"She always had that about her, that look of otherness, of eyes that see things much too far and of thoughts that wander off the edge of the world"
-Joanne Harris

My existence at the edge of the cliff felt almost unrealistic, it was the way the movies portrayed it, I wanted to lean forward and have a titanic moment by myself, to feel the cold hair against my warm skin and have my long rapunzel like hair sway with the wind. Then a voice within me whispered it s like the heavens, everything felt too perfect for reality. And this dress was my best friend hugging on to my body and and giving me the small warmth I had desired. This is part of how I had spent my easter holidays, the other half I m looking forward to the easter show, the thought of the show bags, events, rides, and competitions gets me too excited to keep still. I leave you now but not forever, have a lovely day 

Lots of love

geometric prints

Above all prints including floral, stripes, spots and so on geometric is my deepest sensation, maybe its that egocentric side of me that desires something abit futuristic but I am falling in love with these prints. Soften the look with a touch of gold accessories, I couldn't think of a more amazing place to spend the day than the beautiful La Perouse beach. It may take more than 30 years so i could save up enough money to move out here but its view is priceless. My heart flutters at its site, I could even just become a caveman and devour at its beauty each evening as the sun sets a deep orange colour but knowing me I am too attached to my technology for such an idea to exist. So I ll visit this place, 'my sanctuary' as I called it, with a hot chocolate in one hand and a small sketchbook in the other, carefully observing the fine detail of each sight, Its where I like to collect my thoughts and reminisce at its forgotten beauty.

I guess my wardrobe isn't filled with only Black and white clothes after all, i felt like a walking cucumber in this skirt but i found the bright hue very intriguing when i first saw it. So apparently I am being adventurous with my style well according to my last year self at least where colour was a no no for me (what was I thinking?). But somethings don't ever change with me, like the cream top above you have probably seen me wearing 10 million times but still I'm sticking to it like glue and paper because like every superman has its cape to make them feel awesome, I have got me fav top. The jewellery is my basic every day jewellery that I mix&match with different outfits, my little bling bling to a never ending wardrobe tale.

tear me apart & I ll stand stronger

OPSHOP jeans
Absence is to love what wind is to fire, it extinguishes the small, it kindles the great.
The jeans above are from an opshop at George st, I have to admit me in an opshop is like a little kid in a lolly shop, my mouth opens with awe (hopefully not to catch any flies), its like a maze of stunning hidden pieces in a world of wonder. It takes patience but once you find the perfect item, its a feeling that cant be described only felt by the fortunate. Only bought the jeans for $10! ahh my life is complete.

Lots of love

New York/ London fashion week

As I sit in my room and sip my 53875398457 th hot chocolate for the day because I am too sick to be going anywhere else, I pass my time watching reruns of New Girl and thank god for internet so I can catch-up on the 2 weeks of fashion shows. Sometimes I just ponder what it would be like being a caveman (woman for my sake) and imagine my life without technology, then I just nod the thought away. These are the stylists that I adored the most, to be honest they are all amazing. Dig in deep with details of colour block coats, layers, bold geometrics, statement jewellery, combined with hues of ladylike colours for a softer touch.

"Forgive others not because they deserve forgiveness but because you deserve peace"
-the wise monkey

I have fallen in love with this quote the first time i read it, its so cute and true :)
Soo my holidays are slowly coming to an end and I am trying to grasp on to my last few special weeks where I am not obligated to wake up at 6 am and leave my peaceful cosy bed, then the moment march comes, BAM! everything will come so fast, I ll be drowning in assignments and exams. I have no clue how I am going to survive it, there is a possibility that I wont. There s a little voice inside me that  wants to speak a thousand wise words this year, and slowly I am coming out of my tortoise shell with fresh ideas. How cool does a tribal shoot sound? or a shoot dressed up as the ice queen, yup its all happening and I am so excited I cant keep still. We have booked the date and got a team of makeup artists and stylists, stay tuunned. 

Lots of love

life is a 2 way street

SEED pants

So this is where I have been hiding lately in the streets of the amazing newtown, to others it may sound like a town thats plainly new but it is anything other than new. It s home to Sydney's cutest cafe's, restaurants & bars, leave me here in the morning and I probably wont be finished with it till heaps late at night. Just a story I wanted to share with you guys, recently got my pay a few days ago from work, I'm one of the greatest shopaholics, make a movie out of my life and it 'll probably make millions, so doing the casual roaming and buying my this&thats, I bumped in to a very sweet homeless man. The oxymoron of a person of so little being surrounded by galore's of expensive stores and malls at the greatest shopping centre at QVB made me realise how little we are doing to even out this gap between us, he too is human. Haha so I commando rolled in to the closest grocery store and bought him a bag of fruit, only the best&sweetest kind with punnets of strawberries, apples, peaches and bananas. The expression on his face I could not capture in 1000 words but it still compares nothing to how good I felt the rest of the day. 

Lots of love
