hey tgs!

Here’s a short list of things that make me feel a LOT of happiness (in no particular order): Pomeranian sightings; chilli flavoured chips; ridiculous running jokes with my friends; when my food arrives at cafes; digging around op shops; choosing a gelato flavour, walking all around my city; pointing at bright stars at night; opening mail (including from you, TGs!); and when the three-legged kitty who lives next door visits me and looks at me with his squinchy little face. It’s important to know what makes you happy and to go and seek out those things. This is the Get Happy issue, we hope it makes you smile. XO Claire and Team TG…

STAFF SPOTLIGHT: INTERN REBEKAH What’s it like working at TG mag? An absolute dream! Reading Total Girl as a kid, I never expected to have this opportunity or to be in the position I am in today. Working here has been so much fun so far, from listening to interviews with stars like Sammi J, to researching cool celebs to building LEGO Friends sets. What is your fave task so far? I’m a massive Star Wars fan, so it was definitely compiling Daisy Ridley’s Celeb Faves in the October issue! If you could be any mythical animal, what would it be? A flying pug, so I can travel and be cute at the same time. Do you have any pets? Yes! I have a fawn pug called Pogi, which means handsome in Filipino. Do you have a message…

Billed bandit I was at a hotel with my friend and we went across the street to get some hot chips. As we walked over to the beach, a pelican pooped on my friend’s head and then STOLE ALL the hot chips!!! OMG! Annie Got an embarro story to share? Email totalgirl@nextmedia.com.au with ’ the subject line ‘Totally Embarrassing . My mind… blanked I was doing karaoke with my friends. I started singing ‘Blank Space’ by Taylor Swift and I sang the line, “They’ll make you breakfast,” really loud and everybody started laughing at me! I had no idea why. Later, someone walked up to me and said the line is actually, “It’ll leave you breathless”. I turned bright red. OMTG, I’ll never get over how embarrassed I was! Kate He’s having a ball! I was at a…

DYEING TO TRY THIS Swirly, twirly, pretty colours will be spreading all over your outfi tsand other textiles in the warmer months. As always, we love a DIYapproach – why not source a plain white tee and go crazy with rubberbands and diff erent colours? A big dose of colour will defs make yousmile (and your parents – if you use gloves, an apron and the sink). LET IT GROW, LET IT GROW… Hey, did you know indoor plants can boost concentration, productivity and your mood? It’s true – they’re not just ~aesthetic~ and super adorbs, you know. We like ones with a cutesy twist such as an animal theme. No green thumb? Artificial is OK but we’re less sure they boost happiness levels (though they might if constantly killing your plants is…
