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!



Durbs, you’re in for a treat this Friday. Cool Runnings is hosting one sweet street party with a rather epic lineup. If you’re already on that end-of-the-month budget, no strezzz, here’s how to score some free tickets.

Kick this summer off by taking in two of Cape Town’s freshest and finest new acts at Durban’s hidden gem, Cool RunningsThor Rixon and Diamond Thug are embarking on a nationwide tour that sees them stopping off for a street party in our humble little party town. Yup, a street party. If the weather plays ball we’ll be dancing under the stars, if not, we’ll pack out the inside and party all the same with HOURS , The Sisters and DJ Fuego Heat joining the Capetonians in making you dance. 

If like me, the names Thor Rixon and Diamond Thug initially mean nothing to you, then peep these vids. Hey look, I live under a rock most of the time but it only took about 3 minutes to get me utterly stoked on their individually unique sounds. I can totally imagine “dancing under the stars” while listening to their mellow vibes. 


Thor Rixon ft Inge Beckmann  – Misery Belle


Diamond Thug – What I Think Now

Pretty cool huh? 

To win a set of double tickets to this kick-ass event, simply comment and tell me what your biggest fear is. This is a safe space, share in on your secrets kids. Also, a little humour never hurt nobody.

PS: This is gonna seem like a very arb question if you haven’t watched the videos so go back and do your homework you delinquents!
