It’s a dream gig for the plus-sized beauty who has been modeling with Vivien’s for a year.
The Bachelor of Science graduate flew to New York last week for the star-studded launch
party where she met the superstar designer and a swag of Fenty models from across the globe. “It was such a surreal moment for me,” Peters, 21, said. “It was like meeting my best friend, she’s so sweet and such an amazing business woman — I had the time of my life.” Rihanna’s Savage x Fenty line sends a strong inclusive message, representing 36 different sizes ranging from XS to 3XL and eight different shades of nude. “Fenty is known for their diverse campaigns and including women from all walks of life, from all types of cultural backgrounds,” said Peters, who graduated from the University of WA with a double major in psychology. “Fenty Beauty alone was revolutionary to the beauty industry and really emphasized the importance of representation in advertising. “It was no different with Savage x Fenty. I met so many beautiful women who looked so unique and had different stories to tell — women who were unapologetically themselves and whose beauty was cemented in their ability to confidently assert themselves in an industry dominated by Eurocentric beauty standards.”

Worth a Watch: Avengers Infinity War

The Avengers Infinity Wars has made a splash to Box Office Record on its opening Avengers infinity warweekend, 630 million gross not including the Chinese market. The Infinity Wars movie is the finale in the saga, a cliffhanger ending Fans of the franchise will have to wait for the finale.
The film brings back the Avengers team for a final confrontation with Thanos in his quest for ultimate power. What makes the film work so well Is how it sets up its characters motivations. Even the penultimate Villain Thanos, has an emotive character arc. You can see that he is wrong in his goals but he does is sincere in his reason for doing the things he does. From his point of view, he is justified. This is more than the classic comic book villain who is evil for evil’s sake.
I found myself looking analyzing the characters. Why they doing everything, the reasons they act and I’ve found they act with purpose. It is not a series of events that they are reacting too, but they understand the weight of the impending danger and try to prepare the best they can.
These characters which normally super find themselves outmatched and overpowered in what feels like genuine suspense. Many people are eagerly awaiting the conclusion to the movie as it will be a challenge for our heroes to overcome.


Worth a Watch: Tully

Charlize Theron plays a mother overcome with the pressures of motherhood, in this honest film that tells an unexpected story of mental illness. After giving the gift of life to her youngest daughter Mia, it seems that the life has then been drained from our protagonist. After hiring a ‘night nanny’ named Tully, life seems to improve for everyone in the film.

‘Tully’ isn’t a film that displays the glamourized look on pregnancy that many movies too. It focuses on the truthful reality that motherhood is a stressful, overwhelming part of life. Charlize Theron’s acting is terrific as she completely nails her role in another Jason Reitman and Diablo Cody film.

All in all, Tully is a well written, well-acted movie that is worth the watch. After seeing the surprise ending, it may be worth while watching again with the knowledge of what happens.

Dog’s really becoming a man’s best friend!

He might have had the duties of a Best Man but he wasn’t really a good boy. Basil had one job — to walk down the aisle and deliver the rings but instead he went walkies through the crowd. Still, it’s hard to remember what to do at a wedding when you’re nine years old — and a dachshund.

It’s all part of a modern wedding trend that now has its own Instagram hashtag #dogwedding, where canine companions perform the duties of best men, flower girls and ring bearers.

Belle and Matt Hurley were happy to let Basil steal their big moment. “Basil was Matt’s 21st birthday present so it would have been weird for him not to be there, but he didn’t behave, it was very funny,” Mrs Hurley told The Sunday Telegraph.

“When the celebrant announced him as our ring bearer he had to say hello to everyone first.” Wedding celebrant Heidi Robertson from Byron Bay said it was a fun trend.

“I recently did one at a beach where the pug, Wiggy was the ring bearer. I know as a dog owner myself that dogs are just part of the family, the dog is the furry child and people want them to be involved,” she said.

Brothers Found after 21 hours lost at sea

Two young brothers have been found after spending 21 hours lost at sea off the Ningaloo coast.

Screen Shot 2018-04-25 at 8.19.10 PM

The brothers, aged 12 and 18, left South Lefroy Bay for a fishing trip at 4pm yesterday on a three-metre inflatable zodiac.

They allegedly intended on travelling inside the reef towards Norwegian Bay but did not return by 6pm, when they were due back.

An alarm was then raised at 7pm after the brothers still hadn’t returned.

However, a search helicopter found the pair at 12:45pm today 30km off shore from where they had gone fishing. Six volunteer marine rescue and government boats plus twelve recreational vessels were also involved in the massive search. Police claim

According to police, the brothers ran out of fuel as their six-horsepower motor only contained three litres.

After being located, the two brothers were flown to Exmouth for assessment. Luckily they were only found to be dehydrated and in otherwise fine health. They have been reunited with their family.
