Rarotonga Adventure

Barry-Southgate-Rarotonga-Poster

I recently spent a week in Rarotonga with some of my best friends, to do a show and also celebrate my friend, Vince Harder’s, bucks week.

Having never been to Raro before, I had no idea what to expect at all.  Little did I know this trip would go down as one of the most incredible experiences I’ve ever had.

Huge thanks to all our sponsors for making it happen and for taking such good care of us.  Here’s some pics and a highlight video below, courtesy of Varo Media…

Our Rarotonga arrival had us greeted by some beautiful local people & cruising across the island aboard this party bus. You just knew the week ahead was about to be unforgettable.

Everything about the food, set-up & ambience epitomised "on point", but beyond that us boys had the best time celebrating with our brother.

Being a massive childhood fan of the franchise, I had so much fun attending the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles premiere at Fox Studios in Sydney recently.

Megan Fox, Will Arnett and the producers all came out for it too, there was definitely a buzz in the air!

VOGUE Fashion’s Night Out

10613077_10154558117825106_7695944505441985160_n

TONI & GUY got the party started for VOGUE Fashion’s Night Out in Sydney earlier this month.

A vintage, red London Double Decker Bus was set up in Martin Place – the lower level decked out like a salon where people got their hair styled and the top deck reserved for people to enjoy a complimentary Bondi Road spritzer.

As brand ambassador, I greeted people and took pics with them in the TONI & GUY photo booth.  The rain didn’t keep too many people away either!  It was a great night all round and had a lot of fun.  A few snaps from the night…

Eight Weeks Off Sugar

Barry Southgate I Quit Sugar

So I recently did the I Quit Sugar 8-Week Program.  Not gonna lie, it wasn’t easy.  But the benefits far outweighed the struggle.

Watch my video, where I talk about the experience and my overall thoughts on the white stuff.

Thanks for having me, Sarah Wilson.
