Congratulations to Magnolia - The Face of Chadstone!

Magnolia ‘Maminydjama’ Maymuru who represented Northern Territory at Miss World Australia has been officially announced as the face of Chadstone's SS16 campaign. 

Magnolia is the first Aboriginal woman to represent NT at Miss World, and is said to be thrilled at the chance to pursue her dream in modelling at the young age of 19. 

With the announcement of the Chadstone campaign, it's a strong indication that Magnolia will be the next big thing in Australian modelling.

Our Favourite Top 5 Unique Mojito Recipes!


At number 1, this Ginger Beer Mojito recipe we found via and tastes absolutely delicious!

Ginger beer meets mint and lime and rum in this simple Ginger Beer Mojito.


  • 10 mint leaves
  • 2 ounces fresh lime juice

Muddle the mint together with the lime juice in a glass. Add a few large ice cubes, then pour in the rum and ginger beer. Finish the drink with additional garnishes, if desired.

(*I strained out the mint leaves that I used to muddle with the lime juice after the first step. Then added in a few extra fresh mint leaves along with the lime wedges as a garnish. Just a personal preference, but you can totally leave the original mint leaves in the drink if you'd like.)
