Appropriate title as things have been a little hazy since diving head-first back into uni. I’m a little rusty in terms of the whole studying thing and second year is infinitely harder than first, but it’s alright. I finally feel settled back into Melbourne life (the whole being-homeless-for-two-weeks-thing kind of threw me off) and ready to get a ROUTINE because I am a goddamn mess. My sleeping patterns are that of a nocturnal, overhyped chipmunk and it’s been a while since a meal that wasn’t microwaveable. It sounds pitiful because it is, my friends.
But that’s alright because I’ve got a weekend with nothing on except a date with my laptop and a shit-tonne of sporadic naps. No complaints here except for the numerous ones I’ve already made in this post. Happy almost-weekend x

So it’s been a minute. And by a minute I mean a month (or two) and it feels all wrong. ALL WRONG. I don’t really know where to start, actually, but I suppose here- I’m back in Melbourne (obviously) and despite being homeless for 2 weeks (long story), we now have our dream house (see here) and all is relatively well and good aside from the fact that I start back at uni tomorrow (I know).
So I’m a second-year fashion student and a successful home-renter so you can’t say I haven’t been busy. Really there’s no excuse, though- but if I had to make one I guess I’d go with the fact that EVERYTHING WENT WRONG as soon as I left for Melbourne. We drove from Brisbane and 4 hours into a 22 hour drive, the car broke down. On a blind corner. In the middle of the road. On a hill. In the middle of nowhere. Off to a flaming start, we set off and arrived in Melbourne in high spirits for about 20 minutes- before we realized we had nowhere to live, little to no money, no internet, I didn’t have a phone and Nina had a somewhat broken car.
It certainly wasn’t easy but I suppose everything really does happen for a reason. Even if those things are shitty. Our house is perfect and I can’t wait to do a little room tour video within the next week. I’m a little lost and completely overwhelmed so if there’s anything you want to see, let me know. plz. Thanks for sticking around. x

Happy New Year, folks. If I’m being completely honest I’m kind of a New Year’s scrooge- partially because I think January 1st is just another day and partially because my last night of 2016 was not that exciting. I fell asleep at roughly 10:30 and missed the countdown entirely. Needless to say, I don’t really do resolutions either (see here) but it would be nice to do less stupid shit this year. Just three days ago I went to a festival, got intoxicated, fell over, sprained an ankle, cut open a knee and lost my phone. Then got driven out in a police buggy which is a whole different story entirely. Actually, I finally got around to filming a video so hopefully all will be clear soon enough?
As you can imagine, living in a different state, my friends are currently spread all over the country- so this outfit pays homage to those lucky enough to attend some cool festivals over the holiday period. I really, really wanted to go to Falls but it was always just slightly financially out of reach. Like most things. I’m not complaining, though- free food and a tank full of fuel aren’t so bad. Happy New Year again and may your 2017 be magical!
