Celebrate life’s Champagne moments

Sonia Styling + Lanson collaboration

Sonia Styling x Lanson

I’m a big believer in celebrating.

Celebrating the big stuff – a promotion at work, a milestone birthday, buying a house, an engagement or a wedding, overcoming an illness, the birth of a baby, or being brave enough to start your own business.

But also the not-so-big stuff – a deadline met, a great term at school for your child, a new client signed, a new haircut, hitting your goal weight, Offspring being back on TV, or a new PB at the gym.

And I make no secret of the fact that I believe a celebration is just not a celebration without two very important elements: a loved one and Champagne.

Which is why I’m super thrilled to be partnering with French Champagne House, Lanson, the perfect start to any celebration.

Family run, and one of the oldest existing Champagne Houses, Lanson has perfected its art over its 257-year history and has an impressive and diverse range of quality Champagnes to show for it.

Lanson also believes in celebrating life’s moments – big and small – and so they’ve very generously put together the most amazing prize pack for you and your loved one to enjoy together.

So why Lanson and Tina Arena?

This was the question I posed to Lanson and here’s what they had to say…

  • Lanson wines journey through time perfectly – just as Tina has in her career.
  • Longevity – Tina Arena has been in the spotlight producing music for over four decades and Lanson is a long-lasting brand with over two centuries of history.
  • Consistency – Tina Arena has consistently produced great music, as is every bottle of Lanson through their traditional crafting method.
  • Balance – Tina has sold just as many albums in France as she has in Australia. Similarly, by using a majority of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes, Lanson achieves the perfect balance of power and finesse.

    Wow! Awesome prize, you sure know how to celebrate! I would have to take my hubby if I were to win this fabulous prize since after 35 years of marriage he has shown longevity, he’s been consistently fabulous during this time and he’s the perfect balance of best friend , hot husband and cool dad. Pop them corks!

  2. Tamara Goslett says

    I would love to share this night out with my mum she’s always been a massive Tina Arena fan chains was always her favourite

  3. Julie Cornall says

    I would take my bestie of 36 years – what a way to celebrate the longevity of our friendship! We are both fans of Tina from her days on YTT, through to her current success and felt for her when she was robbed on Dancing with the Stars! A fantastic prize and a night we’d reminisce about for another 30+ years.

  4. Kirsty says

    I’d celebrate with my mum! No particluar reason just celebrating time together while belting out a few of Tina’s greatest hits <3

  5. Erin says

    I’d love to spend this special evening with my dad. He is such a good man, and I’d like to take him out to celebrate! Dad loves music and I know we would have an amazing time at Tina Arena. 😊

  6. Mandy Howard says

    In a twist of irony, I would take my ex partner! We enjoyed a close 10 year relationship and have remained the very best of friends. Having recently endured our own individual heartbreaks and turmultuous times, we each deserve a night of celebration and fun! There is no-one I’d rather dance through life with than the person who has stood by me through it all, and I’m sure she would agree. Champagne, Tina, and friendship makes for an incredible night of fun!

  7. Catherine says

    I’d celebrate Tina & Lanson Rose’s collaboration with Bonnie. We were a few years older than Tina at secondary school & have followed her stellar career. She is an inspiration to women as she has managed her life balance so well with her singing.
    Bonne chance pour moi!

  8. sue pollard says

    I would love to take my hubby as the most incredible date night to say thank you for always putting his family first and sometimes stretching himself that little bit more. We have grown up watching and loving Tina Arena but it was my husband who introduced me to her incredible song writing skills. An incredible women who is compassionate, adventurous and a wonderful role model.

  9. Andrea Leonhardt says

    I would celebrate the evening with my 19 year old son, who is more than a mother can hope for. He has had his share of disappointment this year, but he always knocks my socks off with his resilience and enthusiasm. I would love to share my love and admiration of Tina, with my boy Jack.

  10. says

    I’d take my very good friend my mum. She has been there for me for decades. It’s a good excuse to celebrate all she has given up for me. ❤️

  11. Nicole Schneider says

    My bestie and I think it would be fabulous
    To meet Tina as she would dazzle us
    We have loved her style
    It has made us smile
    Since the beginning of young talent time
    We could share a bubble and hope not to get her in trouble
    Pick us for a lovely friendly double

  12. Bernni Davies-Jackson says

    I’d love to take my sister, we have both had some struggle recently and some bubbles, an amazing night out with Tina Arena would be the perfect escape for a few hours

  13. Carole says

    My husband… because he doesn’t realise how amazing he is as a partner and a dad. He always needs a little confidence boost. That would be perfect! And also, he shares his birthday with Tina 😉

  14. Robyn Jokic says

    I would take my eldest daughter, she is amazing how she juggles work, 3 children a home/husband while creating her own cake business. The night off she would remember for a long time as we have both followed Tina’s career together.

  15. Ellen says

    I would take my sister for too many reasonsI can name here .. Losses and gains
    Births and loss of. Loved ones
    We both Love Champagne and music
    And July the 25th is my birthday and hers 21s August …

  16. Alison says

    Wow – amazing gift!! I would take my bestie of 36 years as living in 2 seperate states getting together is always a wonderful excuse to celebrate life and lifelong friendships 😊

  17. Stephanie says

    Mum LOVES Tina Arena, her songs really define my childhood growing up in Australia – dancing in the living room to Sorrento Moon. I had three brothers and hilariously they all knew the words to most of Tina Arena’s songs as well. Such wonderful memories. It’s my Mum’s 60th this year and it would be unbelievable if we could arrange tickets as a surprise for her!!! She would just love that.

  18. Stephanie says

    Mum ADORES Tina Arena – such fond memories growing up with the songs blaring throughout the house (I have three brothers and hilariously they all know the lyrics to Tina Arena songs!!) Mum’s favourite was Sorrento Moon closely followed by Now I Can Dance, reminds me of dancing in the living room together before dinner – just the best. Such wonderful memories. It’s Mum’s 60th this year and what a special surprise tickets would be!! She would just love that.

  19. Melissa Coppock says

    I would take my new boss and first friend in Canberra. I’ve just moved here for a fantastic job opportunity – reason to celebrate – and my boss has been fantastic in showing me around and settling me in. She has just been promoted herself and moved into a new home with her partner – major life milestones that deserve a champagne celebration 🥂🥂

  20. Dru says

    I would love to take my lovely girlfriend Juls who after nine months of horrific morning sickness, had her gorgeous baby boy six weeks ago. I think we both deserve a mummy’s night out! 🤞🏼

  21. says

    If I was to win I would take my neighbour and friend Claire. Between us we are raising 6 teens . As everyone knows teens stay in they’re rooms and just expect you to be Uber Mum and Uber Eats . It would be great for us to do something for us 😊

  22. Michelle Green says

    I would love to take my wonderful husband, Wayne, who is the most amazing partner to me and Father to our daughter. He washes, cooks, cleans, does my daughter’s hair, shops and works long hours on top of all that. We haven’t had night out alone in over 5 years and it would be such a luxury when we both work full time, in mentally and physically demanding jobs. What a romantic night that would be to spend it together at Tina Arena’s ‘Innocence to Understanding’ Concert, when she is one of our favourite Australian artists.

  23. Dee Susan says

    I would most like to celebrate an evening at Tina Arena’s ‘Innocence to Understanding’ concert with my mum because she is the most kind-hearted soul that I have had the opportunity of sharing my life’s unique experiences with and I can’t think of someone who has contributed so much for me and my family with her guidance, support and good humour and well-natured optimism.

  24. says

    Awesome! I would have to take my mate Heidi Rae, she is an amazing friend, mother, business woman and inspiration to me always there with killer advice or a kick up the backside and of course a glass of rose once the dust has settled. An amazing woman who deserves to enjoy the musical talent and inspiration that is Tina Arena

  25. Pamela Votano says

    I would take my husband of 39 years to cheer him up,he seems to have lost his mojo for living lately.

  26. Sonya says

    Thanks for the opportunity I would take my bestie as
    She love champagne and we don’t get much girl time ,
    As she is super busy with 3 gorgeous kids, works 3 days a week takes the kids to all their sport
    And is so giving and caring to everyone around her.

  27. Claire says

    My sister, as like Tina Arena who we”ve admired since Young Talent Time, we have all grown, hit the bottom, bounced back, lived , loved, been broken hearted, had babies or in my case fur babies. We will sing, grow, baste in love and postitve vibes with a glass of Champagne.

  28. Michelle says

    I’d love to take my sister to show her a little extra appreciation it all that she does for me and my little family. She is a fantastic aunty and is always there to help out. And she recently bought her first house, hooray! Only five minutes from my place. That is definitely worth celebrating!
