My newfound obsession with Gorman is getting out of hand… and I’m really enjoying it. Saw this top and needed the lil’ whales and giraffes in my life. Basically if you put animals or fruit on an item of clothing, I’ll buy it. And speaking of animals, for day 2 of our Brisbane trip, we saw Cai Guo-Qiang’s exhibit Falling Back to Earth. Still mesmerised by the whole thing and reccommend that you go see it right now. Day 2 also consisted of coffee, Chinatown and cab rides. Pretty much distraught that I’ll going home tomorrow.
I’m not normally one to re-invent myself with a new year, but I saw my brittle ends as an opportunity to start fresh. Yep- I gave my hair the chop (again) and it feels so good. I thought for a long time I needed long hair to make up for other things, or for boys to like me, or to distract from other flaws. Yes, I do realise how silly this sounds now, but having long hair as a kind of “security blanket” isn’t that uncommon. But what I’ve realised? It’s just hair. And to be completely honest, I’m just happy it’s not falling out in clumps any more. I’m learning to love the new, healthy me, and all the good things that come with that- like ice-cream, and going to the beach, and laughing and dancing and walking in the rain and staying up all night. So, from the girl who doesn’t make resolutions- my 2014 is going to be wonderful. And I hope yours will be too. Isabella xo
