy a great selection of styles including; Flora, Kys Leather, Yoko and Lulu Canvas.  The new range has also introduced new textures of beads, sparkles and embellished swathes of leather and canvas.

Their extraordinary comfort not only helps to absorb shock, but also diffuse underfoot pressure, by instantly increasing the contact area of the foot to the mid sole, to ensure maximum comfort. Fashion Blogger and good friend, Jemma Mrdak who I met while interning at Polkadot PR, models the range, showcasing the Superjelly in White and the Kys in Black and Red Leather.

Behind The Scenes at Pacha

Move over Ibiza, Saturday 23rd August, Sydney was the place to be. Ministry of Sound hosted their biggest event of the year, Pacha at Ivy Nightclub.

Normally a jam packed night in itself, this particular night was their biggest night of the year with two huge headliners, EDM (Electronic Dance Music) DJs and producers Tigerlily and Will Sparks.

On an average Saturday night Pacha gets packed at 10.30/11pm.  Tonight, it resembled a sea of people at 9.30pm. It’s no wonder there was no sign of street parking anywhere!

Ash Street EntrancePeople congregated along the Ash St entrance where you pay entrance fee and have the opportunity to walk Pacha’s people red carpet and feel like a superstar with the Pacha backdrop for photo opportunities.

There are four rooms and two buildings.

  • The main room – featuring a main production stage for Headliner acts, with dancers, acrobats, bright lights, lasers.
  • Level 2 – for the VIP balconies for the best view of the main stage. It costs a minimum of $6k, including VIP balcony hire and a minimum $2.5k spend.
  • The Pool Room – with deep house, lounge music. Where in summer you can swim, and hear the music under water
  • The Change Room – located underneath The Pool Room, playing the best of Hip Hop & RnB

On this particular night, I was fortunate enough to have some VIP privileges along with Redfoo and the Party Rock aka La Freak Crew.  The VIP hostess greeted us on Ash street. After providing us with special wrist bands, we were escorted up the lifts to the VIP balcony.  The area roped of a section including a plush red couch, with white French provincial style seats on either side, and a table lined up with alochol served by our VIP waitress dressed in red and black hooded theme.

I have to say, the view was amazing.  You could over look the balcony to get a better view, feel and vibe of the main stage and the crowd chanting. Even though we were situated on Level 2, you could still feel the bass blasting and drumming on your chest.

not sure if you can see us, we were on the middle balcony!

Floor to ceiling white plantation blinds had been slided over, to reveal a side glass panel to get a full view of the main stage arena.  If I felt my heels were too much to bare, I could sit on a side seat and enjoy the performance and crowd chanting while sitting down.

Stage left of the main production stage, was the DJ Booth.  This turns into the “green room” for the Headliner DJ’s and the promoters to chill out with friends before and after their set.  It’s here that I get to meet the beautiful turquoise hair Tigerlily after her awesome performance!

Overall this was a fantastic night, filled with good vibes, energy and entertainment. It was more of a Redbull and Vodka occasion than Martini cocktail event, but who are we to discriminate?

Coogee and Corona’s

Last Tuesday, we teamed up with fashion & food Blogger, Kim Parslow (@sweetmondays, check out her blog for great styling tips www.sweetmondays.co.uk) for a fun filled day in Sydney. Starting off in Coogee, where we visited the Coogee Pavilion for the first time.

After hearing countless great reviews about the new attaraction we thought we would try it out for ourselves.  Nothing short of an average lunch destination, Coogee Pavilion is your one stop shop, offering a range of different lunch bars from a seafood, pizza and sushi bar, where you can pick and chose what you would like, to a fully equipped kitchen. The Pavilion is completely beach themed, from the furniture, to the structure of the bar and everything in between adding an extra touch to the ‘beach’ experience.

We were surprised at how busy it was, being a Tuesday afternoon, we struggled to find a seat. We sat to the front of the bar on a high cork table and decided to try one of their delicious pizza’s along with their beer battered onion rings and oven roasted potatoes, with chilli aoli,and seeing as it was #TreatTuesday we thought we would indulge in a carona. Their delicious menu made it hard to decide which one to go with! We went with margarita to compliemnt our side entrée’s which went perfectly with our corona’s.

Our pick of the day

After lunch we went for a nice stroll on the beach, it was a little windy but who are we to complain in the middle of winter! We finished off with a coffee at Coogee Caféand then headed back to the city, to enjoy an afternoon of shopping.
