I have literally had no proper social life and no proper time or money to blog and make pretty creative things, I’ve barely had time to even make music and that means so much to me. I think the sacrifice has been worth it though! In less than a month I’ll be finished with uni and then I’ll be able to work as a registered music therapist!! Eek!
Anyway I’ve still been posting a little bit of my life on Instagram, so here is my life in squares over the past couple of months. See ya on the flip side (last assignment due 17th of November!!)
Hope everyone else is less stressed than I am at the moment, I honestly cannot wait to just sleep and be a couch potato for a while after this hectic few months.
Still coming to terms with the fact that I’m back in freezing Melbourne after spending a glorious month in European summer. Thought I’d post up some snaps since it’s been forever since I posted anything on this ol’ blog. Enjoy!

Didn’t feel like showing my face too much in this post – I’d had a fairly average night before and had a bit of a tough morning so it’s probably better that way! Snapped these pics down a cute street in Alexandria, Sydney with Mel from athletic/aesthetic on a grey day. We managed to get some decent shots, and I had a chance to practise my active wear photoshoot skills too!
I’m really feeling the monochrome black+white theme lately – I’m a bit over the crazy colourful Gormanesque type stuff for now, especially after the whole debacle about Gorman’s ethical standards etc etc.
Guess that makes me a pretty damn good Melbournian right?!
Have a great weekend everyone 🙂
Anna Quan’s new collection lookbook is a dreamy delight for the eyes. Shot in front of a textured rocky backdrop, this collection features relaxed, flowing silhouettes in subtle grey and white, camel and eggshell blue. The delicate combination of wool, linen silk looks absolutely luxurious.
I’m a big fan of the flared sleeves and relaxed, oversized hemlines. These pieces will be perfect for that Autumn transitional period between Melbourne’s warm sunny afternoons and those bitter chill mornings.
Hooray for Aussie designers kicking goals!
Changing your hairstyle is a huge decision to make. Everyone knows that a disastrous haircut can have an impact on a) your self-esteem, b) your face shape and c) your general attractiveness. Okay, maybe I’m exaggerating a bit. But you get the picture.
While I was in Vietnam in January I got my mid-length hair chopped into a shoulder length bob with the back shaved off. It’s kinda radical but I love it to bits. I do really miss the look of long hair sometimes though, and that’s where hair extensions come in handy.
I’d honestly never considered them until I came across Irresistible Me – they kindly sent me some 20 inch extensions to try out and I’m kinda hooked. I did the shoot for this post at uni, so I obviously wasn’t able to style the hair properly. But I can’t wait to use them for special nights out and also cosplay!!

I think I look a lot girlier in the second pic!! I’m looking forward to seeing what else I can do with these clip in extensions as they are real hair, so I can curl them/straighten them etc. Also they are actually rather simple to put in, just little clips that attach to your hair. I mean, the back of my head is shaved and my housemate still managed to get them in…
What do you guys think of hair extensions? Have you tried them? If not, would you?
Have a great weekend my lovely followers and readers!

This is the runway show that was held in the Melbourne Museum underground carpark. How very Melbourne hipster of you, Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival! It showcased some of Melbourne’s more indie/alternative brands – bul, Kuwaii, Limedrop, I Love Mr Mittens, Obus and Ryder.
I Love Mr Mittens
I loved the classic, flattering cuts and the quirky understated prints that came down the runway. Almost everything that was showcased by these brands I could see hanging in my wardrobe this Autumn, and that’s a really important point for me, because often Australian fashion labels send beautiful pieces of art down the runway which are not work or uni or everyday appropriate at all! So kudos for that. I suppose my only real criticism is that the clothes seemed quite ‘safe’ and stuck to a formula. There was no particularly ‘WOW’ factor to anything. But if you find a winning formula, why change it, right?!
Well that’s a wrap! VAMFF is done and dusted for another year. See you next year!
