The 22-year-old style guru Tammy Hembrow is a wave of success when we think about our Instagram influencers, and to top it off she’s lighting a fire in the sport-lux fashion world with her own fitness clothing label due to release in the coming weeks.

Saski Collection is aimed to target female gym-junkies as well as lovers of sport-lux style. Sneak-peaks of the collection are released on Instagram every few days and fans can expect full-length tights, sports crop tops, and branded cropped hoodies in a colour pallet perfect for winter.

Ms Hembrow addressed the launch of Saski Collection in her latest YouTube vlog, Saski Office | vlog earlier this week, telling her loyal subscribers that the collection will be available soon.

“Saski is launching sooner than you think, so, get ready,” said Ms Hembrow.

The label is named after her only daughter, Saskia Rose, and has over 72.9k followers on Instragam after first launching on April 28.

The Instagammer rose to fame by documenting her ability to showcase the chaotic life of being a mum of two in a way that appears extremely stylish. Also showing her 6.7M Instagram followers that it is possible to stay fit and healthy after giving birth, twice.

Ms Hembrow is also a lead brand ambassador for American clothing brand Good Amercian, alongside the famous reality TV star Kholé Kardashian.

This collection is sure to raise the bar in the sport-lux world, so get your new Adidas sneakers ready girls, its about to go down.

Alternative anthem strikes alternative feelings

EDIT: This post was written for an Online Journalism assessment. The task time was 30 minutes.

Australian’s rejoice, we have progress! well… some progress.

If you don’t know what i’m talking about then I’ll briefly inform you that earlier this week an alternative version of our beloved (debatable) Australian national anthem was released.

Journalist at The Courier-Mail Renee Viellaris tells us that the Victorian Supreme Court judge Peter Vickery, via the Recognition in Anthem Projects, changed the second line in verse one, “for we are young and free” to “in peace and harmony”. Also adding 10 new lines to make a complete third verse that mentions Aboriginal dreamtime and respect for our country.

Last month, The Project TV program encouraged Twitter users to joke about the possible change when it was in speculation:

Meanwhile, I think majority of our political-journalist friends are, above all, joyful that the government decided against ‘Hey Ya‘ being the new national anthem.

To be honest, I think I would have preferred waking up to a headline stating that decision as I struggle to understand why it was released as an alternative over a hard-hitting updated version.

Is Australia afraid of change?

Personally, I think this expresses that the leaders of our country cannot accept our heritage and the people/culture that essentially built the foundations for Australia.

I’m also speaking with the multiple conversations in mind that I’ve had with people who travel to Europe (in particular) and come home enlightening me that Australia lacks history.

Our country has history and because it’s not in the form of mass murders and riots, are we choosing to ignore it?

I guess all we can really do is make a light-hearted joke out of this change and hope for a better tomorrow.

Thanks for reading,
