Getting to Know The Vamps, The Tide... And Me!

by Jess | Feb 19, 2016

Hey guys!


Sorry I haven’t posted in awhile, it’s been busy, busy, busy here (but so much fun as always!)


Have you guys picked up the latest TG yet? If you haven’t, be sure to coz there’s an awesome article on toy reviews that I did. It was SO much fun coz my best friend’s sister (and TG reader) Kiki got to come in and help me review a bunch of awesome toys – we had SUCH a blast! Best job ever, right?!


Other than that, I’ve been running around doing interviews as always – this time I spoke to the boys from The Vamps and The Tide while they were touring; they were all so cool! Check out these pics I got with them…

A couple of you wanted to know a bit about me – so I present you with everything you need to know about your fave entertainment writer (LOL jks… but srsly)!


What is your middle name?: Martine – it’s French, and my dad’s name is Martin!

What was favourite subject at school?: Drama!

What is your favourite drink?: Sparkling mineral water – yum.

What is your favourite song at the moment?: I’m still obsessed with ‘Bad Blood’ by Taylor Swift! 

What is your favourite food?: That’s a tough one! I LOVE Japanese food – so maybe sashimi.

What is the last thing you bought?: Chicken Schnitzel from the café downstairs, and it was delish.

Favourite Colour?: Blue

Do you have any pets?: 3 dogs named Sampson, Maisie and Rocky.

Favourite Holiday?: When I was first at uni, I went on a one month exchange to France – it was so much fun!

Do you speak any other language?: A teensy bit of French, Italian and Spanish.

How many siblings do you have?: I have two younger brothers called Jake and Kelly.

Favourite restaurant?: Papi Chulo’s in Manly (their steak brisket is AH-MAZING!)

When was the last time you cried?: Yesterday from laughter when Mal, one of TG’s designers, emailed me a funny video!

Favourite Movie?: The Wizard of Oz (when I was little I wanted to be Dorothy!)

Favourite animal: Dogs! I love all dogs!

Favourite sport: I used to be a cheerleader – so I’ll have to say that! I love to watch the surfing, too.


Whew! Hopefully that answered a couple of your questions – please feel free to ask my more, I’m always happy to answer stuff for you guys :)


Oh – and some of you wanted an update on Sammy, Maisie and Rocky – well my dad sent me this pic today, how adorbs are they?!


I can’t wait to go home and hug them! Also, here’s a picture of Maisie and I (I don’t think she was very interested in getting a selfie LOL.)

    Hey Anonymous! My fave singer right now is prob Taylor, my fave place in France was Paris and Strasbourg (it was snowing in Strasbourg and was super pretty!), and my favourite breed of dogs - hmmm, that's hard! I love all dogs, but probs any large breeds are my favourite (only coz I'm biased coz I have three big dogs!)

    Today I went to Harbor Town, Dreamworld, and White Water World! SO. MUCH. FUN!! I got some cool surf clothes at Beach City (I got a super cute swimsuit with 2 swans making a heart shape, and an aussie shirt) totes adorbs! My mum said we'll prons be going to White Water World and Dreamworld again on Monday, and she'll pay for me to go on the Flowrider! I find that amazing, because i've ALWAYS wanted to surf, 1st step!
