EAST COAST FACES :  Michael Finch
It’s been a big week for Michael Finch.
The Brissy-based Aussie beauty blogger and YouTube star turned 21, went fishing and crabbing for the first time, and launched Bondi Sand’s new  tanning product Glo (more on that later!)
With over 600,000 subscribers to his YouTube makeup tutorials, Michael decided to move out of his comfort zone and try out some new things, asking his followers for suggestions The first in his new series is ‘Beauty Guru Tries… Fishing for the First Time’, and you'd better buckle in, ‘cos it’s a doozy!
You haven’t lived until you see Michael get fitted out at BCF in too-tight waders and a too-small hat, watched him stress that the camp chair will collapse under him before having a crack at crabbing with a slippery Red Rooster chicken as bait.
His language is pretty fruity but with most of the swearing muted (you’ll be laughing so hard you can barely hear it anyway) it’s easy to see a new generation of YouTubers discovering our newest national treasure venturing into the great outdoors.
With an admitted pathological fear of snakes (and being chased with prawn bait) get comfy and watch Michael’s big adventure, it’s hilarious - you can watch it HERE

Find out about our awesome Bondi Sands giveaway, Michael’s tanning tips and product details below -  then tune into Cocktail Hour tonight on Facebook for entry details - GOOD LUCK!!

HEAR :  The Chainsmokers – Side Effects ft. Emily Warren

it's 4AM, I don't know where to go / everywhere is closed / I should just go home, yeah / my feet are takin' me to your front door / I know I shouldn't though / heaven only knows / that ooh, the side effect to my loneliness is you
 Drew and Alex from The Chainsmokers love writing about millenial relationships, bad decisions, and living in the moment - but the duo decided after plenty of moody, low key tunes that they wanted to write a ‘Summery’ anthem.
Side Effects is still millenial – the story starts after the clubs close at 4am, but it’s an upbeat dancefloor number with summery anthem vibes, and vocals from regular collaborator Emily Warren.

You can hear it on our East Coast Spotify playlist right HERE...

WEAR : Fresh crop

Time to think about doing some serious crunches because the crop top - high waist combo is bigger than Texas this season - so it's all about the slice! 
Gold Coast Instagram ‘It’ girl Tammy Hembrow has a cool 8.5 million Insta followers and has just launched her own fitness range, Saski Collection. 
Not only did she design the collection but she models it too – there’s super retro shorty shorts and singlets in the ‘Track’ range, plus  high waisted leggings, crop tops, trackie dacks and more, so get crunching check out the range here...
TASTE : Brekky Bliss!

If you thought Otto’s Fresh Food Market had everything you'd ever need to satisfy your foodie cravings, you’d be right, because they’ve gone and joined the brekky brigade!
They’ve launched a brand new brekky menu with yummy delights like the Egg Floozy, and the Leghorn (pictured – it’s soft boiled eggs, sourdough soldiers, avocado, cream cheese and maple bacon bits – YUM!) plus their signature German Platter, an Italian Breakfast, plus vegan and vegetarian options, which you can enjoy from 6.30-10.30 daily – woohoo!

GO :  Ocean Awe

It’s whale migration season, and while you might have spotted these awesome creatures from the shore, what about from the water?
These gentle giants come north to our ocean waters to feed, mate and give birth before heading back down south with their calves.

Sealink  scheduled tours  Sunday mornings and afternoons until August 26, they sold out fast but you can be added to a waiting list – we’d love to see more chances to see this incredible spectacle aboard an awesome catamaran with commentary, morning tea and indoor and outdoor viewing areas, let’s see some extra tours put on – CLICK HERE!

MICHAEL FINCH tells us his tanning secrets:
Can you use self-tan to contour?
Yes! 100%! I tend to use the GLO (matte) on my face and use it as contour/foundation when I’m on the run and am in a rush!
It works a treat with a beauty blender and acts just like foundation.
Best tip for self-tanning?
How much is too much?
The limit does not exist!
What’s the best application method?
Exfoliate the DAY BEFORE so your pores have a chance to close up and don’t clog.
Apply tan/GLO the day after and make sure you use moisturiser on your elbows, knees and most importantly, your hands and fingers! Get in the little cracks and crevices!
What’s on your self-tanning session playlist?
Anything house! I like to listen to Cardi B when I’m tanning/ getting ready to go out!
