  • In Stereo Drop New Video for latest single 'Girlfriend'!

    by TG's Aaron | Jan 24, 2017
    Yo yo TGs!

    Yup, you totally read that correctly! Your fave Sydney trio has dropped a cool new music video to accompany their latest single ‘Girlfriend’. Filmed at Sydney's Luna Park and directed by Daniel Saboune (he also directed the band’s ‘Honest’ video), this clip suits the tune perfectly – fun times set to a funky jam. My fave part is the scene in front of the mirrors, very LOL worthy. It’s actually making me jealous that I’m indoors at TG HQ and not at Luna Park right now!

    In true In Stereo fashion ‘Girlfriend’ is such an uplifting song; the upbeat and catchy guitar line kind of reminds me of 5SOS, just a little :) It’s definitely worth your (very precious) time.



    I’d love to hear what you think about it in the comments below.

    Peace,

    Aaron

  • Hanging at the Lego show!

    by TG's Aaron | Jan 13, 2017

    Hey there TGs!

    I don't believe we've met yet - I'm Aaron and I'm new here at TG!

    I had a brick-tastic time visiting the Brickman: Wonders of The World exhibition in Darling Harbour. 

    If you’re a fan of LEGO, and I’m pretty sure you are, you will totally love this!

    Master builder, Ryan ’The Brickman’ McNaught’s builds have to be seen to believed – from the Leaning Tower of Pisa to super cute brick fish and coral, explore a whole world of super cray LEGO Masterpieces.

    On top of all that awesomeness, it’s fully interactive, with plenty of LEGO to DIY. 

    Brickman: Wonders of The World runs through to February 5 at ICC Sydney Exhibition Centre. Check out my video and see what all the fuss is about!

  • I need your help TGs!

    by Jessica Lynch | Aug 04, 2016

    Hey TGs!

    Hope you’ve all been well and had an amazing break from school!

    What did you get up to? Tell me ~aaallll~ about it below!

     OK – so I totes need your help.

     As you may or may not know, much like our beloved Katy Perry, I like to dye my hair a bunch of diff colours ALL. THE. TIME. I can’t help it!

    I see all these cool colours everywhere and I’m like ”OMTG! I MUST HAVE IT!”

     So right now, for the second time (after being inspired by hair colour queen Kylie Jenner), I have blue hair... Well… It’s kinda blue-green now coz it’s faded. And now I’m wondering if I should re-dye it blue – OR go pink... pastel pink!

     I haven’t gone pink before, but I think pastel pink is super pretty! It kinda reminds me of fairy floss you get at carnivals, don’t you think? I REALLY like this colour:

     

    So to give you an idea of what other colour hair I’ve had, check out below.

     

    So what do you guys think? Should I go pink? Stay blue? Go back to blonde? Or go a totes different colour?!

    I totes trust you guys, so let me know your thoughts below!


    Love always,
    Jess xx

  • All The Goss From The Radio Disney Awards

    by Jess | May 20, 2016
    Hey Tgs!
     
    Guess who’s back from LA?! Meeeeee! And I had the best time EVER!
     
    Firstly I wanna give a HUGE thank you to Disney Channel Australia for taking me on the most awesome once-in-a-lifetime experience half way across the world and bringing me on set to all my fave Disney shows and to the Radio Disney Music Awards (which I’ll tell you guys ALL about!)

    SEE ALSO: ALL THE 2016 RADIO DISNEY MUSIC AWARDS WINNERS 

    So let’s get to it!
     
    After a 13 hour flight (without much sleep cos I was soooo excited!) we landed in sunny Los Angeles and chilled out at our totally rad hotel to rest up for the day before we got to work.
     
    The first proper day we got there we headed in to Hollywood where we went to the set of Girl Meets World. I got to check out all the awesome sets like the school, the living room and lots more. Some of the actors were rehearsing, which was great to watch! I then sat down with the super cool Rowan Blanchard and interviewed her, followed by the bubbly Sabrina Carpenter. Both girls were SO lovely and SO awesome to talk to!

    Sabrina and I hanging out on set
     
    The next day we were back at it again – this time on set at Liv and Maddie!
    There I interviewed Joey Bragg (who was soooo funny!) and Dove Cameron (who was totally gorgeous and really lovely!) Later on, I got to take a bunch of photos of their set (the Mexican restaurant one was my fave – it looked totes real!)

    400IMG_6348
    The hilarious Joey Bragg!
     
    After we hung out wit the Liv and Maddie crew, we headed off to ANOTHER set lot – this time for KC Undercover! I was SO excited for this, cos I’m a HUGE fan of Zendaya! They were shooting the show for real when we got there, so we were lucky enough to watch them film a live scene (it was really funny!)
     
    After they finished the scene, I got to speak to Trinitee Stokes (who plays Judy) – I totes adored her, she was so sassy and cool!
     
    Then I spoke to Kamil McFadden (who lays Ernie), Veronica Dunne (who plays Marisa) then ZENDAYA HERSELF! They were all super cool, just like I thought they would be!

    400IMG_6392
    400IMG_6406
    Zendaya and Kamil were awesome.
     
    Finally it was the big day – the Radio Disney Music Awards!! We hit up the red carpet on a lovely sunny day and waited for the celebs. OMTG! There were soooo many! I got a bunch of photos with them – check it out for yourself!

    400IMG_6557

    Hey Flo Rida!
     
    400IMG_6559
    It’s Alessia Cara!
     
    We then went inside to watch the show – which was AMAZING! My fave part (which was soooo hard to choose) was probs when Ariana Grande sang! She has the best voice ever! 

    We also caught up with one of our fave Saturday Disney friends, Candice!!!



    Well I hope you enjoyed my stories, guys! This is, like, a super condensed version of it – if you wanna see more pics of me with celebs, behind the scenes at the RDMAs and super-secret on set photos of all your fave Disney shows, then be sure to pick up the August issue of Total Girl, where I’ll be including ALL THE THINGS!
     
    Hope you guys have been well!
     
    Love your pal Jess x

  • I Met Ross Lynch And R5!

    by Jess | Jan 27, 2016

    Hey buddies!

     

    I hope you’re all well! It’s been a little while since I’ve updated you on my shenanigans, so allow me to fill you in on aaaallll the things.

     

    I’m sure lots of you are fans of R5 right? 

    Well guess what…? 

     

    I got to go hang out with them while they were here in Sydney on tour! HOW COOL IS THAT?!

    And the best part was that they were all SOOOOO nice. Like, so lovely!

     

    I got to chat to them about what they’re getting up to while they’re in Australia and what their plans are for this year (spoiler alert: they all want to get a house and move in together, cute!) and we also made a super funny video where they had to give me five things that started with ‘R’ for a bunch of different subjects – it was pretty hilarious (Ross couldn’t think of many, LOL!). 

     

    I brought up the fact that my last name is ALSO Lynch, so basically, I should be the 6th member. They totally agreed (but I don’t know how useful I’d be… I can maybe play the triangle? Haha!)

     

    I also told Rocky how my Golden Retriever is also called Rocky Lynch – so he should feel proud to share a name with such a magnificent creature. He was pretty stoked!

     

    Rocky Lynch - who wore it better?

    Rocky Lynch & Rocky Lynch – who wore it better?

     

    Check out this pic I got with them, too. I could totally be a member of the band, right? Just the much shorter member I guess (they’re all really tall!).

      
    R5 and Jess

    It was an awesome day, and I’m so excited for you guys to read all the goss they told me it in the April issue of TG!

     

    Also, don’t forget to grab the March issue too, because I don’t want to give too much away, but I got to do a REALLY fun shoot with one lucky TG reader; we had sooo much fun!

     

    What have you guys been up to? Let me know in the comments!

     

    Laters friends,

  • Happy Holidays TGs!

    by Jess | Dec 16, 2015

    Hey guys!

     

    It’s your pal Jess here again!

     

    I hope you’ve all been awesome. It’s been super busy here in the TG office making another great issue for you guys to read!

     

    I love this time of year because alllllll the holidays are pretty close together – can you believe it’s almost Christmas already?! I swear the year went soooooo fast!

    Speaking of Christmas, what are you guys hoping to get?

    I really want to get some cool rings or a necklace – I love fun and weird looking jewellery! I also saw some really cool dog collars I want to get my three dogs – they get so spoiled at Christmas! Last year my parents got them each a Christmas stocking full of dog treats and they were so happy that they gobbled them down in like one minute!

     
    Jess and her dog

    I also love the holiday season coz I get to hang out with my dogs more often and get to do fun things with my friends, like go to the beach and hang out.

     

    What are you guys excited to do at the end of the year? It’s fun to think of all the cool things you can do with all that extra time!

     

    Speak soon friends!

  • Fun At The ARIAs!

    by Jess | Dec 07, 2015

    Well hello there, TGers!

     

    I hope you’re all having an amazing week so far (and are super excited coz it’s almost the holidays, YAY!)

     

    So I’ve had a really busy few weeks, (mostly creating a bunch of exciting entertainment stuff for you guys to read in the next issue of TG!) but recently I was lucky enough to attend the ARIA Awards alongside TG’s web guru, Erin!

     

    Even though it was a SUPER HOT DAY (38 degrees!!!) and actually felt like an oven, it was soooo worth it to chat with some awesome stars on the red carpet (and we even made a totes hilarious video for you guys to check out coming soon!)

     
    Jess and Erin at the ARIAs with Jai

    Probably my highlights of the day were when we spoke to Jai Waetford for ages while he ran around the red carpet filming with his cool fish-eye camera (he was so lovely!) Also when we got to have a chat with the super rad Tim Omaji, who was really funny!

     

    All in all it was a great day despite the sweltering sun, and I can’t wait to go again next year!

    Did you watch the ARIAs, TGs? What was your fave performance? Tell me in the comments below!

  • I went to Taylor Swift’s concert!

    by Maria | Dec 01, 2015

    Hi TGs!

     

    My name’s Maria and I’m the senior sub-editor for Total Girl – I’m making a special blog appearance because I had the awesome luck to go to Tay’s AMAZING concert in Sydney!!!


    Pam and Maria at Taylor Swift
     

    I was SO EXCITED before the big day! I got there early with my friend Pam (on the left) and we spent the whole build-up to the concert bopping along to the opening act Vance Joy and talking about all the things we love about Tay. When we walked into ANZ Stadium in Sydney we were given a wristband each that ended up lighting up at the same time as everyone else’s at the concert the whole way through. It was like magic!

     
    Taylor Swift concert

    Tay opened with “Welcome to New York” and everyone at the stadium knew they were in for a good time! She sang pretty much EVERY song from 1989, including my faves “Blank Space” and “All You Had To Do Was Stay”. She also threw it back and sang “I Knew You Were Trouble”, “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” and “Love Story”! Weeeeee!

     

    Her voice and dancing was PERFECT and her costumes were seriously so pretty – she even played guitar and keyboard for us. She talked a lot about how much she loved all her fans and important lessons on loving yourself and not letting other people put you down! She also played clips on the big screens of people like Selena Gomez and Haim talking about their friendship with her. She even put up clips of her cats Olivia and Meredith which was like, my fave part! LOL!

     

    Tay ended the show with “Shake It Off” and EVERYONE was dancing. I can confidently say all 76,000 of us had THE BEST NIGHT OF OUR LIVES!



    Taylor Swift stadium

     

    Did you go to the concert? What was your fave bit? Let me know in the comments below!

     

    Lots of love, Maria. x
