- The Ultimate Guide to Black Friday deals

Thanks to our friends at MyDiscountDeals, we’ve got the inside scoop on the best bargains from top Australian retailers. For the fashion obsessed and the keen gym goers, there are some amazing deals that will have you rushing to splash your cash. We can also answer all your burning buying questions, like whether it’s cheaper to shop online or in store and whether it’s cheaper to buy Australian.

Despite starting out in the US, Black Friday and Cyber Monday have recently swept the world with their incredible retail discounts. Australia has embraced the shopping phenomenon with most major retailers now jumping on the sales bandwagon. This year, Black Friday falls on November 25th, with Cyber Monday following closely afterwards on November 28th.

With Christmas just around the corner and all the New Years parties following soon after, this is your opportunity to buy big and spend little. So get ready to take note of the retailers with the biggest deals and our tips for making the most of the bargains.

Fabulously Fashionable

With all the parties and occasions that the holiday brings, we’ve focused on the savings available for party wear, including boots/shoes, the little black dress, a glitzy clutch and a watch. David Jones and Myer are both offering generous discounts on all the aforementioned, and if you’re willing to spend big, you can even find Stuart Weitzman boots at 50% off. Other impressive deals include Marc Jacobs watches (down to $227 from $379.00), 25% off the Country Road Tess Soft Clutch and 30% off the classic Tigerlily Tapati Dress.

As you would expect, plenty of online retailers are getting involved in the action too and online is where you’ll find the massive deals. ASOS is slashing almost 70% off certain items, like the Forever Unique Silvia Bandage Dress (was $766, now $245), and Boohoo.com is taking 30% off all of their stock for the whole Black Friday holiday. That’s only a little of what’s on offer!

The detailed findings confirm that online is cheaper than in store, and that, even with postage, Australian retailers have the best discounts.

Verdicts: David Jones, Myer, ASOS and Boohoo the places to go for a bargain on Black Friday. Also, online is cheaper and Australia has the best deals.

Gym Junkies

As a nation, we’re very fitness oriented so it’s no surprise that retailers are discounting our favourite gym wear to get us spending that cash. From an in-store perspective, David Jones and Myer are again leading the way, with modest discounts on virtually all sporting goods. Arguably the best deals are in the footwear department, where Sketchers Flex Appeal shoes have been discounted from $119.95 to $69.00 at Myer, while David Jones are also offering discounts on Sketchers Sketch-Air Infinity Sneakers (down to $89.00 from $129.95).

Online, you can grab Vans Old School Suede trainers from Surfstitch for 40% off and 40% off FRENDS Taylor Gunmetal headphones. You can also feel like a Queen in a pair Beyoncé’s Ivy Park shorts for 50% off at The Iconic, which is the ultimate motivation. The US store Urban Outfitters, meanwhile, are offering 54% off Adidas Original 70s inspired shorts, now retailing at $27.12. They’re not going to give you a Beyoncé booty but they’re cheap and cool.

The detailed findings again confirm that it’s cheaper to shop online, and Australian retailers still have the best deals. For latecomers to the Black Friday party, we’ve sure gotten right into the spirit!

Verdicts: Once again, Myer and David Jones are leading the pack in discounts, but Surfstich, The Iconic and US owned Urban Outfitters are all offering hefty discounts on gym gear. Online is your best bet to save money while spending, and Australian deals are the cheapest.

 

So that’s your rundown of the best places to shop this Black Friday and Cyber Monday to get the best deals and look your best for the holidays. If you want this kind of information for all of your shopping, head over to MyDiscountDeals.com to make sure you always get the best bargains. Happy shopping!

- Absolutely Fabulous Fashion Lessons

Christmas is coming, and so is the onslaught of holiday parties where you have to look your best. If you’re worried about how you’re going to look your best and impress your friends and family throughout December, we’ve got you covered. Watching Absolutely Fabulous has practically made us fashion (victim) experts, so we know exactly what to do and what to avoid. Between Eddy’s extravagance and Patsy’s continuity, we’ve selected the best lessons to be learnt from Ab Fab so you can look absolutely fabulous.

Make sure your clothes fit

Whether you’re an Eddy in denial about the fact that you’re larger than you used to be, or a Saffy in denial that you’ve got a shape at all, Ab Fab can teach you. The lesson in the contrast of this mother/daughter pair is the importance of clothes that fit. Eddy often complains about her weight, but often it’s her choice of baggy or too-tight clothing that is unflattering. Saffy dresses in over-sized and outdated clothes that make her look frumpy and do nothing for her figure. Ab Fab is telling you to make sure it fits so you look your best!

Find your own style

You can be Patsy and stick to your signature style through your whole life, knowing that it suits you and flatters your figure. Or you can be Eddy, picking and choosing your style on the hottest trends you’ve seen in the magazines or the most expensive labels you can buy. Either one is a solid choice, as long as you stick to your guns and like your look.


Shoes

Patsy infamously said that “You can never have enough shoes” and that is a true motto of her Ab Fab character. Her shoes are always towering high and usually sharply stiletto, and always dress up her outfit. Patsy is a great lesson in party dressing, showing that shoes will always complete an outfit. You don’t always have to follow her advice on shoe height, but you’ll stand out at your Christmas parties if you do.


Make time for your hair

If Patsy’s consistent hairdo can teach you anything, it’s that your hair can define your look. A well-groomed hairstyle will make you look classy and elegant, even if your outfit isn’t totally on point. In the newly released Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie, Eddy gets her hair professionally done before parties, which is a tip to take down for the holidays. Even if you’re wearing the same old thing, a new hairdo will make you look fresh and give you confidence.

Confidence is everything

As Eddy has proved multiple times throughout Ab Fab, you can wear anything you want as long as you’ve got confidence. Sometimes she looks like she’s gotten dressed in the dark, but she and Patsy both know that they can pull anything off with the right amount of confidence. Eddy gets her confidence from the knowledge that she’s wearing expensive labels, but Patsy is the one to emulate.

Kylie Jenner and Zac Efron could be coming to Australia…together

- Kylie Jenner and Zac Efron could be coming to Australia…together

Two of the world’s biggest names right now could be heading down under…at the same time. Kylie Jenner and Zac Efron could be visiting our homeland, which is sure to send a lot of fans wild.

Kylie Jenner signed a huge deal with Puma last year and has been doing promotions for the company. Allegedly, the sports brand is also keen for Zac Efron to join her for some Aussie promotion sometime this year. Cheers Puma! Although Zac hasn’t signed with them yet, he has been spotted several times wearing the company’s clothes.

Excited to reveal my campaign for the @PUMA Fierce, a lightweight trainer with zero excuses, available starting 4/1 on PUMA.com, PUMA retail stores, and select retailers worldwide. The next level starts here #ForeverFierce #PumaAd

A photo posted by Kylie (@kyliejenner) on Mar 13, 2016 at 12:01pm PDT

Both stars have visited recently, with Kylie here in 2015 to promote her ‘Kendall Kylie’ line for Forever New. Zac was also here with co-star Adam Devine to promo their movie, ‘Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates’.

Zac and Kylie haven’t revealed anything, so for now just keep your fingers and toes crossed!

- Fans rejoice! Justin Bieber pop-up stores are here!

If you can’t wait for Justin Bieber to arrive on his ‘Purpose’ tour or you were unable to get tickets to his shows, then you can still get your Justin hit.

Justin has announced on his Twitter that there will be special pop-up stores appearing in Sydney and Melbourne selling a variety of merch from the Purpose tour for eager fans to grab.

There will be a range of merch available, including hoodies and shirts. We’ve seen a few samples on the Sneakerboy Instagram, the sellers of these fantastic Bieber-themed goods.

The stores will be in Melbourne from 10-12 March at 1/265 Little Bourke Street and in Sydney from 15-17 March at 3 Temperance Lane.

This announcement comes on the back of a very successful Bieber concert in Perth, where he performed to a sold out crowd.

His current visit is far more successful than his highly controversial visit during his 2013 Believe tour. Thankfully there has been no sighting of Justin making graffiti this time, and we hope it stays that way.

- Hillary Clinton’s nephew is an extremely hot model

In the wake of the US election, the Clinton name has been very prominent in the news. However, there’s a member of the Clinton family who you may not know but definitely should.

22-year-old Tyler Clinton, nephew of Bill and Hillary Clinton, proves that good genes run this family. Tyler is not only smart, sophisticated, and sporty but also ridiculously attractive!

Excited GIF - Find  Share on GIPHY

The Loyola Marymount University graduate grew up in southern California, where he played lacrosse. Of course former president Bill Clinton gave the commencement address at his nephew’s graduation!

Tyler’s relationship to his uncle Bill seems to be very close, as Tyler’s Instagram shows the two arm in arm in Chappaqua, New York having a “boys day”.

There’s one thing that Tyler does better than the former US president and that’s looking good.

Actually Tyler is so hot, that he just landed a modelling contract with the coveted agency IMG. The modelling agency represents supermodels like the Hadid sisters, Ashley Graham, Taylor Hill and Amber Valleta, so he’s in good company.

The exciting news were announced via Twitter on Tuesday and since then people (including us of course) are totally freaking out about the hottie.

Tyler’s Instagram features a range of awesome modelling pictures and he recently updated his Instagram bio from living in L.A. to moving to New York, “LA – NYC,” his profile says. Seeing sexy pictures like these don’t only cause hyperventilation, but also guarantee a really successful career.

THANK YOU @imgmodels for the incredible representation !!! Looking forward to much more work together ✨ #IMGstars

- Lily-Rose Depp looks just like her mother

In case you’ve been living under a rock, 17-year-old Lily-Rose Depp is the daughter of Johnny Depp and his ex-partner Vanessa Paradis. She’s been largely kept out of the spotlight for her young life, but she’s back in the public eye in a big way.

She’s grown up into a beautiful and talented young woman who is already following into her famous’ parents footsteps by modelling and acting.

We’re certainly not surprised that she’s becoming so famous when she is the doppelgänger of her beautiful French mother.

A post shared by Lily-Rose Depp (@lilyrose_depp) on Mar 8, 2017 at 9:03am PST

 

The teenager showcased her likeness to a young Vanessa, who is now 44, in a Snapchat which shows a picture of her next to one of her mother when she was about the same age. You can barely tell them apart!

The duo of Chanel It girls also stood in front of the camera together for the magazine Our City of Angels, for a photoshoot with David Mushegain.

It’s touching to see how close Lily-Rose and her mother are, as she shared a picture of “her favourite person in the world”.

My favorite person in the world ma maman❤ love your mommies/women in your life today and every day

A post shared by Lily-Rose Depp (@lilyrose_depp) on Mar 8, 2017 at 8:57am PST

 

Lily-Rose is following her mother into high-fashion, and her modelling career is skyrocketing. She has already been on the catwalk for Chanel at Paris Fashion Week, where she turned heads in the highly coveted grand finale dress of Karl Lagerfeld’s creation. Lagerfeld himself selected the young model to present this special dress, which is an incredible honour.

Merci Karl?

Lily-Rose has also followed her father’s footsteps and worked on her acting career. In 2014 she started with a cameo role in the movie “Tusk”, which was written specifically for her by American filmmaker Kevin Smith. Smith is the father of Lily-Rose’s good friend Harley Quinn Smith, who she met in kindergarten. In 2016 the two girls co-stared in together in a spin-off version of Tusk, called “Yoga Hosers”.

We’re expecting big things from this stunning starlet in the future. Her parents can be very proud of their already very successful daughter!
