Get Lucky with Lucky Brand


Here’s how to get your own killer jeans…

Some of you may remember this post (click here) on my last pair of LB jeans. Needless to say, I basically live in them. Lucky Brand let me grab another pair so I tried on a few different styles and colours this time. Which ones are you feeling – The Charlie, The Brooke, The Charlie Super Skinny or The Lolita?


I chose the sweet grey Charlie skinny’s which will probably become a staple this winter.

Now dear readers, what’s cool is that not only are Lucky Brand offering you a 20% sale on accessories starting today, but they’ve also now got a range of jeans starting at R499. Hello shopping spree! They’re also starting live in-store music AKA “Lucky Sessions” so you can get down while checking out yo’ hot booty in dem jeans. (Their change rooms have some seriously flattering mirrors as a bonus.)

To celebrate, Lucky Brand and myself are giving away three pairs of jeans valued at R499! To enter, head to Facebook or the Twitter machine, follow @girlwithabum and @LuckyBrandSA and tell us which jeans you preferred and how you’d style them. You can tweet us or comment on the Facebook post as many times as ya like and you can also share the comp for extra entries. Click here for my Facebook and here for the Lucky Brand page. Winners announced 2 April.

Pst – these rad Lucky Brand offers are limited so head to their flagship store at the Pav and shop ‘em before they’re gone. They also have a range of shoes and accessories that you’ll dig.




Wanna hit up Splashy but aint got no cash money? No strezzz!

We got you.

Thanks to the good people over at Jose Cuervo, I’ve got a set of double tickets to give away for Splashy Fen 2015 – Y’know that music fest that runs over Easter Weekend, set in the breathtaking Underberg (the one with the rad rivers to play in all day?). Yeah you know the one.

To stand a chance at getting your hands on ‘em all you have to do is head to the Twitter Machine.

Make sure you’re following @girlwithabum and @JoseCuervoSa (obvi) and tell us in 140 characters or less how you’d start a #cuervolucion.

What, pray tell, is a Cuervolucion?

You know that moment when you’re having a relatively chilled jol and then next minute you’re running around starkers except for a stolen sombrero? That catalyst is the start of a Cuervolucion – whether it was those few extra shots of Jose or a dare to down your margarita. It’s that moment you really get too turnt and take it from vibe to “WTF EVEN HAPPENED LAST NIGHT?”

Needless to say, make sure to @ both myself and Mr Cuervo and use the #cuervolucion hashtag.  

Not on the Twitter machine? Comment on the Facebook post and give it a share or a like for extra brownie points. Click here.

The winner will be based on the epicness of their Tweet/comment and I will be getting help from JC to judge, so there are no extra points for how much I like you or I’d have to give tickets to all of you petals.

You can enter as many times as ya like and I will be announcing the lucky devil on Twitter and FB on Friday the 27th of March so get a-Tweeting or a-commenting!

Feeling Lucky?


I had the privilege of being invited to the Lucky Brand relaunch of their Denim Donation Drive.

I got to choose a pair of jeans in exchange for any pair of old denims and let me tell you, it was a very hard choice, rivalling the decision whether to cut a fringe or not, or what to order at my favourite restaurant. 

Normally jeans shopping is an absolute nightmare for me – I generally stay very far away from this traumatic experience. I have a smallish waist, big butt and short legs – jeans weren’t made for this booty without some serious tailoring. Yet, for the first time in the history of ever, every single pair I tried on was perfectly fitted, super luxe and comfy as hell. Now all of a sudden, the nightmare was choosing my favourite out of all the beautiful fits and washes.


In between wine sipping and grooving to the DJ, I finally settled on these ripped dark wash skinnies AKA The Charlie Skinny (Right). It was a close call between the light wash high-rise skinnies on the left!

If you want to get your hands on your own pair, all you have to do is bring in a pair of your old, lightly worn jeans (any brand!) and get 50% off a brand new pair of stunning denims.  

All denims collected will be donated to the SOS Children’s Villages. They run a project in Port Elizabeth whereby repurposed denims are sold for profit by women in the community, who are then able to support themselves through this awesome initiative.


I was helped by a strapping young lad named Reese who selected my perfect size after taking one look at me, despite my usual protests for a larger one. Brother had skillz. 

Support a good cause and get some rad new jeans pant – what’s not to love?
