Vincent on MasterChef

Last night in the Masterchef Immunity challenge, Vincent beat audience favourite Hayden Quinn in a nail biting finish. Vincent who is a classically trained Pastry chef was placed totally out of his comfort zone when asked to create the perfect Pork Roast.

“My life’s work has been Pastry and to be asked to participate in an Immunity Challenge cooking a meal was the biggest professional challenge i have faced to date. I loved the adrenalin rush and the MasterChef experience, however my passion will always be pastry” says Vincent

wedding hair

June 21st, 2011

Here comes the bride…

On the weekend I was helping my friend find the ‘perfect’ hairstyle for her wedding day, after hours of trawling through thousands of same old, same old we decided to take a look at the recent red carpet trends and came accross this delightful do by Miss Reece Witherspoon. Reece has the same kind of hair as my friend (short & blonde) and seeing as she’s going with a 1940’s style we thought this would be perfect. Down, natural and elegantly undone!

You only have to look at Kate Middleton’s hair at her ROYAL wedding to know that yes, ladies, Down is the new UP!

Kate chose to have very relaxed, soft ‘romantic’ curls with her hair down because she wanted to look like HERSELF and of course she wanted Wills to recognise her! Isn’t that what your wedding day should be about? Feeling comfortable in your own skin & of course looking like yourself not some overdone fake bridezilla! Just because it’s your wedding day you don’t have to wear your hair up.. dare to be different.

And if you’re getting married you should totally visit this up coming wedding market if you’re after something different and not mainstream then this is for you, the market sets itself apart from others by offering the bride non traditional creative wedding options that are not the bland mass market options you may find at the commercial wedding fairs.

The event is from August 13th- 14th at Byron Kennedy Hall, Moore Park
