This week’s all about scoring you some free swag – from a cool Ibiza-inspired party at the highest bar in the ‘Kong, to a cosmopolitan tea for two. And if you’re yearning for something a bit different, there are Greek goodies at our second Foodie Fiesta too! It’s all here in our Weekender…
Lovers of jewellery, you’ll be pleased to note that one of our favourite jewellery boutiques, AME Gallery, has a special promotion this summer that you simply have to take advantage of. If you can’t get enough of their handcrafted, artisanal fine jewellery, then why not try your hand at making it yourself?! That’s right, with every purchase over $3,000 you will get a private jewellery making class at Pixelry Box for only $1,000 (the original price is $1,750… talk about a discount!). You’ll be able to craft your very own ring or pendant during two sessions that are 2.5 hours long each – not only will you learn a new skill, but you’ll also walk away with your own unique piece! And remember to check out Pixelry’s new collection at AME Gallery, ‘Cardillac’, which uses stunning pearls and silver to create one-of-a-kind engagement rings, wedding rings and cufflinks. Cardillac’s collection fits in beautifully with AME Gallery’s range of artisan jewellers from around the world… say hello to your new jewellery box girls!
Couldn’t quite make it to the parties on the sunny shores of Ibiza this summer? Well, you’re in luck, as the highest bar in the ‘Kong is hosting From Ibiza with Love as part of their summer party series. Slip on your sexiest dress and get ready to party the night away, Ibiza-style, at Ozone. French-Canadian DJ Fred Everything will be spinning electro and deep house tunes as you and the girls boogie the night away.

Pin a rosé on your nose
It’s the height of boat season (check out our junk trip guide here) and we’re taking any excuse to hit the waves. This weekend is your chance to sail out to sea, as HK-Aussie winemaker, wine judge and television personality, Eddie McDougall, or the The Flying Winemaker, is hosting Rosé Revolution 2014! This will be his fourth annual boat trip featuring free-flow rosé wine, raucous revellers, and scrumptious seafood. This year, there will be not one, but three boats heading out to Po Toi Seafood followed by afternoon activities and swimming. All accompanied by, you guessed it, rosé wine. Nothing says summer like a glass of that pink nectar!
Oh, and we’ve bagged an exclusive discount – $690 per ticket for all you Sassy readers. All aboard!
When: 19 July, registration is from 10am and boats depart at 10.30am. You’ll return to Central by 6pm.
