Oversized denim-actually just denim in general- has been on high rotation for me this long weekend. Primarily because it’s just so freakin’ easy. Saturday was a Three of Something tank and light wash skinnies, Saturday night was a striped crop and high-waisted denim mini, Sunday was a little white dress with a chambray tee over the top and Monday I finished it all off with a bang: double denim and a comfy tee. So I unintentionally spent the entire weekend wearing denim. Is this a bad thing? Not so much. It’s a classic, guys. Just no triple denim, please! Kurt tried to wear jeans, a chambray tee and a denim snapback to dinner once. He took it off after incessant protesting from my end. Obviously.
Nothing exciting to report because does that ever happen? I’m happy to say that I’ve hopefully got something worth posting about on the cards soon (can’t. contain. much. longer.) but for now, I’ll leave you with the exciting announcement that I’m going to clean my room. I actually couldn’t go to bed even if I wanted to seeing as it’s COMPLETELY COVERED in everything I’ve ever owned. I also have a yoga mat laid out for all those home workouts I do (pfft) buried in clean laundry. How I manage to actually do schoolwork, blog and stay somewhat organised will forever be a mystery to me…

Soaking up the last remnants of summer in white lace- because really, what else would be appropriate? The beach is so turbulently moody and beautiful on windy winter days like these. Thank god for the long weekend. I spent all morning recovering from one too many late nights, and the afternoon drinking chai on the beach with mum. Bliss.
Quick update: things are going really well for me at the moment. Happy, healthy and eating plenty of delicious food. I honestly haven’t felt this good in a really, really long time and I can now say that recovery is so worth it. The months of pain are worth a lifetime of freedom! Soz for the sappiness, I just felt the need to let y’all know. We’re all friends here.
Australians, soak up that long weekend… I sure will be. So much love.
PS- I’ve given my Tumblr a revamp and have found myself re-addicted in the process. I post everything from my writing to photos of doughnuts. Check it.
PPS- One of my friends is a finalist in a comp with Mavi jeans to win a trip to Turkey. I wouldn’t normally ask this but if you could swing a vote in Bonnie’s direction she would be so stoked!

After many months and many questions asking when the next one would be out… I’ve finally made a video! Here’s what I hope is a somewhat interesting “day in the life video” I filmed on a random Sunday. Believe it or not it’s actually one of the more exciting Sundays I’ve had lately. I figured me laying in my bed watching New Girl and eating veggie chips wouldn’t be as great?
Probably don’t need to tell you again that school is the worst. But it is, OKAY?! And I’m currently swamped. I planned a complete post for this afternoon but that all ended up flying out the window, along with my last scrap of sanity. And then I had a bubble bath and a sniffle and felt a little better. Also unemployed as of this week. Sad face.
All sad faces aside things will be better tomorrow- FRIDAY. Plus long weekend following that. Woop woop! I’ll be back very soon. Also, if you have any video requests for the future (I am hoping to make more soon) let me know!
These sunglasses provide general leopard-print awesomeness without bordering anywhere near Snooki territory. Mostly because any gaudiness is offset by chic shades like navy and black. Red lipstick helps, too. But if you want to venture into Snooki territory and wear that tiny dress and matching headband you go for it, girl, because leopard print really is my favourite colour. The testimony to animal print was unintentional. I’m slightly overtired.
You see, this post was supposed to go up last night, but I got lost in the haze of a hot shower and clean sheets. And then somehow ended up asleep. Now it’s the second day of winter, the fire’s blazing and the stinky dogs are blissfully curled up next to me on the couch. The usual middle-of-term slump has definitely hit, but is slightly softened by happy moments like these. Life is guuud.

Last-minute photos with Mum in the late afternoon light. Winter has basically been profoundly summery so far, but the sun still sets in the early hours of the afternoon and casts a hazy glow over our little corner of suburbia. These unplanned, quick-grab-the-camera kind of shoots are always fun, because there’s no pressure and usually more room for creativity. I love this offbeat colour combo and the worn-in feel of these boots. Paired with my skull pendant and messy-hair, I think it’s a perfect “toned-down boho.”
I wish I had something witty and entertaining to share, but unfortunately these past two days have been astoundingly uneventful. Somehow I was roped into the school production, I’ll be standing up the back of the dance numbers for most of the weekend. I’m only in it for the costumes, really. Sparkles make me happy. What are your plans for the weekend?

I’m alive! There was a moment there where I thought I might actually drown in a metaphorical pile of schoolwork and not-so-metaphorical floordrobe mountain. But alas, I’m back and donning shades of pastel and jelly shoes. Bubblegum-scented jelly shoes. WHAT. And the scent is strong, in a delicious, strawberry-hubba-bubba kind of way that fills the room whenever you open the shoe box. I’m telling you, these are probably not leaving my feet.
This weekend was a blur of art camp (I was appropriately covered in henna tattoos and glitter- this is why I love art), a rager of a birthday party on Saturday night* and a recovery movie day on Sunday. Plus the current assessment load on us Year 12′s is ridiculous and I spent the rest of the time scratching my eyes out with the end of my lead pencil. Sorry for the graphic imagery. So I’ve got a lot of Tumblr and Pinterest to catch up on, some emails, and the latest episode of New Girl. Nice to be back. I’ll try not to drown again. Goodnight loves.

*My idea of a rager may not be as raging as one initially thinks
Hello internet! I know we’ve been deprived of each other for almost a week now, and it’s been hard. My brain has zero capacity for anything but sleeping, eating and studying right now, add on top of that the school production, two school camps, an art portfolio and my birthday, and it’s basically exploded. I don’t even know if that made sense. See, I told you. Exploded.
I was really stoked to be a part of this little Wish x Honda style challenge, as Wish has been a label I’ve loved for as long as I can remember. I gravitated towards the most formal of all the pieces, as you do, and donned my great-grandmothers beaded cardigan and the Windsor Smith Gillies. Winter here is fairly mild, and add on the fact that I live not even close to the city, and I’d say it’s a pretty close portrayal. I thought it deserved something special- Winter is the best season after all. Hot drinks, cold days, sweaters. Yes please.
Time for sleep because I’m actually struggling to make sense of anything right now. Ok there are probably a few exaggerations within this post, I’ll admit. And to avoid any more I’m signing off.
But not before I thank you guys x 1000 for the birthday wishes, my day was full of love and laughter and cake and all those good things. Being 17 is rad so far. So old and mature and shiz. Love you all and thank you again!

Two posts in two days. On fire! Especially when you don’t think about all the schoolwork I haven’t done. Then I’m really on fire. My huge Saturday night plans (a sleepover at Kurt’s) were foiled, so naturally I used the time dragging Mum around, location-scouting, with a bag full of clothing. I would never usually go for a piece like these pants, but was pleasantly surprised when paired with the oversized denim/oversized beanie combo. So grunge.
…And my Sunday will be spent at school, rehearsing for the production I somehow got roped into. I’m also playing basketball in term three. And writing an article for the school magazine. Can somebody please tell me what possessed me to sign up for these things? The only jersey I’ve ever worn is that black-and-white mesh panelled one when sports luxe was a thing. Help.

The infamous annual school camp struck on Wednesday and as much as I wanted to schedule this post for the days when I was gone, I was up until 12 distressing denim on Tuesday night. Obviously a really important task at the hour, nothing to do with my incredible skill to procrastinate. But now I’m back, relatively unscathed and full of dodgy camp food and positive affirmations. And as much as I’m usually too-cool-for-school (lol) it was kind of… enjoyable?
Navy’s a never-fail. And for a person who wears too much monochrome, it classifies as alm0st-kind-of-not-really a colour. Wore this number out (window) shopping and wish-listing for the impeding 17th birthday on Monday. I’m not sure how I got so old so quickly. No, seriously. I would continue this ramble but spiritual awakening really takes it out of you (thanks a lot school camp) and I need sleep. Yay for the weekend!

Separately obsessed with every aspect of this outfit right now (along with The Great Gatsby and coconut-almond ice-cream, but I figured that’d be a too much) and wearing it all together brings more happiness than an outfit really should. And, to make it all that little bit better, the dress and shoes came from Justa Local Store, a new online boutique that’s changing the world. Not really. But they’re a hell of a lot closer than most of us. For each garment purchased $1 goes to a charity, rotated every month. And while yes, they did kindly send me these pieces, I honestly just think that’s a nice concept. So next time you feel like doing a little online shopping, maybe pop over and help out those in need while you’re doing it. Shopaholics saving the world!
Not going to negative-Nelly all over your night by going into detail about my weekend, because worst weekend ever pretty much covers it. For the first time EVER thank goodness it’s Monday. But, I am kind of drained and feeling bloggers-block coming on so hit me up in the comments with anything you’d like to see. I’m going to find the tub of afore mentioned coconut-almond ice cream, a fluffy white dog and my laptop freshly loaded up with Mean Girls. HAPPY MONDAY.
