The new-look Northland Shopping Centre (East Preston Victoria) will deliver 15 hours of star-studded events on Wednesday 1st December between 9am-Midnight (World Aids Day) to celebrate the Shopping Centre’s revamp.Â The Stay All Day event is a celebration of fashion, food and fabulous offers, culminating in a performance by Australia\’s number one female DJ, Havana Brown.
DJ Havana Brown is touring the country to promote the release of the fifth installment of her successful compilation series Crave. Havana is the only female DJ to sign a major label recording deal in Australia with Crave Vol. 5 debuting at Number one on the ARIA urban chart and at Number three on the ARIA compilation chart.
We were lucky enough to ask Havana some quick questions on how she survives her hectic life:
Sassi: Touring around is very hectic and not as glamorous as it sounds, how do you stay looking so good while you’re touring around living out of a suitcase?
Havana: Drinking as much water as possible. Flying so much can make you feel dehydrated and tired. Water makes a world of difference.
Sassi: What are the must haves you pack in your suitcase when you’re on tour?
Havana: The must haves are items that cannot be purchased just anywhere. They tend to be my favourite party dresses and heels. I wish I could bring all my favourite shoes but weight restrictions make that difficult so I bring two pairs of heels, one black and one beige, that way I have heels to match any outfit.
Sassi: What five beauty products can’t you live without?
Havana: Make up face wipes; Paw Paw ointment; Mosturiser; Blush and my hair straightner.
Sassi: What’s been the most amazing destination you’ve played at so far?
Havana: My favourite city to play is Las Vegas. It\’s wild, crazy and free. Â Brings out the mischeivious Havana Brown..lol. So much fun!
Sassi: Do you have a favourite artist you’ve collaborated with? If so, who and why?
Havana: The Britney tour was amazing and something that I\’ll never forget. She is the biggest popstar in the world and to be part of her tour was an incredible experience.
Sassi: What do you do in your downtime for R&R?
Havana: Absolutely nothing! It doesn\’t happen very often but I do try to give myself a day off every now and then. I love to just lay around and catch up on sleep. I am years behind on sleep..lol
Sassi: What and where is your dream gig?
Havana: Janet Jackson tour! She is my absolute idol. Growing up, she was my inspiration.
Sassi: What’s your favourite place to travel to?
Havana: I love being home to tell you the truth. My ideal holiday would be at home with family and friends that I miss so much when I\’m away. Â Just no where near a plane or airport.. lol
