Hey, hi there! Do you recognise this face? It’s been a while my friends. And I know you were worried, but I am alive, well, and in Texas. Yep. In case you’re new here my mother is Texan and we come back often for family and friends and fried things. Lots and lots of fried things.

And my favourite place to hit up in the US? Urban Outfitters, forever and always. I know all Americans are probably rolling their eyes right now but it’s a novelty for me OK?! I picked up this dress (worn as a top) and these kick-butt pointy boots that hurt but were $30 so #worthit #beautyispain!

Just to let you all know I’m back at the ranch (using this in both a literal and humorous sense- God I’m funny) and hopefully back into the swing of things. If you have any post requests plz leave them down below because creative juices are lacking rn. Love you all and hope you like the new blog makeover! xx

embrace the lace

There’s something unquestionably magical about lace when it’s done right. I’m not talking about the kind reserved for your grandmother’s curtains, or the kind reserved for the deepest, darkest corners of the lingerie department, but the delicate, feminine, timeless kind. The Sunday morning, light streaming through the open windows, crumpled white bedsheets, boyfriend sweater and that little lace bralette kind. Wow. Maybe I should have written today’s descriptive essay on lace bralettes? The fashion world seems to be pretty on point with their lace game (not at either end of that slightly scarring scale) and this crop top is no exception. After wearing it out on Friday night and being asked if it was Lover (aka the high-end lace experts) I’ve fallen in love…r. But thankfully it’s Missguided and even we peasants can afford it.

Referring to my essay anecdote earlier, today was one of the two days of hell us Queensland students have to sit through. The Queensland Core Skills test, according to teachers, determines a large chunk of your future. It’s safe to say we’ve all been under a lot of stress so my heart goes out to all QCS sitters and Year 12 students right now. One. More. Day. I’m going to prevent a ramble, have a shower and get some serious REM. So much love xo

Here we have an absolutely blinding visual assault of colours for something a little different. I shot these last week, proceeded to edit them and realised I was too tired/cranky to fish through and find the good ones, thus completely forgetting about them all together. This is how my brain works.

Made it through my final exam on Friday and celebrated with a little party at Kurt’s on Saturday…. then stayed at his house until Monday afternoon. Needless to say we watched too many movies, drank too much coffee, laughed about really stupid things and didn’t get any sleep. It was a totally appropriate start to the holidays but I’m really glad to be reunited with my computer/filthy room and ready to start ticking off the metaphorical and literal lists I’ve had running for these holidays. Watch this space and enjoy the holidays/this wonderful Monday!
