GP In Conversation With Jessica Mauboy
In this episode of Gritty Pretty Radio, Eleanor Pendleton (founder & editor-in-chief) and Danielle Gay (beauty director & executive editor) chat with the cover star of Gritty Pretty Magazine's December 2021 issue... Indigenous singer and songwriter, Jessica Mauboy! Singing her way onto our screens back in 2006 on the fourth season of Australian Idol, Jessica was named runner up and secured a recording contract, releasing her debut album, The Journey, the following year. The rest, as they say, is history! A proud Kuku Yalanji and Wakaman woman, Jessica has done it all. Releasing the hit singles Running Back and Burn in 2008, which went ARIA platinum, being part of girl group Young Divas and even trying her hand at acting, she is a bonafide triple threat. But now, Jessica is starting a new chapter in her musical career and her personal life. Now in her 30s and engaged to her long-term partner, Jessica opens up in this episode about how she's discovered more about herself, her new single, Glow, and the pinch-me moment of becoming a L'Oreal Paris ambassador.

GP In Conversation With Lottie Dalziel
There are few issues as important as the climate crisis. To ensure our planet is preserved and looked after for future generations, there is an urgent need for all of us to try to consume less, recycle more and educate others on how they, too, can do their part. With the beauty industry one of the largest contributors to landfill in the world, we, here at Gritty Pretty, know how important it is to get expert advice on this issue. In this episode, we introduce you to our newly appointed sustainability editor, Lottie Dalziel. As the founder of Banish, a digital educational forum for people looking to learn more about how they can do their part to protect the environment, Lottie's passion for sustainability is admirable. In today's episode we chat to Lottie about the challenges she faced as a young entrepreneur, the beauty ingredients everyone should be avoiding and, because she's the newest member of the Gritty Pretty team, her budget and bougie products of the week.
GP In Conversation With Arabella Preston
In this episode of Gritty Pretty Radio, Danielle Gay (beauty director & executive editor) and Rose Garnett (beauty writer) sit down with the founder of skincare brand Votary, Arabella Preston. Launching her brand in 2015, the Londoner's products were born out of her own kitchen, where she would concoct mixtures of essential and plant oils to create the nourishing products she couldn't seem to find anywhere else. Six years on and Votary is renowned for its luxurious, vegan formulas that come housed in sustainable packaging. From taking the leap of faith to start her own business to the importance of sustainability and the makeup tips (and products) she thinks everyone should know about, the trio chatted about everything and anything during this episode.

As one half of the duo behind the sunscreen brand that changed the game forever, Matthews knows a thing or two about capitalising on a gap in the market. Bursting onto the beauty scene in 2019, her brand has not only created cult products but has also started a much needed conversation about the importance of sun protection. From going into business with her boss to disrupting the skincare space and the value of personal challenges in building resilience, nothing was off limits during their chat.
GP In Conversation With Pippa Hallas
In this episode of Gritty Pretty Radio, Eleanor Pendleton (founder & editor-in-chief) and Rose Garnett (beauty writer) sit down with the CEO of Ella Baché, Pippa Hallas. Heading up the iconic skincare brand that was started in 1936 by her grandmother, Pippa is now at the helm of one of the most iconic, efficacious and beautiful skincare brands in the world. Renowned for her tenacity, dedication and enviable ability to take risks, the duo couldn’t wait to quiz Pippa about her business knack and commitment to innovation. From navigating a family business to the beauty products she cannot live without and her love of the ocean, nothing was off limits during their chat.
