Australia Day Cocktail

If you’ve been on Instagram at all over the last few months, you’ll know that an Aperol Spritz has swiftly become the drink of the summer. Nothing beats a bit of citrus in summer, and although these aperitifs look fancy, they’re SO easy to make:

All you need:

  • 3 parts Prosecco
  • 2 parts Aperol
  • 1 part soda

Pour over ice, swirl and garnish with some fresh orange.
We couldn’t think of a better pool party beverage!


It can be easy to forget about sun protection when you’re having such a fun day, so make sure you’ve got a few big bottles of sunscreen around the pool and BBQ area so as soon as you spot one, you’ll remember to top up your SPF protection. Don’t forget- sunscreen needs to be reapplied especially if you're a tad sweaty or swimming!

A Novelty Lilo

We love a good pool-ready inflatable (they make for the perfect Insta photos!) and we can’t go past SunnyLife’s range for Australia Day. Founded on the coast of Sydney, SunnyLife is a quintessential Australian brand dedicated to making your time in the pool or on the beach as fun and safe as possible- it doesn’t get more Aussie than that! 


You know you need to keep topping up that sun protection, but you still want to get a deep, even, natural tan - enter Melanoboost. Our Peptide Sun Tanning Oil will allow you to achieve a deep tan in next to no time. That means less time sun baking (and less harmful UV exposure) and more time having fun!

Another shrimp on the barbie!

Maybe not a shrimp, but make sure you have the BBQ fired up this Australia day to soak up those Aperol spritzes. What’s on our menu? Snags, ribs, and a few veggie burgers for good measure!

Party Tunes

Australia Day celebrations are complete without the iconic Triple J’s Hottest 100. Sit back, turn the radio up and let the countdown take you on a musical journey of the past 12 months. If you haven’t already, head over to their website to vote and have your say on the best song of 2016! Ps. Go FLUME!
