Girlfriend Australia

Girlfriend Australia Summer 2020

Girlfriend is Australia's best teen girls magazine. It is independent, smart, a little bit naughty and pretty damn cool. It is familiar, comfortable and trusted like a good friend but it also likes to shock you with its honesty, surprise you with its innovation, engage you with its quality and impress you with its creativity. Girlfriend is confident, fun, loud, and pretty. She's the leader, the trouble-maker, she tells it like it is, she's the one that can make anything happen. She's the kind of girl that everyone teenager wants to be.

the owner’s handbook to your boobs

Tatas, tits, bazookas, melons, ‘the girls’... there are about a bazillion different names for those two magnificent mounds on your chest. But whatever you call your breasts, we’re willing to bet you’ve got some mixed feelings about them. Because, yes, our boobs allow us to do cool stuff such as breastfeed babies, enhance our sexy times and catch corn chips that fall from our mouths (No? Just us?), but on the flipside, it’s easy to feel like they just get in the way – especially during school PE class or when we’re trying to wear a low-cut dress! Or maybe you feel like yours just aren’t quite big/small/perky/round enough, or that your nipples are a weird colour compared to others you’ve seen. But here’s the thing: ALL boobs are good boobs,…

The good news is, just because it doesn’t all add up doesn’t necessarily mean the zodiac is a pile of baloney. Turns out, the 12 star signs most of us know about are really only scratching the surface of astrology. Dive deeper into the world of astrology houses and you can uncover spookily accurate insights into what makes you tick. WTF are astrology houses?

Can you imagine playing – and making – video games for a living? It may sound like a nerd’s dream, or something just ‘for the boys’, but it’s a reality for Ally McLean.

She’s also the CEO of The Working Lunch social enterprise, dedicated to creating opportunity for under-represented genders in the games industry. Here, we sit down with the boss babe challenging everything we thought we knew about gamers. On where it all began “It’s hard to say where my love for video games came from exactly.

your summer glow guide

When we think of #summergoals, there’s one person who immediately springs to mind: Steph Claire Smith. The Keep It Cleaner co-founder, model and influencer is pretty much the epitome of a sunkissed Aussie beach babe. It’s rare to see Steph without her signature bronzed glow and as a Bondi Sands ambassador, she’s mastered the art of the flawless, sunsafe tan. That’s why we asked Steph to share her top tips for self-tanning and achieving a faux glow at home. BEFORE YOUR TAN PREPPING THE SKIN: “Exfoliate prior with a scrub that doesn’t leave you oily, shave the night before and make sure you don’t have any moisturiser on your body other than on those rough or dry patches like your elbows, knees and ankles!” PICKING THE RIGHT COLOUR: “There are so many different…
