Girlfriend Australia

Girlfriend Australia Autumn 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.

Anyone who knows me knows I am obsessed with Harold’s music – my Spotify “top songs of 2019” was basically just “Carolina” on repeat. So it was a no-brainer to put this sweet boy on our autumn cover as we not-so-patiently wait for him to bring his Love On Tour to Australia. But it’s not just his music that…

KEEP IT QUEEN(ER) Our Dep Ed Emma was lucky enough to join the lovely Laura Henshaw and Steph Claire Smith to celebrate the launch of the wellness hub on their Keep It Cleaner app. At an epic mansion in Sydney, they were treated to a speedy HIIT workout, confidence-boosting meditation and a healthy brekkie. Seriously, why can’t every morning start like that? Oh, and in case you were wondering: yes, the girls are just as angelic IRL as they seem on Instagram. THE GIRL TO WATCH Speaking of things (or rather, people!) that shine, another highlight of making this issue was meeting the amazing Lara D at our beauty shoot. What a powerhouse! She may be only 17 years old, but the singer/songwriter has already appeared on The Voice, released four singles and…
